I would like to tell you of my experience with Global Master Traders, Peter Bryant and Aaron Furst.

It began two weeks ago.

• I requested the opportunity to attend a FREE live (as advertised) webinar promoting how to trade the Eminis for Income via the globalmastertraders.com.au and also learnemini.com web sites.

• It was obvious that what was supposed to be a live webinar, was in fact a recording. I picked this up when I asked questions as there was no response, except for a text comment from Peter Bryant advising that all questions would be answered at the end of the webinar. Mr Furst did not stop to answer my questions, he couldn’t as it was recorded.

I was really interested and thought I could make some money out of this.

• I rang Peter Bryant to advise him I am ready to join the programme and asked if he could send me an invoice to pay $9,900.00 for the course.
• I also sent him an email stating the above.

Peter Bryant emailed me an invoice.

• The invoice was for $9000 + 900 GST.
• I had my accountant check it out to see if it was correct
• The ABN was not under GLOBAL MASTER TRADERS
• It was the ABN of PETER BRYANT
• Peter Bryant has no GST registration

Therefore Peter Bryant was trying to extort money from me with a fraudulent invoice and also defraud the Australian Government by collecting GST under a NON GST registered name or business.

The authorities have been advised.

The websites globalmastertraders.com.au and learnemini.com have now removed all Australian address and phone contact details.

If this isn't a scam, then I would like to know what is.

All proof can be provided for those concerned about Global Master Traders, Peter Bryant and Aaron Furst and from my research there is no such business name as Learn Emini registered in Australia. Just a domain name.

Be warned

Well, well, well! Since reporting a colleague's experience with Peter Bryant recently (see "Where to start with eminis" on this forum) and the fact that this organisation is operating without the benefit of an AFSL or authorised representative status, I have been curious and have been monitoring their web sites.

I too noticed that Global Master Traders Brisbane office appears to have been closed down, that the company no longer has a phone number, and their head office has been moved to an address in Singapore, which also doesn't have a phone number. This seems a bit odd for a distribution company trying to sell a product via the internet, don't you think?

All very interesting! Makes me want to investigate further.

Hi,

I am the Aaron Furst referred to in this thread. I just wanted to pop my head in and say hello. I had been made aware of Ruby's post last week and wanted to clear up the facts.

The internet is an interesting medium. Any person can create an anonymous username and post in an attempt to discredit/slander.
I have been in the industry for a long, long time and never read, heard or seen any negativity towards my education on the internet until now.

So for anyone interested... a quick summary of why this cyber stalking towards me has been extended to the Aussie Stock Forums.

Six months ago the business relationship with my then Australian distributor RealTraders ended over a disagreement. As with any relationship business or personal, statistics tell us the relationship has the potential to turn very nasty. This is where my old business relationship is at the moment. Life
goes on and I just have to take it on the chin.

When the relationship broke down in October last year (2009) the Australian distributor said in an email and to a person (who has now provided a statement to QLD police) that she would do everything she could to bring me down. Emini For Income was the only product/service RealTraders was promoting, thus when RealTraders discontinued promoting Emini For Income she would go out of business and lose a substantial amount of money.

Since launching my new website learnemini.com , the site has been spammed continuously. I have had one location in Southport QLD where my previous distributor is located (may/or may not be her) visit my site more than 1000 times in 3 months. Quite incredible...

Since this cyberstalking campaign on ASF started, I have received 100's of contact forms through my website - see two examples below:

Message body:
Take your snorkel....You need it.

The poster Sharone claims she sat one of my webinars. I have never heard of or had a Sharone sit my Webinar. I have also never had an Australian office, address or phone number on my website learnemini.com as Sharone alleges.

Sharone's inaugural post on Aussie Stock Forum is that of a concerned citizen warning every ASF member away from my education. Sharone has never had a relationship or rapport with ASF members, this is her first post. I don't think any reader here is going to be mislead by her post, they will see the post for what it is, an obvious attempt to discredit/slander.

Whereas Ruby, she started posting here when Realtraders commenced business last year Feb 2009 and if you look at the history of her posting she has discredited every firm she was previous employed with.

I am posting here using my real name. I urge Sharone and Ruby to disclose their real names. If the information they allege is true and they have alerted their local authorities, why would Ruby and Sharone be afraid of posting under their real names?

The next time I am in Australia I will follow up this continued cyberstalking with the investigating officer.

See here for more information on stalking en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberstalking

Anyway, that's enough from me, I apologise for interrupting the discourse on this forum, however I felt I had to retort to the lies posted by Ruby and Sharone.

I will sign off saying that every single testimonial on my website is absolutely 100% legitimate. I am extremely proud of my testimonials. Learnemini.com is an open book and completely transparent. All of my students who wish to be, are accessible to anyone who has questions.

If anything, Ruby and Sharone's post have made readers do their due diligence regarding any education course, including mine, which is a great thing.

Best regards to all,
Aaron Furst.

