Hi all,

I need some help. I recently invested with a broker named Mary Gray who advised me to deposit money into bullfxoptions.com, I deposited around 40k and then told her I wanted to withdraw by end of January. I proceeded to withdraw all funds, bullfx sent an email saying I need to pay brokerage and withdrawal fee of 7500 USD. I paid this, then the withdraw was confirmed. I then received another email saying I have to pay 10% commission to manager (Mary Gray) before withdraw goes through. Mary had told me I can pay the commission once I withdraw the funds, seems this was not the case. I am out of funds and unable to pay them. Have I been scammed??

I take absolutely no pleasure in saying that, in all probability, you have indeed been scammed or has signed up with a bad Broker and a unscrupulous "Manager/Agent" Mary Gray. FX Brokers don't charge brokerage fees and though there might be withdrawal fees charged, it most certainly not to the tune of US$7,500

I typed "bullfxoptions.com" and Google search & found a few bad reviews which goes to show that you MUST ALWAYS research the Broker and Service Provider thoroughly before you hand over your money.
At their site, they have listed a New York address, but without more research, it's difficult to even pinpoint exactly where Bullfxoptions is located. I have also not come across with whom they are regulated with.

At one site, there are multiple warnings on Bullfxoptions:
"A number of unregulated brokers like Bull-option have been reported to scam people."
"We do not recommend to trade with Bull-option since this broker has been suspected as a scam broker. Immediately withdraw your funds if you are currently trading with them."

Try inviting Bullfxoptions to respond your complaint here at the FPA.

I checked bullfxoption.....that had bad reviews. But bullfxoptions with the 's' had no negative reviews that I could find.

They have approved to withdraw my funds to my Coinbase account after I paid the 7500 USD and then they said I need to pay 5% of the profits as commisisons. Should I stop there or send the money? They grew my 45k investment to 160k on the platform.

Are there any recommendations for recovery companies? I contacted TheGlobalPayback but not sure if they are legitimate.

Personally I think it's a scam to get victims to send them more money after scamming the deposit money before vanishing forever.
Common scam is to show a fake trading platform with big profits. Then when the victim wants to make a withdrawal, the scammer then tells the victim to pay all sorts of fees & commissions and, after all the "fees & commissions" have been paid, the scammer disappear forever.

The decision is yours, but I would advise you to make a report to whoeve the broker claims to be regulated with.

Is this the website you are using? Grahamsville NY has a population of less then 2,000 people! The address listed below, 4138 Binganom Road, does not even appear to be a real location inside this town. I would not give this company another cent of your money until you better understand what is going on.

If the website above is accurate, the site is being hosted on a server in Panama and the website IP is 162.0.235.18. There are three other websites sharing this same IP.
