Jason Laramee - One Sick Puppy! Fraud, Lies, Corruption

KEEP BRINGING YOUR KNOWN FACTS TO LIGHT.  BE SURE TO STATE ANY FACTS YOU KNOW AS TO WHY JASON, RENATA, AND ANY OF THEIR ASSOCIATES ARE GUILTY.  AFTER ALL, THIS BLOG IS MEANT TO HELP VICTIMS IN ANYWAY POSSIBLE.  I NOW FEEL THAT NO MATTER HOW DIRECT THE COMMENTS ARE, THEY EXIST FOR A REASON.  THE BEST PART IS, THIS IS NOT 222 TIPS OR THE POLICE.  THIS IS OUR OPEN FORUM TO STATE HOW WE FEEL, EXPRESSING OUR FREEDOM RIGHTLY.

You may be alive in the physical sense, but it truly is the feelings that the people in this world have for others which creates their existence.  You are someone that now has no surroundings and no substance to go forward in our world.  We banish you! You can now rot in your mind prison state.

I guess you thought it was money that was going to bring you wealth of existence.  The view into your mind has no wealth, and you are an individual that cowardly preys on people who want to get further in this world.  I guess the saying "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't" stands here.

I wonder what you are thinking right now as you sit in front of your computer with your Tim Hortons coffee and nobody but yourself to talk to?

This is a forum that is meant to bring stories out about people like Jason Laramee.  There is no moderation to the posts and I encourage you to let us know your thoughts on Jason Laramee.

We have a new request to show the Global News video regarding this.  Here it is!

Dear Jason Laramee (Steele),

I am a very close friend of someone that you have been associated with over the last few years. i just wanted to let you know that you have ruined the life of my friend...one of the most honest, trusting, hard working and selfless individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My friend has been crippled financially, professionally and worst of all emotionally as a direct result of their interaction with you. You have done this for nothing more than your own personal gain and some twisted search for status!

Up until a couple of months ago I had only read about and seen movies about people like you - a person who would knowingly and deliberately use anyone and everyone around them no matter what the cost for their own purposes.

I truly hope that one day you actually understand the misery you have created in this world. On top of the many lives ruined of families that trusted you, there are numerous honest professionals that trusted you with their careers and livelihoods. These peoples' names, reputations and careers have been irreparably tarnished. Shame on you!

Never in my life have I ever wished ill will upon another individual, however you have no soul and you deserve more than you will probably ever get. May you rot alone in a dark cell somewhere forever!

How sad. How many lives has this guy ruined in order to have more material possessions? His mansion in Burlington wasn't enough so he upgraded to a more upscale home on the Lakeshore in Oakville. A $3.7 million cottage as well? The courts need to make an example of him. I don't wish ill will on anyone, but he needs live up to his actions.

Dear Jason Laramee,

I too have fallen victim to your horrid mentality.

You have taken away my ability to feed my family, and although only temporary, you have made me second guess the way I should view people in my life. I feel as though trust is no longer something for me to hold. I second-guess my actions now, and have zero faith in my perception of people. I as well hope that you rot in a prison somewhere forever!!!!

Anonymous said...

I feel terribly sorry for the victims...I did prison time in the U.S.A. with this asshole...in truth, I did not think of him as one back then...thought him to be a solid guy...he was reserved and did not cause trouble nor was he looking for it on the inside. We were convicted on similar charges but different cases...I vowed never again to hurt innocents and I've kept to my vow...evidently prison time was not enough to change his mindset.

Truthfully, I am somewhat envious that he was able to gain the favour and trust of people, something hard to do once you have spent some time in prison...however, I am also really shocked and totally pissed that he would not seize the moment and try with all his effort to rally the trust he developed with his investors and build an organization into a mighty and honest business that had the potential to make people's lives better...guess he did not have it in him...reality is that its easier to steal than to work for it.

I can assume with pretty high certainty that he planned it all from the inside...I asked him what he would do upon his release and he would not reveal it to me...said "this one will be kept close to my vest"...after my release, I ran into him years later and I knew he was up to no good...he avoided me like the plague...I did not take offense but I had a strong feeling what he was up to...

I knew some people who were just beginning to get involved with him and his "new" business affairs and tried to give them fair warning...but it landed on deaf ears...by no way do I stick my nose into other people's affairs without an invitation, but I had some acquaintance/relationships with some of these unsuspecting fools and did not want to see them get hurt.

They believed his bullshit...I knew better...he had way too much flash and was growing way too fast...too many promises of unobtainable rates of return and I do know how the con works from my own personal experience in sophisticated white collar crime.

We used to say that people would rather believe a lie, because it sounds better than the truth...so that's what we used to do...dress it up and make it sound too good to be untrue...and people still fall over themselves to follow a line of bullshit rather than listen to reason and proceed with caution...

In finality, i'm not saying that all persons promising returns on investment are hustlers, but those who make unrealistic claims of guaranteed returns should be better investigated...always remember that numbers do not lie and if anyone reading this blog of mine does consider an investment in the future with reference to mortgage investing or some type of secured investment paying a dividend, do your research...ask for evidence of past successes, which should be documented, if they were claims of past results...understand the market before investing and by all means do not hand over a penny of your money secured only by a Promissory Note...

One last comment to all the victims...fight this one collectively...get over the personal loss and shame and you will be a stronger force together...draw your resources and hire investigators...the stolen money is out there...most likely in Canadian real estate in his family/siblings/parents names or other close relations names or held in Trust...a simple visit to your local Land Titles branch will evidence any land under his or his wife's ownership...as for cash, it either in bags under his mattress and probably also in offshore accounts, most likely Panama, the Caymans, the Turks & Caicos or Bermuda...there will be bank statements/wire transfer confirmations/bank draft receipts in his possession...if he hasn't declared personal bankruptcy, go to small claims court and make his life a living hell...

Better luck in the future to all those who have suffered loss.

Yes it was all really just a Ponzi scheme and the perpetrator, Jason Laramee Steele (or whatever is his real name), is a skillful and heartless con artist.

Why didn’t FSCO (Financial Services Commission of Ontario) and RECO (Real Estate Council of Ontario) do a RCMP background check on this guy before granting him his licenses? Shouldn’t it be a requirement before becoming a mortgage broker or real estate broker not to be a felon convicted of fraud?

Quit being so hard on the investors. Jason Laramee did have the required licenses, offices and appeared legit. He wasn’t a stranger in town working out of his suitcase knocking on doors and asking for money. Who would have thought to do a background check on your boss, a respected businessman, a family man?

It is not unusual for private investors in syndicated mortgages to get paid 12 - 14% interest and are secured as second or third mortgages against actual property. The investors were just naive and trusting. They should have asked to view the register of mortgages or asked that their name be on title. They should have been advised that they need independent legal counsel before investing.

These victims were part of a long process of grooming by the perpetrator. A con artist is similar to a pedophile. They gain your trust and then steal your money and innocence. His last victims are the most tragic. Little did they know that Jason Laramee has the mind of a serial killer. No empathy for his last victims, the most vulnerable. No remorse for destroying their lives.

