To all of the Ripped-off and Scammed families of the Precious Few, GIT, Z-PowerPac, GITinAsia, Multiple One Group and many others. We have been served a GIANT injustice.
HOPEFULLY, other investors will do their homework and look for postings like this before making investments and BEWARE of whom they are dealing with before it is too late. Know how these people work before you get involved.
Check out everything you can think of before you invest. Personal names, business names, addresses, etc.
In 2006, my family was invited to join and become a member of Guardian International Travel also known as GIT (mulit-level-marketing). Then as an addition to the package join Z-PowerPac and Global Cruise Cards. The final investment was the biggest, The Precious Few - Emerald Investments.
This is my story - it will give you the reader an idea of how these people work. If one investor learns from the mistakes I have made this post is worth every dollar I lost.
Once the scammers know that your trust factor has been established and your confidence level in them is high a new deal is in already in the works. The scammers have your money in hand - the business as you know it, contact names, phone numbers will all disappear.
January 2007, twenty plus families were invited to invest in an EMERALD deal, which would bring substantial financial benefits. This group of families was known at first as the Secret Society, then changed and now known as The Precious Few.
The Precious Few invested over a million and a half dollars buying emeralds that were to be bought in Brazil and then re-sold for a substantial increased investment. By investing we would receive three times the money invested within 90 days or less of sending the monies. With many, many more deals that could lead to re-investing in diamonds, as well.
Elliott James and Jack Phillips said many times that they loved helping people and that this is one way to show us how Elliott felt, and reassured the investors that this was a "no risk deal" and that they wanted each one of us "the investors" to reap the benefits with the financial freedoms we would each receive.
I myself asked Jack about signing a contract and I quote this from Jack's mouth "An Oral contract is all we need because of the trust we have in each other".
Quote by Jack Phillips - "We will be sending out a "NICE" sample emerald to everyone who invested, so that you can see what quality stones we are dealing with".
Jack was being used to pass the information to the group. Be it right or wrong, lies or the truth, Jack Phillips was a regular caller.
And of course, samples were never intended to be sent to investors.
We were also told that we were to discuss this deal with NO one, and that Swainson Hawke didn't even know about the deal. Jack Phillips would call every few days with what we thought were promising, truthful updates. Updates, that the emeralds had been sold and the "GIRLS" were working on it, in finalizing the deal. (Let's see if we can figure out who the "GIRLS" are ?) Gail Cato, and Elaina Lance. (Their names were mentioned over and over again) Then, at last, the calls started coming that the deal was done and the buyers had the emeralds had been in fact SOLD and transfers would start being made to our accounts.
Somewhere in the middle of this Swainson Hawke gets involved, but we The Precious Few, already knew he was "somehow".
The Precious Few were then approached to do an Entity contract- documents were e-mailed or faxed from Elaina. The Precious Few were told to wire or send monies to Paul E Emerson as listed on the documents to open these so called trusts.
Then, each investor in the group received a Letter from Konny Lite stating that we would only receive what was originally invested not the original oral agreement of three times our original investment in 90 days or less. This letter stated that we were to sign over a statement stating we all understood what we were signing.
As a group The Precious Few said NO. And now we will fight for what we believe rightfully belongs to the Precious Few.
PS... Remember there are twenty more families out there in cyberland with the same story
Member of The Precious Few
