It would seem that they have managed to have the other review that was on this site taken down... I am still owed a large sum of money and I know at least ten other people who are as well...

If anyone has any information on these two please let us know. advice@dr.com.

Thank you all for your comments, please keep the information coming.

Parmafey Int (www.parmafey.com) and Balquidder Advisors (www.balquidder.com) are one and the same company run by Alec Maclaren/Alex Mcgrory (www.bigfishcreditors.com) and Allan Canning.

They have a history of misleading investors and not paying there staff.

I as others are currently owed high sums of money by them, they seem to be winding up there current companies (maybe they have ripped off so many people they have burned these companies (websites below). As far as I can tell Alec Maclaren is living in Javea Spain and Allan Canning is in Glasgow. All the telephone numbers for the companies are no longer working but the websites are still up, the only number on the website that is working is the Bulgarian office number, how ever that seems to be a number to an ex-employee who said that he is very keen to talk with either Alec or Allan.

They have no license to give financial advise in Europe, Middle East or Asia. Be very careful if you have contact with either of them...

Scottish police (fraud quad) have proved to be utterly useless so far. I have seen letters stating that there's very little they can do. A visit in person may be far more effective.

It isn't possible to imagine just how useless the legal system can be and the highest possible profile investigation involving Glasgow Rangers Football Club resulted in seven men being charged with fraud. Six of them predictably walked almost right away and the seventh was found not guilty after a long and costly trial.

Alec a big Celtic Fan boasted to his friends, staff and family about his contacts at Rangers and Mr Morgan his friend and former co Director is also a friend of the former Chief Accountant at the Club. Mr Morgan features by name in "Rangers do the bouncy".

Dear Frank the action group have almost given up on Alec and Allan being charged and brought to Court, because Alex/Alec's file is gathering dust at the Crown Office according to an offshore investor who allegedly lost his $1,200,000 pension fund investing in Alec's Big Fish.

The creditors action group reckons that Allan Canning is just another one of Alec's Patsy's, but Frank you can judge for yourself after you have questioned his friends about him at the Pipework's all male Sauna in Glasgow. If Allan, as someone suggested is bankrupt he will have learned this protection trick from Alec. If charged with anything Allan's defence lawyers will be paid courtesy of Legal Aid.

hi he has a caravan in balquhidder braes in lochernhead but not there very often as he has not paid site fees

to frank #1348858

He must be short of cash!

to WazzedOff #1351751

Maybe he fell out with his friends at Pipeworks.

The recent comment makes sense that Allan Canning's Caravan is in Balqhidder which is a name in his Company.Alec MacLarens former Facebook friend owned a hotel in a village nearby, but it was all boarded up the last time a member of our action group was in the area.

Canning could have frequented this area as a bus driver for a tour company.

If Canning really is bankrupt he will not be allowed to continue as a Director of a Company and Alec as a former bankrupt who never turned up at his Bankruptcy Court Hearing knows all about this as he was not discharged from his bankruptcy within the normally accepted time period because he failed to meet the Acountant In Bankruptcy (AIB) and sign his undertaking.

Alec never faces up to his responsibilities and the AIB is not obliged to enforce an undertaking, just like Companies House have no powers of investigation.Never mind the competency of the Fraud Police the Law of the Land is incredibly inadequate to deal with Internet fraud.

Mr Canning would appear to be bankrupt according to the Accountant in Bankruptcy's online Register of Insolvencies.
