Then insist they tell you who issued the warrant and double check with that police force. Then produce information about the warrant such as the date it was issued, who signed it, any registration number it might have, and which offenses it covers, so its existance can be confirmed. Otherwise you might be getting played.
It's also worth pointing out that in the UK the police will normally only get involved in arresting someone for criminal activity. Non payment of bills is normally dealt with by the County Courts/Small Claims courts and would not be regarded as criminal activity.
As Sam mentioned you might want to be a bit more specific
It also looks like the ICA LinkedIn page has been closed down
Again, my sincere apologies in the delay. After my relocation from New York to Florida, along with a new job, life has been crazy.
The final part of the story is basically as follows.....
Once I sent my deposit to the ICA, myself and my close friend on the contract in Kosovo began to think of serious questions for Richard that came a bit late.
Why did he not own a gym?
Why could we not find anyone, it appeared, that had or was currently working for him using an ICA CQC license?
How much business had he done or projected to do?
How many companies were chomping at the bit to sign their employees up for these courses?
All of these questions were brought up during my final conference call with Richard, along with the question (and reiteration of the fact that I was quitting my contract for this opportunity and needed to know) of how long I could expect to wait before I had the CQC license in hand and could teach for the ICA.....which Richard reluctantly informed me could be up to six weeks.
During the call, my close friend and fellow Marine informed Richard that he would be backing out of the class date if the ICA could not produce verifiable evidence that they had indeed been conducting enough business to justify Richard's claim of our potential salaries. Richard asked for 3 days to compile the information, after which he told our group "leader" that he felt he had given us enough information and wasn't going to bother "convincing" anyone else of the ICA's legitimacy.
At this point, my friend and I both made a mutual decision to leave our contract in Kosovo and return to the USA for an opportunity with law enforcement in New York due to unanswered questions and general feeling of uncertainty with the ICA.
Several others back out, as well, and, thus began my dialogue with the ICA in regards to receiving my deposit back. As you'll see in the email strings, the idea of a "Kitty fund" was introduced. This was the ICA's apparent solution for those who cancelled....simply find someone else to take your slot and have them pay you cash in order to get your deposit back!.....OR...in my case...Richard simply informed several individuals that slots were already reserved, so why not just take their reserved slot being that I'm not giving them their money back to begin with!
You'll notice that the "non-refundable" rule mentioned by Sarah in the e-mails is NOWHERE to be found on any of the documents I posted here previously....
I hope the attachments loaded in correct order. I arranged them according to date sent and received. I also blacked out the phone numbers to avoid harassment claims.
If anyone has questions regarding details...please, ask them.
Hang on a minute...trying to correct the size of the attachments to make them larger
Hang on gents....trying to figure out how to make the attachments larger for you
Try hosting them on a hosting site like Photobucket.
Thanks for the additional information..
We really need to get this written up now with a conclusion, any additional info that presents its self can then be added if needed. That said, I really feel we've achieved something with this investigation and I want to express my thanks thus far to all concerned.
K, I'll get back on the write-up this weekend.

If you want anyone to proof read it etc, then send a draft over to me. PM me if you don't have my email. I've currently sitting around with a bust leg so I have time on my hands.
