John, thank you for your reply.MY advice to you would be to write to your tax office and detail the issue. Making phone calls in my view is waste of time.The benefit of putting it in writing is that your letter would have to be acknowledged and you will receive a response. Send your letter recorded delivery and retain a copy for future reference.In the meantime, this would also enable you to register this loss on your tax return as capital loss on an investment, to be offset against future capital gains. Make sure you have supporting documents to prove your investment. Don't part with any more money.I hope this is helpful and gives you some comfort.
