EDITOR’S COMMENT(1/15/2021):  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THESE TYPES OF ISSUES:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with personal commentary and/or allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking HERE NOW or learn a little more by visiting our “Donate to our Efforts” page.  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

I meet (((REDACTED))) in 2016 through his friend (((REDACTED))) a meat’s salesman  of (((REDACTED))) British Columbia Canada. (((REDACTED)))  introduce himself as a businessman Financial Director of (((REDACTED))) who specializes in investments and he proposed that I invest my husband and I's retirement fund with a value of 185K with the promise that he only makes safe investments that he guarantees will bring in profits.

(((REDACTED))) he proposed that we buy  stock that he claimed was poised to ignite a frenzy of profits. He commented to me that he had insider information from various persons in Toronto working in big trading firms. The company name is (((REDACTED))) and he said that he was so confident in the company belong to a very rich Arab investor.

We decided to follow his advice as it seemed a golden opportunity to make a great profit off our hard earned savings and have an even better retirement.

 We paid him, as he asked, in cashier checks. He claimed this was for taxes purposes and because he said  the Attorney of the company  (((REDACTED))) suggests so. Also he said that the profits were going to be invested in the (((REDACTED))) because they are "known bank secrecy havens."

 In January 2017 we decided to cash in on our investment but unfortunately the value of our investment was only  $ 1.500. When we started complaining and asking questions (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))) stopped answering our calls. We wanted to hire a lawyer but the monies invested was all we had. 

We investigated and learned that when  Shortly after, we discovered that (((REDACTED))) was a scammer.

(((REDACTED))) sold us the stocks (((REDACTED))) they were unregistered but in his possession, and we also learned that (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))) were not new in this kind of frauds:

We still don't know how the SEC and other authorities let people like (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))), with their  fraudulent background, still practice taking advantage of innocent eldery investors.

Stay away from all companies where (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))) are involved.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

(((REDACTED))) stop saying youre going to help

AUTHOR: Stamps Champs - (Canada)

POSTED: Tuesday, November 28, 2017

I noticed in every one of the reports against him (((REDACTED))) keeps making admissions of guilt yet trying to clear his name by saying he did nothing out of the norm and is just trying to set things right, I reccomend you stop scamming everybody and if youre going to make things right actually act on them and show the readers how you are fixing things instead of just talking about it. You arent even helping yourself let alone all the people you cruelly defrauded for hundreds of thousands if not millions.

Working to solve the problem

AUTHOR: (((REDACTED))) - (Canada)

POSTED: Friday, November 03, 2017

Yes,  at the time I was, and still am, an (((REDACTED))).  But I was acting under the instructions of the Board headed by (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))). They were using false accounts to hide the investors’ money and trade the (((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))).

I have not taken any money from the other companies even though I am a part of them. 

However we are working to solve the problem.
