Brolin I can verify what Jason states there are a stand up company. I have some issues with them that I will not go into. In the end your money is safe and they are a great broker. I will say after reading this thread (since it got bumped up to the top) the original poster seems to be a fraud and got busted by a reputable broker that did there homework. I know you only quoted one question here. But I can see how this thread could leave a bad taste in someone mouth about FXCM and I will not put words in Jasons mouth but I will say what I can tell he wanted to but has to be professional. That guy was full of it. Not he was a scam but I can say after dealing with many brokers that beyond a shadow of a doubt his names and addresses on his docs did not match. There is no other reason they would look for credit card statements other than to verify an address. Similar happened to me not long ago when I tried to withdraw funds from my broker. I had changed my address not long before and not only was my withdraw denied but my account was but on hold. When I asked why all they asked for was new prof of address (electric bill). Credit cards are not needed ever not even by FXCM (trust me I was approved for an account but never set it up). I dont own a credit card as I dont believe in debt or the fact that I need something if I cant pay cash. But I still could open an account with my bank account (yes I have a debit card) but if you can verify you exist to your broker then if they are reputable then you dont exist to them and for good reason. And if the fact of whether you exist or not does not matter to your broker then they are a bigger scam than you are. I don got to say good job keeping your professionalism here Jason but I had to comment. I may have not opened an account with you guys due to my issues but wow this is a load of crap and someone has to nip it in the butt since it is on the top of your page
