PETER MOAT AND SARA MOAT – FAST PENSIONS

See how fast your pension can disappear?

There is growing concern about Peter Moat and Sara Moat of Fast Pensions.  There have been a number of Pensions Ombudsman’s determinations which expressed concerns about the maladministration of the unlicensed firm owned/run by the Moats.

One of these was reported by FT Adviser on 10th May 2017:

Fast Pensions told to pay £79k death benefit

The article stated the Pensions Ombudsman had told Fast Pensions it must pay out a death benefit to the widow of a former client after the company was accused of purposely delaying payments and quoted the Ombudsman as saying: “We have dealt with a number of other cases recently involving Fast Pensions, where there have been continued failures to respond to requests.”
The Ombudsman went on to cite delays and maladministration on the part of Fast Pensions which caused much distress and inconvenience to the complainant.  Apparently, Fast Pensions has failed to comment and Karen Johnston, Deputy Pensions Ombudsman, has said: “We have dealt with a number of other cases recently involving Fast Pensions, where there have been continued failures to respond to requests and payment/transfer applications. Fast Pensions has also failed to communicate effectively with this office.”
A number of very distressed and worried members of the Fast Pensions scheme have contacted me and asked me to help them find out why they can’t transfer their pensions out (as is their statutory right).  I filled in the contact form on the Fast Pensions website (there was no address, email or contact number on the site) and was contacted by James Porter. He told me that after some administrative problems in 2016, he had been appointed in January 2017 to look after the pension queries for Fast Pensions.
He also said he was dealing with all the members and the Ombudsman.  However, the members have claimed Porter takes days to respond and that Fast Pensions have failed to pay compensation they were awarded and to facilitate transfers out.
CONTACT DETAILS
Porter’s email address is james.porter@fastpensions.co.uk and Fast Pensions have just changed their postal address from PO Box 4385 08121954: Companies House Default Address Cardiff CF14 8LH to Crown House 27 Old Gloucester Street London WC1N 3AX on 18 May 2017.  This is a virtual office with thousands of companies registered there and nowhere near where Porter appears to be based in Manchester or where Moat is based in Javea, Alicante, Spain.  There is nothing wrong with using a virtual address – I use a UK one myself as I am resident in Spain. But then I don’t run a pension scheme and the members suspect – perfectly understandably – there has been a deliberate attempt to make it difficult to contact anyone at Fast Pensions.
When we spoke a week or so ago, Porter – a very personable gentleman – assured me he was dealing with everything assiduously and that there would soon be a contact number and address so that worried members could contact the company.  He told me there were about 400 members in total and he reassured me that the assets of the schemes were unregulated long-term loans held within bonds.  What I relief!  He said he would be sending out a newsletter to update all those who are so anxious to know whether their pensions are safe and are desperate for news as to when they can transfer out.  Unsurprisingly, nobody has any confidence in the custodianship of their pensions.
There are a few worrying things about Fast Pensions – apart from the various Ombudsman’s determinations, the numerous worried members and reports of liberation and tax demands – and that is that Sara Moat resigned as a director on 17.3.17 and then a Sara Grace Moat (with the same date of birth) was appointed as a director on 6.4.17. Sara, or Sara Grace, is also director of Fast Enrolment of Gilbert Wakefield House Bewsey Street Warrington WA2 7JQ.
Would you buy a second-hand house from the Moats?

Peter Daniel Moat and Sara Grace Moat have been involved in a string of businesses called Blu somethingsomething… Blu Debt, Blu Property, Blu Property GroupBlu Financial Services of Cinnamon House, Cinnamon Park, Crab Lane, Fearnhead, Warrington WA2 0XP etc.  As director of Blu Debt, Peter Moat introduced one victim to Stephen Ward’s Ark pension scam – and charged him £500 for “advice”.

The Moats also have a business in Javea called DEYSE INVESTMENTS SL  plus Blu Holding Group, Desinplot, Desysins, Deysecomunic, Deyserents, El Arenal de Deyse, Property Exchange.  I feel exhausted just thinking about running so many businesses and think I can understand why Fast Pensions has not received the attention it deserves when the Moats have so many other ventures – all based in Javea, Spain.  The address for some of these businesses is Avenida la Llibertat 31, Javea 03730, Alicante.  But who knows – it could equally be somewhere in Moraira at Stephen Ward’s office, or at LettersRUs next to Barclays Bank.
I have asked James Porter who the trustees are and for a complete schedule of the scheme assets.  Many of the members suspect that Mr. Porter is actually Peter Moat.  If this is true, then it is hard to understand why he would hide behind his pregnant wife.  When their baby is born – and I do of course wish them well – I hope they will be more decisive about names than Sara Moat is with her directorships on Companies House.
Meanwhile, there are 400 people worried sick about their pensions.  And I am concerned that the track record which is in the public domain in both the UK and Spain does not inspire confidence – neither does the Moats’ inability to spell the word “blue”.  Further, the fact that the underlying assets of the scheme are unregulated loans and that the trustees are an unknown entity.
Nice as James Porter was when we spoke by phone, and sincere/reassuring as he sounded, I am afraid this has undeniably got all the hallmarks of a typical, bog standard scam.  It looks, sounds, feels, smells like a scam.  The victims are not stupid.  Neither is the Pensions Ombudsman.  The jury is out on the Pensions Regulator.  I still wish and hope that it is not a scam and that the victims will be able to safely transfer out their pensions and receive their awarded compensation without further delay.

    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.

    1. 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?

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

      2. Maria McCulloch

        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.

        1. Paul Barry was also a Director of ‘ Blu Tax Limited’, along with a David Morgan, and a certain Ian Stuart Chapman (Umbrella Loans), do you see the pattern……. Blu being the obvious link to the Moats……

  2. Andrew wharton

    Hi I transfers my pension in 2013 about £35k and have had regular yearly updates and then I had a tax demand just now and now all their numbers don’t exist , what is the next step ?

  3. 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

  4. 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.

      1. Omg my husband died he put 40k in to there pension I think I have found where they live they will not get away with this how can they live with there self

  5. 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?

    1. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    1. 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

      1. Hi Ian, I received a letter from HMRC who said they have evidence that I received an unauthorised payment related to pension. I have to send evidence to HMRC (bank statements from 04/13-04/14 so they would have seen a payment but not from Fast pensions.) Proving I didn’t receive 12k which I didn’t.

        I also received my annual statements for the first few years but it took 6 months to get the last one as nobody was replying to emails or picking up the phone. I then received an email from James to say he was taking over.

        Now don’t get me wrong the guy James must have a lot of people emailing him daily in the same position as people on this thread but apart from emailing people back there is still no proof that these compensation payments are being made I know I never received mine today 30/06/17 and that its going to be 03/07/17 as James has asked me to bear with him which I will until then. There are also people trying to transfer out, has anyone been able to yet??

        The big thing here for everyone is not being able to actually talk to anyone, all we have is an email to one guy and there is 400 clients. I would like an end to the whole thing and to be able to transfer my pension out and pay the early exit fee. The amount my pension is sat at, if I paid the fee I would get back close to what invested in 2013 but with the 2 years its taking to transfer out I would be close to 6 years and I would have to pay anything.

        Does anyone know of a UK pension provider who will accept these unregulated investments and also accept tranfers in Specie.?????

        1. Trouble is nobody really knows what the “investments” are – Moat told me they were loans, but we don’t know if that is true.

          1. Most of the money would have been washed through his various companies in Spain and the UK

            A click through on Companies house shows how deep the rabbit hole goes.

            You can also be assured that his illegally built property on the sea front in Javea, Alicante wasn’t created from ‘business profits’ as the companies he ran all seemed to close as quick as they opened therefore not amassing much in the way of profit at all !

            For those that would like to know where he is…

            https://www.infoempresa.com/en-in/es/company/deysecomunic-sl

            his home address is in the public domain, this is one of his many Spanish companies, his main loss making company was Deyse Investments S.L. which would probably have been on the receiving end of the pension funds. This was also called Blu Property Group, the Blu Group also has a construction arm, Property Exchange, this would most likely have built his walled mansion on the sea.

            Google maps might be a suggestion if you need the location of his house.

    2. Just to put matters straight I have been contacted yesterday by james on a new email address. He said he will answer my queries in the next few days

        1. I was in contact with James Porter until last Thursday, 6th July, by email. I have today received an email from Sara Moat to say James Porter no longer works for Fast Pensions as he was covering her maternity leave

          1. Very easy to make an imaginary person disappear – there never was any such person. I haven’t heard back from the Moats’ flaky solicitor.

          2. I received an email from james on Friday the 7th July and he never mentioned he was leaving.

            My compensation payment is still yet to be paid as the trustees do not agree with the pension ombudsman decision as they believe that we cannot transfer out of a locked contract. Which we know isn’t true.

            Fast pensions say (james/Sara/peter) whoever they are accept the bad administration last year but the trustees want the right to transfer out taken out before payments are made which we know is just a delay tactic.

            Now Fast pensions have said they will contact the PO to
            Challenge the determinations from the PO before any payments are made..

