OurSpace Partners LP

OurSpace Partners LP 2000 1333 Adam

OurSpace Partners LP is a Scottish Limited Partnership which raised funds for the OurSpace workspace Ponzi Scheme.

A Scottish Limited Partnership (“SLP”) is a structure which contains two types of partner. They are called Limited Partners and General Partners. Limited Partners take no part in the running of the company – these are the investors. General Partners are the management team. They are not investors.

According to filings at Companies House this SLP had registered Limited Partners who had invested approximately $4m into the partnership.

There was only one General Partner running the partnership. That was a company incorporated in the UK called OurSpace Holdings Ltd.

On 19th June 2019, a Safe Or Scam client, who we had guided through the entire process, successfully petitioned the High Court in London to obtain a winding up order against OurSpace Holdings Ltd. The basis for the petition was that the contract between the Limited Partner (our client) and the SLP required the SLP to make quarterly interest payments to the Limited Partner. It had failed to make those payments for nine months.

OurSpace Holdings Ltd was controlled by Malcolm Douglass during the fundraising period. Malcolm Douglass was a key figure in the OurSpace empire. He was replaced in the SLP in 2018 by Kevan Halliwell, the co-founder of the collapsed OurSpace Ponzi Scheme. Halliwell, through his solicitor, argued that the debt was owed by the SLP and not by OurSpace Holdings Ltd which was only the General Partner i.e the Manager of the SLP. However, the court accepted our client’s argument that the contract contained a clause which stated that in the event of the SLP failing to make a payment the liability to pay falls upon the General Partner. Our client had followed the correct debt recovery process in the UK, OurSpace Holdings Ltd had refused to pay, and our client was therefore entitled to petition the court to wind up OurSpace Holdings Ltd.

Now that OurSpace Holdings Ltd has been wound up the matter has been passed to the Official Receiver. An application has been made by the client’s preferred liquidation firm to take over the case. OurSpace Partners LP (the Scottish Limited Partnership) is still technically in existence. It has not been dissolved. It just does not have a functioning General Partner at present. The liquidator will now take control of the General Partner and will be able to keep the SLP running until such time as the investigation is complete.

The liquidator will be looking into the affairs of all parties involved, including the directors, and we look forward to updating investors in the near future.

Phenco Oil Scam

Phenco Oil Scam 400 267 Adam

Phenco Ltd has lost a case brought by a Safe Or Scam client in the High Court in London and will now be wound up by Order of the Court.

Phenco was one of the five oil scam companies controlled by Martin Finch, Glenn King and David Hyman. The Order was issued on 10th July 2019.

On 11th July 2019 Martin Finch tried to claim he had informed investors in February 2019 of a re-organisation of the oil contracts. Of course, none of the investors received this fictitious notification in February. It is entirely false.

During May and June 2019, Martin Finch stopped communicating with investors. It could be alleged that he was off trying to falsify records to throw everyone off the scent, but we wouldn’t allege that.

Any person involved in a fraud of this kind of size would be in serious trouble. They would be better holding their hands up and owning up to what they’ve done. It is never wise to try to cover up after the event because you will always be found out and then you are as guilty as the people who benefitted the most.

It appears that the people involved in oil scams are so toxic that even their solicitors stop working with them.

We’ve done a good job of bringing the Phenco scam to an end. Phenco Ltd will now be wound up and we expect other associated companies to follow. Tristone Holdings and Venture Equity are other oil scams run by the same people. Now we can move to the next phase which is to gather evidence of fraud and bring in our funders who are keen to support private prosecutions. Phenco may not realise it but it will have left a trail. Scammers always do.

MCI Sales Ltd

MCI Sales Ltd 450 676 Adam

During May and June, Safe Or Scam successfully recovered money for two clients who invested with MCI Sales Ltd, now renamed as TSM Corporate Services Ltd (“TSM”).

MCI Sales, also known as MCI Developments, MCI Corporate and MCI Management, changed its name to TSM Corporate Services Ltd in August 2017. It may have been driven by the portfolio of scam investments it had been selling to ordinary members of the public and the resulting bad reviews linked to its name. The key people involved in TSM are Matthew Cullum, the company director, alongside his right-hand man Thomas Scotland. They live in Deal and Folkestone areas. We have the home addresses.

