Forex Bastard also runs into a spot of bother

The bulletin boards have been awash with tales of the self-labelled Felix Homogratus, aka Felix the Bastard, but whose real name is Dmitri Chavkerov.

This is the man behind the site www.forexbastards.com, which initially attracted a strong following because of what appeared to be its honest appraisals of various trading portals, plus its advice on how to trade FX.

However, while many are quick to praise Felix, there are others who would like to bury him. This is because he has also been working as an introducing broker for certain companies, calling into question the impartiality of his site. Perhaps it is because of this that there appears to be a fair amount of Schadenfreude about a court case featuring Felix’s girlfriend, Yuliya Kalinina.

She has been charged with arranging a sham marriage purely to get a US green card. Kalinina did this by posting several adverts on a website called Craigslist, specifically stating that she only wanted a green card from the arrangement. In early 2006, Kalinina was married in a ceremony officiated by her live-in boyfriend, who just happens to be our old mate Felix, who is also apparently an internet-ordained minister. Kalinina pleaded not guilty on December 17 in a Los Angeles district court.
