    Hello all,

    I have been having an issue with Plus500. They refuse to pay my profit out.
    I have created an account with Plus500.com.au, they have AFSL #417727 issued by ASIC.

    I thought this was enough to assure me they are trustworthy. I have verified my account and everything was accepted and my account was fully verified. I deposited 5000 euro and made profit. I managed to withdraw this back to my creditcard and i also verified this credit card by sending a photo of the front and back and they accepted it.

    Then i deposited 5000 euro with my 2nd card and made also profit and tried to verify my card. I took a picture of the front and back and it got refused and my account got restricted. I can't withdraw or deposit anymore.

    I got an email from Patrick Busby:
    They want me to send document by post to them in Australia.
    First of all, there is no such thing as certified documents in my country (i live in the netherlands).
    Second of all, i'm a very busy man and i don't even have time to gather all this documents and then post them to them.
    I just think this is a method for them to stall the withdrawal. I'm refusing to send this and i would like money back and my profit and then i will end my business relationship with them.

    It is very easy to deposit with them, but once you try to withdraw or make profit. They try to make your life very hard. They agreed to send my deposit back, but i don't think they will send my profit untill i send them the 'certified' documents.

    I have already provided everything i had. From picture of ID to picture of credit cards and statements.
    They just want me to send them everything by post to stall everything.

    I'm very busy and work everyday 10 hours.
    Obtaining credit card statements signed by the director and an utility bill signed by an ambassador is impossible for me???
    Let me tell you what they want.

    They know if i send them documents from Netherlands to AU it will take atleast 1 month to arrive.
    The 'checking' of the documents will take another month. And then finally they will tell me that the documents were not accepted and that i have to swim from the Netherlands to their office in AU.

    They don't even make an effort in solving this issue or paying me out.
    This is the last email i received from them on 31/07

    I feel powerless and i know i won't see my money, but i don't care. I just want them to be marked as scammers on the review section.
