This article was sent to us by one of our readers. It is about the unregulated broker Trade 12.
My name is Dana Shakirova, I’m a citizen of Kazakhstan. Please be aware once that Trade12 the subsidiary company of Exo Capital Markets Ltd is a scammer. That means they’re both scammers. I have strong proves and reasons to say that. I had an account acc. # MT4 Id 1065493486 with this company from December of 2017 after long time convictions and calls from this company and deposited in all 10100 $ (Ten thousand and one hundred dollars) with the aim to get trader’s level and more prevelege to earn.
I was assured by an agent all the time, that I could get money back when necessary. The broker Nikita Yanovsky who run me from the first day stated that we’d trade on stocks WITHOUT RISKING, my deposit’s safe and he’d earn with me his comission. During our first days of work, he displayed me good trading on Apple. I cashed out 200$ (two hundred dollars) in order to check withdrawal system. And checked it was gone from terminal day by day but came to me almost a month.
Later there were regular deals on gold, silver and metals. Then there annual reporting period started, when all traders became more active and mainly made money according to Nikita’s words. That’s why there were plenty of suggestions on trading with good positions and quota that I couldn’t cover with my deposit, so Nikita required to cash in, I had to search for additional fund and investors all the time we worked. He said there is a referral program on which I can bring another clients and have my bonuses in 30% of deposit. However it won’t be cashed but support to increase my buying power. Ok I said, I was trying advertising and presenting among friends and companions. So Nikita Yanovsky and his main boss Nikolay Prasnevsky helped to increase my profit to 2000 $ (two thousand dollars). I was so happy, planned to use it.
However there appeared Dropbox’s wayout to IPO, my broker Nikita suggested to make profit on it, of course with additional investing of 13600$ (Thirteen thousand six hundred dollars). He was informed by me that I would have funds only in summer 2018, then could only make deposit, but he insisted on cashing in, working with investors and sharing profit with them. I was under pressure again, it’s so stressful, he tried to urge me. So I didn’t take it. However he booked shares in spite of my unreadyness, my last words were I’ll try to look for fund but don’t promise. I need more time to search.
There have been a lot of my lost nerves and stress on my health. Nikita said there might be Bank’s commission in amount of 15000$ (fifteen thousand dollars) for these booked shares if I wouldn’t deposit needed amount 13600$ (Thirteen thousand six hundred dollars). That moment balance on my account was 12012 $ (Twelve thousand twelve dollars). Nevetheless on 23d of March, when this deal was successfully settled and the broker Nikita said Bank didn’t take its comission neither from my account, nor from him.
He said keep calm, be quite. It’s OK. Happy news I thought and greatly pleased Nikita for that. For 23.03.2018 I had 3 open deals, which I had to close for myself with loss.
The next day Nikita called me in the evening and said we should work on statistics, and emailed me a contract to be signed. I said I had to get acquainted as I was enough cautious after what was experienced. That was a doubtful contract. There were several points that confronted my interests.
Firstly, if to sign I had to work out 500 lots in two months. It means 1 lot = if it’s closed with 100 USD by take profit. Then in two months I should make 50 000 USD. That’s unreal even for successful broker. And there was a paragraph where it’s written only 30% of profit would be withdrawn by me. That’s why I rejected it. Our relations became worse. They made me sign. I have been refusing all the time and suggesting any other wayouts to work and settle. I had 2 partners ready to invest. They were not interested in them. I said pls withdraw me my profit 2000 $ (Two thousand dollars), then I will sign this contract and work with agent. They refused me in this too. Then I was tired of all this. (There were family troubles, Nikita was known about them, I’ve informed him and asked for help, but no, he is not as human being, he’s like a robot without feelings and even a heart absense who needs just deposit and investing).
After all I decided to end up and withdraw only my deposit. I closed one deal with profit and 2 deals with loss. On 16th of April I applied for withdrawal, and I got a reject by reason as if I have a contract with them. I have no any contract signed. I emailed them about it. But there was no reply. On 24 th of April I applied for the second time, rejected again with the same reason. They sent me a telephone call record not full version, where my many times rejections for shares booking are absent. I kindly asked Trade12 to give full version of a call that lasted for 25 minutes and 51 second. Where I stated clearly and accessibly that I’m not ready for that deal. There’s nothing to invest right now. I called Trade12 to see situation into. I didn’t get it from them. Trade 12 Exo Capital Markets Ltd just have nulled my trade account and blocked me entirely. Since March 23d I’ve been fighting for my deposit only. I hope my story will help others be absolutely careful, be acquainted with reviews everywhere, check a broker many times before taking decision to cooperate.
