Be an informed investor - don't be fooled by fraudsters misrepresenting themselves

August 17, 2021 (Toronto, Ontario) – The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) warns Canadian investors that RxD Options fraudulently claims to be regulated by IIROC.

Through their website https://rxdoptions.com, the company claims to offer accounts for trading in cryptocurrency, forex, and binary options.

Binary options cannot be offered or sold to retail investors in Canada. No IIROC dealers are authorized to sell binary options to retail investors in Canada. Investors contacted by anyone offering binary options should immediately report the incident to their provincial or territorial securities commission.

We urge Canadian investors to exercise caution when dealing with non IIROC-regulated firms.

By visiting IIROC's website, investors can confirm if investment firms are registered with IIROC.

Investors can also check the background, qualifications, and any disciplinary history of investment advisors registered with IIROC 's free AdvisorReport.

The Canadian Securities Administrators provide investor alerts.
