    Discuss is for general discussions of a financial company or issues related to companies.

    Info is for things like "Has anyone heard of Company X?" or "Is Company X legit or not?"

    Compare is for things like "Which of these 2 (or more) companies is best?"

    Searching is for things like "Help me pick a broker" or "What's the best VPS out there for trading?"

    Problem is for reporting an issue with a company. Please don't just scream "CompanyX is a scam!" It is much more useful to say "I can't withdraw my money from Company X" or "Company Y is not honoring their refund guarantee" in the subject line.
    Keep Problem discussions civil and lay out the facts of your case. Your goal should be to get your problem resolved or reported to the regulators, not to see how many insults you can put into the thread.

Problem 3 Months to Ironfx verify my account...can't trade...can't withdraw

I am having an issue with a company
Hello all,

I've opened one live account with Ironfx and I made the " mistake " of depositing before getting my account verified.
I've sent the documents asked for almost 3 months ago and everytime I talked with support different reasons was given to justify why they don't verify the account.
As I'm living in Germany my residence proof is in German so some times support says my documents are under review or waiting for translation or the residence isn't a full page document or that I just need to wait ( How much more??? ).
I also asked if I can withdraw my deposits, the answer was that I can't without having the account verified first.
Now, if Ironfx decides to not verify my account how can I get my money back?

Tell your bank that you want to do a charge back because they don't have an appropriate licence to provide a Forex financial service to you.
It was ridiculous that they kept you waiting that long! I get it if there were issues with things being in German, but 3 months is insane. Good to see that they did take care of it though!
I have similar license like you, I think they intend to keep you wait for so long. I have tried ironfx.co.uk which is regulated by FCA, the verification is still under reviewed while its been almost a month already. I also tried ironfx.com which is not regulated, the verification finished review on the next day. So I believe they dont really want new user in FCA/CYSEC regulated, they want you to trade in the non-regulated Ironfx.
