    All victims of online financial fraud, no matter what country they are in, should file a report with econsumer.gov - Your site for cross-border complaints.

    eConsumer.gov doesn't investigate. Instead, they keep everything on file and share it with regulators and police agencies around the world. A complaint from one country may contain the critical piece of evidence an investigator from another country needs in order to go from investigation to action.

    Of course, complaining to payments processors, banks, and your country's police and financial regulators is also a very good idea. Too many people say "Police and regulators don't do anything." I say that without enough evidence, police and regulators CAN'T do anything. Not complaining helps the scammers.

    Very good advice.
    If you have sent money via a credit card you must notify the card company immediately you realize you have been caught in a scam. There is a good chance the card co will refund your deposit and you have a major financial institution now going after the crooks.
    I think it is a travesty that criminals like YoutradeFx are allowed to continue using legitimate financial services like major credit cards to facilitate transfer of funds from victims. This needs to stop immediately!
    They actually had the gall to brag they have been doing this for 7 yrs now and won't be stopping anytime soon!

    Also search engines like Google and Yahoo are aiding and abetting a crime to allow paid ads for these criminals on their websites. They should be sued and prosecuted also for being an accessory to a crime.
    We as victims need to get organized and arrange class action lawsuits against these criminals.
    Together we are more powerful than trying to act alone.
    Sites like FPA are doing a great job trying to alert and warn future victims but not enough is being done to help people who are already victims of these crimes.

    I too am voting for these two: YouTradeFx for hacking FPA files; CapitalOneForex for using a name that is easily confused with a bona fide organisation.
