Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?

Don't use their service, they can not be trusted.

-          On Nov 21, 2019 Jeff Ray from General Corporate Service emailed me information about the Oversea Trust set up cost and overview. On 12/07/2019 I paid the firm and Jeff Ray emailed me  three  PDF files ( Nevis Due Diligence Checklist, 5 pages),(Due Diligence Form for Cook Island trust Checklist, 14 pages) (Cook Island Sample Completed 15 pages)

-           Since the content asking a lot of personal info and basically I am signing over all my properties to an oversea trustee, I don’t feel comfortable and skeptical about it and I remember an article from Ripoff Report mentioned about the same thing. I was considering if I should procude or not.

-          On Dec 12th, 2019. I received an email from General corporate Service telling me "in process” which really made me puzzled, because  we haven’t filled  any of the paper works or submitted any forms that they requested.

-           General corporate Service has my name and address, but I have never provided them my passport / passport number/ bank info, etc.  How can they setting up an oversea company/trust without my ID/ legal document and signature?

-          And according to the General corporate Service, we need to have all the info email to them first and mail in all the original copy in order to set up. Therefore, I have reason to believe either they are not setting up a legitimate oversea trust for me by the time I called  back in Dec of 2019 or they have done nothing yet which just a lie.  

-          I sent them "cancellation notice” on Dec 16th & 19th 2019 & Jan 6th, 2020 with no reply.

-          I filed a dispute with my Credit card Issuing Bank, the bank disputed the charge.

-          But on 3/26/2020 the General Corporate Service re-billed me and provided my Bank with a lot of false information. And a piece of paper (can't really see, it's a copy from credit card issuing bank) that they claimed the trust already set up, again, I really don’t think the oversea government (cook island & Nevis) will allow a person to set up a trust without verity the identity, and a copy of passport and signature, not to mention, at the beginning, Jeff told me that I have to complete all the applications  and email it to him,  and also  need to complete the following:

-   

Quoted from the Emil Jeff sent to me on Nov 21, 2019

·  Completed Questionnaire - which includes the following – Sent after order

·  Client Assessment Data in questionnaire

·  Affidavit of Solvency
Trust Information Document
The Money Laundering Control Act (initial in questionnaire

·  Deed of Indemnity  in questionnaire

·  A Notarized copy passport

·  Original documentary evidence of your address (an original recent utility bill, credit card

·  Bank statement – must be the original rather than a photocopy).

-          ·  A bank reference letter

-          ·  Name for Company

·  Shipping Address

·  Billing address

·  Manager/Members(s) Name and addresses

·  Notarized copy of Passport

·  Notarized copy of utility bill

·  Description of Business

·  Reference from a bank you have a personal account with

·  Purpose of Company specific details of the type of business

-          ·  Source of funds to Capitalize Company

-           

Please understand I have done none of above and they managed to set an oversea trust for me anyway, which is unbelievable.  I have reason to believe the firm is a fraud. I am in middle of the dispute and also filled complaints  with  Office of the District Attorney, BBB etc.

Order was already complete when you changed your mind

Dear Sam,

I am sorry that you were not 100% satisfied with our most recent transaction. You have ordered from us multiple times so we were surprised by this entry.

You placed an order for a trust. This is a very expensive and time-consuming process including attorney fees, expensive non-refundable government fees and trustee fees. Once you signed our agreement to give us the go-ahead we laid out significant sums to fulfill your order, as is our ethical responsibility. We had no idea that you would later change your mind.

Moreover, in order to fulfill your past orders, you have already given us the legally required know-your-client information that we must have in order to complete an international entity that you ordered previously. So, we already had all of your personal information, as you call it.

The definition of fraud is "wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain." It is quite obvious that we did none of this. You signed a contract that clearly laid out what we were going to do for you. We did it. Then, after we spent a lot of money to fulfill your order, you changed your mind. Your own credit card company agreed with us. So, including that word in the title seems like an attemt to damage our good reputation in a transaction that your own bank agreed was valid.

The agreement that you, yourself, signed states "I understand that this transaction is non-refundable, since GCS incurs non-recoverable costs and/or government fees."

Even your own credit card company agreed with us. No, we did not charge your card again. Your own credit card company simply put the charge back on your account because they agreed with us that it was a legitimate, valid charge that you agreed to in writing.

So, if you have questions, feel free to call. We are gla to help and are sorry that you changed your mind after we had already fulfilled your order.
