    Hi there,

    My name is Tim van der Doef, and together with a friend of mine, Rick, we started with binary options at banc de binary (BdB). We both filled in the forms and got a POA to share the account. Now here's the point, due to our manager we lost the money. He gave us wrong advice and kept on pushing and pushing to get more in the account and to place more options. Now we both got past verification, but Rick is only 17 years old, now the account is suspended. We lost our money. And they're almost impossible to reach. Now they want to give Rick back his money and shut me out, with the problem that they let him trade on the account, also with a part of my money... We don't know what to do. Can someone please help us?

    With kind regards,
    Tim and Rick

    First, how much did the two of you deposit? How was the money deposited? When was the money deposited?

    If by credit card, gather up all the relevant documentation to show that BDB made and broke promises ("insured" trades that weren't, promises of "safe: profit from "sure" trades, etc.). Contact the credit card's issuing bank. Ask to speak to the fraud/disputes department. Explain exactly how BDB defrauded the two of you and ask about a chargeback.

    If the bank can't/won't help or if the deposits were made by bank wire, WinChargeback may be able to assist.

    Hi Tim: Please tell Rick not to send them a penny more. BdB also sent me an email they want to give me my money back. Before they send me my money they want $5,000.00 USD for fees & taxes. These people are also crooks. They just want your $5,000.00, they will never send you back your money. Please do not send them any more money, I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT SCENERIO MYSELF. BdB just wants to scam people over and over. In the event BdB sends you money without you having to pay them a penny, go ahead and accept the money they want to send to you. DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MORE MONEY! YOU WILL NEVER SEE IT AGAIN!!!

    See the following email I received: Please let me know if this is the email you received. This agreement is totally ILLEGAL and TOTALLY INVALID. IF YOU RECEIVE IT DO NOT FILL IT IN, JUST DELETE IT. IT IS FROM ANOTHER CRIMINAL COMPANY WHO WANTS TO SUCK MORE MONEY FROM THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY BDB.

    Tim and Rick, do not give BdB any more money. Report to your credit card bank but do not tell them you have been cheated because the bank will not do any chargeback for scams because you legally authorised the banks to charge your credit card. You should tell your bank that BdB did not give you the services that they promised.

    You should also report your case to :
    http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
    http://www.financialombudsman.gov.cy
    http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

    Send email and report to CySec:

    Tel. (+357) 22506600 Fax (+357) 22506700
    Email:complaints@cysec.gov.cyinfo@cysec.gov.cyWeb: www.cysec.gov.cy

    Also send an email and report to the Israel government Mr Galit Cohn (email address: public@isa.gov.il )

    You should contact Helena from Giambrone lawfirm which has initiated a class action against BdB for no fee. We only pay a certain percentage upon successful getting back our money from BdB. Read the letter below from Giambrone.

    Good evening

    I write to confirm receipt of your previous enquiry in relation to a potential claim against Banc De Binary.

    My name is Joanna Bailey and I am an Associate Lawyer within the Financial Services, Forex & Binary Options Litigation Department at Giambrone.

    I am the main point of contact within the team and I usually work between 9.30am and 5pm GMT. I sympathise with your situation and can only say that the position you find yourself in is not unique.

    I would like to reassure you that our lawyers in the Forex & Binary Options Litigation Department have an excellent proven track record of successfully recovering investors’ funds internationally. We have successfully represented hundred of individual investors in binary options, forex and securities fraud lawsuits and arbitrations worldwide, with combined claims of millions of dollars. We have recovered more than $16m in 2016 alone and our lawyers are frequently featured on national and international newspapers and TV as experts in their field for their skills in successfully pursuing forex and binary option brokers worldwide.


    Banc De Binary - Group Litigation

    In the last couple of months, perhaps due to increased media attention worldwide, I have been investigating a substantial volume of complaints of fraudulent binary options trading by investors against Banc de Binary. It appears that most of the background facts surrounding the operation of the company are similar amongst our clients so we are considering the possibility to issue a class action/group litigation action against Banc De Binary Ltd and all of its affiliated companies.

    As you may be aware, in March 2016, a US federal Court ordered Banc de Binary Ltd., ET Binary Options Ltd., BO Systems Ltd., BDB Services Ltd. and its owner Oren Shabat Laurent to pay more than $9 million in restitution and a civil monetary penalty to U.S. customers who traded the illegal, off-exchange options offered and for violating the CFTC’s Ban on Trading Binary Options Off-Exchange. The Order also imposed a permanent ban on offering or trading any further off-exchange binary options to U.S. customers. We are trying to ascertain whether such Order could help us in bringing similar proceedings in the UK for non-US based investors.

    Litigation Funding

    I have recently been involved in discussions with potential litigation funders in the City of London. Litigation funding is also known as legal financing and third-partyfunding, enables a party to litigate or arbitrate without having to pay for it. If I receive enough enquiries/confirmation of instructions to proceed with the proposed class action then you may become eligible for such litigation funding. The external funder agrees to pay your legal fees in return for a success fee that will be deducted from any compensation recovered.

    This would mean that you would not have to pay anything up front for the litigation against Banc De Binary.

    In order to be eligible for Litigation Funding however, we must first meet a minimum threshold in relation to the value of the claim as a whole. Additionally, the claim must obviously have sufficient prospects of success.

    I have been made aware of the existence of various open and closed groups on Facebook, LinkedIn and several forums where people in circumstances similar to yours have requested legal help or assistance to recover their losses. Should you have access to any of these groups, perhaps you would consider sharing this information and the below link with them in order that we can collaborate as many claims as possible in order to become eligible for the litigation funding:

    http://www.giambronelaw.com/site/news-articles-press/news/Giambrone-forex-binary-option-litigation

    I have approached a specialist Financial Services Barrister to prepare a preliminary advice on prospects of success, that I can go back to the funders with to strengthen our application.

    I look forward to hearing from you if the above is something which you would be looking to proceed with and in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me if you know of anyone else who is in the same position as yourself. As I need to manage multiple claimants in a structured way, and as I am attempting to keep Banc De Binary victims completely separate from any other brokers that our department assists with, I would be grateful if any new instructions and details of your claim could be forwarded to myself directly.

    In the meantime, I would like to thank you, once again, for your enquiry with Giambrone and look forward to working with you to assist you with the recovery of your losses.

    With best wishes,
    Joanna
