How to detect a forex scammer ?

How do you detect them ?

For me, and i start :

#1 - Only backtest on historical data => we don't care at all
#2 - 'A line' as balance curve means that no loosing trades are closed...

What else ?

They often show unrealistic gains with very little Draw Down.

For example:

Another example would be as follows:

Quite often a scammer will try to pass off a DEMO account as a LIVE account, but they will not be able to validate the account.
When pressed for the reason as to why they are unable to verify the account, they will typically use an excuse such as 'Oh I contacted myfxbook because there is a problem with their website....'

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

Hi,

Professional4X, thanks a lot for the advice(s) ! I will try also to see and check some of the profit.

I was posting the posts after seeings and ads for forex-ea on facebook which is posting this stuff :an history of backtrack with a strict and beautifull line ....

And after directly the backtrack history summary.

It's even worse, they even did not put it in a demo account...

For MyFxBook, yes, i think there is a great lack of 'label' where a community is validating the true and correctness of stats shown...

Ps : how do i incorpore image here ?

Very smart replay! I completely agree with your opinion. Really, they show such an unrealistic result only for few weeks.

To upload an image and have it included in your posts use the following steps.

Click the paper clip icon, and then click the browse button to select the image you want to attach.
One you select the image and it uploads, click the 'insert' link.
That will insert the image into your post at the location of your cursor in the message.



That's the way I include the images in a message.

4 - huge / no stop loss

@balticrain: exactly! And I would add:
7. Huge bonuses and rewarding programs and aggressive sales approach. :)

Another thing to watch for is 'people' asking how to buy their products right away.

For example, a new system gets posted and almost immediately you will see posts like 'Oh wow! How can I buy this...'

Example:


Another thing to watch out for is scammers with accounts that never lose.

For the bonus 7.- : yes if you can with broker who are playing with B-Book : your orders don't go the market but stay in the a 'live' which is only a demo live but the broker is paying fees to the liquidity provider...in any case broker needs you to lose fast.

But i don't understand the 1- win rate over 70%....

You may have during some period high winning rate without being a scammer no ?

Also after the winning rate , the TP and the SL, yes....more the difference you have between StopLoss and TakeProfit is high , more the result of your system may reverse 'suddenly' but he doesn't make you a scammer...i guess..it could be also your strategy to strike a lot of win with few profit.

But yes very small profit with high winning rates and huge stop loss expose you to bad moment...
