Spanish Fly Clothing / Money stealing company

My husband met these people at the bank. They asked him if he knew any investors. My husband was interested so we went over their house to see their business plan. They convinced us that they were going to hit the middle-upper class Latinos with a new clothing company, Spanish Fly Clothing.

They live in a mansion in Rancho Cucamonga. They told us that they just bought the home for 1.6 million dollars. They looked very classy and had everything you would think someone very successful would have. Their idea was also original and we believed in what they were doing. After a month of researching about them we decided to go with the promissory note. We verified that the attorney that wrote the note was also legit. We gave them ALL of savings for our first home of $60, 000. They guaranteed us that they will give us our 60k plus another 60k in one year. Our note was due on January 1, 2009. They have not paid us a penny!

We still kept in touch with them and wanted to get updates about the business. It really did seem like it was going to be a huge success. In June Colleen Ramirez asked us for more money. She asked us for 6k and she guaranteed us our 6k plus 1k if we let her borrow the money for 7 days. She kept making excuses until after the 7 days and never paid us back.

After that we knew we just got scammed. We started doing more research and hired a private investigator. We found out everything about them was a lie. They scam people as a professional. They open corporations and close them down after they scam people. They have a desist and refrain order from the state and still continue to scam people without getting punished.

We contacted her dad and he even said to get the DA involved and that she scammed her own aunt and stepmom.

Do not believe anything they say. Do not give them money. The FBI is already involved and if they don't pay us back it will just get worse legally. Do not trust them!

We have lost over 70k because of them. All hard earned money from working.

    sounds like another investment that was affected by the economy...If your attorney advised you to continue with the contract he must have also thought it was a sound investment.

    Maybe you should have hired a better attorney...Or maybe you shouldnt have invested money if you dont have any...the moral of the story is dont be a business man if you have no business skills...

    Spanish Fly Clothing, Elevate Magazine, One Empire are all run by Colleen M Ramirez aka Colleen Skolnick & Robert A Olivas. These two are no better than 2bit con-artist, how ever they are a bit more intelligent. I was introduced to these people through a "friend" who I haven't spoken with since. Their business practice is to bend over backwards for you in the beginning. After they get you to sign their contract it is next to impossible to get ahold of them. They tell you your investment is to further the "business" but what you are really paying for is the lifestyle they are used to living. All in all after dealing with these people I was out closed to $4000. Money I had planned on using to go towards my wedding and honeymoon. Needless to say my weddings budget was cut drastically short and the honeymoon I originally had planned was canceled.

    At this point i'm in contact with Robert Olivas to see what can be done
    to correct this problem with Kardia Capital/Options. Will update asap
    I think more due diligence should of been on Options part since it was there office and there people that took in the work and moneys!!!
    When you lose your home over something like this, its hard to recover
    God bless

    Carl, like i stated when i called you. Since you paid KARDIA Capital with a personal check it should be very easy to see who endorsed and cashed the check and go after them. i do want to point out that ' The Olivas Team ' has never been affiliated with Kardia Capital and that we in know way have ever done loan Mods with The Olivas Team. Again, Carl if we can help you in any way we will. i do hope you refrain from any negative comments in the future about me, my wife or companies since you know now that Kardia is who you paid not Robert, Colleen, The Olivas Team or Options. You do have the cancelled check and i encourage you to go after them. If there is any way i can help you do have my number and email address. i wish you all the best and we will be here for you .

    @Robert you are a joke, con artist and low life true to form you seem to have an excuse for everything. sorry but my information was incorrect that you landed a deal with Keller Williams I just got word that it is actually with Century 21 King in Rancho Cucamonga. You are a lying crook and anyone associated with you can be assumed to be the same. You give out your phone number and email address like you are proving something that is a even bigger joke than you are. I challenge anyone to call him all he will do is have his lying ### secretary say he is not there when she knows he is. You also say you have won a defamation suit ( I guess this is an attempt to try and scare people to not post about you and your crooked family) well I call ### on that one. In order to win a defamation suit you have to prove that what was printed about you was a lie. Prove it. post a case file # if there is such a case that you have won then it can be easily verified like what has been done above concerning you. By the way you have never once denied or tried to defend that have you.Maybe because you have conveniently tried to avoid bringing attention to fact that the STATE OF CALIFORNIA BUSINESS, TRANSPORTATION AND HOUSING AGENCY DEPARTMENT OF CORPORATIONS has taken action against you. By the way folks there is a very lengthy, drawn out process of proving facts before the state will get involved. They have to make sure without a shadow of doubt that the accused is absolutely guilty of wrong doing. They have to make sure that the complaints are 100% founded so they do not punish companies for unjust reasons. Thanks Carl for calling them out on their ### pile of lies and half truths
