Abstract：Diversify! We recommend you to open trading accounts with at least two brokers.
Forex Birds says to be a well regulated forex broker with global reach. They offer access to the good old MetaTrader4 platform, a choice of four account types and a wide range of solutions to trade CFDs and Forex, commodities, indices and spot metals. It also provides clients with the leverage of up to 1:100. Nevertheless, there are some concerns about its regulation.
Is Forex Birds a scam？
It is not safe to trade with Forex Birds as it is an offshore unregulated broker. Forex Birds LTD claims to be a fully licensed and Regulated broker governed and supervised by the Saint Vincent Finance Service Authority (FSA).
However, the fact is that St. Vincent and the Grenadines is an offshore zone, which does register the financial investment firm, but provides very poor if none requirements to the company operation. That means, the broker is not regulated, not overseen and does not comply with strict international rules that provide protective measures to the traders. Therefore, it became an offshore zone for shady forex brokers such as CVC Markets, AAG Markets and more.
Forex Birds LTD also claims to be a registered company from UK company house registration number 1203823. However, Companies House is only the United Kingdom‘s registrar of companies, it is not the regulator that approves licenses for the brokers in the UK. And, of course, there is no information about this broker in the UK’s FCA register.
Moreover, the Spanish regulator CNMV (National Securities Market Commission) has issued a warning against Forex Birds:

How does the scam work？
The internet is filled with ads, it‘s the fuel of the industry, and a big chunk of said advertisements are misleading and some are downright deceitful. The ads concerned with unregulated forex brokers are often very promising, and most of the times utilize completely false claims of immediate profit. Those tempted enough will be redirected to a robo-scam website that further guarantees profits. The only thing that separates the user from the unrealistic promises is a fast registration process that requires a phone number and an email address. After inputting this info unsuspecting users will start getting phone calls from illicit broker representatives, whose one and only job is to initialize the scheme by pushing a trader to make that first deposit of around $250. After that’s done, the senior representatives will be calling. These expert scammers are extremely good talkers, and will start working on you to start putting even more money in. They say that the more money invested, the higher the profit will be. At this point most traders start seeing the big picture, and will want to withdrawal their money and get out fast.
However, the scammers have anticipated this development, and are ready to counter any withdrawal request. Typically they find excuses for delaying the request in the legal documents that hold specific clauses for these purposes. The reasons are many. One thing to remember is that all illicit brokerage firms will deny the withdrawal request for as long as they can, because of the imposed time limit traders have for filling a chargeback. Once the crucial due date is not met, any chargeback requests will be denied.
What to do if scammed？
Those of you who deposited using VISA and MasterCard wil be glad to know that both companies have extended their chargeback time span to 540 days, especially if the reason for it is an online scam.
Scammers will steal directly from a bank account, if the traders has provided crucial details, like banking password or security code. If it get down to this, be sure to either block the account or change the password.
Sometime victimized users will stumble upon the so called recovery agents that promises to magically reclaim all lost investments, for a fee that is. Needless to say, they will not get back any of the lost funds, and will basically scam you a second time.
