Late answer. But no, Uncle Ted and his group Forex Family should be 100% avoided. He has claims of taking 2500 to 100.000 in Forex. But never seen any evidence. Matter of fact, type his name on Youtube Ted Safranko. You will find a testimonial video of him as a binary trader who made 6 figures. In the video he is showing support to a scammer named Nenad Korof who is in jail now for scams and illegal prostitution activities.
Uncle Ted has a background in psychology NLP. He knows how marketing based on psychology works. He knows how to brainwash people. Because of that he has huge following on Instagram.
Over the years he has also created and promoted dozens of fake traders using his name. For example Alex Hill FX from Birmingham is a Forex Family mentor. Alex has been exposed multiple times for being a fraud on Instagram.
Or another Indian Forex Family mentor Raghav Tewathia who took money from 100’s of students and ran away. Ted was the one who promoted Raghav. There are more names like Elyas, Sami, Waqar and Rakeel. They all have been exposed for being frauds. There is a lot of dirt on Ted’s name and his group forex family which is full of fugazi’s.
There is nothing real about them. Things such as ‘free knowledge’ It’s all marketing based strategies by Ted who knows how to brainwash people. That’s why despite getting exposed, Uncle Ted is able to run his business.
Since last year Unle Ted has a brokerage named Traders Domain which is unregulated and offshore. Too risky to trade there. But It was always Ted’s plan to start more businesses and making his huge following on insta pour money into his businesses.
And by the way Ted almost blew his own account there because his results were available on the brokerage’s website on the leaderboard. Ted’s instagram profile reads ask for a track record if you want to take mentorship. Yet Ted himself has taken off his account from the leaderboard of his brokerage’s site and shows random trading results on Instagram and calls it track record.
Ask him for a myfxbook track record then watch the excuses fly. He will only show random trades or account balance of his own broker Traders Domain. Why? Because he owns that unregulated and offshore broker. He can manipulate results. So, don’t fall for his brainwashing talks.
And by the way, Uncle Ted also had a meeting with Astro Forex boys Shaun Lee and Aman Natt in Canada. Right after that Shaun Lee took 4K to half million on Ted’s broker Traders Domain. The only track record of Shaun Lee available so far. Astro Forex and Ted both ended up promoting each other on Instagram. Astro Forex got more courses to sell and Ted got more traders on his broker. Basically Ted gave Shaun Lee a fake live account.
Real traders are not on Inatagram. Just think about it. If you’re really that rich from trading, why would you be wasting time marketing your courses? It’s all marketing. These guys are all fake. Stay away from them.
