Vow Markets Review – 5 things you should know about Vowmarkets.com

Vow Markets Review – 5 things you should know about Vowmarkets.com

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

RECOMMENDED FOREX BROKERS

IG USForex.com

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

 

Vow Markets is a Forex brokerage with unclear corporate information. It supports the MT4 trading platform. However, there is a staggering lack of information on the website and the trading conditions remain undisclosed.

Vow Markets regulation & safety of funds

As was noted above – the website of the brokerage does not contain clear corporate information. We could not find neither the name of the company, nor the registered address. This is a major red flag and exposes the ill-minded intentions of the brokerage. It’s safe to assume that the real company (whatever it is) behind the brokerage does not fall under any regulatory oversight. We warn clients that anonymity is another serious red flag in trading since the reputation of the company is a crucial factor in creating trust between the brokerage and the traders. Putting that aside, the probable offshore location of the brokerage, the falsely presented information and the unspecified address highly incline us to suspect 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 FCA 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. With the FCA the compensation is up to 85 000 pounds, where as with CySEC it is up to 20 000 euro per person.

Vow Markets trading software

Putting that aside, the brokerage states that it provides the MetaTrader 4 which is something we do highly appreciate. We attempted to register for a demo account and and discovered a surprising range of trading options which include CFDs on currency pairs, indices, metals, commodities and stocks. However, there is no info regarding the trading conditions which means that even with a demo account we cannot be sure what the actual spreads offered by the brokerage are.

Vow Markets deposit/withdrawal methods and fees

We could not find any information regarding the available payment methods. Usually in Forex trading potential clients of a brokerage may deposit or withdraw via the standard Visa and MasterCard, as well as bank wire.

There is a staggering lack of information on the website of the broker and we find no mention of withdrawal fees, trading commissions. This is why we always advise traders to 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?

Unfortunately, the possibility of a scam looms over almost every trade in forex, especially if you are dealing with an unregulated brokerage. That is why we believe traders should be acquainted with the methods of a scam. Here is how it would typically go about:

Through clicking an ad with promises for fast money, you will be redirected to a website such as  Bitcoin Evolution or Crypto Cash where registration will require you to give your address, 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.

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. Hello

    Unfortunately I made huge debt on this website. I think they’re able to manipulate the graph..
    I’m going to the police with this. Can I in any way prevent to pay my debt? 🙁 I live in Belgium.

    With kind regards Jonas V.

    1. Sorry to hear that. Were you contacted by a Chinese lady talking about huge returns through her investment advisors?

      1. Did you meet this chinese lady online or something?

        1. I had a gorgeous Chinese lady telling me to invest in bitcoin saying she got info from her uncle in london. But insisted I only had to use vow She messaged me on hi5 or tag app I wasn’t stupid and played along with it kept saying I was waiting on the funds to invest. Wasted a good 2 months of her time haha

          1. Something similar is happening to me.
            I was contacted by a gorgeous Malaysian woman who after chatting with me for more or less one week suggested me to invest in gold and crude oil as well as Inthe Forex market.
            I found many reasons not to follow her pressing advices. Up to now it is still going on and most probably so far she hasn’t realized I am less stupid than I pretend to be.
            I’m just waiting to understand how exactly she, or whoever it is, has planned to scam me.

        2. 我也是
          —————
          Me too

      2. Who was the Chinese lady you had maybe same one contacted me

        1. It seem like they are trying hard on Hi5 & Tagged app to scam people. I am currently in the situation where this lady from China living in Hong Kong. She was saying that this coming thursday which is tomorrow there will be a gret chance to invest and aftre days of trying the server on MT5 she advise me to open an account with VOW. Haha

      3. Hello

        I had also made a huge debt on the website. They definitely have their own back end system to manipulate the graph. I met this beautiful Chinese lady from tinder. She send me all pictures of her office, lunch, dinner and had been chatting with her for two months. She got me interested in MT5, and told me it’s her passion to use it as side investment. She said she invested $200,000US to her own analysis team. She encouraged me to do so and willing to teach me step by step. At first, she asked me to register a demo account and show me how to do it. It caught my eyes and I fell for her. I thought maybe with the money I make there, maybe one day I will get to see her in person when I travel to Asia. During the pandemic, I couldn’t stay at where I was, I knew I had to go to my mother land for a while. During the time, She’d still ask me to deposit $2000 to my MT5 account on daily basis. Vowgroup also known as BCPG LTD, later told me this lady used her credits to lend me $30,000 US to my MT5 account and I have ten working days to pay it all off, or else both of our accounts will be freeze. I told her I don’t have any more money to do this no more, nor paying off that $30,000 for her. She said she will handle the $20,000 and ask me to come up the $10,000 which I still couldn’t do so. She later on asked me to open up my account and start guiding me to play. With that hand, the result went -3780US. She said this thing does happen, it’s not guarantee and willing to pay off the 3780 debt for me, as well as the $10,000 I still owe to BCPG LTD. After a week or so, she said she found someone and want to just drop me. What should I do at this point? Vowgroup and BCPGLTD has a copy of my passport and bank card.

