Scammers!

I received an email that was a receipt for a payment of $48.50 USD. I had never heard of them before. I replied to that email asking what the charge was for, and never heard back from them. I then noticed the charge on my credit card. I called my cc company and they found I had been charged 3 times. It looked like they were just going to keep charging me that amount until I noticed. My cc company canceled all 3 from my balance and blocked them. I have never done business with these people, so not sure how they got my cc info and charged me. I'm not even in Australia, where they are supposedly based. FYI - the payment on my cc said "The Trustee for the Knowledge Events Trust"

I have run into the same situation and I have never heard of the same company, The Trustee for Knowledge Events Trust. I was checking my bank account information and found an amount for $48.50 had been taken out, so I went to my bank and they found that I had been charged in October twice from the same people.

I also tried several ways of corresponding with them, but could not find any information on who I could contact. So, I went to my bank and they are filling paperwork to check into this being a fraud. They also credited back the full amount of what had been taken out. However, she said that they may come back and dispute it and it could take weeks or even months to hear back from them, and they have to put the money back in my account if they can prove it was something I did, But, I absolutely know that it is definitely something I did not buy or order.

I just can't figure out how they fort my information. I even had to get a new card because of this situation.

Knowledge Source - Review in Education category

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.

She sold it on the bases of having accumilated 60 properties in under 18 months (she's still claiming it, but 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 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 scam scam scam. shame on these people they are nothing but a bunch of criminals! don't give them a cent.
