I have been scammed as well. Fortunately I have not lost my life's savings. Though I have done some research and am in the process of opening a case with the CFTC. They are interested and if there is anyone else out there that is having trouble getting their money back, you can send me an e-mail and I will give you the name of my investigator. You can then get in touch with him directly. It is important to not delay on your issue as there is a statute of limitation.
