OK, we know for sure that the delays have nothing to with fed bank procedures. They either prefer to postpone the funding, or have no intention of funding at all (most probable).
I agree with #2. They must either abide by the contracts and fund the projects, or back off and send back our funds.
I plan to send my request in tomorrow.

Well, I took your hint and contacted the Fed. The reply:

March 12, 2008


Dear *

This e-mail is to acknowledge our receipt of your e-mail on * March 2008

Because the transaction in question involves foreign processing, the Federal Reserve and any U.S. federal laws would not apply in this case.

We recommend that you contact the foreign country's financial institution if you have questions about the necessary authorizations to transfer investment funds from Hong Kong to *

In addition, the Federal Reserve System does not have a Pedigree Committee.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Sincerely,

Lets give them a last chance to come up with funds until end of the month. If nothing, then let's take action. There are many means and ways, not only authorities, but also privat security companies etc etc. They work much faster and much more efficiant than governement agencies. We just have to meet, to coordinate and get things organised and running. TYK left too many traces all over the globe.

Hello. It is not you who lost money. IT IS US!
I have lost my family, my friends, my company and the worst, my soul and dignity! Been always told to hold on a while "we are getting there". Been hearing different version of stories. Heck! What is going on?!!! Now, the only sole contact link is our broker. He seems to avoid taking any responsibility. Our sorrow and angers are not heard. I am already gotten sucked and do not mind being more sucked. Have already send my correspondances papers and even my brokers particulars to the FEDs...and let see justice.

Not to be rude, but these postings look heartbreakingly familiar to so many others over the years.

Stop wasting time posting all the classic "lulling" correspondence.

Wake up! You've lost your money. It's time to go after them legally. That means report them to all appropriate authorities, get others in the same boat to report them, and then be an annoyingly squeaky wheel. Gather together all evidence of fraud and specific crimes, and try to get an investigation started and some criminal charges filed. At the very least, get a good attorney and file a civil action.

Why waste time with official agencies? The contracts are signed by a company which does not exist. They are sitting in Asia, thats where such problems are solved in a different way than in the
Western world. The only way to get us all together somehow is through the brokers. This way we can see as well if they are in the game or not. Anybody can say that's a genuine email account and then you get a reply from Craig Smith or Robert Wood or no reply at all, maybe just to find out who we are...

Mrs. J

Your assumption that we are one of the biggest venture capital companies in the UK is correct. In most cases we would not engage to comment, but the content of the documents presented attracted our chairman's attention who found it so peculiar to say the least, that he felt you deserve an answer. It is a shame that you erased the name of the company and the people on all the documents, but we respect your concern.

Funding of our projects has never exceeded 120 days. A (real) private family trust according to our experience and firm knowledge is able to act much quicker than us. If an entrepreneur does not meet the criteria they would be notified appropriately, but once we issue our Letter of Intent we take full responsibility and we certainly do not concoct fairy tales and board resolutions to buy time. We are proud of the projects we have funded and if you visit our offices you will be surprised and impressed by the display of it and by our excellent references.

Usually due diligence fees would not be refundable, unless we caused a problem or an inconvenience, then we would refund within 48 hours and also compensate the entrepreneur for inconvenience and costs. In fact our board of directors would probably pay substantial compensation in order to protect our immaculate reputation. It has not been necessary in our 30 year history to refund an entrepreneur, but we do have that policy.

The insurance nonsense presented in the communications are unheard of. VC companies understand the risks involved and may insure against such things as political risks. In many cases we insist that the entrepreneur obtains the insurance. The insurers we attain are mostly European, extremely professional and complete a file within a week to fourteen days. No bribes are required and if it were it would be reported. It appears here as if the insurers are really in charge of the VC company; peculiar.

If this VC company has been funding projects for so many years the origin of funds would not be in question. Given the funds were in question one would expect the VC company to solve the matter prior to entering into a contract and also at least 20 years ago. For too many reasons to mention, their banking experience is questionable and in general their behavior is amateurish and beyond reasoning. More important: If they truly had the funds, we would not be communicating about this three years down the line. We doubt that they have any funds, and suspect that they might be moneyless brokers concocting tales to stay out of prison while earning a dishonest living. Let them prove the opposite by releasing the funds !

We are familiar with the Chinese culture of family-run-businesses but even so, the professionalism and integrity compares poorly with even very small family-run-businesses we have dealt with in China for decades. The communications certainly doesn't reflect the character of global players neither experience in venture capital. As you can see from our letterheads, we are a real company with real people and real offices, and the lack of it in the contracts and communications are very worrisome and probably represents the signature of a scam artist. The reasons presented to you for not sharing private contact information is despicable and presents same.

One of our Chinese associates in the New York glanced at their communications and remarked that they are classifiable as either amateurs (first timers) or schemers. He pointed out that our chairman would take exception if an employee at our office shared health problems or inappropriate acts of bribery and corruption with clients. Not that we engage in such. From a business point of view as well as an entrepreneur point of view this would discourage trust and not encourage trust.

The rules and regulations of the US Federal Reserve and the US Treasury apply within the United States and has no jurisdictions outside of the United States. Without getting into endless details and facts, both us and our Chinese associate in New York agree that it is peculiar. We have never suffered a delay caused by an insurer or a bank. Personally I'm in contact with board members of more than 15 other venture capital companies in Europe and never encountered such delays or tales as I prefer to call it.

