Do NOT pay this man any up-front fees for funding.George Leonard Leamey
Coming soon - a full expose` on this conman, and his scam company "International Ventures Pty Ltd"
We have received a number of complaints about this "fees up-front' scam and will be providing details in coming days.
For starters, claims on their website
are false, we checked on all of the referred supposed clients, and none
actually existed according to ASIC's registers.
Secondly, the website has no "About us" section where one would expect
a list of who's who in the company and their respective credentials.
We also have the ASIC registration of the company, which is registered
in NSW, with an address in Cavill Ave Surfers Paradise QLD, and a
contact address in Studfield Vic. Yet one of our victims has been
advised that they operate out of a Collins St address in Melbourne.
Leamey's business card even says they have an office in Sydney. WTF -Go
Figure! ASIC Extract
The extract shows the company was first registered in February 2019,
yet one of their testimonials says they (thier supposed client) were
fully funded in 2017, two years before the company existed!
Other testimonials state that the testifier would be happy to discuss
International Ventures with anyone wishing to enquire - but no link,
email address or phone number is supplied. This is a glamorous looking
website, but it's all bullshit. link
The most outrageous claim made by the "nobody" George Leamey is that he
sources his funds from Hungarian billionaire George Soros. Yeah, right,
as if. What crap. We have copies of text messages where Leamey was
supposedly arranging for our informant to travel to Singapore to meet
the Soros team. Well, what do know - it never happened of course, but
the bastard Leamey kept all the fees.
UPDATE Jan 4, 2020:
Leamey's UK company has now been deregistered by Companies House, London. link
One of our complainants has received an offer from Leamey to repay just
half of the 25,000 Euros ($40,000 AUS Dollars) he paid up-front for a
service never provided by Leamy. If Leamey does not repay the full amount,
will publish all of the damning correspondence we have on hand,
including meetings supposedly arranged by Leamey but which never
eventuated. All BS designed to retain the client's money. So now it
appears that this scumbag Leamey is stalling for time to enable him to
con someone else so he can repay this client in full. If it smells like
a Ponzi Scheme, then that's what it is
The details also implicate a Robert Archer (below) alledgedly of
Appleby Real Estate as Leamey's conduit to Soros. So Mr Archer, what do
you say about this?
UPDATE JAN 13, 2020:
We now know through an informant that Mr Archer above was in fact
conned into working for Leamey around early July 2019. He resigned in
December last having discovered bit by bit that Leamey and
International Ventures was a sham designed to rake off up-front fees
from would be borrowers. The insider confirmed that Leamy does not know
Boros or any other legitimate funder, and that not one loan application
ever went anywhere. Everything about Leamy and his company and the
website is all a total fiction. And we are also informed that Leamy IS
indeed the same Leamey mentioned below.
So, apart from conning thousands of dollars from would be borrowers,
Leamy has wrecked the professional reputations of two bright young men
who gave up their careers in real estate to join what they thought to
be a legitimate international lending practice.
FURTHER UPDATE JAN 21, 2020:
The informant mentioned above is one Tony Marks, who also claimed was
an agent with Appelby Real Estate. Since speaking with him on Jan 13,
we have not heard a word back. The phone call was terminated rather
abruptly by Marks who said he would call back "in a minute". He did
not, We sent him the webpage for comment and heard nothing.
Our victim however did email Marks to give him a "heads up" that
documents and emails to and from him would be part of the body of
evidence to be presented to authorities. The reaction from Marks is
astonishing. His emails back to our victim show what a little conniving
con artist he is himself. He even called our victim an asshole! Both
our victim and ourselves are of the opinion that right up to the time
things became public, they were both happy to work for Leamey and were
being paid commissions on money scammed for Leamey.
We also believe the George Leonard Leamey
mentioned in the links below is the same man - too much to expect that
there are actually two George Leonard Leameys' NOW COMFIRMED AS TRUE!
