Former BDC Bank Executive Scamming Little Old Ladies

Former BDC Bank Executive Scamming Little Old Ladies

THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, a fat pos named Peter Corbiere of Niagara on the Lake and his tuxedo-garbed partner Gardner McBride of Stella have been scamming people for years. Peter used to be a big honcho at the government owned BDC bank where he would promise loans if you paid him an advance fee. Peter “left” the BDC so he could continue his scamming ways in the private sector. Nowadays Peter and Gardner are swindling little old ladies and gullible business owners of their money. Nik, do you think the Hamilton mafia or the police will get them first?

    I will be there!

  2. ThomasFebruary 16, 2018 at 6:08 PM

    I understand the apprehension and suspect somebody will be there from Peter Corbiere’s camp. But we don’t need to plan or plot. That’s his game. All we have to do is tell the truth and expose him for the scammer he is. If your concerned about tomorrow, skip the event and file a report to with the Niagara police. That said, I hope you do join us.

    Michelle, there are ways not to worry!!!!

  4. MichelleFebruary 16, 2018 at 9:42 AM

    Peter may not show up but I’m sure some of his allies will … acting as victims just to get the inside scoop of what people are saying, plotting, and planning!

  5. ThomasFebruary 15, 2018 at 12:51 PM

    For clarity, I DID NOT invite Peter Corbiere to the event (we are not exactly on speaking terms). That said, I am quite certain he is aware of this site.

  6. ThomasFebruary 14, 2018 at 5:06 PM

    Okay, just to confirm: the Scammed by Peter Corbiere event is this Saturday (February 17th) in the Jack Astros lounge area. Wear RED to identify yourself (cuz it’s Valentine’s Day and we love Peter Corbiere – NOT!). The address Jack Astor address is 400 Ontario St, St Catherine’s. We’ve invited Peter Corbiere, along with the police and media. Let’s hope Peter Corbiere shows up with our money!!!

    And I agree with Concerned Consumer about using caution before sharing too much about our involvement with Peter Corbiere. That said, Peter Corbiere is a coward so I suspect we are safe.

    Btw, if you’re wondering about my over use of Peter Corbiere’s full name it’s so google elevates this page. If nothing else, I want to warn other potential victims that Peter Corbiere is a scam artist.

  7. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 13, 2018 at 8:04 AM

    Actually to confirm Feb 17th is a Saturday.

  8. Power in NumbersFebruary 13, 2018 at 7:59 AM

    So sorry Thomas, the 17th is a Saturday. My apologies.!!!

  9. Power in NumbersFebruary 13, 2018 at 7:55 AM

    Karma, thank you for arranging. Thomas, I believe it’s for Friday at 7pm not Saturday. BDC can’t have another scandal like the one from 2012 after Paul Kirchner and it’s more than BDC, there is another government agency and a local lawyer

  10. karmaFebruary 13, 2018 at 7:26 AM

    Fellow victims. i will be coming and have been following this site. just needed a younger person to show me how to comment :)
    I know the owner of jacks and spoke to him. He is getting extra security that night so we wont have to worry about any unwelcome guests. As it turns out.
    and the security will be needed if Peter shows up and they need to have me pulled off him.
    This guy will stop at nothing to get a dollar and the government of Canada (BDC) is hiding from it.
    disgusting. BDC boost about building up small business yet watch as it ruin them. Great way to spend tax payers money. OUR money. PS after i got scammed by Peter and lost my business it was CRA that closed me down. Oh the irony!!!

  11. ThomasFebruary 13, 2018 at 6:11 AM

    I encourage you all to file a report with the Niagara Regional Police as they have an active investigation open on Peter’s dealings. As I understand it, Niagara has jurisdiction since it is where Peter lives and receives the funds from his scams. If you have filed a police report in another jurisdiction, please let the Niagara police know so they can connect the dots.

    I’ll be at Jack Astor’s on Saturday and will share my story and further details that I would prefer not to post here.

