SCAM ALERT Ian ( Iain ) Horsburgh Ottoman Group OGI SA The Firm FRAUD

I have just discovered that Ian ( Iain) Horsburgh is a member of the crime syndicate Ottoman Group aka OGI aka SA aka The Firm aka Lynx. Ian changes between the names Ian and Iain not to be recognized by electronic search robots, as well as which company he represents. He switches his social media profiles on and off in an attempt to avoid getting caught.

Ian Horsburgh operates through the illegal enterprise Ottoman Group as well as OGI, SA, The Firm and Lynx. The Ottoman Group's way of conducting their scam is to charge upfront fees and retainers to fund investment activities which never pan out.

Before you interact with Ian Horsburgh, ask for references of deals they have funded as well as their management accounts for last year. Firstly, they have no credible references and secondly, their books show millions of dollars in losses. Is this representative of a company which supposedly has over 4 Billion USD under management? Not!

Their crime is in breach of regulations surrounding wire fraud, attorney law fraud and federal securities fraud. In dialogue with the National Futures Association, CFTC and United States Attorney’s Office New York, a large number of companies and individuals have been victims of their fraud since their start two years ago.

Direct and confirmed accomplices from the Ottoman Group are Dustin Collins, Stephanie Hillman and Brent Purin.

If you are in contact with Ian Horsburgh, be advised his association with the Ottoman Group is under investigation with strong evidence of conducting illegal business activities in the magnitude of millions of dollars. All Tier 1 financial institutions have been warned of their activities, and their companies do not pass background checking as a result.

It is your responsibility to conduct background checks when conducting business nationally and internationally. A search in yahoo, bing, google or any of the keywords "scam ottoman group", "fraud dustin Collins" or "scam alert Stephanie Hillman" will reflect some extents of their publicly reported fraud.

    Most names associated with Ottoman Group are fictitious characters. Others don't know that they are involved in James Collins scam. AKA: Dustin James Collins DOB: 12/23/1980. Ottoman Group cannot provide any type of legitimate service on any level. They have no connections with the banking or trading industry whatsoever.

    These guys are unbelievable. They never work on my project. As soon as they took my $2, 500 I never heard from them since. I requested to give me an update on what they have been done so far on my project but they never respond. They charge me $5, 000 and I paid them only $2, 500 and I never paid them the balance because I wanted to see if they are honest people or not... but I never heard from them back... Somebody help and stop these people from scamming other people...
