The Fake Copyright Notice
What were they trying to hide?
It seems AussieTrust has a few unflattering reviews ranking high on search engines. The website owner did not agree to remove the reviews, and therefore AussieTrust took matters into their own hands.
These are the links they attempted to remove from Google –
Since this review has now been illegally ‘removed’ from Google, we take it upon ourselves to show you that review –
Read our Aussie Trust review carefully to see why we do NOT recommend this broker for trading. Just to clear doubts, this is an aussietrust.com review.
Who are they?
After taking a look at their website, it shows that they do not fall under any regulating agency. That is a MAJOR RED FLAG!! That should be enough for you NOT to invest with them. And they also work with websites that offer “Automated trading software” which is another red flag, as this kind of websites are notoriously famous for scamming schemes.
So Aussie Trust is just another unregulated forex broker, which means the customers are not protected, and there is highly likely they will get away with your hard earned money and there will be no regulating agency to hold them responsible.
How does it work?
Usually unregulated forex brokers work in the following way. They will call people to persuade them to make the initial minimum deposit, while trying any conceivable method in order to make that happen. They will offer deals that sound too good to be true, like we will double your initial deposit or you will make $100 per day easily. Please don’t fall for anything they say!!! It is a SCAM! After making the initial deposit, people get transferred to a smarter scammer, called a “retention agent”, who will try to get more money out of you.
You should submit a withdrawal request ASAP, because your funds are never safe with an unregulated broker. And here is when things get tricky.
If you want to withdraw your money and it does not matter if you have profits or not, they will delay the withdrawing process for months. If they delay it for six months, you won’t be able to file a chargeback anymore and your money is gone for good. It does not matter how often you remind them or insist in withdrawing your money, you will NOT get them back. And if you signed the Managed Account Agreement or MAA, which is basically authorizing them to do anything they want on your account, they will lose all your funds so there won’t be anything to request anymore.
How to get your money back?
If you already deposited your money with them and they refuse to give your money back, which is very likely to happen, don’t worry, it might be a way or two to get your money back.
First of all you need to keep the emails as a proof that you have been requesting the money back from them but they don’t give it to you, or they delay the process for too long, with the intention of not refunding your money.
What about wires?
If you sent them a wire, there is no way to perform a chargeback on a wire. For this step you need to raise the fight to a different level. Tell them that you will go to the authorities and file a complaint against them. That will get them to rethink the refund possibility. Another thing you can do is prepare a letter or email for the regulating agencies. Depending on the country where you live, you can search on google to find the regulating agency for Forex brokers in that country. After that you can prepare a letter or an email describing how you got deceived from them. Make sure you show this letter or email to them, and tell them you will send it to the regulating agency if they don’t refund your money. If you do not know where to start, reach for us at [email protected] and we will help you with this step as well.
How was this done?
Someone named ‘Edward Clark’ (and other fake identities) decided to file multiple (fake) DMCA takedown notice with Google. To do so, he planted the above review on a free blog post.
So, a loser opens a free blog, copies and publishes the content he wants to remove, backdates it, and then tells Google he owns the rights to the content. It’s that easy. Yes, it’s that easy to commit Perjury, Impersonation and Fraud.
And Royal Regis got caught.
In their defense, the people at AussieTrust do not seem to possess the intelligence to think of this scheme. They’re probably dumb enough to hire a fly-by-night Reputation firm to ‘Remove this Review at ANY COST’.
and finally, here’s a comment on AussieTrust which everyone needs to read –
I wholeheartedly recommend everybody avoids Aussie Trust. Just had a horrible experience with them. Thank god I got my bank involved in the need to get my money back. I got caught up by a personal recommendation on a friends FB page. Turned out this comment was not made by page owner, she later removed it – Aussie Trust are using a very underhand method of advertising here. They make a purchase of bit coins through a digital wallet they own so you can’t get access to your funds (this was done through CoinsHype). They appear to be legit – they have a website with customer support and chat facility. However, messages are purely placatory. Yes we’re dealing it, yes the Accounts Dept. have the details… you will hear from them shortly… Broker set-up my password on Aussie Trust. I still can’t believe I was so foolish in the first place to make the initial investment. Don’t go through the same experience I did. Steer clear.
