Guardian International Travel Court

If you are a victim of Guardian International Travel or any of the following - GIT Asia, GIT Resources, Z-Resources, Z-Power Pac, GIT Cruise Inc., Multiple One Inc., Multiple One Entertainment Inc., please read the following message regarding:
United States vs Swainson Hawke and William Hume - case 2007R00871

Attorney General Conway Announces Indictments of Two in International Ponzi Scheme
Press Release Date:
Tuesday, July 05, 2011

Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the indictment of two men in connection with an international ponzi scheme that defrauded thousands of victims. The indictment naming Swainson Hawke, also known as Ronald D. Scheetz of Macon, Georgia, and William A. Humes of Elizabethtown, Ky. was unsealed in the United States District Court in Louisville, Ky. on Friday, July 1, 2011. The case was investigated by the Attorney General's Office of Consumer Protection in cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by the office of the United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky.

According to the indictment, Hawke and Humes deceived thousands of investors by promising inflated returns on their investments. The two are accused of defrauding victims by assuring them that they were purchasing discount cards connected to the hospitality industry with promises of returns varying from 300 to 500 percent to be paid out in installments. Hawke and Humes also offered and paid significant "commissions" to participants in return for recruiting new participants into the scheme.

A "Ponzi" scheme is a fraudulent arrangement in which investors or participants are attracted by the lure of exorbitant profits. The operators of the scheme maintain and promote the bogus concept by making payments of seemingly large profits to early investors from monies obtained from later investors rather than from actual investment returns. The very nature of the scheme dictates that it must eventually fail when the schemers are no longer able to find new victims.
If convicted the Defendants could be sentenced to 40 years in prison, $500,000 fine and forfeiture of all property obtained as a result of the violations.

A status hearing is scheduled for January 09, 2012 at 1:30pm - Court House 601 West Broadway, Louisville, Kentucky. The defendants are charged with using their business to run an illegal pyramid and ponzi scheme.

United States vs Swainson Hawke and William Hume - Case #2007R00871 Docket #11-CR-00072

If you believe you are a victim of any of the above businesses contact the US Department of Justice, US Attorney, Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Kentucky to see if are listed in the system or ask for the information to file a claim to be put on the list.

Even though Swainson Hawke and William Hume are the only two individuals mentioned, there will be others soon who will go down the same road. You know who you are.

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

A jury trial is scheduled to begin on November 5th.

The indictment of a person by a Grand Jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

With that said, and I will say it for the tenth time again, "If you have not sent in your Victims Impact Statement - take a few minutes and tell your story". This is not just monetary information, it is also in regards to the emotional impact and toll it has taken on your family.

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

Have you filed or contacted the Justice Department of Kentucky ? Step up to the plate. Don't let these thieves keep you down.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/kyw/comm...insonHawke.pdf

A jury trial is scheduled to begin on November 5th.

I would like to see the court room filled to compacity with GIT members. The same GIT group Swainson Hawke and William Hume stole from and continually lied to. We have our own PONZI... Even when these two individuals realized the falling apart and the demise of this operation, they continued to rake in dollars to live the life they were accustomed to. Knowing full well that it would never be returned. I think the word for that is STEALING.

Do you remember the words Hawke said "you will all have a Merry Christmas 2007" ??? I would like to be the first to say "What goes around comes around - how you treat others will come back kick you right square in the teeth. Karma will RETURN to you with a vengence.

Just one more reminder GIT people - there will be many more taking the same walk as Hawke and Hume, these two are just the top 's showing the way. FILE YOUR PAPER WORK and we will see them all in front of the judge, it is just a matter of TIME !!!

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

How many members contacted GIT with phone calls, e-mail or postal service and asked for their money back ? Did you? I did !!! If you did – please step up to the plate and contact the State of Kentucky Department of Justice.

Even after the GIT dogs knew they where in trouble, they were still collecting monies with totally no intention of returning the money. They were living off of our hard earned money, while some of US (you and me) were in the midst of losing everything.

