3 months away from 70 Billy!! That must suck.Add to the fact you may just be behind bars with Bubba in the new year and it adds up to a pretty miserable future. I hope the "real estate developing" was worth it. Any ways I am going to head out and celebrate the above facts and Billy's 69.75 anniversary since his mother spit out that piece of trash.

This link is over a year old. Why bother to post it twice? The BBoys have a trial date I believe in April, 2018. Hopefully they will be held accountable for their actions. I don't believe that the investors will see a return of their investments but a pound of flesh may be just as good ten years later. Jail term will be the final consequence.

Wishing all the good people out there a Very Merry Christmas! Hoping 2017 will be the best year ever for you, especially those who were financially devastated. Here's to hoping that the economy comes back and a brighter future shines through, and that we get back to work and continue to be good ,honest, hard working citezens who make Alberta as great as it is. There is so much to look forward to in 2017! I feel blessed to have my family, my happiness,  and my health. I may even get a chance to save away a few dollars this year to take a nice holiday in the sun.

There is so much to look forward to; family, friends, laughter...........freedom.

What else do we really need?

Hey post #153, the name of that investor relations manager that you were looking for, the guy who was trying to suck people in as the house of cards was falling, and who promised interest payments to the very people who paid his pay check and put groceries on his table..but the payments never came. His name is Michael Kowalchuk. Really slick guy. 

Post#154 by Guest Jul. 10, 2016, 01:27PM

Here is what us locals feel about these 2 crooks. See the readers comments below the article. I hope these guys get full punishment by the Alberta Courts for what they did to our beautiful community and to the investors!!!

Haha  "Trash the office" . I would love for him to say that to me. Tough guy.    Listen , what these 2 jokers should do is publically apologize to the people they ripped off, try to pay back the millions of their hard earned dollars back to them, pray for forgiveness, plead guilty, take what's coming to them, and then shut up. They had their 10 years of fun and luxury from other peoples' money, now it is time for the unfortunate (for them) consequences. If the Brost and Sorenson case is any indication, these guys should get 12 years or more, they will probably have to serve 6 , with the other 6 house arrest (Canadian soft justice). Pretty much a life sentence for poor ol William,  and Colin will be 61. Ha. As for the other post wondering about these moral bankrupts "throwing people under the bus". Salespeople maybe? I'm thinking an "investor relations manager" (ahem), who was trying to pull people in right until the end as the walls were crumbling down. Promised interest payments that never came ,etc , and then disappeared. His name escapes me now. Then of course there is Olympia trust, who I am sure are contractually protected from any wrongdoing. Maybe they had some "structurists" also. Who knows. Either way, it will be fun to watch it all unfold from afar. I'll grab the popcorn. :)

Post#152 by Guest Jul. 01, 2016, 01:59PM

When I first heard about Becker and Bradley being involved in a company named Bridgecreek ( I am a former partner of Bradley some 30 years ago). I went on thier web site and two things jumped out at me. First Becker being President and Chairman while Bradley was VP of Development. I thought Bradley you SOB when things come off the tracks I am sure you will plead that you were just an employee and Becker made all the decisions. Secondly the number of people employed as "Investor Relations" or some such title. I din't see any Construction Managers, Estimators, Project Superientents etc that you would normally see in a ligitamate development company.

When we booted him out (paid to get rid of him) he was most upset, going to trash the office, sue us etc. in hindsight he had planned his exit from day one, his name was not on any office lease, equipment rentals etc. he walked away scot free.

Post#151 by Guest Jun. 29, 2016, 11:00AM

To Poor and confused #147

Yes, you are wasting your time and money. As have many others in alberta seeking justice for commercial crime offences.

These two poster boys for fraud have avoided jail time for some unknown reason.

Oh - pardon me - the reason is known - this is Alberta and they don't prosecute fraud artists.

They allow the culprits all the benefits of a court that protects their rights, but not the victims.

Olympia Trust? They are complicit in nearly all of the Exempt Market failures. They created the mechanism that allowed for your RRSP money to be used on these schemes. Why this company has not beem fully investigated is also a mystery. To be clear, they did not cause the failures, but they allowed money to be used for things it was not intended for - like enriching the promoters of the exempt market projects and collecting several fees in the process. There was no oversight applied to the use of your money. Don't you think it is odd (or suspicious) that over 90% of all exempt market schemes whereby registered money (RRSP, etc.) was handled by Olympia Trust. And people paid for accounts that essentially had zero value.