        1. cristian patrascu

          Hi, Tim. Thank you so much for your post. I am just in the middle of exactly the same scheme, you described so good. If there s anyway i can help you…I didnt get scammed yet, and if you any ideea how to help you, let me know. All the best. Cris

        2. This exactly what happened to me! It was a chinese lady called Cherry Lin from Date in Asia with her Customer Manager called Chen

          1. Same girl Cherry scammed me. I want to discuss with you.

          2. Peps and anyone else,

            I got scammed by the same girl Cherry Lin.

            A website forum is created so we can post our contact information so we connect with each other. I’m primarily looking for other victims in United States.

            https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/community/threads/business-choice-partners-group-bcpgltd-www-bcpmarkets-com-is-a-scam.66492/

            Please share your info with me Peps (especially you) or anyone else. I’m working on plans with law enforcement action and want more people with me.

        3. Hey Tim, my story was almost word for word, and the loan part got me. Not to mention the freeze. She paid off most of the debt ‘we’ owed. Fortunately she hasn’t ‘blocked’ me yet but I’m seeing when she will do so… We still communicate everyday sometimes even not business talk. It’s really messing with my head. Did she flat out tell you she’s not gonna speak with you anymore? Or just ghost you? I’m also confused with the password bank info part. Did you get any update on what to do with that? Do you mind sending me a message please. Thanks. -JP

        4. Is there any option to delete personal details from BCPGLTD CRM?

        5. Exactly the same happened to me.
          This time the gorgeous lady pretended to be from Malaysia.
          If she had been a real woman it would have been difficult to resist but the script is always the same.
          I am still pretending I have not understood her plans.
          She has pressed me to invest in many ways but she hasn’t succeeded.
          I am still going on to discover what her last step is

        6. Just A Friendly Warning.
          Beware of a bloke, or lady called HUI who prowls apps like Tinder-looking for victims pretending to Be this good looking Chinese woman( Stolen photos perhaps ) asking you to invest in Forex trading Through the MT5 app. The Company She advertises is called: KSGMARKETSWORLD. Based in New Zealand, but also with mandarin speaking brokers?
          Don’t fall into this web, I played along but studied the info she sent me carefully coming into conclusion that I was Texting a scammer.

  2. Evet şuan kurmaktayım. Dolandırıcı olduğunu mu düşünüyorsunuz.
    Teşekkürler

    —————————

    Yes, I’m building it now. You think he’s a con man.
    Thank you

  3. is there anyway to get money back ?

  4. same situation here. I tried to withdraw but no one answered. there is no customer center. I can’t believe how this website still works! If anyone is preparing sue or report please let me in too. I was contacted by a Chinese girl online

  5. http://www.btsmarkets.com is also using the VOWGROUP SERVER

  6. Does this Chinese girl go by the name Talia

    1. mine was Chen

      1. the chinese girl who contacted me, she was called Dong Linger.

        1. Same story for me, her name is Li Sillin from Hong-Kong..

        2. Mr Michael Pasquale

          Was anyone contacted by Cathy Chen?

      2. mine was Wang Jin, English name: Wendy

    2. The one that contacted me in February 2020 was called Cherry Lin. She got me to download MT5 platform and to do dummy trades online and then I started to trust her and invested just under $38000 US before realising the whole thing was a scam! I still have the account with lots of money from trading but cant touch or withdraw any of it! 🙁 I had to use a service Manager called Manager Chen to deposit and also withdraw funds from my account. I started out with Vow group as my broker then Manager Chen upgraded my account to another broker called BUSINESS CHOICE PARTNERS GROUP (BCPG) LIMITED. After I started digging I realised that this was a brand new company registered in England. Also has a secretary registered by the company YUNMA TIANLONG INTERNATIONAL CONSULTING CO., LIMITED also registered under the same address in the UK. This company also is secretary in 1000s of other businesses registered at the same UK address as Vow Group and BCPG Ltd. Im not sure how many of these companies exist. When I got defrauded there was none of these comments here and Vow Group had a working English website. I’m so sorry to hear that this is happening to so many other people across the world. Please warn everyone you know as I never thought it would happen to me! It all looked so legit! Please don’t do any trade via any chinese girl you meet online!

      1. BCPG, vowgrouplimited, gold8services, ambitiontrader limited it’s all the same scamers I know by myself

      2. Thanks for writing this. I have been approached by a certain “Angel” to create a demo account for BCPG limited too and I did. No harm since I am not putting any real money. After several successful trades, she suggested I create a real account but got a little defensive when I asked how is it possible that her claims of having her investments with them for years was inconsistent with the fact that they were registered only in 2020. She tried playing reversed psychology so we will see where it goes.

        1. She often changes her name from Wendy to Angel, also edit their city and country info.

          1. Well, she “disappeared” aka blocked me from WhatsApp which is not unsurprising. Her WeChat now shows her name as “Jasmine”.

            I don’t know if posting phone numbers are against the policy here but hers was +852 54** *471

      3. Hello Peps, I think I got scammed by the same girl Cherry. How can I contact you? – Mike.

      4. Hi same thing here. have you any luck getting back any money I am about to undergo the same process.look forward to hearing from you

        1. Hello any other victims aside from me that got scammed in the United States with Business Choice Partners? I am trying to set up a group chat to discuss our options to take action.

          1. There seems to be a large operation going on over the last few months with forex gold scamming via social media apps.

            It’s going to be very difficult to recover money that has been stolen because the scammers operate in another country. Depending on the country that they operate in, your mileage may vary.

