On 10 August 2015, “Jeremy Lane” left a comment on REDD-Monitor about a company called Magne Sante. A representative of Magne Sante had cold called him, offering to recover the money he had invested in carbon credits. First though, Jeremy would have to hand over a £10,000 advance payment to Magne Sante.
Last week, REDD-Monitor received an email from RobertMarc Asante, the founder of Magne Sante. He asked me to provide contact details for “Jeremy Lane” and to remove the comment. Unfortunately Asante couldn’t be bothered explaining what his company does:
I am not going take time to explain what we do; if anyone wishes to actually take the time to read our web information and speak with one of our Regional Agents, they would be fully aware of what we do and how we do it.
Asante’s email is posted below. But first, let’s follow his advice and see what we can find out about his company from the publicly available information.
Magne Sante Limited was incorporated on 20 July 2009. The company has two registered domains (magnesante.co.uk and msrpr.com) registered respectively in August 2010 and March 2011, both in the name of Magne Sante. The company’s first director was RobertMarc Asante. He resigned in August 2012, and Troy Cavendish-Blake took over as sole director.
The registered address is The Business Lounge, 5 Arden Place Luton LU2 7YE. Google maps camera car hasn’t driven down Arden Place, so all we’ve got is this blurry image of 5 Arden Place, taken from across the park. It looks rather like a block of flats:
Magne Sante’s website explains that,
MS.RPR exists to relentlessly and robustly represent private investors that have had the misfortune of losing money as a result of any kind of misleading investment offering.
The website states that the company is “not a claims management firm”. Helpfully, the website also explains that Magne Sante is neither the Financial Conduct Authority, nor the Police:
Magne Sante Relentless Pursuit & Recovery, is now embarking on an all out offensive toward all culprits that have, and would seek to deprive, our clients of their hard earned cash, with no regard for the havoc they reap along with the untold misery for many unsuspecting people who have essentially had their money stolen from them as a result of various types of scams and swindles.
Despite all of the company’s relentless pursuit, Magne Sante’s records filed with Companies House reveal little success. The company has filed “Accounts for a dormant company” every year since 2010.
Magne Sante has posted the following warning on its website:
Oddly enough, Asante doesn’t mention the contents of this warning in his email to REDD-Monitor:
From: RobertMarc-Secure Email

Subject: NEGATIVE AND FALSE POSTING ON YOUR WEBSITE
Cc: TCB – Secure Email, Tactical Field Service
Name: RobertMarc Asante
Dear Sirs, You have posted comments by an individual calling himself Jeremy Lane; this individual suggests that our company MAGNE SANTE is in someway a scam company and has agents misleading members of the general public with a view to persuading them to part with thousands of pounds for services that we purport to provide but do not. I take exception to this and I would like you to provide me with full contact details of the aforementioned individual so that we may take the appropriate action so as to prevent him from continuing to make defamatory statements and comments regarding our organization. Rather than seek further clarification in relation to the actual services we provide to our clients it seems this individual has presumed much without seeking to establish facts about our agents, myself, or our organization. This will not and can not be allowed to stand, I would urge you to immediately take down this post and refer this individual to our Managing Partner who is head of legal services and compliance for MAGNE SANTE; his name is Troy Cavendish-Blake. email: email@example.com. I am not going take time to explain what we do; if anyone wishes to actually take the time to read our web information and speak with one of our Regional Agents, they would be fully aware of what we do and how we do it. For the record we are the ONLY privately owned and privately managed organization in the UK that proactively represents UK based investors in their quest to pursue and recover funds that they’ve lost as a result of many different types of misleading investment offerings. Before you publish such a derogatory post perhaps you as an organization should check your facts and do your research; as now we shall be conducting a deep investigation of your organization as well as any and all individuals behind your organization past and present, as well as all known associates and affiliates, because as I said earlier this type of negative suggestion regarding the integrity of our organization, our agents, and myself as the Founder, will not go unanswered. Please take this communication seriously, and please read our web information fully, and please understand that we are not a trivial group of individuals.
RobertMarc Asante Founder
THE MAGNE SANTE GROUP
UPDATE – 15 September 2015: While I was writing this post, RobertMarc Asante left a comment on REDD-Monitor. Asante writes, “I obviously take exception to MAGNE SANTE being described as a “pretty transparent scam” and “I am proud of the work we do at MAGNE SANTE and I expect us to continue to do this work in this difficult sector for many years to come.”
