Freddy Rodriguez, President of the Board, JRC Group of Companies, Investments, C.A. - Our office made the mistake of sending him a refinery offer in 2011. He proceeded to paste it onto several Latin America websites as being authorized by our office when it was not authorized in any manner. When we discovered it and told him to take it down along with any other posts he took the liberty of claiming our name on, he then proceeded to claim we owed him commissions. How he concluded this considering we have never closed a deal with him or had a payorder with him is beyond us. Further into the communication, he mentioned the commissions regarded a client that non-performed and are listed on this page. We are turning the matter over to Interpol. For the record - this person does not represent our office as agent, mandate, employee, 1099 contractor, representative or any other type of arrangement. If he contacts you and claims this, please contact us.
Wendy Hickman and Shawn Starkey of Black River Resources/Copperstone Oil & Gas Properties - Be careful of these two. They name dropped a big player in the market, representing themselves as his direct conduit to offload busted refinery deals coming direct to them as well as some "select" offers from a trade desk. In our opinion, it is highly unlikely these two have anything real to offer. Our experience was the release of 4 ICPO's and a commercial payorder for a major buyer to them and it all went into a black hole and we never got one drop of fuel. Pissed Consumer has a fraud alert from a former employee - http://black-river-resources.pissedconsumer.com/fraud-20110914261893.html.
Faisal Aloufi - this genius had the brass nads to send over to us an ICPO from ExxonMobil!
Ernest Babbini and Abdul Rahman- represented themselves as direct to a well known company and produced fraudulent SPA and payorder on a D2 transaction. Apparently Ernest had some fun in the mortgage loan industry before perpetrating fraud in commodities: http://www.fbi.gov/phoenix/press-releases/2011/px030911.htm Check out the section on US V Rogers, Et Al and look and see whose name pops up again.
Andres Garcia, Barcelona Parts - presented fraudulent information on a buyer with a refinery contract.
Rasheed Ariwoola - Represented himself as mandate for seller and produced fraudulent SPA for sale.
Pedrag Nicolic - Was part of a company that attempted to by fuel from NWWSL. Sent an ICPO, got a CI, and then sent a false POF to the seller. Later, this guy hacked and edited the docs issued by this seller to play false seller. He issued a fraudulent ICPO and CI to a RWA buyer. When the buyer sent the signed CI back - he vaporized. Imagine that.
The following buyers are on our BLACKLIST -
Caribbean Downeast Boats, Ltd and its President Richard Rambhrose - Issued an ICPO and signed a contract for D2, but could not perform. This buyer could have had partial POP delivered to them had they provided their license and logistical information as they represented they could in their ICPO. Made multiple excuses for non-performance from their end buyer was unwilling to file the financial instruments needed (even though the contract was in their name) to making false claims about our supplier. In the end, the did not have the money they claimed and was just another wanna be trying to flip a deal.
Customs Connections Logistics,LTD and their managers John Williams and John Kenny Mack - This company issued a ICPO and signed a contract for D2 and then could never perform. The refinery gave more than 30 days to get their act together and they could not.
Gruppo Bordiga, spa - Issued ICPO's for JP54 and D2. Were given commercial invoices per the procedure and they could never produce an MT199 as required.
CYMEX Group - Entered into a JP54 and D2 contract with a refinery market we have and never provided the required MT760 that was part of the procedures and that they had agreed to up front prior to the order. The worst part was rather than admit they did not have the $$, they went on a excuse streak of lies. If you deal with them, get your money up front.
TSE Community Development Corporation, Texas- This organization claims to buy property that will qualify for government funding. They have no money, no assets, and no way of closing a deal.
The following funding sources are on our BLACKLIST -
Faith Capital Funding Corporation and its President T Lynn Redmond - This group claims to have billions in mineral interests that they can use to monetize your loan. They have nothing and will be a huge waste of time. Here is their site - http://www.faithcapitalfunding.com/
