    elegant-trading.com/ SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This scam is currently being pimped VERY heavily by one of the worst ponzi scamming crooks on the net!

    Ken Russo is claiming that the scamming admin of this hyip is offering to refund all principle to the sheep that Ken cons into this scam (in case of program failure...YEAH, LIKE THAT WILL HAPPEN!)

    Anyways, here is the email string that Ken is using to scam his SHEEP! It is very long, but it gives a good look into the demented, warped brain of a notorious ponzi pimping scam artist!

    Hello Again Everyone,

    Here is Christian's response to the issues discussed in my earlier
    message to him. See copy of that update below.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi Ken,

    I'm glad to answer all your questions:

    1. Sure. It would be great if you can share some of the funds I sent
    with your downlines.

    2. That is correct. We will fully refund all the members who will join
    under your referral link in case of unexpected problems with the program.
    That's my promise to you.

    3. There is always risk in the online money making industry. However,
    our system uses no leverage along with the unique technologies enabling
    us to significantly minimize the risks while trading currencies and to
    generate profits offered on our corporate website. I fully understand
    that people are tired of the false promises that never quite work out
    but we believe that our program is really something different and we
    are gonna prove it in the nearest future because we created an innovative
    online platform that is easily accessible to anyone in the world and we are
    proud that it will profit thousands of our members all around the world.
    By the way, you can see some of the trading reports using the link below:

    Christian

    Now it is time to move forward with the contest wherein $5000 will be
    distributed to the winning participants. In order to participate in the contest
    you must join Elegant Trading at this link.....

    https://elegant-trading.com/?ref=krussoISASCAMMER

    As I stated in an earlier update, many of you have already joined as a
    free member and others have joined and have already made an investment.
    It does not matter if you are a free member or a vested member nor
    does it matter what time you join. Everyone will have an equal chance
    to benefit from the contest.

    To be crystal clear, you must join the program in order to receive the
    contest details. I will allow about 24 hours for everyone to register at
    the site. This period during which you may join will end at 6 PM EST
    tomorrow evening, Tuesday, April 11. Then I will then compile a team
    update list and I will forward the contest details only to the folks on that
    list.

    Note - some folks have reported a problem with the captcha code during
    the sign-up process. I had the same problem when I registered. I tried a
    different browser and it worked fine. If you do have this or any other issue
    please contact admin/founder Christian Jodar directly at......

    elegantcorp.net@gmail.com

    Watch for the next update which will be sent only only to those who have

    I received this message from Christian regarding the STP payment....

    "Seems like your STP account has exceeded daily volume. I was

    sent later today or tomorrow if the system will let me do this".

    Here is the message I have sent to Christian this morning.....

    Hi Christian,

    I am confirming that I have received the funds to my STP and Payza
    accounts. Thank you very much. Before I proceed I would like your
    response to the following matters discussed yesterday.

    1. Are you in agreement with my proposed contest whereby I will
    share these funds with the folks who join at my link?

    2. Are you offering a guarantee that you are removing 100% of the risk
    for anyone who joins at my link and that they will receive a full refund
    of principal if there are any problems with the program?

    3. Most importantly, with regard to the guarantee, the only way you can
    offer such a guarantee lies in the ability of your company to produce revenue
    via the trading of currencies. The following mission statement is found at
    your website....

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "At Elegant Trading we have a truly engaged, well trained team of trading
    experts to assist our customers in the world of investment. We work closely
    with first time and less experienced investors and advise and support our
    clients with the best information from our experts to realize maximum profits
    with minimum risk. Working with our company, Elegant Trading, will help
    our investors make the wise investment decisions and reap lucrative returns.
    Our philosophy is to work on lower margins to allow our clients higher leverage.

