The question is not asked based on the popularity of your promotion but a genuine concern related to IP infringement. If you have any connection to this company can you please make them aware of the risk.

Thank you oneasterisk.

We tried to find an email address and details of the owners but with no success. (Should have asked the technical team.)

Funny I believe your doing the promoting here, because the information is clearly available. Nice try to drum up business for yourself.

Please refer to your private message to us...

Are you joking? I got so much flack for posting this site.
Why would we promote here?

Our solicitor has had difficulty locating a valid email address. As the website URL for this company was not functioning, the Blog has no obvious contact details and there appear to be no terms & conditions carrying company details - this was an action of last resort.

No one thought to ask our technical team if we could use a non-functioning domain name to find contact details.

Did you do the whois search? When I did it, I got the name and address of the person who registered the domain, a phone number, fax number and an email address. It's completely free to do it online and the information is public, anyone can look it up at anytime.

I won't give you the satisfaction your looking for by answering your question. Please don't insult my intelligence or anyone elses on here it obvious what your trying to do.

I learned how to buy a home free and clear of a mortgage too! It's called CASH.

You are right - we haven't read this thread in its entirety. We just noticed the reference to this company and hoped someone would know how to get hold of an email address and other contact details.

We have this information now. Thank you.

The assumption that you are connected to Marcus Realestate was based on reading the first post.

Rest assured we have no expectations that you or anyone else on this forum would be interested in a promotion for our company. Also please note, we do not sell US real estate.

Folks - as an individual who has owned property in the UK, let me assure you that the entire system is totally different over there and this would never, ever in a gazillion years work due to the very nature of the UK "system" (for wont of a better word). To wit: you cannot complete a property sale in the UK without a lawyer. Now, I suppose we could bet the odds on finding 10,000 shady lawyers perhaps... possibly for $100 a pop.

Which should have been obvious to all by the use of your word "solicitor". I hope you are able to resolve your situation.

I read this thread from beginning to end with varying amounts of interest but mostly sheer incredulity.

Mr. Keegan - my hat off to you, sir. A most patient man. Ditto to many, many others for thoughtful, well thought out posts reeking of common sense, logic and rational thought. to you all. It is, at the end of the day, truly very generous of you all to take the time to write what you did. Many (most?) others would have run out of patience long before 11 pages.

To the OP: you shall do whatever it is you choose to do. So be it. I'm sure many here would be interested to hear the outcome.
