It did do it. Anyway, for all I care, he can name them and risk losing the rest of his money if they sue him for defamation, won't take long if he has to cover a massive award of damages and the cost of their £500 an hour barristers.

Yeah, well I don't think I'm the one who has acquired a reputation for being nasty, rude and hostile. I'm no celebrity on this forum, but I'm certainly not known as an asshole.

You were incredibly rude to me after I offered you some advice, that shows the sort of person you are; you're the disgrace. You treat people in this way and assume they're going to back you ? Why should I want you to succeed after you were rude to me and then failed to apologise when, politely, prompted? Would you want me to succeed in my endeavors if I had told you to shut up and called you a prick?

You're sure anyone reading this will conclude the same, well pboyles is a fairly well known forum member and, I think, well liked, and I take it that he doesn't think I'm the aggressor in this. Likewise, I-hate-boiler-rooms said your comment 'went too far'.

Hi ladies and gentlemen,
not quite nice to fight and insult around here!
Don't we have to do anything else ?
I mean the target should be the thieves, or not!
Most of the people ( the hidden once) are not so friendly, I helped a lot ( without taking fees or however you want to call it). Sometimes is coming back a "thank You", mostly not even this. Doesn't matter, I#m sometimes realy wondering about.
But anyway, don't loose the time with fighting !

Re: Boiler Room Scams

Hi all

Just found out my mother-in-law's fired off over £5000 after a cold-call

She's made payments to Carbon Credit Specialists LLC in Florida of $7875 has an 'Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement from Carbon Trace Solutions to whom she's paid 2250 Euros for 250 Carbon Credits by the looks of it

She's convinced of the legitimacy due to them having addresses in USA, Dubai and Coventry, is there any chance this is not a total rip-off?

She has had contact with a Neil Harper on 0845 5280511 (Fax 0845 299 1111) and a company called Greener Earth on 0203 0148 505 (Fax)

Any help or advice would be massively appreciated - I'm always dismissive of anyone that calls, any likelihood she's not thrown her ££ away?

If you go to Regus.com you'll see you can buy an office address at 14 Wall Street or 111 Buckingham Palace Road for $150. Having an address means nothing. Unfortunately she has been scammed and the money is most likely lost.

It has been said that in some cases people have approached the bank concerned and alleged fraud. It might be worth a try I suppose but most likely you'll just get the runaround.

The main point is that because she has fallen for it once they will definitely try it again. Most people lose more from these follow up scams. There will be a variety of excuses mostly relating to recovering the initial losses. Of course it will just be the same criminals trying to steal more money from her.

Re: Boiler Room Scams

Many thanks

She's made two payouts now, which enforces your theory - one in June last year and another one in April 2012 even after I told her at christmas it sounded like a con
She's normally pretty switched on, has her own adviser etc, they must have caught her just right.

Thanks again for the info, she's been informed!

Obviously DCP has never ever had a chance to be accepted by any of the major US stock exchange. (No income, no financials etc.) Samuelson got his juicy commission based on the sold shares. You will be contacted by him again. If you have any extra cash you`d better of giving it to any charity organization.
Good investing
ya right, this Charles Gilmore is a conman par excellence and member of a Columbian Connection dealing with another stuff than gold.

Google 'hanging on the phone & Englishman in Dubai', you will find easy traceable names at Makati. Forget virtual offices, they are waste of time.

Happy hunting
