Steven Christian Du Pont (its actually Dupont), is not who he claims to be. He claims to be an investment broker, a Managing Director and many other things. The truth is that this man is a con artist and scammer and his past history proves it beyond a reasonable doubt.

In 1992 according to the Rhode Island Barrington Police Department, he was charged with assault.

In 1994, the Barrington Police Department had charged Steven Dupont which involves $25,000 that a Boston man invested with Dupont in the form of a note that was not repaid. A civil case involving the charge is still active, according to attorneys.A spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney's office said prosecutors agreed to drop the criminal charge when Dupont put $27,000 in an escrow account. The Suffolk district attorney's office had issued a written statement on Aug. 25 calling Dupont a "suspected associate of fraudulent investment broker." It said Dupont had "avoided authorities" for a year and a half.

Again in 1994 in Barrington, R.I., he pleaded not guilty to one count of Larceny in which Suffolk County Officials said Dupont allegedly worked out of his offices at 50 Congress Street in which officials report that Dupont had stolen approximately $20,000 from investors.

In 2006, Mr. Dupont was convicted of Credit Card Theft, Credit Card Fraud and Theft in which Mr. Dupont was romantically involved with the male victim. Mr, Dupont had used his American Express and First Premiere Credit Cards for unauthorized purchases.

Then sometime in 2008 in Maui Hawaii, Mr. Dupont had an unauthorized use of a Credit Card totaling in the amount of $7000.00 from a former ex-girlfriend to Travel  to New York, New Jersey and Boston; and had conned $25,000.00 out of her. That money was to be used for a Montessori School in New York in which Mr. Dupont had told her that that's how much it would cost her to file for the permits in New York City. She never saw any paperwork and never saw her school open. She also had given Mr. Dupont and extra $7000.00 to help her with a legal case with Maui Attorney David Sereno. According to Mr. Sereno, he only charged $1500.00...for her case. Mr. Dupont had lied and kept the remaining $5500.00 for himself. That same year, the former ex girlfriend had filed a TRO on him. He later was arrested for violating the TRO. In retaliation, Mr. Dupont had helped his ex-girlfriends ex-husband win a custody battle over her son, and resulted in a 1 million dollar payoff to her ex-husband in which Mr. Dupont received a handsome sum; according to documents filed, Mr. Dupont helped her ex-husband with a business venture located in Kihei, Maui called Kiano Cafe and in turn, bilked a $150,000.00 bill  for "rendered services" over to his ex-girlfriend and demanded payment by use of legal threats.  During that same year, Mr. Dupont had conned $5000.00 from another woman who I will name B. (for identity purposes). 

Now in 2010 in a phone conversation with a woman from Boston who I will name Ms.Y. (again for identity protection), Mr. Dupont had flown to Boston to collect $100,00.00 in which according to documents filed, Ms. Y. received 10% of Mr. Dupont's Street Search Development's 20% partnership interest in Opunui Water Company LLC in which a  Mr. Jeff Podesta, Mr. Dupont and a Mr. Nelson Waikiki Jr. all had set up. According to State of Hawaii Records, Opunui Water Company LLC is owned by Nelson Waikiki Jr. and Mr. Dupont is its Managing Director and a Mr. Doug Carillo Jr. of Maui, who is listed as an "investment accounts manager"  (Source: 11/19/2009 Facebook page of Mr. Carillo Jr.).

Documents filed shows that Mr. Waikiki Jr. had hired the services of a Consultant from Maui. The owner, had terminated the contract for non-payment and also for Mr. Waikiki Jr.'s and Mr. Dupont didn't seem legitimate. In a phone conversation with the owner, he stated that Mr. Waikiki Jr. and Mr. Dupont both are involved in illegal activity in which most likely would be described as a "Ponzi Scheme". He also stated that he does not know if Mr. Carillo Jr. is involved or not. I have also spoke to other people who Mr. Waikiki Jr. also have hired the services of; a Solar Company Rep. to install Solar Power to a water meter and also a metal fabricator to fabricate a special container to hold the water meter. All of these people that Mr. Waikiki Jr. had hired, had provided services for Mr. Waikiki Jr., and according to my conversation with them, till this very day, none have gotten paid. They were scammed out of their hard work.