  12. Power in NumbersFebruary 13, 2018 at 5:13 AM

    I think BDC which is government is responsible as if they knew and didn’t do anything to protect the public and allowed
    Him to go out and continue to use his BDC credentials to lure people knowing such. Furthermore Peter was also with another government program who referred him so looks like a big thing here.

  13. Power in NumbersFebruary 13, 2018 at 4:54 AM

    Not a super hero, BDC got back to me and basically told me same thing. I think when we meet we will discuss exposing to media as I have some leads on which outlet to go to. Also we should all report to anti/fraud too as the scam includes like you said people in various positions that help with the facade. He has affected many others that may not have posted comment here. The police have been contacted and have file open so we may want to all join together.

  14. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 12, 2018 at 4:24 PM

    There are victims across Ontario so not sure if everyone can make it and just a note of caution that Peter and his affiliates may be aware of this website and postings on him so need to be cautious that they are not posing as a victim here.

  15. BevFebruary 12, 2018 at 1:53 PM

    Hi, I was scammed also and will be at Jack Astors 7pm. Hope to get some answers and i hear some people can help that are attending. thats great :)

  16. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 12, 2018 at 6:52 AM

    There are victims all across Ontario and in other provinces, and the scam/fraud is beyond Peter. It includes a network of people he is associated with to help lure and provide false agreements so it looks legitimate. I have reason to believe that the culprits know about this article and site so I caution that they may be posing as victims and that is why we need to move off this platform. The goods news is that the Police are aware of this article as well. I wouldn’t share detail info initially until you feel confident that they are real victims. Do some due diligence and also report to Canadian Anti-fraud.

  17. pissed offFebruary 9, 2018 at 2:56 PM

    i would also like to meet and likely have the most Intel and the best solution to help get ALL our money back.

  18. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 9, 2018 at 12:07 PM

    Earlier I posted the link of a picture of Peter Corbiere. His picture is the second pic from the left; the overweight guy with glasses.

    Here is a link to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre below. The fraud is more than these two. It is a team of people from those that lure and refer us to him and to fake imposters to help keep his scam going.

    He has used business networks and events to look for prey.

  19. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 9, 2018 at 6:56 AM

    I have another company who has reported to police and we can press charges. If you google Paul Kirchner also ex BDC he was criminally charged as well so it can be done. I have also filed a complaint with BDC Ombudsmanas he is still using his credentials to lure people to trust him as BDC is a government I think its time to expose him within the community and in the media as well as press charges. We need to ban together and expose him so that he can never walk within his community and industry again to do this. I need everyone to respond if they are interested to come together to bring him down and move off this platform to private communication. I am interested and wanted to thank the original person who actually informed The Dirty as curious as to his last comment on the article about whether the Hamilton Police would get him first or the Mafia as this suggests to me he has been reported to Hamilton Police as well he must have pissed off someone associated with the Mafia. Please let me know if you are interested by replying you are and I will provide next steps. We may have a good case of a group action and as I have said there is always power in numbers. Its time!!!!!

    • ThomasFebruary 9, 2018 at 4:43 PM

      I’m in!!! How about a ‘scammed by Peter Corbiere’ pub night on February 17th, 7pm at Jack Astot’s at 400 Ontario St, St. Catharines. Wear red. Police and media are welcome!!!!

      • pissed offFebruary 11, 2018 at 10:10 AM

        im in. see you there. i have solutions for everyone and a lot of Intel to share.

    • MichelleFebruary 9, 2018 at 11:14 AM

      Yes very interested…. how do we move off of this platform to something more private?

  20. Concerned ConsumerFebruary 8, 2018 at 11:58 AM

    Here’s a pic of him giving a speech about business planning and funding for BDC. Check it out in this link.

    More and more victims are coming forward. Continue to check in every few days. He is a fixture in Niagara falls. He and his wife Deborah Paine Corbiere are active in the community pretending to donate to local charities for appearances, but scamming people on the other hand,. Does anyone know if his wife really is even sick? What are the police doing about it as some said they reported to police. Do we all have to report separately? There is another place to report Canadian Anti-fraud Centre.
    Anyone interested in banning together to report him to media, remember power in numbers!

