    Default Consolidated Trading Partners - the real deal?

    HI all,
    I'm new here, and wondering if anyone has dealt with Consolited Trading Partners? They sell/license a software program, and according to their prospectus have excellent results, but looks too good to be true.
    Any one know of them and whether they are worth going with? It aint cheap so I don't wanna hand over cash
    unless I can rule out a scam.
    Many Thanks

    Amy, if this company had software that consistently made money from financial markets, why don't they just use it themselves and make a fortune? Why do they need to put a high price tag on it and sell it to others?

    My guess is the results in their "prospectus" aren't audited results, which means that they cannot be trusted.

    The company, CTP International Pty Ltd, does not hold an AFSL, nor does its website contain a Product Disclosure Documents (PDS). The domain name was registered in September 2014, which means you are dealing with a business that is about five months old. The company was previously called "A.C.N. 144 883 205 Pty Ltd" and was renamed in late March 2014. Its previous name indicates that it was probably a shelf company before being acquired by the current owners.

    The website does not list the company name or its physical address. The description of its products and services are vague, and no prices are listed. Their website talks a lot about their "innovative staff", "record of achievement" and "ethical standards" but you should take note that no names are listed on the website. So who exactly are you dealing with?

    Does this really sound like a company that you want to hand over your hard earned to?

    Did you follow through with CDP? If so, how is the experience?

    This appears to be a site specifically set up to attract search engines. Allegedly it includes some legitimate articles that convince people the site is legitimate then has a "review" of personal investment software that appears to be just marketing jargon.

    Amy et al,
    Whilst I can't state for a fact that the Consolidated Trading Partners "investment offer" is a scam - I can state that I was scammed by an identical program ~15 years ago. It is my opinion that the CTP scheme is 100% a scam.
    My advice - steer well clear.
