IntellaShares admin threatens investors with Ponzi blacklist
Jay Fantano hails from New York and describes himself as “a golf professional” who “teaches privately and competes locally”.
Fantano is also one of the four admins of IntellaShares, a $2.50 micro Ponzi scheme.
IntellaShares launched earlier this year, with Fantano assuring investors this was going to be a different type of opportunity:
We are competent, convicted, and committed.
We have seen enough failures in the last 90 days and we want to do something about it.
Despite such reassurances, a few weeks ago IntellaShares collapsed. Fantano and his admins were quick to announce a relaunch, but as of yet nothing has materialized.
Against a backdrop of previous Ponzi failures that purportedly spurred on the launch of IntellaShares, some of the schemes investors have gotten restless.
Now, in an effort to quell their concerns, Fantano has issued an ultimatum.
The concept of a Ponzi blacklist, wherein Ponzi admins from around the world can look up trouble-maker investors (read: those who ask questions), is a novel concept.
Especially when you consider that those who make the loudest noise when a Ponzi runs out of funds, are also likely going to be those who invested the most.
Admins who participated would be, as it were, biting the hands that feed the schemes they operate.
Nonetheless, in a recent update sent out to IntellaShares investors, a frustrated Fantano wrote:
We are only working as hard as we can. The mean messages to us are de motivation and cause the process to take longer.
I’m surprised at how little patience some people have. Couldn’t imagine what some of you are like in the DMV LOLOL.
It seems you want everything perfect, don’t want to wait, don’t listen or read updates and while we are working our asses off yore (sic) just going to jump into a handful of quarter mile sprint programs.
When we make announcements that’s when you will get updates.
Have some respect, class, and appreciation. Also try to remember that we are a company and not a democratic organization with public obligations.
We operate in the realm of reality, I (Jay) personally recommend you do the same.
…..etc, I don’t see members lining up to help with anything they can. I could ask, but that doesn’t prove much loyalty.
And in reference to the die hards and supporters, you are noticed and will be rewarded for your steadfastness.
Disputers and openly disrespectful members will be added to an industry BLACKLIST that will be available to program owners only…
So be careful what you do now it could result in loss of ability to become a member of any program in short order.
Accountability…. Is coming. Real company, real people, real products.
Who owns or operates the purported “industry blacklist” Fantano plans to add troublesome IntellaShares investors to, was not disclosed.
As for when IntellaShares’ “real company, real people and real products” might surface, investors who dare to raise the question were given the following response:
No push over admins here, don’t even waste the energy, be patient and helpful. Start NOW’S
ANYONE WHO ASKS WHEN RE LAUNCH IS ON THIS POST WILL BE REMOVED. “YOU GONNA LEARN TODAY.”
I for one meanwhile welcome the news of Jay Fantano’s Ponzi blacklist. It’ll certainly make it easier to track who’s involved in the various Ponzi schemes doing the rounds.
Anyone know where can I get a copy?
Yeah, that’ll work.
We all know how ponzi players always use their real names and addresses, so, how could it fail ??
I think we can safely file Fantanos’ threats under B for bullshit
that should read : We are ‘incompetent’ and will be ‘convicted’ for our sadass ponzi, and further ‘committed’ by the court, for our clearly visible raging mental illness 🙂
poor little fantano, cannot set up his little ponzi scheme, and is taking it out on his poor little idiot investors.
he is like a caricature of a mafia boss, all huff and puff, but ends up providing comic relief 🙂
i mean, take a look at his picture in the intella shares review here, with his hat and chains, and he’s just such a wannabe mafioso [hahaha].
Oz, quoting IntellaShares/Fantano:
Intimidation tactic that easily could backfire in spectacular fashion.
The targets of this thuggery need to look at FTC vs. Jeremy Johnson et al, commonly known as the iWorks case. It is from December 2010 and sparked epic litigation, some of which continues.
In any event, this allegation appears on Page 7 of the FTC’s original complaint:
and really…..admins are going to cut their noses off to spite their faces?
if a scammer like ken russo complains, they’re really going to blackball him? One of the top pimps in the industry? I think not.
INTELLASHARES company is real and legit, do not ride on other’s success to keep this shitty website of yours alive!!!!!
What’s “real and legit” about a Ponzi scheme?
lmao. this site will be here far long after intellashares dies AGAIN – if it ever finds enough suckers to get started again that is.
