So... One day we decided to start our own forex brokerage - we added quotes to MT4 and launched a promotion. Easy!
Next, we hired customer support - few girls to answer the phone. Sure, we hired one guy to the trade desk too.
Then we created a webpage and put advertising everywhere! Even on radio, saying we give bonus on every deposit.
Opening depo’s from 20 bucks, leverage 1:5000. People got hooked.
Big deposits were treated with caution, cause we didn’t want people making huge profits and then withdraw all of their cash: the only thing that could make us go bust. So we’re watching closely them.
If someone didn’t plan to keep his money with us for long, we could make their accounts negative, on purpose.
One day, trade desk calls me & say: - Greedy Tom! - What? - We have a tough cookie up here, client that withdraws big sums.
I checked the statistics - this guy has been our clients for ages, always gaining and withdrawing profits. “Geez,”i said! We must purge his account before we go bankrupt.
And then... He deposits $10，000. 10k!!
The guy was sure he can trust us! 10k!This is even bigger than the sum of all other depos made that week.
The guy was a winner of some trading contest. A real champion!
He was trading with us slowly at first, made several deposits & withdraws to try out... Thank God we did not notice him before!
And now seems he deposited everything he had!
Poor guy...he was opening positions...putting stop losses & take profits... Take profit!
I told trade desk: increase the spreads as much as you can, let’s show him the real forex.
So all the quotes started to fluctuate.
All the orders got closed! Accounts started getting margin calls. Everyone lost. EVERYONE!
Then a complete mess started: clients calling, writing to support.
But we answer that everything is according to the law. Law of the Dominican Republic.
We bought a corporate account there for 100 bucks. I have never visited the country, we just uploaded some fake photo of the villa from DR on our website.
But the champion kept writing us: “Scammers! I will report you! I will sue you!”
And send us scans of his statement...kinda threatening us. Moreover, posted on our forum page that we have stolen his money.
In our own forum. The one that we manage, so we just deleted all his posts.
I told him that we are dealing with this situation.
“Did you earn a lot that day?” - about $300k. BTW, some of the clients even haven’t noticed anything, so they made their depos that day again.
Some became our debtors... But we forgave all of their debts. And asked everyone to assess their risk tolerance more carefully.
Then we offered 200% bonus for their next deposit.
And for the guy, we reduced the commissions to zero and kept telling him that we are on his case. He believed us and made another deposit.
