This guy is probably one of the lowest quality follow-on fraudsters we have ever seen. The fonts are all over the place, the grammar is incredibly poor, StratXMarkets is not in liquidation because it has never actually existed and he can’t even get the name of StratXMarkets correct.
Fortunately our investor doesn’t have any quaries ! We believe this incredibly poor scammer means queries, unless of course he is genuinely aiming his emails at people who own “quarries” (correct spelling) in which case he’s going to be very disappointed with the number of people who respond. The chances of a quarry owner having invested in StratXMarkets must be a billion to one ! (Just having a joke at this idiot’s expense).
Finally, to cap off his incompetence, he forgets towards the end of his email just which company he is actually pretending to be !
At the start he claims to be from Mayfair Associates Ltd which has been registered for 35 years and he gives a link to their details. By the end of this short email he describes himself as the Account Manager at Mayfair Associates Escrow Ltd which doesn’t actually exist.  The website domain was registered only 9 months ago.
There is a company called Mayfair Associates Escrow Services Ltd which was incorporated two years ago. Perhaps he is pretending to be from them. We think it is rather odd that this company actually exists so there is the possibility that these people are somehow involved in the scam, but whatever – it doesn’t matter. The key thing is that THIS IS A FOLLOW-ON FRAUD AND YOU MUST NOT PAY THEM ANYTHING. THEY WILL DISAPPEAR WITH YOUR MONEY.

Simon Whittley-Ryan Response

Simon Whittley-Ryan Response 300 300 Safe or Scam Support

Further to our Article published yesterday (click HERE) we are publishing extracts from the Simon Whittley-Ryan response. His response did not specifically address the points in our Article with evidence to support his position. It was more of an attack on SOS for highlighting the financial position of his companies. We made it clear that if he were to provide evidence of any errors we would correct them. He seems to have a particular dislike of one of our senior investigators who wrote to him.

Cease and Desist from this activity immediately and remove all defamatory and libellous content concerning me, my colleagues and anyone else associated with my businesses forthwith.

Any statements emanating from you are without foundation and predicted in lies and falsehoods and entirely fabricated to serve your own ends.

Simon Whittley-Ryan

Managing Director

St Helier Capital Management Ltd.

This is fairly standard stuff when we highlight the actions of people who have misled investors.  They normally go on a rant venting their anger claiming we are the bad guys for daring to request that our clients be paid what they are owed in the contracts.  Unfortunately for Simon Whittley-Ryan his claim to have investors’ best interests at heart doesn’t stack up when all of his companies are in default on their debts. One of his companies has just been wound up by a creditor, another is midway through a winding up petition brought by an investor, another investor has today lodged a winding up petition with a solicitor against a third company owned by Whittley-Ryan, and another client of ours has advised that he intends to file a winding up petition against a fourth Simon Whittley-Ryan company in September.  Mr Whittley-Ryan’s trail of unhappy investors is a very long one.

We have sympathy for any business which has genuinely fallen on hard times through market conditions or losing a major customer etc because that can happen, but that is absolutely not the case with Simon Whittley-Ryan. He is ruthless when it comes to exploiting investors. He has at least four companies which have all followed on from each other in raising millions of pounds from investors and they have all defaulted on scheduled interest payments and capital repayments, leaving ordinary investors facing huge losses. He has been paying for his extravagant lifestyle using investors’ money and when that money runs out he simply incorporates a new company and does it all again. It is not just investors who have suffered at his hands. We have also been contacted by contractors who have undertaken work for his companies and they claim not to have been paid either. Other parties have also contacted us to provide information. We have promised to respect the confidential nature of that information and will not publish it.

Now that it has been reported Simon Whittley-Ryan is effectively running Avianta Capital Ltd, which owns the investment fund based in Ireland, we are very concerned for investors in that venture.  Our recommendation is that they insist on strict controls over their investment funds.

Our response to his email was as follows:

Dear Mr Whittley,

As you have not refuted the claims made in our article nor provided any evidence in support of your position we shall take that as an acceptance that our article is accurate and shall publish same.

The weather in [CITY] is 12C with a 50% chance of rain and winds of 5km/hr.

Avianta Capital

Avianta Capital 360 240 Safe or Scam Support

This article was sent by email to Simon Whittley-Ryan of Avianta Capital Consulting Ltd because it references that company and four other companies he controls. Those companies are Highgrove Osprey PLC, St Helier Capital Management Ltd, Win River Ltd and Win River Developments Ltd. We gave him the opportunity to correct any errors in this article and to provide evidence in support of his corrections. Mr Whittley-Ryan wrote a long and aggressive email in response. Unfortunately he did not specifically address the points below nor provide any evidence to suggest that our comments are inaccurate. We have published extracts from Mr Whittley-Ryan’s response on a separate blog. The link is at the bottom of the page. 

