KontoFX are a total CON ..... THEY WILL STEAL ALL YOUR MONEY.

KontoFX are a total CON ..... THEY WILL STEAL ALL YOUR MONEY.

I placed around €1200 with these Scummy criminals.
Over a period of a few weeks, I managed to withdraw a few hundred, but they refused any more saying the money is in active use etc ..... endless stupid excuses for what is essentially a scam operation.
The phone numbers used seem to originate in the UK, but they are actually coming from either Hungary, Estonia or Russia - if you put money into this company > YOU WILL LOOSE IT ALL
AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE THE PLAGUE.
The phone numbers used seem to be;
0044 2039616348
0044 2039616363
0031 687351823
Name used (to me) was BRIAN DAVIES.
Other names that seem to be associated with this SCAM OUTFIT are;
Mark SCHUSTER
Edison GREENBERG
Adrian MATTHIAS
Jonathon ANDERSON
Peter nelson
David jam
Dan Mayer
Alex Voss
Caroline Lenz
Shawn Leroy
Aaron Johnson
Sean Foster
Nick Hanson
Edison Lewis
Andy Lewis
Martin Roth
Allan Yada
Johannes Meckler
Vivian Pears
Chris McGuire
Danik ?
Isahia ?
Dante ?
samantha ?
…………………………….
Plus, I imagine, a load of other FALSE names that may or may not be genuine > but all are USELESS anyhow.
There E-mail contact address´s DO NOT EXIST
There is no other way of contacting them either.
IF YOU PASS MONEY TO THEM > YOU WILL HAVE LOST THAT MONEY.
STAY AWAY FROM THESE SCUMMY FRAUDSTERS - they are not genuine in any way with always the same scheme where you make profits as long as you keep adding up more money but soon as you want to withdraw they make you lose the money with negative trades and commissions until nothing is left and claim it was a bad day on the market or it is the investors fault because he withdrew money from the market and so on, it always ends with an empty account. be aware that they don't have a license to trade so it is a demo account on a nice website topped up whit the right amount to keep you interested and investing and to hide that the money was stolen in the minute it got transferred to them
Some other names of the same company;
UproFX
Knonfx
They're Hungarian owned, registered in Estonia and likely run from RUSSIA, so once your money is in their hands, you have virtually zero chance of getting it back.
They're unlicensed. They know about as much about trading as the average 5-year-old. That doesn't matter though as once they have your money they're doing about as much trading as the average 5-year-old too. Zero.
There are dozens of accounts from people who have lost a small fortune with KontoFX online. Some well-hidden, some out in the open.
These people have probably been swayed by positive reviews which as previously stated are fake, or at best really biased reviews from businesses that have a financial interest in getting you to deposit (affiliates).
Don't fall for the KontoFX scam because you've heard that crypto is the next gold rush - these guys certainly aren't the ones that will make you any money from the crypto boom and they should be avoided at ALL COSTS.
BEWARE also from these fake news ads about Dragons Den, Shark Tank, Höhle der Löwen, Elon Musk, and the bitcoin trader/revolution they are all scam and are only designed to lure you towards these fraudulent brokers
Remember if something seems too good to be true, it probably is …. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
Try withdrawing one penny and see how nice they really are !!
My review will be constantly up-dated and as long as it remains – it just proves what I have said above is true. I would willingly remove a review if I found it was wrong in any way …… so, as your reading this, nothing has changed and they are still ripping people off left, right & centre.
