5Capital Review - is it scam or safe?

5Capital review - Is 5capital.com scam or good forex broker?

RATING: 1 / 6 REVIEWS 5Capital
5Capital is an offshore broker. Your money is not safe.

RECOMMENDED FOREX BROKERS


5Capital is a unregulated broker, based in Bulgaria, with a focus on the crypto currency market. The broker is a market maker and they openly admit in their Client Agreement, that this might be a cause for a conflict of interest. So if you are considering investing with them better read this review first.

5Capital Advantages:

 

We always do our best to come up with any possible benefit a broker might offer to their clients, and start our reviews with that. Unfortunately with 5Capital there are simply no positive sides. 

 

5Capital Disadvantages:

 

Nor regulated

 

5Capital is owned by 21 Wolfs LTD, but is operated by Grow Track Media LTD. Both companies are based in Bulgaria, but unfortunately they are not licensed by the local Financial Supervision Commission (FSC) or by any other financial regulator from another EU country like the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK or the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) – a legal requirement for any broker wants to target clients in the European Union.

 

Be aware that depositing funds with unregulated brokers like 5Capital is extremely risky, because far too often such brokers simply happen to be involved in scam. 

 

Properly regulated brokers on the other hand are safe, because of the strict regulatory regime they are subjected to. Regulators like the FCA in the UK and CySEC in Cyprus for example require all supervised brokers to file regular reports, to allow external audits, to maintain at all times at least 730 000 EUR as a minimum operational capital, to keep their clients funds in a segregated, trust account and even to participate in client compensation schemes, basically insuring all trading accounts. 

 

For example with a FCA broker your insurance will cover the first 85 000 GBP in your account, which will be payed back to you even if your broker files for bankruptcy. So here you may check our list of brokers regulated in the UK:

Unspecified fees and charges

 

In their Terms and Conditions 5Capital say they will charge you a commission on every trade. The commission, however is not specified in the agreement and that surely is not a usual practice. See for yourself:

 

 

And besides, if you have deposited your funds with a bank wire transfer, unless you trade a certain amount you will be charged with 4,5% of your deposit or even more.

 

Market maker

 

And that is another worrisome detail. 5Capital admits that it is acting as a market maker – a fact that in certain cases might result in a conflict of interest. See for your self:

 

 

Bear in mind that a market makers makes money whenever you lose and vice versa. So it is more than unethical if a broker, which acts as a market maker, offers to manage your account or even just to give trading advises. 

 

MetaTrader4 not available

 

5Capital offers a web based trading platform not comparable to platforms like the MetaTrader4, which has become a industry standard. 

 

 

MT4 is a highly reliable trading platform, featuring numerous modifiable market indicators and trading bots, called Expert Advisros, with which you can effortlessly run automated trading sessions. On top of that MT4 has an excellent pack of advanced charting tools as well, so here you may check our list of brokers, supporting the platform:

 

>>MT4 Brokers<<

 

A limited number of trading instruments

 

Although in their presentation 5Capital say to be offering CFDs on indices, stocks and commodities, along their selection of crypto coins, when we opened their web based trading platform the only instruments available were CFDs on 8 crypto pairs with several major coins - Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, EOS and Augur. So if you really want to trade crypto assets, here we may suggest that you try one of our regulated brokers, offering bitcoin CFDs:

Few payment methods

 

Although 5Capital has the logos of a number of popular e-wallets on its web page, among which NetellerSkrill Sofort, QIWI Wallet, CaroPay and WebMoney, as it turned out, when we registered a trading account, the only payment methods available were cards like VISA and MasterCard, bank wire and bitcoins. And if paying with bitcoins looks like a good option to you, here you may also check our list of brokers accepting bitcoins:

 

>>Forex Brokers Accepting Bitcoin<<

 

Conclusion:

 

As we already established, 5Capital is a unregulated broker with rather limited credibility. And as usual in such cases we will repeat our general advice to trade only with brokers, licensed and authorized by reputable financial institutions such as the FCA in the UK, CySEC in Cyprus or way not the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Scam do not use

Iv had three workers with no heads up that i would be transferred to each worker, with two workers saying that they were in-charge of my account and they both at times yelled swore and tried to intimidated me stating that the other worker didn't even exist. SERIOUSLY!.I sent the company emails with a code of 4 numbers so that maybe i could work out who was really my worker.Both contacted me at the times i emailed but neither told me or would tell me the four digit numbers again to the point of them abusing and trying to intimidate me.( All i was trying to do was work out what the hell was going on and for them to prove who they claimed to be ) With the second worker he stated that the Australian $250 wasnt enough to really give it a shot and that $1000 American would be more beneficial. I understood what he was getting at but i was also bemused and annoyed and stated this to the worker? as the agreement and what was advertised was $250 Australian to start up and start to trade.So i said each fortnight id put in $250 American currency until i reached $1000 American ( Stupid me). Over the course of a month i put in $500 American .Obviously the above aforementioned was all unravelling to the point that i was fed up and wanted out.Iv tried to get my money back and I have sent the company 20 or more emails to contact me plus the last three nights asking them to call me all with only 1 reply which didn't help with anything.There Live chat wont even reply when i know they have read my messages. They obviously loved taking my hard earned money but are totally reluctant to give any of it back. They declined my withdrawal and documents that were in the system that had to be there before i could even start are no longer there and are having to redo to hope i get my money back.......

