Gambling911.com has been following this story closely and was the first to reveal last week that one of the companies, BinaryOption, had been taken offline within 24 hours of the Daily Mail reporting on the alleged improprieties.

Israeli call centers were said to have been used to operate a binary options investment scam where staff were ordered to “rape clients out of their cash”.  According to the Daily Mail, thousands of Britons, including many pensioners, lost millions of pounds in the secret fraud that involved both InsideOption and another company, AA Option.

The Reuters Investigation goes even more in depth and a most fascinated read that can be found here.
