In late 2006, Jim Frazier solicited the victim regarding what Jim Frazier referred to as an incredible investment opportunity in an oil well project located in New Mexico. At the time the victim had been looking for a secure investment to assist with paying for tuition for his two children who were attending college.

Jim Frazier delivered and investment prospectus and supporting geological survey documentation on a particular project he referred to as the “Chavaroo Oil Field” in New Mexico. Over the course of the next several weeks he contacted the victim numerous times by way of phone, fax, email and U.S. Postal Service.

Jim Frazier enticed the victim by promising that there was NO way to lose, as the investment was “full proof”. Jim Frazier assured that leases of the Chaveroo site secured the investment and that the leases value far exceeded the amount of the investment.

The pitch and the prospectus indicated that the investment was divided into “Units” and that each “Unit” had an actual value of $70,000.00. In fact in follow-up correspondence Jim Frazier indicated that each Unit had an actual value of $76,227.00. However, Jim Frazier purported that in order to raise the necessary operating capitol for the bountiful Chavaroo oil field the Units were being offered at a reduced rate of $37,500 each.

Further, Jim Frazier Guaranteed the units were to produce a return of $1,000.00 per month each. Jim Frazier called this investment scheme “OPPJV” (Orbit Petroleum, Partnership Joint Venture). The investigation into this matter has uncovered an important piece to the puzzle in relationship to the value of the “Units” that Jim Frazier represented to the victim.

In February of 2008, a “RICO” lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court in the Central District of California. The complaint surrounds this very same scam that Jim Frazier and his Co-Conspirators played on a separate group of people. The “Complaint” alleges that between April 2006 and July 2006, Jim Frazier was instrumental in the inducement of 16 different victim for a total of $2,288,000.00 (Two million two hundred and eighty eight thousand U.S. Dollars)

In this situation Jim Frazier and company pitched that there existed 100 “Units” in the Orbit OPPJV each having a value of $100,000.00. Ultimately Jim Frazier and his cronies induced these victims into buying a total of 26 “Units” at a price of $88,000.00 each. As in the case with our victim the Federal Court record indicates that the money was converted and stolen, leaving the victims with nothing.

In December of 2006, Jim Frazier had finally convinced the case subject victim that this scam was legitimate and he wired Jim Frazier $187,500 which amounted to his children’s entire college fund. In exchange for this investment the victim was to receive 5 units and immediately begin receiving $5,000.00 a month in returns, but none ever came to fruition.

The Share Price of Orbit Petroleum as of January 2009 was $.07 a share.

By July of 2007, Orbit Petroleum entered into bankruptcy proceedings in New Mexico. Further, at about the same time Jim Frazier sold the Chaveroo oil field Leases that supposedly secured the victim(s) investment to Ridgeway Petroleum, who subsequently changed their name or “EOR” (Enhanced Oil Recovery), for a measly $600,000.00 which amounts to about 6% of the value that Jim Frazier had stated in writing.

Investigation has shown that Jim Frazier has left a path of financial destruction for numerous individuals and companies. A source at Tipton Oil advised that they had originally had been hired by Jim Frazier to operate the Chavaroo field however Jim Frazier made no real attempt to make the Chavaroo site a legitimate operation and that his claims of the potential production were nothing more than embellishments to entice unsuspecting victims. Tipton also said that Chavaroo had been all but pumped dry and more or less shutdown for lack of production.

Further, the Tipton source stated Jim Frazier defrauded their company out of literally millions of dollars. They also say that once Jim Frazier had begun the bankruptcy in New Mexico, he began selling off assets of Orbit in violation of Federal Bankruptcy Law.

Tipton has filed Lawsuits against Jim Frazier who has been represented in court by a John Green an attorney who works for another oil company called, Pyramid Petroleum.

Pyramid has since hired Jim Frazier as their Cheif Financial Officer.

Tipton oil sources speculate that Pyramid may have become involved with Jim Frazier in order to place themselves in a position to absorb some of Jim Frazier or Orbit’s ill-gotten assets. All attempts to contact Jim Frazier, Orbit Petroleum, Mike Myers (current president of Orbit) and Pyramid have been ignored by all.

