    Dcr mini bond scam

    Dcr mini bond scam 9th Jun 17 at 4:48 PM
    Has anyone else been involved in Diamond Construction and renewables or Heron Global Partners?
    We are trying to contact anyone who may have invested in the £3million mini bond offered by Diamond Construction and Renewables Ltd, run by Dr.Paul Dougan and Liam Ward. Sadly Dougan and Ward have so far failed to implement the promises they made to investors in the Mini Bond prospectus when it launched in Spring 2016. Ward has a track record of issuing misleading statements. On 2.11.2015 he was fined £2500 by the Architects Registration Board for misusing the title 'architect' in breach of the Architects Act 1997. Investors must now face up to the possibility that the project may be a scam, and it is my hope that by acting together we may be able either to hold these men to their promises or to get some if not all of our money back. If you are such an investor, or if you have invested in any company run by these two men, please join our Facebook Group ' Scottish Wind farm Scam' or leave a message for us to contact you.

    We are an action group- growing daily in numbers with people who have also been scammed by this investment - Please come and make contact with us.

    Hi,
    Please add me to your group as I too have succumbed to what now appears a dreadful scam! Just spoken with Liam Ward of DCR and he is advising me to send more money to LCAS (London Commodity Arbitration Service) in order to recieve the funds in my mini bond returned! Has anyone else been offered this same "loophole" service? I smell a rat.
    This has come out of the blue - in the past few days I received an initial phone call from Liam Ward advising of the impending liquidation of DCR.
    I have considerable sums invested in DCR and feel extremely upset over the misleading information in the prospectus.
    Has anyone reported this to Action Fraud?
    I am grateful that someone has started an investors action group, Thank you.

    Money has gone guys I would say, hope im wrong but I doubt it.

    Whatever you do dont fall for secondary scams with promises to recover your money for an upfront fee etc
    The instructions on the box said 'Requires Windows 7 or better'. So I installed LINUX

    It is not the real Liam Ward phoning or emailing you lot. It is a scammer. The email is a different one to the real Liam Ward. Beware.
