    I consolidated my private pensions into Fast Pensions around 2012-2013, through a financial adviser. I learned this year that there is a problem. I too have received emails from Mr Porter enclosing an up to date statement on plain white paper!!! Yes I do believe I’ve been scammed but any help out there would be appreciated. I have lodged a report with Action Fraud, still waiting for feedback.

      Have you received a tax demand yet? HMRC have just started sending them out. James Porter is actually Peter Moat – and although he was being relatively communicative a few weeks back, he is now back in hiding and in silence. Who was the adviser who introduced you to Fast Pensions?

        Blu Funding introduced me to Fast Pensions, we have since found out they are both owned by the same person. HMRC sent a tax demand and we had to prove we had not had any money for cashing in pensions which I never did, I transferred and consolidated them into one.

        Fast Pensions stated when asked by an independent financial advisor that they had absolutely no connection with Blu. They lie.

        I have full details of Peter and Sara Moat as my wife is very good at fining these things out.

          As far as I know, Moat is trying to flog workplace pensions at the moment. He and Sara live in Javea, Alicante, and owe money all round town apparently.

        The person who set this up was a very personable​ gentleman called
        Paul Barry from The Capital Consultancy, Number One Grampian Court, Livingstone, EH54 6QF.
        Mobile number: 07796 304477, email: paul@capital-consultancy.com.

        What is it they say about a wolf in sheep’s clothing!!!

        Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I’m losing it the region of £75,000-£80,000.

    Hi I received a Tax Demand from HMRC and am trying to fight it. I emailed James Porter regarding my request for Transfer (which has been ongoing for 2 years now) and referred him to the Pension Ombudsman decision in November 2016 to award me compensation of £1,000 for maladministration and carry out my request for transfer. He came back to me on 30th May to say I would receive the compensation payment no later than 30th June. We will see!!! But I also replied to him that I wished my pension transfer to proceed, despite the penalty for leaving the scheme early. He replied on 1st June to say he was on a Course for 2 days but would respond to me on Monday 5th June – still waiting

    I transferred my pension in 2012, about £50k. I have not received a statement this year so contacted them, James Porter replied with apologies and assured me that I would receive it in the next 5 days, 10 days later and nothing has arrived. I tried to email him this morning and it bounced back saying that it was un-deliverable!
    I’ve tried every number I can find and they are all not in service.
    Can anyone shed any light on how to get in touch with them as I simply am not prepared to right off my pension?
    I too have lodged a report with Action Fraud.

    I am in pretty much the same position as all of the above, except that I haven’t reported this to Action Fraud..yet.
    If this is indeed a total scam, as it is beginning to appear to be, do we have any comeback at all ?. Does it mean going to court ? Going by the track record of the persons involved, would it be worth the bother?

      I am so sorry to hear that you are a victim of this scam. We don’t yet know how much Moat has scammed people out of but we are doing some digging. Will keep you posted.

        No, they are not regulated at all and Moat isn’t qualified.

    Thanks.
    Incidentally, I have been in e-mail contact with James Porter and as a previous post mentioned, his e-mail address no longer exists. I’ve just noticed that the Fast Pensions website has also disappeared.

      Looks like Moat has done a runner then. Probably time to get the police involved.

    We have been trying to contact Fast Pensions for months, we eventually got James Porter (aka Peter Moat) on 5.6.17 who said he would send relevant paperwork to resolve, to date nothing and all their emails and phone lines are dead. The website is inactive and anyone connected with the business uncontactable. Connected businesses are Blu, Umbrella etc.

    I had an email from james on the 13th as I had a tax demand from HMRC. I asked for evidence of the amounts I transferred across from Aeagon and Capita so I could show HMRC my starting balance. My transfer was done through a marketing company called sign post marketing who don’t exsist anymore either and they gave me a thank you payment of £3200, I explained this to HMRC and they said I would probably have to pay them £1200 for an unauthorised payment . He said he would have this to me in 5 days.. pretty much safe to say that we have all been scammed and even going to court we will probably never see our investments again. 16 years of investment gone just like that.

      Do you have any proof that your pension is gone? I have received my annual statement and it looks like it is doing OK, not pulling up trees or anything. With regard to HMRC, if this Sign Post marketing are not a linked company to Fast Pensions I can not see how you have a tax liability, could you explain further

    Where have the latest posts from James Porter and Pension Life vanished to. ?
    He had posted an alternative e-mail address which I’m sure we would all like to give a try.

    Hello i to invested my pension with Fast Pensions some 5 years ago. I have been trying to transfer out for some 18 months. I have also recently been contacted by the police in Cheshire but they are not saying much at this time. I do receive polite emails from James Porter but my transfer out seems to be going no were. I think an action group would be a good idea.
