      As per Ms. Huang' s said, she opened an account in July, 2018 and kept on depositing money to IQ Option. Though she made some loss in trading, the withdrawal service worked normally. Last December, she couldn' t place order at the platform, and submitted withdrawal application for the safety of large sums of money in her account. However, the application has been still “ in progress”by this March, and she cannot get the money back.

      Ms. Huang contacted IQ Option several times, who replied that due to her violation of the trading rules, the platform detained her profit, froze the account, and finally terminated the service agreement with her. Meanwhile, Ms. Huang said that she had been losing money without any profit; Moreover, the platform should return her principal legally. But IQ Option didn' t reply anymore.

      Until now, Ms. Huang' s withdrawal application still hasn' t been approved.
