What a grand fraudulent mess and tragic loss of investors money. It would make for a good book or movie with all the thuggy bits, cowering in the bushes, the fraudster gets defrauded by the better scam artist, etc. I’m glad no one was physically harmed though. My husband and I traveled to Chile & visited Galts Gulch but were not impressed & very suspicious of the entire project from the moment we stepped into the jeep that smelt like wet dirty llamas. Not going to impress many people with $500k to invest. 1st red flag. No one living there or homes being built or infrastructure. 2nd red flag. No farm except an orchard of fruit trees being sold for a few dollars a bushel with many rotting on the ground. Saw no one picking any fruit. 3rd red flag. Met Chilean dude who originally owned the land but I always suspected no titles were legit. 4th red flag. Wasted a day of my vacation but did come home with a tshirt & hat to remind me…..don’t fall for dumbass Ponzi schemes.
