It wasn't his first scam but this report starts when Mark Bernard Thomas started a company called H2Options Pty Ltd. He got he friend to invest his life savings ($100,000) into the company so they could make rain water tanks and sell them in Queensland, Australia.
Thomas got his friend to be the only Director of the company while Thomas run the business and racked huge debts. When one of his creditors was owed over $500,000 they started chasing him. When the creditors came looking for their money they found that Thomas was not a Director and so they chased the friend. The friend couldn't stand the heat and hung himself. Thomas the let H2Options go into liquidation and walk without any remorse or way for the creditors to pursue him. He left a lot of consumers without product and warranty support. Thomas then started a company called H2Options International Pty Ltd and away he went trying it all over again. H2Options International Pty Limited was deregistered on 14 November 2010. On 4 February 2011, after H2Options International has been deregistered Thomas registered the domain name ArtesianTanks.com.au. He has setup a web site and is offering water tanks for sale. The web site does not identify who is selling the tanks, it does not disclose their Australian Business Number, a business requirement for all Australian businesses; it does not identify any physical address. He is out racking up credit with suppliers and the web site offers to sell to unsuspecting consumers water tanks, pumps etc. I have had previous experiences with Thomas and he practises serious retaliation and threats so I am not prepared to leave my details here. Avoid contact with him at all costs!