My heart goes out to all those trusting souls who helped keep Jason's Ponzi scheme afloat in the last few months. They had the most to lose and they lost it all. I couldn't imagine facing retirement penniless after a working so hard all of my life. How do you start all over at that age?

I am confident that because The Toronto Star has brought attention to this matter, the RCMP and CRA will conduct a thorough investigation and trace where all the money is hidden and hopefully give it back to the investors.

Once convicted of all his crimes, Jason Laramee truly deserves serious jail time. Lock him up and throw away the key!

Anonymous said...

He was a licensed mortgage agent and not a broker. There was another person who acted as Broker of Record for the company and if they were doing their job should have known what was happening. He also was not a licensed real estate salesperson or broker as that is not a requirement to own a real estate brokerage in Ontario (if you can believe it).

Anonymous said...

Obviously he knew how to get through all the loopholes, change his legal name, and fly under the radar of RECO despite having a criminal conviction for fraud in the United States for his involvement in a $52 million fake gem stone telemarketing scheme.

Right you are, the money is somewhere and should be found we have the technology. I sincerily hope that those investors get all of the money back, only then this heartless person will get a taste of his own medicine.

One word for Jason "Karma".............

He just looks like a douche bag!

His poor wife and kids....His wife I'm sure loved the lifestyle they HAD! I knew his wife personally in school and was a gold digger...she sure didn't dig that great! LOL! This is too funny and well deserved!

Anonymous said...

Not really sure how its 'well deserved' when so many people lost their life saving. Its well deserved to get caught but not what happened to these victims or his family. You can't blame the wife and kids for something they weren't involved with. Also, I'm not really sure how any of this is "funny". These are people's lives. You clearly are slightly ignorant yourself.

Hi Anonymous April 10, 2012 08:44 AM,

I think you are missing the point in the person's post you replied to. I think they are stating that a place for people to vent about this guy is well deserved. It may not be funny, but it is clearly deserved for victims and citizens to be able to say something.

Anonymous said...

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones... I purchased a property listed with Brekland Realty and the deal was closed on January 31st two days before their registration was suspended. Jason's actions not only affected investors and people associated with him and his companies, he has affected my broker and who knows how many others that worked hard to completed the sales and has not received their commissions.
People like him has no place in this society, I hope he gets a lengthy sentence so he won't hurt more people in the future.

This blog is about revealing what Jason Laramee Steele is really about! His wife, Renata Schumaker should be ashamed! I don't believe she knew nothing about this ponzi scheme. My understanding is that some assets bought by Jason were put in his wife's name to protect them from creditors. Maybe some of the money is in her bank account somewhere too! Both Jason and Renata seem like selfish gold diggers and they deserve everything that is coming back to them. Yes, Karma is a btch.

Anonymous said...

Renata was living a good life - funded by her beloved husband Scumbag - aka as Jason Laramee. Jason knew exactly what he was doing taking money from unsuspecting investors days before his apparent suicide..... reality is he knew what he was doing ... these investors were introduced to Jason as people who obtained mortgages for personal or investment properties thru him and his team (I will reserve my comments on this)... but as for Jason, Renata they will pay - directly or indirectly. KARMA is a Bitch!!!!

Three lessons to never forget when investing your money

1) Never acceot a prommissory note as collateral for your investment
2) If the individual completes all aspects of the transaction administration,investing etc
3) Great returns anything over 10% annually....the carrot is to invest with them once you receive all your funds plus interest we have a tendency to re-invest thinking it's safe then they have you

Side note if he was a licenced mortgage agent and he was completing these mortgage transactions he will have EOE insurance

I have great sympathy for those affected by Jason Laramee.... having been a victim of the Rae Cowan fraud 5 years ago, I understand the impact and the devastation this kind of betrayal has on the lives of the victims. The betrayal of trust in particular is paralyzing, we are robbed of the very foundation of human decency which is taken away and as many have commented changes people and they never feel the same again. I hope there is justice here and money lost can be recovered, my "jason laramee" exited this world instead of facing what he had done... Some made the victims out to be the bad guys.... don't let this happen to you, it is not your fault. You must move forward, band together as a group and not let this guy get away with what he has done. We were lucky but had to fight to get our money back and we did but it cost us in other ways. The impact of fraud never leaves you but the best revenge is to pick up the pieces and live well. Fight for what is yours, fight for what is right and my hope is that this guy pays for the devastation he has caused.

Anonymous said...

I just read about the Rae Cowan fraud and it strikes me that someone could something like that to their own family members. I think it is telling of the conviction that many people have to generating wealth to show signs of success. I was reading about the successes of his father and perhaps there was a need to generate more wealth than he had. It all starts with innocence, but somewhere along the line the need to maintain the lifestyle in an easy manner outweighs the notion of building loyalty and success in the long run.

My wife and I have read most of the comments on Jason Laramee. We were invested with him since 2005 and he gained our trust for over 7 years. And now he has destroyed our lives. We have a wonderful son and daughter that have been giving us everything from money,groceries,gas for our vehicles and as much to even pay for some of our house bills. I
am now looking for a full time job just to make ends meet. For those people that commented on us,I would just like to thank you all. I retired in 2010 and was so excited to do things with my wife,son and daughter and three lovely grand children. Know we only leave the house
either to get groceries or look for a job. There are no words that I can say about this
coward of a man that anyone would understand. When we asked for all our money back he kept stalling. Then when I talked to him for the last time about our money he replied by saying,
" We Had A Good Run " didn't we Larry! I am personally having a difficult time dealing with
this. Without my wife and family I don't think that I could make it. It is very important
that most or all people effected by this low life post your comments. I'm sure that most
of you read about us in the Saturday Star. My wife and I would like to thank all of you for
your support and also The Star news paper.

Its deserving to the scammers not the victims! I'm pretty sure his wife Renata was very much involved. She always seem to get caught up with these "type" of men in the past. I do hope the victims will get a pay back somehow.

I knew both Schumaker as well as Laramee. I know Schumaker to be an incredibly dominant controlling spouse and find it very difficult to believe she knew nothing of the goings on in ALL aspects. I hope they collect ALL THE MANY past nannies to testify in court on what they witnessed during their stays with that family. Also staff that left prior to the downfall of their illegally built empire. Strange how a mere "housewife/homemaker" was so much involved with staff mistreatment and character assassinations. Both of the accused tried to convince myself as well as my spouse to invest.. we knew immediately the ROI was questionable and called this outcome years ago. I hope in court the truth comes out…As far as Schumaker is concerned.. enough was NEVER enough… she always demanded bigger and better. Im my opinion, neither one is better than the other…. they are both equally void of conscious.

Anonymous said...

This time it is Renata Schumaker, Renata Laramee, Ren Laramee and finally Renata Dawn. She has many names, she changes them like she changes her underwear. She's the mastermind, puppet master behind all of this! Jason couldn't breath or move without her dictating how to do it and when. She knew he was a convict in the past and she used it to her advantage to gain wealth! She is evil, manipulative, conniving, and disturbed. The author above my post said it perfectly; She was never satisfied, it was never enough! She knew exactly what was going on because she controlled everything! House wife/homemaker? She was neither those titles! What a laugh!!

