Ryan Strauss is not running any of the project anymore. His aunt is Jacqueline Anne Herps who was the director the companys and who was bankrupted last year and had many court hearings for GST fraud.
Narc or not it is important that BB and his teamsters are outed for what they have done to prevent them doing it again. Follow the money trail to his Bali resort and lodge your claim there.
People writing these stupid comments are the real deceivers.
Contact me personally if you want truth and clarification, what’s the bet you don’t, for your only mission is to attack and harm.
Robbert I know who you are, you are grossly inaccurate, and you aren’t doing yourself any favours.
– I have not been a director or shareholder of Partner Invest or its entities since 2017, I have been living overseas working in the mining industry since 2017, the other Director Frankie put me on as a Director without my knowledge or consent as Partner Invest went into receivership whilst I was overseas. The Liquidator and Receiver have since acknowledged I was not a Director since 2017. I did make a formal complaint to Asic for being dragged into the drama.
– Partner invest did not have $14 million of creditors, perhaps it did over the years but most of those lenders had their money in for set time and were successfully paid out with a nice profit, Partner Invest had around $3 million of current lenders/creditors at the time of recent liquidation. And the company has assets and loans it is due to recover. When I left the company in 2017, the company was on track to continue being profitable and had a bright future.
– Partner Lend was just a marketing brand that never traded, Partner Invest or Partner Lend have not been to the Supreme Court for defrauding investors – what a bunch of nonsense! Why you even bother to make up such lies is beyond me! Partner Invest as a short term financier has taken borrowers to court to enforce loans be repaid – that’s it.
– On the property front, Ryan Strauss is still project managing the last 3 projects that have settled, being 120 unit site, 180 unit site, and 150 land lots all in Western Sydney. Investors will get a return from these projects – money is not lost, it is delayed.
– His Aunty Jacqueline Herps was Bankrupted by Upstream Financial Services over a debt of about $300,000. There has been no court hearing for GST Fraud. She was investigated and all her associated entities for her and Ryan Strauss by ATO Phoenix Taskforce, a 6-month investigation found nothing, including no GST Fraud! Herps and Strauss had many other projects that I did not raise capital for or was not associated with, but as far as I am aware there has been no wrongdoing other than a series of bad luck and projects that did not profit like many other developers.
Marie, you’ve posted almost 200 times on this site, you don’t know me from a bar of soap. The majority of investors speak highly of me and know where my heart is, go comment on someone else you don’t even know.
I’ve debunked the lies once and now twice on this thread, I’m simply not going to comment on here again or give this thread any more attention, If you want to accuse me of something then email me what you think it is and I’ll fact check you first!
Actually Brad, I do know you. I know a few of your old associates in WA as well. I did business with Paul, Frankie and Brad (you) a few years ago. Which whistleblower sent you to this site…. or aren’t you coming back here to give this thread any more attention?
If investors had received their money and interest then no one would be on this forum.
Are you confirming that the projects that are not been taken by liquidators have profit to pay investors or is this yet more excuse? When will the three projects finish?
Detail and accuracy is what is asked. You are mining in Africa and not living up to your responsibilities.
Marie, it seems you know ‘of’ me. Must be at least a few years ago as I haven’t worked with Partner Invest (Paul + Frankie) for 3 years now when I left the company in 2017, however, I doubt all those years ago you had a sour experience with me. I am in touch still with most of the WA contacts.
Robbert, you are getting confused. This thread is about property loans, I wrote a detailed description on the first page about my involvement and raising capital for a developer, easier for you to read there. Someone previously wrote I was the developer and had a PDS, not true and proven in court I was never the developer, I simply raised money for the developer. There was never a PDS (Product Disclosure Statment) as its not a financial product, it was a commercial loan agreement (provision of credit). If it were a financial product, when you sign a PDS you waive all rights. People lose money all the time especially in developments, lots of developers go under, when its a smaller company with personal relationships people get more offended and have a scapegoat to blame, unlike when people lose money with manged funds or big corporate people just accept it. The point in all this as previously stated the developer is still honouring debts when contractually they could have walked away from much of the debt, I have said it before and I’ll say it again – we are all working towards the best outcome, so we need less attack, with more support and respect.
