Our mother bought $200,000 worth of gold from Kimberly Bodnar the owner of Genesis Gold and Silver in Agoura Hills, CA. Since Kimberly, is a family member through a divorced marriage we believed that she would deliver the gold we bought from her.

Our mother delivered a check to her and she told my mom that she would temporarily store the gold for her. And we believed that she would. A few months later in November of 2006 we found out that Genesis had closed. Till this day she has NEVER delivered the gold - she took our mother's money and NEVER delivered any of the gold.

She has scammed many other investors by taking their money and never delivered the gold that they had bought. We haven't heard from her, we have to sit by her gate at the end of her driveway to even attempt to try and talk to her. She doesn't even give us the time of day - let alone the courtesy of returning a phone call with an honest answer.

KIMBERLY - that was OUR FAMILY'S SAVINGS. WE DON'T HAVE $200,000 TO JUST THROW AWAY ESPECIALLY ON A SCAM INVESTMENT LIKE NUMISMATICS. THAT WAS ALL THE MONEY SHE HAD AND SHE TRUSTED YOU YOU ROBBED HER. EVEN IF YOU DID HAVE THE GOLD, YOU CHARGED HER SO MUCH COMMISSION; SHE WOULD NEVER MAKE UP THE FEES.

SHAME ON YOU AND YOU HAVEN'T EVEN ATTEMPTED TO GET HER MONEY OR ANYTHING BACK FOR HER. WE TRUSTED YOU MY FAMILY TRUSTED YOU! YOU STOLE HER SAVINGS, KIMBERLY - WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE THAT BACK TO HER-IT'S BEEN MONTHS. YOU HAVE A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE IN THE MALIBU HILLS. THIS IS HOW YOU TREAT YOUR FAMILY??? HOW DO YOU TREAT YOUR OTHER INVESTORS THAT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW?

Kimberly previously worked at LEAR FINANCIAL Inc in Santa Monica, CA where she was nicknamed QUEEN, she was the Vice President for eight years and then was FIRED by the President, Kevin D. DeMeritt in December of 2005. As far as we know, she didn't steal clients' money at that company. ***While at Genesis Kimberly would also sell under the name ELIZABETH Bodnar, FAKING that she was her own sister, and working at the same gold company. She's white, 5'2" approx. 160 lbs, blonde hair, 47 and CLAIMS to be Jewish Hungarian.

KIMBERLY BODNAR IS BREAKING THE LAW BY NOT DELIVERING OUR FAMILIES AND OTHER INVESTORS GOLD OR MONEY.

Do your research before investing in anything, especially numismatics- always. EVEN if the person you're investing with is somehow a member of your family, we learned the hard way! Numismatics is not regulated like stocks or bonds, they are, however REQUIRED BY LAW to deliver the actual physical gold, silver, coins, etc to you. *Not regulated like stocks or bonds and not limited to the fact that one does NOT HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED, nor graduate high school, nor have a GED nor have any type of series certification, like a series 7or 63to be a broker or PORTFOLIO MANAGER for numismatics/ GOLD and SILVER ASSETS. LOOK IT UP.

If you want BULLION these brokers/advisors/portfolio managers will PUSH you to buy numismatic coins, i.e. Saint Gaudens, Liberty's, Indians as this is where their commission is made.

Kimberly's pitches included and probably still include the following: gold has been on earth since the beginning of time...paper money is fake... the end of the US economy is near and gold is needed to protect your assets and loved ones. She talks A LOT about being a single mother to get better acquainted to potential investors and make her SEEM like a good, hard working person ask her why she got FIRED from LEAR FINANCIAL.

She also constantly quotes BIBLE scriptures in her pitches.

She uses religion A LOT to get potential investors to give her money as she advertised in Christian magazines, websites and radios, this was to make people automatically believe that she held Christian values A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF DECEPTIVE advertising as she continually and blatantly stole money from others.

Look Kimberly up on people finder, her akas are Kimberly Elizabeth Eliza Hwang- Vodnar - Bodnar, and what ever name she is using - DO NOT TRUST HER with your hard earned money.

If you have been scammed by Kimberly Bodnar or Elizabeth Bodnar of Genesis Gold and Silver file your report with the Los Angeles District Attorney, Steve Cooley.

Kimberly Bodnar is living well after ripping me and others off

AUTHOR: Karma - (USA)

I bought gold from her company in Agoura Hills. I spent $20,000. I never received anything and when I tried to contact the company, Genesis Financial, there was no way to get in contact with a nybody.  She went by Kimberly Bodnar and other times she would pretend over the phone that she was her imaginary sister "Elizabeth Bodnar". Elizabeth is actually Kimberly's real middle name. I hired a  lawyer and found out there was not much I can do because in 2005/2006 she filed bankruptcy. It seems that she is still selling gold as a saleswoman somewhere in the Los Angeles or Ventura County area and from what her social media shows, business is pretty good. Although she is traveling the world, it seems she does not have the integrity or correct moral compass to pay back people she lied to. I am still trying to get in contact with anybody that may help me get my money back. 

Here are some recent photos of Kimberly, do not do business with this woman!!

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Why are you not filing with the authorities against Kimberly Bodnar?

AUTHOR: Debra - (USA)

I personally am fully knowledgeable about the actions of Kimberly Bodnar as recently as a few months ago. She is I believe a sociopath. She is presently working at Lear Capital in Santa Monica which used to be Lear Financial, please note they also have a new address. She is using the name of Elizabeth Bodnar. She said she cannot be found through her residence as she has leased a new home in Tarzana under someone else's name. She is fully cognizant of what she has done and is purposely hiding from people that are looking for her. She lost her home in Malibu to foreclosure. She then was evicted from her former home in Camarillo  where she leased the home under her ex-husband Robert's legal name. She was evicted from that home as she literally destroyed it and left the owners devastated. And now she and her daughter reside in Tarzana in a huge 6,000sq. ft. home with her usual live in house keeper Rocia. She continues to make 50,000+ a month and lives BIG while not caring who or what she has or is destroying in the process. If you victims want justice served you need to file with the DA fraud division (their # is 213-974-3612). I also see that she crossed state lines which you then would also need to file with the FBI. You must be diligent as they are inundated and this is just another case. The media is helpful in a situation like this as well.  You must push for them to hold her accountable. She committed blatant fraud. I believe she spent all the money on her personal life with no intention whatsoever of delivering the gold and it was a great deal more than what is mentioned in these few complaints. There are many more victims. My heart goes out to you. I can be reached through my log-in information at RIPOFF and if I can be of further help please notify me. I am embarrassed to say that she used to be a friend of mine. I think she is evil with no conscience nor heart and one way or another she needs to be behind bars.

Good Luck!! & God Speed
