I am from Singapore, here is my story.
I put money US$13000.00 in a brokerage firm in London named Oxnard Trading Solutions www.oxnardts.com
The account was manage by this brokerage firm, and all trading executed by them, they have offered a $13000 bonus to match what I have in my account. Mr George Cage promise I have regular income with him trading for me,
After one month of trading by Mr George Cage, broker Mr. George Cage go on leave and my account was pass to a Senior Broker Mr. Max.
Mr. Max went on a crazy trading spree, he place trades above and beyond my cash value, and trade when sideways to margin call and I was angry, I ask him why he over extend my credit many times I call him, and kept doing, he start asking me for more money of US$3000, I do not have any, all my saving was in the account, I told him I will try, he loss big on my account and I was left with only $7979.35 of my savings.
I decide to close my account with Oxnard Trading Solution and make call to their company but no answer and I send them the email as attach which is my local time 09.27 am (01.27 am GMT)
I received a call at 08.00 am London Time from the broker Mr. Max, he tell me to deposit $3000 into my account, which I told him I don’t have money. He then tell me he open a few position in my account again and now my account has over extended my cash value $7979.35.
He threaten me that I have to deposit the $3000 as he requested or he will immediately take away all the bonus US$13000 supporting my margin in the current position that he have opened and that will caused all position to closed premature which will result US$9795.05 loss.
I told him I don’t have money and I ask him why he open so many trade position, and also let him know I don’t want to work with him anymore, because he open trade position above my available limit.
He became angry on what I said to him and told me to say goodbye to all my money.
I logon to the Trade system later and found he removed all my bonus and all position opened by him was forced closed at 08.13 am (GMT) because of margin limit see attach screen shot of my Trading account
I feel robbed and cheated of all my hard earn savings.
Is this a commercial crime?
Please help me, what can I do to recover all my hard earn savings.

You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
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://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-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. More than £10,000 then you WILL need to instruct a Solicitor in the UK to issue proceedings on your behalf and pursue the claim
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