It will be just a matter of time before they get every “stinkin” one of those dirty dogs that were involved with the decision making, or those who just sat by waiting to see what the next move would be or what lie was conjured up to tell the members why checks are not being mailed. That is everyone from William Hume and Swainson Hawke down to the bottom decision maker. You know who you are – someday you will be in the same shoes.
November can’t some soon enough for me. More names will come out. Fingers will be pointed. You really don’t think William Hume and Swainson Hawke are going to take the full blame. DO YOU ???

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

All right what is it going to take to get you to notify the State of Kentucky ? If you are holding back to see what happens in November - nothing if you don't help your self. Make that call to Kentucky - put your name in and tells others to do the same. There are thousands of us to make a stand with the same story on how they scammed each and everyone of us. Now it is our turn to make Hawke and Hume sell everything from their elite homes, cars, electronics to the the last pair of socks they have on their feet. And then we squeeze some more. Don't be a - once and for all justice needs to be served to all of these scum bags. Swainson Hawke and William Hume are JUST THE BEGINNING. Lets go get 'em !!!

Rumor has it that Swainson Hawke is trying to get out of this ponzi with little or no payment back to victims. It was once rumored that pay back could be as high as 30 cents on the dollar and now it has dropped drastically... It is also rumored that Hawke has asked for no jail time... Hummm !!! Who gets to run this show the judge and jury or Swainson Hawke. Hopefully soon all of you who have sent your information to Kentucky will get notices with all of the WHO's, Where's, What's and How's.

Everytime I drive by a St Jude sign to donate, I would like to punch Swainson right in that big snoozola of his. Those of us who contributed to the St Jude foundation should feel a double kick in the ass, because you know that money has never been turned over to the foundation.

November 5th is coming fast. Check back SOON.

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

November 5th is just around the corner - GET YOUR PAPERWORK IN ASAP !!! After the smoke clears you can sit back and watch heads roll or roll down hill as the saying goes...

These two dudes have played everyone long enough - time for pay backs. Remember when Hawke said that everyone would have a MERRY CHRISTMAS - send him a card this year.

There will be more court dates and more S#&t to hit the fan. You don't really think Swainson Hawke and William Hume are the only ones going down, DO YOU ???

OK, so there is a delay - , but on the bright side, maybe Kentucky is gathering more information and more people to go down, down, down....

Check back often - I will keep you posted.

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

I'm back... Well November 5th has come and gone. And I am NOT sending Hawke any good wishes. 2012 will go out with Hawke and Hume on the back burner for now. However, I do beleive that Kentucky is working and building a case like no other that has ever been seen. January will be here soon roaring like a lion. Time to round these dirty bastards up and put them in the clink. Then we can all send them Christmas cards for a Merry Christmas --- it will be interesting to see what happens in the next few weeks. Keep your notices on to watch this site for updates.

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

There are a lot stinkin rotten people pulling off these scams. Remember people - do some research - do your homework. Whether it be a name of a business or the names of the people involved (your sponsor) - check it out. My sponsor is one of the biggest thieves yet. And has been doing this for many, many years. Check out all involved from the person wanting you to become involved to the person answering the phone on the other end of the deal. Guardian International Travel was listed with the BBB as a positive company. Well we all know the snakes behind this scheme. There is going to be alot of finger pointing when Hawke gets back to court. I put my Christmas card in the mail to Swainson Hawke - did YOU? If not, that's okay we will say it together - MERRY ------- CHRISTMAS TO YOU, HAWKE.

HINT - I do know of at least two more. Anyone out there willing to take a guess? Pull up an easy chair, kick back - put you feet up, grab a bubbly of choice and ENJOY

Re: Guardian International Travel Court

More delays, this time it is because ---A telephonic conference took place on January 25, 2013, to discuss defense counsel’s motion for a continuance in the trial involving defendants Swainson Hawke and William Humes. Defense counsel has requested a continuance in the case due to Mr. Hawke’s current medical condition which prevents him from being able to travel to Kentucky in order to attend the trail. The Court has granted the motion and the trial scheduled for February 11, 2013 has been remanded from the court’s docket. A telephonic conference is scheduled for April 8, 2013 to discuss the status of Mr. Hawke’s medical condition and to determine whether or not a jury trial can be scheduled at that point.


What will it be next time ?
