Just to satisfy your curiosity, here's a few testimonials about D&G. The first one is from a facebook page. I'm copying it to this thread for everyone to see what kind of criminals D&G and the sister company Delices d'Annie really is.
"During a regular visit to an 89 year old lady on a volunteer befriending basis, she was very excited to tell me the great news that she was about to become a ‘wealthy’ lady. To an 89 year old, living on her own and surviving on a widow’s pension, the promise of amounts like £5,000, £7,000 and £8,100 is a substantial windfall.
Of course I was curious to know where these generous sums of cash were coming from and it turns out they had been promised to her by a company called Delices & Gourmandises.
So, here’s how it works. My 89 year old has been receiving letters from Delices & Gourmandises once or twice A WEEK since August last year. In each correspondence are things like a Form for the ‘Awarding’ of an amount of money. You have to complete the claims form located above your Order Form and all communication is emblazoned with things like ‘URGENT RESPONSE’ and ‘IMPORTANT’ ‘Payment of £8,100.00 Guaranteed’. They even enclose an ‘Official letter regarding the award of the grand prize’, for post security reasons it obviously says SPECIMEN all over it and the cheques for £8,100 naturally have ‘once declared grand winner by the independent legal advisor’, but that’s to be expected right?
All my 89 year old has to do is place an order for sweets/cakes/biscuits. And there is even a helpful phone call (or several) a week from a gentleman from the company informing her that her next letter is on its way and reminding her of the urgency to place her order immediately. More phone calls from a lady, calling herself Wendy McCoy (whose name is all over the received letters) asking for my lady’s bank details.
Curiously, I don’t think this is to deposit the winnings, because the letters state that the ‘cheque will be delivered to your home and we will even accompany you to the bank to deposit your cheque’.
These are all very personal letters to my lady alone because, with her excellent 89 year old eyesight, she can of course see that the handwriting isn’t printed, it’s real, and that the cup stains on the documents are, of course, not printed but real.
So I was curious to know how much my 89 year old, widowed and living alone on a pension, was spending on Delices and Gourmandises. She summised ‘about £200 overall, £30 here and £25 there’. As with most people of her generation she does everything by cheque so out came the cheque books so we could tally up the entries on her cheque stubs.
£651.03 in the space of 8 months on sweets, chocolates, biscuits and cakes. She had an example of her most recent order. An A5 sized bag of fruit jellies (completely unboxed and unbranded in a clear plastic bag)…£9. Three cakes, a little bigger than a standard cake bar, about half the size of a loaf tin….£15.
But think of the return! £651.03 to get back £5,000 or £7,000 or £8,000…GUARANTEED…is pretty good right?
I’m blown away by the obviously charitable, generous nature of this Company. Following an internet search it seems that 100’s of elderly people are being promised relatively large sums of money! I can’t make any promises to you and your elderly loved ones, though, because unfortunately I didn’t find anyone that had actually received their promised amounts.
However, I’m so blown away by their generosity that I intend to tell everyone I know about it. I have found some online articles about them but I really don’t feel that this great news is being spread well enough so I’m starting with this Facebook campaign and then onto…well I can think of a few TV programmes that would be perfect for sharing this kind of information!!"
Even more stunning are the following testimonials from quite a number of people. It's in French but I'm sure, Americk, you'll find your way to translate all of this;
