The company was incorporated in 2006 and the accounts are not overdue which is a good sign.
I am concerned when a business has a website but the email address is a generic one such as, in this case, AOL.
You might be better off emailing them here
and speaking to them on the telephone directly.
Just because the business may be legitimate, doesn’t necessarily mean that the people that you have been dealing with are and it doesn’t necessarily mean that the bank account details you may have been given, to transfer any money to are actually the bank accounts of the business.
It also seems remarkably odd that the bank account is in the name of a different limited company, Biz for Sale, although perhaps it’s understandable because the registered office is the same one. This latter business was registered in 2010 and its accounts are up-to-date.
The Profit domain is owned by Best for Sale and was registered a long time ago, in 2005.
Provided you are actually dealing with the people work for the organisation, the business to seem to be a legitimate type business broker. However you must rely on your own enquiries because we have not carried out a full financial investigation, just the checks above.
Because of the amount of money involved, it might be worthwhile getting on the train and going to their office. You don’t want to part with money to someone who actually doesn’t work there!
What I can’t even comment on is whether the business idea model works or not but I did find this
which I emphasise is about the business model and not the organisation.
Can I clarify anything for you?
