Dear Chinnakaruppan,

Your withdrawal has been processed on the 14th of November already. Please note that it takes 24 working hours to process a withdraw request.

We have a major time difference with India and our backoffice desk operates on GMT +2 office hours.

You have visited live chat on numerous occasions asking when your withdraw will be processed and you have been informed of the exact same answer as above.

Please be kind enough to follow up publicly here that your withdraw has been well received.

Thank you,

Chris A. Zacharia

Dear Amir,

Our welcome bonus which is posted online here → http://www.xemarkets.com/bonus clearly notes that any bonuses granted will be Nullified upon withdrawal.

Its is very unfair to leave a review which does not reflect reality.

Thank you,

When i want to withdraw , the broker take all their credit. Not fair& terrible ..they never mention it.

Don't trading commodities or indices using this broker, if u trade when contract finish they will close immediately with huge spread, u will lose such huge margin.

Dear Mr. Mohamed,

I have addressed your case in regards to validation with the Head of Backoffice and it will be resolved. The reason backoffice has not accepted the document when submitted the second time is cause the document was clearly blur; however the issue will be resolved immediately.

In regards to your review:

You are using the word “SCAM”. I consider this word harsh and unfair.

There is NO and I repeat NO chance XEMarkets would refuse any clients withdrawal if all KYC and validation procedures are met.

The above is a simple validation issue and cannot lie under the boundaries of the word SCAM.

Thank you,

Dear Chris,

Although I have no troubles with my account with trading-point's account No. 26077. my problems starts when I begin to open a new account with XEMARKETS.(ID No. 49805)

XEMARKETS is refusing to approve my account in order to enable me to withdraw from it. I provide them with the following documents:

1- Personal ID
2- Bank Statment (from account of which I made my first deposit)

firstly they argue that my "Proof of Residency is different from the one you have registered on our system".

I explain to them why my residency looks different which is resulted from I do not own my home I am living in a rent home or either with my family but I proved that I am Egyptian Person and living in Egypt.

Moreover, my TP account was approved by these documents

Furthermore, I provide to them that I am the holder of bank account from which the first deposit was received which is more crucial than my place of residency.

I asked for solution for my case as I can not provide them except with bank statement as proof of my residency

but after waiting 5 days I received answer that " the name on the document looks added ".

Now chris could you please justify for me this answer XEMARKETS did not try to read my e-mail or problem to find solution as much as it tried to make an obstacles before me

now If I will provide any document they will easy refuse it as because the data looks to be added.

chris just compare between documents on my TP account no. 26077 and my XEMARKETS account documents 49805. the first is activated and the second is not. same documents form the same person and your company received my deposit in both acounts from the same visa account.

When I started to introduce XEMARKETS to my friends the outcome that they refuse it because many of them faced troubles with it they wish not to resume trading with you. Now I think that their opinion become true

For FX Peace Army reader, my review for XEMARKETS is the following:

I do not recommend XEMARKETS for you not because it is a scam but because it has the worst Back-office. you will find the best spread rates their customers services appears professional and nice but all of these sound nothing compared to their back office who will look for how to find obstacles to refuse your withdrawal requests.

finally chris, could you imagine that my account manager disappeared during my problem with back office. he did not try even to send me an e-mail to know the problem even I CC him in all my correspondences with back-office team

My rate is bad and now I am dealing with the account as DEMO not real also I will not introduce XEMARKETS anymore to my colleagues.
