I have seen fully verified accounts with unrealistic gains are they legit or are they somehow faking it
Some are definitely faked. How can today's results be even real if the connected brokers don't exist anymore (or seem to be faked (no reviews, no regulations and so on))? 😉
Let's have a look on the quote from an myfxbook support email I recently got to one of my questions:

It is possible (in theory) to buy your own MT4 server and edit the trading history.
Also, you can find a possible forex scammer with his/hers behavior on the internet. Just ask for something like a real proof or just say something looks suspicious to you, and you'll get huge fake profile attacks all the time, using their multiple fake accounts to spread fake news about you.
They also only praise their systems here and only spreading fake news, sometimes they also look like bot-texts: 100% copy/paste everywhere (and only on suspicious looking 'too good to be true' results), even on FPA they're now aware about it (see my screenshot attached).
