Scams to be aware of

German Property Group (formerly Dolphin)

We have become aware that a number of clients who invested in German Property Group (GPG, formerly Dolphin) have received unsolicited contact from companies purporting to represent the liquidators for GPG and/or Rowanmoor, requesting a payment so that the outstanding balance of the investment can be released to them.

Please be aware that no one from the liquidator or Rowanmoor will be in contact with you asking for any money to be paid out to release your investment amount. Any returns from the investment will only be available once the liquidation has been completed by the German liquidator.

The Resort Group

We have become aware that scammers are contacting those that hold a hotel room in The Resort Group and confirming that they have a buyer in China for that room.  They then ask for an upfront payment of legal fees, taxes etc to sell the room to the buyer in China.

Please be aware that the buyer does not exist and they will encash the monies paid, which can be a large amount.  The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have issued alerts about this scam – collins-financial-trust-solutions.
