    Hedgestone Group, I think its a scam 17th Apr 17 at 3:24 PM
    Hi, my mum responded to a facebook advert for hedgestone group which says its a forex trading site. They were happy to take 200 from her account using the long number on her card. Then when we tried to access the account they wanted us to verify our identity. They requested coulour copys of her passport and copies of her credit card front and back and a bill, they said this was to prevent money laundering. If that was true then why take the money first. Mum decided to empty her account so they couldnt take the money because she became suspicios(she tranfered it to my account). I put the money back because I was worried the bank will still pay them then charge her for being overdrawn. We have contacted our banks fraud team and cancelled the card so they cant take any more money. They said we should be able to get the money back. Just thought Id post this to warn people

    Maybe redact the spammer's email address when quoting. Otherwise the responses preserve the spam long after the post has been deleted.

    I lost my investment with 72 Options binary brokers. I wasted so much time hiring a lawyer and going through several legal battle, It was all a waste of time and money. Eventually I hired a Professional who helped me with my Charge back, I recouped all my funds invested and the interest accrued to it. Beware of binary options broker and invest your funds wisely

    Why would you need a professional to help you do a credit card chargeback?

    Anyone thinking of PMing Katiecor asking for the name of this "professional" should exercise great caution.
