While I cannot comment on report # 524771, or # 523232 as I am not aware of those cirmcumstances, they simply involve the same person, so I can relate.

I was introduceed to Mr Daniel back in 2008 through a mutual friend.  I witnessed Mr Daniel perform services for an individual that I knew, so I felt comfortable enough to send him the $8,000 required for his services in Oct 2008.  During this time, I also witnessed 3 other individuals pay him, and 2 receive what they hired him for, while another was waiting. This was all very reassuring. He did not make me aware that he was involved in a lawsuit where the company he began with his credit serives was sued for, and lost a $435,000 judgment (cause #2007-70109, Harris County, 280th Judicial district) and to his credit, I unfortunitely didnt ask. 

After months of excuses on why my services could not be completed, finally in July 2009, Mr Daniel agreed to refund my money. Now it was always hard to get him on the phone prior to this, but after this, I am lucky if he took 1 call.  He has bascially avoided me at all costs. I have yet to see a dime of my $8,000.  I have left him several phone, text, and email messages, although the email address I had is no longer valid, as once his company was sued and lost such a huge amount, I an only assume he closed all business contact with that company, when he decided to start his "new business" Imagine International LLC. I see his posts online about how wonderful his MLM business is, and hanging out with "losers" is no fun, and yet Mr. Daniels has long spent my $8,000, and avoided me. I simply want my money back. I also know that the other individual did not receive their services either, and are in the same position I am.  He has both our money and will NOT return it.  Theirs is also a 4 figure amount. . [continued below]....


If your new company is flurishing so well Mr Daniels, then where is my money?

I have every text, my copies of the certified funds, along with a personal check all sent to Mr. Daniel.

Mr. Daniel, are you ready to give me my money back??

Imagine International

AUTHOR: Blinky - (USA)

Hi Becky,

Thank you for keeping up the momentum on this con artist.  The money i gave him was taken from a credit card check>  I'm still paying this card since 2008, so as not to ruin my credit.  What  Trent owe's me now is probably triple due to the interests rates I have had to incurr. He has no conscious and has NO intention on paying anyone back. I just dont know how he gets away with scamming people.

I can only assume when Trent contacted me back in April 2010, and asked me to post a comment that he had "reopened" communication with me, it was only because he was in the works on a book deal and being investigated-at least that is what he told me.

I had no problem writing that on here, because he did in fact contact me, but once again, when he got what HE wanted, the little communication he gave has since stopped, and I DO NOT have my $8000 back that Mr. Daniel has had since Oct 2008.  He basically never responds to any texts, or answers any calls. Again, I personally know of 2 other people that are also owed money by Mr. Daniel, and they have no communication with him either. He certainly makes himself appear as though he is just rolling in the dough, and professing he is a multi-millionaire, and yet, I have not seen 1 single penny of my money returned.

I am wondering Trent, has GOD spoken to you today about returning my money?

I have been following this crap from day one and was just informed that the Tariq person who commented in this post has recently had his company shut down because of an investigation by the DEA. 

The company, Label Secure was apparently stealing prescriptions from patients.

Shame, shame, shame!

Please Stop This.

AUTHOR: Imagine International Inc. - (USA)

As the founders of Imagine International we are once again asking that our supporters please discontinue any negative responses to Mr. Tariq Abdul-Hadi.

While there are many slanderous and libelous claims being made by Mr. Abdul-Hadi against this company and its executives, it is not productive for anyone to engage in hurtful and non-productive rhetoric online or anywhere else.

The claims Mr. Abdul-Hadi has made in the emails recently published by Ms. Emily are inflammatory, baseless and completely false. Imagine International and its founders do not take attacks like these lightly but, unlike the court of public opinion, the standard for truth in the legal system is immune to these type of false claims by Mr. Abdul-Hadi and this is where we will soon make our stand.

While the information Ms. Emily uncovered in the course of her investigation was truly helpful and has been turned over to the proper authorities, it must be stated that we do not approve of the use of lies and deception on the part of anyone in our defense.