Recognising their involvement in multiple scams was likely to damage their ability to attract new clients, and already having a database of investors built up over many years, Matthew Cullum and sidekick decided it was time to establish their own investment proposition. They did so under the branding of ‘South East Property’.  Their offer to investors was a short-term bond, typically two years, paying a high interest rate. Contracts were originally in the name of MCI Sales Ltd and more recently TSM Corporate Services Ltd.

Unfortunately, investors often didn’t receive the promised interest payments.  When they chased up the payments they were met with delaying tactics.  When it came time to repay the capital Cullum and Scotland stopped responding to investor emails. They just didn’t pay.  TSM Corporate Services are still selling their bonds.

Investors contacted Safe Or Scam with their concerns. We have successfully recovered the full investment + interest + costs + our fees for two investors and are now involved in the funds recovery process for a third investor.  If you are an investor who took out a bond with MCI Sales Ltd or TSM Corporate Services Ltd and you have been experiencing interest or capital repayment difficulties, please contact us. We may be able to help.

Access Corporate – May 2019

Access Corporate – May 2019 400 267 Adam

Access Corporate Ltd was a money mule company used by the binary option fraud which operated under the name of StratXMarkets.

SOS 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. We then assisted a client in taking remedial action through the UK court process.

On 22nd May 2019 a Judge at the High Court in London issued an order to wind up Access Corporate Ltd. The case was brought by a Safe Or Scam client who had lost a considerable sum of money in the StratXMarkets scam.

There will now be an investigation into the company by the Official Receiver or by an insolvency practitioner appointed by the Official Receiver.

The company director, Mr Derrick Williams, had tried to avoid an investigation by placing Access Corporate Ltd into a company voluntary liquidation before the hearing. If creditors do not act quickly when a CVL is initiated it gives directors an opportunity to push through a very quick liquidation with no investigation. Mr Williams had already appointed his own preferred liquidation firm and had provided it with a list of creditors. That list did not include our client. Clearly there was an intent to speed through a dissolution without fully informing the liquidator of all creditors.

The liquidation firm was contacted and informed of our client’s claim. The result was that the court case was allowed to proceed and a judgement was made in favour of our client. There will now be a proper and detailed investigation into the business of Access Corporate Ltd. We expect the investigation to have both financial and criminal repercussions for the company director.

There were several other money mule companies involved in StratXMarkets and we are now turning our attention to those companies.

OurSpace Flop

OurSpace Flop 500 333 Adam

Last week Kevan Halliwell presented his latest rescue plan – the OurSpace flop. As it turned out it was a complete waste of everyone’s time. As you will see below, Kevan Halliwell didn’t even check with the administrator of OurSpace Investments Ltd (“OIL”) whether his plan was feasible. The administrator has blown it out of the water. If Mr Halliwell had bothered to check he could have saved everyone a lot of time.

For those who missed Kevan Halliwell’s conference call it was the same old story. The points Mr Halliwell wanted to get across were:

  1. OurSpace can rise from the ashes. He is the man for the job but he needs $2.5m to buy the shares of OurSpace Investments Ltd;
  2. The assets are under threat and investors could lose everything if they don’t pay him. Investors need to act fast;
  3. The people who do pay him will get 47.4% of the shares in OIL. The people who don’t pay him will share only 2.5% of the shares in OIL. Kevan Halliwell will own 50.1% and will have complete control of OIL.

He did make some interesting statements which were:

  • Kevan Halliwell says he will never be liable to repay investors. This was in response to a question asking if he had any personal liability. We disagree with his view. We believe he is liable to compensate investors;
  • There never was a bond issue despite this claim being made in the promotional material;
  • OVL had signed a contract to invest a further $286m but did not go through with it;
  • OurSpace was “starved of cash from day one” – his words. This is interesting because had investors known this was the case they would not have invested. Indeed, all the promotional material was focused on how well the company was doing from day one;
  • It was “not possible to pay investors from just two sites” – his words. If that was the case why did he keep selling workspaces and debentures without warning potential investors that it would not be possible to pay them from the operational sites ?;
  • Cashflow is very poor and the companies cannot continue trading on an insolvent basis. This would surely suggest that the risk of failure in his proposed new structure is very high, yet Mr Halliwell is asking investors to invest more money.

