I have been gettin mails from a bunch of guys, scammed by a company called "Royal Garden VIllas " located in Bangalore.The majority of their customers are NRI's, Foreigners and Expats from the US, Canada and other countries.
Some customers have requested me to publish their views. So here goes....

> They have taken money from me promising construction of villa (RG Villas) in Bangalore within 8 months. That did not happen. I have contacted them in Vancouver, Canada. They are not responding to my calls. I am planning on filing a police report and getting a court order to freeze their assets. ***Investors - Proceed with Caution***

    Hello Sujoy and the infamous "anonymous" Mr. Bill Zack. The owner of the website he often boasts in his many anonymous names and fictitious characters he has posted around many blogs through out the web. What he doesn't boast is the fact he is in a legal lawsuit the company Royal Indian Raj for Slander, Defamation along with many other charges. What he doesn’t boast is his first website he posted was hosted in the USA and was ordered to be removed from the web at which time he decided to develop a new site with a new name in an Asian country (Do not want to name the country in an effort to not offend) that does not abide by Western laws. This country is popular for hosting websites of an illegal nature where the cowardly persons hiding from the laws of western society can post their unwanted business and lies. Mr. Zack is forced to host his website next to the illegal likes of child pornography and other low life beings.

    Royal Indian Raj and Royal Garden Villas are extremely well documented and anyone is welcome to visit our offices and do their own due-diligence to verify the facts. The company has been stuck in the same quagmire as over 400 other developers owning land in the North Bangalore quadrant. The governments that rule this area have been challenged to finalize the area development plan for well over 6 years now with the effects being that building permits have also been frozen and the development in the quadrant has been at a virtual standstill. These are the delays that have a few investors uneasy and some have chosen to fall into line with Mr. Bill Zack a former disgruntled communications officer of the company. The company is now happy to announce that after 4 years and 5 state governments the North Bangalore area plan is passed and the wait is almost over. Construction will commence this spring and all negative blogs posted by Mr. Zack and his few followers will become mute. On a final note, please be advised that if you follow the negative blogs of so called fraud and scamsters posted by Mr. Zack, you will find it goes at times back as far as spring of 2008. The company is in full operation, the doors are open and the company is not hiding. If the fraud and such that Mr. Zack is promoting was true and as one might say exposed, how is it that the company is in the open and not hiding???

    If anyone would like to verify the truth, please feel free to contact us at 604.685.7442.

    Royal Indian Raj cohorts Manoj Benjamin, Ravi Benjamin, Collins Benjamin, Maya Benjamin, Sherri Vaters and Anjula Benjamin are all the persons that make up the alleged "conglomerate" that these charlatans refer to as Royal Indian Raj International Corporation. Royal Indian Raj past and present principals Mnoj Benjamin, Ravi Benjamin, Collins Benjamin, Maya Benjamin, Sherri Vaters and Anjula Benjamin are little more than propaganda machines, whose purposes are to charm trusting souls out of their hard earned cash through the spewing of lies, fancy headlines and pseudo-intimidating nonsense.

    Why did Royal Indian Raj incorporate in the tax-dodging state of Nevada, which offers little protection to investors while affording maximum protection to its officers? Wise investors while come to many conclusions aside from the obvious.

    Royal Indian Raj International Corporation is a vehicle for greed and fraud and a plethora of other dark arts.

    Where are there offices? Not at 610 375 Water Street Vancouver as they claim, and what of the alleged Royal Indian Raj Bangalore office or Royal Indian Raj offices in London and New York?

    Why was Collins Benjamin , president of Royal Indian Raj International Corporation , and Managing Director of Royal Garden City Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. charged with Cheating and Breach of Trust in Bangalore India by the state of Karnataka? Copy and paste the following link to read more:

    When it comes to Royal Indian Raj International Corporation, Royal Garden Villas Resort Corp , Royal Garden City Ent. Pvt. Ltd. , Manoj Benjamin, Ravi Benjamin , Collins Benjamin , Sherri Vaters , Maya Benjamin and Anjula Benjamin , the key phrase is "Buyer Beware".

