There are several disadvantages of forex trading that pose threats to traders. Some of them mentioned below;

     Signal seller forex fraud:

Before learning about signal seller fraud, you should first know about signal sellers. Signal sellers are the companies or experts that make suggestions to forex traders regarding the best time to sell and purchase currency pairs based on market analysis. They ask traders to pay a fee for their services. In signal seller frauds, they charge fees to the traders but don't advise or provide any trade-related details. Instead, they take the payments and disappear with the money. For example, A is a forex trader. He gets in touch with a signal seller, seeking  trading advice. The signal seller asks A to pay fees, and A does as instructed by the signal seller. However, the signal seller takes the payment and is never seen again. After some time, A realizes that his money's gone and the signal seller was a fake one.

     Forex robot frauds:

Forex robots are software programs that perform forex trading on behalf of the traders. They perform with the help of an algorithm. Scammers sell untested-software that suggests or trades randomly. However, these untested software could cause losses to the forex investors.

     Fake forex broker frauds:

Forex scammers pretend to be forex brokers and promote their fake forex investment offers to forex traders through emails or text messages. These offers attract many forex traders, and then eventually these traders start investing their money. After that, as soon as the forex scammers receive the investment amount, they disappear. By the time the victims realize this, their money is already gone. For example, A receives an email regarding a fantastic forex investment offer. That email tempts A and then A gets in touch with the so-called forex broker who is the sender of that email. After conversing with the forex broker, A decides to invest his money. The fake forex broker vanishes after receiving A’s investment. After a few days, A realizes that he has lost his money and the so-called forex broker is bogus.

Warning signs:

Forex traders lose their money in forex scams due to their ignorance. Therefore, warning signs are helpful in protecting traders from these scams. Below-mentioned are some warning signs curated by experts;

  If anybody contacts you regarding a forex investment offer, there is a high possibility that the person could be a fraudster, as genuine brokers don’t really make cold calls like that.

     If a signal seller contacts you regarding their forex trading advice and requests a fee before proceeding with his or her advice, Please don't pay any money to them as you could land in trouble.

     Please do not invest in the forex market if any forex broker contacts you about a forex investment chance. Make sure to check on the qualification and legitimacy of the forex broker.

  You may get an email regarding a forex investment opportunity from some random forex broker. Don't reply to that email or contact the sender regarding the investment chance as it could be a fraud.

 If you come across a forex investment offer promising large returns on investments, don’t proceed further with it.
