Ex Con Man Attempts Comeback as TV Scam Expert

Ex Fraudster Steve Comisar

Steve Comisar has scammed live studio audiences for years to teach fraud prevention.

Everyone you meet is your teacher or student. Most are both.”

— Steve Comisar

LOS ANGELES , CA, USA, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — February is fraud prevention awareness month and nobody knows fraud and scams better than Steve Comisar, a former con man and fraud prevention expert. You’ve probably seen him on The View or one of the dozens of other television talk shows and news magazine programs he appeared on pulling live scams on the studio audiences.

On The View Comisar got over one hundred audience members to hand over their credit cards. Not just their credit card numbers but their actual credit cards. After his powerful demonstration Comisar would give fraud prevention advice so they will never be a victim of fraud or scams again.

Comisar fooled national television audiences on nearly every top rated talk show in existence. He was also the on-camera fraud expert on Dateline NBC. Several of Comisar’s television appearances can be seen on his YouTube channel. But then Comisar went off to prison for fraud and all of that came to a screeching halt.

Comisar was released from prison in 2018 and since then nobody has asked him to be a guest on any television talk show or news magazine program. Comisar is also an actor who had appeared in many movies, television shows, and commercials since he was a teenager. That too seemed to have dried up after his release 5 years ago. Since February is fraud prevention awareness month Comisar is now on a mission to get back on the talk shows and help educate America on how to avoid being victimized by fraud and scams.

Comisar’s credentials are impressive. He authored the bestselling book, America’s Guide to Fraud Prevention. He starred in the CBS prime time television special, In the Mind of Con Artists, which was watched by ten million viewers and received high critical acclaim. He also starred in the award winning documentary, Making Crime Pay, which is now used to train law enforcement personnel.

Since fraud and scams are at an all time high, now is the perfect time for Comisar to get back on the television talk show circuit and continue doing what he does best. Educating society on how to avoid being victimized by fraud and scams.

Comisar says, “Yes I screwed up and went back to prison. But I’m willing to make up for that by going back on television and teaching people how to avoid fraud. My live demonstrations are the best way to teach people. So far I have helped educate millions of people and there’s no reason to stop now.”

Everyone loves a good redemption story and Steve Comisar is on his way to make amends for his wrongdoings. He is certainly the most qualified person to educate society on fraud prevention through his powerful live demonstrations on national television. And no better a time to do this than on fraud prevention awareness month.

Veripath Farmland Partners is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of 3,026 acres of Alberta farmland

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Veripath Farmland Partners (“Veripath”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 3,026 acres of farmland in Alberta. Veripath has entered into a binding agreement to close on February 14, 2023. This farmland will be added to the portfolio of farmland in the Veripath Farmland (UR) Fund.

This recent acquisition brings to total farmland acres within the Veripath portfolios to approximately 110,000 acres.

Veripath operates on the conviction that worldwide demand for the agricultural products used for food, feed, and fuel makes farmland an excellent long-term investment and that compelling valuation discounts are present in the Canadian market. In addition, Canadian farmland has demonstrated a strong historic capability of hedging both inflationary and stagflationary economic climates.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm focusing on farmland. Veripath believes that there are a number of factors that are supportive of the Canadian farmland investment premise, a few of which are highlighted below.

• Value: Canada has some of the most competitively priced farmland in the developed world – particularly on a productivity adjusted pricing basis.
• Diversification: Farmland exhibits low correlation to traditional stock/bond investments so can improve portfolio risk diversification.
• ESG: Western Canadian zero-till portfolios capture material amounts of carbon.
• Inflation Hedging: Farmland has historically had strong inflation/stagflation hedging capabilities and outperformed in real terms during periods of low real rates/high inflation.
• Demand: Farmland is a non-volatile way to capture the anticipated incremental demand coming from population growth and growing demands for food, feed, fuel and water globally.
• Veripath divides the Canadian market into two separate geographies of ~84M acres each in order to streamline and simplify farmland ownership regulatory compliance. Veripath Farmland (UR) LP invests in all of Canada (excluding SK and MB) and Veripath Farmland LP invests just in SK and MB. The two sister Funds have the same terms and fee structures.

