He took investors money and spent it on his living. He never produced a single tax filing or anything to show where investor money went. Furthermore he fabricated lies about his background and credentials. 

If anyone else has been schemed by this man and currently knows where to find him, you should immediately file a claim and have him served. I am sure there are many people who would like to join that claim.

You are an Extortionist

AUTHOR: Friends & Family - (United States of America)

To anyone in the public who may read this, the claims made here are completely false and a fabrication from start to finish. All of my contact information has remained the same for many years. I am in constant contact with anyone I am doing business with. This poster has contradicted himself several times i.e. from originally saying that I ran (which if you look at how quickly I rebuked this poster, that should tell you, I don't run from anybody or anything, ever), to they're still in contact with me; then, originally speaking on somebody else's behalf, to then saying that they are doing business with me. The reality is, I do not know this person, and I am not in business with this person. This is nothing more than an attempt to slander my good name and extort money from me, as I said prior, it's not going to work. 

We will have the IP Address of this poster very soon. Notice, they have not revealed who they are, I'm not hiding... This person is a punk, and I wish they had the b*lls to stand up like a man and say who they are, they won't do it, because I will come down on them like a hammer. Count on it!!!

Fact, this website has been sued more than 20 times for allowing individuals to post defamatory diatribe about someone they don't like, Do your homework on this site. In fact, when you sign up for this site, you are not required to give your real name, real address, phone number or you real email address. Based on those facts, the site itself and its business model has a major credibility problem, and has receive lots of criticism all over the web, for the way it allows scurrilous cowards to hide and operate. Then this site asks that you pay $2000 to them to have these slanderous untruths removed. Hmmm what do you think?

My contact information is literally all over the web, if anyone reading this wants me to show my legitimacy, you would have more integrity than the miscreant that originally posted this lie. I am easier to find than Texas, so give me a call...

I am finish with this nonsense

#4 General Comment

Garianno is full of crap

AUTHOR: Iknowyou - (United States of America)

He has victims across the country. Check court records in Los Angeles if you can find all his aliases. He has been sued successfully and also evicted. His "address" is a Po box and he claims to be homeless. The easiest way to tell if he is lying is if his lips are moving. Ps slander is spoken, libel is written, but doesn't apply to the truth or Internet forms so good luck!

Garianno

AUTHOR: Doing the right thing - (United States of America)

Garianno,

You may talk tough on the web, but you have been requested many times for documents/filings and would not make your address available to elude the potential of being served. It's unfortunate because we would all love our day in court with you. You may have the same number, but you avoid the people you lied to. This is not slander, it is fact, we have the emails, letters, etc to prove every bit of it. I hope your lawyer does contact the sites admin because it has been made known to the site that we would like to have professional contact and/or state/federal support to bring these corporate and investor frauds to light. I think you know everyone whom invested with you in the film, why not call everyone and start explaining yourself?

Apparently you're very much concerned about what is posted about you online seeing as how you have had such rapid responses. I am hoping to stop people from losing there money to you through your fraud. He may sound educated and have relationships, but find me one person who wrote this man a check in the past and still has a relationship with him. Looking forward to your "lawyer" contacting us as we would love to have someone to deliver this claim to that has been collecting dust. Thanks again, glad we finally got your attention.

You're an Extortionist

AUTHOR: Friends & Family - (United States of America)

You admitted you are an extortionist, we will find out who you are, little man, and you will be sued!!!

There is this person who is a serial slanderer, I hope this person is not behind this because a judge has already ordered you to stop. We will find out, since you want to hide behind a computer.

My phone number, address and email have been the same for many years. I don't run and hide behind a computer like you. 

If you are a real person why don't you pick up the phone and call me like a man? Oh I know why, because you're an extortionist, as you have admitted. Again, it's not going to work. I'm done chatting with you. It's in the hands of the admin of this site and my attorney.

See you soon!

he still doesn't get it

AUTHOR: Doing the right thing - (United States of America)

Garianno's reply is perfect, shows he has ripped off so many people he's not sure who's "extorting" him. It's not extortion to be forced to perform your corporate obligations. Why don't you post an address where people can find you so we may serve you our claim and then we can settle everything with the courts guidance and judgment? 

This man has been on the run from every investor he's ever taken a dollar from. DO NOT give this man a dollar of your money, he is not a good person. He uses illness or tragedy stories as a form of sympathy to get people to invest or be easy on him when they're ready to come after him.

You're an extortionist

AUTHOR: Friends & Family - (United States of America)

I have no idea who this is, or what they are talking about. It is a total lie, from start to finish.
It appears to be someone looking to use this as a way to extort money from me. I am already in contact with the admin for this website, to have this crap removed.

This is the sad part about the internet, anybody can post anything about anyone while hiding behind a computer keyboard. This is the purest form of slander and defamation of character. There are literally thousands of web pages talking about my great work in the Entertainment Industry over the decades, and then there is this single post by a vindictive slanderer and scam artist.

Read between the lines!!!

Notice the person that posted this diatribe, did not say they were involved in any way, also notice that they did not say that they have filed a complaint. This is nothing more than an attempt to force me to give money.

Well, it's not going to work!!!  I am a fighter, and I will fight until my blood runs into the street.

If this person had any balls at all they would contact me directly, and not be a punk and hide behind a computer.

I am going to ask that the person that posted this garbage, take this down, before my attorney finds out who you are, and "YOU" are served with a slander law suit.
