    Call for Information: TPS Land

    Call for Information: TPS Land 6th Apr 17 at 5:52 PM
    Has anybody any experience of a company called TPS Land? They seem to have dropped off the map over the last few years, but they were ringing in (from Spain I think) to do pension reviews, which usually may have resulted in investments such as store pods and overseas property through SIPPs (Yes, I know...).

    Does anybody know about them or their associated companies?

    First rule of finance. If an offer cold calls you then its not in your interest. End of.

    Hi Ermine. I didn't say I was the one that invested, I'm trying to track down WHO the scammers were, and if they dealt with any regulated parties back in the UK who they introduced to in order to complete transfers. A lot of vulnerable people may have lost a lot of money and I'm part of a larger (none-corporate) group trying to work out how it all happened and whether justice can be served.

    Make more sense now?

    Always makes more sense when you don't drip feed information

    I am also trying to locate them as I was not cold called but introduced by another financial adviser. I invested £118K ( entire pension pot) through them with Storefirst, and in a SIPP using Berkeley Burke SIPP administrator( Leicester) who are regulated Storefirst is now subject to winding up proceedings in the High Court.

    I am trying to take out proceedings against Berkely Burke so any information from anyone else would be helpful and I shall share anything I find out.

    You take action against the financial adviser. Assuming it really was a financial adviser. The SiPP provider rarely carries liability.
    I am an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA). Comments are for discussion purposes only. They are not financial advice. Different people have different needs and what is right for one person may not be for another. If you feel an area discussed may be relevant to you, then please seek advice from a Financial Adviser local to you.
