They say on their site that accounts are opened at Varengold Bank.

You should contact the bank directly.

A colleague made a trip to their offices yesterday to carry out a mini audit based on funds which had been transferred. To his surprise the company had fled the office and no contact could be made. After providing a lengthy report at the police station contact was made with the bank who confirmed an account but were not willing to discuss.

FX-Root inc

I also have been a victim of FX-Root inc. The owner of this company is a dutch guy with the name of Ezra Rafael van Groningen. It appears he has started a new website under the name www.fx-costa.com

@Dav12 Do you have any news from the Spanish police. I know that the Ezra (the owner of FX-Root) is registered at the Chamber of commerce in Barcelona. So they must be able to find him.

Guys, contact has been made with OTP bank regarding the client segregated account. Waitng on a response, a full investigation is taking place as we speak. Barcelona Fraud squad, lawyers ect. Will keep you up dated.
Can anyone confirm that Ezra is the actual Dutch actor?? Or has an identity been formed?

Not sure which bank details you were provided with for the fund transfer. There was meant to be a client segregated account set up with ourselves through OTP Bank Slovakia. Yes alias Mark Brown has dug his own hole at this stage, identity received.
There was never an office in London or NYC.The Barcelona office has been visited but as already mentioned, no one to be found "YET"
