Is MacAnthony using industrial espionage to spy?

MRI ConstructionQuote from a recent thread in the MRISG Members Only Forum which specifically excludes anyone with MRI connections having sight of the forum.

« “This is a message to the informer’s on this forum.
What you must bear in mind is that if M.R.I. was the reputable company that we were led to believe then this forum would not need to exist.

Maybe you are an employee and are getting paid for passing information on which would mean that you posted a fictitious story in order to gain access to the forum, which to a certain extent, I can understand as you have obviously been indoctrinated and trained into the M.R.I. way of doing things and industrial espionage is ,today ,big business so make sure you are paid accordingly.
Maybe you were a genuine honest investor who has had a very large carrot dangled in front of them and has been promised many reward’s and could soon be the proud owner of a gleaming new finished apartment (including furniture) somewhere in the world. You must consider the fact that this forum only exists because of broken promises from M.R.I so I really hope you get your rewards. Either way, whatever your reason’s you can rest assured that you have contributed to Mr Macanthony’s goal of achieving billionaire status before his 40th birthday. What you get out of it is entirely up to you
Another aspect to seriously consider is that the member’s of this forum are honest citizens who were sucked in (like you) by the well oiled manipulative machine of M.R.I. (ex time share) which spotted an avenue to greater riches.
Whether you are an employee or a victim of some serious carrot dangling something else to bear in mind is the fact that this forum and it’s members “will not” going away and these law abiding honest hard working investor’s have now found the courage to stand up and fight for justice.
If you are an employee you will probably read this and have a good laugh!.  Something to do with the training iI expect. If you are the victim of the carrot dangling then all we can hope for is that you enjoy your reward’s and that one day your conscience gets the better of you knowing that, by divulging information and trying to pre-empt our every move you have been a major contributor to the decimation of hundreds of lives and future’s such as broken marriages, bankruptcy, lost pension funds and serious health problems brought about by the worry and stress caused by this company. The whole of this message may mean absolutely nothing to you and you might take the stance “Who cares, I’ve got what I want” but you can rest assured that one day in the near future your identities will probably be revealed and justice will be done.
In the words of Mr Macanthony “What goes around comes around»

MacAnthony Realty International (MRI) Offices

Antonio Flores ‘ Blog Reports on MRI Headquarters

According to the Companies House, MRI International has relocated to the Spanish capital, Madrid, presumably with the intention of (dis)accommodating the company’s ever-expanding number of disgruntled clients.

Since Calle Azulinas to us means nothing, we decided to send a member of our firm to talk to their ever-attentive staff members, and find out if they would be willing to assist. However, when we got there, all we found was a decaying block of flats for the Madrid middle-class with no physical trace of the address they now claim to, which is Calle Azulinas 7, Bajo Izda (Ground floor 7).