She groomed Mark Rao, knowing he had the bank connections. She knew his mother as loving and kind, that way they could use her to do everything they asked. As for Larry, what an outstanding person! Kind hearted, would give the shirt off his back for you a salt of the earth human being.


I fought the Laramee's with litigation and came out victorious! I have said it from day one that this was a Ponzi scheme!

So glad they have fallen from their throne! Now the both of them are laughing stocks. Pathetic demonic people!

She better get jail time along with her piece of trash husband! Oakville's Bonny & Clyde.

An open letter to the Laramee's,

You can bring some sort of salvation to yourselves right now by giving back the money to the Stevens family. We are giving you 1 week from today to gather the money and give it back to them, or you leave us no choice but to organize as a group, disturbing your every move. Most crimes can be forgiven, especially monetary crimes, as your impact on that family is replaceable. But, you must be the ones to replace it, and you should act fast to do so, so that you can salvage some sort of credibility. You can at least help the ones you hurt the most, immediately, starting with them.

Do you have the courage to stand up for yourself and put the money together?

I can vouch for that...she was always materialistic in the past and now. She only dated guys that had money and could take care of her. Her last fiance bought her a BMW! There is no way in hell that she didn't know of her husband scams. Its what got her the house, the Hummer, the cottage and everything she currently owns or had. I feel really bad for their 2 kids. They were named after their so called empire! You can call her The Real Housewives of Oakville...LOL! Renata/Ren you've got it coming to you, so sad...NOT!

It is high time that we stand together and fight "white collar crime". Who can we trust anymore? Banks? Financial Advisors ?????? and in my case advisor/family friend.... You have to be so careful these days, it is such a shame.... They get a taste of the good life and then feel entitled to it at the expense of others... Laramee should be stripped of everything, his life should be disturbed, he should be made to make restitution... It is not like this was accidental, bad investments, market crash.... it was cooly calculated with no thought for the devastation it would cause... I will never understand how someone can steal one's life savings and simply say "we had a good run"..... it's just evil...

Jason and Renata could care less about their children. The kids were props for the scam. Renata was never a mother, she had nannies raise the kids and clean the house. Renata was so lazy that getting out of bed tired her out. How does Karma fell Renata??? Karma is a bitch and so are you!!!

Renata, All of the good people you devastated with your rumours and lies prior to any of this can finally feel some sense of relief knowing your character (or lack there of) is finally having a light shone upon it. So many stories of your hurtful actions are coming out and people are comparing similar sad cases. You should be ashamed.. on so many levels.

Based on all the comments about Renata's character (or lack thereof)...it's probably safe to say she'll come out of all this unscathed with zero remorse with a bunch of hidden loot somewhere.
How nice.

I am only a minor loser in this scam but agree with all the comments, i was approached to invest with a 12% return and my very bright wife reminded me of American Greed Scams, I just lost commissions as one of the reps working for his company, Brekland. My true sorrow for those hard working people who lost a big part of their lives!!! Hope the whole Laramee family is sent to Somalia for the rest of their lives.

Rae Cowan's story,

More Money than He knew what to do with:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/article723691.ece

Don't forget about Mike Holoday story either. Unlike Rae Cowan who felt so guilty about losing his clients money with bad trading decisions that he chose to commit suicide, Mike Holoday is out of jail and thinks he did nothing wrong.

Read Greed and Glory on Bay St:

http://www.bylo.org/news/holoday.html

Life After the Big Swindle:

http://www.bylo.org/news/fp17feb07.holoday.parole.htm

You can't trust an investment advisor just because they work for a large bank or institution either! Bay Street broker Mike Holoday, who worked at Midland Walwyn and later First Marathon Securities, falsified client account statements and took money from their accounts to pay others. He managed to swindle his clients out of an estimated $20 million. Free Rider, a book written by JL Reynolds describes how Holoday, a charming and suave common thief, sweet-talked investors ranging from a retired schoolteacher to one of the richest men in Canada into trusting him with their money. His victims included his ex-wife's mother, his brother-in-law and best man. In 2001, he was sentanced to 8 years in prison and ordered to pay $6 million restitution to his victims. He paid back $4 million. Still no remorse and apparently continues to live beyond his means.

I was approached to get involved in this scam. Thankfully did not. Hearing about the "amazing, guaranteed returns" I was suspicious about what was really going on and tried to point out the risks to one family before they "invested" more money. It seemed to me that the victims' fatal flaw was not so much greed as desperate pride. Desperate for more than just financial returns. Desperate for dignity. It's a tough lesson to learn. I so regret that I did not have the ability, nor take more time, to convince these people to get out of this, if they even could do so, at that time. Things might be different for them today.

I'm sorry...what is happening here...are any of you thinking about the Laramee's children...? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan and I don't even know who Renatta is. But, please do not start stalking their home, MY GOD, those poor kids, you will only terrify them and that is NOT OK. Please stop and think about what you're doing. You are NOT teaching anyone a lesson - they will only call the police (and rightly so; I would too if people were scaring my kids). Please, please step back and think first.

I agree that it would be wrong to go to their home. Use the judicial system to exhaustively pursue every avenue of recourse.

I was not affected by this but do know who he is and have known others like him.

If he had done this to me, I would employ calculated diligence to set out a cunning plan to pursue him doggedly by tracing every documented record of his assets and activities.

Keep your pride, keep your digniity and don't give up.

Well said and I agree... there are no winners in this scenario and I feel so badly for their children, they are the true innocents in all of this... In my case my advisor & family friend checked out of this world so add that to the mix... not an easy one... With no help or support from the family with our files or information, we joined a group and fought our own battle, thank god we kept our records. I concur with the above comments whole heartdly... be diligent, pursue every avenue, every document you can find. Obviously, he knows how to buy time in jail but he must be made to pay restitution to his victims even if it takes him the rest of his life to do so.....

If this had happened to Renata.. I can assure you.. she would be relentless in destroying whomever was involved.. however.. I agree.. stalking them and making a scene will only make the involved look bad. Let this course run. Im certain they have been told to stop all spending. Its after all the chaos and hype ware down that they should be under a watchful eye. He only knows how to be a criminal and she , if she hasn't already began planing, will always search out a very gracious lifestyle.

Despite the fact that their parents are obviously evil, they somehow produced lovely children. I can't stop thinking about them and how they will be negatively affected by this horrible situation. They are innocent and will also be paying for their parents stupidity and greed for a long time
. It is a horrible situation. I hope someone in their life (maybe grandparents) can give them the childhood they deserve.

Jason Laramee used to frequent the bank branches in Milton looking for mortgage business and "bank declines". One of the bank managers in town used to try to push his services on us. I wonder if he ever got caught up in all of this. It would look good on him. I'm sure there are more people involved in this than just Jason and his wife. Just saying.

Let me guess who this is you dumb bitch, alway jealous of renata cause u r a fat ugly bitch. As if she knew, she was a devoted mother and wife who was innocent in all of this. She has the kindest heart and respect for people who are human unlike yourself. So many stay at home moms do not manage their finances and would never imagine something like this happening. For you to roll your mouth is so expected. If I ever saw u in public I would spit in your face. Ha to see your ugly puffy face right now u horrible bitch. I hope your daughter turns out like you!

