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

Now for the sake of this report I will call myself Troy?? This letter is aimed fair and square at Bernard Brien (BO) of Discovery Beach Australia??

Now calling them selves Green Planet Management

The web site above is just simply a copy of the Discovery Beach (DBA) web site with a few names changed to suite the new name, (DBA) web site I notice is now parked. The only real difference that I can see is that instead of charging $399.00 or 400.00 pounds, (depending upon which country you live in) they are now offering the first stage assessment soft wear for free (FSA) wow!!! what a deal.

I can only say at this point that I am another victim of these rip off merchants, everything that I am going to dot point (and much more) is verified in all of the current rip off reports on your site

1. They ask you to fill out a first stage assessment (FSA)

2. You then get a 30 to 40 page report (looks to be fairly generic) outlining problems that they have discovered in the (FSA). Part 2 of the (FSA) are recommendations on what needs to be done to address these problems. The (FSA) includes one paragraph on how interested they are in your project blaba, blaba!!

3. Then comes the trap!!! They then send you a Strategic Review Analysis (SRA) asking you for an amount of money usually between $20,000.00 and $30,000.00 which they claim will make the relationship work because they are supplying the bulk of the money to make the project ready for investment, they also say that providing that you follow the recommendations, the Discovery Beach Guarantee is that your project will receive funding and it will take 3 to 5 weeks to get the project investment ready

4. Now the bottom line hear is that BO wouldn't know the first thing about how to run a business, let alone start one, or draft a business plan.

After reading the other reports on your site everybody has been Fu*** over using the same tactic, and as the old saying goes done like a dinner how many more people are falling for this, to (DBA) its like taking candy from a baby.

Before I met (BO) if somebody had told me about this mob I probably would have been like the preverbal ostrich and ignored it.

Now if anybody is not aware BO attends, and is a guest speaker (or so he says) at the Corporate Social Responsibility Summit (CSR). It would be interesting to hear his version of Corporate responsibility

Dear Bernard O'Brien

AUTHOR: Joe - (United Kingdom)

Dear Mr O'Brien,

You are well documented as being a liar and con man. Why then do you not recognize that we can't all be wrong. Maybe it's you.

You run your global empire without either financial support or money to back up you offer letters to people who genuinely seek assistance to get there honest business up and running.

You were born a liar and will remain a liar no matter what. You are clearly an arrogant idiot. Anyone can make a mistake, you simply keep repeating it instead of learning from it.

We all know about your re-branding of Discovery Beach to Green Planet Management, and all of your Herbalife activities.

There is no fool like and old fool. However, a drunken fool takes some beating.

I recommend anyone who finds this site to post your comments in regards to Discovery Beach and the con they have been selling round the world.
