Investors Management Co
April 11, 2014Here are notes we took when we were contacted by an Aimfair member:
First I have determined that the telephone number on their website is not located on the street listed as their company address. They list the Texaco Tower as their address, but all three numbers are located on Felicity between Magazine and Laurel Streets, not Poydras Street.
Secondly, the website was created on March 20, 2014 and expires on March 20, 2015. Following information is publicly available:
Thirdly, I called the building management company for 400 Poydras Tower. There is no company listed as a tenant in the building, nor has there ever been one.

We do not recommend wasting your time on these guys.

Bob, check this out. I checked the website and it is there ... but this can't be real.
Trying to figure out how far I can go without being committed to my money.
Let me know your thoughts.

We are noticing interesting new trends here.
- The most recent correspondence from cold callers contains a Confidentiality Notice. Ask your attorney if this notice is legal. Our speculation is it is not. It was sent cold without the recipient making a formal a request for the information. Does this place the correspondence in the public relm? What is covered? The offer? The fact that the offer was made? The fact that the ficticious company issued an offer? Do recipients of cold call solicitations have the right to perform their due diligence? It seems the person being called should have some rights too. Maybe recipients of such solicitations should respond to the calling party in an email somethiing like "....sure send it on but I do not agree to keep any information you send confidential."
- Ask your attorney if any correspondence from the sender is confidential to begin with.
- Note: These cold callers are accomplished "phishers" and ask for confidential information from you. Do not give someone you do not know any information about your contract ownership! Now THAT information IS CONFIDENTIAL!
- In spite of their attempts to generate confidence and come across as "real", these sales people do not provide any direct, truthful addresses that are linked to the telephone and fax numbers they state in their websites and provide in their correspondence.