We thought it would be wise to check some of the comments made by Kevan Halliwell with the administrator of OIL. The administrator confirmed that Mr Halliwell’s new proposal was simply not possible. We therefore question what Mr Halliwell was trying to achieve. Kevan Halliwell made the statement that OVL were intending to invest $286m in OurSpace. It is our view that a company with that kind of money is likely to hold the OurSpace companies, and Kevan Halliwell himself, liable for their loss of $2.75m. We would expect them to be considering legal action against Kevan Halliwell for misrepresentation and obtaining money by deception. That might explain why Mr Halliwell is keen to raise more money from investors. It would be expensive defending himself from that allegation. The reply we received from the administrator of OIL was:

I cannot comment on the proposal that Mr Halliwell has been offering investors, save for the fact that, from the perspective of the administrators, selling the shares in OIL or creating a debt for equity swap in OIL will not work.

I have therefore made clear to Mr Halliwell that any proposal can only be to purchase the entire share capital of the Dubai operating company and any equity split as between investors/stakeholders should therefore either be a division of shares in the Dubai operating company itself or, more likely, in a new holding company incorporated to acquire and hold the entire share capital of the Dubai operating company.

In other words, the entire proposal by Kevan Halliwell is another attempt to encourage investors to send more money to a structure that will not succeed. We wonder why Mr Halliwell isn’t offering shares in the Dubai operating company. Could it be that shareholders in that company are entitled to receive company accounts which would reveal where all their money has gone ?

We would recommend that any investor considering investing in any new scheme proposed by Kevan Halliwell should insist upon seeing the full and detailed accounts of the Dubai operating company. Kevan Halliwell has never explained to investors how $30 million could just disappear.

Phenco Oil

Phenco Oil 300 200 Adam

An update to Phenco oil investors was sent out by Martin Finch on 4th April 2019. In brief it said [paraphrased]:

Chainbox Technology has been contacted by several shareholders and Safe Or Scam. As a result Chainbox has decided to withdraw its services for the time being.

Martin Finch now has to start from scratch finding a company solely geared to distribute payments to a large number of shareholders for as little fees as possible.

There then followed a paragraph about progress at one of the sites, along with some photographs. We aren’t interested in that aspect because we would remind investors of three oil investments in Illinois which were established and sold by UK companies between 2012-2014. Those investments were:

Rocky Point Energy  /  Armadillo Energy  /  Hockley Energy

All three of those investments provided investors with photographs of progress. They also welcomed investors to the well sites to see for themselves. Unfortunately none of the wells in the photographs and none of the sites were actually owned by the companies. They were scams.

We are not saying that the photographs provided by Phenco oil are fake. The fact is that nobody knows. The history of previous US oil scams proves these things are easy to fake. What is not in doubt is the fact that Mr Finch has taken in around £15 million for five oil companies and yet shareholders know absolutely nothing about the US companies involved or where most of the £15 million went. All we do know is that the money didn’t go into the purchase of assets.   

In our contact with Chainbox Technology we described the fact that the five oil companies had used Jade State Wealth to make payments. We described three known scams which had also used Jade State Wealth. One is in administration and two are in liquidation. One of them is the subject of a fraud investigation and we fully expect the other two to also become the subject of fraud investigations. We asked the owner, Mr Spurling, to provide us with reassurance. Our request is copied below:

I am writing to ask for your assurance that you have checked out the source of funds paid out to shareholders in all five [oil] companies and you can emphatically verify that neither yourself nor any of your companies are involved in illicit transactions or money laundering. We will post your reply online.

Whilst you may feel that it is acceptable for 70% of a new shareholder’s investment to be paid out in fees and commissions, we do not. We regard that as a scam.

Mr Spurling did not respond. However, Mr Finch did respond even though we did not write to him. His response was that we should leave Chainbox alone.

