I can not say this any better than it is said in the above text. I have been ripped off for many thousands of dollars from all of these people in 2007. No one from this group will take any phone calls to answer my questions or others who invested their hard earned money.

Approximately 18 months ago I was approached by Jack Phillips regarding investing money into an Emerald Program that was being offered by a man whom I met in Elisabeth-town Kentucky named Elliott James. I was introduced to Elliott James while I was attending the grand opening of Swainson Hawk's restaurant; simply called Hawk's. At that time Elliott James was the Vice President of Guardian International Travel.

The Elliott James proposition was as follows: for every dollar I was willing to invest in the Emerald program, I would receive three times the money I invested within 90 days from the time I wired money to Paul E. Emerson of Little Rock Arkansas at Bank of America. Paul E. Emerson was the attorney handling the financial end of this transaction. Elliott James also stated that he expected the transaction to yield the 3 for 1 result within 30 days, not 90 days since they already had buyers for the Emeralds.

Elliott James stated that he loved the people who had participated in the Guardian International Travel program, and wanted to show his appreciation by allowing a select group of G.I.T. leaders and others to benefit from this incredible opportunity he had through a female missionary/pastor he had known for over 15 years named Gail Kato.

He further stated I would be able to continue this process of tripling my money by effectively rolling over the newly tripled balance every 30 days through this Emerald program; and that I would have access to this money whenever I wanted it.

He also told me, and the rest of the group called The Precious Few on a conference call, who like me, had invested their money into the Emerald Program that we would all become multi million heirs before 2007 was over through this alleged Emerald program.

Elliott James made this statement to me as well as others of The Precious Few: that because we had trusted him through the Emerald Program, we would also become beneficiaries of: various Gold Mines, Diamond Mines, other precious metals and precious stones. In the same way Elliott James had promised each of us the Emerald program would deliver we could expect these other commodities to work for us. The difference this time would be that we would not have to invest any of our own money. He would just allow each of us to benefit from it without a cost or additional investment on our part. Again because of our trust and faith in him in the Emerald program and our participation in G.I.T. he wanted to help us achieve financial freedom.

Another big draw to the Emerald program was that Elliott James promised everyone in The Precious Few they would receive an Emerald as big as our fist that would be of the very highest quality. Unfortunately, we have not realized any benefit from the promises Elliott James has made to us or any communication in many months.

There were other key players who are involved directly or indirectly. There seems to be a pattern devolping in how the public is being scammed. First they get you excited about their program like G.I.T. by starting to make payments to us as they promised. Then when they have gained your confidence, they offer you a new and much more lucrative deal like an the Emerald Program. Once they have your money they won't talk to you any more. They just have your money and use people like Jack Phillips to try and placate you until the statute of limitations runs out. The people you want to look out for are named: Swainson Hawke, Elliott James, Gail Cato, Elaina Lance, Paul E. Emerson and Sheila Marrical (girlfriend or wife of Elliott James). These guys change their names slightly or significantly depending on what appears to be a money laundring scheem that they move money through ficticous businesses.

Mrs. Gee is being threatened by Gail Cato's and Elaina Lance's attorney to be sued for 5 million dollars; for defaming their sparkling clean names. If you are so innocent then why don't you take Mrs. Gee to court and prove your innocence? Let me answer that question for you. It's because a liar and a scammer do not have much to chance of winning their case. If you go to court you will owe multiples of what you threatened Mrs. Gee for. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

If you and your group of theives don't pay everyone in the Precious Few all of the money you owe them, you won't have to sue Mrs. Gee. The "Precious Few" will be glad to meet you in court and prove the words that Mrs. Gee has written about you. If you want to resolve this problem without the court being involved, contact the Precious Few and make plans to pay us. If not, then plan of facing the Judge.

Up-Date on Jack Phillips of Lebanon Oregon

AUTHOR: Time For Justice - (USA)

This post is on Patrick Pretty . com  go to the web-site and look at the picture... This man (photo left) has been identified by a PP Blog reader as Jack Phillips, a suspect in an alleged swindle involving investments in purported emeralds.