David Earl Roper

Scam Alert David Earl Roper
(Alleged accomplices: Paul & Larry Roper, Michael Adams)

DBA: Signature Industries, Inc. (a defunct Wyoming company)

(Operates out of Dallas County Texas)
David Earl Roper will steal your money. In this case he defrauded $40,000.00 from an elderly WWII Veteran. David Earl Roper will promise incredible returns on oil well investments, pocket your money & you will never hear from him again.

Offense Summary:

The Victim, Mr. Williams a senior citizen and a resident of the state of California, advises that he was victimized by a subject identified as David Roper, DBA; Signature Industries, Inc. at the time operating in Irving, Texas. Mr. Williams alleges that Roper did in fact knowingly Steal and/or by deceptive means defraud him in the amount of $40,000.00 (forty Thousand U.S. Dollars).

On or about the first week of December 2006, Mr. Williams received a phone call from a man who identified himself as David Roper. Roper stated that he was the Vice President of a company out of Texas called Signature Industries, Inc. Roper talked/enticed Mr. Williams into mailing him a check for $25,000 as an investment in a highly productive oil well project he was working on. Roper promised monthly updates on Williams’s investment and that the investment was fool proof with excellent returns.

When no updates were given, Williams over several months attempted to contact Roper who gave excuses and avoided his phone calls. Finally in July of 2007, Roper called Williams and advised that the oil wells he had first invested in weren’t producing. But, he had other wells that were highly productive and with a larger investment Roper would switch the investment to the new wells. He talked Williams into mailing him another check for $15,000.

A short time after he had taken the victim’s money for a second time, all of Roper’s phone numbers were disconnected. Williams then realized he had been a victim of fraud and that Roper had stolen his money.

Investigation has determined that Roper has been involved in this type of “business” for several years. He has been partnered up with Larry and Paul Roper who are believed to be his brothers and Mike Adams an old high school buddy.

Roper’s company Signature industries, was originally opened by a subject by the name of John Harris. According to Wyoming officials this company became defunct in May of 2006 more than six months prior to Roper soliciting and inducing the elderly victim in this case. Roper has operated several companies in the greater Dallas area: Roper Adams Marketing Group, David Roper and Associates to name a couple.

Roper has utilized websites (www.signatureindustries.net– now deleted) to promote his fraudulent activities and references other legitimate oil companies such as Venture Oil and Gas, Rockland Oil, JP Exploration and Gordon H. Johnson as references.

At the time of this incident, David Roper was conducting his nefarious business operations at an office building located at 4322 North Beltline Road Suite# 212-B Irving Texas. A source at the management office for that building advised that Roper and his associates moved out of the building owing in excess of $25,000.00 in delinquent rent. They also indicated that the Texas SEC had served them with a warrant for the records of the tenants at that time.

FRAUD ALERT has learned from Dallas County Court Records that David E. Roper 01/27/74 has arrest records on file. One such record reflects a charge of Theft involving bank checks.

A source at the Secretary of State’s office indicated that as of March 2008 Roper was using a POB of 202613 Arlington Texas and a physical address of 6018 Brenhaven Rd. also in Arlington.

A source at Global Advocates (globaladvocates.ch)  advises that they were asked by Mr. Williams in March of 2008 to investigate and advocate as his behalf. Further, GA advises that since April 2008, Roper has promised time and time again to make good on the $40,000.00 by way of a Forced Loan payment program. However, continues to stall by introducing as many as three different attorneys into the picture apparently to stall and delay finalizing a re-payment agreement.

Roper has indicated time and time again that he was selling legitimate oil wells to the victim. However, he refuses to produce any sort of documentation to support the legitimacy of what he sold Mr. Williams.

Bottom line WARNING to the public, BEWARE of David Earl Roper. This man will attempt to induce you into oil well investments and it appears to be nothing more than a SCAM! Roper will take your money laughing all the way to the bank, leaving you broke as he did the senior citizen in this case.

Darrel Robinson & Michael G. Windes

Darrel Robinson

Darrel Robinson

Darrel Robinson & Michael G. Windes
(Accomplice Cindi Denton)

DBA: Business Equities of America & QCN Corp.

Will steal your money. In this case they stole $150,000.00
They will promise you huge lines of credit if you pay them Extraordinary “Credit Assistance” fees.

Business Equities or Business Equities of America

This is Their Scam Company Business Equities of America.

Here’s the summary of the case.

