Was that by bank wire or credit card? Either way, contact your bank immediately. Also, contact HSBC in London and point them to the warning about CityEQ.com issued by the FCA.

If you are in the UK, notify Action Fraud and also contact the FCA directly.

Is HSBC able to return my money back ? and what about Action Fraud? are they able to catch the person if she or he outside UK ?

As I understand it, Action Fraud will get the info to the correct part of the police if anyone from the UK is involved on either end of an issue.

Action Fraud

You need to contact your bank as well as the bank you sent the money too. The longer you wait, the less chance they can help.

That will somewhat depend on what your bank and HSBC said when you contacted them.

I've gone ahead and issued a formal invitation to CityEQ. If they don't reply, this will go to a vote.

This firm is registered with the FSA in the UK:
Financial Services Register
enter "155051" as the registered ID for this firm ( CityEQ.com )

For the effective date the regulatory authority is the FCA. Here is the link to the FCA for filing a complaint, and / or what further action to take:
How to complain - Financial Conduct Authority

This is a lot of money in question, and if CityEQ does not respond to a withdrawal request in a timely manner, this should be regarded as felony fraud, theft and deception and reported to the regulators. Based on the evidence, the next reasonable step should be to seek legal counsel for the purpose of filing a lawsuit against these alleged financial fraud perpetrators.

Filing a case with the FPA may serve to warn other potential investors, and possibly help to stem the flow of new business which in turn may force these alleged perpetrators to settle the case by returning the funds in question.
