The FSA togehter with several other forces put behind bar several boiler room operators last year.. One thing can be said for the UK police, once they take on a case, someone will get time, its just a pity that initiallly they are slow on the uptake.. I wonder what the police would do if someone was robbing UK banks of billions per year??? there would be hell to pay if they were as slow to respond as they do to boilwer room crime. Police forces of the world.. unite against boiler rooms! what is needed is a rapid reaction team to take them out as soon as they appear, this crime is costing genuine industry and commerce billions, not millions, BILLIONS of pounds each year.

Come on police.. get your act together.. and politicians WAKE UP to this crime and its cost!!
Hi shaw capital is in vietnam and i believe associated with berkeley capital finance platinum house financial invest-direct-group...the police will not be doing anything on this and or any other boiler room if no bigwigs are involved.It makes one ashamed to be british as to their policies and conduct in finding these scum,,The mentioned fraud sites ie berkeley was operated from uk .Webfusion the hub and not one warrant or inquiry was done on this.Webfusion even though they were informed that berkeley were a boiler room did absolutely nothing..supplied no info at all ''privacy law'' was their get out.

Re: Boiler Room Scams

Hello, A relative of mine has just been scammed of 100,000 (cold called -Gold and carbon) mostly by Frank Marshall from Charles Pearson Investments,It now seems like they have sold his details as he getting calls from all over the world. I have read some of this thread about CPI. Would someone give me some advice on what I can do? The chap is 75 and it was every penny he had, I think this will finish him off. I have catalogued all documents,reported the crime to the local Police and Action Fraud, spoken to City of London Police and searched the net. I have changed his phone number, the last calls they were trying to take his home.Thanks in anticipation

Re: Boiler Room Scams

Just to enlighten all you folks The FSA in uk has'nt a clue what's going on.They dont really work at finding boiler rooms unless full evidence is put before them. They have no one surfing for boiler rooms or scams nor do the police.The uk is the easiest place to set up scams no matter what the press says.I have been scammed by the scum out there and have spent 8 months trying to contact ANYONE who can do anything without success,I cannot even talk to police as they have told me it is out of their jusidiction.So i am going to physically hunt down the *******s who stole my life and would appreciate any help from you guys...regards Jblonde

I'm very sorry about your friend and sadly there's little he can do because the number one question is 'where are they'? They're not from the place they say they're calling from so finding them is them without a lot of money is all but impossible. These scammers are also quick to move money around making it even harder to trace.

By the way, I got a private mail a few months back saying I was too hard on the boiler room scammers and should tone down my language.

But look, see what they do, see the kind of people they are? not only do they take ALL of the money a 75 year old man has, they try to get him to remortgage his property so they take him for EVERYTHING and care little that he'd probably be thrown out on the streets.

Folks, as I've LONG SAID these scammers are REAL SCUM AND THEY RUIN LIVES often the lives of the older generation who have NO chance of getting their money back.

personally they make me SICK. And if you're one of the boiler room scum reading this - SHAME ON YOU, YOU LOW LIFE PIECE OF CRAP. So do the right thing, stop ruining lives, leave your job NOW, go back to the good side and if you really want to help consider shopping the people you work with (I bet many of them would shop you in an instant). Do this and you'll stop RUINING LIVES.

OK, do you have the details of the banks that you paid in to? if so you need to write a "Mavera letter" with a copy of the poilce report ASAP. You also need to contact your bank.. fraud department and ask them to send a SWIFT recall message to the receiving banks. You may need help with this, so eith go to an solicitor who has expereience in this or do a google search on Global Investor Alerts.

You need to act quickly to freeze the accounts before the money is moved on.. what country did the boiler room say they were operating in??