So now it appears that Mr Finch does not have “a platform” to make the payments to shareholders. We have a solution for him. He could use a company called PHENCO LTD.

Hundreds of thousands of companies in the UK manage to make payments to their shareholders so why can’t Phenco oil itself make the payments ?

The last filing on the register at Companies House shows that Phenco has 194 shareholders. That is not a large number. Payment can be done very easily in one day. Most UK bank accounts allow multiple payments to be made online via bank transfer. Even with “a platform” Mr Finch has to provide the platform with the bank details of every shareholder and he has to tell the platform how much to pay each shareholder.

It’s very odd that Phenco can produce royalty statements for every shareholder showing the percentage and amount they are owed, but can’t then press a few buttons and make the payment. Surely having to give all the information to a platform is much more time-consuming than Phenco just making the payments itself.

Mr Finch’s excuses do not make sense. It appears that he goes to great lengths to ensure that shareholders cannot trace the source of the payments. He uses offshore currency exchange services and then a payment distribution provider. Although his UK companies allegedly have the contracts with US counterparts the royalties are never paid into the bank accounts of the UK companies. That is a very strange arrangement which raises questions about money laundering and the tracking of payments.

Mr Finch is the only employee of Phenco Ltd. He could process the payments in one day. If he did it himself he would save the company a lot of money.

So there is the solution. Phenco Ltd could pay its own shareholders from its own UK bank account.

Shepherd Cox

Shepherd Cox 150 150 Adam

Shepherd Cox Ltd aka The Shepherd Cox Group “operates in a range of market sectors including residential, commercial, hotel and leisure” according to an email received by Safe Or Scam on 26th February 2019. The email was from Adam Stanborough, Founding Partner of the Shepherd Cox Group. It was very brief and only contained the following statement:

“Further to your website http://careroominvest.co.uk, please remove the reference to Shepherd Cox. Your accusations are untrue and are not supported by any evidence.”  We have actually taken down that website now because it served its purpose.

We make no secret of the fact that we are very concerned over care home room and hotel room investments. These are very high risk investments but are represented as being low risk. We took a look at Shepherd Cox Ltd and could find no reference to Mr Stanborough being “a founding partner”. He certainly isn’t listed as one at Companies House.

Then in a bizarre twist on 28th February 2019 we received an email from James Yarker, Sales Director of Fortem Global Ltd, one of the unregulated sales agent companies selling this high risk investment. Their email was also very brief and said:

“Further to your website http://careroominvest.co.uk, please remove the reference to Fortem Global. Your accusations are untrue and are not supported by any evidence.”

This surely has to be the height of laziness i.e to write exactly the same two sentences as Shepherd Cox but just replace the words ‘Shepherd Cox’ with the words ‘Fortem Global’. Needless to say they did not identify the parts of the website that they take issue with. We stand by our comments about these high risk schemes.

On 6th March 2019 we received another email from Adam Stanborough. When we say another email it was simply the exact same email he had sent on 26th February. Presumably we will get another one from Fortem Global very soon.

We are genuinely concerned for investors who have invested in care home rooms and hotel rooms. We are now undertaking a more thorough investigation of Shepherd Cox group and would like to hear from investors in any of their products whether it be residential, hotel rooms, commercial or leisure. Please contact us.

Please click HERE to read our blog on THE CARE HOME GROUP which sells bedrooms in care homes, or click HERE to read our blog on SIGNATURE which also specialises in the sale of hotel room investments, amongst others.

Please click on this link to see our more recent article on six Shepherd Cox hotel companies which are being taken to court by investors.

 

The Care Home Group

The Care Home Group 150 150 Adam

THE CARE HOME GROUP / CARLAUREN GROUP

The Care Home Group Ltd is part of the Carlauren Group Ltd and offers investors the opportunity to purchase individual bedrooms in care homes. The business model is very similar to that of companies which offer hotel rooms to investors, except for the fact that The Care Home Group Ltd offers investors a choice of income options. In our opinion this is a very high risk investment. If the company operating the care home walks away or goes bust, the investor is left with one room in a large building which would be almost impossible to sell. Any prospective purchaser would have to deal with 30, 40, 50 or more separate room owners, often spread around the world with different expectation levels, and this would inevitably result in a much lower sale price for the home. There is a genuine danger that the empty care home would deteriorate without ongoing maintenance which, in most cases, investors would be expected to finance. What is worse with a care room investment compared to a hotel room investment is that a failure of a care home drastically affects the lives of vulnerable people. In a hotel situation the hotel just declines to take any more bookings. In a care home there will be elderly residents faced with uncertainty and having to move to a new home.

