I can't find a review of this site but have been scammed out of £26k withdrawals not accepted although requested.I opened account on 4/05/2020 and quickly rose to 110,000 euros in 2 months.when they changed their name profits stopped and so did calls from account manager.as of todays date 18/08/2020 the account is now in a p&l loss of 60,000 euros.There are a few reviews on trustpilot (what i call untrustedpilot) but thought there would be more.I would like to escalate this but there is no review.advice would be welcome.

Hi Paul. Just read your post. What was the name of the Account Manager ? I had dealings with a guy called Mike Ross and then woman called Michelle Varella purporting to be their Chief Trading Officer. I have just posted a new thread on my experience. I think you should be able to find it. Any joy with being reimbursed ? I am pursuing through the bank......

HI
(sorry would use your name but forex peace army wont let me see you whole question)!
Account manger was called James Spiro.I became suspicious when the FCA gave out a warning on 15th June a month after i invested.Also when they changed their name to blexmond the calls stopped from account manager i still contacted him and he insisted that he had been phoning me every week.I have tried to use recovery companies but then i got scammed again twice! I am in the process of claiming a charge back for one of them.There is a reputable recovery company in London but they couldn't help me.The main reason they couldn't help me was because i had paid by bank wire transfer.If you paid by debit or credit card you might have a better chance of getting some money back.( this is how a got back my 500 euro deposit).
I don't know what country you are in but British banks have a lot of responsibility to look after their customers.As my bank did not go through the correct procedures they refunded me half my money.I did try to appeal but they said they wouldn't move forward.I don't know what those producers are but when i now log into my account or transfer money i get warning messages.They now also scan the account you are sending money too and if its not recognized then they send another warning.I did read on google about banks and their codes of practice which highlighted this.Although British banks are regulated by the FCA there are a lot of loopholes.My bank did contact the receiving bank of my funds which was also a FCA registered bank.The receiving bank (which i have seen since does deal with crypto exchanges = Binance Guernsey) did not reply to my bank at all. Astonishingly my bank has no recourse even though both banks are FCA registered.If there's a mention of CLEARBANK anywhere in future dealings =avoid. I would like to point out that the recovery companies i used where from trustpilot reviews. Trustpilot really is a mess don't believe anything on there as i think 50% are fake/scam reviews.
As or me my forex, crypto, stock days are well over.(although i do have a good tip for a nice crypto site lol)

Hi Paul. Thanks a lot for all the info. I've reported everything to my bank and credit card company but unfortunately most of the transactions are wire transfer. I'm awaiting my fate but am carrying around a permanent sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I also reported it to Action Fraud. Did you get a sense of where this James Spiro (if that's his real name) was based ? I am in the UK and had a managed account with them which I can still log into. The software is provided by a company called Airsoftltd and am wondering if they are part of the act. Without this, their scam would not be possible. Due to the very real look to this ie open / closed positions and you can see the live buy / sell prices, I didn't even think for one minute it was a scam. I could see my profit rising very nicely and it's basically this that drew me in.....that together with the Michelle character. Really, she should get a grammy for acting ability. Just going back to the Airsoftltd site, they also have an active LinkedIn and Facebook page but are offering a mobile app which I cannot find either on the app or Google Store so I am suspicious of them. They are based in Israel but employees are based all over the place. Latterly Michelle was pestering me for recommendations - thank god I didn't get any of my friends or family involved.......unlike one guy who she name dropped to me (connected to formula 1) and I saw a post he put up on Facebook in May time recommending them. I will let you know if I get anywhere with the banks and thanks again for engaging.