            It reminds me of the same incident back in 2018 where the Hong Kong police caught the people behind that forex scam at the time. This was a huge undertaking for them.

            https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/hong-kong-law-and-crime/article/2155046/10-sweet-talking-pretty-girls-among-suspects

            Because it was under their jurisdiction, they could come to a conclusion. However, whether the victims managed to recover their lost money is another story.

          2. I did not personally get scammed because I did a background check on BCP and it looked really dubious, including the “office” address in London.

            I found this website in the process of trying to find out as much as possible but sure, please do create a WhatsApp group

          3. Hi
            Contact me.

          4. Mike, Moi aussi je me suis fait arnaquer aux Etats Unis avec BCP et c’est une fille chinoise de Hong Kong qui m’a donné le numéro de téléphone d’un monsieur américain pour acheter des fonds !
            Je suis de France

            Mike, I too was scammed in the United States with BCP and it was a Chinese girl from Hong Kong who gave me the phone number of an American gentleman to buy funds!

          5. I would like to join the group

          6. Hello, did you set up the group? I would like to join.

          7. Hello All,

            A website forum is created so we can post our contact information so we connect with each other. I’m primarily looking for other victims in United States.

            Please share your info with me or anyone else. I’m working on plans with law enforcement action and want more people with me. Working on professionally identifying the scammers. I have audio clips. More would be helpful. And videos too!

          8. I would like to join the group too.

      5. Hello, I’ve recently been involved in the scam. I’ve reported It and was wondering how your getting on? Is there anything else we can do. Would be nice to chat. Also any luck in removing information from the website?

        Best,

        Roy

      6. Peps and anyone else,

        I got scammed by the same girl Cherry Lin.

  7. I invest USD 20,000. After 2 week i m profit USD 10,000, But until now i cannot withdraw my money.

    1. Hi.

      I also deposit 27.000 USD.. and they also don’t answer me back when i ask to withdraw the 27.000 USD… Fake company i hope they soon get arrested and in jail… I think money is lost i can’t see how we ever will get them back 🙁

      1. customor survice only LINE.
        he say ..withdraw must over 50,000 ~ under 200,000

  8. I was contacted by a few beautiful Chinese girls on Tinder, who all after a while started saying they were into investments and were getting amazing results. One called Anna I played along with for a number of months. They have a very convincing set up, she appeared to be very wealthy and could always send me pics of her life whenever I asked. I couldn’t work out if she genuinely was a millionaire or they were very good at faking it. One time she was going back to the mainland to visit her father and showed me a case of $100,000 dollars she’d drawn out for him. She would be trading every day and making big money on the Vow server. I did dummy trades and also made a lot of money. She was pushing Vow as a broker an said they were regulated by ASIC. When I checked the ASIC register with the registration number they gave me, there is a Vow Group there, but when I checked it out it was a mortgage company, totally unrelated! When I challenged her on this she broke contact. I’ve reported this to Tinder as they are being targeted by these scam groups in the East and people are possibly losing thousands. Watch out for the Chinese girls, and Vow!

    1. Thanks for review, seem like I am getting scammed! haha, lucky i do my googling before doing any steps further

    2. I’m in contact with that same Anna Lin (might not be the same though) and she showed me picture of a Bentley and Rolex she bought her father.
      Very convincing but she is never on the picture with the gifts to her father!
      She even video called me several times!!!
      Their scam is very well structured.
      For the moment I’m playing with her as she wants me to open an account on VOW.
      I see how long it entertains me before I confront her.

      1. Richard Barton

        Yes I got shown pics of a Bentley as well, and we did a video call. Does she own shops in Hong Kong and have a young daughter? It’s a very elaborate scam. Contact me on tonbar at outlook dot com if you can as she tells me she has no knowledge of any scam!

    3. What tinder administration can do?

  9. The other thing is I think they are manipulating the graphs, so it seems like you’re making money every time. I tried to compare the graphs for USD/GLD etc on other websites but they never matched. They have a very clever scam operation working here and have put a lot of effort in to it.

  10. My ‘agent’ is also called Chen but he’s a male, so they are obviously using fake names. Nevertheless I have some pics and videos of him, so I reported him and the website to the cyber-police. I urge everybody else to do the same, non matter who your agent is

    1. I reported Also to Hong kong police

    2. My agent’s name is also Chen.

      1. Hey Tim…same here. how can we get our money back do you know? let me know how you go..is anyone here interested in joining a facebook group so we can all find a way together to retreive some funds?

        1. I am in the process of reporting this matter to my bank. My bank is terminating my banking relationship with them due to the transfers. I don’t think we will ever get our money back but what we can do now is that, we should all stand together and let the world be aware of these scammer companies from Hong Kong, China.

    3. Shayne p Godfrey

      Can you supply pictures to me as I think this is so.ilar to my scenario with chinese women and his name is Zheng

    1. Is the number ending in 80677. Talia her name? Am chatting with her as I type this. Want to make sure that I don’t fall for this.

