      Beginner investors who dive into forex market without doing the basic research are the most susceptible to forex scams. Heres a story shared by Mr. Bao, who experienced withdrawal failure at Cougar FX.

      Complained by: Mr. Bao

      Illegal broker: Cougar FX

      Cause of complaint: unable to withdraw funds

      “I signed up at Cougar FXupon my friend‘s recommendation and deposited over 30,000 yuan. Last year on December 23rd, the broker suddenly announced that the system would be upgraded to 3.0 version, with all data transmission completed before January 31st. Later another notice came that the process would take longer.” Mr. Bao didn’t pay much attention to the notice at first, thinking that he can withdraw sometime later. But what happened next was much beyond his expectation.

      “My account on the platform could still trade normally, with a remaining balance of US$2,212.44, but the system never approved my application when I applied to withdraw.” Mr. Bao suspected that his account may be manipulated. Meanwhile, the broker kept on dodging his questions, telling him to wait patiently as “the system and the relevant data are still being upgraded, so your account balance is unavailable for the moment” .

      I waited and waited, but instead of getting the problem solved, I found my account balance, as well as trading records, were all wiped out by the broker. I tried to contact the customer service several times, but they never gave me any reply and my emails were blocked.

      Totally disappointed by Cougar FX, Mr. Bao reported the illegal broker to WikiFX in the hope of recovering the lost funds under our assistance. (WikiFX broker-exposure email: wikifx@wikifx.com)
