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

These guys talk a good game but cannot provide ANY references and when pushed they claim oh until you pay our fees then we will provide you all the information needed.

Use fake addresses and companies for themselves (all their work or business addresses were checked out and none were verifiable, false previous work/job history, PwC said they had never heard of John Grice (even with the Biz card he sent).
Anyone charging those kinds of fees have to be a scam.

If you were of some intelligence and actually read through the Dallas Criminal complaint you would have seen that the charge was Quashed (which means Dropped for those of you) and there was charges filed against the person who originally filed the claim for Filing A False claim against me.
What a dump A-s you are.

#4 REBUTTAL Individual responds



Now I know that you are in fact connected to these guys as I do believe we have spoken.
Like I said their proof is in the pudding and they never could provide anything. Why be such a chicken sh-it and not identify yourself, have something to hide?

1. No never made and false declarations.

2. No to you false yours/Forgery charge.

3. No on your harassment BS.

And unless you have connections in side the court system and the FBI you will not find any of the charges and suits etc on M Clulow.

As for the Pwc verifications, Grice misrepresented himself to me (i Have all the emails and Bio proof) And if he cannot be verified by the corporate offices of Pwc and his portion in a foreign office was and is overstated then more BS on his part plain and simple.
You can continue to try and make the wrongs right but AGAIN, if they have to hide any proof of past or present projects and ANY verifiable references, operate out of houses and RVs, change up front fees then  they are frauds.
I sure you are just trying to protect or not wanting to believe you have lost the Upfront fees and that is the real truth as to why you are on here and yes the real truth will set you free. So the only thing your right is the being honest are best. try it and Identify yourself and your real position/involvement here??

birds of a feather flock together ...

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

and a falcon a day scares them away.  

Mr. Thurston, 

Counter-questions are often used to avoid answering questions that make one feel uncomfortable to answer. . .  

Pertaining to you, the following questions have been asked without specific answers:
  1. Did you make False Declarations on a loan application?
  2. Did You commit Forgery?
  3. Have you ever Harassed anyone?

I have not found any discriminatory information on Mr. Malcom Clulow in the Dallas area and no evidence that he is running from anyone. Your claim about Mr. Grice's employment is false. His past employment at PriceWaterhouseCoopers (Singapore) has been verified. Nowadays, it is common for businesses to use private mailing services.  However, I already have the answer to question #3. In case you weren't aware the Dallas County Criminal Background Search Service ( has some unfavorable information that you might want to see.  Just type in your full name with your middle initial W.

Mr. Thurston, it is no longer necessary to try to manipulate this thread with insults and scandalous remarks.  People who insult other people are either insecure, immature, or have something to hide. If there is one thing that could make you feel better is telling the truth.

Direct and honest answers are best.  My job here is done.

#6 REBUTTAL Individual responds



The so called claims they say I did or did not do? No In fact my application was complete and when I asked for references before paying any monies that when they said it was incomplete or had omissions.

As for the chages filed against me you or anyone else may check in the Dallas area and see that nothing has ever been filed against me. But the fact is Malcolm Clulow who was a partner in the company at the time DOES in fact have those very same charges filed against him plus two lawsuits for fraud and others. Which above if read Clulow stated the other way around.

He I now believe was working with these guys to scam money out of the company as come to find out Clulow and Grice are from the same town in England. Also you can check in England which Malcom has now fled because he is wanted there as well on multiple charges including fraud and theft of corporate monies.

Again just another case of criminal minds of a feather flock together.

explain yourself

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

Mr. Sherman T****,

It was brought up that you were less than truthful on a loan application.  Were you?  The rebuttal states that you have been reported to Law Enforcement for Harassment and Forgery and I can't think of a better place for you to come clean other than on here.   

If you go back and re-read my original post you will see that I was trying to help you.  But, your reaction has been very telling and I can spot individuals like you from a great distance.  What goes around comes around.  So for what it's worth, if you did not do any of those things then say so. Otherwise, I hope someone somewhere will some day soon bring you to justice.

As for me, I have no part in any of it. I am just an observer.  

Good Bye.

And another busy body running his mouth


If you are not connected to them as you state then you must be just another busy body running his mouth for no apparent reason other than to do so. If your not associated with the deal and are only making your assumptions based on the above then your a bigger idiot than these guys thought I was.

As for legitimate point I have made them and will continue to do so.

Like I said have said and continue to state, Proof is in the pudding and anyone that changes upfront fees and operates out of a RV park or their house claiming to be able to do hundreds of millions of dollars worth of deals legitimately that have or refuse to give verifiable bank and project references must be a scam plain and simple.

As the FBI stated "if its too good to be true, they are changing up front fees and refuse to give Verifiable references than its a scam". Call them yourself and ask the Financial Fraud Division give them the exact scenario and they will tell you to RUN.

And the only reason for starting this was to warn & inform anyone trying to do business with these and if anyone's life is "contaminated" probably for the better.

Sign your name and stop being a chicken SH-t

independent assessment continued

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

Mr. Thurston,

In your own words, 'another whom must be connected to these scammers no doubt'.  I can assure you that I am not a part of this.  Though, it is now clear how you can make a false statement as a fact.  