          3. There is another journalist wanting to do an article on Fast (Disappearing) Pensions – and I will be sending out an email to all the members I have email addresses for asking them to contact her direct. Fast Pensions victims can either call/email her direct or get in touch with me.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    1. Hi David. Only found out about fast pensions a few weeks ago when I receive at letter off the trustees re high court insolvency.
      Pissed off and frustrated .
      I invested in 2014 with a pension I transferred,I smelt a rat last year when I couldn’t get hold of them.
      I received Hmrc letter for unauthorised payment which I fought and had it squashed they informed me of something going on.
      As for James Porter which I think is one of the moats and for is wife Sara what a scamming ……..
      I live in south Cheshire and not far from Warrington or Manchester every dog has his day . So called James Porter ie moat took weeks to reply then Sara fobbed me off for months then rang me saying pension is safe ha ha. I am retiring in 18 months time and these gigs have my £30;000 well think it’s gone .
      Let’s hope we get compensated

  11. If you want to know where the Moats live;
    C/Truita, 28
    Mar Azul
    Have a – Xabia
    03738 Javea – Xabia (Alicante)

    They live in a half built house that they are trying to sell for several million.

    He is well known in the area for people trying to find him, and the locals will be more than happy to assist, as he does not pay bills there either!

  12. received this email today 17/7/17 from sara/peter.james…….Good Afternoon Catherine,

    I am alarmed at the response from you and the tone of your email. I can say that your pension is safe and intact. I am waiting for a response from the Trustee to see if they will accept your request to transfer out early due to exceptional circumstances due to ill health.

    This is a delicate process as not only do we need to consider your position but also the other members that are in your scheme. Your investment was structured in a 7 year fund and was not meant to be withdrawn for this period. If we have to withdraw your investment ultimately the scheme takes a loss on the disinvestment and also if your fund is invested collectively with other members funds, they potentially get to lose also.

    There are only 43 members in the Springdale Retirement plan therefore we have to consider all parties.

    I am disgusted with the threats you have made that are completely untrue and I will have to send this to the Trustee board and advisers to decide if we need to involve the Police. Not sure if this will delay the application for early release. Leave this to the Trustee.

    I am sorry to have to write emails like this however quite serious allegations being made. Why?

    Many thanks

    Sara Moat

    1. https://www.pensions-ombudsman.org.uk/determinations/2016/po-12599/springdale-retirement-plan/
      Not sure what all this nonsense about “the trustees” is. Apparently, the trustee company is FP Scheme Trustees – the sole director of which is Jane Wright in Javea. Why doesn’t Sara just pop down the road and see her? She used to work for Peter Moat at one of his Blu companies that went bust and she was paid to be a director of FP Scheme Trustees. And how can she possibly claim that the pension is safe and intact? “James Porter” (Peter Moat) told me himself that the entire fund had been lent out as bridging loans. That is not what should be done with a pension fund at all – and certainly not locked in for seven years.

  13. notsofastpensions

    Sara’s email sounds suspiciously familiar to James/Peter Moat’s famous delaying tactics.. she’s just trying to scare you into silence!

  14. think best place for me to start, regarding how my pension ended up placed conveniently with fast pensions, is in Belfast, paul ferrin, tmt partnership,formerly the money tree, tmt associates,the list goes on an on,,currently at ormeau house Belfast running numerous companies,,fleecing people,,,pension was meant to go to two other different companies then unexplained circumstances had to be (going by paul ferrin) be changed at last minute,,will start with this scammer,,long list of people wanting to speak with this scarlet pimpernel

  15. Everyone in connection with Fast Pensions is good at the delay tactics, everyday they are disputing something and they need to contact their barristers before they can send anything out. we all know that its our right to transfer out of a pension. yes we may have to pay a penalty but I would rather see part of my investment than nothing at all.

    I’ve emailed Sara today for an update on the contact she was making with the PO regarding the compensation pay outs as FP are trying and split the determinations up, although people at FP seem to miss the point that the compensation is for the stress and inconvenience caused by the bad administration and the right to transfer out is a legal right under section 94 of the pension schemes act 1993 and the PO have informed me already that if they refuse the next step is to enforce the judgment through the high court.

    Looking at the people on this thread it seems we are all being sent around in circles with no end to what’s going on. but taking the word of James/Sara/Peter that our pensions are safe is just not going to cut it. The sooner the police do their job the better.

    1. I am afraid that this is a familiar theme with these scammers. If Sara Moat (or Peter or “James”) had been genuine and honest, they would have sent evidence that the pensions were safe. Falling back on the excuse that “the trustees” are dealing with it is absolute nonsense. The trustee company, FP Scheme Trustees, has one director – Jane Wright – who won’t answer her mobile and some man answers it and says she won’t speak to anyone. She was employed by Peter Moat in the Accounts Department of his company Blu Property before it went bust and was given a small sandwich to be a director of FP Scheme Pensions.

  16. Sherlock Holmes

    Catherine,Do not worry about Sara Moat informing the Police, she is already being investigated by the Fraud Squad, plus a few other organisations, who are very interested in how she and her associates have been conducting themselves. Regarding the “serious allegations” I do not know how she has the nerve to accuse anyone of “serious allegations” against her or anyone connected to Fast Pensions.

    1. notsofastpensions

      She herself and Fast Pensions is currently under investigation by Cheshire Police so that idea that she will be going to the Police herself because of anyone’s apparent dishonesty from what they have had to endure with this company and it’s Directors is hysterical – do not believe a word she says. They will attempt to say or do anything to protect themselves and to prevent their names and company being bad mouthed.

      1. notsofastpensions

        The Police would welcome her with open hands if she ever dare lay a foot within yards of a Police Station! I’d say be my guest – you would be doing us customers all at Fast Pensions a favour!

    2. she is complaining to me because I said it is a small world,i know where they live and that it really does rain in spain ,that I will make sure of. she said she does not know if my remarks will maybe hold things up regarding the pension being pulled out early due to my early retirement because of health reasons,this joker deserves an Oscar,

      1. I am beginning to wonder whether Sara and Peter Moat think all the members (and the Pensions Ombudsman) are wrong, and they alone are right. This really is unbelievable behaviour.

        1. I have emailed Sara Moat no less than 6 times in the last week and have not once had the courtesy of a reply!!! The last email received from her was Friday 14th July in which she said she would have an update no later than Monday 17th and, needless to say, nothing

          1. I have also emailed her about 6 times, I got an out of office on Wednesday. Fast pensions have still made no contact with the pension ombudsman as she said they would.

          2. I guess the Moats are enjoying their holiday and can’t be bothered thinking up any more lies at present – it must be hard work investing all these excuses and explanations for why they can’t find the pension funds.

          3. I have this morning received the following from Sara Moat:-

            July 2017, 9:17, Sara Moat wrote:

            Good Morning Gary,

            I have had a response to the request for transfer out early and the Trustee has declined the application. The trustee has said to re-apply in 3 months and they can see if the position is different. The reason for this, is that they do not want to disinvest assets and lose money for yourself and other members of the scheme.

            Regarding the compensation Gary, I have attached a copy of an email sent to Ian Berry and I will keep you posted of the outcome.

            I am sorry that we cannot help at this time with your request to leave due to your personal debt position.

            Many thanks

            LIES, LIES, LIES

          4. notsofastpensions

            Ha Ha The Trustee that doesn’t exist.. what she actually means is re-apply in 3 months to see if the Moat’s dire financial situation has improved.

            Sara/James/Peter insisted that we all had the right to withdraw our pension but would be subject to an .early exit penalty fee’ however because most of us have taken them up on this offer on the basis that we all just want our pensions back in safe hands regardless of the cost – they are now using yet another further excuse to prevent Fast Pensions ever paying out a penny. Just wait – in 3 months time they will have conjured up another delaying tactic and excuse as to why we will all be faced with yet a further delay. I really feel as though this is an upheaval losing battle.

  17. Paul Barry was also a Director of ‘ Blu Tax Limited’, along with a David Morgan, and a certain Ian Stuart Chapman (Umbrella Loans), do you see the pattern……. Blu being the obvious link to the Moats……

    1. Just out of curiosity, anyone who was given a loan from Blu Funding (now Umbrella Loans), have you been paying this back and/or are you continuing to do so since discovering that this whole thing is a scam?

  18. There is another link to Peregrine and Black Ltd who are FCA registered.
    Perhaps parties might want to investigate here.

    1. The link here would be a certain Karl Victor Thompson and then a Simon James Thomas, Kapsecure is a company they fronted for Moat, plus Capital Performance/London Traders Group and latterly FX Move Limited………

  19. Sherlock Holmes

    The Trustee for Fast Pensions is a Jane Wright, who surprisingly does exist, who I had the pleasure of speaking to way back in 2012 when I had a query about my pension which I had recently transferred to Fast Pensions.One of the few occasions when someone actually answered the phone. I have read the reports where clients are doing their utmost to remove their funds early even to the point of paying a penalty,my Five Year Plan is up in October 2017 and I have asked Sara Moat on numerous occasions to confirm that my remaining fund will be released, but not surprisingly, have had no reply. I have an e-mail on record from “James Porter” stating that the “Trustee” has confirmed the release of my funds, but it remains to be seen if that will happen.

  20. notsofastpensions

    Jane Wright was also the Director of Umbrella Loans – but has since resigned.

    I’ve been looking online and after numerous tries at googling Fast Pensions and being present with such little info I decided to go on a different approach and googled the Retirement Plan that I was enrolled in within Fast Pensions – mine was DM1 Investments but others would have been Leafield Retirement Plan, EP1 Retirement Plan.

