A Slippery Con Artist — Liam Byrne

A Slippery Con Artist — Liam Byrne

THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, Liam Byrne is a professional scammer in Calgary. He put on a small local business event called EDCE siting he wants to help local business but does not pay bills. Liam was caught red-handed not paying bills and somehow always lies and runs off so he can not pay. He is a flat broke hustler hiding behind a corporation and rips off sponsors and vendors by putting on garbage events. Have spoken to several businesspeople and sponsors and they have been scammed money also. Total scam artist. When confronted he gets VERY upset and claim you are in the wrong. Please be cautious and do not do business with this professional con artist. Be extra diligent when conducting business with Liam Byrne if not avoiding him.

    I’m an event host that has hosted Liam’s events. There has never been an issue with payment. Articles like this are the things that jade our industry. Disgusting.

    EVERYBODY FROM THE 313, YOUR PAC, HES PAC, NO PAC, NONE

    If you new Lee you;d never say this about him. He’s an amazing person.

  4. TysonMay 8, 2019 at 7:20 AM

    This site is pathetic.

  5. AhmedMay 8, 2019 at 7:19 AM

    Liam is an incredible boss. I’ve woked for him for 3 years.

  6. PeteMay 2, 2019 at 8:56 AM

    This is redic. Liam’s an awesome guy, known him for 15 years.

    this website is an embarrassment to whoever created it

  7. ShawnApril 24, 2019 at 5:34 AM

    What is this!!! Oh my lord, whoever wrote this clearly doesn’t know Liam. He is the one of the most kind hearted and wonderful people I’ve ever met. And as for the conferences he did a few years ago, they were awesome! LIAM BRING BACK EDCE!! Everyone wants you to!!!

    • JuliaApril 30, 2019 at 4:49 PM

      Bring it back

  8. LiamApril 23, 2019 at 2:47 PM

    Great news everyone! Again thank you for the support – our investigator has been able to not only identify the individual but has also found a history of prescription drug abuse by the individual. There are very few steps left before they become infuriated by reading this, make some ridiculous comments (with the same grammar and spelling errors as they have been since the start) and we are able to charge them.

    Again, thank you so much for the support.

    Stay successful.

    Hey folks! Just updating this quickly as it appears the individual who wrote this article has decided to start posting again (after a year). I also received a really creepy text message from someone the other day asking about my personal finances and taxes (as you’ll see in the response to Tom M about the CRA, clearly the same person).

    Don, Tom and everyone else I sincerely thank you for your support and faith. Again, to anyone reading this, if you’re a victim of cyberbullying be sure to reach out to someone if you feel threatened or like you “just cant handle it”. I’ll even take time out of my day to chat with you if I can help. You can easily find me on LinkedIn, Instagram or Facebook.

    Stay successful everyone!

    • BritneyApril 20, 2019 at 4:40 PM

      That is frightening; what number of individuals have you not paid for these events to transpire?

      • LiamApril 23, 2019 at 10:56 AM

        None. The individual writing this isn’t someone we’ve done business with. It is a stalker. Our private investigator has identified them and is just waiting for them to make a mistake so we can charge them.

  10. DonApril 10, 2019 at 4:58 AM

    This is proposterous. I’ve been a professional colleague and personal friend of Liam for over a decade. There is no credibility in this article at all whatsoever and anyone that knows Liam personally would laugh if they read this.

    • BruceApril 20, 2019 at 4:51 PM

      Don stop fooling people. Liam is working hard casting doubt on his past business activities. Liam has cheated people. Why isn’t any of his past organizations still around if he’s so successful. For what reason hasn’t he paid suppliers and venues. Call any venue in Calgary, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Halifax. They will disclose to you that Liam Byrne is on the blacklist for hosting events in Canada and United States.

      • LiamApril 22, 2019 at 12:45 PM

        Also I’d like to point out that the writing and grammar of this reply is physically identical to the main post and the only other negative posts on this entire feed.

        Which means everyone here thinks this is insane except for the one person who is still stalking me 2.5 years later under a dozen names

      • LiamApril 22, 2019 at 12:40 PM

        My last business ventures don’t exists because I failed them. That’s actually part of a keynote that I give and was the driving force behind creating EDCE. So that I could learn from my mistakes. And that I did. Along with thousands of others that attended. I don’t hide my ventures. They’re all on my LinkedIn profile. I’m easy to find as I’m sure you know.

        I also only held events in half the cities you named.

        Cheers GB

  11. Tom MMarch 26, 2019 at 10:22 AM

    get your facts right
    1. he does not live in Calgary
    2.if he doesn’t pay his bills then how has he had the same house for over 4 years?
    3. again if hes flat broke the how can he support a family of 5 by himself?

    • Sophie D.March 30, 2019 at 8:47 AM

      Call CRA

  12. LiamAugust 31, 2018 at 5:38 AM

    Hi everyone, Liam here again!

