Pilihan Biner: Scam atau Opportunity We8217 mendapatkan kontrak pengkodean yang lebih dan lebih banyak untuk strategi pilihan biner. Yang memberi kita hati nurani yang sedikit buruk. Karena pilihan tersebut dipahami secara luas sebagai skema untuk memisahkan pedagang naif dari uang mereka. Dan pialang mereka memang membuat kesan tidak baik pada tampilan pertama. Beberapa diatur di Siprus dengan alamat palsu, yang lainnya tidak diatur sama sekali. Mereka menyebarkan cerita palsu tentang keuntungan besar dengan robot atau EA. Mereka dikatakan memanipulasi kurva harga mereka karena mencegah Anda menang. Dan jika Anda masih melakukannya, beberapa menolak untuk membayar. Dan akhirnya lenyap tanpa bekas (tapi dengan uangmu). Itu cerita yang Anda dengar tentang pialang opsi biner. Apakah pilihan biner tidak lain hanyalah scam Atau apakah mereka menawarkan kesempatan tersembunyi bahwa bahkan pialang mereka seringkali tidak mengetahui pilihan Biner, dalam bentuknya yang paling umum, sangat berbeda dengan pilihan sebenarnya. Mereka bertaruh bahwa harga aset akan naik atau turun dalam jangka waktu tertentu. Jika Anda memenangkan taruhan, broker membayar saham Anda berlipat ganda dengan faktor pembayaran menang di kisaran 75..95. Jika kalah, Anda membayar saham dikurangi kemungkinan kehilangan pembayaran. Anda tidak trading melawan pasar, tapi melawan broker. Broker membutuhkan Anda untuk kalah, jika tidak, dia tidak akan menghasilkan keuntungan. Bahkan jika dia benar-benar membayar kemenangan Anda, dan bahkan jika dia tidak memanipulasi kurva harga, dia masih bisa mengendalikan keuntungan Anda dengan faktor pembayarannya. Jadi sepertinya bahkan jika Anda memiliki sistem kemenangan, broker hanya akan mengurangi pembayaran untuk memastikan Anda kehilangan dalam jangka panjang. Namun kesimpulan ini adalah sebuah kekeliruan. Ini sebenarnya bisa menguntungkan broker untuk menawarkan payout yang memungkinkan Anda menang, selama kebanyakan trader lainnya masih kalah. Seorang broker tidak memiliki kebebasan untuk secara sewenang-wenang mengurangi pembayarannya. Dia bersaing dengan pialang lain. Tapi mengapa Anda ingin menukar pilihan biner, jika Anda juga bisa menukar instrumen serius? Sebagai pengganti keuntungan pajak di beberapa negara, ada satu alasan kuat yang mungkin membuat eksperimen itu bermanfaat. Biaya perdagangan dari opsi biner hampir tidak tergantung pada kerangka waktu. Jadi Anda bisa berdagang dalam waktu yang sangat singkat. Ini akan sulit, kalau bukan tidak mungkin bagi pedagang eceran dengan broker biasa. Anda bisa menemukan diskusi tentang masalah ini di artikel Scalping. Binary scalping math Angka minimum minimum yang dibutuhkan untuk trading biner dapat dihitung dari broker dan profit payout: Dengan 85 win payout dan tidak ada pembayaran rugi, Anda memerlukan tingkat kemenangan 54 tingkat kemenangan tampaknya dapat dikendalikan pada kerangka waktu singkat. Biaya transaksi dari broker konvensional non-biner akan memerlukan tingkat kemenangan yang jauh lebih tinggi, seperti pada grafik berikut dari artikel Scalping: Anda harus memenangkan hampir 80 dari perdagangan lima menit 8211 tidak mungkin untuk sistem perdagangan dalam kondisi normal kecuali jika Anda memberlakukan tingkat kemenangan itu dengan beberapa trik, yang bagaimanapun membantu mendapatkan zona keuntungan. Jadi, biaya perdagangan yang lebih kecil pada kerangka waktu rendah adalah keuntungan nyata dari opsi biner perdagangan. Dengan semua sisi manfaat frame waktu rendah, seperti lebih banyak data untuk backtests, dan periode penarikan yang lebih singkat dalam live trading. Tapi bagaimana kita bisa memanfaatkannya Ada tiga masalah yang harus dipecahkan. Tiga langkah menuju keuntungan biner potensial Temukan strategi dengan tingkat kemenangan yang lebih baik daripada W yang ditentukan dengan rumus pembayaran di atas. Namun perlu diingat bahwa harga pada kerangka waktu kecil sangat bergantung pada pakan. Untuk berada di sisi yang aman, uji dengan sumber data harga yang berbeda (f.i. HistData, Oanda, dan FXCM) dan tetap beberapa persen di