Thank you for your prompt answer!Unfortunately, it does not sound good. They only thing which I got always confirmed from Springhill, was the receipt of my payment with in regarding to amount, name and price of shares which they supposedly bought for me. Do you think there is a chance to get back at least the shares which they have promised to buy?
Hi,I understand that it doesn't sound good. And I am sorry about that, but this is the harsh reality of a scam. When you ask whether you can get back the shares they have promised to buy, you are making an assumption that there really are shares, that the shares are genuine, and that they have any value. None of that is likely to be true.You can certainly ask for them inasmuch as you can demonstrate that you paid for them, but if they tell you that you will have to pay more money to get them, don't believe them for a minute. Just report them to the authorities.
18+ years experience in criminal fraud matters
I have contacted them to get evidence that they have bought the share on my behalf.
They have written back as following: If I have any concerns regarding the authenticity of my shares or if I wish to confirm my holdings I should directly contact the legally appointed agent
Addiscombe Holdings Ltd.
Suite 104a, Saffrey Square
Bank Lane, Box N-306
First, is it possible to check if this agent is legally working and registered?
Second, which kind of information, document, certificate should I request from them to be sure that they have bought the promised shares to my behalf?
Thank you very much for your help
Hello Hans,There is not too much I can find out about Addison Holdings because it is off-shore where corporate registration is more loose and where there is no public registry to check out the company. However, it is a fairly new business having only been on the web for about 10 months. See WHOIS It's registration information is private so that you can't tell where it really is. It's website iP number shows Arizona.Apart from that, the only information on the web about them is self-generated. I have also found one scam report involving phony shares but a certificate from Addisoncombe. They claim to be able to do international transactions, but they are not authorized to do so in any major country whose financial firm registries are public and searchable.I'm perfectly satisfied that you've been scammed and the only thing that this business will do is see to it that you can be scammed again by another unregistered and unauthorized firm. I would simply cease contact with SpringHill and their supposed "agent."