Wow! Well...I went to Streetsville Highschool with Jason Laramee. I knew him well then and knew him well up until a few years ago. I always had the 'gut' instinct that he wasn't right or wasn't to be trusted, including Renata who is a priceless piece of work! Boy...could I tell everyone some truth about the two of them!!!
I KNEW something big like this would happen.
I knew about his 'Gem' scam back in the day which led him to the Federal Pen in Pennsylvannia. I believe he did 20 months in time? And, the earlier comment about the person who did time with him in Prison...well...whom ever wrote that spoke the truth. Good for you.
Renata knew everything. She was the master puppeteer!
Oh my goodness...I am so sorry for all of the victims but I am soooooo happy he has now been found out and will be dealt with, hopefully. He needs to be brought to justice and so does Renata. They do have money off shore. They do have properties in other people's names. They do have it.

He stole ours and other clients money and never invested it. We insisted on a safe low risk investment and were assured of this and were given fabricated statements and stories. All the while he continued to live the good life. There is much more to this story than what you have read... and I believe that we will never know the whole story, he has taken that with him.....

Just read the one person who is defending Renata.... Same foul mouth as Renata.... Classy.
As for properties.... Jason and Renata told many they owned hundreds of acres in Flamborough, Ancaster and the housewife herself even bought a property on her old street to flip.... It sat unfinished for over 5yrs.... Still not completed from what I've been told. The only real crime will them being able to rebuild after this with hidden stollen money.

To Larry and Cindy,

I would like to help you continue the momentum in you getting your money back. We need to make your story known, and not simply just a one-hit wonder in The Star. Would you be willing to do an interview that we would showcase online? It would be important to help warm others while also keeping your story at the forefront.

Let us know, as you clearly have a team of support behind you...

To the person above, thanks for that information! I'm unable to locate the news cast online. Are you able to post the news segment on this blog?

Here's some interesting information for all the Renata & Jason haters. Renata Dawn has surfaced on Facebook with her profile posted as a Texan proverb stating; When you throw dirt, you loose ground. Is she for real? Still trying to affect people with her blame shifting bullshit! Renata, you have no business pointing the finger at anyone but yourself and your piece of shit husband! Can you say extreme NARCISSIST!! I guess with her posting a Texan proverb she must of gone from gold digger to oil digger. You heartless witch....your payback is in full effect!

Thank you KARMA GODS!

I too was told of the property owned in Flamborough as Jason spoke to me personally about it and how he got it for a steel!! How ironic!!! Apparently there's a river that runs thru his property as he told me how big trout (steelhead) were in it in the spring time!!

My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost money in this unfortunate situation.
I was the target of a similar situation once, with a news piece that implied things that were ultimately untrue. Jason Laramee aside, as there are clearly some serious issues there. But we have to be careful with tarring innocent people with the same brush.
I saw the Global TV piece and this other person seems to have been a victim too.

Renata had a business too which she claimed to be the owner of on LinkedIn ... It has been removed since this all surfaced.. I'm assuming to look like the housewife she claims to be.... Breqlin (sp) Hera Developments.... Named after her daughter. Don't know if that was just so she could tell people that she owned a company or if she actually purchased properties through that... No idea but hope it helps. She also told myself about the "hundreds of acres" in Flamborough.. Said Jason wanted to build their retirement Estate there.

The person who seems to be defending Renata is misguided. When the majority of the posts are factual and most people on this blog personally know this witch we are NOT painting anyone with the same brush. This story is real, money is missing, real estate company shut down by authorities, declaring bankruptcy same day as the shut down. We know first hand and we have been waiting for this day for along time. Justice for the innocent is the modus operandi!

I dont think the 7:51pm poster was speaking of that witch renata. I believe they were referring to the guy damian in the link. From what most people are saying, his family and friends lost money too and he has been a fall guy for that cockroach laramee and his pet pig

Anonymous said...

Yes...I was told that she bought this property too. But it was just "an investment"!.

Renata was using Jason!. She is a deviant and was 110% involved because due to her on-going (hands on) dealings with potential clients, even after some investors expressed their concern to her!. She was a lazy "homemaker", because a home she did not make and a mom??- she loved her kids but her main goal in life was to get rich by any means possible and throw parties to shove her stolen wealth in others faces!!. In addition, she was trying to bed her old booty call from her late teens up to around two years back when he told her to back off!- was obsessed and got angry with me and many others when we would not give her info on him!
She's a dirty, tacky person!...who needed to get a surgery to gain confidence!. Renata has no substance-maybe full of shit and is an empty person who would never be satisfied no matter what she had!

Been a victim to? I have talked to a couple of the victims and found out that he has been friends with Jason since they where in high school, and knew he had been in jail before. How he was allowed to have a mortgage license? That never should of happened. I believe, from what i understand is that Jason worked for his mortgage company as it was actually registered to him. I am pretty sure that he over looked the fact that from what i have been told, letting FSCO know that he has been in prison before.

I do not know Renatta, but it sounds like people who did know her, didn't like her...but to throw all of this on her back is a bit naive. Jason was a grown man who did this on his own to people. Whether she was or wasn't a gold digger means nothing in the scheme of this situation. Jason was evil WAY before he married her as the news says they married in 2005 and he was jailed in the states before that.

And, it sound like the guy in the video his "partner" lost money too yet he's being pulled into this.

JASON is the evil here.

Renata's mother - Shirley remarrried to a man (last name is Salisbury), don't know his first name. However, I know they moved to Chicago. She has a step sister name Kristen. Growing up, she had 'daddy issues'. Always looking for someone to look after her, buy her things etc....She did use people and her friends. Don't be fooled she also had enemies then and now. She was once engaged to a really nice man in her time. He was honest hard working man and had his own furniture business and she got a BMW from that relationship. As soon as she got the car she cheated and dumped him!
Alot of people I know are laughing at her (and her husband)now as we thought she was so lucky to have this wealth and celebrity like lifesytle. I can't wait to see the outcome of all this....She is a user, she is fake all around and uses her so called sweet face, petite frame and fake boobs to look all 'innocent'.
I wouldn't be surprised if she sleeps with the lawyer to get her way...LOL!
ROT IN HELL RENATA SCREWMAKER (SCHUMAKER)! You will not get away with this...and watch who you talk to...don't trust everyone! You should know..

It's definitely Renata! So typical....Can't wait to sit in the courtroom and watch her posture back in forth with trying to keep all her lies together! How about a polygraph? Just remember there are people gathering evidence against you like; emails, bbm's and voice mail. So good luck with that! How are you going to disparage the proof against you? Hopefully people will start posting these elements soon. Gotta get the Global news segment up on this blog!