    And this is what I found… https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07721321/charges

    All these Retirement Plans come under the Company House Name of Bridge Bank Capital – which of whom if you look at the above links ‘Sara Moat’ is the Trustee of.

    The Director of Bridge Bank Capital was Patrick Gerrard Finnan – who was ALSO a Director of Umbrella Loans with Jane Wright – Umbrella Loans being the feeder Company into Fast Pensions and diverging those that were in financial difficulty to withdraw their pensions.

    It’s clear that all these people are in this together – there are no ‘Trustees’ Sara Moat along with all her friends are the Trustees.

    1. Sara Moat recently commented that there have been no Ombudsman Decisions against Fast Pensions this year – she is lying – Ive read at least 4 on line this morning dating March 2017 through to May 2017

      1. My first complaint was 16th December which was upheld in March then I complained again because I still was not happy in April and this was upheld in May. So one of mine is this year. James porter said the same to me and I said he should check again.

    2. Very interesting reading. I am no expert but does that link not show all those properties as assets of the pension schemes and if so surely they must have considerable value?

      1. Having looked again the pension schemes definitely have legal charges on many various commercial property and they are all listed on the link provided. As I posted yesterday this must be where the money is tied up and if so should be easy to prove value as it is all bricks and mortar

          1. The link in my opinion clearly shows the assets held within the pension scheme.This is where the money is I am convinced, why is everybody ignoring and going off in total tangents about this that and the other When it is clear where our money is?????

  21. Javi – I cant see anything online for a capital performance or London Trader group? Where did you get this info from?

    There is a kapsecure site but seems, surprise surprise to be a holding site.

  22. Javi – I cant see anything online for a capital performance or London Trader group? Where did you get this info from?

    There is a kapsecure site but seems, surprise surprise to be a holding site.

    1. All of these companies, plus FX Move Limited, were companies that Peter Moat needed persons to ‘front’ on his behalf (as he is dis-qualified until 2019). Simon James Thomas, Ian Stuart Chapman, Jane Wright, Karl Victor Thompson and others, were used to this end……. His ‘accountant’ (who is also dis-qualified until 2020) is a Gary Henderson of 12 Lumsden Crescent, St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland, KY16 9NQ, and they use his wife Emma Margaret Henderson in the same way… look for Austen Hayes Trustees Limited, where you will find Henderson, Wright and Thomas as directors (2 resigned) and also Prosperity Asset Management Limited another Moat connected company. Another ‘director’ a Merle Oper was often seen along with Gary Henderson, working out of the Moat ‘Blu Property’ office in Javea…… a real ‘bag of worms’

  23. Jeez – it get’s worse by the day. Is FX Move regulated? Where is Mr Henderson and Thomas etc based? If the UK is the SFO not being made aware of this?

  24. Javi – What is the connection with Black Edge Capital Ltd and Peregrine Asset Management Administration? A Karl Victor Thompson seems to be a former director here.

  25. Sherlock Holmes

    It does indeed get worse. Merle Oper is also the sole Director of a company called Silverene Administration Ltd in Wigan.The connection there is that the Pension Advisor at Silverene is a Paul Bennett who was supposedly the Fast Pension administrator from August 2014 to February 2016, but if you look up his profile, there is no mention of Fast Pensions at all, but between those dates he states that he was employed by a company called Jackson Wood. Guess who one of the Directors was: Ian Stuart Chapman.
    The next person I will mention is Gary Henderson. I wondered when he would surface again. Between 2014 and 2016 my only link with Fast Pensions was by the only telephone no. available or e-mail to Paul Bennett, but sometimes when Paul Bennett was not available, the phone was answered by Gary Henderson, who I found out later from Paul Bennett, was his “manager”. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gary Henderson had connections to Capital Consultancy in Scotland, who were the company who contacted me initially about my pension.

  26. Where is Ian Chapman based? Again, if in the UK, why are the police and the SFO not knocking on his and the others doors to establish just where the hell our money is?

    What did Jacson Woods do too?

  27. Sherlock Holmes

    Paul Bennett is now the Senior Pensions Administration Analyst(quite a mouthful) and has been from March 2016, and from August 2014 to February 2016 he was only a Pension Administrator. The address for Jackson Wood Ltd is Warrington Business Centre, 67, Bewsey St, Warrington which is a “virtual address” which is also the same address for, Blu Financial Services, Blu Debt Management, Umbrella Loans, Fast Enrolment, Blu Vida Ltd, all connected to either Sara Moat or Ian Stuart Chapman or a Mark Fuller.

  28. notsofastpensions

    I feel as though we may be focusing too intently on the Moat’s themselves – they may be the acting Directors of this company but I believe that all these names Ian Chapman , Jane Wright, Henderson are just as much involved within Fast Pensions and the several holding companies and businesses associated with it. What can we do with all this information? I think the sheer enormity of the amount of companies/persons involved within this is unprecedented and goes much further than just Peter and Sara.

  29. I have an email dated January 2014 from Paul Bennett at Blu Funding Corporation Ltd and further emails from Paul Bennett at Fast Pensions

  30. Nosofastpensions – you are possibly correct. Who is co-ordinating all this and presenting to the authorities? Angie?

    I keep coming back to the FCA connection with a Karl Victor Thompson at Peregrine and Black – there must be some view here as to authority involvemement?

    1. At the moment it is all like a jigsaw puzzle – and it is a question of putting the pieces in and coming up with a picture of how the Moats ran this scam – and what parties were involved with them and how it all fitted together.

  31. Sherlock Holmes

    According to Paul Bennett’s profile, he was employed by Jackson Wood Ltd, from January 2013 to July 2014 as a Lending Officer dealing with unsecured loans. You can find his profile and photo on LINKEDIN.

  32. Thompson, Thomas, Wright, Bennett, Oper, Chapman, Sara Grace Moat or maiden name Sara Grace Duchart, etc., have all been used by Moat, as Moat is dis-qualified…. All of the above plus others used to travel to Javea to see the Moats at his Blu Property Group offices (Wright and Sara Moat worked in the office full time). Henderson, also dis-qualified until 2022, was used to account the various companies books etc.,
    The accountants in Spain for his Spanish companies were CFX of Javea, a Manuel Berengeur.
    He is a very slippery person, using (and paying) various persons to ‘front’ things up for him……

  33. Javi – you seem to have good knowledge of the background. Have u shared it all with Angie and the authorities? How does Peregrine and Black fit into this?

    1. Angie is aware of this information as it is her site… she is passing to the relevant authorities. Peregrine and Black have no connection with Fast Pensions I believe, however Thompson was another used by Moat to front things up, Kapsecure etc.,
      Moat is still using a lawyer in Javea called Moreno Martinez Maria Angeles (she worked in his Blu Property office apparently, and goes by the name of ‘Angie’), she will be well aware of his activities, as will be Jane Wright (Trustee for FP Scheme Trustees Ltd),who worked in the accounts department…..

  34. Jav- Kapsecure? This is only a holding page from what I can see although there is a Simon Thomas (where have we heard that name before?) and Stephen Miller on the FCA register. Just what is the connection between Fast Pensions and Kapsecure now? The web widens…

    1. Look at the shareholders in Kapsecure (and their recent company updates), Simon Thomas and a ‘Boromir Investments Ltd’ (Thomas also), SJT Ventures (Thomas also), Thomas is another who is paid to front things for Moat….. both Boromir and Kapsecure have the same company address..Walkers Solicitors in York…who used to have a Director called Marc Stuart Allison who was involved in…..Jackson Wood Financial services with guess who….Ian Stuart Chapman and a Mark Anthony Fuller(Silverene) and a Brian David Taylor. This brings us all the way back to Fast Pensions….where strangely (as Sara Grace Moat is the only Director), Chapman was named as the Director who signed off the ‘Micro’ accounts for FP on March 6th 2017…..
      Also look at Prosperity Asset Management Ltd, Directors Merle Oper and Gary Hendersons wife…..

  35. I would think Angie can’t say too much at the moment, because she now knows what the Moats did with the pension money.
    She would have to keep this to herself for now, because of the criminal action against the Moats.

  36. Javi. Sounds like the whole sorry saga is about to be bust wide open. Lets hope the poor dispossesed pensioners get some restitution.

    1. ‘why are the police and the SFO not knocking on his and the others doors to establish just where the hell our money is?’…….

      1. Just sent out a comprehensive email on where the Fast Pensions money has gone and why the victims can’t transfer out. If anyone hasn’t received the email please let me know.

  37. Javi – no I am a concerned observer having seen the article in he Telegraph. I hope the crooks get brought to task.

    1. It is only being filmed this week so it won’t be for a while yet. I will let you know as soon as I have a date.

  38. To all the members on this list, I pray for the safe return of your pension funds.

    Angie, would you be so kind as to send the email to me? I am new to your site and this is something that has concerned me for some time.

    Why, why, why do the powers that be allow this to happen? Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP’s) have been regulated by the FCA (previously the FSA) for ten years now…….good. I believe the ‘product’ offered by Fast Pensions involved the applicant becoming a member, not of a SIPP but an Occupational Pension Scheme.

    So, who regulates the trustees / scheme administrator of an Occupational Pension Scheme? The Pensions Regulator is the answer? How is it then that any Tom, Dick or Harry has been able to register an occupational scheme? Not just set it up, register it with HMRC but flog it to hundreds of innocent people?

