If you don't wanna lose your money in a flash then I suggest you guys not to invest with these!!! The directors of this s******* Mike Donnan & Ben Morley are scamming [censored]

I used to work with these 2 c**** at a company called Collins & Kent which was an art investment company. They used to work in a boiler room years ago, I strongly advise you not to invest with these 2 c**** because you will be scammed!

    @apenman After signing up for whisky tasting for my staff, Harry James contacted me and pushed hard over the phone, not allowing me to talk, and railroading me into buying some over-priced 'rare' whisky bottles . Buyers beware, do your homework about the real value of these whiskies as they're most likely made in China

    The scammer encourages you to buy shares in a company that they predict is about to increase in value. You may be contacted by email or by phone. The message will seem like an inside tip and stress that you need to act quickly. The scammer is trying to boost the price of stock so they can sell shares they have already bought, and make a huge profit. The share value will then go down dramatically.

    If you invest you will be left with large losses or shares that are virtually worthless.

    Pyramid Vs Ponzi Scheme

    Pyramid schemes and Ponzi schemes share many similar characteristics in which unsuspecting individuals are fooled by unscrupulous investors who promise extraordinary returns. However, in contrast to a regular investment, these types of schemes can offer consistent "profits" only as long as the number of investors continues to increase. Ponzi and pyramid schemes are self sustaining as long as cash outflows can be matched by monetary inflows. The basic difference arises in the type of products that schemers offer their clients and the structure of the two ploys.

    Ponzi schemes are based on fraudulent investment management services – basically investors contribute money to the "portfolio manager" who promises them a high return, and then when those investors want their money back they are paid out with the incoming funds contributed by later investors. The person organizing this type of fraud is in charge of controlling the entire operation; they merely transfer funds from one client to another and forgo any real investment activities.

    On the other hand, a pyramid scheme is structured so that the initial schemer must recruit other investors who will continue to recruit other investors and those investors will then continue to recruit additional investors and so on. Sometimes there will be an incentive that is presented as an investment opportunity, such as the right to sell a particular product. Each investor pays the person who recruited them for the chance to sell this item. The recipient must share the proceeds with those at the higher levels of the pyramid structure.

    There are two additional important factors to consider: the only guilty party in the Ponzi and pyramid scheme is the originator of the corrupt business practice, not the participants (as long as they are unaware of the illegal business practices). Secondly, a pyramid scheme differs from a multi-level marketing campaign which offers legitimate products.
