I'll add to this as necessary. Please be aware that the rules are new and may need to be adjusted. 1. Do I need the rank of Private to file a Traders Court case? No. That requirement doesn't apply to the FPA Traders Court. 2. What about companies already rated SCAM? Please don't file cases against those companies. They've already been declared to the scams by the FPA, so a bunch of Guilty verdicts won't help. Instead, please leave a 1 star review for the company and also get a thread opened in the Scam Alerts folder. This can get you advice on how to recover your funds and also suggestions on how to complain to the regulators. 3. What does a Guilty verdict do? It turns your 1 star review into a Zero star review. It gets listed on the company's review page at the FPA. Traders Court announcements get mailed out to the entire FPA membership. 4. I still want to declare the company to be a scam. What do I do? First, do a Traders Court case. The Scam Investigations Committee is still around and will take on cases selectively where they think the most good can be done. Usually, 3 or 4 guilty verdicts is needed for a scam finding. The number needed can be greater or smaller depending on the circumstances. 5. Shouldn't there be more questions in this FAQ? Probably. I'll try to add more as they come up.
