If IG index said they needed my ID and statement proof of me depositing funds in the account. I wouldn't oblige, I'd tell the dumbasses that I would never have been able to open an account without providing that first...something fishy about this story. This is one time I wish Black Swan were here, he'd probably call the OP a damaged subterranean retard...or something less complimentary.

And we could ask him what CMC's policy would be in such a situation.

How could he have traded with no funds in his account? His main crime was making money and not losing it.

Assuming of course what he alleges is true and not some made up yarn by The Leopard using yet another user name.

Yes Black Swan was a good contributor to this forum. I never understood why T2W banned him. Yes he went little bit too far at times in expressing himself, but really, it was quite harmless.

You should report the matter to the FSA. You should also post proof of what you are saying here. Without the proof you're going nowhere because a bunch of pro IG people will just shout you down.

I'd suggest you start by posting the letter where they are alleging a breach of the rules on your part. Please cover up stuff like your address or banking details.

Ok letter will be up in a hour or so, along with the transaction ledger... Can understand why people might not believe it, i still cannot believe a company can do this! Letter and transaction history will prove all

It's probably to do with the OP not stating he was a professional trader. Bucketshops normally only allow people who don't know what they are doing.

IG Index DO NOT ask for ID and statement on account opening, anyone can open an account in seconds, its all electronic checks. I thought it was rather odd they would ask me AFTER i'd deposited funds via card but maybe I was abit naive in thinking this was a normal procedure.

Well, we will probably soon find out how sincere he/she is. SCAM is a very strong world to use, and you have to provide evidence that support your claim, otherwise you will not be taken seriously, especially with no record of earlier posts.

Its not so much that we don't believe you, its more about being able to argue that this thread shouldn't be deleted. If there is proof of what you say then its harder for a forum to delete your allegations. You can be quite sure IG will be screaming to get this deleted tomorrow.

Give the financial-ombudsman a call first thing in the morning :
0300 123 9 123 or 0800 023 4567
It is good to post your experience across discussion boards but that wouldn't bring back your money ...

That's what I'm telling him, no proof and he's wasting his time because this thread will be gone in the morning. He hasnt posted before but he has been a member since February.

Myabe for UK residents that is true they make electronic checks and when you try to withdraw they can ask for paper proof if they want , but for over seas clients like me they asked for notarized bills and documents before they gave me the login details ...

yes he was banned, it was only short term, on return from the cooler he left in the best non-flounce ever.

anyhow this is all interesting stuff, best of luck to the op on this (y)
