The Economic Crime Division of the police authorities receive many enquiries about ‘options trading’ abroad

The Economic Crime Division (Økokrim) receive almost daily enquiries from people who’ve lost large amounts of money after acquiring binary options in foreign companies.


According to Økokrim, people often get threatened after investing in binary options in fraudulent companies that appear to be legitimate, reported Dagens Næringsliv (DN) economic newspaper.

‘In particular, adult women are being increasingly persuaded to invest in these binary options. In many cases,the money involved amounts to  millions of kroner. Often, the threats start when victims wish to pull out of the options’, the leading State Attorney of Økokrim, Truste Stanghelle, told DN.

The threats tend to be along the lines of the victim being in danger of losing all of their investment  if they don’t pay  more, or that the companies claim that the victim owes them money.

Legal form of online trading

Stanghelle said that despite the seeming professionalism of providers, the investment plans offered are often nothing but purely fraudulent.

‘They may be offered through the mail, or there may be ads on Facebook, or elsewhere on the net. There may also be people who’ve been met online, who later come up with offers. It may start with a lower amount, for example 20,000 kroner, and can end up being a million,’ said Anne Dybo, an adviser in Økokrim.

Binary options are a legal form of online trading. Stanghelle can’t judge how many in Norway today have been affected  by  this. She assumes that the phenomenon is too new to be able to assess the figures.

    I have been scammed and scammed and scammed again. I invested with four binary companies and lost all of my investments totalling 290,000GBP. Then I was contacted by someone offering help – a company who specializes in binary recovery. I was scammed by them again. By the end of it all I had lost all of my savings and I was in serious debt. I was desperate for help and that made me vulnerable to recovery scams. My husband is not around anymore and I have an 8 year old son with learning difficulties. The pressure of being a single, working mother with a child who needs so much additional attention and support became overwhelming for me. I also felt too traumatized to trust anyone else and I was very afraid, but I had no choice other than to trust Geminihacks.com They have been incredibly helpful and supportive and also very understanding about all of my fear and concerns they helped recover all of my funds back within a week using unethical means I feel quite , tremendously joyous about the decision to use Geminihacks.com. I really hope that others do not have to go through what I did, and I wish that I had realized before things were so bad that I was being scammed. I hope my story might help others to not be fooled the way that I was.
