I'm always dubious about any sales pitch riddled with grammar and spelling mistakes. It suggests lack of attention to detail. If you want to make a pitch to scam money out of people, at least try to make your post look vaguely professional.

Just my opinion.

Steven

If you could let us know who regulates you, and what your registration number is, we can ask the regulator if they support such advertising (not that I believe the claims of "guaranteed" returns)

Very few people on this forum will believe any claims of "guaranteed returns".

I notice you're still struggling with grammar problems. A total absence of capital letters and punctuation still makes me very dubious about your credibility.

Perhaps you could provide a little more detail about the investment you're offering. A 30% return over 5 years only equates to approximately 5.4% per year compounded. Not enough to impress most people on these forums.

Sir,
I think you will find the people who frequent these forums are too experienced and intelligent to even entertain your proposal.

Stephen,
In order to ascertain your credentials perhaps you would provide the following basic details.
The name of your Company.
The address of your Company - not your wifes laptop at 3am as stated.
The landline telephone number of your Company.
Your Companies House Incorporation number.
Your VAT registration number.
Your FSA regulatory details and number.
Your Bank name and address.
Your Auditors name and address.
Your liabillity Insurance details.

Looking forward to your early reply,
Kind Regards,
Joe

In which sector is this particular investment you're flogging? We've all asked you for more details, and you've never really provided any satisfactory answers.

What sort of broker are you? A broker is merely an intermediary between two parties. Are you an independent broker, or do you work for a large or small firm? Are you regulated, and if so by whom?

I would never do any sort of business with someone without first checking their credentials.

You still haven't got the hang of capital letters and punctuation yet. When I'm hiring new staff, I rule out any CV with spelling or grammar errors. As I said earlier, it shows a lack of attention to detail and a lack of care.

Steven,
I think you're wasting your time.
I don't think you'll find any takers here.

On certain investments we are looking at 100 percent return and also no capital gains. so clients can beat the tax man legallly only 2 perent on your capital would be at risk, as 98 percent is safe

Hello Steven - welcome to The Anagrams Den. It's a bit like The Dragon's Den but we don't make astute financial observations about your proposition. Instead we look at the Anagram(s) of your name to establish your credentials. Regrettably on this occasion we're all out because your name is an anagram of "Ye Asset Vent" which in this country is a small aperture through which assets dissappear. Laugh, I nearly invested.

I am not sure if 30% guaranteed returns in 5 years are any good because there are people out there that can make that in a year. And they probably can make that for the next 5 years too.

Beat that?

Hi All,

This is my first time on this forum and after reading the above thread it is so far, the most amusing. It always astounds me how people trying to scam others can be so clumsy in going about it, but I guess seeing as there seems to be so many similar messages on othger forums it must some how catch others out.

Anyway, whilst I've come to this site and been entertain, entertainment was not why I set out.

I've recently heard alot in the press about crowdfunding/ p2p/p2b and have seen that there are a number of players in the market, I've learned that the main players are Zopa, Funding Circle and Rate Setter, with there being a number of New comers too such as Funding Knight (http://tinyurl.com/avg499s) and rebuildingsociety.com ( http://tinyurl.com/rebuildings ) .

So to cut a long story short, I'm interested to hear from an experienced savvy investor perspective, what everyone's thoughts are on this new alternative finance market . Has anyone had any experience in it ( either as a lender or borrower)? I've noticed that there are various different forms of crowdfunding too, such as equity, debt ect, does anyone have any opinion on which is better in the short/ long/ medium term ?
Any tips on how to approach lending to businesses on these sites?

I look forward to hearing from you, and learning from your experiences.

Thanks
