Meyer Asset Management - Richard Cayne - Meyer International - investment scam

Richard Cayne is a financial advisor who was in Tokyo, Japan until August 2010. After his company, Meyer Asset Management, was given a warning by the Japanese Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission, he moved his operations to Bangkok, Thailand.

Richard Cayne has caused a lot of trouble for his clients. He aggressively marketed a fraudulent land-banking investment in Thailand called Royal Siam Trust. RST was sold under many false pretenses ($500 million in company assets, company history dating back to 1955, possible for investors to withdraw at any time). None of it was true. When investors inquire about their investment or ask for their money back, they get nothing but lies and stalling tactics from Richard Cayne.

I strongly advise anyone who is considering doing business with Richard Cayne, Meyer Asset Management, or Meyer International to stay away. In my opinion, he is not a reliable person and seems to have difficulty telling the truth.

I was deceived by Richard Cayne and his Meyer Assets Management. I lost one million yen. On top of that, he used my credit card details without my permission and left me with a bill of eighty thousand yen. I had to cancel that card. He is not a sincere person. The feeling of being duped is terrible. It took me a lot of effort not to commit suicide. Be warned.

I sure thought that everyone would figure out by now that RC would do anything and everything to never give a penny or yen back for RST. He's a pro at that.
Blames everyone but himself!!!
That WSB land in Trat is basically worthless to 200 people cut even if he did blame his ex partners.

Yep, that WSB land banking website is a circus of lies. It is painfully obvious Richard Cayne is behind it to deflect his RST crime and point fingers. It simply has to be a former disgruntled ex-client of Daniel Kennedy that went running back to RC and the author and its administrator. Just one lie alone and you can dismiss everything else. I agree, most of the trash on the internet in favor of Richard Cayne is written by him and this person and perhaps another. I cannot wait until the truth comes blasting out.

You know what I love about all this and knowing Richard Cayne for 15 years...make that knew.
1. I know he is a compulsive liar and crook (in Thailand now).
2. The one that pissed-consumers me off the most... He is now portraying himself and his family as victims and plastered it all over the web with not one shred of proof. I love the bit about him and his wife getting phone calls at his home in the middle of the night when I know *** well he hasn't had a home phone since he left Japan 5 years ago..even then he still wouldn't pick up his mobile in the wee hours of the night (if you actually had the #)... nor the second one he uses for his seedy second social life (this is a fact just ask him to empty his pockets in person). Trust me, 99% of the things I read over the last year he planted online for himself and I know for a fact is complete horse *** that he wrote or told someone (***) to write...

JOHN P. FORMICHELLA "Our clients receive a seamless service across our practice groups and a relentless commitment to excellence from our attorneys" - quotation on Mr. Formichella's profile on the Blumenthal Richter & Sumet website.
Is that a relentless commitment to helping their clients steal?

We got nothing to do with Richard Cayne but while doing a search on Sevaan Simon of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (current) and Kagoshima, Japan (UK English teacher) I can guarantee Sevaan Simon is a spamming troll and a former or current client of Mr Cayne (The Royal Siam Co.). Perhaps on some sort of payroll or shady deal to spam and attack others. I also know for a fact Mr Simon ripped off some mates of mine and works with Indians in India, and after a look for 15 minutes flat all for sure work for this Richard Cayne in Bangkok. Just some proper FYI if you want to know how the real slandering wanks tie into each other.

Please stay well clear of this crook in Bangkok. Take it from a guy (my family) he robbed... most posts are legit and perhaps other victims of Richard Cayne and Meyer Asset. His lawyers are also gun for hire criminals that cover up his past crimes and use his lies and abuse with impunity...and that is just the tip of this criminal empire. This is not defamation...this is the bloody truth!

I could care less if kennedy is an anti-semite or not and cayne hates him and vice has nothing to do with what I was sold (RST) or the case, imho. Plus, if Cayne got Greg Pitt "convicted" of ?... why have they (rc) not been able to get the WSB land?????????

I've known Dan for years. He's no "Anti-Semite". He simply hates Richard Cayne and his never-ending lies + the hired goons working for him that write the planted *** on the Internet to deflect.
Some people seem to believe anything they read on the Internet these days. The bad guys sure use it and their victims eat it.
That said, I hear the Hong Kong bank knows RST was Cayne's land banking scam and locked a nice portion of the swindled cash.
I wonder who did this?????????????

Whatever you do, stay the *** away from Richard Cayne and his "companies", Meyer Asset Management / Meyer International and Asia Wealth Group. I can't say this strongly enough - and tell your friends.
The long and short of it: He has scammed hundreds of investors (expats and Japanese alike) out of thousands of dollars in his *** land banking investment known as Royal Siam Trust.
Seriously, be warned. Do not do business with Richard Cayne.

@ Richard Cayne - Well now we know you have full blown out lied about owning Royal Siam Trust .. can you give us something else besides the racist rant BS? You broke serious Japanese financial disclosure laws and should be prosecuted if you have the courage to come back to Japan. And now, we all really know why you're in Thailand. Your words, emails and postings ( and minions ) are worthless.

This A-hole made a fool of me. I don't care what anyone says... Richard, take that Happy Holiday card and shove it up your fat lying ***. I would have more respect for you as a human if you just came clean. You won't. F*** You and your greedy family and lawyers.

Thailand always have been, still is, and will be, a haven/paradise for criminals, where else can you live
and operate with impunity, bribe the locals, be it government, police or just anybody, with small
amount of money? live in obscurity with fake credentials, or better yet, marry a local to act as a front
to your dirty deeds? be able to transfer and receive large amounts of money with minimal risk?
only in the land of smiles.... and I know, if I was a criminal, I'd be setting my home here too...

The Anti Semite Daniel Edward Kennedy residing in Osaka Japan also operating under name Gage Morita cooperating and paid by Gregory Pitt ( a UK individual pretending to pretending to be a lawyer with his virtual law firm website Mackenzie Smith in Bangkok Thailand ) has posted online smear campaigns at this website and other blog posts; see for absolute factual details about his threats, abuse and anti semitic remarks

I'm really surprised that this guy hasn't fallen on a knife yet. He claimed to be working in his clients' best interests, but the truth is that Richard Cayne stole the RST money and doesn't want to give it back, or has spent it already. He hides out in Thailand, doing the seedy things that subhuman trolls like himself do there while he, his wife (Akiko Kitamura Cayne) and a few of his cronies (John Formichella, Kurisu, and some Thai dude old enough to *** dust) live off the proceeds of his victims.
Most people figure he took the RST money, spent what he could and shoved the rest into his BS "Asia Wealth Group" offshore holding company.
Where's the money, Richard?
