  1. yes, I have very bad experience with Elcurrency . If you want to deposit money you can do that directly and they are calling you from Switzerland and Austria, if you want to transfer money you have to do that to a Polish account (which my bank refused to do as they are on a blacklist) and the company itself is accoording to the website established in Scotland. I am trying to get back my money already for 3 weeks but no response or if you get a response they need to talk to the account manager first……..
    Probably I will never see my 5000 dollar, which is still there, back again.

  2. That you can lose money in a speculation is perfectly normal. And I’m not complaining about that either. The risk was and is known to me and I consciously took it.
    The problem is that ElCurrency sees your money as your money and doesn’t pay out a cent of it anymore, i.e. you can’t just sell and say “The war´s”, but the traders (monthly income 30,000 according to their own statements), tell you very cheekily and directly that only they decide on payouts.
    That’s why I can only warn you at this point to transfer only one cent to this company and these traders (I had three Nicolas B, Robert H. (the worst) and Jason W.), you won’t see him again. If anyone thinks that’s just the rating of a disappointed investor:
    1) at the beginning it went well for me too (the stake) doubled very quickly.
    2) Since the colleagues only communicate by phone and the internal chat system, I copied every chat very quickly and recorded the phone calls. So if you don’t believe it, just let me know.
    To all, who are still in there, to you, to you, to all, who are still thinking about getting in: Invest the money better in cocktails.

    1. I invested what is probably a paltry amount to some – £250. Robert H was my contact by WhatsApp phone/message. So many calls that in the end I stopped answering.

      I asked that my account be closed as it seemed to be losing money all the time. Robert H said it could take 2 days or 2 weeks. He wasn’t very polite to me. I left it for a While and when I checked my account it was 19 of whatever currency it was. Contacted Robert who was quite rude to me and advised that the account was now closed. Obviously has done this straightaway.

      So out of my £250 I had absolutely zero return. Checked my bank account in the hope that he might have transferred what the balance of my account was, but zilch.

      What an absolutely con. He tried very hard to get me to invest £1200 and never stopped going on about how much money you could make. Would you like to earn a million in a year he asked.

      Regret the day I read the article on Bitcoin and even more elcurrency. I hadn’t expected to be contacted by them or anyone as thought it was something I did. How ignorant I was.

    2. Yo tambiés estoy siendo estafado
      De vez en cuando me hablan y me dicen que hay que esperar a cerrar las operaciones.
      Pero siguen abriendo y pasando de mi.
      Cada vez me contestan menos.
      En fin que también lo doy por perdido.
      No se sabe donde tienen sus oficinas ni nada, no?
