The entities listed below are not registered to trade in, or advise on, securities or exchange contracts in BC.

Boyd Clark Resource Capital Solutions claims to specialize in providing financial services to entrepreneurs and businesses requiring up to $2 million in financing. Furthermore, the address listed on Boyd Clark Resource Capital Solutions’ website does not exist.

Fanrong Capital, purportedly with an office in Hong Kong and an offshore office in Panama, claims to provide hedge fund management through different investment strategies. Fanrong Capital was added to the Investment Caution List after a British Columbia resident received an unsolicited e-mail message.

Economists & Lawyers, which purports to have an office at the Spanish Embassy in the United Kingdom, claims to offer a private placement program with high monthly returns. Economists & Lawyers was added to the Investment Caution List after they sent an unsolicited e-mail message to a British Columbia (BC) resident.

They are also affiliated with an on-line casino, Infinity 2 Global HK.
