I have had several phone calls in the last couple of days from people who had invested in a Diamond company. These investors had been struggling to recover their investments and were now being called by a purportedly London based company explaining they were working with Grant Thornton to value and sell the Diamond company shares.
These enquiries have led me to resurrect my post of last week to ensure awareness around the 'Recovery Room' scam and it's many guises.

Some of the most recent cases have been companies involved in wine, carbon credits, land, precious metals and diamonds. Victims of such companies may only find out their investment was a scam when they learn of the liquidation. The victim may receive a letter from the Liquidator, see something on the internet or find out by chance when trying to contact the company for an update. Any one of these scenarios can be life shattering and see the victim subjected to another level of scam manipulation known as the ‘Recovery Room Scam’.A Recovery Room Scam is a follow up to a lost investment. The perpetrators of the original scam will have shared or sold their customers’ personal details within a scam network. Victims will now find themselves to be on a list that is circulated around different scam operations.
