    “We offer a service to the Manish’s / Aspinal Chase’s of the world and our IFA’s will sign off the business, provide the advice, deal with the pension and invest a proportion of the fund into the investments these introducers are trying to raise subscriptions on.”

    This is a frank admission that a) Nunn & McCreesh were aware that my pension was being invested in their own fund from first contact by Luke Averill (a director of Blackmore according to his LinkedIn profile) and b) the “adviser”, David Vilka, unauthorised to transfer my pension according to the FCA, was not acting in my best interest because it is clear he was “offering a service to Aspinal Chase” in order to “invest a proportion” into Nunn & McCreesh’s own fund – the other proportion went into Ferguson’s fund – Symphony!

    This could not have stated clearer that this was a deliberate objective by Nunn, McCreesh & Vilka to get my pension for their own enrichment regardless of my best interest!

    Thank you Mr Ferguson. This might just be the lead Action Fraud were looking for and guess what mate – I am going there and also the FCA! You so have handed me a gift on a plate.

      We creep ever closer to bringing these scum to justice. It is hard work, but we will get there. Stephen, you have been one of the most tenacious and determined victims I have ever known – and I genuinely believe you will help bring these criminals to justice.

    Assuming that email is genuine, no doubt the internet providers can confirm, it beggars belief.

    We have IFAs (independent advisers), that apparently have permission to provide advice to UK customers, happy to sign of a promotion to raise funds for unregulated projects. Not independent at all, but complicit.

    FCA asleep at the wheel again.

      FCA was not asleep – it was dead (and still is). I have stood in the (hideous) foyer of the FCA and pretty much done everything except take all my clothes off and sing Puff The Magic Dragon – and still they ignored me. It is pathetic, embarrassing and disgraceful. The email is genuine, btw. And there are plenty more where that came from.

    I am here because I am dealing with my 65 year old father-in-law who received ‘advice’ from Aspinal Chase to transfer his £90k pension to a Maltese QROP (Harbour Retirement Scheme) from where it has been ‘invested’ in Blackmore Global funds which has very high fees, non existent growth, and a lock-in period of 10 years. I have only been looking at this for 2 days but it seems blindingly obvious that these people (Phillip Nunn and Patrick McCreeish) are carrying out nothing short of organised crime!!!! It is very sad and disappointing to hear that it seems they can carry on with no come-back.

    I just got an email today from David Vilka of Square Mile to say that they have sold the company to Planet Pensions Limited.

    This firm is not trading according to Companies House and is not regulated as far as I can see.

    Will Planet Pensions be taking over the liability of the current pensions? Is this a case of frying pan and fire? How can an unregulated firm take over a supposedly regulated firm?

      It remains to be seen whether there is a novation agreement in place – which would mean that Planet would take over the liabilities of Square Mile.
