I cant believe I got scammed, I mean Im on a disability pension, I watched Dick Smith talking to Walleed, (not sure the spellieng) but I thought as Dick said "how can we not invest" so I went online and got sent straight to Fx a gentleman...although I can think of many other appropriate names for him, JamieGold, he sent me his email even, he pushed and pushed said it was only $250 and he could guarantee if I trusted him that he would make me money, actually that was his catch phrase "Lets make Money" Grr, even when I went to hospital and he kne...w I was ill I had like 20 missed calls, and so the nightmare began, he would call every 10 mins if I didnt answer, he showed me a graph which looked very real and said he wanted me to put my money in for the Amazon Prime event, which he also guaranteed great success, at this stage I thought Im too ill to keep talking to him every 15 minutes and he wanted to hook up my bank account straight to FX then I could withdraw 4 or 5 Thousand that Amazon would make me...Ugh well you can imagine... Im not an idiot I should have known better, just beware Im no mug but he made a laughing stock of me, oh and thanks alot Dick Smith...!!!

Same as others...
I transfered 8,500 euros from my French bank account and it was done two days after, the second transfer of 10,000 euros is blocked for more than 24 days because there is no full name of my husband on my bank account documents issued by La Société Générale, one of the biggest bank on the planet. When I ask them to send me back my money they still ask me a paper that I can not provide. My payouts were processed following my consultation with wealthwatchs,com - a leading financial recovery intelligence.
No star rating
complete scam when they realize that u know u r completely logged of their site any money u thought u had has gone when u try to withdraw money from them they actually try to empty out your credit card when u tell them they say no your bank has made a mistake
SCAM City - Low Lifes
I never get involved in writing reviews but needed too in this instance as these guys are fraudsters to the highest level and like the previous honest reviewer I couldn't s choose zero stars and had to give one star not that I wanted to there really needs to be a better process, they play on greed promising ridiculous returns, I guess if is sounds to good to be true it probably is which is the case here. I initially checked out a few websites and watched a few Youtube videos promoting "the Calloway Crypto System" - this is a front for the low ...life's at FX-Leader and other scum supposed brokers that leach off these leads. As soon as you sign up via email you get a phone call harassing the crap out of you to deposit funds, then they start to try to increase the minimum deposit of $250USD to $000,s stroking your ego and telling you how smart you are and get serious about making dollars, the measly minimum won't do. You will never be able to use the "Calloway Crypto System" as it is a scam website, looks pretty but that's about it, the demo is a scam and not in real time - just check out the BTCUSD rate of $12.5K really the rate as I type is around $10K. Anyhow, I sent an email to ask for my initial deposit back eventually I got a call and email from [name removed]<[name removed]@fx-leader.com> apparently a personal assistant to the brokers or fraudsters who put me through to someone I couldn't even understand trying to wave a carrot in front of me to keep the funds in by promising me that my account would be $400USD within 24 hours and then the account would increase to $5-10K within a month on some crap VIP program, then in the same breath asked why I didn't deposit more money if I was serious making money REALLY, I said to him "why would I deposit more funds with all these websites saying this is a scam" (unfortunately I did this the research after the fact), he went on to support his business saying the scam reviews were fake - what a tool!!! Anyway I kept asking for my money to be refunded with plenty of to-ing and throwing, again the guys English was so bad I really couldn't understand a lot other than he was DODGY. The final dummy spit from him came when I said "are you going to refund my funds or I'll get my bank to reverse them at my end" If the moron is reading this REAL review I instigated the bank to do this a couple of days ago anyway. So yes this is a full on fake, scam, rip off whatever you want to call it, please don't get sucked in and a message to these low life scum - go and get a legit job stop ripping innocent people off!!!! P.s they sent me an email with a link so they could take control my computer to assist in a refund WTH - really, I told them that wasn't happening so please do not let them control your computer god knows what they will do.
This company is a definite SCAM!
One Star rating only because I could not post review with out one Star(they deserve no STARS)
They ring and harass you to give them money and promise the world, their platform is fake and when you look like making money all of a sudden it takes a huge fall and cleans out your account. Then you get the call to add more funds and they tell you that they want to do a trade and get you big returns and pay some money back, if they make some gains they still come up with all the excuses in the world so they do not pa...
They will scam you to your last sent
FX leader is a total scam investor claims he's in England but really he's in Australia Sydney...when you ring the English company it doesn't know Heads from tails when it comes to where the investor is.. once they got your money in their hands you can't get in touch no more. The financial advisor will not get back in touch with you. After the initial $295 they did that twice so they got roughly $590 off me...then will try to get another $5000 off you if that won't come out of your account they will try to get $1000 off you and when that doesn'...t work you don't hear from him again .I hope he rots in hell.if you have so-called invested you have lost your money, get in touch with your bank and shut that card down as soon as possible it's a scam ,my investor so-called [name removed] which I believe is not because when you ring up sometimes receptionist says who his real name is rip off merchant you ring the Sydney company with an O2 number they're trying to tell you that they're in England even [name removed]...friendly, he has to be he steals your money that's how he make a living.. they are not a legit company they have no licence whatsoever and I have heard of nobody not one person that has made any money from them whatsoever you get so frustrated.. how can I put it you just want to put a bullet in your own head you feel like such an idiot I had just come out of hospital that day from a kidney operation so I was a bit doped up... please don't sign up save yourself the frustration
They have Fake Advert with stories etc .. Don't even register with them or supply any info. Even you pay with your credit card , they seems to know more than the normal information on their so called secured payment site . You start with a small deposit, then they con you to put in more by saying the small trade is making good money in only a few minutes. I worked out that what they show you is only a simulation & not a real trade. Ask for refund of deposit, instead, they want you to give more information in order for them to refund- which i...s a big lie & try to scam more money by processing your credit card again & again. You will have all sort of crooks with many position titles, names like [name removed], [name removed], [name removed] trying to contact you to sign off documents etc in order for refund .When you read the documents they emailed, they want civ number, authorisation to charge your credit card etc... what ???? this gives them the legal right to deduct more from your credit card.....Avoid them... No transparency at all..
Absolute scam, don't go anywhere near there. Cancel your credit card and count your money as lost
I provided my credit card details and they withdrew the money with nothing in return and no chance of recourse. They blocked any access to funds which appear not to exist in any form of investment.
Scammers scammers scammers
They will hound you to put money in never let you take it out do a trade and and then the mark crashes they take it but here is the catch there are no trades being made its all a scam they are nit licence or have anyone qualified to trade the markets.

