Does Anybody Really Know Who Peter J. Burns III Is?

My fellow entrepreneurs,

I have been contacted by several sources who said they have done background checks on Peter Burns and from looking at a few of his profiles on the Club E Network, Facebook and LinkedIn; they cannot find out anywhere that he actually graduated from college? I heard that he has said that he attended a course there and graduated from it, but isn't it a little misleading to list on your social network profiles that you could or could not have graduated from college and that you got a grad degree? Even if it is not so, why list it that way, the general audience, especially those he is trying to influence would not know if he just attended a course or two? Or that he attended a college and did not finish?  Did he really serve in the Army or a Veteran?  Was he a Ranger? Who knows, any comments on this?

He often told me that he was accepted to a few of the military academies but turned them down...what about this?

If you have done the research and know the answers, please let us know?

Peter is Currently in Ethiopia setting up connections with powerful people. I know he is a fraud i have ways to contact him if anybody wants to Sue him or anything.

He's in Southern CA after getting shit-canned from his gig in Ethiopia. He's scamming people now in U.S. He never pays anyone, and has nothing in his name. He is a complete and utter fraud, wife beater and money launderer. Got enough?

Last known he is in Las Vegas. He is scamming as usual. I get about a call a week from someone who saw me here or on Rip Off Report. He is still finding suckers because at least one of them is telling me they have a deal he is going to get funded for them and he will get a big commission from that. Knowing what I know about this scum bag he has something up his sleeve that will grab off as much cash as he can get his hands on and he will protect himself by funneling the money to someone's checking account other than his own. I don't know what he is doing with the money he is scamming or if he is being successful. Lots o judgements out there against him.

PJBIII never graduated from any major university. If he moves his lips he is lying. Don't be fooled by this scam artist. He will cheat you out of your money. Just got him again on a scam and he is working hard to get money together. I get at least a call a week and many hits on my Word Press Blog. If you know where he is please contact me. jlmayhew@gmail.com

This is the latest collection of BS from this crook on Linkdin and his web site:

I'm an entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word. Although I grew up in a totally "corporate" environment in New Canaan, Connecticut, I have always loved the thought and reality of owning my own businesses...and I have...over 100 times since the age of 19. THIS IS ALL TOTAL BS. HIS FATHER WAS A MARKETING SALESMAN FOR A ADVERTISING FIRM. SUCCESSFUL IN HIS OWN RIGHT AND ALL REPORTS A REALLY NICE GUY. HIS TWO BROTHERS ARE SUCCESSFUL AND WON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM. HIS SISTER SEEMS LIKE SHE KNOWS WHAT HE IS UP TO AND APPARENTLY HAS CONTACT WITH HIM. I CANNOT FIND ANYWHERE WHERE THIS POS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL AT ANYTHING BUT SCAMMING PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR MONEY OR USING THEM TO ADVANCE HIS OWN AGENDA. CONTINUED

MORE OF THE BS. Financing your business is never easy and I had to invent many different ways to fund my own enterprises over the past 38 years. As a result, I got pretty good at it and made some top notch private funding resources connections. YOU GOT THAT RIGHT. I HAVE A LIST OF SOME TWENTY OF US HERE IN PHOENIX THAT WERE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO TRUST THIS CREEP AND WERE TAKEN FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS IN CASH.

I started or co-founded a couple of well known entrepreneurial organizations along the way, YEO and Club Entrepreneur. In the Club E chapter in Phoenix with 10,000 members, I sent out an email to my membership and suggested a one-on-one meeting with anyone interested. One thousand members took me up and I met them all over an 8 month marathon period. MANY OF THE PEOPLE HE IS TALKING ABOUT HERE WERE UNFORTUNATE ENOUGH TO TRUST HIM AND WE WERE ALL TAKEN. HE TALKS A GOOD STORY BUT IT IS ALL HOT AIR.

MORE OF THE BS CONTINUED:
In my hour long meetings with each, nearly all need start-up or expansion capital and I found myself becoming a "financing machine," raising millions of dollars for my members right out of those meetings. After I sold out a portion of Club Entrepreneur a year later, I decided to start my own capital raising businesses on a "for profit" basis, rather than giving away my hard earned skillsets and connections.

