Tony Stephens at LincolnTrust
Initially Tony Stephens cold called me offering to refer new clients to me. I brushed him off, figuring his time would be better spent suckering in the next rube on his call list.

Apparently, what I took for a one-off annoying phone soliciation was actually the start of a dynamic new business partnership. This morning he sent me the following email:



And then this one:



Yeah, I eagerly await your call.

The application requests a check for $195. I didn't bother to open the letter.

If you would like to take advantage of Tony's services, he can be contacted as follows:

Thnaks for this caution, saved me wasting any more time when I got a "come-on" email
It did not look really genuine anyway, and no phone no is a real warning.
Maybe he's Nigerian....

"maybe he's Nigerian"

That's funny! It does seem like one of those, "We'd like to deposit 14Million US dollars in your bank acct." scams. Thanks for the heads up, I was just contacted by him about "client referral".

No address, no phone number, hmmmmmm... Shady

Yeah, I was a SUCKER. Beware of the Partner "Group Administrator" Edgar S. Whittenhouse and Joseph Goldberg "Vice President". I too got the same email but mine was actually a fax and I did send him the $195 to sign up never to hear from him again. I've called numerous times and of course the # is disconnected. If you get a call from ANY of these bozo's RUN!!!