You are continuing to make attacks that are most likely unfounded because there isn't any real dirt. The dirt is probably on you, Mr. Thurston because You are avoiding some legitimate points and it would be very wise of you to stop turning tables and explain yourself.  

The fact is that you were never scammed.  From what I read above, your application never even got past the consultants, which was probably a smart move on them.  It is blatantly obvious that you are spreading rumors.  Mr. Thurston, you are coming across as someone who enjoys negativity. Your past time is probably contaminating other people's lives.  

The last time I checked this is the good ol' US of A and I have rights.  Just like you I can say whatever the heck I want.  Don't dish it out if you can't take it.

Repeating Myself


As for whomever cannot or has not the b*lls to identify themselves, another whom must be connected with these scammers no doubt.
I have nothing to prove but to only inform other of these guys and their scams. As for your statement of my slandering or otherwise I can and have all the proof necessary to back my words therefore have nothing to fear of them you or anyone.
If they want to go to court or try to come after me I would love nothing else but to put them on record in court with their fraudulent actions, my truths have nothing to hide plain and simple.
So if your not a part of their organization then stay out of it and if you are then have the b*lls to say so.

independent assessment

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

Mr. Thurston,

I am just someone giving an independent and brutally honest opinion.  I read this thread and I hear what you are saying, but it's hard not to notice that you keep repeating yourself.  However, you are subject to some strong accusations as are Harassment and Forgery and for making False Declarations on a loan application (see Rebuttals 1,2 and 3).  Rather than spending your time trying to make others look bad you might want to consider explaining yourself instead, since your integrity seems to be in question.  Otherwise, you begin to come across as less credible.

When you were involved in my transaction (and I have an email from you stating so) you Stated "It was registered in Colorado and has lapsed and would be reinstated in California".Anyway with a business address at a self Storage facility and a RV stall on top of that is there any more that really needs to be said??
If you going to scam people you guys should at least cover your tracks and get real addresses instead of houses and storage facilities. I mean who does multi million dollar deals out of an RV or their house these days?

Pure slander, no substance.

AUTHOR: Todd - ()

Sherman, I don't appreciate you singling me out.  I am an independent consultant and not a part of Oneasia.  They are simply one of several capital sources I have used to introduce funding requests. Check your facts before you slander me, since my entity has been registered in US since 2009.  I received your request from Eric, who received it from Frank, and as consultants we agreed to work together to introduce your request for funding.  But it is curious that no derogatory statements were made about Frank or Eric.  Frank was the one who suggested that all consultants walk away from your deal because you tried to add a consultant unknown to any of us.  Next time do a real hard check of the facts before you foolishly jump to conclusions and slander people.

Gil C ????

AUTHOR: ST - (United States of America)

Gil C is no doubt another of the daisy chain of guy associated with OneAsia Pacific and it is all pretty simple as stated many times to them before, during and after all this BS.
Proof is simple:
Any real verifiable lender or broker can and will provide verifiable poof by way of Bank and project references. Plain and simple.

ANYONE that asks for all these fees upfront before giving any kind of verifiable proof is a fee scam, PERIOD. Such as these guys.

ANYONE not registered with the SEC or any of the other lending regulator bodies, none of them have ever cleared monies through NY for the purpose of lending in the U.S. so they are not doubt a fraud.

ANYONE that uses houses and, storage facilities, fictitious names for their business address for this type of business is not doubt a fraud and fee scammer.

So guys you can write all the excuses and try to explain away the truth but the fact is until you provide the proof than the facts stand, PERIOD.

John Grice with Price Waterhouse Singapore is real!

AUTHOR: Gil C - (United States of America)

Dear Mr. Thurston, like the Libyan Embassy disaster and the Iraq war, your Intel on Mr. Grice is also very flawed! Since all PriceWaterhouse offices are run independently, you failed to check with the right office. You checked with New York when you should have checked with Singapore. We have received conclusive information from the Singapore office of PriceWaterhouse, human resources division of the tenure and position of Mr. John Grice at the PriceWaterhouse Coopers Singapore office yesterday February 12, 2013. That information is on file at our office. I strongly recommend that in the future, you hard check and then red team your information before you inadvertently slander someone.This is purely my opinion but if I were Mr. Grice I think I would be seeking legal remedy against you.

Mr. Thurston, like the Libyan embassy disaster, and the Iraq war, your Intel on Mr. Grice is flawed. The fact is, Mr. John Grice did work for PriceWaterhouse Coopers Singapore office during the period of time that he stated in his CV. That information was confirmed by an employee from the Singapore offices human resources Department yesterday, February 12, 2013 and is on file at our office. I strongly recommend that before you start slandering someone, you hard check your facts and then  red team them before publishing it. This is purely my opinion mind you, but if I were Mr. Grice, I would be seeking legal remedy against you.

I have several emails from john grice and Todd higley that Grice was represented as the Former CEO of Asian Pwc operations. I called Pwc headquarters in NY and they said they NEVER had anyone by that name and or title working for Pwc. I guess its true anyone can make up phony documents.