    There is a complexity associated with Forex Trading, but only experienced
    traders are able to benefit from trading Forex. It is the goal of Elegant Trading
    to make sure our clients gain the maximum return from their investments. We
    offer solutions to investors who want to participate in online trading, but lack
    the time to enter the world of the Forex Trading market. The strongest advantage
    we have over our competitors is the insurance and flexibility in investing funds.
    Utilizing several investment pools allows us to maintain consistent high interest
    rates for our clients".
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have seen many programs making the similar claims. However, in most
    cases, these claims have been false and the programs were nothing more than
    ponzi schemes. For example, here are just a few of the many messages I am
    receiving, all of which express a common concern......

    "Ok! I joined and giving it a try and I deposit $20 compounding. As you know
    most of theses program don't last for more than 3 weeks of less! If the admin
    is a honest person and knows how to manage this program we all can make
    some good income! I hope it lasts!" Rolando M

    "Hi Ken, Reminds me of Profitable Sunrise, but with a VERY nice website. I
    got into PS relatively early and developed quite a nice downline. Was earning
    thousands daily! Great one, but too bad it was a Ponzi and ended. This ET looks
    much more credible, and they answer all the questions with what we like to hear.
    Ummm, tasty! Even if it should turn out to be a Ponzi, we and our people will
    make good money - IF it lasts for a while. I look forward to your honest assessment.
    And I will join through your link now. Also interested in your Contest! Once in, I
    will alert my list and advertise too, so maybe you'll be sending me some money!
    Cheers from yacht Naga, currently in Langkawi but normally in Thailand"!
    Capt Jack

    "Ken, I need to find out some in depth details about this company. How can we
    trust them with only 4 days old. Do they have a track record"? Keith L

    In response to all of the above, what information can you provide with regard
    to the trading activities in which your company is involved. Please provide as
    many details as possible so that current members and prospective member alike
    can proceed with the knowledge that Elegant Trading is a viable and long-term
    project as opposed to just another ponzi like countless other programs which
    have preceded it.

    Thanks you very much.

    Ken
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    End

    I will send another update when I receive Christian's response.

    Many of you have already joined Elegant-Trading as free members.

    Some of you have joined and already have made an investment.

    It is not necessary to send a message advising me that you have joined.
    Every time someone joins at my link I receive a message from admin
    with the subject "Elegant-Trading - You have a new referral joined under
    you". The message provides me with the username and email address of
    the new member which I will use to compile a team update list.

    Greetings Everyone,

    A new program has just launched called Elegant Trading. This is
    a totally passive investment opportunity.

    Today I received the following message from the program admin,

    Hi Ken,

    I'm the admin of elegant-trading.com which was launched 4 days ago.
    I offer you $10,000 directly to your STP or Payza account if you agree
    to promote our program. Also I can guarantee you that your direct
    referrals will be insured and I will refund them all in case something
    unexpected will happen to our program. Please let me know if you're
    interested.

    Sincerely,
    Christian

    My response.....

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi Christian,

    I do not understand how you are able to make such an offer. However,
    if the offer is legitimate, I would use 50% of the funds ($5000) to promote
    a contest to my group wherein there would be 20 winners who would each
    receive $250 to place into your program. I would expect to refer at least 150
    to 200 folks to the program based upon the guarantee in your message.

    I see that Paul Abramson has given your project a Premium listing at his
    MNO blog.

    I have several associates who reside in the UK. Is it possible for one or more
    of them to visit with you at the 120 Moorgate address?

    I will watch for your reply.

    Ken
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am waiting for Christian's response.

    Meanwhile, here is the link to my site so you can become familiar with
    the program.....

    https://elegant-trading.com/?ref=krusso

    You will see that you can engage for as little as $20 which provides a
    return of 1.6% daily.

    There are 2 additional plans which offer 1.8% ($500 minimum) and
    2.1% ($1000 minimum) daily.

    As stated in the FAQ - "Interest payments will be credited to your Elegant
    Trading account 7 days a week including weekends and public holidays.
    We process withdrawal requests 7 days a week as well".

    Also of interest is the compounding feature which allows you to select
    any level of compounded return.

    Payment options are.....

    SolidTrustPay
    PerfectMoney
    Bitcoin
    Payeer
    Payza
