 DO NOT PURCHASE FULL THROTTLE FOREX. Mark Deaton does not respond to emails, is personally abusive and the course material is nothing but the same old trading techniques he claims don't work! MARK DEATON DOES NOT RESPOND TO EMAILS I purchased the course for $97 on July 28, 2015. After payment, a screen popped up containing a PDF and various videos. I was able to open the PDF but when I closed it, the screen containing the course closed as well. When I found it again, I found that it was protected by password. This was now a few hours after purchasing the course and I had not received log in instructions via email. I wrote to Deaton at 6:44 PM and asked for log in instructions. He did eventually respond . . . five hours later and replied that "he had sent them again" and that I "needed to check spam and junk folders." Nothing came and I wrote back three times (11:34 PM) and the next day at 12:05 and 12: 47 PM to tell him I still had no log in instructions. I never received a reply. Finally, 48 hours later with still no log in instructions . . . at 12:47 PM on 30 July . . . I wrote demanding a refund as per his add six-month immediate money back guarantee. Again, I never heard from the guy. The next day (72 hours later and still no log in instructions) I filed a dispute with Paypal and on 1 Aug, ONLY IN RESPONSE TO THE DISPUTE, did I get a refund. DEATON IS PERSONALLY ABUSIVE: This is the exact email I got from him after he told Paypal to refund me the money. It is hilarious. Ask yourself: Is this someone you want to do business with? From: Mark [] Sent: Saturday, August 01, 2015 10:11 AM Subject: RE: I WANT A REFUND NOW! Never Received the Videos?? They are in the same area where the manual is. Are you kidding??? Over 10 videos and a 2 hour webinar. Ill gladly do your refund. I cant belive your bullshit complaint on paypal. What a baby. You need to learn to relax a little a*****e. What a jerk. GET LOST Out of 500 new customers you are the ONLY ONE who couldnt find the videos. What a joke. COURSE MATERIAL IS A RE-HASH OF OLD TECHNIQUES I won't actually reveal what this clown is offering because this is America and he has a right to sell what he wants. Caveat emptor my friends! Here's what I will tell you . . . one of the tools he uses was developed in the 1970s and another in the early 1980s! The third tool he uses (which he claims gives him 70% accuracy) is, to me, completely unreliable and just an unproven myth of the markets. Put it this way . . . he certainly provides no research to show that it is 70% reliable. So after reading his ad for FULL THROTTLE FOREX ( and then scanning his PDF . . . I burst out laughing. Out loud. This course is a joke. Now . . . in fairness to Deaton, maybe the PDF is the tip of the iceberg and all great mysteries will be revealed in his videos. But after suffering through some of his other videos on youtube . . . I doubt it. My advice, keep your $97 in your wallet or donate it to a good cause. Don't waste time and money on this. And by the way . . . there were clues in his ad . . . I was just too greedy to pay attention. For example he writes in his ad: "In my mad scramble to get this into your hands, I’ve only had time to approach 3 long-time subscribers to try it out. But as you’ll see, they’ve been able to seize a vault of cash almost overnight…" and one of these people . . . "I made a point to share it with someone with no FOREX experience at all. She’s in the United Kingdom and she’s only traded stock options before now. I’m happy to be candid and tell you her results are thru paper trading. But I told her to just follow the (simple) rules and trade as much as she can in one week" So, one of three testers only paper traded???? Like I said, caveat emptor!

Once again . . .

AUTHOR: - ()

Deaton . . . You were not "working with me."  Look pal, how can you claim to be so busy with your thousands of emails and then claim you were working with me?   LOL  You make no sense.  The truth is that you ignored my emails.  Hey . . . maybe you had a great reason for doing so, but the point is that you ignored them. OK?  And so I had to ask PayPal for my refund. 

As I've now said THREE TIMES . . . I was able to open the PDF . . . but NOT . . . repeat . . . NOT . . . the rest of the course.   Maybe you should find a course on "reading and comprhension."   As for the guy who's making money with this . . . . terrific.   Good for you.  If it's true then that's excellent.  I reviewed the method and his customer service (or lack thereof).  Let readers decide which of us to believe.

Mark Deaton NO SCAMMER


I have been using Deaton's Forex trading system for several years now. Not making Millions but do have a nice side income.. The Full Throttle Forex program when it first came out had some distribution problems but not do to anything Deaton did. When the fixes where done and the dust was settled Deaton was standing right there asking who needs help. Hey s*** happens. When the owner gives out his direct phone number and personal email address that alone say he is no one trying to scam you . He stands buy all of his programs and I never felt I was being scammed or hustled. I want to be very clear I do not personally know Mark Deaton, I am just one of his customers and saw this non sense complaint so I am adding my 2 sense using my own 3 years experience dealing with him. Take it for what is worth, but I have been doing good on his Forex system. Jim LoScalzo

#1)  You were not "working with me."  I sent you repeated emails. You responded to ONE and the response was useless.  It's not my problem that you receive "3000 emails a day."  If you are going to market something then hire the staff to handle your "3000 emails a day."   Your customer support is as bad as the stuff you're peddling.

#2)  As I stated very clearly in my report, I was able to open the PDF.  But the PDF is only a tiny fraction of the entire course.  The rest was unaccessible.

Quit whining.  Take the feedback like a man.  Learn from this as a man does.  Fix your problems.

Interesting Complaint here!!

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

I called this guy a baby because while Im working with him he files a complaint against me.  WHO DOES THAT?? You see he imagined that I was just sitting at a computer waiting for him to email me when actually I get about 3,000 emails a day and often it takes time for me to reply.  I would have gladly given him his refund had he just asked.  Instead he wanted to vent his frustration at me agressively as possibe.  I alos like how how slams the content that he claims he ha dno access too, another indication of his mischievous intent.
