Gcg International will not allow withdrawal I think I have been scammed. Curious about Bitcoin advert responded to advert, contacted by Gcg International broker opened account August 2020 with usd250. Traded moderately until December 2020, persuaded by broker and securities and risk specialist manager of Gcg International to add usd 50,000 to account. In January both these guys wanted me to add more for insurance for the account, another usd30,000. Refused and suffered appalling verbal abuse from both saying I had ruined the company credit line because I wouldn’t pay insurance. Wouldn’t allow me to withdraw any funds. Account balance well over usd250.00 and told me the company were going to consume my account and use it to recover losses caused by me! Broker informed me it would be 6-9 months before I could take out the balance of
Usd235k. The account is on Mt4 I have names, account numbers, trading history screen shots, just didn’t know how much to put here.
A month later contacted by another broker who was now my new broker as previous one had left! Discussed everything with her but just same story - pay us more money upfront to allow withdrawal.
I had no experience of trading, forex or any financial knowledge but had read and heard about Bitcoin.

Hello thank you for replying the initial deposit was usd250 paid by credit card which is no longer in use. Opened an account with Kraken and the further deposits were made through them.

--> We need all of the deposits. What was the total sum of deposits? And if you have dates for each deposit, that would be good.

--> Trading account statements: post the entire statement here, following these instructions: https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/comm...ccount-trade-history-statements-part-1.63543/

In the mean time, do NOT send them anymore money. And avoid sending anyone else any more money.
