Ask someone who was almost ripped off by a fake Forex prop trading firm anything.
Give me a minute, typing it up now.
Okay, so some asshole from Daily FX forums inboxes me saying that he liked the trades I posted and wanted to know if I'd be interested in managing 500K - 1M pounds. I said sure, but that I wasn't comfortable with my profitability as of yet.
Six more months go by and he asks if I'd be interested in managing 150K instead to get comfortable, I say that I'm still not where I need to be. This is where they offer me their 'educational program', which I offer to pay for by writing site content.
Well, I wrote them a few blog posts and now they're being quite elusive about how much I might manage, how long it will take to get there, and how exactly to do it. But oddly enough my 'mentor' did mention that other people pay him 1000 pounds a month for 5 hours of mentoring per week.
At that point I decided they were looking to fuck me.
I honestly love learning about trading, just never had the chance to work for a bank. To my credit though, I didn't give the fuckers a penny.
