    I am writing to warn everyone who even remotely considers using IKON Group to forget about it and move on to the next broker. These guys should not even be allowed in the Forex market. Their English customer service employees are very unprofessional and cannot even speak English properly, not to mention their lack of knowledge on their products and services.

    When I requested to speak with the boss, they gave me an email of an IB representative which I will not name. He also could not help me and had no idea what I requested, so I asked to speak to his superior or anyone who may know a thing or two about their company. Next person, still very unprofessional and lacked adequate knowledge.

    When I asked to speak to the boss or CEO (who has been in the news for using Virtual Dealer Plugin) and has had a lot of bad reputation, I was curious as to see if my perception of him would change. I mentioned I wanted to chat with him about these issues and see his side of the story as I am a potential client and would like confidence before putting money in. They said he was not interested to speak and when I wanted to open an account and for how much. That was just plain rude and stupid.

    Anyways, to sum up, this company is very dodgy. They have different companies around the world but their main operations is in China. If you ask me the boss is using cheap labour costs in China to save on expenses so he can steal more money from honest people out there. So stay away if you dont want to get robbed. They are SCAM SCAM SCAM!

    P.S. I asked one of their representatives if they were aware of the case of MIKE which i read on these forums. Mike was declined withdrawal and asked them why they didn't give Mike his money back. The operator said he won too much money in such a short period and the CEO (Naser Taher) did not want to pay him the money.

    Was that in writing? If a phone call, did you get a recording?

    No personal experience with them, but I'm often amazed at what people report broker employees as saying. The hard part is that most of the time, the brokers don't want to make these communications in writing.

    Yeh lucky you have no personal experience with them because I really do not recommend them. I talked to a a guy named Fransis or something and I was wondering why there was so much shouting in the background. I thought it was very unprofessional because I couldn't hear what he was saying. He apologised saying it was the CEO of the company, Nasa or something. How unprofessional, I heard the CEO insulting the employees and degrading them as if they were animals. Certainly wouldn't want to support a guy who uses explicit language, and doesn't even know how to deal with his employees in a professional manner. If you want to trade with this company, you might as well throw your cash down the toilet. They are SCAM! Go fxcm or trading point. Much much much better, with better staff, better platforms and almost certainly a better management.

    Astro-trader. I am sorry that you do not have a good experience while you were communicating with Ikon CS.
    No objection, just few of my opinions:

    1) Ikon Group is a big company with almost 100 tele-sales. When u mentioned that you are a potential customer and wanted to talk to the CEO, I wonder you will be entertained.
    2) Ikon Group Asia head office is located in Beijing, China where they were once focusing in getting China clients. However, they are expanding and open up more branches n other location like Australia, Russia, Malaysia & Dubai......
    3) You did mentioned that you asked them some questions that those CS/IB manager can't get you a satisfy answer, mind to tell us what kind of question you are asking?
    4) I wonder how you can judge a broker as SCAM where you didn't even started with Account application or funding and withdrawal......????
