Vote of guilt on fxgrant.com

I vote guilty, but give you VERY little hope.
Dear Colleagues,
My take on this is to ascertain the following:
1) How much was initial deposit on the account?
2) Have you actually traded with them in their platform?

These questions are to reconfirm if they are existing and doing business. If they are real, they are guilty and should be made to pay up with accrued interest. We traders, going forward must ensure that Brokers are duly registered with the regulatory authorities as it were before doing business with them - NFA, FSA etc.

Looked up the website, nothing about registration that I could see. Withdrawal within 24 hours they claim. This site should not be running

Yes, this case looks pretty clear.

Even if a withdrawal gets 'lost' (especially such a small one), the broker should initiate a new wire transfer, using his own money, and then follow up the 'misplaced' first attempt.
It's not a trader's fault if his broker doesn't know how to fill a transfer form correctly (if it really is an accident).
If it's on purpose, it's even worse, of course.

In any case: guilty as charged.


Cheers,
P.

I checked the FSA Register and there is no FXGrant authorised.
However, there is a registered company at the very same address as FXGrant -
221 Bow Street, London E2. I guess that this address is just a mail-drop.

I was also scammed by forexbrokerinc, my vote is guilty. Only thing to do is get credit card company involved with the dispute.

It is a disgrace to the FX community that there are so many unscrupulous brokers in the market. Maybe FPA can start a page where all REGISTERED brokers can advertise, with their registration certificate and whole pedigree. Of course it will not stop the brokers being cheats, but it will be a good start.

ANY Broker that refuses to repay money that a trader deposited into a trading account - whether the trader has traded or not - is a lying thief, cheat and scammer, which should be castrated summarily. These clowns are guilty. And they still have a LONG life before them to con people out of their hard earned cash.... Makes one want to puke.

If they are located in UK then are they regulated by FSA.

"© 2005-2011, FX Grant. All rights reserved" but the website was registered only in 2008-08-04

How come this broker in business even before the existence of his website. If the entity had got existed in which name he was carrying out his business operations
