I am myself a Victim of Privilege Wealth Scam (a payday loan scam) which Brett Jolly is behind. If you are one of us, please join us to expose the scammers on the media and the social media. Email us at: We will never get our money back, we have to admit it, but we can help other people not to step into their trap any more at least. We have to get ourselves justice and we have to stop their continuing scams.

If you happen to be an investor of Privilege Wealth in Germany, or you know one, please contact us. We won't reveal your identity or personal information if you don't want. Standing up and speaking out your experience of being victim will be very helpful to a news coverage in Germany.

If you are not one of us, then stay alert, don't become us.

Here are Brett Jolly's famous scam stories:

- 16 years ago, Brett Jolly's Holland Moorehouse in South Africa made more than 8000 people lose their investment for holiday accommodation and he left SA in a sudden without anyone knowing.

- Here are some other investment scams beside pay day loan of Privilege Wealth and Creditech:

Timber in Ghana to get minerals in Ireland / Non-existing property in Brazil / Carbon credits......

- Professional stuff and website, beautiful stories at beginning.
- Pretending London-based offices / stuff turned out to be in Spain.
- Partnership in Gibraltar never used banks of Gibraltar, instead, all transactions were made to UK accounts.
- Never received your title of what you have invested or in the case of Privilege Wealth, no new contract regarding the resolution.
- No one answered the phones / emails/ etc and all the directors disappeared after you put money in.
- Companies went to liquidation.
- Brett Jolly argued that he was a victim himself ( he really enjoys arguing and being a victim himself ).

His former employee told me that his telesales got 40% commission to sell such stuff in Green Planet Investment Holdings.

-When you search for the “biggest diamond in the world” on Youtube, you can see Brett Jolly promoting this “amazing diamond” which was found out totally FAKE.

Privilege Wealth scam:

Again, German investors please join us in the exposure of these scammers: Brett Jolly ( based in Marbella / Asia) , Mark Munnelly (based in Marbella / US), Richard Colwell (based in London), Peter Strokes (based in London) , Martin Sampson, Andrew Sweeney (based in Marbella) and Tomasz Pawelek.

These are the companies involved with these scammers which continue to propose "payday loan investment" to potential investors like Privilege Wealth did:


Those companies are registered in Florida. Others such as Creditech / Investabl / International Portfolio Service / Prestan Invest are registered in UK.

Again, if you are an investor and especially if you are in Germany, please join us! Thank you.

Anafin Capital Limited, which OffshoreAlert understands raised approximately $10 million for investment in a fraud known as Privilege Wealth and is, therefore, at risk of being sued by aggrieved clients, has applied to be voluntarily struck off the companies register in Britain.

-------------news from Offshorealert

Anafin Capital has targeted Asia, Australia and Arabic World.

Liquidation meeting scheduled for fraudulent Privilege Wealth Plc

he directors of British firm Privilege Wealth Plc, which was exposed as a fraud by OffshoreAlert nearly 15 months ago, have convened a creditors' meeting for January 12th to consider a resolution to wind-up the company and appoint a liquidator.

Details are contained in a notice that was prepared by the company and published today in The London Gazette, a publication of the United Kingdom government that serves as an official public record.

As required by law, Privilege Wealth have asked creditors to nominate a liquidator for consideration at the meeting to compete for votes along with the directors' choice of liquidator, John Kelmanson, of KCBS LLP, trading as Kelmanson Insolvency Solutions.

The company's directors are Richard Colwell, in whose name the notice was published; Mark Munnelly, and Martin Sampson, all of whom are facing potential substantial liabilities as a result of the estimated more than $40 million investment fraud that was perpetrated by the Privilege Wealth Group, which comprised companies and individuals in several countries, most notably England, Gibraltar, Luxembourg, Panama, and Spain.

As previously reported by OffshoreAlert, the ultimate controlling person in the group was British serial fraudster and disqualified U.K. company director Brett Jolly, a.k.a. James Jolly, while other senior participants included Munnelly, Sampson, British salesman Andrew Sweeney, and South African attorney Peter Stokes.

Brett Jolly and his fellows are continuing their scams in Asia, please be cautious of "payday loan investment". Do not believe in them, do not put one cent in their accounts- they are worse than a casino. You have no chance to win. You want to make profits, they want to take your capitals.

"The biggest source of investment for the Privilege Wealth Group today broke the news to its investors that it is massively insolvent due to fraud and mismanagement.

In a letter to its investors, Gibraltar-domiciled Privilege Wealth One Limited Partnership disclosed that the British arm of the group that owes it $38 million - Privilege Wealth Plc - has defaulted on its debt, gone into administration, and will eventually go into liquidation. The administrators are Stephen Katz, of David Rubin & Partners, and John Kelmanson, of Kelmanson Insolvency Solutions.

The $38 million owed to PW One LP is in addition to what PW Plc owes to Luxembourg-domiciled Helix Securitisation Fund, which OffshoreAlert understands invested more than $7 million in the scheme, meaning the Privilege Wealth Group's total insolvency is likely to exceed $45 million.

Today's letter to investors by Gibraltar-domiciled Privilege Wealth Management Ltd., as general partner of PW One LP, was unsigned but the author described themselves as "Managing Director" of PWML and a "Past Director" of PW Plc, which indicates that it is either Andrew Sweeney, 50, or Mark Munnelly, 33.

In the letter, PW One LP investors are asked to support a "restructuring proposal" that will "give investors the chance to recoup all of their capital over a 3, 4 or 5-year time horizon". The proposal involves PW One LP novating its claims against the Plc "to a newly informed US based LLP" that will receive any funds paid out by PW Plc and either "re-invest those funds into fresh US assets" or "distribute those funds to existing investors".

Given that, as OffshoreAlert previously disclosed, Privilege Wealth Group was operated as a fraud from the outset, the proposal appears to be an attempt to, at best, string investors along and, at worst, continue the fraud by asking them at a later date to invest more money."
-Cited from Offshorealert

These scammers apparently haven't collected enough victims and their objective is always to get more victims and to put more money in their own pockets.

Never ever get involved with offshore (non-UK) investment advisers is the moral of this story

as they are most likely to be frauds and not authorised or regulated by

The Financial Conduct Authority.

Always always meet an Adviser in their Office first and do thorough due diligence before

parting with any money.

Brett Jolly has always been trying to draw victims' attention to his accomplices of Privilege Wealth and PW itself. However, victims should be aware and remember that Brett Jolly is the key person behind all those scams. Those who were / are tied to Privilege Wealth have created numerous companies- to continue the scam of "Payday loan investment " designed and guided by Brett Jolly.
