To me it appears as a scam. They offering a 5 times return on investment (current share price is $ 1 and they promise that a hedge fund has offered $5 per share)

I have tried to email Trieye Design but all the email are returned. In the past I made a small investment with Infinity and they made a 20% return for me.

Until I came across this site, I never heard of a boiler room. From what I have read, I think Infinity is one.
I would like more experienced member to advise me and to also warn others whom Infinity may have contacted.
btw, they called me, I never made any initial contact with them
I hope this is posted in the right forum, if not mods, please move it.
I got caught out with an IPO offering some 18 months ago, it was IncaPacificGold and Mining, you would get a glossy brochure and a believable website, but trust me its all a smoke screen for 'Its your money we want!' Dont get involved, as others have told you.

This outfit say they are from Tortola, the Virgin Islands, now I ask you the centre of finance is London is it not? This site hopes to operate til 2013, but give them only to the year end. Their physical location (New York) appears to be linked to several other alleged scam websites, so they are in with other bad guys. Stay away from www.infinityintlgroup.com.

Also stay away fron www.bishopsgatecapital.com, as they are linked to at least 8 other scam websites on the Isle of Man. They have only been going 7 weeks so let us all nip them in the bud......

Thanks guys. Will be staying away from them.

At this stage, I would really like to put the word out to others to stay way from Infinity.

Hi, I got offered exactly the same deal, except that the deal will only go off in December 2011. When did they tell you that the Hedge Fund would buy the shares.

Can anybody else confirm previous dealings with Infinity International Group.

Re: Boiler rooms and scammers.

Botties, you're being setup to have an advance fee fraud worked on you.

Big payday, hedge fund coming in to buy up all the shares etc. That's the carrot to make you think a big pay day is coming your way. However, first you'll be asked to pay a sum of money for fees or for legal work (or some such bull). Pay that money and IT WILL BE STOLEN from you.

Everything you're being told is a lie. The shares you first bought are worthless, and they will always be worthless. Sadly you were setup the first time you bought the shares which is why the scammers are coming back for more.

Please understand what's happening and make sure you NEVER accept an easy money offer again from a cold calling stranger........

Hi Anley, Thanks, I have come to realize that I have lost that money after I read the post regarding the brokers and the proposed IPO company. Sadly though, as the profit at first was understandable and expectable but like they say, A fool is born every minute. I just wish I could at least get the input money back, but that is wishing for a miracle.

To you and everyone.

I am nearly 80. I wish I could convince all the youngsters that they do not have to convince me of how convincing these people are.

I'm afraid that I can't, all of them. But I can advise those who read this. Do what you tell your kids to do. Don't talk to strangers.

In addition to calling me, some have the nerve to put musak on the line and expect me to wait!.

They have the cheek of the devil. If you don't know them, hang up, don't even say hallo.

Botties, we all make mistakes, the key is to learn from them. As I said beware of EVERYONE that calls you up from now on, 99.9% of them will be scammers, however charming and knowledgable they may seem.

Summary: It's OK to get scammed once, but it's a crime to be scammed twice.
