    Hi guys. Im trying to fugure out whether I am being scammed. Someone online is encouraging me to open a trading account with a firm called Business Choice Partners ltd. They have a fancy website but I just feel something is not right. How can I find out if it is a scam or not?

    I don't think you need to find out.

    Simply ignore it.

    If you wish to open a stockbroking account, use a reputable broker like DeGiro.

    Looking at their website, they have an address of UNIT G25 WATERFRONT STUDIOS, 1 DOCK ROAD, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, E16 1A

    Note their postcode is incomplete and should be E16 1AH

    Quick search shows their are 7,506 Companies registered at in E16 1AH, Dock Road, London. i.e. its a virtual office address.

    Also the company is run by Chinese. Business Choice Partners Group, Vow Group Limited, Gold8Services, Ambition Trader Limited - it’s all the same scammers - just search online with the work 'scam' and you will get the idea.

    OP - were you contacted online by a beautiful Asian girl per chance?
