CETN Investigations ripped me off!

CETN Investigations - CETN Investigate - CETN Investigates completely ripped me off. Paid them over £ 500.00 to do a job on their so called no results, no fee service. They asked me for the money and then nothing! No report or communication! I called to chase and spoke with someone called Graham - he was SO abusive! Called me all sorts and denied that I paid them! Im a widow and retired - I cant afford to lose money like that and these people have got to be caught! I have reported this to the police and trading standards. They are well aware of him and are closing in as they say. Lets hope they put a stop to fraudsters like Graham (Bunten).

Ive just found out that the man behind this is called Graham Bunten - www.cetninvestgate.com - he was running gbinvestigate.com and then changed the name to vminvestigate.com (his wife initials). He has been scamming a LOT of people via his websites and I am sure there will be another one coming soon.

Everytime people catch up with him, the website changes! AVOID AVOID AVOID if you don't want to lose your money.

He makes all sorts of bold claims on his websites - no success, no payment, pay by bank for your safety etc but it is all a pack of lies - claims to have 800 year of experience too - really??? The authorities are catching up with this man and wife team!

It looks like I am not the only person who fell for this scam! This firm too over 900 pounds from me for a job on which they didn't deliver.

As with everyone else who has tried to complain to the owner, Graham Bunten, I received a barrage of abuse and threats! I have informed the police who have told me that they have received hundreds of complaints about this man and his websites.

Having looked into this myself, I have since seen that he was running a website called gbinvestigate.com - received MANY complaints and then suddenly changed it to VMinvestigate.com so he could try to hide - well Mr Graham Bunten - you haven't got away with this and once again, your scams have caught up with you. DO NOT TRUST CETN Investigations of Ashford kent - he uses a virtual office address in London!!

CETN Investigations - GB Investigate - VM Investigate

CETN Investigations - CETN Investigates - CETN Investigate - GB Investigates - VM Investigates - all the same company will all the same lies and deceit. I was completely ripped off by this lot and sadly, I didn't see the many complaints about them beforehand. There have been hundreds of Trading Standards complaints and Advertising complaints due to their misrepresentation and false claims. I lost hundreds of pounds and that seems to be just the tip of the iceberg with this lot. Th man behind this scam is Graham Bunten - he uses a variety of fake names in, what can only be described as an attempt to defraud people. Hundreds of years in business, professional memberships and licenses - all lies!! DO NOT TRUST THIS LOT!!!!! MANY more complaints on this page: https://www.complaintsboard.com/gb-investigate-b127725

I feel such a fool to have fallen for this lots scam! I paid them over 300 pounds for a job, which they said would be a no success, no payment service.

I paid and then got nothing from them! I called and called - eventually ai spoke with a bloke who called himself Mr Mitchel - i now know this man is called Graham Bunten - he denied that i even paid them anything and was extremely rude and abusive! Searching the internet afterwards (sadly) it seems that I am not the only one to fall for this scam. Its about time he was closed down for good!

Seems he has been running a number of business websites, using different names such as GB investigate and vm investigate - ALL running the same shoddy service and apparently ripping people off! Ive reported them to the police and hopefully they won't be scamming for much longer.

I was conned by this lot too - took over 4oo pounds from me and gave me nothing in return. All big claims on their website www.cetninvestigate.com but no substance!

Called, as did others who have complained and received the same level of abuse from them! Threats as well. Reported them to the police in kent - looks like they are actually Ashford Kent based and have ben told they will be looking into this and ALL the other complaints against this name, Graham Bunten.

They NEED to be stopped!!! Looks like he was running a website called VM Investigate a few weeks ago and GB investigate before that - constantly conning people and trying to hid behind new company names - AVOID!!!
