November 2012: There are now 3 guilty verdicts against this company in the FPA Traders Court. The FPA recommends against dealing with this company.
The FPA now considers UFX Markets to be a scam. This company is hereby blacklisted by the Forex Peace Army. We recommend against opening accounts there. If you have an account there, we recommend withdrawing all of your funds immediately.
WARNING 2: UFX Bank claimed that they hired a black hat SEO company to do search engine optimization. They blamed that company for leaving the fake reviews. The FPA wonders what sort of broker would hire an organization like that and then allow a black hat organization to have direct access company servers. The FPA wonders just how safe client data would be under those circumstances.

Holding Earnings For Ransom
Feb 3, 2022 - 1 Star My “account” has a $500k balance and UFX is not allowing a withdraw without a $50k payment upfront. Can’t call them, all you can do is text. I’m
Done doing that. They are a scam. Lost a lot of money.
UFX ignored the judgement by cyprus FCA
It has been few weeks and I haven’t heard anything from UFX. What is the best thing to in force this judgement?
Any help would be appreciated.
Dec 4, 2020 - 1 Star I first encountered this company in November 2019 on tweeter, then I started to receive calls from Ben, first he said if I invest $450 I will make money. That is how I started and he allocated a so called account manager called James. James started to call me at 7am in the morning everyday, saying I should invest more I said I don’t have money, but he said I should borrow as all investors borrow to invest and if I invest $10K I will make $5-6K a month. I borrowed and everything went well and my account was nearly $30K, but suddenly one day all wiped out.
After the first loss he started to call again saying I should invest more as we will recover soon and I thought he was genuine and I put another $10k he was advising me to invest on gold and oil and after a week or so another loss. So in total I lost $20k. In May this year they notified me that they are closing all trading in UK, when I emailed James he didn’t reply and I started to search the company and I found out that they were a scam, not genuine investment.
I complained to their customers support, but they said that my account manager hasn’t done anything wrong and stop answering all my emails.
Sep 16, 2020 - 1 Star I came across this company in November last year on tweeter and I was curious and gave my details. Then I started to receive constant calls by Ben. I was happy to invest £450, however Ben passed me to another so called account manager James. He would call at 7am and telling there is a great opportunity to make money as Briexit is a historical moment for the market and I shouldn’t miss the opportunity.
I told him I don’t have the money to invest, he said all investors borrow money to invest and I should borrow, I would make £5-6K a month and I would be able to pay the money back. I agreed and borrowed. I invested and my account went to £30K profits. However in few days lots Everything. He started calling and said that I should borrow more to recover my losses and we will trade in minimum to take less risks. We opened few trade in gold, but they didn’t move for few days. I asked him to close what we had opened and he said no the price is going to go down and you will make a profit and recover, During the night I lost half of my money and closed it at great lost.
He called again at 7am and he said that why did I closed in lost and now we should try on pound and he made me lose everything. He started calling me again and asking me to borrow more to recover, but at this time I refused to listen to him and I told him I am not in a position to borrow more. In total I lost $20k.
If anyone can help how to sue this company and recover I would appreciate your assistance.
My experience with UFX.com ::updates
I am satisfied with my experience with UFX / reliantco investment Ltd ,UFX.com
Oct 1, 2019 - 1 Star The story started at21 aug 2019. I saw this ad on Facebook,I signed in just to see what it was all about but then did nothing further.then,so many calls from Jad Jabreen,UFX employee who convinced me to open an account on UFX.then Ghinwa Kasem another employee in UFX called and told me not to worry about losing my money in UFX and I told her I know nothing on forex but she told me they will assist me and will assign an account manager named Amir Hassan and he will do everything instead of you to win money.They swore that deals will be done at very low risk.they did not train me at all and did offer to train me .they made me to deposit an initial $6600 USD and Amir did for me some deals which showed profits just to trust them and he did an initial withdrawals for $25 usd to trust them more.