    Please correct me if I have got anything wrong here but it seems to me there is a huge ‘gap’ in regulation here. These people must have known of this ‘gap.’ They would never, ever have been able to register a SIPP under the scrutiny of the FCA. They would have been laughed out of the room.

    It should be common sense that we need ‘joined-up’ regulation with a barrier to prevent those who are not suitably experienced / qualified / fit and proper from entering this industry whatever type of scheme or activity they may be involved in. Are the powers that be telling us that Occupational Pension Schemes are not worth regulating?

    I wish for the best outcome for everybody who is affected by this scandal.

    1. I’ve just sent you the email outlining how this scam worked. It is appalling that pension money has been lent out to all sorts of Toms, Dicks and Harrys as loans on properties. Getting this money back is going to be a nightmare. The Moats are clearly not people who should ever be allowed anywhere near pensions.

    2. I’ve just sent out another email which is copied in to all those on the Fast Pensions Scam email circulation list. If you want a copy of this email, and have not received it already, please let me have your email address and I will forward it on to you. You can email me on angiebrooks@pension-life.com

  39. Gary Henderson is Peter Moat’s ‘right hand man’ another who is disqualified until 2022, but who is managing to act as the accountant for most of the companies associated with ‘Fast Pensions’. His mobile number is +44 7703 847211…..

  40. Sherlock Holmes

    Has anyone received any e-mails from Sara Moat within the last few days. I have received an e-mail asking me to complete a form, to up-date my personal details and return within seven days. I think she is taking the mick. How can she find the time to send them out, but cannot deal with the most important issues, and that is pay out the monies to the clients who are waiting for compensation and also in my case, a drawdown payment that was applied for in January 2016 (yes 2016).

  41. I have also had the email asking me to confirm details. This is the first communication I have had from the company since 2015 !!

  42. Laughable…..
    ‘Fast Pensions Limited currently administers Defined Contribution pension schemes. Fast works very closely with Corporate Trustees to deal with all the enquiries that are raised by clients regarding their pension plan. The pensions schemes that we operate are all controlled by the Trustee under individual trust deeds that determine how the scheme and pension plan should be administered’
    Cop-out.com

  43. This has to be a delaying tactic. They obviously think everybody will send their query through their shiny new website, wait forever and therefore not bother to alert authorities and vent on here…..’oh darling….they’ve got a new website….our pensions must be safe…… they’ve even got a Sky News feed.’

    It is best to not underestimate the intelligence of your customers. Also…..these schemes have no corporate trustee but two individuals (supposedly!)

    1. 100% delay tactics, there is NO NEED for this AT ALL, unless they Lost your records!

      Having spoke to employees and companies in Javea, this is the exact thing he has done there too, stringing people on, pretending to be ‘In touch’ with all those whom he has royally ripped off!

      I would be inclined to ask them for the address, details of Jane Wright, the trustee.
      She lives in Javea too, get in touch with her – before she goes to prison that is for signing off your pensions into Moat’s Pocket!

      High time these scammers were all slammed in jail, asset stripped and banned from ever being part of a company again.

  44. Looking for the Trustee anyone ?

    Jane Wright : Trustee – FP Scheme Trustees LTD
    https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09126225/officers

    Took some time to trawl through the internet, but there is a group image of the Blu Employees on the internet…
    ( http://www.empresasmarinaalta.com/javea-xabia/empresas/seguros/blu-insure-1176.html )

    Larger View -> http://www.empresasmarinaalta.com/images/listing_photos/1176_11174502.jpg

    In the middle you see the Gruesome Twosome with the employees of BLU Property Group.

    I looked for each female (English looking) in the picture and then Facebook searched the name, Jane Wright, I think this is her…
    https://www.facebook.com/janewright0408

    1. Yes, that’s her. I called her and a man answered – he was very defensive and she wouldn’t speak to me.

  45. Sherlock Holmes

    Just looked at the Blu Group photo. I do not think the Moats will be smiling for very much longer when the jigsaw puzzle is complete. Is there another photo of Jane Wright available as I am not on Facebook. I have spoken to her in the long distant past but do not know what she looks like. For anyone who wants to know, Fast Pensions is definately being investigated by the Fraud Squad and have been for a quite a while, but it is a long drawn out process, due to the complexity of the Fast Pension operation and all the “associates” connected to the Moats. Other organisations are involved of which some of the FP’s clients, including myself, are helping with their investigations.

    1. Update email due out tomorrow to all Fast Pensions victims – after I spoke to L. Goodman of Bridgebank Capital No. 5.

  46. Please can you send me a copy of this update email too Angie? I think I’m already on the distribution list but not certain. Thanks.

      1. Hi further to the comment I have posted today are you able to send me a copy of the update please and also any other information would be gratefully received. I have been dealing with a police officer in Cheshire regarding my sister’s claim with Fast Pensions.

  47. Anyone thinking of sending an e-mail to Sara Moat, save your time. She is on annual leave for a fortnight. Surprise,surprise.

  48. I would doubt they will be going to their summer favourite, the Maldives, this time……. disgraceful use of other peoples hard earned money… it will be interesting to see if their daughter returns to the school in Denia (the next town to Javea) in September…

  49. Anyone heard anything lately. Seems to have “gone quiet on the western front”,or know where the Moats have gone on their “hols” with our money.

    1. Laurence Goodman of Bridgebank Capital No. 5 has not come back to me so I have passed it over to our solicitors.

        1. This from Laurence Goodman of Bridgebank Capital. I am sure the Fast Pensions victims will feel free to drop him a line to wish him an enjoyable holiday:

          Laurence Goodman | Bridgebank Capital
          Attachments00:00 (1 day ago)

          to me
          I am currently away on family vacation so you will have to wait until i return to work

          Laurence Goodman
          Managing Director

          DDI: 0161 4430680
          M: 07856 686330
          E: lgoodman@bridgebankcapital.co.uk

          1. What kind of response is that? How rude and pompous, a trait among Chartered Accountants.

            Does not even let you know when he will be returning. A word of reassurance that he will look into the matter would not have cost him a lot!

            Will be interesting to see which side he is batting for.

          2. I was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt initially. Perhaps a few of the Fast Pensions victims will drop him an email or even give him a call.

    2. Not defending these clowns but there is no proof whatsoever at this moment the Scroats are holidaying with our money. Such talk without cast iron proof Is dangerous, especially
      as the truth is unfolding, wind it in fella, eh and see what the result of the above post brings

      1. I am sure Mr.Goodman would not brush off his customers or suppliers in such a rude manner.

        Things are afoot at Bridgebank:-

        https://bridgebankcapital.co.uk/category/news/

        It would also appear their premises are to let.

        If these things are signs of a significant corporate development, I would think the last thing he would want right now is a rotten scandal exposed as it appears it will be.

        Whilst Bridgebank itself is a proper and apparently successsful business, looking through the Bridgebank Capital No 5 Ltd charges on Companies House website is like opening Pandora’s box. A legal eye needs to view all of this.

        In the meantime let us all hope Mr. Goodman will help himself by helping us all.

  50. Hi..would also like to join the group. I am in similar position to most in that fast pensions will not release my pension for transfer. Being fed the same b……t Please could you forward all relevant emails to me. I would be most grateful

  51. Just a recap on some very important numbers if you are trying to find out what has happened to YOUR pension funds…..
    Peter Daniel Moat (Head Honcho) +34 649558187
    Sara Grace Moat (Director) +34 618656635
    Jane Wright (Trustee) +34 652053469
    Gary Henderson (The accountant) +44 (0)7703 847211

  52. The Moat’s may not be using our money for their “hols” but I bet they are enjoying themselves. At least they are having a holiday. I will not be having a holiday. I would have done if Fast Pensions had released my drawdown payment that I applied for nineteen months ago. The Five Year Plan I signed up for matures in October 2017, I wonder what Fast Pensions will do then.

  53. I am the sister of the widow still waiting on the 79k pension fund being released by Fast Pensions after numerous excuses delays etc. My brother in law died 2 years past March and we have a Pension Ombudsman ruling ordering Fast Pensions to pay the fund plus compensation within 28 days and guess what – NADA!

    Sara Moat and her husband Peter Moat should hang their head in shame at the despicable disregard they have for giving people their money whilst they clearly live a good lifestyle. I am a great believer in Karma and what goes around comes around and I truly hope these horrible people never have a good life ever.

    They have caused untold misery to my sister and her family and I will never forgive them for that.

    The lies told by Sara Moat and people in her organisation using various names (not even sure if they exist as anyone can call themselves anything by email) are vast and many / they use delaying tactics all the time including asking for forms to be completed / documents to be sent / etc etc

    Sara Moat herself emailed me over 18 months ago advising the “disinvestment” of the fund had commenced but could not say how long it would take for the process and for my sister to get her money.

    I would very much like to be copied in and included in any further updates relating to Fast Pensions and the evil people behind this what I consider to be a scam!

    1. Call the ‘trustee’ Jane Wright on +34 652053469 and ask her what is going on….. terrible situation caused by terrible people

  54. hi ….
    i also have been with fast pensions since 2013.
    i retired in December 2016 and approached the company for my pension…
    with no replies from the website and phone calls were a waste of time (recorded message “please contact us via the website)
    action fraud were informed in november and again in march 2017 ,soon after that the fast pensions website was offline.
    i also recieved a email from sara moat on the 3 august asking if the details of my plan were correct .
    i replied that they are correct and told her action fraud were involved ..
    today i have another email ….with the plan information update !!!
    with a changed birthdate !!! another delay tactic !!! about time these people were in prison !!!
    i would appreciate being sent the update emails Angie !!!