Now you say you were a Managing Director, again today I called and got the same response. I do not think corporate Pwc would lie or hold out on this information??

Check with the FBI for the formal complaint that have been filed against both party's as well. Again Proof is in the pudding guys. You can try and hide your fee scam business but if you cannot provide verifiable bank and project references than you just that a fraud.

Thurston Rebuttal #7

AUTHOR: John - (United States of America)


It is Oneasia's opinion that Thurston posted this notice knowing it to be false. Thurston's representations on this website are clearly incorrect and untrue and the content is deemed by Oneasia to be a malicious distortion of the facts. The Loan Application and supporting information made by Thurston contained incorrect and untrue statements and is confirmed to be untrue by Mr Malcolm Clulow who severed ties with Thurston and pursues him for various offenses disclosed in this rebuttal whilst other offenese are not detailed here. The Consultants withdrew from the transaction because of Thurston's attempt to add an unrelated party and their suspicions of foul play. Also it appeared to Oneasia that Thurston was seeking to use false information to obtain a loan of $225 Million USD by deception. These facts are reported here in rebuttal to the Thurston report and are directly verifiable with independent persons and organizations.

Oneasia Pacific Limited Operations

Oneasia Pacific Limited and its sister companies have registered and are operating offices in various international locations which are easily verifiable and it is untrue to allege they do not exist. Oneasia is a Private Lender registered as a Financial Institution in New Zealand. Oneasia has a transparent Application Process, has a non-disclosure provision in all client agreements in order to protect both the applicant (including commercially sensitive material) and Lender. Oneasia considers all Applications but rejects those that do not pass first review, issues a Memorandum of Understanding(MOU) for companies passing first review. The execution of the MOU by the borrower is only when the borrower is fully satisfied with Oneasia's process and ability to fund, where the lender conducts thorough Due Diligence on all selected applicants and their projects and where the Borrower contributes to the cost of such Due Diligence, where applicants who successfully complete the Due Diligence Process receive a Loan Agreement and where the borrower is encouraged to obtain Legal review prior to execution of any MOU or Loan Agreement. No borrower is ever pressured or obligated to accept the terms of the MOU or Loan Agreement.

There is an independent dispute mechanism available to all clients of New Zealand Finance Companies and to date NO complaints have been received by Financial Services Complaints Limited against Oneasia Pacific Limited.

T**** Rebuttal #3

AUTHOR: John - (United States of America)

T****'s Application to Oneasia Rejected Part 2

The Consultants involved in introducing Oneasia as a Lender to T**** unanimously withdrew from this transaction in advance of Oneasia stating that "The principal (Sherman) has been less than truthful concerning his multiple submissions to other firms". In addition the Consultants questioned T****'s authority to represent the transaction, and further explained that T**** was trying to impose an additional Consultant to a previous agreed and fully executed Consulting Agreement whom T**** now claimed was instrumental in the introduction of Oneasia.

None of the Consultants were aware of or had ever heard of the additional Consultant, and suspected foul play.This withdrawal by the Consultants was "key" to confirming Oneasia's suspicions about T**** and his company since Oneasia had never had Consultants withdraw from their clients before. This can be verified by contacting the Loan Originating Consultant Mr LT Higley at

Oneasia was very concerned that the content of the Application submitted by T**** contained false information, such as the incorrect ownership as stated previously, and that forgery and deception were likely involved in an apparent attempt to obtain $225 Million USD in funding. The forgoing were among the considerations which led Oneasia to reject T****'s Application.

Not withstanding the above T**** has made accusations, after being rejected, against Oneasia and Mr Grice which warrant further response in future Rebuttals

Thurston Rebuttal #2

AUTHOR: John - (United States of America)

                                Thurston's Application to Oneasia Rejected Part 1

Thurston submitted a Loan application for two projects stated to be controlled by Acer Snowmec USA Inc of 1124 Fielder Road #105 Arlington Texas 76012 to One asia Pacific on 22 August 2012. No payments were ever received from Thurston or Acer Snowmec USA Inc. and the Loan Application was rejected. This Loan Application was supported by an Acer Snowmec USA Inc. brochure and financials for the first project to be considered and requested a loan of $225 Million USD. In the brochure, as well as the Application signed by Thurston, it incorrectly declared that Acer Snowmec USA Inc. was owned 49% by Thurston and 51% by Mr Malcolm Clulow, its President. Mr Clulow has since denied he was ever President or a Director of Acer Snowmec USA Inc. and Mr Clulow claims he is pursuing Thurston for slander, reported Thurston to the Police for Harassment and Forgery and has dissociated himself from Thurston. Mr Clulow can be contacted on email at to verify. Oneasia holds emails from Mr Clulow that state, "Your integrity is beyond reproach". Clearly Mr Clulow, his experience in the business, his prior successful projects and his patented indoor snowmaking system would be essential for any successful Loan Application for the project Thurston had applied for. It has become very interesting that Thurston never involved Mr Clulow in any discussions with the Consultants or with Oneasia when discussing the proposed project with Thurston or during Thurston's Application process. Mr Clulow has many references on the internet which show his experience in this business, his patented technology and numerous similar projects completed in the UK, Dubai etc.
