    Pacific Tycoon / Davenport Laroche shipping containers

    hey
    does anyone have any experience or insight into these guys? also online as Investcontainers.com
    You purchase shipping containers and they lease them to shipping companies with guaranteed buyback after 5 years at the cost price you paid.

    Returns look good, if its legit!!

    thanks

    If returns were that good they would have all their money invested instead of attempting to persuade you to invest yours.

    If Simon Stepsys or Mark Ghobril are involved it's 100% a SCAM!

    It's absolutely not legit.

    The SCAM company Pacific Tycoon was professionally marketed by a broad network of carefully planted blog shills starting in 2012 and stopped paying people about the time the early investors thought they would be recovering their capital. Groups of investors are pursuing legal action in the hopes that there may still be assets that can be recovered. There is a "closed" Facebook group of over 160 former investors whose losses range from a few thousand to over a million dollars named Pacific Tycoon Investors Forum. You can get an idea of what dealing with these crooks is like by checking some of the reports at Pissed Consumer.

    Davenport Larouche, TraditionalInvest.com and Investcontainers.com are someof the dummy companies that were set up by Pacific Tycoon to try and suck in more people. The consensus opinion is that the containers do not exist at all and that the company's greatest expense is "reputation grooming" by planting a blizzard of fake promotional blogs, which all have the common denominator of: "your comment is awaiting moderation" ...

    12% guaranteed or "up to 30% aggressive" with buy-back in three years?

    Does not happen. Never has, never will.

    You can find a decent overview of these SCAMS written by David King here.

    A lot of Australians have been sucked into various presentations of this same SCAM. The Australian government addresses the topic here.

    Hi there. Davenport Laroche is a scam located in Vietnam. They have some vacant offices in Hong Kong for meting up clients. Initially you will get a portion of your invested money as "return of your investment" but latter they will tell you that the good contracts have ended and will not receive returns any more unless you pay them more. It is the same scammers that run Pacific Tycoon.

    Be careful of the blogs and web sites promoting scam this as a good investment. Most of them were set up by the scammers or are supported by them financially just to advertise their scam.

    They have also set up another web page (leasing company) under the banner dedacocontainers (www.dedacocontainers.com). They dont have a single containers. See what happened to Pacific Tycoon clients just to know what will happen to you if send them your money.

    If you read carefully the contracts they send to the future clients it is implied that they have the right to pay you nothing. Ask a lawyer before depart your money for good.

    Inestcontainers.com and traditionalinvest.com are face web pages made to direct clients to the scammers. Do not invest by any means.

    A writer named Suzanne Day exercised considerable investigative patience to produce this extensive expose' in 2014:

    https://toughnickel.com/scams-fraud/pacific-tycoon-scam

    The excellent article concludes with multiple links to other sources and now has over 100 user comments.

    "Pissed Consumer" pages are up to five, now:

    https://pacific-tycoon.pissedconsumer.com/review.html
    https://pacific-tycoon.pissedconsume...2313/RT-C.html
    https://pacific-tycoon.pissedconsume...4888/RT-C.html
    https://pacific-tycoon.pissedconsume...102947715.html
    https://pacific-tycoon.pissedconsume...2101/RT-C.html

    You can still find fresh new fake promotional blogs and enticing ads from these scammers ...