  21. MichelleFebruary 8, 2018 at 7:51 AM

    How do I post a picture of this guy Peter to your site?

    • ThomasFebruary 8, 2018 at 7:21 PM

      You have his picture? Amazing! He hides himself well. I’ve searched and searched. Not sure how to attach it here, but perhaps they’ll publish a link.

      Peter needs to be in jail. Michelle, you say you know him. Is his wife ill, or part of this thing? Do you know this Gardner guy up mentioned? I’ve never heard of him. I’m trying to untangle this thing.

      • MichelleFebruary 9, 2018 at 11:18 AM

        I sent a picture to this site but not sure if they’ll post it. There were a number of years we fell out of communication and re-connected just recently. I don’t believe his wife is sick. As for his partner I’ve never heard of him.

    • Also Baffled by BSFebruary 8, 2018 at 5:29 PM

      I am not sure of how to post a picture. However, I’m sure most, if not all would like to actually see the face of someone so brazen as Mr. Corbiere. So PLEASE keep trying to get it posted. It seems as though legal proceedings would be the most direct way to get to him and have any chance to recoup your hard earned money. It would be a costly procedure, but very embarrassing for some one who seems to be a “Pillar of the Comminity” who is so actively involved with their church and as significant contributor to The Niagra-on-the-Lake Historical Society. As for Gardner McBride…it would be interesting to see what were to come of a sit-in on the front step of his wife’s art gallery in Historical Annapolis,MD

  22. Power in NumbersFebruary 5, 2018 at 6:58 AM

    Hi Everyone:

    Please continue to pass this article on have them post. We are going to speak with someone to see what can be done. I can not believe that he used his credentials at BDC to defraud people and yes we too were told delays was due to his wife’s illness and he is married but I can tell you she isn’t on her death bed as he claimed.

  23. Baffled by BSFebruary 4, 2018 at 12:35 PM

    Yes Peter got us two. Hopefully more people will post so we can make it worth the time to have the police investigate him. He should be charged with fraud.

  24. ThomasFebruary 3, 2018 at 6:14 PM

    I guess it’s time I faced the reality that it was all a scam. I was so hoping Peter was legit, despite all the bizarreness of his excuses, including the whole sick wife thing. I wonder if he is even marred. I feel like a fool.

    • Power in NumbersFebruary 5, 2018 at 8:33 AM


      We all feel like fools as we trusted the fact that he was an Ex-BDC senior Partner but like Paul Kirchner; also a BDC executive who was convicted in 2012; who would of thought? Keep on checking in as more news enfolds. Email this link to others you feel in your circle or community or was referred to that may be victims as there are power in numbers.

  25. MichelleJanuary 27, 2018 at 1:50 PM

    I’ve recently been scammed by Peter Corbiere…. and the worst part is that he’s been a good friend for over 20 years. There was a huge level of trust with this guy and I feel sick that I fell for such a despicable scam. Not sure what to do other than call the police…. but really what can they do?

    • Not a super heroFebruary 12, 2018 at 7:21 PM

      I was scammed also and contacted the BDC as he was an employee of theres. I heard that the BDC caught him and didn’t fire and prosecute him but asked him to tender his resignation. They did this to save all there jobs as altamently they are responsible for his actions. So to save there own jobs they let peter walk out the front door and start a fake lending company so he can take more money from hard working people. The BDC have a responsibility to all victims. He still is in contact with members and in fact agents of the BDC still refer peter in secret to clients. This is deep and the BDC needs to be investigated. Since this was exposed upper management of the BDC have all switched departments. Total abuse of tax payers money.

    • Big PunFebruary 7, 2018 at 2:30 PM

      Peter ripped me off thousands

    • Concerned ConsumerJanuary 31, 2018 at 11:54 AM

      Just discovered this and wondered how many people are victims. We too are victims. Hopefully more people will post and we can have power in numbers. Keep checking in!