I think the above is key here…. nobody suddenly turned on Renata… so many sat back for years and years and listened to the newest hate on for someone, listened as she destroyed (or tried to ) reputations of others with fabricated lies, not sure how these things made her feel good inside, especially with such a "kind heart". Listened to how terrible pre school staff was, then Private preschools, then private schools in general… how many schools has she actually pulled her son in and out of as it was always a horrible teachers fault, and she made sure she left with scathing emails or notes on how she felt, horrific nanny accusations, at least one "tried to poison them", another tried to quit and she was in turn accused of child porn, the ones that were fired prior to that, the numerous arguments she had with shop keepers, garbage men, gardeners, painters, pool companies, and lets not forget the numerous "friends" she ripped apart, one by one. She bad mouthed her own husband so many times and dished WAY too much dirt on him to sit back now and claim to be this naive, innocent victim… its so laughable its sad. These posts are brought on from what it seems to be a long, long trail of hurt and upset this "woman" has caused to obviously so many. I don't know what happened to turn some so vengeful and filled with hate, but I pray to god I never come across another like her. She might not have worked at the companies under scrutiny, but she kept it no secret that she held the "keys" and oversaw the goings on. There are pictures, many pictures of "Ren" in her signature pose giving the camera the finger…. its the irony of how she lived her life… saying "f" you to the world and god help anyone that stood in her way.

WOW, Can I hug the person who wrote that!! Find a picture of Renata with her finger to the world and post it for all to see.

My God....any chance Renata is insane? if all these posts are true...she's off her rocker. Nanny's poisoning her? Nanny's involved in child porn? Arguments with everybody? She's a loon if true....or she's just a tiny bundle of furious nastiness. A great catch for some lucky guy.

As a past Broker at Monster, I too was forced to litigate against Laramee as he blatantly tried to screw me as well wanted access to the trust accounts that I would never give him. LISTEN TO THIS!! His wife (RENATA is it?)also had called my wife,at home, at work and during the law suit accusing me of sleeping with our office manager (once a good friend of Renata's but she got Jason to fire her), doing cocaine in the backroom and other things. These people only care about their next Range Rover or million dollar home that they steal using other peoples money. SHE IS AS GUILTY AS HE HIS. The sad thing is the two kids that are just 5 and about 9 years old. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!! Maybe the nanny could take care of them but Im sure the investors cant afford her anymore. As for the recruiter for Brekland her nose was so far up this guy and basically thought he was a god and was glad when Jason screwed me. Im sure she had some say in it so I dont have much pitty for her at all. I do feel bad for the Stevens'.Thank god I saw this a long time ago. Didnt know the depth of it but WOW. The guy (Laramee) gets caught once before and still continues to defraud people. REAL ESTATE ENTREPRENEUR....LMAO.....WHAT A JOKE! Which brings me to another of his wifes comments to my wife about me "Why are you with such a loser? You can do better. My husband is the greatest business man (scam) on earth." YAH YOU KNOW WHO THIS IS AND I NEVER BACKED DOWN FROM YOU TWO ASSHOLES AND NEVER WILL. FUCK YOU.

Anonymous said...

Always hated that name Brekland Realty. They (actually Renata) wanted to name it Breqlyn Realty after her daughter. Jason at one time said thats the name and I make the final decision. I basically told him to go @#$% himself and stop listening to his wife. SO DONT TELL ME SHE DIDNT KNOW AND WASNT INVOLVED!!!! IDIOTS

WHY….. what good did making these things up do? Upset homes, caused questions, rocked marriages… for what? Don't know how she got away this long without defamation lawsuits.

The house that was bought with stolen money on Crofton Way in Renatas name was mysteriously sold in February of this year for about $200,000 less than what they paid for it. Also the Robinson Street location where RBL was was also sold for less than what they paid for it on the same day and is back on the market for $799,000 (also in Renatas name). I have told the lawyers. DEAL OR NO DEAL! NOT INVOLVED OR INVOLVED!

Lets really try and leave the poor kids out of it. They are the same ages as mine.

I sure hope I was the one who got RECO going on this. I had called them in early January advising that I believe serious wrong doings are occuring at RBL. Although RBL was the mortgage company and not the real estate company I told them, as an agent, that a client of mine had invested with him and is suing him to get his money back. Something is wrong and he also owns a real estate company I knew VERY VERY WELL!!! Shortly after he was audited and one thing led to another. The sad part is when I called FSCO they said "Sorry but you will have to put that in writing." I said are you nuts they just shut down his real estate company and people are suing him left and right. So before damn FSCO investigated, Laramee declared bankruptcy on RBL Feb. 2nd. How coincidental. Also, the FSCO has no public advisories on their site. Thank god for RECO who makes the public aware of just a charge.

In a nutshell Laramee and witch face, dont f#$k with me. You tried to but you know I fight back. And back, and back and back. You may win a battle or two but you will never win the war against me suckers.

It's about time somebody mentioned these other conspirators that are "trying" to fly under the radar. I bet you that the only reason Damian, Fred and Rob are on the list of investors is so that they can be looked at as victims and not as Jason's secret agents (running back to him and Renata and informing them of what is being discovered). Specially Damian Wickie and Chris Gouthro are part of the scam. So be careful with these characters too and their so called families that have invested. Keep in mind that this scam was planned by the cons and this was yet another tactic on the scheme. The Truth always comes out. And in my opinion, if you know something (like where the money has disappeared to or how it was used), you are just as guilty as Jason Laramee & Renata Schumaker!!!

Anonymous said...

Damian Wickie is NOT a Victim and He IS part of the scam. He knows lots of things and he doesn't want to talk or share the vital info that he knows. It's not just Damian but its also the other RBL guys that are also very knowledgeable and could possibly be the ones that can solve the mistery on where the money is or how it was used.

I believe that this matter is in the hands of the court (justice system) and the Laramee's will undoubtedly suffer the appropriate consequences. Every person who has posted on this site should look in the mirror and perhaps move on from this and advance their own lives, careers etc. It amazes me to see the number of people with so much time on their hands - meditate, say a prayer but refrain from engaging in this slander - why the obsession with the Laramee's? I am not forgiving or excusing their actions, simply suggesting that everyone move on with their lives. They have 2 innocent children who deserve better than this!

Hey, What about that agent they groomed, Melissa Dorsett? She sold their Crofton house. Probably some mismanaged commissions there!

"why the obsession with the Laramee's?" well from this group there are about $3.5 million reasons for this obession. Would that a decent reason "WHY" we are not willing to move on?

I suggest instead of asking us to look in the mirror to move on, I would better suggest you use your Head in this time of despair before you speak. Clearly you are eithre un educated or part of the Laramee family.

It's really sad that all these immature "past friends" could have never stood up to renata and told her to her face how you all feel. You are all cowards and have nothing better to do with your life then vent your anger on this site. You have all lost sight of what happenedand are very immature. There are real people who have been majorly effected by this and clearly this is your opportunity to scrip your own soap. It's disgusting. For those of you who have chidren should not even be parents. The fact that you can sit there and write all of this. You should have written your name at the end so your kids could be proud of their parents who talked about these innocent children's lives. To even mention them is disgusting. I think it's true what the one person said. Move on with your lives. If you have a problem you should have confronted her with this rage long time ago. This site only shows that half of you don't even really care what happened to these victims all you care about is using this blog to act like a destructive teenager. Grow up!

I guess you have never been betrayed and robbed of your life savings.... You have no idea what this does to people.

I like you and many others hope that justice is served in this case but with our judicial system the consequences often do not match the crime... I was one of the lucky ones and got my money back from case but we didn't just sit idley by and hope and wait for someone to give us our money back, it won't happen like that, you have to fight for it.

