BRMP Robert Barnes Blue Rock Minerals Platform, Robert Barnes, Global Equities Investment Group Inc. Lie Cheat and Steal telling us we are being paid but never delivering Chicago Illinois
We invested with a company called Blue Rock Minerals Platform (BRMP) who is operated and managed according to their website and our contract by Robert Barnes of Global Equities Investment Group, Inc. in Chicago, Il. They supposedly trade in industrial diamond platforms with pre-vetted buyers. Their contract stipulates that we would be paid our profits every 30 days, as well as a concrete beginning and end date.
Everything was fine for the first few months as we received regular wire transfers. The money stopped coming after October of last year and when we made inquiries, we were told in writing that it would be only a few days, or next month, etc. For over a year we were told the bank screwed things up, or the FBI was holding the money because of the origin of funds. We were even told that US Customs was holding our money, despite the fact that they do not have any authority over digitally transfered funds.
Most recently we were told our money would be in our account in "24 hours," which of course did not happen.
I asked for proof from Robert Barnes and Blue Rock Minerals Platform (BRMP) that they had the money to pay us back and was told that no company in the world would show me their accounts.
Additionally, we are constantly being told our investment is "guaranteed" and "insured". Another family member who invested filed his "insurance" claim and his still not received his money, despite the 10 day payback they told him about.
Every time we press, we are told we dont know what we are talking about, and that our money is "being prepared for release" or that "we are waiting for confirmation from the bank and will pay you immeditely" and that they have been doing this longer than we have been alive. Another comment made by BRMP and Robert Barnes was that they are an open book and that he has never been involved in any litigation.
The fact that they have consistently lied and misled us with the promise of our money and returns is what has kept us from filing reports or law suits for so long, but we are done with that.
If BRMP is not a scam or Ponzi scheme, then we would have been paid by now. If BRMP or Robert Barnes ran a legitimate company, they would share with us the real and documented reasons why we have not been paid, and give us an acutal legitimate timetable of when we can expect our money. But they consistently refuse to do that.
The only thing that makes any sense based on their refusal to share information or return our money is that this is a scam or ponzi scheme.
