If I could give a no star rating, that would be too high.

I deposited $5 000.00 They traded on my behalf without my authority and cleaned out my account in one day.

After many conversations they credited my account with $ 1 600.00 I have tried to withdraw the money to no avail. My thinking was that I should reduce my loss and take the money they credited. Now I want the full $5 000.00 refund.

Their website tells me that my personal information is not up to date, but the website will not allow me to update my information, although the website will accept deposits. E-mails to their support service goes unanswered. I am filing complaints with the financial services ombudsman for Cyprus. This is the worst of a bad bunch. Very smooth talking pushy sales people.

Don"t be cautious about Interactive, just stay clear all together.

I disliked these guys the most out of my 5 binary brokers I have tested with real money. They a heartless and rude. Also anything close always goes their way. I rated them 1 star just because I disliked the whole process with them. I do not know if they are a scam or not, but I would stay away. One of their reps. lied to me so I would open a bigger account. Find someone else to trade with.

Decent broker...pushy salesmen but they do provide timely withdrawals which is all that matters

Review Moderation Team Note: 4 Star rating removed.

This review came from the same location as the review claiming to be from "Sidley Austin, USA" on 2016-01-19. This location was used by an Interactive Option employee to pretend to be a happy client in the FPA's forums.

Per FPA policy, the rating on this review has been set to Zero stars.

If this is the level of honesty displayed by employees of Interactive Option, we wonder how honest they will be with client money.

David, how many forums will you spam, and how many fake reviews will you leave at the FPA? Hasn't Interactive Option fired you yet?

I had a pretty good experience trading with Interactive Option. True, the withdrawals aren't always on time and yes, the salespeople are pushy, but their financial advisers helped me place some really profitable trades and the pay-outs come eventually.

First contacted me and said if I signed up with them they had a highly profitable automated trading robot that they would configure on the account to do auto trading for me. After I made the initial deposit, a broker from the company called me and said that I did not want a trading robot. When I insisted I wanted the robot because that is why I signed up for the account, they eventually told me that someone else would call me up and setup the autotrading software. Someone else did call, but never did setup the software and tried to talk me out of it.

Later a mats blom tried to talk me into trading with them instead. After several calls, he told me there was a real good trade that day, and asked me to deposit an additonal €2000 so he could show me how good he was. He told me to put the entire amount up on a single trade. I did as he said, the trade lost.

After I made a complaint about this, another broker called me from interactive options, among other things he told me he was in the recovery department, and wanted me to invest €10,000 for a managed account. He told me he had also got my €2000 back and that he would complain for me about Max Blom's conduct (the €2000 did show up back in my trading account). We did discuss the managed account, but I had to go to work to handle a situation that came up, but we agreed he would call me later that day to discuss the possibility of having a managed account with him.

On my way to work, there was a complaint that the hotel could not process a room booking that was to be executed that day. I logged into the company bank account for the credit card, and turned out interactive had take 3 card withdrawls for €250, €500, and €1000, and drained the account. I also later got an email from the broker who was supposed to call me later that day that they could not withdrawl €10000 from my account!!!!!! He acted like we had reached some kind of agreement and wondering how I was going to get him the rest of the money!!

I made a complaint and assured them that I did not authorize any withdrawls from my card. There was no agreement even reached about a managed account. Not to mention making a deposit or how we would send the money.

Contacted interactive options on several occasions, and got all kinds of excuses, the core of it is that up till now, they still havn't issued a return of the money even. They have make up very many excuses, and one person even called me up and told me that he had listened to the recorded calls and concluded that I had told them to withdrawl the money. I told him, I had all calls recorded and that I never said such a thing. I have told them on several occasions when they use that excuse that it would not matter either way because it is still my money and can withdraw it as I will without excuse.

They have also tried to call me up and get me to place trades with the majority of the balance which I will not do.

