Introduction to InvestDefense (This is NOT a Trading Meetup)

Attention Please! This is not a Trading Meetup! (I hope this prevents confusion lol.)

Last Night at our regular Trading Meetup, 11/15/12, we got to meet RJ Toledo and heard a little about his organization, InvestDefense:

RJ is a former FBI agent and the venture is run by himself and other former Bureau agents. The goal is to provide research into investments, preventing fraud before it can happen rather than chasing the crime after it occurs. RJ explained that most frauds are never investigated.

The idea is sound and this could be a valuable organization for members to examine. I hope to meet with RJ again soon and learn more.


Enough financial fraud, lies, false promises! Our Community was founded by FBI Agents to investigate, research & test ALL financial products & services to find ones PROVEN to work & are the very BEST. For all investor levels: beginners to experts, no selling or bias to any product, our goal is to find RESULTS so all our members succeed!

Introduction to InvestDefense

    Interesting concept. The company that presented is just starting out and the meetup was almost like a focus group rather than a presentation. I wish them the best success.

    This meetup is posted as something that may be of interest to members. Our group does not endorse Investdefense. I cannot respond to whether it looks like a scam. I have met and spoken with Mr. Toledo, but have not had any extensive interviews with him nor checked his credentials. Anyone utilizing this, or any service should do just that.
    Individuals are responsible to do your due diligence.

    My understanding is this is a registered private investigation agency run by retired FBI agents. Private investigative services are not new, this is simply a new approach to providing the service. Investigation is no guarantee of safety. Several individuals who investigated Lou Pearlman still invested.

    It is intriguing idea. My hope is that it is legitimate. I would like to see them dig into the financial education industry as well as trading services and websites. I have a whole list of providers for them to examine and I am sure the results would truly be eye opening.

    This looks like a total scam to me. Be careful!
