After nearly a year of dealing with the representatives from Pacific Tycoon, I feel it is time to set the investment community’s concerns to rest and respond to the question “is it a scam?” Let me begin by saying that in my opinion and experience with the company, Pacific Tycoon is not a scam and shipping container investments are a profitable, low-risk method of improving a financial portfolio; especially in difficult financial times. If you are an investor who is seeking a simple investment that is easy to understand and guards against inflation and other economic hardships (like a recession), then take a moment to consider what I have to say before you discount shipping container investing or even the company in question. In contrast to other offerings in the market, both this company and this investing option have proven to provide consistent investment returns to an increasing number of investors, business partners and container owners, all over the globe. And, for the last year I have been one of them.
In February of 2012, a representative from Pacific Tycoon contacted me with a lucrative business opportunity, that at first glance appeared unrealistic, and cause for alarm. Guided by my suspicions, I researched further in to both Pacific Tycoon and the shipping industry, to help me determine if it is a scam or not; and to firmly establish whether I should proceed with my investment. After searching through pages and pages of wikis, forums and other digital content, I found nothing that would draw any red flags or directly imply that Pacific Tycoon is a scam, or even that the shipping container industry could be described by anything but “booming.” Albeit there were many “tire-kicker” investors that made their “arm-chair analyst” predictions and freely shared their opinion, but nobody who openly charged that they were the victim of a shipping container scam. In fact, quite the contrary. Instead I found numerous forum and blog posts from investors, who were openly sharing their investing experience with Pacific Tycoon, and it was all good! No mention of a scam, fraud or any such related problems.
Aside from Pacific Tycoon investor testimonials and the industry news/information posted by the company, there was little else to provide evidence that what they were claiming was fact, and not fiction. All I can say is that no matter how hard I tried, I could not find any definitive information that could contradict Pacific Tycoon’s claims of above average returns and steady profits, earned from investing in shipping containers. What I did discover during my extensive research, was a good opportunity to invest and a company that makes a strong commitment to investors, that (in my personal experience) is reinforced by consistent monthly payments and industry leading customer service.
