Investment Scam
The online platform was not a real trading platform, but you wouldn't know because they designed it professionally. Their facebook page has many likes, all a set up because I am very sure that the likes are all set up by their own employees. The brokers use fake names. They use VOIP numbers and you will not be able to trace where they are calling from even though they use fake call locations like London and Switzerland. They try to gain your trust and make profit. They will use complicated money making methods and may eventually swallow your money if you give them authority to manage your account. After you deposit more money, they will ask you for more money. They will ask you whether you want to test their system for withdrawal to gain your trust. The realisation dawned when I wanted to book all my profits and withdraw all my profits and principle amount and I am met with excuses upon excuses. They will not give you back your money. But managed to claim back much through a credit card chargeback. If I had teletransfer the money through a bank instead, all would have been lost.

After I stopped trading with them, they have been harrassing me weekly with VOIP calls from their related scam brokerage and finance firms.

Lesson learnt. Beware:
1) do not teletransfer to strangers
2) do not trade with brokers not authorised by the government
3) do not trade with people you haven't met and does not have physical presence in your country
