    Hi, Saikot. I'm looking for a female partner. You could send me your contact info.I may introduce my friend who is interested to you.
  4. I am myself a Victim of Privilege Wealth Scam (payday loan investment scam) which Brett Jolly is behind. The company's directors are Richard Colwell, in whose name the notice was published; Mark Munnelly, and Martin Sampson, all of whom are facing potential substantial liabilities as a result of the estimated more than $40 million investment fraud that was perpetrated by the Privilege Wealth Group, which comprised companies and individuals in several countries, most notably England, Gibraltar, Luxembourg, Panama, and Spain. Reported by OffshoreAlert, the ultimate controlling person in the group was British serial fraudster and disqualified U.K. company director Brett Jolly, a.k.a. James Jolly, while other senior participants included Munnelly, Sampson, British salesman Andrew Sweeney, and South African attorney Peter Stokes. The payday loan scam model is: they claim to lend money to the poor people in US at an interest rate between 200-390% per year and in this way the group assures its investors a high profit. And there is even an insurance to insure all loan capital against loss, wrongful acts and default. Based on the description of the insurance provided by Privilege Wealth, the insurance can guarantee the capital of the investors in case of Crime (internal and external), Cyber Attract and Capital shortfall. This scam is reported by David Marchant of the blog Offhshorealert- https://www.offshorealert.com/ and by Tony Hetherington of Mail on Sunday- http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/experts/article-4763678/Banned-11-years-1m-bogus-investment-cheat.html Here are Brett Jolly's famous scam stories: - 16 years ago, Brett Jolly's Holland Moorehouse in South Africa made more than 8000 people lose their investment for holiday accommodation and he left SA in a sudden without anyone knowing. https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/timeshare-dream-turns-into-a-nightmare-79184 - Here are some other investment scams beside pay day loan of Privilege Wealth and Creditech: Timber in Ghana to get minerals in Ireland / Non-existing property in Brazil / Carbon credits...... - Professional stuff and website, beautiful stories at beginning. - Pretending London-based offices / stuff turned out to be in Spain. - Partnership in Gibraltar never used banks of Gibraltar, instead, all transactions were made to UK accounts. - Never received your title of what you have invested or in the case of Privilege Wealth, no new contract regarding the resolution. - No one answered the phones / emails/ etc and all the directors disappeared after you put money in. - Companies went to liquidation. - Brett Jolly argued that he was a victim himself ( he really enjoys arguing and being a victim himself ). http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/green-planet-property-investment-scam-2860441 http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/experts/article-2516152/Green-Planet-Investment-promoted-Lee-Sharpe-closed-investors-lose-14m.html http://www.redd-monitor.org/2013/03/07/anglo-capital-partners-another-boiler-room-scam/ https://www.lovemoney.com/news/24425/why-this-property-investment-was-wound-up-by-the-high-court http://www.insolvencynews.com/article/16294/corporate/brazilian-land-scheme-firm-wound-up-by-high-court http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/10843101.Southend_businessman_facing_fraud_probe_after__investment__firm_loses___14million_invested_by_300_people/ http://www.bbc.com/news/business-28013148 When you search for the “biggest diamond in the world” on Youtube, you can see Brett Jolly promoting this “amazing diamond” which was found out totally FAKE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT51mN6FLgI https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/oct/06/southafrica.international https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/worlds-biggest-diamond-revealed-as-fake-396153.html These are the companies involved with these scammers which continue to propose "payday loan investment" to potential investors like Privilege Wealth did: GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 1 LLC GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 3 LLC GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 4 LLC GENERAL WEALTH INC (INACTIVE) CREDITECH USA, INC (INACTIVE) CREDITECH USA, LLC C-TECH FINANCIAL CORP FINTECH SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT GROUP INC USC LOANS, LLC Those companies are registered in Florida. Others such as Creditech / Investabl / International Portfolio Service / Prestan Invest are registered in UK. Privilege Wealth is going to be put to liquidation as 77 of Brett Jolly's former companies. They are worse than a casino- with them, you will have absolutely no chance to win. Jolly is now in Asia and he is targeting Asian and expat investors as his next victims. Please be cautious of these people and of payday loan investment scam. You want to make profits, they want your capitals.

  6. A nice helper is wanted

    I have an English learning workshop with my partner. We teach kids and try to help them to experience various ways of learning a foreign language. Among all the ways, communicating to real English speakers as much as someone can is the best way to get promotion. So we have a practical idea like asking for foreign friends to join in our project. The learning project might be like this: 1.we will organize activities once or twice a month. (Going to visit museums and places of interest, experiencing authentic Chinese culture are gladly to be considered) 2.we will set up some language learning goals for the real scene. 3. Invite foreign friends to communicate with kids in English to have the “real chat” and finish the language goals concurrently. So according to above idea, we hope you are interested in Chinese culture and enjoy staying with children, and if you have teaching experiences, that will be so nice!!! And the most important thing is that you will stay in Hangzhou for a long and stable time. If you have interest in this, please send me the private massage!!

  11. Where can I buy lettuce?

    Been here many years, and now am on a diet and have been successful in the early goings. Basically I take supplements all day and then eat a BIG ASS SALAD for dinner with a small meat side. Started this in the USA. I have really enjoyed the salad because I can find LETTUCE everywhere. So, and this might sound dumb, where do you get heads of lettuce in China? I do go to Wet Markets and where the locals shop a bit. And the supply seems to be limited. I am just seeking a ball of lettuce. I do make a mean salad though. Lettuce, red peppers, onion, pico de gallo (can I get that here, don't like tomatoes, although this is basically tomatoes, cherry tomatoes for a substitute) chopped sweet pickles (bringing jars from overseas) raisins. I also lack a real oven and do not wish to fall back into cooking food with oil, but would also like to have a small amount of meat. But I am keeping to mostly a vegetarian plan. Would also like to join a gym, but they are so fking expensive here. I have priced them and just too expensive. I like saunas too. But yeah, where to get lettuce?

  22. Volleyball in Hangzhou

    @JDubI tried joining the group at the top of this thread but got a system error back. Is there a new WeChat group started? thanks!
  23. The Imported Beef in China

    You can get Australian beef at Ole' or at Metro. Ole' also has Canadian beef but it's pretty expensive. You might also try ordering food online from Fields. They'll deliver to your door and they have Australian beef too from what I remember.
  24. Best Thai restaurant in HZ??

    I can't speak for the others but I enjoyed the food at Mango Thai Restaurant. It's a little pricey but the food is good. It's located in the mall near Ding'an station I believe. You'll know it's the right place when you see the Awfully Chocolate restaurant/cafe/dessert shop outside. On a side note, they have some of the best cakes I've had. Definitely recommended.
  25. Indoor Volleyball Hangzhou

    I'd also be interested! What WeChat group are you referring to? Also, how competitive will it be?
  26. Hangzhou Business Partner Wanted

    Question for you, are you a foreign owned company and simply looking for a local company to partner with as required by law? Or are you a Chinese based business looking to crack the foreign market?
  27. New to Hangzhou from San Francisco

    amazing that someone like you is even complaining. You can at the very least drink clean water and don't have to catch your food everyday like back in Zambia. I'm pretty sure your mother would grow a dick if i handed her a plate of food.