    1. notsofastpensions

      David,

      I also too received this same Email from Sara with a completely incorrect birth date – this is yet ANOTHER deliberate delaying tactic.

  55. another two emails from sara moat…
    one apologising for the mistake in my statement ,the other with the corrected statement…could it be that i will now get my pension !!! ???
    maybe …!! could be good news for the many people on the site …we will see !!

  56. RE: latest response from sara
    SM
    Sara Moat
    Reply|
    Today, 15:16
    You
    Good Afternoon Catherine,

    I have discussed your case with the Trustee and it has been pointed out that in order that you are able to receive your full pension amount due to ill health, the scheme rules and HMRC rules state that we need to have evidence from an independent GP that your illness is terminal and also life expectancy is going to be less than 12 months.

    I have the doctors notes and sickness notes on file however it does not expressly say this and therefore will need another letter to this effect in order that it can be represented to the Trustee Board.

    As soon as I receive this from you I will schedule this for the next Trustee meeting.

    Let me know if you need anything else from me otherwise I will wait for you to come back to me.

    Hope this is OK

    Many thanks

    Sara Moat

      1. Martin Peacock stays up the road from me and has another Company five minutes from my work. I have been advised not to go near him by Pensions Ombudsman. I believe he is no longer a trustee

    1. notsofastpensions

      Sara is the trustee! It says so in black and white on Companies House.

      This is getting ludacrious – and I am now highly concerned there is an emerging pattern that she is emailing all the customers of Fast Pensions with completely incorrect birth dates.

  57. Does Sara Moat not realise that everybody KNOWS who the trustees are? Surely she must. She looks so ridiculous.

    Does that company, FP Scheme Trustees Ltd exist only as a smokescreen?

    Do we know anything more on the whereabouts of the BCL loans? IF these have been reported to Companies House as ‘satisfied’ and they are not then this would surely be fraud…….? Has some sort of ‘remortgage’ occurred where the liability has been taken on by another lender?

    1. Her boyfriend/partner will answer and say she can’t come to the phone (so leave a message which won’t get answered). She is no more a trustee than my next door neighbour’s cat. She is just yet another stooge paid by Peter Moat to pretend to be something she isn’t.

      1. I’m trying to find her, and I must say, I am very close to it, I have been helped by locals, we have found her house that she sold recently, and I’m waiting for a forwarding address from the new owner’s solicitor.

        When I have it, I’ll let you all know.

  58. I was quite shocked this week when I actually received my compensation payment in my bank. Maybe this is a turning point for FP. Has anyone else been paid yet?

  59. thats good news CS …hope it is a turning point !! my pension is apparently “locked in” till 2019 ,but forms are available to release it early in cases of hardship or illness …at a loss of course !!….according to the latest email from sara moat .

  60. I have been dealing with this nonsense since transferring my Pension in June 2013. I was introduced by a 3rd party called Jackson Francis who I have since found out are also a scam Company. I have been dealing with The Pensions Ombudsman, Action Fraud, The Pensions Regulator, The Police, The Citizens Advice Bureau, The Courts, James Porter and Sara Moat. My Pension was transferred in June 2013 everything was ok statements were received for the first year then nothing. I have been dealing with this non stop for around the last two and a half to three years and I am getting nowhere at all. I was awarded as everyone else was a Compensation payment of £1k and advised by the Pensions Ombudsman I could transfer my Pension out to another Company. That was in December 2016 still nothing. They have been putting me off with excuse after excuse since December 2016. I have even visited Spain and tried to arrange a meeting with Sara Moat however when I say to her I am in Spain she says she is in the UK and when I say I am in the UK she says she is in Spain. I am at my wits end with this and they have now told me I am locked in for 7 years as I signed paperwork agreeing to this which I know I did not do. I have since heard that the Company that introduced me to Fast Pensions who were Jackson Francis have been signing clients names against agreements therefore people like myself do not know these things have happened and I believe this is the reason that I am now locked in until July 2019. I also believe that all of the money belonging to everyone has gone and that I personally will not receive my money back. I have lost almost £60k. I have now been advised that I need to take out an Enforced Determination to have my Pension released, this will cost me 10% of my Pension therefore around £600 however this does not guarantee the release of my Pension. I also have to take out a Court Judgement at a cost of £70-80 to have my £1k compensation released from Fast Pensions again this is not a 100% guarantee that I will receive it. I can either do this or I can just wait and see what happens.

  61. ANTI FAST PENSION AND MOATS

    Who’s who?

    After dealing with Fast Pensions for sometime and putting up with the rubbish from Paul Bennett (who don’t forget is in the nest), the Sara Moat before James Porter, then back to Sara Moat.

    But I ask the question who is who?

    Confused yes so am I the whole Fast Pensions web is something Insp. Vera would find hard to undercover.

    I have dealt with “Sara Moat” for 3 years I have never came across a woman who is so full of herself and also rubbish. Her excuses are just something to be desired as everyone she is caught out with fact.

    If you push her enough and debate with her enough in her panic she starts to let the “cats out the bag”.

    There is hundreds of people with their investments stuck behind such a Wicked woman who just talks a load to deter coming up with the funds.

    I personally look forward to the actions pending against them and so see justice, which will be with authorities making the move.

    I don’t have any faith that Sara Moat will settle any case even if it is demanded by the P.O.

  62. CS. You have mentioned that you have received your compensation, how long did the whole process take. I take it you completed the IDRP form. Was it e-mailed to Sara Moat, or did you post it. Has anyone else received a “surprise “.
    Troof. Have you managed to find the Moat’s yet. Has their house actually been sold. The price was just over 3 million.

    1. Hi I have received my compensation also. Completed an IDRP Form and emailed to Sara on 2nd August. Received compensation on 13th September. Wont let me have my Pension Pot though, says its locked in for 10 years!!!

    2. Not the Moats, but I HAVE found the trustee.

      She has an apartment, near McDonalds in Javea, and drives a U.K. Silver JEEP, if you want more details, ask Angie

      The house as far as I’m aware is still on the market, but it’s not advertised in the windows or websites of agents in the area yet.

    3. I started the process in December 2016 with the Ombudsman, after having two appeals upheld I should have received the £2000 by 31st May but that never came, daily emails saying it would be coming and your money was safe.
      I then contacted the pensions ombudsman again for some advice and they said to contact the county court and enforce the determination, I did this at the end of July, Fast pensions said they never received any correspondence from the courts so I scanned and sent it by email.

      Things went quiet and I sent daily emails I then decided I would escalate this to the next level with the county court, I then sent this to Sara who then on the following Monday 4th September replied to say they would be paying the compensation. I agreed that if they paid the compensation and the court costs I would waiver the interest. I was then paid around the 7th September around Midday.

      I was true to my word with Sara I informed the courts that it was paid in full.

  63. Why has nobody knocked on Peregrine & Black’s door re Karl Thomson’s connection with Mr Moat? Surely they are the first port of call as they are UK registered and appear to be FCA regulated.

  64. I can’t see that just because we have an FCA regulated person / entity mentioned here as a connection of Moat that this is terribly relevant.

    In opening these ‘bogus occupational pension schemes’ and receiving transfer values from ‘real’ pension providers, Sara (the Moat’s) have not acted illegaly. It is disgraceful this loophole was there and there are proposals to stop this happening in future but…..the horse has bolted. They ‘legally’ started Fast Pensions Ltd and got hold of these funds. They didn’t need to be authorised by the FCA or any regulator at all. This is a shameful situation but true.

    The issue must now be………..where are the funds?

  65. Good Morning
    Whats the latest on people who have received tax demands?

    I have now received a further update this weekend to say the tax demand will stand and I need to pay the £1350 owed for taking the thank you payment which they are saying is a loan.

    I asked to take the case to a tribunal but looking at the letter which is not very clear it doesn’t say it has been to one.

    Thanks

  66. I have received word from Sara that I can now withdraw the lot , circa 90k I am led to believe. She will be sending me a final statement within a few days and the withdrawal will be put before the ” Trustees ” early November……Stay tuned.

  67. Grant McBeth…….The £90k being offered to you is as a transfer value to another pension pension scheme isn’t it? I hope so.

    The reason I mention this……….if it’s paid as cash in your hand I would be very concerned about the possibility of a tax charge from HMRC as an unauthorised payment which could result in the loss of more than half of it in tax. Obviously we can’t trust these people to do it right so please be sure.

  68. Cheers Ian.
    To be fair, I’m waiting for an e mail confirming the exact amount and details, but this was the figure in the statement which I eventually received.
    I’ll be ultra careful, you can be sure.
    Rip off Britain was a waste of time. I ended on the cutting room floor, but they didn’t cover a fraction of the stuff that they were asking me.
    The Producer did say that they had been constantly reassured that all of the money was still there and would be released at the appropriate time (paraphrased )

    1. They always do that – the piece ends up being very weak and generic rather than hard hitting. Bring back to the days of Roger Cook!

  69. It seems to me that ‘Rip Off Britain’ just gently alerts the public to ‘rip-offs’ and doesn’t play any part in helping to get criminals behind bars which is what is needed here. I’m sure it wasn’t a waste of time but still very disappointing.