B3 Funding Partners was born and soon I was taking in millions of dollars of funding deals. Quickly, I expanded from our first Santa Monica location to another office in Scottsdale. I had a "machine" going with applications flying in and I kept having to bring on and educate more and more in staff just to keep up. Things looked grand...until I woke up. THIS IS WHERE HE SCAMMED ALL OF US ON GETTING A HUGE INHERITENCE FROM HIS FATHER HAVING PASSED AWAY IN SEPT. OF 2013. HE WAS TO COME UP WITH 5 THEN 6 MILLION WHICH HE WAS GOING TO USE TO PAY BACK THE PEOPLE WHO GAVE HIM MONEY TO START B3 FUNDING. B3 F, MADE A COUPLE OF DEALS WHICH HE SWALLOWED THE MONEY FOR. HE NEVER PUT A DIME INTO THE COMPANY AND SENT THE COMMISSIONS HE MADE FROM THE COUPLE OF DEALS THAT DID FINALLY GO DOWN TO SOME COMPANY IN PHOENIX THAT HE HAD SET UP FOR A MUSIC PROMOTIONAL DEAL. HIS FATHER OF COURSE DIED PENNILESS AND HE SCAMMED ONE OF OUR INTERNS AND HIS DAD FOR $86,000 BY SELLING THEM AN OPTION ON AN IPO STOCK HE WAS GOING TO PURCHASE WITH THE INHERITENCE MONEY. ABOUT A WEEK LATER HE SKIPPED TOWN AND FLED TO CANADA. HE EVEN WAS LOW ENOUGH TO GRAB A LADY WHO UNFORTUNATELY TRUSTED HIM TO BORROW MONEY AGAINST HER CAR TITLE TO PAY FOR HIS TICKET. I FOUND OUT LATER THAT HE HAD THAT TICKET PAID FOR BY AN INVESTOR IN CANADA. SHE OF COURSE NEVER GOT THE MONEY BACK. HE DID THE SAME TO ANOTHER COLLEGE STUDENT WHO BORROWED AGAINST HER NEW CHALLENGER FOR $9K. HE TOOK THE CASH AND THEY REPOED HER CAR.

ARE YOU BEGINNING TO GET THE PICTURE? MORE OF THE INCREDIBLE STORIES: I was becoming nothing more than a "suit," the type of corporate guy that I had always avoided being. This just wasn't my bag so I decided to shut the doors, close the business and I went on a humanitarian mission with an international NGO to Ethiopia for six months. I still have a home there and actually have 42 of my own projects in various stages in process. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY OR WHAT PROJECTS HE MIGHT HAVE STARTED IN AFRICA. I KNOW I GOT HIM FIRED FROM THIS NON PROFIT AFTER CALLING THEM AND CLUING THEM IN ON WHAT THIS HORRID HUMAN BEING WAS UP TO. HE WAS USING THEIR NAME TO GET HIM RESPECTABLITY. I CAUGHT HIM HERE IN THE AP IN PHOENIX WHEN HE RETURN FROM AFRICA AND HAD TWO PROCESS SERVERS THERE ALSO TO SERVE HIM. HE HAS AN ARMSLENGTH LIST OF JUDGEMENTS AGAINST HIM.

Anyway, I'm back, at least part-time and I "office" on the outside patio of my friend's multi million dollar mansion in Southern California. As soon as I returned to the States, I was bombarded with fellow entrepreneurs seeking funding help for their ventures. At first I demurred but then decided, why not? I could pick and choose those funding deals that interested me and in some cases would offer me an equity stake in their companies for a successful funding and with the "value added" of someone with my experience and connections being part of their growing company. THIS HAS TO BE COMPLETE NONSENSE. HE HAS LEFT TRACKS IN FLORIDA, ATLANTA, DENVER, PHOENIX, SCOTTSDALE, SANTA MONICA, AND ELSEWHERE. HIS COVER IS COMPLETELY BLOWN SO I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYONE LOOKING TO HIM TO GAIN FINANCING. I JUST GOT HIM UNCOVERED IN A SCAM HE WAS TRYING TO PULL OFF IN COLORADO. I WILL PURSUE HIM UNTIL I CAN PUT HIM IN JAIL.

In the past two months I have now secured a $600k equity investment in a neuroscience start-up, an $800k loan for a medical practices roll up and a $625k credit facility for a Co-working space acquisition. I am even working on a $10mm loan against a $600mm precious metals deposit. I own equity in each and I get the fees I posted for each deal too. Now, that's the kind of business I want to do from now on. IF HE IS SO VERY SUCCESSFUL MAYBE HE WOULD LIKE TO PAY UP THE MANY OUTSTANDING DEBTS HE CREATED IN ALL THE AFOREMENTIONED CITIES. HE HASN'T RETURNED TO AFRICA BECAUSE I AM SURE HE IS AFRAID IF HE SCAMMED ANYONE THERE THAT THEY WON'T GO TO THE POLICE. HE WILL JUST WIND UP BEING JUNGLE FODDER.

