On June 29, 2023, we received the following complaint:
I invested in a digital energy mining company, but unfortunately, the company closed down after just 100 days. Fortunately, I didn’t lose my money, but many people who joined in the last few days have lost money. As a result of this issue, my two bank accounts were frozen.
On August 11, 2023, we received the following complaint:
I deposited 2,000 USDT into the MTFE platform and cannot withdraw funds from the wallet.
On August 12, 2023, we received the following complaint:
I have a withdrawal issue with MTFE (Metaverse Foreign Exchange Group). I’m worried about being scammed.
On August 15, 2023, we received two additional complaints:
I cannot make withdrawals, and I want to withdraw my money. My account balance is about $800, but I cannot access it.
The MTFE withdrawal process requires you to transfer funds from your asset account to your wallet. The moment you initiate this transfer, the money leaves the asset account and takes an extended period to reflect in your wallet. Your money is effectively trapped. I have lost $150 to this platform, which is a significant amount in my country.
On August 18, 2023, we were flooded with complaints.
Several users have reported negative experiences with the MTFE app. People from an investment WhatsApp group who deposited in MTFE had their withdrawals blocked due to a server error. Later, their funds shifted to a negative balance, and they were asked to deposit more to counteract this.
Multiple accounts have shifted to negative balances, with amounts ranging from approximately -$100 to over -$900.
Users have been unable to withdraw funds from the platform, with some citing that their assets read negative even after investing significant amounts.
Concerns arose, especially in August, with several users mentioning that MTFE stopped allowing withdrawals around the 6th to 8th of the month.
Several users believe the platform has scammed them. One user claimed the loss to be around $1800 and emphasized the financial difficulties faced by many in Bangladesh due to such scams.
A detailed account from a user who joined in June 2023 shared that in the initial days, they consistently received profits. Trusting the platform, they introduced family members and made collective investments. However, their withdrawal was stuck in August, with customer support citing server upgrades. Subsequently, forced AI transactions resulted in huge losses, with their assets showing negative values, culminating in a total loss of around $16000.
Multiple users feel scammed by the MTFE platform due to unauthorized AI trades, inability to withdraw funds, and lack of official customer support.
On August 23, 2023, we received two additional complaints regarding MTFE with total lost amount of almost $10K.
MTFE, or Metaverse Foreign Exchange Group, is an offshore forex broker that is not licensed and, therefore, a risk to investors. The broker claims to be located in Canada and is regulated by FINTRAC, but FINTRAC is not the regulator in Canada.
The broker claims to be incorporated in Australia, but there is no proof that ASIC regulates it.
The broker’s trading software is confusing, and there is no way to access the user area. The broker does not offer any coherent way to open an account. The available assets to trade with are forex currency pairs, commodities, indices, and stocks.
The available payment gateways are e-wallets, credit cards, debit cards, and bank transfers, and there are withdrawal fees. The broker is considered a scam website, and investors should not invest in it.
