I am a Europe resident. A company that claims to provide specialist tax solutions and claims to operate in Boston MA, contacted me by phone and offered to buy the shares I possess from a company, in favour of their client.
The company sent me a fax with their phone, fax, address and website information.
The shares they are willing to buy pertain to a PLC company in England and they are not listed on any stock exchange.
After several phone conversations they said that there are some "restrictions" on my shares and I have to pay a fee to "un-restrict" the shares, in order to complete the transaction and after the byer will refund this fee along with the payment for the shares.
They will send me some contract to sign and then I must send the fee to some off-shore escrow company and then wait to be paid .
How can I verify the legitimacy of the Byuer and of the escrow company?
Much Obliged for any help.
