I have restricted shares in WWCC, and am being told by companies offering to buy the shares that as a foreigner I should not have been offered restricted shares. Obviously the companies offering to buy, and "help" de-restrict the shares, are scam-artists. I have just been approached by a company called Mont-Bec Asset Management (mr. Steven Goldberg), seemingly located in Tokyo, Japan, claiming to represent somebody now in the process of acquiring WWCC. Do you know anything qabout this and what do you suggest to do with this? I am fed up and want the whole thing out of the way.RegardsPal Jensen, Sweden. +46-730 792550,XXX@XXXXXX.XXX
Nothing, since all of the offers made have been too far fetched.
Hi, My name is XXXX XXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
You are correct that these are scams. Unfortunately, there's not a lot you can do other than tell them to stop contacting you.
You can report them to the local police department, but they get so many scam notifications that they really can't do anything. Usually, if you didn't lose money, they won't even investigate.
I know this. The question is: do you know the specifics around WWCC?
What does that stand for? There are hundreds of companies that have those initials.
World Wide Child Care, founded by Thad Pryor. I have been told that he is under invetsigation for instigating these frauds.
Let me see what I can find out.
Unfortunately, what I'm seeing is that the entire thing is the scam. The stocks they talked you into buying were worthless, and the people who are now contacting you are probably friends of the original scam artists, hoping to take more of your money and leave you with nothing.
That does mean you can file a police report, but unfortunately, these scam artists are very good at what they do, and most people do not get their money back.
I know this too. This means you do not know anything specific that can be of help for me in this case?
I'm sorry - I don't know what you know. I only know what you put in the question, which was very vague.
All you asked is what you can do, and I've told you - you can contact the police. You could sue the scam artists, but you have to find them first, and that's exteremely difficult, since they're usually in Africa.
I believe my specific question was what to do to de-restrict restricted shares. Do you know how this is done? Do you know any authority to use?
They're not really restricted shares. They're nothing - it's a scam. The shares don't exist. So, unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do, because what you have isn't worth the paper it's printed on.
I'm sorry I can't really help you more.
