I ordered on report for 100. I received it and it was useless. They said it came with a money back guarantee. I called and was switched over to a broker who told mr it was just that I had ordered the wrong product. I am a fairly sophisticated investor, but this guy asked me many questions about my investment goals and unsold me on a $2500 product that he said would be perfect for me. When I got it, it was a joke. It gave one recommendation on a highly speculative stock in the commodity sector. We all know this sector is tanking. They offered a full refund. They do not answer my emails or if I phone they just try to sell me more. No commitment to return money yet. A red flag I missed was they asked me to phone my credit card company and tell them to expect the charge so it was not denied. I mow realize this was because they are known to be scammers by the fraud departments,
. I feel like a dope. Do not ever deal with these guys. They offer even less than you can get by reading one issue of the Financial Times!
