If you're a dummy, you're sure as hell not going to make any money currency trading. The forex market is legitimate, but the appeals to regular people to get into it all have a get-rich-quick feel to them; the exact kind that actual scams use to pull in suckers.
Forex seems like it would be a zero-sum game, which is bad enough, but it's actually a negative-sum game because of all the commissions and fees involved. There's also the fact that big firms do this kind of thing for a living, and 99 times out of 100 you are not going to beat them. You may as well go to the casino and start betting on roulette.
