Review: I'm mad at myself for not following my gut instinct with Global One Group. Fortunately, I only gave them $2500... All communication I had with G1G always ended with a reference to religion, seeing "Bless You," or "In his name" at the end emails SHOULD have raised a red flag in my head. However, it's difficult for us humans to realize and admit that we've been scammed.
And, where are all of the lemmings that rated G1G so high?
Given that most of them were written with several common unique qualities, I'd have to guess that they were born in the marketing dept. at G1G. Hopefully Rick Young will have access to a computer throughout his stay in Federal Prison, which he will use to make more positive comments about G1G right here on FPA...

Review: Oh dear, not much chance of seeing my £2500 again then. I could express my feelings with a string of expletives but what's the point.

Review: Yeah I jumped on the global one bandwagon back in 06 when my wife was recovering from brain surgery.....I kissed a few grand goodbye. Walt called me on my cell backpedaling and talking about the changes they were making and like a fool I believed them but yet again. If anyone is considering hooking up with these thieves....DON'T....They still continue to be the worst time of my life

Review: Hi Elaine,

Sorry to hear you too are a victim. I'm afraid even back in 2006, you would not have gotten your money back. Rick Young's character I think is best descirbed by the two postings on this Blog site that were written by both his brother and brother in law. When your own family wants nothing to do with you, everyone else should take notice.

We probably will not recoup our collective losses, but I for one will enjoy watching Mr. Pip Daddy and Mr. Willard serve time in a Federal Pen for their crimes. Why Walter Scotsen was not indicted as well remains a mystery........

Review: I was scammed by Rick Young and his two cohorts, Bill Willard and Walt. Several other folks that I know were scammed too. Anyone who still supports GloblOneGroup was almost certainly paid back using funds from new investors (Ponzi scheme at its best).

2007-10-08 1 Star Global One Group promised to make "Integrity Payments" for the November 2006 losses. My husband and I trusted them and kept our money in Global One. After that we lost everything. I'm talking hundreds of thousands of dollars. Haven't received a penny back from Global One Group. They are liars, thieves, and scam artists. People are afraid to complain about them for fear of retaliation.
