MacAnthony Lies or Truth?

Listen to Darragh MacAnthony pulling off the Bait & Switch to get another victim to transfer from Florida to Portugal where no building was ever built.  They didn’t even collect the approved planning permission.

If you understand this victim had already paid a large deposit to MRI for a villa in Florida and MacAnthony persuaded them to part with an additional €6,000 to reserve an apartment in a block in Portugal where MRI Construction were planning to build an apartment block themselves.  This block was scheduled to be completed in 2009 but to this day MRI Construction have not even picked up the building permit from the local planning offices.  Not one brick has been laid and the monies were not returned to the victim.

Straight Theft or Not?

Have you got similar damning evidence about MacAnthony and his crimes?  If so forward it to the MRISG so it too can be added to massive pool of evidence built against MRI and their web of companies.

Carter Ruck Gag MRI Victims Too

Even if you have completed on your property (despite the distress that these companies have put you through) tell your story - help to make sure that companies like MRI are not allowed to abuse the UK regulations through complex company set-ups in multiple countries.

How many of you assumed that MRI was a legitimate company registered in the UK?

John Stapleton

How many of you assumed that because John Stapleton (a respected UK Consumer journalist) fronted an MRI promotional dvd that MRI would be a honest, ethical company that you could trust?

How many of you were taken in by the professional website and 24/7 TV channel?

Don’t let them get away with it - tell your story - let the whole world know and stop this happening to others.

It is worth knowing that MacAnthony, through his ex-CEO , Dominic Pickering, has tried to keep the voice of his victims hidden from the media using any tactics they could legally use and some not so legal methods.  They have tried to flood the Search Engines with rubbish to push the MRISG website below the first page of all the search engines.  However, the fact you found this site shows they have consistently failed.  See some of the comical but ridiculous efforts MRISG have found  HERE.

Darragh MacAnthony - Free iPads?


Since May 2009 Darragh MacAnthony and his Co-Conspirators have tried using Carter-Ruck Solicitors and other very dubious means: Hacking, Spying, Industrial Espionage, Threats and Intimidation, false promises etc.. to have this website removed  to prevent the truth about his and his companies activities and hundreds of angry customers being seen by the world and his fans.

Evidently You Have Failed

MacAnthony and his, apparently no longer, CEO Dominic Pickering, have also tried to have history re-written to, presumably, cover their tracks and past activities.  From the well documented Timeshare Scams of Club La Costa where Darragh cut his teeth and was, apparently, very successful:  Happy days Darragh but apparently too embarrassing or compromising to mention in your personal blogs and bogus press releases we fear.  To his claimes of handing over his ‘€150,000,000 international Real Estate company with 25,000 satisfied customers‘, MacAnthony Realty International, to an 80 year old man in Peru and moving the Head Office to a condo in Madrid. To failing to file any company accounts since 2008 for most of his companies and even 2006 for his Luxembourg holding company. To now offering free iPads to school children, investors funds, money for school books, free sports days and scolarships.  Is their no shame in these men and their belief they are right and proper business men, astute investor, entrepreneur, business magnates and philanthropists. Hundreds of MRI victims in the Private MRISG Members Only Forum must all be liars, cheat and even mad then?

Read some of the drivel MacAnthony, known on the forum as MacLies and MacD to his POSH fans writes.


Makes you wonder what the tax man would have to say about all this high finance and slight of hand Darragh?

Dominic Pickering

Despite this blog publishing docuemtns about the Pineapple Fields Scam as recent as July 2011 Dominic Pickering also claims to have nothing to do with the MRI companies. Within the Forum even an exchange between Dominic Pickering and his biggest fan, Darragh MacAnthony, discuss the probably illegal folding of his last remaining Spanish company, MRI Construction, which is apparently now owned by this 80 year old Peruvian even though the sole share holder is believed to be Darragh MacAnthony through his Luxembourg company.  You can’t have it both ways Darragh, your Ex, Amanda Hudson, claimed half the company was hers but apparently not it was all yours and was a horrible mistake…..  The Daily Mail paid out to the Sue Ryder Trust over that one. But now you don’t want it. They even try to intimidate their own accountant because he doesn’t give them the advice they want he refuses to give them the written advice on how to fold a company which is not legally insolvent: doing it on plain paper only, presumably so he could never be held to account for the advice given.

Darragh no one wants anything to do with you any more now your scams are about to become international news!

MRISG Forum members do hope that Peterborugh Soccer Club survives the bad publicity to come.
