A parabola of the business of Forex, Inside Option imposed itself on the market with hard selling methods and, after two years of accusations from angry clients of problems with withdrawing credit, stopped replying. All this before one of their representatives was arrested.
When looking for information about a broker, you end up finding negative reviews because it is impossible, when trading in binary options, for unobservant traders not to make a loss.
Partly out of disappointment, partly because it is easier to blame others rather than yourself, it is taken up publicly with the broker.
However, in this case, if you are dealing with a serious company, positive ones overrun negative reviews. When looking for information about Inside Option you can find comments and warnings that are unanimously about the dangers of the company.
A shady history
Inside Option started operating in 2014 in the binary options market. As a company it has been found to be either not regulated, or with unverifiable credentials.
Its registration centre proved to be in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and there also proved to be one in Bulgaria and in London.
On Facebook, there is an emphasis given to the London headquarters, which are indicated as the only point of reference. It can be assumed that this led faithful investors to bet on Inside Option as a broker.
As signalled by different users, the website underwent maintenance from September 2016, while posts on Facebook had already been interrupted from January of that same year.
Telephone numbers have an English code but the call centre that replies is in another country. In many cases people said that the operators were calling from Israel.
When they began to refuse withdrawal requests to clients, they claimed that the rules on bonuses were the reason. Because of this, the client would lose money, despite apparently winning through the trades.
It is a crime that the clients were not informed of these clauses before investing their money. Faced with protests they reacted by ceasing communication, by changing passwords to hinder future access, and then by not responding to emails or phone calls.
The Hard Sell method
Part of this hard selling, beyond the promises of easy earnings, is the convincing of a portion of users that is diverse but largely composed of pensioners and very young people. These tactics begin with simple emails, and are followed by continuous and annoying calls.
