FOREX Information

FOREX: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has witnessed increasing numbers, and a growing complexity, of financial investment opportunities in recent years, including a sharp rise in foreign currency (forex) trading scams. A new federal law enacted in December 2000, called the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (CFMA), makes clear that the Commission has the jurisdiction and authority to investigate and take legal action to close down a wide assortment of unregulated firms offering or selling foreign currency futures and options contracts to the general public. In addition, the CFTC has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute foreign currency fraud occurring in its registered firms and their affiliates.

In light of the CFMA, the CFTC has issued an Advisory concerning the offering and trading of foreign currency futures and options contracts involving the retail public, and also revised and re-issued its 1998 Consumer Alerton foreign currency trading to help the retail public identify foreign currency trading scams. The CFTC’s Advisory reaffirms that off-exchange trading of foreign currency futures and options contracts with retail customers by a counterparty that is not a regulated financial entity as set forth in the CFMA is unlawful.

In its separate Consumer Alert, the CFTC warns consumers of sales solicitations appearing in newspapers, radio or television promotions, or attractive Internet websites, touting high-return, low-risk investment opportunities in foreign currency trading, and of highly paid currency-trading employment opportunities. The CFTC urges the public to be skeptical of such claims and suggests some "red flags" to look for, and cautionary steps to take, before trading foreign currency products.

In addition to this Advisory and Consumer Alerts, the CFTC has also issued the following Consumer Alerts that are posted on its Website at

Spam-Free Site

We do NOT spam. Various multi-level marketers & other criminals have recently sent out spam impersonating us, & having our return email address, so that people would complain about spam and cause us to be shut down (a/k/a "joe job"). These multi-level marketers and other criminals have engaged in this form of cyber-terrorism because our telling the truth about their fraudulent schemes was hurting their ability to sell to new victims. Fortunately, our ISP now recognizes that these fake spams are bogus and ignores them, and additionally we are duplicating this site on numerous other servers (including "hardened" servers as well as our own proprietary servers) so that we cannot be harmed by these multi-level marketers and other criminals. Death to Spammers!
