IOS Fine Art / John c. Golfis is a predator who is wearing a mask of an employer and photographer
IOS Fine Art LLC has proven to be far less relaxing than the Greek Isle of IOS. John C. Golfis has swindled another "investor" to serve as his "middle man" to form a new corporate shell to evade authorities and victimize more people.
John C. Golfis/IOS Fine Art LLC posted the following notice on eBay:
"Welcome! We are a fine art dealer and photo to art producer in Dallas, Texas. We currently have 3 galleries in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and are in the process of buying another in Florida. We have several projects that we work on, we sell originals, we produce giclees for artists and market them and we work in photo to art on canvas for customers.
We have over a dozen artists that we work with as IOS artists and many more that seek us out to do giclees for them. Our system, well it's taken years of research to perfect, but we've finally done just that. The problem with giclees up to now, is that there was always a difference in the colors, the shadowing was off, the expression wasn't just right.
We have now got the only 88 mega pixel camera and designed our own software to ensure that you can't tell a difference between the original painting and the giclee by looking at it, even with a trained eye, the artist themselves can't even distinguish. It's truly amazing and we are very proud of our hard work.
Photo to art is an area that people are really starting to embrace and love! We can take any photo that you've taken and turn it into a masterpiece on canvas in virtually any size. Changing backgrounds, painting garden scenes, you name it, we can do it. We can enhance your photos, do some oil painting on top of it to further enhance it. These truly are our masterpieces! We are getting geared up, as we are also opening a gallery in Canada soon and will then be looking at setting up in Finland!"
What IS truly amazing is John C. Golfis forgot to mention he spent 5 years in a CA prison doing all his supposed "research". In fact, he was released in 2004!! Now THAT'S amazing! Before that, he spent time in federal prison and numerous jails after he was arrested for a variety of crimes including kidnapping, securities fraud, worthless checks, rape, assault and fraud by wire.
AND, John C. Golfis forgot to mention that he simply recycles this same information with every scam and is used as a diversion tactic while he blows all your money wining & dining his next victim with money to invest! While doing this, he will place little importance on taxes, bounced checks, paying employees wages, refunding customers their "deposits" or paying those many vendors for the product he uses in his scams to lure the next round of customers, employees and investors.
In fact, John C. Golfis simply plays everyone for a fool while he ENJOYS and BENEFITS from their hard work, money and time.
Report him to police if you've been victimized before he flees the country.
John C. Golfis is a PREDATOR mascarading as EMPLOYER and PHOTOGRAPHER. He has ripped off many in the Los Angeles, Pasadena and Hollywood area prior to fleeing California in 2005. If you attended one of his "hotel seminars" and lost money to him after, report him to police immediately. He targeted many photographers and models in the area and we want justice.