The greatest SCAM ever
Advice to everybody - Don't do it! You will lose all of your money. Their initial offering of $250 US will become $1000 US, just as soon as you login to the website. They will conn you into giving out all of your personal info, including bank card details, saying they need this so that they can give you a refund. Their objection is to talk you into betting more and more, expecting to win more. They have yout credit card details, so they just help themselves to your credit or debit. They insist that you fill out all of the KYC forms. They have you over a barrel! You want your money, they want your details!
Even after cancelling my card, they still managed to get my money. It is now in the lap of the Gods and my bank employers.
HANG UP IMMEDIATELY. Major Scam
This is a Scam. They take your money illegally. Go to your bank immediately as it actually takes 2 days for them to take your money even though if appears the money is out of your account. They even change the name that appears on your bank statement from Fxleader to Ravebyutterwave
There is no trading platform. It’s a simulation trade platform where they intentionally take on losing positions ‘ for you ‘ so it can appear you lost your money in the market. Your money never even saw the market. It went straight in their pockets
Don’t give them any details. Don’t talk to them. Don’t respond. And don’t feel ashamed if they scammed u.
Put my details in (no $details) and realised quickly it was a dire mistake - I've had 7x phone calls in 4 minutes. We asked them to stop calling and they got angry asking why we registered then, and my partner told them where to go, and the response on the phone call was well "F*** you too Mr Kangaroo" (what?) - Reporting them now.

Looking at face book, see what likes like a official ABC interview of Nicole Kidman
Abc reporters mentions he checked out this bitcoin future / fxleader and its real, made him money. So I clicked on the link, sends me to bitcoin future page, I add my email, name and phone number, as I hit go, it send me a web site fxleader.com.
At the same time a get a phone call, from a [name removed] a fxleader advisor, who tries to get me to hand over my credit card details, I say no, but will put them on the web site deposit form. So I start that, b...
FX Leader - Don't ever invest with them and tell others
Anyone reading this for the first time - don't do as I did - I read reviews and disregarded them because they were fast talkers. They are fast talkers and they will take your money without a second thought. Please please please read these reviews and then contact asic or fca to build a case against these bastards.

FXLeader as dirty rotten scammers. Do not touch them, Do not let them access your computer. They are rotten liars and have scammed over $20,000 from me and I have not been successful in getting anything back from them. Spread the word, these people need to be stopped.
I got conned to give 200 US . It was very persuasive.
However I was lucky to con the account manage back a little buy telling him I would invest 3000 dollars if he would release to me some of the money so i could check that the refund of money to my card could work in order to give me confidence.
The guy sent me back 150 US thank God. I requested me the balance of 50 dollars but he gave me an excuse. Rather than let them keep the 50 in my account with 25 doolar ontop of profit, ill trade it out for a 0 loss. hopefully they get nothing.
Thank God only 50 US lost. I learnt a valuable lesson.
How disgusting that these scam companies can be operating. Its a sad indictment on humanity trust me
Sorry for anyone who lost more.
