I have dated a self sufficient man that attends his meetings and His promises the moon of course (Mr. Darnall) is up to no good with his associates where he had listed as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and other billionaires that have supposedly deposited “Gold Bars.” in China’s banks for investment reasons. Darnall does to my fiance . Repeatedly mentioning the reason for these “meetings” (TOTAL BULL SH**) .
Mr. Darnall has made promises to my fiance along with those that attend his “$20 dollar mandatory fee meetings” you will indeed get a billion dollar limit credit card with interests deposited from China’s Bank which are worth more than 5 millions dollars.
In other words “free Money” to be issued to all that pay the fee and stick around for the delivery (yah right). Use common sense people!
The monies are to be transferred from China’s Bank to these Billion dollar credit card limited accounts with no payback ,only understood a reward for the time waited (TOTAL LIES). Why would anyone give their hard earned money to Mr. Darnell , and to be distributed among people that he had only met 5 months prior?
Mr. Darnall has a BIG ego and is a very confident and self motivated man that can convince almost anyone that he had been a victim of a scam and in turn lost everything including his home in 2000 (turns out HE was the scam!).
A man that can speak of past occurrences, his issues and that these are located on the internet for all to read , Mr. Darnall had told my fiance BEFORE he could look him up on the internet that the court orders are not true, and a lie , smooth operator told someone before they could call him on it. Mr. Darnall is a CON and a manipulating individual that needs to STOP USING ones weaknesses to get them to believe all this will take place legally without any criminal prosecution. We did due diligence and checked out his claims .
HE IS TOTAL BS! If you know of anyone that has attended any of his mislead, over confident skims PLEASE inform them of a man that has no proof of ANY of his accusations, nor evidence of Mr. Gates or Mr. Buffet giving him (Mr. Darnall )permission to use their name (Again … BILL SH**)! Mr. Darnall has been seen and known for his meetings located at: Dennys Rest. in Downey Ca. at least 2 times a week (now in other cities after getting run out of Downey).
I am writing this to let others know this scam has been going on that i know of for 5 months strong, His request from his secretary that he was in need of extra funds in order to fulfill his agreement to the members was habitual and frequent.
The funds asked by Darnall’s secretary were needed in order for Mr. Darnall to reach his destination to retrieve this so called Billion Dollar investment ” for the “members of his hush hush meeting”. Mr Darnell had told my fiance that he was not to leak out the names of the investors and to NOT TELL ANYONE of the silent partner deposits from Mr. Gates and Mr. Buffett ect…We called the offices of The Bill and Linda Gates Foundation and they deny ANY involvement with Darnall.
I do hope that this will help in the resolving the real motives of Mr. Darnalls need for RIPPING OFF others to satisfy his pocketbook. Stay away from this criminal and his manipulations and bullying!

WARNING: RLDSCI, LLC, RLDS, LLC, Robert L. Darnall Companies, LLC, RLD, LLC, Transportation Consultants, LLC State of Maryland. consumers warned of easy-money scheme December 10, 1992 |By David Conn | David Conn,Staff Writer A California businessman has been offering Marylanders once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make loads of easy money. But officials from various states are warning consumers to watch their wallets. The businessman, Robert L. Darnall, of Agoura Hills, Calif., has scheduled a third weekly meeting tonight at a hotel in College Park to explain a business venture offered by his company, Platinum Associates Inc. Platinum says it has a deal in which it can offer what amounts to free Visa or MasterCard credit cards, with a free life insurance policy worth $67,000, which the company says is offered through Aegon USA, the Baltimore-based parent of Monumental Corp. Further, those who sign up others for this remarkable deal will receive an average of $1,100 per subscriber in commissions and bonuses, according to Platinum’s promotional material.
“Don’t ask how we can do it,” a Platinum brochure says, “just ask how you can participate in what has been called: ‘Simply the best money making machine available today — maybe the best ever!’ ” But according to an Aegon statement yesterday, “it has absolutely no relationship or arrangement with Platinum Associates Inc. . . .” Likewise, MasterCard International said it has “no information on any MasterCard member that’s working with Platinum,” and “therefore we find them in violation” of the association’s regulations.
