Q1. Not that I know of. Whoever's considering this, do be wary of the potential for wire fraud.

Q2. My group is registered as a CTA. Below is the addressed reply envelope for my ballot for this year's election for the NFA Board of Directors as proof.

I don't know much about scalping but according to Investopedia:

Traders who implement this strategy place anywhere from 10 to a couple hundred trades in a single day...

The holding times can vary from seconds to minutes, and in some cases up to several hours...

We would qualify as a "scalper" by this definition. For what it's worth, there's probably another 30-200 registered CTAs that would qualify depending on your definition, but there's also another 2100++ registered CTAs that don't qualify.
