Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Have you read the text that I sent earlier? I am wondering what steps can be made in terms of recovery of funds
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok

On what basis?

Why specifically?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
That I was took advantage of it was a significant sum.The business was not as stable as I was led to believe his brother told me he would sell the business at one stage and he told me my funds could be given back in the form of property this never happened he was a long standing friend and I did give him an inordinate amount of trust. His brother now runs a branch of this company in Eastbourne I found from a recent web search doing bridging finance(J.P.T.finance.

Actually this isnt my area.

I will opt out for others.
