In addition, he himself operated several broker scams such as XTraderFX, SafeMarkets, OptionStarsGlobal, Golden Markets and CryptoMarkets until spring 2019.
In early 2019, an EU arrest warrant was issued against Gal Barak on charges of financial crime, money laundering, and investment fraud. He was arrested in Bulgaria during an international police operation in February 2019. After a few days, he was released into house arrest in his apartment in Sofia. Allegedly for health reasons. The Austrian authorities have requested his extradition to Austria. Barak’s Austrian and Bulgarian lawyers are resisting this extradition. After several postponements and adjournments of court hearings, the extradition has not yet been decided.