Our chairman remarked that if it ever occured that we would not hesitate to invite you to our offices giving you full access to the communications between us and our insurer or bank, to protect our reputation and integrity. As you may assume our chairman takes pride in delivering and in professionalism. He also said that if there was a delay of a single week, that he would personally be on the first flight out, to go and meet with you in person. He frequently takes a personal interest in our entrepreneurs. The VC company in question displays no pride and no interest!

Apart from the obvious fact that the funds have not been released, we found no evidence among the documents that the offshore business had been completed. Although we do not engage in that directly it usually takes no more than 10 days. Peculiar that you apparently have not received it, unless you did not include it here. It seems that this VC Company is not living up to its own standards in more than one way. After looking at the dates on the letters it shows that even the update communications never seem to come on time! This would never be acceptable from any of our secretaries. Being punctual is very important in a million dollar deal.

We fail to see your reason for not turning all this documents over to the appropriate agencies in the British Virgin Islands, a private investigator, the courts or the police. Agencies and governments worldwide are very sensitive nowadays about financial crime, and although it may take some time, it is most unlikely that they will get away with it. The video footage obtained from one of the venues where they staged their wealth will probably come in very convenient. Make sure you hand it over to the appropriate agencies; IT experts can enlarge face pictures.

My personal view of the situation is that this VC company and its representatives have only one way of proving that that they are not schemers and not moneyless brokers; fund the project immediately; extend no more lame excuses; restore their own reputation and the reputation of their chairman; and most importantly stay out of prison. If they are really encountering problems their chairman should display sincerity; meet with entrepreneurs personally; allow access to all this secrecy; apologize; propose compensation; suggest a compromise. This is what one would expect from a professional honest chairman or his MD of a billion dollar venture capital company! Unless they have no money of course.

In reviewing this situation entrepreneurs can't be blamed for their dissatisfaction and for taking legal actions and while we encourage law enforcement. A British court would display no sympathy. If the VC company and its representatives take honour in themselves; take themselves serious; honoured the contract, no action would be required from the entrepreneur's side.

If they are indeed wealthy they should refrain from what we call "the blame-game" and take responsibility for their failure to transfer the agreed funds immediately or compensate for their failure. It is beyond our expectation that they are indeed able to fund a project, considering that they have been struggling with unforeseen problems for three years. It is unheard of and criminal, and they only have themselves to blame. Had they been doctors we'd be calling them kwaks.

Unfortunately we can't be of much assistance, except for commenting on the total madness of the situation. My communication is based on the request and recommendation of our chairman and as he puts it: in honour of true venture capital companies. It does not represent the whole venture capital world.

Afraid we can't spend more time on the issue, and hope you find this helpful.

By: don't get you

I don't get you guys. Why can't you just act business-wise?

Once I bought a home entertainment centre at a department store. It was on promotion, and I got it at a very low price. The department store agreed to deliver it within 3 days, "DEPENDING" on transportation.

It did not come. I called and some store attendant said they weren't able to deliver yet, since they had transportation problems. I said, SO WHAT? You are a "multi-billion-dollar" store. Make a plan. Get it delivered or refund me. Cleaning up your transportation problems is none of my concern. Just deliver!

Patiently, I waited another 3 days and called again. Some incompetent manager told me to be patient, I got such a GOOD deal, and they are so committed to their customers and it was worth waiting for it. I said: SO WHAT, good deal or not? I paid the price ! We are not family. This is BUSINESS. Deliver or give my money back ! Your committment is meaningless. Your commiment does NOT provide the desired entertainment in my tv room !

Another 3 days went by, nothing. I filed a law suit. Got my money back and more ! Does NOBODY in the world have the BUSINESS SENSE to do just that? What do you hope to gain here?

The only way the brokers can be of help is to connect us to each other. They may suffer consequences either way.

Guys, the only way to coordinate this is through the brokers, they have all informations and at the same time they are the only ones who know all the projects and their owners. You can't be sincere to suggest to report through this message board. I suggest the brokers should coordinate with all of their clients. This is the only way not to have Craig, Albert, Judy or whoever sitting in and laughing all the way to the bank. What do you think guys?

Forget the authorities. There are excellent private investigators that can find them within 48 hours.

It is a good idea to stand united, but how do we connect?

It is very easy to track down Craig / Robert. You hire the right investigator and he will make the man vomit information in no time.

Ever since I posted my last message in this board, I have been receiving very large number of emails, unfortunately most of them are faked. Now with the permission from our client yesterday, we have decided to post further information here, so people know what we are seeking for and why, we do not wish to waste our times and your times, if you are not real.

My firm is a professional due diligence company based in California and we are retained by a project company to support their lawyers in a legal proceeding as this project company had been arguing with TYK in a court case over a "libel claim" lawsuit since 7 years ago. They received the first batch of funding from TYK and then the second batch of funding was stopped because our client had issued a very strong and insulting letter to them on some arguments regarding the project development. TYK argued that our client had spent the funding money for personal luxury life enjoyment. TYK chairman was very angry on the compliant letter from our client and then stopped the next batch of funding. Our client then went to the court in the UK and sued them, hoping that the funding money will come again.

From all other current possible real projects and hopefully you may be one of them, we like to join together and submit a strong case in this "libel" court proceeding for our client. Please only contact me if your are real and have a real story to tell.

Once again we are real entity, and I am a real person. We only deal with real person and if you wish to join us here, you have to provide your real name, real email address and phone number and brief information of your project situation so we can verify individual situation on a case by case basis. We only work in a legal manner. Further information about our works and our office phone number will be provided on private basis. Our offer of $50K remains valid.

We have our way to sort that out in a legal manner. We are not going to post any further messages in this board.

Please do not email me if you are not real. We will respond to real cases only. Thank you for your attention.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