One thing Mr. Abdul-Hadi has expressed that is the complete truth is that Imagine International and its founders have suffered some financial difficulties over the past 20 months. The position of being unable to meet all of the financial obligations of the business is certainly a difficult one to be in. However, Imagine International and its founders made the decision long ago to press forward through these tough economic times and continue building this company into a wonderful and life changing experience for many.

From a financial standpoint, Imagine International will be reporting tremendous growth in 3rd and 4th quarters and we are making a public statement that ALL creditors, past and present, will be aggressively paid any debt they are owed by the company and/ or its founders.

We do appreciate the concern that so many of you have expressed because we know how frustrating it is to see others try to tear down and destroy but people are free to make choices. If we are to truly progress and be successful we must learn to respect those choices, honor the people who make them, but not allow those choices to have any power over us and our decisions for the future.

Please be advised that this will be the last communication or response from Imagine International or its executives to any posts made on this website.

#7 Consumer Comment

Tariq Abdul-Hadi endorsed commission of a crime against Trent Daniel.


My name is Emily M

This post will be ONLY based on Tariq Abdul-Hadi's own words in emails he has sent to me in the last few days. You can download the complete emails in pdf here(((Redacted))) If the rip off report system strips out the web address to download the files I will repost them and make notice.

I want to express in the beginning of this submission that I am not taking anyones side.  I also want to express that Trent Daniel owes me and my husband money for services we paid for that we did not get, but we do not feel that he stole our money. We know several people in finance related businesses that suffered client losses when the econonmy went bad and Trent has satisfied us that he was one of them. Trent Daniel is a bad communicator and that is the extent of our negative feelings about him.

Now that I have said that I wish to express to you what Mr. Tariq Abdul-Hadi has done and is attempting to do in his organization to SHUT TRENT DOWN.  When I first saw his post about this organization last week I decided to express an interest to join just to see where he was coming from.  I told him I did not want to become a part of a personal battle and this was his response (email dated April 13, 2010 from email address (((Redacted))):

... THIS IS A PERSONAL BATTLE!!! With all of the stories that we can gather, we will be able to approach the Harris County District Attorney and request an investigation that will lead to the following: #1. To put an immediate stop to Trent's deceitful buisness practices. #2. To force the seizure of any assets that Trent and/or his businesses own in order to pay back the victims for their losses. #3. To file criminal charges against Trent for his willful and deliberate intent to deceive investors and consumers....

After seeing where he was going with this I posted a rip off report that said I was leary of his organization and that he made it seem like he had the support of the Harris County DA's office.  I was in error for saying that because that is not what Tariq said.  I promised Tariq I would correct that statement and I am doing so now. 

The problem for us was when Tariq read the statement I made about the DA's office he immediately accused me and my husband of colluding with Trent. In email dated April 15 he said:

 ... I never outed you as a source of information and I suspect that your actions were for no other purpose than to embarrass me at the urging of Trent and maybe others. I never contacted Trent or Imagine International and told them you were communicating with me ...

Whenever challenged, Mr. Tariq always said that someone was embarrassing him and working with Trent. That was not true, but it became a familiar tune over the last few days. To prove this further I asked Mr. Tariq the following questions in an email on April 14.

1. Did Trent try to pay you the money they owed you and why did you refuse to accept it?

2. How many other people have teamed up with you in this organization. You mentioned in your email an investor who lost $50,000 and another who lost more. Are they a part of this because they have much higher amounts lost than I do?

3. Why did they claim you tried to extort the company in a post on ripoffreport.com

4. What is the status of the police report the ripoffreport said was filed against you. This is very important to us because we do not want to get caught up in anything like that?

5. How exactly will we be able to get our money back by working with you?

His only response was to avoid the question and get defensive:

 ... The tone of email was intended to match the tone of your email wherein which you questioned me as though I should be held in skepticism as reflected in your interrogating questions. ...

I told Mr. Tariq in an email from April 15th:

Thanks for you reply. Please understand sir that my questions were legitimate because you are asking people (us) to join you. Questions between partners are okay but as you just said you felt like you were being held in skepticism. I personally think that you tend to give off an air of always being on the defensive.

