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...

It would seem Alec and Allan are trying to silence people who are finding ways to get their money back from them, people I know have had their Facebook and Twitter account disabled though complaints from a third party, I am sure we can guess who the wee man is doing this? I wanted to let everyone know that Europol Financial Crime Centre (https://www.europol.europa.eu/about-europol/financial-crime-information-centre-fcic) are now looking into their activities, I urge all people who have been affected by DetaFund, Parmafey, Parmaserv, Deta Green Tech and Balquidder make contact with them. We may not get our money back but we could finally see some justice done! As always if you have any information as to Alec’s home address please email me advice@dr.com

Correction to the original review of May 05 2016 which states that Parmafey Int and Balquidder Advisors are one and the same company run by Alec MacLaren/Alex McGrory and Allan Canning. Parmafey Int is only a brand name created by McGrory/Maclaren allegedly when he was in Kazakhstan working for a Moscow based Company and it is not a UK company. Balquidder Advisors Ltd is a UK Company solely owned and Directed by Allan Canning. However if any of the investors who lost money deposited their hard earned investments in part or in whole into a joint UK Bank account in the name of these two men the authorities in Scotland will be very interested. Canning could be out on a limb as an associate of McGrory/MacLaren because his sole ownership of Balquidder can be verified in the Companies House Webcheck.
Deta rip off
to Anonymous #1275767
My experience is that our investments were paid into Uk Barclays Bank account in the name of the investment not in the name of either man. Obviously the funds would then disappear into an off shore account . Canning and or Maclaren would then remain in touch setting out how your investments were making money. When you try to take it out they give you every excuse and refer to head office which doesn't exist. Maclaren and wife are absolute livers that cannot distinguish between reality and fiction. Sad little people that fund their and their children's lives through stolen money from us investors. At some point it will come tumbling down when maclaren oversteps his thievery and or someone sends / shows it to the children to realize that their parents are nasty *** artists.

The kids know all about his thieving! His son worked in the Glasgow office with Allan and even accompanied Alec at least once to the Middle East...

His Son if he did really work with Allan Canning in the Glasgow Office he would know about Deta Green Technologies which in 12 days time if the company does not rectify the illegalities like not having a real person as a Director and registering the wrong address. No surprises and Alec MacLaren has been an expert in dissolving Companies and other people's money.

You mean Michael "Mikey" Maclaren? Then yes his LinkedIn profile says he is a client manager for Parmaserv/Parmafey/Balquidder and Deta Funds as all of these companies are owed by Maclaren/Canning, despite what they tell clients!

Mikey MacLaren has allegedly joined the firm and could this be the same kid who came down to the Scottish Agricultural College in Ayr to watch his Dad play Rugby? He seemed to be too nice a boy to be heading for Polmont Young Offenders.

Deta Green Technologies (DGT) yet another shell company connected to our man has until 12 midnight to put it's house in order and rectify the illegalities or it will be struck off by Companies House. If it is struck off it will be the most recent of many to be dissolved. If you think your investment in Deta Fund is in any way connected to DTG even by virtue of promotional material then Yuan Ne Stewart at the Gartcosh Crime Campus could be interested.

Police will do naf all.......as per usual.

Companies House have no powers to investigate an illegal company and it's up to the victims to complain to the Police, but as someone said they will do naf all and therein lies the mystery.
