This whole thing has to be hard on him. Not only did he trust the wrong guy, but
he got his brother and friends to trust him as well. Hang in there,
I can't stand the fact that Detmer met this crook through the Church. It's
embarrassing and sad.
My sister was also "fleeced" by a ward member who managed retirement
accounts for her and several others. He took all their money and disappeared. Be
careful out there.
We are too trusting, especially with other members of the Church. If someone
uses their Church membership to promote a business opportunity, turn and run
I make it a rule, no business at church, no business with people from church.
No one can give consistent results with high yields, especially if they are from
church. He should have known better.
Sad to hear about Ty.I hope Barton spends life in prison. Don't mix
church and business. Lesson learned.
My parents were duped by a good friend and church member. In the end the IRS
came after them due to an illegal trust the guy had been selling and it cost
them $40k and their home. They also had $30k invested with the crook they never
saw again. Go with legit companies and avoid the small guy working out of his
house. If it sounds to good to be true or guarantees results run the other way.
Investment is risk and those that say they can take away that risk are liars
I got took by my ex wife......didn't meet her at church...you can get taken by