And Visa U.S.A. spokesman Albert Coscia said that “Platinum Associates is neither a Visa member financial institution nor a registered marketing agent of a Visa member.” He said Visa’s security and fraud control division and its legal division are investigating and prosecuting Darnall and Platinum.
Maryland officials, including the attorney general’s consumer protection division and the consumer credit commissioner’s office, said they knew nothing about Platinum or Mr. Darnall. But his ventures have received decidedly negative reviews in several states. Hershel Elkins, an official with the California attorney general’s office, said that although no complaints have been filed with his office concerning Platinum, the state was aware of what
Mr. Elkins called “a very peculiar money-making scheme.” Mr. Elkins’ advice to consumers was to “take a very, very long look and check with your department of insurance and insurance agent before you proceed.” The Georgia Office of Consumer Affairs last week issued several cease-and-desist orders against Platinum for alleged violations of Georgia law, including running a “multilevel marketing program,” better-known as a “pyramid scheme,” according to Barry W. Reid, administrator of the Office of Consumer Affairs in Georgia.
“Basically we’ve taken the position that it’s just another illegal get-rich-quick scheme,” Mr. Reid said, adding that as many as 300 people attended a recent Platinum meeting outside of Atlanta, and many of them paid $55 for the right to obtain a “free” credit card and life insurance policy. At that meeting, a representative of Platinum said Aegon was the insurance company behind the program, Mr. Reid said. And at a similar meeting in Arizona, Platinum officials handed out a list of about 10 insurers, including Aegon, which it said was backing the plan, an Aegon spokeswoman, Rosemary S. Kostmayer, said yesterday. Last year, the Washington state attorney general’s office sued Mr. Darnall and a company called Excel Exchange Inc. “We alleged he was operating an illegal chain distribution scheme” that involved an offer of a free house for those who signed up enough subscribers, said Anthony Carter, an investigator with the attorney general’s office in Tacoma. Mr. Darnall admitted the violations and agreed to an injunction preventing him from any further violations in Washington.
Neither Mr. Darnall nor an assistant in California returned calls to Platinum’s office yesterday. A receptionist for Thayer C. Lindauer, whom Platinum’s promotional material names as Platinum’s legal counsel, said Mr. Lindauer is no longer working for the company. WARNING TO PERFORM STRICT DUE DILIGENCE ON ALL REPORTED CONTACTS AND ALIGNMENTS CLAIMED BY THIS INDIVIDUAL!

Robert Darnall (Robert L. Darnall Sr. Credit Card Criminal activities over 20 years)
Court Orders Halt to Sale of ‘Free’ Credit Cards : Finance: Robert L. Darnall Sr., Agoura Hills firm is one of several accused of preying on cash-strapped consumers. Other Company Alias’: RLDSCI, LLC RLDS, LLC, Robert L. Darnall Companies, RLD Companies, Transportation Consultants International December 22, 1992 |DENISE GELLENE | TIMES STAFF WRITER
Visa U.S.A. and Mastercard International said Monday that they have obtained a temporary restraining order stopping an Agoura Hills firm from drawing people into an alleged pyramid scheme offering “free” credit cards. The illegal scheme by Robert L. Darnalls Sr. Platinum Associates Inc. is said to have taken in as much as $3 million from 30,000 people nationwide. Ads by Google Credit Card Applications Pay No Interest for 18 Months. Get a $100 Cash Back Bonus. Apply. www.SmartCreditChoices.com The order, obtained in U.S. District Court in San Francisco last Friday, effectively shuts down the company’s operations nationwide, at least temporarily.
The order came one day after a state Superior Court judge halted the firm’s operations in California and froze its assets in the state at the request of the California attorney general’s office. The alleged scheme is only the latest to snare financially strapped people with the promise of instant credit. “There are a lot of scams out there,” said Cindy A. Liebes, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission in Atlanta, which on Monday settled charges in an alleged “gold card” scam involving an Alabama firm. While these scams are not new, they appear to be proliferating, as operators attempt to exploit consumers suffering from an economic slump that has cost thousands of jobs.
