It says on their website:
“Bing ProFX is one of the leading platforms in the United States offering Forex, Binary Options and spreads. Regulated by the CFTC and based in New York. It is also regulated by the IFSC of Belize, as well as the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission. The company is also registered with the Financial Conduct Authority of the UK.”
This website looks like a scam, because none of these regulators allow the trading of binary options!
Any broker that is regulated will show their license number on their website. Additionally, you should always verify their license at the governments website.
I also have the same question. Can I know which trader you got in contact with?
I have account with them.
I opened an account, by the direction of a trader I found through Facebook (red flag, I know). I initially invested $500, and the trader placed trades on my behalf. Once my profits reached $4,000, the website said I had to upgrade to the next account level, which is $1,000. Then I exceeded the limit for that account. I have now invested a total of $5,000, and supposedly have over $40,000 in profits but they are not allowing me to withdraw until I get the highest account level, which would require me to invest another $5,000. I do not want to put anymore money into this, though. I feel so dumb!!
Anyone know what my options are here?
I think you guys need to talk to lawyer this piece of shit need to pay back for his actions. mind my language I am sorry.
This is stupid! I know I should have done more research before investing in cryptocurrency. I had a referral from someone from Facebook (Yes, it’s red flag) to the guy name Lee Andre. At first, I thought he was legit since I looked at his Facebook and Linkind and thought everyone around him seem like human being. I was fool because they could be a team/ same person working on one purpose. After talking with him about high profit return, I thought it was good now I believe I was wrong. Through his suggestion, I’m using athenaoptions.com instead of bingprofx. In the beginning, he asked me to wire transfer $5,000 to buy Bitcoin from Gemini.com website. Then, transfering to athena acoount. I did everything he told me to. After 6 days, the money on athena go up and I asked for withdrawing. This time he told me I had to invest another $5,000 to upgrade the account since it’s already surpassed the minimum threshold. I was like WTF. Now I’m started looking him up deeper and believe I was scam by this guy and his group. I feel so dump now!. Wondering anyone have the same situation as mine.
I tried to post the image of his fake certificate but I am not given the option. It says Certificate of Membership from The Financial Commission. He readacted a license number.
