You are an idiot. I know the person from Greece and the SEC has frozen his accounts, he is in the process of paying approximately 1 million out of his own money because of Gane / Gent's scam. Gane and Gent were trying to take his money in order to keep their scam rolling in their favor. Thomas, if you think Gane is so great why don't you empty out your savings and give it to him and shut the fuck up.

I believe that the Gane's are good people. I've had the pleasure of knowing them for a while and I know Guy and his kids would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it. I think it is a tragedy that they have been accused of such a horrible thing. Knowing them, I know that they were taken in by a con artist (someone from Greece)and that they are now hoping that they can eat the following day. Tragedy.
Oh and by the way... the SEC doesn't care about making sure the investors get their money back, however, Guy has kept the doors open and has a staff that is working for free because they CARE about the customers and they are diligently working on getting them paid back.
Believe what you want, but I would bet my life to prove that they are stand up people. May God bless them and may they "stay the course".

You people are DIRT BAGS. And I am not talking about the Gane's.
There has been no conviction, no charges, nothing... just an eight month investigation.
You are not Judge and Jury.
Mr. Lorenzo, from what I hear, is half a retard anyway.

Don't you mean "psycho"

And everyone taken advantage of by this group should be willing to stand up and talk now that the Court has a new interest in this case.

anyone know when the court date is? Please post.

He's a buddy of Ian Gent...buddy of Guy Gane...Mr. Gent brought Chris Dillon and James Tetrault into Watermark...Well, James Tetrault was just arrested recently, you might have seen that in the paper..screwed people also...Dillon is a poop boy...does whatever he can to get money..He's supposedly still working for Guy and the Covenant...you should just go to the office, he's probably sitting there with Guy doing nothing. Pretending they did nothing wrong..

Thanks again...He always seemed smug and had a answer for everything. A real sociopath, and always played the victim. He will get his, along with the rest. What a wonderful role model for his 4 boys!! Big wheel no spokes...or morals.
Thanks again. One more thing...what's the address?

Only a pompous jerk (aka friend of Guy Gane) would make such a condescending comment. I delivered the pizza + wings, the Ganes took the food into the house & told me to wait, then told me they didn't have enough money to pay me. Huge house, 4 cars in the driveway, Jenna, Geoff & Guy wearing the latest clothes & Pam w/ a maid .....& they can't pay the lowly pizza boy. But, I still paid my tab when I cashed out that night, you see - my last name is not Gane. My father taught me that the most valuable thing a person will ever have is their reputation.
I still have mine.
Well said ! Good for you. Your Dad is a smart person. They say "The Acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

The money I invested with Lorenzo Altadonna was most of my life's savings in what was stated to be a secure and insured real estate development at 10% per year from 03/06 to 04/08.
I am currently a full-time caretaker for my father. I also work on a part-time basis for a church in Binghamton, NewYork. My income currently consists of the money I earn from the church and social security payments. The loss of this money has been devastating to me and my father. I had planned to use this money to help take care of my father and to pay for my own expenses during my retirement. I want the money due and justice served to the fullest extent of the law. 6 figures is too much money to forget about, it represents a life time of struggeling to save for this time in life!

Gane said that someone was going to invest $5,000,000 and backed out and that is why we couldn't get our money!! Now why in hell if it was not a Ponzi, did he depend on the 5 million and not have any to pay investors if it was not indeed all spent by just taking and spending our money as it was taken? I rest my case.
