    I've received about five calls from them now, despite having an unlisted number, being on the ICSTIS do-not-call list, and repeatedly telling them I don't want any more calls. They are incredibly persistent, and I just can't see a genuine company behaving that way. If they call you, just hang up, or if you have time on their hands, you may want to waste as much of their time as possible. Why not ask them for their home address and phone number, since they'll probably have yours.

    JonathonM looks like a sock-puppet to me.

    Hi, I have been using this company for the last 2 years, i am very pleased with the returns i have been seeing ( Around 20% per year) far better than what my stocks & shares have been doing???
    How have you managed to get 2 years of returns out of a scheme that hasnt been running two years?

    Last year the stockmarket grew by over 40%. So, your made up 20% figure looks rather poor compared to that.

    They are unregulated and judging by this thread, quite happy to spam using false pretences and tell lies. Generally, that means you should avoid them like the plague.

    Good idea. As MSE usually appears high up on the google searches, this thread is now an embarrassment to encarta fine wines and shows what they are really like.

    I can't post the link, but if you google "sock puppet", the Wikipedia page explains how the term is used.
