Secure Platform Funding or Scam Loan Funding on the Rise?


Some evidence has come to light pointing towards the possibility of a fraudulent scheme in the financial industry, in the case of Mr. Bruce Green and Secure Platform Funding. This, some material suggests, may be an advanced fee scheme.

In recent years, we have seen an increase in white collar crime, specifically in investment fraud toward loan funding schemes. Time and time again, there have been two basic schemes: the advanced fee scheme and the escrow-based scheme. A common example for an escrow-based scheme is the well-known and documented case of iVest International Holdings, Inc., which ended with a guilty verdict and a six-year sentence for its CEO, Mr. Graulich.

An advanced fee scheme, which may be the model under which Secure Platform Funding operates, produces smaller losses than an escrow account scheme, but can produce the same losses for its victims. In the case of Secure Platform Funding, the company charges an advanced service fee for arranging third party loan funding. In one case, Mr. Green allegedly claimed to represent the Bank of Bahrain and further claimed to be involved with other institutions, to defraud a victim of $50,000 relating to a promised $10M loan and other banks instruments.

To establish this persona, Mr. Green allegedly produced various documents such as bond transfers, letters of credit, and SWIFT MT760 that he claimed to have been involved with. Then, Mr. Green supposedly persuaded his victim to initiate a $50,000 deposit into an escrow account held by a registered attorney in Geneva, Switzerland.

Yet the catch was that there was no loan. The $50,000 in escrow never made it back to the victim. When asked to provide a contact person at the Bank of Bahrain willing to corroborate his position at the bank, or any other central bank, Mr. Green declined. Every financial institution in the world has a compliance department catering solely to the demands based upon them by FinCEN’s FATF initiatives. A request with FINRA did not produce any records of Mr. Green’s involvement in the financial industry.

Fraudulent investment scams like the case described above are currently under investigation by the FBI. For a more detailed list of investment schemes and contact details please refer to the FBI Honolulu Field Office.

Mr. Green is currently operating through Secure Platform Funding, and is involved in multiple operations mostly listed in Nevis. Due to trouble with the Nevis Financial Services Regulatory Commission, Secure Platform Funding has moved operations to Marshal Islands. This move was declared after allegations surfaced around the company’s fraudulent history.

    Secure Platform Funding is Discrediting the Competition and is LYING TO CUSTOMERS
    I came across a clever scam by a fake financial organization called Secure Platform Funding – they’ve been posting all over the Internet trying to convince low-level investors and small time firms to buy into their bank guarantees with bogus claims of extreme riches and millions in secure funding for practically nothing – as little as $50,000 for millions in returns. The thing is, they’re exceptionally shady – I first came across them when they cold called me through email attempting to solicit an investment, and I realized that they were full of it when looking into their details.

    They changed addresses thrice never having a legitimate office, the web is full of complaints surrounding their dubious practices, and now they’re targeting lots of legitimate, real firms and institutions trying to cast them in a black light in order to distract from the fact that they scam people for a living.

    Their “banned asset providers” list is nothing more than a blackmailing scheme, as names come and go on the list – they’re contacting people and trying to get them to pay money in order to make their names go away!! Just have a look at some of the other complaints online of their suspicious behavior:

    There are at least a dozen other links from the past few years, and they’re STILL around doing this stuff.

    Bank Instrument Providers Secure Platform Funding Spreading FALSE Information, Scamming People

    So to anyone who hasn’t already heard about it, please be wary of https://www.secureplatformfunding.com/, Mr. Bruce Green, and anyone from that company trying to contact you for whatever reason. Plenty of people have tried to buy financial instruments or receive funding from them, and more often than not all that this has created is a situation where people are left paying thousands of dollars while waiting for an investment that is never coming. It’s a scam, and a lot of people have paid dearly because of it: https://www.scamguard.com/secure-platform-funding/

    In an attempt to throw people off track, SPF likes to say that anything negative about the company is a result of “jealous competitors”, yet really they’re the ones in the habit of slandering the competition, posting false accusations online against legitimate institutions in order to gain the confidence of their would-be victims:
    https://www.secureplatformfunding.com/banned_assets_and_financial_instrument_providers/

    Secure Platform Funding is a scam. Their website is a dead giveaway – for one of the “largest and greatest” in the industry, it’s suspect that they’re using a low-quality website on a shared server while doing all they can to hide their information. They don’t have a real physical address and have had to change their fake location twice, once because they don’t exist in the UK at all and again because the financial authorities at Nevis recognized them for the scam they are. Do NOT do business with these people, and if you’re on one of their lists, notify people that they are slandering their competitors.

    Watch Out: Potential Scammers at Secure Platform Funding

    So I’m pissed – I’m sitting here €40.000 short because of https://www.secureplatformfunding.com, they took my money without providing anything in return, and I am still waiting for a reply from their CEO Bruce Green. They contacted me about an investment in a leased bank guarantee I should make for the potential gain of millions through the resale of the lease, buying bank guarantees from the Bank of Bahrain to the tune of a few thousand euros. At first it was suspicious how they were talking about turning thousands into millions, but they began listing off certifications and qualifications and they even sent me scans of documents that they said proved their legitimacy – after a while, they did seem very legit. They sent me a lengthy document I had to fill out in order to “qualify” for their program, but they did not specify what qualifications I had to meet.

    I filled out their forms, wired the money, and waited for the paperwork necessary to prove the lease. And I waited. And waited. Nothing

    DO NOT do business with Secure Platform Funding, or anyone affiliated with their location and contact details. If anything, they are terrible with customers