    2. Hi all I got scammed probably the most money here. I feel so bad and trusted the guy I never met from online for over four months. He just wouldn’t give up, calls me and texts me everyday and every few hours. He wanted me to invest in MT5 and i knew nothing about the brokers behind the scene. I was so naive. I only looked up MT5 online and i thought it was a big company and it did not look like a scam to me. I knew nothing about Vow Group if, i wish i did and should have seen all your comments here much earlier. I just lost contact with him a few days ago and at the same time heard others talk about investing in MT5 but no one had a problem like me. They were able to withdraw and deposit money easily and usually done the same day. The guy’s Phone had been turned off for days now and unable to call through again. Both of his wechat and line had no more replies. I invested over $150,000 in January. I can not believe this, can anyone help me? I don’t even know where can I report internet fraud? Where should i report it to? And they have a copy of my ID and my bank account number, are they able to do anything anymore from this? I asked to get my money back Since January after depositing but the customer rep never fulfilled my inquiries. I got so scared then the Chinese New Year they said they were off. then the Covid 19 striked China and they had more excuses to delay the money. The customer rep wechat got banned in Feb sometime I wasn’t able to get a hold of him till the guy who took me in shared his Line contact with me and i found him again. But as of last night the customer rep also disappeared. Then i just found out this whole thing is a big time scam. Can someone advise me how i should proceed with the police?

      1. Any luck with getting it back…im in same posiition…i think we should get people together in a facebook group so we can share how we can get some funds back.let me know

  14. Can you share the link? Mine was Chen too

  15. I will contact the Police with all the proof i have – i think it must be Hongkong police they have a website https://www2.erc.police.gov.hk/cmiserc/CCC/PolicePublicPage?language=en

    hope you all will do the same…..

    I can see there is some website who claim they can help us to get the deposit back but they ask for a fee 10-15% of the lost funds and somehow i am not sure if they also are scammers.

    1. Sorry, Did you reported to police?

      I will reported police also

    2. I believe you should wait the police force answer. Can you contact them? which one their answer?

  16. Same Problem here. My girl was Lin… since middle of January no contact (WhattsApp wasnt online), also a manager of VOW Group… Money is still at the account but not possible to get it back. Also the website of VOW Group is not reachable… Need your help…

    1. Show me her picture….but i believe they use fake picture…

      1. That’s right they fake picture, for my case they use idol picture in China.
        I believe that is him. I request video call he show me 9 second look still younger.

        I just knew that it was a scam after ask them withdraw.

    2. I have the self problem, I tried get back my money but it’s not possible, can you find the solution? Were you report to Hong Kong or Beijing police force?

    3. A girl named Lin Xiao English name Michelle is trying to get me invested into forex. Her teachers name is Chen. Met her on tinder.

  17. I hope all these scammers suffer and die a painful death. Let’s all pray and hope the virus gets them and they won’t be cured.

  18. Apparently they now move to new website/domain. AgondaFX.com. I cant find anything online regarding this trading market, but online claim registered since 2005, but upon checked DNS record, seem only registered last year around 2019. Hence, can someone also created review for agondafx.com to remind someone else?

  19. I Got answer from Hong kong police –

    They say they cant help because website is not registret in Hong kong

    1. It’s so sad 🙁
      Do you know which country do they register website, If register in Thailand. I will reported and consult with cyber-police.

      What should we do next step. please advise

      1. Hey there.
        The person who was trying to fool me is from Hong Kong, And the Ph # provided is area ( 852 ***. 8928) referring Ksgmarketsworld. Com as their base of operations. The address for this business is in New Zealand, I investigated, but there’s no “ official office” at all only, only a shopping centre, and a accounting office. Nothing related to a brokerage.
        The photos She sent to me were TGTBT. ( to good to be true) Plus after 2 texts she started trying to get my money to fill forms and “Walla’ “… start investing in stuff I barely understood. RED FLAGS from the start.
        Called couple of friends, who are professional investors in Brazil, and they told me to stay away, and I did.
        Please people, Don’t get fooled by this Criminals.

    2. Please report to https://www.insolvencydirect.bis.gov.uk/externalonlineforms/CompanyComplaint.aspx.
      The companies are all registered in the UK

  20. I was scammed too by Chinese guy from Tinder … I lost 10000 USD… I can’t withdraw my money and this guy disappeared… he is from Hong Kong… he was sending some pictures of him but I think those pictures are fake…
    GUYS WHAT CAN WE DO? HOW CAN WE GET OUR MONEY BACK? Let’s cooperate all together and get our hard earned money back….
    It’s awful… I see they scammed many people and big amounts of money

    Nobody should be so naive to put money into a company without doing some recearch. I was contacted by rich sweet chinese girl. After few days she tild me about this and urged me to trie the MT5 for free. Demo trading.

