Here is the company Info:

Leigh Mckenzie

RBOptions Inc.

161 Bay Street, 26th Floor Toronto

TD Canada Trust Tower

M5J 2S1 Canada


They will steal your money, credit card info, personal info, and will ask for scan of government id, credit card, utility bill, etc.

Stole $250.00 from me, tried to get me to spend more too with their tier accounts.


They use enticing words to urge people to sign up, see here for their ads:

Words/Phrases like: Best Binary Platform, Voted Best Broker, New to binary Options, Highest Paying Broker, Up to 90% Profit, etc.


I told them it was illegal and basically they stoped emailing me saying with a threat that their lawyer will contact me and they can not help me any further.

They even have a skype listed on their website: Broker. RBO, which doesn't exist.

Here is info on goverment websites stating such services is illegal:

The account sign up is not real or valid, because I should have never reached their website. However, they solicated me with their google ads using key words to lure me in. They even put up a tons of info on where you give them more money, they will give you a better service.


RBOptions even ask you to give $5,000 to $15,000 for a diamond account where you get free ipad.

RBOptions also say they give 80% bonus to your deposit. The trick is you can't withdraw funds until you trade/make a profit of (intial deposite + bonus) multiplied by 20. So basically, the chances of you getting your money back is slim. So for me ($250.00 + 25% bonus)x20=$6250, which is insane.


Do not trust RBOptions, refund is not a option for this greedy law breaking company.

Worst day of my life, lost my birthday money. I thought I was getting a good deal.

I have also been ripped of by RBOptions

AUTHOR: Dave - (USA)

I agree with the complainant.  I too got suckered into one of their plans where they "professionally manage" your account.  The first week showed extraordinary winning percentages.  After the first week, when I said that I had no more money to invest, all of a sudden virtually all trades were losers.  No way to get the money back because I fell for the line that certain trades were guaranteed.  Now they just give me indicators of bad trade after bad trade, knowing that my account will eventually be wiped-out with no recourse.

I discussed what their business model was with one of their managers.  What I was able to determine was that they are essentially operating a casino.  Your deposits are paying their salaries.  They aren't earning any commission from trades.  The trades are just coming out of the house bank account.  They use the prices from the markets to determine "wins" and "losses" instead of using cards, dice, or roulette wheels as a normal casino would.  No trades are placed on any exchanges, contrary to what their "brokers" say.  Trusting your broker to make decisions on market prices is like trusting the casino dealer to play your card hand.  I believe most of the binary brokers operate like this and some, in fact, actually have casino licenses.

Other binary options companies will simply fold up after a while and disappear with all deposits -- essentially just operating as Bernie Madoff did.

I believe the only way to really succeed with these companies is to make sure you don't get into any "bonus" plan and keep your account size small.  If you make money, pull it out immediately before you put on any other trades.  That way, the most you will lose is your (hopefully) small deposit money. If you have a large balance, they will make sure that they find a way to keep you from ever seeing your money again.  Just keep in mind that they are keeping the 20% (or so) of every win and keep the full amount of each loss.  Large deposits are gravy to them which is why they try so hard to hit you up for more deposit money all the time.

The financial regulator in Ontario (Canadian province), the CSO, which is one of the regulators that are partners of the BCSC ( British Colombia regulator), another Canadian regulator that has recently issued a warning against the Cedar Finance broker, in the same way that CySEC (European regulator) and the AMF (French regulator), has just launched a warning against the RBOptions binary options broker. In an official statement on its website, the Ontario regulator (Ontario Securities Commission) declared that the company to which RBOptions belongs ( is not authorized or registered with regulators and does not have any authorization enabling it to carry out its business activities on Canadian soil. The activities of the latter are not consistent with Canadian financial regulations and consequently in the eyes of the law it can not provide services to local individual traders, encouraging them to invest, buy or sell financial products.


I have just noticed this.  Had I seen this I would never invested so much with RBOptions.  The company consistently gives false trades with a view to clientele making a loss.  Initially they may give you one or two good signals, but then they turn foul.  Best not invest too much as you could get burned

Use A Regulated Broker

AUTHOR: Jim Caseman - ()

There are 2 types of Binary Option Brokers, those who are regulated and those who are not.

American traders of Binary Options have a couple of options when it comes to Binary Option Brokers, regulated by CySEC that accept America traders. The Binary Options Exchange keeps an updated page about regulated binary options at:

International traders should also check who is regulated and use someone regulated in Cyprus, England or one of the EU countries that regulate binary option broker.
