I have been approached by some FPA members asking about their legal alternatives to get their money. So I decided to post this thread in order to help people to get all information they need to use their legal tools.
Many of the FX/financial scams are being made by unregulated companies, nevertheless, you can still go ahead and file a complaint for the financial regulator where the company is located (or they claim they are located). Please find the list of financial regualtors by country:
List of financial regulatory authorities by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example: : if you would like to complain against a company who is located in Cyprus, you need to file a complaint in Cysec. Also please note that you can complain against all EU regulated companies through the FSA/FCA as well.
NOTE: some companies are regulated by more than one regulator.
Also, another option is the Cyber police, now here I suggest you will report the scam/crime in the police where the company is located/regulated and where you are physically regulated. I have found this site where you can find all cyber police and internet crime unites by country:
Report Internet Crime around the World at ccmostwanted.com
From my experience, usually the companies are trying to avoid dealing with the regulator and the police and will try to solve your case when you see you took these actions.
Good luck everyone!