 

Post#149 by Guest Jun. 23, 2016, 11:31AM

It was doomed to fail because the principles were more interested in living the high life in Palm Springs, Orlando and San Fransisco instead of using people's hard earned money for the purpose it was invested for, not to mention the paying off of people from other unrelated "projects".

Post#148 by Guest Jun. 23, 2016, 08:49AM

Bridgecreek was doomed for failure. Rivers Run was purchased without doing an environmental assessment. The clean up costs alone was over 3 million. 

Post#147 by Poor and Confused Jun. 22, 2016, 12:19PM

Or group of 97 investors&nbsp;invested money in mortgage units that were suposed to have a value of 14 million with RiverRun Properties. The units were supposed to pay 12 to 14% interest yearly. We were paid 9 months interest and then the CEO Bill Bradley claimed that there was no money left for the project. Olympia Trust in Calgary allowed him to use this money for any purpose he desired. It would appear&nbsp;Bill Bradley&nbsp;paid out a group of people on another project he had going with our money and left&nbsp;our group of investors holding the bag&nbsp;and very finacially insecure. Bill Bradley lied about having enviromental reports that he and the then mayor of Blairmore had paid to get for the project along with numerous other reports on the land and financing. Of coarse none of the information that he used our money for is being presented to us because 90% of it is lies and fabrications to keep us from forclosing on the mortgage units on the land that was supposed to be worth 14 million&nbsp;&nbsp;The story is all&nbsp;so sorted that everyone in our group has given up hope of either getting any money back or legally being able to sue Bill Bradley and his partner Gabor Zimmer " who is a lawyer" along with Olympia Trust for missappropriation of funds&nbsp; Now Olympia Trust is asking our group to pay them 100 thousand for their work because Bill Bradley and Gabor Zimmer refuse to pay them after they had used all our money to pay out&nbsp;another other group of people he had scammed on a project that was set up the same way and failed. It all sounds so Ponzi. Please help us as most of us used our RRSP's and life savings on a project that was supposed to be guaranteed against the first mortgage of land that was supposed to be worth an appraised value of 14 million but appears to only be worth only a few hundred thousand. I am bewildered at how 97 good people and a Trust company could be so easily duped. especially the trust company which I presumed was acting in our interest. Please tell me if we are just wasting money and time? <p>Regards</p> <p>The Obviosly Poor and Confused</p> <p>Riverrun investors group</p> <p>Harold R Ethier</p>

Ahh yes, death, the great equalizer. Let's leave the old withered carcass alone. He had his oporturtunity to do good in this world and he blew it. A career scammer and criminal, It's probably too late to right all his wrongs now. It is him who will suffer now in his final years. Although many with his brain makeup do not think they ever did anything wrong, the rest of society knows different. So what will he leave behind? A whole lot of people who he hurt, people who will always remember him in a negative way, and many people who will actually be happy when he is gone. So I actually feel sorry for the old guy. What a miserable existence. I am actually surprised that a successful man like his father produced such a waste of human flesh. Anyways,  His mansions in Palm Springs will soon turn into an 85" by 35" by 35" pine box. Like your article stated, you can't take it with you. The great equalizer.

Bradley...you are almost 70...a birthday coming up...read and learn..then rot in hell..soon

The last words of Steve Jobs -

I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.

In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.

However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.

At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.

In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.

Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.

It should be something more important:

For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.

No, stop pursuing wealth, it can only make a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God has made us one way, we can feel the love in the heart of each of us, and not illusions built by fame or money, like I made in my life, I cannot take them with me.

I can only take with me the memories that were strengthened by love.

This is the true wealth that will follow you; will accompany you, he will give strength and light to go ahead.

Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands.

What is the world's most expensive bed? The hospital bed.

You, if you have money, you can hire someone to drive your car, but you cannot hire someone to take your illness that is killing you.

Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find when you lose: life.

Whatever stage of life where we are right now, at the end we will have to face the day when the curtain falls.

Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

Treat everyone well and stay friendly with your neighbours.

To the person who was given the BBoys names for a potential project. Unless you enjoy donating your hard earned money to two useless pieces of ****, then I would run away, run away very quickly and consider yourselves lucky you read about these crooks before it was too late.

If you do talk to them do us a favour. Ask how they have provided for themselves for the last several years With no apparent income?? They declared personal bankrupcy a few years ago and have not "worked" since 2008. (If you consider work as pulling off a multi million dollar ponzI scheme). Just brutal human beings.

IMHO (during the short time that we had ownership) if new Innoka management would have immediately focused on appealing to the town to change the the zoning to residential, and the town would have let it happen, then the project could have had a better outcome for everyone.  The town would have been happier, the neighbors would have been happier and we would have been "somewhat" happier.  Just look at that place - does it look like a "commercial" property to you?  Doomed to demolition IMHO.

If they let current owners change the zoning now, that would really make me angry.  But, it wouldn't surprise me because everything about that place, so far, has made me angry..

Lots of business people (that made money in other areas of business) want to be Real Estate Developers (the next Donald Trump), Bradley and Becker come across as very knowlegable, about development knowing all the buzz words, permits required, etc.

Things last for about a year ( Becker / Bradley) drawing a monthly salary, coming up with various properties, designs, etc. When it comes to building  something they have no money, no assets to pledge and a credit record pages long of bankruptcies, foreclosures, judgments you name it. The "wanta be" developers realizes that he is on the hook for everything. By now he / she realizes that they are about the laziest two individuals you can meet with no practical buisness sense. Things go sideways and they move on.

I am deeply sorry for the losses, and the predatory tactics of the financial industry, assisted by all-too-compliant regulators.   For those who are victimized, I hope some will jump over to two valuable Facebook groups where social media is being engaged to try and bring social good.

One page was developed from within this Alberta Investors Protection and allows investors to connect and share their experiences, share any hope, or help.

Please check out this public group which began as "AlbertaFraud" and is now slightly expanded and called Investment System Fraud  https://www.facebook.com/groups/albertafraud/

The second Facebook site for those so inclined was began by the Small Investor Protection Association of Canada, which has been trying to help investors since 1998.  They are found here  https://www.facebook.com/groups/240100382792373/

These two groups allow a connection with a few hundred others and we hope to see and hear from you there.  Best regards, and keep the faith, there is strength in numbers, and the numbers of financial abuse victims is growing.

"There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile. 
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile. 
He had a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse 
And they all lived together in a little crooked house." 

I am writing anonymously because I am embarrassed by my victimization by these crooked men . . . embarrassed in the literal sense not of “shamed” but rather of “confused,” “disconcerted,” and “beset by difficulties.” 

We all know they stole our money; the crueler crime, however, was that they robbed us of our predisposition to trust our fellow man. The delaying tactics employed,  and lies told by them and their proxies, particularly as their "house of cards” began to fold upon itself, are too numerous to list here. 

Unlike the unsympathetic portrait painted by the “blame-the-victims” Internet chat-room choruses, mine was not a life of financial privilege, private schooling, white collar professionalism, or real estate ownership. I came from a middle class family, attended public schools, worked hard in a non glamorous job,  and have always been extraordinarily frugal.        

Now, at 58, I find myself at the crossroads of a financial “no man’s land.” My net worth, accumulated painstakingly over 30 years, is virtually gone. The highest wage-earning years for both my husband and me have passed. Macroeconomic prospects for remunerative employment are bleak. My financial future has been transformed from secure to ominous—my mood from optimistic to terrified. 

The words of one of Bernard L Madoff’s Ponzi-scheme victims apply equally to the impact of the crimes committed by these “Alberta Madoffs”: it feels like a nightmare that we can’t awake from. 

They shattered our dreams.

