Boiler Room Scams

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.

I haven't pay them yet. but they are waiting for my payment. I'm just afraid that they will use those "legal documents" against me. I just don't know what to do next.

Just wait. It may blow over.
If they contact you mention you have put the matter in the hands of the police. It may scare them off if your police force is respected. Don't send any money. They are unlikely to take you to Court.

Identifying a scam company

You could get legal advice, go to the police or just put it down as an expensive lesson learn the hard way.
You are right to not send any money. It is a scam, Boiler Room.
The fact that they have a Seoul, Korea address is because it is highly unlikely any of the people they try to scam will ever visit Korea. A Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore office address will probably get some visitors as they are popular business destinations. Then people will find out that it is a virtual office.

Google is great but they employ people who can bury the negative results down a few pages so you will not see them on a search unless you look further. You will see their website, press releases etc on the initial search.

1) Level 41 Gangnam Finance Center 152 Teheran-Ro, Seoul, 66236, Korea.

You will find no one there but an answering service and message forwarder.

3) Banco Espirito Santo S.A.

https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/business/financial-scandal_swiss-froze-millions-linked-to-banco-espirito-santo/43078432

It's a good thing that you published the banking info. Others who have sent money there can contact the bank, if they do it quickly, and report a Boiler Room Investment scam and possibly get there money back. It has happened before.

Should they call and threaten you with legal action, just ask the person if he works for David Gallinsky (Manila) or Paul Hilton (Bangkok, Manila, Kuala Lumpor) or is it another Boiler Room operator and see what he says.
Those two culprits are still active and use these tactics.

This site Andrew-Drummond.com used to report on Boiler Rooms in Thailand but was threatened and had to leave Thailand for fear of being murdered.

I'm glad to help should you need any of these matters investigated.

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.

UK financial regulator Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has issued its latest warning against an unregulated financial services provider targeting UK consumers.

The FCA’s latest warning is against the firm Chesterfield International Partners.

Chesterfield International Partners is not authorised by the FCA but has been targeting people in the UK and is also carrying on regulated activities which require authorisation:

Chesterfield International Partners

Address: 146 E 39th Street, New York, NY 10016, United States
Tel: + 1 914 294 3839, + 1 914 462 3739

Here are the details of the bank I was asked to send my money to:

BRANCH ADDRESS: 51 H. Francisco Street Corner Roosevelt Avenue Brgy. Paraiso Quezon City, Philippines
HEAD OFFICE: China Banking Corporation Bldg.
8745 Paseo De Roxas Corner Villar. Street
Makati, Metro Manila
BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER:
133252000496
BENEFICIARY ACCOUNT NAME:
JTA Builders
202 Windsor Mansion Cityland Evangelista Avenue Santolan
Pasig City, Metro Manila Philippines
SWIFT CODE: CHBKPHMM

P.S. The 'lady' speaking on this YouTube video is, I believe, the same person who engaged with me. She called herself Karen Johanssen and her line of talk was almost exactly as it is on the clip.

There is another way to get rid of them ;
Demand they supply you with a copy of their Company Registration Certificate and the local SEC authorisation to conduct Financial Business.
Most likely they will not come back to you but do not be surprised if some other Boiler Room does.

The "lady" is a Filipina.
They use these Filipinos to "front" you then have a Brit or another westerner call you to "close" you.
Just pure lazy coz the Filipinos make hundreds of calls to get a couple of interested or gullible parties for the "brokers". Then they get a token % of the sale.

I met some Filipino guys in Ortigas that were selling investments in Marijuana stocks. They were high as a kite while on the phone. I was amused.

David Gilinsky is the old fat guy sitting in the chair talking to the NBI. Probably working out a price to pay to go free. He's done it many times.

Reminder.
This is the time of year that the Boiler Room guys will be trying to get you to pay.
They won't get paid until they come back after New Years but that will give them something in their pockets after spending all their money on drugs and hookers over the holidays.

Then i Jan, they will be hitting the phones hard to get your end of year bonus money.

Just hang up on the leaches!

hi,
have played a little bit around on this cold sunday regarding chesterfield, sanderson and eureka.
not much turned up. the homepage of chesterfield has apparently vanished (even on the waybackmachine). the robtex-data for sanderson only referes to sonderson. for eureka ltd. there is something. according to the following link the Dutch FSA has already issued a warning against them
(https://verbraucherschutzforum.berlin/2016-10-18/afm-warnt-vor-eureka-consulting-ltd-178256). At the end this consumer protection agency crossreferences their entry in the UK companies house registry which gives you two names of directors which sound somehow Indian. I am not sure if this really the right "eureka consulting ltd." Ltds can also exist in other countries than the UK.
If you surf a little bit around you quickly find "eureka consulting ltds" in places like nigera, cyprus and mauritius. just from the information currently being found on the web the ones in nigera and cyprus are probably legitimate, but at least the homepage from the one on mauritius looks indeed a little bit unusual.

Hi,
what I have learned sofar is just that using robtex one can easily figure out that there are more pages related to this like http://www.scifgroup.com/
@ everbody else: this is just something like a maneuver, please disregard the content. Should you receive email similar to the one posted above just disregard them.

once on a sucker list always on a sucker list, it never stops....a new boiler room to report, looks very much like setup by the same crooks we know operating out of Manila, pretending to be in Tokyo:

http://www.wellington-capital-group.com/

Just got the brochure sent to my workplace, in a few days time the first "investment broker" going to call, giving me the BS about the super profitable investment that only they know about. Stay away from those gangsters, they don't invest a cent of your money, just make it disappear.
