If you are ever contacted by Pacific Tycoon, telling they purchase containers on your behalf, lease them out for you, promising high returns: either fixed 12% or fluctuating returns averaging 30% per year, you should really be cautious!!! Of course, salespeople will...

Every thing you have read is correct , multiple investors , including me , have been cheated with , now clearly a PONZI Scheme ........greatly reduced returns, practically no replies, PT solicitors ..... worse than useless , threating behaviour , taking money for containers with no returns and no reasons for delayed / no payments.......

this is not a creditable company in the least !!!!!

....stay clear !!!! PONZI is the word to latch on too.

Scammers

Much like everyone else, bought a number of containers 5 years ago with agreement that the investment would mature and my capital returned after 3 years. 3 years has been and gone and despite my best efforts to contact them to chase my money I am getting nowhere. Does anyone know if there are any investigations / group action against them?

User's recommendation: AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Refund

I want my investment back but also get no response from them, they are just scammers but still advertise their 'company' for investors! I've tried Caroline Conti and still receive monthly statements but that's all from these ***

User's recommendation: DO NOT INVEST.

Fascinating schemes

Pacific Tycoon is a scheme where an investment of $3k+ is paid for a container with a promise of a return which indeed is what you get. BUT... the return dramatically diminishes yearly so that only about $ 1.5k+ of the money is ever returned in so-called dividends. These dividends exponentially drop to a few cents per month and so can be sustained for years whilst the remaining $ 1.5K never has to be returned. Of course when the dividends don't add up to anything substantial there is no need to deposit it in a bank, so the net result is simply receiving a statement saying you are paid when nothing physically is ever transferred. Clever.

I wish to sell my 20 containers, have had no satisfaction for 6 years. I wish to make some progress.

Bought 23 containers valued at around 25,00 pounds. Asked for them to be sold under the terms of the contract with little or no response.

User's recommendation: Don't get involved.

This company and all those who worked for it should be jailed for life. If you are trying to recover your assets from this company contact Reclaws international as they are familiar with these fraudsters and may be able to help.

Lost money scan artists

Pacific Tycoon - Lost money scan artists
I was duped by this company they kept me sweet for sometime, I now realise it was because they wanted me to give them a reference which at the time, I freely did. All along I thought it was a legit operation but have since learn no containers exist. They are just criminals. Hopefully they will get their just deserts

User's recommendation: Do not invest.

No resolution and no direct contact from Pacific Tycoon staff.Pacific Tycoon have new lawyers who contacted me with a very basic reply, no solution and negative response which is typical.Please be aware this is not a legitimate company.

Dear Alan What is the update on your case, I too have been scammed in a similar way as you with 28 containers from South America to China. Next thing was told some of the containers are in Europe,some in Africa and middle east. I am looking into taking legal action against them however due to non email responsive I thought they don't exist anymore but seems they are continuing trading Thanks Flo