    So……Fast Pensions started in 2012 offering very unconventional pension plans under the radar of regulation. We understand the ‘investments’ of the funds were high risk, high interest loans (arranged by Bridgebank) and presumably the Moats would live on a big share of the interest paid by the borrowers. If 5% was payable to the members funds that would leave plenty over to be creamed off for the Moat’s luxuries. Greedy, disgraceful but is that how this was planned to work?

    OK…..so somewhere along the line was there was a change in their ‘modus operandi?’ Due to Goodman’s incompetence it is only now that we find all of these short term loans were repaid to the ‘trustees’ in 2013. So what are the scheme’s investments now? What have been the investments since 2013? The duty of the trustees is to act in the best interests of the beneficiaries so how are the trustees now generating a reasonable investment return for the members?
    Is it possible that a bust property firm in Spain was an ‘investment’ of the funds? If this finally gets to a court of law would this be considered a prudent investment in the interests of the beneficiaries or simply ‘theft’ by the trustees in abuse of their position?

    At the start Fast Pensions was a shoddy, ill-conceived little venture but having managed to get control of a huge sum of money these ‘chancers’ may have morphed into ‘bona fide big time criminals.’ Something seems to have changed and all morals may have evaporated along the way. So many criminals start small before getting even greedier and going the whole hog. I am very concerned this may be the case here.

  70. Ian – the connection to Peregrine and Black is what intrigues me. Were they looking for the cover of FCA regulation with them to give the whole scam a veneer of respectability? If so, has anybody pulled over the directors there and in particular Carl Thomson?

    1. Eddy – if we look over the Fast Pensions literature, the ‘original’ and ‘new’ websites there is no mention at all of the FCA. As these are ‘occupational’ schemes they did not need to be authorised by the FCA or any other body so it isn’t really a surprise. It seems the Moat’s have lots of friends and business associates but who knows who may or may not have been party to the (likely) crime? We’re pretty sure of two or three who are! Has anybody seen any evidence to suggest they looked for a ‘veneer of respectability?’ They were free to start this shabby company, gain HMRC approval of these occupational pension trusts and then receive transfers in from real pension providers and unfortunately….they did it.

      1. Just a quick point on this: there is no such thing as HMRC “approval”. HMRC registers a pension scheme and gives it a PSTR number. In the case of an occupational scheme, it also has to be registered with the Pensions Register. At the point of registration, it is a harmless piece of paper with a number on it and is nothing but a “wrapper” which can contain money and assets – including property and loans. Both of these are perfectly legitimate assets for a pension scheme, but ONLY if invested prudently and with regard to diversity and liquidity. The downside about property, loans and property loans, is that they are risky and illiquid unless chosen extremely carefully by qualified investment managers. But in certain circumstances it could be appropriate to invest a very small percentage of a fund in such assets – i.e. less than 10%.

  71. The good thing about the ‘tame’ tv programme was that it will alert many other investigative journalists and upset clients to the problem. The Moats can run but they can’t hide, watch this space ……

  72. It is a pity that the money is not still invested in these bridging loans as all would have been secured on fully surveyed property at low loan to values with full security. Bridging Finance is not high risk at all. Are we sure there is no further type of this investment as I would sleep a hell of a lot easier if there was.

    1. Ian, I have to disagree a little.

      Bridging Finance is high risk. This is the reason few lenders offer it and why the interest rates are so high. Most importantly, it is totally unsuitable as an investment of the pension funds of ordinary people. Angie has explained this on the associated blog.

      I do, however fully agree with you that it is a pity that the funds are no longer out on loan with security. If the choices are secured bridging finance or a ‘free for all’ in Spain I know which which is the lesser of the two evils. It is now late 2017, the loans were repaid in 2013 so what the hell has the money been doing for the last four years?

      1. You are absolutely right – and I think the fact that Bridgebank hid the fact that they had all been repaid is extremely suspicious. Remember, one of the borrowers was a director of Bridgebank. One of the Fast Pensions victims went to see the hotel in Scotland which was being converted into flats, and he said the work looked serious dodgy.

  73. Well Since the exposure Sara “Peter” Moat has forgot how to write emails. Dealing with the alias’s of Fast pensions for some months they seem to have lost communication.
    We did receive an email from the alias last week which was very blunt, unprofessional and somewhat concerning. They have failed to answer any questions which we have sent them. But what we have reverted to doing is sending emails with facts as they like to say emails contain allegations.
    As I pointed out to the Alias allegation is a statement without facts, every email since then has included the facts with the statements.
    One they don’t like is to have a challenge, when they send emails with nothing other than fabrications or useless excuses fire back at them with facts and they soon stop using them.
    Months of excuses from various alias of Fast Pensions has created a wealth of facts, emails and points. There is not one excuses the Fast Pensions fraudsters have not used. Most of which with the right evidence and fact find can be proved to be absolute rubbish.
    I did ask “Sara” yesterday in an email if the reason for the lack of response was due to the recent exposure and increase in contact… Yes you guest no reply.

    I personally would love to knock on the Moats door and start asking questions. Failing that stand opposite them in the court room when justice for the victims is handed out (put behind bars).

    Just yesterday the FT advisor produced a shocking article “FCA finds millions have no idea what pension they bought” is this no surprise when you have people like the Moats and their puppets flogging pensions schemes?

  74. Just to continue my saga, Sara did indeed contact me within the promised 5 days, albeit with an apology that she had not received my final transfer amount from the accountant , but assured me that I would have it next day. She replied next day with the final transfer amount, which was more than previously indicated. I now await the decision of the Trustees meeting on Nov 2nd as to whether and when I can receive the sum .

      1. If she don’t pay up soon she will be having a meeting with me and anybody else who would like to come join me on a quick trip to Spain.?

  75. I also have to wait till the 2nd November for the trustees to meet and discuss pension transfer. SMells like bacon to me

    1. I want my pension money back no more rubbish. I’m not in the best of health. I don’t need anymore stress. It makes me angry talking about it. If they do not comply with are request I think all the victims need to get together and come up with a strong plan of action.

  76. I would be very interested to hear if any one receives a reply from Sara Moat after this “Trustee(s) meeting” on the 2nd November, and if so,what excuse, delay tactics, or fabricated story she comes up with this time. I do not know how many times I have been told that there is to be a “Trustee meeting” and nothing has materialised from them, that is if there was ever one in the first place. We all know who “is pulling the strings”.

  77. Why does it take a meeting when they know what we want and they know what they have.
    Sorry I can’t today My sister’s friend’s mother’s grandpa’s Uncle’s fish died this could delay things until further notice !

  78. Mop – by all accounts our friend Mr Thomson at Peregrine & Black who have a relationship with Moat are now under investigation by the FCA ref one of their employees insider trading.
    Birds of a feather flock together…

  79. Wellll….My transfer out of the scheme has been approved….but……”I am awaiting timescales for the disinvestment of assets to convert into cash in readiness for transfer…” Should be early next week apparently.

  80. Mop/Grant I would be grateful if either of you can give us a progress report next week when Sara Moat gives you the timescales for the transfer of your funds. There might be hope for me yet. I am still waiting for answers, both on my long over-due drawdown payment and the transfer of my remaining funds.

  81. Classic ‘Moat speak’…….
    ‘the disinvestment of assets to convert into cash in readiness for transfer’
    Don’t hold your breath……

  82. Been in contact with with Sara Moat over the last few months.what I’ve learnt from this despicable creature is that it’s every body else’s fault for all this miss.

  83. We hear about ‘disinvestment of assets’ but what assets exactly are we talking about?

    Has anybody any idea what ‘assets’ these funds have been invested into since the Bridgebank loans were paid back to the trustees in 2013? Something tells me some big lies are being told.

    Fingers crossed. If anybody is hoping for a real transfer value to be paid to a real pension scheme, make sure the new real provider is geared up and ready for this. Make sure the receiving scheme has issued all of the required paperwork to Fast Pensions asap. Fast Pensions will have to pass information to the receiving scheme about the type of scheme and benefit using (normally) a form produced by the receiving scheme which Fast Pensions will have to complete and sign. Get started with this now. I hope Fast Pensions know what they are doing but I seriously doubt it………..

  84. So the Moat’s have arrived back to Javea, and moved back into the half finished mansion in Calle Truita. Maybe they are available to answer everyone’s questions now, whilst actively trying to sell the property paid for by who………..or is this one of the ‘assets’ being ‘dis-invested’…….

  85. Has anyone received any definite dates when Sara Moat is going to actually make any payments, or are we going to continually accept her broken promises, fabricated stories, and delaying tactics, and continue to “string us along”

  86. True to her word, Sara got in touch yesterday and has quoted 3 to 6 months to release the funds. Is this an unreasonable length of time, or about right. Obviously I imagine it could be pushed through quicker if someone was really on the case, but I suppose that they are not in any particular hurry.

    1. Oh what a surprise more delays to paying out what’s rightfully yours and what next after 3-6 Months more excuses ?
      The light at the end of the tunnel is still very dim!

    2. Just a question Grant, are these communications being sent on headed notepaper of any kind with contact details for Mrs Moat? I have to say this sounds like a typical Moat delaying tactic, when many months ago on this thread someone was promised release of funds by October just gone.