Betrug kan man sich nur anschliesen

Endlich kann man mal über das Thema 5 Capital sprechen haben durch das Netz hier sehr viele geschädigte kennen gelernt ,es war sehr schwer darüber wegzukommen denn was einen hier versprochen wird ist nur Luft habe 10000Dollar verloren ,obwohl wie hier schon geschrieben war Geld zum Auszahlen zur Verfügung stand wurde dies absichtlich durch die Broker Baker und Co vernichtet, kann nur jeden Raten zu versuchen sein Geld so schnell wie möglich aus diesen Portal zu ziehen denn auch die AGB wie oben geschrieben zeigen das Geld von anderen Kunden zum Löcher schließen genutzt wird .
Hoffen das wir jetzt mehr geschädigte getroffen haben gegen dieses Portal 5 Capital vorzugehen.

Die Broker sind sich auch nicht zu schade Sie schliesen dann auch gleich mal das Konto hier ist einen grossen Missbrach im Spiel ,klar muss man auch erwähnen Sie sind jetzt aus der Schweiz wegweil hier grosser Ärger im Hause stand .


Translated by Google:

Finally you can talk about the topic of 5 capital through the net here many got hurt, it was very difficult to get away because what is promised here is only air lost $ 10000, although as already written was money to pay off If this was purposely destroyed by the brokers Baker and Co, just any installer can try to withdraw his money as soon as possible from this portal because even the terms and conditions as written above show the money used by other customers to close holes.
Hope that we have met more injured now against this portal 5 Capital proceed.

The brokers are also not too bad They then also closed the same account here is a big mishap in the game, clearly you have to mention you are now away from Switzerland because here was great trouble in the house.

5Capital - Kleine Betrag ohne Erfolg


Wurde im Netz auf 5 Capital aufmerksam, sah sehr vielversprechend aus der Internetauftritt. Ich kam in Verbindung mit einem Mitarbeiter, der rief mich fast jeden Tag an ob ich denn nicht mal 250 € einzahlen wolle, lang hin und her ich machte dies. Geld wurde auch in der ersten Zeit mehr dann wieder Anrufe von einen Herrn Baker ob nicht mehr einzahlen 5000€, er könne in mehr Gewinne mit einer größeren Summe erzielen, sagt nein, es ging hin und her täglich.
Das vorhandene Geld setzte ich auf auszahlen, wie da steht in 7 Tagen leider wurde es nie ausgezahlt, ich schaute auf mein Konto der Broker hat alles in minus gesetzt es war nichts mehr vorhanden.
Anrufe täglich ob ich nicht welches Geld wieder einzahlen möchte, er könne nichts dafür das automatische System wäre schuld, muss hier schon maßlos lachen, die Herren zocken voll ab und denken die Menschen sind dumm und machen wieder.
Lange im Netz gelesen und gesucht kam man auf eine Seite Forex hier wurde ich dann voll überrascht
Ich bin auf eine Betrug Firma reingefallen.
Lasst die Finger weg von 5 Capital hier bekommt ihr keinen Euro wieder.

Small amount without success


Was noticed in the network on 5 Capital, looked very promising from the website. I got in touch with a coworker, who called me almost every day if I did not even want to pay 250 €, long back and forth I did this. Money was also in the first time more then again calls from a Mr Baker whether not to deposit 5000 €, he could achieve more profits with a larger sum, says no, it went back and forth daily.
The existing money, I put on pay, as there is in 7 days, unfortunately, it was never paid, I looked at my account, the broker has set everything in minus, there was nothing left.

Calls daily if I do not want to deposit what money again, he could not fault the automatic system would be guilty, must laugh here beyond measure, the men gamble off and think the people are stupid and make again.
Long read on the net and searched one came to a page Forex here I was then completely surprised

I fell for a scam company.

Stay away from 5 Capital here you will not get a Euro again.

Diese Broker gehören sofort vom Markt, habe alles an Bilder gespeichert sollten Sie Interesse haben kann per mail alles zur Verfügung gestellt werden.

Wichtig sofort die Broker sperren damit nicht weiter Kunden reinfallen

Customer fraud in a big way
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen
These brokers have only one goal to cheat customers in the Big Still, April paid in money 4 digits all brought to profit after that you should deposit more money where you said no the capital was driven halfway from 2 weeks in minus so only 57 dollars left are left over you do not get paid.

These brokers are immediately off the market, have everything stored on images should you be interested by mail everything can be made available.

Immediately lock the brokers so that customers do not fall into the trap
