“In order to withdraw your funds, you need to top up your account” - this phrase could be the slogan of Unitmarkets.com brokers. The term ‘broker’ is not quite appropriate here, however. In this company, cash flow goes only in and never out. Today, members of Unitmarkets.com are actively attracting new Russian-speaking customers from CIS (former Soviet countries). They resort to aggressive techniques from MLM to psychological abuse in order to bring in new clients, or rather their money. New traders are being skillfully manipulated by the broker whose only goal is to keep the trading account topped up on a regular basis.
But let’s leave emotions behind and go through the facts. The first striking detail is a glaring discrepancy between the company's actual time of establishment and the one stated on its website. Obviously, Unitmarkets just acts like a teenager trying to look older when buying cigarettes. The company claims that it has been successfully trading on Forex since 2001 although its official website is hardly one year old. Actually, they have even claimed credits for non-existing rewards and mythical merits:
On top of the alleged non-existing rewards, our big-name broker has stolen another company’s legal address. For instance, the tax identification number 7751116026 provided by Unitmarkets actually belongs to SAMDAR LLC - a wholesale timber trading company. Ironically, the money scam and timber trading goes under one registration.
Company ranking: low
Note: The company is a Legal entity with tax debt over 1000 rubles (according to tax agency).
Registration date: 13.11.2017
Main State Registration Number: given 13/11/2017
Registration event code:

It gets even trickier when it comes to broker’s license - it simply doesn’t exist. Apparently, authors of this website could have created a pretty decent sample but just decided not to bother.
Today's world is the place of scammers. Meet one of them - Unitmarkets ruled by Atrix Global Trade Ltd.
I got the first-hand experience of how to trade with them in a “comfortable and easy” way. I got to know so many new people as well. A guy named Viktor advertised the benefits of the company and lied about a new training group for beginners. Tatyana Ushakova helped with “gaining” money. Soon it turned out that there will be no training group. I requested a withdrawal and then they began to behave weird. Tatyana told me that there were no obstacles for withdrawal, however, my account was transferred to a different broker. She assured me that everything was going just fine. Later on, I received a call from Michael (a true professional, really?) who blamed me for creating conflict. What was he talking about? As soon as I requested for money withdrawal, they all began to play dumb. Then Elvira takes the stage and is also trying to fool me. The money is not big but they won’t let it go. It shouldn't be a problem for a serious company. So they keep on repeating: request for money withdrawal but first make a deposit. When I asked first time for withdrawal, there were no problems with that but they wanted to stop these requests. Why do we need money anyway? Only big companies need it, although all of them pretend they only work with big deposits. It is just for training purposes that they attract “fools” with minimum funds. So this is how the “super broker” Unitmarkets works.
Do not transfer any additional money there! They are scammers! We suggest you file a complaint against them according to the sample below.
Ridiculous as it may seem, Unitmarkets is still gaining new clients. Numerous reviews on the net confirm this fact. The number of deceived investors is simply astonishing which means that they all were once fooled by the fake stories about reliability, high income, and crystal clear reputation of Unitmarkets. Unfortunately, such blind trust often results in negative experience and huge loss of private savings. “can’t get payout ” are the keywords to find Unitmarkets on the web. With any other broker this issue can be resolved somehow but not in this case.
Given all that, how do they manage to recruit new members at all? Massive manipulation techniques are used here. The victim stays hooked due to several managers working with him. Continuous calls, promises, and urge to top up client's account - these are effective tools of the broker. As a result, customers may lose from few hundreds up to tens of thousands of dollars.

The scam scheme: a guy named Aleksey called me and said he was a trader from Unitnarkets. He started to convince me to make a deposit promising a huge gain. He helped me create an account and I made a minimum deposit of $500. Then I was transferred to Tatyana Ushakova - the analyst - who explained me how to open deals. I didn’t get any other info on how things work. Tatyana only explained how to open deals. As we started to trade, she mentioned that $500 is not enough for good deals and advised me to deposit additional $5,000. And as I was new , Tatyana opened all deals. At first, everything went smooth and we even gained some profit. But later she advised me to deposit another $5,000 and then again the same amount. As a result, my deposit reached $15,500 plus money from the deals. And then she advised me to withdraw $5,000 to make me feel that there were no problems with that here. I managed to withdraw $5,000 and got them on my account the next day. This step was made in order to mislead me. Finally, she opened a losing trade and started calling me and persuaded that we need to add more money in order to keep the account. The opened trade continued to slide down, and I had to deposit more money to keep the level up. Even the broker added its money, and Tatyana promised me that soon the trade would gain profit, and I could withdraw my money. However, the situation didn’t become better, and they offered me to deposit another $10,000. When I told them I had no more money to invest, they lost my account in a day. All this continued for one month, and that was the result of my trading with Unitmarkets: instead of gaining huge profits and having a safe and long-term partnership I lost $35,500. That is how this broker works. First, they make you deposit your money and then they lose your account. You won’t earn anything with them! You’ll only lose the money!

Examples are numerous. Unitmarkets managers won’t stop at anything urging clients to take a loan for the next deposit.
If you receive a call from these two - Ilya Gortsev and Tatyana Ushakova - just hang up or you’ll be robbed of your money. These professional manipulators fooled me into depositing $500 - all my savings as I’m retired now. Later they just lost my whole deposit at no time and tried to persuade me to take a loan to reinvest. Don’t trust Unitmarkets and you’ll keep your money safe.
В общем, советуем быть настороже, учитывая, что компания планирует продолжить активное "окучивание" доверчивых граждан. Об этом говорят популярные сайты поиска работы. Unitmarkets регулярно публикует объявления о наборе русскоязычных менеджеров по продажам по телефону с хорошим окладом и премиальными. Чтобы не попасться на удочку мошенников, внимательно изучайте брокера. Потраченное на это время сохранит ваши сбережения и нервы. Не ведитесь на яркую обложку или громкие обещания. Помните, что доверить свои деньги можно только проверенному, надежному брокеру, и держитесь подальше от кухонь уровня Unitmarkets.
