Clearsave review – 5 things you should know clearsave.io

Beware! Clearsave 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.

 

Clearsave says to be a leading provider of online trading services, offering traders a world- class trading experience with over 250 instruments, including forex pairs and CFDs on spot metals, stocks, futures, spot indices and commodities, all of which on the industry standard MetaTrader4 platform.

This may sound as a fine offer, was it not for the fact that Clearsave is a unregulated, offshore broker with virtually no credibility.

Clearsave regulation & safety of funds

Clearsave is an offshore broker, owned and operated by the St Vincent and the Grenadines based Lagoon Technologies Ltd. Apart from the offshore registration, which makes Clearsave rather anonymous, the bigger problem is that the broker is not regulated, as it should be, which basically means that their credibility borders zero.

Unlike brokers, which have legit licenses to operate in Europe, the UK or Australia, unregulated brokers are completely unaccountable fore the way they handle their clients money, and more often than not are simply involved in scam.

Brokers, licensed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) on the other hand are reliable trading partners as they duly abide by strict rules and are subject to a strict regulatory control.

What is more, with brokers, regulated in the UK you will get the additional protection of a special client compensation fund, which basically insures your trading account for up to 85 000 GBP.

Clearsave deposit/withdrawal methods and fees

Clearsave says to accept VISA and MasterCard, bank wire, crypto coins and a couple of e- wallets including EntroPay and PostePay. Unfortunately we were not able to verify this, so here our best advise is to stick with the more conventional payment methods like VISA and MasterCard, if they are truly offered. The reason is that with major cards like VISA and MasterCard you will be able to file for a charge back in case you realize you are a victim of a scam.

Payment methods are not our biggest worry with Clearsave though. Our problem is that they say to offer a Savings Account, which according to their presentation comes with fixed, guaranteed returns – in one section of the presentation they quote monthly returns of up 45%, while in another returns of between 5% and 25%. See for yourself:

No matter what the promised percent is, the problem is that these are basically managed accounts, as is the Clearsave Auto Trade Account:

Irrespective of whether you are told that your trades will be managed by a special trading software, as is the case with the Auto Trade Account, or if they will be managed by your account managers – this is a clear indication that we are dealing with scammers.

Clearsave, as virtually all forex and CFD brokers, are market market makers, which means that they make money whenever their clients lose. So it is more than obvious that if you let Clearsave to manage your trading account, they will have the incentive to mismanage it in order to lose your money for their own profit. This is an example of a conflict of interest.

Also, it is highly misleading if a broker says your profits are guaranteed. Trading leveraged instruments involves a high degree of risk – actually, the percent of traders who lose money even with perfectly legit and regulated brokers is between 75% and 85% on average. The exact figure is published by every broker in the EU and the UK.

Furthermore you should be aware that Clearsave offers trading bonuses, which is yet another worrisome sign. The problem with all trading bonuses is that they come with additional withdraw conditions – in this case Clearsave requires you to trade the bonus amount divided by 2 in lots before you will be allowed to withdraw anything from your account. Take a look:

And take a look as well that Clearsave reserves the right to change their bonus policy on their sole discretion, without a prior notice, which kind of explains why you may never be able to reach the above mentioned minimum trade volume requirement, which is quite a serious task even as it is. If you receive 200 USD as a bonus, you will have to trade no less than 10 000 000 USD in order to get a clearance to withdraw.

And we should not forget the fixed 30 USD commission Clearsave charges with every withdraw request – basically, you will be penalized with 30 USD even if your withdraw request is canceled. Bear in mind as well that trading bonuses are one of the favorite tools, used by scammers, when it comes to finding a pretext to refuse a withdraw.

How does the scam work?

Social media like Facebook and Instagram and the Internet as a whole are full of questionable ads, promising investment opportunities with guaranteed returns. And if you click on one of those ads, you will visit one of the so called robo scam websites like Crypto Engine and Crypto Master Bot where you will be invited to join some innovative trading platform, where some special trading software is supposed to generate you fantastic returns, while you seat back and watch your balance grow.

And if you do register, filling the simple registration form with your e-mail and phone, in a second you will be redirected to the website of a unregulated, offshore broker like Clearsave, where you will be asked to deposit about 250 USD. Next, either you will be offered the service of a professional account manager, who will be supposed to take care of your trades – we already discussed why managed accounts are a clear indication of a scam – or you will be left to trade by yourself and your trading results will be spectacular. That however will not be real as your trading account will surely be manipulated – scammers can do that easily – with the sole intention that latter you will deposit more. And you will be receiving daily calls by your account manager, who will be trying to persuade you to do exactly this – to deposit as much as you can.

