Hall of Shame: Darren Meade
Hawking Mortgage & Salvation
This sniveling little weasel bible-punching mortgage broker (with whom I had no prior correspondence) spammed me with his message of Christ’s love and the (admittedly subtle) offering of sound mortgage guidance. Click here to read his email.
Take note of his footnote disclaimer: “You received this email as a result of your ongoing business relationship with Darren Meade.”
This is 100% unadulterated Christian bullshit. Not one word of that sentence is founded in truth. We never had ANY contact of ANY kind. He is a lying spamming jackass.
Darren’s email included contact info all of which now lead to dead ends. Read on to learn why, but first listen to this hypocrite spew his religious delusion.
The Downward Spiral
Since this rant was added to the site (late-2006), I found the following self-authored blurbs about Darren on two different websites containing other contact info which are also now dead:
My name is Darren Meade with Victory Mortgage Lenders, and I look forward to working with you. Together, we can work through this and position ourselves to really succeed when this [real estate] cloud lifts, ensuring great years ahead.
Darren Meade is a national and local real estate financing expert. He is available for speaking engagements, personal coaching and consultations. He may be reached at (949) 499-1785.
Over the course of several years I went from being homeless to living in a condo on a golf course and representing the United States in international events culminating in winning the middleweight title of the IFBB Mr. North America bodybuilding competition. At the same time I co-founded a nutritional which exploded in the nutrition market and by age 27 I made my first million. Being young, I then squandered my first 3 million to turn around and build it again and again…slow learner at times!
I’m not too inclined to believe much of this, but I can tell you that Victory Lenders (which he owned) is now out of business. His website is gone, no trace of the company can be found anywhere, and his email address and all of his phone numbers lead nowhere or to someone else. Must be hard to schedule Darren for all those speaking engagements, personal coaching sessions, and financial advisory consultations that Mr. Meade was quick to boast about.
These are just two of many highly-inflated self-authored endorsements that I found with a simple internet name search. I don’t see the need to post more as they’re all filled with the same tripe…less you read what others are saying.
Now read just one of many critiques of Darren’s business savvy and character:
Much like Darren Meade of Victory Lending (Yes, the homeless boy turned bodybuilder turned nutritional supplement king turned mortgage lender), one wonders exactly how much koolaid they might have consumed, and if there will be any long-term mental health impacts to the frequent regurgitation of bull. However, at least with David Lereah, there is at least some formal education to qualify him as a somewhat credible source; if my personal trainer began giving me financial advice, I might have to ask him to stick to what he knows best…it’s the ultimate expression of the shoeshine boy offering stock tips.
However, the difference between the 2 seems to me to be the voracity of their arguments. In one case, Darren obviously believes the crud he’s sharing. He speaks with all of the voracity of a Koresh believer. He might rather endure great pain or even death before admitting any wrong. His lending will only end when those providing the money end it for him. Consider that he might actually lack the mental discernment ability to know that what he’s selling is toxic waste of the lending kind.
Follow the Phony
Google this idiot’s name and see for yourself. Seems like our little Christian friend has a penchant for jumping from job to job, getting himself in trouble, and then playing the part of the perennial victim.
The Coup de Grace
I can’t vouch for the validity of any claim against Mr. Meade, but none of this sounds good for the fellow – and this one takes the cake. It appears that this jackass actually claimed that god directed him to harass people. The rest is pretty god damn bad.
If any of this is true, Darren may have some profound legal woes in his future. Decide for yourself. (Is it just me, or does he look like a creepy Matthew Perry?)
And here’s a gem from rexxfield.com, specialists in combating online defamation. Meade and Michael Roberts are now at each other’s throat. There is a great email posted up from Darren (begging to make rent) because he’s about to be homeless. I’m sorry, but where’s Jesus in all this?
Video Killed the Lame-io Star
Someone posted this video parody of Darren getting bounced by a high-profile attorney in Los Angeles.
And I’ll close with this gem.
I wonder if he’s still living on that golf course. Doubtful, I’m sure.
Perhaps Jesus can assist.
