FPA Scam Finding
AstonForex.com aka AstonMarkets.com
We the members of the Scam Investigations Committee of the Forex Peace Army have deliberated on all the evidence available to us and have reached a conclusion. It is our opinion that...
No one at the FPA had heard of Aston Markets or Aston Forex until the complaints started coming in.
There are now 4 FPA Traders Court Guilty Verdicts against the company.
Case 1. FPA member Peace09 reported that he was unable to withdraw his funds and could no longer contact anyone at Aston Forex / Markets about the situation.
Case 2. FPA member GlennFX1 reported successfully making one withdrawal from his Aston Markets account. A second withdrawal request was met with delays and excuses. The money never arrived.
Case 3. FPA member Kayg reported depositing under a “risk free” trading scheme. The account manager made some money on the initial trades, then took the account negative with one large loss. The guarantee to refund the initial deposit was met with unfulfilled promises. Requests for more deposits were made.
Case 4. FPA member Henabilal reported depositing under a “risk free: trading scheme. As with Kayg, the account had several good trades, but one bad trade took it into loss. The promise to refund the initial deposit was not met.
Email invitations were sent to Aston Forex/Aston Markets for all 4 cases. There were no replies. All 4 cases ended in guilty verdicts.
Under these circumstances, the FPA has no choice but to declare that Aston Forex, aka Aston Markets is a scam broker. This ruling applies also to any other websites under the control of this company or its owners. We offer AstonMarkets the opportunity to have this scam finding lifted by meeting these requirements...
1. Process all overdue withdrawals. Add a 0.5% compound interest payment for each full month compensation for any withdrawal that been delayed more than 2 months since the initial request was made by the client.
2. Make it a firm policy to never ask for new deposits from a client who has a pending withdrawal request.
3. Process all withdrawals within one week. Require all AML documentation before accepting the initial deposit, so that this cannot be used as a reason to not process a withdrawal.
4. Cease trading on behalf of clients.
5. Cease making guarantees that the company cannot or will not fulfill.
