What does the CFTC recommend I do to limit my exposure to fraud?

The CFTC recommends that you be wary of any company that purports to offer extremely high profits with little risk, firms that offer to pool your money with other people’s money to trade in commodities, and, in general, firms that promise easy profits from trading metals, currencies, petroleum, or agricultural products; any unsolicited phone calls from trading companies; any firm asking you to send cash immediately; and any company asking for your bank information so that funds may be wired in or out of the accounts. You should never invest in futures contracts without first seeking expert outside advice, and investigating the firm you are considering using.
