Above are two email send to me, one from 24 Options telling me that there was over 94,000 GBP in an old account that Security and exchange had exacted a fine for not filing my trading and if I wanted my money the money I had to pay the fine to them and they would send it to SEC and would send my money to me. The amount owing was over $8000 which I paid. Then 24 Options acknowledged the receipt of the money but said SEC had a record of dealing with other companies so they asked for the list of all companies I had traded with onlone.
I sent that list and they said that they found over 330,000 owing to me and now I owed over $15,000USD.
The second email : I emailed a enclosed email to SEC and they responded no such fine or case was found in their New York Division and the there was no such employee named Eric Park. The said this was a fraud and to check with the Cyprus security that 24 Options claimed to have a licence. The Cyprus list of members did not include 24 options nor LMSwiss as members. Here are the two emails One from 24 Options and the other from SEC

Thank you for contacting the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We have received the additional emails you sent to the SEC on June 2, 2017 regarding 24Option and LMSwiss. The emails you received from 24option/LMSwiss said your account would be suspended and you would be assessed various regulatory penalties by the SEC and the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
As I indicated in my Tuesday, June 6th voicemail, the correspondence you received appears to be an attempt to defraud you. The statutes and regulations 24option/LMSwiss cited in the letter are not applicable to your situation. For example, the correspondence references Fair Funds, but SEC Fair Funds are established after the SEC has brought a successful enforcement action against a wrongdoer in order to return money to harmed investors (see https://www.sec.gov/oiea/investor-alerts-bulletins/ib_recovermoney.html).
One of the more common types of fraudulent schemes directed at non-U.S. investors by entities falsely claiming to be registered with the SEC involves requests that investors pay a fee in advance as a condition of closing a proposed transaction (referred to as “advance fee fraud&rdquo After the investor pays the advance fee or similar fees, the entity typically breaks off contact. In the end, the proposed transaction does not take place, and the investor is never paid -- and never recovers -- the fees paid in advance. For more information on advance fee frauds and other types of scams, see “Advance Fee Schemes,” available at https://www.investor.gov/additional...updated-investor-alert-be-lookout-advance-fee.
An additional source of information about firms or entities that claim to be, but are not, registered with the SEC is the SEC’s Public Alert: Unregistered Soliciting Entities (PAUSE) webpage at http://www.sec.gov/investor/oiepauselist.htm. The PAUSE list includes entities that have been the subject of investor complaints and for which SEC staff has determined that (i) there is no U.S. registered securities firm with this name, or (ii) there is a U.S. registered securities firm with the same (or a similar) name, but solicitations appear to have been made by persons who are not affiliated with the U.S. registered securities firm
