hi tom,
thanks for flagging wellington. I had simply overlooked the very first sentence in the posting before yours.
these pages are becoming repetitive. we have seen the pictures used on the wellington side before and somehow also the NY address given above already looks familiar. what I do not really get is that there people who really believe this. Buying bogus shares is one thing but believing that the US would ever set up a "stockholders amnestey program" (!!!) requires a different level of... not sure about the right word. ...
anyway
have a nice day hb1

It is high time the authorities in all countries co-operated to make scamming thieves really pay for their activities imho.

Wealth Recovery International

Binary Options appears to be the latest organised financial crime.
According to Wealth Recovery International, https://wealthrecoveryint.com/
“We have tracked down the whereabouts of various Binary Options companies and have been able to verify that 99% of Binary Options companies are primarily based in Israel or operated by Israeli nationals. “
Source : https://wealthrecoveryint.com/binary-options-scam/
They give an address at 200 Vesey Street, New York, NY 10281
However they are not to be found in the New York State Department of State as being a registered company !
Has anybody ever had any dealing with this company ?
I am curious to know as they are a number of victims who would like to engage their services and recover their losses.
Please contact me at blackwatch09@gmail.com
Thank you.

Presently I have this company (Wealth Recovery International) telling me they can recover my money from Suisse Option (Biggest Fraud!!!).
I have found this interesting article which actually shows this company is not a fraud.
Nathalie on the phone said they just recovered money from Binary Books...which this article shows is true but with the help of Haggai Camron.

I am wondering ALSO has anyone had any dealings with this company (Wealth Recovery International) if so, what happened?.

Hi,
presumed you are a real victim, . . . what I would ask myself if I might not be a little bit tired of all these heavy sales and marketing tactis, fake-identities, third party accounts etc etc. etc.

Here is a list of Israel based lawyers somebody else prepared last year. It might include the real persons behind wealthrecovery or not and it might also include one false hit but most of them were checked with the Israeli bar association in 2017 and some are really good. I also do not know if the company you dealt with was really based in Israel but sofar it does not sound too unlikely.

Binary Options Scam

To the Suisse Option you can add : Geneva Option, Central Option, Grand Option, Quick Option and many more.
They all connect to BNB Markets Ltd., one of the 45 or so Companies registered mainly in the UK but all by now struck off the record.
The two Australian based Directors can also be considered as victims as their particulars had been stolen by the scammers.
The leading Company had been registered in Cyprus, Germany and the UK.
It has by now been dissolved in all three jurisdictions.
The new leading Company has been registered in Belize in May16.
The main Director is an Israeli with an address in Israel and with an extensive knowledge of Banking and Finance.

As for WRI – I would not go down that path (my instinct)

somebody accidentially ran into this homepage

https://www.alphacapital.limited/contact-us/

which raises some minor concerns.
it can be that this is okay or it can be that this is a clone, don't know.

yep, that seems to be the connection. There are several questionable companies registered at 196 High Rd., Ld. including Standard Fidelity Ltd. and some more. In respect to the homepage of alphacapital an issue simply is if this is a clone of a UK regulated not just incorporated entity of the same name or simply
something like a beta version of a new homepage by the more or less legitimate company, whose homepage was already clones several years back (There is an FSA-UK warning about this).

Hi,

as a owner of (always) worthless shares in the now long defunct Paragon GPS company I a regularly approached by companies/individuals that wants to help me. The latest call I got was from Edward Temple from Sky Marketing. He said he could help me getting some money back from my ownership in the Paragon GPS stock. He got me in touch with a company called Enterprise Acquisitions and a person called Joseph Grotto.

Mr. Grotto could tell me he had a client that would offer me actually more money for the shares than what I bought them for. There was only one catch. I would have to buy an insurance bond. His client would cover the most of the cost, but I would have to put up approx. 2200 USD. There was talk about an escrow account, and standard procedures. I would get the money back in 5-7 days after the client had gotten the shares transferred to him. It was supposedly to protect both parties.

Link to website: http://www.sky-marketing.com/ and http://www.eacquisitions.com

As always I am very suspicious, and a did a lookup.

The website does not look right, and I am now even more suspicious. I am right in believing this is just another scamsite?

Scam

Yes, this sounds very similar to a scam that I almost fell victim to last year.

You can see my post about it here:

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=3061258


It sounds like a variation of the scam I was almost caught up in last year.

I have been extremely fortunate

This outfit use the website http://chesterfieldintlpartners.com/practice.html

They cold called me and they had knowledge of shares I hold in a specific company. The story was that they were mounting a hostile takeover of this company and were buying out the small shareholders like myself.

They obviously read the register of shareholders which, I have learned, is available as a public document in Ireland where I live.

The story followed the usual style - about which I'm now enlightened..... "Do not discuss this conversation with anyone" The process must be carried out with great speed & urgency" and so on.

These are the contact details they emailed me:

Administration Department
Chesterfield International Partners
Tel: 1 914 294 3839
Fax: 1 914 462 3739
Email: info@chesterfieldintlpartners.com

Hopefully others will read this and exercise extreme caution if contacted by phone or email.

Further to my recent falling victim to "Chesterfield Partners", I have had some very welcome good fortune.

When I fell victim to the initial scam and sent money via bank transfer, after a few days, I was phoned by the scammers to say they had not received the money. They were very plausible and asked me to scan and email them a copy of the money transfer document.

When they received it, they phoned me to say they had made a mistake with the number of the bank account I was originally instructed to wire the money to. They emailed a new account number to me and asked me to re-send the money and that the original amount would eventually be returned to my bank account as the 'incorrect' account number they originally provided, was an error on their part and no account in fact existed.

I was then 100% aware it was a scam and refused to repeat the wire transfer and they became irate and reminded me that I had signed a legally binding agreement.

I had resigned myself to the loss of my £5,100 and decided to put it behind me, when three weeks ago, I checked my account online, and discovered that my £5,100 has been credited to my bank account, minus about £100 which I assume was for the bank fees, currency fluctuations etc.

I consider myself to be extremely lucky and I'm now a far more savvy person after my experience. Valuable lesson learned.

Hi,

and thanks for your answer.

I did find more information on Enterprise Acquisitions.
Link: https://www.justanswer.com/law/b4c1k-investigate-authenticity-enterprise-acquisitions.html
Seems there is little info on the net regarding this company. Or perhaps hard to find, since the name is constructed of frequently used words, thus making it har to search and find any relevant info. Same with Sky Marketing.

I am severing all my ties with them, and will not take any more phone calls from them.

Grandlink C.P.A. Ltd.

Aonther scammer who contacted me regarding my Paragon GPS shares:

Clément De Bonnet - Forensic Accountant
Tokyo - New York

Grandlink C.P.A. Ltd.
https://www.grandlinkcpaltd.com/
Phone: +813-4578-2106

First I was not sure, but now I am. He just sent me an email quote:

"Could you please sign and send your SCBO Form 4 (document from the
Nasdaq received a few weeks back, attached to the email) and send it to:
legal@usoreg.org
This is the compliance team at the US Offshore Registry Commission and
is the institution the Nasdaq advised us to request guidance from.

This way, they will be able to determine whether or not there is buying
activity on your shares and we will be able to take the right avenue
(selling your shares on the Nasdaq platform or using them for our tax
optimization campaign)."

And checking whois shows the usoreg.org domain is just a few weeks old I am 100% convinced this is a scam. They have used a registrar called namecheap making it even more obvious.
