Dunn and Burchill Scam

Dunn and Burchill Scam 300 233 Safe or Scam

Dunn and Burchill scam (and a linked site – Carlyle Capital Management scam).

A bogus organisation calling itself Dunn and Burchill claims to be a financial advisor company with offices in London and Tokyo.  A man called Charles Anthony is selling investments in shares.

A check on the FCA register in the UK confirms that there is no Dunn and Burchill registered as financial advisors.  The website was established in August 2019 yet they have false blog posts going back to 2018 to make it look like they have a history.

The website states:

Dunn and Burchill investment consultancy firm. We provide merger and acquisition advisory and strategic consulting services, and assist companies in obtaining financing through institutional placements of debt, mezzanine capital and equity. Our clients include both healthy and financially challenged businesses and individuals alike.

Wow – an organisation that helps “financially challenged individuals”.  Anyone who gives them any money will be taking a huge step towards becoming a financially challenged individual.

The website continues:

Dunn and Burchill is a professional wealth management company based in London and Tokyo. We have developed an enviable reputation for consistent, market-leading investments for our clients. We strive to exceed the high levels of client service, professionalism and commitment which our clients have come to expect from us. Dunn and Burchill has built its reputation as one of the industry’s leading investment companies on the results that it has shown clients.

Personalized service and attention to detail sets us apart from our competition and provides the confidence that your needs are put first. We realise the importance of ethics when it comes to investing. We evaluate each product, asset class and market for any possible adverse effects on the economy or people prior to committing funds. We see ourselves as your ambassador to the investment market and take a conscientious view of what we do on your behalf.

Clients put their trust in Dunn and Burchill because they know our relationship is built for the long-term, not on transactions.

If they were planning to build their relationship for the long-term you would think they would have purchased a website domain name that doesn’t expire in August this year.  They bought the domain for one year only.  Maybe they were “financially challenged” when they paid for it ?

You don’t need any more evidence that Dunn and Burchill is a scam, but if you are still sceptical and think they might be genuine (please don’t think that), there’s a second website linked to them called Carlyle Capital Management.  It’s built on exactly the same template but is targeted more at individual investors. This website domain name was only purchased in January this year yet it contains this fake testimonial:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for all your help with our investments. In particular over the past 3 years your help has enabled us to achieve our life long ambitions of a world trip and retirement home in Cyprus. We have happily recommended you to our circle friends and am happy for you to show this review to your prospective clients. We look forward to many more years of your service.  Alan and Julie Hardy.
