K.C. writes: I was cold-called by Ellis Capital Management, as a result of which I invested £4,932 in shares in Renergy Foods AG. I sent payment to an HSBC account in the name of Renergy Foods plc. Finally I was sent a share certificate signed by Mr Tom Colclough, the company president. Since then I have called Renergy in Switzerland with no reply. Ellis Capital Management told me it was moving to Berkeley Square in central London but it is not there. Being older and wiser at 77, I think this looks like a scam.
