#1 General Comment

According to the FTC

AUTHOR: Concerned Citizen - (USA)

Refund and Recovery Scams

"Under the Telemarketing Sales Rule, it's against the law for someone to request or receive payment from you until seven business days after you have the money or other item in hand."

When an "advocacy" company asks for money BEFORE they recover yours it is ILLEGAL.

Colt Ledger Fraud Real Name - Henry Hill.

AUTHOR: Colt Ledger Fraud - ()

Colt Ledger isn't going to like this.

Colt Ledger Is A Fraud, So They Say!

At the end of the day, we discover a "snake in the grass" one investor says, ready to exploit people when they are encountering times of helplessness and transform them into another scam. The scammed client said, "This snake is Henry "Blue" Hill, and he passes by the name Colt Ledger, J.w. Vickery around others." For the purpose of this report, we will ask you togo and checkout his information.

It seems no matter where you turn, someone is waiting to rip you off.   Our inboxes drown in spam and phishing messages that attempt to discover information or account credentials of colt ledger.  A large percentage of the  social networking content we have researched suggest that colt ledger has designed a system to take away more money from investors that have already sunk hundreds of thousands of dollars and in some cases millions of dollars into legitimet companies. It seems that everywhere we look there is a scam. is a great resource for both investors and business owners who have been affected by the alledged scammer Henry Hill aka Colt Ledger. This is the website on an investigation of the alledged scams of I recently uncovered on,, and other review authority sites that populate throughout the internet.

It gets worse for Colt Ledger debut.
The SEC and FINRA are receiving 10 to 20 reports a month to investigate what really happened in this so called, investigation scam. Are the supposed scams really scams, or are you just paying Colt Ledger aka Henry Hill a fee to libel and slander your investment? Find out why this may turn your investment into turmoil after paying Mr. Hill's fee. According to previous clients and other sources, we were told, "There is no investigation, he simply takes a percentage, trashes the name, and collects fee(s), good scam I guess.  

FINRA chairman Richard Ketchum should be looking at whether or not is really producing positive results or just generating negative news for institutional clients without telling the public at large.

SEC Chair Mary Shapiro needs to make a statement. We've been told from many sources who have done business with Colt Ledger that they think there is a lot of reason to have not have confidence in the Colt Ledger And Associates scam due to the terryfing results that have been collected. One scammed investor says, "but there are issues that we need to look at specifically, his books, his real name, for goodness sakes why does a transparent, truthful investigation company not even use his real name, Henry Hill I said it."

Everyone needs to goto these government sites and find out if they can do anything.,

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Needs to know :This company was just formed to rip off people who made investments. THey charge a huge up front fee and an additional fee when they recover funds. They do not recover any funds. THey make their money on upfront fees and dont do anything. They prey on that have lost money in private placement. They dont bother to check out if the company is good or bad. They are going after people that are hoping to recover money. Report these people to Tenneesee attorney General immediately!!! 1-615-741-3491

Tennessee Attorney Generals Office Backs Colt Ledger

AUTHOR: Colt Ledger & Associates - (United States of America)

Colt Ledger & Associates, Inc. (CLA), have completed its investigation into this post. Based on three factors, the content, the timing and the fact that Jason Hammer was the only CLA staffer assigned to the alleged victims of Synergy Oil, LLC of 328 Old Newport Blvd., Suite B, Newport Beach, California 92633 and 20371 Irvine Ave., Suite 170, Newport Beach, CA 92660, we feel confident that Robert Falco, Tony Pistilli and/or Synergy Attorney, Peter j. Rimel are involved.  However, since the author is anonymous, it is impossible to determine who authored it.

Also of possible interest, is the fact that CLA is currently researching and filing State and Federal Securities Fraud, Criminal Fraud and Elder Financial Fraud complaints against Synergy, Falco, Pistilli and Rimel on behalf of several alleged Synergy victims.

CLA followed the instructions given by the anonymous poster and here is what we found.  The Tennessee Attorney General had never heard of us prior to our call. Second, based on the information provided in the post the AG redirected us to Consumer Protection who provided us with the following:

To: 'Colt Ledger'
Subject: RE: 2 Unknown Financial Complaints

I left a voice mail message earlier with your office, and just wanted to respond briefly by email. Actually, our office had two matters sent to it last year, one was informational only and did not result in a complaint, and the other we referred to the state Private Investigators regulatory board since it fell within their jurisdiction, so we did not actually work that complaint either. So both matters were closed as  based on the above. If you would like to discuss this with me, or have any questions dont hesitate to call me at the number below.  Thank you.

The AG's office states clearly that: "our office had two matters sent to it last year", that is 2011.

One was "informational" and not a complaint and the other went to the PI Board. Please check, Colt Ledger & Associates, Inc., is in good standing with the Tennessee SOS and the PI Board>

#4 UPDATE Employee

Show yourself

AUTHOR: Jw - (United States of America)

This Is JW Vickery Vice President of Colt Ledger. I have been here since Day 1 and I know this company inside and out. If we are in the buisness to rip people off then why have we recovered money? Why do we even bother to put cases together?

I think the funny part is that either an ex-employee or an oil company thats posting this cant show themselves. They leave everything anonymous.  Here I am im not afraid because I have nothing to hide. How long do scam companies stay in buisness before tucking their tails and running? Im still here with the same phone number fighing you everyday.

I love what we do and get a kick out of these post. I tell you what when your in prison and can no longer post this about us ill come visit you to see what you have to say then. The sad thing is my clients actually believe this crap. Listen if you do not trust me do not hire me you will cause me more problems in the end because you expect a miracle and want us to recover your money in a month. I do not quit on any case and will not quit until i get results. That is the only way I know how to operate.

Call the Attorney Genral in TN. The story behind this is that John burness Pinned Patricia Hill (Henry Hill aka Colt Ledgers wife) at the tompkinsville post office. We then move Our P.O. Box to Moss TN which by the way is 10 miles from tompkinsville. The only reason we done this is to keep people like John showing up and harrassing our employees. It was for protection only. We get death threats almost on a daily basis. Clients what would you have done? So obviously no knowing this before hand; TN 2 years Later decides that if we want to do this that we will need a P.I license in TN. They then tried to give us a C&D. However we let them know the situation and was required to pay a fine and get a TN license.

We never practiced in TN and was unaware that this would occur or we would already have the License. Like I tell my clients on the phone I have nothing to hide; but obviously your not a client because you will not contact us about these concerns and will not tell us know who you are. And of course now every oil company is filing complaints against us.

LOL we have not broken the law we have been investigated by several state police and they all tell us that we are practicing inside the law. I think this is why all these oil companies and their attorneys get upset; they know they can not stop us, they know that can not shut us down, they know they cant beat us, and they know that we are very very good at what we do. So the only thing they know to do is post negative things on the internet about us to scare off future clients.
