Brian Schatz, acting as CFO, for Tamashii Inc. solicited a $100,000 investment on the basis of purchasing and leveraging Letters of Credit through Tamashii accounts. He stated that the company was using multiplier Lines of Credit and was in need of raising the funds to finish projects. They would guarantee a percentage of company stock to back my funds. He brought on the phone, the President, Sheldon R Johnson and all assured me we were fine. They promised a total of 2 month turnaround with 3 steps endng at a 1M payment to me.  Step 1 was slow, but they showed an account with $400 K and issued me a Promissary note for $600,000.  They said they would stop and pay out there...although this was after almost twice the time. Mr. Johnson has accused Mr. Schatz of abusing his position, but Mr. Johnson also admits that he and Mr. Schatz split my funds and he received 2/3rds of my money. None of my funds went into any investment vehicle.  I did not give Mr Johnson a loan. He now purports that he and Tamashii do not have to pay me the  agreed investment return at all and he will see us in court. He is using usury laws to get out of paying the investment amount he signed the promissary note for.  It has been a year and I have not seen my principal or for that matter, one dime from Tamashii Inc, Tamashii Financial Inc., Tamashii Computers, Brian Schatz or Sheldon R Johnson.

At the least, this should be Wire Fraud, as They are in Georgia and I am in NY.

They are Wolves in Sheep's clothing. Do Not Invest with this group!