    1. hey Gerald, please send me the photo thanks

    2. I’d like to see the photos.

    3. Can you send me picture of her please

  28. I am currently in talks with a chinese girl from Hong Kong , it’s the same process, she added me on tinder, she befriended me and soon she opened up about trading gold, as I don’t know anything about this I was curious, she explained gold is a great investment as this and that blah blah, etc. etc… anyways she is also sending me pics of her “car”, watches and some other expensive stuff, I don’t know if the pics on tinder is her but I doubt, now I’m on demo account using Matetrader5 and “Vowgroup’ and all the forecast(3x a day) with timing you would really ‘earn’ they may have a great software to do this, she video called me but she was using mask she say not using make up. She have difficulty in speaking English. My girl name is Lin Meisha, she also took pic of a “couple watch” and telling me it’s her gift to me when we meet. But I won’t invest even if she insist on the topic every now and then , I will just play along till she drops me…we are still chatting at this moment. I hope this would stop as not all of us are knowledgeable on stocks and trading. I hope there is a way that this people are gonna be exposed. I read an article that by using this they were able to cheat a lot of males with over HK 13 million. This article in south China Morning post is all the same story we have, https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/hong-kong-law-and-crime/article/2155046/10-sweet-talking-pretty-girls-among-suspects. But I have a picture that I think it’s legit as I ask my girl for a video when she was at the gym and somewhat tha ‘gym’ coach caught her face(blurry on screenshot ). By the way there is a number in the article to call for people who got scammed. The group she ask me to join is VowGroup which is a red tag/mark by so called forex experts. I think I’m gonna be more aggressive in playing with these sweet talking girls to waste their time and waste my time too. I hope the article helps.

    1. ThTs exactly what happens to me, but i blocked her now and ended this shit. If you have pictures can you send me. Im curious if she is the same person like i had.

    2. What number would that be and who is it to contact for help?

  29. Richard Barton

    This is a pic of the Anna I’ve been talking to for months now. Met on Tinder, Single mum, apparently very wealthy, drives Bentley, did a video call with me, has retail shops in HK, trying to get me to invest in Vow. She’s still in contact even after I said they are a scam which I can’t work out.

    https://share.icloud.com/photos/0F7wtzSPbxKLzJFYcKXwy-u1A

    I’m at tonbar at outlook dot com.

  30. I got scammed over $180,000 I don’t know what to do where and how to file to police or investigation? Does anyone know? And I see them keep registering for new accounts on tinder with different names to scam people.

  31. Hi ! I had recently the same story. Sorry for my english but it’s not my mother language (i’m from Belgium).
    So I’ve matched recently with a girl from Hong-Kong named Li Sillin 31 years old and very pretty. She said she was in Belgium for business a month ago and that’s why she appeared in my “search”.
    She was very funny and open. We quickly chatted on Whatsapp and send me pictures of her office with view on the sea, of her Ferrari, Mercedes SLS, house, friends, family during 2 weeks…
    She seemed to be very interested that we could met in Belgium or in Hong Kong. She spoke to me about his former relationship and we exchanged opinions about everything. It’s only after 2 weeks that she speaked about trading, she explained me she had this money thanks to trading into digital currency and other bitcoins…
    it was interseting for me because I had money to invest but she was absolutely not pushing me… She said it was her passion, that it was the good moments to invest because of Covid19 and also that she adores to teach people about this…. So I didn’t say yes but Ididn’t say no…
    And 2-3 days after she talked me about MT5. And app to download & after she wanted to teach me.
    Finally I was busy and I said to her maybe next time, I said I was not ready.
    And suddenly she got angry with me and said I was a poor ghost without ambition… That I was not reliable, not confident… and she quit the conversation.
    After reading your commens, now I’m sure it was a scam….
    I have her number and pictures if needed.
    Thank you to read this & take care all of you 

    1. I had a similar experience lately…A beautiful Chinese girl by name Yao Na approached me on Tinder and started showing off her lifestyle pics to me. She started saying that she earned this wealth from the forex investment of gold and that she follows her uncle who is government officials and many people rely on his advice so he gets the internal market advice. Which this girl uses and makes money. She got me to open MT5 demo account and gave me some trade opportunities. In a matter of days the account size doubled and then she told me that now you can make real money by opening a real accounts in a similar manner. She got me deposited about 5000 USD in the real account, we started trading. Everything was going well but she told me to take one big trade utilizing my full margin which completely wiped me off with the loss of 1700 odd USD. Now the girl started her emotional melodrama that it was her mistake that costed me loose everything. So she made a new plan to scam me. She said lets invest big money by opening big account of 100k USD due to which we will hire an Analyst (Name Wan) who will give me a dedicated attention and we will grow the money 5 times the current size this will recover all my past losses. With a lot of back and forth I invested another 5000 USD so the girl came up with 95k USD which make the account 100k. Now the girl said that whatever the profit is we will share 50% (Who gives 50% of the profit….I guess I was not naive to not understand her scam tactics). Now the money is grown to 500k but the customer service is asking some personal tax of 20% else the money will not be released to my account. Guys this was the debt trap that was built on me so that when the withdrawal time comes they tell you to pay 20% tax on your 50% of the earnings which in my case was 42,000 usd. Please be aware, these beautiful girls just lure you for big money, their objective is just to take you money. Please do not fall for them. I agree with someone telling to create a Whatsapp group or facebook page so that more people are not fall prey for this trap. Guys Please stay away from tinder, Chinese girls and any investment portal. Hope this helps

    2. I got scammed same way , can you share her pictures.

  32. Really? I met the guy on tinder yes he said he works for a stock company and that’s what he’s good at. Never pushed me crazily to do trading but I fell in his trap too easy. I was traveling in many countries and had no clue or no interest to do trading but I like him. I fell for him that’s why I did it and he introduced me to this service rep at MT5 seems like a nice guy but later disappeared a few days after my guy disappeared. But we were chatting and talking on phone for few months. Bu the time he disappeared then I knew must be scam. I deposited a lot of money and he taught me how to trade and make money. I actually made some money but so bad luck when i asked for money withdrawal they had so many excuses not letting me. Otherwise i would have found out sooner than after few months. It was first the CNY then covid 19 lasted through gout early April in China. They still didn’t let me do a money withdrawal till both disappeared then i don’t know what to do till now. Since covid 19 is what people are worried about now I figured anything I try to do or report may not make much of a use. Anyone else can help me on this?

