Pack Options has stolen Tens Of Thousands of Dollars from unsuspecting people. They start with their "Consultants" on Facebook who reel in people who want to start learning the binary trading business. My Consultant started me out with $200 and it quickly grew to $2500. Over a 2 week period it went up to $6800. During that time he/she said the signals were upgraded to the cost of $150.00. Then Pack Options emailed me and said the signals that were upgraded caused a virus and the software fix was $350. They wanted the money sent via Western Union or Money Gram to random people from Mass to Pakistan. I started ranting about the costs and calling them out. They were getting quite frustrated with me. I threatened them with everything I could think of. They finally said that with all the ranting and raving and threats, they were going to send me an extra $10,000 to not say anything to anybody and pretend this never happened. They took a pic of a check made out to me for $16,800 and sent it to me. Gave me a tracking number. Next thing I know I get an email from the courier service that I need to pay a Clearance "FEE" of $1200 in order to get the check out of the UK to the United States. There is no such thing as a clearance fee. Pack Options said we sent you a check it's out of our hands. I had the pic of the check analyzed and it's fake. I've been emailing them daily for 2 months to no avail.

No broker on the planet is going to pay you a $10k fee to be quiet about a problem, especially if the problem is for less than 10k.

They want you to pay a clearance fee to send a check. That's a standard trick in advanced fee fraud, also known as Nigerian 419 scam. I'll get back to that in a moment.

Currently, PackOptions.com claims to be under Cysec license 248/14. The real holders of that license are displayed here:

http://www.cysec.gov.cy/en-GB/entities/investment-firms/cypriot/40633/

I suggest reporting PackOptions to HoliwayLTD.com and 10Trade.com. Make sure to get a screenshot of the fake license claim on their home page. Let Cysec know about this too. Maybe we'll get lucky that they'll issue an official warning.

Moving back to the source of the company, a simple WhoIs gives away these amateur scammers:

Registrant Name: Melody Ovaro
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: no 11 onasco close Igbinuwa Rd
Registrant City: benin
Registrant State/Province: Edo state
Registrant Postal Code: 300271
Registrant Country: NG
Registrant Phone: +234.08034678622
Registrant Phone Ext:
Registrant Fax:
Registrant Fax Ext:
Registrant Email: adrienmerkley@gmail.com

As you can see, they aren't from a Cyprus or their claimed address in the UK. It's a poorly edited version of the 10markets.com website and is really operated from Nigeria.

Oh wait, Look what I found on their website. When I was checking the website I got some testimonial on their home page, let me take a screenshot first

because they gonna remove it as soon as they read my post here.

Now I run the search on those images and here are the source links of real pictures as they used their clients for the testimonials

Same images I found for other brokers website as well, S basically they used the same website theme and forget to remove default images. Find the below website for same theme and images along with screenshots.

WOW thank you so much!! You have given me some great information! I sincerely appreciate it. I found the CEO of Holiway and 10Trade. Emailed them and asked why Pack Options was operating under their license, They said they had reported them. Then I hit them up with the other 3 and asked about the similarities of 10Trades home page compared to the other 4. The guy that replied was the one below the CEO and he copied some other people. I usually "Blind" copy if I don't want the receiver to have more contact info. DOH!! The whole thing just smells.
