BMFN Victims' Money showing up in Vermont

Service use: Other

Length of use: over 1 Year

it looks like BMFN's Owner is crazy to buy anything and everything,

it's also the time to pay what he collects (steal) from the whole world, please read the article above

hope it can help anyone has an issue to get back his money,

Nov 29, 2020 - 1 Star BMFN is over 10+ years in the market now, and know one knew from where it came or regulated anywhere and why they hiding now?

as they run away from China, Saudi Arabia and India, now they running from UAE, the company owner fail to handle the client withdrawals and he close the office door with a a message says "BMFN is closed and if you have an issue send to gmail " which is so funny, but a lot of people lost millions,

a lot of police cases opened in UAE but BMFN owner (PB) still lucky as clients did not went and open one public case, but they will. is blocked is UAE, and also most of the BMFN's baby companies like,,, and which already flagged by SCA in UAE,

actually they will never stop, and they going to continue in UAE with a new name,

as every day am getting a calls from BMFN's victims i want forexpeacearmy support to allow all of this people to put them stories fairly here, i believe this website is one of the highest voices,

below is just 3 accounts with more than half million, and they can reply and clear them side if they proceed with withdrawal , 6 months playing and tiring to reduce the amount until they start to open trades from them side to finish it, same time BMFN's employs trying to fix the client issue and take commission from him just to fix his issue or else they will not help the guy take HIS MONEY!!, who can believe this!!!



hope people with the same issue now and i know they are a lot, to put them reviews asap, as by few days BMFN is running from UAE,

Swissfx and BMFN scammed me

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I originally started with swissfxprime everything was OK . After a while , swissfxprime changed the name to swissfs . I havent contacted them from December 2020 and was carrying my trades on MT4 until I notices that server has been changed without a notification . Tried to contact Swissfs but no luck whatsoever . Tried to log into my cabinet but it keeps rejecting my account and a message appears that is not available . It seems the swissfs works for bmfn and forwarded all client accounts to them . Tried to find a contact for bmfn in Dubai but again no luck . There is also no website for bmfn .

Good FX Broker (they pay my salary)

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

This is my broker partner, they got amazing platform like MAM (Multi Account Manager) so I can managed all my clients using MAM. Also I had an 6000 USD PAMM managed account and 3 days after the withdrawal request I have received the money. From this point of view everything is OK.

I am using BMFN trading Platform since past 3 Years. They offers competitive spreads with no holding cost. They don't offer Agro commodities which is a negative thing but all the major instruments are available to trade.

Hello, I am a Chinese citizen and urgently need your help
In 2017, I traded on the BMFN foreign exchange trading platform.In 2018, BMFN exited the Chinese market.
But so far neither my friends nor I have been able to withdraw funds, I have communicated with them many times via email and always answer "Leader not audited".
I hope the regulator can help me and my friends. Thank you very much. Waiting for your message.

my style - News Trading
all orders were opened on the news, when economists were wrong in the forecasts
For 6 months profit was more than 4 thousand dollars

in the end I received an email

"After conducting a thorough review of your trading activity it has been discovered that you have systematically traded off market pricing resulting in ill-gotten trading gains. Whether such trading was the result of system errors, malfunctions, or delays, or whether through the usage of scripts, codes, software or simply manual trading of known off-market pricing feeds during increased volatility at BMFN is irrelevant."

after that the account was closed, and the money was stolen

How can there be a non-market price in the market execution of orders? nonsense!

"Do you have a dealing desk?
No, all orders are executed fully automatically by the trading server system without any human intervention.

Model of the execution?
BMFN offers market execution of the orders to make the trading more comfortable. The price is provided directly from the market. We focus and provide the best trading environment for our clients."

Buenos Aires, Argentina,
Dec 25, 2013,

On November 8th, I had made a profit of between 7k and 9k, just like I had other times before, but minutes after the American news of 2:30 PM, some pending orders of BUY STOP that my EA set near the market price for the GBP USD and AUD USD opened at 10,000 pips of distance in a 5-digit platform. For the Pound, an order was opened at 1.70000 when the market was barely at 1.60000. For the AUD USD, orders were opened at 1.0400 when the market price was around 0.94000.

This situation resulted in my accounts completely breaking down.
I looked at other accounts at the broker; standard and ECN, and that price does not appear in other platforms. This only happened with my accounts and that price did not appear in any other broker at that hour. Moreover, at the time this happened, the price was going down and the system drove the candlesticks up.

I was informed that the liquidity provider sent that price and my EA accepted it. Logically, I can put up a pending order at a future price so high that the order can remain months or years without executing itself. But it is clear by the logs that the prices that my EA solicited in the pending orders were very near the market price at that moment.

I have screen prints, logs, etc. that demonstrate the irregularity of this whole operation. I was told by Bernardo Martinez, the company’s representative for Latin America, that the liquidity provider didn’t want to give back the 100% of the funds lost by this “technical error”, but they offered 50% of the funds, adducing that it was my EA ’s fault for accepting the price.

A few days later, I was offered a closing deal of half the funds lost, where they stated again the it was my EA ’s responsibility. I was under a lot of pressure thinking that I might lose all my capital and they told me that if they tried to negotiate a 100% refund with the liquidity provider, they might even give up the first offer altogether. So obviously, I signed and settled for half the funds, at least momentarily.

All the process lasted eight days, where I lived moments of much anguish and frustration, considering the possibility of losing all my savings. This was obviously a well-thought strategy of the broker because from the beginning, they suggested the idea of giving back only a part of the money. It was easy for them to press me into signing that ridiculous agreement because I was scared of losing everything.

