Michael Louis Brittingham, is an international internet
predator, posing as a wealthy, successful businessman and
pretending to be a humanitarian. We have evidence that he is a
His "American Business Club" is not a real business and it is not registered  anywhere.

He used this business name to perpetrate fraud on the bank that holds my mortgage and on letters to my creditors. He did this in a false scam to pretend he was providing me with employment, in order to gain entry and shelter in my home.
Michael Louis Brittingham has scammed women in the US and Europe for money and goods, travel expenses, food, living
accommodations, hotel and other expenses. He has taken
these things for services and employment under false

He offered false information to lure women into working for him
without compensation, and he has used offers of recording
contracts and jobs overseas as artists to women in an
"Artist in Residency" program to get money from them, work for him, and other things. He preys on single women and single mothers with children. He seeks out the vulnerable and those who need help, ripping off those who can least afford to lose what he takes from them.
Brittingham administers the following NING networks;

OTHER WEB SITES ADMINISTERED BY MICHAEL BRITTINGHAM We are working with NING in an investigation of his activities. He is a member of 29 NING communities....a large preying field.

He runs a new NING site,

He is actively seeking investors for this scam now. He wrote this entire "proposal" at MY house, on MY computer, eating MY food, while he was scamming me under the pretense of employment that was FALSE! I have proof..evidence I have submitted to law enforcement. If he contacts you, please contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

I am personally filing a report with the Internet Crime Complaint Center, at this internet address:   (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

For more information, please see the story of how he ripped me off and scammed me with false employment in the Artists - In - Residence Program, one of his schemes to defraud women.

Ripped off for Euros by Michael Brittingham, from Artist in Germany

AUTHOR: Sarah Dees - (USA)

More information related to my case exposing FRAUD Michael Louis Brittingham:

While he was staying in my home, he told me this woman was working for him, and sending him small cash payments of his own money that was coming into his business from draws on deals he was working on. I took him to the Western Union office twice, where he picked up cash from this woman, sent in HIS name to MY address. Telling me these small cash transfers were for his immediate cash flow needs, like his cigarettes, he explained that she would soon be sending him the big cash payment he was waiting for, and with that payment he would be paying me funds that he had promised me.

We now know that the money I saw him pick up was HER money, sent to him for HER bank account, which he was supposed to be opening for HER in the United States. She is another SCAM VICTIM connected to my case, and here is her statement.

An artist from Germany was approached by Michael Louis Brittingham through the internet. Following his pattern of preying on women using scamming and deceit, he ripped her off for money and messed up her life with his lies.

"Here I am, willing to tell my story, to help catch Michael Louis Brittingham, so that others will not fall into his traps again.

He asked me to come over to the United States to have my studio in Beverly Hills beside the Michael Jackson Museum at Pickfair Mansion.

I started to sell my stuff and clean out my apartment.

Then he wanted me to open a bank account in the United States. I sent money for him to open it for me.

He told me it wasnt enough.

He said that I should send more money.

So I sent more and more money.

None of the things he said would happen did happen!!!!!

Please see attached the western union papers. (She sent me copies of her receipts.)

He spent all the money for personal things and also for the flight to Germany from Florida, as I know now.

In another note from her:

Brittingham has planned to go to New York on the 17th of September as far as I know.

I think its necessary to catch this fraud ASAP!!!
I used this page to send a hint to catch that fraud!

His lies are unbelievable!

Here is my story for you to know how he lied to me.

I joined the Prince and Princess Network on NING and (woman's name) made a comment on my wall. She wrote that she needed to have proof of whether or not I am a Nobel.

I received an Email from Michael Brittingham, telling me that I should not care about it.

He invited me to join his NING group, A Closed Circle. This was a nice reaction of a person I didn't know.

Then, when Michael Jackson died, Brittingham sent out this mail: Michael Jackson is dead and Michael Brittingham is crying.

I read it and I cried also, because I grew up with Michael Jacksons music. It has touched me, that a man was crying about the death of Michael Jackson.

So, I wanted to have a cup of coffee with this man and went to zurich to visit him.

I understood him well and I thought, This is a real nice man.

Then he went to Miami and wanted to help you, as he said.

He wanted me to come over to live near Pickfair and to have a huge Atelier there. ( a printmaking studio )

This was a nice challenge for me, because I am by myself and was a bit lost here in Germany.

So, I sent some money over to Brittingham so he could open a bank account for me. I started to sell my furniture and quit my apartment here.

Then I received an Email, where Brittingham was telling me that it is unbearable for him to stay in your house because you are awful. I didn't understand that, because he told me he wanted to help you and also wanted me to come there to take care of your daughter, when you are going to die of your cancer.

I was in sorrow regarding you and the situation there and then he told me that it is all not true.

I felt confused, but what would you think about it,  if things are changing that often and totally unexpected?

I have sent him 480 Euros + 350 Euros air fee.

Then Brittingham came to Frankfurt and visited me. It was a nightmare!

I kicked him out of my apartment in a minute, which was a great thing I did for myself. It was unbearable for me to have a parasite here.

I found out that he has spent all my money and he will never give it back.

So, finally, I don't know where he is now or what he is doing.

I noticed all the warnings and blogs you and your friends had posted on the internet.

I decided to be with you all to fight against this person who betrays anybody.

Well, this is my story...I heard that he told people that I am working for him.

I never worked for him and I did not even know about him telling such things.

I will go to the police and hope that they will catch him and lock him in, so that he will not have any possibility to betray people anymore.

I also talked with a man in Zurich. Even men fell into his traps!!!

Lets go forward and see how we could help to stop this scandalous person!
