BEWARE of NB International – review

NB International websiteIn this review we explain why you should stay away from NB International and its trading offer.

NB International offers five trading accounts that are supposed to get you up to 8% returns per month. Presumably thanks to algorithmic trading systems.

Is this offer genuine?

Stay away

We found several major problems with NB International.

Not regulated, illegal

OfficesNB International claims to have offices in Dublin, London and Cardiff. This automatically means that in order to operate legally, it needs a licence form the Financial Conduct Authority.

But there is no NB International company registered and licensed in the UK to provide investment services. Which means that NB International is operating illegally, as a broker and as an investment advisor.

So, if you deposit money with the company, it will not be insured and you will not be compensated in case there are problems.

Fake performance

Dubious performanceAnother problem with NB International is that on its website it is showing monthly performances from 2016. They allegedly third party verified.

We could not find who supposedly verified them, so we have to assume they are not verified. What is even more important, the NB International website was created only in October 2017, se showing results from 2016 is very dubious.


NB International is not regulated, it is an illegal broker, we recommend staying away from it!

If you are interested in genuine trading, start on a free demo account with a regulated broker.

Nobody will make you money for free, you have to build your own strategy.

  1. I would dearly like to speak to you Charles Pearson as we are in the same boat as you and we may be able to exchange info that can help the police to catch these thieves. We have also been involved with Maxwell Asset Management and Payment Solutions Services, both scammers.
    My partner and I would like to join this group but I’m very wary of leaving my contact details.


    1. Maxwell contacted me and payment solution maxwell worked along beside them. I found payment solution service cloned a company payment solution ltd both had same address only the scammed company used the services at the end of their company name. On this i looked up FCA and the real company had a parent company called SMART DEBIT to which we called and were very nice and helpful said they had a few calls etc re Maxwell where mentioned and along with payment solution services and reported to the fraud police that they were coning there company details except their phn line number and also said they never heard of the peoples names asked. All of a sudden payment solution services their phone lines are down no website is this familiar!! The good thing fca have put up on their website and the real payment solutions are helping the police. If dealing with maxwell and going through the scam name of payment solution services and need more information i am sure the real company will be happy in letting you know the situation. You will get there number on FCA SITE under payment solution ltd, once on the page you eill see their parent company Smart Debit telephone number. Please note also the address as mrntionrd is the same as the scam company

    2. Hi Simon i think i am also in same boat as yoi. I dont know who you are dealing with at Maxwells would be happy to chat. Like you say the more gathering you never know as yourself my partner and i similar. You can get me on face book under yvonne jackson edinburgh and as yoy say reluctant to give any number at this time as maybe we can exchange in gathering onformation

  2. Anyone who is contacted by Sapien Asset Management about recovering money from NB international be ware as the company is dormant and the contact Oliver Price is a phoney. Any one who contacts you has got your details from NBI and will defiantly be a scam.. This is another cloning scam

  3. Hi Peter
    My Name is Peter Rastall and I to have been scammed by NB International. I carried out due diligence on the company and even spoke to the accountants (after carrying out due diligence on the accountants themselves) who signed off the accounts and they assured me that the company was genuine and they had been there accountants over 20 years and also vouched for the MD Elton Shane. It was only when there web site went down in January as well as their phone lines I asked my brother to visit their offices only to find that no one had heard of them. I then called the accountants again and spoke to the accountant who signed off the accounts who told me that they did not have a London office and in any case they weren’t an online trading company. they had therefore cloned the legitimate company of NB International. My balance with the company is currently 98K and my initial investment was 46.5K which I don’t think I will see again. I have sent you a request to join your group on FB

  4. Last year I was physically and emotionally in a bad place; right in the middle of this Oliver James-Passmore from NB International rang me and discussed the company and how it could help. I spent several days researching the company and found it was registered at Companies House and, according to what I could find, was an active functioning entity which even paid taxes so felt it a safe bet. I put my whole pension commutation and my life savings into it. All was fine until I tried to collect my dividends. Then the same experiences as you present here, happened. It became extremely stressful as I cannot live on my pension and needed the money. I was passed from person to person over the weeks, each becoming more aggressive and bullying until the final one, Martin Clark, shouted at me saying neither he nor the company wanted to deal with such a disagreeable client since when I have had anonymous emails and outright lies. They will not honour details which they gave me in writing, all of which I have kept. I also recorded the latter phone conversations (which I told them so that the recordings could be used legally). All my efforts so far have achieved nothing, though on their website I am continuing to make money. I refuse to give up chasing them yet and so am going to set up a Facebook group under my name, Peter Thomas, to try to get as many people as possible involved as that will give us much more leverage and support any media or legal action we choose to take. I have 2 friends who have also been caught and will join. Please would you John, Yvonne and Charles get in contact with the group and pass on the word in any way possible to increase its numbers. John Novak would you wish to join us? I assume from your comment that you have not been caught by them but it would be great if you would share your expertise. Maybe we can recover some of our money and also prevent it being shipped out of our country.

    1. Well I was scammed by these people good and proper. Lost a lot of money. I am being contacted weekly by asset recovery companies, everyone a scammer. Love to get these people to court or whatever.

    2. Hi Peter i have tried to find yoi facebook
      Page in having a chat. You will find me under my facebook name and from edinburgh

  5. Who has tried to close an account with NB-I – beware of the as they will say that before an account can be closed you need to settle and repay the “Corporate Funding “ amount that NB-I have given you – do not do this!

    Alarm bells have been ringing louder and louder over the last 9 months: ie no formal proper documentation, staff turnover, phone system failures, IT systems down, excuses for cash dividends not being paid, retrospective changes to Terms & Conditions – etc etc.

    I have been sucked into this operation by people using the names mentioned earlier on this site – Oliver James Passmore, Peter Chapman, Benjamin Wellington, Joseph Goldberg, Heather Bradbury and now a new set of individuals including names claimed as Martin Clark and Justin Clark.

    They claim to be at an office in the News Building at London Bridge – as shown on the website – however I did visit the office having requested a meeting with Oliver Passmore and Joseph Goldberg a few months ago, however the meeting was cancelled on the morning of the requested meeting – I had travelled from EDINBURGH – the office turned out to be a Regus Business Centre but they had no record of a resident business under the name of NB-International.

    If it’s too good to be true it’s probably not true.

    1. Hi Charles i am from Edinburgh to and though lots of people called on recovery i beleive there never where any recovery and how did all these companies get your details… i think Nb it is noted that a few weeks after a letter comes through the post yet never reeived a letter before and everyone gets contacted as they passed onto their scam team. Yes i have lost a lot of money i will just have to live with it and help all i can to the police or more importantly to the public. And beleive me there are other Nb international companies opening up wity different details which i beleive are all the same. All i can say what you have is fine in your pocket i learned these companies are just scammers wanting your money that they want not caring who they get it from hid behind masks to there families they have proper jobs

  6. Hi John is it possible for you to speak with you Like you I may have been scammed only the other day. I have tried to contact but of course no replies from the likes of Oliver, Benjamin and another guy called Christoper Black I am still not dying to believe this yet showing still the account but I just think it is a page up etc. I know an American company who can help but needs to speak to someone anyone who have gone through. Kind regards Yvonne

    1. Hi, just beware of recovery scams, the vast majority of recovery companies are scams. Consult your national financial regulator for advice.

  7. lost a lot of money with these people, Oliver, peter, Benjamin and best of all Hershal.
    Very cruel people took great fun at my expense. May interesting things happen to them.
