Most people want everything for free.
They want it all laid out on a silver platter for them.
The magic bullet, where they can press a button and make a fortune.
They want someone to spend their time teaching them a very valuable skill and they don’t want to pay for it. This skill probably cost a lot of time and money to acquire.
They also expect to find everything on demand online, For free. But that also cost someone time and money to deliver.
Affiliate marketing is one way where the person teaching you or proving information can get compensated for their time or effort. While also providing you with a service or information for free.
Not all educators are bad people or have negative intentions. Do your due diligence. You also have to accept and realize that you are ultimately responsible for your success. Trading is challenging and requires a lot of effort!
You could teach 10 people how to trade the same way and only one or maybe two of them might be successful. That’s just the way it is but some of those that failed will want to tell the world about how they got scammed.
I don’t see how they are scamming you from what you have said so far.
You are the one who will control the account, your money and press the buttons.
You can also test on a demo account.
