Our solution is simple. If a so called investor poses as legitimate, then he has to provide full details and NOT VIA PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS. Any private email address rings alarm bells. Phone numbers in the UK beginning with 0044 7......is usually a fake, as these numbers can be downloaded online and are usually used by scammers. DO NEVER SEND FRONT FEES ,,, NEVER,, GOOD LENDER DO NOT CHARGE FEES UNTIL AFTER THE DEAL IS CLOSED.