  87. 3-6 Months what kind of commitment is that, a definite date is acceptable not a shot In the dark.
    You can’t tell me that nobody can give a secured date ,we don’t live in la la land it’s 2017. What was the point of the meeting ?

  88. This delay of 3 to 6 months is utterly unacceptable. Timescales for withdrawal / waiting periods should all be covered in the literature provided at the start BUT………this is a cowboy organisation. It needs to be busted wide open.

    Everybody needs a little encouragement and we need to see some sliver of evidence to suggest these funds may not have been stolen. Delaying tactics, waffle and broken promises just tells an awful story.

    Be sure…….the Moats have ruined their own lives with this scam and sooner or later will pay a very high price.

  89. When Sara replies to you stating that it needs to be put in-front of the board of ‘trustees’ – please call her bluff and send her a direct link to Companies House

    https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07721321/charges

    Which clearly outlines the 37 charges made against the company and quotes word for word that ‘Sara Moat and Martin Peacock (As trustees of the FP1 Retirement Plan, DM1 Retirement Plan, EP1 Retirement Plan and Leafield Retirement Plan’ and then kindly ask her to explain why she needs to have a meeting with herself?

    I’ll wait in anticipation to hear her reply…

  90. There are many people based in Spain also owed money from these charlatans, who would be pleased to point any interested persons in the right direction, in order to ‘doorstep’ them……..

  91. Mop – your first port of a call is a Mr Karl Thomson of Peregrine Black – according to some here this was a front (FCA regulation etc) to funnel money through. I’d suggest contacting the FCA – at least they are onshore UK.

  92. I would like be to speak with people who are in the same situation as me. with out having to leave messages on a public notice board. I don’t mind if it’s me our someone else who starts a private group. This group will only be for people who have been victims of fastpensions and people who can help us…give me a few days to look in to things. But I would be grateful for help in doing this….

  93. Is anyone still dealing with HMRC on the tax demands? I have now had to pay mine and take it to the tribunal to see if I can get somebody to actually listen to my case properly. Has anyone managed to get out of it?

      1. I have just sent an email, nothing has bounced back to say its not working yet.

        I received my last email from Sara on the 06/11/17 when I was chasing my statement. Funny this was the time they went off line last year.. 🙂

        What’s the nest step here? What are action fraud saying has anybody heard from them?

  94. Anyone who intends trying to contact either Sara Moat or Jane Wright by e-mail over the festive period will receive an automated reply saying that both Fast Pensions Ltd and the Trustees are now on holiday as from Monday 18th Dec until after the New Year. They have wished everyone a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Not a “cat in hell’s chance”.

  95. That’s nice of them…hopefully I will get my transfer in 2018…..to you all have a happy Christmas and New year…and good look for 2018..

  96. Anyone else told they are awaiting details from the HMRC to pay people?

    Anyone else smell a rat? Another excuse from Fast Pensions which is untrue and just delay tactics!

    Now they are taking an extended break for Christmas (more delay tactics)

    Lets hope they make a New Years Resolution to pay members and top making members suffer!

  97. Mr Moat is now spinning a story around Javea (where is is back living) that he has sold Calle Truita, and the sale completes on January 20th. If true, you wont see him for dust, although it may just be another yarn to calm some of the people that he owes money to…..

  98. Let’s hope his creditors gets the money before him if this is true…

    About time he had a spoonfull of his own medicine.

  99. Anybody heard from anyone at Fast Pensions since they returned from leave??

    Maybe they are finding it hard to read all their mail from the extra long break.

    On the other hand maybe just delaying a bit more!!

  100. I got an e-mail from Sara yesterday saying that she had heard from the trustees ( !!!) and that it is looking like my funds should be released early April.

  101. Is this site now deleting peoples posts ?. Several posts have been wiped from this discussion since they replied to mine of the 10th.

    1. The only person who can delete posts is me and I haven’t deleted any. Am wondering if there is a bug? Will check it out with the web host.

  102. Hi. Could anyone provide me with an update or as much information as possible as to what the current situation is. It turns out a family friend is caught up in this. It would be much appreciated.

    Thanks is advance.

    1. Would anyone please be able to also advise on the best course of action for a tax demand on a supposed 25% tax free lump sum paid in 2013. I am assuming they are treating this as a loan which has not been paid back within the determined timescale.

  103. I honestly don’t know how Sara Moat can sleep at night?

    Constantly winging people along when they ask for when they will be paid.

    Those that she said April to don’t hold your breath!!

    She certainly does not have 10/10 for delivering on promises.

  104. I believe that I am a Victim as well, I got the letter from HMRC today (22/01/2018) stating that I owe them money from a bung basically from Fast Pensions when I transferred in.

  105. I emailed Sara today 13/01/18 about my tax letter from HMRC, I got a reply within a few hours saying she will get back to me within 5 working days.

    1. Javi can you confirm the address of the house they have sold?
      I am sure many people will be interested in this information.

      Especially now the first case of its find highlighted below!

  106. See link below from news item today. As we are informed this is the first time a court order has been obtained to force pension scammers to return funds to victims then hopefully a precedent has been set and court orders may be obtained against other scammers. A ray of hope maybe……….

    https://www.moneymarketing.co.uk/pension-scammers-ordered-repay-13-7m-victims/?cmpid=amalert_4660432&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=mm_daily_news&adg=D5E222C9-B810-4F80-BBE7-FB3E57FBFBC7

  107. It’s about time Sara Moat was put in a dock and made accountable.
    “I didn’t pay your funds because the cats died”

    “I can’t pay your funds because its raining”

    All reasons which are totally unlinked to the matter but in the words of Sara Moat they prevent payment.
    (These are not quotes, but might as well be).

    It’s about time the Pension Regulator took over the Pension scheme and hit Sara Moat with a hard stick.

    She has no remorse for what she is doing to people and their lives.

  108. is anyone still dealing with the HMRC tax demand?? I have had to take mine to a tribunal.

    Has anyone successfully appealed?

    1. I am appealing but don’t know whether i’ll have any luck. I received an email from tribunal this week saying the other party have applied for an extension of time and they have consented.

  109. I have asked HMRC to prove the debt on numerous occasions and they state they feel it inappropriate to supply the evidence. I have submitted it to tribunal currently awaiting an outcome

  110. Right, people, I’ve no idea what fast pensions have been up to, I’ve received no word or letter about compensation but have received tax demands from HMRC, can someone give me advice please

  111. So April is upon us……Mr and Mrs Moat promised to pay up now did they not? Maybe James Porter will appear on the scene again with an excuse not to pay out….or maybe they have just spent it all…. anybody had a communication from them?

  112. Javi – why oh why has nobody connected the dots with Karl Thomson at Peregrine Black? They look to be FCA appointed and he was a director with Moat I understand from reading above. Surely Angie would have traction here?

    1. Karl Thomson , to my knowledge, has no connection to Fast Pensions. His link to Peter Moat was through Peregrine Black, and then Kapsecure and FX Move Limited. FX Move was a smokescreen created by Moat when his ‘Blu Property Group’ was going under in Spain, he actually told staff they were moving into currency trading, but as most of them realised it was another Moat tall story. Unfortunately, Peter Daniel Moat is a serial ‘blagger’ and it seems that Thomson, Bullman and the rest were others he attempted to con.

  113. So finally the Courts have caught up with the Moats, who clearly have robbed us all, let’s hope they haven’t managed to waste all the funds on there lavish lifestyle.

  114. I am so angry. They planed it perfectly they sold the villa in Spain hid the cash and now they have gone in to bankruptcy. Is they a solicitor a can call who can help me please.

  115. Hi law enforcement. Spain and GB

    Surely the proceeds of crime act will come into play so every last penny this fraudulent couple have amassed will be returned to the people they have scammed.
    Any property and even the shoes they wear should be taken off them.
    This act should be used so much more and any dodgy defending business assets included.

  116. Who is repasentin us victims?? our do we not have a voice in this.are these people going to get away with this crime? Can anybody help me please..

  117. MR I HATE MOATS

    Chances are Moats knew the net was closing in. There is reports they did not communicate with Pension Ombudsmen and others.
    What you have got to realise is the provisional liquidation was proposed to the High Court by the Insolvency Service.
    The Insolvency Service can act in the interests of the public and report on any business they see not fit.
    We can only assume some of the concerns raised in this blog formed part of the Insolvency Service report proposed to the High Court to propose the action.
    Insolvency investigation is confidential and anyone found to be “tipping off” the involved company can be prosecuted.
    Well it’s now frozen and we await the 30th May to see the outcome. The Moats can object to the liquidation if they wish.
    As you will read in the Telegraph article if the official receiver takes over all business assets and funds will be put in a pot.
    From there creditors and investors will be paid out but this depends on the assets.
    If the funds are short of the creditors /investors amounts it will be based on a percentage.
    As you will read further up the blog Moats would not be the first investment business to have personal assets seized to support the funds required.

    Regards their house I am sure the Insolvency service will have tabs on this as well as funds / charges should they need them in time..

  118. Sara, Peter, Jane, and the mysterious James Porter who we all know was Peter.
    For years you have bluffed your way through life, hopefully on May 30th the Court will be on the Victims side.
    We have all suffered enough of your continuous delay tactics, lies and destroying peoples life’s, whilst you all run around in your flash cars and living a life of luxury, Wasn’t through hard work, just deceiving Innocent hard working people.
    No wonder you never answered your phones obviously afraid of hearing the truth.
    See you in Court, hoping you are all left penniless.

