    HI All.

    Further to all the other COF scam posts I thought I'd let you know a little more about Samir Beool( CEO) and COF and just what a scam this guy is running. I was offered a job with COF in late November 2013 and it became apparent almost from day one that there wasn't something quite right about this operation. You see they claim to have been formed in New Zealand and to have operated from there, well it quickly became clear that other than a company registration these guys have no connection to the island at all, in fact the only island they've traded from is CYPRUS and yet they continue to claim they have offices in NZ( And that HO is in London) even going to the extent of having pictures mocked up of their NZ HQ to send to suspicious clients(Well done Arjun, Great job there!) Now the alarm bells started ringing louder at this point so I had a chat with Samir Beool who assured me they were a bona fide Forex company and had started the ball rolling for their CYSEC(Cyprus securities and Exchange commission) registration. This was quickly contradicted by an announcement from Samir that the company(Should anybody ask) was in fact Sebsar Ltd. A company who specialise in offering support services to forex companies and should we be visited by CYSEC this was the story we were instructed to stick to. This obviously worried me greatly and I resolved to dig deeper after the Christmas break( It now being late December). Well on New Years day I received a late present in the form of a text telling me that there was no longer a job for me or anyone else for that matter as COF would no longer trade until they had been granted CYSEC registration and that I would receive a cheque for my services in the post. Now I agreed a salary of €1500 per month so was dismayed to later receive a cheque for only €600(Which bounced!) leaving me and my family in dire financial straights as it cost me over €300 to get to work for a month and it was money I'd had to borrow as I'd not worked for a few months. I then visited their offices to find them empty and was given a grilling by a very irate landlord as to the whereabouts of Samir Beool as he had skipped town owing the remainder of his lease. I now have it on very good authority that COF are continuing to trade from a private residence in Cyprus and that they have brought their staff from Jordan(Where they in fact originally operated from) to continue scamming ordinary hard working people like you. So please beware of any dealings with COF and if you receive a call from Samir Beool, Robert Moore, Enrico Falchi, Maksim or anyone else from COF for the sake of your hard earned money DON'T TRADE WITH THEM!

    Make sure to leave them a 1 star review.

    Also, does Cyprus have some sort of Labor Bureau? If so, file a complaint over the missing wages there.

    Drop over to Cysec and let them know all about this. Don't forget to tell the NZ regulators too.

    Hi Pharoah,
    Do you have any idea on how to file a lawsuit against COF. They were never regulated in NZ but was only registered there which they have since de-register from and the FSCL have no more authorities over them.

    If you file a complaint with eConsumer.gov, you could try sending a copy to their registrar. I don't know if that will work or not, but all it costs you is an email.

    Personally, I think brokers and account managers should be prohibited from using private registrations. Those are companies you are trusting with your money. You need to know who's really behind them.

    Is it possible for you to acquire Samir's personal details from his landlord? I am sure he has it. I want to get as much info on Samir as possible so that I can take action against him. He will not get away with it.

    Hi Fiogal.

    I did ask the landlord if he had a bona fide address for Samir but unfortunately he didn't, if I knew where the guy was I too would take action to recover my losses.:(

    I do have his address in Cyprus though. Do you have any colleagues or friends over in Cyprus? Maybe you can get them to lodge a police report against Samir in Cyprus since that is where he is supposedly based at right now.
