I have lost funds due to an international investment firm.

Customer Question
I have lost funds...

I have lost funds due to an international investment firm. Known as Olson Capital. Could I speak to someone re details, procedures etc

Lawyer's Assistant: The Fraud Examiner will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Fraud Examiner can help you best.

To tell you all would be impossible this way. I have all details re wire transfers to Bank Accounts, their website details and emails. I have invested AU$ 63000.00.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Fraud Examiner should know?

Yes a lot but, not suitable this way as so much info. I think that should be enough to be able to speak to someone.

Good Morning

I am happy to discuss the issues with you.

With them being overseas, the Australian courts will not be able to assist you as they do not have jurisdiction to enforce any orders they make here.

You have obviously been scammed and by this firm.

Do you know where they are located?

I have been scammed enough with paying out money before any information. If you are genuine you will phone me without cost and be able to convince me that you are Bona Fide. Obviously anyone would be willing to pay if you are genuine.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
A phone call will use a lot of $85.00. I want know who you are and can discern this to a degree.
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 23 days ago

Good Morning

You should report this to Scamwatch and also to Interpol.

https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/

https://www.interpol.int/Member-countries/Europe/Bulgaria

I do not hold too much hope that you will get your money back.

The phone number they have given you is a UK based number and you can also see if the UK Fraud division of Scotland yard can track them down.

http://fraudaid.com/How-To-Deal-With-Having-Been-Conned/Fraud_Report/Jurisdictions/International/ScotlandYard.htm

This is the best you can do

The Australian Police and courts are restricted to Australia.

But making reports to the above of the Bulgarian Police through Interpol can track them down or Scotland Yard can seize the account you may get something back.

Put together details of all the transactions and emails you have when you report them.

I completely understand your position and being skeptical about online assistance. But IO am a solicitor based in sydney.

I hope this has assisted you with your question today.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

My father past away in December 2016. When he passed away he had a compensation claim going through Shine Lawyers for a DePuy Hip Class Action. At the time of dads death his full estate transferred to my mother and there was no need for Probate, in February 2017 Shine sent mum a letter of offer for her to accept a fixed amount from the claim for which she accepted signed and sent back. In June 2017 my mother passed away. In her will everything was left to my sister and myself with just some trinkets left to each of the grandchildren. At the time my sister and myself didn't go through probate to obtain her funds from the bank as we obtained a Probate Bond and this was accepted by the bank and funds released. Now i have follow up Shine Lawyers for the compensation agreed payment has still not been finalised and they now tell me that i must have probate for dads estate in order for them to release the payment once they have finalised the liens. They are happy to do the probate of course for a fee but have instructed that a probate bond will not be acceptable. is this correct as a probate bond take considerable less time than normal probate not to mention it is cheaper. … read more