Our Article 

Two ex-directors at the now defunct airline WOW Air are working on founding a new low-fare airline from the ruins. The new airline is to be called WAB Air with ‘WAB’ standing for ‘We Are Back’. The twosome is working on raising the airline from the ground with investors”. These are extracts from several global newspaper reports on the newly resurrected Icelandic Airline.

That sounds very promising, but when we read the rest of it we became concerned this venture might go into a very sudden nose-dive !

The first 25% shareholding has been taken by parties involved in the original airline. The remaining 75% will be owned by Irish company Avianta Capital Ltd.

Avianta Capital Ltd is owned by Aislinn Whittley-Ryan, daughter of one of the founders of Ryanair.  Mrs Whittley-Ryan runs an equestrian business called Brockingbury Stud Limited so it is surprising that she is now changing tack (no pun intended) and entering into the field of venture finance. Here is a LINK to the register at Companies House.

It may be explained by the fact that she recently married a Mr Simon Whittley, who now describes himself as Simon Whittley-Ryan.  Mr Whittley-Ryan is well known to us as he is the founder and controller of four UK companies which have defaulted on interest payments and repayments of investment capital to investors amounting to millions of pounds.  There is nothing to suggest that Mrs Whittley-Ryan has been involved in her husband’s business dealings.  The registered office of Brockingbury Stud Limited is a residential property which has been used by Simon Whittley-Ryan as the registered office for some of his businesses.

Here is a LINK to a newspaper article on Mr Simon Whittley-Ryan’s company called Highgrove Osprey PLC.

A Winding Up Order was issued over this company on 13th August 2019. See this LINK

Another of his companies, St Helier Capital Management Ltd, is also the subject of a winding up petition filed by one of our clients.  See this LINKOne of the supporting creditors is 90 years old. His contract completed its term and Simon Whittley-Ryan still refused to repay him his overdue interest and his capital investment.

Another Safe Or Scam client has signed the necessary court papers to wind up the third Simon Whittley-Ryan company, Win River Developments Ltd, and these will be filed with the court in the coming days.

And finally, to complete the set, his fourth company Win River Ltd has also defaulted on interest and capital repayments to investors. We have been advised that an investor in Win River Ltd intends to file a winding up petition in the coming weeks if he is not paid his debt.

It seems that everything Simon Whittley-Ryan is involved in ends up in payment defaults and potentially significant losses for investors.

Mr Whittley-Ryan has been promising investors there will be an imminent “refinancing” of his companies which will allow them to meet their debt obligations, but he has been promising that for a very long time. Clearly the petitioners owed money by Highgrove Osprey PLC lost patience with his promises.

What makes us think that Simon Whittley-Ryan has anything to do with WAB Air and his wife’s company Avianta Capital Ltd ? Well, he is the sole director of a UK company called Avianta Capital Consulting Ltd and we don’t think that is a coincidence.  We presume the aim of this UK company is to provide “consulting services” to Avianta Capital Limited.  We wonder what those consulting services might consist of bearing in mind the business acumen and ethics of its founder.

The Times newspaper based in London has reported that Simon Whittley-Ryan is certainly involved in his wife’s company.  Read what they have to say on this LINK.

It will be interesting to see whether it is Aislinn Whittley-Ryan or Simon Whittley-Ryan who is the driving force behind the financing of this new airline venture. Considering the history of Mr Whittley-Ryan we are of the opinion that any potential investor should exercise extreme caution.  They would be wise to insist on very stringent controls over how the money is to be used.

If Simon Whittley-Ryan is involved perhaps “We Are Back” Air might be better described as “Watch Your Back” Air.

StratXMarkets Binary Options Case

StratXMarkets Binary Options Case 4100 2500 Safe or Scam Support

StratXMarkets was the trading name of an organisation involved in scam binary options trading.  It used a series of money mule companies to collect the money.  One of those was Access Corporate Ltd.

Safe Or Scam was able to trace some of the payments made by a client to a Metro Bank account which we believed was owned by Access Corporate Ltd.  We challenged the company over its relationship with StratXMarkets and were not happy with the response we received.

On 22nd May 2019 the High Court in London issued a winding up order over Access Corporate Ltd. The case was brought by a Safe Or Scam client who had lost a considerable sum of money in the StratXMarkets binary options scam.  The case has now passed to an insolvency practitioner appointed by the Official Receiver.

