Horizon Consultancies Scam.
A company calling itself Horizon Consultancies Ltd is running a follow-on-fraud against victims of investment scams.
On the same day we posted this article on Coastal Supported Living – LINK, where we mentioned Abdul Mukith who was involved in the Essex and London Properties scam, we received an email from an Essex and London Properties investor who had been approached by Horizon Consultancies. We’ve copied the email she received below:
Following our conversation today I can confirm that before we commence any communication with any potential buyers with the aim of securing you a potential sale offer for the assets or the ownership that you hold, we do firstly require the following:
- Proof of photo identification (Passport or Driving License)
- Proof of address (Utility Bill or Bank Statement within the last 3 months)
- Proof of purchase (Certificates or receipt of purchase)
- A Copy of an up to date Auditors Report
Once we have received these documents in house our compliance will commence with the verification procedures.
In the meantime, should you have any questions regarding the sale of your assets or investing into the financial markets, feel free to contact me anytime.

There is a genuine Horizon Consultancies Ltd at the Barrow-in-Furness address, but this email did not come from that company. The scammers are impersonating the company. The good news is we think we might have had a hand in forcing this latest move by this group of scammers. The clue is right at the very end of the email “please visit our website: https://www.everesttradebvba.com”
On 5th June 2021 we published this article on Everest Trade BVBA – LINK.
This latest Horizon Consultancies scam shows it is the same group of scammers who were behind the Everest Trade BVBA scam and because we’ve publicised that scam they’ve had to change their identity. However, in doing so in a hurry, they’ve not paid attention to the disclaimer at the bottom of their email and they’ve missed that it still contains a reference to the Everest Trade BVBA scam website.
The email uses a domain name ‘horizonconsultanciesltd.com’. That domain was bought on 2nd July 2021 i.e only 22 days ago. The domain is hosted in Chisinau, Moldova. Nice to know we’re disrupting this organised crime group and preventing them from taking more money from the victims of investment scams.