    As you are all well aware, cyberbullying is wrong and if you feel like you’re a victim there are lots of resources to help you. (except against this silly tabloid website). Bullying.ca is a great one if you’re under 16.

    In response to the most recent comment: I hope everyone can see that the only person hiding behind the anything is the individual who continues to hide behind the veil of the internet to cyber-bully my company and me. I don’t have “lots of company names” and I’m being quite up-front about who I am when I write this – maybe whoever you are, you should too?

    In any case, emailing mwco.bbb.org contacts the Ontario office (someplace we’ve never operated), although I’m assuming where this person is from? If you have a legitimate concern you should contact the BBB head office, but they’ll, of course, ask for a record of communication between my company and yours ensuring that you attempted to resolve whatever issue it was before they accept your complaint – which won’t exist.

    This is why there are no complaints against us at the BBB.

    Lastly, just going on a bit of logic – how would your “attorney” contacting our SPONSORS lead whoever you are to the conclusion that WE need to pay up front? Sponsors pay us, not the other way around. And Sponsors always pay us up front.

    Again, I’ll ask that whoever you are please reach out in person to me or my team on LinkedIn or email so we can discuss what it is that has caused you to be so upset.

    Cheers everyone, and don’t let people push you around!

  13. Call BBBAugust 26, 2018 at 12:10 PM

    Get paid upfront. Liam Byrne is a scum sucking bottom feeder that does not pay. Known to hide behind various bogus names and companies. Attorney has called all sponsors and event venues regarding Liam. Gathered from multiple references across Canada that he does not pay. Liam Byrne is a master manipulator who will tell you what you want to hear. Email info (at) mwco.bbb.org if you’re a victim.

  14. LiamJuly 10, 2018 at 6:31 AM

    Hi folks,
    Just a quick update – if you’d like to know whether or not EDCE paid its Calgary bill please call The Theatre Junction Grand where the event was held. I’m sure they’ll be able to let you know that there is no outstanding balance. The number there is (403) 205-2922

    They also have a fantastic restaurant called The Workshop. I highly recommend it!

  15. LiamJune 6, 2018 at 9:11 AM

    After many months, the culprit of this weird and invasive article has fiannly surfaced. There are very few people that are aware that I worked with the consulting firm named below. However the individual who has relentlessly commented (with the same grammar errors) has called me out for my work with this firm as they have been wronged, just as I was, and just as a hundred other people on payroll and in business dealings. I do not support any decisions by this firm, and if you are someone who has been damaged by this company, I am offering my service to help you be indemnified as I have been through proper courses of action. This post however, incredibly damaging to my career and family. I have never done anything in my life to harm you or anyone else. If my working for someone and (most likely as your boss) caused you harm, I’m so very sorry and am happy to help. Please reach out on LinkedIn. However, I must state that due to the negative impacts of this resiculous article, and your obvious knowledge of the “MacDonald” dealings, I have hired a private investigator to look into this. My suggestion would be to request to have this article removed. People who are able to access my personal images on social media pose a massive threat to us all. Stay safe out there.

    The slippery con artist is this craaaaazy dude that runs this website.

  17. Wpg event attendeeApril 23, 2018 at 3:13 PM

    He also came to Winnipeg and I guess is doing this across the country, very poorly DONE events and his main marketing speaker from Toronto also seem to be a slick car salesman trying to sell his advertising by leaving sign up sheets on chairs and a call to action for a back of the room deal. Not worth the money.

    • LiamMay 18, 2018 at 10:10 AM

      Great grammar. You seem to be making the exact same grammatical errors as the person who posted this article. Weird eh?

      Crazy stalking psychotic human.

    • SponsorApril 25, 2018 at 4:38 PM

      Untrustworthy especially in business and financial matters

      • LiamMay 18, 2018 at 10:06 AM

        Oh you’re a sponsor? Which sponsor would that be?

  18. LiamApril 21, 2018 at 5:28 AM

    LOL – citing** – claims** – Also I don’t live in Calgary. “Flat Broke Hustler”…. lol.

  19. run!April 9, 2018 at 12:10 PM

    Liam frauded people from Halifax with a different scheme

    • LiamMay 18, 2018 at 10:08 AM

      Oh, which scheme would that be? Could you please elaborate and possibly provide the joint stocks or corporate registration information (which is readily available online) for the company that I was “scheming with”?

      • Run!May 24, 2018 at 3:42 PM

        The business with your partner Ralston Macdonald. Remember not to pay employees, sellers and not refund students after canceling a certification course. Liam, who are you trying to cheat? Go get a real job!

      • this place is dumbMay 22, 2018 at 10:29 AM

        EDCE is an amazing business. Who ever made this damned slippery con artist is messed up in the head.

      • kadenMay 22, 2018 at 10:21 AM

        the person who wrote that was an idiot. EDCE is a great company