    1. Hi Somi

      is the guy use name :lin ?

    2. 我似乎也在tinder遇見相同案例 但我的對象是以中國蜜拓蜜負責人自稱的張愛林 看似富裕的生活 却看不見一張生活照 只是幾張沙龍照
      多才多藝的他 似乎又像本人 目前我只加入https://user.agondafx.net/login?iid=410P4MCn&uid=23&pid=JSJ5
      這個虛擬帳戶 還沒要開真實帳戶
      有點詭異 所以一直評估看著
      剛好有這些貴人網友的資訊 更踏實了
      ——————————————————-
      I also seem to meet the same case in tinder, but my object is Zhang Ailin, who claims to be the person in charge of China Mitomi. It looks like a wealthy life, but I can’t see a life photo, just a few salon photos
      He is versatile and seems to be like me. Currently I only add https://user.agondafx.net/login?iid=410P4MCn&uid=23&pid=JSJ5
      This virtual account has not yet opened a real account
      It’s a bit weird, so I’ve been evaluating
      I just have the information of these noble netizens

  33. Hi,

    Anyone got cheated by a guy named Jin Yu Da from Tinder too?

  34. Hello

    Anyone got cheated by a guy named Lin Zhen Hai from Tinder too and he was from Beijing self employed doing export productions OEM for water purifier

    And my story almost the same as Somi

  35. Saya jg mengalami kejadian yg sama seperti kalian,saya berkenalan dgn seorang pria dari tinder dia bernama song yan,sesudah berinvestasi dan mengalami kekalahan, dia minta putus dari saya, bagaimana cara untuk membuat laporan ttg penipuan seperti ini
    —————————————-
    I also experienced the same thing as you guys, I met a man from his tinder named Song Yan, after investing and suffered defeat, he asked to break up with me, how to make a report about fraud like this

  36. Can someone please tell me the next steps to take to retrieve my money. I am in dire trouble…how does this process work?

  37. Funny thing is I’ve reported a potential forex gold scammer on WeChat with all the necessary evidence, but it returns with the message “insufficient evidence available”.

    It’s impossible to help fight against them when the platform developer is backing these forex gold scams.

  38. Good thing I’ve found this article. Some girls on Tinder also matched with me and asked to add Wechat or whatsapp. Most of them talk to you like its normal and then slowly ask what is your profession and then goes straight to investing in forex. Says shes willing to teach me, if I will treat her to dinner one day, ask me to open a account on BCPG. Too good to be true…

    1. Oh man, I wonder if this is the same girl I’m talking to. She also said she’ll teach me and treat her to dinner one day. Can I trade her pics with you?

    PSA: DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THE BROKER CALLED BUSINESS CHOICE PARTNERS GROUP LIMITED.

    They are 100% a fraudulent broker and a newly registered business in March 2020. Their official website lacks any proper contact information and has some strange errors in the text/layout. The secretary is registered under a Chinese business called Yunma Tianlong International Consulting Co. All of which are dubious in nature and also on the registry there is no proper contact information. The broker itself is labelled as educational services, which is yet another red flag.

    A friend of mine almost got scammed. I repeat, if any stranger keeps telling you to trade gold on MetaTrader 5 and also to deal with Business Choice Partners Group, IT IS A SCAM.

    All scammers have multiple social media accounts designed to lure victims into their trap. The names and credentials are all fake, and often they are males pretending to be female accounts or the other way around. The images they post are generally of items, food, and locations, often showcasing a luxurious lifestyle. Sometimes their “selfies” do not match the “often beautiful or handsome” profile picture, even though the individuals look similar. Sometimes they use images of real people and copy them into their accounts to deceive victims. These forex gold scams are elaborate. Scammers are usually hired to do these things and they make money based on how much they have successfully scammed. Therefore, you’ll find the perpetrators are the ones who hired them in the first place. So there’s multiple levels of criminals involved.

    The scammers will always start off talking about general things in life, then move onto trying to use psychological or emotional tricks to deceive the victim. They promise lies such as telling you they will meet you someday, promise to go on vacation with you, or asking you to treat them to a dinner if you get rich. Some try to push for a romantic context. They will always try to confirm your profession and your income to get a gauge on how much you earn and how much they can steal from you.

    All conversations lead to the exact same script of how they are passionate about trading gold as a sideline. They will get you to do a demo account on MetaTrader 5 and try to teach you how to trade gold. They will tell you to sign up to Business Choice Partners Group. They will keep talking to you everyday and always lead you back to discussions about gold trading until you either ignore/block/report them permanently or sign up to the scam. Their social media accounts are often new, around 3 to 4 months old. On WeChat for example, you can see up to 6 months worth of moments. The scammer posts image moments every few days, but you’ll see that for some reason, their moments start around the beginning of April 2020. So they only have 3 months worth of moments… what happened to the rest? The most probable deduction is that the account is only 3 months old.

