    Confectionery investments. John Paddock

    Here is a big AVOID! Mr John Paddock, and John Paddock Supplies Limited, of Hednesford in the West Midlands. This one is being investigated by the Police at the moment but let's just say that at least twenty five individuals have invested their hard-earned with this man, on promises of significant returns. The returns arrive for long enough for individuals to bring in a lot more friends, family etc - and then lo and behold, the returns stop. The total exposure of the group is known to be well into seven figures........

    Mr Paddock himself lives in a modest semi in the Midlands, drives a five year old Peugeot saloon and appears to have none of the trappings; so where has it all gone, who knows....... (yet!!!)

    Wanted urgently for this investigation - all evidence that you may have. We need to put this guy out of the game for as long as possible.

    Internet is a big place. Sometimes people who got scammed do not know about this website.

    From what you wrote it sounds like classic ponzi scam.

    That behavior is exception to the rule. Usually scammers like to through cash around to show how "successful" they are.

    This individual displays none of the trappings whatsoever, his story is that the money is invested with a confectionery distributor of some kind in Manchester, UK, which in turn has links in Ireland.

    We, and CID, are convinced that in fact he still has access to the cash.

    I don't know what's happened but I am finally getting some response (privately of course) to this response by other people who have been burnt by this individual. And it seems that the authorities have discovered where the money is. So fingers crossed that we might eventually see some of it back.

    Re: Confectionery investments

    Mr John Paddock received an 18 months prison sentence last week for "fraudulent trading", a lesser charge on account of his guilty plea, though the judge took a dim view of this.

    Now we understand that the net is closing around some of the other ringleaders in this scam, and that there are some clues as to where all the money is.

    I do not understand why people love to invest in these ponzi schemes.