P.S. The disagreement between myself and RealTraders... I am sure you can guess what it was over? You got it! The disagreement was over Peter Bryant – ex RealTraders. That's why the attacks against him in this forum have been so slanderous and defaming .

Thank you for providing the name of Real Traders. After reading your post I contacted them and as I suspected, there is another, completely different side to the story!

However, this has nothing to do with the argument between you and them. It is concerned with lies perpetrated by your distributor; a recorded webinar advertised as a live webinar, and a fraudulent invoice sent to me by Peter Bryant charging me $9,000 + $900 GST for your emini course, when he is not registered for GST. The ABN on the invoice (ABN no 32 635 054 419) is still not registered for GST. This information is in the public domain and anyone can look it up, so stating it here is neither a lie nor is it slanderous or defamatory.

If doing due diligence is a good thing, why are you so upset by the revelation of this nasty little fact? Don’t you agree it is a good thing to weed dodgy operators out of the industry?

Of course you didn’t see anyone called ‘Sharone’ in one of your webinars! That is my ASF identity, and as it was a recording, you probably weren’t even there!

I don’t imagine anyone is interested in your petty claims of cyberstalking. You have made no attempt to address the issues I raised in my post of 5th April, but have instead sought to muddy the waters by making personal attacks on me and another forum member.

Just where do you really live, Mr Furst? Is it in Singapore, Florida, New Zealand, Hong Kong? Or is it actually the Gold Coast?

Goodness, Mr Furst! You have worked yourself up into a lather!! Cyberstalking? Slander? Defamation? Sounds like you are writing your own melodrama.

I notice you have not refuted anything I have said in my posts, but chosen instead to deflect attention away from it all by attacking me personally and drawing illogical conclusions about my past.

Until recently Global Masters Traders did have an Australian office address and phone number. It was a virtual office in the AMP centre in Brisbane. These details have now been removed and replaced (twice) with different Singapore addresses.

Let’s move to the allegation of lies, shall we? If you read my posts carefully, and without the attendant hysteria, you will see that I have made no reference anywhere to the quality of your course. I challenge you to point out and refute, a single lie, or instance of a slanderous or defamatory statement in my posts. I can back up everything I have said.


If anything, Ruby and Sharone's post have made readers do their due diligence regarding any education course, including mine, which is a great thing.
.

Exactly, Mr Furst! This is what my colleague was doing (Beginner’s Lounge, Where to start with eminis) and I assume that is what Sharone was doing, which was fortunate for him / her, wasn’t it?

You've had your little dummy spit, so run along now and kick someone else’s sandcastle. There’s a good boy.

It appears that Aaron Furst nor Peter Bryant cannot address the charges in my posts. Silence is an admission of their guilt I say and therefore confirming the scam they are operating.

As of today, there is still no GST registered ABN for Mr Bryant nor Global Master Traders.

Having been provided with leads to investigate the history of both of these characters further, some extraordinary facts have been revealed.

Documentation supporting these claims has been forwarded to the site administrator of this forum.

Aaron Mark Furst has a Criminal Record which placed him in jail in Australia in 2002 for apx 6 months. (Apx September 02) (Furthermore, from ABN records that are available to the public online, an Aaron M Furst and ******* **** operated a business called Asian Super Models during 2000 and 2003)

On the 31st January 2008 Aaron Furst was escorted from the Gold Coast Qld by Police to Villawood Detention Centre in Sydney, NSW for apx 3 months for being a non Australian Citizen with a criminal record.

Peter Bryant was a Yacht Broker in Hervey Bay, Qld between June 2004 and July 2007. He left a large debt behind to a Gold Coast business of which is still outstanding.

Their advertised international addresses are all VIRTUAL offices. They are serviced offices run by SERVCORP or similar. They rent a phone number with an answer phone service and a postal address only. They do not rent any physical space.

Google maps provides some interesting visual locations on a couple of addresses listed on Mr Fursts Web site.

Both Aaron Furst and Peter Bryant operate their GLOBAL business from their laptop computers on the Gold Coast and who knows where else !

It’s not what you know. But who you know !

Thanks to “who” for providing the leads to investigate this crooked duo further.

I was on Global Master Traders webinar for few times and I think Its Great !

Excellent!! If you like listening to the same recorded webinar over and over again.

I also note, Lolita Paris, that you registered with ASF only yesterday. It wouldn't be a set up now, would it? No? Smack hand! How could I think such a thing!

Good Grief! Sharone, are you for real? The amount of energy you must have expended in this exercise boggles the mind! I stumbled on this post, and reading your entries, it appears you lost no funds, so your ferocity is hard to comprehend. I joined this forum just now to make this post. I have been one of Aaron Furst's students since Jan 09, so have 18 months association with his teaching behind me.

I have spent a lot of funds on stockmarket training in the past, but never, ever, have I experienced anything as sound and educational as that offered by Aaron. And never, ever have I ever had the pleasure to be taught by someone who appears to care about my progress. I will add that my closest trading friends are, and have been a member of Aaron's live trading room since the day they joined. I know of no one who has joined, been disappointed, and then left.

