Haha, it's annoying not only because there are too many scams nowadays, but cause of everybody talking about this. "look here! what a tragedy! it's a scam, so work with this one"... "this one is better"... "someone didn't got his money, let's talk". Thousands of threads appear, it makes a great confusion!
I trade live for a pair of months and before choosing some company I read forums... Oh my god. All these pieces of advice are not helpful at all, I just became lost in the variety of brokers... I made a decision by myself (or I want to believe in it, cause every line read influences our thoughts unconsciously) and sometimes visit such threads just for fun
