WealthCapital review – 5 things you should know about Wealthcapital.fm

Beware! WealthCapital is an offshore broker! Your investment may be at risk.

RECOMMENDED FOREX BROKERS

FXTM

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Open trading accounts with at least two brokers.

 

WealthCapital is a Forex brokerage presumably registered in Estonia. It provides a web-based trading platform, not the MT4 trading terminal and clients are extended a generous but balanced leverage of 1:200. Furthermore, there is wide range of trading products from which to choose but the spread on EUR/USD is 2.8 pips which is quite high and unfavorable for traders. There is a required minimum deposit of $500 which is twice the industry average and, again, unfavorable for traders.

WealthCapital regulation & safety of funds

According to the website the company behind the brokerage is registered in Estonia by the name Astra Consulting OÜ with an address Harju maakond, Mustamäe linnaosa. Estonia is a member-state of the EU and has diligently included online Forex trading within its regulatory framework. However, after checking with the online registry, we can safely conclude it does not hold a license by Finantsinspektsioon. As a matter of fact we know of only one Forex brokerage that holds a license from the country’s financial regulator – Admiral Markets.

Many unregulated brokerages prefer Estonia as a location because of its reputation as quite a liberal country when it comes to crypto trading and are hoping to take advantage of misinformed traders. We always recommend traders take a look at the online registry of the Finantsinspektsioon when dealing with a supposed “Estonian” brokerage. Putting that aside, the brokerage does provide a web-based trading platform. Here is a screenshot:

As can be seen from the screenshot – the spread is quite high at 2.8 pips on EUR/USD, especially compared to the industry average of a pip and a half. The leverage extended for traders is 1:200 which is quite generous and balances as the same time. However, the lack of regulation inclines us to believe that potential clients of the brokerage may be open to substantial risk.

Traders needn’t have to worry themselves with such risk if they choose to trade with a brokerage regulated and authorized by a prestigious regulatory agency. Such agencies are the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK or CySEC in Cyprus which have been leading names in Forex trading for some time now. Their regulatory framework is composed of a number of strict rules which prevent clients from falling victims to fraud. Such rules include the segregation of accounts which assures that commingling with the client’s money is not possible. Furthermore, a license by such a regulatory body entails participation in a financial mechanism by which clients may be compensated if they suffer losses due to fraud or bankruptcy.

Crypto Invest Home Investments deposit/withdrawal methods and fees

Potential clients of the brokerage may deposit or withdraw only via Visa, MasterCard and wire transfer, popular e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill, WebMoney are not supported. We couldn’t find any troubling withdrawal conditions in the terms and conditions of the brokerage.  We advise traders stay away from the brokerage and to always be diligent and put up only the required minimum deposit, instead of risking a bigger amount with no certainty. Afterwards, they may also try to withdraw a small amount in order to check for any unexpected fees or delays. Such fees and delays are usually the signs of a scammer.

How does the scam work?

Information is a pretty solid criteria for judging a brokers legitimacy. Scammers would not share much of their information, because precisely there inconsistencies and irregularities may appear which expose the whole set-up. A good example is this very broker and the misleading information it gave regarding its regulatory status.

After informing themselves for the brokers trading conditions – traders should be well-versed in the way of the scam:

Through clicking an ad with promises for fast money, you will be redirected to a website such as  Bitcoin Evolution or Crypto Revolt where registration will require you to give your email and phone number. After sharing your personal information, you will being receiving calls from brokers, compelling you to invest with them and win big. After a few minutes hearing their pitches, you decide to deposit some $200-250. And just like that – the scammers take a fat commission from this initial deposit.

After they are done with you, senior scammers begin working you into putting even more money. They say it’s the only way to profit from trading even more. After making the mistake of investing even further, you’ll begin wanting to get out of this and withdraw what you have left.

Unfortunately, the con-artists have no such thing in mind. They will now begin persuading you to wait it out and not withdraw right now. The motive here is quite straightforward – traders have a limited time window for filing a chargeback with their bank and get their money back. The “recovery department” will simply want to mislead you into missing this crucial period and, along the way, losing any chance you might have of getting the money back.

What to do when scammed?

As was mentioned above, scamming is quite the common in the trading world and, sadly, even you might suffer from it. In such an unfortunate case there still may be some available options for you.

You may contact your bank or credit card provider and file a chargeback. Furthermore, due to the high instances of fraud – both Visa and MasterCard have decided to sidestep scammers as best they can in forex trading. The first thing we have seen so far is that MasterCard has increased the previous time period of six months for filing a chargeback to a year and a half with their peer Visa expected to follow suit in December.

