Rostex Global Update 6th June 2021 - warning !!!
Many people on the Telegram group are either contacting or have been contacted by agencies offering to recover our funds. I cannot speak for all of them but MOST of them are scams. DO NOT SEND MONEY UP FRONT TO THESE COMPANIES.
The video that has been posted on the Telegram group is not genuine.
If you notice all dates have been obscured.
Why would they do this?
There is no reason other than to hide the fact that the video is not genuine.
If anyone has been contacted by any company who would have no knowledge that you had been scammed then this is very important and you MUST let me know. This would indicate that the lead has come from Rostex themselves and it would come as no surprise if Rostex Global are behind some of these scam recovery companies.
These scripts are not genuine.
One of our members made an enquiry with Solutions Report – a company that offered to help.
This is what they sent him.
Our member immediately recognized this as a scam.
There are things you can do to determine if a company is legitimate or not.
Firstly check the domain by navigating to Icann Lookup.
If the website is new – do not trust the company. I appreciate that all companies have to have begin somewhere but any financial recovery website that is less than 6 months old is most likely not genuine.
Also check the website for falsehoods.
On the Solutions Report website there is an image of 2 people under About Us.
Download a copy of any images you find on a website you are doug=btful about and upload them to TinEye.
TinEye is a free reverse image lookup service .
The image from the Solutions Report is revealing
Rather than being representatives of Solutions Report, the 2 people shown are in fact a stock image that’s been around for several years.
I accept that Solutions Report do not claim these people are representatives of the company but it reduces their credibility.
One other check you can do is on the advertised contact numbers.
They claim to be in battery steet (should be Battery Street) which is in San Francisco yet the contact phone numbers are Kansas and Manchester UK.
I called the Manchester number and it was permanently engaged.
So be very wary of companies offering to recover your funds.
I intend to speak to Scam Help on the 7th June and I shall notify everyone by email what was discussed.

Rostex Global Update 1st June 2021
I’ve had some information posted through regarding Rostex Global. I’ll be honest and say I’m not sure exactly what the author of the comments is saying or claiming. They come from Raffaella Ricciarelli who is I am informed the Italian representative of Rostex and the representative of Italian speaking Swiss nationals.
What exactly the function of the Italian representative does is a mystery and it is not known if she is part of the Rostex setup but this seems likely.
Most of if not all of this information is nonsense. They initially blame the size of the company and the recent ICO as to the cause of the website being down. Neither of these claims are genuine. Rostex have NOT launched an ICO and site access had nothing to do with verification of the company by UK Supervisory Authorities.
The claim that the reopening of the platform is dependant on the Authorities is clearly false.
The claim in the third section that the issues Rostex is having has anything to do with the UK authorities is again just nonsense.
These messages were complimented by further messages posted on Sunday 30th May and Monday 31st May.
Summary of this new information
Raffaella Ricciarelli is claiming that Rostex will be back at the end of June.
I seriously doubt if this is true.
Apparently there is a Zoom call between various partners/associates and the Rostex Group and if I get any information regarding what was said I shall post the information here.
One further update.
I am expecting a call from Scam Help who have made contact.
I shall of course inform everyone how that goes.
Rostex Global update 25th May 2021
Rostex Global were an Edinburgh company that offered various investment plans.
They seemed professional and credible and had an exceptionally smooth and efficient investment dashboard that was sophisticated and well designed.
They accepted investments in a variety of cryptocurrency including Tether which made investing in them cheap with $1 transaction fees and no withdrawal fees or penalties.
I had been personally invested with Rostex Global for several months and had deposited and withdrawn my profit simply and with no issues.
There were a number of lets call them amber flags that were waving on a detailed look at the Rostex Global website.
First of all was the video that they had purporting to be Gregor Douglas CEO of Rostex Global reading very badly from an autocue.
Its impossible to understate just how awful this was. I’ve posted a link to this charade below.
You would have thought that the CEO of an organization such as Rostex Globalwould have been confident and assured enough to relate details of his company without having to resort to an autocue. Whether this man was indeed CEO Gregor Douglas and not an actor I don’t suppose we’ll ever know but he did not instil much confidence.
