    Discuss is for general discussions of a financial company or issues related to companies.

    Info is for things like "Has anyone heard of Company X?" or "Is Company X legit or not?"

    Compare is for things like "Which of these 2 (or more) companies is best?"

    Searching is for things like "Help me pick a broker" or "What's the best VPS out there for trading?"

    Problem is for reporting an issue with a company. Please don't just scream "CompanyX is a scam!" It is much more useful to say "I can't withdraw my money from Company X" or "Company Y is not honoring their refund guarantee" in the subject line.
    Keep Problem discussions civil and lay out the facts of your case. Your goal should be to get your problem resolved or reported to the regulators, not to see how many insults you can put into the thread.

Problem scam SigmaForex Non Dealing Desk account, not able to withdraw funds

I am having an issue with a company


I am unable to withdraw initial funds from SigmaForex Non Dealing Desk account. The account trading can be monitered at MT4Live.com - Share Your MT4 Statements Free

I received final statement for my account funds is 2776.99 EUR on 2009-06-29. I then sent in formal withdraw request form sent in on 2009-06-30. I received SigmaForex confirmation that withdraw form is processed on 2009-07-18.

SigmaForex first deducted the 2700 EUR from my account on 2009-06-29 cl 14:11 and then put the funds back on the 2009-07-14. cl 13:08.

There is no reply to my withdraw email to SigmaForex backoffice, and their chat is hardly to get contact with. The telephone number on their webside is not contactable.

So I need FPA help me to get my funds back, at least to get my initial deposite 2000EUR back to my bank account.

Until I get my funds back to my bank account, I consider SigmaForex is a company that you shall NOT send your money to.

Sigma is infamous for taking forever on withdrawals.

Don't just email backofffice@sigmaforex.com. Also send to admin@sigmaforex.com. Stay on their case. Let them know you've got a thread here. Send them a link to it.

The last thing we heard was that they are merging with some other company and that everything will work perfectly after that. Then again, they kept claiming that everything has been working perfectly up until now.
My signed formal withdraw form was sent in to sigmaforex on the 2009-June-30. SigmaForex still hold my funds in my trading account and not processed my withdraw form yet on today 2009-august-05. I have sent in SigmaForex a signed formal complain form today on 2009-August-05.
I wonder who's buying out Sigma? I can't picture any company wanting to merge with them.

Anyone care to start a betting pool on how long they can milk the "we're busy with a merger" excuse?
Today 2009-august-15, SigmaForex still not process my withdraw form. The Funds 2776 EUR is still held in my trading account at SigmaForex. You can see the account details is published at http://goodies2.mt4live.com

On the 2009-06-27, I received final statement for my account from SigmaForex, stated as 2776 EUR.

On the 2009-06-30, I sent in a signed withdraw form to SigmaForex, to request withdraw 2776.99 EUR from trading account 5014890 to my bank account.

On the 2009-08-05, I sent in a formal complain form to SigmaForex about not be able to withdraw from own trading account.

On the 2009-08-06, SigmaForex reply to me that my withdraw shall be processed within 2 weeks. If counted from 2009-august-07, then the withdraw shall be done at no late than 24th of august.
SigmaForex is listed at the house of companies, however it is marked “dissolved” from the 2009-March-31.

WebCHeck - Select and Access Company Information

SigmaForex is not registered with FSA. Unauthorised firms / individuals

S.F. Invest Limited/ Sigmaforex.com Limited listed is not registed with FSA.

So SigmaForex is lacking of any license to conduct financial service. Yet SigmaForex has been and is taking money from client and refuse to provide withdraw service. I consider this is finance fraud behaviour. I have already reported this to London Police, FSA and European Consumer Centre network.

All I want to is to retrieve the 2366.99EUR from my trade account 5014890 to my bank account. I do not need the 400 EUR bonus from SigmaForex. Although in sigmaForex final statement, stated that I have 2766 EUR in my trade account and is entitled by me.

If I am not receive email from SigmaForex that provides me evidence that you have bankwired my funds from my trade account to my bankaccount on the 2009-August-26, I will issue a county court claim against sigmaForex. Then the loser part will pay for the court expenses.
