    On 9th March 2017 my account manager at Trade-24 (Daniel Bergman) phoned me to say that there was high-impact News coming up the following day and that he had a special venture in mind that was guaranteed to make a lot of money. I replied that I wasn't interested, as I had only just succeeded in withdrawing my funds from Trade-24 which had taken 5 weeks and cost me a lot of nerves. Trade-24 had done everything in it's power to prevent me from withdrawing, so the last thing I wanted to do was deposit with them again !

    Daniel Bergman replied that he was there to make amends for this negative experience and that he would show me how profitable this venture would be. He was even so sure of himself that he promised me to refund me my €2.5k from his own pocket should things go wrong. He was so persistent with all his arguments that I finally gave in and stupidly deposited the €2.5k for him to trade with.

    Not only did he NOT trade that Friday as promised, but only the following Wednesday, when most of his trades went horribly wrong. Instead of going down, Gold went up (as did EURUSD of course) - all trades highly correlated and with completely exaggerated lot-sizes. Even doubling-up on the losses ! Imagine opening trades just shortly before the FOMC AND a Trump speech, then leaving them open when they go drastically wrong !

    After my entire deposit had been wiped out, he told me not to worry, he would put things straight again and "restore my account". How, if there was no money left ? He said, just wait and see - he had made a promise and he would keep it. As a Russian, a promise is sacred - Blah-blah...

    Soon after this, Bergman disappeared completely. When I asked what had become of him, some said "on vacation", others said "at a seminar", his successor Charlie King even said he had been fired ! Anyway, my new account manager (Charlie King) insisted that I make a further deposit, saying that he would recoup the losses for me.

    Incredible, how Trade-24 cleverly pulls the money out of your pocket, blows it entirely and then has the audacity to insist that you deposit more ! I want my €2.5k investment back again, that they cleverly cheated me out of. I hope FPA can help me. Until then, my advice to all: stay well away from Trade-24 !

    "... transferred to customer support" - and that's probably the last we'll ever hear from them ! Great way to solve a problem: just pass it on to so-called "support" ! They steal your hard-earned money and when you complain, they pass you on to Support, expecting you to shut-up and leave them in peace.

    Is this the best you can do, Trade-24 ?

    Give them some time to reply. Wait till Monday and update us in the meanwhile if you get a reply. If they keep you waiting until next Thursday, proceed with a trader court case. 1 week is more than enough to identify and solve the problem

    Hello, Martin! 21.03.2017 at 11:45 in a conversation with the manager, you cancelled the request for withdrawal of funds, which were informed. If you want to withdraw this money, duplicate your request, please.

    With best regard, Trade-24
