Tradeciety is a futures, stocks and Forex educational company owned and operated by Moritz Czubatinsky and Rolf Schlotmann.
Moritz claims to be 10-year professional poker player. Rolf claims to be a globetrotting day trader that spends his days lounging around 5-star resorts and eating unlimited shrimp cocktail. However, under closer scrutiny, it appears that both personas are nothing more than a marketing construct. An incarnation of softcore trader porn. A pinch of nice guy marketing combined with teasing undertones of financial freedom and homosexuality.
Does a verifiable track record of success exist with either of these characters? Apparently not.
Thanks for reading today’s review of Tradeciety
What is Tradeciety? The company is an online trading academy that is “dedicated to helping others to reach their full potential and becoming professional traders.” So says the promotional website.
The company is offering two trading products as follows:
A) $497 Forex trading course. This course supposedly offers step-by-step, swing trading and day trading strategies that are guaranteed to work on daily bars, 4-hour bars, 1-hour bars, 15-minute bars, and 5-minute bars.
The course claims that only 30-minutes each day is required to be a full-time professional trader. Additionally, the company claims that all of the strategies also work on Futures contracts.
B) $497 Stocks trading course. This course supposedly offers swing and breakout trend trading strategies that are also guaranteed to work on monthly, weekly, daily, and 4 hour bars.
The course claims that it works on ALL STOCK MARKETS around the world. Including the stocks markets of Venezuela and North Korea. Once again, only 30 minutes are required each day to achieve your wildest trading dreams.
Tradeciety: Rolf and Moritz
The owners of Tradeciety are a couple of guys located in Germany. Their names are Rolf and Moritz.
Moritz Czubatinsky claims to be a former professional poker player. In fact, he claims that he spent the prior 10 years earning an astounding living at the poker tables of Monaco, Las Vegas, Macau, and hundreds of online and offline poker tournaments around the world. If true, this would be absolutely wonderful.
We all know that there are many similarities between playing poker and market speculation. But is Moritz Czubatinsky really a 10-year professional poker player?
To answer this question, TradingSchools.Org reached out to Global Poker Index, which is the premier ranking agency for poker players located throughout the planet. In fact, they currently track the live play of over 550,000 poker players on all of the major online and offline poker venues. To date, they have recorded over 194,000 poker events. Quite simply, they know everyone involved on the tournament poker scene.
We asked Global Poker Index for the official tournament history and as well as any additional information that they could provide concerning Moritz Czubatinsky. We explained that he is proclaiming himself a professional poker player with a 10-year history of tournament play. The response from Global Poker Index was not encouraging. In fact, their reply was downright disheartening. Apparently, they have no record of Moritz Czubatinsky.
Moritz Czubatinsky appears to be a legendary poker player within the confines of his overactive imagination.
The co-owner of Tradeciety is Rolf Schlotmann. Everything you want to know about Rolf can be found on his extremely active social media accounts. In fact, Rolf states the following “I trade Forex and travel the world.”
His social media accounts play to all of the tired old ‘trader porn’ cliches including how Rolf travels the world with only his laptop computer. A life of complete freedom, exotic locations, and unlimited shrimp cocktail. It all looks so dreamy. Every day he spends approximately 30-minutes lounging by the pool of 5-star mega resort, where he can be seen placing his trades and stroking his laptop computer as if it were some sort of personal ATM machine. It can all be yours for only $495
Folks, is any of this real?
The Lion and the Lamb email
My next step was to discover whether either of these supposed trading guru’s is the real deal or just a couple of butthole internet marketers?
Do they have a verifiable track record that supports their supposed incredible lifestyle of world travel and unlimited shrimp cocktail? And so, I next sent out an official email directly from TradingSchools.Org. The email was gentle and kind. I was looking to write an official review. But the review needed to be accompanied by actual trading performance. I needed to see account statements.
Each of my emails is embedded with tracking links. So I can watch in real time as the emails are opened. Did either of these knuckleheads respond? Absolutely not. However, they had no problem opening and reading my string of gentle and kind emails. All were deleted.
I call these emails ‘the lion.’ Because if you don’t respond, then you know that there will be a negative consequence.
Concurrently, I sent several anonymous emails where I describe myself as a hapless, and desperate trader. A person with money to spend, but with nothing but failure to show. That I was desperately seeking the knowledge that would give me the incredible lifestyle of poolside day trading, and unlimited shrimp cocktail.
The response? No problem! These knuckleheads took that bait faster than a stripper snags a $100 bill from her underwear. Just amazing.
Truth be told, I know of no better method of smoking out frauds and phonies than using ‘the lion and the lamb’ series of emails. The scammers always take the bait.
Am I calling these buttholes scammers and frauds? No. But it sure looks like a complete and total fraud.
Wrapping things up
Another day, and yet another negative review.
I recently read that “journalists are natural skeptics.” Which gave me a great pause…am I a journalist? LOL. Oh that’s funny. I certainly didn’t expect to be in this position–writing about investment fraud. In fact, when I first launched this stupid blog, I thought that finding credible investment advice was going to be fun and easy. Boy was I wrong.
In retrospect, I have only learned that humans are basically prone to deception. We take from each other with such callousness. There is very little compassion and honesty outside of family and friends. The internet has only exacerbated and exaggerated our base instincts.
Sorry to be so dark. Thanks for reading.
