The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) alerted forex brokerage FX Jupiter  is a clone firm of an entity authorized by the watchdog.
 The entity pretends to be associated with authorized companies Jupiter Asset Management Ltd., Jupiter Unit Trust Managers Ltd., Jupiter Fund Management plc and Jupiter Investment Management Group Ltd., which are registered in England and Wales. However, the clone is not related to any of the genuine entities.

For the traders who are particularly newcomers choosing a right broker is more difficult task, because lots of trading brokers in retail market place and most of them are found to be scams.  We have to avoid the broker which is not regulated and restrict any kinds of trading techniques with scalping and hedging.

Thank you for sharing this Eliza ! Here is the office news from FCA themselves - https://www.fca.org.uk/news/warnings/fx-jupiter-clone-firm . I also manage to catch the news on leaprate - http://www.leaprate.com/financial-services/rules-and-regulation/fca-warns-against-chinese-forex-clone-scam-website-fx-jupiter/ . It is good to update each other, regarding scam brokers (proven of course). Maybe have a special topic, regarding scam brokers, I dont know just thinking out loud here. What do you think Donna ? ( Or maybe there is such topic, that I have missed ? )

I wonder Is it possible to arrange legal pursuit against them? Or they can operate freely without fear a punishment can reach them once?

It depends if they can reach them, what this means is , if legal authorities can find them it is quite possible to prosecute them. But the main problem with fake brokers and companies is that, they have fake addresses fake faces, so it is very hard to get to them.

The FCA issued another warning about a clone of a legitimate company. The regulator has warned that the company Global Marketing Online Limited / ADS Securit(i)es is a clone of the properly regulated forex brokerage ADS Securities London Limited.
Be aware that the scammers may give out other false details or mix these with some correct details of the registered firm, FCA said in its notice.

May I know the reason of your list? Whatever, traders need to avoid all of non-regulated Forex brokers! In addition I seem, novice traders may use education friendly trading platform, which brokers provide daily market analysis! But again, regulation is the key point here! By the way, please add more info about your list!

I believe the reason for the list is to warn newbies of potential frauds they could encounter.
When I was a newbie, I was very naive and trusting, to be honest. Too naive and trusting for my own good, and I also didn't know how to search for information about the broker I was about to work with. I got scammed a few times, once it was particularly painful.

The FCA issued a new warning about yet another clone scammer - the forex broker Stratton FX is a clone of the fund management and advisory company Stratton Street. 
According to the watchdog, Stratton FX is not regulated and provides a non-existent street address in London as its headquarters, while claiming it is licensed by the global financial oversight bodies in the UK. Since the FCA is the only organization overseeing the activities of forex brokers and they havent licensed this company Stratton FX is straight up lying about it and pretending to be the actually licensed company Stratton Street.
