One month ago, on November 20, 2016, Michael Erevna of Revelationnow.net published an expose entitled, Unmasking “V” the Guerrilla Economist. This was followed by two more articles: Alternative Media “Christian” Crooks and the Golden FLEECE! on December 4, 2016, and Abracadabra: “V” the “Guerrilla Economist” (Viji Varghese) Vanishes Resume Credentials! on December 11, 2016.
Viji Varghese AKA V-the Guerrilla Economist
Due to the revelation of the exact identification of the man who hid behind the mask of V, I am reviewing the 2015 records I kept on this rogue guerrilla economist. One of the articles I wrote on this subject was entitled, To V or Not To V: The Implausible Deniability of Steve Quayle which was posted on October 13, 2015. The other article dated November 18, 2015, I called The Gold Rush. I had been aware for some time of V’s real name because it had been revealed in internet comments back in 2015. However, there are numerous persons with the same name in the state of New York, so at that time I was not able to pin down the address and true resume of the Viji Varghese who had posed as V-the Guerrilla Economist.
It was on March 12, 2012, that V sent the first of his 89 pages of emails to Steve Quayle. In my opinion, it is doubtful that Viji Varghese could have succeeded in his fraud on his own. The pulling off of the V fraud had at its foundation three factors. The first factor is the promotion of the credibility of V’s bonafides by Steve Quayle, which he was able to accomplish because so many Christians trusted Quayle’s vetting of so-called Insiders. The second factor is the Blogtalk radio platform of the Hagmann & Hagmann radio broadcast now known as The Hagmann Report, which purportedly receives a “B” Alexa rating, reflecting a listener base of some 60-70 million persons in the United States and dozens of foreign countries. The third factor is the mentoring by another probable fraud known as W the Intelligence Insider, who was exposed as being Wayne Willot, who has worked closely alongside V in his radio appearances. Doug Hagmann promoted W as a man we could all trust.
Here is what Doug Hagmann said on his January 28, 2014 show about his good friend W the Intelligence Insider: I am not going to-I’m not going to tell you his name. He is, as far as I am concerned, he would be the real American James Bond. If I could, if I could equate him with any type of figure it would be an American style James Bond. Folks, you will have to trust me on this. This is a guy, who I trust. I trust explicitly. I trust this man, and in fact I say that I would take a bullet for this guy. And there you are, you know, maybe there’s a handful of people I could say that for, ah, about. And I trust him. Look, if he called me up and said, ‘Look there is an alien invasion on the White House lawn, I wouldn’t even have to turn on my TV.’ I’d believe him. That’s the level of trust that I have got with this gentleman. With that I will address him by his first initial “W”,- come on, Sir, welcome. To this W responds, Well, that was quite an introduction there, gosh. And Doug Hagmann then says, Well, I tell you-you deserve it.
Now back on January 11, 2013, Doug and Joe Hagmann, along with Steve Quayle, introduced V to millions of listeners of the Hagmann & Hagmann radio show. Steve says, Tonight is a special treat because we have got one of the most accurate financial insiders I have ever had the privilege to know a lot of people. Doug has been listening to him by the way of his email and reading of his emails but listening to the news that V has so appropriately warned everybody ahead of time that just to fill you in on his bona fides without obviously causing too much of a shock, he is probably one of the most well known commodities traders in strategic metals. He has worked for major PM (ie. precious metals?) firms also worked for the largest bank in the world, and if you know anything about the largest banks you don’t get to be the head of trading desks and all this stuff unless you know what you are doing. His accuracy is prescient. He’s timely and is important and he basically agreed to come on because he felt really it is time to warn the people because we are in the throws of a major cataclysmic financial group of events that are going to take place….
When I was writing a post on Jon Robberson and discussing the fact that at the beginning he was promoted by Doug Hagmann as the anonymous Hollywood Insider, I also made this comment on V-the Guerrilla Economist. I had written, Now after V-the Guerrilla Economist was invented, and heavily promoted by Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann, there was a point when he was “disfavored” and left the inner circle of trust. Because his bona fides cannot be substantiated, he remained anonymous and created his own website and radio show.
It was a topic of discussion in 2015 that at some point, both V and W were mysteriously never featured again as guests on the Hagmann & Hagmann radio show. When V went on to do his own radio broadcast, W the Intelligence Insider stayed at his side and has been his constant radio broadcast companion. This separation of these two “Insiders” from their promoters caused rumors to suggest that there had been a falling out between them and Hagmann and Quayle. Despite V’s and W’s departure from the inner circle of Hagmann and Quayle, these two promoters of V never exposed the fraud of V-the Guerrilla Economist to their listeners.
In reading the articles written in the past month by Michael Erevna for his website Revelationnow.com, one of the interesting quotations of V to Michael Erevna was the mention of revenues of $6,000,000. Whether this was an accumulation of income over a several year period, or that of one year, it is an incredible sum of monies. As an ex-banking auditor, I began to wonder under what business name such sums were reported to the IRS, or whether these monies were ever reported at all.
