Warning - Ventura Capital Partners

A reader received a cold call from a company in Grenada calling itself Ventura Capital Partners and asked us to check them out. It turns out they're not exactly squeaky clean.

They appear in a list of Unauthorised overseas firms operating in the UK issued by the Financial Services Authority in the UK.

The Grenada Authority For the Regulation of Financial Institutions (GARFIN) have issued a press release stating that:
"The Grenada Authority for the Regulation of Financial Institutions (GARFIN) would like to advise the general public that the following entity is not licensed by GARFIN to conduct any type of financial activity in or from Grenada.

Ventura Capital Partners
St Pauls Road 6
St Georges
PO Box 2698

Persons transacting any financial activity with this entity will be doing so at their own risk. Please be guided accordingly."
If you get a call from them, I suggest you just hang up.