If, however, you have provided the broker with your credit card details, immediately cancel your credit card.

If you have given information regarding your online banking pass – you should switch it asap!

Beware of potential calls from self-described “recovery agencies”! They prey on scammed and vulnerable traders who are desperate to recover their losses. They will require an “up-front” payment to help you, but after paying them, no such help will be coming your way!

  1. I invested 250pounds in March this year. Jason Miller spoke to me a couple of times. Unable to get into my bitcoin account. Emailed no reply. Want my money back. But to no avail.

    1. ha anyone had a bad experience with wealthcapital.fm, i have invested £4000 with a bitcoin with them, they have increased by account with a few trades to £6100 and no problem so far but they want me to invest £8000 more to make bigger profits, any thoughts from anyone

      1. my partner also have invested 10.000 euro’s ( not in bitcoins but in stocks en buys en sells ). They increased it with a few trades to 14.000 euros. They want also that he invest more and he almost did but I have convinced him not to do. I think he will lose the 10.000 euro’s. He made an agreement with a certain Tommy ( he has confidence in this man ) that he will not push him furthermore to invest more. But then a college of Tommy phoned him for making a plan not paying taxs over his money but only when he invest more and he pushed and pushed. My partner said please connect me back to Tommy. My partner made agreement at every end off the months he withdrew 300 euros of his account. So we will see.Please informe me over yours experiences with Wealth capital

        1. Hi Sonia, how his things?
          I am being persuaded to get a loan to invest on capital wealth under promises that I won’t lose my money on the first 2 weeks.
          I would love to know your experience with them to help me decide. I hate loans and I am scared of being scammed 🙁

      2. Lying scum..
        They are all crooks.

        Julia Donati is a lying and deciving false broker.

        STEER CLEAR

        1. Robert Berrington

          Hi Adam,

          I was taken in by Julia Donati and her conversations, and guess what ! She has disappeared out of site and I was passed on 3 more times to different people?
          How stupid we all have been

      3. Don’t do it,stay well clear

      4. Take some back the supposed 2100 profit an if your account goes up an u supposedly make more money take the profit till u have the $8000 they want. Do not give them another $8000 of your own cash from your bank account,wait till you’ve made that money on the system an only give them any profit you make

        1. After reading other people’s comments from this supposed trading system it’s apparent they’re a bunch of crooks,This is their way to scam ordinary people of their hard earned cash,do your research b4 giving money to any company trading

    2. Robert Berrington

      Hi John , any further updates on this ?
      I invested 2000 and made a so called profit of 4000 plus and the account stands at 6000 plus,I have been involved with at least 4 different managers since April and really getting no where them. They keep saying the account is done well and praising the company, however, they will not let withdrawal take place, giving tax reasons etc as excuses.and wanting more investment. I started this to make money but I have been a fool and do not expect to see any return on this!
      A wasted 3 months and 2000
      Lesson learnt
      Names to look out for
      Julia Donati
      David
      Daniel
      Ben Williams
      Regards

      Robert

  2. I transfered 250 and after reading more decided to withdraw. They obviously ask for “verification” of my account but they are a bunch of scammers with no address or regulatory authority. I don’t think i will give them any copies of my documents. Any other ideas how to get the money back? They have no address and claim to be registered in Zurich on Europstrasse. I actually work in Zurich next week so suggested I’d pop in to get verified but they hang up on me

  3. An update… The bank will not file a chargeback as they are registered as gambling and betting company…. Goodbye cash.

  4. An update. See my revieuw above. My partner has made a withdraw at the end of the month april. So far so good. But then the problem started. He and Tommy started trading again and in a few moments he `lost 13.000 euro’s. A recovering plan was introduced: My partner must invest 10.000 euro’s and they want to fill up his account with 5.000 euro’s. My partner told them he don’t want to invest more. There was silence for a while but when Tommy sympathized with my partner, he filled my partner’s account with 7.000 euro’s. So my partner started trading again with another employee and in two times trading he lost again 9.000 euro’s. Dave called him and he said when you invest another 5.000, i will fill up your account to 7500. He pushed and pushed , don’t listen to your girlfriend, you are a guy with no balls you have to deposit now. My partner was again complete indoctrinated but next day he texted I’m going to stop that. Dave texted : Be happy with your misery.

    Wealth capital.fm is scam. Those are things against which we must caution one another with extreme seriousness.
    Google facebook etc. must check these scammers first before putting them on the internet.

