After having failed for seven months to lodge their Annual Return, the promoters of infamous "Cocomo Village" finally had their company de-registered on 1 February 2018. No more company, no more scams!
Good, I thought, although perhaps they'll fix things up and lodge their long overdue Annual Return, and continue with the charade of "selling" their fantasy of a tropical island to dreamers from around the world.
After all, according to Item 27 of this Schedule of Fees, it'd only cost them $599 (and that's Tongan dollars!) to have the company restored to the register - and what's that when compared to the more than US$600,000 already extracted from this sc.. - ahem! - scheme?
And so I kept checking. After one week, it was still de-registered!
After two weeks, it was still de-registered!
After three weeks, it was still de-registered!
And as I write this post, it is still de-registered!
I'm torn between wanting it re-registered so I can keep writing about it, and wanting it stay de-registered so no more people can get ripped off.
