I agree. Let's avoid creating fake facts.
In particular, let's not confuse CCM with Tallinex.
According to Tallinex, there is no continuing business relationship of any kind between the two brokers. When Tallinex came under attack by the U.S. authorities -- culminating in the SUIT mentioned above -- Tallinex transferred the accounts of all of their U.S. clients to CCM. No business relationship existed between Tallinex and CCM prior to that transfer, and no business relationship has existed between them since the transfer.
At the time of the transfer, as Tallinex was in the process of severing all ties with the U.S. market, the choice of CCM (as opposed to some other broker) was a matter of convenience for Tallinex.
Therefore, CCM is not a party to the U.S. government's suit against Tallinex.
And so far, CCM is not a target of the U.S. government on their own account.
I don't have many facts to stick to. Like all of you, I'm waiting for facts.
Specifically, I'm waiting to hear from members of this forum who are clients of CCM whether they have had any success in retrieving their lost deposits; and I'm waiting to hear from CCM that they have established a relationship with a reputable PSP, and have taken steps to ensure that this sort of deposit problem will not happen again in the future.
There is one thing I can add to the discussion at this time -- the email reply which I received from CCM (which I initially said that I would not post).
Very early on Tuesday, October 24, I sent an email to CCM in which I made several statements and asked several questions. I posted that email HERE.
A few hours later, CCM replied to my email, refuting the statements I had made, and offering answers to my questions. I posted HERE that I had received the CCM email, and that I would not be posting it here in this thread at the present time.
I have changed my mind about that. Below is a copy of CCM's reply to my email.
Note the last paragraph of their reply, in which they allude to the conspiracy-theory issue -- although they don't use that term. Also note that the abbreviation PSP in the CCM email stands for "payment services provider".
Here is that email --
I mentioned in THIS POST the possibility of placing a WARNING on the Capital City Markets listing in The Offshore Broker List, but I said that I considered it premature (at that time).
In view of the fact that we might be looking at months before some of our members are able to resolve their deposit problems with CCM, I think a WARNING is appropriate, and I will add it this weekend.
