More Dodgy Investments offered
The Securities Commission has prohibited advertising for a scheme known as the Tri-West Investment Club. The scheme appears to be based in the central American state of Belize. A Panamanian company called Haarlem Universal Corporation is involved, the commission says.

Senior operations executive Norman Miller says the club is being actively promoted in Palmerston North, Tauranga, and Whakatane.

He says it does not have a registered prospectus or investment statement and it has all the hallmarks of a prime bank scheme.

"Tri West and Harlem have been the subject of regulatory action in Canada and the United States. Cease and desist orders have been made against them by regulatory authorities in both of these countries," he says.
