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?

    it has been confirmed that Peter has been officially arrested. just wanted everyone to know

    • Concerned ConsumerMay 6, 2019 at 7:20 PM

      Karma. I heard. He was arrested April 11th. I am so happy to hear. It is so bitter sweet but at least hopefully he will get jail time, have a record and now all over the internet and shunned in his community. I heard he had to surrender his passport as well as report every week to the police as part of his bail condition until he stands trial. Hope you are well. Thank you, Don and Ty for your perseverance!

    Dazed & Confused / Natasha: Lawyers are suggesting we limit discussions outside of the vetted group for the time being. So as not to leave you hanging, I think the best bet is for you to file a report with the Fraud division of the Niagara Regional Police. Good luck.

  3. Dazed and ConfusedDecember 16, 2018 at 1:01 PM

    Hello Thomas and Karma, ok thank you; can someone please contact me this week and we can go from there as I am being asked by my lawyer to pick a direction.

  4. ThomasDecember 8, 2018 at 2:04 PM

    Dazed and Confused: Peter is most definitely monitoring this site, following the twitter site and has made multiple attempts to gain access to the email community. We are aware of what handles he is using but we will not share that here for obvious reasons. When you make contact with Karma, there will be a vetting exercise that you go through to ensure you are not Peter. Do not share your real name until you feel confident in us and we’ll do the same. It is not a perfect process but it is the best we can do. Beside, truth is our best weapon.

  5. Dazed and ConfusedNovember 30, 2018 at 9:54 AM

    Hey Karma, I am tried to reply to your message but for some reason it won’t post is there an email address or number I can reach someone on? My email is [email protected]

  6. Dazed and ConfusedNovember 12, 2018 at 7:35 AM

    Hello everyone, I just came across this site after spending months and months frustrated with Peter C’s lies and delays. It seems like a lot of people are in the same boat as me and I am now thinking this is a fraud!!! Has he actually produced money for anyone on here? Are people taking legal? What should I do? I see that posts are from the June time frame; what has happened since then?

    • KarmaNovember 26, 2018 at 3:53 PM

      Hello dazed. Sorry to here about what has happened. We have launched an investigation and are told the walls are closing in. Our research states that the BDC is also deep involved and that is why it’s taking much longer. Would you be interested in sharing your story direct by another means of contact? It could help your situation out.
      Let us know as we can fill you in.

      • Dazed and ConfusedNovember 29, 2018 at 8:47 AM

        Hello Karma, I am willing to share my story stressful as it may be. Firstly and I think this is a valid question; how do we not know that Peter C. is not on this board or others gather names for a big suit as I have been threatened multiple times for defamation if I go public. As well I see from the message board below that you have a twitter account but I do not use twitter; so is there am email group or can I call someone. I am sure that you guys have questions for due diligence on me but I am interested in talking so is there a number or email I can get in contact with. My email is [email protected].

      • Dazed and ConfusedNovember 28, 2018 at 4:15 PM

        Hello Karma, yes I would be willing to talk; a few questions first. How do we know that Peter is not on these message boards or has someone on here? Has anyone on here actually received funding or received their deposits back? I am open to meet with someone anywhere in Ontario, is there a number I can call to arrange this?

  7. KarmaJune 17, 2018 at 8:58 AM

    Hello all, i have heard from another victim that Garner McBride is 100% in on the scam. They caught him red handed telling 2 people the completely different story. Garner is pretending he is also a victim but he is not. he is in on the scam as well. Be ware of that PoS also.

  8. More Peter victimdJune 11, 2018 at 4:35 PM

    Wow. My family member has been scammed by Peter. How do I find more information or get in contact with other victims?

    • KarmaJune 12, 2018 at 10:12 AM

      sorry to hear this – We’ve created a twitter account @ScammedByPeterC
      once you go on that we can contact you. i have all the info you need to help get your friend the justice they need.

  9. Broken ArrowJune 4, 2018 at 10:23 AM

    This guy is a total scammer and so are all his partners. What I don’t understand is why people haven’t made formal fraud complaints to the police. I filed a complaint and it will be turned into formal charges. This guy is nothing but a fraud. And I think McBride and all the other guys are the same. Just one big scam to suck money out of people. I have him running scared now because he knows the police are closing in. I’m going to get as many people together when it comes time for his trial so that we sink him permanently.

    • KarmaJune 6, 2018 at 6:45 AM

      Broken Arrow – thanks for the message. some people have filed reports with police but we need more. some people are reluctant to as they think it wont help. but it will. BA can you contact the twitter site and perhaps we can contact each other? i have some very important Intel to share.

      PS all – people has taken another deposit from someone as recent as 3 weeks ago. he still operates.

