    Many friends of mine received many e-mails respectively of this sort stating that this "group" which calls itself "Avestra" is inviting them to invest.

    Upon checking with someone in high places based in Australia, it turned out to be non-existence "group".

    If anyone here got additional details about this "group", please elaborate further.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards.

    When a check was being conducted with someone in high places in Australia, it was confirmed that this "group" doesn't exist.

    If anyone here with more details and information, please advise further.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    I agree with TheMan (oh damn, I've always been against "The Man" up until now). Details, especially a website, would be helpful.

    I really can't find it because nothing has been provided except for an e-mail which I received from them.

    I've asked a friend of mine residing in Sydney to check it out with their regulators but nothing positive turned up.

    How about you people here in this forum?

    Any luck?

    Regards.

    A couple of e-mails still came from them lately but I've paid no heed whatsoever.

    Hope you people shall follow suit.
