Is GFCInvestment a scam or legit broker?

No, it is not safe to trade with GFCInvestment. GFCInvestment is owned by DARTALON LTD., which is an offshore company registered in St. Vincent and the Grenadine.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is notorious for its practically absent requirements and regulations. Due to the setup cost is low and it does not regulate forex trading. Therefore, it became an offshore zone for shady forex brokers such as Brokerz, TraderUR and more. You can read our detailed article about the risk of trading with brokers from St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

According to the GFCInvestment website, the broker is registered with the Financial Commission under the number 24437 IBC. Even though the FinaCom is a well-respected organization, it is a self-regulatory organization which cannot guarantee the safety of the trading environment and does not regulate the daily operations of the company, therefore can’t provide necessary protection to the client.

GFCInvestment is a Forex and CFD broker offering a variety of currencies and CFDs on the commodities, indices, and stocks as well as the cryptocurrency. GFCInvestment seems to be one of those offshore registered companies that offer their services without being licensed or regulated. 

The broker provides St. Vincent and the Grenadines as its operational address, but the contact phone number on the website has British country code. The firm is not regulated on the UK. Moreover, UK’s regulator Financial Conduct Authority has issued a warning against this broker in October 2018:

“This firm (Dartalon Ltd t/a Greenfields Capital and GFCInvestment) is not authorized by us and is targeting people in the UK. Based upon the information we hold, we believe it is carrying on regulated activities which require authorization.”

Also, the broker was banned in Australian by Australian Securities and Investments Commission in May, 2019:

“The business listed below has made unsolicited calls or sent emails about investing, financial advice, credit or loans and does not hold a current Australian Financial Services (AFS) licence or an Australian Credit licence from ASIC.”

We advise all investors and traders to avoid GFCInvestment and other brokers from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Traders should trade with well-regulated brokers such as UK brokers or brokers in Australia and reliable brokers such as HYCM and AvaTrade.

    My name is Heinrich Anton Lüker, born on April 23, 1945, Südstr. 12,
    49757 Werlte, Germany. I am 75 years old and a pensioner.
    The facts:
    On October 3rd, 2018 I opened an account by GFC Investment / GreenFields
    Capital in London. (This company conducts securities trading in foreign
    currency combinations.) First, I had two conversations with a Barbara
    Washington. After that I only spoke to Mr. Stephan Kleinmann. Everything
    was just over the phone, no written contracts were made. I paid the first
    250 euros. Then Mr. Kleinmann called and persuaded me to make further
    deposits. Sometimes he called me three times a day. Everything was positive
    at first, so in October 2018 I gradually paid 32,512.75 euros. With the tradable
    bonuses and other winnings, I had an account balance of 106,000 euros on
    October 30th, 2018. On October 30th, 2018, there was a foreign exchange
    trade (combination of British pound and US dollar), in which I suffered a
    loss of EUR 104,578.04 in a single transaction. My account manager told me
    this wouldn’t be a problem, the difference would be settled in three weeks,
    which unfortunately wasn’t the case. Mr. Kleinmann therefore asked me to
    make further payments in order to compensate for the loss more quickly.
    In November 2018 I made further deposits of EUR 27,060.65 and my account
    had a balance of EUR 67,125.28 at the end of the month. I thought things
    were going uphill again. On November 30th, 2018, they managed to reduce
    my account with 3 trades, loss of 66,608.26 euros, to 517.02 euros. In the
    meantime everything is gone. Account balance 0.00. (The phone number
    of Stephan Kleinmann is: 0044203966202) and (The phone number of GFC
    Investment / GreenFields Capital in London is: 004420136080844.
    My account number for GFC Investment / GreenFields Capital was:
    180930606779. I paid the company EUR 22,632.63 by credit card and
    EUR 34,533.87 by bank transfer to the Deutsche Handelsbank AG,
    Eisenheimer Str. 41, 80687 Munich, Germany
    IBAN: DE647001111 00009796010, BIC: DEKTDE7GXXX
    (a total of EUR 57,166.50)
    I have a new phone number from GFC Investment / Greenfields Capital:
    +493222299990128 and a new email address:
    compliance@greenfieldscapital.com
    I know that the accounts by GFC are fictitious (nonexistent)
    and controlled by a computer program. These fictitious accounts
    are emptied by the computer program on the weekend, with the
    exception of a small balance, and I know for sure that investment
    account no. 180930606779 was a fictitious account (in fact, it never
    existed). The balance of 106,000 euros on October 30, 2018 never
    existed in reality.
    I hope that you can make use of my information, even though two
    years have passed. As far as I know, the statute of limitations for
    such crimes is three years. If you can work on my case, please
    send me an email. My email address is: heinz.lueker@t-online.de
    then I will send you the documents: account statements from GFC,
    credit card statements and account statements from my account at
    Volksbank Werlte via PDF files.
