    Is this a real website?

    They were taken down by FCA for a reason. Now they are sending their clients to some unregulated
    website. Try to withdraw and see what happens.

    I've been told I have to wait until October but now there's nobody to contact. The new website has an email but doesn't send so we've all been had. I'm contacting Action Fraud tomorrow. I've contacted my bank because I have invoice receipts on email with the bank details to which i transferred. My bank's going to trace the money and hopefully reclaim it. I've told the FCA that they are now CPT Trading Technologies.

    I have sent them an email, I think it was successfully sent, but I could not message them on their website, watch this space.

    Me too so it seems. My wife and I invested 25K in Strategy Markets last Sept and so far had nothing back. The account was credited with 5K bonus and it appeared to be making about 2_3% monthly.
    I tried to get some out in Jan but the transaction was cancelled and I was told I had not applied in time for the deadline (15th) however the account was debited for the amount I requested.
    Since then it’s lost money and I now cannot acces the web platform.
    If there’s any way to act against these people I would be interested.

    I'e just spoken with a guy from www.which.co.uk. They believe that the money is not even in a bank account but gone already to the scammers. Since I have nothing to lose I have submitted a withdraw request directly from their platform. It will probably be declined but at least it will stop the algorithm (!) from trading. I'll keep doing that until I can withdraw my money - if any is left - and I would suggest other users doing the same. A rather meager consolation but at least I'll annoy them as much as I can.

    Go to cptsystem.com and login using your SM login and password. You'll have probably lost a few thousand pounds in the process.

    Two questions for everyone:
    Has anyone heard back from Action Fraud people?
    Is anyone else trying through their Bank? Apart from DawnJay?
    I'm with Lloyds and have raised a dispute with SM through the visa debit people and the credit card people. I don't know if either will be accepted by the Lloyds departments but my details have been taken to be escalated to people higher up the chain.

    As far as I understood, Action Fraud could take up to 28 days before replying.

    I am also in contact with my bank (Barclays) but they haven't been as proactive as Lloyds. They say they can chargeback debit card transactions only within 120 days. I am curious to know what kind of dispute Lloyds is suggesting and I will ask Barclays to do the same.
    Someone at Barclays also suggested to contact Financial Ombudsman (http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/). I haven't looked into it, yet, and I am not sure about their role or support they can provide.

    On my side, I have sent a few messages to people that have posted on this thread but not many have gotten back to me.
  • magpiemagpie Posts: 12
    If you have a dispute with a company and the bank say they cannot help you for whatever reason, you can appeal to the financial ombudsman. I'm not giving up hope til I hear a no from the FO, which is probably likely, but it makes me feel better to fight. Lloyds texted me a number to ring today but I couldn't get through!!

    I've spoken to Andrew Burrows today and he informed me about the change to CPT Trading Technologies. Also, they no longer have mobile phones to contact people because all calls have to be recorded. I mentioned this page and all the negative comments on here and he shrugged (figuratively speaking), suggesting that all you guys are people who have not done well with their portfolios (as can happen sometimes).
    I was quite worried, especially with not being able to check my account. I didn't get the email informing me about the change, but when I rang SM, Andrew rang me back when I was advised he would call.
    I don't know if I'm reassured but I'll not make any rash decisions (I can't anyway, until July, when I can take out if I want to). My account was growing steadily. I put in £5k and I'm at just over £9k. I was as high as £11k in October, so I am disappointed at the amount of losses that have occurred. I would like to have over £10k before taking out the dividend, but I do worry that it will drop further and I'll have little profit.

    Dude, CPT markets is a Ukraine company using a virtual office in Switzerland to scam you out of your money, don't trust them. they are not regulated.
  • bobs1ukbobs1uk Posts: 2
    I'm in for 95k and have not heard from them for more than 2 months.
  • magpiemagpie Posts: 12
    I've just had a call from Andrew B. He tells me that CPT trading have been working very hard to get our platforms back on-line. My profit now looks far too good to be true!! I was able to log on. He told me that you need to give sixty days notice if you want to withdraw your deposit in July. I have filed a report with Action Fraud this evening.

