  1. If you know of anybody else masquerading as an investor just post it here. The info will really help others to avoid wasting their time and money on people who can’t help them.

  2. Most investors are probably very genuine people. Sometimes the term “investor” is used very loosely. If you are aware of an “investor” that people should be weary of then let the guys at investorcheck know. It’s the only way of stopping people like this.

  3. a Thai “investor” wanted to invest in my start up. but asked me to pay for an anti-money laundering certificate from the government before he could send me cash. this he claims was required by his country. I investigated and the AML certificate was fake and this was a scam to try to get the $5k!
