UK financial regulator The FCA has added a few names to its warning list of individuals or entities which have been targeting UK investors.
First up is Marketrip at website marketrip.com, which appears to be an offshore MT4 broker sporting a UK telephone contact number.
And next is 1stClassFX at website 1stclassfx.com, a website purporting to provide education for traders, but providing very little of it on its site. Instead, it looks like 1stClassFX is just plugging its affiliate account signup deals with a few retail brokers such as XTB, Trade.com, Markets.com, and FxPro.
The FCA also said that 1stClassFX is associated with an Instagram account called investwithjulia_. That account lists its owner as Julia Wicks, a 28 Year Old Investment Consultant, Property Investor and Entrepreneur. @investwithjulia_ has 11,400 followers.
