Very defensive response. Usual response of a salesman.
The response of your friend “harmattan” was predicably on-script as well.
Have seen hundreds of these conversations over the years.
New member asks for information/help/advice on proposed association with certain company …
Other new member - no previous posts - jumps to the rescue with the perfect answer - reassurance to the eyeballs …
Newby then says he will give it a try …
Newby then reports his wonderful early success …
When challenged on veracity, newby becomes quite indignant that he doesn’t know what you are on about … sigh.
“Skeptical posts” are used to give an air of honesty as most clued-up traders know.
Have been in this business since 2004 and have seen all of you jokers come and go.
Tell-tale is usually a recent join-up and association with advice on certain products.
Usually first posts.
Usually associated with another fly-in who also has a brand-new membership.
Usually a question about a product.
Usually a response to the newby.
Neither of these blow-ins "know each other."
Neither of them have made any other posts/or made any other significant contribution to the forum sites.
Your advice “You could try reading before commenting perhaps” applies to yourself.
I have already done my homework and you, buddy, fit the mould of the perfect scamster.
In fact in the forex business, rule #1 is to assume the proponent is a charlatan until proven otherwise.
I’d say with my eyes closed, that you are a couple of promoters drumming up business.
They all try it.
I don’t take offence at anything you say - been around too long to get offended by people who steal other people’s money. And I don’t apologise to anyone for pointing out the risk of following “experts” who give free advice to others, under the circumstances this has occurred here.
If you quack like a duck, look like a duck and get found in the ponds where ducks swim, you can’t get upset if you get shot at.
