I just read through the entire diligizer board stuff and finally posted a response. Simply put, through three years of griping and complaining by various dudes and dudettes about TYK and their fair anonymity, there is not one single actual NEGATIVE report. One one. Apparently, no one has lost any money. Here's a situation where a negative is a very highly telling POSITIVE. Can you begin to imagine a scam operation, using the same name for three years and, apparently, the same individual names within it, getting away with scamming businessmen...without a single one of them complaining???

Someone please lead me to them!

That may be exactly the case with this referred to, so called funder. If somebody dare to threaten the funders, they usually scare the s-h-i-t out of the applicant with law suits and threats to withdraw from the project investment etc. So the applicants wait patiently, don't report the incident, and often just give up. If a funder asks upfront fees for a project, put the funds in an (joint) escrow account, and make sure you can get the upfront fees back if the funder does not perform, within a limited time frame of 30 days or so. Do not transfer funds to funders for due diligence - use an escrow that you have control over as well. Beware.

Actually advance fee scams can run for a very long time before the guys get caught. For an example, see:

http://www.sfo.gov.uk/news/prout/pr_252.asp?id=252

Those guys strung their victims out for 4 years before anyone complained. Pretty sad really....

MY dear, you are not going to get any reliable information on this group. However these are the things that you simply have to do, in order to safeguard youself when it comes to ANY funder:
a. Deposit the required due deligence fee into an escrow account over which you have control. Your lawyer, your bank, and make sure that you are a signatory of the account. Or co-signatory.
b. Require a duplicate reciept for each expense from the escrow account, not from the funder, but from the consulant company doing the DD or the lawyer drafting the contract.
c. Insist that all agreements and contracts have reliable street addresses, building, floor, office etc, no mail box. In most countries, like Brittain a mail box address is not acceptable.
d. Take sufficient time to read all agreements and contracts. Insist in defined dates. Study very carefully, thinking which paragraph can be used to forfeit/ withhold funding. Look for the loopholes, from the funders side.
e. If the contract says that funding depends on obtianing insurance, insist on a date for completing the insurance. If insurance can not be completed by this day, what will the funders responsibility be to you?. Example: If the funder can not get insurance cover within 3 weeks, the funder will (i) give back your money (ii) fund your project without insurance (iii) whatever. Define it. Any other issue that may be subject to something. Define it, date it, and include recourse/remedy to get your money back.
f. It is true that funders attempt to maintain low profiles, however, if the funder decide to fund you, there is no reason to withhold information from you.
g. Insist on at least 2 or 3 references. You may be given reasons that these projects can not disclose information. Do not fall for this.
h. When signing any agreement,attach a copy of your company registration and your social security card. Insist that the funder does the same. If the funder means business, there is no reason to withhold this from you.
i. If a funder is not willing to comply with this, it is very possible that such a funder is very risky, and that you should rather not get further involved. Many excellent well-thought reasons may be given to you, why some information is being withheld. Do not fall for it.
j. This information does not imply a single funder, it is information you should apply to all funders.

Hi, I just read your notice. I have been following this page for a while. Now I don't want to get involved in much of the content of your mail, because I believe people have reasons for doing what they do. But why don't you let us have your husband's office information. Perhaps he can be encouraged to really have a serious look into TYK operations. There is obviously and seriously something weird going on.

If you are talking to this venture capitalist, you will most likely be asked to pay a large up-front fee before any financing has been secured. This is their way of testing to see if you're what is technically called a "sucker" or "performer".

They will call it a processing fee, placement fee, or credit application fee, offshore company and accounts fee, etc. They will show their kindness by offering to pay fifty percent of the fees, in order to impress you and obtain your trust. Before being asked for any fees you will be required to complete a mountain of paper work which will includes summaries, references, insurance forms, as well as undergo numerous interviews, while the lender remains rather anonymous. You will be informed that they do not give references in order to avoid mountains of applications.

Once you have invested substantial time and effort into the application process, you will hear back from them, that your financing has been approved. You will also have to transfer the processing fees to their accountant, or lawyer, whom you’ve never met. Soon they will sign a contract with you to secure your confidence. The contract will probably read that the payment of the investment funds is subject to an insurance wrap. This is the insurance scam, and the non-existent insurance brokers will be blamed for one delay after the other, if not the drought in Australia. Meanwhile the venture capitalist has already laid hands on your funds, and is at the same time enjoy cover by contract.

By the time you realize that you have been scammed, it is no longer 2004, but it is now 2007 and you would like to go after them, just to find out that they have scammed countless others; change their names, companies, locations, phone numbers, emails, etc. You will have no luck recovering it. A court judgment against them will do you no good because they the lack the assets to pay you back. Rest assured that the firm will always turn out to be asset-less, a shell company with a few or no employees. That is, if you can ever locate them to sue them, which is very unlikely. When you inform them that you will file charges agianst them, they will put their lawyers on you to recover all the "costs" that they had incurred to get you your funds. You are now terrified, because you can't afford that.

You see, you have been chosen. You have been scanned and chosen very carefully. You are the typical victim of a fraud scam, because you are trustworthy, honest and you have a little moeny. You are not very affluent and not very influential – in other words you pose little threat to them since you can probably not afford a 4 year long stretched out court case in order to recover you money. You are perfect. They are masters.

There are thousands of conmen who make their living by extracting these fraudulent fees from businesses desperate for capital. They will use agreements with unconditional clauses buried deep in the fine print which leave you with no escape recourse once the bad news comes in that your deal has fallen through. The agreements will contain hundreds of reasons why you can be denied independent financing under the contract and still be legally bound to pay the fees.

To protect yourself do the following at the outset:

- Ask for at least ten references. These are to be companies which they financed. Be sure to call these references and verify the claims.

- Be leery of people who use free email services such as Yahoo or Hotmail or even AOL. Legit service providers should have their own domains, although they also come cheap these days.

- If they look legit insist that any and all fees be held by your lawyer until the funds are securely in your bank account.

- Always get copies of their passports and ID cards. Check out their addresses and their phone numbers. Make sure they have real addresses and do not accept mailing addresses.
- Never, never give "upfront fees or deposits" to a firm that promises it will give you venture capital. Disreputable people posing as venture capitalists have milked thousands of people out of thousands of dollars over the years by asking for site inspection fees, due diligence fees, insurance costs, etc.
- If your lawyer tells you not to accept and not to pay, believe him. You will later thank him.

I don't understand why this board allows you to stay here. Next time you may use under the name of White House, and then next time you may use under the name of the Prime Minister. You are really a SICK PERSON.

You should NOT use the name of SFO to display here in this kind of public board.