Post#107 by Guest Sep. 02, 2015, 08:51AM

The older I get, the more I believe in Karma. The definition of Karma is simple: actions taken now in your life decide what your future will be. In other words, if you hurt someone now the universe circles back around and kicks your ass in the future. It is easy to believe in Karma now because all the old scumbags, crooks, mean people, and just the plain nasty from the early days have failed or just became irrelevant and the good people just seem to keep on going and prosper. We forget that our lives are a long continuum and what we do now in life does determine who we will be and how we might live in the future. The rules of Karma, at least for me: Help people because you can, not because you have to. Change a life everyday for absolutely no personal benefit. Random acts of small kindnesses do matter to those around you. Integrity is more important than quick money. You make a dollar, give some of it back to those who need a little help. Ethics are not situational. Finally, think about whether you make a difference or not in the world? If you weren't there tomorrow, would the world miss you? If you are doing the right thing, there is a huge hole. If you aren't missed, then you now understand the word, "Karma."

I was in Canmore and drove by the Big Horn project that the BB Boys started and abandoned as per their style. A number of people were walking around the site (not workers) It looks to me that someone is taking a look at completing the projcet (good luck). Things are pretty weathered  now and I am sure the interior studding would all have to be all redone. 

My personal take is that it was a poor design to start with, very expensive design, stone work, very large units crammed together and the site has nothing going for it, three or four units on the front may have some kind of a view the rest look into the unit across from  them.

Post#101 by Guest Aug. 19, 2015, 07:08AM

They will eventually get to the BBoys. It takes time. The wheels of justice are very very slow, especially in cases of white collar crime. Keep on to the RCMP, the ASC, and CRA! That is most important!

Post#99 by Guest Aug. 17, 2015, 11:32AM

What I don't understand is why the CRA  has not jumped all over these two shysters even if the RCMP and the Alberta Securities are turning a blind eye. When I was running my business they were questioning ever expense wether it was business or personal (ex vehicle  expenses, what % was personal and what % was business, if it was over a certain percent did I have a travel log to prove it etc.?) I am sure they didn't send CRA cheques each month to cover the taxes on their personal  portion of expenses. trips, lunches, cars etc.

Post#98 by Guest Aug. 13, 2015, 08:08AM

Why these two are not in jail is a reflection of the weak regualtory and enforcement regime in Alberta. If this was the USA, they would be half way throguh their sentences, and their new homes would be a crowded all-male environment where looking over their shoulders would be a full time activity.

Alberta really has to step up its criminal process and prosecution for money takers like these two and so many others.

Post#97 by Guest Aug. 12, 2015, 01:32PM

I think the simple question we all want answered by the court is 
Where is the money?

Bridgecreek Canmore is an example. They raised 15 million to fund the condo project.
Instead they half finished the building and funnelled money from other "projects" to further fund...whatever..
10 % went to the sleazy sales guys up front.
A construction appraisal was done and they came up with 8 million. Where did the other 8-20 million go?
Gone into thin air.

Where is the 25 - 30 million that was raised for river run? Gone.


Where is the 15 million raised for Bridegate Crowsnest Lake?
Gone.

It is estimated that 75 to 100 million dollars was raised by Bridgecreek.

I could go through the list of all the Bridgecreek companies but they all have one thing
in common. Millions of dollars have simply vanished.

You do not need a Masters degree in economics to understand that all these
ventures were designed to simply gain control of as much cash as possible.
Throw up some smoke and mirrors and move the money into hidden accounts.

So is it too much to ask the court system to answer the simple question? 
Where is the money?

Is it too much to ask the RCMP to arrest the sociopaths?

Why are these two poster-boy shysters not behind bars?

Because the system in Alberta has no Investor protection built in to its system and the ASC does not communicate with the RCMP and vice-versa. Their existence is built on fees.

This is Ken.

I would like to address the individual who created posts number 71 through 75. First of all, I enjoyed a couple of your comments. They actually drew a chuckle out of me. "Throw the fish back", haha, that's pretty good, thanks for that. Unfortunately the rest just sounded like the ramblings of an idiot.

Personally, I couldn't care less what you, or anyone else wishes to write about me. Where you went wrong sir, is when you mention my children. That was a mistake. 

If you would like to meet me and discuss your comments, i am more than willing. I would like to hear where you came up with your ideas and, in particular, what you mean when you say I am having "reality check problems". 

So here I am! Why don't you tell me who you are? It's up to you. You can meet me, or you can hide behind your computer screen and prove to everyone here what a tiny mouse bitch you really are.

I'm not going anywhere. Looking forward to your response.

