  • Property Training/Mentoring

    Uncovering the scammers - company accounts

    All

    I have received an influx of unsolicited offers to train or mentor me of late.

    On the surface, the potential trainers and mentors offering their services appear to have amassed a huge amount of experience and some of them in a very short time period.

    Whilst I do want advice on various things, I do need it to come from credible and verified sources. As a matter of routine I have now started to look at the accounts of the companies of these people on the companies house website (very easy to do and free).

    https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk

    In doing this I have found that many of the so-called successful entrepreneurs do not have the accounts to back up their claims. (I do acknowledge that some people may hold property in their own names or other structures).

    The attached provides an overview of company sizes:

    https://www.gov.uk/annual-accounts/micro...-companies

    If anyone is unsure of who they are dealing with, or want to see if the numbers back up their stories, a quick check can help.

    I also look at linked in to establish an individuals track record, again this sometimes reveals some surprising results.

    I'm interested to hear any other ways in which people do their people/ company due diligence before committing money to training and mentoring?
