Elbaz, who is the CEO of Yukom Communications Ltd., which operates the Bigoption.com and Binarybook.com websites, also allegedly lied about the real location and qualifications of so-called “brokers” helping victims, and of failing to properly disclose that binary options brands and brokers purportedly only make money when investors lose their cash, according to the aforementioned affidavit.

Up to Eighteen BigOption Clients Allegedly Complained of being Solicited to Make Deposits of Nearly $143,000; Google Allegedly Gave the FBI Confidential E-mails between SpotOption, a Binary Options Technology Provider, and its Client, Brokerage BinaryBookHands
The aforementioned affidavit allegedly reveals the size of the operations of only two allegedly involved and unregulated brands that had allegedly violated US law including eighteen clients of BigOption who purportedly complained of being solicited to deposit nearly $143,000, according to data collected by the FBI presently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.
What is more, between the second quarter of 2014 and the fourth quarter of 2016, BinaryBook allegedly received $98.9 worth of deposits between the second quarter of 2014 and the fourth quarter of 2016, according to FBI data.
Finally, it’s interesting to note that Google allegedly gave confidential emails to the FBI which were between binary options technology provider SpotOption and its client, brokerage BinaryBook, the FBI data reports.
