I had dealings with Derek Paul Gendron/ Grand Rapids Ventures back in 2010 and I honestly can't believe
that Mr. Gendron is up to his same online scams. As I stated back in 2010 I was online at Craigslist under the business section and noticed a Pet Web Store for sale. The ad said any novice could do it and within the first month I would be making upwards of 30,000 a month. I had contacted professionals in the arena of online advertising and search engine support after I bought this so called online pet supply store.....and to make that kind of money I would be spending over 200,000 in advertising including professional search engine support, and that 30k figure was still a very long shot. Mr. Gendron prays on people that are not internet sophisticated, building then up over the phone that any novice can make 30k a month once they they teach them. I had wasted 7800 dollars of good money that could have been put to use in other areas of my life than a cookie cutter cheap website, because thats all it is. [continued below]....
..... Please don't waste your time and money in a junk website that you could go online and buy for 100 dollars.
The reason why people get tricked is because of 2 reasons. The first is that he uses a high dollar amount to purchase the cheap junk website leading to believe that is must be of value or it would't cost that much. The second is that the way the ad is worded is clearly fraud, as one believes that you are buying their online Pet Supply Website. Paul is extremely persuasive over the phone but is no more than a typical scam artist that has perfected his craft. The resident of Michigan has been convicted in the past of embezzelment and was also investigated for welfare fraud. I think it's time I connect with other people who have been taken Mr. Gendron and file a class action lawsuit to stop this fraudster. I think it's also time to contact the FBI on this.
