Forex trader’s story Forex market manipulators and other scammers often use the same tactics to manipulate their markets and earn money.
But a new twist to the story is the fact that a Calgary man has been paid $19,000 by two other Forex brokers to trade on the cryptocurrency.
According to police, the scammer sent fake emails and forged documents to the forex brokers who are now working to identify the scam.
Forex broker and fraudster Michael Semeni told CBC News he was contacted by police and forex traders who said he had been paid to trade.
Semeni said he was approached by the fraudster and was asked to sign a form acknowledging that he was not an accredited forex broker.
“I did not sign it.
I said, ‘What do you want me to do?’
He said, `Just sign the form and you’re done.'”
I said, OK.
He said he didn’t care if I signed it or not, but if I sign it, you’re going to get my money,” Semenis said.
The forex trader was able to trade a few bitcoin futures contracts before police arrested him.
Semani said the scam is common, and he thinks the fraudsters who are using the scam are not as sophisticated as some other fraudsters.”
