The public should be aware that TradegluxFX (tradegluxfx.com), FPA already warned about this scam here, rebranded to a new copy-paste scam: BitGluxFX (bitgluxfx.com)

The https://bitgluxfx.com/Default.aspx is identical to the previous one. Domain big data:

https://domainbigdata.com/tradegluxfx.com (Nigeria)
https://domainbigdata.com/bitgluxfx.com (unknown)

More importantly, both contain info on how to contact the domainers. So, the contact forms:


(funny thing, this worked and now it does not...)


This, however is a blatant lie:

This fake registration does not exist. It's a forgery.

BitgluxFX scam offers copy trading services (hundreds of...), as per below:

But guess what happens each time one elects a trader of his choice - you go to this page, every single time:

This RoboForex does not have much of a reputation on FPA: roboforex on FPA, but at least there's a CySEc license, and place to complain (or try:rolleyes:). Also, some insurance is mentioned, 5 mn EUR?

Stay clear away. Contact RoboForex for clarification of links to their platform. Report to whom ever you deem necessary.

The first registrant is in Nigeria indeed. But the second is not unknown, it's in UK:

But a very young page; just 1 month old. I'd never trust something like that.

Also all the RAMM (Roboforex) accounts might not really be connected to them. I don't see any IB connection to them (there are actually no affiliate-links to Roboforex). It looks like they just copied the whole CopyFX-page into their own page.
Have a look, those two pages are completely different: https://bitgluxfx.com/trading/signup.aspx and https://my.roboforex.com/en/register-copyfx/
This could be a straight copyright infringement from bitgluxfx by just copying another well known page. I've seen such infringements on Myfxbook and even on Instagram before, where other users with slightly different names told the people that they are the correct contacts/real managers for "buying an EA" or "registering an account" on a broker. It's easy to blame the broker instead the scammer if something bad will happen. The scammed people will think it's the broker itself, but at the end it isn't, because some scammers work with "copycat webpages" (like this one here) hiding their own real identity behind well-known names. ;)

I believe it leads to RoboForex register page? At least it did at the time of posting. RoboForex should react to misuse of the brand, if that's the case.
Would be good if they looked into it...

All the links are not affiliated to Roboforex (there's no "?a=..." in the links).
The content from CopyFX was most probably just copied (actually stolen) by BitGluxFX, so they have some web-content to show to their possible victims.
And yep, it would be very good if Roboforex would have a look on it asap. As said, I guess here we see a real copyright infringement because they actually just copied a whole page (Roboforex' RAMM/CopyFX page) into their own webpage without being affiliated to them.
