I really respect this scammer on their attitude - Never Give Up. Even I mentioned only have 200USD monthly income, but they still keep asking me to invest 35 times of my paid. They always think we are stupid. Anyway, I added this scam company into our scam list. Please beware of this scammer and pass it on to your friends and family.
Today, I got a call from a guy - Michael Taylor from Taiwan. He is working in this company - Scott Fitzgerald Group Limited . I don’t know where he got my contact from, most probably from Alibaba.com because I only shown my contact there as for my brother’s business.
The objective of calling me is scam me with his share investment plan. There is a Chinese blue chip stock - DVN Energy which listed in NYSE. Recently, they just received an oil and gas production contract worth USD20 billion from China Government. The current share price is USD77.56 but the market still don’t know this insider news yet. Once it announced to public, it will shoot up to USD200++. If I invest with them, The returns will be >100%. This is attractive right? Do you believe it?
I been listening to his bullshit for 30 minutes. Yes, 30 minutes talking about stock. Since I am free and would like to hear how they scam us, then, I share their tactic with the community.
This is the funny part. After 30 minutes of stock bullshit, then he start asking on my background. Firstly, ask how old am I and my occupation? Then I answer 18yo and working as an office boy with USD200 monthly salary. Of course it is fake data. I am short of 8 years old :P. I purposely play with him and he stunned for awhile…….
