    Again and again I’ll say it, you are paid by DeVere and Nigel.

    You put in that video that “free pension review”, guaranteed 8%, toxic structured notes, unnecessary insurance bonds etc etc are all part of pension scamming when all of the aforementioned are used by DeVere still today!! I worked for them for many years, I should know.

    But you never attack them. And I’m sure paid plenty to attack their competitors and ex employees like Mike Coady.

    Who’s the real crook, Angie Brooks?

      An interesting question, if all the ‘how to spot a scam’ boxes are ticked why DeVere is not on the list of “known pension scammers” although I can’t see them paying Angie to attack competitors. That is a bizarre concept.

      Their website reads like a scammer’s website but their regulatory status page references their FCA number 469151 and shows they are regulated and permitted to give retail investment advice and advise on personal pensions. There are however a number of companies with ‘DeVere’ in their name that are not authorised but it isn’t clear they have any association with the one listed as 469151.

      It’s an interesting question and throws up a number of questions about their operation. There appear to be anomalies but they also appear to be kosher.

      I don’t know the author of the comment, but if he has any evidence of DeVere engaging in pension scams why not present it rather than make an off the wall comment they are paying Angie?

        @Stephen, more damning DeVere evidence in Angies latest post… (from me of course as she keeps quiet whilst they keep wrecking pensioners savings).

    @ Stephen. Here you go mate… MUCH more of a horror story than the CWM and other stories Angie bothers with…

    Yet another firm that does not own up to their part!

    OK, these are great articles and do show DeVere had a role in Belvedere but the Biznews article couldn’t decide if DeVere were a victim or a partner and does say they tried to get investor’s money back.

    I didn’t get to see Marchant’s 17th March Belvedere article; I bought a months subscription in 2015 and got hold of the May 22 2015 article (because of it’s Brian Weal connection – a director of Blackmore Global that took 75% of my pension). The May 22 article doesn’t mention DeVere (don’t know about the 17th March article) so I am not sure even Marchant believed they were a “willing partner”.

    However, I am not convinced they are paying Angie. That doesn’t make sense to me. Angie, btw hasn’t taken on the Belvedere scammers to my knowledge.

    Imho, Angie is an irritation to companies engaged in scams but from what I have seen to date has not made any significant contribution to their demise such that it would be worth one of them paying her to leave them alone. The scammers I got caught up in are still going (and going from strength to strength if their announcements are to be believed). Angie is not significant enough, imho, for a company like DeVere to be so worried they would think of paying her. Scammers don’t fear Angie, they are just fed up with her.

    btw, Biznews has a great “back story” with a load of links that I will study – thanks for that link.

      Demise is a gradual process I am afraid. You just have to keep at it doggedly and make sure they know you are watching their every move. And reporting on it. Some of the firms and individuals have told me that I have cost them a great deal of money, but none of them has ever offered to pay me off to shut me up. As we know, they throw a lot of money at their lawyers to shut me up – that idiot Steve Kunziewicz at Slater and Gordon being a prime example. He is now with this firm: https://www.blmlaw.com/people/steve-kuncewicz

      Will comment when I have a spare minute – always crazy/hectic when I’m in London.