You are the only supporter. You have not been on the receiving end of Renata's vindictive bullshit. This is a blog to defame and vent about what Jason and Renata did to people. If you are so brave, Where's your name? Stick your sympathetic nose elsewhere, better yet why don't you get a new Renata is wonderful web page going. We were targets f or many years and have suffered enough because of Renata & Jason. If you have not, then consider yourself fortunate. You don't need to be up in this blog to victimize the victims. This is not a forum to play nice, read the TITLE of blog one more time. You might understand where everyone's anger is derived from.

So I guess it's ok according to you what they both did. People are allowed to be disgruntled by what has transpired, this has nothing to with having children or being parents. As parents we need to protect our children from predators like the Laramee's! If you don't like the blog get off! Nobody cares for your stupid, asinine remarks.

These two individuals destroyed families, you should take your head out of the sand.

Melissa Dorsett is Chris Gouthro's wife. You know, one of the RBL Capital mortgage agents and recruiter for Jason's company. Funny how he was not an investor. She sold/bought many of their properties.
and btw, it's close to 9 million reasons why this blog is here. We are learning more about the Laramee's and Schumaker's of this world and might pick up a few leads on who else is involved so that they can speak out. What these heartless people have done cannot be forgotten and ignored. and we are moving on but we are not leaving without a fight for justice!

speaking on the side of a "past friend"… when I tried to speak to Renata as well as Jason directly about my concerns regarding different issues… she intern went ballistic!!!!!!! There was no discussion, no reasoning, simply a RAMPAGE and she never stopped until she tired of trying to destroy innocent reputations and decided to spew her viciousness against a new target… leaving the ones behind embarrassed and devastated. I would never condemn or speak in a negative manner regarding those poor children… I have said for years I felt she is far too unstable to even be a Mother. You obviously either have had your lifestyle nicely enhanced thanks to her generosity or you are in fact her… as I feel you'd be hard pressed to find a single person left who would ever back this person. Though I don't feel good reading some of these blogs.. I certainly can feel some sort of assurance that I wasn't alone, hurt but such a wicked wicked woman and the very weak man who stood far behind her and allowed her to effect others so dramatically. But then again… look who her husband is….. she stood back and allowed him to do what he did. A perfect match indeed.

Who the hell are you calling immature? What do you know about anything? Many of us did stand up to her, just because you are unaware of it doesn't mean it didn't happen. I know who this is, the nonsense writer. As for you there is a reason why you don't have children or a husband.

The devil himself wouldn't be able to recognize who the hell Jason and Renata are. Ever since highschool...looking into Jason's eyes one could see a 'souless' person. A dark...black...souless narcissistic person! He does not empathize with anyone. He's always been this way.
I don't think it's a good idea for people to be posting the names of their families (father's, mother's, step families, etc). This is something that both Jason and Renata have done. THEY have ruined lives and their 'associates' have ruined lives. There are many that are guilty here.
I feel for their kids. I just hope that they are placed in loving hands when their parents go off to prison for life (fingers crossed!)

I'm sorry 06:24 but you have this all wrong. The only answer here is for the Laramee's to pay back that damn money. That is the true answer. Those two should sell everything they own, and give as much back as they can in order for people to gain faith back toward them.

There are people that will get hurt along the way, especially when we know about the emotional toll that the Laramee's caused for countless people. PAYBACK AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU CAN NOW AND SAY YOU ARE SORRY!!!!!!!

Here on the West Coast, we are just now hearing this story. Our relationship with Cindy & Larry doesn't need to be explained. We are and always will be family. Their pain is our pain. We have offered our support in EVERY way possible and will never, ever let this family down. Why? Something Jason will NEVER understand. LOVE! As couples, we go back 35 years but as friends, Larry and I go back nearly 50 years! Forget Facebook. Who can say they have friends who have been there for them for that much time. 18Teammates for Life20 is a special message about guys that have been brothers since we were 10 years old. The sun will rise tomorrow and life will go on. The world has its share of evil people but thank goodness there are many, many more who will try to do the RIGHT thing whenever they can and abhor those who care only for themselves and don't care who they destroy on the journey. Larry and Cindy are good people and everyone who has ever crossed their path know that. I hope all of Jason's victims have the opportunity to recover some of their losses but more importantly, the opportunity to see him burn. We can forgive but we can never, ever forget.

I'm sorry 06:24… if you haven't been hurt by Renatas evil.. you have zero right to type an opinion. Renatas fancy shin dings were very short lived and were to show off new found wealth, made off others hard work. Regardless of what parties who attended… at some point.. we found out what damage she was capable of. She smiles with her baseball hat and smug grin and she stabs the knife in and twists without rest.
PLEASE don't preach about bad karma… She was the Queen of facebook status' condemning others and warning that Karma is a bitch. And she's still posting nonsense from what I understand, when she should be taking this time to have remorse, hang her head down and try to come to terms or god forbid show the slightest guilt for things she's maybe said and done in the past to be so relentless with the desire to hurt others. I thank goodness for this site, thought some comments have been unnecessary, but they have all come from the same deep pain caused by that woman. A victim she will never be. This site from what I understand if for facts and to help the ones damaged by this duo be allowed to vent and collect information to compare and hopefully come to conclusion. If she hadn't been so horrible to so many, more than half this blog wall would be empty… wouldn't it? Whats "UNBELIEVABLE" is that a 40yr old woman has fought ruthlessly with so many other adults. Its actually more than concerning that drama and upset follow her where ever she goes.. and I will guess, where she goes from this point forward. She won't change, sadly, even after this mess. I agree with 07:04, Sell off all of your things.. pay off the people you stole from and slither back to whatever life you choose to have, leaving the rest of us to pick up the pieces of the mess you created.

If the trailer and Hummer are registered to RBL, RBL is now bankrupt, and are leased with RBLs old address (and apparently it has sold and is up for sale again if I read the mentioned post correctly) Why are both still at the Lakeshore address? Who's making payments if the accounts are frozen? Do the leasing companies even know the address where the said leased vehicles are? Not sure how any of that works, but it seems wrong to me. Families can't afford groceries after this, but she drives around town in her Hummer.

We all hope for the same!!....unfortunately, the ones that offer any info. even if it peeves off the (left-over) friends that were not affected!. This forum is still informative!. Cut out the bull and you still get a vision of the real J and L!. If some one was murdered...I would thing the victims would be grateful for these posts!. what the above R and J supporters don't get is that people have committed suicide for losing less $$ than what some have lost due to embarass. and"failing" their family!. Would this bug them-then?. Jason and Renata would still be a victim!!!!!!!!!
Their trailer alone would be $$.- sent this sale to their victims!..anyway, enough said!

Because sadly, they have children and renata is just under investigation!. She (and kiddies) may be allowed to live there for the time being- hide the rest of the crap (hence- the trailer- that will be parked in a secret local-tracking device anyone!!!). They are looking for Jay who supposedly jumped ship...they don't even know where he is!. Prob. now residing on a island that is safe- extradition???....idiot!!!

Hey Einstein, At 6:24. What the hell are you spewing about?? When people are friends and then get blindsided and shortly afterwards stabbed to death by Renata with recourse and vengeance of course a character assassination such as this is born.

