Aloha Everyone -
On July 2, 2012 after a 3 year investigation, The State of Hawaii finally caught up with Nelson Waikiki Jr and his Opunui Water scams. Now that they got Mr. Waikiki Jr. they need to catch the brains behind the scam and his name is Steven Christian DuPont. I am so pleased to announce that Steven Christian DuPont is finally now a wanted man in Hawaii.
In his world, people who report him to the authorities are made the criminals and he is the victim. He posts all their names and personal information on ripoff report to make himself look as if he is the victim. Since he loves to post personal info on others lets do the same shall we?
