This broker setup their website in April 2020 and the website has an IP of 104.26.4.194. There are three other websites that share this same IP address however it's uncertain what the relationship is to this fake broker. Please note the HK SFC has flagged this broker as unregistered and unregulated.

How you went with huge amounts without proper
How you went with huge amounts without proper research?
Yeah. I made a big mistake, I met another trader online who is also using this broker and introduced me into it. we have been chatting forex investment and he seems knowledgeable , I trusted him and invested more . Now thinking about this he might be hired by this fake broker to deceive people because he is not responding as well. I should not borrow money to invest more it is a huge mistake .

Thanks for sharing. Sorry for the capital loss, unfortunately there are so many scammers especially coming out from Asia. It looks like a fairly easy job for them to do to dupe people who live in the west. They know everyone is in this trading hype now. Money lost can be made but be careful next time. Hopefully this is a valuable life lesson. Take care.

I really don't know what else you can do that you have not already done to try to recover your money.
This type of online scam is getting more rampant throughout the world and is very difficult to eradicate entirely as there will always be trusting people out there who, like yourself, is unaware of the scam and modus operandi.

I feel for your lost, and wish there is more that we can do to help recover your money.
One thing you can do is to broadcast to other people about the scam so that they will not get scammed too.

Good luck & all the best!
