These conners will in all likelyhood be trading through many different names from the same office.

I can just imagine a salesman calling a client as firm A in Paris and the next call from firm B in Zurich.

Remember the industry is a multi million dollar one, maybe even a few billion so people are going to do whatever they have to do make the cash.

Remember it's a 3 step process, they lie - they cheat -and they steal.....

You can add Citicap Equity Consultants to your list

check out the website, its pretty tacky, and full of spelling mistakes and error messages. Also I have been emailed by FSA to confirm this company is currently under investigation

If you cant find their phone number and address, then do yourself a favour and stop being so stupid.

If you cant work out that any institution which is less than clear about how they can be contacted is going to be somewhat "dodgy", then you deserve to lose all your money.

DON'T DO IT!

I think there should be a competition to see which boiler room scam can lose the most money in 6 months!

Or, have a sort of Boiler-Room Scam Index, where we aggregate the various stocks being pushed, to illustrate how useless they are.

The reason behind this is that some people may not believe how bad these scammers are. If we post the relevant company with a date, over a period of a couple of months, it should become clear what could happen to your money.

For myself, I was offered Galaxy Minerals, (GAXY.OB) in mid-February. (Jefferson Holt)
Also, offered Apollo Resources (AOOR.OB) from Langley Advisory in late March.

Both have lost value - unsurprisingly. (interestingly, I was offered them near their tops !)

I think it good policy to record who offers what and when on this thread.

Any other takers ?

guido, anyone touting New millennium medical is a scammer. The company doesn't even exist, but has a flash website to lure in victims. Check out the Edward tate thread for more info. Steer well clear!

Sometimes I wonder why people fall for such schemes - I would not send money to someone I dont know, to an account overseas, to a firm that is not registered or regulated by the relevant authorities. These operations are so cruel to say the least as they very happily can target old pensioners and such folk...makes one wonder about human nature and greed sometimes...There is more to life than money and riches!

Was anyone ever contacted by a company called "Jardine Windsor Asset Management" based in New York?

Or was anyone ever approached by any company to buy or sell shares of a company called "Checkpoint Genetics - CKPT"?

The procedure is always the same - actually these shares are worthless and someone approaches you with an extraordinary deal, that you might sell these shares to someone who wants to realize a tax write off.
But first you have to register these shares - which costs an amount somewhere between 5.000 and 10.000 U$ depending on how many shars have to be registered;

Can anyone report experiences regarding this company or these CKPT shares?

regards from Austria!

I was "hunted" also by Windsor Advisory Services, closed the account with about $700 + in it and was advised (sic) that the money would take 30 days to reach my account. Be warned firm operating out of Barcelona and not regulated, any bright ideas how who I should contact. The story they gave was their clearing bank had to authorise and couldn't at the moment.....lame or what!!

Agree wholeheartedly, but have to say they spent over a year and a half trying!!