    Ask yourself this: How likely is it that the state of Karnataka, which has laid charges against Collins Benjamin , president of Royal Indian Raj International Corporation , is going to turn around and award building permits for Royal Garden Villas and Resort Bangalore to Royal Indian Raj , Collins Benjamin and CEO Manoj Benjamin? Not bloody likely.

    Any investor into royal indian raj international corporation ( riric )or royal garden villas and resort customers (rg villas) hoping to recover any money or to seek justice through criminal charges, should not delay in taking legal action. Stall tactics are the hallmark of the Benjamins modus operandi. Isn't it convenient to set up an alleged luxury villas construction project in north bangalore india when you know in advance that there will be lengthy and numerous delay with issuance of building permits due to BIAPPA approvals?

    If BIAPPA delays were the only issue then why would the state of karnataka arrest Collins Benjamin for Cheating and Breach of Trust, such as they did in late 2009? Since the state ultimately oversees the issuance of permits, if all was in order they would simply dismiss complaints against collins benjamin and royal garden city enterprises, knowing that the permits were holding up the project. The fact that the state of karnataka has laid criminal charges against collins benjamin in bangalore india is the state's way of declaring that the benjamins are not legitimately in business and that the royal garden villas project in bangalore india is nothing but a scam.

    NEWDELHI: Royal Indian Raj International, a Canada-based company, has been allowed to invest Rs 178.9 crore in Bangalore to develop an integrated township. The foreign direct investment (FDI) flow into the project has been formally approved by finance minister P Chidambaram on the basis of recommendations from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB).

    first off, i would like to state that i have absolutely NO PERSONAL INTEREST in royal indian raj or any of its companies. i do however, have concerns when one person creates such a firestorm that it risks investors' capital in a company based on mostly BS and personal issues. there are proper channels for such issues.

    i'm sorry, but i could not believe that any company would be so brazen or stupid as to completely lie by way of press releases to the world without having documents to back up their statements. why would a group purposely document fraudulent activity??? fraudsters TELL you something deceitful to get your money. they don't publish it internationally.

    So, after months of research and checking out the links and verifying the press releases relating to royal indian raj, I have come up with the following points that should be noted:

    - links for the charges against Collins Benjamin and for the royalindiansham.com or royalindianscam.com do not lead anywhere. these are dead links.

    - I have verified that royal indian raj have/had singed contracts with groups like nicklaus, choice hotels, etc. Your attorney can do the same. if you are going to invest thousands of dollars, hire a lawyer and get him to do the due diligence first. it is all available.

    - the delays by the karnataka state government for over 400 real estate developments including royal garden villas over the past 8 years are real. verified by biaapa.

    - the british columbia securities commission concluded their 5 year investigation with NO GROUNDS for any charges against royal indian raj (of course, the people against royal indian raj don't mention this FACT) they will only tell you what they want you tell you that would help their cause.

    - yes, some partners have disassociated themselves with royal indian raj. however, i believe this to be because of the negative press campaign contrived by the former disgruntled employee, william zack and continued delays from the karnataka government

    i believe this william zack fellow raised unnecessary alarm bells resulting in undue harm to a group who are WELL DOCUMENTED pioneers in predicting and promoting indian real estate as a great investment opportunity - The group was and is 1000% accurate in their predictions and it is all well documented for those of who wish to really do their research. i would not be too quick to dismiss the company's intentions of moving ahead with their plans to build their developments.

    so,do your homework THOROUGHLY before drawing any conclusions. Be informed. you cannot let one person with a personal vendetta against a former employer define the hard work of hundreds of people, or put their investors' capital in jeopardy. how foolish and selfish of this one man to promote fear mongering to his former employers' investors.

    Too bad that this man has caused such turmoil. One man could have potentially lost everyone's investment because of his impatience. shame on him. the real 'kicker' is that alot of the investors jumped on the fear bandwagon on one man's word. ridiculous.

    i hope that this all works out for the investors in this company.

    British Columbia Securities Commission dismisses fraud investigation into Royal Indian Raj International Corporation

    Canadian proprietary township model to proceed in India as result of clearance by the BCSC

    Vancouver, BC, November 25, 2011 - As of April 2010, the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has formally closed their investigation into Royal Indian Raj International Corporation (RIRIC).

