They are located in Cyprus UK. They regulated by the Malta Authorities. They told me that the monies I invested were guaranteed by the bonus amount they put in my account. They traded until all funds were lost, they asked me to invest more so that they could recover all I had lost. They never told me that I would not recover anything at all.

Thank you.

You state "They are located in Cyprus UK."

So you mean they are located in Cyprus, and you are located in the UK.