atas minimum W. Temukan cara untuk berdagang secara otomatis. Broker biner sering tidak ingin Anda melakukan itu. Akibatnya mereka tidak menawarkan platform atau API untuk perdagangan otomatis. Tapi mereka semua memiliki antarmuka web. Jadi Anda memerlukan perangkat lunak untuk mengirim pukulan kunci dan klik mouse ke situs web, atau cara lain untuk membawa perdagangan Anda ke broker. Temukan broker yang setengah jalan jujur. Setidaknya satu yang memungkinkan Anda untuk benar-benar mengumpulkan keuntungan Anda. Semua broker biner mempermudah deposit, tapi beberapa mengikuti filosofinya: 8220Jika Anda memberikannya kepada saya, itu milik saya.8221 Lakukan penarikan tes sebelum Anda menyetor dalam jumlah besar. Jaga keseimbangan akun tetap kecil. Periksa peluang broker untuk memanipulasi kurva harga. Semakin banyak pelanggan yang mereka miliki dan semakin banyak taruhan yang mereka hadapi, semakin sulit untuk memanipulasi tanpa menarik perhatian. Ambil informasi sebanyak mungkin tentang broker Anda: Di mana mereka benar-benar berada. Untuk beberapa alasan, penipu tampaknya terkonsentrasi di Tel Aviv. Periksa apa yang pelanggan katakan tentang broker itu 8211 namun perhatikan: pernyataan positif pada forum trader sering ditanam oleh broker sendiri. Semua masalah tersebut membuat opsi biner perdagangan seperti 8220messy8221. Bagaimanapun, metode berantakan yang terkadang menawarkan peluang terbaik. Ed Thorp menghasilkan jutaan pertamanya dengan strategi Blackjack-nya dan dengan metode untuk memperkirakan nilai waran, juga dianggap berantakan dan sulit dihitung. Langkah 1: Sistem Kurva harga tidak berjalan acak hampir sepanjang waktu. Bila biaya transaksi tidak penting, tidak sulit menemukan sistem dengan tingkat kemenangan 54 menit pada bar 5 menit. Anda bisa misalnya memanfaatkan kecenderungan reversi rata-rata dari kerangka waktu singkat. Berikut adalah contoh sederhana (script untuk Zorro): Pada kode C di atas, kita mendefinisikan fungsi objektif individu () yang mengoptimalkan sistem perdagangan biner. Ini mengukur kinerja sistem karena jumlah perdagangan yang menang dibagi dengan jumlah kerugian perdagangan. Jika tidak, pengoptimal akan mencari faktor keuntungan paling kuat, yang tidak masuk akal untuk perdagangan biner. Setup menetapkan periode bar 5 menit, yang merupakan kerangka waktu taruhan kami. Kami menggunakan 20 siklus WFO dan membiarkan pengoptimal menggunakan semua inti CPU tapi satu. Dengan cara ini, pelatihan berlangsung sekitar 5-10 menit selama 5 tahun data. Flag BINARY mengaktifkan perdagangan biner, dan kita akan mensimulasikan broker dengan 85 win payout dan tidak ada pembayaran rugi. Kami memiliki sistem pengembalian rata-rata yang diperdagangkan kapan pun harga saat ini mendekati dari ambang batas 8211 di sini, 1 dari volatilitas terbaru 8211 ke level tertinggi sebelumnya atau rendah. Jangka waktu untuk menentukan High and Low adalah satu-satunya parameter sistem yang kita optimalkan. Anda bisa memperbaiki sistem dengan berbagai cara, misalnya dengan mengoptimalkan juga ambang batas, dengan memodifikasi fungsi objektif () sehingga lebih menyukai sistem dengan lebih banyak perdagangan, dan dengan menerapkan filter yang mencegah perdagangan rezim pasar yang tidak rata-rata. Karena kita bertaruh pada harga dalam 5 menit, kita menetapkan jangka waktu perdagangan ke satu bar. Berikut kurva ekuitas dari uji coba berjalan 5 tahun dengan EURUSD: Sistem ini memiliki tingkat kemenangan 56 dan pengembalian positif yang menakjubkan namun tidak spektakuler. Yang tidak dicapai oleh mekanisme pengembalian rata-rata mentah, namun sebagian besar dengan memperkuat perbedaan harga entry-exit kecil melalui perdagangan biner, walaupun pembayarannya hanya 85. Anda tidak akan mendapatkan hasil yang serupa dengan perdagangan konvensional. Sistem yang sama tidak memperdagangkan opsi biner, namun posisi forex leverage menghasilkan kurva ekuitas yang sangat berbeda (untuk pengujian, memberi komentar pada bendera BINARY dan pengaturan Pembayaran dalam kode): Dengan perdagangan yang sama yang kita miliki