Finally, when you attempt to make a withdraw out of the blue you will be explained that you are not eligible to do so, because of your welcome bonus minimum deposit requirement. There could be other excuses as well but the bottom line is that you will not be allowed to withdraw a single dollar.

What to do if scammed?

Your best chance to recover your stolen funds is to file for a charge back with your credit card provider, meaning your local bank, in case you have paid with VISA or MasterCard. In both cases you will be able to request a charge back within 540 days.

And if for any reason you have told scammers your credit card number, card security code or online banking password, or if you have been mislead to install a remote desktop application like Team Viewer or Any Desk, immediately cancel your credit card, delete the application and change your online banking password.

Finally, be aware of the so called recovery agencies as well. You will simply be asked to pay some fees in advance and that will be all. You will not get any service.

  1. I was deceived into investing with clearsave. I deposited the minimum $250 by debit card. I then realised it was a scam.I requested to withdraw my funds.I was then asked to download AnyDesk software which I did. I gave the scammer the access code but then he told me to log into digital banking.I refused and the scammer got very angry.I immediately contacted my bank who cancelled my card.I am filing for a chargeback.

    Do NOT invest with clearsave. They are criminals and you will be scammed like I was

    1. Yes they are scam.

    2. Cheater !! after I transferred 250 euros, I was contacted by an alleged
      Broker who wanted to explain to me how to open and close positions. At first he was friendly and nice, but after I refused to invest more money he got rude, rude and even insulted me on the phone. A few days later, clearsave positions were opened and closed within hours with a loss of 800 euros.
      I’m trying to get my money back now ..
      DO NOT invest with Clearsave. They are criminals.
      ———————————————————–
      Betrüger!! nachdem ich 250 Euro überwiesen, habe wurde ich kontaktiert von einem angeblichen
      Broker, der mir erklären wollte, wie ich Positionen öffnen und schließen kann. Am Anfang war er freundlich und nett, aber nachdem ich abgelehnt habe mehr Geld zu investieren wurde er unverschämt, unhöflich und hat mich sogar am Telefon beleidigt. Ein paar Tage später wurden seitens Clearsave Positionen geöffnet und innerhalb Stunden mit 800 Euro Verlust abgeschlossen.
      Ich versuche jetzt mein Geld zurückzubuchen..
      Investieren NICHT bei Clearsave. Es sind Kriminelle.

      1. They called me because I came across Amazon thing online. When I told them I don’t have online debit card he got angry and started giving me ultimatum..so I told him I will have to get gift card to pay and he is like okay I will call tomorrow. Thank you so much for your feedback..I m not going to be scammed

    3. Exactly the same happened to me. They are criminals. Sorry to hear your experience too

      1. Yes definitely scalers. Need to be stopped trading

        1. I have been scammed as well. I deposited 250 euros. Quit a while later a Kimberly Ross phoned me to tell me my account balance was 4000 euros so I told her I wanted a wtthdrawal of 2000 and reinvest 2000 that was the last I heard from her needlesss to say neither was done and on checking my balance it was down to 1524 euros.I asked for this to be withdrawn middle of December but nothing has happened as yet. I keep emailing them but get no relplies. There was another guy who contacted me the once,but I’ve never heard back from him or Kimberly Ross.I have requested my initial deposit back but again there is no response from anybody .As a last resort I have asked my credit card company to get my deposit back. Chris Wright

    4. thank you so much for this as I was going to invest more money with them, I am finding the correspondence also ridiculous for any company , pushy or completely unable to contact them.

    5. Same situation for me.
      Scammer company
      Just don’t know how to get money back

    6. I just got scammed! They were supposed to be depositing money into my account and instead they cleared out my account and then asked me to give them access to other accounts as they said that they had accidentally taken money out instead of depositing money into my account and now need another account to put the money back. They called me from London phone numbers and showed me my Clearsave account but when I did not give them another account number the man told me that I was lying about not having another account and asked if my boyfriend would give him access to his account. They got really nasty and are dangerous. I can still see my Clearsave account but I have no way of getting access to anything. Like Paul, I also started with an initial $250 deposit that seemed to grow very quickly. Then they asked me to invest a £1000 in crypto currency and I did and that is where it all went wrong. I seemed to have made £1000 within days and I asked to withdraw my initial investment. That is when they cleared my account and have left me overdrawn by over £2000. I AM DEVASTATED. PLEASE BE AWARE.

