Our team has received many reports of scammers using our content and pretending to be us. Unfortunately, these accounts are difficult to shut down as there are many that we do not know of. While we will continue to do our best to get these accounts shut down as we receive reports, we are unable to fully stop them. We want to educate our followers on how to spot these fake accounts in attempt to . Below our a list of things to look out for before making a purchase to any platform.
We do not direct message our customers!
We DO NOT direct message our customers on social media! While we will respond to messages we receive on our accounts, we DO NOT message followers first. If you receive a message from an account that you have not previously messaged, this may be a sign of a scammer.

We will not ask you to send us money
A1 Trading does sell an online VIP community, however, we DO NOT ask you to send us money directly via direct message on social media platforms. Any payments for our VIP community are made on our website (a1trading.com). If the payment options on our website do not work for you, submit a question to our team on our website and we can give you other payment options.
Scammers also tend to be more pushy for a sale. A scammer may ask you multiple times to send them money or say they cannot help you until you send them money. We are not this desperate and quite honestly, we do not have the time to beg for a sale. If something feels off, go with your gut.
It's too good to be true
This goes for pretty much everything in life, If it's too good to be true, IT IS. Unfortunately, nothing in life is going to make you large amounts of money instantly. If it did, everyone else would already be doing it! Any successful person will tell you it took hard work and dedication to get where they are today. They won't tell you someone direct messaged them on social media and sold them a membership that made them thousands instantly. Use your gut! If someone is promising large amounts of money if you pay them, there is something wrong.
There are multiple telegram channels using our images that are particularly hard to get removed . If you see any messages that look similar to the one below this is a huge red flag. We DO NOT offer investment plans or account management. We will NEVER ask you to send us money with a guarantee that we will make huge returns. If anyone guarantees huge profits if you give them money avoid them. Although it sounds nice, no one can guarantee anything in the markets no matter how knowledgable they are.
Check their profile
There are a few things that you can look out for in a profile that is a red flag and is most likely a fake account.
First, check the date of their posts. Scammers, unfortunately, are creating thousands of these accounts. If the posts were all created on the same day, this is a red flag! Scammers often post lots of posts to fill up their profile to make them seem more legitimate.
Second, read the captions. Because these scammers are busy direct messaging people and creating lots of accounts, they usually do not put much time into their profile. Usually, their posts will have no captions, very short captions or captions with some emojis. Real accounts are more genuine and captions are more personal and thought out.
Third, look at their stories. Real accounts usually post live videos on their stories. Scammers post screenshots of other stories or videos that do not show them or their voice. When deciding if an account is a real, look in their stories for videos of them or their voice.
Below are screenshots of a fake account with examples of the red flags:
Before you send anyone money, ask yourself this...
Unfortunately, there are scammers everywhere. They are scamming people in every business, not just ours. Here is a checklist of things to ask yourself before sending anyone money.
1. Is it too good to be true? Are they promising me way more than I am paying?
2. Are they being too pushy for a sale?
3. Is their profile legitimate? Do they share real videos and genuine posts?
4. Are they sharing a legitimate website to make a payment or am I sending money to their personal money transfer account?
5. Does something seem off?
If you feel that something seems off and want to ensure your money is going to a legitimate person, reach out to our support team on our website.Contact our Support Team Here
