Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know where they are located, is it the UK?
No. I am in South Korea, although my permanent home is in the UK. Working on contract until end April.
Ok, the people who have been trading are they based in the uk or Korea?
here is a comment that I wrote to a scam site about them.My experience of Options24hours.com is one of horror. I received a cold call, but as I had used Binary Options sites previously I suspected that they were in the habit of passing on information of past customersAnyway, I was persuaded to deposit $500 to allow me to show them what they could do, and fair enough, I got an “insured” trade which won, and this took my account up to $850. As these “Insured” trades were only available for new deposits I was again persuaded to deposit $2,000, which again became $3700 after another successful trade. Now my account was at $4550 for a deposit of only $2,500. It sounded too good to be true, but I was promised that anytime I wished to withdraw money it would be returned to my card account within 48 hours. I had no need to withdraw the money at the time. I was then persuaded to boost my account once again, so deposited another $2,000, which once again traded successfully to boost my account further. I was then asked to take one final step to reach “Platinum” status, which would earn me five trades per week, as well as the “Insured” trade which came along with the deposit. I went along with it, gave them permission to withdraw $10,500 from my account. Unfortunately, due to an “error” on their part, they withdrew a total of $15,000. When I pointed out their “error” they apologised and asked my to make out a Withdrawal request for the additional $4,500 which they had taken without my authority, assuring me that it would be in my account within 72 hours. Meanwhile, the “insured” trade went ahead, winning as usual and my account was just short of $40,000, including my additional $4,500. I went on vacation then and was out of contact, but I checked my bank regularly, looking for the $4,500 coming back into my account, but it never arrived. On my return, I began sending e-mails to query the delay on the return of my money, and also completing a deposit form which they requested. They responded confirming the receipt of my deposit form, but did not respond in regard to any query I made on the delay in the return of my money. I sent e-mails to the trader who was in charge of my account and whom had always spoken to me on the phone, and also to their support team, and to their accounts team, but did not receive one response. By this time my concerns were fearing the worst, so I went into my account on 20th Oct and requested the withdrawal of the remainder of my funds which amounted to $37,085. I checked my account once more today to see what had happened (to see if my withdrawal had been approved) and was horrified to see that only $585 remained in my account. On checking my account records, I found that my withdrawal request for $37,085 had been “Cancelled” and on the same day they had continually made trades of $5,000 from my account, losing on all except two occasions, until such time as my account was depleted to the sum of $585 which still remains in my account. I have made a further withdrawal request for the remaining sum, but I rate my chances of receiving anything from them as nil…or possibly less.So, beware…. DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER USING Options24Hours
YEs but I need to know whether they are based in the UK or not?
I have sent in information regarding my account, but have heard nothing back. why is my question closed, as I have not received an answer, only a question to which I have responded to?
No, they are not based in the UK, somewhere about LA in the USA is the home of their website.
My email address is *****@******.***, but your system does not seem to want to accept that as it says another customer has it. This is my email address, and it does not belong to anyone else.
In reply to your further question, it is hard to know where they trade from, but apparently their server is based near LA in the USA
The above link tells me that the site is based in the USA
