What is the point and where are the benefits when you work with Brokers through a Custodian company?

Practical examples of dangers and scams, traders like you have suffered from.

There's no denying that all traders are trying to make a profit in what is now a very volatile market. To get ahead and access better trading conditions, most of the Traders/Investors reach out to FX or Binary Options Brokers without doing a proper research on their location, Legal Company Registration and Licensing.
Below you will find feedback and posts from real Traders whose trust and ambition for gains from market opportunities was betrayed and abused in the most unethical ways.

Problem 1 - Broker going in the Dark

Story: “This particular trader explains that they put themselves in a transaction risk. After establishing a connection with a binary options company (dubbed Option Prime), the broker disappeared on Monday, May the 5th. The trader wasn't able to get in contact with anybody from the brokerage. All the emails they sent came back through the postmaster delivery service (in other words, undelivered). There was no Internet information on the brokerage, including no reviews.
Disheartened at the situation, the trader joined a popular trading forum to ask whether someone else had had an account with Option Prime. Pointing out currency risk as a pressing issue in Forex trading, the trader admitted they "felt like the only customer" of the broker gone dark.“

Problem 2 - Not accepting my Withdraw Request and taking off with my deposit

Story:“I made a withdrawal request for £1127.99 and nothing was done for 10 days! Despite the fact that it says "same day withdrawals" on their website. Then after those 10 days, my account was taken over and trades were placed without my knowledge or permission. As a result, all the money was lost – safe from a remaining £27.99 that couldn't be withdrawn, due to the broker placing a minimum of £100 for eligible withdrawals. The trader admits they hadn't put any efforts in foreign currency risk management. My email and phone number have been blocked by the company and they are refusing to deal with the situation.”

Problem 3 - Open To Exchange Rate Risk by Paying with A Credit Card

Story: “Last Thursday (June 2nd, 2016), I wanted to invest $250 USD in binary options to give them a try. When I was contacted by ANGEL MORALES from that company, he told me that I could be promoted to silver level and they would give me a bonus. He never told me that my credit card would be charged. He cheated me. Now I'm in big trouble because I have this big charge on my credit card that I can't pay. “
Story: “My account manager had asked me for $10,000 for himself.When I refused, he took my investment and disappeared forever. I lost my investment and no one in OptionRally had helped me to this moment.. be careful”

Drawing Conclusions From Such Events

While these traders' painful experiences might seem like rare cases, you would be surprised by how often such scenarios play out in the trading world. They can happen to anyone, regardless of location and deposit size. You might remember how big brokerage companies like Alpari UK and GF Global went bankrupt, taking down with them hundreds of trading accounts. Human errors, insufficient risk management and volatile markets can befall any broker. As a result, your trader account can suffer too.
