Jonty Crossick, serial fraudster or just a hopeless incompetent?

Jonty Crossick is a man to be avoided by everyone who wishes to keep their pension intact.  This blog is issued in the public interest to alert people to steer well clear of anything this man does.

Mr Crossick is at liberty to sue me if he thinks I am libeling him. However, I have something in excess of 1000 documents to prove my assertion that any contact with him will damage your wealth, and would be happy to produce those documents in any UK court.

I, and about ten thousand other folks, have had the misfortune to be misled by Jonty Crossick. He is either totally incompetent or an out and out crook. The way the money has gone, the latter is the more obvious choice.

To my certain knowledge Mr Crossick has touted for funding for close on a hundred property projects. Out of all those schemes only one has had a partly successful outcome. All the others have led to massive losses for about ten thousand folks.

He set up property deals in the north of England. That entire business was put into bankruptcy with massive losses.

He set up a grand scheme for investing in property in Eastern Europe. That fell apart with investors losing over £100 million. I even lost money on that myself. Crossick’s partner, Craig Cameron, was fined £300,000 for dodgy dealing, and investors’ money was siphoned out of the companies and has gone missing, presumably into Crossick’s pocket. Not a single penny of what I invested actually reached the project I thought I’d invested in.

And now, here he is, jumping up again, offering to help people invest. What will happen is that he will help you transfer your hard earned investment funds into his pocket. I’m sure he has some amazing schemes up his sleeve. Don’t go near them. Don’t go anywhere near him. You will regret it if you do.

I’m surprised he has found a group of partners. They may be honest, but if they are allying themselves to Jonty Crossick either they haven’t done a check on his past, in which case they are incompetent, or they are crooks as well. Either way, are they the kind of people you want to do business with?

Who am I talking about here? First, Jonty Crossick, scam artiste extraordinaire. Second, his company Earthhawk. I know nothing about his partners, but they are prepared to do business with a person with an well documented history of fraud and incompetence. All I can say is that if you ally yourself with a crook, you must expect people to think you are a crook also. David Sherman, Dilip Sahajpal, Eva Eastman, Rob Elings; can any of you guys say with a straight face that you have checked out Mr Crossick’s past history of fraud and business incompetence, and yet you are still prepared to do business with him, and that past history is okay with you? Is so, you must expect any mud thrown your way to stick.

Let’s put some figures to the list of woes investors have had to put up with from Jonty Crossick.

It is estimated that Jonty Crossick and former wife Alise Crossick have defrauded up to 25,000 investors out of sums in excess of €250 MILLION. For example, Jonty and Alise Crossick’s own Ready2Invest website boasted that they had “sold over €400 million of off-plan property to our 25,000-strong network of investors in 16 countries across the world…” and “we also operate a private equity arm, which has raised over €150 million for 18 developments in eight countries, with an aggregate gross development value of nearly €2 billion”.

All these deals went down the drain and left those thousands of investors with massive losses.

You can see a list of the known Crossick schemes where investors have lost significant sums of money at If you invested in any of these, you may wish to make contact with the R2i Action Group via that website.

I have not tracked a single investor who achieved the financial returns promised by Jonty Crossick – and only a handful (in the Bayside Silver Coast development in Portugal) made within 10% of the promised returns.

Please note, the only reason Jonty Crossick has not been nailed by the FCA is because he has never run a regulated business, he gets others to front the schemes. That means that if anything goes wrong once you sign up you will not be protected in any way. What you lose, you lose.
