Well, i Found out too late.. now that i found out and want to withdraw money, then they say there is some abnormality in the account and I need to deposit 3000 USD to verify my id. Makes no sense. They are really cold and heartless people scamming others like this. I really hope they will get what they deserve in this life or the life after. The shamelessness of these people.
I have reported them to the Hong Kong police and the Security and Futures Commission in Hong Kong.
I hope all victims can do this also in order for them to prioritize this case and then maybe, you have a small chance or the only chance of recovering your losses if the people get caught.
I reported to police in the below link and chose cyber crime.
Hi Alex, i’m the victims too! You manage to get your money back? Actually my trading result seem like make some profit. But, When i requested to withdraw my entire funds from this Broker! They are demanding me to pay 10% for income tax including processing fee! However, i found that this broker are scammer! Hence, i decided to report my case to Police and make funds recall request from Bank! Currently, I’m still awaiting for the result from Police and Bank. Hopefully, it would be processed successfully!