Max Income Jim said...

HE CONTINUES WITH THE STORIES:
No more office. No more employees. Just my lap top, cell phone, some eager beaver virtual interns... and that's my story and that's my new business model. HIS NEW BUSINESS MODEL IS JUST LIKE THE OLD ONE. HE WILL SCAM ANYONE HE CAN GET CLOSE TO AND PULL IN MONEY THAT HE NEVER INTENDS TO RETURN. ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION THAT I AND ALL THE OTHER SUCKERS SHOULD HAVE ASKED WHEN I HEARD ALL THIS BS. WHERE ARE ANY OF THESE 100 BUSINESSES HE SUPPOSEDLY STARTED AND WHY DOESN'T HE HAVE ANY RECOGNIZABLE ASSETS. HE WAS DEPOSED IN SCOTTSDALE BY A PERSON WHO LOANED HIM MONEY THAT HE IN TURN BILKED OUT OF 100S OF THOUSANDS. HE, HIS EX WIFE, HIS TWO DAUGHTERS, AND HIS SISTER AND NO ONE CAME UP WITH ANYTHING THAT IS HIS. NO CAR, NO HOME, NO NOTHING. HE NEVER PAID THE INTERNS HE IS TALKING ABOUT. I GOT THE INTERNS ON THE LAST GO AROUND TO DUMP HIM AFTER HE FAILED TO PROVIDE THEM WITH THEIR PROMISED PAYMENT. IN AFRICA I WAS TOLD THAT HE WAS LIVING IN A CHEAP HOTEL WHILE HE CLAIMS THAT HE OWNS A HOME THERE. REALLY? DO NOT GIVE THIS CREEP ANY OF YOUR MONEY. YOU WILL NEVER SEE IT AGAIN. CALL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY UP TO DATE INFO 520 609 9243 OR JLMAYHEW@GMAIL.

SOLOMON ALESH,
Please let me know if you have any info on where this sleezeball is hiding right now. He says he is in NY but I was just told he was in Santa Monica. His picture on his web site,

financingdebtandequity.com

is from an earlier scam he was pulling on a guy who lived somewhere in the foothills outside LA. I thought this guy might have dumped him after me and another guy told him what was going on. He is still using that guys office address on Wilshire Blvd, in Beverly Hills. Call me or send me an e mail if you have any info. jlmayhew@gmail.com or 520 609 9243.

Well our little crook is hard at it. He has started a company he calls "The Exchange Collection". The deal is; if you own a luxury villa, a yacht, a high end aircraft, etc. etc. he will arrange an exchange with someone to rent your asset. They will pay for the common uses, electric, gas, food, etc. in cash or credit card and they will exchange points. These phantom points then are used to trade elsewhere for other services and or rentals. Apparently then the company takes a share of the points and gets someone to cash them out for their payment for arranging the services.

Two things that are glaring about this deal. Peter has done a points exchange deal before her in Phoenix. The people involved in the trades tell me that he cost them about $150K. Second part of this deal is that all the customers who would be involved are high income parties that make perfect marks for this weasel.

My Suggestion would be that even if you are thinking about doing anything with this charlatan don't. There are a number of legitimate companies in this business out there. According to a post that Peter put out a couple of months back he has taken a partner, whom I researched, in this business, and if it is the same individual he bankrupted a company like this in 2006.

Notice something about all the postings for Peter J Burns III other than mine and others who have been cheated by him. All those glorious claims about how great an entrepreneur he is are posted by him personally. He has fabricated each and every claim he makes on line. If you contact me I will be happy to send you the list of judgments and court actions that have been taken against this jerk back as far as 1985. This isn't anything new for him. He is a narcissistic sociopath and he doesn't care who he bilks money from. He promised me over and over again when I was foolish enough to trust him that he would never hurt me or that I would never lose money in any deal he got me into. He signed documents with me personally guaranteeing loans I made to him for $75K. He guaranteed them also with his phantom Burns Family Trust which apparently has zero assets. Nothing about this man is legitimate. He has a past history of domestic violence although when confronted by others who can fight back he reluctant to make any physical effort to protect himself. His partners in Florida literally threw him out of town.
