    My first scoundrel is Sergio Caruso, the developer of Primeval-EA.com

    I had a lot of people wanting this one to be listed in Performance Testing. I emailed him in March of 2010 and asked if he'd be willing to participate. He agreed.

    The problems began with his forums account. Sergio wasn't the most polite in dealing with questions in the Primeval thread. I didn't have a major issue with that. Not everyone is cut out for dealing with the general public. If he wanted to scare away potential clients in the thread dedicated to his own product, that was his loss. The problem was that he started viciously attacking the performance of other EAs in their discussion threads. I warned him to stop. He did, for awhile. Then it started up again. At that point, I banned him from the forums and ended all testing of his products at the FPA.

    Donna Forex decided to run some tests on his EA. After awhile, she chose to end the testing. Sergio didn't like this and started rudely attacking her by email. I wouldn't have known about this, but he also left a large number of negative reviews for donnaforex.com under different names so I asked her if she was having issues with Sergio. He also left a fake negative review for Forex Growth Bot.

    When I posted in the reviews about his actions, he then did something amazing. He filed an FPA Traders Court review against his own service. The text mostly attacked Donna and the FPA, but the review was left for Primeveal-EA. In the review, he threatened to mail things about the FPA out to his list. I've seen a copy. He's got links to some leftover anti-FPA libel from ForexGen.

    Sergio left fake reviews for others, but also left himself a 1 star review. Normally, a company owner isn't allowed to rate his own product, but I made an exception in for this scoundrel. He gets to keep the 1 star he left for himself.

    The Primeval discussion thread is even funnier than the review he left. The guy rips anyone who doesn't leap with joy over his products. It also looks like any other failures are blamed on not having the current version. I'll bet he keeps a dozen demo tests running with different settings and as soon as his current version begins to fail, he trots out the best alternate test and claims that it's his new version.

    E-A E-A Ohhhhh...

    Sometimes I find it all quite depressing. Doesn't anyone make an EA that works all the time? :mad:

    I am sure that there are EAs that work almost all the time. They just don't sell them in public for $79.90.

    I'm not sure I'd accept any EA recommendations made in a thread about how one particular EA seller is such a scoundrel. If I were the seller of any other EA, I wouldn't want my product mentioned in this thread.

    Check the FPA's Performance Tests. Also, you can start a thread in the Company Comparisons and Competitions folder.

    Hasn't it occurred to you that if there is such an EA that works all the time, wouldn't the developer rather make the millions quietly on the side and not let the cat out of the bag by offering it for sale at a mere $79.90?

    No matter what has been claimed, Brokers somehow or other losses money when we traders make money.
    If the EA works all the time, you can bet your last pip that Brokers will have a total ban on it.