He responded again only to defend himself by saying on April 16th:

... I think that your judgment of me based on emails is incorrect....I have suffered much to my reputation because I exposed Trent...

Fearing that Mr. Tariq was so obsessed with Trent Daniel even to the point of where he might try to hurt him, his partner and his wife physically, I began to press him harder to see if I needed to alert Trent or the authorities. I said in my next email on April 16:

... You want to take him down but what happens if you do not succeed in hurting him? How far would you go? ....

His response on April 16:

Trent has failed to this day to admit that he wilfully performed acts that he knew were wrong at the time that he committed them. Trent's offer to tell people that he is sorry for failing to communicate with them about the status of why they haven't received the services he promised is not a truthful discourse.

Although Mr. Tariq says Trent was being untruthful he never would answer as to why he believed that. I then lied to Mr. Tariq by saying:

... I do know that Trent and Sarah both have new cars now so they must have found a way to overcome the loss. You posted in the rip off report that them losing the car was a touchdown - they now have two. What good came from that situation? ....

His response was:

... Having went on to acquire two new cars for instance is not an accomplishment when you owe people several thousands of dollars. The first action of Trent should've been to make right what he has done wrong. Some of the people who have lost money with Trent can't go get a new car let alone two....

The problem I had with this is that Trent is making things right.

I lied to Mr. Tariq about the cars to see if he would verify what I was saying or just take me at face value because I said something to confirm his beliefs about Trent.  I then decided to try to steer the situation to the overall reason for the organization as Tariq had stated in his rip off report post.  My email from April 16th said:

 .... If we are going to go to the DA we are going to have to present an organized case that proves crimes have been committed.

1. We need to show that Trent had no intentions of delivering the work people paid for. How do we do this? In our case we can't show that because he successfully did work for the several people who referred us to him so the assumption will be he just failed and owes us money which is civil and not criminal.

2. We should try to get affidavits or the cooperation of the investors to support that Trent lied to them to get their money. Just showing that they lost money is not going to be enough.

3. We need to show he did not use their money for the business(es) they invested in. How do we do this?

Mr. Tariq's reponse on April 16th was:

Our case before the DA must entail a systematized record many factors including but not limited to the following:

1. Person(s) who have paid for services from Trent and have failed to receive them should first begin by sending a letter via certified mail with return receipt requested to Trent, that details the specifics of their claim to the money that Trent owes them and a demand that he return that money for failure to provide the services and/or products they purchased. This demand should request that their monies be paid in full within thirty days. Knowing Trent these letters will be disregarded and go unanswered. The letters are however evidence against him if he fails to answer them and a violation of the Consumer Protection Laws of Texas.

2. Those persons who have received services that did not fulfill the claims purported by Trent should also send a letter of complaint to Trent demanding a resolution. If it has been more than a year since they received these faulty services they should send a letter requesting an explanation as to why the services do not perform according to Trent's claims.

3. Now the necessity to prove that Trent had no intentions of delivering the work that people paid for can be done by proving that the work was shoddy, deficient of normal professional standards, and never worked. Another point to add is that the method in which Trent used to build these credit profiles was illegal and misleading.

I understood the first 2 responses because they were truly steps to correct a situation. 

The third one was strange to me becuase Mr. Tariq was saying that to prove Trent took people's money with no intention to do the work was to show the work he did was sub-standard! I responded last night by saying:

... To me that makes no sense at all! You are saying to prove he had no intention of doing the work we need to show that he did the work but that it was deficient. If he did some work ... that is work. Quality of work is not the litmus test for no work at all. Think about it. I told you he successfully got thousands of dollars of credit for my friends so it's obvious he was doing something. How can we prove that he did nothing. If he comes up with one record that proves otherwise we are going to be made to look like fools. How do we prove his intent to do nothing when he was doing something?...