Upon research, Mr. Dupont, Mr. Waikiki Jr. and Mr. Carillo Jr. have conned, to my count so far 18 people with a gross total of over $232,000.00, most in Maui alone and I can certainly guarantee you, there are more innocent victims out there. Many of the victims I have spoke to ALL have confirmed that before there was an "investment" into Opunui Water Company LLC, they all met at Maui Attorney David Sereno's Office with Mr. Waikiki Jr. and that they gave the investment money to Mr. Waikiki Jr. because it seemed legitimate due to the Attorney's involvement. ( Im not quite sure if Attorney David Sereno is involved or not but it seems quite clear that he used alot by Mr. Dupont and Mr. Waikiki Jr. for their shady deals. I can assure you that Mr. Sereno is being closely watched)

In a filed document, there is an Extortion plot against the Makila Land Company owned by Development mogul Peter Martin. In a hand written letter to the Makila Land Company, Nelson Waikiki Jr. had listed a list of Demands from them:

1. Payments to be made to Mr. Waikiki Jr.:

15 Million, after taxes

$2.4 Million for a Home

55 Thousand for a BMW Vehicle

$100 Thousand for non-profit Opunui Trust Fund

$50 Thousand for education

$50 Thousand for Waikiki Judo Academy

Grand Total: $17,655,000.00

The document also stated that Makila would contract Opunui Land & Water Company LLC to handle all water concerns and negotiate monetary back pay settlement for past years of usage. And that Makila must repair the access road and that the Water usage by Peter Martin and its affiliates would be metered and invoiced for payment. According to Mr. Waikiki Jr.'s former associate within the Opunui Water Company, a Mr. Keeamoku Kapu would be the one involved in the payment process since they are family and that Mr. Kapu lives within that general area.

There is a criminal investigation that started in 2009 on Steven Christian Dupont, Nelson N. Waikiki Jr. and Doug Yoshito Carillo Jr. by the Maui Police Department and the State of Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs. Records indicate that Steven Dupont (Steven Christian Dupont or Du Pont) resides at 71 Holomakani Drive in Kula, Maui with his current girlfriend Kay Bergstrom, who probably has also unknowingly been financially conned by Mr. Dupont. Nelson Nahino Waikiki Jr. has a listed address at 16 Ohia Leo Place. Wailuku, Hi 96793  However,this address is partly owned by Wailuku Water Co. Avery Chumbley. This is the business listed address for Opunui Water Co. LLC and Opunui Land and Water Co. LLC. Mr. Waikiki Jr. resides back and forth with 2 women, A Maui Court Reporter, Heather Petrovic ( who is listed as the "Agent" for Opunui Water Company LLC.) and Caren Pantezzi of Hawaii Families As Allies. According to Court Documents, both women have Restraining Orders on each other, however Mr. Waikiki Jr. bounces back and forth between both of them.  I guess you can say this is good news (perhaps), records indicate that one victim had been paid back in full of $3500.00. by Mr. Dupont and Mr. Carillo Jr.. This has been confirmed. (However, I am slightly confused that the money was repaid by Mr. Dupont and Mr. Carillo Jr. and not by Mr. Waikiki Jr.).

Over all, it seems that this continues to go on in Maui and innocent victims are getting swindled by these gentlemen. Remember, if things sound to good to be true, they probably are...

If you are a Victim of these people please call the Police.

On another note, I have read the Rip-off Reports posted by Mr. Dupont and apparently it seems that Mr. Dupont has it out for this"alias Kealii". Rest assured Mr. Dupont, I can honestly admit that I am not he...although I do admire his and this MadScorpian's courage and tenacity to seek justice.

Alias, Ke'alii Blaisdell, Alias, 'Madcrab,' etc., 'Aneurysm,' of 'Ethics,' & 'Intelligence,' II

AUTHOR: warveterans - (USA)

Steven Christian Du Pont, Mau'i

'Cyber Terrorism.'

Recently, an alias, decided to commit fraud, and harassment via the Internet. This alias, 'Ke'alii Blaisdell,' has created false police reports, has created false court judgements, and has creatively re-written history, - 'cyber terrorism.'

The tragedy is that Steven Christian Du Pont, is not guilty of any crimes, - anywhere.

The tragedy is that Steven Du Pont, lent this alias, 'Ke'alii,' two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500.), to assist this 'Ke'alii,' with his child support payments only to discover that this 'Ke'alii,' had used the loan for expensive holiday's in Waile'a, and Ka'anapali, Mau'i.

The tragedy is that this alias, 'Ke'alii,' has created false pretenses, essentially fraud, to obfuscate the truth on the Internet whenever and where ever possible in reference to Steven Christian Du Pont. Why? That is the question...

Why, this 'Ke'alii,' is obsessed with Steven Christian Du Pont, is a question for qualified therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists. The reason for 'Ke'alii's,' compulsive desire to harm others is well beyond the scope of this article.

Finally, Steven Christian Du Pont, has had an extraordinary career as an advisor, insurance agent, and realty agent.

Mr. Waikiki

AUTHOR: Heather - (USA)

Please get your facts straight.  Heather Pitvorec wants nothing to do with Mr. Waikiki, Ms. Pantezzi, Steven Du Pont or Opunui Water.  I, Heather, have a restraining order against Mr. Waikiki and Ms. Pantezzi, not the other way around.

Mr. Waikiki does not reside with me. I am not an agent for Opunui Water.  Check the DCCA website.

 I too hope for justice for all the victims of these people.

