IBR Broker reserves the right to cancel any trades or profits associated with Customer’s account(s) or to block the withdrawal of Customer’s first deposit if IBR Broker suspects or has reason to believe that customer is involved in such activity.

The concept of arbitrage and “scalping”, or taking advantage of these Internet delays, cannot exist in an OTC market where the client is buying or selling directly from the market maker.

13.Suspicious Funding of Trading Accounts

Occasionally, IBR Broker may see suspicious activity with regards to account funding. In such cases, the Compliance Officer (CO) will endeavor to make contact by email and telephone with the registered owner of the account.

The CO will continue to make such contact for no more than 48 hours. In the event that a response from the account holder has not been received within the 48 hour period, IBR Broker reserves the right to close all open positions and place the account inactive. If no contact is then received for a further 48hours the funds remaining in the account but not greater than the initial deposit will be returned to the original source of funding. This process applies to all methods of payment.

In the event that a credit card transaction is believed to be fraudulent, the CO will from time to time request scanned copies of the front and back of the credit card in question and may also ask for further proof of address. If such requests are not fulfilled, the CO has the right to inactivate the account and return the funds to the original card used to fund the account.
