[Resolved] Secure Platform Funding / advanced fees scam – do not trust secure platform funding
I almost lost $35, 000 trying to finance my business through Secure Platform Funding, through contact with a Mr. Bruce Green – he emailed me telling me that he could get me a multi-million-dollar loan, telling me at first that the details were up for deliberation if I decide to take up the offer. I needed funding for my business and hadn’t yet considered a loan, but Green assured me that he had the profile and credentials needed to expedite the process. He presented proof of transfer of several bank instruments and other alleged proof, although I’m not at all an expert on counterfeit documents I suspect that most of what he sent me must have been manipulated or edited somehow because I now doubt this man is legitimate.
He said he was CEO of Agreements for Secure Platform Funding, and required an escrow deposit of $35, 000 to help broker a loan through HSBC. I have since looked him up and discovered that there are several complaints regarding him and his company for bank guarantees/letters of credit, and since making my deposit I have not yet heard from any representatives at any legitimate bank, HSBC or otherwise, regarding my supposed loan. Mr. Green only contacted me once telling me to be patient but has since cut off any contact and I’m sitting here with a burning hole in my wallet and without the funding I need for my business. This is the information I found on SPF:
Springates East, Government Road, Charlestown, Nevis
The phone number (+44) they use is registered to the UK, yet their address is in the Caribbean. I’m sharing this information to help keep others who may have received contact from SPF stay FAR AWAY from them and their “services”. I should have done rudimentary digging on these criminals BEFORE even CONSIDERING wiring them any money – their website is full of gibberish content and I’m confident that something is going on here.
Customer care service did everything in their power to resolve this complaint. All attempts to contact the complainant have failed. Therefore, this complaint has been annulled and must not be considered where image of the company in question and it's services are concerned.

Secure Platform Funding Customer Care's Response, May 27, 2018
This Complaint is COMPLETELY FALSE! Secure Platform Funding has been the victim of several an internet troll attacks by scammers that Secure Platform Funding has shutdown and exposed in this link below:
The Scammers that we have publicly exposed have chosen to write completely FAKE Reviews about our business like the ones on this site. Often they pretend to be FAKE clients who have lost imaginary money (that was never paid to us), on imaginary deals (that we never contracted with us) and complain about imaginary services (that were never even requested with us).
In most cases the Fake complaints lodged against our business lack any kind of Factual evidence at all. No payment dates, no contracts, no documentation, no bank payment receipts of any kind, no client name, no client email, no client address, no client Identification, no bank officer and no bank officer details.
Most complaints are fake, baseless, accusations that can not be substantiated because they AREN'T TRUE! The complaints are fairy tales made up by scammers who do not want to EVER be identified because they are a Fake party making a Fake complaint about an imaginary and totally fictitious transaction that NEVER even occurred!
