British ex-scammer, 58YO Gregory John BURNARD, to be deported.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

British ex-scammer, 58YO Gregory John BURNARD, to be deported.

Gregory John Burnard, British national, was picked up on the streets of Phnom Penh by the police on the night of November 3 2016. He had no passport and was homeless, living on the streets.He is believed to have been in Cambodia since 2013 and he has previous history as a financial scammer.

Two interesting details in this case are firstly that Greg Burnard has been identified as an expat who scammed other expats, and secondly, only 2 days after he was found homeless, the British Embassy have requested that he be sent back to Great Britain.

The Embassy: Over the years, there have been many well-documented cases of British nationals literally dying in the streets of Cambodia through ill-health and lack of funds to return home. Many expats in Cambodia have spoken out about what they perceive to be the British Embassy's callous refusals to help repatriate these people in need.It would be enlightening to know why the British Embassy have stepped up this time, and so promptly.

The scamming:
========= Message I put on Scammers in Cambodia Facebook page
After I saw the members of this group many of you know me and already know the story. Greg J Burnard rolls around town talking a big game of investment banking and all these big things he's doing in Cambodia. In my unfortunate four month I experienced w him, not 1 single thing came to fruition. Says he works directly for Richard Branson and he's going to have 80 people operation over here by December. I actually could write a novel on the experience I'm just telling you straight up, don't believe a word of this guy's bullshit. He did everything the description of this page describes, borrowed money, didn't pay his tab, etc, etc. Here's some more we dug up on him, unfortunately too late - http://www.danwei.org/newspap…/shanghai ... nigans.php. Let's just say myself and several other people that got involved with him were left holding the bag $$$ YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!

Ex- Scammer? So he's found Jesus and changed his ways or maybe people got ahead of his game and he ran out of folk to scam. Not important, but good riddance to the cunt. Pity no one caught up with him and gave him a slap or 3!

Probably harder to pull financial scams when you are on the streets and out on your arse. Not so much converted, as no longer fit for purpose.

Well, let us all hope that Richard Branson will recover swiftly from the loss of this streetguy working directly for him.

This must be the same guy surely. How many financial scammers called Greg Burnard could there be in Cambodia ? This is from his LinkedIn profile.
Image
He lists himself as CEO for a company called Uk Capital Investments, which is posted on a "scammers" website. Looks like high class embezzlement.

Perhaps he is wanted in the UK, which would explain why the UK authorities were so keen for him to be deported ?

looks like the only way the British authority's will help you get back if you are homeless and living on the streets in a foreign country is if you are a scamming bastard who is wanted back home.............. :BangHead:
