This company has taken my money claiming to match it and then advises unsuspecting clients to make large investments and all money is lost. They do not respond to requests for withdrawals and do not care about teaching clients about trading. DO NOT TRUST THEM!!!

I have a string of emails from other people who had similar experiences with this so-called company. RED TULIP IS ALSO RECEIVING MONEY ON BEHALF OF MAGNUM OPTIONS SO PLEASE BEWARE!

Hello Everyone,

I checked the FSR long before investing anything with them beyond $500. You must check out the clearing house RedTulip not Magnum Options. And, as far as I understand, for the exact reason that they are neither registered nor regulated you all have but only one option -- to launch class action by assigning legal counsel to your case.

If you dig further on RedTulip and afflicted companies to Magnum Options you will surely find the name of that notorious man I discovered is behind these pop up brokerage firm.

Good morning


Yes I signed a document they called Binary Money Mind and cancelled it when he lost $40K over night on some useless trades.


Nevertheless, please see the response from the FCA Institute below.


Dear Mr Solomon,


Thanks for your email where you contact us about a firm called Magnum Options. I was so sorry to read about the amount you gave to these people.


Checking our records


I have no information about who Magnum Options or Jason White is when I check our Financial Services Register, which is a database of all the firms we authorise. If we’ve got no records of them on our register, it would indicate we don’t authorise them to provide investment services to retail consumers in the UK.


Unfortunately this could also mean that this company or individual might not even exist. Scammers can make up elaborate stories to try and trick you into sending them your money.


Protect yourself from unauthorised firms


If you deal with a firm we don’t authorise, you run the risk of dealing with an entity that is not complying with our rules to ensure you’re treated right and protected. They wouldn’t be taking part in the Financial Ombudsman Service and Financial Services Compensation Schemes if anything goes wrong either.


More information about why you should only deal with a firm we authorise and how double check this is explained on our website.


Letting us know more


I can’t see that we’ve got any warnings about Magnum Options on our website. If you’ve got information about who they are, please show me because we might be able to use it to warn consumers via our website.


Contact the Police


If you’ve been the victim of a scam, you’d need to report this to the Police. You can contact the UK Police via Action Fraud, which is the UK’s national fraud and cyber-crime reporting centre.


The Police will be able to help try and get your money back, and are the appropriate organisation to contact if you want to prosecute an individual for fraud.


Thanks again for your email. I hope this helps you.


How was your experience with us?


To help us improve our service, I’m interested in finding out about your experience with the Contact Centre today.


I’ll send you a link to a survey and I’d appreciate it if you could take a few moments to share your feedback on the service you’ve received from me.


Yours sincerely,

If the deposits were by credit card, call your card's issuing bank. Ask to speak to the fraud department. Explain exactly what happened and ask if a chargeback is an option.

If they say yes, follow their procedure. If they say know (some bank employees don't understand that there are more types of fraud than unauthorized charges), you may need to seek professional assistance - such as from WinChargeback.
