I am interested in connecting with any Institution, private investor or IFA with clients who have been scammed or defrauded in the last few years through complex financial arrangements or investments which have gone wrong.

Examples might be Carbon Trading, Ponzi schemes, Offshore Tax Avoidance schemes, Sideways Loss Relief, Bank Guarantee fraud, Boiler Room Fraud, Keydata investments. The more complex, the better.

www.Investor-Rescue.org is a portal created to provide a one-stop shop for Investments / Investors in crisis, we have investigators and solutions providers on hand to solve any issue. Please feel free to comment on Citywire so that other users are made aware of any issues or contact through the website for confidentiality.

Are you trying to be ironic ?

Your website fails to mention which country you're located in or in fact any contact details at all (no company name, no company address, no phone number...)

Seems you're exactly the sort of website we should be AVOIDING.

I had a look at his site after reading your post Clive and my browser extension plants a question mark warning before it even loads the web page.

Having lived overseas for a while, I have seen plenty of Expats get shafted with dodgy investment schemes and huge commissions but this sort of site would certainly not inspire me to part with any dosh

Fair point Clive!

I am UK based but operate globally, sometimes covertly, wherever the problem exists.

The website deliberately protects my identity as I have dealt with, and continue to deal with very complex financial investigations involving both Organised Criminal elements and prominent Terrorist Groups. Some of my clients have faced death threats in the past, particularly 'whistleblowers' and I feel it is entirely reasonable to initiate some degree of anonymity in the early stages.

Initial contact is completely confidential however I am more than happy to reveal my identity, supply a full CV and provide details of Company House registration and references where a legitimate case is presented.

You do raise a good point however. I am a strong advocate of transparency and will consider how best to address this issue.

In light of the above comments, some slight amendments have been made to the website to address the issue raised however It is also very important for us to provide protection to our operatives and associates.

My reason for posting was to provide a range of solutions to investors who have suffered from fraud and scams and to get some of these cases out in the open.

In the last year we have investigated a £350m scam investment in the UK which now appears to be being marketed elsewhere, we are looking at a possible third incarnation of a boiler room fraud which has netted $100m in the USA on two previous occasions, we have undertaken a full review of a $2m Bank Guarantee fraud perpetrated in the UK by a global crime organisation, we then used this information to counter two further attempts to defraud the client, one from China and one from the USA. We have also intervened in a counterfeit on-line pharma operation operated by Russian Mafia out of EU states with cyber activity routed through US accomplices.

There is a vast array of fraud, embezzlement, bribery, corruption and cyber crime being committed throughout the world with private investors often swept up in the process and most affected. They are also the least capable of solving the issues on their own. Our wish is to start the process of providing solutions and I welcome further posts, even if critical, if this gets some real dialogue going on the issues.
