Please avoid sharing your information (ID) with www.quebex.com – an Online Bitcoin trading company.
I registered on this website to be able to purchase some Bitcoins to Save and Sell when the rate increases.
I was asked to undergo an ID verification process in which I was asked to provide the followingL
1. Copies of two Government Issued IDs (I provided international passport and Canadian Drivers Licence).
2. Snapped Picture / photo of myself holding both Photo IDs.
3. Snapped Picture of myself holding a hand written paper which had ‘ SIGNING UP TO QUEBEX.COM ON DECEMBER 31, 2016 FOR THE PURCHASE AND SALE OF BITCOINS”
4. After I provided these, I was asked to add “Aaron Kuchma” to Skype for a VIDEO VERIFICATION. I did.
He called me after 5 minutes to verify I was the actual person and went ahead to approve my Application. He told me I was approved and my account is active. Congratulated me and added that I can now trade in Bitcoins.
Just before I purchased my first bitcoins (thank God I had not made an interact transfer to him), he sent me a message saying that HE HAD TO SUSPEND MY ACCOUNT AS I DIDN’T PASS THE SCREENING TESTS. HE ADDED THAT HE IS PROHIBITED FROM GIVING ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Then, I paused in confusion as this is the same person that told me I was approved.
Also, my IDs checked out but my concern right now is I am SCARED THAT THIS COULD BE A COMPANY SCAMMING CLIENTS OF THIER FUNDS AND USING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ILLEGALLY COLLECT THIER INFORMATION, PHOTO IDs and VITAL INFORMATION FOR ILLEGITIMATE USES.
PS: I ALSO NOTICED THAT SOMEONE WITH THE SAME NAME (Aaron Kuchma) AND LOCATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ARRESTED BY SUDBURY POLICE FOR MAKING PIPE BOMBS.

I WILL CONTACT THE POLICE TO MAKE A REPORT.
BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!!!!! DONT FALL FOR THIS PLEASE…
