#511973 - 02/27/16 12:47 PM Biospharms scam in Cayo District
miahallen Offline
We bought a parcel of land and had a home built in Biospharms (Cayo, District) where we moved nearly two years ago. After quite some time living here, we have eventually discovered all our paperwork was fraudulent and the developer legally never subdivided. Here we are, some 5-6 years into the Biospharms project, (less than 2 years for us so far) with many others before us defrauded, and some even fleeing in fear over the years. The article from the link below is a pretty good synopsis, and we have gone public after exhausting all other options. Our primary intent is to prevent others from continuing to be ripped off, as this developer, Darin M Smith and his wife Stacy, continue to sell lots/homes at Biospharms that are titled only in his name, so no one else owns anything. It is a very sad situation and one we did not expect from people who claim to be devout Christians. Below are photos of our beloved home which we don't really own - because the developer never did things legally. Many folks put their life savings into their homes, and are sadly cheated. We have taken to the courts to try to rectify the situation for all those before us as well.

Belize attracts some of the most ruthless and nastiest Christians to from the US. No offense to all good people, but so many are sheep in wolves clothing. Terrible. Assume they have done the same where they come from and might be here running from police, so check their police records from where they came from. Sorry.....

I came into contact with Darin Michael Smith from Ft. Myers, Lee County, Florida on the 23rd of September, 2013 after seeing one of his post on "Tiny Homes" on the Internet. I emailed him with questions concerning what he was advertising for affordable land lots and cabins in Belize. He was very open and talkative promoting his farm lands that he showed on this website as being divided in a Los Tambos Subdivision with 47 lots consisting of 1/2 acre to 2 1/2 acres.

Not only was the website at biospharms.com but the packet sent to me by way of the Fed X showed what was to be an established community with ready to move in subdivided land lots.

I was told that "There are many of us now. Maybe twenty families and ten singles all in total at this point. The average person is a college grad and middle to upper middle wage earner. About half have kids and most everyone plans to move full time in 2014." I might note now that this was incorrect. (24 Sept 2013 email)

However I came and there were only 2 couples and one single man living at the community. One lady left her home in November 2013 as she was frustrated with what she found when moving here about 6 months before me. Another property sold the same time as mine and they moved in a couple of weeks later than myself. By what Mr. Smith said, I was lead to believe Biospharms was a thriving community.

The whole subdivision is not as it was presented online and by word of Mr. Smith. Biospharms, Inc. is not a registered company nor is the Los Tambos Subdivision registered in the Belize government through the Title and Land Office as of our research in August, 2014.

I deposited $17,000.00 US into his bank account on the 7th of October, 2013. I moved onto my property in Los Tambos, Cayo District, Belize on the 10th of February, 2014 where I lived for close to 2 years. I continued to make payments until I found out that we will never own the property as promised or given the proper Title (Belize Land Certificate).

To date, Mr. Smith continues to lie and lead the homeowners on with manipulations & deceptions. He is proud of himself for once again he has caused a lot of stress through his intimidation's and threats to run them off. He accuses those going up against him of 'hating" him and the life there but that is far from the truth. We love, we work toward a settlement and the subdivision to be complete. He goes around accusing us of been the problem there and not happy on which he hopes we find a place that might make us happy. Well, we went there to be happy until we found out the real truth of the matter and he is a silver tongue devil and using Christianity as his vice to lure others in.

This is not what his clients thought they were getting into and we saw another totally different side of Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith has sent me 3 emails in which he has threatened me and told me to leave the community. He has made it clear that to me that he can have me removed and never be found again. He slanders my name in the community and to those outside of the community. I am proud that those living there at the farm know me, know the real truth of my character and I am only here to fight the fight with them to make things the way we thought we purchased when we went to Los Tambos, Cayo District, Belize

I do not "hate" this man as he claims, I pray for his turning from the evil he is doing in the back ground and for his soul.


.

God knows His children and justice will prevail and for that I give Him all the credit, thanks, glory and praise.

Those are threats. Go to the police and make a report. He might be wanted in other countries-check.

This project trades on cult theories. Anybody buying into those ideas is already not using common sense or logic.
First step .... Independent thought, checking for the truth. Do that and you will be fine. Don't do it and you are asking to be a victim.
