    Hi Folks,

    Great to see a site set up to help people ripped off by these unscrupolous scammers.

    I have just been scammed $106,00 US by a company called Hong Kong (HK) Forex Co. Ltd in Hong Kong. 36 Wang Kwong Rd Kowloon Bay Hong Kong

    It started when I was called by a Jeremy Hamilton, a representative of this Co. I was offered US/AUS dollar options to expire June 08. A web site address was supplied, HKForex (H.K.) Co. Ltd. which I checked out and checked them out on another website refered to by them www.fsra financial service regulatory association. Apparently the governing body in Hong Kong for such companies. I have since found out that this association does not exist and the website was operated by the same scammers.
    All seemed above board and I traded call & put options for several weeks, with another rep. Michael Kingston, appearently making resonable profits, I was encouraged to purchase a "Bankers block" of 75 call & 25 put options which I did.
    These options were sold last week and the funds were deposited into my HK Forex trading account. When requested a withdraw on the funds I was told the funds would be clearded in 72 hrs and available in my Australian account.
    The funds never appeared in Australia and the phone lines are now cut and it seems the smammers have scampered.
    I have notified the Securities & Futures Commission in Hong Kong and I have all correspondence, Account statements, International Money Transfer reciepts, screen shots etc etc.

    Little confused...

    .... in USA they use the decimal point to show cents and comma to mark 000,000, etc.

    106,00 ?? $106.00 usd or are you missing a zero ($106,000.00)

    Me Too

    Hi Michael 123,
    I too have been ripped for $80,000AUS by these scum. Same routine as you, though I was passed from Jeremy Hamilton to a Michael Kingston who subsequestly dealt with me. I wish that I had found this site 2 weeks ago. as when I initially searched the internet for anything about HKForex I could not find any negative vibes.
    I am only new to these types of forums and would like to know if any one or any consumer body is actively seeking these #%$@'s to at least attempt to bing them to justice. I don't honestly expect to see any of my money again I just want to see them hert as much as I am

    Hi Ralph08,

    No, this is a total scam, there never was any chance of withdrawing my money. I hope you are not being ripped by these dogs. Are you?

    HK Forex

    Hi there, I just found this site today i think it is a realy good site. I thought i would let you know that i have also been scammed by the HK Forex aswell. I was scammed $25000.00 us dollars. I had a Jun Neri then a Charles Sinclair that had me hooked line and sinker. He also told me i can with draw within 3 days. I had great returns on this aswell. I lost my last bit of money doing this. I dont think there is any way of getting our money back now.

    Hi michael I know i you feel. When i found out this was a scam i felt sick and i could not eat for days i cried my self to sleep. I still have all my documents from there web sites and what was ment to be my personal account.
