Scam company. Run away from Adrian!!!

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Don't trust legacyfx. This is a scam company. They will entice you in the beginning with good signals and support. They will make you trust them and then they start giving you bad trades to blow up your account. After one month of successful trades, they blew up my account with over $2000.
Stay away from these scammers

Followup to my earlier post (2)

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

After my account showed 5k deducted on 15.1.2020, funds still not received at my bank. They said wired on 15.1.2020 and takes up to 10 days (see my other post). I first requested to withdraw my funds on 23.12.2019.

They stopped replying to my emails.

I make another request for the balance of funds in my account today.

Wonder what excuses or will they even answer me.

Jan 23, 2020 - 1 Star After more runabout with their purported Support, Compliance and Finance Departments (but appears to be only 1 guy, Ismail wearing different hates) they finally said that my withdrawal was processed on 15.1.2020 by international wire transfer.

I enquired yesterday and they replied that "It may take between 5 to 10 business days for it to reflect back into your bank account, depending on your bank's regulations and your country's restrictions."

What c***, are were living in the stone age for funds transfer to take 5 to 10 business days?

Today 23.1.2020 still no funds received.

Lewis Borriso, the guy who pressured me to open the account has disappeared from the scene. Steven Hanna my Senior Account Manager had been silent. They use this number +41315087455 and Whatsapp +44 7404983824.

Oh... they claim they "partner" investing.com

FPA, please take the necessary action to protect innocent investors from this fraudulent scam shop.

Jan 14, 2020 - 1 Star Promises of great service with "personal financial advisor" to "help you make money". Once you opened account and deposit funds they asked to increase deposit for better service - personal financial advisor and small spreads. I didn't buy the pitch but unfortunately deposited US$5k.

26 Dec 2019: I requested to withdraw my funds. NO RESPOND/CONFIRMATION.
27 Dec 2019: I emailed support to enquire. Reply: "Your request (XXXX) has been received and will be reviewed by our Compliance & Support Department. Please note, all requests are handled in the order they are received and will be responded to within 1 to 3 business days."
31 Dec 2019: Received email from Support that "you didn't submit a withdrawal request from the site." I went to website and resubmitted. CONFIRMED REQUEST RECEIVED.
6 Jan 2019: Emailed Support to enquire status.
9 Jan 2019: Received email from Compliance that "Your withdrawal request has been APPROVED and must be processed using an alternative payment method. In
order to process your request, please provide the information as outlined below." I provided details immediately.
Today 14 Jan 2019: Received email from Compliance that insufficient details for funds transfer and to provide more. I sent my bank template details again for receiving funds. Let's see what new excuses they come up with.

I will name all their people in the next post, if necessary.

Oh... MT5 platform, Spreads were EURUSD-1.8pips, GBPUSD-2 pips, Gold- $0.67, US30-4.90 pips, US500- 1.60 pips

This is not a broker, this is a nightmare. I can't say they are full scam since they partially withdrew my funds, but... I opened an account near 1 month ago. I got a call every day from they with a offer to trade by their signals. Every time I refused and finally they stopped calling. At the same time they stopped to answer me by email. The point is that I planned to trade with EA, but noticed in MT logs that such trading is disabled by their server. I tried to contacted them many times by different emails but no one replied to me. Finally I sent a withdrawal request. No any actions from the company for 1 week. After they processed this but deduct 50 USD for that...

Terrible started well but they made me blow whole account

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Opened and account with minimum $250, was given signals by Gabby. Started well but constantly wanted to deposit more to trade oil and indexes.
I added up to $2000 increased account to $3000 by trading. then again wanted more. I did not have any more used all of my spare cash. Then they started taking bigger risks, getting me to trade bigger and lost most of the account in 2 days.
I am now in serious debt and do not know what to do.

Stay away from these people.
I have all of the whatsapp messages including my comments about risk, i have all notes they gave me about trades.

DO NOT go for this company

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Please do not go for this company. First they enticed me in by telling me to put £200 in. I got assigned to a manager who at first was nice. Sweet talking and making it seem like his been doing this for a long long time. He told me To put in more money To secure my invest. I put in a further £1800. He told
Me keep buying and selling on the same trade. This is because they make money on the spread. He told me to invest in trades with very very high spreads so it took some time for me to get even. Never mind making money. I have lost all my trust in these forex companies. This was my first time trading. Never again. I have made a request to withdraw my money. The manager is trying his best for me not to do this but I told him. I don’t trust him or his company.

Totally Fraudulent

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Like all the other comments here, I was duped. In the beginning, a guy named Jake informed me that he would have VIP signs, which didn't happen. Therefore, this broker has a very high spread and minimum lots of 0.10 in pairs and 1 contract for indices and commodities. Therefore, if you request a withdrawal, they will keep $ 50 from you, at the end. Absurd. The FCA should close this broker.

Worst broker to date. Scammers

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

The company starts off with friendly phone calls and professional advice from “professionals”. I have been hassled with phone calls as early as 7:20am with calls throughout the day to as many as 11 calls in a single day. I opened my account and did my own thing, performing my own trades and making money, I was callled and told that I’m having very good luck and that it would run out soon I should follow them. I was told in an asking way to deposit more money so I could “ make more money “ Because what I was doing wasn’t enough (started with £200, after day one had £300) every S.I.N.G.L.E time I requested a withdrawal I get an immediate phone call asking why and they suggest I don’t. These people do not care about you, only your money. I have no idea how they are “regulated” but stay clear.
