    I received the following solicitation via email.

    Here is the trading statement that was attached to the message as an image file:
    [​IMG]
    The format is similar to HTML statements that are sent from brokers to their clients via email.

    However this statement has been edited in a number of ways:
    • Some digits have been removed from the account number
    • The name has been completely removed
    • The title (broker name) should be in the middle
    • "Floating P/L" is -346.13 however the statement shows no open trades

    Beware, possibly a big scammer.

    Beware guys, this might be another scammer coming to your home. Don't donate your money to this company. You don't know who is behind the scene.

    Of course, no one should go for it.

    The guy does not use SL. He placed a 5 lots order with this small account then went to bed ! Then he has got a huge 5115 loss.

    It looks like he has never been told about money management.

    Not displaying open trades is one thing. Saying there are no open trades when there's a floating P/L is quite another. This clearly shows that the statement has been altered, so none of the data displayed can be considered reliable.
