Ive taken a few classes with Santiago Garcia Rey and he regularly pitched investment and charity opportunities to classmates. Several classmates and i gave Santiago money expecting to get 28%-35% returns a year on our investment. Santiago claimed Mexico is an emerging market therefor the returns we could get there were so much higher than anywhere in the United States and there was unbelievable amounts of upside. Santiago said the money he collected from all his Harvard classmates were going to buying real estate and heavily undervalued Mexican stocks.  

A week after I gave him over a hundred thousand dollars (several classmates gave Santiago tens of thousands of dollars per person) he calls me up and asked if i want to support a charity him and his family started to help kids who are starving in Africa which i gave him a few thousand dollars to support becuase he showed me pictures of himself in Africa with kids. [continued below]....

..... Santiago collected our money in 2016 by 2018 nobody had gotten any returns on their money which he promised to give out every year. If anyone called or emailed Santiago asking for their money he'd simply block their phone number or email address. When i confronted him in person Santiago Garcia Rey said because of disfunction with the mexican government his investments had all failed and our money was gone. I googled the name of Santiago's company which was called "Revolution Companies" and found nothing on  his business or what they invested in. I heard from several of Santiago Garcia Rey's friends that he spent huge amounts of money on gifts and vacations for his girlfriend back in Mexico named Barbara, and spent huge amounts of money on drugs and escorts in Cambridge while going to Harvard as well.

Anyone that reads this needs to stay away from Santiago Garcia Rey and not give him any money. Several Harvard students and I are in the process of hiring a lawyer to go after him and try to recoup our money. Several Mexican students at Harvard have also told me his father who bought Santiago Garcia Rey's way into Harvard is a con artist too who is only not in prison because he's politically connected to the corrupt mexican government.
