Hi lovely people,
I am considering investing through a company called JC Fulton Alliance. Can anyone please help decipher their legitimacy.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

I see nothing there to make me think they are legitimate. At least the address leads to a real, potential business address. But the whole web site is minimal and tells us virtually nothing. There's nothing to explain why they would be doing business in Japan. They don't even pretend to have a client-only section where you can log in and view your portfolio.

There was a ton of stuff on Google that made it sound like they invest in China. I don't think I'd trust that to make me money.

Thank you for your input. Do you know of any registries etc that I could do some checking up on?

It looks like they have taken their website down.
Hi Thomas,
Thanks for you input and for checking. I have just gone to their web site again and still opens up.
I am not sure why yours couldn't find it.

The web site is still accessible to me. This isn't the first time you were unable to see one of these dubious web sites from your end. :unsure:

They don't even claim to be doing business in Japan so I'm not sure what kind of registry you're looking for. If you Google them, there is virtually nothing about them out there. Why don't you try calling their phone number and see who answers and what they say? Minimally they should have a professional receptionist if they are legitimate.

Perhaps they are blocking access from Japan. Or their DNS hasn't propagated yet.

I managed to get their address via Wayback Archive. It seems to be a rental office space. Nothing I see on their website instils trust.

Who is "they"? You can't selectively block countries from viewing one's web site can you?

Sure, it's possible on server-level (easy), and even website-level (more complicated and via htaccess).

I have often contemplated excluding certain spam-prone countries from accessing our server, lol.

Edit: they are using canned news to project an air of expertise. Even made it into Yahoo Australia:

Thomas, Interesting what you say about blocking countries from viewing their site. Even more interesting why a Japanese company would block Japan.
I will see what I find with their phone number and also see if there are other ways I can verify them.
Obviously part of it is to know for me but also for you to know if the question comes up here on the forum again.

Thanks again. You are great

Just a little update. I called the office number and went straight through to a very mediocre voicemail message. When I called the number that I had been called on before I got through to someone that answered the phone as being from trading floor. Not very professional sounding at all. I think I am convinced.

Thanks for your input and wisdom. I really do appreciate it.

Thanks for the update! :)

Twenty-four hours later, I can still not access the website. All I get is a default server page.

What kind of accent did they have?
