Our company was approached by Halton Investments, which asked for our bona fides and relevant documents, such as a business plan, current financials, etc.  Our responding was based on their website, which indicated they had done many multi-million dollar deals with legitimate companies. We sent the docs.  They took a few days to "review" and then sent a long-form application, which we were instructed to fill in.  As the spelling, grammar and syntax of the accompanying email was less than professional, we did some research... and actually called one of the companies, Insalada, they listed as being under Halton Investment Company.  The VP of Insalada said we were not the first to call; that his attys were looking into shutting these scam artists down.  We also called the phone number given, which is a London phone, but it doesn't even ring through.  We also phoned the "company attys" they listed in Dubai: an Arabic-speaking couple answered, and had no idea what we meant by calling them.  NOT A LAW FIRM.

Here is the Halton email of Oct. 29, 2013:

We responded to this email, asking them to please explain

We replied to the Halton email, asking them to explain why their website was nearly identical to that of Insalada.  WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY REPLY.  Meanwhile, my email is constantly being bombarded with all kinds of "instant Loan" offers.  Seems this was a fishing expedition, or phishing... as I replied to Halton, and they probably sold my email.
