i had the same thing as ryan and chris said below. he said he was an investor and before we went further i would have to send money for a non-resident tax clearance. i said that was fine. i asked for specific phone numbers, addresses and references and he never gave me anything concrete. i then googled a couple of things and came across a scam report on things like this coming out of the UK. the description matched what i had been through. I wish it was legitimate because it has put my investment on hold for now.

I am representing This has ben a abuse on my client and we hereby suggest that this be removed as we are getting ready to file this case with the international court for the accuser to bring up his evidence of scam and defend this insulting and degrading act been done with this website. This is a very serious accusation and we are not letting it to be swept under the carpet!
