Took money from me in April 2014 for a mutual investment in India with the promise of the earned interest of $5625 monthly being used to finances our household and living expenses. To date, interest was never received and my principal was never returned in spite of continued promises since August 2014.

By July 2014, he asked for an additional $2000 for website development and print media that was to be used for our business once he came to the States. He's produced no evidence of a published website nor sent me the print media that was supposedly printed shortly after I sent him the $2000.

He also watched as I indebted myself due to the purchase of an SUV followed by a a home lease agreement at a rate of $1400/monthly plus utilities. He encouraged me to turn down an overseas employment contract in Jan. of 2015 given we were to begin earning the interest income of $5625/monthly as of late Feb. 2015. This forced me to vacate the rental home 5 months after I moved in. I did not secure gainful employment until late July 2016 and was forced to move 900 miles from my home town for this position. In addition to a $20,000 auto loan, accumulated credit card debt totaled $9500 by September 2015.

To date, he has stated that the investment company could not wire my funds back to me. As a result, he supposedly attempted to wire the funds from Central Bank of India, Citibank of India, and HDFC Bank of India. He also sent me 3 checks from his HDFC account that were rejected as non-repatriable by Bank of Novia Scotia (located in Mumbai).

Since January 2016 he has been promising to wire the funds from Hang Sang Bank in Hong Kong. For the past 8 weeks I've heard repeated promises that the funds will arrive as two wires (totaling $24,000USD/each) over a two week period. To date, there has been nothing sent to me. The only thing I ever received from him were two separate Paypal transfers of $1000 each in the late summer/early fall of 2015.