Going Legit? My Conversation with X and the Bizzaro World of Steven C. Dupont, owner of Du Pont Investments LLC.

AUTHOR: Keali''i Blaisdell - (United States of America)

Oh how the Gods are shaking in their boots! Here is a update to my recent post. Apparently I have gotten wind of Mr. Dupont trying to go legit...what? Thats right folks. Mr. Steven Du Pont (thats how he spells his name, although legally it's spelled Dupont), has created a Limited Liability Company with the name, "Du Pont Investments LLC", and it is registered with the State of Hawaii. Now the kicker here is that Mr. Du Pont filed for an LLC on October 14, 2010 by Attorney Jack Naiditch who is also a per diem District Family Court Judge ( Mr. Naiditch is a very respected attorney and has great morals and values. I wonder why he would be willing to do anything with Mr. Dupont).

Well, moving on...the Du Pont Investments LLC's term is set to expire on December 31, 3010....WHAT??? Thats right folks, Mr. Dupont figures he will live to the year 3010 (thats one hundred years from December 31st of this case you needed to know). Now instead of Mr. Dupont setting the term to AT WILL, he decides to set if or 100 years. And get this...he is the only one listed as a Member-Managed LLC, with an listed address of 570 Kulaiwi Drive, Wailuku HI. I cross referenced that address and the information listed, believe it or not, is Mr. Dupont's Grandmother's house.

Now the funniest thing happened to me today. I received an email from... lets just call this person, X...from Rumson, NJ. X, knew Mr. Dupont for many years, in fact X disclosed information about Mr. Dupont because X blames Mr. Dupont for X's financial troubles (X claims that Mr. Dupont uses his name quite alot to people, especially about some bank accounts over at the Rumson-Fairhaven Bank & Trust). According to X, Mr. Dupont pretends to be the person he's not. He exaggerates about his education, his background and always like to charm the women. X stated to me that Mr. Dupont loves to charm the women he meets in believing that he is very wealthy, and that he has investment developments all over the World in which he tells these women (and men) that he is the main investment broker for a company located in Maui called Betsill Brothers Construction Inc. (A quick check online shows that the company does exist and the CEO for that company is a Mr. Dwayne Betsill, however I did call the company and according to the woman I spoke to, Mr. Dupont is not and never has been an employee of that company). According to X, Mr. Dupont claims that he must travel to these destinations in order to see the investment of Betsill Brothers is moving smoothly, being that he is their main investment broker. X has also told me that Mr. Dupont does business thru a company he owns in the Dominican Republic called "Cabarete Investments", and that the reason why the company is located in the Dominican Republic, is so he does not have to pay U.S. Taxes....and can you believe it?...yup, I called the Dominican Republic Government and spoke to a Mr. Antonio Alberto from the office of Sec.of State for Industry and Commerce Jose Ramon Fadul and according to their Government records (and not to my surprise) Cabarete Investments does not exist. However, one name did pop up in our conversation, and no it was not Mr. Dupont's name...but a Betsill. Oh, not the CEO of Betsill Brothers but his brother, a Mr. Doyle Betsill. Apparently, Mr. Alberto disclosed that Mr. Doyle Betsill is a part-time resident there. Coincidence? 

It is strange that Mr. Dupont would divulge to people that he is the main investment broker for Betsill Brothers Construction under a company he owns (Cabarete Investments), when in fact, according to Betsill Brothers, he never was an employee, and yet there is a Betsill living part-time in Cabarete, Dominican Republic (Cabarete is a city in the Domincan Republic). So, is it just a coincidence there more to it than meets the eye?

In a dinner meeting with "X" at a lavish Yacht Club in Rhode Island, Mr. Dupont had stated that he was also a summa c*m laude graduate of Harvard University School of Business...and wouldn't you know it, yes, I called the Harvard University Admissions Office and they have no record of a Steven Christian Dupont or a Steven C. Dupont or a Steven Dupont ever been admitted at that school. In fact, on LinkedIn, Mr. Dupont states that he went to Gordon College...crap! YES! I CALLED!!! I spoke to the Gordon College Admissions office (just outside of the Boston Area) and they have no record of Mr. Dupont EVER attending their school.

Now...isnt that strange? Mr. Dupont is living in a backwards world. Kind of like Bizarro World, you know, the opposite of reality. If Mr. Dupont ever finds out who "X" really is...hell would freeze over...after all, everything that Mr. Dupont has done to the countless of innocent victims who lost hundreds of thousands of dollars (mostly women), hell has a special place reserved for people like him.

And since I have noticed in some posts by Mr. Dupont, he seems to love to use the Latin word "Veritas" quite often, so as a tribute to Mr. Dupont, I shall respond with Latin of my own...

"Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similies in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad neccem c*m fiat justitia, ruat caelum"

Read it, Learn it and Live it...unfortunately Mr. Dupont lives in Bizzaro World.
