InvestingViews.org is another broker for the unregulated pile. It is in no way an improvement to the old scammer formula. Read all about it in the following review.
The broker alleges that its parent firm based in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The offshore nation has no FX regulator in place. This is well known, yet thousands of scammer brokers continue to flock to the nation. That's because the local laws allow just about any company – fraudulent or not- to get an official registration. But a registration does not entail a license in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Therefore, the broker is not regulated there.
However, we are also told that the office address of the broker is in the UK, which means that the broker has two branching offices, suggesting a regulation in the UK. This is a longshot, and very misleading. The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines predicament we solves, and the UK one doe snot pose a problem. The fact of the matter is that the firm is neither regulated in the UK nor incorporated; the address is a fake. A registration in the UK and a regulation are mutually inclusive elements, and one cannot have one without the other. InvestingViews.org has neither.
This broker is a liar and a scam. It isn't regulated by any entity.
Investing in unregulated brokers is the digital equivalent of throwing your money away for the wind to disperse it. It’s obvious that no one would do such a thing. Go with brokers that are regulated by trustworthy organizations like the FCA or CySEC. These entities work closely with the law, enforce it when called for, and have strict requirements for those under their gaze. Not to mention that those under their jurisdiction are members of compensation funds that cover victimized clients’ losses of up to £85 000 (FCA) and €20 000 (CySEC).
After an easy registration, it turned out that we had gone through the process to no avail. The user area presented a blank link to a trading software. Moreover, we never received a confirmation email with specific credentials. One cannot argue with the facts; it seems that InvestingViews.org does not offer a trading software.
Without one, we cannot hope to be able to trade anything, not that we would have either way. The promoted trading conditions are all fake and misleading. No matter what the site claims, we have the facts- InvestingViews.org does not provide trading services. There are no applicable leverage or spreads, and neither does the broker offers tradeable assets.
As we revealed, there is no trading software available, which ultimately results in a complete make over of the broker.
In essence, without a trading software, InvestingViews.org cannot be considered a broker, for the one defining element of any FX brokerage is a trading software.
InvestingViews.org remains a typical investment scam!
INVESTINGVIEWS.ORG MINIMUM DEPOSIT
We have enough evidence to claim that all deposits will be lost if invested in this broker. That is the hard truth.
From the user area we had no access to a payment area. The depositing section was blocked, and the only way to unblock it was to provide the broker with ID verification, which is the last thing we would recommend anyone providing InvestingViews.org with.
Directly from the site, we get that the minimum deposit requirement is $5000. This is unacceptably high, and not worth the effort, more so considering the scammer nature of the broker.
Meanwhile, the available payment methods are revealed as wire transfer, credit card, and debit card.
Moreover, none of this information is trustworthy in any way. The website is not a reliable source.
DON’T PROVIDE YOUR CREDIT CARD CVV CODE
The CVV code is the one thing that separates a buyer from a product. Without it, one cannot complete a purchase, even if him/her has given all other necessary information. By giving this detail to someone else, you are essentially inviting them to use your funds for their own means. And be warned that unregulated brokers most certainly plan to do so.
DON’T PROVIDE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER AND BANK ACCOUNT VIA ANYDESK OR TEAMVIEWER
Be sure to never give AnyDesk or TeamViewer access to your PC to unverified agents. These 2 platforms allow for your PC to be taken over by a second party, oftentimes for help or guidance, but in the case of these brokers for the sole purpose of looting your bank account(s) and personal information. However, in order to do so your consent is needed, and this is the only thing standing in the scammers’ way.
INVESTINGVIEWS.ORG WITHDRAW TIME AND FEES
As we always like to point out, withdrawing from unregulated brokers is close to impossible. The shadier the firm turns out to be, the more unlikely a withdrawal is to be processed.
With that said, we have the unfortunate but ultimately futile reveal that there are no specific withdrawal details anywhere. This spell out a complete dust storm, a.k.a nothing to be said or read of withdrawals.
Beware, once more, when giving away an ID and a proof of address. Trustworthy brokers ask for these before traders can deposit to make a check up. Deceitful ones will ask for these details, using the anti-money laundering legislation as pretext, once you start asking too many questions and are getting suspicious of their activities. Understand that they will use these to build a stronger case against you in the event that you request a chargeback.
Yet again we urge readers to stay away from this broker as it will, without a doubt, never return your funds and profits. If you wish to to get smooth and efficient transactions, please visit a FCA/CySEC regulated broker, where all withdrawals are handled with care and respect.
HOW TO RECOVER
The most sound advice we could give you is to immediately file for a chargeback with you credit card company.
If you have given away your credit card details including the CVV code to the “broker” you should cancel it ASAP and check with your bank to see the damage inflicted.
Also, beware of self proclaimed “recovery” agencies or agents. These cheeky scammers promise to fix your problem and restore the lost funds. They offer their services in exchange of a small sum from your end, after which you won’t ever hear from them again.
The last line of defense for these indecent folk is more like a desperate cry: often times they will comment on reviews and cite the whole ordeal as a conspiracy initiated by competitive brokers against them; at times even claiming that reviewers are anything but objective, and that no one writes good reviews. The absurdities are limitless!
So what does InvestingViews.org offer in the end? Absolutely nothing, without a doubt. This broker is a risk and a complete failure. Do not waste your time and money in it.
