Shannon Patrick Murphy of Colorado will win you over with his South African accent, calm demeanor, family man charm, and attitude of success. He is a con man and a liar. He has recently taken up roots near the Broadmoor Hotel in the affluent neighborhoods of Colorado Springs. This is because he was foreclosed on and defaulted on several real estate and personal loans in the Teller County area including, Victor, Cripple Creek, Divide and Woodland Park. He is always talking about making it big in Green Energy, Sustainable Consulting, Gold Mining and Coal Consulting and always on the look out for an investor who will buy the load that he is shoveling. He has falsely invested and stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars in mining and environmental ponzi schemes. He has also taken advantage of people looking to help him and his family outside of his fake business ventures. Due to his recent string of foreclosures and personal and business bankruptcies he is no longer able to get bank financing.

Recently Shannon Murphy convinced a local Woodland Park, CO, journalist to write a article all about how he has added so much value to the community. The article is linked below in link #1. In the article he claims that he has "made some successful transactions" and "have no properties in foreclosure" this is because he has filled bankruptcy and cost banks and investors hundreds of thousands of dollars. He eroded the financial futures of dozens of people and several local companies who bought into his scams. He mentions in the article that there were some hard times and he implied that he acted like a good businessman a worked through them. This is not the case. He filled bankruptcy, defaulted on his obligations and moved somewhere else to start manipulating a new audience.

His previous residence in Teller County was foreclosed on before he moved to the Broadmoor area (in an effort to keep his image of success and manipulate the wealthy). This foreclosure is listed as link #2.

Mr. Murphy will likely end up in jail once the financial shakedown has played out. Claims are currently pending with the Colorado Attorney General as well as private party attorneys.

Shannon Murphy operates under several aliases and fictitious business names including:

Caldera Rim Mining Company LLc

I think Scam6 must be a scammer. Do you have any evidence as to what you are saying. You haven't been scammed by Shannon as you state "I have been approached to invest in Murphy Mining." Why don't you post the documents that prove what you are talking about, or give us the name of someone who has been "scammed" by Shannon. I'd be very interested in the details which, as we both know, don't exist. If you want, you can call me if you have the guts. My phone number is 817.808.2220. Oh, by the way, I'm an attorney and I would love to talk to you to determine whether this is true. If I don't hear from you then...well, we both know the answer.

This post is blatant slander. There is no ponzi scheme. We have worked with and for Mr. Murphy for years. He is an honorable, honest man. For you to mention his family is downright horrible. It’s a shame that anyone can post such lies anonymously without any credible evidence. There is no fraud or misrepresentation of any of his endeavourers.
Where will you be when his company becomes one of Colorado’s leading ventures? Perhaps you didn’t have the personal fortitude to follow through. Any one in business knows that there are always risks planning, time, and hard work involved to see any venture to a successful conclusion. Maybe you were expecting a get rich quick investment? A business of this type and scale isn’t for the greedy, but well suited for visionaries. Obviously, you are not one.
You should be sued for your comments. People like you try to cause harm to others because your own moral fiber is corrupt. You see the world with the filter of your own black heart and mind. Shame on you.

WARNING! Shannon is a fraud, crook, liar, cheat, thief and the most dishonest person I have ever came across. He is conniving and deceitful and full of ill intentions. He is about to be in some serious legal trouble due to his crooked endeavors and will soon be exposed for what he really is. I personally know of several lawsuits about to be filed against him if they haven't already been filed at this time and if our legal system does its job he will be facing some serious prison time. Don't let rusty bully or intimidate you as this is how these people try to operate. As they say, "the shits about to hit the fan". Take note.

To: "Anonymous"

My name is Shannon P. Murphy. I recently learned that you wrote and posted an article about me, entitled "Shannon P. Murphy Shannon Murphy Scam artist, ponzi scheme, Colorado Madoff, liar Woodland Park, Colorado" (the "Article"). To my knowledge, the Article is posted on the Scam Informer and Ripoff Report websites. This letter responds to the false and defamatory statements you make about me in your Article.

Commencing pre- 2008, the entire country (and many parts of the world) experienced the worst economic recession in over 75 years, and many sectors are still reeling from the negative impact and effects of this economic collapse and general downturn. My companies and I were not immune to the fallout from the Great Recession.

In response to one of your claims and to put things in perspective I lost two homes to foreclosure during this period. The other reckless claims and all the other defamatory statements you have made about me are totally false.

Your unsubstantiated assertions that I am a con man and a liar, that I am operating a ponzi scheme and taking advantage of investors and others, are all totally false. I have never defrauded anyone and never will.

Contrary to the advice of my legal and financial counselors, I have never filed a personal or a business bankruptcy. Instead, I have worked tirelessly for the last three plus years to protect the interests of my companies' stakeholders and creditors. The primary bank based in Nebraska with a local office in Colorado Springs, Colorado that had previously loaned money to my companies has been paid in full, with no discounts or write offs, and my companies and I have maintained an ongoing and good working relationship with a local bank throughout this period of time. Through the efforts of management, my companies have survived the economic firestorm of the last several years. In fact, two of the mining companies will be in production in late 2011.

On Friday, May 20, 2011, I authorized my attorney to file a civil action against you in the District Court, El Paso County, Colorado, Case Number 2011-CV-3199. That action is now pending and I am suing you for economic and non-economic damages caused by the false and defamatory statements you have made about me. Because you have chosen to make these statements without disclosing your identity, I have asserted my defamation claims against John and/or Jane Doe(s) and/or Doe Entity(ies).

However, as soon as I am able to do so under applicable rules of procedure, I will issue subpoenas to the companies that operate Scam Informer and Ripoff Report, compelling the hosts of these websites to disclose all information they have about your true identity.

You can rest assured that I will aggressively pursue all avenues to learn your true identity and I will aggressively pursue my damage claims against you.

There is an easy test for Shannon Murphy to pass if these accusations are false. Just answer these few questions;

1. Have you ever fully returned an investors money with profits from a business, or have you just used "other" investors money to silence some people who were hot on your trail?
2. Do you take money from one investment group to fund operations for another investment group?
3. Have you ever paid 1 cent of distributions from profits of operations to any investors?
4. Are you continuing to seek investors for "new" investment opportunities before paying distributions to current investors?
5. Do you open "new" companies for every "new" opportunity rather than build out current companies with current investors?

The answers to these few questions will quickly tell us if Shannon Murphy is a liar and a cheat, or if he's a legitimate business person.
