    Well i just want to have some thought of members here. I went to venezuela in 2008 and when i come back i was stick with bolivares, their money. Therefore i was looking online and someone told me you can't exchange it and blabla which was true. In 2010, i started to invest with that guy called Alfredo Eduardo Ramirez. Error i made was rather to send him directly funds i should have opened an account with same broker, i didn't know at that time (against TOS of broker). With time i invested...and invested...finally what should happen happened. In december 2010 he stopped to contact me and he never came back. We had always good communication. Now im thinking about what i should do, i have following things:

    1. Copy of his passport
    2. Home adress in venezuela
    3. My bank statement (show that i have invested)
    4. His bank account data in USA (wachovia bank)
    5. Website www.planesforex.com

    I have sent a registred letter to wachovia bank with all proof few months ago and they didn't do anything. I know i wont recover any $$$, but if he can pay a lot that will worth 10 000. Well if some member can do some work for me, i will appreciate. Now im ruinned.

    Wow that really sucks man.Not really sure what you can do. International stuff like this always sucks.
    Maybe he is in trouble with the law in his own country though. Contact them.

    I'm sure they will get right on it...

    Seriously, what you need to do is bring it to all possible avenues of attention. Your bank, insurance companies, and government levels. Local police cannot help you. Honestly, I doubt you will ever see your money again or get any kind of redemption for this.

    that's what i'd be doing if someone burned me for 10 grand. stakeout the guys place and see when he around and when he's not, and see if he has anyone living with him. when he's not around, put in work on his crib. or hell, do it with him still there and put in work on his face to. if he wants to fuck you, then by all means fuck him right back. :D

    The better question is why did you come back with $10,000 in foreign currency in the first place?

    This is a great loss. That guy must have changed his residence.
