This is a new scam vehicle, created in January 2013. Currently trying to scam Framlington VCT and Downing Income VCT shareholders, amongst others.

I was telephoned today by these people, offering to buy shares at twice the current market price.

Previously I had been approached by Dean Witter Consultancy also of New York also wanting to buy some of my shares.

What I should have included in the above, the shares they are after were Standard Life, with a story about how there was a hostile bid under way and if the shares weren't sold now shareholders would be left with a worthless shell.
Dean Witter Consultants had previously told me that they had a promise of 43% of the shares and needed the other 8% from private investors like me.
Very convincing stuff, but rather spoilt I thought, by offering two to three times the market value for my supposed 89 shares ( I actually have a lot more so their info seems a bit out of date).

I hope this helps someone dodge these crooks
