Customer Question

I am being informed by US Federal Agent in Chicago that because I cannot appear as witness to a Class Suit for compensation for funds lost through rogue trader, being put through Securities and Exchange Commission, I'm being asked to put up surety bond of some USD$8,630. Does this sound right?

This does seem fraudulent. I would contact that agency office directly not through this agent and confirm the information. If you are asked to testify as a witness you are usually not required to post a bond in my experience.
