Investor Alert for 1st Trade Options/First Trade Options

Halifax - The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is alerting investors that 1st Trade
Options/First Trade Options is not registered to sell securities in Nova Scotia.

1st Trade Options claims to be a full service options trading company located in
Panama City, Panama. 1st Trade Options and its representatives solicited at least one
Nova Scotia resident by telephone to invest. The investor lost money as a result. It
also advertises on its website:

"Cold-calling is common practice for fraudsters," says Stephanie Atkinson, senior
enforcement counsel with the Commission. "Don’t fall prey to these high-pressure
sales tactics. Hang up the phone and always take time to check registration. You are
your first line of defence to protect against financial fraud."

The Commission urges Nova Scotians to exercise extreme caution when dealing with
firms that are not registered in the province. It is illegal to solicit investments in Nova
Scotia without registering with the Commission and complying with Nova Scotia
securities laws. To see if a company or person is registered, you can check the
Canadian Securities Administrators' National Registration Search at

If you have been contacted by a representative from 1st Trade Options, please contact
the Commission. Nova Scotians can always contact the Commission to report any
scams or what is believed to be suspicious behavior from anyone offering investment

The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is the provincial government agency
responsible for regulating the investment industry in the province.
