Elevations ResortsAndre Muran

Andre Muran of Canmore is behind many scams in Alberta. Chateau World was his last masterpiece and now, because his name is so associated with scams in Alberta, he has started a new company called "Elevations Resorts" in Canmore. He can't use his own name so they are claiming that his son Theodore Muran is the director- but the real Director is Andre Muran.

Andre Muran has some of his staff setting up fake blogs and postings under his name to try and hide the truth about his businesses and the 125 criminal charges that were filed against him and his companies (Royal Club International, Royal Club Resorts, etc.)

The links they are trying to hide from people are:

Chateau World of Resorts in Canmore Alberta, along with Royal Club International, [URL=]Andre Muran[/URL], Chateau Canmore, Banff Gate Mountain Lodge and Spa, and now it is rumored, Elevations Resort and Properties Internatinal - is there anything consumers should know before they deal with these businesses? YEP! For your own sake, check the following links:

    I used to work there, Andre Muran cut throats his employess and bounces their cheques.He also has his own staff pay for supplies for the resort.I hope someone lets Andre know the industrial revolution is over.It's hard to believe in todays age men like Andre and his sidekick Wayne Otis Brown are able to conduct business.A warning to any investors stay away as he will steal your money and his HAFF deal trying to get capacity letters saying it is all for charity is a lie.Andre Muran will steal it the charity is for the Muran family and we all know the Muran family doesn't need any charity.Just a warning to everybody beware of chateauworld stay away from them they are theifs the company stole money from me that is why I left.

    We have invested with Elevations Inc. who have closed offices and have defaulted on the interest that they owe the investors as well as the mortgagees on the title deeds.

    We are now informed that the first mortgagee on the land title has applied for foreclosure and that a recent valuation indicated a much lower value than the report distributed by Andre & Theo Muran

    We are investors in Elevations also and are very concerned that we will not get our deposit back.
    We are in the process of having a lawyer look at our papers to see if something can be done.

    Is anybody else out there looking at the same thing? Maybe we could get a class action going against Elevations and Theo Muran.

    You can contact us at [protected]
    We would be interested in knowing of other investors who are looking to see about getting their money back.

    I think that Andre Muran should be charged and thrown into prison for the rest of his worthless life. This man is nothing but a con artist who will only screw people out of their hard money with his lying and crooked ways. To bad some one doesn't have the balls to find Andre Muran the ### and beat the living crap out of him, even drill out his kneecaps with an electric drill and then tar and feather the ###.

    If I ever find Andre Muran I will beat the living crap out of him and let him know that the majority of people that he has screwed over feel the same way. As well I will tell him that he will more than likely end up in prison and I hope that they make him the "Prison ###" once they find out who Andre Muran is.

    It would as well be deserving if the castrated him in prison as well and make sure that they make him take it up his butt and in his mouth on a daily basis. What goes around comes around and Andre Muan deserves what he gets as he is about the lowest form of life on the planet.

    I've talked to a real estate agent and they say that all of banff gates mountain lodge and chateau canmore resort units are into foreclosure so all members should stop paying their members fees because the don't own them any more.

    I absolutely agree with you. It's hard to believe that people actually get away with this sort of stuff. He runs various companies under various names in order to try and avoid any trace of the what he's doing. His time will come though and as we all know, Karma's a ### and it's gonna get him big time. I'd love to see him in jail.