      1. Hi Fauzia, sorry to hear about this. How did they get access to your account.

      2. I have just been scammed by the same system. I thought I had some the right kind of checking, and it seemed so legit. I have lost nearly £2000 and I am gutted. I dare not tell anyone, because I will feel even worse for the disappointment and disapproval I will be subjected to. Shame on them. This was from a bit ad campaign which promised to general a goodly amount from a reasonable deposit. I am going off for a cry now. Hope everything else goes well with you. We live and learn I suppose. Although, it seems I do not learn.

    7. Hello, how do I make a refund on my bank?

    10. MG CAPITAL REVIEW
      CLEARSAVE OVERVIEW
      Clearsave claims to be a reliable digital trading platform, offering a quality trading experience with a wide range of instruments, including currency pairs, stocks, commodities, futures, and more.
      Its products and services may seem excellent, was it not for the reason that it is an unregulated broker that lacks integrity. Clearsave operates under Lagoon Technologies Ltd.’s supervision, a company based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
      The platform is registered offshore, making it relatively anonymous, although the more important issue here is that it is not operating under any financial jurisdiction.
      That is evident with the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) 2020 warning notice about Clearsave on its website. This alone is already a major red flag for the firm.
      Moreover, Clearsave’s actual owner does not go by the name Lagoon Technologies but by MG Capital. In other words, there is no Lagoon Technologies from the get-go. It was MG Capital, a Georgia-based company, that was controlling the platform the whole time.

      ABOUT MG CAPITAL
      Looking into MG Capital’s financial statements, its income taxes turned out to be false. Its actual revenue flow was also brought into several offshore companies located outside Georgia, allowing it to sidestep the country’s banks and financial watchdogs.
      Ioseb “Soso” Mgeladze served as the MG Capital’s director, who is directly associated with other companies in Georgia.

      Caption: Ioseb “Soso” Mgeladze, Director of MG Capital
      The firms, including the Universal Capital Group LLC, UCG Agro LLC, UCG Green Power LLC, Inter Trading Company Ltd., and Gino Ltd., lead all the way to offshore companies controlled by a former major politician in the country.

      Caption: Company Registration Form of UCG Agro

      Caption: Company Registration Form of Inter Trading Company
      Moreover, Clearsave’s employee names and email addresses can’t be trusted, as none of them are genuine. Its employees’ names are constantly changing based on the platform to avoid getting identified.
      However, digging through MG Capital resulted in a few of its employees being ID’d, with the HR members including Lika Agasieva and Tamar Koriauli and office manager Data Topuria.
      The people working at MG Capital are not new to such shady business. They have been operating for a long time now.
      MG CAPITAL: AVOIDING IDENTIFICATION
      As to how MG Capital has avoided getting its identity revealed, the company rented virtual processing network (VPN)/proxy IP addresses from third parties.
      Tracing its VPN address led to the identification of UK company Congent Communication and Israel group Mornex Ltd.
      These two resold the use of the IP address to MG Capital, and while their services comply with legal standards, they may need to implement stricter know-your-customer (KYC) measures to avoid accommodating questionable businesses like MG Capital in the future.
      In addition to Clearsave, other unregulated brokers are believed to have ties with MG Capital. The company is currently handling operations of Dcmarket, whose URL appeared to be similar to ClearSave’s.
      Dcmarket is registered under the firm Softonic Ltd., although no such business has been found at the Commonwealth of Dominica. That raises the possibility that Dcmarket could only be a rebranded Clearsave trading platform.

  2. To qualify for a refund, you will have to register an account with Jubiter.com and need to deposit money into jubiter to change bitcoin into cash to be withdrawn. Does this sound familiar to anyone at all?

    1. i am asking to do so, have you gotten your money back? I was asking to register the an account with Payeer.com and need to deposit into Payeer to change bitcoin into cash to be withdrawn.

      Please email me

  3. clearsave are scam they don’t have direct number you can call their office on, the number they are using in the UK are coded is not UK number. They just scamed me of £6,200 no one to call or report to they are all scam working together. Both men and Women don’t be deceived. There platform are fake. There contact number is 0000000000. All this i did not see before joining there fake trading. Please don’t sign up with clearsave they are fake trading company.

