I met Dan as Michael Remdey with Investar Holdings a few months ago! His real name is Daniel Austin Levy, but he changes his name, company, address and phone number often to continue scamming people.
He stole $1800 from me, and $2500 from my friend.
He is a sociopath and does nothing but lie and scam. He sounds sweet and charming and "seems" to really know his stuff. He is smooth talking and you will believe every word he tells you.
Dan told me his "investment" was as safe as putting your money in a bank account. He sent and signed contracts with me and told me that my initial investment was "guaranteed." He is a con artist who claims he has a sports arbitrage program and he make returns of 50% weekely. Really he does not do arbitrage at all. He is addicted to gambling and just bets straight up (and loses) everyone's money. [continued below]....
I invested $1800 and he would send me weekly "numbers" and reports telling me how much money I was making. When my account grew to over $5000, I asked for a withdrawl of just over half. It never came, he stalled and gave me a million excuses...and finally he told me Bookmakers processors had be seized and shut down and I couldn't get my money out. All of which was BS.
He claims he works for Bookmaker and they pay his phone bill, computer, office space, etc...but this is all a lie. He claims he is a big shot in the gambling world and has all these connections.
We actually became "friends" and I was able to get alot of information about him and his life. We talked every day and I saved every email, chat session, photo, etc. I will be taking full legal action against Mr. Levy and I can provide his full details to anyone who was also scammed and would like to go to the authorities. It is hard to press charges when he used fake names, addresses, corporations...but I have ALL his real info.
He brags of millions of dollars in offshore accounts in Malta, but really he lives in a tiny apartment in Santa Clara, CA and drives a Honda Civic.
When all of his lies finally caught up to him, he broke down and told me everything. I have his "confessions" saved on chat. No one has ever made money. He just takes everyone's money and gambles it away (no arbitrage.) He uses fake names/corporations to hide behind. That way he isn't responsible for his "fake" contracts he signs with you. He wasn't my "friend" and stole my money and lied to me about it for months.
He also claims to invest in Forex, stocks, etc. and sells shelf corporations and tradelines. All of this is all a scam too. He will just steal your money and you will never see a thing from him. Search for him on Ripoff Report and you will see all the trouble/scams he has been involved in.
He has used the names Daniel Austin Levy, Daniel Levy, David Likten/Lichten, Michael Remdey and I am sure countless others. He has had the companies Symtek Solutions, Investar Holdings, Incorpo Enterprises, New Business Network Solutions. (These are ones that I KNOW of...but may be many others.)
Known emails he uses/has used are: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com.
His current phone number is: 408-550-3220, but I am sure he will change as soon as I post this.
He lives (and "works") out of the Bay Area....Santa Clara/San Jose area. But will claim he is from Palo Alto. He may or may not work with a girl name Kristina (in the photo.) He claims this is his girlfriend of 5 years, but there is NO way she can actually live with him and not know what is going on, so I believe she may be an accomplice.
The photo of his ID posted on here IS him, but the birthdate has been doctored. His real birthdate is: 02/13/87. That's right, a 24 year old has stolen and scammed half a million dollars (or more) from people!!
He is originally from Palm Beach Gardens, FL and has scammed people there as well. His family is still in that area. His Dad is an attorney there, maybe that is why he thinks he can get away with his crimes. I have his parents info, family/friends, contacts, his SSN, addresses, IDs, etc. which I will be giving to the authorities in both FL and CA.
Let's get this guy and get our money back, and make sure he NEVER scams someone again. He deserves to be in jail.
Daniel Austin Levy is a con artist, scammer, sociopath/psychopath, liar, gambling addict, and terrible person who has no conscience. He needs to be stopped!!!