    The _geek. Can you give me the link to your claim that CPT systems is a Ukraine company, please? Thanks.

    It's what they state in the footer of their newly created website cptsystems.com (see attachment).

    My account is doing too well, too: ridiculously well.

    I think A.B. is still in the UK and not in Switzerland as he claims to be based now.

    I too received a call from them yesterday. I had sent an email expressing my concern the day before. The guy apologized that I hadn't received adequate communication and said that their site had been down. He told me that they owned 20% of strategy markets but have now bought them outright because they wanted the algorithm.

    He also said that complaints on forums like this one were likely coming from a combination of the competition and people who had seen the value of their investment fall.

    Fyi I'd noticed that there had been no trading on my account for around 10 days and trades had become more infrequent in recent months. Trades had always been in currencies and never with more than 3% of the capital. When he called me, he told me that my account was showing 28k profit so far, which was way more than when I checked the day before. Sure enough, I logged in and found that three trades had been made, each for around 10% of the capital and the investment was a purchase of Teva (US). They were all winners, luckily.

    Obviously feels good to see the value jump but the trades are outside of the boundaries that were agreed when we determined my risk level and I'm still really concerned that this is all a scam. All I'm seeing in this forum is the concern that they are not FCA registered. Does that not just mean it's higher risk for us rather than them actually doing something that they shouldn't?

    I emailed the company and strangely Andrew Burrows phoned me, a bit of a coincidence. I asked about withdrawals, he said I had to wait until July . I mentioned the email and said I was concerned because I had not received a reply. I paid my deposit by my bank card, would it be possible for the bank, Santander to trace the money, any chance I might get it back? Could someone tel me what SM is, thanks? I think we need to formulate a plan and work in tandem. Comments please.

    if you go on their website and look for the information it is right there. YOu should really do some research before giving money to online financial services.

    i hate to say it again but it looks like these guys are a scam, no withdrawals until when? My ass. It's time to all the authorities and see what they say about it.

    Not checked mine but had the phonecall last week to say my balance was now 6k up from the previous week. See what happens when we all try to get our money out.

    Came across you guys months ago and have now decided to share my experience so far . I invested 10k just over a year ago and Im now convinced that S.M. (now) C.P.T. are using a "long con" drawn out over a set time period. I know this is a really negative opinion/conclusion but I have been banging heads with this lot since I invested. I have now decided to "kiss" the money goodbye and I agree with The_Geek_MH that its a Scam. Arron (the smooth talker) and Andrew are con men, its that simple. - clear

  • magpiemagpie Posts: 12
    I think we are all very clear that it is a scam and have been ever since the SM platform disappeared. It is not easy to "kiss goodbye" to 60k which should have helped with my pension. I am a 59 year old woman who has worked hard all my life in the NHS and never had any money until I inherited. Despite researching into the company last year, at the time I invested, I now feel stupid, ashamed, humiliated and angry. And it really doesn't help to be told what we "should" have done by sanctimonious people! Mr Geek!

    Constructive comments and suggestions only please. I have reported to Action Fraud, and registered as a dispute with both bank card departments. If anyone wants to be in touch please message me personally. I would be willing to share my mobile number with specific people.

    Ms. Magpie, I didn't tell anyone what they "should have done" . I said this is a scam and its time to call the police. I'm sorry you got taken, it sucks, I hope you can get your money back.

    Everyone here should call the same numbers you have, and any other numbers that may be able to help. Magpie please list them here so we can all participate in your fight.

    Binary option consumers who have been in similar situations before have reported recovering funds (just partially) by making use of a “letter of idemnity” through their banks. It is a form of a chargeback for wire transfers. But has anyone here been successful with escalating this to Section 75 via their credit card issuer??
