Fighting Back

Update by user Oct 21, 2019

I continue to email Carl Ye at Pacific Tycoon with no response which is so frustrating all I want is to get my money back

Original review posted by user Sep 21, 2019
My father invested in Pacific Tycoon and since his death I have been trying to get Pacific Tycoon to buy back the containers with no success. Just like many other investors I have emailed with no response from the buy back team. I then resort to calling the Pacific Tycoon buy back team at expense to myself and I just feel that I am being given the run around. Being so frustrated I have sent an email to ilt@adm.icac.org.hk (Independent Commission Against Corruption) whether they will be of help anything is worth a go. Today I received an email from them asking me to call them on 0085225266366 to discuss the matter. It is a 24 hours hotline. Maybe it will help our case if more investors report this issue to the above email address and telephone number

Dissatisfaction and terrible customer service

1.1
Details
I bought 2 containers of $7000 and made no more than $100 in 7 years, furthermore I’ve not seen this $100 and I’ve been trying to get my investments back for 2 years which I was promised I could get my money back after 3 years. They don’t return calls or answer emails. I’ve spoken to numerous people and they tell me they are looking into my contract and will come back to me but don’t contact me and when I call I’m told no one is available to take my call.

Will not return our money after giving them notice. They say they re leased the containers. They keep giving us dates as in which month our money will be returned but we never receive it. We complain again and they just shift to another month about 6 months time. Still don’t receive it. It’s been over 18 months now we gave notice to them but still no money returned

Disappointed

You asked me for an update as to how things were going. PT about a year ago asked me to wait a whole year after I gave notice for repayment and then they will contact me. The year will be up at the end of September and will advise of any developments hopeful shortly after that time. My disappointment relates to the time lag in repayment and the low return after the initial 3 months or so. This review from WavyLittlePenguin

The scammer has stopped operating Pacific Tycoon and founded another scamming company named Davenport Laroche. There are too many complaints about this scammers and no doubt they will keeping changing names to operate.

Be careful with invitation for earning passive income by investing in shipping containers.

You can visit other complaints and will find out their location which is Vietnam. Not sure if the local authority can help you with this but you can submit a report, at least they will have to close their scamming activities for a while.

These people have stolen $111,000 of our hard earned money. My wife and I worked and saved our buts off for 5 years for this investment. They promise the return and when you ask politely, hey where is the payment. All of a sudden you are the bad person. We get angry with them they got angry with us. These people are bad people. Pacific Tycoon are absolutely disgraceful human beings. They still operate like nothing unfair happened. If you are reading this and undecided, keep your money. Call Pacific Tycoon and tell them you are not buying till all the bad reports are reversed. All these stories of money STOLEN BY PACIFIC TYCOON are real.

Hi You could try contacting Reclaws International ( from the USA)who might take up your case. They like 10% up front and then will take 10% of any monies recovered. They are acquainted with Pacific Tycoon and actually their opinion of them is not very high.

If you are not able to come up with the upfront fees you could try to do a deal for them.

By the way i am not in any way being recompensed for suggesting this company. They are acquainted with PT though which is an advantage.