The company director of Access Corporate Ltd, Mr Derrick Williams, had tried to avoid an investigation by placing the company into voluntary liquidation before the winding up hearing.  He failed and there is now an official investigation into the company’s affairs and the conduct of Mr Williams.

There were several other money mule companies involved in StratXMarkets and we are now turning our attention to those companies in order to recover funds for our clients.  Some of those companies have dissolved but that is not an issue for us because we can still take action.  The people involved in the StratXMarkets scam include Gregory Odia, Alan Curran, Ross St Clare and Bogdan Pepenica.  The majority of salesmen who contacted investors were using false names.

Safe Or Scam has ongoing investigations into several other binary option trading operations. We would like to hear from any investors who have been victims of these schemes.  Our action against StratXMarkets is proof that even if there appear to be no leads we can still find some of these scammers and hold them to account.

Prosperity and Allchurch

Prosperity and Allchurch 360 240 Safe or Scam Support

Prosperity is a large property developer with at least a dozen developments in the Midlands and North of England. A large group of investors is now involved in an action to recover their money.

In 2018 Safe Or Scam started an investigation into Prosperity, its partners and associates. We were initially interested in the Prosperity developments at Bentley Court, Parkwood Rise, Tameway Plaza, The Parade and Prosperity House.

As a result of our investigation more than 70 investors are taking part in an action against Allchurch Solicitors, the law firm which was engaged to represent investors in the purchase of the properties. Allchurch was “the preferred law firm” recommended by Prosperity. It is our experience that when a law firm is recommended by the other side this often means that they are not as stringent and impartial as they should be. The claim put forward by investors is that Allchurch Solicitors, the owner of which has a long historical association with the owner of Prosperity developments, was negligent and did not act in the best interests of its client investors.

Prosperity continues to promote its latest developments in Birmingham and Halifax. We understand that it has been making discounted offers to investors in an effort to bring more cash into the company.

Prosperity has not responded to complaints made by property investors which include allegations that the company misled them in the sales process by making false and misleading statements in the brochures and in the sales literature. Investors’ dissatisfaction with the whole package include the fact that there were inflated valuations; shoddy workmanship; poor quality fittings; lower rental incomes than were described in the promotional material; guaranteed rentals that never materialised and a lack of response from Prosperity to valid customer complaints.

The solicitor representing investors is now in discussions with the Allchurch Solicitors insurance company and solicitors representing the insurance company. We expect other parties to be dragged into the claim because we believe there are third parties who were culpable and have some liability towards investors in this Prosperity action.

Investor expectation is that they will receive full refunds from this investment and will be able to rid themselves of the over-priced, low quality, mis-represented properties which have become a millstone around their necks and are continuing to result in ongoing losses. We will report on the outcome when the cases is finally resolved.

Strategy Markets

Strategy Markets 300 200 Safe or Scam Support

Safe Or Scam has started an investigation into Strategy Markets.

Strategy Markets operated a bogus equity and commodity trading platform whereby investors agreed to allow “traders” to buy and sell shares and commodities using the investor’s money.

Strategy Markets promised average monthly returns of 1.1%.  It was a very well-constructed scam offering different packages to investors with titles such as SWP Portfolio or PPP Passive Preservation Portfolio, but of course none of these packages really existed.  The investor’s money was stolen the moment they paid it over.

The investor’s trading history could be viewed online when they logged into their account.  The investor would be able to see a lot of impressive graphs, a history of the trades undertaken on their account, movements on equity and commodity indices in real-time etc.  It looked impressive but the trading history was entirely false.  None of the trades were ever made. Investors were watching a piece of software designed to produce a fake trading history.

Strategy Markets is a new investigation for us and is not to be confused with StratXMarkets, a binary option trading scam for which our investigation is well advanced and one where we have been achieving results.  One of the larger money mule companies involved in collecting money for StratXMarkets has been closed down and a team will now be going through the company records.  The StratXMarkets investigation is entering a new phase which we hope will lead to a recovery of funds and criminal charges being brought.

The hook for trading scams such as Strategy Markets is to offer investors the opportunity to make a small initial investment or to reassure them that “for the first month all trades are undertaken at the traders risk”.  The scam trading company will then adjust their fake software to show healthy profits over that early period.  The investor, believing the profits they see on the screen are genuine, is then persuaded to increase their investment.  That’s how this kind of scam works.  They also apply the 4:1 rule by ensuring that for every four profitable trades they show one loss-making trade.  If every trade made a profit the investor would think it was a bit suspicious so they throw in the occasional loss to make it look more realistic.  On a regular basis the investor is contacted to increase their investment because they are told that their account is doing really well.  Before long the investor has paid over far more money than they ever intended.

