Scam

Dr Clifford Vance Cast – Scammer, Convicted Felon and Fraud 2024

Dr Clifford Vance Cast is the owner of Delta Trading Group, a notorious trading scam which has received tons of negative reviews online. 

Dr Cast has a shady criminal past and his business model is just as sketchy. 

He relies on misleading claims and false promises to get clients for his company. In the following review, I have gone through the various false claims this guy makes and exposed their truth

If you’re someone looking to spend your money on Delta Trading Group and its events, be sure to read the following review. It will help you understand why you shouldn’t trust Dr Clifford Vance Cast:

Does Dr Clifford Vance Cast Really Have a PhD?

One of the first things you might notice about Dr Cast is the title of “Dr” preceding this name. In fact, many of his staff members address him as “the Doctor”. This might make you wonder, “What kind of a doctor is he?” 

Does he have a degree in medical sciences? Or is he a PhD holder? 

It turns out, Dr Clifford Vance Cast claims to have a PhD in organizational management. However, there are no references available on which accredited university gave him his doctorate. 

Dr Clifford Vance claims that he is a globally recognized expert in Risk Homeostasis Theory. Furthermore, he claims that you can read his dissertation at the University of Minnesota library. 

Did You Know?

Proposed by Dr. Gerald Wilde, ‘Risk Homeostasis Theory’ (1982) is the theory every individual encounters an acceptable level of risk that he or she can tolerate.

However, when you check the University of Minnesota library and look for his dissertation, you won’t find it. There are no articles for him published there. 

To confirm my doubts, I enquired with the librarian to help me find any reference for this dissertation. The librarian contacted me a day later to tell me that they couldn’t find any references to Dr Clifford Vance Cast as well. 

Dr Clifford Vance gives a link to a supposed published dissertation of his at Hong Kong University but the link doesn’t lead anywhere. The page it opens is blank.

Certainly, this doesn’t look good for the “globally renowned” doctor. I even searched for him on Google Scholar, a prominent platform for research papers. Still, there was no clue of him. 

It only means one thing: Dr Clifford Vance is lying. 

Why Lie About a PhD?

It can be quite confusing for people as to why Clifford Vance would need to lie about having a doctorate. However, the reason for such false marketing is pretty simple. 

It allows him to make himself seem more credible. Having the title of “Doctor” before his name makes him seem like an experienced and knowledgeable expert of the field. 

To make the lie seem more believable, he has all of his employees refer to him as ‘the doctor’ as well. If you are unfamiliar to Delta Trading Group and are just checking out their services, you might think he is a reliable professional. In fact, many might believe that he is a thought leader in the industry because of this fake title. 

dr clifford vance cast

Actually, it’s very easy to get a phony PhD online. You can look up phrases like “get a PhD quickly” and find so-called universities which give you a PhD according to your life experience. 

To get the PhD, they only require you to pay a hefty fee and write an article about a topic of your interest. You would need to submit the article to them and they will deliver you the PhD in a few days. 

Such PhDs hold no value in the real world. But most people won’t look into the origins of Dr Clifford Vance Cast’s doctorate. They would see the title and accept it on its face value. 

When I talked to several of his students, I found this to be true. None of the people I talked to had looked into the background of Clifford’s doctorate. They thought that because he has a doctorate, he must be an expert in the subject. 

Shady Professional History of Dr Clifford Vance Cast:

When looking into Clifford, I discovered that he is also a reverend. You would find his listing at the First Church of Atheism. 

Again, this is not a usual reverends. You can become a reverend too by paying a small fee to certain service providers. They will give you an official badge and diploma in exchange for the funds. 

Things don’t end here. 

Apart from running Delta Trading Group, Dr Clifford Vance Cast runs (or used to run) multiple companies, each of which offer different kinds of services. 

His Twitter bio says that he is a Best Selling Author, commercial pilot, and research analyst. At the time of writing this review, there was no mention of having 20 years of professional trading experience. 

Moreover, he is not limited to being a day trading expert. His other ventures include a company where he builds websites for $24.95 a month as well as a website that teaches people about Forex trading. 

