Malachai Levy Ralph Metters, Maurice Metters do not do business with him. He will claim that he will invest your money and return 3 to 5 times the amount. You'll never see your money. He claims the money is insured as well. I gave him a large sum of money and it's been 2 years since I've heard from him. He changes his number and address frequently along with his company name. I recently found out he has federal charges for fraud and money laundering. He is a con man to the highest degree. He does not only do investing but has any other cons that he is running. If he or anyone doing business with him approaches you turn and run the other way. I gave him my last bit of money and because here never paid me I couldn't pay my bills and lost my house corona, Rancho cucamonga, Fontana, Pomona, Los Ang California

Do not do business with Malachai Levy, Ralph Metters, Maurice Metters or anyone associated with him . He claims that He will invest your money with a 3 to 5 times return.  It's a lie.  I invested several thousands with him and it's been 2 years since I've heard from him. He changes his number, where He lives and his company names frequently.  He will claim the money is insured but it's all lies. He has people working for and with him as well. Investing isn't his only con.  He gets money however he can. I recently found out he has federal charges of fraud and money laundering and is a convicted felon. The money I invested was my last and because of him I lost my house.  Please be careful with this man. He is a thief.

Some Justice is being served

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

Ralph Maurice Metters aka Malachai "Moe" Levy and his associates, Brandon Jones, Sean Preston and Rick Watkins are Con Artists.  Those defending him here are liars.

I am happy to report, that through the efforts of this man's victims and Law Enforcement, Ralph Metters is finally going to get some measure of justice.

Washington, DC — The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that Judge Manuel L. Real of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California entered on August 27, 2014 an emergency Order freezing and preserving assets under the control of Defendant Ralph Metters of Los Angeles, California. The court’s Order also prohibits Metters from destroying books and records and grants the CFTC immediate access to the Defendant’s records. Metters has never been registered with the CFTC.

The Order arises out of a civil enforcement Complaint filed by the CFTC on August 20, 2014, charging Metters, who uses the alias Malachai “Moe” Levy and operated Destiny FX, LLC, with fraudulently soliciting $500,000 from a member of the public in connection with off-exchange foreign currency (forex) transactions beginning in October 2013. Although Metters told his customer that the funds would be used to generate profits in a forex trading account, Metters in fact misappropriated at least $385,000 of the funds, according to the Complaint.

In its continuing litigation, the CFTC seeks disgorgement of ill-gotten gains, restitution, a civil monetary penalty, a permanent registration and trading ban, and a permanent injunction from future violations of federal commodities laws, as charged.

The CFTC appreciates the assistance of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in this matter.

CFTC Division of Enforcement staff members responsible for this case are Jennifer E. Smiley, Mary Beth Spear, Ava Gould, Scott Williamson, and Rosemary Hollinger.

response to allegations against me

AUTHOR: Britani Jefferson - ()

I am the person that the rebuttal is pertaining to. Mr Metters or whoever he has writing for him has bold face lied about me and my cousin.  The truth is that he did take $30k from my cousin in June of 2012. He knew that my cousin had received a settlement because her brother passed away when he was 4 and a wrongful death suit had been won as a result.  Mr Metters  took the money saying he would help my cousin maximize the money since it was her last pay out.  She was supposed to receive the money in September of 2012. For him to say that we scammed him is disgusting. We have never claimed to own multiple houses and we actually didn't seek him out to invest, he offered. We have never been to his office because he doesn't have one. I have the contract that my cousin signed, the wire receipt showing that the money was transferred into his account along with multiple emails from him and the so called people involved with the deal saying she would be paid out. I know Mr Metters very well, at least I thought I did and he knows that the only person that was scammed was my cousin.  I have tried to be the mediator between the two of them for over a year because he refused to speak to my cousin about her money, the money that her brother died for. I am the only reason why my cousin hasnt filed a lawsuit against him. At this point we would like to see any money but that probably won't happen. He has since purchased multiple expensive cars without giving my cousin a dime. We have been patient with him for too long but he has gone too far by trying to slander mine and my family's name. My father is a police officer and has been in contact with the Hawthorne police department and they have been building a case with the feds against him for quite a while. If he is the ethical business man he claims to be he wouldnt have law enforcement after him there also wouldn't be other reports against him on the internet. I have given him the benefit of the doubt in hope that he would do the right thing.  I find the rebuttal highly disrespectful since through all of this I have NEVER spoken an ill word against him up until now.

Response to ex employee

AUTHOR: Britani J - ()

The rebuttal from the ex employee is about me and my cousin.  Mr Metters/levy or whoever this employee is has bold face lied. My cousin and I have never claimed to own multiple houses and he took her money gladly.  He knew that my cousin had received a settlement because her brother passed away when he was 4 and my family filed a wrongful death suit. My cousin gave him $30k in June of 2012 and promised a return no later than September 2012. He told her he would maximize her money since it would be her last pay out.  He even went as far to tell her if she didn't get her money back he would give her money out of his own pocket Since she was like family.  We never went to his office because he doesn't have one.  We also never sought him out he offered.  I know Mr Metters /levy very well at least I thought I did. I have been the mediator between him and my cousin because he refused to contact her regarding her money.  I have the contract, the wire receipt showing the money going into his account as well as emails from him saying he would pay her.  I find it highly dispicable that he would claim he didn't receive any money from her. A little boy died for that money and he doesn't care.  My father is a cop and Mr Metters sat on my dads couch and told him that my cousin would be paid in January of this year, over a year after he originally said. Not only has he not kept his word he has since purchased more than one expensive car.  We have been nothing but patient with this man and I personally have tried to give him the benefit of the doubt.  He has gone too far by trying to slander mine and my family's name.  My whole family has been nothing but nice to him and genuinely wanted to help him. Including watching his child for free. I am the only reason he hasn't been served with a lawsuit.  My cousin isn't the only person i personally know that he has taken money from without returning it. I have lost all respect for a man that will take money from people knowing they won't get it back. Up until now I have never spoken an ill word against him but the truth needs to come out.

#7 UPDATE EX-employee responds

the real story

AUTHOR: ex employee - ()

I am an ex employee of this company. While I was employed by maurice metters, there was never any fraudulent activity going on. He is a professional investor for many top clients. What I did notice was that there were two women that came to him stating they wanted maurice to invest there money. My opinion, they looked suspicious.  They kept stating that they had four or five houses, and that they were cousins. They also claimed that they lived in corona.

At the end of the day, maurice metters refused their business. They cussed him out and stormed out. One of them said that there dad was a cop. So I did a little homework and found outthat they did not own any house and that they had been shopping around 4 other investmentnt firms with the same story. I asked one investment company and they said that the two women where accusing them of stealing 30,000. So they are both scam artist looking for capital gain. Be on the look out!
