Hmm, to be confirmed by @Big Mike but I don't think so.
I'll put CFD in the same category as ETF, which are not as "scam-compatible" as penny stocks or binary options for example.

I respect the fact that you are trying to save many traders from making bad choices and yes, penny stocks and Binary options are instruments where many customers are taken advantage of and cheated out of hard earned money.
However, we can not go around in determining what is legit just based on the underlying product. The broker/market maker/dealing-desk makes a big difference in determining whether the product is priced right and whether the traders have a truly fair chance for positive expectancy.

On this note....

An ETF is an exchange-traded product while CFDs are made by a dealing-desk/Market-Maker and could vary in pricing across different broker on the exact same instrument. CFDs are based only on the cash value of the product.
