Well! We’ve had enough complaints about Rutherford Franklin and were just about to write a report and now it appears they have now become The Dominion Group !
Rutherford Franklin, based in Tokyo (they say) and at rutherfordfranklin.com
and now they are The Dominion Group, still in Tokyo and at thedominiongroup.jp
We’ve had three reports of people investing with Rutherford Franklin where things have gone bad. Either the investment has fallen dramatically , and/or money can not be withdrawn, or communication ceases.
They all report dealing with different agents but perhaps there is more to this point..
We are told that one agent who was Mark Stone with RF in December is now Mark Silver. Could he also be any of the other agents?
Dominion Group claim to not know of Rutherford Franklin yet they call from the same telephone number: +81 669 568 4235
What they do is try to talk you into investing through them in some stock that is about to shoot right up. When it comes to buying stock though, it’s not done by sending money directly to them, it’s through a different company and they’ll ‘credit’ you the shares when they see you have made the transfer.
Guess that adds an extra arm’s length between them and the company ( except that they are actually the same)
One client reports that they told him there had been a merger and that Rutherford Franklin had had to buy compulsory warrants and they sent him the bill (well over 10k) for them.
The address given for The Dominion Group of :
1-5, Kasumigaseki 3-Chome Chiyoda-ku
Tokyo, 100-0013, Japan has been checked on the ground in Japan and apparently does not exist.
Conclusion: run for the hills
