Re: Boiler Room Scams

Private Trading Acquisitions - this appears to be the only place where I can find any information on this somewhat suspicious seeming organisation! Have read other posts and need to know if anyone else holds worthless WWA restricted stock for which large amounts have been offered..... the sales patter is good - very good.... is there any legitimacy to their claims that once they have secured 51% of shares for their clients, the deal will go through and the $0.38 per share upfront payment to de-restrict the shares will be repaid within 30 days..... is this yet another case of all too good to be true??
Any input would be appreciated!

There is absolutely no chance of you getting a penny from these crooks. This is just the advance fee part of the scam, they are trying it on because you fell for it previously. Once they get your 38c per share they will disappear and you'll never hear from them again. Its absolutely typical of how they operate, they always try this on after a while as people realise they have been scammed and are looking for a way out.

Like I said, you can read these scum like a book.

Tell him that, tell him what's going to happen BEFORE it happens, hopefully that will make him fully understand he's been scammed, and talking to a bunch of professional thieves and conmen.

Hi Anley. Just heard from my friend that he has received an e-mail from Fisher Capital stating that 'Amazon Gold Ventures has been bought out by 'Black Hawk'. And that he should wait for their call. The letter , pdf e-mail, was signed by George Spencer. Another day, another scam, another company name. Here's my question. If my friend is asked to send more money to an account, surely we have advance info to catch this guy ?????????

When people on this forum do not reply to pm after asking for them it arouses suspicion and negates the whole wellbeing and aspects of the forum.

Hi all, I have just been informed of the same deal, Amazon to Blackhawk. Unfortunatly I am alreday into these guys for $10,000 but was warned in time before I sent more. Questions: This is definitely a scam? because I verbably agreed to the deal (on the phone), do they have any legitimite claims to compensation> And finally, any chance of getting my 10,000 back (I think I alreday know the answer to that one)

In January I posted a follow-up to a posting by BJ about Premier Partners, where he had mentioned a blog 'outing' a boiler room (boilerroombuster.blogspot.com). Well he has just posted about Private Trading Acquisitions as the new name for the same 'company', so very likely a scam like pboyles said

Re: Boiler Room Scams

I have been contacted by phone from America by Upper East Side Trust Management. I have a large number of shares in a company which they are willing to pay $0.15 for. for a takeover However, The shares are restricted and they have a company lined up that will remove the restriction for $0.02 per share. which totals $14,000. Has anyone heard of them?

All the bells and whistles are saying it is a scam, but what if it isn't - and that is what they are playing on.

I'm sure you already know in your heart what the answer is, Nigel.

Upper East Side Trust management have a website - Upper East Side Trust Management

According to their contact details, their USA Headquarters is 211 E 70th Street. 211 E 70th St is actually a tower block of luxury residential apartments. The website was registered in November 2011 using that same address (with no apartment or suite number) to a "Timmothy Jones" who also gives a Washington phone number and an email address using a domain (rbmconsulting.net) registered in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Global Investor Alerts have already flagged them with a cold calling alert.

Does anyone have any info on Fisher Capital management and specifically, so called shares with Norton Scientific, amazon gold and Blackhawk?
Also, since i beleive I have been scammed, I have noticed several mentions of companies that help in these situations, anyone have any experience with any od these companies. Don't want to get scammed again!
If these guys are scammers, I would like to do whatI can to stop them.

This is most DEFINITELY a scam, dont worry about any verbal commitments you made, they are not valid!.. by the way.. can you pass me details of the bank account they asked you to pay in to.. if so I can freeze it!!!
There is absoultey no doubt that Fisher capital management are a set of fraudsters!! Amazon gold ventures is a company that was set up by them simply to defraud victims.. please send me the details of the bank account they requested you pay in to and I can FREEZE it you may have a chance to get you 10K back.. but will take a while.

Thanks, I would love to send you the bank info and anything else that will help.
I'm new on this so not sure where to send this info?
Also, for anyone else who is interested, this wasn't just one cold call (although it started that way)where I blindly sent money. It was months of calls, even sent me a fancy brochure, so beware.