sekarang hanya 40 tingkat kemenangan dan keseluruhan Kerugian, karena semua keuntungan perdagangan dimakan oleh penyebaran dan komisi. Langkah 2: Automatizing Bagaimana Anda membiarkan skrip Anda secara otomatis memasukkan taruhan pada saat yang tepat Ini adalah masalah teknis yang tidak terkait dengan perdagangan, namun muncul setiap kali Anda memiliki broker dengan platform berbasis web dan tidak memiliki koneksi yang tepat untuk melakukan automatizing. Berikut cuplikan kode untuk mendeteksi posisi tombol Beli dan Menjual di situs web, dan otomatis mengkliknya: Jalankan skripnya, dan tunggu sampai situs web broker8217 muncul di browser Anda. Kemudian ikuti petunjuk di jendela pesan Zorro8217s. Manapun mouse ke tombol 8220Buy8221 dan tekan tombol mouse sebelah kanan. Kemudian lakukan hal yang sama dengan tombol 8220Sell8221. Script akan menyimpan posisi tombol dan kemudian menggunakan fungsi tombol untuk mengirim klik uji ke kedua posisi jendela aktif. Untuk tujuan pengujian, saya meniru platform perdagangan biner broker8217 yang khas. Anda sekarang hanya perlu merekatkan naskah trading Anda dengan mengklik tombol script, dan menyesuaikan yang terakhir ke situs broker Anda. Ini dibiarkan sebagai latihan bagi pembaca. Dan lebih baik menggunakan versi perbaikan 8211 skrip di sini disimpan sederhana untuk tujuan demonstrasi. Selama perdagangan naskah, pastikan jendela browser tetap berada di latar depan, atau tidak bisa mengklik tombolnya. Untuk ukuran posisi, masukkan ukuran tetap untuk semua posisi, atau biarkan skrip Anda masuk ke bidang ukuran dan kirim goresan kunci untuk menetapkan ukuran individual. Langkah 3: Broker Tentu saya tidak ingin merekomendasikan broker pilihan biner tertentu. Pada akhirnya, mereka semua penjahat 8211 tapi ada yang lebih licik daripada yang lain. Menemukan broker yang tepat juga, ditinggalkan sebagai latihan bagi pembaca. Situs perbandingan broker biner seringkali 8211 mengejutkan, kejutan 8211 dipasang dan dibayar oleh broker biner. Warga AS biasanya tidak diizinkan untuk memperdagangkan opsi biner dengan broker yang tidak diatur di AS. Beberapa broker akan menerima deposit Anda, namun menggunakannya sebagai dalih untuk menolak pembayaran. Jika Anda adalah warga negara Israel, Anda mungkin tidak diterima oleh banyak pialang biner karena mereka tidak diizinkan untuk melakukan kecurangan rekan senegaranya. Kesimpulan Sering kali instrumen perdagangan 8220messy8221 dan hina yang masih bisa memberi peluang saat mereka dipahami dengan benar. Saya mengunggah dua skrip ke repositori 2016. Anda memerlukan Zorro 1.52 atau lebih untuk menjalankannya (skrip juga berjalan dengan versi 1.50, namun versi tersebut memiliki bug yang menghasilkan hasil yang tidak akurat dengan perdagangan biner). Bila Anda sekarang menghasilkan keuntungan besar dengan opsi biner, jangan lupa dari mana uang itu berasal: Bukan dari broker, tapi dari pelanggannya yang kurang beruntung yang mungkin saja tidak membaca blog yang tepat. Ok, menurut pengembang ini adalah perintah MQL4 untuk bertaruh pada kenaikan harga dengan FX LITE: dan kode Zorro yang sesuai: brokerCommand (SETORDERTEXT, BO exp: 60) enterLong (Ukuran) 8220Size8221 Adalah ukuran posisi dalam satuan ukuran minimum broker8217s, seperti 1. 8220BO Exp: 8221 mengatur durasi dalam hitungan detik. Jika Anda ingin mengubah ukuran posisi pada antarmuka web broker8217, sama seperti mengklik tombol: biarkan skrip masuk ke kolom ukuran dan kemudian kirim goresan kunci untuk mengatur ukurannya. Contoh hebat amp Johann 8211 terima kasih telah berbagi. Bagaimana Zorro mengevaluasi pilihan biner? Dari kode, himpunan (BINARY) digunakan untuk mengevaluasi keberhasilan prediksi secara otomatis. Dalam simulasi saya sendiri tentang algoritma yang sama (EURUSD, 5 tahun terakhir, periode 5 menit), tingkat kemenangan sekitar 60 jika rata-rata periode berikutnya digunakan untuk menentukan keberhasilan 8211 namun 52 jika penutupan periode berikutnya digunakan ( Lebih berisik) Juga, beberapa broker opsi biner (seperti IG Index) mengutip harga ambang yang merupakan