Robot my arse, you scammed me and lied and lied about the returns and I did nothing but lose $4000.00 over three months in my betting account not too mention the $4,400 you took from me for your sh*thouse "membership". You thieving arseholes. Hope you rot in hell somewhere pricks!

It is also now very obvious that the owners of ozripoff.com who are Larry Pickering and Wayne Evans are also involved with PGI as they keep taking any comments regarding PGI straight down off there site so it doesnt affect there wallets.


I have experienced with them (well their supposedly affiliate company Worldnet Corporation). The history: I joined up back then with Worldnet Corporation (same people as PGI but different name). Was told to transfer money to their trust account and Jonathan (PGI's director - ASICS told me) actually email me (have a copy of that email) and told me the money I put into that account for trading doesn't belong to the company because it is held in a trust account. Everything was fine, receiving updates through emails (one of the email coming from PGI though, that's why I know they are one and the same).


One day they claim because of legislation changes the investment scheme is facing technical difficulties but to show that they are committed the account is tranferred to their affiliate company and that company is, yes you guess it, Prosperity Group International. They then try to get me to join their trader program. I receive an email from Robin Panozzo that I have around $3800 in my account and if join their trader program I don't have to pay anything but I'll be left with $200 in my account. I refuse to join and now can't contact them. Everytime you call, the receiption will pretend to find Rob for me but he is always unavailable and will call back, but guess what, didn't hear anything from them. Ask for Jonatahn and told he is working from home but they refuse to give you his direct number. So you decide whether they are scammer or not.


Then this pathetic reponse from one of the directors...

We are a completely legitimate organization. Just because people don't make the returns we tell them doesn't mean we are a scam!


All we have to do is send them the trades each day and we are immune from prosecution. Who cares if the trades don't win most of the time? If you're dumb enough to buy a betting system then you have to accept the risks.

Well it's Friday afternoon and I had some time on my hands. I wonder what "thorough" investigation techniques ScamWatchAU used in assuring us Prosperity Group International Pty Ltd (PGI) and their Autotrader software wasn't a scam?


Let's have a little look at PGI and their claims...


Automated trading
Yes, apparently this company can make returns of 70%, unlike any other business in Australia! What's that you say Year on Year? Nope - Month on Month!


Tax Free Returns
-Because you're betting on markets you don't have to pay tax! Guess what else? PGI don't have to have a AFSL so there's no oversight or compliance! Actually considering the 30% margin on your profits plus the $40 a month service fee, maybe you'd want them to be taxed so you could at least claim expenses.


COMET grant
By now you've heard how the Commercialising Emerging Technologies (COMET) has thrust legitimacy on this product. But this grant was given to "Insider News Pty Ltd" a company based in SA, who don't mention PGI the Queensland company who apparently have "secured worldwide distribution rights".


But wait there's more!


Looking at Insider News Pty Ltd's registrant contact email address you see [email protected] When I search this name I get a couple of results, but I'm betting (pun intended) this isn't the dentist, but rather the Tony Rotondo whose use of copryright infringing horse racing software BettorData landed him with a $760,000 fine. Tony's partner in the BettorData fiasco is Dominic Dibiani who was convicted for a Mobile phone spamming and betting scam.


This raises questions about why the government is funding dodgy business practices, but luckily my previous worries about Insider and PGI being unconnected was allayed: guess where Tony lives? The Gold Coast.

Here is some more info for your research!

Welcome to the train of the Gold Coast white collar crooks. Larry Pickering aka Lawrence David Pickering, John Sharp, Wayne Evans, Keith Matty, Glen Hewitt, Larry PICKERING JUNIOR, Sylvia & Gus COMBATTI, Julian & Donna PRICE (Wayne evans sister) . These guys are so weak they hide behind the phone using false names, pretty web sites and false addresses to push their worthless crap. Not one of them have it in them to pull off a successful legitimate operation.

Larry Pickering and John Sharp both have owned over a dozen scam companies which are usually managed by Wayne Evans ( professional shit juggler whos wife is Kathy Evans) who has two small time hustlers Keith matty ( wife Dainer Matty who owns a gym in surfers paradise) and Glenn Hewitt ( ex Lanscape supplier ) that push their shit software which is not worth the time you spend downloading it from the net.
The Industries they opperate in include:
Horse racing ( Soft Holdings, Rosekirk, BALDWIN IVORSEN GROUP & AZURE DENE LIMITED)
Sports Arbitrage ( Cohen Strachan Investment aka CSI Arbitrage www.csiarbitrage.com.au )
Weddings ( Wedding Bells ) in partnership with Wayne Evans ( you should see wayne in person trying to promote his front Business in a pretty little dress) Hilarious .

Larry Pickering I feel sorry for your sons Ben Pickering, Larry Pickering Jnr, Charlie Pickering and not to mention the other half dozen kids to woman you don’t pay child support too. You are weak as piss mate.

Larry you are old in the tooth and its all over soon for you chump, you spent the remainder of your life running, hiding, and squealing like a girl when you’re caught. Ha ha ha im on a fast ride to the top and I dont have to look over my shoulder every second of the day.

Larry Pickering also owns www.Ozripoff.com heres proof.
Larry owned softholdings horse racing software, here is a post I found on the oz rip off site

Success!

I hear a lot of complaining about horse racing software, I purchased a program from Softholdings and have used it nearly every day for over a year.

I just want to say that their system has made me a lot of money, it's the best investment I've ever made.

*****************************************************************************************************

Funny that the date submitted on this post is 2009 and softholdings closed dow in 2007 cloing its servers with it meaning the software cold not get a live data feed. You will also notice that there is no post on CSI Arbitrage on the oz ripoff site either, evan after I tried to post one myself...