  10. PCClubApril 19, 2018 at 10:54 AM

    Is there a coordinated effort in place to stop PC? To simply talk will not stop him. Is there another meeting happening to compare notes and coordinate police reports to see best actions to take SAMSI and friends from our marketplace and see this all come to and end in a way that ensures their “funds” safekeeping is not a safe haven for our money they have taken.

    • Me TooApril 20, 2018 at 7:18 PM

      Connect on Twitter and you’ll get next steps

  11. ThomasApril 14, 2018 at 4:50 PM

    We’ve created a twitter account @ScammedByPeterC. We will post news and insights about Peter as they become available. You can also use the site to Direct Message (DM) your fellow victims.

  12. Me TooApril 14, 2018 at 1:59 PM

    Hi Karma, Maybe you could cut and paste the link?

  13. NotfarfromyouApril 14, 2018 at 5:55 AM

    Also cannot find the facebook page. Update.

    • KarmaApril 14, 2018 at 2:37 PM

      Notfarfromyou – try that facebook link i added today. im hoping that works.
      if it doesnt i will try something else

  14. PCClubApril 13, 2018 at 6:01 PM

    can you reach out re current legal actions happening and adding to. Must be stopped.Will keep checking….time to take action.

    • Another victimApril 27, 2018 at 4:24 PM

      If you could add me as well. Kept my story in far too long

    • KarmaApril 14, 2018 at 10:27 AM

      Hello PCCub, thanks for the message. We need more people to come forward on the action. a lot of victims are not doing anything. We need more people to contact the same people at BDC and MP office. Plus the Ombudsmen. I have all the contact info. With the recent news articles that went out and radio interviews we now have traction. we cant lose that.

  15. SauceyApril 2, 2018 at 3:21 PM

    I’m a member of the family, I recently had this linked to me. I’m not here to defend a guilty man. I’m simply here to say, that as a member of his family I’m severely disappointed. He had also been taking advantage of his brothers and sisters, my parents, my aunts and uncles, promising us huge investment income for investing large sums of money with him and when we were in dire straights, was rarely to be found. He’s hurt a lot of people, and I’m sure now that he’s caught. He’ll get what he deserves, and hopefully we’ll get some money, or at least some peace of mind in the families case. We honestly had no idea what he was up to.

    • Another victimApril 27, 2018 at 4:11 PM

      It’s so sad to read that even ones own family are prey. I can tell you Peter single handled with Gartner McBride played us with lies for over a year. Destroyed two families and a very promising company. Many people hurt bad. Many had enough on them both for a very long time
      Horribly family lies, that I won’t get into here. Seems like most of not all victimums through a break of trust. Fairly serious offence in itself, are coming together. The truth sets all free. Well Victims free that is.

      • KarmaMay 3, 2018 at 7:50 AM

        sorry to hear about your story. i continue to hear that people are afraid to come forward for the embarrassment of being taken. Peter was a government employee and we all had no reason not to trust him. please come out and share your story as this continues to happen today. it will never stop unless we all talk. get to our twitter account so we can communicate and put this to rest once and for all.

      • KarmaMay 3, 2018 at 7:49 AM

      • Power in NumbersApril 30, 2018 at 9:02 AM

        Sorry to hear of your story. We all have been hurt and many of us have had our businesses destroyed because of Peter Corbiere and his lies and fraud, and yes it appears he even preys on his own family members. Please reach out to us via the twitter account and/or facebook.

    • KarmaApril 17, 2018 at 7:49 AM

      hello, can you reach out to the twitter account and we can communicate?

    • KarmaApril 3, 2018 at 8:11 AM

      Saucey, sorry to hear this. Peter is an ill man and the blame must be focused on the BDC as he was employed by them, and they new what he was doing. They could have stopped this years ago and got him the mental help he needed. So i would like to offer you my help so that you and the family can get restitution from the guilty party – BDC
      Would you be able/willing to reach out to us?

  16. OutherefarfromyouApril 2, 2018 at 4:02 AM

    How can we out here connect with the person who is leading this? Spoke with cbc too but would like an update about how police investigations are going and how we can all get our money how can thos man sleep at night? He has no problem carrying on with his lies.
    Nothing stops him apparently.

    • KarmaApril 3, 2018 at 8:08 AM

      Hello notfarfromyou – there is a facebook page called government scam. if you search that you can send a private message. let me know when you do so i can see if it works

      • Me TooApril 13, 2018 at 5:48 PM

        Hi there,
        I was not able to find anytbing on Facebook that made any sense. When I searched Government scam I got a page with videos, members from various other countries, and nothing that seemed relevant to Peter Corbiere. What am I doing wrong?

  17. karmaMarch 6, 2018 at 11:20 AM

    go on facebook and search “Government Scam”

  18. Me TooMarch 6, 2018 at 10:21 AM

    How do we find you on facebook?

