      Here are some other investment scams beside pay day loan of Privilege Wealth and Creditech: Timber in Ghana to get minerals in Ireland / Non-existing property in Brazil / Carbon credits...... - Professional stuff and website, beautiful stories at beginning. - Pretending London-based offices / stuff turned out to be in Spain. - Partnership in Gibraltar never used banks of Gibraltar, instead, all transactions were made to UK accounts. - Never received your title of what you have invested or in the case of Privilege Wealth, no new contract regarding the resolution. - No one answered the phones / emails/ etc and all the directors disappeared after you put money in. - Companies went to liquidation. - Brett Jolly argued that he was a victim himself ( he really enjoys arguing and being a victim himself ). Doesn't it sound familiar, all this stuff? Telesales got 40% commission to sell such stuff in Green Planet Investment Holdings which of course that Jolly was a director of. I guess those sales should have known all this were fraud investment if they were paid 40% commission and the persons who hired them should have known better that no such investment was real. Am I wrong? BTW, 77 companies that Brett Jolly was a director of were all dissolved. 77 times ! No wonder there are victims everywhere in the world! If you know anything about those scams or if you are a victim of those scams yourself, please contact us : . We may not know how to get back your money, but we do know how to get us justice.

        16 years ago, Brett Jolly's Holland Moorehouse in South Africa made more than 8000 people lose their investment for holiday accommodation and he left SA in a sudden without anyone knowing. There is still one piece missed in the puzzle: who was the real victim of the fake "biggest diamond in the world" ? Anyone helps me answer this question?

          One thing I will say for you, as that you do post replies in order to keep a balanced viewpoint, even if some of your own summations are far from factual. Therefore, in that vein, here is my public reply to Silvia. I suppose in the last 30 years I have conducted over 5,000 commodity and asset transactions, the vast majority of which have been successful. Of course there have been some failures too, and we all know people just love to talk down as opposed to talk up. If people liked giving compliments instead of making wild accusations, your blog wouldn’t exist. Ghana Timber; no idea what she is talking about, never been to Ghana, never dealt in Ghana timber. Did do a deal 15 years ago with Angolan Timber, and that was quite successful all around. Not one person lost a penny. Minerals in Ireland; I was involved in a peat/compost deal with a company in the U.K. they made representations that they owned a quarry in N.Ireland, after talking to the legal counsel of the real owner, I pulled out. I was involved for about a month or two. Green Planet; Brazil Land. About 600 people lost their investments, ranging between £12,500 and £100,000. The question is why? A UK government department closed down the company. Here are the allegations that were made.... A. “Green Planet did not own the land it was selling”. (A lie, it took a UK government department over a year to ascertain that it did actually own the land). B. “Green Planet did own the land, but it was selling land that had mortgages secured over it” (another lie, Green Planet never sold one plot of land that was encumbered). C. “Green Planet did not have planning permission on the development” (another lie, the developmental planning permission was always in place, and was legally valid the day Green Planet was closed down; in fact the very day the UK government department took action, the fresh water wells were being completed on the development). D. “Green Planet gave people alcohol and then sold them plots of land” (another lie, the government department were unable to come with ONE person who purchased anything after receiving alcohol, because it didn’t happen.) E. “Green Planet agents lied about how close to the sea the development was” (the official liquidator actually wrote to investors telling them that the development was over 12 miles away from the sea. The fact is, every single investor signed a map, to scale, showing the development was less than 3 mile away from the sea, which it is). F. “Green Planet failed to build properties for which it was paid” (another lie, NOT ONE person ever paid Green Planet to build a property, Green Planet only ever sold plots of land on a development with planning permission. It therefore could not be in default for building properties it was not obliged to construct). G. I was also personally accused of taking 3 tranches of £87,000 each from Green Planet, until they realised that it was either money I had already loaned the company, or I was transferring it on behalf of the company. So yes, 600 people lost their investment. They all purchased building plots in Brazil, those plots were fully paid for at the time of sale, exactly where Green Planet said they were, unencumbered, and extremely good value. The fault lays 100% at the feet of the incompetent UK government department that took over a year to discover the truth, by which time the company and development was destroyed. How on earth can a development company sit still for a year, with rent and salaries to pay, but with no income due to a a misguided investigation. By the way, there were much more than 77 directorships, it was certainly over 100, and they were ALL part of the same structure, once again you are making comments on things you know nothing about. Carbon Credits: shouldn’t have got involved, in over my head, in an industry I didn’t know enough about. Made a bad mistake, cost me some cash, and got me a uk Directors ban. I have to take that one on the chin. Green Diamond; Silvia, please do your homework. I was the Target in a land scam. They were trying to sell me useless farm land as diamondiferous mining land, and in the process relieve me of £300,000. You have the entire thing about face, it was I that reported the scam to Advocate Mopp and the South African police. Holland Moorehouse: I brought an urgent application against Holland Moorehouse in the Cape Town Supreme Court. It is a matter of public record, so get your facts right. Silvia, I have never met you, don’t know you, you tell me you have put money with Privilege Wealth, which might well be the case. But to blame me for a decision I was not part of, and for money I have not seen one cent of, is ridiculous. Please talk to the company concerned. Lastly, I would like to add, as stated I have probably conducted over 5,000 Business transactions. Recently, due to everyone playing the blame game, and not talking responsibility for their own actions, I was investigated by the UK authorities. The investigation took the form of my bank accounts being frozen whilst a 12 month investigation was performed into my business and finances. I was required by law to submit EVERY SINGLE bank transaction over £1,000, in EVERY SINGLE bank account I held, no matter in which country, for a period going back SIX YEARS. Suffice to say, when the investigation was completed, my assets were returned to me, and my bank accounts released. I received a letter from the Crown Prosecution Service informing me that the investigation was over, and two High Court judges signed the release of the restraints against me. I therefore have one question, how many people do you know that could open up every single bank account and transaction over the past 6 years in a full legal investigation, and come out squeaky clean? So, grow up, go and find who has your money, where it has gone, and take the correct legal action to get it back, instead of bleating at me to give you money I have never touched. Personally, 5-10 bad deals out of 5,000 isn’t too bad for me. People love to use my name when it suits them..... if they lose cash, regardless of the facts of the matter. I ALWAYS lay out the risks of any investment, and very often get people to sign a form setting out the risks involved in any business transaction they may wish to enter with me. Yes, I am (or was, I’m actually not sure of my current legal status with them) a Limited Partner of Privilege Wealth One Limited Partnership. There, you have it in writing, how does that help you? PS. If you do get your cash from them, maybe you can get my $750,000 too?

          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.
