I was introduced to a "program manager" for a Private Placement Program. The programs he offered sounded great but upon going online and researching it seems I have stumbled across a ton of information regarding these programs both good and bad. I guess the question truly is. Are these programs real? or are they fake. Because US govt websites say that all private placement programs dealing with instruments and a huge return in a short amount of time is a scam and not real. OR are they just saying this so people don't do it???? Interesting case study I'm sure.

Hi Shannon,

The term private placement is a legitimate term used for legitimate transactions between companies, people, corporations and other private entities. It is the buying and selling of various bankable instruments usually owned by or from non-publicly traded companies or private entities.

However, there are legitimate private placement opportunities or platforms where investors can earn an excellent return in under 52 weeks. Most real platforms require a minimum of 100 million. There are some that require less. But be particularly wary of any that accepts less 10 million. In any case one must perform his/her due diligence on these opportunities and those who offer them.

There are certain dos and dont's that we always tell clients regardless of what they learn via their DD.

1. Never move your funds into someone's private account.
2. Escrow accounts are to be heavily scrutinized if they are a requirement.(in our opinion an escrow account or deposit is never a requirement with legitimate PPOs)
3. Moving funds is risky, ask why, contact the bank, insist on face to face meetings in the bank where the transaction is to take place. A bank official should also be available.
4. Ask about credentials, why does this person have the program manager title, what kind of experience does the trader have?
5. Returns: While these platforms can offer some excellent returns some simply exceed the realm of possibility.
6. Understanding, in order for you make sound investments you must understand how your returns will be accomplished. Do not be afraid to ask questions until you are completely satisfied and have a clear concise understanding of who, what, when and how.

thank you for your explanation and clarification. the problem I have is when you try and do any kind of due diligence they come back and say well we aren't allowed to solicit and were not allowed to give out any client information. So I say ok how do I know this works? Am I really to take this man on his word? No offense but I am an honorable person but lets be honest here how many people are honest businessmen these days. So even if you have the capital and you engage this particular group when you get your paperwork they slap you with a secrecy contract that is like an inch thick. So basically if I do get screwed and my money is stolen. I can't say or talk or do anything because of the paperwork I signed. And to make matters worse all of the US gov't websites say this market doesn't exist and its all a scam. which gets me really confused because either the US gov't doesn't want you to do this because then everybody would do it. Or it really DOESN'T exist. I have access to friends and colleagues that have billions. but I can't put my name and reputation on the line without knowing that this market is indeed real and there is reputable companies out there doing it. If everything is that secret I probably won't ever get in touch with the right people.

You will always see various viewpoints on this subject. Due dilligence on the investor's part is key.

Shannon, yes they do exist and yes they are very private. You will never get any references because it is just that "PRIVATE". The U.S. government will never admit to it because if everyone got in, it would cause chaos and the banks would not be able to do their overnight sweeps and they would lose a ton of money. There should be absolutely no risk to a clients money, no escrow accounts, no third party accounts and no JV's. First of all besides POF up front, no one should ever ask you to do anything with your money until you go through all the procedures and meet the principal face to face, then you receive a contract and then you decide whether or not you want to proceed. Your money should always remain in your own account and you should be the only one to block it if you decide to move forward. These programs are for very SAVY INVESTORS ONLY and only a SAVY investor will move forward. If you see anyone soliciting these programs then that is a scam. It is ILLEGAL TO SOLICIT these programs. If you or anyone else would like more info you can contact me at

Shannon, I can show you PROOF that through my sources, they work.

Before OUR underwriting will assist with any deal, POF will always be required. There is no way around it. There is to much fraud going on and will not risk their information be copied, pasted, and clients money stolen.

If you have a true client who wishes to purchase Gold, Gems, MTN'S, SBLC'S, BG'S, ETC. They must provide POF First.

This is the reason these clients don't have their deals close, it is because many of them are out to take advantage of people. I apologize, however we will not be a party to that, nor have the time to provide information that could be used to defraud a client.

If after reading this, you are still interested in representing your clients, then you may contact me and I can send you a list of programs that we have to offer.

Its good that you are doing your due diligence. Education is the key and the proof is in the bank...no pun intended!

Good luck with your future endeavors.

P.S. Brett from N.Y. says it best...those are the corect procedures for most programs...

Shannon-
If you would like to speak off board email BPVLLC@aol.com
I have to say "real" programs are TRANSPARENT- no broker chain, JV agreement, no upfront fees, and the client always is in control of their money.
If anyone tells you differently...run run run
I am not a broker- do not want anything, commisssion, or agreement. Give your word you are real and I will send you to two to choose. Both have proven track records- no problem!

Real is only realy if the actual trader has the ability to buy and sell on his own.

Technically Shannon, you could create your own trade simply by buying and reselling treasuries or bonds or anything you can get your hands on.

Trade "platforms" are real. Sadly, most people claiming to have a "platform" in reality only have a contact of a contact.

As for safety and reputation, that's easy to protect. There are a couple of ways to protect the funds you are placing in the traders hands and guarantee protection. Certain trades like Forex are risky. However, setting up your own buy-sell is a great way to protect yourself.

100M Forex Platform: You IP shows "El Monte, California". Isn't that one of the poorest areas in the Los Angeles county?

If you are making sooooo much money, MOVE ! Otherwise, you appear as a flake bragging about nothing.

CML: Re. conducting their own buy/sell. Is like telling the man who plenty of money..."Hey, you can buy a Boeing 747 and fly it yourself...even if you don't know how" ! Dah!

Buy/sell transactions are solely for those who know EXACTLY what to buy and how quickly to dump it (sell it). Your advice was way off.
