Ponzi scheme has always been a major threat to forex investors’ asset safety. Recently, several investors from Thailand complained to WikiFX about UAG, an illegal forex broker that defrauded them through a typical Ponzi scheme.To get more news about UAG, you can visit WikiFX news official website.
According to a Thailand investor, he was persuaded by someone from LeoNine Global, the IB of UAG THAILAND, to signed up at UAG. From July to August in 2019, the investor made 2 deposits of 129,200 baht(US$4,084.21) and 136,000 baht(US$4,267) through transactions from Kasikorn Bank. For a while, his account remained normal during trading, and he was able to make a US$3,500 withdrawal in early October.
Confirmation of investor’s 2 deposits last July and August
By the end of October, UAG suddenly announced that due to the broker’s change of LP, investors would not be able to fully withdraw for the next 1-3 months and restricted the maximum amount of withdrawal to US$500 per day. Seeing the notice, the investor decided to eventually withdraw his account balance within the broker’s US$500 restriction. From October 29th to 31st, he withdrew altogether US$1,500, but all his applications afterwards remained unapproved.
As the investor had made some profits at the platform, he further deposited 102,000 baht(US$3224.38) in early November despite the withdrawal applications still in progress. But unexpectedly, his previous withdrawal applications were yet to be approved, so new applications had to wait. The worried investor contacted the customer service, and was told that due to “system issues”, investors could only apply for withdrawal after January, 2020.
But until January 31st, 2020, the investor was still unable to withdraw, and this time UAG claimed that withdrawals won’t be available until March. The angry and frustrated investors thus decided to expose this illegal broker, which is suspected of conducting “ponzi scheme”.
UAG again postponed the time that withdrawals will be available.
Coming to March 2nd, 2020, the alleged time that investors could make withdrawals, investors contacted the customer service of UAG again about the matter, only to find that the company’s customer service agents had all left and investors’ pending withdrawals remained unavailable. The broker was finally exposed for defrauding investors with “Ponzi scheme”.
According to WikiFX App, UAG is currently unregulated and has been heavily complained by investors recently. Its unscrupulous illegal practices are considered to be a “Ponzi scheme”, so investors should definitely stay away from this broker.
