Hi
I just saw I could add files, please see attached and advise if firms are authentic or is this a scam
Expert:  F E Smith replied 1 year ago.

I cannot find any reference whatsoever on the Internet to this company. That is not to say that it does not exist. Certainly, the Foreign Securities Commission exists in Japan with those telephone numbers, (unless that is a very elaborate scam).

Scammers are now producing very good quality letterheads to try to entice people into paying money. What does seem odd is that the seller is being asked to pay $7000 as some kind of security for a purchase.

What is the background behind how and why these people were introduced to you want to buy some shares?