prediksi mereka tentang di mana harga pasar akan berada dalam 5 menit. Algoritma kami perlu menentukan apakah harga pasar cenderung lebih tinggi daripada perkiraan broker pada saat kadaluwarsa (bukan harga pasar saat taruhan ditempatkan). Ini sulit. Tutup digunakan oleh Zorro. Rata-rata akan salah karena tidak ada harga sebenarnya. Namun data 5 menit sangat tergantung pada pakan, dan kemungkinan Anda akan mendapatkan hasil yang berbeda dengan broker yang berbeda. Zorro menggunakan data harga FXCM secara default, tapi lebih baik saat Anda backtest dengan data harga dari broker yang paling Anda temui. Ini menarik berapa banyak varian taruhan harga yang ditawarkan oleh broker biner sementara itu. Menggunakan perkiraan ambang batas secara efektif akan mencegah sistem algoritmik karena Anda tidak dapat mendukungnya kembali. Berikut daftar lengkap semua broker scam. Mungkin Anda bisa menambahkannya ke artikel Anda: howwetradebinary-options-scams Mutiara langka di lautan pilihan biner Saya juga menyukai banyak pendekatan umum untuk perdagangan yang Anda dan komunitas Zorro miliki. Kudos to you I8217m cukup baru untuk Zorro, jadi saya pikir pertanyaan saya akan memiliki jawaban yang sederhana. Saya mencoba untuk mengubah baris: if (NumOpenLongNumOpenShort 0) dengan if (NumOpenLongNumOpenShort lt 3) dan mendapatkan persentase kemenangan yang mencurigakan lebih tinggi. Karena menurut saya ini bukan karena peningkatan kinerja strategi yang sesungguhnya, apa alasannya? Apakah ada cara untuk melakukan perdagangan (biner) 8211 berbicara tentang mode pelatihan dan pengujian 8211 sebelum semua perdagangan lainnya berakhir Terima kasih dan selamat Lagi terima kasih atas jawaban cepat Saya bermain-main lebih jauh dengan naskahnya, dan melihat fakta penting untuk diperhitungkan di Zorro saat mensimulasikan strategi opsi biner. Saat memilih LifeTime jauh lebih tinggi dari 1 bar, dan membiarkan posisi saat posisi lain sudah terbuka, Anda akan melihat ada sesuatu yang aneh sedang terjadi. Anda mungkin mendapatkan hasil yang luar biasa (tapi sayangnya salah8230), karena kenyataan bahwa secara default Zorro menutup perdagangan saat perdagangan lain berlawanan arah, menempatkannya sebagai kemenangan atau kerugian bergantung pada situasi saat ini (oleh karena itu Tanpa memperhitungkan waktu kadaluwarsa yang ditetapkan oleh LifeTime). Saya pikir ini adalah 8220bug8221, dalam arti bahwa Zorro seharusnya tidak berperilaku seperti itu ketika bendera BINARY disetel. Saya menyingkirkan masalah pengaturan Hedge to 2, yang memungkinkan untuk masuk dan membuka posisi panjang dan pendek secara bersamaan. Mungkin pengaturan Hedge to 2 ini harus dijalankan secara otomatis oleh program saat flag BINARY diset, untuk menghindari hasil simulasi yang salah. Saya memposting info ini ke forum Zorro juga. Bila lebih dari satu perdagangan bisa dibuka, Hedge harus ditetapkan agar tidak menutup posisi dengan membuka yang berlawanan. Jika tidak, Anda bisa keluar secara prematur dari taruhan Anda dan buku keuntungan 8211 Ini tidak otomatis, jadi konsekuensi dari setting apa pun harus dipertimbangkan dengan cermat untuk meniru perdagangan biner. Saya memiliki beberapa pengalaman nyata dengan opsi biner autotrading. Saya membangun sebuah antarmuka untuk Newstrading. Saya menggunakan Forex News Gun dan menyewa server di New York, yang menempatkan saya pada posisi mengeksekusi sebuah perdagangan dalam 1ms setelah indikator fundamental dipublikasikan. Ini adalah sistem yang tak terkalahkan jika Anda meluangkan waktu untuk mempelajari bagaimana pasar bereaksi terhadap data. Saya memiliki tingkat kemenangan yang salah dan dengan risiko yang optimal (Kelly Formula), saya seharusnya menjadi milyuner sekarang. Namun, sekali broker menyadari apa yang terjadi, mereka memblokir Anda dengan pesan kesalahan. Saya akan sangat menyarankan untuk belajar bagaimana menerapkan analisis fundamental dan bagaimana melakukan perdagangan secara manual daripada menghabiskan energi apapun pada opsi biner karena pengalaman saya sendiri. Saya menghabiskan waktu seperti 2000 untuk