Potential Scam Internship?

Hi monkeys,

I have been offered an internship with the firm the Keith & Even Group (TKEG) and they claim to offer M&A and PE advice but I cannot find any deals they have worked on.

Also, their share capital in the UK is only about £1000 and the CEO is only 22 which seems suspicious so should I take the internship offer?

That might be a scam... I saw one called alpha capital holdings that was also a scam orientated towards Chinese students. Tbh anything orientated towards Chinese students is probably a scam

Thanks for your response, it does seem fishy but I don't think they target Chinese students since most of the interns seem to be working in London.

Apparently, the people who founded the firm are all still in college so I have no idea how they can claim to offer consulting services.

hi i just wanted to know if you accepted your offer in the end and how the internship went?

Hi, yeah it was pretty useless. Everyone is in their 20s and they have barely any financial knowledge. The CEO was still in college when I was there so I left after I managed to get an offer for an internship at a real company.
