I’ve been a victim of scam of £60,000 in a last month, was approached by nice lady on FB called Andrea Darlene who then made me believe she was making huge profits trading on MT4 platform using HNDglobal.com, she send me a link and asked to register demo account to start with then shared her analist recommendations to trade on WEBGOLD which made some profit after few trades she then convinced me to open real account and asked how much I can invest to start with and deposit to my account.I have had some experience with this company and it does look like it may be a scam. First, it is nearly impossible to get anyone to respond to you for customer service. Moreover, when you ask a question they never answer the question directly. It is always a roundabout answer but not to the question asked. I invested $5000 and using hedging got my FOREX account up to $58,000 MT4 platform. I decided to withdraw $10,000 to make sure they were legitimate. I received a bizarre email saying that I had made a substantial profit and I needed to pay a tax within three days or my account would be frozen. Meanwhile, I could not get a direct answer about the withdrawal I was trying to make. I submitted withdrawal requests several times and there was no response. Finally, I used $9400 of the gain I had in the account and sent it to a Bitcoin link they had provided to pay the tax. (Bear in mind in the US we don’t pay the tax until tax time but they claimed that because they are offshore this is what international law requires. That was a huge red flag.) The most incredulous part is that they said I could not use the funds ($58,000) already in the account to pay the tax. It had to be new money from my personal bank account. Then I knew immediately there is no question they are a scam. I told a representative at FOREX.com about my experience and he filed an IC3 complaint as did I. I will also be contacting law enforcement in Britain where they claim to be incorporated, Hong Kong where they do business, and Australia where they also claim to do business. When I looked them up I found that they were incorporated in July of 2020 but on their website, they claim to have received awards as far back as 2010. Moreover, when I check with the entities that supposedly gave them the award there is nothing on their site about HND-Global.
Word to the wise, stay away.
After she introduced to Analyst called Jack who works for MT4 platform and after number of recommendations blow my account number of times as the market moved different direction and just been unlucky, convinced me to deposit more and he will match as a gift deposit made by MT4.
Long story short I end up with £60,000 loss within a month.
Please share any ideas how to get my money back.
