I was one of the people involved in the Carrick scam when Mr Fannin meet in the UK that Mr Featherby helped arrange, once I noticed I was being scammed I contacted the FCA and this is the response;
Thank you for your recent email to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regarding the companies Carrick-Wealth and Carrick-Capital.
As you are already aware, the FCA regulates most financial services in the United Kingdom. To protect consumers, we have a public financial services register which is a public record of all the firms and individuals that we regulate. Having searched our register, I can confirm that neither Carrick-Wealth nor Carrick-Capital are regulated and authorised by the FCA. I have included a link to the register should you wish to check this:
We suggest exercising caution as we are aware that there has been an incredible increase in scams and swindles and many have lost money, as a result of fraud. Therefore, I have attached a link to a webpage giving further details about scams and swindles the FCA is aware of. Our website also has hints and tips to help you protect yourself and stay safe.
I note that you have advised that the companies are primarily based in South Africa. As such, we advise contacting the relevant financial regulator in South Africa to establish if they are regulated to carry out business there.
I trust my response has clarified that Carrick-Wealth and Carrick-Capital are not regulated by the FCA to carry out business in the United Kingdom.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
