Knowledge Source review in Lincoln, California: Scammers!

1.0
Details
I received an email that was a receipt for a payment of $48.50 USD. I had never heard of them before. I replied to that email asking what the charge was for, and never heard back from them. I then noticed the charge on my credit card. I called my cc company and they found I had been charged 3 times. It looked like they were just going to keep charging me that amount until I noticed. My cc company canceled all 3 from my balance and blocked them. I have never done business with these people, so not sure how they got my cc info and charged me. I'm not even in Australia, where they are supposedly based. FYI - the payment on my cc said "The Trustee for the Knowledge Events Trust"

Knowledge Source, Jon Giaan

Knowedge Source is a Real estate spuiker who has had trouble with the law on a number of occassions for providing false and misleading information to a guilble and greedy public now partnered with another scammer extraordinaire Ms Dymphna Boholt to spin brilliant tales of wealth through real estate, and more recently through foreign property investing (a dangerous strategy at best). And who is to stop them leading thousands of Australiand down the garden path while fleecing them off thousands and thousands of dollars for the "advice"? no one. Best that can be done is to provide public records relating to those two snake oil merchants read the links below and decide wether the sweet promise of wealth and the well layed out words are of any value other than to ensure your trust enough to transfer wealth from your bank account to theirs on Jon Giaan or his real name jon Giannopoulos also jon giaan see articles below, this guy trades as Knowledge Source, use to trade under a variety of names including giann and Giann pty ltd and Break Free events amongst others... oh he now goes by Jon Giaan a play on the spelling of his name to fool people googling him from finding out about his history ; he is referred to as Giannopoulos in this article by the Sydney Morning Herald; http://blogs.smh.com.au/radar/archives/2004/11/trust_me_im_a_w.html he is referred to as Jon Giannopoulos in the ASIC Ruling against him as a scammer; http://www.asic.gov.au/asic/asic.nsf/byheadline/04-339+ASIC+restrains+wealth+creation+spruikers?openDocument he is referred to as Jon Giann in the age News paper article below; http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/mr-hotshot-shoots-himself-in-the-foot-20081204-6rhu.html and more; http://www.jenman.com.au/news_item.php?id=400 http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2009/05/01/today-tonight-admits-stories-false/ As for Dymphna well she was selling Real estate wealth advise since 2003. She sold it on the bases of having accumilated 60 properties in under 18 months (she's still claiming it, but now she probably does have it from all the poor souls she's ripped off), when questioned by the ACCC she had to sign an afidavit that contrary to her statement of holding 60 real estate properties she infact held NO property at all and very little assets of any kind. See what Justice Steve Rares says about Dymphna's none existent assets in his ruling follow the link below; http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/journals/FedJSchol/2009/7.html These people are seasoned professional rip off artists people. Jon is now selling business opportunity to suckers and getting commission on every sale. Dont give this scammer your money

Went to one of Dymphna's free seminars and the next day I got a follow up call asking for feedback from knowledge source, that in itself I was happy with, but during the call I casually mentioned I was young and motivated, which I thought nothing of at first. But I got another call from the same guy saying he had a "business opportunity" then proceeded to email me a link to a website and login details. So I go to the site, login, and watch a promotional video for a blatant pyramid scheme... So I told the guy I wasn't interested in his pyramid scheme then wrote a complaint to knowledge source describing his actions and how unprofessional that was. Got a response saying they'll forward my message to their manager. Ten days go by and nothing. So I email again asking for an update and all they said was "my reply: [copy and pasted the first response]" and I haven't received a reply since...

They are scammers and they promote pyramid scams which is illegal. Jon Giaan or Giann is a major scam artist.
