Forex Turtle Trading / Scammed me out of $5000

1 CA, United States

I was called and told about an "expert" Forex trader, named Russell Sands. The caller said that if I invested $5000 he would guarantee that I would make at least 4x my investment back in 1 year!! The method would be automatic investing in the forex market. You wouldn't do anything; just sit back and let Russell do the work! Well it started off o.k. My $2000 grew to almost $6000 in just a few short months. But then it started going downhill fast. I watched it go down to to $239. In utter frustration I took what little was left, out of my account.
So in short this SCAM cost me almost $7000!!
I have in my files charts put out by this "expert" showing the record of his accomplishments all concocted I'm sure. I was even told at one point that if I had invested at least $10, 000 I would have been invested in more trading sessions. At some point I could see on a daily basis that I was losing money; when I called, I was told that the rules for the "small" guy had changed. Well LA DEE DAH! I feel as though I got Royally Screwed!!!
