I have never posted anything on this website but feel I need to since I have experience working with Futuresprofile.com and SAS. He set me up with a 20 day free trial to prove my trading skill before he funds me. He has not asked me for any money. I am halfway through the trial and looking forward to getting funded. I know of two other people who recommended SAS who are honest and I respect their opinions. I am not too sure what this post will do but I have found through experience that I have to make my own opinions. As of now I have not sent him any money and as long as that continues and he gives me a funded account I don't see how this is a scam. I can keep everybody posted through this process and l will give you all my honest opinion.
I don't know why SAS75 did not come forward with his identity for being the owner of Futureprofile website but all i can say is that his company is legit and he walks the talk.Started with a demo on his company and i am now managing a funded account - the payouts are weekly with profit sharing @ 50-50. I don't usually do this kind of vouching stuff.But just because people are praising TST and badmouthing Futuresprofile - i thought i would pitch in my two cents.
I have just completed a 20 day free trail to get funded at no cost to me. Free demo account was provided. I was left completely alone to get on with it and prove myself, no marketing, emails,….. ext. and all that BS which is great. I failed to get funded. My experiences was so positive that I emailed and thanked him for the opportunity

<<< First of all, let me say that I have been a long time member in bigmiketrading. I have alot of respect for the owner and administrator of this site but I have to set things straight about futuresprofile.
I got introduced to the owner of futuresprofile through a trading room. I looked into bigmike´s reviews and I still went ahead and allowed SAS, the owner, to fund me. When I got the broker contract (Vankar) to have trading rights, I saw his name and one has only to put his name on google to realize that this is in no way sketchy or a scam.
The way he promoted himself in bigmike was not the most fruitful;however, I truly believe he didn´t do it to deceive. In any case, I got a 25k account with Vankar where I could trade and everyday Vankar would send me my trading reports as if it was my own account, plus I always had the choice to withdraw profits.
I did hit the loss limit so I got closed out but just to say futuresprofile is for real. Everything will be done with Vankar (a broker like AMP, Interactive Brokers or any other major). He just puts the money in so there´s no dealing with futuresprofile.
I will highly recommend you to try it because once Vankar sends you the trading rights on his account and you see who he is (he cannot lie to a US broker and open an account). The rules are more benevolent than any other prop.
I am writing this review because I got pleasently surprised and had to say something about a place that looks like a sketchy scam but in reality is a legit business that may rival and even be better than many other props.
I am in no way affiliated with futuresprofile and I can email people who are interested my exchange of emails with the owner of futuresprofile so that they see that this is a legit futures prop firm. Why this interest in defending him? Because there will be many traders that are suspicious about this prop because of all the forum posts but these posts connote a picture that could not be further from the truth and because I am grateful to the owner that he gave me the opportunity to trade for him.

Thats the way I look at it too......as i said before....
WHO CARES if he was trying to PROMOTE his service with another name (basically saying, "hey guys look at this good service"), lol.....childish, YES but whatever! If one can get funded (as you did yourself) then why not! THERE IS NOTHING TO LOSE!
In my opinion there was no LYING ABOUT IDENTITY, this is not a court of law, just a forum to post stuff about trading....he posted in an anonymous name saying to check out the servive (bypassing some loopholes here)
Anyway it's about TIME someone else offers competition to TOpStepTrader and for FREE too!

Those of you who say he didn't lie about his identity should read the thread. It's only 3 pages long.
He intentionally and willfully deceived the members of the community. I would strongly encourage people to not trust someone who is so brazen about lying.

I've signed up with MES CAPITAL for a FREE trial last month and unfortunately failed (greed screwed me over). I didn't receive any spam e-mail or any marketing stuff from them. I have a friend who got funded and lost $5k and they didn't take anything from him and he still has another chance to get funded again after 3 months. This is the best win win situation, you are not paying anything to go to trial, even if you lose money after you get funded nobody slaps your wrist. Basically this is risk free and stress free partnership, it's every trader's dream. Another positive perspective regarding MES is that they helped me see some mistakes and received advice on how to improve,all for FREE. Who does that ? Only someone that wants to help traders.
Don't trust my word for it guys, go see for yourself. You'll have nothing to lose.
I just got funded by MES Capital. I traded for 18 days and grew the account up over $3000. I talked to SAS and he decided to fund me before the 20 day trial was over. My live is account is active and will keep you all posted.