Attending parties and swimming in her dirty money pool prior to any of this has nothing to do with the present. Jason and Renata pulled the wool over people's eyes for along time. If you had a slight issue or problem and you addressed either of them, you were either de-friended on Facebook, received nasty threatening voice mails, verbally attacked, intimidated, targeted, and finally destroyed.

This blog is helping very much so, this is showing their character and credibility!!!!!!! All of us, or most of us could petition the court and sue Renata & Jason for defamation and slander.

They both are sociopaths, look up the definition. The term is well suited.

They took money from their friends, acquaintances, family, strangers and whomever else they could scam. This is NOT something you just get over and turn a new page. Innocent people lost everything they had because of both Renata and Jason. Renata controlled everything and everybody at Brekland!!!! She put her filthy face in everyone's business. All those agents that Lynda Rao recruited, for what?? All her effort was done in VAIN!!!, she's responsible for letting all those people down because they trusted her when she said Brekland was a wonderful place to be.

I will say this; back in 2008. I told Lynda Rao verbatim that Brekland felt like a movie set, not real and something really bad is going on here. I didn't have any proof but my intuition was RIGHT. I was then thrown under a bus and my life turned upside down. Too bad nobody listened to me, it would've saved the entire Rao family from their despair they are now facing. It makes me so sad to see Larry and Cindy suffering like this.

Furthermore, nobody is going to receive so called bad KARMA from venting and letting go of the pain that they have carried some for a brief time, many others for years.

So 6:24 who is useless and misinformed please go back under the rock you crawled out from. (BW) always known as a shit disturber.

Who attempts suicide and fails? Another way of trying to pull on the heart strings of the victims.

Keep strong bloggers....More and more people will come forth with pertinent information to help guide the victims to victory! Justice is coming!!! Believe......

Thanks for all your insight....and venom.

Great lessons.
While I fully agree about all the comments made about Jason on this blog, I also believe greedy investors allow people like Jason to exist in the financial industry. Using lines of credit to put money in such investments that smelled like a scam from a mile away, is all about stupidity and greed. I feel for investors but again their greed is what made all this exist. I wish everyone involved, especially the Stevens, an acceptable settlement and really hope Jason's kids are not affected so much by all of this.

I went to Jason and Renata's house on 351 Lakeshore Rd. W Oakville at noon to check it out in person. I wanted to see how these crooks lived on other people's stolen money.

Nice architecture, but a monster house on a small corner lot. The front is very showy with lots of nice landscaping. Not much of a tiny, unfinished back yard. This home is all about appearances and showing off - just like the scumbags that live there.

The Silver Hummer BKED 596, Black with Silver Trim Trailer with no windows, and a dark grey Honda BDDM 488 are still parked outside.

As I walked around the house on the street to check it out, I heard someone lock the deadbolt on the door closest to the Hummer.

Someone is home there, don't know who. House is dark.

Sociopaths...WELL SAID!!!
In Highschool and shortly thereafter, Jason was driving around in his purple Corvette, Range Rover, riding a very expensive Harley Davidson, taking trips all over, going out with his so-called 'friends' to nightclubs always paying the huge tabs that were tallied up at the bars, fast women, hosting parties at his Mom's house, wearing expensive clothes, buying expensive gifts, etc. I use to think he sold drugs and would ask him where he was getting his money from since he didn't come from an upper class (financial) family; he always had some lame excuse.
When Jason came back from the State Pen in Pennsylvannia, he confided in me and told me how he sat in his cell day in and day out reading financial books and the Canadian Law. He told me he wanted to work in some kind of financial industry. My suspicion...he was plotting his 'next' move. He knew the loopholes in our system....he knew what to do, how to do it, who to target, where to start and when he'd start this scheme. He knew if he ever got caught the fate he would face and how long he would face it for. He's hiding out...any narcissist, sociopath loves themselves too much to commit suicide. He's working on a plan to get out of this. He's smart and calculated.
As for Renata, everyone who has posted on here has spoken her truth...classless, trash mouthed, evil, ruthless, vindictive, spews hatred for all of mankind, uneducated, etc. Has anyone said anything nice about her? There was an earlier message which someone wrote that she loves her kids. If she knew what love truly was, she would not have done this to her kids. I am so saddened for all of the victims and what has been taken from them but as a mother who has willingly, knowingly and agreeably gone with this scheme...she has robbed her kids of their future and of having any kind of loving family and I don't know which is worse.

For her to sit back and cry the innocent victim, OMG… to know her at all is to find this alone so amusing.
She lead an already broken man to his ultimate destruction. Would bet money as soon as this all went down, she demand he leave. He well knows she'd never back him.
PLEASE don't preach how she's a housewife/homemaker. Others raised her kids and cleaned her home and cooked her meals while she spent time shopping, getting her hair done and spending more than average amounts of time with her personal trainer, again.. gave too much information to too many.
She's no better than the Italian Captain that jumped ship with his own lifeboat while others were left to tread water until they met their demise. Brutal.

she had told me at one point that both she and Jason were very well connected with Mississauga Strip Clubs. Never really understood what that meant. Then when FB came into play. She listed books about "How to get Rich Quick, Money Laundering, Young Couples Gaining Wealth". This is a complete truth. I remember so many of us commented to each other "wtf is that all about"? She publicly, on too many accounts to remember basically told so many what they were both up to.
Does anyone else remember Jasons big TV idea. He had at least 25 in their last home and said it was the next big thing. Never heard a word about it after that or where it lead to.

The scam was pitched with finesse. They had the fake backdrop for it! Their establishments where their scam was conducted looked the part, better then most banks. It would of fooled Steve Stavos!! Post 3:20 said it best! Kudos to you for your honesty!

It is so frightening to think most of us spent time with someone so evil, who is literally capable of anything! Back in the day he was dealing drugs for this I know (ecstasy and cocaine). Renata referred to some of our spouses as LOSERS because they didn't earn enough money. Now who is the loser Renata?

It scares me to think that Jason sat in a cell plotting his next crime, aren't they suppose to be rehabilitated before being set free? So I guess he will serve more time now in order to plot his next victimization. He was reading Canadian Law books in prison, that just gives me shivers up my spine! Renata knew this before marrying him and giving birth to two children. How do you live with yourself?

Jason was also running a business from the Robinson Street location where RBL Capital was located. it sold T.V's, audio equipment, cables, electronics and cell phones. It always seemed odd to me who would buy these kind of things based on a picture from a website and the only contact info was a telephone number and e-mail address for this company. It never mentioned anything about a showroom. This was another one of Jason's companies but I am not sure if he bankrupted it at the same time as he did RBL.

The website is still up and running.

Blaming the victims for being foolish for investing and saying that they got what they deserved is like someone saying if a person broke into your house and stole things it's your fault because you didn't lock the door. I'm sorry, but stealing is stealing no matter what and it's not right. I do not see anything wrong with investing in general. It's unfortunate what happened here and I feel for all the victims. I really do hope you all get your money back.

