Recent I have had a conversation with Zina Sultana, who I met about a year ago and was new and fresh into property, who lived with her extended family and parents. She had no experience of property or understanding of finance or terms in property and told me she had no properties or done any deals ever. 3 months later she was on a band wagon claiming she had raised £21 million and talked about a portfolio she had under her name.
She has since then contacted me and told me some things I already knew and made sense.Firstly her and her Mentor Ansar Ali have had a dispute and gone their own way and haven’t done anything since March together over dispute over money and the fact that she was the face and front of the whole operation with all the blame being place on her by students who paid for courses and were dissatisfied which each student paid around £10,000 for.
She went on to confess while under LCA, they haven’t undertaken one development or deal yet, most them went wrong as people usually refused to use their solicitor who was a one man band, on top of a chicken and chip shop in Essex, who was struck off all the lending panels as well.Also she felt Ansar was trying to screw every penny out of every deal.Secondly she went onto say that they never raised £21 million it was a story made up to sell property courses and entice investors. She felt while she was selling the story Ansar kept putting up adverts on fb, “seeking urgent investors” which was undermining her.She also explained the whole story was created and promoted on FB with the help of Abdul Shukur S and S media.They went ahead and promoted it everywhere to a point people bought into it and people came into their so called movement.Victims were persuaded to go onto courses or pay for courses through loans or borrowing, on the hope that they can make their money back. The course was based on how she successfully raised the money (£21 million) and mind set, in order to teach people she read many books and webinars to prepare herself. At which point they had sold over £60,000 of courses to people who bought their story thanks to Abdul Shukur promoting them.Despite knowing that the whole story was false, there was no real investors and he was promoting them and their courses and even on linkedin takes responsibility of selling their courses thanks to his social media promotions.
But after the students undertook the courses on how to make millions and raise money, they started to make complaints and ask for refunds, as she was the one heading the courses and teaching them was being asked for refunds. At which point she also confessed for the courses, despite charging £10,000 a course she was only getting £1,000 with the rest being paid to Mr Ali.She also mentioned that she was fully aware of Ansar’s background and history and worked with him as he supported her in the beginning.She also admitted they never had owned any properties or assets in LCA or any companies. The fact was they have never done a deal to date and she was fed up of it, as she was trying and not getting anywhere and the courses were falling apart and the courses were their only income.
She also admitted that, she was promoted heavily and all the events she went to she researched well in advance to know what she was talking about, as well as mentoring sessions with Shaheena Ali who is Ansar Ali's sister who provided her with mentoring and help with strategies. She also mentioned their office and operations was at Ansar's dads restaurant, which is Maharaja restaurant in Benfleet, Essex. Which is where they operated under, she also stated that all the meetings they had and hotels they were in was for the sole purpose of tagging and building up a profile on facebook.
She also mentioned they duped Rehman Aktar to promote them in Bahrain, dubai and UAE with huge promises, and they had a falling out after Aktar, after Aktar wanted to see evidence of the £21 million they raised, Which resulted in them blocking him and completely disassociating themselves with him.She also mentioned Sahreena Ali, PR Director at the Atlantis Palm Dubai, who is Ansar's other sister provided them with free accommodation at various hotels, as well as venues, people and clients which played into their story, of them meeting investors in dubai, staying at the Palm with investors, the whole luxury life style, expensive spending habbit's which played perfectly for all following them on fb.
She also admitted she was fully aware and made the whole £21 million story, to gain credibility and promote herself on fb and other mediums. At which point Zina went from being a employee begging for money of Ansar to a partner in business. This was heavily promoted largely through their Media guy Abdul Shukur who was fully aware that the whole thing was fabricated and continued to promote them and persuade other people on his fb network to pay for their courses and took credit for selling their courses.
Zina is now a mentor and public speaker for various organisations, on mind-set, women empowerment, entrepreneurship, and her career as a property developer. She cannot admit or tell the truth as all her current income comes from her previous success and experience with LCA, which is her foundations.She continues to teach others how to make millions and coach people despite not achieving anything herself. Zina claims this is her sole and honest income now. She also told me she still has no property and lives with her parents and brother, his wife and kids in Eastham in the same council house. She’s in the process of joining the new movement on making millions boot camp and would I consider teaching her about how to really make deals.
She has since split ways with Ansar Ali and there is no cross promotions between them or their old team. Though Abdul Shukur is still promoting Ansar and working on sourcing new partners and team for him.
I shall now let everyone to put it all together now, on how they created an amazing story and movement to sell. Shocking how a social media marketing guy can help create and sell a story that people give thousands away on and really make people believe something that is fabricated.
Just shows you how the internet can be used for evil as well as good..
The mugs who have been deceived; well that is just unfortunate
Crooks abound everywhere
Even on the internet!!
Caveat emptor as ever applies!
Well done for bringing this out in the open for all to see .
All that Glitters is not Gold
Learn Change and Adapt ?????
This should serve as a blueprint for how scams are created and people get sucked in by images of lavish lifestyles and talk of big JV deals. Everything was fabricated from day one and then social media was used to find victims. Thanks to AAA for creating this due diligence resources.I warned about Zina Sultana being a front for serial conman Ansar Ali back in February on Facebook.

vanessa fancy a curry at Maharaja's?
I just feel sad for the people who lost money as the emotional distress of financial loss should not be under-estimated.
Crazy & Crazy to think six people paid £10k each to learn "how to make millions and raise money".
That harsh sentence being, a fool and his money are soon parted. Especialy when we see the same story again and again.
(P.S. I dont understand why is Zina Sultana being so informative? plus this posted by an anonymous "3rd party account" of conversation. Last im saying... this may be BS?.. )

do your own due diligence and see what adds up and doesn't, plus she wanted a job so i told her to spill all the beans on everything before we go forward and she did. After hearing all of that, no way i am getting involved.
I see Zina's Linkedin profile still references her "job" at the grandly named London Capital Assets (UK) Ltd, director Ansar Ali. I love the UK bit.
Having just looked at this splendidly named organisation on Companies House I am not entirely surprised to see it has been compulsorily struck off having had an annual first gazette notice for strike off every year since its formation and no accounts, other than dormant company accounts, since formation.
The whole thing appears to be complete fantasy.
