Customer Question

I live in Ontario Canada. I bough binary options from a company called binaryoptionsxo.com that have their office address listed as Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England but their registered business is in The Marshall Islands , I made a number of trades over the internet with them. To make the story short after I decided to close the account (with over $4000.00us) in it and to withdraw the money they refuesed.
I tried time and time again to withdraw the money but they refuesed to send it to me,so I would like to get my money through the courts. The big question is Can I do this over the internet or otherwise using the small claims courts system in London?.

Ok - I would do that.

You also need to report it to your local Police.

You can also issue a County Court claim here in the UK:

If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.

The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.

If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Re: Order #16589422-690 The answer I received from You recommended Logging in to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk so I did that and was disappointed to see that one of the questions stated, that to be qualified to use the service you Had To Have a UK address.
As I stated in my original questionnaire I live in Ontario Canada.
Please let me know how I get around that in order to use the program?.

Sir/Madam The 'phone number you gave me (1(###) ###-#### did not work so please give me another one. Remember I live in Ontario Canada.

You can issue a claim using form n1

https://formfinder.hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/n1-eng.pdf

Send that to the court and they can issue the claim for you.