Quite a top notch human being mocking a person who took "meds" because he was scammed out of his money by B@B (unfortunately the fate is even worse for many who suffer the same experience), and talking about someone's deceased daughter in a terrible way like that. What kind of an animal would write something like that? This world never ceases to amaze and disappoint me.

Post#82 by Guest Jun. 24, 2015, 01:59PM

Sorry Rodger Val about the BB Boys taking you for a bundle but that's what they do for a living (if yiou want to call it that). I did send a packet of informtion to your office as soon as I heard you were involved with these scum bags. Like the other past partners (self included)you must not have thought these two charming guys couldn't be all that bad (wrong).

Post#75 by Guest Jun. 22, 2015, 10:13PM

heard Cote killed his own daughter 

all crazy

Post#74 by Guest Jun. 22, 2015, 10:11PM

Heard that neither his Father OR Mother want anything to do with him any more. 

East coast 'Throw the Fish Back' no good.

Proably 

heard he's ditched his kids cause he having reality check problems.  Again. 

Post#71 by Guest Jun. 22, 2015, 09:57PM

Just gotta love Ken Slaney 

its like talking to yourself without any Intel responding  

Is he still on all thpar Meds

Post#70 by Guest Jun. 20, 2015, 09:50PM

So this is probably how it is going to play out for you.

1. If you challenge the two crooks, they will become bilgerant with you, blame you, and threaten legal action against you. The crooked salesmen who made a hefty commission on your money will also blame you, even though they promised a rock solid, safe investment, backed by tangible assets.

2. The 2 crooks believe they own your money as soon as they trick you into signing the dotted line with their  lies and deceit. The will act bewildered that you think you should have your money back. In their minds it is already their money to spend on toys and homes in Palm Springs.

3. If you were involved with a group of investors, you will spend the next several years bouncing from great idea to great idea...lawyers will get involved...drain away the retainers, and disappear. People will ask for your trust as they are working on solutions, secret solutions that can't be spoken of..(yes you read that correctly)...they will delay for several months or years, stating they are working on the secret plan, and they will disappear in the dust..no explanation...nothing.

4. No one will seem to want to talk about the whole fiasco,,,right from the beginning...it will be an excercise of avoidance, half truths, non answers, delays and confusion...friends will avoid and walk away. People will act as if it was OK for 2 crooks to walk away with other people's hard earned money.

5. You will find that you will get resistance from other victims if you show an interest in going to the RCMP????? Right from the beginning. It seems for some reason that should be the last resort?????

6. Other supposed victims will go up against you if you demonstrate anger and frustration towards the 2 crooks who took all their money. As a matter of fact you may find that ,strangely enough, more people direct anger at you than towards the 2 crooks that took all their money.

7.  People walk away. No one will seem to care anymore...after several years of delays and disappearing acts.

8. The financial loss, the confusion, the disappointments and several years of second guessing yourself and kicking yourself will take a toll on your life and career.

 

I honestly hope this does not happen to you...

The house has nothing to do with us Roger Cote and wife Val.

The B&B boys took us for hundreds of thousands with nothing to show.

Post#68 by Guest Jun. 07, 2015, 10:01AM

I believe the house in question is owned by Rodger Cote (Lynn Wood Roofing) it was his girl friend (wife) that paired up with Bradley and Becker to form Mod 3 Inc. The companies registered office is 611 Bearspaw Rd. 

I wonder why the house is up for sale? have they bankrupt him already and he needs to sell his house, raising money for a grand Becker / Bradley scheme, who knows.

Post#67 by Guest Jun. 06, 2015, 07:26PM

Someone mentioned earlier that 611 Bearspaw Rd is owned by these 2 shysters. Looks like its on the market for 1.8 million. Maybe the victims of their crimes should look into this. Maybe contact a lawyer and go after the proceeds? Have to go after the assets acquired by the stolen money!!

Don't forget the Olympia Trust common denominator. The authorities will not do anything to these 2 scumbags. I'll see them on the street someday. Matter of time.

Post#65 by Guest May. 27, 2015, 12:57PM

On the 'Links' page of this site, there is positive progress being made in the court for the Platinum Equities victims. This goes back to 2002. Are the BBoy vicitms as organised as the Platinum group? The court documents read like a script for every scumbag scammer in Alberta. The same tactics of inflated land values, co-mingled funds, one bank account and the taking of obscene fees are common in every ponzi scheme.

