I do know Alvaro since we studied together in the US long time ago. Very Decent and honest person, we are still friends. I do know he started working in startforex after all you have mentioned happened. He told me that got a email from Mr.Madruga asking for help and he told him he would do everything in his hand to get his money back. Sounds like it worked. I do know also that the company at that time changed owners, maybe for that reason things got out of hand.
So , before the "judgement day" wait to see what happens , also before associating the word scammer with the real name of an honest man like Alvaro should be more carefully done. Am I correct Mr. Eliezer Lim?
Now its 4 companies also youtradefx + startforex + fxgbank +velocity4xI really like your style. Get them scammers!
