Guys, I am a new user so please be gentle :D These folks Global Private Equity Partners are very visible right now in the private equity scene and I am in early discussions with them about some projects.

On the upside any fees to pay can be done through an Escrow agent and I am well enough equipped to dodge any bullets that might throw up. However in a general sense other than Google Ads they are fairly off radar and this always raises suspicions. I have done the usual whois checks etc and my gut feeling is that they are to be treated cautiously, but I just wanted to check if anyone has had any real life experience with them?

Many thanks for any helpful advice.

The website raises a lot of rd flags. They claim to be a Global financial institution but fail to list any physical business location. Why are they hiding this information?
Before proceeding you need to find out if they are registered to offer financial services in your are. Make the checks yourself or hire a due diligence firm.
Always pick the escrow company your self .

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle or mentions Cameroon

I found a listing on a Belgian website: https://fr.yelp.be/biz/global-private-e ... s-new-york

That listing gives a New York address, but GPEP is not registered with the NYS Department of State Division of Corporations

Telephone 1-855-232-4100 is non-geographic

Their Wealth Management page
http://globalprivateequitypartners.com/ ... management
has a lot in common with this other company's website
http://www.mcgrennox.com/global_wealth_management.php
which may be purely coincidental.

NEW YORK - Feb. 14, 2017 - PRLog -- Global Private Equity Partners has completed $732 Million Financing For Oil Producer

As one of the world's leading and most diverse financial services firm, Global Private Equity Partners serves the needs of our clients by offering a world-class project funding platform coupled with straightforward, intelligent advice.

Global Private Equity Partners has successfully completed a $732 million ten-year non-recourse project financing for large Oil Producer.

"We got responses from 18 of the leading global lenders - both banks and commodity traders and we selected Global Private Equity Partners," CEO of the Oil Company said.

It was Global Private Equity Partners' flexible terms that ensured the feasibility of this project.

Through an accelerate growth strategy, the Company aims to become a stand-alone operator in oil and gas exploration and production by 2019 and a "world class operator" by 2026, CEO said.

Hands up if you can name the unnamed "large Oil Producer".

Now compare it with this press release

which is an obvious scam site
It must be SO annoying when scammers steal your material!

Many thanks Photosensitive. This is all very helpful information and confirms many of the suspicions I had. I think tread cautiously is now becomming run away!!

Terminator5, you got me. Finding Global Private Equity Partners was the luckiest day of my life. It made me an instant millionaire and I now plan to leave my wife and family and start a new gay life with their delightful representitive Rob. We will live off oil money and charitable donations. :beer:
