Advance FEE SCAM- Tom McKenzie back at it - formerly of Gateway Business Force - after I shut him down he is now going by Nexxus Business Alliance
Check this: same people, just names that change. one time ernie or mac mott, another time to mckenzie with his daughter who calls herself louise busch and sometimes michalea barrett.
Tom Mckenzie is the personality behind a group of websites mainly with addresses in Ontario Canada. He claims to have access to capital to fund projects and charges upfront fees claiming to undertake due diligence.
There is no evidence or testimonials to prove that anyone has ever received funds.
The websites have common factors that make the whole picture very suspicious originally the name was Prospexx Integrated Capital www.prospexx.com and www.prospexx-i-c.com however those two websites along with Barrett Capital Exchange have had many disgruntled clients complaining on the internet.
The website has been replicated with a name change and now appears under the name of Canada Capital www.canada-capital.ca so rather than proving it is a reputable company it has just changed its web name and making the same unsubstantiated claims.
Tom Mckenzie is the common thread within this suite of websites that seems to make false statements. These web sites have identical addresses and contact details and 4025 Dorchester Rd. Suite 305 Niagara Falls, ON, Canada L2E 7K8 is the same address used by www.peregrinefundingpartners.com and www.trideca-advisors.com there are generic similarities to these and other sites.
The address 150 Battery Street, Fort Erie Ontario Canada is used by Prospexx Integrated Capital. Number Contact 905.481.2329 this number is common to Prospexx Integrated Capital, Barrett Capital Exchange and now Peregrine funding Partners and Canada Capital Resources.
Trideca Advisors is a website that has only recently become live but makes identical claims to previous sites. It also has an address listed in the USA Suite 331, 266 Elmwood Av Buffalo, New York, USA.14222 and Toms direct line is listed on the contact details. An almost direct replication of this site is also at domain name
www.trideca-dealer-group.com. The information desk number is the same 905 991-8841.as Trideca Advisors and the address 2-504 Steele Street Suite 156 Port Colborne, Ontario L3K 6A7 Canada is common to www.canada-capital.ca, www.barrettcapital.ca, and www.trideca-dealer-group.com
All these sites make similar claims by what seems to be Tom Mckenzie that after charging upfront fees he has access to funding this is not supported by any proof.
He has posted some limited explanations to clients on the internet that seems to indicate that his clients agreed to paying him fees for trying to achieve funding but there is no proof he ever has.
This is the major problem with the claims on these websites and it is Mr Thomas Mckenzie that has to prove he has or can fund anything or the negative conclusions on the Internet must be assumed to be correct.
Is it a simple misrepresentation charging fees claiming the ability to access funds when there is no evidence to support that claim.
Is this a classic example of abuse on the internet to charge fees while making claims that can never be fulfilled? Or is it just a scam?

http://www.autodealerpeople.com/profile/LouiseBusch wow seems very identical to link above huh ??? even their birthdays match !!
I am working with a man allegedly called Ernest Mac Mott and his daughter Mac Louise, of Gateway Business Force. After matching up posts and related addresses, which are not the exactly the same, I have a feeling they are running their scam under a new name.
http://www.tom-mckenzie.com/Contact%20Us.html familiar name and story
http://jobvertise.com/jobs/Loan_Broker_jobs_in_Seattle_WA.html a google search of the phone number produces these results... mac mott and gateway business force
I thought I included these two sites on my previous email but I didn't.. but these two are the icing on the cake. 100% conclusively ties in tom mckenzie and mac mott with absolutely no uncertainty.
Please Tom or Mac however you go by these days
When developing your own press releases you might want to be more original. I was tipped about this from my Canadian source.
Bromot Capital Consulting is again Tom Mckenzie and a simple google of this business name explains more of the same.
Proceed with Caution..Mac or Tom what ever he goes by knows who I am. I encourage anyone who seeks information about gateway business force please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have pending investigations with several entities. Anyone can post a press release on those sites. It does not make them legit. I have documented all emails.
CLASH put it together, dig deeper and you will come to same conclusion I have. Google everything, match up similarties, phone numbers, everything. I have several emails from prior victims ... well Mac calls them liars. Anyone dealing with Brian the broker in the USA he knows very well what is going on.
PROCEED AT YOUR OWN PERIL
Make sure you register and submit a claim. Do not just reply to info email. REGISTER and get a claim number.
If you are a victim report them.
http://www.free-press-release.com/news-gateway-business-force-to-provide-funding-for-32-hotel-franchises-1291750635.html NO LONGER A WORKING WEBPAGE I WONDER WHY -- Gateway is using old press releases from his other illegal websites and frauduant businesses.
Do not worry Mac, that page was saved to my computer, and the people in power who need to know already viewed the page.
PEOPLE IF YOU SENT MONEY -- YOU WILL RECEIVE NO FUNDING AND NO REFUND...
If you are a victim in the USA file a report with your local police department. FILE a fruad calim with the SEC. Be very specific --- include emails - receipts -- BROKER's name -- EVERYTHING
DO NOT LET MAC INTIMIDATE YOU OR LET DISHONEST BROKERS CONVINCE YOU OTHERWISE.
they will call you a liar, threaten to ruin your reputation then just plain ignore you. You can not ruin the reputation of a victim, with every email and evidence to back up their claim against you.
ASK FOR A BUSINESS LICENSE -- ASK TO PROVE THEIR IDENTITY.
THey want to charge you 10K Plus to prove you are not a crook, ask to verify them !!! HE cant, HE wont !! Ask to see verification of funds.
No record of Gateway Business force in any Canadian government website. A company formed in 1991 would have record with Canadian BBB, information about them that goes further back than 12/01/10.
If you already sent money to them---dont hold your breath to receive your funds.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN ONE ARTICLE BE REPLICATED UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES !!!
Related to previous post. Tom Mckenzie sure thinks a lot like Ernie Mac Mott !!!
HMMM.. SIMILAR LANGUAGE AGAIN.
BROMOT CAPITAL NO LONGER EXISTS .. IT WAS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR FRADULANT ACTIVITIES
