    Brokers have disappeared with client funds before. I hope that isn't the case with FigFx, but I can't rule out the possibility at this point.

    This is another reason to try to find brokers that are registered with regulators that truly regulate.

    Credit card deposit

    BTW, also regulated companies can bankrupt and run with your money, but the their is some amount of protected money by the regulation ( it change between regulations)

    Regarding Figfx, As we all understand this look like |run away with clients money|. If someone deposited via credit card/Pay Pal he can start proceed charge back based on internet fraud. in credit card companies you can make charge back till max 4 to 6 month (depends on the credit card company) from the deposit.

    probably the processor of the credit card kept some reserve and didn't pay all to Figfx. sooner the better.

    This is not much of a surprise. There were many red flags along the way and people ignored it.