In July 2007, the victims Mr. Johnson and a Mr. Pleasant from the state of Georgia see an ad in a magazine reference private financing programs for real estate investment/development projects. Johnson responds to the ad and is told by a Mr. Darrell Robinson, President of Business Equities of America (pictured herein) that he can deliver money for large projects without credit or collateral being an issue. Business Equities of America has numerous addresses listed on the Internet. The one they used in this scam is 2222 Michelson Drive Irvine California. Their phone number is 951.603.0031. Darrel Robinson’s accomplice has been identified as Cindi Denton.

In Mr. Johnson’s case Mr. Darrel Robinson agreed to obtain a $3,000,000.00 (Three Million Dollar) line of credit. The “Line of Credit” was contingent on Mr. Johnson paying Darrel Robinson $50,000.00 as a “Credit Limit Assistance Fee”. Further the contract states that the $50,000.00 is “fully refundable at your request if you do not receive sufficient funding…within 30 days”. This is a LIE!!!!

Mr. Pleasant, who is an acquaintance of Mr. Johnson, also makes contact with Darrel Robinson. Darrel Robinson subsequently contracts with Mr. Pleasant to acquire a $5,000,000.00 (Five Million Dollar) line of credit for a real estate project he is working on. Darrell Robinson is able to extract $100,000.00 “Funding assistance fee” from Mr. Pleasant.

As of today, June 10th 2008 Darrel Robinson and Business Equities of America have failed to produce any lines of credit. And even after nearly a year of requesting and demanding the return of the “Credit Assistance Fees” Darrel Robinson has failed to pay one dime of the money back. Click here to view his website.

Darrel Robinson (Robinson uses various aka’s: such as Derrall, Darrel and Derrel) – AKA – Derrall Robinson, AKA – Darrel Robinson, AKA – Derrel Robinson… has made numerous promises to return the money in full to the Victims in this matter. The latest Promise was that he would return the money by March 1st 2008. When this day came and went Darrel Robinson advised that he had hired an attorney to edit a contractual agreement between the parties to allow him to return the money in payments, basically amounting to what the legal industry calls a “Forced Loan” upon the victims.

International Fraud Alert spoke with an official at the Global Advocates (globaladvocates.ch), who advised that they had been brought into the matter to examine the issue from a criminal perspective and to possibly mediate the situation to resolution.

GA advised that they had been placed in contact with a man by the name of Michael C.

Michael Byane

Michael Bynane

Bynane who claimed to be acting as Darrel Robinson’s attorney out of Houston Texas. The intent of Mr. Bynane (pictured below) being introduced to the matter was to assist with the finalization of a repayment contract. After nearly, two months of promises to bring the matter to resolution, absolutely nothing was accomplished other than what amounted to nothing by “stall tactics” by Darrel Robinson through his attorney Bynane.

IFA has concluded by information gathered from various sources that Darrel Robinson has never had the ability or resources to acquire loans for anyone. In fact it is our belief that the whole process is nothing more than a scam to entice and induce unsuspecting victims into being defrauded out of their hard earned money.

An investigation is ongoing and requests for criminal charges are being filed with the appropriate State and Federal authorities. Anyone who has been victimized by these conmen, please contact us and come forward!
In one such case a gentleman by the name of Ty Couglin was involved and ripped off by Windes. Mr. Couglin was taken for $15,000.00 himself. Windes did the same thing with this victim, promised to return his money and never did.

Further we have learned that Darrel Robinson is not the only suspect in this matter. Further information uncovered by IFA shows that another subject by the name of Michael Windes who operates QCN Corp. appears to be an associate or even an accomplice of Darrel Robinson. IFA has uncovered information that alleges that Windes has been pulling the same type of SCAM operation for years. In fact in the matter described above Windes even promised to return the stolen money to the victims himself of course this never came to fruition.

Bottom line WARNING to the public, BEWARE of Michael Windes and Darrel Robinson. These men will claim to be able to assist you in acquiring large sums of money/lines of credit and it is a scam they will take your money laughing all the way to the bank, leaving you broke.

If you have any information that will assist in the arrest and conviction of these criminals send us an email. Also please report your case to your local, state and federal authorities. Help us put stop to these scam artists from damaging anyone else!!

PLEASE – If you have ANY information which can assist us in the capture and/or re-payment to the victims of the $150,000.00 dollars(or are yourself a victim already!)
