At one of the established and well-known websites, one of the authors Mr. E who were scammed by Option 888 puts up his story. He opened an account in December with EUR 500 within a fortnight someone from Option 888 called up and informed Mr. E that he will be his personal broker and was one of the best in the office. Mr. E invested 4×50 EUR and made EUR 156 profit. The manager informed that it is too little money, and on his recommendation, Mr. E invested another 2500 EUR. Mr. E made a profit of 264 EUR within few days. Again he was told to invest and he invested 800 EUR and made a small profit. In last week of Jan, he called up and said we must make a good profit. The manager informed that there is a lot of changing going on and you better shift to a new forex platform. Though Mr, E did not understand much but seeing a profitable association till now he agreed to deal in forex with 3000 EUR. He told him to wait for few minutes and will call back but did not until evening. When Mr. E called back no one picked up the phone, e-mailed him, still no reply. He called up helpdesk and through he contacted and came to know virtually all his money was gone in one affair. At presently there are only 380 EUR left in his account and no one wants to work with that small amount.