Then the online chat disappeared.
Previously I had messaged Rostex Global using their online chat and it had always been manned even at the weekend and on Bank Holidays but now it had gone without any explanation.
It reappeared a week later but then disappeared again.
I decided to call the Edinburgh offices on the advertised landline. The call was eventually answered by an Eastern European man so this was confirmation that the offices had no receptionist which was concerning for a company of the alleged size of Rostex Global.
And there were discrepancies on the website.
They claimed they had been in existence since 2016 but the website had only been registered in October 2020 and the servers they were using were Namecheap who are the principle domain hosts for scam companies.
Companies House also confirmed that Rostex Global had not been around since 2016 as the company website had claimed but had in fact only been registered since October 2020.
Other than Gregor Douglas CEO, the other named person was Andrew Ross who appears in several company YouTube videos.
Neither Gregor Douglas and Andrew Ross had any social media exposure. No LinkedIn account, not on Facebook, a web search found no information on them which is unusual for anyone who had allegedly been active in the financial services marketplace for 5 years.
It was around this time that I was contacted by Marcus Hines.
We had a long chat on WhatsApp where he proceeded to cast doubts about Qubit.Life (another investment opportunity) who he claimed he had worked for and he extolled the benefits of Rostex.
He told me he had 5000+ in his downline and it was Hines who had recruited Steve the man who introduced me to Rostex.
The conversation left me in no doubt that a) he was part of Rostex b) he was not genuine.
He was very keen to tell me just how extraordinary Rostex was and that they had company capital of $850 million and that they had insurance deals for large investors.
Anyone who posts images of bundles of dollar notes screams scammer in my book. This is straight out of the Nigerian Scammers Handbook.
He was also very keen to show me his investments in Rostex.
Adding this lot up, he wanted to believe he had invested $280,000 worth a staggering $540,000 but he wasn’t finished yet.
He messaged me telling me he just invested 5 BITCOIN worth at the time around $200,000 and was recommending I should do the same:
I decided to invest a lot in my investment plan today (Diamond VIP)
A very profitable plan with great profits
It is advisable to consider this plan
He also sent me this:
This was supposed to prove that the $120,000 invested with Rostex was insured against loss but the reality is that its just a piece of paper and if Marcus Hines is working in association with Rostex which he clearly is the this is an agreement between the same person.
14th May 2021 - red flags raised
On the 14th May when I checked the progress of my latest Rostex plan – it had disappeared.
I left a message for them anticipating an emailed reply.
Not long after this I could access my Rostex dashboard and my Professional One plan was now a Diamond Plan and paying 5%.
As previously I had only been receiving 1.8% I was becoming more and more sure that there were serious problems with this company.
They also were now offering 2 extra plans that they called ICO plans. An ICO USD plan and an ICO BITCOIN plan.
These plans were 10 day duration and paid 5% which if genuine was quite deal after all this would return $150 on a $100 investment in 10 days.
It is clear in hindsight that Rostex were readying to cut and run and these clever ICO 10 days plans were designed to sucker in a bit more cash before Rostex disappeared.
My scepticism was proved correct when at the weekend of 22nd May and 23rd May, I could not access the Rostex Global website and it has been down since and I have had several emails and messages from victims with the same problem.
All attempts to contact Marcus Hines have failed and he has not ben seen on Whatsapp since 16:28 on 19th May.
A(nother) lesson learnt
This will make it 4 times I have been scammed following Bitfx-Trade, North Trust Finance and Exoveinvestment.
In mitigation I have never lost much to these scammers and they have provided material for my websites.
I have to say that the Rostex scam was exceptionally good.
They clearly spent a good deal of money, hiring offices in Edinburgh and fitting them out to look legitimate.
Just look at the number of people they have hired and made to wear company shirts in the video.
They must have had to purchase 20 or 30 Apple Macs to give credibility to the company and spent thousands on fitting the offices out.
Clearly this was a drop in the ocean compared to the amount of money they have scammed with 10’s of thousands of “investors” mugged.
So this was an exceptionally well planned and well executed cryptocurrency scam although why they hired this actor to play the part of Gregor Douglas and posted such a God awful video on the company website is a mystery.