The next thing Mr. Tariq did (that I knew was illegal) showed me completely he was willing to do anything to hurt Trent, his wife, and his partner. In an email on April 16 I lied again about someone I knew that worked for Trent:

... On a more interesting note, Trent's assistant and I are meeting on Saturday and she told me she can get anything out of his office without him knowing. She said there are new business credit account folders marked 2010 that have thousands of dollars of credit approved including a $250,000 amex account that the cards just arrived for.

She also can get usernames and passwords to his back up email file which he never accesses. It can be logged into from the web. She said there are many emails from pissed off people, creditors, etc. The problem is that she cannot print these because the print server would show the file extensions, but the usernames and passwords can be used to access his NAS drive from outside to get all that is there and he would not have a clue.

She also can get logins to the personal (not business) bank acocunts which also can be accessed without his knowing. She said there are like 9 personal accounts with alot of money going back and forth. Strange.

What do you want me to tell her because I am meeting with her on Saturday early afternoon and she can do this over the weekend while he is gone? I can send you everything from and to a private email address by yousendit.com or something like that. ...


... First I should address your allay your fears about my sharing information with others in the campaign. I am 100% loyal to the privacy of others who share things with me and would not disclose anything without your prior approval.

... Everything that you listed as accessible to your friend has tremendous evidentiary value and would certainly help in unwinding the intricate scheme that Trent has put together. If your friend is willing to join the campaign and provide information to you that can be used Trent down then I say good for her to take such a bold stance. I am interested to know though what is reason behind her wanting to give you all this information? Whatever the case if you come across something I would be glad to take a look at it.

At this moment I knew Mr. Tariq was dangerous! He actually endorsed someone stealing information and computer access to bank accounts as someting that would help his organization to shut Trent down!!! Once I read this I immediately told my husband so he wrote Tariq another email.  In that email, my husband (pretending to be me) said:

... 1. You said in your email yesterday --- There are also other investors at the top of the food chain that have and continue to reap rewards from every new dollar that is poured into the company. We don't need to show that people lost money, we need to show that Trent is conducting a ponzi scheme and paying old investors with the money of new investors. But you also said that we should get affidavits and cooperation from investors which I assume means you have not yet gotten that support.  ....

His response was again another attack on me:

 ... Please be advised that it is the firm belief that you are in fact misrepresenting yourself as Emily Mason and are in fact Trent Thompson Daniel ... Effective immediately you are not to send any emails to brothertariq@gmail.com. Your emails are considered unsolicited and an abuse report will be filed and your disregard for this warning will be considered harassment.

Lastly, I am alarmed that Mr. Tariq has been able to get information from Trent's attorney. He said this to support his claims (email from Tariq on April 16). 

 ... Trent told this to an attorney that once worked for Imagine International....

As I said in my earlier posts, Trent is paying us what he owes as he is paying others. I am satisfied.

It is not for me to expose the reasons Trent gave us for his financial struggles but I do know that his sincerity was refreshing to us and we appreciated his candor.  We did get a small payment today.  It was not alot, but it was a good faith effort on Trent's part and we appreciate that.

I am making this post to warn people because these emails prove that Tariq Abdul-Hadi is obssessed with hurting Trent, Sarah and his partner or anyone affiliated with Imagine International.

I also believe, based on these emails, that he is capable and willing to attempt a physcial attack on them as well. He admitted that he was interested in getting stolen information from their home! What is clearly evident is that he is wanting to recruit people to do harm and damage ... 

I have not previously notified Trent or anyone else about this but due to concern for his safety, his wife and partner I am doing so now. I am also filing a police report about Mr. Abdul-Hadi's endorsement of stealing information from Trent's home.

Arrangements made.

AUTHOR: EM - (United States of America)

I am also reporting that Mr. Daniel and his partner have worked out arrangements with my husband and I. We only wanted to be communicated with until we got our refund. We never filed a rip off report but we did see this one and volunteered to submit this comment.

