    Oh Dear,

    On the board for them was FINNERAN, Gerard Patrick
    he has been seen with Moat on MANY occasions in Javea
    at the offices of Blu PRoperty Group / Deyse Investments S.L.

    Mr Finneran also runs FIRMUS UNSECURED LOANS LIMITED (08362876)
    where GOODMAN, Laurence Howard was the director, a bit of dubious directorship swapsies
    happening here.

    There are NUMEROUS – Firmus Bridgebank companies in Companies house – ALL LINKED TO
    Finneran and Goodman

    and there’s also this

    With –
    CHAPMAN, Ian Stuart ( A Moat Stooge )
    FULLER, Mark Anthony ( Shock Horror it’s him again )

    Which all bring us back to
    https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/05912973/officers

    The whole thing STINKS like a SCAM !

      Indeed – all starting to look very dubious and conspiratorial. More investigation required evidently.

        Has Goodman returned from his jollies yet? I wonder if he is in Spain?

        Any news from him yet?

    EVERY SINGLE CHARGE ON COMPANIES HOUSE FOR BRIDGEBANK CAPITAL NO 5 IS NOW SHOWN AS SATISFIED AT 16TH AUGUST 2017!!!!!

    SOMETHING POSTIVE HAS HAPPENED??? Has somebody woken up and smelled the coffee??? Is this money safe from the various lowlife if a kind person has paid it?

    On the subject of Bridgebank and the ‘director-swapsies’ this news item from 2013 is of interest:-

      Yes, they have all been switched out. Too busy to speak to me to sort this scam out, but not too busy to switch out 37 loans.

      This could be disturbing too

      a) Paid back to the schemes that the Moats control.

      or

      b) Loan taken over by another lender at short notice now the loans have been rumbled.

      The failure to respond by Goodman is nothing short of appalling behaviour.

        It is certainly not good. I was so hoping that Goodman was a good guy and just horrified that he had somehow got tangled up with the Moats and their scam. But clearly it now looks like he was part of it. There will of course be an audit trail and the loans will turn up somewhere else. Did he really think we wouldn’t notice? The Companies House records will still be there long after the loans were “satisfied” and the evidence that the loans were in favour of Sara Moat and Martin Peacock as trustees of the Fast Pensions schemes. Incidentally, Martin Peacock has not returned my calls or replied to my emails.

    I am yet another person who has a pension with fast pensions. My pension was invested for 5 yrs and this ends early October 2017.
    I emailed Sara moat to ask for this to be transferred out asap after this date. She said this might take a few weeks to do but a final statement would be sent to me early October. The government is due to cap transfer fees to 1% in October 2017 so there should be no huge transfer fees if the term has been reached.

    I don’t understand if this is the case and another pension provider is acting on my behalf that the money can not be transferred from one to the other. If not it is definitely fraud in this case.

    I will fight this to the bitter end if I don’t get this. Everyone of us should and the Government needs to ensure this doesn’t happen ever again.

    I am a bit late in waking up to what is happening at Fast Pensions as i only realised anything was wrong when no statement arrived in August. As i am sure everyone will know i have had zero joy in trying to contact them and so i turned to the internet to see what was happening and was horrified to read everything. Really im here to ask for advice. My scheme is due to finish next year so i have not made any transfer request yet. What should i do next? do i go to the Ombudsman or the Pension Advisory Service? I would be grateful for any guidance you can give me.

      Alan, I’ve only just realised now what is going on with Fast Pensions due to tax bill from HMRC, I need to wait till April this year apparently before I can move it.

    I believe I am a victim of this scam as well as I have not heard from Fast Pensions despite repeated attempts to contact them. Is there any protection for our pensions? How do I complain?

    I have recently applied to transfer my fund of approx, £31k to another provider and keep being given what seem like very lame excuses as to why the process will take up to 5 months after initiating for my funds to be “converted to cash”. These people must simply not be allowed to get away with this fraud on a massive scale. Perhaps all of us members of the schemes they administered could all pool resources to bring a legal action against the Moats?

    I have secured a judgment against Goodman. His companies have ceased trading and in his proposed IVA he is citing a £2 million debt to Moat and Peacock

    Every charge at Companies House for all of Goodman’s customers was suddenly shown as satisfied in one go just like the instant ‘satisaction’ of the Fast Pensions loans.

    If (1) dealing with very dodgy folk (2) lending out innocent peoples’ pension pots to property developers without their knowledge and (2) allowing a co-director to actually borrow some of it himself are indicators of the quality of management, decision making and morality then it can be no surprise that the Bridgebank empire is now ‘belly up.’

    I see Goodman has registered three brand new companies late last year ……………….. isn’t it about time he gave up?

    I am also a victim of fast pensions I was advised to transfer my pension my pension of £35000 I was advised over a year ago I could take out a tax free lump sum and I’m still waiting and Sara moat is not replying to my emails.

    Surely they should not be able to get away with stealing peoples money as that is what they have done
