I have used Plus 500 for a year now. I began by depositing £100, which i turned into £1400 and requested to withdraw. Three days later the money was deposited to my account.
I have moved large sums of money in and out of Plus 500 and i've never had a single problem. Today my trading account has £476,532.76 and i'm not worried in the least about its safety!
After learning about MF Global, i have to think Plus 500 is the best trading account in the UK.
I have started using plus500 properly from october 1st. I made over £100 profit after depositing £100. Yes you need to have the required documents in order to withdraw your money. I've tried withdrawing my money, it was fully proccessed sucessfully in 3 days.
Well, I'd like to give my experiences of Plus500. I have never used their trading platform but I just clicked on their "affiliates" link as I WAS interested in promoting them on my websites.
On their affiliates screen is a chat box so you can speak to one of their representatives. I clicked on this and started chatting, what happened next was one of the most random experiences of my life.
The operator threw a few inappropriate auto messages at me that were nothing to do with what I was asking. They then claimed to know nothing about their services, kept throwing more automessages at me and made comments that made absolutely no sense. They did speak perfect English though so it wasn't a 'lost in translation' moment.
It was as if somebody had hacked into their system or something but surely this is not possible. This did cross my mind so I asked them who they work for and they sent another automated message telling me (for the fifth time) how I can sign up.
The ten minutes I spent on IM with them was like a really surreal dream and I only stayed on there because i was tried to figure out what was going on. I never will. Too bad there wasn't an option to email the transcript!!
Welcome to Plus500!!
SCAM....No phone Number....Plus500 will ask Credit Card Copy, ID card, Passport, Utility Bill, Driving Licence..
Sue, yes you are requiered to upload document which confirm personal details which you provided to them durring registration. Its needed to protect platform from abusing use of fraudsters.
Regarding my opinion, Plus500UK is a legit trading platform, i didnt had any bad experiences with them.
A friend invested some money with PLUS500. She wanted to withdraw money from them after learning about them from reviews and doing some research, and they need a copy of her passport/id...is all this necessary? She is quite concerned that she will lose the money that she has invested. Is this legit?

It's not a scam, they're regulated by the FSA in London.

It seems like their customer services leave a lot to be desired though, so wouldn't tie up a lot of money with them.
Be warned, CFD's are only legal in United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Singapore, South Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, France, Ireland, Japan and Spain.
They do say all this on their website, but they'll take your money before checking that you are able to trade with them!
I only have a demo account at the moment, but I'll be opening a real account with them soon.
I agree plus 500 are con artists. Did you know if you have less than £128 you can't withdraw it? Their software stops working first so you can't access your account then their "customer service" is an absolute joke and they will ignore you once you ask them specific questions.
i HAVE RAISED A FORMAL COMPLAINT WITH THE FINANCIAL OMBUDSMAN. BE WARNED.
I did some research & found Plus500 scam all over, so i decided to "attack" them by an e-mail interview
May I post a link here? As it's quite detailed, 3 pages long
I have used them for over a year.. Ilost money due to my studpidy and greed... But they have always honoured my withdrawals and trading is very easy...By the sounds of it.. your all winging from inexperience..Try other brokers and get rippe off...Only good review here.

PLUS 500 IS A SCAM!!! DO NOT GIVE THEM ALSO ONE DOLLAR AS AS PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THEY DONT RETURN YOUR FUNDS AND KEEP GIVING STUPID EXCUSES. I HOPE THESE PEOPLE GO TO JAIL AND SUFFER FOR LIFE.
TAKE CARE TO PLUS500.
They locked my account.
I asked 'Why?' but they answered that they can't write the reason to me!
Everyone becareful if you want deposit to Plus500, Because who's deposit to this forex broker, Maybe you cannot withdraw your's deposit, His will give you many reason cancel your's withdraw money. What I did? just report to polish station and report to news paper. This is a scam site, Please don't believe and go away from this site.
Actually, iam using plus500 since 1 year now, never withdraw any money. till last month, i withdraw around 100 EURO only to try them, they issued a BANK DRAFT for me from GERMAN bank, all written n GERMANY. my bank here refused it and said if they will pass it, it will cost me 70 EURO for verification + 45 Days till i get my money. what a hill is this ?? i waited 1 month till i got my bank draft and now nothing !!!. they will pay you if u r in EURO zone very fast, outside EURO they will make you life miserable before you got 20% of your money. I will close my account with them even i have around 900 EURO in it.
