What is SwiftOption?
SwiftOption, as its official website shows, is described as an innovative Binary Options broker. According to Wikipedia, in the finances field a binary option is a type of option with only two possible outcomes – either a fixed monetary amount or nothing at all.
However, an analyze made by binary.comparizone.net indicates that SwiftOption is a binary broker with a very poor trust rate. SwiftOption is then considered unsafe for trading. Any observant user would also notice the suspicious pop-up window that is stuck on the homepage of the official website. The window doesn’t provide an option to close it so that the user is tricked into clicking the ‘register now’ green button.
In conclusion, any emails that are sent by firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or other email address registered at swiftoption.com should not be trusted and should be deleted permanently. In case the user clicked on the provided images or zip files, or pressed the download button on www.swiftoption.com, he should scan his system as a precaution.