  4. tak,ja straciłem 9000 funtów,byłem idiotą
    ———————————
    yes i lost 9,000 pounds i was an idiot

    1. This is a very genius scammers! i almost got it scammed but i will have to contact my bank to get that deposit i paid to them! its really bad how they trick you into things this company should be reported!

  5. i have invested £7800 and cant get this back

  6. Jarosław Marek Wolski

    Hi guys. Don’t invest any money. I lost 20.000 £ . It is scam and crmi. I don’t want to be happen to you ☹

    1. Mohammed amin Hussain

      Hi marek wolski. What do u do that u invested £20000 with this company.

    2. Yes I also have been scammed, did you ever get your money back?

  7. I was told I needed to top my account up by £500, clearsave tried to take £2500 off me to start with, that was declined, he then made 4 attempts of £500 to which 3 worked and the 4th declined,
    I tried to stop him after the first £500, but he was quick and took 2 more, I’m down by £1500 plus my original investment, after he couldn’t steal no more payments, he put the phone down and never rang back and all the numbers he rang from DON’T exist.
    He was a Indian who called himself David Simmons
    Stay well away from this company, there nothing but thieves.

  8. DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT INVEST WITH CLEARSAVE. THEY ARE VERY RUDE AND IMPATIENT AND WILL RAISE THEY VOICE ON YOU IF YOU DECIDE TO CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT. BUT TRUST ME, THEY’RE ACTUALLY NOT LEGIT. They hang up the call on me and started being defensive when I started calling them a scam. And when I said I wanted a refund, he said “I don’t care about your money of 250 euro because right now Bitcoin in better in the market” and said to wait for next week for it and the one who called me was such a liar and whenever you call him a liar or a scam he will start being defensive and will raise his voice and even said to me “you’re wasting my precious time, when you close the account we don’t care about you anymore”.

  9. Hi,
    Paid $250 £190 this morning, invoice emailed to me with a completely wrong name a Don Harrison. Tommorow I have an advisor ringing me back to get me up and running checking documents passport, utility bill etc.
    After reading everyone’s reviews I will not go ahead. Hope I can get my £190 back.
    Thanks for everyones reviews. This could have been a lot worse and lost everything
    Kind regards
    Serena

    1. Did you manage to get your deposit back?

      Thanks

      1. I am asking this also .

  10. Hi i was conned into the scam too, i answered to an ad that looked legit, with screaming teenagers happy to see six figure number on their mobile phones. Admittedly i was gullable as i thought that it was real plus their was a promise that trading would be done for me so i thought let me give it a go. Stupidly i fell for the trick, i sent my ID documents and invested about £186.00 but what was more concerning was that my mentor talked me into giving him remote access to my computer and my personal files which really should have been a NO NO. Once i was set up and all ready to go my gut feeling was telling me something wasnt right about this company and i had a strong sense not to continue on, so I shut the account down. Fllowing these actions I tried to withdraw my funds from the wallet but the system would not allow me to do so, i sent several emails requesting a refund but so the called team would not respond. All i can say is safeguard yourself and your money from these people as they are unscrupulous and they do not care about you, duping you or how loosing your money is going to make you feel. Look after yourself.

  11. Apparently I have a huge amount in US Dollars but can’t withdraw unless I have a certain amount in my bank. Why? So they can take that as well? Mirror amounts is not a legal thing. How do I claim my money back then…

    1. Please don’t make the mistake of trusting MG Capital (https://mgcapitalscam.com/) or any businesses associated with them (https://funds-recovery.com/blacklist/clearsave/). They’ll just going to take your money and you won’t be able to get it back. If you did though, I suggest contacting your bank or the local authorities right away.

  12. I invested £190 in November 2019… today I’ve been told that it’s worth £ 9600 … but they’ve closed the account and handed it to a withdrawal agent.??
    I’ve tried to access the account… no luck there.. so what does one do in this situation?

    1. Wow, they have this scam down patt, reading all the comments its a dommino effect, apparently I have £15000 in account waiting for me to get out but I gotta put 7500 iin to get it out..
      So convincing. Apparently your got 24 hours to do transaction, when I said no dont worry about it, she got time extended. Glad I done some investigation.

  13. Cannot be trusted. I tried to look up mg capital online https://mgcapitalscam.com/ but it looks like it doesn’t have a website which is kind of shady. If you guys don’t know yet, mg capital operates clearsave.io which is a broker that has been called a “scam” by many people who weren’t able to get their money back.