My responsibilities are well managed, I update all of the lenders regularly and are in constant communication with all of them, you must not be a lender if you were then you would have received my group update just last week and not be asking questions that you would have the answer. Such as you would know the status of the last 3 projects, such as DA’s being finalised, or waiting for rezoning to be formalised. It is not my job to manage the projects through, that is the role of the project management team (Ryan and Co). The 3 development sites are not associated in any way with the short term finance company ‘Partner Invest’ that went into liquidation recently.
I’ve been focused on the mining industry for the past 3 years residing predominantly in Africa, the recent liquidation of Partner Invest is nothing to do with me, the company was profitable when I left in 2017. If the liquidators chase up all avenues for collection I would think there is a decent chance of recovery of a significant amount – you are best to speak to the liquidators directly for clarification. Email me if you want their details.
No more replies here, period! – you can email me here at [email protected]@gma1l.com
when will the three projects finish?
what equity is in the projects?
what profit is projected?
your updates are not factual if you expect people to believe you then you will confirm facts.
Robbert you’re being facetious.
Check the dropbox folder link contained within the 10th of March update – in it contains feasibilities with projected profit, valuations, reports, letters of offer etc. It is confidential information not for display here – if you are a lender you will have access to all the information, and if there is something else you require then email me privately. NOT HERE, NO REPLIES!
BB your updates contain nothing reliable. Every lender has been conned. Posting on any forum is for an alert for peoples not to fall into your traps ever again.
everyone must know that you are a conman who will not pay anyone back. All you are hoping for is more and more time from giving false hope to make your escape.
Robbert, you are quite simply just a bitter a$$hole. You are facetious OR retarded as you just say the same already debunked gibberish. You know damn well, I did not receive any money, I am not the borrower, I was the capital raiser and our interests were aligned. There is nothing worse than false hope, my updates are always accurate at the time, you know there are 3 projects settled, I do not control department of planning and council – go call them up and make some crazy abuse why they are taking so long to finalise a rezoning.
I know where my heart and integrity is – and the beauty about being in a position of doing my best and the right thing at all times means I sleep well at night, and subsequently, your words are meaningless to me.
BB I am not bitter and I am not rude in replying also. It is you who is the one who is bitter because none of your promises will happen and you are worried on being found out for being a conman. if you had done the right thing by peoples then they would post or vouch for you but you can not. Kharma will catch up with you for certain. If anyone reads these posts be warned that if you invest with Brad Bilbie you will wish that you left your superannuation where it was for your retirement.
I have read about you http://www.insolvencynewsonline.com.au. You have taken money again and not repaid.
Hi Robbert, where can I find the information regarding Folio, the latest Gold Mining project or Brad, on the above link?
Brad, I highly doubt you were “just” the capital raiser. This is a business deal, after all. It sounds very noble of you to carry on helping all the investors that have handed over their money, I see it however as you stringing them along for the ride – a ride that you benefit from, not them. Need more money?
BB is hard to find a good word about him anywhere. Not like the old days when S0805 and Craferty had good words posted here to say about him. Where are they now?
i heard that BB was mining in Africa, but I do not know where. He seem to have run away after his last court. The link I posted is for another of his company called Partner Invest. It was another scam.
The reality is there are only a handful of sour people such as yourself, the rest are understanding and they have this thing called a brain that is remarkably capable of reading information and assessing things for what they are. And re my court, I won that with a slam dunk and defended myself, the plaintiff apologised to me afterward, admitted his lawyers pressured him into pursuing a pointless case, and afterward invested directly into my mining project in Africa!!!! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Marie, why you are even commenting is beyond me….. Go comment on the hundreds of other posts that I’m sure people are thrilled with your wonderous comments.
People rarely write about all the good things, but small-minded people can’t resist gossip. If you read my updates you would know exactly what I have been doing in Africa, not that its any of your business. And for now, I’m here in Australia come see me for a coffee :)
Robbert, you clearly do not read the information that I send to lenders and you don’t read what I have written on this very blog previously – you are utterly pointless communicating with repeating the same debunked rhetoric. And might I remind you, the developer could have walked away a long time ago with zero recourse – the fact they have not and are still honouring (albeit delayed due to no fault of their own), you should be thankful and not bitter!
