Colt Ledger SCAMMED ME!!!
Once again, we find a "snake in the grass" willing to take advantage of individuals when they are experiencing times of vulnerability and turn them into his own selfish gain. This snake is Henry "Blue" Hill, and he goes by the alias Colt Ledger
and J.W. Vickery among others. For the sake of this report, however, we'll just refer to him as "Mr. Hill" to keep things less confusing.
I am a retiree of the airline industry and a Vietnam veteran. I have spent the majority of my golden years trying to make smart investments with what little money I've managed to save over the years so that my kids and grandchildren wouldn't have to endure the financial hardships that I had to face growing up. However, Mr. Hill (or Colt Ledger
or "Blue" or whatever he calls himself) changed all of that.
As most of you know, the market isn't the prosperous vehicle it once was for people wanting to make their money work for them. When it took a turn for the worse, so did my financial situation. I was feeling the squeeze of financial pressure and was looking to recoup some money that I had tied up in some of my investments. One such investment was a private placement that I had participated in that hadn't yet shown the returns I was expecting. Unfortunately, either through skeptisism or through desperation, I considered the services of supposed private investigator (and subsequent con artist) Henry "Blue" Hill. As they say, "hindsight is 20/20."
As if he were running for public office, Mr. Hill proceeded to convince me through fabricated promises, invented assurances, and artificial concern that I had a "just cause worth fighting for" against the holders of the private placement program in which I was involved. Turns out, the only cause he was willing to fight for was the one that fattened up his own pockets.
After adequately expoiting my fears and concerns about this particular investment, Mr. Hill then proceeded to use this opportunity to justify the huge cost I would have to bear to retain his services. Looking back, I should have been smarter.
Over the next couple of weeks, I sold this and liquidated that to scrape together everything I could to pay Mr. Hill for taking my case. At the time, I figured his services were going to be a good investment because, in his words, he "wasn't going to stop until he got every last penny" of mine back from the private placement investment I had made.
Not only did Mr. Hill not recoup any of my money, he didn't even try. To this day, all he did was send that company a simple letter stating that I wanted my money back. That was it. Turns out, there was never even any wrong-doing concerning the private placement program, and it's the only investment I have left that is still showing me decent returns.
Of course, I could be in a much better financial situation today if I hadn't let Mr. Hill con me out of all of that money. I'm currently building a class-action lawsuit against Mr. Hill and am having his Colt Ledger & Associates purported business investigated for exactly the same thing that he claims to protect against--investment fraud. Through research of my own, I have found that Mr. Hill actually used to work for (if not still working for) the same type of entities that he claims to protect individuals against, and it wasn't that long ago. It's my suspicion that he is still working with these organizations and is "playing both sides of the fence" to receive compensation on both ends.
Obviously, when he's not busy forming aliases, Mr. Hill is hard at work forming a perception that he is actually a legitimate business man by forming "paper" companies that are merely nothing more than a webpage. Why else would he avoid the Better Business Bureau (BBB)? A business like his would surely benefit from participation with the BBB, since becoming a member would show a support for and willingness to engage in ethical business practices. Right? Doubtedly. These hollow entities are referred to as "Smythe & Wesson
" and "Colt Ledger & Associates," but make no mistake, there are no associates. Try looking for a physical address, fax number, or phone number for these so-called businesses and all you'll find is a PO Box, an online questionnaire, and a myriad of VOIP numbers that ring a single cell phone, undoubtedly in Tomkinsville, KY.
