Remote Trading Possible Scam

Hi guys,

I have a question for you. I have an offer for a remote junior prop trader position from a firm based in Cyprus. The deal is:
50,000euros live account.
Minimum trade per day: 1
Maximum trade per day: 3
Minimum or Maximum position size per trade: 100.000 (1 lot)
Intraday positions: All positions must be closed before the end of the trading session.
Minimum Stop Loss per trade: 10pips
Minimum Take Profit per trade: 10pips
Maximum daily loss: €470

The thing is that firstly they told me that I have to pay a one-off payment of €575 entry fee, this will cover admission fees, processing fees for all future withdrawals (does not include Bank Charges) and also provides you with your own personal Executive Trader. And that there is a max ammount I can lose it total, which is 3,000. So if my account drops below 47,000 in any time they have the right to terminate me. They didn't ask about any trading record or something like that. They just saw my CV and got me an offer.

I think sth doesn't seem right. what do you think? Can I really see if the accout will be a demo or live as they claim? I think is might be scam. I really appreciate any help given.

Thanks

It is definitely scam. If company asks you to pay some setup fees offering future job it makes no sense.

I'd always consider it a scam, no matter what it is, if they ask for money up front.

This part alone says it all to me, even before they ask for a fee.

100% a scam!

(n)The only money involved in this transaction is the €575 that you are required to part with.
How do you get a position which you didn't apply for?
How many firms will state their terms that early?(n)(n)(n)

I was offered the same deal except they are asking for €1475 upfront. As soon as I saw this I thought scam straight away. They also asked for a Skype interview, doing their best to look legit. Best to stay clear from these guys.

Hi guys,
Thanks for your replies. Fortunately, I didn't accept the position as something wasn't right with those guys. I also think that it's a scam as none asks for money up front, and as ffsear said the trading conditions they set make it very clear of who they are. Protect yourselves from scammers by doing your research.Cheers.

We are based in Nicosia, Cyprus, and all our contact details – from our management team profiles to our address and telephone numbers – are disclosed in our website www.yesfx.com.cy.

Finally, and to address the point that Danyl raises about the higher price: We started the program charging a promotional fee of €575 for the first month only. The current fee to enter our Junior Prop Trader program now stands at €1,450.

scam or not?

So anyone could confirm if this is a scam or not? What about the people already involved in this program OR that had a bad experience with them?

Please visit our website at www.yesfx.com.cy and see how if you have professional certifications such as CFTs, MSTA or CMT and live track record of at least 3 years, there is absolutely no charge.

YESFX Ltd is giving a unique opportunity to people with no professional certification and track records as well. However the junior position carries a fee to cover admission fees, legal fees and support fees (access to instructors and online community) etc.

We would like to invite anyone from this forum who wishes to access our live trading sessions and speak with our prop traders to email [email protected] and we will issue a GUEST id for 24 hours.

Thank you.

YESFX Ltd.