    The graphs on MetaTrader 5 under Business Choice Partners Group are all manipulated. Scammers will tell you either that they are experts in the matter or that they are abiding by an analyst who tells them when to trade gold. Either way, the scammer wants to control exactly when you trade gold on the MetaTrader 5 app so they can control the demo into making you think you will earn tons of money.

    If you have already invested large sums of real money into this, they will block you from withdrawing any funds. Scammers will always ghost you once they have scammed you. They will move on to other victims, while you have lost your money. One of the biggest problems here is the fact that they have your passport or primary ID as well as your bank account details. Never give these out to random strangers from overseas, especially for a broker that you have yet to fully research or if you are new to forex trading.

    Because the scammers are operating overseas, it is very difficult to track them down or prosecute them. The chances of getting your money back are very slim. Websites promising to recover your stolen funds are often yet another scam so be very careful and don’t get fooled twice. It is up to the relevant authorities in the jurisdiction where the scammers reside to launch a large scale investigation into the matter (which often involved many criminal groups in many locations). This doesn’t occur often though.

    So if some random stranger talks to you about how lucrative gold trading is and you are unsure about forex, do your own research on the broker and the trade. It is not as easy as you think.

    I hope this helps people. Be very cautious of arrangements that look too good to be true and stay safe.

    1. Hello Walter are you in United States too?

  40. For anyone who has the pictures of the person that scam you. We can exchange. I also met this lady in tinder which we then continue to chat on Whatsapp. She showed me how she made money in this unstable situation. She guided me into opening a demo account on bcpgroupltd and under her guidance, I made good profits in BrentvsUSD market. I think she used the oil instead of gold because she knows I work in oil service industry. So today she asked me to open a real account, and when I tried to open real account, the site asked me to send my ID. This is when the red flag raised inside my head. I then researched about this company, and found that this company has a very questionable website. Contact us link does not show any address or phone number. And after googling, I found the pictures of the same girl on several different websites.

    We can exchange the pictures

    Let’s share informations so no one else would be fall as victim of this crime.

    1. Please share the pictures you have . I got scammed same way.

  41. I had the same problems guys, but I loss only 5000 €. We can create a group on whatsapp or facebook to protect other people for criminal activations.#

      —————————–

    1. Hi Benny, do you have the pictures of girl? Would you like to share with me please. I think i am also being scammed. Please forward me the pictures

    2. Please share picture to exchange. I got same way .

  43. Same situation for me. Cute chinese girl, talking gold. introduced me to her analyst in englad for Business Choice Partners. I got caught up and sent my drivers license but no real money. Not going to send any real money, but i am now pushing back on her that this is a scam.

    Her name is wu rinka, she has a facebook profile, but it is likely someone pretending to be her.

    provided the bank account details to wire the money to, but when pushed for whose name is on the account the analyst wouldn’t provide. That is when things started to really stink.

  44. Does anyone know how to delete personal details from Business choice partner CRM?

  45. Meme situation pour moi, Jolie Fille de Hong kong, riche et qui m’a proposé de négocier de l’or sur MetaTrader 5 et également de traiter avec Business Choice Partners Group. Je ne sais pas comment faire pour récupérer mon argent, environ 10 000 dollars. Quelqu’un peut m’aider ?
    Je suis de France
    ——————————-
    Same situation for me, pretty Hong Kong girl, rich and who offered to trade gold on MetaTrader 5 and also to deal with Business Choice Partners Group. I don’t know how to get my money back, about $ 10,000. Someone can help me ?
    I’m from France

    1. Hi Walid, do you have the pictures of girl? Would you like to share with me please. I think i am also being scammed. Please forward me the pictures on my email [email protected]

  46. Please forward me pictures. I just registered in this company without doing any research .

  47. Wow, I am soooooo glad I researched this. I am/WAS literally days away from putting money into an account with Business Choice Partners Group. I am a recruiter, so I thought it was interesting that the female contact couldn’t be found anywhere on LinkedIn. She also has her own business, claiming she owns a clothing factory. Her alleged name is Ms. Li Shure, but she goes by Shu Shu. She has sent me so many photos, has talked about her mom, dad and brother. I am a complete idiot, because I almost fell for it. Below is the introductory message from her Account Manager, Mr. Zheng Linshan. My question is….what do we do about this, these people, this organization?

    “Hello, Mr Joseph. nice to meet you. I am bitcoin account manager of the business choice partners group limited server on MT5. My name is Zheng Linshan.”

  48. Let’s make a group! Find these f**kers and get money back!

  49. Hi Everyone,

    I have reported this to several agencies around the world & I recommend you do the same. If not for yourself for others who will be the victim of this scam & loss their life savings.

    Kindly report it to below :

    1) National fraud & cyber crime reporting centre (https://www.actionfraud.police.uk )
    2)HONG Kong police force (https://www2.erc.police.gov.hk)
    3) Internet crime complain centre (https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/splash.aspx?)
    4) Securities and Futures Commission ( send email with details to : [email protected] )

    Don’t ignore this , do your part at least.

  50. Hello Guys!

    Unfortunately I fell on the same trap. How do I report and where? Any recommendation is appreciated. Thanks!