sewa server, deposito yang tidak pernah saya dapatkan kembali (hati-hati 8211 24option membutuhkan 80 unit setiap bulan dari akun Anda jika Anda tidak melakukan perdagangan beberapa bulan. StockPair juga melakukan hal ini), Winautomation Pro, dan strategi kode khusus (satu Dari pelanggan JCL berbicara tentang 8211 adalah mungkin untuk mengalahkan rasio kemenangan 57 tapi sangat sulit dengan analisis teknis, saya kira mungkin bisa mengalahkan break bahkan sangat signifikan, jadi lupakan untuk menjadi kaya dengan cepat). Namun, saya berhasil membangun antarmuka autotrading yang agak stabil dengan Winautomation. Jika Anda tertarik, saya bersedia berbagi kode saya, tapi butuh adaptasi untuk broker Anda. Artikel yang bagus, saya akan bermain dengan kode ini saat berikutnya saya bosan. I8217m sdh309795gaas di forum Zorro. Teera Lucksanapiruk mengatakan: Apakah ada yang tertarik untuk bekerja sama dalam beberapa hal ini? Saya telah menulis sebuah API nodeJS untuk iqoption, bersama dengan backtester yang memungkinkan algoritma dijatuhkan langsung ke API tanpa modifikasi apapun, namun I8217m masih mencoba untuk mencari tahu Bagian prediksi harga. Strategi ini mendapatkan akurasi sekitar 55-57 saat saya mengujinya dengan data dari opsi iq. Tapi ketika Anda memperhitungkan tingkat keuntungan yang berubah dan segalanya, tidak banyak perdagangan yang tersisa. TeeraLucksanapiruk Di mana Anda dapat menghubungkan zorro dengan opsi iq melalui API Anda Jika memang demikian saya tertarik bahwa saya memiliki 5000 dolar dikurangi dari visa saya ke Optionbot 3.0. Tapi saya belum pernah mendengar kabar dari perusahaan atau dari broker saya yang telah berjanji kepada saya bahwa dengan berinvestasi, saya akan menghasilkan keuntungan yang sangat bagus. Sayangnya saya hanya menerima 1 panggilan dari broker saya yang membuat semacam perdagangan otomatis dan diberi tahu secara khusus untuk tidak menyentuhnya, yang tentu saja saya havent. Masalahnya adalah sekarang saya kehilangan semua uang saya dan saya juga tidak bisa mencapainya. Saya menulis posting ini karena salah satu broker bernama John, dari yang disebut: Optionbot 3.0 menelepon saya pada tanggal 25 Juni 2016 dan memaksa saya untuk membuka rekening di situs web mereka tanpa mengatakan bahwa Optionbot akan menghasilkan 100 PROFIT dari simpanan saya. Saya mentransfer hari itu 10 000 Euro dengan Kartu Kredit. Broker mengambil alih akun saya dan memulai trading. Setelah setengah jam, tingkat margin terancam dan saya menerima telepon dan broker mulai meminta lebih banyak uang. Saya mengirim Euro 5 Euro lagi dari Kartu Kredit saya Pada tanggal 30 Juni, dia membuka 11 posisi yang salah dengan kerugian besar dan saya terbangun dengan semua uang saya hilang. Saya langsung menghubungi broker saya dan penjahat yang membakar semua uang saya mengatakan bahwa dia akan mengembalikan semua posisi saya dan saya akan berhasil menarik semua uang saya. Saya menunggu beberapa jam dan mencoba menelepon John, dan dia tidak pernah bertanya. Hari berlalu, aku mencoba dan mencoba memanggilnya, untuk menulis surat ke emailnya, tapi tanpa jawaban. Saya ingin menangkap broker ini yang merampok uang saya, dan menghasilkan ratusan perdagangan atas nama saya tanpa persetujuan saya dan menghukumnya untuk setiap EUR yang dia hilang, untuk menghukumnya dengan potongan hanya untuk memahami betapa sulitnya menghasilkan uang. Saya masih berharap bisa menemukan keadilan suatu hari nanti, tapi untuk kalian, PLEASE, JANGAN PERNAH REGISTER ATAU BIAYA SITUS SITUS INI: OPTIONBOT 3.0 Pilihan biner adalah produk finansial yang hebat namun ada banyak pialang dan perusahaan yang tamak. Mereka mencuri uang dari orang-orang yang tidak bersalah melalui robot, pedagang mobil dan layanan sinyal. Semua sistem ini biasanya dibuat oleh broker biner pilihan yang tidak diatur.

Scammers benar-benar bisa meyakinkan saya dengan memanggil saya jarak jauh dari Siprus. Periksalah orang ini: facebookTraden-mit-Alex-1111959268911832frefts i think he8217s mencoba untuk menipu banyak orang, dia membuatnya sangat bagus dan otentik.