But when I tried to withdraw my money because I read that UFX is a scam they refused and did many call to convince me that this is not true and a senior Employee named Fakher Barakat called me and swore that this is not true and that their competitors are doing this rumors.he convinced me to transfer $60000 to them through the Caj Capital account in commercial bank of Dubai and for 3 days he did a profit of 10 thousand USD $ by doing many deals in one day.then he did a very big and bad deals on oil and NZD/FCH although I told him that it is risky and he assured me and said,don’t worry we are safe.then suddenly my account showed profit loss and he put my account into Hedge . I didn’t even know what that even meant and asked him and he told me that next week you will make $60000usd and just we need to find right exit points blar blast blaa . Now they will stole my money and will need more money .
They now insist on new deposit to steal more money.
They intended to do this hedge to threaten me if I didn’t deposit new money,my account will collapse.
UFX Pedro Pons was very concerned about my sick mother. UFX Pedro Pons se preocupó mucho por mi madre enferma.
The fact is that he wiped out all my savings and a couple of credit cards, with the water around my neck ...
He cheated me out of money and as a person, he used the most vile ways to rob me and of course the consequences that I have today in terms of my economy and my feelings. Of course my case is very similar to those described by the rest of the users but with this creeping detail that illustrates a little more UFX and one of its brokers, Pedro Pons, a very close friend of Marcelo Moscato.
Although I could spend hours stating my opinion about these people for the moment, I leave it there, not without thanking forexpeacearmy for trying to help people who have no other protection and simply act in good faith.
Por dinero se pueden cometer muchas atrocidades, aparte del hecho en si de robar, están los métodos utilizados: llamar con una intensidad (que ni la primera novia), hacerte creer que vas a ganar dinero, ganarse tu simpatia y confianza...y parece ser que a esta gentuza todo le viene bien; incluso saber que te encuentras en un estado de indefensión ya que por aquel entonces me encontraba cuidando a mí madre enfrentándose a sus últimos días en este mundo. Me preguntaba por ella, me contó que el era huérfano de padre y lo mal que lo pasó su madre porque eran muy jóvenes bla bla, bla bla, bla bla....
El caso es que acabó con todos mis ahorros y con un par de créditos de recuerdo, con el agua al cuello...
Me estafó el dinero y como persona, se sirvió de lo más vil para robarme y por supuesto las consecuencias que a día de hoy tengo en cuanto a mi economía y a mis sentimientos.
Por supuesto mi caso es muy parecido a los que describe el resto de usuarios pero con este detalle rastrero que ilustra un poco más a UFX y a uno de sus brokers, Pedro Pons muy amigo por cierto de Marcelo Moscato.
Aunque podría estar horas enunciando mi opinión sobre estas personas de momento lo dejo ahí, no sin dar las gracias a forexpeacearmy por intentar ayudar a personas que no tienen otro tipo de protección y simplemente actúan de buena fe.
Amicable settlement reached with Reliantco Investments Ltd. (UFX), 21/07/20
Jul 21, 2020 - 1 Star I would give UFX negative stars if I could. I was pressured and harassed into depositing in excess of 40,000 GBP over the course of a few years with them - almost half of which was lost by the 1st account manager placing a trade - without my permission - and risking the whole account (they conveniently replaced him after this incident). They would call me at all hours, each time insisting that I needed to trade "right now" or I would miss some "great opportunity". They gave explicit instructions as what to trade and even told me to take out loans and borrow money to keep trading under their "guidance". In the end, all of the money was lost - their "expert advice" and instructions caused all the losses. It turns out that they are not allowed to give instructions or investment advice (and certainly not tell me to take out loans to "finance" investing with them). I filed a formal complaint with them to have them return the money they caused to be lost and got the runaround for months before being told that they "investigated" my complaint. I was told that they "found" that none of their account managers had done anything wrong and that they would not be returning any of my money.
They claimed that they had actually "given" me over 151,050 USD in commissions and bonuses but were never able to provide any evidence. They also somehow claimed that I "came out with very big profits" even though my balance sheet shows a net loss. I replied to every email they sent me with detailed information, correcting their factually incorrect claims. In reply, they just kept claiming that "no wrongdoing" was found. This is despite them having hours and hours of call recordings where their "account managers" can clearly be heard giving me instructions and orders for what to do in direct violation of their own terms and regulation rules.
Stay away from this company and if you have deposited any money with them, withdraw it ASAP!

Nov 18, 2020 - 1 Star UFX - Can you really trust UFX?