    Allegations of fraud and irregular land acquisition processes surrounding RIRIC's township development activities in India were brought against the company in early 2005 by a former local employee looking to undermine the hard-earned reputation of RIRIC in both North America and India. In addition to RIRIC's early brand incubation of such names as Choice Hotels (15,000 rooms), Century 21, and Caldwell; exclusive rights to the Jack Nicklaus golf courses and Academies; consultancy associations with Jones Lang LaSalle and CPG Corporation (former Singapore Public Works Dept); and financial relationships with Global Emerging Market Fund on a 300,000,000M (GBP) Equity Line of Credit the following townships were presented to the Indian government and proposed for development subsequent to land negotiations and Township master plans submission:

    Royal Garden City Mumbai (2004) - 5,000 acre (217,800,000 sq. ft. built-up) "Smart" City, Mumbai, India
    Royal Garden Villas and Resort (2005) - Phase 1: 17 gated communities (600,000 sq. ft.buildable), proposed expansion to 137 acres (5- 7M sq. ft.) Bangalore, India
    The Italian Village (2007) - 1,136 acre gated community, Bangalore, India
    Golf India (2007) - a series of prestigious, planned golf course communities across India by golf legend Jack Nicklaus
    The Special Economic Zone (2008) - 12,500 acres for commercial development, State of Meghalaya, India

    After an exhaustive review, BCSC lead investigator David Martin determined there were no grounds for prosecution.

    "At the end of [that] process, we concluded that there was insufficient evidence to sustain allegations," said Bob Abrams, BCSC Investigations Manager.

    "We are very pleased with the BCSC's decision," says RIRIC's chairman Manoj C. Benjamin.

    Ravi Benjamin & wife Sherri Vaters & two sons Pierce & Yael have sold their Gravely St property in Vancouver for over $800,000.00 They are now looking to sell their other property at 5488 Smith Ave in Burnaby, Vancouver for over 1.2 million. Sherri Vaters (Ravi’s wife) has been the bookkeeper and secretary for “Royal Indian Raj”since 1999, while Ravi has been selling villas for Royal Indian Raj’s “RGvillas” since 2005. Seven years later and no villas. Ravi Benjamin has also been selling shares in the company since 1999. My family, myself and many of my friends all invested heavily 13 years ago. To date (August 2012), none of us have ever had one penny returned. We’re asking everyone who has given them money over the past 13 years, to please share/post any updates so we can try to keep track of our money.

    My brother and I made a small investment back in 1999. We wrote the investment off long ago but I would like to be kept in the loop as to this outcome.

    At this point, it isn't worth our while to seek legal advice to get our money back...but if there is a method to easily do that, I would pursue that. I'd almost rather still ride it out and hope that it is a success (not holding breath)

    British Columbia Securities Commission dismisses fraud investigation into Royal Indian Raj International Corporation

    Canadian proprietary township model to proceed in India as result of clearance by the BCSC

    Vancouver, BC, November 25, 2011 - As of April 2010, the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has formally closed their investigation into Royal Indian Raj International Corporation (RIRIC).

    Allegations of fraud and irregular land acquisition processes surrounding RIRIC's township development activities in India were brought against the company in early 2005 by a former local employee looking to undermine the hard-earned reputation of RIRIC in both North America and India. In addition to RIRIC's early brand incubation of such names as Choice Hotels (15,000 rooms), Century 21, and Caldwell; exclusive rights to the Jack Nicklaus golf courses and Academies; consultancy associations with Jones Lang LaSalle and CPG Corporation (former Singapore Public Works Dept); and financial relationships with Global Emerging Market Fund on a 300,000,000M (GBP) Equity Line of Credit the following townships were presented to the Indian government and proposed for development subsequent to land negotiations and Township master plans submission:

    Royal Garden City Bangalore (2004) - 3,000 acre (146.36 million sq. ft. built-up) "Smart" City, Bangalore, India
    Royal Garden City Mumbai (2004) - 5,000 acre (217,800,000 sq. ft. built-up) "Smart" City, Mumbai, India
    Royal Garden Villas and Resort (2005) - Phase 1: 17 gated communities (600,000 sq. ft.buildable), proposed expansion to 137 acres (5- 7M sq. ft.) Bangalore, India
    The Italian Village (2007) - 1,136 acre gated community, Bangalore, India
    Golf India (2007) - a series of prestigious, planned golf course communities across India by golf legend Jack Nicklaus
    The Special Economic Zone (2008) - 12,500 acres for commercial development, State of Meghalaya, India

    After an exhaustive review, BCSC lead investigator David Martin determined there were no grounds for prosecution.

