Hi Fran L, I have not received any information on Xxxxxxx NY that took my money but did not provide a service. I now would like to go through another provider by the name of JS Funds, they say they are registered with greater New York. They have a website JS Funds but I cannot get enough information. I believe they asked to put money of about 3% of the principle amount into an escrow account in New York. I have to transfer the money before they provide the service and if no service is provided I can have my money back. Please let me know if this company is registered in greater New York, do they have an address, is their telephone number registered in New York. Would they be another scam company again. How would I know if they are real, as the internet search did not provide anything more and no reference is provided. Can you advice if its alright to have the money send to an escrow account with a legal firm in US and if no service is provided, will they return the money as promise. Thank you.
Hi, the website is jsfunds.com how do I know if it's registered in USA. The phone number is XXXXX Their consultants are Xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxxxx, xxxxx, Leigh xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx, xxxx, xxxx xxxxxx, xxxxxxx xxxxx. The website did not come into my email. It's an advertised website on google that I click on. They have a partnership with VIA MAT in Switzerland. They have safe vaults in Switzerland, USA and Canada. Is the company a scam. Can escrow account with USA registered attorney be a scam? Please advice. Thank you. Morgan
You say that you have (apparently) lost money with something called Xxxxxxx Now you are considering using this JS Funds for something. What is JS Funds going to do for you? What are they offering to do for you? How much money are you to send them? I do not find anything good, bad or otherwise about JS Fund in the U.S. But that doesn't mean much. Scammers change their names all the time. For all you know, they are the same outfit as Mayfair. How much did you send Mayfair, and what was that for?
I send $29k and they wanted more. Js funds wanted 3 times more or $100k for a three million SBLC which I have to put into an escrow account. They will then proceed to issue the SBLC of $3million to my bank. I have prepared the funds to transfer to them on Monday. Please advice. Thank you.

Hello Again Morgan. Welcome back. Isn't it interesting how they always have a reason why something hasn't happened and you haven't received the money or whatever they promised. Isn't it also interesting that they keep lowering the amount of money you have to send them. Those are two indicators of a scam operation. Keep acting unsure and watch them keep lowering the amount you have to send. They do it until they reach your comfort zone. They'll take anything they can get. If I'm right they'll come all the way down to few thousand. But you're a competent grownup so you do what you think is best for you. I think I deserve at least a positive rating - excellent and $16.50 for trying to save you from losing thousands, don't you?
