Updated over a week ago


Your safety and security are of utmost importance to us. In this age of interconnectedness, it's crucial to be cautious about where you disclose your email address. Scammers are known to exploit various platforms, including Discord, social media, and even giveaways, to gather information for fraudulent activities. While TFT maintains robust security measures, it's essential for all of us to be proactive in safeguarding our personal information.

Examples of Scams

  1. Spoof/Phishing Emails or Discord DMs

    Scam: Scammers can create lookalike Simulated Trader programs, complete with professional-looking emails, websites, banners and pop-ups.

    Advice: Verify the legitimacy of the program by checking for the origin of the sender and if unsure, please contact us immediately at [email protected] or via Live Support Chat.
    If you receive any emails that are not from our email domain (, please do not engage with the sender. We will never email you asking for money via crypto or any other form of payment. The only way to acquire an account with The Funded Trader is through a direct purchase from our website, or by being a Competition Prize Winner. If you are a winner of a Giveaway there will be clear details on how to claim your prize. You will never be asked to send us any form of payment outside of our website.

  2. Account Passing/Management Services

    Scam: One of the most prevalent scams is the promise of guaranteed passing or unrealistic simulated profits without risk.

    Advice: Be cautious of programs or individuals making extravagant promises, and approach such claims with skepticism. Examples include: Account Passing or Account Management services. Our Risk team regularly maintains oversight on all accounts before any Funded Account details are issued.

Helpful Tips

  1. Guard Your Email: Be mindful of sharing your email address publicly, especially on social media platforms, online forums, or in response to suspicious requests. Scammers often use email addresses as a starting point for their fraudulent schemes.

  2. Be Skeptical: Always exercise caution when interacting with unsolicited messages, emails, or texts, even if they appear to be from reputable sources. Avoid clicking on links or downloading files from unknown senders, and never share sensitive information unless you have verified the authenticity of the request.

  3. Verify with TFT Directly: If you ever receive an email or message that appears to be from TFT but seems unusual or raises any doubts, we encourage you to reach out to us directly through our official support channels to verify its legitimacy.

  4. Stay Informed: Keep yourself updated about common online scams and phishing techniques. Awareness is the first line of defense against potential threats.

  5. Trust Your Instincts - Your intuition is a valuable tool. If something feels off or too good to be true, trust your gut and conduct further investigation before proceeding.
