I lost a substantial amount of money to a stockbroker called

This answer was rated:

I lost a substantial amount of money to a stockbroker called I contacted Roshental Law and have been working with a Dr Olsen there. In August of this year, allegedly he took them to court in Switzerland and won a settlement for me of £217,400. This money was then lodged in an account in Cyprus, but before I could access it, some 6-7weeks later, apparently FSMsmart lodged a counter claim and Roshental Law is now looking for additional money to fight the case. Even though this case was billed as no win no fee, I was asked to pay £20,000 once the case was "won" and another £10,000 to the Cyprus bank as a service charge. Effectively, I have paid Roshental Law in access of £30,000 and they are now looking for more money. Could you please advise?

I would be concerned. They don't even own their domain name

It is owned by

As such I would be concerned about paying more money.

It sounds like a scam to me. You should pay you will pay into Escrow

If they refuse you know its a scam.

Escrow hold onto the money until they do the work. If they wont do it, then you know for sure.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