A clue to Strategy Markets being a scam is that none of their documentation actually contains any company details.  There is no company registration number or company address on any of their letters or invoices.

However, like most of these bogus trading schemes they use money mules to collect payments from investors.  If any investor is ever seeking to invest with any organisation and the investor is asked to pay their money to an entirely different company, or to an account in an individual’s name, that should set alarm bells ringing. WALK AWAY BECAUSE IT WILL BE A SCAM.

We are working the Strategy Markets case on behalf of a client and we are following up on some leads.  If anybody can assist us with information on Strategy Markets please make CONTACT.

Van Gossum Consult

Van Gossum Consult 300 233 Safe or Scam Support

Safe Or Scam has been commissioned to by a group of investors to investigate the activities of Van Gossum Consult.

Van Gossum Consult has been operating a bogus trading scheme and a range of fake services.  The people behind the company have close links to the people involved in both the St Johns Asset Management scam and the Eberhard Cramer scam.  They are using the same money mules.  For example, the money mule service provided by Crest Security Contracts Ltd, a company owned by Soren Andreasen, which accepts investor money into its bank account and then transfers it out to another account unknown to investors thereby providing a shielding service which makes it almost impossible for investors to discover the ultimate destination of their money.

I say “almost impossible” because there are actually ways that investors can force disclosure from the banks and find out where the money has gone, but it costs money, is not an easy process and takes time.

Readers of our two earlier posts titled ‘St Johns Asset Management’ and ‘Aren Pedersen’ will know that Soren Andreasen is also linked to dopey Tommy Bishop of Parkwood Financial Ltd, another money mule company which steals from members of the public.

Van Gossum Consult has already come to the attention of the Financial Conduct Authority which issued a warning on 10th June 2019 as follows:

“Van Gossum Consult is a clone of a FCA authorised firm. 

Addresses:  110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY and St Mary Axe, London EC3A 8BF and International Finance Center, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong and One Raffles Place, Tower 2, 1 Raffles Place #27-62, 048616, Singapore.

Telephone:  0208 895 6910  and  0207 183 2602

Email:  and

Van Gossum Consult has a slightly different model to the other scams in that it has recently been requesting that investors pay their money to the bank accounts of Singapore registered companies.  That is a dangerous ploy because Singapore is renowned for coming down hard on people who try to operate scams through their jurisdictions.

Van Gossum Consult claims to offer the following services:

a Managed Currency Trading Account; Wealth Management; Commodities Trading; Tax Planning; Insurance Planning; Retirement Planning and Investment Planning.  It claims to have 189 Expert Advisors, 437 Corporate Clients and 45 Global Partnerships.

That is quite an achievement for a company that only bought its website domain name six months ago.  It is an outright scam and investors should definitely not invest with this company.

Scam Alert

Eberhard Cramer Ltd

Eberhard Cramer Ltd 300 233 Safe or Scam Support

Eberhard Cramer Ltd is running a scam operation in the UK. The company has established a clone operation of an existing German company. On its website Eberhard Cramer Ltd claims to be FCA regulated. The German company is FCA regulated, but only to sell insurance products. The UK company is not regulated.

That is hardly surprising because Eberhard Cramer Ltd was incorporated in the UK on 13th May 2019 by a Mr Kevin James Atherton and has nothing to do with the German company.

The model is identical to that of St Johns Asset Management, whereby the scammers find a company which is FCA regulated and then build a website pretending to be that company. We published an article about St Johns Asset Management and give a link to that article below.

With St Johns the main people involved in that scam are Soren Andreasen, Aren Pedersen and Tommy Bishop. We believe Tommy Bishop is linked to this new Eberhard Cramer scam. Our opinion of Tommy is that he isn’t the sharpest tool in the box. In fact, he’s a bit thick. It appears to us that dopey Tommy was given the task of incorporating Eberhard Cramer Ltd but messed it up. He got the spelling wrong and two weeks earlier, on 26th April 2019, actually incorporated a company called Eberhand Cramer Ltd ! Mr Atherton had to step in and form a company with the correct spelling.

Eberhard Cramer is clearly going to be used by Tommy Bishop, Soren Andreasen and Aren Pedersen in their latest scam venture. We are interested to hear from anyone who knows their current whereabouts. We already have a lot of information on them and are working on behalf of clients to recover payments made to their companies i.e Crest Security Contracts Ltd, Parkwood Financial Ltd, Clearline Contracts Ltd.

