*** Beware of Chris Woods using "Extortion" claims. This is a complete ploy cons use to distract you from the truth. It's a complete joke and false. DO NOT fall for his bogus rhetoric**
The definition of a con man: "A con artist, or a person who uses a fraud method known as a confidence trick"
And that is exactly what Australian Christopher J. Woods does, or as you most know him as, Chris Woods (Christopher James Woods) "Jockey". He is "always in a hurry" or "running out of time" he claims. Thus meaning you better front-give him cash so he can do his deal in Dubai, or know the winners of the next big "Horse race" and "people are relying on him to double or triple your so called "investment".
He knows if your in on a "fixed horse race" than you really can't complain or go to the police or feds to tell them why and how he ripped you off right? Since its illegal to do so. [continued below]....
..... But this intices you to give him money. Sure he will deny it and say "prove it, I don't fix horse races" In a sense trapping you in to shut up so your just as guilty. Or use some bunk "furniture business" as a front to wheel you in.
The only thing he is "in a hurry" for is to obtain your cash and use it for the next credit card bill he has to pay with credit cards racked up at 5 star hotels he frequently goes to under "private names", Car rentals, expensive clothes, lavish apartments, expensive restaurants, tanning, gym memberships etc. so YOU the people who forked him money over cannot find him.
He says he is leaving the country although that is BS, all he does is flee to another hotel here in the States under another private name. He writes bunk promissary notes which he knows legally he doesn't have to pay back on. Chris Woods was NEVER I repeat NEVER was a jockey, nor athlete. He uses some "furniture" deals-company as a front his friend (Peter McGrath who really does own in Australia in knows about Mr. Woods dealings.)
He rarely has cash liquid and your money is usually gone with a blink of an eye. He has scammed MILLIONS from people, open and closes numerous bank accounts, has PO Boxes in different places. And everything is on Credit YOU the investor pay for by giving him money. Its a ponzi scheme. (House of cards) You loan Chris money, you never get it back, you get a default judgment and he just ignores it and moves on. He is not known in the horse racing world and of course gives destinations such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Asia etc.
Places u won't travel to yourself and see first hand what he is really doing. What does he do then? First off he takes young girls mostly stupid and young as his "girlfriends" and wines and dines them on your money you paid him. Meets up with you the "investor" (victim really) He takes these young women with him on trips, buys them lavish things, and spoils them rotten. Most of them too stupid to know what's going on. Or if they do, their greed and being spoiled keep their mouths closed. If you gave Chris Woods money, then you just got played. BIG TIME.
He's been doing this for years and has burned every bridge he has built. He is constantly on the run, no more than 2-3 months in one city or country.
Its all a HOAX people. He leaves town to stay off the radar while things cool off leaving his investors burned and ripped off. (But tells you he has some big deal he's working on wherever he's at) You may get your money back plus some an additional money but just remember the money you got back was from someone else he ripped off. (Ponzi scheme) or as Chris likes to say "personal loans" He asks himself do they have money? Are they liquid? Are they a threat to expose his con? Are they an easy target? Once the bullseye has been placed on your head, Chris moves in for the kill and stealing your money.
Mostly divorced wives with kids or single women or people who are an easy target. If you believe in him than your just believing in his scam cause your greedy and want quick cash. His so called lawyers are corrupt and greedy as well. They to know his con but will do anything for a buck. Using promisary notes or loans as a Civil reason that he cannot be arressted. Of course they fail to mention his "illegal" method of doubling your investment even if it doesn't actually take place. Its still an improper proposal with ALL iteant to steal from you for personal use. (Pre-meditated fraud) Seriously if you have been ripped off do NOT be scared. Contact the FBI, DA's office or homeland security. He must be stopped and these postings need to grow and grow all over the web.
The fact is Chris will take your money then make it seem like everything is your fault. Curssing you out, playing "tough guy", threatens you, talks himself out of dealings...i.e. "Your messing my deal up" or "if you mess with me your not getting your money back" or "people are depending on me and if you bother me the deal for your money won't work". Etc. Etc. He is in DENIAL and a thief who is insecure and royally f***ed in the brain and NOT smart whatsoever. Although he thinks so in his pea size head. His IQ is below 75. (Seriously) his cheap lawyers try to cover his tracks even know they truly know he's a con man in true form.
Mr. Woods also has "dealings" and an "associate" named: John Robison (big playAR) who seemed to have signed on documents vouching for Woods. His shady lawyers are named Mark Daniel Melnick, konwn as: Dan Melnick. The other is Eugene Alkana.
