0n 4/24/2022, I was scammed of $1000 US, by an online Forex trader using the name of Mr. Luckman Otunuga. He operates through a WhatsApp business account. Tel # 234-916-330-5468. Email : The business name is FXTM Trading Investment Platform, and Luckman Otunuga is the administrator of the WhatsApp group. As Mr. Luckman Otunuga requested, I deposit the money to a ZELLE account of Xavier Atkins. Email : Afterwards, I received an email from that contradicted everything that Luckman Otunuga promised with the trading ( double the deposit within 5 hours ). He said that I had to pay another $2000 , total of $3000 which will credit $6000. I replied that I was not interested. I requested a refund, and he told me that I will receive it back in 30 mins. After 2 hours, I again inquired about it , and he said that it was because of a network issue and nothing more. I told him that I will post the email to the group. I have not received my refund, and I have been removed from the WhatsApp FXTM Trading Investment Platform group. He also changed the settings so that only the administrator (him) could contact the group.

Answer: Hi Anonymous,

Unfortunately, such cold-calling is the first red flag, when dealing with a broker, because legit and regulated brokers simply do not do the cold calling and do not offer or try to convince people to invest, as well as they do not use WhatsApp number for that purpose. Also, it is a common practice for the fraudulent companies to use the names of a popular people (like Luckman Otunuga ) any other real name of the analyst or official representative of the regulated broker, as in this way it’s easier to gain people’s trust and make them invest their money. We highly recommend to check legitimacy of the broker before dealing with it.
