The reason I wrote about this investment scheme was that a very similar one (Proven Oil Canada) in Germany seemed to have run in problems. Many of the names connected to the two schemes were the same. At the very least I had expected the authorities to have a close look at the scheme.
Both the Securities Commission and Bank Negara in Malaysia did indeed take action, Focus Malaysia and Kinibiz have written articles about the scheme.
In Singapore however I have not noticed any action whatsoever from the authorities, the media have also not given it any attention.
That might have been a mistake.
From recent information it looks like not only Proven Oil Canada but also Proven Oil Asia has run in some serious troubles.
