    Heard they halted withdrawals above 5k in Japan recently but figured it was a rumor.

    Now it makes sense. Also makes sense why they are diverting Japanese clients to Seychelles rather than Cysec. Good luck to their funds.

    Check this out mate. Seems you are right. This is really dodgy

  • Andreas

    This company is the biggest scam and wondering why cysec is allowing them to continue stealing Japanese funds. They are blocking access under the Seychelles company from Cypriot IPs to hide from Cysec and Cysec is either very stupid or intentionally turning a blind eye.

    If you login form an IP outside Cyprus and go to the Japanese website you are immediately diverted to Seychelles

    Also they used to use to accept clients from the US after trading point ex XM got fined and recently they ran away with the client funds.

    If you check traffic is now diverted to other brokers acting only as an IB.

    Cysec wake up!!!
