Robert Rivera sold me on having him trade my forex account. I put 100,000 in Dukascopy a Swiss forex account.
I flew to Chicago to meet with him and go over his strategies. He was nice. At dinner he told me how just the prior day he closed a huge position that would have netted me a huge amount. His website is no longer there but it was mandala.com He told me how he lives in Switzerland mostly but stays with family in chicago. The Iowa address is is just a mailing address. Anyway this 'trader' got me all pumped up about his superior trading abilities and how he traded for a big company bla bla. He even did an interview for the Vic Noble group (Vic has a very legit forex course) Oh they were so impressed with his great results ! ooooo ahhhhhh Robert - you are such a great trader !!
So anyway, I fly back and no more than 4 days later he traded my 100k account into the ground losing 80,000 !!!!! He made HUGE risky trades which is a no no in forex and any BASIC trader knows never to do.He went on to tell me that he has had such a bad week and that it was unusual and how he lost a bunch of money of other clients too and felt 'so bad ' about it. Then he had the balls to say he wanted another chance at the acct and that he was trading better on demo and feeling better about trading bla bla. I said no. I was in such shock that someone would run money into the ground.
He promised he would make money back on his acct and pay it all back to me.
Robert is a scam, perhaps ponzi, criminal.
Dukasopy of course backs him and basically told me they are not responsible for any traders (true but screw their schwiss asses anyway for being associated with such scum. If there is anything I can do or whatever someone let me know. I just happened to look on this sight and see someone else has the exact experience with Robert. So whoever you are, contact me !! I want to know what we can do to stop this criminal from ripping people off.