They still refuse to issue a withdrawlt and are comming up with man lame excuses. All calls have been recorded and I have transcripts of some of the chats with their support.

I am new to the site and I'm not sure I am posting in the right place, Forex peace army, please help and advise.

Disappearing funds, unauthorized trades, RISK FREE trades (which are not RISK FREE need turnover of 25 to 40x the risk free amount). Withdrawals get canceled. And they will make your balance close to zero before your withdrawal gets processed.

Dear Sir/madam, I made withdrawal request on 17th of $349, but after that on 18th I saw 2 big amount trades in my account which was gone in loss, That was of 170 and 175. When i asked in chat support about those 2 trades and many more trades in my account they said to me that it can not be accessed by any others. Now they are not returning my amount.

Has anyone had any dealing with a Trader calling himself Tomas Senna Chief Trader?, don't deal with him as he scammed me out of
over $12000 USD, promising that he would trade for me in a joint account with his own money and forward the profits to me when I sent him amounts between $2500 and $5000 USD. In December he told me he was sending me $55000 USD. It is now the 20th of April 2015 and no money has been sent. I have contacted him numerous times, as well as contacting the company but he has only offered excuses and now refuses to answer any of my messages. The company has not responded to my multiple complaints regarding this matter. I know I will never see that money again. Just another hard lesson in life. I should also say that he deposited $16000 USD into my trading account, telling me that it wasn't a bonus, but guess what?, the company says it is .
He kept telling me that he would fix it, but now since the company has changed its bonus policy, I have to trade over 1 million dollars before I can withdraw any funds. Stay away from Interactive Option!!!

Hi, I filled in this box section 2 x weeks ago in relation to the above InteractiveOption Binary Brokers & you sent me an acknowledgement email back saying someone will respond to me in 3 days well until today I have not heard anything, just to refresh your memory about my issue with these Fraudulent Thieves since early April this year, I have been requesting the return of MY MONEY $500 AUD ( NOT TRADED ) Deposit it is now late August & still no RESPONSE from Interactive Thieves, I now think that these Rogues are not concerned in the least bit about YOU & the Traders Court & that they will continue to commit Fraud & Steal peoples money hiding behind their B.S. claim Trusted EU Regulated Brokers, they also know that they are half a World away from myself & that I cannot get to them Physically because I wish that I could get to them & do Physical HARM to these criminals who need to be STOPPED, well I do not Know if you can or will be trying to help me thru the Traders Court as I have all the necessary documents & copies of Phone calls & emails that I have corresponded to these THIEVES & FRAUDULENT OPERATORS, I Know that this InteractiveOption Mob is a FRONT & the PROOF I have is the FACT that the money I deposited with them was MY MONEY not traded money so imagine if I was asking for a Withdrawal from a Trading account I think that they would only pay withdrawals to small percentage of people who are close bye to them & know that certain people can get to them etc, Regards S.Shaw

Never ever accept their bonus otherwise you won't be able to get your money back. They tricked me by almost forcing me to accept their bonus and didn't refund my deposit of $250 only $58 that was left after the Manager lost most of it by trading for me as he promissed and later stopped and didn't want to talk to me. I thought he lost most of his bonus but no, they kept their bonus and gave me only $58 after complaining to the general Manager. They didn't want to refund any money as I didn't have enough volume so they wanted me to continue trading but I told them from the beginning that I don't have time to trade therefore I wanted to do auto-trading with signal provider I subscribed with. So the manager offered to trade for me but later stopped and didn't want to talk to me. They are only after your money and don't care about clients. Avoid them, I am warning you. Be safe and prosperous.

My story started last week and a friend of mine talking about binary options and a subscription service - which immediately got me thinking scam and/or bound to fail - so I thought I’d investigate.

Along with the subscription service which I didn’t pay any money for came a $100 bonus after signing up with one of their recommended brokers - Interactive Option.

