DeVere in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam kept calling me saying that I had been recommended to be contacted from one of my "friends" or "colleagues". Every time I asked who, they could not answer. Eventually, after weekly phone calls for months, I meet with one of there "expert financial advisers" what a joke.
No qualification whatsoever, he would be arrested if he did the same thing in his home country. When I asked if they had anyone qualified as a CFP in their office....more BS and no definitive answer.
A vague work history in financial services, no specifics. No clients I could meet, for someone so successful and such a long time in the industry he does not have one client that would recommend him.
Anyways glad I saw this site, I feel sorry for anyone who has been taken by this scam.
People in Vietnam beware, I hear they just opened an office in Hanoi.