  19. karmaMarch 6, 2018 at 7:58 AM

    Ok Government Scam thats great and i sent you an private message on Facebook
    Thanks so much

  20. Government ScamMarch 6, 2018 at 5:09 AM

    All i am on facebook

  21. karmaMarch 5, 2018 at 6:05 AM

    Over 30 companies came to the meeting. The stories are sickening to hear. Plus the people involved!!
    I was there at 7pm and did not leave until 1030pm.
    you gotta b12c1 – from the stories i have heard and the evidence gathered plus our own investigation, it is very evident that members of the BDC are involved. This is absolutely why the BDC has not done anything to rectify the situation. If they were not covering up the known issues then they would have terminated, prosecuted, and sentenced Peter. They did nothing and he walked out to continue his dirty deeds. All this evidence is coming out shortly as we have ALL had enough!!!

  22. OutherefarfromyouMarch 4, 2018 at 3:43 AM

    Can someone please post the outcome of the meeting. Out here far from you all and would really like an update. Just came across this thread now. Can someone contact me to keep in touch. Must become involved in this. Currently yes currently being had.

    • Me TooMarch 5, 2018 at 6:16 AM

      I also would like to know. I know it was suggested we add a link to our company, but I trust Peter and Gardiner are following it so I’d like to stay under the radar for a bit longer. Are there any other ideas as to how to connect this group off a public forum? Fyi, I have an interview with the CBC reporter today. I’ll let you all know what happens.

  23. you gotta b12c1March 3, 2018 at 12:46 PM

    I knew Peter back when he was at BDC. He was dirty then and apparently he is dirty now. There was no collusion with others at the bank. It was just Peter.

  24. jo joFebruary 25, 2018 at 1:05 PM

    I came across this site and i am in the middle of dealing with Peter now. I even had a conference call with this Garner guy. am i being scammed? i have provided a $15k retainer that is to be refunded if not satisfied? I will freak if i loss this deal!!!

    • Me TooMarch 4, 2018 at 2:26 PM

      Sadly, you are not likely to see this money. I too am a victim who has been taken for around 25K and promised the world. I’ve been suspicious since the beginning, but didn’t want to admit it myself and give up on Peter. I wish I came across this site before the meeting, I would have been there for sure! Thanks to the person who initiated this group.

    • OutherefarfromyouMarch 4, 2018 at 3:58 AM

      Middle of a “deal” here too. Must speak with someone who knows what the update is on this case. Anybody?

      • KarmaMarch 16, 2018 at 5:35 PM

        Had anyone talked to you Outtherefarfromyou?

      • karmaMarch 6, 2018 at 5:00 AM

        “Outtherefar – I can up date you on the case. i have the most Intel.
        Hi Nik, is there a way we can somehow connect to people? we all really need to talk so we can sort this mess out.

    • Power in NumbersFebruary 26, 2018 at 9:06 AM

      JoJo. We can only comment that we were all scammed and defrauded so you will have to draw your own conclusions.

  25. karmaFebruary 22, 2018 at 7:50 AM

    Kelly Bennett from CBC news is doing an active story on this so if anyone wants to contact her she can give you my contact info. that maybe a way for people to connect. She knows who i am.

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

    Angry as Hell, yes, we all feel the same. Please provide a link to your company so that we can contact you to hear your story and I encourage you to also file a report with the Niagara Police as that is where there is active file on him. Tell them you were defrauded by Peter Corbiere.

    The more people who report the more powerful the case against Peter. Perhaps Peter should have spent more time caring for his sick wife then out there scamming and defrauding people and businesses.

  27. Angry as HellFebruary 21, 2018 at 1:04 PM

    Hello everyone. I was screwed over by Peter Corbiere as well but gullibly believed that I was going to get my money back until I read this site last week!! Unfortunately I don’t live in Southern Ontario so was unable to attend the function last Saturday. I would still like to hear what happened and if there was some kind of resolution reached at the get together but none of you has posted since then. What I can offer to this discussion is that yes Peter Corbiere is married and yes his wife is sick and has been fighting cancer.

    • concerned consumerFebruary 21, 2018 at 1:39 PM

      Angry as Hell, if you can post a website here where we can go on to find your contact info and we can try to reach you as this site does not allow us to leave emails or phone numbers. If you have been defrauded, we recommend that you contact the Niagara Police as there is an open investigation on the matter and just say you want to file a report of fraud with the police. The more victims that come forward, the better we can get this guy!!!

  28. concerned consumerFebruary 21, 2018 at 11:35 AM

    Glad to have met you. If you see this post, please try to post on this site indicating perhaps a website of your company that we can find your contact info as we cant leave email or phone numbers here. I provided you incorrect email address earlier.

  29. MichelleFebruary 17, 2018 at 12:04 PM

    I will be there!

  30. 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.
