They are not giving my refund back ( my personal deposit)

Service use: Live Length of use: over 1 Year
They block my and not giving my refund back. I suddenly got email from octafx they said unverified my account and ask for to provide bank statement and selfies. I provided all what they asked but instead of verifying they block my account. I mentioning the email which I received from octafx
"Service denied in accordance with the p. 3.10 of the Customer Agreement

Customer Agreement p. 3.10 declares the following:

"3.10. The Company reserves the right, at its discretion, at any time to refuse to provide the Services to the Client and the Client agrees that the Company will have no obligation to inform the Client of the reasons."

It means that the Company takes its right to discontinue services provided to you. The access to your Personal Area at our website will be blocked and won't be restored.

We will refund your remaining funds as soon as possible rest assured"

In end they mentioned my refund is in process but now it is more than 14 days and I still haven't received refund or any response.

Octafx embazzled my funds 9450$ and blocked my account

Service use: Live Length of use: 6-12 Months
I've been trading with octafx recently. My experience says if you keep loosing they won't have a problem but by mistake if you made any profit they will start invesgation of your account. I had 9450$ in my account most of which was profit from my reades. When i tried to withdraw they unverified my account due to reason suspesious activity. Closing profitable trade is a suspicious activity for them. They asked me for bank statement and selfie holding id. I provided documents instead of verifying my account they blocked my account saying according to para 3.10 company reserve the right to discontinue service for you. Also said there will be no refund as your withdrawal exceed your deposit.
When a client is making money and they do this, it shows their true face and hypocrisy. I've opened a thread I don't know will get my funds back or not but for others and me it is a lesson. Just stay away from this broker. octafx.com is the name not octafx.eu

Withdrawal issues solved

Service use: Live Length of use: over 1 Year
Withdrawal issue is cleared now and I have received my money. Obviously it was really a technical problem they had with their payment provider. I am glad the problem is solved because otherwise the services of Octafx are really good.

Jul 25, 2022 - 2 Stars I used to be very happy with the services of Octafx, but unfortunately suddenly it changed. My withdrawals do not get processed anymore, they get declined with fishy reasons (not enough funds - but then they say that was a mistake and I should please make a new withdrawal). Then I have to wait another 3 days and the new withdrawal gets declined as I should use another method for withdrawal - which I have never used for a deposit. Then they are saying they are having technical issues and I should please be patient.

This has been going on for two weeks now, I wanted not to rush to false conclusions and give it some time, but now I do not trust them anymore - two weeks is just too long.

Aug 26, 2021 - 2 Stars I was always very happy with the services that Octafx offers, but suddenly the withdrawals are not processed anymore. I get the same excuses every day, but I still haven't seen any of my money. I do hope this is just a technical issue as they repeat to say, but I don't believe it anymore. How can this take so long?

Dear Naveed,

We're very sorry you're undergoing difficulties withdrawing your funds.

Unfortunately, we couldn't identify you on our system and verify your complaint since you didn't share your OctaFX account information. That said, we encourage you to get in touch with us via one of our social media accounts and provide this information. Our team is always here to help, and they would be happy to look into this for you.

In the meantime, we wish to note that verification is a security measure that follows our AML policies, and our customers must confirm their identity and get verified before placing a withdrawal request.

We're looking forward to hearing from you anytime soon.

Kind regards,
OctaFX Rep.

Dear Xian0971,

We're sorry that your trading expectations weren't met and you're dissatisfied with our services.

After reviewing your case, we've found that you had only one XAUUSD order on July 8, and it was closed manually, not by a stop-out. We regret that the closing price didn't match the one you had in mind. However, we would like to remind you that each broker has a selected pool of liquidity providers, and the quotes do not always match tick by tick. That's why you may see such differences between some candles and charts in general of particular brokers.

Needless to say that as an ECN Forex broker, we can't influence the prices you see in the trading platform as we apply market execution; none of your orders is internalized but sent to our liquidity providers to be executed at their end. The chart shows the best bid and ask prices quoted from multiple liquidity providers, and different brokers use various liquidity providers that may provide their own pools of liquidity.

That said, we'd encourage you to get in touch with our Customer Support team at support@octafx.com and share more information about the orders in question.

Our team is always here for you, and they will be happy to look into this for you and address your concerns.

Kind regards,
OctaFX Rep.
