Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Simply stated, we were trying to fund a landfill real estate deal, Paul Soni in Ontario, Canada was recommended to us, who introduced us to Rob Anderson and Elijah James Holmes.  Global Solutions, Hazel Investments.  These men, in their entire time speaking with us, only ever emphasized "due Dilligence fees", Upfront fees, fees for this and that, they were even willing to take partial payment, until the deal signed...

Okay, we needed a lot of money, they did not Wish to loan us any, but find investors who would Joint Venture with us, or Invest with us, take half of the desired loan, and place it on a trading platform to generate 10 times what we requested in one year...

If this did not send alarms ringing, every one  knows bank schemes often included trading platforms, which do not work, and Certified Deposits etc...

These guys wasted our time constantly with phone calls and trips to the city to do us a favour, for free, but the whole time asked to prepare documents to Prove we are real...when we did so, they asked us to prepare a joint ventue agreement and they would waive the fees, or find someone for part of the action, to pay the fees for us...we even agreed to that knowing full well what would happen...once again as previously reported from other rip-off reports, odd how everyone came to the table to finalize the committment letter, only to discover that the backers dropped out...WE would have to come up with the upfront fees ourselves for "due Diligence to be performed"  Even though we did all the due diligence for reports, appraisals, etc...

The point to all of this is, they get your hopes up, only to screw you out of admin and upfront our case, we were not stupid, they wanted 43,500 in fees...if we had paid them, forwarded them to a bank in New York...we would never have seen our money again and these guys would have disappeared...

After reading a similar report on this site, I had to add my two cents worth.  We even offerred to put the money in trust with a lawyer, but they did not had to be sent to their bank...of course it would be fully refunded as soon as the deal was done, and/or even if the deal was not completed...the point being of course, that they really did not care about the fees at all, it was to prove we were serious...right, as if we were not serious...we had all the documentation, all the due diligence, the land in question, the credentials aof all parties involved...

I strongly recommend you do not do business of any kind with this confidence men...they will fly and meet you, of course they will...they contact other brokers and get them to recommend them to aother people in need of money...then they set up operations in the city and deal with several businesses until they get what they want ...your upfront fees...then they disappear. 

As of today we are not dealing with them.  They are however dealing with TransAmerica Group in Edmonton, trying to get them for a feww hundred thousand...they are messing up legitimate deals in order to scam some admin money from other companies involved in real estate deals throughout the city....

Enough said.  Stay away.
