No Credibility

AUTHOR: JC - (United States of America)

Downing Quit with the ridiculous posts pretending to be someone else supporting your position. Not only is it obvious, but your lack of good grammar and spelling lends no credibility to your message. Everyone knows you are a con artist and scammer, so it is not likely that someone could blackmail you by threatening to reveal that info. No one in their right mind believes that ex-employees are coming to your defense. And quit trying to get people to believe you are the victim of a con and blackmail scam. And quit playing the illness card, it is disrespectful to those who truly are ill. Like all scammers, it will catch up with you and you will find yourself where you belong prison. Maybe Ill visit ya, so I can look you in the eye, laugh at you, and flip you the bird in person. There is a special place in hell for people like you; hope you enjoy.

Need to learn how to type

AUTHOR: Alias - (USA)


You need to learn how to type first before you can file rebuttals as ex-employee. Who is kidding who here, I checked the computer after you moved out and you are the ex-employee because it showed it in the internet log. It is a shame that you can not stand up and face what you have created in ruining so many people's lives. You have taken so many people's trust as well as hundreds of thousand of dollars and ran!! You do not know how close you were to being arrested on Vieques for stolen property. The property in question was the motorbike that was in your ex-girlfriends name that you sold on the island. She has the paperwork which the police have on Vieques and Ceiba. The reason I know this to be factual is because I was there at the police station when this took place!!!! As for the warrants, I think you need to get in touch with the Police Department in Las Vegas because these do exist!! I have talked to the Detective that is in charge of your case as well as the realtors in Las Vegas that you scammed. As for mental illness, stop using it as an excuse, if your off medication then get some!!! I think you can buy your medication if you stopped playing cards at the casino. If you want to do the right thing, turn yourself in and plead with the court for help!! Then you would have medication and a place to live for many years, you may have to watch out in the shower but that is a small price to pay for what you have done!!!!! Set an example for your 3 children, Man UP!!!!

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Out of business permantely

AUTHOR: Aka alias - (United States of America)

If they truth be told...the pastor you refer to is a convicted drug dealer that conned and blackmailed sean back into the seminar business after he was committed to a mental hospital. He almost forced him to be his and blackmailed him to try and speak again. To no avail, and caused another memtal breakdown that he has not and probably will not ever recover from. He in fact tried to overdose in puerto rico. He is severly bi polar and off medication. He is not wanted by FBI, as he has had run ins with law enforcmemt and no such warrants exist. I have also contacted them and confirmed there are no pending matters. As for his ex, she also blackmailed him and conned him to be a money producer for jer, when he refised and quit speaking on stage, there was a domestic violence with a deadly weapon arrest made against thr ex gorlfriend in ceiba pierto rico. Where she pulled a knife on him. She was arrested. Immediately after that he had left and moved to vieques puerto rico,with another mental breakdown. Be advised, he is unedicated for mental illness. He is declared mentaly imcompetent and has a list of mental illness, bi ploar 1 with pyscptoc episodes. Clinical depression,anxiety disorder, and boderline personality disorder. I know him somewhat weell, and i can assire you he will never recover from these severe illnesses. He is a very lost,dazed, and confused mentally ill person. You should try to help him and get him treatment. He has attempted suiced in the last yeat in nevada, puerto rico 2 times, and in mossissippi where he was committed to a mental hospital. He needs serious help. I do have recent knowledge as of mid june he was in a homeless shelter in old san juan puerto rico amd is trying to fond help and medicine to battle a mental hell he lives everyday. It he doesnt geteds his days will be numbered as he will try suocide again and eventually suceed. On another take, everyone should know prior to 2009, before his mental disease got worse and out of control, he was a great speaker, business man, an ex vice president of a fortune 500 company, and very respected as a super natural salesperson. He also changed hundreds if not thousands of lives for great success.
it is a shame that people dont understand what untreated mental illness can do to a person, and that lack of help that exists in helping the hurting. It was only after sean saw dr. Paul young in baytpwn texas, and was prescibed a cocktail of physcotic drugs for his diseases that he really went off the deep end. That was in late 2008, and a man that made(not stole) high six figures and maybe seven figures, endied up with 4suicede attempts, 1 coma, and 2 commitments to a mental hopital.
get all the facts straight and do just spread gossip and hearsay. The majority of commenys posted are from personal people in his life he barely new and have not even a clue who amd what he was before hos brain has been so dramatically effected by disease and physcotic medicines.
god bless him, dont d**n a once great person. We all live in glass houses, beware of stones being thrown at yours..

Charles/Sean Downing on the RUN!!!

AUTHOR: Alias - (USA)

I had the displeasure of meeting Charles/Sean Downing (Same Person) in Puerto Rico. I was on an extended vacation living on the island of Vieques and the main island of the Puerto Rico. I met Sean and his girlfriend and was renting from them. Within the first week of living there I had found out that he has ripped off many people across the United States. He stole almost 100K from a pastor, $$ from realtors in Las Vegas, Texas, Arizona and who knows where else. This guy currently has the FBI looking for him as well of multiple states. I spoke to the Detective in Las Vegas as well a couple of realtors across the country letting them know where he was staying. This guy is so bad that his girlfriend who is a disabled vet was ripped off for almost 70K. The girlfriend and him broke up and he was living on Vieques, PR. He only lasted about a week on the island because he tried to pickup older women of means. The island is small & everyone looks out for each other and it did not take long before he had a sign on his back. He was last seen taking the last ferry on a Sunday to the main island. I know he is low on cash because he was selling everything he could of his stuff as well as his ex-girlfriends things that he had stolen. I assisted her in going to police in Puerto Rico but he had left before they could arrest him. I do know he checks the website because the employee responses you have seen are by him!!! I will post to the other reports on this website so others will know the latest. Charles/Sean I can not wait to read your arrest on the web!!!!
