I was also told that it had a 70% success rate. Well, After 5 months I have lost more than £500 so there is no way I will make £5000 in the next 7 months. Not only that but they did not reply to my letters for the last two weeks and this morning I called their office on the two numbers and both were invalid. So they have run off. Probably quite a few people have lost money. The Programme analysis the last Share price of the day each day of nearly 1040 stocks. Yet still it gets it wrong and the top 5 or 6 stocks which should produce a good profit 90% of the time fail and you lose 5%.
Anyone else been scammed by this company please let me know.
do you have a link for your blog, could find nothing on Google??
Is the blog on this site??
Like others I had paid £4950 to HSL and £799 to Value Stock Data. I am working on the basis that this will not be recoverable but happy to take advise from any people with more knowledge than myself. It is the first time I had got involved in any investments, so it is all very regrettable.
We live and hopefully learn.
So it looks like I have also lost £4950........I paid the £495 by credit card so hopefully I can get this back.
How many people spoke with people like Austin in support and William Patterson and Scott Taylor?disgusting people who are sealing peoples hard earned money.
live and learn hey
I will happily give out the address via ddm of their sales office via dm (Obviously it may have changed since then).
When I get time I will post some of the things I heard them tell customers.
They have 8+ salesmen and make many sales a day.
They have two different intercom doors you need to go through as I assume they want to buy time if they are ever raided.
The claims I heard them make are ridiculous but in the context of the very high pressure sales tactics they will fool many
Paid £3k to HSL in October last year. My portfolio hasn't been doing anywhere near what i was expecting....
Now suddenly they've vanished.
Telephone number says incorrect etc..
I'm fumming to say the least.
I've been in contact with the FCA.. and Action Fraud next.
I paid it via bank transfer. Do i got to the bank about it....
You could try - but it's very very unlikely you will get anywhere. Banks do not vet bank transfers, so they won't take responsibility for your actions.
It may be possible to take legal action against HSL (or to take part in a form of class action as a group) but if HSL are any good at the business of scamming, they will have made sure that any remaining company assets are out of reach of the UK legal system.
i would urge anyone who is having the same problem to get in tough via the forum. After investing over £5000 on the software and the data package after six months of very good support it is now non existent -so what on earth is going on?
I need people to come forward so we can try restitution legally if this does not improve !
Please can you get in touch re HSL