    V

    1. 1) National fraud & cyber crime reporting centre (https://www.actionfraud.police.uk )
      2)HONG Kong police force (https://www2.erc.police.gov.hk)
      3) Internet crime complain centre (https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/splash.aspx?)
      4) Securities and Futures Commission ( send email with details to : [email protected] )

      Also I would recommend letting your bank try a chargeback or at least file a fraud complain against the accounts you transferred money to.

      1. I too have came across this girl who claims to be from Hong Kong. During our ‘friendship’ I joined a dating site and two other different different Chinese profiles contacted me and tried to push me into investing money into a broker that they suggested – it was not the same broker as the Hong Kong girl was pushing so I believe this scam is now widespread across China. Alarm bells started ringing and I didn’t feel so bad about chatting with so many other women.

  51. We should definitely file group law suit to against this fraud company, BCPG also known as VowMarket. They fucking ruining my life!

  52. On of her most common sayings was “I have washed my face, I am going to bed”. Who else got this from their Chinese ‘Friend’?

    1. Hi James,exactly the same.How can we share info?

  53. Does anyone have ideas of how to get money back? I’ve got 50,000 in my account and am still on good terms with them. They don’t know I suspect anything.

    1. Too late, it doesn’t matter your term with them, their solely purpose is to steal your money. Call your bank to see if they can help you get the money back.

    2. Request small withdraw , 5,000 or 10,000 . U can try this, there is no other way. Read my comment below.

  54. Hi Everyone,

    They scammed me for 110,000$ and I couldn’t withdraw anything , than they closed my account.
    I have reported this to several agencies around the world & I recommend you do the same. If not for yourself for others who will be the victim of this scam & loss their life savings.

  55. I am also a victim to this international cyber scam.
    Very similar plot and we all fall for.
    Found a match on dating app (in this case TanTan). She spend time building up trust and then introduced to me the inside world of XAUUSD trading.She explained that despite it is high risk, it is possible to get an expert analyst who will
    reduce the risk. This can produce a great amount of profit with minimal risk.
    She asked me to use metatrader 5 app and open a demo account. This way I could trade with fake money. After a few trades of perfectly successful trade. She urge me to get a real account and deposit money. Looking back, this is the moment I got hooked and consequently got scammed. I did not realize it until later (late July 2020) on when I search and search a bit more to find out bcpgltd.com is a well known site that scam people with almost identical procedure as what I experienced.
    So I deposited multiple wire transfer of money into different accounts and each time it would show up on their
    website bcpgltdasia.com
    They recently changed their website to ksgmarketsworld.com
    So how does this scam work?
    The newly made online friend will continue to encourage you to put more money. In my case, she explain that the more money in the lower the risk. She was even willing to chip in 50000 to aid my cause, after I put in an extra 3000.
    Each trade makes around 5000 – 20000. Each week, there is a 2 to 3 times of trade.
    Then when my account accumulated around 164000, I decided to request a withdraw of 5000. At the moment, I was already quite certain I got scammed and I was hoping to get some money back if not the total.
    On the day I made the request, I was asked to do one trade. This trade looked incredible at first with well over 80000 in profit before closing. Then all of a sudden, my account went from 164000 to -125000!
    The trade closed losing well over 275000+ in an instant.
    My money was totally gone. The trade graph showed an abnormally where the price of the bitcoin instant went down to 11660 from 11873. It happened at 8am August 10 US Eastern Time.
    Later, I went to a few other websites and non of them recorded the abnormally low price at that point in time. This event along with other complaints online led to me conclude that this is a scam. A very clever one.
    Right now, the girl said she also lost money from the trade and is getting friends to lend her money to pay off the lost. She warn I can’t ignore this because the company will come after me on the money I owe. This is the threat they are slowly putting on me.

    I have report it to ic3.gov
    I’m gonna report to other places as suggested by other victims.

    1. Hello All,

      I got scammed too.

      A website forum is created so we can share pictures or any information we can get about the scammers. I’m primarily looking for victims that have transferred money into American bank accounts. This website unfortunately won’t allow us to do that.

      Please share your info with me so we can collectively take action together to identify the true scammers and put then in their place!

      1. Hi, is there any fcb group of all victims? I was scammed also and would like to know, what can we all do.

      2. Hi Mike,

        I got scammed recently and I am in US.

  56. Hello All,

    Unfortunately I fell in this trap also. I think we should all collectively work together to get our money back and put this people behind bars. If I only have the ability I would fly over there and confront the responsible person and get my money back but I figured collectively group is far more effective.

  57. In middle of July 2020, A women approached me through we chat. We chat several days. from photo, i think she is a pretty lady. afterwards she volunteer teach me to how to download and use Meta Trader 5. she told me she earn a lot of money from this app. she even gave me transaction screenshot. she told me to follow a instructor’s instruction. I use the demo to try several time. It is true.
    I trust apple app. so first I invested 10,000 Canadian dollars in http://www.bcpgltdasia.com which later the website change to http://www.ksgmarketsworld.com. At first we get several transaction profits.later the instructor asked me to invest more money. so I invested another 10,000 Canadian dollar. on august 21 2020, my instructor asked me to invest eurcad chart. in one second my money all is gone. then realized that it could be scam. I reported to Vancouver police.

    later on September 1st, I emailed apple company and phoned the software company MetaTrader 5 office in china phone number: +86 24 31297987. The company staff said the software whole chart could be fake. This software is scam software. be careful.
