Hi,

Has anyone heard of this Broker? Are they a scam?

WEBSITE: rimfxgroup.com

Some review says they are bad (see: wikifx.com/us_en/dealer/6051796268.html). Do you know any regulatory body from which we can cross-verify if a particular broker is trustable or otherwise?

A friend I met online introduced to me.

Thanks!

Sorry if this sounds personal. You don't have to answer publicly if you don't want to, but I want you to think about it closely. The question is: Did you meet this online friend on a dating site?

The reason I ask is that there's been a wave of people reporting pretty girls who show off their expensive possessions and then apply either gentle pressure or even just somehow managed to have the person witness some "amazing" trading results. What none of these girls do is actually ever meet the guy for a date. Their real job is to lure in new investors. Most of the brokers involved are just like this one - Chinese-English websites and not a lot of details. There are good brokers with Chinese-English sites, but those typically have all the details you need to verify their credentials.

Even if this is some well established friend you've known online for years, the website you showed is worrisome for a number of reasons.

1. Claims a US address, but makes no mention of US regulation. Check other US regulated broker sites and you'll see this.
2. rimfxgroup.com was first registered on April 8, 2020. No matter how GREAT a broker may be, I want a company with a lot more history.
3. It's hosted on the same IP as reset-invest.com, which was only created on June 27, 2019.
4. Both those domains were only registered for one year. Why would anyone register a broker and not make sure the domain would be valid for at least several years?
5. Reset-invest.com falsely claims to be under Cysec license 278/15. That license belongs to a different broker and does not mention either rimfxgroup.com or reset-invest.com as a domain authorized to display the license.

Take your money and run far and fast away from this company. If you want to be a good citizen, report them to the NFA, CFTC, and Cysec.

its fake trading company, and mostly they ask investor deposit via bitcoin/crypto because it is not reversible

Hi Pharaoh & certablet:

I really appreciate your inputs. Unfortunately, by the time I initiated the thread, I have already gotten myself in the mess. This whole situation is stressing me out!

--------

Main Trouble: I am about to receive "Lawyer Letter" for my "debt" with the BROKER!

Question: ”Can an Unregulated broker sue me?” [they are not registered in my country]

Potential RED FLAG: wikifx.com/us_en/dealer/6051796268.html

Fast Chronology - In case anyone is interested to Read Up.
( please restrain from judging my stupidity. I admit my mistake)


1. I met a guy on Tinder (from China), claimed himself to be a businessman of a real estate management company in Changsha, China..

2. To cut the story short, he introduced me to Forex - RIMFX as the broker & MT4 as the trading platform. (ofc with all the other promises to earn money together etc)

3. He asked me to specifically download the software from RIMFX website. And I did, and started a demo account. After a week or so, I hesitantly deposited USD1000. Few days later, I did my first real trading, and won USD105. All of the trading was based on this guy's instruction.. for example: "XAU/ USD -- 3.00 -- SELL".. Etc.

Question: can MT4 platform be manipulated/ hacked?

4. I tried to withdraw the winning money, and within a day I received it. I asked the Customer Service Manager (LINE ID: kef999) why the sender left no formal information which could link back to their company? Why does the sender appear to be quite sketchy? (Sender, named the transaction as "Aircond Service Fees"..).. Customer Service replied "Oh, it is from our local agent/ agency in Malaysia. If we use our company acc. to transfer, it'll take more time to be processed".

5. The guy from TINDER said he likes me and wanted me to help me earn more. Hence, he deposited 5000 usd into my trading account = now I have ard 6000USD. [To be honest, I did not want his money. But he insisted it his way of showing his sincerity bla bla.]

6. To cut the story short again - Yesterday (FRIDAY ard 10.15pm), he said there was a good market and we started trading.

7. I had a problem. He gave the instruction of "XAU/ USD -- 3.00 -- SELL" but when I clicked on the "Sell"... It was weird koz I am hearing like an "Error sound". Before this, all successful process will give out like a more pleasant sound. So, I wasn't sure if I was TRADING or there was an error. Moreover, I could not see the (X) or CLOSE BUTTON (just in case I was already in the trading process).. I tried to figure out what happen, and then after 5 minutes, I opened my account via RIMFX website, i was shocked to see the amount to be in the NEGATIVE (-5785).

I never knew the trade could be negative until I read about it on the internet.

8. I had no idea what NEGATIVE meaning means until I got an email from the BROKER (Today Saturday Afternoon Malaysian Time) asking me to pay them the -5785USD within 3 days.

9. I asked the Tinder guy, what will happen if I fail to pay on time? He jus said, the Broker will send me a Lawyer Letter (this is not mentioned in the email. the email just said, “Please handle it within three working days, so as not to affect your personal credit and credit investigation, which will bring you inconvenience.

What am i supposed to do? Should I pay back the -5785 USD? I'm so stressed!

:eek:

I hesitantly deposited USD1000...
how do you deposit the US$1k? dont worry about the rest, its all fake

(Sender, named the transaction as "Aircond Service Fees"..).. Customer Service replied "Oh, it is from our local agent/ agency in Malaysia. If we use our company acc. to transfer, it'll take more time to be processed".
there are nigerian based in malaysia involved in scam, what they do is had relationship with real local businesses and find out their bank details, once victims deposit the money. scammer told business already pay, and later reject the required services and business will return the money back to scammer with cash in hand.

..
yes its all fake threat

any company/individual offering investment in forex, gold, financial/securities trading product require to obtain a license from financial regulator, when investor is trading the market, your buy or sell order is passed to the exchange, there is real trading being executed

Exchange is regulated by government. here is a list of authorised japanese company allowed to perform transaction in the market exchange

Code:
https://www.fsa.go.jp/en/regulated/licensed/index.html#03
https://www.fsa.go.jp/en/regulated/licensed/fibo.pdf
this company does not appear to be in the list, apparently looks like a general business company
Code:
Account Name : YASHIMA TRADING COMPANY
Bank Account :3974686
what scammer do is had relationship with real local businesses and find out their bank details, once victims deposit the money. scammer told business owner already pay, either for buying products or services, and scammer keep it for themselves

i dont know about your china friend, but the website you are being told to use is rimfxgroup.com
when depositing money to the bank account, name should be rimfxgroup, if it is other name, it is definitely scam. rimfxgroup.com website also do not have verifiable license number for financial trading

also report the scammer to line for scam abuse

Thank You Acertablet. You are very knowledgeable and very helpful!

1. I will definitely report the LINE ID ( who claims himself to be the Customer Service Manager for RIMFXGROUP.COM)

2. Do you have any advice on what should be done with my Trading Account in https://www.rimfxgroup.com?
Should I delete my account, or I can just ignore everything?

3. One thing for sure, when I first registered with https://www.rimfxgroup.com, they asked for a copy my Malaysian ID. With them having a softcopy of my ID, will that put me in any risk?

TQ

Ask them to PLEASE send the lawyer letter as fast as possible. Then, scan it, edit out your personal info, and post it here. Usually, letters like those are very funny.

And if you don't do that, I'll send a lawyer letter to your 1st grade teacher who will then be required to make you repeat your entire education. Obviously, even if I really did have such a letter sent, it would not have the effect I'm claiming it would. :D

Talk to your local police and ask them what level of ID theft they think you are at risk of, and also what you can do about it.


AcerTablet - GoDaddy is the world's largest registrar of domain names. The domain is registered through GoDaddy. It is not owned by them. Unfortunately, privacy rules around the world have GoDaddy sharing a lot less contact information on domains than they used to. An abuse report to them would be a reasonable step.