Below is a screenshot of one of those websites:

Similarly, he runs a few dating websites. 

Dr Clifford Vance Cast and AM Radio

Surely, Clifford is an expert in many fields. Not only is he experienced in day trading but he is also an experienced service provider of web development and forex trading education. 

Moreover, he doesn’t limit his marketing efforts to websites. He promotes himself through AM radio. 

Dr Clifford Vance Cast runs a pre-recorded one-hour show on AM radio to promote Delta Trading Group. There, he tries to market himself as an actual expert and claims to help people become full-time traders easily. 

The purpose of this one-hour show is to make people sign up for a free trial of Delta Trading Group. 

He doesn’t share anything of substance in this show. But it does get people interested in his trading program. Otherwise, he would have closed the shop and focused more on his web development or dating business. 

Dr Clifford Vance Cast is a Convicted Felon

What many of his students don’t know is that Dr Clifford Vance Cast is actually a convicted felon. He spent nearly the last 20 years in prison. 

His first arrest was for being a meth dealer in San Antonio, Texas. The police had arrested him with 400 grams of meth. 

Clifford pleaded guilty in court and went to state prison. After serving his sentence he immediately got back into drug trafficking. 

This time, the federal authorities got involved and pinched him on a RICO charge. He was charged with transporting and dealing meth over state lines. 

This case sent him to prison for 78 months. 

dr clifford vance cast

However, the Booker Vs United States case happened and it helped him reduce his sentence from 78 months to 57 months. 

If he was in prison for most of the last 20 years, it’s very difficult to believe that he spent that time learning day trading. 

His drug dealing past has helped him as well. Many of his disgruntled clients are scared of sharing their Delta Trading Group reviews because of it. 

Reportedly, many of his students have received threats for expressing their concerns online. 

When you have a drug dealer’s friends sending people threats, it becomes very challenging for them to post truthful reviews. This could be the reason why there aren’t any negative reviews on Delta Trading Group available online. 

Also, there is another reason behind the lack of negative reviews on Delta Trading Group. I have delved into it later but first, let’s discuss what Clifford’s trading sessions look like:

What are Dr Clifford Vance Cast’s Training Sessions Truly Like:

Dr Clifford Vance Cast asks people to spend thousands of dollars to see his trading sessions. They last for an hour or two. 

However, these sessions take place every day. Although you would hear Clifford talk a lot about his expertise and experience in these sessions, he doesn’t show his trades. 

I have watched his trading sessions for several days and he never even showed his trades once. The sessions were only a promotion of his expertise and how everyone is able to make money through Delta Trading Group. 

You would be surprised to see how much this guy can talk. He would talk about how great he is, how great his software is, and how easy it is to use. 

When I asked to see his trades, the staff didn’t comply. They suggested watching the trading rooms and sessions to see the trades, where he clearly wasn’t trading. 

Later, when I asked the staff again, they recommended that I stay patient and spend more time in the trading room. 

Obviously, the man is misleading customers about his expertise and trading sessions. They aren’t helpful at all and are only promoting his more expensive products and services. 

You would hope that things would stop here but the criminal past of Dr Clifford Vance Cast comes into play again. Below is the reason why you don’t see any critical reviews on this so-called trading guru:

Using Illegal Marketing Tactics to Hide Critical Reviews

When I was looking into Clifford, I knew I wouldn’t be the first person to notice the red flag. Turns out, I was right. 

There was another detailed review on him but it has received a fake DMCA notice. In a fake DMCA notice, the culprit copies your content, posts it on their website with an edited date and claims that they are the original owner of your content.

Fake DMCAs allow scammers to take down content from Google search results. It’s a common tactic among criminals and online scammers as it allows them to remove evidence of their wrongdoings from the internet. 

dr clifford vance cast

You can read the fake DMCA notice here.

Using a fake DMCA notice constitutes fraud, perjury, and impersonation. It’s an illegal tactic and can result in a prison sentence. 