  14. ClearSave is anything but reliable or legit. What it is a scam broker who will rip you off for more money. take note of the name MG Capital too because this is the company that owns clearsave. Check these sites https://www.forexbrokerz.com/brokers/clearsave-review https://mgcapitalscam.com/

    Investigation continues: MG Capital participants
    Who is participating and Why?
    Unfortunately, every single scam has its participants in it. People of different backgrounds and professional experiences play massive roles in it. However, some individuals participating in fraudulent activities end up being simple employees doing their job, unbeknownst to the consequences they bring to the table and the scam victims’ lives.
    Scam companies and scam brokers work in highly complicated and intricate ways. In fact, as we’ve talked about before, in our earlier investigation articles, these people try to spread out their activities to hide them even more.
    We will start with those participants, for whatever reason, willing to take the phones and lure clients, the Brokers, and their employees. It is a common practice in scam brokerages to make their employees have an alternative work identity. Every Broker working for an unregulated trading platform will give a fake or stage name and contact details such as an email, for example, [email protected]

    Scam tricks: How they play with people and their identities.
    So, let us have a look at Dwight and a few of his colleagues; below is a list of stages name associated with clearsave.io that you need to be aware of:
    Alice Larsen / Alex Turly / Alexander Schultz / Alfie Meyer / Anne Dovac / Ashley Sims /Basil Bishop / Carla Jensen / Daniel Silverman & William Grant / Denny Leis / Dwight Stanson / Edward Finch / Emily Hoover / Elena Mayer / George Evans / Helen Green / Hugo Kieffer / John Price / Jason Peters / Jeremy Hill / Kimberley Ross / Lena Bauer / Leo Manne / Levi Carter / Lilly Collins / Lucas Jansen / Maria Stolz / Maximilian Batista / Michael Morgan / Mila Durst / Miles Olsen / Milla Dvorak / Natalie Keller / Nancy Skinner / Nathan Reed / Nero Wilson / Robert Reus / Roger Thompson / Simon Hassler / Sonny Bennet / Sven Wagner / Ted Waters / Thomas Green / Thomas Hermann / Victor Hidalgo
    We understand that stage names are changed pretty quickly. This fact, yet again, is done to hide the illegal activities better and for the sake of future scams. This way, fraudsters can ensure no one has a long and detailed list of the information relevant to each person, including their Full real names, Facebook profiles, home addresses, real mobile numbers, or government identification number and photos. However, our well-trained investigation team was able to find a lot of information. In fact, through employment records, we know that the HR or recruiter of MG capital is Lika A and Tamar K., and the person running that office is Dato Topuria.
    However nefarious their actions, the brokers are just the money funnel for a complicated web of companies use to move their ill-gotten gains offshore, which are controlled by a small number of individuals.

    We established via the proxy IP that MG Capital LLC operates Clearsave.io, but who owns MG Capital LLC? Let meet the Director and 100% owner – Ioseb Mgeladze. We have seen here in the Extract from the registry of Legal Entities from the Ministry of Justice of Georgia (Pdf. MG capital).
    Who are the people that are allegedly behind the MF Capital?
    Ioseb Mgeladze (AKA Soso Mgeladze) (pdf. Ioseb Mgeladze) is the main connection between a web of Georgian companies leading to offshore entities controlled by Georgia’s former top political figures. Let take a look at this web in more detail.
    Ioseb Mgeladze has direct affiliations with the following companies registered in Georgia – MG Capital LLC (LTD Em-ji Kapitali), Universal Capital Group LLC (LTD Universal Kapital Grupi), UGC Agro LLC (LTD Iu-si-ji Agro), UCG green Power LLC (LTD Iu-si-ji Grin Paueri) Inter trading Company (Inter Trending Company), Gino Ltd (Jino Ltd). You will see when you take a moment and look closely at all these companies. It will become apparent how they are all inter-connected by Director, controlling Partners, legal addresses, email addresses.
    In this list, we see the connections unfold. From MG Capital LLC to Universe Capital Group LLC. As seen in the links below.
    Universal Capital Group LLC – I/N 205273336 Director Ioseb Mgeladze (Pdf. Universal capital group LLC) Owned 100% Redeli Management ltd currently.

    A deeper look and the documentation online shows that before 2012 there was a significant role of RYLF management SA as owner or the partner, then beginning in 2012, we see Ioseb Mgeladze become Director and Redeli Management ltd come on the scene
    It continues…
