Get the bank account details they are using and post on here.
I'm pretty sure they aren't taking bank account info, and stealing money directly. I think the goal is to get you to deposit money into Macking Financial Limited (which may be totally or mostly fraudulent), lul you into security by making you money on the advice of her "uncle," then lose you a lot of money, that Macking will come after you for. And ideally the mark wouldn't even be sure they were scammed, because they had made all the transactions with a broker they thought was legit.

You should just let them know you are very interested and ready to wire the money. They will let you know how to transfer the money to them. You can gather all those info just like that, there must be a way for them to get the victims' money.

I agree, then come back and post all the information in this thread as a warning to others Obviously don't initiate any transfers of funds.

The clever bit about this scam is that the mark never transfers money to the scammer... Instead they voluntarily deposit funds in what seems like a legitimate FOREX brokerage. This is the page that comes up when you tap the deposit credit card icon in MT5, with Macking Financial Limited DEMO chosen as your broker (as per the scammer's instructions):

user.macking-forex.com


From here a user could deposit cryptocurrency, likely never to be seen again.

I also have a theory that the large, consistent gains that the "uncle's" instructions were able to achieve with the Macking demo account may be fake. If Macking's market info is faked/altered, then picking the perfect time to open and close a position is trivial.

Virtual dealer plug-in is a 3rd party software used by scammers for all MetaTrader (MT) accounts. This plug-in allows anyone to change the account balances, the signal prices, delay signals and even show fake withdraws from the account. So yes, anything on MT is fake and manipulated.

How were you introduced to Macking? Was it a direct message and conversation from a stranger, or something else?

Talk the all screenshot of your trade first, are you able to login in your account right?

Consider local lawyer and share the entire incident with him.
I had this happen to me as well. Just recently. The woman contacted me thru Instagram. Then asked me to join whatsapp. We talked to for 2 months before she convinced me to enter trading in foreign exchange. She told me to do metatrader 5. The broker is Macking - Forex.com. when she first contacted me i looked them up and saw nothing bad regarding the company. We did a couple of trades she and looked like I was making money. She kept insisting to put more money and that she would match me of whatever I would deposit into macking.

I never dealt with these trades. She was guiding me. One minute at 303pm im up 40k. Then when she says to close at 304pm im kicked out and unable to close and all my money was lost. I was never aware that this could happen. I would be able to close order when i saw negative but u would see 7k or 10k it would trickle.

Im now out of more than 40k. Im stressed out and suicidal. I am feeling scammed. They want me to pay after all this. PLEASE CHIME.
YES I WAS NAIVE
