Customer Question
Hi, I traded binary options...
Hi, I traded binary options with a company called Global Trader 365. They owe me some $41230.00 USD and I am led to believe the money is being held the Dominican Republic. I have been asked to to Pay an amount of $500 USD as part of fees and taxes to release this money. I have asked them for a written guarantee that this is all I would be asked for, and they have given that guarantee in writing via email. I am still concerned that this may be part of a scam. My Question have you heard of Global Trader 365 and its insurance co YTF

This is a scam and you should not pay any money.

Hi Thanks for that . I traded with them some time ago. I was advised to trade with them by another trader. I actually made money and they did allow me to withdraw 5000 USD but not any more as they said they had replaced my money with bonuses etc.
So the amount of my own money that was used is 25000 USD. Thanks for your help. ***** *****

Good Evening

The question is what do the terms and conditions say.

You have to look at them.

Also if they are based overseas the courts here cannot do anything for you.

But do not send any money as the ones that request money to release funds are scams.
