I believe she needs to get all her money from all her accounts and seized and be returned to the right ppl. Btw, i think she would most likely as a family member to hold her money so she wont have to pay anyone back and say that she doesn't have the money. If she doesn't have the money how is she affording all her fun wkends at the bars and go to trips and afford her lexus now. Honestly she is a scam artist who doesn't learn and needs to be put in jail.

I was wondering why she is still able to keep doing this. Why can't we just put her behind bars.

ALANNA STEINBERG AND PART TIME ACCOMPLICE GORDY STEFULIC

***WATCH OUT FOR THES FAST TALKING FRAUD ARTISTS***
This fraud artist works like this, she places ads on facebook /craigslist / kijiji and other internet classified resources, she pretends to have top notch contacts for unsecured credit cards, loans and other financial products, when she actually has zero, niente, nada, ZIPO! Plainly stated she is a dead beat fraudster who asks for an up front fee. She has an accomplice who according to the business card is a
Gordy A Stefulic OCT who I suspect is her partner/mother. They meet you at Starbucks ,singly or together, act all executive and professional and promise you the world and deliver nothing but hot air and empty lies and promises. Do Not get close to these animals, they are unworthy of your time. People including me have lost money. Alanna Steinberg is a fraud, plain and simple a dead beat liar, no brains to actually help people grow her business and be legit, just a lousy scammer screwing hard working people out of their money, but as the old saying goes what goes around comes around. The older partner is an unknown but a search turns up that she is the principal of Etobicoke Collegiate Institute. Seems genuine but the search information was rather disturbing in that financial irregularities was present in addition some student teacher boundary issues were present. Their MO is to ask for large upfront fees for financial fees that are never delivered.

GOOGLE HER NAME AND FIND OUT!!! IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED, CALL THE POLICE RIGHT AWAY

I have studied Psychology for 35 year and I find the taped interview very interesting when the papers were served to her with a reporter present.You can tell when a Sociopathic person is lying because of the inconsistencies in their statements which was evident on tape.They will threaten a person when they are questioned which occurred.They will act like the victim to turn things around which occurred on the tape.

In one source she calls herself on a dating profile " PURE,SIMPLE AND WITH DEPTH " The Sociopathic personality will tell you the things that they WANT YOU TO BELIEVE.They wear the mask of a sheep but are a wolf under that mask.Pure refers to innocent and honest but a sociopath is as pure as Satan,Simple means that they are not complex and have no secrets which is odd because thier whole life is complex and preditory and depth is the opposite of the shallow Sociopathic personality.

She also wants to meet a man that will travel with her around the world and shrug off his office responsibilities.Sociopaths are very irresponsible and this fits the profile.

Find her a JAIL CELL deep in the ground and leave her there for the maximum sentence ! These people have no concience for the victim's and they have the potential to be VERY DAGEROUS to society with a strong antisocial personality.

Why do people keep falling for scams like this...from the simple fact that there is a demand for money upfront should raise a Red Flag that things aren't on the up and up. Buyer BEWARE!!!!

If she wasn't wearing provocative clothes then she would NOT have been raped.Victim blaming is harmful because it feeds the minds of the Sociopath that blames the victim.Obviously these criminals victimize desperate people that are not educated.

YOU MAKE THE ASSUMPTION that everyone knows that upfront money is not legal.I studied Law for 2 years and worked for the Government for 26 years and I did not know this.What about people from other countries or other people that do not have a book of rules at home.Do you know all the laws na dregulations in Canada ? BULLSHIT you don't unless you are a lawyer.STOP victim blaming victims to support the criminal.She is a scum bag ...go after her for antisocial behavior.Why doesn't she get an honest job ??

I'm talking about victim blaming which is a hobbie for some people.That's how criminals think " IF HE WASN'T THERE AT NIGHT I WOULDN'T OF HAD TO ROB HIM " OR people should have known that it was a scam.Do you think desperate people put up 2 to 9 K because they KNEW it was a scam . THINK !!!

That's criminal mentality ! What she did to those people is criminal and WRONG and she is to blame.She needs to sit in jail for 18 years and pay the $ 450,000 fine for all of her counts.

I dated her in high school for over a year and she was scamming her own father out of money who is or was a very successful dentist in Newmarket. If she will do this to him imagine who else as for her mother i can see her helping her out with this even more so her own brother would be her perfect accompliace. good in bed great at scamming.

OH MY GOD,I can't believe this SOCIOPATH would con her own father ?? The problem is that after 26 years of studying these evil individuals I expected to see that she has a lifetime pattern of Sociopathic criminal behavior.

THANK YOU for coming forward with this information because I can forward it to the PAROLE BOARD.
