    I would like to inform you and your users of what I would call 'misleading testing' by a guy called Mike Saunders. I wouldn't say exactly that he's a scamer but his conclusions are quite misleading in the way of him 'independently testing' various software and courses.
    Upon looking for 'independent' reviews on google (along with FPA's fantastic service) a sponsored link named 'forexmike.com' states 'Learn The Truth About.........'
    You request an 'independent review' by submitting your email. I wanted additional reviews on Ivy Bot as most google reviews seemed to be conducted by 're-sellers' and therefore not particularly unbiased.
    I got my review and it seemed ok but at the bottom, there was a link to purchase Ivy Bot. There was no hiding the fact that as a favour of his testing and unbiased opinion, 'Mike' would earn a little commission if bought through him. Very reasonable I thought, as I enjoyed the review.
    Next on my list was the brilliant (and directly purchased) Forex Rebellion. All excellent reviews on FPA but hey, 'forexmike' had tested this too. I tried a request but was told 'email already registered' so I used another.
    When I got the report, I was disappointed and also quite angry. What I got was the Ivy Bot review with a few personalized tweaks and absolutely identical initial losses and initial gains (after certain suggested adjustments).
    This guy just seems to be editing a standard letter to suit whatever it is you've requested, without apparently doing any real testing whatsoever and is probably making good money as an 'affiliate.'
    I would not trust this guy's opinions and would certainly not purchase through him.
    A lesson learned, just stick to good old FPA!
