    Heron Global Partners acting as broker for Diamond Construction and Renewables 25th Aug 16 at 9:59 AM
    We have been contacted by the above with a view of investing in renewables i.e. wind farms.
    The interest rate they are quoting is very competitive. Has anyone heard of them or had dealings with them?
    Thanks

    This investment is also being sold by Heron Global.
    BEWARE - it looks like another scam.

    Ive think I have lost lots of money investing through Heron Global in DCR mini bond in wind power- Now Heron aren't responding to calls or emails and the DCR people the same-

    Is anyone else in the same boat?
    I'm going out of my mind with worry- Its money I can't afford to lose and I want to take action to get it back-
    I'm trying to find other people in the same boat that I can join forces with to try and get the money back.

    I'm in the same boat- I'm sickened by what has happened- I'm a single mum of 3 dependants and feel so stupid having invested but it all seemed so legit - I can ill afford to lose this money.

    account is void
    I am in complete empathy. I got my bank's scam team to check with Santander about the dcr account to which the money for the mini bond was sent by bank transfer. That account has no funds. You may contact me at wdwvltrm@outlook.com

    There were warning signs. You will now be on a "suckers list" which gets sold to other scammers you need to learn how to spot them. A typical scam will have:
    * A high interest rate or other predicted return
    * Will be from a company you have never heard of before
    * They will cold call you. Never buy anything financial from a cold call, or anything else for that matter but particularly nothing financial as regulated firms are not allowed to cold call.
    * They will have a flashy, professional looking web site. Ignore it. Any crook can rustle one up from a template in no time. If you are tech savvy you could check when it was created and who owns it. Recently made sites and hidden owner details are red flags.
    * Don't be reassured by a UK address or phone number. It's probably just a rental that forwards mail and calls elsewhere, often abroad.
    * Sign up to the Telephone Preference Service. If you have already then you should have realised it is not legal to cold call somebody on the TPS (ignore the response "you ticked a box on a web site". They won't be able to tell you which web site if you ask!)

    Don't get drawn into a conversation. No need to be polite and try to come up with a reason for saying no as they have scripted answers for everything you might say. I just say "I never buy anything from a cold call" and put the phone down before they can answer. That's the polite version, I often give them a piece of my mind first!

    It's been said a couple of times above but beware anybody contacting you to say that can get your money back, it's a typical follow up scam.

    Simply hang up on anyone that cold calls you. Never buy anything from anyone who solicits you.