Disclaimer: This document is for information only and is not intended to provide the basis of any credit or other evaluation, and does not constitute, nor should it be construed as, an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy securities of Veripath, the Funds or any other entity, nor shall any part of this document form the basis of, or be relied on in connection with, any contract or investment decision in relation to any securities.

FundingHope Named by The Silicon Review as One of the 30 Innovative Brands of 2023

FundingHope Named One of 30 Innovative Brands of 2023

FundingHope is revolutionizing how small businesses are raising capital

Dorian Dickinson, FundingHope, Managing Director

An innovative investment marketplace connecting investors with entrepreneurs contributing to sustainability in disadvantaged communities

We are very proud to be ranked as one of the Innovative Brands of 2023 by The Silicon Review.”

— Dorian Dickinson

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Silicon Review today recognized FundingHope one of the 30 Innovative Brands of 2023. The announcement comes as the company awaits final FINRA approval and membership and a regulated investment crowdfunding platform. Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) was signed into law as part of the JOBS Act of 2012. The JOBS Act was signed into law by President Obama in 2012, which allowed companies to acquire funding through online portals from non-accredited investors, which roughly accounts for 97 percent of the population in the United States. On May 16, 2016, Title III of the JOBS Act, also known as regulation crowdfunding, or equity crowdfunding, was the last section to be implemented by the SEC.

“We are very proud to be ranked as one of the Innovative Brands of 2023 by The Silicon Review. This is a great recognition of FundingHope’s commitment to revolutionizing how entrepreneurs, small business owners, and innovators working in distressed, at-risk, and rural communities raise capital, help achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets, and contribute to a safer, healthier, cleaner future in disadvantaged communities often left behind by traditional banks and Wall Street,” says Dorian Dickinson, FundingHope Managing Director and Chief Compliance Officer. “Delivering meaningful impact for small business owners in underserved markets who are committed to growing sustainable businesses and creating stronger communities begins with our team being fully committed to helping client businesses reach their full potential and attract the capital they need at rates that work for them and for impact investors. We enable this by driving new investors to the FundingHope platform, introducing them to opportunities they would not normally know about, and taking some of the crowdfunding heavy lifting off the backs of our small business owners who should be focused on running their business first.”

FundingHope and other investment crowdfunding platforms share similarities with reward based crowdfunding (think Kickstarter) in terms of how a company must spread their message to potential investors about their products in order to successfully raise enough funding. However, the main difference between FundingHope, rewards-based crowdfunding and donation-based crowdfunding (GoFundMe) is the investor’s end goal. Rewards-based fundraising is aimed at enticing investors based on the benefits they would receive in relation to the amount they contribute, donation-based crowdfunding is just that, a donation to a cause, and investment-based crowdfunding in a debt or equity investment in a business with the hope or expectation of a return.

CEO Devin Johnson of Kennected is Recognized as Trailblazing The Future of Leadership

Johnson’s leadership style reflects the current trend of collaborative and inclusive leadership models, which is necessary to build strong relationships with diverse teams.

In 2023 the future of leadership will involve more collaborative and inclusive styles and a focus on sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

At Kennected, our employees are our greatest asset, and I am privileged to lead them with a servant leadership style.”

— Devin Johnson

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Forbes reported thought leadership trends to expect this year; among them were analytical thought leadership and referencing content from other thought leaders. Considering the ever-changing business environment, the CEO must be ready to adjust and respond to the changes to remain competitive.

Providing exceptional leadership during a recession is a task that requires modernizing skillsets. Economic instability, fractures in financial markets, and internal team divisions are knocking at the surface of many CEOs’ office doors. Indianapolis tech company, Kennected, exemplifies leadership excellence when offsetting external pressures.

One trend to continue is the shift towards more collaborative and inclusive leadership styles. As companies become more global and diverse, leaders must be able to communicate, collaborate, and build strong relationships with a wide range of team members. This may require shifting from traditional hierarchical leadership models towards more democratic and participatory leadership styles.

