Hi, I was pointed to this site adjacent to a suposed interview between Martin Lewis and Eamon Holmes. I believe this could be a scam website. I invested £500 and was put in touch with a controller/broker of some kind. All very believable until he asked me to invest £2000. I got suspicious and requested a withdrawl from my account....now holding my breath. Do you know of this website?? am I right?

    Very sorry to say you are right and your money is gone. Martin Lewis NEVER does advertising.

    Especially not with Eamon Holmes!

    OP, how did you give them the £500? Contact your bank/card company and let them know - there's a (slim) chance they might be able to help.

    It is a scam, Martin Lewis does not do endorsements
    I got suspicious and requested a withdrawl from my account....now holding my breath
    Your money is gone, move on and chalk it up to (in) experience

    Investment advice no. If it was tax advice Eamon Holmes might have more to contribute. Money lost to a scam, get onto your bank and fingers crossed.
