Rutherford-Franklin-Standard-F-Wentworth

Hi there,

there are indications that the follow-up-scheme to StandardF, Wentwortworth etc.
will be Rutherford Franklin.

Their Homepage is here:
https://www.rutherfordfranklin.com/index.html

Completely other issue:

Regarding wealthrecovery: There is a rather young female, TV based lawyer behind it. This can be easily shown as her homepage and the wealthrecovery share the same servers and there are no other pages on these. Regardless of any potential ethical issues and there are quite of few, what I would ask myself, is if I have just been scammed by persons using only fake identities, fake offices, call-centers, VoIP-technology etc. to make it as hard as possible to be traced, then how trustworthy can I find an entity using exactly the same technologies and strategies?

According to one newspaper article from last summer they are also named as defendants in a huge lawsuit brought by binary options companies against them, but the accuracy of this information has never been checked.

Hi all,

this is my first post (registered today to post a warning about this lot of crooks) and it's another scam that I unfortunately fell victim to a couple of weeks ago.

This outfit use the website http://chesterfieldintlpartners.com/practice.html

They cold called me and they had knowledge of shares I hold in a specific company. The story was that they were mounting a hostile takeover of this company and were buying out the small shareholders like myself.

They obviously read the register of shareholders which, I have learned, is available as a public document in Ireland where I live.

The story followed the usual style - about which I'm now enlightened..... "Do not discuss this conversation with anyone" The process must be carried out with great speed & urgency" and so on.

These are the contact details they emailed me:

Administration Department
Chesterfield International Partners
Tel: 1 914 294 3839
Fax: 1 914 462 3739
Email: info@chesterfieldintlpartners.com

Hopefully others will read this and exercise extreme caution if contacted by phone or email.

Good job! This is a scam that requires you to pay to "un restrict" your shares. I assume they are REG S 122 restricted shares?
If not, they will probably want you to invest in other equally worthless shares so you will be sending them more money in any case.


Further proof it's a scam.
Google is a powerful tool.

Further to my recent falling victim to "Chesterfield Partners", I have had some very welcome good fortune.

When I fell victim to the initial scam and sent money via bank transfer, after a few days, I was phoned by the scammers to say they had not received the money. They were very plausible and asked me to scan and email them a copy of the money transfer document.

When they received it, they phoned me to say they had made a mistake with the number of the bank account I was originally instructed to wire the money to. They emailed a new account number to me and asked me to re-send the money and that the original amount would eventually be returned to my bank account as the 'incorrect' account number they originally provided, was an error on their part and no account in fact existed.

I was then 100% aware it was a scam and refused to repeat the wire transfer and they became irate and reminded me that I had signed a legally binding agreement.

I had resigned myself to the loss of my £5,100 and decided to put it behind me, when three weeks ago, I checked my account online, and discovered that my £5,100 has been credited to my bank account, minus about £100 which I assume was for the bank fees, currency fluctuations etc.

I consider myself to be extremely lucky and I'm now a far more savvy person after my experience. Valuable lesson learned.

John_North,
More than likely the bank was informed that this is a scam by another "investor" and returned your money. The scam company wanted you to re send the funds to another bank before you realized it was a scam too.

Glad it worked out for you.
Just hang up n future calls because these guys are like a turd that won't flush and will not give up trying to scam you as long as you are on the phone.

This is the first time im posting here.

I was initially called by an American guy named Charles (forgot the last name) from Sanderson Consultants from Korea. He ask me if I'm interested in investing on Apple's stock. I said I'm not interested. Then he said what about Netflix, and I replied I'll think about it.

Next day, another guy named Jordan Foster explained to me why investing Netflix is a good idea. To be honest, the way he explains is very convincing. We've been contacting for a week already, and I did tried to search on Sanderson Consultants, but zero bad news about it (actually, zero news about it.). I trusted the guy and I said I'm in for US$5000 worth of share.

Then another guy from legal department named Steven Hughes ask me for verbal authorization about buying the share, and sent me an email with account application, trade authorization, and W-8BEN fies attached. I've signed all of them He sent me another email with Banking Detail attached, and said he'll guide me through transaction so there won't be any mistake.

Account Name: EUREKA CONSULTING LTD

Bank Name: Banco Espirito Santo S.A.
Sucursal financeira exterior
Av. Arriaga 42, 1B
Funchal,
Portugal

Account Number: PT50 0007 0903 0009 5302 0010 6

Swift Code (BIC): BESCPTPLOSF

Payment details: For Account Reference

Then I looked up EUREKA CONSULTING LTD and found out it is not a trust worthy company, and found this forum and this post. Luckily, I haven't sent any money to this bank account yet, due to account protection from my bank.
I've read some posts and believe that I am more likely to be in one of those scams. I have not confront them yet, and I need you guys to help me.

I did signed those legal documents already (with my passport number). I saw earlier post that they will use that to threat me, but they have no rights to accuse me and there is nothing to worry about. He is telling me has to do the transaction today, or there will be penalty. Please teach me what should I do next, and what should I do in the future, if they use those documents to threat me.

Thank you all for posting those information. They are all helpful, and most important is avoiding me from sending money away for nothing.
