Good work. Many of us are trying to identify the real names of our binary options persecutors, so that we can persecute/ prosecute them in court. Any chance of getting some names from Option.FM? I would assume the list would have an awful lot of common names.

You are quite correct as I have seen a gentleman on LinkedIn who was a "broker" for about a dozen different binary option companies. It is sickening how they do this...just a travesty for everyone losing money to these scam bags!!

This seems a major break through as we see a lot many complaints in scam alert folder are mostly related to this scam broker. I am thankful to FPA for compiling such informative post.

From all of the above messages, I see one person saying he is having difficulty getting a return of his deposit (since BdB closed). I'd like to hear if anybody has actually received their deposit back (since BdB closed). Are there others who are having difficulty? Any predictions on what % of customers will get their deposits back?

Hi,
I have an ongoing complaint with Banc de binary about how my money was lost, they have just emailed to offer £500 to close the complaint.

I initially invested £5250 and managed to withdraw about £500 when I realised they would never help get my money back, unfortunately it was too late to go through a chargeback.

Has anyone else been offered a settlement?
I'm not sure what else I can do, as I don't have any money for legal fees!

Advice appreciated.

I came across FPA only after I deposited near to US$35000. However I consider myself lucky, better late than never. After reading through what many had experienced, I requested for withdrawal, and refused to pick up any calls from BDB so that they couldn't talk me into taking the trades with them... I finally received my withdrawal, I requested on 9 November, and received on 16 December. Yes, more than a month, but that's better than not getting any money back.

On 16 January I read this thread, so I requested for the withdrawal of the balance fund in my account, not much, just US$100+. They sent me an email on 17 January approving my withdrawal, and I couldn't log on to my account from then on. The fund was in my account early this week.

You are lucky to escape Banc de Binary and its affiliates like OptionFM, Iamsmall. Most of the victims of the binary options "industry" lost pretty well all of their money, and a recent well publicised suicide by a Canadian investor attests to the damage done to the lives at the other end of these crooked roulette wheels. To quote extracts from a Times of Israel article in Dec 2016:

"In a March 31 press conference, the Paris prosecutor estimated that binary options and forex fraud against French citizens amounted to €4 billion over the last six years." and

"The AMF (French financial regulator) told The Times of Israel by phone that even among forex companies overseen by “serious” regulators like the AMF or the British FCA, 90 percent of clients lose their money due to the highly speculative nature of such financial products. As for unregulated binary options and forex companies, 100 percent of investors lose their money. The companies regulated by Cyprus (which include many forex firms as well as almost all regulated binary options firms) tend to resemble the unregulated firms",

Watch this space for international criminal cases - as published on this FPA site, the real names of the false personas of account managers and other employees are being revealed, and there may not be many places where they can hide.

There are going to be a lot of shiny bracelets for a lot of people soon, IMHO. I was also lucky to get my full deposit back, but from a different options company.

Before making a decision, inform Cysec and the Cyprus Financial Ombudsman of this "generous" offer. Make sure to let the police and financial regulators in your own country know about it too.
