Well Done 'rub1', excellent idea. That should help anyone doing some research before being scammed. I've been cold called for 4 of the companies on your list. 'New Millenium Medical' being pushed by Kensington Price Consulting
Escreen being sold by EMC - Equity Management Consulting International,
and Golden Dynasty and Claim Tracker both being pushed by Russell Research Partners.
These dirty low life’s have all been after my money, luckily for me I did a Google search and found T2W first and saved me a packet. I'm hoping they don't get too clever for me and catch me out one day, I'm certainly a lot more wary and untrusting than before they first contacted me and it's taught me to question and check everything I'm told. It's a horrible feeling to find you've been scammed big time, lucky I'm not one of them! :D
Thanks again for keeping innocent punters like me out of the dooee, keep up the good work!

Firestorm, Argus and all the companies they are involved in are scams, invest and you WILL have your money stolen from you.

If you want to invest then Paypal me 50% of your investment value, it will be a far better deal for you because you'll only lose 50% of your money instead of 100%.

PS. Who cares whether a website looks good or not, some of the most profitable web businesses around have not changed their site in many years. Some of the biggest losers on the web have the best websites, there is NO correlation.
Hi Anley
I do understand what you mean regarding web sites. I am not going to invest any money with them, I was just wanting info as they have approached me and I wondered if they had approached anyone else.Have you had any dealings with them and how do you know the companies they are involved with are scams? I am just trying to learn. Thanks for your reply

Hi Firestorm,
To make this thread clearer I have copied Konstantin100's post from another discussion board:

Argus and its representatives are evidently fraudsters. Persons associated with its Nutrition Holding Corp.& Glucoswiss Inc. & Advanced Woundcare Technologies Inc. - investment scheme are: Mr. Paul Adams, Mr. Richard Keith, Mr. Jonathan Stone, Mr. Paul Adams, Mr. Alexander Richardson, Mr. Owen Bethel as President of Argus, Mr. Anthony F. Musso jun. as bondholder and vendor of shares of the aforesaid firms. Mr. Michael Scheft, financial analyst, has been instrumentary in abetting this breach of law by conveying the impression that NHC would really exist.

The sole motive for founding Argus seems to have primarily been money-laundering and misusing the invested capital for other purposes. Repayment has never been envisaged at all. The prospective investor is being advised to transfer the investment-amount onto an Argus-owned account with the Credit Lyonnais, New York USA. Having attained a certain amount, the sum is being transferred to another bank, e.g. the Sentinel Bank / Bahamas, where the account will be closed.

None of the firms above are registered within the United States and have therefore no right to issue any shares at all. All of those three unregistered firms are represented by Mr. Anthony F. Musso jun. (aged 57), who issues the said shares himself. He assesses the value of shares by the investment amount; so there are even shares totalling 1/1000 US$ paper securities.

Mr. Musso has sold shares on this pattern within the U.S. As this was contrary to existing U.S.-Law he was charged with fraud and breach of the stock corporation law and consequently sentenced by U.S. District Court of Southern Florida on 6th February 2004. (

Fire, use these 3 rules and you won't have money stolen from you

1) If you're ever cold called offering any investment idea then 99% chance it's a scam
2) If you ever deal with a broker than does not have an office in your own country AND is not regulated by your country's financial regulator (FSA in the UK, SEC in the US) then there is a 99% chance that you're being set up.
3) If you send money offshore when dealing with a brokerage company then there's a 99% chance it will be stolen from you (this is an interesting one because many of the scammers now try and pretend that they are in your country and are regulated, perhaps they use the name of a real firm with just a slight twist, for example ABC Brokers Ltd is a kosher company but they might say they're calling from ABC Brokers Inc. Also NEVER call them back on the telephone number they gave you, always get the main switchboard number from your country's regulator and call them back on that, do not look get it off their website and the website could be a fake.

These fraudsters are very clever in what they do, it is a multi-million $ business. They employ some of the best salesman around so beware....

Hi Firestorm,

Here's some comments on Pharma Holdings Inc from the Motley Fool Discussion Board.


Regarding the Sheft report on the Pharma website states

The CEO and Managing Partner, Edward Klapp IV, has served as the President of Millennium Partners Incorporated (MPI), a multi-faceted direct marketing and media agency since 1992.

Someone by the name of Edward Klapp IV appears to have criminal convictions for running "money making" schemes, the news item below is from 1997 and was originally published in the Kentucky Post. I am assuming that there aren't too many people named Edward Klapp IV.

Lexington -- Two out-of-state residents were sentenced to federal prison Friday for running money-making schemes in Kentucky. Edward Klapp IV, 38, of Tequesta, Fla., and Ramona Hecht, 44, of Lakewood, Colo., were each sentenced to one year and a day. U.S. District Judge Karl Forester in Lexington also ordered Klapp to pay a $3,000 fine and make $40,000 restitution. Ms. Hecht was ordered to make partial restitution to victims, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Wisdom Jr. said. Klapp pleaded ...

With all these Americans called Simon Smith III or John White II, I wonder if in 100-200 years they'll be Simon Smith IX or John White XII etc

That would be so funny.......

"J P Stuart Associates " no longer appears on the FSA list. Does that mean that they are now authorised ?!!

This company has cold-called me (don't worry, I have no intention of sending them any money !), but it seems strange that they have (recently ?) disappeared from the FSA's bad-boy list ! Without me mentioning it, they volunteered that their website had been cloned by Carlton Webber, who are on the list - the implication being that JP Stuart are the good guys, who have been targetted themselves by criminals.

Based in Spain (if indeed that's where they're actually based) means 99.99% chance it's a scam whether on and then off the FSA list. If the company is legit and located in Spain then it should be registered withthe spanish version of the FSA.

I'd actually put a small amount of money on the fact that the owners are connected somehow to Carlton Webber.
