Avoiding a Forex Scam

Getting taken advantage of by a Forex scam can be a very disheartening experience. If you end up buying a system that doesn't do what it says, you can lose a great deal of money. Here are a few things to consider about these scams and how they work.

Unrealistic Claims

When you look on one a website that sells Forex software or a trading system, there is a good chance that you will see some unrealistic claims. While this does not always mean that you are dealing with a scam, it should start to make you aware of the possibility of one. When you see claims along the lines of "Turn $100 into $1 million in three months," there is a good chance that you are dealing with a Forex scam.

No Reputation

When you come across a new system that you haven't seen before, you always want to deal with someone that has a good reputation.

Although you don't necessarily have to buy a system from someone that is a professional system seller, you might want to work with someone that people think highly of. You can find out what others think about systems by checking online forums and resources like Forex Peace Army.


Forex scams can do a lot of damage and hurt a lot of people. Forex system sellers who sell these types of fraudulent systems do not care about the people who they hurt. They only want to sell as many systems as possible and move on. In the meantime, people put the system on a live account and promptly blow it out. If you want to avoid this problem, you need to make sure that you only try out new products on a demo account. If you risk your own money with a system that you haven't tried before, you are asking for trouble.


If you want to avoid the scams, be sure to check out the reviews on Forex Trading Rookie. We do not promote any products that we believe to be scams in any way. While the systems we promote may not win every trade, they definitely are not fly-by-night operations. Unless of course you're flying in a G-6 at night because you made so much money in the Forex market.
