Kangs Solicitors have been instructed to represent a client who is being investigated by the City of London Police in relation to a Binary Options trading fraud and money laundering.
It is alleged that our client was a senior broker of an investment scheme based in the City of London. Potential investors were being cold called and advised in relation to Binary Options trading as an alternative investment. It is suggested that investment opportunities were misrepresented and the level of potential returns was inflated. It is further alleged that trading platforms, which investors used to place trades, were manipulated in order to cause the investors to lose their money.
Police have received complaints from over 150 investors. At this early stage it is thought the alleged fraud exceeds £2million.
What is Binary Option trading?
The definition of binary in the Oxford Dictionary is “something having two parts”. Binary Option trading has only two investment possibilities. You either predict the rise or fall of an asset. Choosing an asset is the first step of the process. For instance, if you have an interest in gold prices, you may choose to place a binary investment in gold.
What assets can be traded as Binary Options?
The following can be traded as Binary Options:
- Forex: Combinations for all the major currencies such as, for example: USD, EUR, GBP, JPY and AUD.
- Indices: Such as Dow Jones, Nasdaq and FTSE.
- Stocks: The stocks of the largest global companies can be invested in as a Binary Option trade such as, for example; Google, Nike, Deutsche Bank and British Petroleum.
- Commodities: Such as Gold, Silver, Rare Earth Metals, Diamonds, Oil, Corn and Coffee.
