Hi I'd like to report a scam and ask for your help to hopefully reclaim the money I lost.

I was matched on Tinder with a young women who chatted to me for a few weeks then we went over to WhatsApp. After a few days she began telling me about her uncle and how he was an expert trader and had been making lots of money.

Eventually she persuaded me to sign up on a website called allbrightfinancialfx.com and sign up with the broker to begin trading. The minimum deposit had to be 1000 dollars which seemed a lot but as I was new to trading I didn't think too much of it. We began trading for a couple of weeks and the trades were going well until one day the trade went really bad and I lost all the money in my account and it went into the minus figures. I then had to deposit more money to get the account back to zero or they were claiming I'd lose credit score etc.

The following week she contacted me again and introduced me to her 'uncle' who told me he wants to help me recover the lost money. I was persuaded to deposit even bigger sums this time so that I can earn the money back quicker. Unfortunately the same thing happened again where the trade went south and I lost all the money I deposited apart from 300 dollars. I tried to withdraw this amount and get out of the scheme but Allbright Financial minimum withdrawal limit is 1000 dollars which is definitely not good.

During the second spell of trading, the women I was in contact with deposited some of her money into my trading account to 'help me out'. Of course, once the rigged trade loss came I lost her money too, and she has been pressuring me repay her ever since but I can't afford to as this whole scam wiped me out.

If you could offer any advice on who to contact or how I could go about trying to regain all the money I've lost I'd be really grateful as I'm really not sure what to do.

A true brokerage account will have an automatic stop loss to keep the account from going negative even when an investor cannot react in time to close a trade. There are some exceptions to this but for a brand new investor a good broker will naturally help you set this up. You don't owe them any money and dont pay another cent. Sorry to hear about your loss but this company has already been proven to be fake and is actively stealing from many investors.

Okay thank you, they are threatening to call the police and file a debt notice, is this anything I need to worry about?

Also, how good are my chances of getting my money back, I have filed a report with action fraud, anyone else I should report this to?

Yet another scam.

Please don't fall for this again. If someone contacts you offering a service, it's more than likely a scam.

Learn to trade yourself, and trade your own money.

I would not worry because I am uncertain how a company committing fraud is going to call the police on you when you refuse to to give in to their illegal demands. You should ask them to file the police report, ask for the case number and then welcome for the police to contact you so that you can prove they are committing fraud.

You should report this to your local Securities & Futures Commissions, the US CFTC, the police department in the country where they claim to be located, etc. Also you should start taking screen shots immediately of your trading account, all communication and any other supporting documentation you need for your records.

Okay thanks. As of today, the woman I am I'm contact with has said that she has told her friend in England to report me to the police so is it best to block them now or keep the chat open?

Surely they won't actually tell the police because I have all the chat logs and screenshots saved in a secure location?
