Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is this a U.K. Company?
no solicitor can run a background check on an individual.
I can only tell you whether the company exists, is that ok?
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 30 years.
Whilst the Company exists no Account shave been filed and that is a cause for concern
In addition there is no Charles Richard Bernard registered as a Director of this or any company - again a cause for concern - and there is no trace of him anywhere
That being the case you would be wise NOT to make such an advance payment
Please ask if you need further details
You are welcome
