Let me give you a typical scenario in this respect and you tell me whether it’s similar.
You invest an amount of money in this scheme. They trade it and you end up with a huge fund.
In order for you to withdraw money which you have allegedly accrued as a result of the trading, they want more money from you. You don’t want to pay that money.
They then stop replying to emails or telephone calls and eventually under pressure, you get a small amount of money out and you can’t get the bulk of the money or the balance of your investment.
Is it something like that?
Where is this company based?
How much money did you initially invest?
Where are you based?
I’m sorry to have to tell you that you have probably been the victim of a fraud scam. These Binary Options schemes are mostly unregulated. We have had many such questions on here which is why I was able to give you the typical scenario.
I would certainly now refer the matter immediately to the police.
You can of course if you court proceedings against the organisation, issuing them in New Zealand and then enforce them in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, you may find that you can’t find the company or the individuals or the company and the individuals have long gone by the time you get the judgement and are able to enforce it.
It really is a police matter, sorry.