Phillips, 77, is a resident of Oregon. He was charged criminally last week in Salt Lake County, Utah, in the alleged emeralds caper.
Zeek Rewards listed a member by the name of Jack Junior Phillips, according to materials viewed by the PP Blog. Zeeks Jack Junior Phillips was a Diamond member and appears to be associated with a Oregon entity known as Yes You Can LLC.

The Blog is seeking to determine conclusively if the Jack Phillips pictured on the left and associated with the alleged emeralds fraud is the same Jack Phillips associated with Zeek Rewards as a diamond affiliate.

Two readers now have contacted the PP Blog, saying they were swindled by Jack Phillips in the alleged emeralds fraud.
We were solicited by Jack Phillips to [triple] our money in a matter of 90 days, one reader wrote.

The other reader asserted that the alleged emeralds caper involved a purported showing of the precious gems in Sarasota, Fla.
There were more than 30 families involved in this scam, the reader wrote.

THIS RIP-OFF SCAM HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1980'S.I guess somebody just got out of jail and they are trying it again...

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

One of my sisters and her then-husband were invited to an ultra-exclusive home in a certain upscale neighborhood in a certain Texas city.

THERE, A COUPLE OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING A GUY WHO CLAIMED TO BE THE SON OF YVES ST,LAURENT AND HIS PERSONAL ASSISTANT AND A BUNCH OF OTHER CON FOLKS WHO WERE WELL-DRESSED AND APPEARED WELL-HEELED COMPLETE WITH THE FLASHY CARS OUTSIDE AND WHAT LOOKED LIKE NICE FURNITURE WERE INTO THE EMERALD SELLING SCAM!

HIGH-POWERED COCKTAILS presumably to get you intoxicated to lower your resistance to their line of bull, WERE BEING PASSED AROUND AS WERE BEAUTIFUL AND EXQUISITE APPETIZERS ON GORGEOUS TRAYS.

It was ALL A SCAM.

That was in 1989 or so, I think.

I wasn't interested in hearing the spiel because my silly,pretentious, name-dropping sister and my upwardly mobile, arrogant then-brother in law and I just were not in the same social circles or even on the same planet....

But when I read your details of the EMERALD BUYING SCAM, it all came back to me now.

Reminded me of a lot of those con artists who wanted to drop names around to a bunch of ignorant, nouveau riche Texans with all of those high tech salaries.....

There was a FAKE attorney involved in this because my sister at least had the sense to give me the RSVP elaborate, even gaudy invitation that she had received that had been mailed to her and her then-husband's company...

I don't know if his name was Paul or not but I called the number and I got the same spiel that you all did, I wrote down the names of everybody and did not find this guy was in the Bar Association of the State where he claimed to practice. Oh oh!

It all sounds so good, so clannish, so "Our Crowd of the rich, famous and beautiful"..only whoever the bozo was who was posing as Yves St, Laurent's son, he wasn't...

The emeralds were supposed to come from Brazil and allegedly the St, Laurent designer company had bought more of them than they needed for their new jewelry line and so for some fees up front, the personal assistant would have people go to Brazil and fetch the surplus emeralds and sell them in the US and everyone would get a share of the profits depending on how much earnest money they invested. It sounded way too good to be true.

I dug some more and the price they claimed they were going for were NOT what MY jewelry store owning and gem-dealing friends were paying for emeralds. Of course.

I told my sister and brother in law NOT to waste their money or their time. The cars had been leased.The house had been leased. Who knows where they got the clothes and it was a beautiful package but nothing but hot air inside...


And that was the LAST I heard of the EMERALD SCAM

UNTIL NOW.

Thanks for bringing back some memories.

THIS IS A REAL SCAM.

DON'T FALL FOR IT and if you did, I am sorry for you.
Consider it VERY expensive tuition in the hard knocks school of real life.
CHECK IT OUT BEFORE YOU INVEST IN ANYTHING!
