Golden Markets / Start Markets / return of deposit made under duress

2 United States Review updated:

I responded to an online advertisement on Facebook, saying that this company was supported by "Dragons Den" as an approved British investment start up company. I was filling the form on online when someone from the company phoned and talked to me continously whilst ensuring the money was taken from my credit card.

I have tried phoning, emailing every day for ten days. I just want my £250 back. I do not want this product /service. I was missold. Richard from their company has now emailed to say I am not covered by UK Law as they are trading distantly online. I have checked UK Law, and this is false information as well.

How can I get my money back without sending them my passport and home identity documents, which would be giving my identity to strangers?

    I paid £250 for a bit coin trading deposit. I had been online and a man phoned me whilst I was online, checking I was making the deposit. I realised as soon as I put the phone down that this was not the product I thought I was buying, which had been advertised as British, from "The Dragons Den". The man on the phone kept assuring me it was the product advertised, but it was not.

    It has been over ten days now, I have called and emailed. They have now told me I need to provide passport, house bills and copies of both sides of my credit card to get a refund. I quoted the UK Law 14 day cooling off period, but Richard from their company is saying that distance trading is not covered by UK Law.

    How can I get a refund for this missold service please?

    Thank you everyone. I gave in and gave all my details, and finally got the deposit back. I keep checking my credit reports to make sure my data has not been used for a loan or anything, and seems to be ok. It took months to get the money back. I do now get calls from other Bitcoin companies, but tell them to go away. I feel so sorry for all the innocent people who have lost money, it is terrible. Facebook should vet these ads before they are published. Horrible experience.

    The FCA and SFC reported this company on their blacklist of online forex companies to shy away from. It is sad that a lot of people invest before seeing reviews like that. I am glad I have gotten my funds back from Binary options swindlers. Thanks to the reliable company I hired!!! info [email protected], highly skilled and effective.

    Golden Markets are scammers. Keep at them but whatever you do don’t send information nor sign any forms. If you do keep pestering them and as the sum was only 250 you might be successful in getting it back.

    My Dad was a victim of this investment scam both pension and Binary option. I saw him crumble from having so much money to having nothing. It all started with an advert on Face book displaying the UK dragons den team trying to outbid each other to invest with the new UK company dealing in a bitcoin tool known as Golden markets. He lost all his hard earned savings to them and several ones such as HBC broker, Speartrader and Stox Market. He almost lost it If not for a referral from a close friend to the family that introduced us to {http:// www.} we hired the RESCUE DIAL FINANCIAL CONSULTANCY AND They were able to run a forensic check and traced the whole transactions from the scratch. No one should be deprived of her happiness because of such mistakes. Binary option and similar investments is a No go area if you really want an advice from me.
