Green Oil Plantations Limited

In recent times, we at Beat the Banks have dealt with claims relating to a number of investment schemes that promised much and delivered very little. If you have been persuaded to invest your pension or savings into a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) and then lost money, we’d like to hear from you today via our online contact form or by a phone call to 0800 193 1234.

Green Oil Plantations Limited was another investment scheme that failed to live up to its claims. Potential investors were brought on board, parting with their hard-earned pension pots or perhaps their life savings. They were targeted by unregulated sales specialists who were paid huge commissions in a bid to get as many people in as possible.

The premise was a tempting and somewhat exotic one. Plantations in Australia were to cultivate huge swathes of a species of tree called Millettia – a member of the pea family – and within two years they would be harvested for biofuel, livestock feed and fertiliser. The high yields of oil that were predicted didn’t materialise, leaving investors out of pocket. The company went into administration in 2013.

A high risk gamble that many should never have been asked to take

This was an extremely high-risk investment that really shouldn’t have been aimed at the ordinary investor. More than a thousand men and women signed on the dotted line for the scheme, most of them persuaded by slick marketing material and even slicker sales patters. When an administrator was appointed in 2013, there was an estimated deficit of more than £25 million.

High-risk investments like the Green Oil Plantations scheme should best be left to investors who understand the gamble that’s involved and who can perhaps afford to take a loss should it occur. The fact that ordinary hard-working members of the public were targeted, and subsequently lost almost everything, leaves a rather nasty taste in the mouth.

If you transferred your money via a SIPP into Green Oil Plantations Limited you could be due compensation. Here at Beat the Banks, we are only too happy to discuss the details of your case, and to offer you honest, reliable no-nonsense advice. This was a scheme that left a great deal of upset in its wake, and something needs to be done about it. Call 0800 193 1234 and have a chat with our friendly team. We hope to hear from you soon.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

  • Mr & Mrs M, Shetland

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
