    Original FPA Traders Court Submission by Sylvie O.:

    I am submitting the case against: https://www.intelfx.com/

    My Case is: IntelFx WITHDRAWAL PROBLEM

    Company information 

    Name : IntelFx

    Head Office :

    FNZ Capital Limited (formally known as FNZ Bancorp Limited)
    Level 20, ASB Bank Centre,
    135 Albert Street,
    Auckland, NEW ZEALAND
    Tel : +64.9359.7417
    Fax : +64.9358.7340
    Email : support@intelfx.com
    Marvan (finance dept): marwan@intelfx.com

    My name is Sylvie Ouellet, I'm a Canadian citizen. In January 2011, I opened a Micro Account with IntelFx. At the beginning of April 2011, I requested a withdrawal from my micro account (#65796). They processed it on April 6th and the payment was made to my bank account the same day. Then I opened a Cent account (#109708 ) which I closed few days later because I was loosing money due to lack of experience and huge drawdown caused by Eas I was using. At the beginning of May 2011, I requested for a withdrawal. They processed it few days after (May 3rd) but, this time, I didn't received the payment. The support team told me it would take 3-7 days. On May 12th the payment was still not made to my bank account. I contacted them a second time, asking them why the money was not made to my bank account. Marwan (finance dept.) sent me a document with the details of the transaction. I checked with my bank : they never received the payment and told me that the people who made the payment should verify with their bank. I contacted Marvan again and told him to check with is bank. He told me he will verify with is bank and said maybe they made a mistake. He never contacted me after. After that, I sent few e-mails to Marvan but he never replied. On May 31st, I made a complaint to Financial Markets Authority of New Zealand but they never replied. On June 4th, I made a complaint to Financial Service Providers Register of New Zealand, they told me they will follow up wiyh any service provider that is not registered. On June 13th, I made a complaint to Serious Fraud Office of New Zealand they never replied.I'm still waiting for the payment....

    I hope FPA will help me to get my money back.

    A long delay in withdrawals and plenty of documentation. I think this should go straight to inviting the company in to chat.

    Hi Vincam,

    Thank you for your support. In the scam alert folder, Laurie and mousekingkong say they can't get their money from IntelFx. I hope we will all get our money.

    I emailed Marwan and a generic support address from their website a couple hours after Pharaoh first posted in this thread. Other than an auto-reply, I've seen nothing.

    I'm now moving this over to the Open Cases folder. Maybe that will get IntelFx's attention.

    Also worrying is that you received no reply from the Financial Markets Authority and the Serious Fraud Office in New Zealand. Is this typical behaviour??? I would have thought that New Zealand would be one of the more 'trustworthy' countries.

    I don't think they are New Zealander


    Plenty malaysian office (and malaysian bank account) and some Indonesian agents. I don't think they are New Zealander and "Marwan" is typical name in Malaysia/Indonesia, certainly not Kiwi name.


    If they have plenty office in Malaysia/Indonesia why would they headquartered in NZ ?. There's plenty broker in Malaysia/Indonesia and it is much more easy to open a brokerage there than in NZ.
