Toronto online investment company scams victims out of thousands

Investment company Premier POS Solutions Inc. in Toronto promises their clients at least 20% return on the investment but leaves them empty-handed. Multiple complaints have been reported online (BBB Business Review). The investment scam resulted in losses of thousands of dollars.

Names working at Premier POS connected to online scams

The business was incorporated 1 year ago in 2015. Most victims invested an initial $11.000 in November 2015 and they were promised a return of $200. They only received one disbursement after their investment and the communication with the company stopped. They were in contact with different employees, under which Daniel Smith, Jeffrey Brian / Brian Jeffrey (Executive Accounts), Syed Jafry (President) or Abdul Khan (Director) (complaints at 411). These names seem to be connected to more online scams, for example Khan who is reported in a job offer scam (Scamwarners) and Smith in a romance scam (Scam site).
