    Just commenting on your recent review upon the invertor ‘Brighter Trade’.
    Brighter Trade came up on my feed, I seen that they wanted investors to open up an account and to deposit £250.00, so not thinking I signed up and deposited £250.00 into my Brighter Trade account.
    I thought that this would be a great way to start investing, however a ‘Broker’ telephoned me right away and after a 2 and a half hour conversation she wanted me to invest £8,700.
    Whenever I told the Broker that I did not have £8,700 to invest she became very, very aggressive with me over the telephone shouting at me down the telephone line and calling me a liar, gambler and a cheat. I knew then that everything about ‘Brighter Trade seemed extremely very odd.
    The Broker was unable to tell me whether or not Brighter Trade were governed by governing body such as, for example FCA, I knew that after my 2 and half hour conversation that I had made the wrong decision.
    At the moment I have tried to withdraw my £250.00 but I am unable to. Whenever I asked ‘The Broker’ if she could help me withdraw my £250.00, as she had spent the past 2 and a half hours telling me ‘That she was here to help me’ she just told me to do it myself, I think that I may have lost my £250.00 deposit because no matter how hard I try to withdraw my £250.00 the computer system they are using will not let me withdraw anything.
    I hope that my comment will help other people not to get involved with Brighter Trade.

      I just had the same experience today. They just will not help me. I found out from customer support that the process is: if there is no activity, they keep charging us for inactivity starts at about £45, then goes up to £99. So before you know it your 250 is spent in charges. that’s how they make it disappear. Such a scam. I am fuming.

    • Christina Economou says:

      I just had another call with customer support, they did then agree to refund but I had to make the request via the web page. I made the individual stay on the line until it was done. I have been assured no charges, but of course I am nervous now. It will take up to 14 working days to get my money back.

    • Toni Treadwell says:

      Alan, thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Account brokers try to make it clear that due to the nature of online trading, people should only invest amounts that would not affect their lifestyle. At the same time, they also give an accurate picture of how maintaining sufficient margin can improve rates of return. Please contact our customer service team at and give them your email address and account information. We will go over your account history and help you resolve your request.

    Total Crooks will not give me the £666 I deposited with them even though they have to under UK law (14 day cooling off period). They are thieves operating out of Estonia! AVOID like the plague!

    Totally agree with all the below posts. I have had the same experience and found the female talking head to be rude and obnoxious who does not read emails properly. They have no idea about time zones and phone me at the most stupid times . Renee it would be good if i could get my money back but they just ignore my request and make up excuses. I have cancelled all cards [ and the ability for them to access my accounts] with my bank.
    It appears that they are just some of the scum on this earth.

    Have spoken to these guys 4 times now, despite being lied to by them on more than once occasion and me requesting they delete all my data as per GDPR they continue to call, each and every day. I understand when salespeople need to cold call to make money but the people working here are dishonest scam artists. Total sham, as they are probably not regulated by the FCA best thing to do is report them for GDPR breaches.

    Hi I am Syed from Malaysia, joined Brighter trade about a month ago with USD 250 deposit. Few days later i received a call from BT broker explaining to me how to use the platform and yes suggesting to me to deposit USD 5000 so i really can see the big investment return. I don’t have that kind of money and explained never in my life that i have traded or have any experience with stocks. The broker is polite although quite persuasive and finally he understand my limitation and left me alone. I have traded small margins as experimental ventures and have made and lose some. I withdraw some money just to see how it works and it was bank-in to my account that i registered in 4 days. So it works, I will continue to learn how to trade and small margin profit is fine with me, the BT portal is also user friendly. I still have a lot to learn and I think i am progressing slowly one step at a time.

    Absolute scam! Long and short of it is – why accept £250 off investors and not ask for all details the require when you want to withdraw funds ? ! Photo ID 3 Bills very fishy- That’s all they need to steal your identity . Spent days trying to withdraw without success . Currently dealing with * Action Fraud Criminal Investigation * Brighter Trade have been made aware of this but they are not even concerned. STAY AWAY FROM BRIGHTER TRADE! SCAM SCAM! SCAM!

    BE CAREFUL , I GOT SCAMMED by this company £250, They will NOT refund my money
    I was contacted by a David Goldman, immediately after I deposited the money, trying to force me to invest £10,000
    it does not matter if you do make money, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO WITHDRAW IT. I even asked this (David Goldman) to verify himself by e mailing me and ID to prove he does exist ! But he refused ! I told him, if you want to invest £10,000 of my money, i would want to see your face or any ID, but he refused. Then I asked him if they have a branch in London, he wouldn’t give me the address at first, he said I will e mail it to you, Then he e mailed me 14 Dover street in Mayfair, I went there, there was NO company as such.
    Then I was called by another Idiot who start insulting you and abuse you, they are a bunch of thieves. They are based in Estonia, someone should inform The Government about them.
    I had to cancel my credit card , I advise everyone to do the same, NEVER send them your ID.

  13. JAMAL ABRAHAM says:

    BIG SCAM , I even contacted the Estonian Foreign office , they informed me, that their address in Estonia, is not even correct, its an address of a school. I will be contacting the Interpol and the British police now, I urge everyone to do the same.

  14. Steve Hansen says:

    Wish I found and read all this reviews before I invested €500,00 with this people. That money is lost, this is a BIG SCAM! To be able to get some money back from them you have to verify your account, and to do so they ask for following (this is a copy of an email from them):

    “We would like to verify your account! Please see below list of documents required for verification:

    Color Copy of Passport / National ID Card / Driving License (front and back)
    Color copy of a Bank Statement / Utility Bill issued in the last 6 months, showing your full name, residential address and issue date
    Color copy of the Credit / Debit Card used for the deposit, showing the name, expiration date, first six (BIC) and last four digits (front), and the signature (back). For your privacy, please ensure that the CVV code is concealed.”

    It would not even cross my mind to give them or anybody else this kind of information. That would probably be the most stupid thing anyone could do!

    So I consider this a “lesson learned” -that money is lost forever. If you as me has waisted money with this site, delete all information possible on their site and including the credit card used for this!

    To avoid that they call you, just block their phone numbers – the will try to call you from different numbers – they want our money badly!

    I still can’t believe I could be this stupid!

    I have lost 17000 euro to this scamfirm. I have bin so naive to think they would help me to make some money so i could help my famaly. This is terible and i have not slept sinds. I made contact with a firm ho can help me get some or all the money back but before they can do anything i have to pay a lot of money and this is something i dont have anymore. I was thinking maybe we must start some kind of collective to support everybody ho has bin scamed by this terible company. Maybe setting up a fund where money can be put in so we can help eachother en others ..
    This must end because people’s lives are getting destroyd and still there are a lot of people ho are to goodhearted to see or recodnize what they are stepping in to. ( sorry for my englisch is not so good in writing).

    I have lost US $16000 to brightertrade on 24th Oct 1018 by a well planned scam conducted by their account manager. Please beware from this company and appeal to government to look into their scams. My experience was terrible with them as I felt like not able to escape from them They used to call me to deposit more and more money and they have opend up position with a massive leverage in spite of opposition showing false promise of profit which end up with massive lost. I lost my hard earned money in spite of repeatedly urging them to save my precious money. Now I am looking for any option I get my fund back from them. Please contact me if anyone has any idea to get the money back from them.