Chinese Citizen Sentenced to 36 Months For Selling Over 1 Million Dollars of Counterfeit Cell Phone Parts Into the U.S. On September 26, 2016, in San Diego, California, Hongwei Nick Du, a Chinese citizen, was sentenced to 36 months in prison, ordered to forfeit 1.5 million, as well as the cellular telephone seized at his arrest, and to pay a fine of 10,000. Du pleaded guilty to conspiring to traffic in counterfeit goods and related money laundering charges. The Court imposed sentence based on Dus role as purchasing agent and supplier of an Imperial Valley business run by Spanish citizen Octavio Cesar Sana, who was sentenced to 41 months in custody in July. Sanas business, Flexqueen, sold at least 3.2 million of counterfeit cell phone components for years over the internet, and briefly from a store front repair business in downtown San Diego. Du operated as Sanas largest source of supply and Chinese purchasing agent, securing 1.5 million of counterfeit cell phone parts for Flexqueen from manufacturers in Shenzhen, China. According to the plea agreement, since 2007, Sanas businesses sold approximately 6.5 million of cell phone parts and accessories to businesses and consumers throughout the United States. In turn, Sana paid approximately 3.1 million to Du. Sana and Du have admitted that roughly half of those parts were counterfeits. Fraud Schemer Sentenced For Wire Fraud and Illegal Monetary Transactions On August 23, 2016, in Tampa, Florida, Christopher A. Maguire, formerly of Orlando, Florida, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for wire fraud and illegal monetary transactions. As part of his sentence, the Court also entered a money judgment in the amount of 4,938,574, the proceeds of the charged criminal conduct. According to court documents, from at least May 2012 through April 2014, Maguire operated a scheme where he, and promoters employed by him, solicited victim-investors to send him funds via electronic wire or check. The victims funds were never actually invested into the opportunity presented to them by Maguire. Some of the funds were used by Maguire on personal expenditures, as well as payments to his promoters. Maguire also made numerous payments back to certain victims, often enticing these victims to reinvest the proceeds of the transaction, sometimes triggering additional investment of funds by the victims or their associates. Through this scheme, Maguire was responsible for losses of over 4.9 million to over 150 victim-investors. The majority of the victims were located in central Florida and in northern Ohio. Local Attorney Sentenced to Prison for Criminal Conspiracy and Operating Unlicensed Money Transmitting Business On September 6, 2016, in San Diego, California, Richard Medina, Jr. a San Diego-based attorney, was sentenced to 60 months in prison, three years supervised release, and forfeiture of 11,986,892. Medina, Jr. pleaded guilty in September 2015 to Counts 2 and 3 of a Superseding Indictment, charging him with funneling nearly 12 million through his law firms client accounts. According to court documents, Medina, Jr. along with three other co-defendants, conspired to operate as a commercial enterprise willing and able to transfer cash on behalf of third parties. The co-defendants failed to register their money transmitting business with the Secretary of the Treasury, as required by law. In turn, the defendants customers, based throughout the United States and abroad, availed themselves of Medina, Jr. Omar Trevino Caro Del Castillo, Francisco Cuevas, and one other co-defendants ability to collect cash and transmit it anywhere in the world. The co-defendants obtained commissions for their services, extracting a fee from the millions of dollars transmitted. In an effort to legitimize the transmission of the currency, Medina, Jr. opened several Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts in the name of his law firm at national banks (the IOLTA Accounts). By depositing the money into the IOLTA Accounts, the co-defendants intended to prevent the banks from filing accurate Currency Transaction Reports. No less than 11,986,892 in cash made its way into, through, and out of the IOLTA Accounts over the course of 47 deposits between March 2013 and February 2014. Medina, Jr. supervised the receipt and international transfer of these funds with the knowledge or having reason to know that the transactions involved proceeds of unlawful activity. Two of Medinas co-conspirators have already been sentenced, Francisco Cuevas was sentenced to 51 months in prison and Omar Trevino Caro Del Castillo, was sentenced to 27 months in prison. Former Operator of Gardena Casino Pays 1 Million Fine and Forfeits Nearly 1.4 Million for Violating Federal Anti-Money Laundering Laws On August 30, 2016, in Los Angeles, California, the former operator of the Normandie Club in Gardena was ordered to pay a 1 million criminal fine and to forfeit nearly 1.4 million after pleading guilty to violating the Bank Secrecy Act by failing to report large cash transactions to federal authorities. The casino pleaded guilty in January to violating anti-money laundering provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act. The partnership specifically pleaded guilty to failing to maintain an effective anti-money laundering program and conspiring to avoid reporting to the government the large cash transactions of some of the casinos high-roller gamblers. The Normandie Club admitted that its casino engaged independent gambling promoters to locate high-rollers and then steer those gamblers to the casino. As part of the conspiracy, high-level personnel at the casino, including the casinos president and chief operating officer, agreed to avoid reporting to the government the large sums of cash certain high-rollers would bring to the casino. According to the plea agreement, the casino avoided reporting transactions related to the high-rollers by submitting Currency Transaction Reports that named the promoter instead of the gambler, by structuring transactions so that they appeared to be less than 10,000, or simply by failing to record large transactions. During one six-week period in 2013, a single high-roller won more than 1 million from another party at the casino, and the casino conspired to conceal the identity of that high-roller. Westminster Man Sentenced For Orchestrating a Scheme to Defraud Clients On August 30, 2016, in Denver, Colorado, Timothy J. Tucker, of Westminster, was sentenced to 78 months in prison, three years on supervised release and ordered