Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I met Daniel Birkett  back a few years ago . He was a regular at the pub I hung out at in Victoria BC Canada.
He say's he was an investment banker . We met almost every week at the pub.
I got a car accident claim  last summer and Dan told me he could make some money off it for me if I invested it.
I gave him $5000 at first and he told me later that month I was making money.
About two months later he met me again and said he had a great opportunity to invest in stocks and that I could make some quick cash he asked for $5000 more. I trusted him and wired him $5000 more.

After a month he told me that I made $7000 on the investments and that he would wire me the money. That was two weeks ago.
I called and e-mailed but no answer. He is hard to get a hold of sometimes as he say's he is travelling on business.
I received an e-mail last week saying he would meet up with me and talk and then that was the last time we spoke.
I now have e-mailed and called and left many messages only to have nothing in return

No way to charge Dan

AUTHOR: - ()

 Good day,

I have no way of getting the police involved....due to the fact that I was willing to give the money so not really a fraud, according to the police.

They said I can take him to court and fight but no criminal charges can be laid.

 

I would love to get my hands on him but unfortunately he is far away.

Just a warning he has scammed more than one person.

I hear ther are many others.

 

He took every penny I had and almost put me on the street.

 

I was poor and the money he took was from a settelment from a car accicident.

 If you have any email contact or address I would appreciate the help...I will send him a letter or email stating that I am hot on his trail.

 

Please crush the cockroach if you meet in person.

 

 

Regards,