As soon as I had filled out the registration form on the Interactive Option website my mobile rang, but I didn’t answer as I didn’t recognise the number. My phone kept ringing. I received an email from Bruce Harper saying he was trying to get hold of me to confirm my account - fine I thought and the next time the phone rang I answered,

“Hey, this is Bruce, yada yada yada, have you traded before?”

“Yes,” I replied, “forex, spread betting, covered warrants, sports trading, scalping , etc.”

“More trite rubbish ... if you deposit $500 we can set you up with a broker right away,” explained Brucie.

“Nah, mate, I want the $100 sign-up bonus advertised on your website,” expecting a polite and courteous reply.

“What do you think, we simply give away $100?” A frustrated Brucie retorted!

“It says on your website there’s a $100 no deposit sign-up bonus,” rotters, I thought.

“blah, blah, blah, waffle, waffle, waffle,” Brucie replied, giving me time to realise what an arrogant so and so Brucie is.

“Tell you what, I will put you through to the department who give away the free $100,” with that Brucie put the phone down on me! Guffaw!!! What a scamming, scammy scammer I thought!

Today, I received a belated email from Brucie as when I answered his first email I asked him to tell me the phone number he was calling from so I would know who it was. I responded with “TWAT!!”

Lo and behold, a couple of hours later I received a phone call from Bruce Almighty - this time, however, I decided to answer the call and not say anything, Brucie didn’t like that tactic!!

“Hello, hello ... hello ... I can hear you breathing. I know you are there.” What a tool, I thought - Brucie hung up!

Moments later, Brucie called back.

“I can hear you,” I started laughing at this point, although I still didn’t say a word, “I can hear you, I know you are there. If you don’t talk to me I am going to call you ten times per day and give your phone number out to friends of mine,” what a prize twat!!

So, moral of the story is stay the fack away from Bruce Harper and Interactive Option.

Good luck!

Initially I contacted them because after logging in to a site that offered a service called “BinaryMatrixPro”, and after I logged in “Interactive Option” and made deposit, I received an email from “BinaryMatrixPro”... This was a proof that the two sites are from the same owner, or working together.

The link sent by “BinaryMatrixPro” to download or get into a website account, was not opening... So I sent questions to support of “Interactive Option” to understand why, and to solve the problem. There was no return.

Later, I got in touch again with “Interactive Option”, to try a different contact ... unsuccessfully.

Ok, I had already made the minimum deposit of $250 in “Interactive Option”, and later, even with suspicious that something was wrong, I did the transactions anyway...

The account of the deposit:
purchase - Jordon Road 13 / F Unit 1305 Yaumatei 8 44-203-468-07 HKGHKG 00000 ( USD 250.00 @ 2.2328 )

Later, I decided to make a withdrawal, but as soon as I started the process, the site did not give any warning after withdrawal request. Only after I entered the history page I saw 5 attempts, and all were as status pending.

9 days have passed, and as described there in the “Interactive Option”, the maximum days for withdrawals are seven days... And what is the situation for the transfer? They did not send any email, and there, the same status: pending.
After I saw that I really will not have my money back, my transactions were just to pass the time and maybe get some response.
They made me lose my money.

If the “Interactive Option” was not SCAM, now is more than clear that it is.

INTERACTIVE OPTION THE WORST !!!!!!! I beg you all in the name of God, dont ever trade with Interactive Option. They are worse than the devil.. They wont give me my $7000, i worked hard to earn that amount trading almost 24hours, i asked for withdrawal, they begin stupid stories.. They claim they are regulated by cysec.. Amy Parker one of the top people in interactive option, was with iOption that went bankrupt before, she knows all about this crime they are committing.. She ran with people’s money @ iOption.. If you have money there, better take out your funds, they wont even give you. and if you know anyone that wants to deposit with this thief broker, advise them not to ever.. Because you will be trading for this company and not yourself.. you will make money and they wont give you. Devil is nicer than this company, thats how bad they are
