Learn how to withdraw money
Askica. General information
Broker's main website:
Get instructions on how to withdraw funds
Once on the main page of Askica, we find out that we have the same "ruble" project as Fox mTrading and many other heroes of our reviews. Only the scenery changes, but the essence and price tags remain the same.
The main page, by tradition, is represented by a structure familiar to all readers of binarybets.ru:
- menu (market overview, trading conditions, about the company, contacts, language change button, login/registration);
- slider with a USP and a “start trading” button;
- a block with arguments why you should choose Askica;
- call to action and even more benefits;
- instructions on how to start investing;
- tariff plans;
- information about the company, it is also economic news.
The footer duplicates the main menu and presents the license numbers of our esteemed Cyprus, Mauritius, Belize. There is also information about the legal address, which we, along with some other points, will have to check in the next chapter.
Expertise of legal information, Askica licenses
So, as befits a respectable broker, Askica received licenses from reputable regulators and published the numbers of the received documents. They did this in the footer of the main page and in a separate section of the site to look away from inquisitive reviewers.
But, as they say, the wrong ones were attacked. And by simple manipulations in the databases of regulators, we find out that all the submitted documents are fake.
We also checked the license of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, which everyone who adapts their projects for Russian-speaking traders is required to have. Although, it would be possible not to waste time on this. Everything is so clear.
In the "contacts" section, we see a fake "international" phone number familiar to us.
Phone number checkIn the same place, the company publishes the address of its registration. That's just "accidentally forgets" to indicate the number of the house. So, come on in. You were already waiting there.
We were embarrassed, though not surprised, by the absence of any contracts. Our surveyed did not provide either an offer or other pieces of paper that such offices traditionally download from each other and cover up their machinations with them.
Well, the icing on the cake is the age of the project. Askica in their "about the company" section, in addition to fake licenses, publishes the same "true" statistics. The authenticity of this whole beautiful story and numbers will become clear to you if you pay attention to the very first screen of this review. The project was launched at the end of October 2021, which has little to do with 4 years of experience, millions of turnovers and thousands of successful traders.
Even the presence of the old domain does not save the situation. There is no information in the web archive that the project showed any signs of life until 2021.

Askica User Fraud Scheme
As befits a classic scam, Askica starts off with beautiful “success stories”, promising trading conditions with a regulated broker. You may even be allowed to withdraw for the first time a meager amount of money from those that you brought to the account. At the same time, you will pay incredible commissions, insurance and other fees. In the future, you will not see your own, or, moreover, earned money.
Users note that it is not possible to trade on the provided platform. All transactions are merged. Only the broker gets richer. You just have to watch how slowly but surely your deposit flows into the pocket of these crooks.
On the Askica website, we found the following signs of fraud:
- non-unique, low-quality resource with primitive content and template structure;
- fake licenses, lack of regulation by a Russian bank, which makes traders from the Russian Federation and the CIS countries completely defenseless against scammers;
- incomplete data, wrong number;
- absence of a contract;
- the presence of a large number of negative reviews;
- short time of existence of the office on the market;
- false information about work experience, invented brand history.
In general, a full ammunition load of a typical bug-collector, which has already managed to breed a lot of honest traders. The only pity is that in pursuit of easy money, many beginners neglect elementary checks of counterparties. And as a result, they are forever disappointed in working in the financial markets and leave this field, having lost the opportunity to make good money.
By the way, if someone is not in the know, our website has a lot of educational materials for traders with a wide variety of experience. For example, newbie article.
