I have been very silly , A company called "JOHNSTONE AND CARTER offered to sell collection of DIAMONDS if I paid them £20,000 to cover "LEGAL COSTS". . . when I did they said "they could get a lot more for them if I paid another £30,000 . . . . . To date I have paid them a total of £75,000. . .

Their Address is collection centre .


If I set up a meeting with "JOHJNSTONE AND CARTER STAFF members,

Could I arrest them and call "POLICE" on 999 ?

For what offence?

Why don't you just report it?
