    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.

    Its unfortunately the first (and hopefully last) time I have been scammed- At first I was gutted, felt so stupid and gullible at being taken in and losing my money I can ill afford to lose- My kids future but I obviously thought I was investing wisely (and also took advice)
    Since meeting other people in the investor group, I realise that they are all clever people, well educated professionals and I now don't feel so bad- The police involvement and that they are taking it all so seriously has also helped.

    Gambler 101- I hope you never find yourself in the situation I now find myself in.

    When you say you took advice do you mean from an FCA-regulated firm? If so, have you made a formal complaint to them, and then made a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service?

    Hello I am an unfortunate investor with DCR and I was introduced to them by AMYMA (brokers). I have tried to contact the person on facebook group but they do not answer the phone. Found this and thought that I might be included. Cheers

    It seems many investors trusted this company. Does this company issued explanation to their valued investors? I think, they owe them explanation from this.