I shall predict the future of comments below:

BB if only your words were dollars.DisgruntledParticipant@disgruntledJoin Date: 2021Post Count: 0
I am still up to this day waiting for the Property they brokered buying, to reach the Value that they stated would be at. Most probably too late to do anything as it was 9 Years ago, was put onto them by a Financial Group that was run by now a convicted fraudster. The brief notes are bought for $315K using me and my wife’s SMSF, rented at $365 a week. I should of looked at it further the original price was $329K and when the Bank Val was lower they had to drop the price to the $315K with some sort of rebated discount. Report from Folio and 2020 Group forecasted property to be worth $400,000 within a year and earning $425 a week in rent. What actually happened; We found out after a year that the devolpment was at the back of a Housing Commission area, was not warned of this, would of stopped the purchase there and then. Also the area had started massive expansion in property developments only a year or so later, Value dropped o $245K had to drop rent to $350 a week. To this day rent is $350 a week and getting pressure to lower that. Value currently anything from $235K to $315K, huge variance but middle ground of $275K. There were a few other properties they recommended, haven’t moved a dollar in 9 years. Don’t trust them, I’m lucky I can redeem a Tax Credit for the Losses made on this property. Due diligence needed regardless of what you are told. Expensive but not as catastrophic as other people have gone through. Don’t forget these guys get a cut for recommending and selling properties. Draw conclusions from that last statement.DisgruntledParticipant@disgruntledJoin Date: 2021Post Count: 0
By the Way, BB was the director at the time all this happened and the Sales consultant Grant left Folio only a week or so after this was done. I wish I knew there was an action taking place, would of put in my case.
Hi Disgruntled – I actually haven’t checked this blog for about a year, but what a nice surprise to get someone I’ve never met from a decade ago have a new bone to pick… @disgruntled, let me get this straight, 9 years ago we had 4 Directors, you were referred to my company by a Financial Planning Group (2020), that enquiry came through to an independent contractor property agent, who then worked with YOUR fin planner to sell you a property (I have no idea what property you got). We always negotiated with developers to sell at valuation (to stop inflated prices as many developers try), so you are complaining that the contract price was $329k and the val came in 5% under at $315k and you had your contract price lowered to reflect its true value, that would be considered by most a good thing…. We normally sold house and land back then, or did bulk buy discounted deals, you were probably limited by your lower purchase price and serviceability in your SMSF and the fact you can’t do construction loans in a SMSF, we were not financial advisors, the 2020 group who setup your SMSF would have probably given you a statement of advice and helped advise what you could and couldn’t do, maybe 2020 group said to us this client can only get this type of property. The 2020 group we didn’t have a great experience with, and we stopped working with them after awhile. We sold property only, and of course we received a property sales commission the same as all real estate agents, in some rare cases we acted as a buyers agent and took no property commission.
Based off your own information you were getting a massive 7% yield! and are now getting a 6% yield on your property, which is close to double the national average, depending on your situation sometimes people recommend properties with a high yield. Lots of the properties we sold have doubled in value over the same time. We sold all over the country depending on what people wanted, and we genuinely did our best to find the best stock possible. I stopped selling property about 8 years ago now, the last projects we sold we did bulk buys and were giving discounts of at least 10% to the valuation, and people did very well. Occasionally I still arrange bulk buy deals, and they are snapped up in a heart beat by long term clients and friends.
But I will leave you with one tip, if ever you want to buy a property again in the future, its not hard to do it all yourself, buy in an area you really like yourself where you know the market and what represents a good deal, don’t buy a new build unless its discounted and you can get a bargain with the developer. Most property investment groups need high commissions to have a profitable business, as most of their enquiries are expensive to come by with leads given by accountants, fin planners, or mortgage brokers and they all expect a cut, there are literally thousands of property investment groups out there most of them are one or two man bands and don’t make a lot of money. You don’t need a property investment guru to teach you anything, you just need a good mortgage broker and go read a book about property investing for yourself.
I’ll tell you what though… If you think you’ve been hard done by find a way to contact me directly, and I’ll see how I can help you, and if I can – I will. You never know!
