Hello i have a problem with a company known as FM Trader

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

I have contacted the organisation several times yes and been promised a refund of monies in my account but it is months now since my request and still nothing they deal in binary trading

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was foolish to go into this scheme however upon their request I arranged the required paperwork with my Banking Institution which i was assured was all that was required to have money refunded
