    I’m using this post to make sure no one makes the same mistakes I made and also help anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation and lost money to scammers like these. I was contacted by an “investor” of this fraudulent company (HALTRUSTINVEST) who invited me to invest with them, he persuaded me by showing me possible earnings. Initially we invested a few hundred worth of bitcoin, which then turned to a few thousands, about $18,000. They then convinced us to invest more money hoping to increase our profit margin. It all started to look bad when we asked for a partial withdrawal of our profits, they became hostile and started to request for documents which seemed unnecessary and a complete time waster. Then the company said that due to massive profits gained ($113,000), we had to pay a 10% fee on the winnings ($11k), a withdrawal fee ($3k) and a VAT, tax and insurance fee ($2k). When asked how they calculate all this they got very defensive and hostile and refused to answer to questions and insisted that we pay the fees to get our withdrawal.
    This would have been the most disappointing experience of my life, if I didn’t come across and work with a Recovery Pro who made sure I recovered all bitcoin that belonged to me. You can write me if you have lost anything to this company or you have found yourself in a similar situation and have been deceived, you will recover everything you lost; Rachelmillr4 {at} gmail, com

    The key is to understand how it really works and who is right to work with. I was losing funds to a broker and by the time i realised it, i had already lost $52000 which was over half of my savings. I met a friendly trader and she directed me to the recovery agent Mr Bart Kasch. He helped me recover all my money, every penny. Referred him to friends and colleagues already, you can contact him if you need help at [email protected]

    From what I read this is a common trick, tempting investors in with just a few hundred dollars then slowly but surely increasing their investments until they go for the big one. Then, all of a sudden what was previously a company that was in regular contact will go quiet and getting your money out has for so many people proven to be near impossible.

    Forex trading is not a game. It has so much risk. Every trader should learn basic knowledge about forex before entering into the market. Lack of knowledge can put them into a big problem. knowledge about forex can be learned in many ways. But the best way of learning forex is to open a demo account. This can help him to get knowledge, by which he can at least make a profit slowly. When I was new in this market, I gathered knowledge by opening a demo account in TP Global FX. It helps me to know about forex, about trading. I also know what is good for me and what is not. I am still trading with them. They are really helpful.

    While I totally agree with your idea of gaining knowledge before actually investing your funds, "gameplay" is not always a reflection of what you would do in the real world with your own money. Yes, it will give you an insight into what to expect but don't automatically assume it will be as easy playing with real money as it is playing with fake money.

    All of you replying to this thread (excluding me) are either part of the scam or too dump. Are you guys that naive to think the post is a real experience? The last line is the real scam. The thread is a post by scammers. Be warned.

    Forex trading is not for lazy people or people who cannot follow the trading plan. It is not difficult to motivate yourself to trade and create a good trading plan on the Forex market, and it is difficult to research and stick to the plan. Most traders fall from the wagon; after all, they trade when there is no trade, forgetting about their trading plan and playing with their money on the markets.
