    I saw this url in a google ad:

    Code:
    http://www.offshore-bank-account.eu
    This look pretty good, almost too good to be true. I did my homework, and I found that the site use to have this domain: ***

    I've found only one scam complaint, and it don't seems to be really a scam, more like a customer that ordered without reading the site very well:

    Code:
    http://www.scaminformer.com/scam-report/going-offshore-jorg-gebhardt-thiemo-borger-scammers-and-c29599.html
    PS: I've been reading the site for almost an hour, and it has a widget with online guest and online users. The guest number of users varies, but the users number is always 30. Please as you read this post, check if this number is still 30, if he reaming 30 for an entire day, will the the proof that site is an scam

    THanks

    We have attempted to obtain an account without success. They promise a fee refund if the Bank wont accept application but they just refuse to answer email now. All they provide is a link to a Banking organisation and leave it to you to complete all steps. A clear scam!!

    Any website with that cheesy '100% satisfaction guaranteed' is most likely a scam/ripoff site.

    Trust me I have noticed a connection and that hacker safe comodo logo is fake also its just a image from Google.

    Another give away is the contact page it is just a form. Why are they so eager to hide their identity, why don't they have telephone service or even just a bloody email address.

    Just the general layout of the site and everything gives it away easy, compare it to other banking sites this is just some simple template shit.

    To find that kind of services is really hard. There are a lot of scams. And there are no easy way to find it. The best would be to get testimonials from people who used some services.

    By the way, as I know HSBC is offering offshore banking services, but I guess it is pretty expensive.

    Is it so difficult to call a bank and ask? Just look at a big transnational bank in a tax free country and you are most likely to be safe.

    All fake, there is no such solution in today's banking industry. At least you have to provide ID and a utility bill! No bank regardless where it is located, will open an bank account without at least a ID and utility bill.

    Yes I do realize it:biggthump but it won't help you with the DD check, if it is a true bank they want information on Ultimate Beneficial Owner, don't try to fool anyone to believe they can cheat the well established banks.

    that site is a fraud site, probably from the same guy on talkgold that was pimping offshore-privacy.com or whatever before he ran off with everybody's money

    the only site i've used is slogold.net and hkease.com who advertises on lowtax
    the hong kong girl is the cheapest. slogold i suspect is merely reselling somebody else

    There are many scams out there. I have personally been defrauded, have been given accounts that were not really offshore, but passed off as, but through my research I've found some reputable vendors.

    I bought this website off the Deep Web. I thought it was too good to be true too. I looked up reviews, but seems this solves it. Looking to open an Offshore Acct very soon as well. PM me if you know anything.

    Thanks!

    There are tons of reliable providers, but hey, if your search lead you to talkgold and you don't do research you will be smeared into scams.. the entire forum is under investigation by the feds.

    You can't just trust anyone to do your offshore incorporation. Your best bet is to find a lawyer in your country with that exact expertise. They have to understand your home country's laws, to then help you with the laws of the offshore country that your company will operate in.

    If you're located in the US, feel free to reach out and I can connect you with my lawyer. He's the man!

    The most flexible banks are in the Baltic states, especially Latvia. Just google for Latvian Banks. Usually, they have no minimum deposit unlike Swiss banks where you need minimum CHF 100.000 to CHF 250.000.

    Why pay a service with the risk that it is a scam?
