Ripoff Report’s discussions with Blue Water Gold have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. Blue Water Gold listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Blue Water Gold’s principal, Mr. Keith Byer, has informed us that his personal philosophy is ultimately, an informed and engaged client is our most valuable asset. [continued below]....

As a successful businessman, Mr. Byer feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Byer hopes to maintain Blue Water Gold as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Byer’s personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in its operations as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and partner care”. Blue Water Gold's mission statement says it all: "Our goal is to provide our clients the best quality, value and professional excellence in the industry.” One of the other things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads: “Blue Water Gold (and Mr. Byer) truly communicate all aspects of the job in a timely and effective manner. We are very pleased with the responsiveness that he and his employees show us. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on all their promises.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Keith Byer during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Blue Water Gold, LLC.

Blue Water Gold was formed in 2011 to purchase and/or lease acreage in Nome, Alaska for the purpose of mining gold. It is an ocean floor mining company that is seeking to recover $400 million in gold within 600 acres of property.

Investors are recruited through their website. Mr. Byer stated: “Leads other than internet come from national lead gathering centers”. They acquire investors through personal interaction via password protected areas of their website and monthly meetings. Some investors visit Nome and see the operation process. Blue Water Gold also sells to two other companies.

Blue Water Gold,LLC Joel Duncan, Keith Byer, John Byer Deceitfull practices , Internet

Blue Water Gold run by Joel Duncan and Keith (John) Byer have been giving 40% of the investor dollars to outside telemarketers. Mr. Duncan and Mr. Byer have raised millions and to date have wasted money and produced nothing even close to the projected amounts of gold retrieved in Nome Alaska. Mr. Duncan had stated that the cause was Keith Byer due to his drunkiness in last seasons operations. Beware of their deceit as both especially Joel Duncan are nothing more than telemarketers with a new scheme to seperate monies from investors.

False Information

AUTHOR: westbudreau - ()

Nothing about these statements in this complaint are true. The date that this was posted was before any mining has even began. Blue Water Gold has always been a strait forward company that does what they say they are going to do. This could be verified by multiple 3rd party entities.  All of the equipment purchased through venture capital can be verified via "VC Operational Cost". Blue Water Gold includes a cost breakdown along with the part number, and even the company the equipment is being purchased from that an individual can verify themselves. There is nothing that BWG has to hide.

Keith Byer

AUTHOR: shadows - ()

After finding out that the truth was not told by Joel Duncan Keith Byer was an innocent participant unknowingly by Joel Duncan. So we retrack  and concluded he knew nothing about what Joel was side doing. Joel had said this about Keith and we are seeking damages from Joel Duncan who in the past has a jaded track record with investors. Google Joel Duncan and you will see for yourself.