Clifford Vance isn’t the only person who uses this tactic to take down critical reviews from the internet. 

Another scammer who used this tactic is FXrevenues, a forex scammer which has received warnings from financial regulators. Similarly, another culprit using this tactic is Vasily Zhabykin. He is using fake DMCA notices to hide his association with the Russian government. 

Conclusion

After going through the above points, it’s clear that Dr Clifford Vance Cast is a fraudster with a long past of criminal activities. He went to prison twice for drug trafficking, once on a RICO charge. 

Furthermore, he uses phony degrees and accolades to make himself seem more credible. All of this suggests that you should stay miles away from this scammer. 

Don’t sign up on Delta Trading Group.

    RICO Clifford Vance Cast of Delta Trading Group a.k.a. “Doc” at the S&P 500 Trading Group is a very sad little man who prays on older people that do not use the internet well enough to discover his abundance of lies and criminal activities. This little con artist is currently running for AZ Congress on a libertarian campaign. This little animal has ten times the criminal character of George Santos of Queens, NY. Cast Cast out of running for anything in government. No more criminals in politics, please.

    And, Cliffy uses rote levels of explaining complex markets. He calls somebody an idiot everyday whether that “idiot” is in his torture chamber of an online trading room, someone who smartly defected, or just someone notably worth slandering according to “Doc”.

    Cast is scammer and a crook.

    + PROS: Excellent fabricator of opinion. Superior artist of cons. Experienced meth dealer and prisoner.
    - CONS: Not currently imprisoned. Running for congress. Shapeshifting deviant.

    Cast is a shitbag in a littercan covered in maggots, and I trust everyone figures this out within moments of hearing his voice or seeing how insecure he really is with their own eyes. I miss hanging with him in Thailand.

    I worked for the company and I can confirm he is a fake, he targets the elderly, the majority of the time he doesn’t trade with real money, and he leads his employees and members by fear and intimidation. If anyone questions him he explodes! Vance aka Clifford is the very definition of a narcissist. His training program is a joke. It has an online portion that is completed in less than 2 weeks and he tries to get 15k for it.

    + PROS: None
    - CONS: Over priced, staff care about taking your money not helping you make money, fear based, refuses to post or show real results

  5. I guess he gets richer by only the sessions he takes…making 1000’s of $’s with fake knowledge and conning

  6. A person I know had invested in this company and got badly scammed… these people stopped answering his calls and emails and even banned the entry my uncle from his trading session when he went to confront them face to face

    • Hello Ontonio,

      It’s a good thing I read your comments and others as well. I had highly considered joining this Delta Trading Group, but now; I don’t think so.
      Do you know of any legit trading groups that train newbies such as myself where you don’t have to pay a fortune for?
      I would appreciate any advice you have to offer!
      Thank you!

  7. Such scammers need to be made accountable for misleading innocent people with expensive products and schemes

  8. This will surely happen again and again if we go on like dumb driven cattle and keep fooling ourselves without thorough research and well-informed decisions

  9. How come to this person is roaming freely, going on with his scam business after being jailed…words need to be spread that he is a total fraud

  14. Haha this guy has proper trading rooms with no proper records of his trading history…must be using next-level charming and manipulating tactics on his audiences

  15. Fake DMCAs should be a cyber-criminal offense and Google needs to pay heed to it

  16. He’s such a bragger of fake expertise…such a criminal…needs to be permanently jailed

  17. We really need more sites and articles like yours to share such crucial information with ordinary people who know little about how these scammers can woo them

    I regret spending thousands of dollars on Delta Trading Group.

    Don’t make the mistake I made.

    Avoid that nonsensical website at all costs. They don’t teach you anything new and the material is just outdated.

    Clifford Vance Cast is a good salesman but he lies a lot in his promotions.

    Delta Trading Group is nothing more than a scam. It has some of the worst tips to give you. They don’t even give refunds.

    The entire post was an emotional rollercoaster. At first I thought you would say Clifford is some kind of an inexperienced trader who uses hyperbole to sell his content. I could have never imagined him to be a meth dealer. Weird.
