In this case I agree with Pharaoh.
I just didn't get one thing, is this broker Ausie regulated or Mauritian?
CySEC only as of Monday the 6th April, 2015

Warm Regards,
So the core of the complaint is that some accounts are being moved from the totally useless regulation of Mauritius to the merely inadequate regulation of Cysec? I was unaware that a step up in regulation was considered to somehow be a bad thing. If I had an account with FxPrimus (I don't), I'd me much more worried if they were moving in the other direction.

Also, I see that AsstMod's question continues to be ignored.
I also didn't figured out, what is the problem. CySec is better than Mauritius regulator. Only thing, maybe anyone knows, what happens to IB/rebates...
I would appreciate it if Trader1979 and MikeH1 would provide account numbers or some other form of identifying information so that the representative from FxPrimus can check to see if there are any issues with their trading accounts.

If there is evidence of an investigation by any regulator, I would like to see that posted.

Providing a trading account number will not compromise a legal case. If there is evidence of a regulatory investigation, providing that will not endanger a legal case.

Ducking questions central to the issue will endanger this thread's continued presence in the Scam Alerts Folder. There are more appropriate folders for threads of that sort.

This is the second time I am asking. I will not ask a 3rd time.
What's your problem not showing your account numbers? If this is what's going to help you I would suggest you to answer Asstmod
Since no evidence of any real issue has been brought, and since the people complaining won't bother to answer simple questions, I think the best place for this thread is in the Forex Insanity folder.