An EA cannot tamper with the market price. That is downright impossible.
After signing this ridiculous agreement, which I can show at request, and getting back half my capital, I tried to contact the broker three times, trying to negotiate a better offer to settle the whole thing.

At this point, I would’ve been happy if they gave me back the initial capital invested. They answered that having signed that agreement, I accepted their terms, and that I shouldn’t involve the liquidity provider. They said they definitely wouldn’t give back more than they had, and that giving back half the funds was already very generous of them. They also said that they are not responsible for the market price, but in this case, the price was intentionally tampered with. If a broker states that the market price is not their responsibility, then the client is totally unprotected since they could modify the price and then say they are not liable for anything.

I warned the broker that I would inform all the regulation entities and forums of this flagrant scam, and they said I should stop the threats and that if I made bad publicity, they would sue me. They also prohibited me from showing the document I signed under pressure because they know it was a maneuver aimed simply at taking away my money.

It is important to highlight that the FSA regulation does not reach them as brokers because they are listed as a pay processor. This is another trick they use in order to steal money from investors and remain free of charges.

I will accept my responsibility if the broker can prove that my EA produced that price and took it in spite of the fact that the pending orders differed from that price. I have all the evidence to show that that is impossible. But the broker has nothing to prove what they put forward; only words and a document they made me sign under pressure in order to make me responsible for something that is implausible and in order to silence me.

Using only common sense, if what they say was true and my EA had provoked this error in the account, why the broker should give me back half the amount lost? Out of generosity? This is business, and I don’t know one broker in history that has taken responsibility for their clients’ errors. I am not talking cents here: my capital was of USD 470.000, and they stole half of it in one minute. Eight days later, they gave me back $235.000. There are two options: either I thank them for the money they gave me as a present or this is a blatant fraud.

I leave this question for the investors.

I'm writing with reference of the verdict against BMFN. I have read the case very carefully (Case# 2012-041 | ibham1 vs ). In my opinion, it is really unfair to post such Scams on BMFN. It is very well known that it is illegal systematically traded delayed off market pricing. So please remove this verdict as Mr ibham1 is the one who ABUSED the system.

Review Moderation Team Note: BMNF was given every chance to respond to the question of why they removed 18 months worth of trades when their client attempted to withdraw money. They declined to make a public response to defend themselves.

The FPA wonders why a broker would only notice that a client violated rules for a year and a half when the time came to withdraw money. If a client's trades violate some rule, a broker needs to warn the client in a timely fashion.

If BMNF wants this Guilty vote to be resolved, they need to contact their client.

I Started last January to look for good broker and money manger, then I've decided to invest 10k $ with BMFN through MM that have certification from them. He made 70 % profit in first month then I added to the account another 10K, then he made a profit of about 40% in the month after. Then one day I was checking to find that many trades was opened and closed at late night and in a matter of 10 minutes my account was down from 38K to 200$ !!!!!

The MM told me that he was hacked and lost money in many other accounts including his own and he has followed the IP provided from the broker by the help of ISP to internet cafe, the broker told that investigation shows the access was from IP in the same city of MM. I can see that total MM commission was about 6K and the broker has blocked it waiting for approval from me that i sorted the issue with the MM or approval from him to let me take the commission. When I asked the MM for the approval he stopped responding to me.

I think you will say that this MM scam however I am not sure since he could made this from the shared profit deal and would profit every month and if someone can make 70 % in month and share profit with me why he would do that !!

I requested the broker to provide me with IP details of the trades but they responded that this is illegal. Also they were unable to get response from MM to discuss the issue.

Finally, I asked them to release the blocked commission to me but they refused an told me that they cant help me with anything since i signed the POA and they didn't find any prove of fraud and I should had monitored my account however they know this happened in only 10 minutes using some sort of script !!!! they provide me with revoke form and they are pushing me to close the account !

Please advice I am very disappointed..

Issue escalated to Traders Court Ibham1 vs. | GUILTY
I opened an account with BMFN in August 2010. I successfully managed to withdraw $6,000 in November 2010 and a further $9,000 in May 2011. However, when I attempted to withdraw a $6,000 in January 2012 I received an email stating my account has been “deactivated and closed due to system abuse.”

The email highlighted a section from their terms and conditions stating BMFN had the right to cancel all profits due to inaccurate pricing. I contacted them on many occasions demanding proof as I could not believe every single trade I placed over an 18 month period was affected by constant BMFN system failure.

My account equity was over $20,000 when my account was deactivated. I have experienced this previously with another broker, if the client consistently makes money, the broker will use some generic clause in the terms and conditions to deny the trader hisher profits – the broker will also refuse to provide the trader with evidence as to why the trades were cancelled.

I shall be asking for FPA’s assistance to help me retrieve my money. I will also be making official complaints to the relevant regulatory bodies.

This broker is very bad for scalpers. They give frequent requotes and when I sent them screen shots of the requotes they say the market was volatile when you can clearly see on the screen shots that the candle formation show barely any volatility. Beware of their bonus schemes there are all sorts of attachments with the fine print.,

This is my broker Partner, Honest opinion....They got amazing platform like MAM ( Multi Account Manager ) so I can managed all my clients using MAM, support is excellent, spread reasonable and fast execution.
Mar 31, 2010,

The price seems too volatile, its not common. If you scalper, avoid this brokers. While I got profit with other 3 brokers, but got loss with this brokers.
Uncommon volatile price movement, requoting are happen many times. Scalpers...., becareful with this brokers.
