Windsor Heath Capital scam

Windor Heath Capital are a scam.

They call up in Australian business hours and say they’re calling from London where it would be the wee hours.

They say they’re expanding their client base in Australia, hence they get the graveyard shift.

We’ve heard this several times in the last year from various companies.

Options in the petroleum market is what they are advising to buy.

From there it gets fishy as you’d be purchasing the options through them, not a broker.

Once you send them the money, you’d have no recourse to get your money back.

Asked about who they are regulated with ( since we couldn’t find them registered with the FCA,

Financial Conduct Authority in the UK , https://www.fca.org.uk ) they said they were regulated

with UKIFMA.

United Kingdom Investment and Financial Market Authority , or UKIFMA, is also a scam

Their website ukifma.com is not even a .gov.uk or .org.uk domain and a very ‘thin’ site.

Of course, you’ll find Windsor Heath Capital registered with them…

We checked with the FCA about whether Windsor Heath Capital were registered with them and

they confirmed NO.

They also confirmed that the FCA is the only regulator of financial firms in the UK and UKIFMA is

not a regulator or registrar, in fact they have never heard of UKIFMA

There seems to be an endless stream of companies with fancy sounding names like

Windsor Heath Capital, Rutherford Franklin, J W Capital, Charles Frederick Morgan, Larsson York.

If you get a call from any company like that, out of the blue, saying they are from London,

Tokyo, Singapore etc, and they have words like ‘Capital’ or ‘Global’ in their name,

Watch out!
