Dea Pageboy, 

Saint Antoine
The UK Companies House includes only one company that is called Saint
Antoine Services. It is a health care services copmany, registered
since 2005 (not since 2001/2); it also has a different address:
SK14 8PL

Warehouse Holdings
This company exists, according to the Companies House registry, since
2000, in the same address, and was first called "SHUNTSHINE LIMITED"
(and changed its name in 2001).

You can order a report about the company (for extra payment) here: 
Companies House 

Further reports could be ordered here: 

The problem? There is another company in this address: 

And "Warehouse Holdings" is nowehere to be found on Leeds
phone-books/yellow pages; business directories and the such.

Harrison Europe

Again that is such a company registered in the UK since 2002 . Further
reports are for sale here: 

The problem? On a Kensington directory it appears as a "Management &
Business Consultants in Kensington" and with a different address.

Another problem? The Harrisson guy was stupid enough to post his email
address all over the Internet, and I also found it at the "phone-lads"
buster forum :

(You can find information on the kind of scam employed here): 

Again, the company is registered in the UK and with that address, since 2002. 

It also has a website
Arkadin UK 

The problem? This Arkadin is not "one of the leading electronics
distributors around, we have for sale brand new electronics, in their
brand new boxes, complete accessories and warranties on all our
We also selling at wholesale prices, so the prices are very
affordable." - it is a "global provider of integrated audio and data
conferencing services with operating centres in over 16 countries".

Another scam. 

Three of the companies listed in the question are definitely scams.
The fourth - Warehouse Holdings - is listed as a company in the UK,
but there is no evidence that it actually exists beyond the name,
which is suspicious (and please note that two of the other three
companies were also registered as a company, but turned out to be an
abuse of those companies' identities - those "real" companies are not
in the same business). In any case, I would like to remind you of the
general precautions when dealing through the Internet: Never send
money through Western Union or similar companies (These are to be used
when one knows the person to whom the money is addressed, for example
a family member); always try to think whether the deal is too good to
be true; contact Chambers of Commerce in cases of doubt.

Spot on politicalguru-ga . The contact details supplied on Alibaba for
all the companies are false. The companies are registered with
Companies House, but the contacts details are false.

I notice that on Alibabi the contact information for Warehouse
Holdings Limited (uk) uses the phone number 44-702-4018667

This same number is used on Alibaba for Trading Business Solutions (UK) Ltd

The Arkadin number is used twice as well.

As a subscriber to Companies House Direct, I can also add to the
excellent information and advice provided by Politicalguru and

Antoine George is not listed as a director of Saint Antoine Services
Ltd; and the landline number was 'not recognised'.

Although Warehouse Holdings appears OK, it is unusual to refer to the
Registration Number as 'Certificates'; and a distinctly
Nigerian-sounding voice answered the landline.

There is no Paul Harrison (or Harrison Paul) among the officers of
Harrison Europe Ltd; the Registration Number is 04834871, not the one
shown in the 'Certificates'; and a distinctly Oriental-sounding voice
answered the landline.

There is no company registered as Arkadin Ltd although there is an
Arkadin (UK) Ltd with the Registration Number shown in the
'Certificates'; there is no Robin Anderson listed among the officers;
and a distinctly foreign-sounding voice answered the landline.

So, although the may companies 'exist' (more or less as shown) their
credentials are decidedly dubious.
