Hotel Rooms and Care Home Rooms

Hotel Rooms and Care Home Rooms 150 150 Safe or Scam Support

We are not a fan of these investments. We have published a website which covers care rooms and hotel rooms. It lists our principal concerns. We advise prospective investors who are considering investing in one of these products to contact us BEFORE they invest. The investment level is typically £50,000 minimum so it is a lot of money to risk on a poor investment.

Binary Options Scams

Binary Options Scams 150 150 Safe or Scam Support

Binary Options, along with digital currency scams, have become the latest major scam trend. There are literally hundreds of binary options scam companies operating at the moment, many of them incorporated in the most obscure and secretive locations. We have published an information site for investors in these products.

Please be warned – there has been a recent surge in the number of recovery room scams associated with binary options. These are sites which claim to be run by reformed binary options traders who have moved over from the dark side to help investors recover their money. In many, many cases they are simply scam sites which will charge you a lot of money and deliver very little. We know of one client who was told that his initial fee for their assistance would be £25,000. When he said that he couldn’t afford that it was eventually reduced to £5,000. Thankfully he still turned them down.

Westway Holdings Ltd

Westway Holdings Ltd 150 150 Safe or Scam Support

An SOS review of a client’s documentation concerning an investment into a fixed-term bond issued by Westway Holdings Ltd resulted in her having the information she needed to confront the company and obtain a refund of her investment. She has since asked SOS to review another proposed investment BEFORE she invests. This is a very sensible move to avoid potential heartache in the future.