The suits filed by the state and Visa and Mastercard against Platinum Associates said the firm recruited participants in the alleged scheme by promising “free” secured credit cards and “free” life insurance for a $24.95 fee. According to the suits, participants were also told that they could become rich by signing up others, receiving $1,100 for each new recruit. The suits maintain that Platinum Associates, also known as P.A.I., is not authorized to market credit cards or insurance.
The suits also state that P.A.I. does not have a relationship with any bank or insurance company authorized to market the financial products. Authorities said that no one has yet received a credit card or insurance, though Platinum did not promise either until after Jan. 1. In addition, only a few people have been paid anything for bringing new people into the scheme, authorities said. Visa and Mastercard are seeking to have Platinum Associates barred from using their names in its solicitations. The state is seeking to have the scheme halted permanently and the money returned to consumers. A representative of Platinum could not be reached for comment.
A fax sent to its office was unanswered. Its telephone was answered with a recorded message stating that no meetings would be held and no money collected because of the court orders. Authorities identified Platinum’s founder as Robert L. Darnall, who recruited participants at seminars at hotels in California and at least three other states. California Deputy Atty. Gen. Albert Sheldon said that Darnall was fined by authorities in Washington state last year in connection with a “house of your dreams” scheme. The FTC case involved National Credit Services of Ozark, Ala., which marketed secured cards and merchandise catalogues to people with bad credit.
The FTC said consumers received postcards telling them to call a 900 number to get recorded information about a credit card. When they called, consumers were told to call a second 900 number, running up a tab of nearly $60. The FTC said that while consumers did receive secured cards, the marketing was deceptive because consumers weren’t told the cost of the call, nor were they told upfront that they would receive a secured credit card, which requires a deposit.
Robert Darnall (Robert L. Darnall Sr.
Is this the same guy that was holding meetings in the Beverly Hills Hilton a few years ago? If it is, he never paid us back either!! Once we got out a year or so from the supposed “non-recourse loan” we LOANED to him, we have not heard from him since. He reminds me of those guys that stand by the side of the freeway exit begging for food and liquor money holding a sign that says “Give me Money and I will make you rich, NO PROMISES OR WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED!”
And the pathetic thing is, People just keep loaning him money and he just keeps taking it. DECEPTIVE, YES! CRIMINAL, YES! A BULLY, YES! Will he stop, NO!! Who is going to stop milking the system and taking advantage coercing, lying & stealing from people when it is good money and you are heartless bastard?! NOT THIS CRIMINAL FOR SURE!

Robert L. Darnall Sr. Crimes and Scams
Darnall is still free because he is a master manipulator, communicator and works craftily between holes in the law. He intimidates and does his homework! These holes are now quickly closing due to his abuses (illegal). Robert L. Darnall Sr., recently had another run-in with the law and ended up have another altercation with law enforcement. He attempted to sue for violation of his criminal civil rights.
The judge threw him out on his ear and dropped the case;
After I went to one of his meetings in November I went to the BBB in Downey. They had already had multiple complaints. The local fraud police are overworked and underfunded. They want to help but the situation of potential securities fraud is out of their jurisdiction so they cannot sell this kind of case to superiors.
They have proven to be almost useless unless you deal directly with the “White Collar Crime” division. There are also several Latino advocate groups and the Better Business Bureau that need to be continually informed immediately. Do not believe his “expert” witnesses, recorded and manipulated recordings and attorneys in the room! They are under some manipulated or coerced spell and are “his” attorneys and witnesses and would not be there unless under his complete and total control! It is our opinion that he financed his current operation only from victims monies and has been living on others credit cards since before March.
