I thought it might be useful to share some information on scam sites. If you know of any - why not make them public information.

This site: www.rosenstockcapital.com is a financial investment scam from a company calling itself Rosenstock Capital that claims to use Ellis Alden www.ellis-alden.com as its 'official clearing bank' and is registered through through: www.fesc.us 'purporting to be 'The Futures Exchange Securities Council'. This is an ellaborate scam. These are all financial scam websites. Some of the names of people claiming to be from Rosenstock are: Jack Dawson, Helen Scott, Jonathon Fleming, Oliver Dempsey, James Pope, James Peterson.

What was that saying about ... "A fool and his money ..."? think

Only fools with money to burn would even look at [censored] like that, surely?

I doubt that I'm the only potential mug who receives emails almost daily with "proposals" that I "can't refuse". Needless to say I bin them without even a glance (indeed, some of them look so long and involved that I can't imagine how anyone would even have the time to wade through them)!

Being poor is one thing. Being daft is quite another! smile

Umm ... I guess not. frown

What's that other old saying? "If something looks too good to be true, it probably is".

BTW, Burkina Faso seems to be another favourite these days (or perhaps I'm just "lucky"). smile

Hi John,

What evidence has come to light that these are scams?

I may have some info.

Darren, check the spelling and grammar, also you may notice that they mainly use a hotmail account as a means of reply and this does not ring bells with you. The main area of concern is "did you buy a ticket"


If you think hiring professionals is expensive, try hiring amateurs!

Hi Neil,

Yes i did, the did check the company through ellis-alden and the fesc, and the mechanics of the commodities were correct.

I was befriended by a Johnathon Fleming.

Where is the best place to report this.

Regards

Darren

Not really the best place if you're looking for sympathy either, I'm afraid (although I hope you haven't lost anything).

You could also say you have a lot more to invest but would like to meet and set up a sting or have I just been watching to many cop shows.