I get nothing out of this post, and am posting it simply because I think Sharone and Ruby are ill advised. Indedd, the effort they have expended reeks of an assination attempt. Perhaps they are the same person? I'm happy to pass on my experiences with Aaron Furst personally if anyone wants to contact me for my phone number. My email is mkrollxxxaapt.net.au, simply replace the xxx with @.

I am the Mervk who gave a testimonial on Aaron Furst's website, and I stand by those comments ten fold now. The testimonial was taken by Aaron's then distributor, Christine Fox. Christine, are you reading this?

Happy to talk personally to anyone interested.

Mervk
A happy trader.

Ater reading these posts, I googled Aaron Furst, it appears there is more then one Aaron Furst. I have found several, including a youngish Aaron M Furst who is a musician - Could there be an identity mixup here? The Aaron Furst I have been taught Emini trading by is certainly not the guy described above.... If you go to facebook and search for Aarom M Furst you may find this guy also, Aaron-M-Furst/100000026634108 who also is not the guy who has taught me to trade so well.

Just trying to set the record straight, as it's a shame to see the above comments attributed to someone who has helped so many of us over the last 18 months.


Cheers

A mix up? LMAO!! You would think there is little doubt which Furst they are referring to as he made an appearance here in the thread to try and counter the arguments made.

Instead of running around the forums spruiking for this Furst fellow(who nobody had even heard of before sharone and Ruby started complaining about him) and calling yourself a "trader", why don't you contribute to the forum a little and show everyone just how much of a trader this guy has turned you into by making a few calls and discussing some actual trading:2twocents

Your choice if you participate or not. Though watch those infraction points if you want it to remain your choice, they can add up quite quickly:2twocents

Thought I'd go and pay a visit to the website and check it out for myself.

Was quite interested that there are no performance figures on the site at this stage. If I was considering purchasing something like this that would be a bit of a red flag for me(though it does say under development so may be coming at a later date).

What was also very interesting was the disclaimer page:

http://www.eminiuniversity.com.au/index.php?page=disclaimer

CFTC RULE 4.41 – HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER-OR-OVER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED TRADING PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFIT OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN.

A quick look at the cftc website came up with this:

http://www.cftc.gov/tm/letters/01letters/tm01-60.htm

Under Rule 4.41(b), presentation by a CTA of the performance of a simulated or hypothetical commodity interest account must prominently display the prescribed cautionary statement of either Rule 4.41(b)(1)(i) or Rule4.41(b)(1)(ii)

So the CFTC requires that anyone presenting sim results must put the disclaimer up on their website so people are aware that they aren't trading real money.

So considering this website has that disclaimer on it, 2+2=:cautious:

Why, in the replies to this thread has sharone's initial claim about GST fraud not been addressed?
That is the first thing I would like to see some answers on from the representatives of this firm.

There is also a page on the Oz Rip Off Report about this firm.
http://www.ozripoff.com/report-view/819-eminis-scam

Pretty scary stuff.
Probably some allegations to be answered on there as well?

This will be my one and only post on these forums and on this topic. I wasn't going to buy into this, but after a chat with Merv (yes I know him), I agreed that it was unfair to see someone's personal and professional reputation be assasinated while I sat by and did nothing. Particularly a person I have developed a high regard for.
I too am a current student of Aaron Fursts. I, like Merv, joined up during his association with Real Traders. I want to state categorically that I am receiving no incentive to post this.
My experiences with Aaron have been nothing but positive and from his course I have developed the technical skills required to become a successful trader in the mini futures markets. Whether or not I have the mental skills and application is controlled by no one but myself and that will be the same for anyone.
From undertaking the course I now also have access to a group of like minded traders via our trading room. This has been invaluable in supporting and encouraging one another with the benefit of Aarons experience three nights per week. At other times we are free to log in be it while trading or just to exchange and share ideas with other traders. While this may not be for everyone, for me starting out as a novice it was and still is great.

To address a couple of other points raised.

Contact details - I have never had an issue with contacting Aaron either via email or directly to his mobile phone. All correspondence receives a reply and if the phone is unanswered, Aaron always returns the call. Having direct access has been fantastic (As was the live learning environment during the course) and Aaron's help and advice has always been valued.

Sharone - If you were so disillusioned by the webinar and had unanswered questions - why were you so keen to call up and hand over your hard earned?? Seems strange to want to pay $ 10,000 to a company you already weren't pleased with!!

Timmy given that rip off site contains very similar text to a post in this thread, it's a fairly safe bet it's come from the same source.

That's it from me. Take it or leave it, I don't mind. As stated This is the one and only post I will make as I have better things to do with my life than play childish games on an internet forum.

My experiences have been positive, I am happy with the educational value I have received and continue to receive.

Happy and successful trading to you all - because that's what its really about.
