Further investigation into the scemes Brandon Hall is conducting as follows.
I had received an email from an individual claiming to be from Tennessee, who said he was also a victim of PCI, Diko Khatcherian -- who were or have been assiciated with Brandon Hall and/or Global Royalties. He also mentioned in his message that Brandon Hall and/or his "gem" company is taking him to court soon soon after he sent his email to me.
After I had stated my story on this site about what I know about these scams, Brandon Hall wrote me a letter stating that he is going to initiate legal proceedings against me unless I write a rebuttal. I have been, of course, totally ignired his threats.
Since then I have met a friend of mine who has been an investigator for approximately 20 years or so, and we talked about these scams. He had mentioned to me facts about Brandon Hall and his "company" and he asked me to let him read those emails regarding this issue.
He took it a little further and -- guess what -- the IP addresses of both the guy who claimed he was a victim of these scams telling me that he will be taken to court by brandon Hall. and the root IP of the messages Brandon Hall and his "so-called" legal advisors wrote me were ALL THE SAME physical location.
In conclusion, the "victim" in Tennessee is non-existant, it was actually Brandon Hall who wrote that email message. for the reason of simple intimidation and to have me write a rebuttal so he can carry on his fraudulant operations.
I must admit these "so-called" gem-companies operatiors are smart as some of the best criminals are. However, they will not be able to outsmart their natural destiny and karma will give them back ten-fold what he and his associates have been giving to their unsuspecting victims.
Be smart, do your research before you'd part with your money or any other monetary possessions.
