hey guys, first time here and first scam
deposited $250 and traded myself up to $7,199.00 (after a $1350,00 refund as broker Peter Shaw traded me down to almost nothing) and tried a $2500 withdrawal and it was denied, Sam Melnik called me to propose a $5000 insured contract as I had the available money in my account, so I agreed, the contract won at $8700 today and now am advised that it was a vip trade that cost them money and they froze my account until I deposit another $5000, this morning I said very clearly to Sam Melnik whatever happens do NOT ask me for money and he NEVER talked about vip trades, he told me that these were normally 10K but the market was so up and down that he could do it for 5K, even sent it in email to make sure he understood and have a screen shot with my account balance, now I have a John Lewis telling me he has no time to waist to traders that are not serious.. now I did get my original $250 back but must say I want the money I traded up myself back.. but all is frozen and not counting on any support from optionsxo departments, they just don't reply.. so other then that $1350 all was traded and risked by me and I want it, here is a skype conversation with Sam Melnik whe I asked him about my 5K and its availability

''and Yes you will be able to withdrawal it, your account made Total Traded Amount : 35,230.00 means you all ready wagered it''

here is a screen shot from yesterday (sorry hare the drive box open but amounts and date is clear)

If you had lost the "insured" trade, there would have been an excuse to not pay you or two only repay with a bonus. If they offered and executed a so-called insured trade, then they owe you your winnings whether or not you met some new requirement they just made up.

File a report with eConsumer.gov and share the report number.

If you deposited by credit card, call the fraud department at the card's issuing bank and explain what's going on. While you have them on the phone, ask about places to file online financial fraud charges. Report back and let everyone know what they say.

I have my initial deposit back, all remaining funds were traded up by me so other then demand withdrawals there is not much I can do but will file with econsumer.gov for sure, have already invited them here and on other forums, filed a complaint to cycec and will continue updating, following Omid's situation very closely as well

here is a complete breakdown of my situation

''I initially deposited $250, then a broker called me and made a few trades up to $725 then he started asking for cash, I refused many times but continued to trade and made my way up to $7199 in about a week, after being denied for a $2500 withdrawal i then received a call from Sam Melnik telling what a great job I was doing and proposed a $5000 insured contract (oil) seeing I had no other deposits and that he told me that this was usually only possible with 10k but since the market was all up and down they are accepting 5K contracts, he said it would be a huge mistake to withdraw at this point as these contracts make money, so I agreed as this was not money from my bank account but told him whatever happens do not ask me for more money, he said of course not, worst case if we lose you get your 5K back and its in form of cash because of my trade volume (I would have to lose twice for my 5K to become bonus).. so the contract won $8700 and he calls me, congrats he says you made some money.. now this was a trade reserved for vip clients only and that it was part of a 2 trade package and I must deposit 5K to continue trading, told him he was a lying p**** then he passed me a John Lewis who told me I was lucky that I could actually speak to him and he doesn't have time to lose with non serious traders and he has frozen my account and hung up.. just like that 10K''