    1. The fact that Sara, Peter and Jane all still reside in Javea shows that they are quite literally ‘as thick as thieves’….. The Moats child still attending the ‘Alpha and Omega’ school in the next town of Denia….. easy to find

  119. It will also be interesting to read who appears in court on the 30th May 2018.

    Sarah Moat director of FP.
    Jane Wright chair of Trustees.
    Ian James Stewart – Director of Blu etc.
    James Porter – Former admin.

    1. Sara Moat sole Director of Fast Pensions,
      Jane Wright sole Director of FP Scheme Trustees Ltd,
      Ian Stuart Chapman sole Director of Blu Debt Management and Blu Financial Services and Blu Personal Finance and Umbrella Loans…and once signed off the micro accounts for Fast Pensions….
      Peter Moat was ‘James Porter’ for a while, as he controls all of the above….
      As was stated above, ‘as thick as thieves’….

  120. It would appear that Ian Stuart Chapman of the Blu companies and Umbrella Loans is right in the thick of this and likely to lose his livelihood too. It is very good indeed that these companies are also in provisional liquidation, stuffed with the pensions monies of innocent people.

    So…..S & P Moat resigned their directorships following P Moat’s bankruptcy and disqualification and Chapman was immediately appointed as MD. Seems if you can’t do the dirty work yourself then get a villain in to do it for you.

    I prey there is loads of money left to be returned to the victims. As for this sad lot…they must take what is coming to them…they have ruined their own lives.

  121. I had £65000 invested in that scamming bastards called the moats.do we all have to wait for the final outcome in court?

    1. I think it is a foregone conclusion that Fast Pensions, the 15 pension schemes and the various loan companies – as well as the trustee company – will be wound up. We can only hope that there will be swift and decisive action taken to unscramble the inevitable mess the Moats will have left behind. It is very important that all members email the Insolvency Service and register their interest in this matter.

    2. Why do you not ask Mr Thomson at Kapsecure and Peregrine Black what he knows? Has anybody done this – Angie? I keep repeating that they are FCA regulated and so have a lot to lose from my limited knowledge merely through association with Moat. He just might spill the beans on what he knows.

  122. Sherlock Holmes

    The 30th. of May 2018 is going to be a very interesting day. Unfortunately I cannot make the hearing but I will be represented and will present a petition if needed to wind up Fast Pensions Ltd and their associated companies. I also hope that swift and decisive action is taken to wind up the companies and we see ” a light at the end of the tunnel” and all of the involved clients receive all of or a % of the monies they invested.
    This hearing was arranged as a result of the intensive research carried out by the Insolvency Service to bring it to a Civil Court, but I hope that we also at some point be able to have enough evidence to bring the Moats and their associates to a Criminal Court, with the assistance of the Economic Crime Unit in Cheshire, and others, to bring this episode to a satisfactory conclusion once and for all.

  123. Poor “Moats” must be very stressful for them reading the controls of the provisional liquidators

    Well what goes around comes around.

    Let’s hope they get everything they deserve… not half as stressful as the people who invested money in one of the many schemes they “ran”.

    In the words of Sara Moat “Disinvestments”..

  124. Sara Moat had major issues with other parties the accountant was taking ages… HMRC took three attempts to do anything… The Trustees never responded after a meeting? Did Jane Wright review the policies before the Liquidators knock on the door….

    I can only imagine when Mr Liquidator knocked on the door it was a bit like that old joke from Bobby Thompson. (Debt collector).

    Knock knock…..
    “Come in Sir take a seat”..(smarmy approach)
    “I am coming to take the lot!”

    Reading the guide of the Liquidators there is restrictions but further enforecements can be applied if required or later down the line..

    The clock is ticking and the 30th May is creeping up… I would be interested to know how many rats the Liquidators has found in the nest the “Moats” & Co have created.

  125. MR I HATE MOATS

    In a lot of connections to Fast Pension Ltd seems to be familiar name.
    “Mark Anthony Fuller”..

    What was his involvement in Fast Pensions Ltd or the net of FP Ltd?

    1. Mark Anthony Fuller, Ian Stuart Chapman and David Brian Taylor, oh and a certain Laurence Howard Goodman (Bridgebank)…. All in the mire with Peter Moat…. search ‘Jackson Wood’, ‘Promise Debt Solutions’, ‘Firmus Secured Loans’…… they have all had their fingers in the pie….

  126. MR I HATE MOATS

    I am aware of Jackson Wood through a certain Paul Bennett who creates a loop of his own…
    It always links back to a common point in the net of the “Moats”

    1. Yes, we have taken advice. Right now we are awaiting the outcome of the winding up petition against Fast Pensions which will be heard on 30th May.

    1. The judge ordered that Fast Pensions and all associated companies should be wound up. I will be doing a detailed report shortly.

        1. There will be quite a lot of detective work involved to find out where the money has gone and how much of it is left. The Moats have not been at all cooperative with the Insolvency Service to do – no surprises there.

  127. MR I HATE MOATS

    Well let’s hope the process is continued to a full criminal investigation and they act on it…

    What the Moats & Co have done in wrong in so many ways..

    £21 is an unreal amount… that the Moats & Co encourage people to pass over to them…

    £4m which will have filled the scammers pockets….

  128. MR I HATE MOATS

    Dear Mr Moat,

    I hope you continue to read this blog as you had great interest in it until 28th March.
    During the process leading up to the above date you quote…”brooks is a scammer and scams people in genuine schemes of an annual fee”

    This just proves two points.

    1) you are full of lies and deceit
    2) the only scammer and proven is you!.

    You also quoted me to sleazy after what I put on the blog… hmmmm the only sleazy person is yourself.
    You also told me that the information on Pension Life blog supported a legal case you had against them… more lies… not even a sniff of a case in the court last week.

    Well the tables have turned and your little scam created empire has closed on you… at least you can’t use this web to deceit more people out of funds and pensions.

    Let’s just hope some of the funds are found as the £21m fund is a lot of people’s retirement or benefits they are entitled to.

    But as well as this there is the criminal case which I am sure will speed up following last week’s judgement and the evidence within.

    You might think you have hidden the money but maybe the “proceeds of crime” they just remove personal assets to support their case.

    I am sure the rest of the people feel the same part 1 of 3 is over.

    1. Winding up
    2. Criminal case.
    3. Removal of personal assets.

  129. Melanie Cutter

    Hi everyone,

    I have been following this horrendous story for quite sometime. Has there been any updates since the May hearing? Surely a criminal case is being started for all parties involved not just the SCROATS!

  130. Hi I have just became aware of fast pensions.my problem was I applied for a loan but was told I had to transfer my pension to fast pension before I could get the loan. I tried to transfer my pension and was told it had to stay with them for 10 years. This was back in 2012 when I transferred to them. They are terrible to get a hold of ,I have tried many times without. Does anyone know or help how we can get out of this so called company. Thanks

  131. Hello all…I have also been scammed by these crooks..not only have I losted my childrens inheritance but as the lady Catherine eluded to this was all down to Paul Ferrin of TMT Belfast. To make things worse he has me down as a CEO of a bogus firm.fraud in its ugliest form. Well Mr Rat Ferrin I have your home address in Belfast and am coming to take your wife and children off you period..be afraid very afraid..what is for you won’t go by you.

  132. Peter and Sara Moat now reside in a brand new villa in Denia, not far from Javea, where they ran ‘Blu Property Limited’. The address is Calle Baladre 14, Denia.
    Their daughter is at the private fee paying school ‘Alfa y Omega’ in Denia.
    Hopefully this is of interest to the hundreds of people trying to locate their pension funds….

  133. Any updates from the Dalriada, no information from them whatsoever.

    Also has anyone had any luck with claims against the pension providers who let our pensions go?

    Thanks

  134. I not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great information I was looking for this information for my mission.

    1. Thanks for the comment. The next thing that needs to happen is for Peter and Sarah Moat to be prosecuted and jailed for the fraud they have committed. Hopefully, now the courts are open again in Denia – where the Moats live – these proceedings can get underway. Dalriada Trustees is now the appointed independent trustee for Fast Pensions – and although they did not take criminal against any of the scammers responsible for other pension schemes in their custody – including Ark, Capita Oak and London Quantum – there is no question that they must now take such action against the Moats for the Fast Pensions scam without delay.

  135. Great blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get comments from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!

    Ninguno es defensor del pueblo. El jurado está ausente del regulador creditos 24 horas asnef de pensiones. Todavía deseo y espero que esto no sea fraude y que las víctimas puedan transferir sus pensiones de manera segura y recibir una indemnización sin más demora.

  137. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be really something which I believe I’d never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me. I am having a look ahead to your next publish, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

  138. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

        1. Slowly – achingly slowly – the authorities are beginning to take some action. When Peter Moat and his wife Sara are eventually jailed, hopefully they’ll have nice comfy beds and they can both sleep well for a few years. I think porridge is good for getting a good night’s sleep?

          1. I think prison food will help with their diets, they do need to lose a few pounds, and not just sterling…… it seems Sara is venturing into FX trading, via their new company ‘KickFx Limited’……

  139. Somebody necessarily lend a hand to make critically articles I might state. This is the first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular post extraordinary. Magnificent task!
