    The survey team went to visit the dealer IG in Tokyo, Japan as planned. The dealer’s logo can be found on the publicly displayed address, indicating that the dealer had a real business place. However, the surveyors failed to enter the company for further visit, so the specific scale of the business remained unknown. Please be prudent when trading with this broker.

    Others Frequent errors in the MT4 server affect the normal operation of the MT4 terminal
    IG-Live servers get errors frequently. These errors affect the normal operation of the MT4 terminal and causing losses. IG Market has no willing to be responsible for this. For example, the margin calculation error is 10 times higher and causing the order that can be placed will not be placed due to insufficient margin. It may also liquidatedation due to insufficient margin.

    Others Losses caused by EA's failure to place orders due to IG-LIVE's wrong quotation
    IG MT4 CFD account ID: lwcdd. MT4 login: 172845. For EA's order failure due to quotation error, I have proved that IG-LIVE will make an error. I reported the complaint on August 13, 2021 compliance.igx@ig.com. The complaint has not been reasonably resolved so far. He only perfunctorily shirked his responsibility on the grounds of price change, and did not face the problem of wrong quotation or give a reasonable reply. At that time, the bid price quoted by IG-LIVE was far lower than the market price, so the order failed.

    I gained $500 but was unable to withdraw. The customer service asked for account verification and I had to answer questions. But it still deducted $800 from my account.

    Unable to withdraw withdrawal failure.
    A client tried to withdraw funds after making profit, but IG did not allow withdrawal and instead deleted profit from the client's account. The client thinks IG must have stolen his money.

    Scam IG refuse to open account after provide the documents requested!!!
    After opening an account there and submit all the necessary and required documents i received an email saying to be approved i must call IG. After many attempts, i was able to speak with a Spanish representative, and she mentions in order to be approved i need to contact the gentleman Pablo Castrillo. After another session of calls, i finally spoke with him and he mentions i need to send more documents in order to be approved. I confront him replying i have sent all the documents required by your website, to which he replied "my analyst needs more documents". I ask him for information about his analyst, he refused to disclose it. I sent several emails to support i never got an answer!! Finally, i got a rude answer from Pablo which i post here. Finally saying, IG has many factors to be a scam!

    Unable to withdraw Unable to withdraw in IG. Change the closing time when I was trading
    The complaint letters have been sent and received several times. Sometimes an email notification will not work, sometimes it will work. Inquiring customer service must also endure the temper of the customer service, and those who do not believe in evil can continue to send money to them. By the way, trading will make you unable to close your position, so be careful. If you don’t agree, mark your account as abnormal

    Others Harsh trading environment
    Endless re-quotes, but I can’t close the position and I can’t set the stop loss. They will only keep telling you to make up money to avoid liquidation.

    Resolved Fraud
    In September this year, she (Mr. Football) joined me on WeChat through the Lanxi Chefs Exchange Group. I added her (Mr. Chef) as my friend on October 31st. She was cheated by a foreign exchange trading network platform. At first, I saw her. The foreign exchange sent by Moments is making money, and there is a mentality to try. The other party said that investing 20,000 to 50,000 is enough to earn 3 to 5 times the principal, and the profit is a 10% commission paid to their company, so I will invest 50,000. Therefore, through the introduction, she gave me a download platform, which can transfer funds to private accounts. I asked her customer service department that the charging channel is under maintenance. At around 3 pm on December 21st, use our designated chat tool. Hey, I bought pound and dollar fluctuations with other coaches. The time is the 60s. I did not follow up in the middle of the round and said I wanted to make up 74700. So I said I had no money, and the other party told me that she helped me. Can you borrow money? The next night, she said that she lent me 25,000 yuan and I personally collected 50,000 yuan. Starting from the evening of the 22nd of the second round of data calculation, I don't know why two wrong rounds were performed, but the data did not match, and I had to say it again. This time I didn’t have any money, nor did I have money to cover the position, so I went to withdraw the next day and found that the fund account was frozen. I contacted the customer service, and the customer service said that as long as there is money, if the payment has been made in full and not frozen, you can withdraw cash. . The other party contacted her and she said it was to help me find a solution. Their team borrowed another \25,000 and helped me recharge. I added 37,550 yuan myself. After turning in the frozen funds, I went to withdraw cash, but I still could not withdraw cash. The customer service department stated that this was due to credit score.
