I was scammed by EmpireOption


Hello everybody, my name is Eduardo Alvarado, from Mexico.

At the end of November 2016, I created a “micro” account with EmpireOption. The following day, I received a phone call from an account agent (called Matías Rodriguez), and with a promise to having big earnings, I was convinced to upgrade to a “Preferential” account, with a total invested amount of 5000 USD. Later the same day, the account agent called me to give me directions to make some investments.

I made 5 long-term operations, as suggested by the account agent. All of these operations were to expire on December 30. On December 23, I decided to sell some of the operations, and processed a withdraw from my account (2500 USD). The same day, I received a phone call from the account agent, and he told me that I needed to request a bonus, to continue having funds in my account. I refused to apply that bonus, however the agent insisted and told me that it was mandatory to apply the bonus so I could withdraw money, and told me that my withdraw was already authorized anyway, and my deposit would be applied on December 28. I had no choice but to request the bonus; however when I received the 2000 USD bonus, my withdraw was immediately canceled, the accounting people told me that I needed to operate 30 times the bonus, in order to request any withdraw.

Now my money is kidnapped with EmpireOption, and in order to have a possibility to withdraw any amount of money I have to operate a volume equal to/greater than to 54000 USD, which is completely insane, considering that I didn’t even agree requesting that bonus.

Warning to all traders: do not invest a single penny with EmpireOption, they are scammers!!
