Fraudulent forex brokers always make various excuses to hinder customers from withdrawing their money and disobeying anti-money laundering laws becomes the common one.
BrokersView recently learned that Berat Limited has been one of the fraudulent brokers.
Suspicious Money Laundering
An investor posted his scammed story in Berat Limited. He had a failed withdrawal because of suspicious money laundering - just an excuse. He was told by the firm that he needed to be verified by FATF (The Financial Action Task Force) for money laundering before withdrawal. Under international anti-money laundering(AML laws, the trader will need to do an ID check.
After he submitted all required documents for completing the anti-money laundering review, he was still refused to withdraw even with small amount of his money due to failed FATF's verification.
Misleading Company Information
Berat Limited claims it is the best forex broker in 2013. In addition, Berat Limited showed its copyright is 2017-2024 at the bottom page. However, domain check results showed the company was newly created in 2021. This is the first red flag here.
A Chinese FX Broker With no License
Entering the domain of Berat Limited, and you are browsing a Chinese company. Berat Limited offers traders forex currencies investment with no regulatory documents. Headquartered in HONG KONG, the firm has no SFC license. That is to say, Berat Limited has neither registration nor regulation in HONG KONG.
