Withdrawal was great and fast

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
I was reading all the reviews and it got me so worried.

I used PayPal to deposit n withdraw, so far it is easy. They did ask me for screenshots for twice, which I have provided before. But as soon as I provide to them again, they process my withdrawal and got it within 1 day.

May be is because my withdrawal is so small like 20 to 30 dollars ... so it is so quick and easy?

I am hoping to make a slightly bigger withdrawal...hope it will be processed as quick ..

If it does not, I will then change my rating.

So far, it is great...

Withdrawing fund is difficult

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
What I'm experiencing right now in connection with my withdrawal is terrible and very appalling
Made a withdrawal of $181 via bitcoin for 7 days now all i get is stories
If they're serious they should fix their withdrawal issues because from every review i have read that's what everyone is complaining about
Prompt payments of withdrawals is one very key hallmark of a good and honest broker

Impossible drawmoney for my account

Length of use: 0-3 Months
I have been trying to take money from my forex account since the 16th of January.

Ask me for a prove of the bank that im the owner of the account i used to make money, which i sent.  They did not reply

I asked for many contacts via chat, email and phone. No one replied.

A company that deals with people's money should show more professionalism. I will take this fight until i get my money back.

BDSwiss should care more about one very important thing today.  REPUTATION.

Good, but could improve.

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
BDSwiss is a good broker but they could improve. Deposits are fast but withdrawals take up to 10 days after contacting support several times. Would come back to broker if they offered CAD base account currency.

Awful experience. Withholding money.

Service use: Live Length of use: over 1 Year
Was told to send 100 pounds to my old card for whatever reason. Withdrew on 30th October and money is still not here. Was provided with ARN tracing number but bank can not find a thing. They told me to contact BDSWISS as it's up to them to trace it. I emailed funding on friday with bank statement but no response.

They take ages to respond to emails and conveniently cannot be contacted by phone. A total joke. If this isnt sorted today I will be cancelling along with my wife and best believe I'll be telling my friends who have recently signed up to cancel as they treat their customers so disgusting.

Legalized Bleeding

Length of use: over 1 Year
This broker offers CFDs on indexes and forex (and other instruments). The desktop trading patform ist browser based and provides very poor fills on market orders. The mobile app is even worse. But the worst thing I experinced are that they won't stop you out of your positions when you receive margin calls. The psoitions will remain live until you received a zero balance. Only then they will stop you out.
I have received a lot of marketing phone calls from them. They do tell you false stories such as they are based in Germany which is not true and they also claim to be not related to BDSwiss. BDS and BDSwiss are different? Well, when I signed up 6 years ago they did call themselves BDSwiss.
I never expected too much from them so I just invested 100 $ at the start.

Account become inactive

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
On a routine profit withdrawal request, I was dismayed to discover the complete erasure of my equity from the MT4 account, subsequently leading to the termination of my account.

Out of nowhere, my account was closed and they confiscated my balance.

Service use: Live Length of use: 3-6 Months
Balances in my 3 different trading accounts have been withdrawn from my BDswiss account. I did not make these withdrawals and I asked BDSwiss for proof of payment but they are not sending it to me.
My total balance of $5,772.75 disappeared in an instant.
I ask BDSwiss to send proof that these payments were transferred to my wallet.

BDSwiss suddenly decided to close my account. That's why they showed it :
Dear Client,
This is to notify you that the Company has decided to terminate the business relationship with
you with immediate effect pursuant to Clause 8.18 of the Client Terms and Conditions (T&C) and in
particular as per Clause 8.18.1.
Yours faithfully,

In terms and conditions, there is no article 8.18.1.
and 8.18. article is : 8.18. Insolvency. If a Company, whose Underlying Asset forms the FX and CFD goes into insolvency or is otherwise
dissolved, we shall close any such of your open Transactions in FX and CFD of that Underlying Asset. The closing date
shall be the date of insolvency.
Fix this situation. Give my money back.

They take your money but won't give it back

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
I was initially introduced to BDswiss to get a free signal service. I didn't use the specific link provided by the signal service to sign up for an account and BDswiss said they can't change my account once I created it. This defeated the purpose of having the account so I requested my money to be refunded. They said no we can't give you your money back until you validate your account and provide ID and proof of residence. This is ridiculous since they didn't require it to take my money. I then provided my ID and proof of residence and they emailed me back saying they don't approve of my address even though it is identical on all my ID's. I live on a farm so I don't have a normal residential address. The question is why does my address matter? I jumped through the ridiculous hoops to get my money back and then they come up with another excuse not to give it back.