Examining future leadership helps organizations and individuals anticipate and prepare for changes in the business environment. Organizations and individuals can develop the skills and strategies needed to succeed by understanding the trends and challenges to shape the future of leadership.

It can help leaders to serve their employees better. By understanding the changing needs and expectations of the workforce, leaders can ensure that they provide the support, resources, and opportunities their employees need to succeed.

CEO Devin Johnson has created a company culture that prioritizes the well-being and success of its employees. Servant leadership is one of the leadership styles that is gaining popularity in today’s business world, it is characterized by putting the needs of the team members first and working for their growth and development. However, it’s important to note that different organizations and leaders use many other leadership styles.

Autocratic leadership is where the leader makes all the decisions and has high control over the team. Transformational leadership is where the leader inspires and motivates their team to achieve a common goal. Laissez-faire leadership is where the leader takes a hands-off approach and allows the team to make their own decisions—democratic leadership is where the leader encourages participation and input from the team in decision-making.

Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Scott Schaefer of Zappos, and Jim Sinegal, cofounder of Costco, are other business leaders who demonstrate servant leadership. Ritz Carlton hotels are known for this leadership model and receive high employee engagement and customer satisfaction marks. As Kennected continues navigating the challenges of a remote, hybrid, and in-person workforce, Johnson has implemented strategies to ensure all employees feel supported and connected.

He has also made it a priority to promote company wellness, with programs and resources in place to support the mental and physical well-being of the Kennected team. Johnson has taken a proactive approach to addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the organization.

Kennected is collaborating with the Indianapolis Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (IHCC). This partnership is a testament to Kennected’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and reflects our company’s goal of building a more inclusive community.

As part of this collaboration, Kennected is working with the IHCC to develop and implement programs and initiatives that support the growth and development of the Hispanic business community in Indianapolis. This includes mentorship programs, networking events, and educational workshops designed to give business owners and entrepreneurs the resources and support they need to succeed.

As technology in the workplace expands and automation and artificial intelligence become more prevalent, leaders will need to be able to navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by these new technologies. They must understand and harness technology’s power while managing the risks and negative impacts.

“We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity within our organization and are always looking for ways to improve and grow as a company,” said public relations director Julie Lokun. “We are excited about this partnership and look forward to its positive impact on the Indianapolis community.”

By leveraging emotional intelligence, Kennected hopes to foster a culture of inclusivity and understanding within the organization and build strong relationships with the Indianapolis community. Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. It is a critical skill for leaders to possess, enabling them to communicate, collaborate, and build strong relationships with their team members.

Leaders with high emotional intelligence can empathize with their team members, understand their perspectives and emotions, and respond in a supportive and understanding way. This helps to create a positive and productive work environment where team members feel valued and respected.

Emotionally intelligent leaders can also manage their emotions in a way that does not impact the team. They can remain calm and composed under pressure, which helps to create a sense of stability and security for their team members.

Emotionally intelligent leaders can build trust and rapport with their team members, which is essential for effective communication, collaboration, and achieving common goals. They can understand the emotional needs of their team members and respond to them in a supportive and understanding way.

Johnson is committed to team coaching, working with his team to develop and grow their skills and abilities. Kennected can build a strong, resilient team that is well-equipped to meet future challenges through this approach.

“At Kennected, our employees are our greatest asset, and I am privileged to lead them with a servant leadership style,” said Johnson. “I am committed to ensuring that our team has the support and resources they need to succeed personally and professionally.”

Examining future leadership highlights the role of leaders in shaping the future of their organizations and the broader business community. Leaders have the power to create a positive impact and contribute to the well-being of their employees, their organizations, and society. Future leadership impacts the success and sustainability of organizations and the well-being of individuals and society.