We’re pleased we are able to publish this article before Eberhard Cramer gains too much traction. This article may help to stop these crooks from stealing a lot of money from ordinary people. We have an update on Aren Pedersen coming out later this week.

Aren Pedersen

Aren Pedersen 4160 3120 Safe or Scam Support

Aren Pedersen is the director of a company called Clearline Contracts Ltd. This company is a money mule for a scam involving the bogus purchase of Uber shares, claims made in relation to Chinese withholding tax and other false transactions.

Investors are sold fake shares by people who like to hide their true identities. They then use accomplices like Aren Pedersen to accept money from investors into the newly established bank accounts of their companies. The money mule passes the money on to the scammers and keeps a percentage for themselves. They know what they are doing is illegal but they think they will not get caught. They’re wrong.

Aren Pedersen’s company, Clearline Contracts Ltd, was incorporated on 22nd May 2019 and began accepting money into its account almost immediately. Other accomplices in the scam include Soren Andreasen and Tommy Bishop aka Tommy dimwit Bishop.

We are chasing down Aren Pedersen’s current address and those of Soren Andreasen and Tommy Bishop on behalf of our clients. Thanks to those people who have provided us with useful leads. Here is a picture of Aren Pedersen. His friend Soren Andreasen is also Danish.

Aren Pedersen of Clearline Contracts

These are not the only parties involved in the scam. We’re choosing not to publish some of the others for the timebeing.

Although initially approached by one investor our articles on the activities of these three men and their involvement in the fake St Johns Asset Management Multi-Currency Alpha Fund of Funds (what a ridiculously long title) have attracted more investors. If anyone has more information on these people please make contact.

Martin Finch of Phenco

Martin Finch of Phenco 400 267 Safe or Scam Support

Martin Finch was the sole director of Phenco Ltd before it was wound up by the High Court in London on 10th July 2019. He has now been replaced by the Official Receiver, a person appointed by the UK Government to investigate the company’s affairs, assess the company’s asset position and to determine whether Martin Finch and his accomplices have committed any offence. The Official Receiver will also determine the best course of action for investors to recover as much of their investment as possible.

Martin Finch is also the sole director of Osage 1 Ltd, Sooner Energy SPV-1 Ltd, Kansas MB Project Ltd and Kansas B2 Project Ltd. In May 2019 Osage 1 Ltd was accused of running a Ponzi Scheme in a separate legal action in the High Court in London. Martin Finch was aided in the mis-selling of the investment by Glenn King and David Hyman. These are people who have previous history of ripping off investors in oil scams. They have since moved on to Tristone Holdings Ltd and have been selling involvement in oil leases in the USA to yet more unsuspecting investors.

On 8th August 2019 Martin Finch wrote to Phenco investors. He could not resist telling more lies. He wrote:

“As previously mentioned, the completion of the project was capital raise dependant, and this is why the US team and I decided to recycle the revenue generated back into the project as we had not completed the raise”.

Well, that is news to all the shareholders in Phenco Ltd. For the past 15 months Martin Finch has been telling shareholders that he is holding their royalty money and is waiting to pay it to them. He has written to shareholders many times to tell them that the reason he cannot pay them is because he cannot find “a payment platform”. Now he is telling them that he has been “recycling” the money and there never was any money to pay to them. He goes on to say that the company “is now at the mercy of the governmental administration and insolvency services“. For years Martin Finch has refused to provide information on assets and contracts to investors. Now at last shareholders will be able to find out exactly what the company owns and whether or not it has any value. They will learn how much of their money was paid to Martin Finch, Glenn King and David Hyman. These oil schemes were simply ways for the perpetrators to get rich at the expense of investors. The court hearing in May for Osage 1 Ltd heard evidence that 81% of the shareholders’ money was deducted in fees and commissions. Only 19% was sent to the USA. These deductions were authorised by the company director – Martin Finch.

The team in the US have been involved with Finch, King and Hyman for a very long time. We have evidence that they knew about the high level of deductions from investors. The key people are Rick Coody, Ron Clark, Ron Herzfeld and Wanda Sanders (also known as Wanda J Sanders). Coody’s son, Travis Coody, has also entered the family business. These people have a lot of oil companies between them. We are in the process of gathering more information.

Wanda Sanders uses her company InvestorVU LLC to hold her interests. We will be looking into her involvement in greater detail in future postings.
