In 2014 I was working in the UAE. At that time it was impossible to get a UK mortgage while working overseas.
I was told about a Dubai based mortgage company, Mortgage International who would be able to help.
Sadly, I first came into contact with this company in March 2014. One of their mortgage advisers, Ken Saxon told me he would be able to get me a mortgage in the UK. He put me in touch with his “man on the ground,” Paul Okade who apparently set up UK mortgages.
I had to pay Paul Okade £10,000 upfront to secure the mortgage. i wasn’t happy about this, but I was assured, in writing, that all fees would be refunded if he was unsuccessful.
Yes, you guessed it. No mortgage, no refund. I told Ken Saxon what had happened, and he passed me on to Warren Philliskirk, his colleague, also based in Dubai. They were terribly sorry, what a shame, yes they managed to get £10,000 of my life savings stolen, but really, SO not their problem. Take it up with Okade.
I spent a further year – and £2,000 to get a county court judgement against Okade, but he disappeared before the bailiffs got to his address.
Back to Warren in Dubai. “No, Okade wasn’t a colleague, we can’t be held responsible.” Transpires they’d passed me on to some random conman based in Birmingham. Bizarrely, they were happy to pass on the email address of another man who had also been conned.
Three years later, no mortgage, no refund, no sign of Paul Okade – except all over the internet, where he has set himself up as a financial expert / life coach / preacher.
I am at my wits end and I want to make sure that no other innocent person has to go through what I have over the past few years.
It is my duty to expose these people for the financial safety of others.