Land Banking for Real Estate Investors

Land Banking for Real Estate Investors

OXNARD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Land Banking. Without a doubt, Land Banking is the most exciting real estate investment strategy. Land Banking is the practice of buying raw undeveloped land in the path of growth. The land must meet certain growth criteria because the criteria is the pivotal difference between a speculative land purchase and a replicable successful land investment. Most importantly, there must be a major development clearly identified within three miles of the land you’re acquiring (“Anchor”). It is called an anchor because that major development acts as an “anchor” to future development surrounding that major development. This is crucial because land banking near anchors significantly reduces hold periods and provides greater profits. If this type of investing excites you, don’t miss VCREIA’s February meeting (February 8, 2023), because the number #1 authority on Land Banking will be speaking.

Special Guest Speaker. VCREIA’s guest speaker will be Christopher Meza, the leading authority on Land Banking and pre-development real estate. He is a nationally recognized speaker and best-selling author. Chris was recently the keynote speaker with Steve Forbes (Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine), at the “Success in the New Economy” conference. Christopher has been interviewed on ABC, NBC, CBS, and several FOX affiliates across the country. The point to consider is that the most people only invest in developed real estate (i.e. condos, homes, apartment buildings, hotels, shopping centers, etc.). But good judgment reveals that to make greater profits with less risk, investors have to be doing something that the masses are not doing, and land banking is that strategy. Christopher will be the special guest at VCREIA’s February meeting. The title of Christopher’s presentation is “How to Find and Develop Pre-Development Real Estate for Land Banking.” RSVP now!

Date & Time: Wednesday night, February 8, 2023, 6:30 to 9:30 pm.

Location. River Ridge Country Club, 2401 W. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036.

Parking: Free parking in front of main clubhouse.

FREE Admission: Admission to VCREIA meetings is always FREE (complimentary), but reservations are recommended.

Buying Bentleys With Bitcoin

There is more transparency and faster transaction finality with the Bitcoin network than the legacy banking options available.”

— Mike Soroudi, COO of DAIM

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, USA, January 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Times may be tough for crypto but adoption and use cases are still growing. One area that has benefited from this alternative form of payment is luxury car dealers. Two companies at the forefront of these deals are Marino Performance Motors out of West Palm Beach, Florida and Digital Asset Investment Management (DAIM) a digital asset advisory firm headquartered in Newport Beach, CA.

Marino Sales & Finance Manager Gil Courchene says that interest in using crypto for these types of purchases is actually up. “I’ve seen that more and more people are using Bitcoin when they want to purchase a luxury vehicle. The transactions seem to go much smoother because there is no bank inquiring what a customer is using their money for.” For companies not willing to hold cryptocurrency there are intermediaries who specialize in these transactions. The dealership coordinates all Bitcoin transactions with DAIM, which offers crypto advisory and management services.

DAIM COO Mike Soroudi thinks it is important luxury retailers become comfortable transacting in cryptocurrency. “People see crypto as this confusing blackbox where transactions are flying around anonymously. Once the client sends a transaction, we tell them and the vendor to go on a block explorer and view the transaction in real time. Retailers can match the transaction ID, addresses, and amount and begin to understand the legitimacy and clarity of the system. At 3 confirmations they know the process is complete. In actuality there is more transparency and faster transaction finality with the Bitcoin network than the legacy banking options available.”

DAIM sees this as a small step toward more efficient and open payment processing as well as improved treasury management. Soroudi continued, “We can get the transaction completed fairly quickly. Usually the vendor will receive the cash back within the hour. Interestingly, as companies complete more and more transactions we see them wanting less and less cash back. They are becoming more comfortable with the idea of converting only the portion needed for immediate liquidity needs and keeping the rest in Digital Assets. Bitcoin is an excellent store of value over the long term, and given where we are in the halving cycle those who can stomach the volatility will see added benefits if they can hold on.”

Bitcoin and Digital Assets are slowly becoming a way of life. People with large positions in cryptocurrencies are not just looking to drastically increase their net worth. They want to be present and participate in the ecosystem. That means ditching the banking system in many cases. Using cryptocurrency as a secure and efficient medium of exchange for luxury items is gaining steam and it could be a matter of time before buying cars, boats, and houses with Bitcoin becomes the norm.
