Hey guys
Reading some older posts regarding questions in relation to companies being legitimate, registered etc. I was wondering if any one could help me identify a investment broker company Charrington Pacific Group with head office in 18F Marunouchi Nijubashi Building, Tokyo, Japan.
I have managed to find some information on them good and bad but can't seem to find the business name registered, I appreciate any information relating to this company. Also they have a retail office 23F Petronas Tower 3, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Kind Regards Mark

Hi Mark, their websites don't work. And the fact that they are listed below doesn't instil a lot of confidence:

Thanks Thomas, I invested with them and I have a share certificate with a company called UCS International Limited (23F Petronas Tower 3, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) to show for it which looks to be dodgy as well.....Sounded fishy from the start and I ignored my gut instinct...😳

The web site works for me. Charrington Pacific Group
It has no obvious red flags in terms of typos etc but there are some general red flags:
  • it's generic with no real information. Just fluff.
  • no Japanese version of the site
  • no corporate history profile, no introduction of it's principals
  • no way to log in to a client account portal
  • domain registrar is Domains by Proxy

That's really weird. I tried in multiple browsers, on my desktop computer and laptop, on an iPhone and an iPad, but all I get is

503 Service Temporarily Unavailable エラーの意味と解決法

@mdchachi, thanks for confirming the suspicions.
