Original FPA Traders Court Submission:

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

My Case is: My name is Cecilia Sifuentes and this binary options company is a total SCAM. They look very nice at the beginning but after you invest with them and make profit and try to withdraw, they will not answer your emails again. My first deposit was 300, then I deposited 1600 more to get a silver account and be able to get more trade volume. I was having issues with the volume and Allen told me to deposit 300 dollars more so I can have unlimited trades, so I put 300 more totalling 2200. On 07/25/2013 I made a mistake and instead of clicking in withdraw option, I clicked in deposits and I accidentally deposit 2200 more into my account for a total of 4200. I contacted the Finance Department inmediatelly and they promised to refunded my money and profits but after that day, they stopped writing me back. Now I cannot get my money back because they blocked my IP address and I have no access to the live chat because it says that Im not a member anymore. I emailed the Finance Department and the Account Managers Allen and Oscar many many times without replies. I have prove of everything. If you can help me at least to get my investment back I will appreciate it. I'm very desperate and sad. Thanks very much

New thread in the Scam Alerts Folder:

Go ahead and send an invitation to every email address you can find for OptiMarkets. Ask then to come to your thread in the Scam Alerts folder.

I sent the invitation last week and a person named Limor who says it is in charge of doing the marketing for Optimarkets asked me to send her all my account details so she can investigate. She is now posting and writing in the Scam Alert Threat that is opened against Optimarkets. Im going to wait to see what happens this week. Nobody else from Optimarkets has contacted me. Thanks for your support

Limor stopped emailing me when I asked her for full refunds, she disappeared, so now I lost contact with everybody in Optimarkets. I filed a complaint against them in CFTC and econsumer. Im very sad!!

Really sorry to hear about this, which looks more like blatant theft than anything to do with trading. I notice that they're registered in the British Virgin Islands and found this site: Money Matters BVI > Protecting Your Money > Avoiding Fraud

which recommends this:

If you run into a scam, please report it to the British Virgin Islands Financial Investigation Agency, which is responsible for handling financial offenses in the BVI. The BVI FIA has more information on how to keep your money safe. View the FIA’sBeware of Scams flyer.

I also ran into this comment on a review:

This company is a fraud. I have been fighting to get my deposit sent back to my bank. They have no address, no phone #, and only respond late by email. they want so much info from me to refund my MONEY to my bank THAT THEY COULD STEAL ALL THE MONEY IN THE ACCOUNT.
They want front and back of my card, which gives them the secret code, my utilties bills., a photo Id just to send my money to my bank. Even my bank, Wells Fargo, agrees this is dangerous and sounds very suspicious.

And if I were as mad as you probably are, I would consider googling optimarkets and lerwick capital, where you'll find a list of websites where you can post your own warning messages about this company so that all their advertising becomes worthless to anyone who reads the comments on their obviously placed reviews.

I may be wrong, but this doesn't look like a "real" company. Just a method of extracting cash and credit card details from unsuspecting victims. Did you deposit by credit card or bank transfer? If the former, maybe you have some recourse with your card company to reclaim the money through them.

Good luck with this, although I'd try to imagine that you actually spent the $4K on a nice holiday to the BVI, where you had a wonderful time helping to close down a scam company and keep the beaches safe from sharks like this...
