REPORT N1 (added on May, 27, 2016)
Laura (USA)

Mr Friedburg fraudulently convinced me to invest in a sports betting group that he claimed to be part of. In return for 2.5% of his total bankroll, I would get 2.5% of the bets, winnings and losses. I would be paid out on March 1, May 1 and June 30, with the option of ending the contract on July 1 and getting all of my money returned 14 days later. This started on January 11, 2016. To date I have not received any money. I also wired him money through Walmart. I have a picture of the receipt. I have a signed contract, texts and a spreadsheet documenting all of this. There is no sports betting group is what I have learned in the last 2 weeks. I am out a lot of money. I know of at least 4 other women that are victims as well.
