posted by swaldman

Jews who feared that Bernard Madoff was making their tribe seem uniquely culpable for the financial immorality, can relax: Bloomberg today reports that Allen Stanford used his Baptist ties to promote his scam.

I think it is a little sad to group this as a religous thing… Jim Davis is scum, he claimed to be a good Christian but didn’t follow the rules at all. He was sleeping with half of the women he employed, most that he met in church- these women knew his wife Lori Davis, of course she was having an affair with the pastor of that church. That’s right same church that they funded- it’s like Peyton Place with a cross on top!! Laura was the same… The moral fiber of these people is not lacking it is missing completely.

It is sad that people rely on other church goers for financial advice. It nevers ends well. You wouldn’t go to a Charles Schwab broker for spiritual counseling, so why go to church for financial advice?

Allen Stanford’s school of serial swindlers use name dropping, stamped passports, falsified tax returns, and donations to St. Jude’s to gain trust and power over private companies with aspirations to go public. According to SEC files, Sydney Trip Camper botched a deal with the Ahkoy family’s Datec and was fired from Elandia Inc. by Allen Stanford. With help from his new partner in crime, Sydney Camper went on to his next victim in Los Angeles and ruined this private company by forming a shell holding company, opening secret bank accounts, and using all THEIR assets to get OTHER people to loan HIM money = PONZI SCHEME!!!! In true Stanford form, Sydney Camper moved on to InZon and Ed Berkhof is orchestrating a new scam with FMC Telecom. Frank Cassidy, owner of FMC Telecom, is either his new fellow fraudster or Mr. Cassidy has fallen victim to Ed Berkhof’s new Ponzi scheme. The Ahkoy family is now suing Elandia in the Pacific and Florida courts. The FBI and SEC are investigating Allen Stanford, James M. Davis and their den of thieves including Sidney D. Trip Camper III and Ed Berkhof.

Good Bye
Today is my last day at Beliefnet (which I co-founded in 1999). The swirling emotions: sadness, relief, love, humility, pride, anxiety. But mostly deep, deep gratitude. How many people get to come up with an idea and have rich people invest money to make it a reality? How many people get to create
