Take reviews with a pinch of salt - do your research

This website has good intentions but something's off. 4 reviews makes out a rating? Who do you think would register their review on a website like this? Who happy customers spend their time going around spreading good reviews? What strikes me is the casualness and inaccuracy of this website. We are talking about Dymphna Boholt of Knowledge Source, Australia based. The site refers to something altogether very different. Another company totally unrelated. Wrong! That tells how much (how little!) scrutiny is put in this review. The site name tells you anyway... Only pissed consumers would leave a review here, right? Flabbergasting!

I reserved a place for Dymphia Boholt's real estate 'Cash is King' seminar and bought the additional promo work books. These were never provided, even after calling the company and requesting they be sent out. I would give negative stars if it was allowed. 't Don't DdDon

Dymphna Boholt of Knowledge Source Fined For Bogus Claims. The Courier Mail newspaper in Brisbane Queensland Australia described Dymphna Boholt as "one of Australia`s most dogged get - rich - Quick seminers Spruikers with her fake testimonials" Dymphna Boholt claims she went from "virtually zero to a $3.5 million property portfolio in just 18 months had been penalised by Queensland Fair Trading regulators over bogas seminar claims.

She has charged individuals $25,000 in "mentoring fee`s and previously run foul of the ACCC over her Wildly Wealthy Womans mentoring program.

The ACCC successfully argued in court that Dymphna Boholt had made misleading representations as to the results that could be expected by participants in the WWW mentoring program. The Sunshine Coast - based property spruirker Dymphna Bolholt has been handed a $15,000 penalty and an enforceable undertaking "not to engage in conduct that is liable to misled the public or any individual within Australia in contravention of Australian Consumer Law.

Knowedge source Scam STAY AWAY

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Knowedge Source is a long running scam outfit run by a Greek scam artist that uses various version of the name "Jon Giaan" (not his real name!...hummm) "Jon Giaan" and his group of scam artists " have alot of run ins with the law on a number of occassions over the past 10 years- specifically for providing false and misleading information, and ripping off thousands of guilble people in Australia- Jon is partnered with a number of other scammers one of them is Ms Dymphna Boholt who lies about having accumilated great wealth through real estate, she in fact has no assets at all as Court ruling documents show (see below links for information on that), they have been happily ripping thousands of Australiand down the garden path while fleecing them off thousands and thousands of dollars on useless information easily found on the internet! I am a victim of this scam. Best that can be done is to provide public records relating to those two snake oil merchants read the links below and decide if you want to b victim no 2300 or to be wise and save your money- they are VERY sleek in gainig your trust just enough for you to transfer your from your bank account to theirs- thats really the business they are IN! on Jon Giaan or his real name jon Giannopoulos also jon giaan he trades as Knowledge Source, use to trade under a variety of names including giann and Giann pty ltd, Break Free events and many others... oh he now goes by Jon Giaan or jonn Giann a play on the spelling of his name to fool people googling him from finding out about his bad history ; he is referred to as Giannopoulos in this article by the Sydney Morning Herald; http://blogs.smh.com.au/radar/archives/2004/11/trust_me_im_a_w.html he is referred to as Jon Giannopoulos in the ASIC Ruling against him as a scammer; http://www.asic.gov.au/asic/asic.nsf/byheadline/04-339+ASIC+restrains+wealth+cre...⇄ /> he is referred to as Jon Giann in the age News paper article below; http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/mr-hotshot-shoots-himself-in-the-foot-2008****-...⇄ /> and more; http://www.jenman.com.au/news_item.php?id=400 http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2009/05/01/today-tonight-admits-stori...⇄ /> As for Dymphna well she was selling Real estate wealth advise since 2003. She sold it on the bases of having accumilated 60 properties in under 18 months (she's still claiming it, but now she probably does have it from all the poor souls she's ripped off), when questioned by the ACCC she had to sign an afidavit that contrary to her statement of holding 60 real estate properties she infact held NO property at all and very little assets of any kind. See below what Justice Steve Rares says about Dymphna's none existent assets in his ruling follow the link below; http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/journals/FedJSchol/2009/7.html These people are professional rip off and con artists. don't let them ripp you off.

Knowledge Source - Review in Education category

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Went to one of Dymphna's free seminars and the next day I got a follow up call asking for feedback from knowledge source, that in itself I was happy with, but during the call I casually mentioned I was young and motivated, which I thought nothing of at first. But I got another call from the same guy saying he had a "business opportunity" then proceeded to email me a link to a website and login details. So I go to the site, login, and watch a promotional video for a blatant pyramid scheme... So I told the guy I wasn't interested in his pyramid scheme then wrote a complaint to knowledge source describing his actions and how unprofessional that was. Got a response saying they'll forward my message to their manager. Ten days go by and nothing. So I email again asking for an update and all they said was "my reply: [copy and pasted the first response]" and I haven't received a reply since...

They are scammers and they promote pyramid scams which is illegal. Jon Giaan or Giann is a major scam artist.