Before starting my story, I want to say briefly that such companies and institutions destroy people's money in a month or so in a short time, as it is the first experience of all of you, our stories will definitely be similar and at least we can help each other inspired by these stories.
Initially they make you think that you’re winning then you can see that your money disappears suddenly, they switch you to a professional account.
Their intention is to withdraw as much money as possible from your account into their platform, they work by commission
Please come and Watch my videos on YouTube channel you will see how they manipulate to take money out of you, it’s all recorded there is no lie it’s all true voice of theirs. https://youtu.be/UHpejFJ7qG4 and https://youtu.be/fMCEXcPczR4
My advice to you, please share your story with us, I am establishing a platform on this subject and I will add additional links to the links below, we can all help each other by sharing our stories We would warn other people.
There are many more videos about their misrepresentation and I’ll post many more
Jul 30, 2019 - 1 Star THEY ARE LIAR, THEY SCAMMERS THEY ARE THIEVES as I can not describe them any better
I have been scammed by Reliantco Investments Ltd, they are also called UFX
I was contacted by brokers Mr Izzet Kamer, Mr Levent Demir and Arda Polat who encouraged me to open an account with UFX. The brokers contacted me by telephone and email and encouraged me to invest in various financial trading namely gold, petrol and stock exchange. I was assured by brokers that as long as I do what the brokers ask me to do I shall win and that there will be no losses. The brokers reassured that I will make no loss and a win was guaranteed. In reliance on this representation, I entered into a contract with broker. The representation was an express term of the contract. In fact the representation was false and broker was in breach of the contract in that none of the investments made a return.
As a result of the misrepresentation, I have suffered loss and damage. In the circumstances, and they are liable to me for damages for misrepresentation and breach of contract.
I did not have any knowledge or experience in investments and I did outline this to brokers. The brokers encouraged me to open a professional account and told me to not to worry and to rely on their advice. (you had to have two or a year and half years professional experience and €500000.00 in your account in order to trade professionally in European countries as this is the regulation in European Commission)They opened a professional account in their platform without my consent in order to take more and quickly money from me. Again this is illegal. They also confirmed that they will help and provide all the answers to complete the account and that they will complete the account on my behalf. The brokers have clearly been in breach of their role and provided incorrect and false information in order to complete the professional account.
I can inform you that all the telephone conversations were recorded. As these recordings are crucial evidence in this matter proving that financial advice was given by brokers to me. You give them notice that all the telephone recordings should be preserved as evidence. It is clear from the emails I received from brokers and the telephone conversations that brokers have introduced themselves as a authorised person to give financial advice. I was initially encouraged to make small investments. The brokers first made it look like that I was winning and making money. All the money I won was held in the account brokers opened. Further investment advice was given to me by brokers and I was pushed to make big investments which resulted in losses which was never mentioned by any of brokers.
I realised that they are regulated in another European Economic area (EEA) country and as you are aware in order to regulate certain financial activities the brokers should have been
authorised to carry out the said regulated financial activities. Please confirm with them whether their brokers were authorised to give financial investment advice to amateur investors such as me. As a result of the wrongful advice brokers gave, I suffered a loss totalling in the sum of £48,000.00 In sterling pound. I request full refund of This sum.
I reported them Ombudsman, CySec in Cyprus and found a lawyer ready to take them
To court in Cyprus. As well as I reported them
FSA financial services authority and Police here in London. Police in London said will contact police in Limassol
I’ll also be going to Cyprus next week myself
Regarding Reliantco Investments Limted trading as UFX
Oct 24, 2019 - 1 Star UFX is good at extracting money from you, good at making you think you're winning trades on CFD's, good at building your confidence and trust and encouraging/persuading you to invest larger sums with them, good at getting you into hedging and... just when you're in way over your head comes the coup de grace - that huge loss suffered from an "unprecedented shift" in the gold or oil market and for the life of me on examination post UFX I couldn't find any such unprecedented shift. The advice of UFX at that time was to trade out of it and invest more money - simples. That pattern is seen time and time again in the numerous complaints littered over the internet. And if you are in credit and want to withdraw your funds at any time, the chances are that you won't be able to. Be wise, stay away from UFX.
Notice regarding Reliantco Investments Ltd t/a UFX
