Ex-Georgia Football Coach (and Motivational Leadership Speaker) Jim Donnan Charged In Ponzi Scheme

August 16, 2012

Jim Donnan is the former coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, College Football Analyst and a Motivational Leadership Speaker. He’s also been charged with running a Ponzi scheme that’s bilked $80 million from former players, college coaches, and others.

I guess Donnan won’t be appearing at any “leadership” conferences anymore in the future.

    Thanks Amthrax for all you do to inform others!

    Doesn’t change the facts, does it dan? Or because it is a “year old” does it make it irrelevant it the big “scheme” of things?

    It was a year ago when the story began to unravel. But he’s recently been charged by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

    I’m not sure where to ask this or put this comment, so I’m putting it here. I was approached by people from LIFE TEAM. I can smell a scam from a mile away, so I was not fooled, but I listened and didn’t turn them down since I wanted to learn more about the scam. They wanted me to sign up and said that cost is almost $5000. I haven’t seen this cost mentioned anywhere else. I’ve been looking around this website and another website, but it seems like all I can find are sign up costs of like $200 or so. Did these people actually try to rip me off for over and above the cost of this usual scam? I was really intrigued because I couldn’t see how ANYONE would give them $5000 for nothing. Literally, nothing. There was no promise of any money coming back to me, ever. Just that for $5000 I would be allowed to purchase books each month.

    All motivational speakers talk about business and organisations, and they never earn money apart from their own functions and books! It is just like a preist who talks big about god and he makes money only through someone listening to his nonsense wisdom. Amway has hired all these motivational speakers, and biggest lier is Robert T Kiyosaki. He talks about money but he earns only through his talks and no one knows if ever built a pop-and-mom store at least.

    $5000 is really high. Did they give you a breakdown on what you get for that much money?

    5000 grand? Who was it that told you it cost that and you get “nothing?” They no doubt are running a scam within the scam! Run!
