    I was scammed out of $30,000+ by Golden International Brokers back in April –
    May this. If you want any more details please contact me.

    Lately I have been in conversation and exchanging emails with people in Mexico who say they are representing the legal department of the Mexican government. They tell me that the scammers have been caught and are now in jail and that they have my money from this scam. They seemed to know I was scammed. I can get my money back if my wife to sign an official looking Mexican government form. Also, I would have to send them $1500 to cover court costs to release the funds. I have refused. I have tried to get them to identify themselves as being part of the Mexican government but they are cagey and avoid that. I even sent them a series of questions that would help to remove doubt as to who they were. I finally achieved a phone number in Mexico for them. I don’t know if it is a legitimate phone number. I have advised my resort of the scam and of this latest effort by scammers.

      Many thanks for your comments and sorry to hear about your experiences. You are right to be suspicious of a company asking for upfront fees for this type of service as unfortunately, this could well be a scam, however well the representatives sell themselves to you and however legitimate they sound. Our advice to people would be to NEVER pay money to a company without first checking out its credentials.

      Can I suggest you make contact directly with our enforcement division on rdo@enforcement.org ?
