Original FPA Traders Court Submission:

I am submitting the case against: www.forexgcg.com

My Case is: My story starts from buying an EA from a man whose name is Churls McMilan.
After paying fee for the EA he guided me to open an account with Forexgcg.com (Global Clearing Group). He said his EA was working with that broker very well. Until that time I had no doubt about him and about the broker.

So I applied to open an account to this broker.
The web site said the minimum initial deposit money was 2000$, also I received an email from their office saying, minimum deposit was 2000$ - refer to attached email page #1.

So I sent 2000$ by Liberty Reserve. They confirmed me that they received 2000$, but they added that minimum deposit was 5000$ so I had to pay 3000$ more – refer to attached email page #2.

For this I sent an email arguing the minimum deposit amount. But they insisted to deposit 3000$ more – refer to attached email page #3.

At this stage Churls McMilan suggested me that he would visit their office and would pay 1000$ on behalf of me, then I would pay rest of the balance.
So I paid 2000$ again and received an email from them that they received 1000$ from Churls McMilan on behalf of me and received 2000$ from me, so the account information would be sent shortly – refer to attached email page #4.

Then they asked me to pay another 500$ to enable EA trading – refer to attached email page #5.
I realized something was going wrong, but I went too far to give up there.
So I paid 500$. Then they said they didn’t receive 500$, and said to me to pay 500$ again.

Realizing something was going wrong, I have asked them to refund the money that I paid (4,500$, except the guy said paid).

But no refund, no action. Also Churls McMilan stopped any response. I realized that he was one of them. I think he was playing this dirty game.

They are crazy - no refund no response.
They are really mean and wicked scammers. How can we prevent this kind of fraud?
They just swallowed my money and played dirty game.

I have attached Email correspondences, the Liberty Reserve transaction records, and their website screen shorts showing their Liberty Reserve account number.

I hope I can get help from Forex Peace Army.

Thanks Pharaoh for your comment! I haven't got case number yet. When I get it I might invite them.

Don't invite them to this thread. It can only be seen by you and a handful of "friends of the court" (many of which are inactive). Invite them to your public thread in Scam Alerts.

I've just sent a formal FPA invitation. What worries me is that the forexgcg website is down right now.

I noticed it now. Yes, they closed it down.
Lets see how they will respond.

Although they do not respond anything, at least we can prevent further victims if they close down their website.

Thanks for your effort!

Let's wait and see what they will do!

" Until that time I had no doubt about him and about the broker." My question is: how did this Churls McMilan, which sounds like a name made up by a spammer's computer, convince you that you should trust him him with all this money? How did you get in contact with him? I ask because this sounds like a 'hit and run' fraud - a bogus website used for short time to rake in money and then closed with no way of getting in contact. Which that they very probably try it again and so, we should all be warned as to their method of picking up victims

Dear nzfriendlee!

Liberty Reserve is well known to me. I lost about 1,250 when I transferred money via them to a third person. I think this is a pool for thieves and scam.

I hope you will get your money back - even when I doubt it.

Wish you all the best for the future

Yours Jens
