I am sorry that you had to face such difficulties. But I think you haven't lost faith in trading yet, because you share your observations and experiences.
I wish you success, because you obviously deserve it for all your time and effort.
I kind of feel like you are preaching to the choir here I think most active members here are quite cautious about where they put their money. This forum is already a good place for naive people to learn because of how much awareness is raised about scammers. I do agree though that discussion dedicated to finding trustworthy companies would be a useful addition.
