    There is a Gold Coast based phoenix company calling themselves TRP Capital who are currently cold calling Australians offering a black box software package. The company details are;

    TRP Capital

    www.trpcapital.com

    Phone: 1800 556 916
    Phone: 1300 556 916

    ACN: 163921515

    This is the newest incarnation of the company who ran the following scams; JBC Global, CFS Live, ESL Trader Stock, Eurosoft, One Wealth, 1Wealth, OWS, GTA, GTA Pacific, Global Tech, GT Australia, GT Alliance, TRP Sydney, TRP Invest, TRP Investment Services Pty Ltd, TRP Financial, et al.

    The newest version is priced at $19,800, plus a $1000+ fee for "Premium Data Services", plus around $10,000 for the second package/license they try to sell you a week later. All up some folks have been taken for over $30,000.

    They are promising 16-17% profit a month on an initial $2000 investment. Victims are provided with a written guarantee in the form of a "Performance Protection Plan" with a full refund offered if a $30,000 profit is not made in the first 12 month trading period. Of course they will have disappeared from the face of the earth by then. Needless to say, the program itself does nothing except pick random stocks. You'd have better luck with a roulette wheel. Users have reported losses from a few hundred to thousands of dollars in bad investments. But still, people are being roped in everyday with little information available online to warn naive investors.

    The authorities have been alerted but action is not currently forthcoming. At this stage, warnings such as this seem to be the most effective weapon against these scammers. Once you've handed over your money, it's a hard, almost impossible, road to recoup your losses. Prevention is the key. Some people have had luck with a Section 82 Cancellation Notice and others have managed to get some of their money back through the Civil and Administrative Tribunal. But of course these crooks are very reluctant to part with the money they've stolen so the best thing to do is spread the word and stop the problem before it starts.

    There's a fuller account of the company's history, modus operandi, victim's testimonies and ideas for what to do next available on Whirlpool;

    How kind of them to offer an iPhone 6 to their victims. Of course you could just go buy an iPhone 6 and save yourself $30,000+

    Hoorayyy!
    Keep exposing them. :1zhelp:

    One down, many more to go.

    Reading the article to the end, it appears that our Authorities are mainly worried about the fraudsters failing to pay taxes on their ill-gotten gains. I hope I'm wrong, and Queensland Police are starting to crack down on boiler rooms and shonkies of all kind...

    Pixel,

    They are gone it seems or under another name.

    Damn, was just going to offer my marketing services.

    Don't By Property, By Shares
    We have received from our Alien brothers, secret black box technology that can predict the outcome of share prices with a guaranteed %16 return every month, yes that is every month. You can buy as many steak knives as you want.

    Double your money every 5 months.

    With just $2000 seed capital you will be a millionaire in just 7 years, that's right 7 years. Property only doubles every 7 years, so who would bother with that.

    But be aware, there are only 9 of these exclusive block boxes available, so hurry, they will not last long.

    Best of all, we guarantee it, that is if you can find us.

    FOOLS ARE EASILY DEPARTED WITH THEIR MONEY. Which begs the question, how did they get the money in the first place if they fall for something so stupid as this.