I also emailed Mr. Tariq and we made the decision not to join his organization because we felt like he is trying to hurt people instead of help people get their money back. There is enough of that TEA PARTY mentality going on and we want no parts of that. I was also concerned that Mr. Tariq spoke as if he had the support of the Harris County DA's office in his mission to SHUT TRENT DOWN.

Mr. Daniel's partner did explain why there was a drop off in communication and we accepted the reasons. We did not like the lack of communication, but after talking to them we do understand. They did apologize and are making things right.

As was the case with Becky (above) we were referred to Mr. Daniel by several people he had successfully done work for so we know he was not taking people's money.

Trent's partner also showed us proof of their ability to repay us. We are satisfied with the resolution and will submit again once we have been paid in full.

Lines of Communication are re-opened


I would like to report that Trent T Daniel has once again opened our line of communication, when he called me to speak to me about this situation.

While I do not have my money in hand at this time, he has stated that he will make this situation right, and that he will have my money paid back to me, which is all I ever wanted.

So we are working on resolving this issue.  Once I have my money in hand, I will file an update on that as well, but am happy that the lines of communication have been reopened and he is working on refunding my money.

AUTHOR: Tariq - (USA)

Blinky, people who pray on the confidence of others and commit the crimes of Trent that you mentioned, rely on people believing that they WILL NOT GET THEIR MONEY BACK, and therefore never pursuing their legal rights. Number 1, to prosecute Trent would not be difficult and you would not bear LITTLE IF ANY out of pocket expense as the Prosecutor of Harris County Texas will fight your claim for you. There are consumer protection laws that help victims of these types of crimes. Number 2, you have all of the evidence yourself with the records of your having sent Trent thousands of dollars. Number 3, the two hurdles that Trent will not be able to overcome are bank/wire fraud, and mail fraud. These are serious crimes and carry stiff penalties while not being difficult to prove. The fact that Trent didn't provide the services that he said that he would makes him responsible to repay the money or suffer possible criminal and civil penalties. Purporting to be an expert in credit restoration of any kind is more than likely a regulated occupation and I hope that you pursue your legal rights. I am interested in gathering a grassroots group to shut Trent down for good, and if it lands him in jail then oh well. If you are interested please email brothertariq@gmail.com to confirm.

Trent T Daniel

AUTHOR: Blinky - (United States of America)

I have registered a report on Ripoff that is exactly like your story.  I know a handful of people that he did this 'con job'  just in my small circle of friends.  I wish I had done a background check before i also gave $8000.00 to Trent T Daniel. I have a copy now, and its all there, committing the same crimes.  It will catch up to him, and we will not get our money back.  I am assuming you see the responses to a few individuals who have spoke up, and Trent tries to turn the whole situation around as if it is their fault.   Trent keeps his path fresh, so as to continue the scam.

AUTHOR: BECKY SCHULTZ - (United States of America)

There is another report on here that I did not see prior to filling out this report.

It is # 567460, which is the EXACT scenerio that I am in, with the same amount of money. 

Mr. Daniel claims that business credit is his area of expertise, and that is what his new MLM company is about, and yet, when it comes to myself, another person I know, and the person in #567460, by their claims as well,  he was NOT able to produce any results that he personally guaranteed at least to me-but that wasnt the worst part..not only did he NOT produce what he was paid for, but he KEPT every dime we ever paid him. Between us 3 that is $21,000 alone!  Anyone would be a FOOL not to think there are not others out there a well.  Just how many, only he knows.  In my case, the shelf companies I was told I would be receiving were:  Kofinas Consulting and Hanety Investments.  I never received one piece of paper on either, docs from the state,  that I asked him for repeadily, and then was told because it was taking so long "I would be very happy if I could just keep being patient, because now instead of 2 shelf companies, he would provide 3".  Just a stalling tactic obviously. I called Dunn and Bratt as well to verify these names, and the owners of the companies only to find that I was lied to again. 

I agree with #567460 that I would assume that Mr Daniel bought self companies with our money, built these files up and kept them for himself with no intentions of providing us what he was paid for.  So not only did he get our money, he got the shelf companies, and credit that came along with them. 

May GOD have mercy on your soul.