Darragh on being ripped off

Yep that headline will no doubt give bitter competitors and my stalkers - the SG crowd – a little chuckle – but yours truly has been ripped off a couple of times over the last few years. Contrary to popular forum belief I have never ripped anyone off or robbed from them in all my time in business and nor will I ever do. I ran a massive organisation selling thousands of homes in 19 countries across the world and many times to people who just couldn’t afford them but got caught up in the buying frenzy that built the overseas property industry up. Some of these clients did not complete on what they bought due to their financial circumstances changing 18 months later when the properties were finished. They then lost their money due to this which is unfortunate, but not because of me or the companies I ran. That’s life and what happens when people take chances chasing a return on an investment. I am no different and had a large percentage of my wealth invested with an investment firm who put it into one of Bernie Madoffs funds. I received a phone call the Christmas before last to tell me all the money was gone. In one phone call a large percentage of my wealth was robbed and gone never to be seen again. I didn’t stalk Madoffs employees or companies, surf websites and join forums slagging him off nor threaten the investment firm with the press etc. because I knew when I gave them these monies in search of large percentage returns, there was a risk involved. Of course I didn’t expect to lose the lot, maybe worst case scenario 15% if it didn’t perform, but I agreed to invest the money, I signed it over, I gave this investment firm the ok to try and get me greater profits. Facts are that whenever you invest money there is an element of risk attached and I have always said over the years in brochures and TV interviews, do not invest money you don’t have and do not over extend yourself and go into it with eyes wide open always. So not only were my businesses suffering due to clients not completing on properties I had built for them, now my personal finances were hit hard and I had been scammed, ripped off and totally screwed along with millions of other people. Yes Darragh MacAnthony was robbed, scammed, ripped off and totally screwed out of millions - but with no complaints. Throw in the 780 clients who had signed contracts with one of my construction companies to build apartments for them and who walked away and failed to pay the final monies due on completion by contract when the apartments were built. That’s correct, over 780 clients worldwide failed to sign for apartments I had built for them and left a €30 million euro hole on my company’s balance sheet. Of course these clients will go on forums, join action groups and complain about me and my companies, but hard facts and contract facts are simple, they contracted to buy properties that I built for them and then when recession hit, they walked away and now I am the bad guy. Lets also throw in the 15 million euro in commissions owed to other companies of mine by developers who went bankrupt due to similar client completion issues. We are talking about multi-millions gone and all this in an 18 month period. For the final nail in the so called coffin, try paying out millions to furniture companies on behalf of clients and see them all go bankrupt before delivery and leave me holding the bill and of course receive venom from clients. Listen, I’m not looking for sympathy or telling a hard luck story, just the true reflection of life and what we all have to deal with on various levels. They are great lessons in life and ones thankfully I have learnt early on and prepare me for the future as I approach my 35th birthday and life back at work after a few years off getting married and having children. What doesn’t kill you certainly makes you stronger - is my favourite saying in life!!

Darragh on Forums

A big pet hate of mine for obvious reasons but mainly due to the fact that anyone can go on them, create them and basically accuse you of being a rapist, pedophile or a rip-off merchant and have complete anonymity without recourse and many times just to knock you down a peg or two. These forums fuel hatred, contempt and are often harboring bitter ex-employees, bitter competitors and clients with small issues that get made out like they are gigantic ones. Many forums take on a life of their own and get completely carried away with themselves. In my next month’s postings I shall give you an example of one and its many members and their ultimate goal of making me out to be a criminal and everything I do to be illegal or fraudulent. Why do people hide behind pseudonyms, host their forums in the States etc? Could it be because they are keyboard warriors with no substance behind their postings and nothing else better in their lives to actually do but post negative comments after negative comments? The internet is a powerful tool but can be a dangerous one and thankfully laws will eventually change and this type of freedom of slander will be a thing of the past. Hey I’m all for constructive criticism but not when it involves hatred and vile accusations with no firm evidence or concrete proof.


Open Letter Update October 2011

Mr MacAnthony,

Please have your lawyers contact the webmaster of this Support Group to arrange the transfer of 100 Million Dollars to those victims and your worries will all be over.  The reason for the cash is because it appears you don’t consider the Members Only Forum to be private from you or your paid spies, lawyers, directors or yourself.  It appear you have entered the forum in clear breach of the Forum Terms and Conditions.  If you don’t like the honest outbursts of your victims don’t open the door.

Could it be that you don’t like the truth?

Your failure to correct your blog about the pending criminal case in Marbella, claiming the case in Madrid to have been thrown out simply demonstrates the disliking of the truth and utter arrogance.

That posing was over a year ago and the MRISG await your exposé …….  It is worth also informing the reading public that not one of your threats of legal action for supposed Libel have gone to court and the MRISG members know the reason is that the last thing you need are hundreds of your victims lining up in the limelight outside the High Court in the Strand to give evidence against you and the press then splashing that news all over the world.  Thereby completely destroying you already tarnished image.

Money can buy you many things Darragh but not honesty.
