WHO IS WHITELISTING FOR:

  • All new forum accounts (on or after November 04, 2023) must be whitelisted prior to being approved by Forex Zone Administration.
  • Existing forum accounts (registered before November 04, 2023) will need to be whitelisted in order to redeem forum points.
  • You were never whitelisted before and your account was flagged as fraudulent.


WHY NECESSARY:

  • The Forex Zone forum runs several different contests/bonuses that pays REAL MONEY out to it's members. These are very expensive to operate. To keep these contests/bonuses running for everyone, it is necessary to have additional checks sometimes to prevent abuse.
  • Unfortunately, cheating has been a serious problem on this forum since the beginning. For example, some members create multiple accounts in order to improve their odds of winning. This not only is against forum rules, but is also against contest/bonus rules too. When members cheat like this, it takes away winnings from honest members and hurts the forum too.
  • Bots and other automated software are a serious problem. Not only for this forum, but for other websites too. Up to half of all internet traffic these days is bot traffic. The whitelisting process filters out bad registrations made by bots.
  • This forum is for serious people who have a genuine interest in Forex, Crypto, trading, and related topics. Those who choose to get whitelisted show that they are serious.
  • You can USE THE SAME ACCOUNT IN THE FUTURE which you use for whitelisting for future contests/bonuses offered by Forex Zone!



HOW ACCOUNTS ARE FLAGGED:

The forum software automatically detects when multiple forum accounts are linked together. In other words, when the same person opens multiple forum accounts. Here are some reasons why a forum account may be detected in this way:

  • Using VPN or Proxy to connect to the forum
  • Sharing the same device to connect to the forum (eg. internet cafe, public library computer, etc...)
  • Using other software to manage multiple forum accounts at the same time.
  • Letting someone else manage your account or post for you.



HOW TO AVOID:

To avoid your forum account from being flagged as fraudulent:

  • Use your own personal internet service and device to connect to the forum!
  • Do not let someone have your password.
  • Do not use software to create your forum account or manage your forum account.
  • Do not let someone else post for you or manage your forum account.



WHITELISTING PROCEDURE:

  • You will need to prove your forum account is real with a one-time verification check. This is done by a 3rd party such a broker.
  • The available brokers for 3rd party verification are Kinesis, LMFX, FxOpenFxGlory, and XM. Accounts should be opened using the links provided. You will need to pass their full KYC procedure, which includes phone number verification. The email address used with the broker must match the email address used at the forum. The phone number used with the broker must be a real phone number (no temporary numbers or voip numbers) and be visible. Your phone number will NEVER be used for anything here other than whitelisting. All other personal information can be hidden, if preferred.
  • After you pass full KYC with a broker, you will need to send screenshot(s) back to Forex Zone Administration proving this. The screenshot(s) need to show your account # with the broker, email address, and phone number. All other personal information can be edited out.
  • Whitelisting requests will be manually reviewed by Forex Zone admin. In most cases, you should hear back within 24 hours. However, due to workload it may take longer.


WHITELISTING OPTIONS:



ADDITIONAL TERMS:

  • Getting whitelisted is optional and done according to your own free will.
  • Getting whitelisted is a one-time process.
  • Getting whitelisted does not give you a license to break forum rules. Whitelisted forum accounts can still be limited or banned for breaking forum rules.
  • Your KYC information will never be shared, sold, or given away! It will only be used for whitelisting purposes.
  • Any contest/bonus winnings will be considered as unclaimed if they are unable to be sent out due to a forum account not being whitelisted.
  • All questions or concerns regarding this whitelisting process should be directed to the Forex Zone forum and not to any 3rd party website or company. Do not waste the time of the broker asking them whitelisting questions or any other Forex Zone related questions!
  • Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any damages or losses you incur by participating in this whitelist procedure.
  • The terms and conditions of the Forex Zone whitelisting may change at any time. You are responsible for checking back here for updated terms or conditions, if any. It's best to have email notifications and alerts enabled so you stay informed.
  • If you do not agree with all the terms then do not participate. You can still browse the forum and download files from the forum without being whitelisted.

Members should pay more attention to this part:

Use your own personal internet service and device to connect to the forum!
Don't let someone have your password. Protect your account with 2 FA for more security.
Don't use the software to create your forum account or manage your forum account.
Don't let someone else post for you or manage your forum account.

The white list forum step is the wisest. I totally agree with this system.

my guess at the eurusd contest was being crushed by another member who might be the same person.
I guessed 1.10223 and they made guesses at 1.10224 and 1.10222.
eliminating my chances of victory in the contest. 😭

Everything must have rules in order to run well. 
This forum is very good and I already feel the prize here. 
So it should be disciplined so that all feel fair.

I hope that this white list can eliminate cheating completely, especially in the EURUSD contest because I'm sure they guessed in sequence.

I fully support this program. 
for contests and promotional programs must be given special security, so there is no cheating. 

If the account has been whitelisted, then caught cheating, I hope the admin is firm and is BANNED forever.

The terms of whitelisting have been slightly changed and are effective immediately. Please read the 1st post for more condensed and clear terms.

They are a new partnered broker. Maybe they will be used later.

So only fxzone and fxopen can be used for the whitelisting process? paxforex can't be used? Talking about the problem of paxforex, I am curious about the domain name used is .org not .com, is paxforex a safe and credible broker?

The 1st post will always contain the newest terms. So whatever is posted there will answer your question.




Talking about the problem of paxforex, I am curious about the domain name used is .org not .com, is paxforex a safe and credible broker?
The change to .org from .com is because of the US government seizing the domain because they offered services to US entities. This itself is not reason of concern to not trust them though, in my opinion. That being said, PaxForex has not been tested by Forex Zone.

Why is the paxforex broker, or specter not included in the options for whitelisting, so that there are more options for verification.

LMFX has been added as an additional whitelisting method. 

Proof of passing LMFX KYC can be done by taking a screenshot from your 'Profile' page which will have your phone and email there. Also, there is a button on this same page for uploading documents. When clicked, it will lead to another page related to documents. If you have passed their KYC, it will say it there. Full KYC needs passed. So both identity documents and residential documents need to be submitted to LMFX and accepted. Forex Zone does not need these documents! Simply take a screenshot of this documents page showing you have passed their KYC.
