  1. My wife was scammed by a woman called Aida Amanda Atan. In June 2015,this woman persuaded my wife to invest $10000 in her business called Amanda Consultancy and Training. She showed my wife financial statements proving she made huge profits.To seal the deal, she also promised to pay my wife the capital with dividends starting from July 2015 and will fully repay the $10000 within one year. But after receiving the money,the woman never pay anything and gave many excuses to avoid payment. Her excuses include her father's death, then her uncle's death, then her customer's cheque bounced etc. My wife's money is lost in this scam and we cannot do anything about it. Please be careful of such investment scams which is too good to be true.
