BREAKING – Massive Enforcement Action Against European-wide Illegal Broker Scheme

We just learned from our Bulgarian friends that police has raided several offices of illegal brokers, boiler rooms, and flats in Bulgaria. It seems to be a major crackdown on fraudulent binary options schemes. According to our sources, this is just the beginning of an international campaign against cybercrime in general and illegal brokers in particular. Those schemes have caused thousands of victims in Europe alone.

Perpetrators Detained

According to our information some of the operators behind many fraudulent binary options & illegal broker schemes have been detained on request of German and Austrian authorities. As reported by FinTelegram, illegal broker sites such as SafeMarkets, XTraderFX, or Golden Markets have allegedly defrauded thousands of investors in the EU. Most of the victims have been citizens of Germany, Austria, and Great Britain. Several victims joined our EFRI-Initiative already and their documents delivered important information on these fraudulent schemes.
