No they're worthless. This is called an advance fee fraud, they tell you the shares are valuable and you just have to pay a tax or fee then they will send you all the money. When they get your money they will disappear.

Smith, you better heed the warnings here otherwise you're going to get scammed again.

THE SHARES ARE 100% WORTHLESS. They have ALWAYS been worthless and because you know nothing about investing or companies it was easy to scam you in the first place. You got all your research and news from the fake broker that called you, that proves you know nothing about investments otherwise you would have realised within about 30 seconds you were being setup.

Please don't take offence to what I say I'm trying to get you to realise your mistakes and limitations otherwise you're going to fall for these types of 'easy money' scams again and again. Look at proof - you didn't realise you were being setup again for an advance fee fraud.

Good luck, use common sense, ask questions here and you'll be OK. We might be hard on you but you get to keep hold of your cash. The scammers are lovely and charming yet they steal it. Which one is better...............

This company that is trying to contact you is a scam company, this has nothing to do with BioDefense Corporation at all. I would post the information on this board with names of the people that are contacting you so we can shut these scammers down.

Re: BioDefense Corporation

Thank you to everyone on this string. Just wanted to add my twopence worth.....Some Boiler Room Scammers contacted me 3 years ago trying to sell me some shares in this company using Lord Guthrie as a reference point, I researched the company, came to the conclusion that it was some sort of scam and avoided it plague-like. However, in the last two weeks I have been contacted twice by a company purporting to be involved in trading securities from Texas and offering to buy my 5000 shares in this BioDefense Corp. When I tell them that I do not currently and never have owned any shares in this outfit, they ask if I'm sure because I appear on the register of shareholders....Of course I'm sure that I have none of these shares....Phoning from Texas at 1130 GMT to trade shares that I never owned....there can be no other explanation.

Very interesting, it is a good way to get correct information for them. What a creation for THOSE guys! Let us wait and see what is going to happen, hopefully it is a good movie for all.

Re: BioDefense Corporation

I believe anley to be correct.
I too have been contacted by Franklin Rankin wanting me to sell my (worthless) BioDefense shares.
They have then put me in touch with a company called Truman Stock Transfer Co. also in Texas as an Escrow third party. All seemed to be OK as they hadn't asked for any money up front. Then .... phone call from Jonanthan Baker at Franklin Rankin telling me my shares are restricted (which may well be the case), and I would have to contact (preferably Truman) another company to get then de-restricted. I have just received an email from Truman (who I contacted), telling me that an up front payment to a US lawyer is necessary before the restrictions are lifted. This is 700 to 1100 USD.
Having been scammed for quite a lot already, I don't think this is where I'm going to go !!
If anyone would like to tell me how to, or join a group trying to stop these scammers, I would be very interested. I have all the documents and emails associated with this latest try at getting some more of my funds.
