Steve Claussen the truth!!

AUTHOR: Mark Maguire - ()

Dear Readers,

It is obvious that Steve Claussen has written the preceeding post. He has spent his entire life scamming people. I was one that he took full advantage of. Please read the following post from the Sturgeon Creek Post and draw your own conclusion. Also if you come in contact with him, contact the R.C.M.P. immediately!

 

Yours very truly,

Mark Maguire.

Infamous merchant storing CO2

 
 

An infamous former Fort merchant is leading a new company hoping to cash in on carbon dioxide storage.

Steve Claussen, owner of a string of failed home improvement shops and a short-lived magazine, is now President and CEO of Capital Reserve Canada. His company plans to fight climate change by storing carbon dioxide in salt caverns near Two Hills.

Claussen achieved his new $360,000/year position in 2008 by selling an oilfield service company, Behral Canada Inc. that he founded to Capital Reserve Canada chairman, and former Alberta Premier, Don Getty.

Capital Reserve Canada announced its carbon dioxide storage plans last year. The company secured $10 million in financing in September of this year. It has, however, yet to apply for government approval for the project.

Claussen, age 37, has a long history in court and in business. He was convicted of assaulting a police officer here in town in 2006, fined $862 and placed on probation for six months. He was convicted in February, 2005, of entering into a prepaid business contract in 2002 without holding the required licence. He was fined $300.

His unsuccessful home improvement shops included two in Fort Saskatchewan. The Design Centre on 99 Avenue operated just five months in 1997 before Claussen was arrested on 25 charges of fraud and failing to inform customers that he had gone bankrupt the year before.

Although Claussen was indeed bankrupt, the charges were dismissed a year later, though not before it was revealed that he had also been convicted of fraud and perjury in 1992, and again on similar charges in 1996.

Claussen then opened another home improvement store in St. Albert, operating it for about two years before it burned to the ground in June, 2000. At the time, Claussen told the Edmonton Journal that he had stores in Sherwood Park and Calgary, and would be rebuilding in St. Albert.

Instead, Claussen moved back to Fort Saskatchewan, opening Spaces Home Interiors on 100 Avenue in 2002. It lasted less than a year. Claussen operated another pair of stores, M-Design and M-Paint on Sherwood Park’s Baseline road in 2003. These stores failed in less than a year.

Claussen’s publishing venture, M-Magazine, printed just one issue in 2005 before collapsing.

Setting the record straight..Steve Claussen

AUTHOR: Mark Maguire - ()

It is pretty obvious that Steve Claussen has posted the previous message as it would relate to me. I would strongly suggest to anybody reading this to check Steve Claussens' backround. Also if you are doing business with him, have a criminal check done in the province of Alberta Canada or if you know of his where abouts, contact the RCMP.

I don't need to dwell any further. Do your own due diligence.

Yours very trily,

 

Mark Maguire.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Re-Gen owner Mark Maguire a Deadbeat

AUTHOR: bhumble - (United States of America)

I am the person who was in China to raise capital for the Re-Gen International project. I was asked by Mark Maguire for someone to translate the projects business plan during a conference call with him and Jeff. I forwarded the contact information for the translator to Jeff Leslie that I understood was being provided to Mark Maguire from St. Albert Alberta. Jeff Leslie and Mr. Claussen were never responsible for these costs. It was clearly understood that Mark Maguire and Ken Sedor's company was responsible for any cost incurred.

Mark Maguire began making excuses to not pay these bills even though all of these cost were to further their business. Mark Maguire of St. Albert alberta is a scam artist who sells used cars and was pretending he had this 600 million dollar business and wasted everyones time. 

Jeff and Steve gave Mark Maguire and Ken Sedor a referral to help them out and this is how they repay them.. by not paying the translater who by the way did an amazing job.

#4 UPDATE Employee

Re-Gen International is a victim

AUTHOR: Ken - (United States of America)

The company was looking for finding. Jeff Leslie and Steve Clausen from Alberta CN were working on getting funding. They said they had a group in China to fund the project.

The contact in China said the information needed to be in Chinese. It was Steve Clausen and Jeff Leslie who hired the company to do the translation. We did not know who they were, and then they came to Regen looking for payment. Jeff Leslie does not or has he ever worked for ReGen.

ReGen is still looking for funding. Clausen and Leslie knew ReGen did not have money? Jeff Leslie has reported numerous times he and Clausen were paying this bill.
