    RESOLVED ISSUE: "Don't trust" ***Edited on Nov. 7th, 2018***

    ***Original*** Deposited my money in a spread bet account so I could have free access to a trade room. I then found the trade room had to change there offer so I would not get what I was told I would. I requested my money back but I get charged for them sending my money back to me. Even know they had a no fee option available. 🤔 ****Edited on Nov. 7th, 2018**** 😁 happy with there fantastic service. 👍 I had an issue with the withdrawal of my money from my spread betting account but this was sorted out as soon as they became fully aware of the issues. Keep up the excellent service. It might be a good idea to right on the cash withdrawal from that there is a charge to withdraw money using bank transfer under certain circumstances.