to pay 1,614,302 in restitution to the victims. Tucker pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering. Beginning in February 2010 and continuing until late 2013, Tucker devised a scheme to defraud by obtaining advanced fees from individuals and entities who were seeking multimillion-dollar loans. Tucker operated Assured Venture Group (AVG) and The Financial Group, LLC (TFG), which purported to be in the business of finding funding for multimillion-dollar loans for investment projects through the issuance of corporate bonds. Tucker told people and entities that they were required to pay AVGTFG fees in advance of AVGTFG performing work to find funding for the requested loans and that the fees would be spent only on underwriting, due diligence, and closing costs related to the requested loans. Between February 2010 and March 2013, AVGTFG was paid over 1.8 million in fees on twenty-two different projects, both by individuals and entities. Tucker did not secure funding for any of the projects and did not return any fees on twenty of twenty-two projects. The majority of the fees received by AVGTFG were used for things unrelated to the requested loans, including Tuckers other businesses. U.K. Citizen Sentenced for Role in Overseas Investment Scam On August 29, 2016, in Buffalo, New York, Martin Rhys-Jones, a citizen of the United Kingdom, was sentenced to 72 months in prison and ordered to pay 2,897,130 in restitution. Jones was previously convicted of laundering money derived in a wire fraud conspiracy. According to court documents, Jones, who was extradited from Spain, oversaw a boiler room scam in Barcelona, Spain, which conned investors in the United Kingdom and Canada into buying nearly worthless shares of restricted stock at severely inflated prices. Customers were told they were buying more valuable, regular shares of stock. Approximately 250 investors lost more than 2,900,000 in the scam. A portion of the criminal proceeds were funneled through a bank account in Western New York before being sent to numerous overseas accounts controlled by Jones and his co-conspirator, Arnold Wrobel, a former resident of Buffalo. Wrobel was convicted in December 2015 and is awaiting sentencing. A total of 12 defendants were arrested in the case, four have been convicted. Valencia Businessman Sentenced to Prison in Massive Investment Scam On July 28, 2016, in Los Angeles, Bruce Richard Sands Jr. of Valencia, was sentenced to 135 months in prison and ordered to pay 11,039,404 in restitution. Sands pleaded guilty in April to four counts of mail fraud, five counts of wire fraud and two counts of money laundering. From about October 2007 through the end of 2010, Sands businesses solicited investments in precious metals and collectible coins. Individuals across the nation were solicited through national radio, television and Internet advertising. Sands falsely told investors that the precious metals they paid for would be delivered to them directly or sent to their retirement accounts, when Sands knew that his company, Superior Gold, would not be purchasing or delivering the precious metals. Many investors never received the metals they purchased. Sands induced more than 300 victims to invest approximately 24 million and to suffer losses of nearly 11 million while Sands funded his own lavish lifestyle. Store Manager Sentenced for 5.1 Million Food Stamp Fraud On July 27, 2016, in Macon, Georgia, Michael Paul Atkinson Jr. was sentenced to 60 months in prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay restitution of 5,141,520 for conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with the federal food stamp program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). From 2010 through March 2015, Atkinson operated Mid Way Market in Macon. During that time, Atkinson paid beneficiaries in cash to redeem SNAP benefits and allowed beneficiaries to use those benefits to purchase non-allowed items. In addition, Atkinson taught other workers at Mid Way how to process fraudulent claims. As a result of the fraudulent scheme, the SNAP program paid over 5.1 million in redemptions to Mid Way that should not have been paid. Atkinson also agreed that his home was subject to forfeiture because it was purchased with proceeds from the fraud. His house has been forfeited to the United States. Indiana Man Sentenced for Transportation of Stolen Vehicles On July 26, 2016, in Evansville, Indiana, Andrew R. Elpers, of Evansville, Indiana, was sentenced to 51 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles and of money laundering.

According to court documents, on May 23, 2016, during his guilty plea, Elpers admitted to the Court that he unlawfully transported in interstate commerce approximately 32 stolen motor vehicles many of which were large pieces of excavating equipment. Elpers also admitted to committing money laundering by trading in a stolen motor vehicle and using the proceeds to purchase a new vehicle, knowing that the proceeds were derived from unlawful activity. Elpers admitted stealing excavating equipment from three different states, Illinois, Missouri and Indiana. Elpers was found to have moved some of the stolen equipment to North Carolina where he used the equipment to make improvements to property he owned there. He admitted he had special skills in using excavating equipment that enabled him to override security measures and drive the equipment away from victim dealerships. In total, the stolen motor vehicles had a value of over 1.5 million dollars. California Woman Sentenced in Marijuana and Money Laundering Conspiracies On July 15, 2016, in Syracuse, New York, Simona Borissova, of Danville, California, was sentenced to 24 months in prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit 273,665.

Marijuana buyers and co-conspirators deposited money into various bank accounts, some held in the names of third parties including Borissova. Borissova withdrew cash to purchase more marijuana, pay expenses or otherwise spent it at her discretion. Borissova conspired with others to engage in money laundering involving 273,665, which was the total amount of money orders purchased with proceeds from the sale of marijuana in and around Utica, New York which was used for payment for the marijuana shipped from California to Utica, New York. Massachusetts Woman Sentenced for 3.6 Million Food Stamp Fraud On July 12, 2016, in Boston, Massachusetts, Vida Ofori Causey, of Worcester, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit 3,512,906 to the government.

