Pretium Ventures Scam
Category: Business Opportunities
Pretium Staff Involved: Jonathan Chandler and Philip Carter
1. Pretium convinced me to buy shares in Asian Green Technology, which I did;
2. They kept trying to make me buy more which I initially did;
3. They then tried to get me to top up my account in order to sell my shares, claiming that they can only sell the shares in blocks (e.g. 100,000 shares). I refused;
4. Their final attempt (for which I stupidly fell) was getting me to transfer money as a security bond for the sale through a clearing house;
5. They stopped responding after this.