While many small businesses retain the sole proprietor model and file a schedule C to the IRS, as soon as revenues become appreciable, most persons then become concerned about potential liability and taxes, so they then take on a corporate or LLC form of business. I could not find anything under the New York State business entity search for Rogue Money, and other “titles” which V has used such as V-Guerrilla Consulting. But I observed that on V’s podcast page, under Rogue Money Radio it says “by Rogue Media, LLC“.
Below is a screenshot of the registration of that LLC. Note that the Rogue Media LLC dissolved on April 27, 2016, but is still noted this month on the podcast page. Interestingly, this LLC had originally been filed on September 28, 2007, several years before V became famous on the Hagmann and Hagmann show.This nearly dead end search prompted me to ask Michael Erevna if he was aware of the name of a registered business entity which V was currently using. Now anyone who has followed V over the years, is familiar with his drama queen persona as he declares his many warnings of the imminent financial demise of America. So to my surprise, (and thanks V for the humor!) his current registered business name is called Remain Calm LLC. The filing date was October 26, 2016 which was a few weeks before Michael Erevna posted his expose. One has to wonder why this nervous wreck suddenly decided to try to change his image to that of a calm man.
I have noted in this post that those persons who endorsed the genuineness of the credentials of that New York based fraud Viji Varghese AKA V-the Guerrilla Economist was first of all Steve Quayle of stevequayle.com, the owner of Renaissance Precious Metals of Bozeman, Montana. Secondly, his partner in this promotion of V as someone we should trust, based on his financial insider knowledge and analytical skills, was the radio host Doug Hagmann of the Hagmann and Hagmann show on Blog Talk Radio. Hagmann Report.com can be linked here.
At the Hagmann Report website can be found information on the business entity which Doug Hagmann uses to report his radio broadcast donations for his research and investigative works. See below screenshot taken 12/20/2016.Note that the business entity is Hagmann Investigative Services, Inc., which is a longstanding registered business entity used by Doug Hagmann as a private investigator and operative for the FBI and the New York police. A screenshot of a Linked In page reveals that Hagmann was licensed not only in Pennsylvania, but also in New York.A February 2013 bio done in connection with a YouTube Pete Santilli show also reveals that Doug Hagmann had worked as a private investigator in conjunction with the New York police.
In summary, Hagmann Investigative Services is not only the business entity which represents the private investigative work of Doug Hagmann, but also is the business entity which the Hagmann Report references for donations and related income reportable to the IRS. It was through this business entity that Doug Hagmann promoted the fraudulent front of Viji Varghese who lives and does business in New York.
So why am I stressing the New York Connection?
On October 26, 2016, which oddly is the day which Viji Varghese registered his new business entity Remain Calm LLC in New York, Douglas Hagmann, under the false spelling of his legal name as Douglass Hagmann submitted a signed document to a Federal Court which declares in part, My only connection to New York is that I have been served with this lawsuit. and 7. I hereby declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing statements made by me are true to the best of my knowledge. Now in response to this declaration, the Plaintiff has given a 68 page detailed argument to the Judge regarding both Stephen Quayle and Douglas Hagmann’s submitting of declarations signed October 26th, which falsely spelled their legal names and also denied any connections to New York.
I seldom listen to the Hagmann Report radio broadcast anymore unless a reader asks me to review some portion of audio which they found notable. But in doing so, I have mentioned in prior posts that it appears that Doug Hagmann is purposely covering his tracks of the past few years. For example he can be found to recently suggest that Rosebud, another Insider with a fake name, was a reliable forecaster of current events, although no proof is given. Hagmann, in his self righteous rants on his radio broadcast, also likes to plant false insinuations about all those persons who have tried to hold him accountable for his words and actions.
These Make-Over Artists seem to be very busy at present, and in the case of V-the Guerrilla Economist, he has been glossing up his Rogue Money website. Gone is the image of a raging rogue guerrilla. However he forgot to change his present byline, Truth is Currency. Now that byline is very telling, for that is exactly how a financial fraud treats truth. It would appear that now V is generously giving away his advice, as I cannot find his previously quoted subscription prices on his website. But even the magician V cannot make the following screenshot disappear, when once upon a time Hagmann promoted V’s website, and advertised the subscription fees which V charged for his fake advice.As I slowly prepare the documentation of the evidence I have accumulated on V-the Guerrilla Economist for a complaint of fraud letter which I shall soon submit to the Orange County, New York DA’s office, I will also include the hype which V invented involving a mysterious 4 star general. Many comments were made at that time by persons with a military background declaring that they have never seen anyone promoted on the fast track which this 4 star general made claims to.
So if it is illegal to falsify credentials, will V also be held accountable to the Army for promoting such a fraud? If V invented the 4 star general and also invented his words, that makes V not only a promoter of a fraud, but Viji Varghese would also be personally liable for creating yet another set of false credentials.
V is still promoting his Rogue Report forecast for 2017 as an ebook for $24.99. I wonder if his looking glass has foretold his own future. In my next post, I am going to review some online information on wire fraud. It is no wonder that so many “Christian” Alternative Media News promoters of V-the Guerrilla Economist are now denying what I call The New York Connection.