    "At the end of [that] process, we concluded that there was insufficient evidence to sustain allegations," said Bob Abrams, BCSC Investigations Manager.

    "We are very pleased with the BCSC's decision," says RIRIC's chairman Manoj C. Benjamin. "As RIRIC is very vigilant at keeping well-documented records of its cross- border activities in the new emerging market of India and elsewhere we remained confident with the investigation's outcome. The process has nevertheless delayed our progress.We are eager to put the last few years behind us and get

    i believe this william zack fellow raised unnecessary alarm bells resulting in undue harm to a group who are WELL DOCUMENTED pioneers in predicting and promoting indian real estate as a great investment opportunity - The group was and is 1000% accurate in their predictions and it is all well documented for those of who wish to really do their research. i would not be too quick to dismiss the company's intentions of moving ahead with their plans to build their developments.

    so,do your homework THOROUGHLY before drawing any conclusions. Be informed. you cannot let one person with a personal vendetta against a former employer define the hard work of hundreds of people, or put their investors' capital in jeopardy. how foolish and selfish of this one man to promote fear mongering to his former employers' investors.

    Too bad that this man has caused such turmoil. One man could have potentially lost everyone's investment because of his impatience. shame on him. the real 'kicker' is that alot of the investors jumped on the fear bandwagon on one man's word. ridiculous.

    i hope that this all works out for the investors in this company.

    Myself and many family members invested a great deal of money into Royal Indian Raj in 1999. To date, July 2014, there has not been one penny returned to anyone, there has not even been one actual development built by this company. Lots of predictions though.Lots of press releases and lots of posted articles. Over 600 people have invested in Royal Indian Raj over the past 15 years. No one has had a return on their investment. Where has all of the millions and millions gone??

    Jailed Twitter troll speaks of regret

    Internet trolling has become a growing problem in recent years, but is enough being done to teach children and adults about online abuse?

    Despite guidance for schools, the chair of the education select committee says many are still failing to make students more aware of the dangers.

    5 live Breakfast's Rachel Burden has been speaking to Isabella Sorley, who was jailed after posting abusive messages on Twitter and other Social Media but now wants to warn other young people not to follow in her footsteps.


    Sujoy Mamjumday, Diraj Tagyi, William (Bill) Zack your 7 year Internet Trolling, iPredator and Cyber Bullying attacks attacks will face the law soon. Remove your traces as Cyber Investigators will trace you now.

    Well it's now 2015. Sixteen years since myself, friends and family members invested a great deal of money into Royal Indian Raj aka: Ravi Benjamin and wife Sherri, Manoj Benjamin and father Collins Benjamin. The BC securities did an "exaustive" investigation? Sure. We all have our investment receipts yet not one of us has ever received a penny back from these people. In fact, there have been over 600 investors who have lost millions upon millions combined. How do they sleep at night.

    Manoj Benjamin is a sociopathic liar. He makes himself out to be this important figure in business but the actual truth is that he is unemployed and lives at home with his mother. He has been lying and using whoever he can in order to get his bidding done with empty promises of wealth in the end. Since 2008, he has been feeding lie upon lie to the people that were the only ones helping him. His father is rotting in jail because of all this. No one trusts him. This is a warning to anyone who gets approached by this man with promises of a "big pay day" in the end for helping him. He is a monster who has left families high and dry. He is completely blinded by his own ego and this false belief that he is well known and respected. The fact is that nobody trusts this man and that is why nothing has moved forward in the development of these "so called properties". Also, where is this so called "board of directors" he keeps yammering about? If you are one, please speak up. DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN WITH YOUR MONEY OR ANYTHING ELSE FOR THAT MATTER!!!
