Mixed reports still coming in from users. There seems to be a lot of expectation that something will happen this coming Monday.
Some users are claiming to have been exchanging emails to and from Mark Stelvio via email and Gmail chat. This has raised concern as to whether the email address is in fact that of Mark Stelvio and not someone simply impersonating him.
MarketingMaster has confirmed his email address as being correct. He writes:
"No it is Mark..I have spoken with him before years ago as well as anytime I have had a serious issue that I felt Panos couldn't respond too. And yes, I have been speaking with Mark all morning too."
Limeno has also been in touch with Mark via Gmail Chat:
"Mark: Dear sir
Genius Funds won't accept any investors from Canada anymore even if they use bank accounts which are not in Canada - Sent at 1:07 PM on Saturday
Me: o.k. nice that this matter is closed. So when will be online, on monday again?
Mark: yes sir, all withdrawals will processed then
Me: last one: when on monday - do You have any timeframe and do You think that web link will be strong enough to cope with all investors want to log in
Mark: yes sir our website will cope with it rest assured. Website will be accessible on Monday 7 GMT"
Another of our GoldArena.net members has reported the following:
"Hi there - I have just a moment to post that I actually called Price Waterhouse late last night [11 pm my time was 8 am their time]- they are in the same building as genius funds.
I asked if genius funds was still in the same building - it was hard to understand the accent of the gal who answered the phone but she said "oh yes, yes - genius funds is on 3rd floor" - hopefully they will come back by this coming monday as they indicated to me on a recent online chat. time will tell."
Finally, another email received by a member from Mark Stelvio.
"Hey Guys and Gals,
I had responded to Mr. Stelvio's initial email that I posted with some additional comments, and he emailed me back again:
From: Mark Stelvio (email@example.com)
Sent: Fri 3/19/10 5:27 PM
We will be back on Monday and our CEO Kevin Peiffer is going to explain everything to our valued investors by email Monday morning.
