|Leonard S. Johnson|

There are various posts touting him being "invited to Dubai in UAE to attend AIM Congress, a gathering of the world's top economists, investors, and money big shots, and to speak there."
Is this real, or merely someone embellishing the facts? Let's find out.
Which appears to be legitimate, until you realize it never said anything about what he will be speaking about. Indeed, there's no listing for him to speak AT ALL under "Speakers and Partners' contribution" Searching the website for Leonard brought up that exact profile page, and nothing more. He's not listed on any sort of itinerary, speaker schedule, and so on. He's certainly not in the "Conference Programme" which lists every event, or in the brochure either.
If we search for AFG, we find a listing for GEMCOIN even though the profile is for AFG and USFIA. Even the website link goes to AFGroupUS.com.
There are two more mentions of AFG besides Leonard's profile and Gemcoin page though.
One: exhibitor's list. They got booth A-3B. which is a small booth. As for how small, here it is on the conference hall map (click for full-size version)
Two: they are "gala dinner sponsor", one of two.
So where were the perks of paying that 50K? Turns out the company rep gets to give a short speech during the gala dinner.
So to sum it up all, Leonard S. Johnson was PROBABLY NOT invited to speak at AIMCongress for his expertise. He was there because Steve Chen bought him a seat for $50K (or more) so some sheeple go "goo-goo gaa-gaa" over it.
Even now there are sheeple claimed that Johnson spoke to His Majesty at length about Gemcon. What likely happened is Johnson gave a 90 second speech about Gemcoin to the entire crowd who paid him no attention whatsoever, and the audience included His Majesty.
It's all about context, and scammers don't want you to know about context. They want you to be impressed.
Are you still impressed? How much publicity and credibility did that 50K buy?
