Micheal Colonna has a long, long history of scamming people. I worked with him at Fluor Corporation in Irvine CA around 1988-****, where he lied about his background and a trust fund.

I think he met his wife there early 1989 . He was renting a black Ferrari back then.

He is an accomplished liar, a cheat and steals with a smile.

Believe NOTHING he says. Believe NOTHING he shows you.

He belongs in jail. Perhaps he's there now?


How's life these days for Michael Colonna, John Toscana or Michael Torino... all aliases?

Given the amount of funds you've taken from trusting individuals, you should be jail doing time - so go cry your blues elsewhere. No one on this website gives a rats *** about your perjury claims.


Michael is now operating under the alias of John Toscana and World Class IT - trying to scam new individuals out of millions. He's reportedly in the Bainbridge Island area in Seattle and is using a PO Box rental business as his company address.

BEWARE...of this individual who will play on your sympathies and tell you lie after lie about himself and his CLOUD business..


Geez Dude - you need to look up the definition of Cyberstalking: Most stalking laws require that the perpetrator make a credible threat of violence against the victim; others include threats against the victim's immediate family; and still others require only that the alleged stalker's course of conduct constitute an implied threat". It doesn't appear from the two complaints posted on this website against you, that they are "threatening" you in any way. They're just making it known how you defrauded them out of thousands of dollars - and there's no crime in making that public knowledge!


You didn't deny any of the accusations against you so how can you be the one being bullied when it sounds like you stole lots of money from lots of people???

Gencom & Michael Colonna are Frauds

We've lost $50,000 to an investment in Gencom, Inc. by learning that the Share Certificate issued to us has a forged signature. The founder of Gencom, Inc. - Michael J. Colonna is not who he professes to be and doesn't have the credentials he purports to have. The company is likely bogus even though there are recent scientific journal publications about Gencom. So if you ask to invest in Gencom, Inc. or want to hire Michael for consulting work under his consulting firm called Advanced Computer Sciences - beware! A report has been filed with the Santa Ana FBI so contact them to file any reports about this person so that together we can prosecute him.

He started scamming before 1988 when he worked at Fluor Corp in Irvine CA. He lied about his background, he lied about a trust fund, he lied about everything.

Every claim he makes is false.

Another website has two of his pictures. Google John Toscana.

Some say he is/was in Seattle, perhaps as a vendor to Microsoft.

Likes to lease expensive cars, which are typically repossessed.


I have had a recent run-in with this scam artist, luckily all of these posts helped me cut ties before losing more money. He is still floating the lie that he has a multi-million dollar trust fund, it's just that unfortunately his funds are tied up at the moment.

I have researched and found several addresses for him, associated individuals with all of their info and addresses, some phone numbers, plus a bogus promissory note. I will be forwarding all of this to the FBI, as well as Orange County San Diego County, and Riverside County District Attorneys. Please contact me to share info.

What a ***. tbs4554 at g-mail


We have no clue why this person isn't in jail - other than each of the four law enforcement agencies we filed reports with, decided to decline pursuit as we hadn't lost sufficient money in the scam. Little do they know that we are likely just the tip of the iceburg given all the aliases this person uses.


John Toscana is Michael J. Colonna and trying to do business under WorldClassIT.Net.

Do not trust or hire this individual as he's a scam artist who has fictitious resume's to suit his needs.

His work is shoddy and he'll always provide reasons for missing deadlines and rationalizations for why his work is late. Do not trust this man or his wife Shannon Colonna.


I've learned that Michael likely derived most of his "knowledge" that he bases latest business on ( from his job at KPMG, Inc. Apparently they never learned that his resume was pure fiction...

but this explains why he always had excuses for non-performance. I've "heard" that he now operates under the alias of John Toscana and is living in the Seattle area. I really feel for the people he scammed money from. He used to lead us to believe he was wealthy - living in Newport Beach - but it turns out he lived in a small duplex in Irvine and rented the high end cars he used to drive to work...

He told many of us that he had over 20 high end cars that he parked in his subteranean garage....

all lies... Steer clear of this individual.


Beware - Michael Colonna is now going by the name of John Toscana and has affiliated himself with the Microsoft Cloud Platform group - but he never posts his photo... He is still trying to garner business under his website - which is full of information he cuts and pastes from other websites.

He's either in the San Diego or Seattle, WA.

He purports to have 7 staff - which is NOT TRUE! Be very wary of this man.


I believe he also did consulting work for Amgen from 1991 to 1994.

Amgen is a legit biotech company - headquarters in Thousand Oaks, CA. I now doubt his creditials for this job.


Michael used to work for KPMG, we assume he was hired using bogus resume' credentials. Beware of this person...


Michael J. Colonna is still on the lose so beware. If you run into him and are scammed out of money then contact the Orange County DA who has several complaints on file against Michael and Gencom, Inc.


I've been reading these posts and find it amazing that Mr. Colonna would post a rebuttal saying he was being Cyber Stalked by individuals he scammed out of money!!

How does that work?? He didn't refute a single claim against himself - but decried how these postings were detrimental to his health. I'd wager to say that he aged the poor people he's scammed and caused them years of grief and heartache. The other interesting thing is that there's not one word in the Bio Tech world about Gencom's technology purportedly bought out by a Swiss company.

If it was all that it professed be - surely it would make front page news ...... For the sake of those defrauded by Mr.

Colonna - I hope the feds prosecute him to the fullest! Why should he get off easy considering all the grief he's caused his "investors" who appear to have been former colleagues and friends.
