    Paragon Investments Ltd.???

    blperform Wayfarer

      Does anyone have an info on Paragon Investments Ltd. from the UK? I've gotten a couple of e-mails from them based on my inquiries on the Bank of America forum and I'm hesitant because they are not here in the states. According to the e-mail, they require no up-front fees and work with the big lenders in the UK to fund throughout the world Iincluding Bank of Scotland and Bank of America). Any thoughts?

       


      Thanks in advance

          I received the same email (twice). I did a search for them but didn't find much except "ads" containing essentially the same verbage as the email.

          They have no web site - that I can find
          They are using free eamil accounts

          I consider these two "warning" signs.

           


          Let me know if you find out anything else

              Thank you for your response. What I did uncover is that all three phone numbers to London came back as disconnected and when I inquired why, the response ignored the phone question. In AOL search, Paragon came up under a scam website, but I could not determine when or get any other info except it has to do with up front fees.

                  Hello,

                  Here's a little I found out legitimate business's in the UK. If They are legitimate they have a registry #. You can check out a business from the UK at UK data .com. If they give a registry # you can also check it out there, which I encourage you to do. One loan company gave me a #, I checked it out there, and it was a # to a phone company that closed in 2005. So be careful!!!!

                      Thanks for the info Warren.

                      It's not like I haven't been doing my homework. The two email addresses that are listed trace back to Google, Inc.in CA and the other one is Redmond, Washington. Unfortunately I do not know enough about IPs to know if this is normal. From what I've been able to decipher, my IP is in Virginia while I am actually in South Carolina. The UK data sites list registry # to a company by the same name altho' the address is different (while by itself might not be unusual). I was not successful in doing a UK reverse phone search. Is there any other type of BBB or Consumer Affairs in London?

                      Thank you for your advice. If you have any ideas, olease let me know. I certainly am going to proceed with MUCH caution and certainly will not give ANY upfront money.