Post#64 by Guest May. 22, 2015, 09:28AM

I drove by the site on center street (that I believe Lynn Wood roofing owned) , its been sitting there for about two years now with no action. There were two building on it ( Photo studio and a residence ) that I am sure was generating a few grand a month revenue. Wouldn' you have all your ducks in a row then take down the buildings. But wasting other people money seems to be thier thing.

Post#63 by Guest May. 16, 2015, 05:57PM

Hell doesn't want these scumbags. I am thinking they are down to applying for welfare.

Wow, that would be a funeral I would attend. With some pom poms!! I figure it would be like the Red Mile atmosphere in there after a Flames playoff win :) He's not a liked person, at all. A Complete failure in empathy and compassion. The devil will welcome him well.

Post#58 by Guest May. 07, 2015, 08:48AM

Ha, I guess Colin is keeping the young ones close by for when Bradley finally kicks the big money filled bucket. I heard Becker had a young "assistant" hanging out with him in Palm Springs, bouncing around the gay bars. But that was probably 5 years ago. People kept a close track on what he did. Probably still watching closely, feeding the crown prosecuter. (hopefully)

Post#54 by Guest Apr. 30, 2015, 10:43AM

Colin Becker has been seen frequenting the gay bars of Palm Springs, hanging out with young men 20 years younger, but his partner, Bill Bradley, is 20 years his senior. What a pair these 2 are. Bradley is what now, 70? What was his life acheivement? Deceiving and scamming people. Does he ever reflect on his life and feel a sense of pride? I hope not.
These two shells of human beings should be ashamed for the hurt they have caused people. Terrible, terrible stuff. Lets hope things get put right.

Post#51 by Guest Apr. 27, 2015, 08:57AM

Lots of business people (that made money in other areas of business) want to be Real Estate Developers (the next Donald Trump), Bradley and Becker come across as very knowlegable, about development knowing all the buzz words, permits required, etc.

Things last for about a year ( Becker / Bradley) drawing a monthly salary, coming up with various properties, designs, etc. When it comes to building  something they have no money, no assets to pledge and a credit record pages long of bankruptcies, foreclosures, judgments you name it. The "wanta be" developers realizes that he is on the hook for everything. By now he / she realizes that they are about the laziest two individuals you can meet with no practical buisness sense. Things go sideways and they move on.

 

Post#50 by Guest Apr. 26, 2015, 07:57PM

I'm going to send a letter to CREB anyways. Just to be sure.

Post#49 by Guest Apr. 25, 2015, 05:52PM

I would be very surprised if there are any realtors over the age of thirty five that haven't heard of the BBoys. I remain astounded that there are people still willing to get sucked in by them.

Post#48 by Guest Apr. 25, 2015, 02:05PM

I believe his realtors license was revoked several years ago due to the outcome of a lawsuit.

Post#47 by Guest Apr. 24, 2015, 12:39PM

I did a class with Colin Becker at CREB. He was very quiet and a bit of a loner and to himself.  Being in the real estate business, it really bothers me to hear about these scammers. They ruin the repuation of the honest hard working people of the industry. I will certainly let my colleagues in the business know about this guy!
Why not contact the Calgary Real Estate Board and let them know of his past discretions. They may take a look at his real estate liscense.

Post#46 by Guest Apr. 24, 2015, 09:32AM

Colin Becker has started a new company (to probably further confuse CRA and obscure the money trail). It is called Modhaus Inc. I think they are supposed to be doing reno's or infills or something.ha, ya right. Has he ever succeeded in anything? Not sure but I think they are doing something off 16th av. I'll check it out and get back. Maybe we can warn potential victims of this guy and his tactics. Thats what this website is all about.

Post#45 by Guest Apr. 24, 2015, 08:17AM

I am not sure you have the right company, thier latest partner (sucker) is the wife or girl friend of Roger Cote who owns Lynn Wood Roofing, he does live in Bearspaw but not sure of his address. the company in Mod3 Inc.

Post#44 by Guest Apr. 23, 2015, 09:18AM

Bill and Colin's last known address..

these guys are true scumbags.

