It is not your money, you gave it to Pearlman and he donated it.

The Jews have suffered much more than you have and if he gave it to the Temple you should be happy that the money is going to a good cause.

Shame on you for trying to steal the Temple's money

BOY-BANDER RIPPED US OFF, KIN SAY
By DAN MANGAN
The NY Post
February 28, 2007 -- The massive Ponzi scheme allegedly run by boy-band impresario Lou Pearlman left some of his own relatives and their spouses "ruined financially," one of them told The Post.
"I'll never be able to make that kind of money again," said Leda Nevler, who, with her disabled husband, Jordan - Pearlman's third cousin - recently discovered that the nearly $200,000 in life savings they had placed in the Queens na tive's care was missing.

"I just feel so violated," said Nevler, 62, an Illinois resident. "We all looked up to him, we all trusted him."

The Nevlers and several other Pearlman cous ins are among 75 people suing the former Backstreet Boys manager in a Florida federal court, claiming they were swindled out of investments.

"It shows that he would steal from anybody," said James Lowy, their lawyer.

Pearlman allegedly squandered up to $317 million given him by about 1,400 people, many in the New York area.

To the Investors in Lou’s scam
Thank You
I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of so many people who are not thanking you
Thank you from Lou Pearlman who has lived a life of a billionaire at your expense
Thank you from the bands like Back Street and NSYNC and others who are stars funded and started at your expense
Thank you from the employees of Lou’s companies whose salaries you have been paying all this time (they are not that grateful and wish you had all kept your mouths shut so they could keep their jobs)
Thank you from the receivers who will be picking the bones clean and taking whatever is left of the money
Thank you from the attorneys like Lowey who gets to be on TV and in the press and will make a name for himself suing the governor. You may recover a few pennies, but he will make his reputation on your suffering.
Thank you from vultures like Helen Huntley and Les Henderson who will make a reputation on your continued suffering. Helen may win a Pulitzer and Les may sell a few more books. Both are desperate to make a name for themselves from your pain. Les wakes up every morning giddy that he may become relevant because you have suffered.

This has nothing to do with the Jewish people's suffering or plight, it has to do with Pearlman stealing peoples money. Now that the truth is out about where Pearlman aquired his wealth, There has to be some shame about taking the money.

As an ex employee, I can speak on behalf of a lot of people in saying that we were not aware that Lou was scamming people. It's not like he went around with a sign on his back telling everyone he was a fraud. True, there were people that were aware inside the company, but that was only a small percent. It sickens me to think where my paycheck came from. Unfortunately, Lou had a lot of victims other than the investors. There are a lot of innocent people who lost their jobs. It's nice to see the empire starting to crumble. It's some satisfaction, at least.

Gunner Nelson=one-half of 80's (?) boy band called "Nelson", right?

You had a couple of hits ("Can't Live Without Your Love" and "Love And Affection"), did a couple of tours, and then something happened. You were silent for a few years and then decided to team up with Lou Pearlman (and others on Lou's team) to make a "come-back"....just like Kenny Rogers and KC & The Sunshine Band....among others in your same boat. Inspite of everything, very little has happened with Pearlman at the helm of your music career. Do you and your brother ever wonder WHY?

While I respect the musicianship, musicology, and legacy and have always been disappointed that you two (Nelson) decided to team with Pearlman for a second chance; I just wanted you two to know that...I DO understand. You two deserve better. And you are right that the people who robbed of their life savings (among other things....like dignity) should also sue the remaining associates who worked closely with Pearlman over the years.

On the flip-side, I say ground them all. Request that the judges strip Pearlman and his associates of their licenses....any and all business, drivers', PILOTING, fishing, hunting, etc....SUSPEND THEM ALL NOW; effective immediately. It can be done, and it will get someone's attention, fast. Very fast.

And yes, you better believe that these so-called "lawyers" know very well where Pearlman is. There IS such a thing as GPS on cell phones, in cars, ON PLANES!!! Hello. Major hint here.

There is absolutely no sense in BS-ing those of us who know what's really going down.
