Right. Thanks for your reply.
The phone number was redacted by the Moderators because private contact is prohibited.
Is it a UK or Spanish number?
It is obviously a bit difficult to be definitive but you should not the following:-
1. There is no website for them that I can see. There was, but it has been taken down. Not a good sign.
2. That they have asked for money straightaway, again, is not a good sign, it is highly irregular in fact. Brokers always send contractual papers and supporting literature to you if they are credible. You do not transfer money without know the contractual implications and a reputable broker/agent would appreciate that fact and proceed accordingly.
Personally, I would cease communication with the company on the basis of 2 above. If you wish to investigate further their offer I would request that full details are forwarded with their standard Agreement and supporting literature. I would also ask them to confirm the legal status of their operation - is it a company, if so provide registration details, or is it a partnership or other. Request full details, if they are a scam they will probably stop bothering you at that point.
