Octafx scam - Eat my profit 74000$+

Stefx News

Recommending more bucket shops is not the way forward. If you don't know the business model of the brokerage you are trading with, STOP trading. It's that simple.

You don't have to let the gambling/greed impulse overwhelm you.
icmarkets, tickmill, swissquote bank are bucket shops for your opinion?


I was cheated by octafx, octafx eat my profit money 74000$+. I believe ForexPeaceArmy can help me in this case. I have all proofs with me. My account number 6058799.

On 25th March 2020 I made profit around 68000$+ on XAUUSD, I made a withdrawal request 3600$ and showed complete status, but after I made 55000$ Withdrawal request that 3600$ Request changed to pending status, than I ask to customer support they said some time it’s Take 3 days, I never get that 3600$ till date (I have trade history .html and .csv files contain this detail), the same day’s night I got whatsapp chat and call from Mr.tarun (IB) he talk nicely and congratulate me as “sir you made good profit” and explain about my gifts like android phone and ear pod etc... ( I have whatsapp chat history proof)

On 26th March 2020 I made profit on EURUSD than my account balance 74000$+, suddenly my account blocked, than they said investigation, arbitrage, TCD team, customer agreement.

On 9th April 2020. They just give back my deposit money around 600$ & After 2 weeks their XAUUSD chart runs on mt5. What this means?

Questions for octafx.com

1. You are using cysec license number for octafx.com but that license number only for octafx.eu. Why you are cheating traders while you are not regulated by cysec

2. Your so called arbitrage! Give evidence and prove my trade uses arbitrage strategy.

3. Your customer agreement p 4.8 said you can cancel only arbitrage orders. How you cancel all orders? Please prove with my trade history.

4. I come to know octafx.com is B-Book broker company (Mr. Tarun octafx IB confirms) Everything fine with your company until make profits, you are happy while clients lose their money because it’s come to your pocket directly, but while clients made profit you are not ready to give... but this time you need to give!

I ask ForexPeaceArmy admins and users to support and protect ordinary traders like me.

I am ready to produce all proofs from my side including trade history ( I download that before octafx delete )

icmarkets, tickmill, swissquote bank are bucket shops for your opinion?

I will answer your question with a question: Have you fully evaluated their business model? (how the broker profits from their client's trading activity). The answer to your question is there.

I can also say based on experience that only a handful of brokers are agency model. Plus another less-than-handful implement hybrid model fairly.

The average retail (and even several institutional) traders do not have the tools to evaluate a broker to know the difference.

That is real reason why the FPA scam alerts folder is so active.
