Carl Ericsson called my mother’s cellphone on August 26, 2016 and hooked us in by saying a bunch of stories about how “Pokémon Go” would make Google’s stocks go up and we need to get inside as soon as possible. He made my mother deposit around $5000 USD first and promised a $15,000 bonus to our account. He did not give my mother and I full details of how everything worked. After our account was up to roughly $30,000, he started making trades and kept promising that the credit cards will be paid off “next week”. My mother and I liked him very much at that time because he told us that he could relate to being raised by a single mother (our situation), which made him very relatable for my mother. However, once the credit card companies started chasing my mother’s debt and Carl started losing trades, our relationship soured. I started to get nervous because every time we COULD HAVE taken out money, he convinces us that it was “bad for the trades” and would put the money back and lose most of the times. He convinced us that the only way for us to get the money back was to BRING IN another friend, more clients for him and he would give us the commission. My mother unfortunately put her friend and Carl in contact and deposited the same amount of money that we did. Right now she is also very suspicious of Carl Ericsson because at one point Carl tried to make her deposit $40,000 USD, which was a little frightening. My mother had some very emotional phone calls with Carl because she was in debt from the Option500 deposits and shouted at Carl to return our money. Carl finally admitted that with the bonus system, we couldn’t take out money until our account was at a certain amount (he said $70,000). Our account at that time was at less than $15,000 and we basically lost our entire deposit at this stage. My mother screamed at Carl to stop calling us and he did. But he still emailed me and there was this one Apple trade that could have brought our account to $22,000 and give our account roughly $7000 that we could withdraw. Carl AGAIN tried to coax me into trading that money and I got scared. I frantically emailed him 3 times urging him to STOP touching our account. Within an hour our account went from $14,000 to $1700. Even if we won the Apple trade we wouldn’t be able to withdraw any money because it was UNDER the bonus amount of $15,000.@gandra wrote:You must give us an explanation here, or topic will be deleted!