With all due respect to those who have already “gifted” him money . . . This is so tragic! You will never get your money back! It is unfathomable to believe that someone can solicit investment (in the form of non-recourse loans or gifting programs (he won’t tell you that in truth you are gifting him money or assets etc…) or promise of future benefit (with no warranties expressed or implied … e.g. GIFT!) in a credit card program or otherwise without adequate representation, provable documentation or federal/state SECURITIES or banking registration, and solicit financial contribution in a group setting (against the law) to un-qualified, unsophisticated targets (also illegal). We have been collecting a database of victims and encouraging and warning the Latino Community in the Downey and surrounding community to do the following;
1) Avoid ANY recorded conversations or written communication with him in any way. These conversations are by design and will be twisted and used against you in the future
2) Ignore his fear and bullying strong-arm tactics as they are meant to control and separate cash from the wallets of un-suspecting, hard-working Latinos and other unsuspecting unqualified, unsophisticated investors
3) Immediately contact The Better Business Bureau in Downey CA., (or any other local community where he holds meetings) and consistently make them aware of his claims and activities. The more calls they get, the better
4) Immediately report his activities to the Attorney Generals office in Sacramento as they have a file on him and the local FBI (as this is dealing with banks) detailing his entity name and suspected abuses. Again, the more calls they receive the better
5) Send us a private email to [email protected] and explain his activities in greater detail (including additional meeting locations, times and copies of his documentation attached).
His Non-disclosure agreement is invalid if his activities are illegal or abusive.
6) Consider handing out fliers in front of these meetings warning Latino participants of the reality of what they are agreeing to . An unregistered gifting program with no promise of any return in any way.
7) As for law enforcement, you need to ask for Downey, CA, you must ask for the Officer in charge of White Collar Crime) (or any community where he holds meetings where he requests funds in a group setting). The key here is numbers. The more victims that come forward the more attention that will be given to the matter.
8) Also needed are the make, model and year of the car he drives and the license plate numbers. 9) Ask for a copy of his business license to do these meetings in your community. He does not have one. Look on peoplesearch and other on-line due diligence bureaus.
You will see that he has had over 18 residences since moving from Washington to California and is plagued by a myriad of un-collected judgments (background check on “Peoplesearch”) and legal problems. As of the date of this response he is currently living transient from hotel to hotel as he has stuck his last three landlords for rent … go by and talk to them like I did (addresses by his name on utility company public record) or ask him if you can drive by his house.
He usually lives in extended stay hotels and asking for “gifts” (from what some tell us these requests are more like “demands”,
Those that are tricked into making verbal agreements to him on tape and then find out thinks are different than he claimed are VERY quick to dismiss him for who he is. However, with the damage done, transcripts distributed, or public broadcast of those recordings are used to prove his fraudulent points or destroy the character of his victims if they do not cooperate. Just perform some simple due diligence and tests and ask him for his current address and land line phone number.
Go to his offices, talk to his staff (at his offices, not at the meetings. Lastly, at least encourage anyone who is foolishly considering a gift or non-recourse loan to Mr. Darnall that they PERSONALLY call every reference, contact and telephone number and PERSONALLY ask each supposed reference their personal opinion. Call the banks involved, ask for multiple references and due diligence information.
DO NOT TAKE HIS REPRESENTATIONS OF BEING A VICTIM, HE IS A THIEF! Do NOT ALIGNMENT OR RECORDED BELIEVE THE DOCTORED, COERCED CONVERSATIONS HE PLAYS IN FRONT OF THE AUDIENCE OR HIS LIES ABOUT EXPLAINING AWAY THESE POSTS ON THE INTERNET AS LIES AS THEY ARE FACT! The only lies and deceit are what comes from this criminal bullys mouth and are most generally contrived or premeditating the manipulated responses! He records conversations for two purposes; forcing capitulation, forcing verbal agreements when someone finds out later what the TRUTH REALLY is (illegal), and instilling control and fear. Please do yourself a favor and perform DETAILED due diligence before gifting this man money as he has stolen so much from so many. One final point on his aptitude test scores; Testing of this nature is only a sign of how well the participant takes aptitude tests! Not a sign of genius. Call the professor that issued the test. You will find it a very interesting conversation. Darnall does not have authority to use any of his documentation to solicit gifting or investment of funds. The authors of these documents need to be made aware that these activities are occurring in their name. That is the same for all the people we called (including the offices of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Just more lies! Good luck and continue to warn others of this bullys activities!
