You could get legal advice, go to the police or just put it down as an expensive lesson learnt the hard way.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
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.

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

There is another way to get rid of them ;You could get legal advice, go to the police or just put it down as an expensive lesson learnt the hard way.
The "lady" is a Filipina.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:
BENEFICIARY ACCOUNT NAME:
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.
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.