    I know that a revieuw is for writing down your experiences not to curse but i say: Tommy Dave Charles and all the other crooks of Wealthcapital YOU ARE DAMNED

    1. These fuckers will fuck up 1 day,faceless scammers they have no balls,if it’s too good to be true it usually is a scam,nobody just helps u make thousands from a moderate deposit,if it was so easy they would just do it for themselves and not tell anyone else like most financial people ,I hope these scamming bastards get hit by a bus robbing hard working people of their hard earned cash

  5. Hi Sonja ,
    Any more on this ?
    Looks like I have been ripped off for 2000 plus

  6. Hi everyone sorry to hear all your unfortunate stories 🙁 My story…
    I stupidly recently invested 500€ and then another 5000€ and almost immediately thought this was a scam organisation. I told them I had changed my mine and didn’t want to continue but was somehow persuaded by my so called account manager ‘George’ to trade and see how it goes, promises of big returns bla bla, I have since found out so much about this company and it has SCAM written all over it! and I have applied to withdraw my funds but so far they keep saying it is in process so watch this space! Has anyone out there withdrew successfully? I’m in fear I’ve lost all my savings but I have to live in hope. For those if you that dont know the are unregulated and registered in Estonia but there IP address is in Lithuania, I’m not sure they have an office in Geneva at all. Please anyone thinking of investing DONT DO IT! Since 5th June I have also received over 100 call from various scam organisations so my private & personal data has been shared although they deny this. To say I’m extremely concerned is an understatement. PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORIES PEOPLE

    1. Hi Mandy,

      I had 500 Euro put back into my bank account in the beginning by Julia Donati , however, this was just a part of the plan to get me to invest more,which I have not. A Ben Williams is ringing up constantly and delaying withdrawals and says he has a plan, so trust him 100% and we can have bigger returns.
      When I say I want to see money back in my account the subject of more investments takes priority and excuses start about paying too much tax etc .
      He also said withdrawal forms would be sent to me but they never materialised, not a good sign I’m afraid.
      We need to warn others and get this wealth capital closed down because it seems they are ruining people’s lives!

      Be warned people out there, This company is a scam

  7. After my bad reviews we had 2 nasty intimitaded telephones calls: they sew us for 500.000 euro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I have informed the Dutch authorities

  9. Do not trust them they are scam you can check peoples review about this broker on trustpilot too as they look good at first, but when you come to try and take your money out and close your account it becomes extremely difficult, lots of charges are deducted and it takes ages to do.

    1. Are the 5 star good reviews on Trustpilot real or are they in with the scam?

      Reading some of the good reviews on Trustpilot it is hard to believe they are real? I really think they are made up from the WealthCapital scammers to put them in a more favourable position with the vulnerable public..
      Jake, have you actually closed your account now and what sort of figures are we talking about? Charge wise and what time period?

      Thank you

  10. weathcapital.fm is a SCAM broker!
    They are all con artists trying to get all the money they can from you!
    You will never be able to withdraw your money from there, they will postpone and give you false excuses and when they assume they will not get any more money from you they simply hung up the phone!
    STAY AWAY FROM THEM!

    1. WealthCapital fm are a scam broker

      Wanted to close my account and withdraw my money back,however, after heated conversation with Ben Williams he said I was trying to manipulate the company and he mentioned the word money laundering and he also mentioned they would sue me?which I found extremely out of order, as he was getting very stressed and really unprofessional in his approach when being challenged.
      He wanted. me to invest more or proof of more investment money available before withdrawal can take place,
      Getting really silly now and quite unbelievable!
      Please if you are reading this do not invest anymore ,even if you have give them the 250euro starting fee.
      Get out now ,They are a scam company

  11. I have asked trustpilot to investigate the 5 and 4 star reviews. One review says that she is trading with WC over three years, only this crooked company only excist for half a year. Amazing

  12. Hallo, habe auch 250 Euro investiert. Allerdings weiss ich nicht was damit passiert ist. seitdem ist funckstille. Kein Anruf kein antwort auf mein e Mail aber jeden Tag Anrufe von andere Gesellschaften die sehr agressiv probieren mich zu investition zu überreden. Sehr lesstig. Werde auch das Geld zurück buchen lassen. Also Finger weg von Wealth capital

    Translated by Google:

    Hello, have also invested 250 euros. However, I do not know what happened to it. since then there is no funk. No call no answer to my e mail but every day calls from other companies who are very aggressive trying to persuade me to invest. Very readable. Will also book the money back. So stay away from Wealth Capital