When we see “guaranteed buy-back” schemes it always raises a red flag with us. More often than not the company contracted to buy-back the unit does not have the funds to do so. By the time the buy-back is due the company has found a way out of it or has dissolved and doesn’t exist anymore.

If you or I were to buy a house we would be able to obtain an independent valuation on the property. However, room investments invariably have no independent valuation of the room. How can a valuer assess the value of a care room which is wholly dependent upon the quality and longevity of the care home operator ? When an investor buys a room they are not actually buying a property although it is made to look like that. They are buying into the care home business itself because without the business the room is virtually worthless. It seems to us that too many operators make up the valuation based on what they say they will pay in rental e.g if they promise to pay rental of £10,000 then a room in their eyes is worth £100,000. If they promise to pay £8,000 in rental then the room is worth £80,000 and so on. There is no sense in this approach because if the company goes bust and pays NIL in rental then it suggests that the room is worth nothing, which ultimately is not going to be too far from the truth.

Who owns TCHG and Carlauren Group ? When you strip it down to bare bones it is one man – Sean Murray. Mr Murray also owns a private jet business and has more recently moved into establishing a bizarre cryptocurrency based on his own business. In the future, the families of residents in the care home will have to buy his cryptocurrency and pay for care services using this currency. What on earth is going on ? How long will it be before the rental income paid to investors will have to be paid in Mr Murray’s strange cryptocurrency ? So….. in a nutshell, families will pay genuine cash for a cryptocurrency fabricated by Mr Murray. Does this sound normal to you ? It rings alarm bells with us. We are already involved in exposing dodgy cryptocurrencies and trying to recover investors’ money from those kinds of investments. We will be following this new scheme very closely.

We are inviting investors in Carlauren Group, The Care Home Group and indeed any other care home room investment to contact us with details of their investments. We believe the schemes may breach Financial Conduct Authority regulations and may be unlawful. We are looking into these aspects.

Tristone Holdings Ltd

Tristone Holdings Ltd 360 240 Adam

Tristone Holdings Ltd is a new oil investment offered by the people behind Osage1, Phenco, Kansas MB, Kansas B2 and Sooner Energy.

The original five oil companies operate from this address – Suite 11, Braxted Park Road, Great Braxted, Witham.

Tristone Holdings Ltd operates from Suite 11a, Braxted Park Road, Great Braxted, Witham.  There is no Suite 11a.  It must be a desk and chair in Suite 11…..

Glenn King has been touting Tristone Holdings around various sales companies in an attempt to raise another £4m+ from investors. This will be disappointing news to the 700+ investors in King’s other oil companies who have not been paid their quarterly returns for the past nine months. At Companies House these five original companies are shown as being run by Martin Finch, however there is no doubt that Glenn King and David Hyman are the people establishing and controlling these companies.

Tristone Holdings Ltd is selling its own shares to investors (much the same model as with the other oil companies), but this time instead of using unregulated sales agents to sell the investments, working unlawfully from hard-sell scripts provided by Glenn King, it has gone fully regulated and is selling Tristone through regulated channels. It does bring into question the honesty and integrity of some FCA-regulated companies.

Of course, there is no mention of Glenn King being involved because that would be the kiss of death to the investment. Neither is there any mention of Martin Finch. It seems that his links to the failing oil companies are not a good selling point.

So, if Martin Finch has been dropped from the team, who actually makes it into this select group. Well, there are the usual suspects based in the USA. Unsurprisingly, Rick Coody is one of them. It must be very difficult for Glenn King to find anyone to join the team with the reputation that he, Hyman and Finch have. Rick Coody is known to investors in the five UK oil companies because he is also listed as being one of the US-based members in their teams. He already has a conviction for fraud relating to an oil investment so he is ideally suited to be in the Tristone Holdings team.

