    For one thing the website you listed is only a tad over a year old.
    https://www.godaddy.com/whois/result...oDaddy&pl_id=1;



    The website also is using a private registration service (Domains by Proxy) to hide who they really are and where the are located.

    The website itself gives no contact info. However this is buried in the T&C's:
    http://andrewceonctruem.com/terms-and-conditions.html;



    Notice that there is no address or phone number, just a link back to the website.

    There actually is a IMS, LLC registered in California since 2001. Unfortunately it is a Real Estate business per the business listings at manta.com and yellowpages.postsouth.com;
    You could give them a call, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have no idea what you are talking about.

    That is mainly due too the lack of responses to a Google Search for "Andrew Ceonctruem". There are actually less the 40 returns and almost all of them are only a year or so old at most.
    And just in case you didn't notice his books are not actually listed on Amazon, there is actually no product there to buy.

    Continued in next post.

    So, it appears to be a pen name at best and a made up name at most.

    andrewceonctruem.com;



    The Icelandic alphabet contains 32 letters and I'm afraid that the letter "C" is not actually one of them. The letter "C" is used in Iceland in foreign words and can be used in family names of mainly foreign origin.
    wikipedia.org/wiki/Icelandic_orthography

    However, Icelandic does not use a "'" except in the use of some vowels, á, é, í, ó, ú, and ý. So, Ceon’Ctrue’m does not appear to be a name of Icelandic origin. My guess would be Gaelic, think Ireland.

    In fact, neither spelling even gets any returns with the Iceland phone book.

    en.ja.is/?q=Ceon%27Ctrue%27m;

    en.ja.is/?q=Ceonctruem;

    You would think that a marketing genius of 25 years with such a uniquely spelled name would show up somewhere on the internet over the years.

    Oh, someone using that name and linking to that website did get banned over at warriorforum after only three days almost a year ago.

    What do you mean by 'wired'?
    Do you mean something like Western Union or MoneyGram?
    Or do you mean like a bank transfer?

    I'd recommend consulting a attorney about the matter. Most likely you'll have to sue to recover any funds. If you can track them down that is.

    You can also file a complaint at:
    oag.ca.gov/contact/consumer-complaint-against-business-or-company
    Note that the OAG cannot represent you in a personal legal sense. You'll need your own lawyer for that.

    Oh,
    QuickSearch;



    No attorney by the name 'Ceonctruem' is licensed in California.

    Most apologies. I made an error above in the OP, part of that should read as;

    "The website itself gives no contact info. However this is buried in the T&C's:
    http://andrewceonctruem.com/terms-and-conditions.html;



    Notice that there is no address or phone number, just a link back to the website."

    Sorry, for inserting the wrong image file there.

    He contacted me also. Asked if I wanted money to take a thread down. LoL.

    I told him that his request was denied.

    From what I understand a Lionel Ong is the either the thread starter 'Angelstar1974' or an acquaintance of theirs.

    The individual with the username 'Lionel Ong' is an imposter, and likely the scammer. They admitted as much in the PM to myself. Besides, take a look at this thread;
    https://www.scam.com/showthread.php?...Good-Companies.
    Definitely the work of a scammer there trying to silence complaints.

    Why anyone would think that this andrewceonctruem.com is a legit site now is beyond me. LoL
