Jowen Sapiano Almost defrauded me and several others. He had several very smart individuals convinced that he was a Big-League business man. THANK GOD WE BACKED OUT OF HIS SCHEME BEFORE FORKING OVER ANY MONEY!

I am an engineer at a well-known defense/aerospace company. My career is to design advanced airplanes. Myself and several other extremely smart engineers (including a business manager and a NASA space shuttle astronaut) were convinced by Mr. Sapiano that he had developed a business opportunity for a vehicle design that one of us had conceived.

Sapiano convinced us that: he had connections with the Vice President of Oracle Computers and the V.P. of Nike. He said: "I can have a meeting with either of them in 15 minutes". He also claimed to have friends who were documentary film producers with National Geographic. I now believe this was all just a CON JOB.

Sapiano stated that: he was "making $52,000 per week" trading stock options. I now believe this was just a CON JOB.

Sapiano convinced us that: he was one of the founders of Digital Island, a multi-billion dollar corporation. I now believe this was just a CON JOB.

Sapiano convinced us that: his brother-in-law is one of 5 owners of a venture capital firm that has several $Billion$ dollars of capital to invest. One of the other four owners is supposedly Steve Young, the NFL quarterback. I now believe this was just a CON JOB.

Apparently the CON was to get us convinced that he could turn our design concept into a business, generating million of dollars of profits - IF ONLY WE COULD COME UP WITH A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS EACH IN INITIAL INVESTMENT! I now believe this was just a CON JOB.

Mr. Sapiano; you seem to be good at convincing people of things, just like a CON ARTIST. You've got my phone number. Please call me, let me record the call, and convince me that the SPECIFIC claims you have made are true. If we had recorded you when we had the chance, you would be in prison today!

CAUTION! This guy convinced 4 of the best, brightest, most savvy engineers and managers at our nation's premier defense contractor, and one US Air Force officer that he is a multi-million-dollar businessman and entrepreneur, and could make us all wealthy. He even got us to start recruiting our friends into his scheme! His attempted fraud lasted for months, but we still didn't see through it. We were often meeting in his home, and he in our homes; but, we were not able to see through him. HE IS SLICK. HE EVEN SEEMS TO BELIEVE HIS OWN STORIES.

It is unfortunate that he succeeded in swindling one of us out of thousands of dollars. Thank God he didn't get any more money out of the rest of us. USE EXTREME CAUTION WITH JOWEN SAPIANO.!!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

DID SAPIANO CHANGE HIS NAME? He didn't exist until a few years ago.

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

How can a guy this important not show up on any records until less than a decade ago? And, by the way, Not show up on ANY record currently indicating ANY of the involvement with great things mentioned by both his critics and supporters herein?

I investigate guys like this for a living. What I find remarkable is a lack of information on a 43 year old guy. He and Stephanie bought a house in 2005 that does not befit $52,000.00 a week but it isn't a mobile home either. Usually hucksters leave a pretty wide trail. So far as military claims go, I used to come up from Coronado to Port Hueneme. I was TAD with EOD 19 and our diving was done off the channel islands and had no civilians what so ever. Maybe yes, maybe no he trained some of my team mates but I doubt it.

I suspect he writes a check with his mouth that his a** can't cover. I will will look further into the matter.
