| SCAM ALERT Ian ( Iain ) Horsburgh Ottoman Group OGI SA The Firm FRAUD |
Ian Horsburgh operates through the illegal enterprise Ottoman Group as well as OGI, SA, The Firm and Lynx. The Ottoman Group\'s way of conducting their scam is to charge upfront fees and retainers to fund investment activities which never pan out.
Before you interact with Ian Horsburgh, ask for references of deals they have funded as well as their management accounts for last year. Firstly, they have no credible references and secondly, their books show millions of dollars in losses. Is this representative of a company which supposedly has over 4 Billion USD under management? Not!
Their crime is in breach of regulations surrounding wire fraud, attorney law fraud and federal securities fraud. In dialogue with the National Futures Association, CFTC and United States Attorneyâ€™s Office New York, a large number of companies and individuals have been victims of their fraud since their start two years ago.
Direct and confirmed accomplices from the Ottoman Group are Dustin Collins, Stephanie Hillman and Brent Purin.
If you are in contact with Ian Horsburgh, be advised his association with the Ottoman Group is under investigation with strong evidence of conducting illegal business activities in the magnitude of millions of dollars. All Tier 1 financial institutions have been warned of their activities, and their companies do not pass background checking as a result.
It is your responsibility to conduct background checks when conducting business nationally and internationally. A search in yahoo, bing, google or any of the keywords \"scam ottoman group\", \"fraud dustin Collins\" or \"scam alert Stephanie Hillman\" will reflect some extents of their publicly reported fraud.
