Finansinspektionen (the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority) has today published this statement in order to warn investors against dealing with unauthorised firms.
Caltherm Co. Private Equity LLC has not received authorisation from Finansinspektionen and therefore is not entitled to provide financial services in Sweden. Finansinspektionen has not received any notification of cross-border activities from other EEA countries.
Reportedly, representatives from Caltherm Co. Private Equity LLC contact investors through unsolicited telephone calls and offer to buy their holdings of shares in an American OTC-company. Investors must first pay a fee in advance (“security deposit”) to secure the deal. This appears to be an advance fee fraud scheme. They also refer to the fake regulator, Committee of Regulation and Liquidation on Private Ventures to increase its credibility.
Caltherm Co. Private Equity LLC has a website (www.calthermco.com) using the following contact information:
