I received an unsolicited email encouraging me to invest. Could you let me know if this is a legitimate company?
It is great that you are taking the steps to find out more about a company you are planning on making an investment with. We are not able to confirm whether a company is legitimate, however, we can provide you with information to help you make an informed decision.
Before making an investing decision, you should make sure you check registration of the person or company offering the investment at CheckBeforeYouInvest.ca. Also, check if they are a public company and file disclosure documents on the System for Electronic Document Analysis & Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.