According to court documents, Causey was the owner and operator of JampW Aseda Plaza, a convenience store. From April 2010 to October 2014, Causey conspired with others to commit SNAP fraud by purchasing SNAP benefits from recipients rather than exchanging them for food. Causey purchased the benefits at a discounted value of approximately fifty cents for every SNAP dollar. By so doing, Causey caused the USDA to electronically deposit into a bank account she controlled the full face value of the SNAP benefits fraudulently obtained. To provide customers with cash for the SNAP benefits, Causey used the cash she received from customers wishing to utilize MoneyGram services. In order to cover those transactions, she transferred money from the account where her SNAP funds were electronically deposited into the account she used for her MoneyGram business. Ohio Man Sentenced for Stealing 3.3 Million from School District On June 30, 2016, in Youngstown, Ohio, Dominick Palazzo, of Broadview Heights, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay 3,333,448 in restitution to the Cuyahoga Heights School District.

Palazzo, was the Information Technology director of the Cuyahoga Heights School District. Joseph Palazzo devised a scheme to submit false invoices to the school district for IT-related goods and services never received or already purchased by the district from another source. Joseph Palazzos actions caused the district to issue checks to shell vendor corporations established and owned by Dominick Palazzo, Boyles and Donadeo. The shell vendor corporation owners kept approximately half of the stolen money themselves and funneled the remainder of the money back to Joseph Palazzo for his personal use. Joseph Palazzo was previously sentenced to more than 11 years in prison. Boyles was sentenced to more than two years in prison and Donadeos case is pending.

Former Prosecutor Sentenced for Massive Wire Fraud and Money Laundering Scheme On May 23, 2016, in Anchorage, Alaska, Mark Avery was sentenced to 160 months in prison, five years of supervised release, ordered to pay a 100,000 fine, and pay restitution to the May Smith Trust of 45,925,737. Avery was convicted on Feb. 29, 2016, of three counts of wire fraud, six counts of money laundering, one count of bank fraud and one count of making false statements to a bank. Avery served as a trustee and lawyer to the May Smith Trust from early 2002, and received yearly compensation in the amount of 600,000 in trustee fees for his fiduciary role. Avery engaged in a scheme wherein he pledged assets of the May Smith Trust as collateral to secure a 52 million loan for himself. The jurys verdicts found that Avery defrauded May Wong Smith and the May Smith Trust by using the 52 million loan funds for his personal use and to invest in various businesses without any indicia of normal business practices. The money was obtained and spent with no written business plan, no controls over how the money was to be spent, no repayment terms, no promissory note and none of the common safeguards of commercial investments. Avery exhausted the 52 million he obtained from the trust in six months using the funds on various purchases for himself. Avery was also convicted of bank fraud and making false statements to Wells Fargo Bank in October 2006 in connection with a 500,000 line of credit in which he failed to list the 52 million dollar debt when applying for the loan. This is the largest wire fraud and money laundering conviction by amount ever prosecuted in Alaska. Louisiana Businessman Sentenced for Fraudulent U.S. Treasury Check Scheme On May 19, 2106, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Carlos L.

In just a fifteen-month time period spanning from March of 2012 through May of 2013, Linares cashed more than 250 U.S. Treasury checks with out-of-state addresses worth over 1.6 million. The checks had been obtained through fraud and misused other peoples identities. Linares also knowingly failed to follow the requirements placed on him as a registered money service business and failed to prevent his store from being used to facilitate criminal activity and launder money. Finally, Linares attempted to obstruct efforts by the IRS in efforts to determine whether he was following the law. Indiana Financial Advisor Sentenced in Fraud Scheme On May 19, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana, Jaime C. Lopez, currently of Wabash, was sentenced to 57 months in prison. In January, Lopez was convicted of 15 counts of wire fraud, one count of securities fraud and one count of money laundering. According to court documents, Lopez was a financial advisor who conducted business from his home in Carmel. He created various business names, JCL Interest Plus, JCL Capital Inc. and JCL Directs (JCL Entities) to direct funds from unsuspecting investors. From January 2010 until June 2012, Lopez convinced investors to transfer their Individual Retirement Accounts to self-directed accounts. Lopez would then transfer the money into JCL Entities under his control. Lopez solicited hundreds of thousands of dollars telling investors he had reinvested the money by loaning it to outside businesses, purchasing corporate bonds and notes or investing in real estate. Additional funds were used by Lopez to pay interest on promissory notes issued to the investors. Later the investors were issued new promissory notes for a longer term of investment and at a much lower rate of interest. Lopez never invested the money as promised, rather spending the money on the purchase of automobiles, home mortgage payments and home landscaping.
