Aston Forex

Scam Warning! Aston Forex, astonforex.com

Just had a cold call from these guys, suposedly in London.
No address on their website astonforex.com and they wouldn’t tell me where they were at first. After I kept asking they gave me London. Then they hung up because I kept asking, and another guy rang back, said I was rude and told me they were in Finchley Road. Wouldn’t give me a number though and hung up again.
They say they will trade a trial account for me to get me going in the forex market..but I have to open account with them, because they’re the brokers. But hang on….they can’t be the broker And trade. They could do anything to manipulate the trades, if they ever  put any on.  They reckon they have between 50-100,000 clients. So there’d be good feedback on the web right?

Wrong. First search reveals:

Pretty much as suspected…can’t even get a withdrawal.

Also, I see they are listed by the UK’s FCA as a company to avoid:

May be also posing as EuroBondFX
