Edward Jones - Art Zohn International Rep. Group Equistar Comstar International I got involved in an investment scam Edward Jones-International Rep. group,Arthur Zohn-Equistar International Denver Colorado
*Consumer Suggestion: Edward JOnes
This is a very long story, so I'll make it as basic and short as I can.
Over 2 years ago I invested in what a group of people and myself were led to believe was a horse cable channel.
It's name was Equistar International, a horse related company that was to have a channel on cable T.V. for horse enthusiast.
A man named Ed Jones was the CFO and director of this company. We were asked us to invest in Equistar, after it was broadcast World wide and established we would get our money and a profit back.
He showed us documents, land and building titles the company owned. This in a worse case situation would be liquidated and we would receive our money back after a 1 year contract expired. After the year was over we found out he had spent time in prison for armed bank robbery. He did NOT mention this at all.
Basically we got caught up in a scam, the whole thing was a well planed scam and nothing he said was true.
It is now over 2 years later and we haven't seen a dime of our investments. He made numerous promises and letters
that it would be paid very soon. He also said if we had him investigated it would mess things up and it could take years to get our money back (scare tactic) and it did work for a while.
I filed a complaint with Jefferson County district attorney. she looked over all the documents and information I provided. The investigation was forwarded to Colorado Securities Division Investigator They are very good at what they do and easy to talk to.
However they can't by law give us any details about the investigation. I want to take every channel I can to get my money back from him. It's been over 2 years now and I'm afraid he'll run or get away.
Ed's address is
1550 Larimer street.,unit #126 Denver,
Co 80202. And
91 University Blvd. #234 Denver,
it turns out there post office boxes. Ed's phone # is 720-276-8069 turns out it's a cell phone. Ed's email is email@example.com . Occasionally he responds to.
The hard part is going to be finding him, do you do that too? I'd like to know what other avenues I can take to bring him to Justus, I can't afford a lawyer. I've personally invested $11,000.00 in this scam. And fraud companies Jones and Zohn created.
So wouldn't Ed Jones & Art Zohn need to claim this as income on their tax statement for the past 2 years? Ed Jones and Art Zohn can show any proof of a deposit. Not even a statement or any kind of document showing the funds being deposited for Equistar. The funds were supposed to go into an account for Equistar. Basically they stole the money,and now claim The bank they used never existed.
The phone #720-276-8069 is registered to Arthur Zohn.
Secretary of State information shows that the registered officers were Edward Jones and Christian A. Zohn.
There is no record of a Christian A. Zohn in the entire US. I pulled an inquiry on Arthur Zohn and found that he is the party we are interested in and he also had a company called Comstar International.
Corporate records show Arthur M. Zohn and Johnny Wilson as the officers of this business. Interestingly enough... the signatures of Arthur M. Zohn and Christian A. Zohn are exactly the same.
I have located a home address for Arthur M. Zohn at
8251 South Brentwood street Littleton Colorado 80128. And 1020 South Flower street,in Lakewood Colorado.
SS# 523-76-7163, Date of Birth 3/13/51.I have a collection Specialists investagating this mess.
If you have any suggestions for me I would be very
grateful. I don't know what else I can do.
Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
