    This is classic gas-lighting. It is a form of mental abuse in which information is twisted or spun, selectively omitted to favor the abuser, or false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity. Typically it is found in abusive domestic relationships, but can be applied to any type of relationship, like a business one in order to scam the other person.

    As you experienced, the person will present information, sometimes so outlandish it seems nutty they would make it up, but the most important part, is they will stick to their lies and are extremely confident in them being truth. Even when pointed out as false, they will continue to stick to them, eventually causing you to reach the point where you doubt yourself. If they're so confident in the lie, maybe you're the wrong one?

    Glad to see you're taking it well, and it does happen to a lot of people. So you aren't alone. Hopefully in the future, if someone tries this again, you'll have learned from this and be able to spot it quick. :)

    OP I took a long time to join bhw for the very reason you point out, I thought it was full of scammers. I have learned that despite the joking about, leg pulling etc their is a general shared value, that we will happily game the system while keeping the end product legit so that no one is being ripped off (there are always exceptions to the rule, but those are individual's)

    Don't feel stupid we have all been there to a greater or lesser degree that's why these vultures still operate, and that's why the majority of us don't like it.

    My advice would be to learn how to do something on your own, while building relationships, even then still remain cautious, I have turned down JV opps that went on to do quite well. I prefer working on my own.

    I know it's pretty grim just now but you will get there.

    Good on you... I hope you never ever trust someone again when it comes to money.
    I have been scammed numerous times in the past and trusted people again and again. A recent mid 6 digit scam hopefully also lets me change my mindset not to trust anyone again when it comes to money.

    Wow that was right on point, he really was abusing us mentally and I never witnessed anything like that before. Just glad that nightmare is over and I can move on with my life. He really wanted me to lie for him on here and he was calling my wife non stop that day, He wanted to tell her that he will give me my 5k back If I lie for him on here but I decided NOT to trust him(Best choice I made with GG ever) and let him expose himself completely even if it meant that I would never recover my money. When you have MORALS and VALUES you will tell the truth even if its not in your best interest, clearly GG has neither.

    I am glad you did that, you didn't just think of yourself but all the others that might be scammed by him later on. Big props to you! :)

    GG has nice cars, nice house yet wants to scam me for 5k that I worked hard for, I'm pretty sure now that he has been scamming folks for a long time. I don't know how he survived here for so long but it feels good knowing that I stopped him from potentially scamming more people, at least on BHW. If anybody that got scammed by GG and want to file lawsuit, skype websitebldr.

    I have to ask.. why the hell would you EVER trust someone on a 35% per month return?

    Come on. Use some common sense.

    Ever heard of a Ponzi scheme? etc? Highly illegal.

    Honesty and loyalty are rarest of rare things in this world..
    if you are honest n genuine, people will rip you off , but since i m firm believer of karma (every action has equal n opposite reaction).i would just say keep on moving...he might have robbed your money but noone on this earth can rip of ur desire to get more..
    i don't even know you, but i can feel what u might be going through...its sad thou but u have been honest n it should come back to u
    .my prayers are with you..i hope, you get 10 times more than what you lost here..
    god bless u

    Thank you so much man I love good people, I'm celebrating with my wife right now to nice dinner and I'm glad I can put this behind me in 2015. We are in 2016 and I don't want to think about nothing but success, the guy above this post i trusted him because he gained my trust over the years. I personally gave him buddy passes to fly around including his grandmas death. I looked out for him like a neighbor and I will never regret that. I only regret forking over my hard earned money to someone that doesn't care about my well being. I really want to work with genuine people like rabbit king, that's the definition of a real man. My wife was in school and I was working 12 hrs a day 6 days a week and I feel great plus great exercise. I still need to make more income to support this growing family. (Having a baby in 8 months) so I really need to focus and I need the support from you guys at bhw. Happy New Years!

    He he was scamming me from day 1, he made me deposit money into llc account so I can't sue him directly and he was using fake names, and I found out he has over 20 plus felonies and is a hardcore criminal it's unreal how he survived on here to me. I just need to learn methods to make my money back now that's what I told my wife. It's midnight and I'm working overtime till 3am do I'll check back later. Thanks for the concern.

    You should also report him to the FBI, SEC, etc. Even if nothing is done immediately they will make a record of him, which can be used against him in the future.