I think that the nay-sayers that criticize are also partly contributing in some way to the reason why so many fraudulent people in this country are getting away with crimes. You are not helping. How about focusing some energy on finding these fraudulent people and help put them away instead of point fingers at the victims? How about helping to push the government/judicial system to have in place harsher sentences for fraudulent crimes? Just some suggestions. I'm sure those nay-sayers wouldn't like to be in the shoes of the victims and they are being no better by saying nasty things. No one deserves to be ripped off and I do hope they find Jason and put him away. Yes, do your due diligence and research. Bo no matter what, what Jason and Renata did was wrong.

My heart and support goes out to all those affected by this man. God bless!

Investors were told if you don't contact police or newspapers, keep the bankruptcy on the down low, Jason would pay off the creditors who stayed quiet and supported him. Apparently RBL Capital money was invested in Bluetooth Tech, Jason had plans to take this company public on the New York Stock exchange and raise large sums of cash. But he doesn't hold any patents and it's products aren't proprietary, he is just trying to trade on the " Bluetooth " name. The company is really a worthless shell and just another Ponzi Scheme Jason had hatched. OSC is now on to Jason and his associates.

Interesting blog. A lot of hatred and animosity, most of it well earned I have no doubt. No matter how much anger any of you feel, this case will be decided in a court of law. There does not seem to be much doubt that Jason committed a crime but prooving Renata was involved is another story. Despite the hatred shown here for Renata, prooving she was involved will most likely be difficult. She is many things, and honestly most of what was said above (the nannies, the accusations, the back stabbing, the emails, phone calls and lies) is all true. In my mind she is the polar opposite of a nice person but that will not proove her guilt. Renata may be many things but when it comes to manipulation and self preservation there are few that can match her. I think, and again only my opinion, you will find assets have been placed in her name and kept separate from all the companies. Unless the courts have proof she was involved those assets will most likely be hers to keep. Is it right? Probably not. Will it happen? Most likely. She may have lived off the proceeds of a crime but prooving she was involved is a big step.

I feel sorry for those that invested and lost but the returns being offered simply did not make sense. At a time when the real estate market was experiencing compression their spending was growing. If an investor took the time to look at what was being offered they should have had some second thoughts. It is easy to look in the rear view mirror and say this but 12% returns with "no risk" just do not exist. This investment scheme was sold not on common sense but rather on desire and what you could do with the money, how you could live like the Laramee's.

It looks like a new thread has been started asking for factual information. Many of you have info that may help connect the dots. Enough hatred has been spewed, don't continue to lower yourself to those levels. The only way for anyone with a beef against Renata or Jason to win is to come forth with information that will lead to a conviction.

As much as I have enjoyed this blog, it is time to move on.

I highly doubt any of the funds are going to be recovered as the corporation has been left without any assets and holding the bag for all the liability. For the investors that lost their investments I am sad for their loss but for the Steven's they should look no further than their own nephew for blame. How is it that he is living in a $1.1 million home if he weren't benefitting directly from this scheme? Don't forget all the years that the investors were collecting their cheques for the 12% returns. Not trying to advocate on behalf of the accused, but there seems to be a pile of ignorance surrounding this whole case. I hope it can be sorted out in due time, but I highly doubt the money will be returned. The last step for the Laramee's will be to selloff all their assets (which it looks like they have or are in the process of doing) and then declare personal bankruptcy...then it will be over for the lawsuit(s). Renata may be a lot of what was described above, but still doesn't make her guilty of anything other than being a less than desirable friend. Again, I'm certainly not sticking up for anyone (as I don't know anyone involved) but thought an impartial view would be interesting for some to read. Good luck and hoping things work out for those who were wronged.

people want truths? its funny how the people on this blog demaning truths are the ones spreading the most lies and innaccurcies. how is this for truth: Mark Rao was being paid under the table by Jason personally for YEARS after he supposedly quit. for YEARS Mark Rao continued on Jason's payrol and continued to cash cheques and bilk investors (including his friends (yeah, you know who mark) and FAMILY. Those who throw the most stones, are by far the guiltiest. accusing the innocent people that were unlucky enough to either invest with jason or to work for jason either at brekland or rbl makes you no better than jason himself.

oh, and here is another truth: anoymous posts are not as anoymous as some people are thinking. There are lawyers drafting up suits and claims against the people on this blog who have been making slandersous comments about innocent people, so your lies and slander are about to come back and bite you. Lawyers, police and IP addresses are amazing things these days. you are petty and disturbed people. no wonder you were like family to Jason.

people: asking for truth is one thing, making upn lies to support other lies is wrong. so far, most posts on here have been by the same 3 people who think they are invisible. you are not invisible anymore.

Jason and his wife are horrible people and should do some serious jail time for the lives they have ruined. The other people associated with Jason such as Damien and all the others, are also victims. Everyone is bashing them, but didn't stop to think that they are in the same position as the other victims and lost a lot of money. They may have had some suspicions, but do you really think Jason would confine in anyone besides his family when he was doing something so illegal, especially knowing the consequences. They trusted him just like his clients did, if not more, and just like them, his friends were fooled too. Be mad at Renata and Jason because they are the real criminals. The two of them will do, say and give up anyone else's names, including their so called "friends" in order to save themselves. I'm sure all his associates are being investigated so until something comes up that actually put them in a position to be under scrutiny lets all focus on making sure Jason gets punished.

We spent new years together where i had to listen to an endless amount of her typical Bull*** how great she is and how everyone else is the enemy.

I have always thought and will continue to think she is a few bricks short of a house. I am not a supported or Jason at all, but GOOD FOR you for dealing with a NAZI like her for as long as you have. Maybe you two will be able to have orange jump suit visits shortly when you are locked up?

Please continue your digging investors, there is alot that is uncovered. I am going to help where i can. I am just glad she will be behind bars where the poor public will not have to listen to her lies and crap anymore.

If I may state a number of facts with respect to this whole situation and respond to the 3:18 blog. 1- at no time was the lawsuit intended to tarnish, damage or malign any innocent party 2- the parties named in the lawsuit resulted from investigations that indicated they were involved in some form ( a great deal of documentation) or had knowledge of Mr. Laramee's business transactions 3- It is alledged that those people were in fact aware of Mr. Laramee's Criminal past and that he held a mortgage agent license in contrvention of Fuso regulations further they alledgely received moneys from RBL for bringing investors on board as their commission, nor did they at any time verify the moneys they had solicited was in fact being used for the purpose for which it was intended. 3- Mrs. Laramee alledges she was an ordinary housewife who happened to be able to purchase a number of properties but has not at this time been forthright in advising how the money for these purchases was derived 4- the investors were fully aware to my knowledge of a risk which is inherent in any investment but that does not include fraud (fraud does not constitue an investment risk and is in fact a crime)5- With respect to myself yes my wife is aware of the payments recieved and yes it is declared but it does verify the lengths Mr. Laramee (which may be considered illegal on his part not mine) was prepared to perform to keep the investor's money. 6- Regardless of your feelings in this matter there is no excuse for taking advantage of people such as the Stevens (there are a number of them via dishonest means).7- The information that has come forward from a number of people is and has been appreciated and will permit a fair and just evaluation by the courts as to what resposibility and involvement all parties named in the lawsuit had in this matter.
