Another user, Majd Yazigi, said that ThinkMarkets amended all losing trades to 0 and gave away $25 to compensate customers for the losses due to ThinkMarkets' delisting of EU/UK stocks. ThinkMarkets also responded that the temporary delisting of EU/UK stocks aims to improve its services.
JOSEPH reported that his withdrawals were not credited to his bank account, ThinkMarkets responded by confirming that his withdrawals were processed successfully. The problem Scott reported was that his deposits from four different banks were unsuccessful, and the banks confirmed that they had not blocked his transfers, so he appeared to be skeptical of ThinkMarkets. ThinkMarkets did not provide a specific response to Scott's trouble.
Another user believed ThinkMarkets was running a withdrawal fee scam. According to him, he was charged a whopping 5.2% fee for withdrawals and ThinkMarkets refused to explain the reason.ThinkMarkets' response to this user in the comments section was that any possible fees are to cover the fees charged to ThinkMarkets by payment providers.

Another user claimed that ThinkMarkets customer service employee Andrea Samuels scammed him out of €11,000. According to him, he had been trading with ThinkMarkets for a month when he realized that the funds in his account had been withdrawn, and Andrea Samuels said that he would never get his money back because his proof of address was fake. The official response from ThinkMarkets is that any client funds held will be managed in line with the relevant policies.
One user advised against trading crypto CFDs on ThinkMarkets because the spreads are very high, but he didn't think this was due to market volatility. He also claimed that the ThinkMarkets platform is very unstable. However, the official response was that this was caused by increased volatility in the crypto market, with wider spreads on weekends.
