I thought like wow… that’s great. I thought I had regain back my reputation as a tester after months of losses on my account… so happily I downloaded the EA, upzip it and thought I would get to work right away…

To my surprise, this guy/gal send the files to me in mq4 format… I mean he/she send to me the raw source code!! Again I was wow-ed… save me the trouble of decompiling to just to see what was this EA all about…

To my surprise… it was a CLONE!