There is also mention of UK company, Venture Equity Ltd, being the fourth member of the team, whilst also being the corporate director of Tristone Holdings Ltd.

As you may have guessed, the registered office of Venture Equity Ltd is Suite 11, Braxted Park Road. It must be very difficult to move in that small office with so many companies allegedly working out of there.

According to the Information Memorandum “[Venture Equity] has previously engaged in capital raising ventures within the oil and gas sectors….” What that statement fails to mention is that the fundraising was for Finch, Hyman and King enterprises and all have ripped off investors by paying huge commissions and fees from investor subscriptions, typically 50% – 70%, to Glenn King and his associates. 

What the Information Memorandum does not mention is that there is another director of Tristone Holdings Ltd. Odd that it doesn’t mention him. That director is Mr Henry George Berry. Why no mention of him in the sales literature ? Why no mention of Henry George Berry being in the team ? Could it be that he, like David Hyman, has learnt the value of hiding in the background and keeping a low profile ? Not only is Mr Berry not mentioned as being in the team, on page 5 where it actually lists the directors of Tristone Holdings Ltd there is only Venture Equity Ltd, yet the register at Companies House clearly shows there are two directors – Henry George Berry and Venture Equity Ltd.

Well, we can put that to rights here and now. Step forward Mr Henry George Berry who, it should be noted, is not only a director of Tristone Holdings Ltd but is actually also the sole director and sole shareholder of Venture Equity ! That may change as unfortunate investors are persuaded to invest in this dishonest investment.

So.…. Henry George Berry is an undeclared director of Tristone Holdings Ltd whilst also being the sole director of Tristone’s corporate director, Venture Equity Ltd, but he doesn’t want his personal name to show up anywhere in print. Confused ?

A lot of effort has gone into ensuring that Henry George Berry is not mentioned by name. Perhaps that was one of the conditions he laid down before agreeing to be involved in yet another dubious investment. We will be publishing more on Mr Henry George Berry in future because he has an interesting past with more links to Glenn King.

Investors in the five oil companies may also recognise the name of Henry George Berry from the recent past. We have been provided with copies of the declared dividend statements issued by Martin Finch. It is unlawful for a loss-making company to declare dividends. Some might say that was done to make investors think the company was profitable. Those present at the Board Meetings where those illegal dividends were declared were Martin Finch and Henry George Berry.

Finally, investors may want to know the names of the FCA regulated entities involved in this investment. There are two of them. They are:

Blue Water Capital Ltd of 53 Calthorpe Road, Edgbaston. Birmingham. B15 1TH. This company is worth closer investigation. It was only incorporated in July 2017 and is a one-man firm. Mr Henry William Daniel Porter is the sole director and sole shareholder. As with any new FCA-regulated business you should be very careful who you choose to partner with.

City One Securities Ltd, One Royal Exchange Avenue, London. EC3V 3LT. This is the company which has approved the Information Memorandum, but which “accepts no liability for the accuracy of any information contained in the document“.

OurSpace Website

OurSpace Website 150 150 Adam

The website we established for investors in the collapsed OurSpace workspaces investment is under maintenance and will be back online soon.

This is just to let investors know that OurSpace is still under investigation by Safe Or Scam and we will be continuing our efforts to recover the investments of our investor group.

We are told that the administrator has a number of corporate creditors of OIL but only one individual person. That individual is Kevan Halliwell. None of the individual investors who bought workspaces or dentures or limited partnerships are being recognised as having any rights over the two OurSpace sites in Dubai and Marbella. In our opinion that is an entirely false and scandalous position.

Sadly, we believe this case will drag on for quite a while. Halliwell and his associates will want a quick resolution so that dodgy dealings can be swept under the carpet and they can get away without any charges being levied against them, but we are not going to let that happen. Our investor group is determined to get their money back and we will oppose any effort to dispose of assets that belong to investors and not to OurSpace Investments Ltd or the host of OurSpace subsidiaries.