Post#43 by Guest Apr. 13, 2015, 12:39PM

To those who have been monitoring them - Just curious, what type of vehicles were they driving to the Mod 3 office in -  Kia's or Bentley's?

Post#42 by Guest Apr. 10, 2015, 01:49PM

Unfortunately smart enough to scam 100 million dollars from Doctors, lawyers, movie makers, engineers, other real estate developers, business owners,  people from other countries, the ill, and of course elderly retirees (cherry on top).

How does 2 people blow 100 million dollars? Something is missing. It just doesn't add up?

Post#41 by Guest Apr. 09, 2015, 02:40PM

I don't think there is any investor money left today. The BBoys were infamous for spending to keep up the lavish lifestyle. Nor do I give them credit for being smart enough to move money offshore. I suspect they are sucking just enough money in from 'investors' in their pie in the sky wanna be projects. 

I wonder what was meant by 'they are being monitored'

Post#40 by Guest Apr. 08, 2015, 01:09PM

You sir, have shut me up.  Seriously, I commend you - You should be proud. I hope everyone does the same some day, ideally everyday!  

Post#39 by Guest Apr. 08, 2015, 10:45AM

I asked for my money back sir..and I was promptly dismissed and actually threatened of police action against me. Drop by? Drop by where? Do you have an address? Please please please provide it to us. Still hoping the authorities help..If not , should we get heavy handed? Hire another form of authority? What is your suggestion?

Post#38 by Guest Apr. 08, 2015, 07:38AM

My suggestion - at minimum, drop by some day and ask for your money back.  Have any of you done that?  I'll bet that not even one of you has.  They promised to give it back to you years ago.  Why not ask them for it - You don't want to make them feel uncomfortable?  No, we'd never want 'them' to feel uncomfortable..  You owe it to yourself to least ask.  Then you'll know.  Worst case scenario - They tell you "no, I think we're going to keep it"Laughing.

Or, you can just tell yourself that they'll just say "no" anyways, and go back to working on that time machine..  

Post#37 by Guest Apr. 07, 2015, 10:47AM

I'm pretty sure they are living off victims' money which was strategically hidden. Don't worry, they will pay, and are being monitored. Their last known business address in west Calgary sits pretty quiet these days. In Warmer climates perhaps?

Post#36 by Guest Apr. 04, 2015, 07:51PM

Who are the investors going to turn to for help 10 years after the fact. Their savings are gone, they are holding on day to day. Legal / Accounting fees are through the roof. The BBoys had their day in the sun thanks to investors. A lavish lifestyle, carnage left in their wake in Canmore, Crowsnest Pass, Vancouver, BC. , Palm Springs, CA. How are the BBoys putting food on their table? They remain undischarged bankrupts to my knowledge.

Post#34 by Guest Apr. 04, 2015, 07:12PM

Why on earth do the investors continue to compalin when they efforts should be use dto seek prosecution.

These guys are the poster boys of what is wrong with the "system"

Post#28 by Guest Apr. 01, 2015, 10:57AM

Actually the house was "only" 2.057 million as shown in the link below. I guess the extra $600,000 was used to pay the said capital gains tax on the transaction. (Thank you victims, says Becker).

Looks the the "bankrupt" lives a pretty good lifestyle. 2 MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE. Swimming pool. AT LEAST 200 GRAND IN VEHICLES (Porsche and Rolls Royce). Grand piano.

I wish I was bankrupt like that!!

CRA rewards people who report 'offshore' tax cheats.   Don't know of any incentive to report this type of tax evasion (other than you may sleep better at night knowing that you did something) 

Post#25 by Guest Apr. 01, 2015, 07:52AM

I am amazed that the Canadian Revenue Agency hasn't locked these two crooks up. The transaction shown here would generate a huge Capital Gains of which taxes must be paid. Thier cars, trips and extravagant life style are all Taxable Benifits again subject to taxes.

The California house was in Colins personel name not in some company name that might shelter it from taxes. I can't see them submitting thousand of dollars in taxes to cover these benifits.

Post#23 by Guest Mar. 28, 2015, 09:42PM

The next day, Becker purchased a house in Palm Springs for 2.7 million!! Investors money.
