Jack Kronis UPDATE
Posted: Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Hello Jack,

Jack Kronis of North York has maintained a low profile over the past year flying under the radar but that changed when  I.FoundKronis wrote a scathing article about him in the Ripoff Report #972578.

His so called friend Shecky Greenbaum was quick to respond taking great pleasure in spilling his gut out about Jackie's laziness, luxuriant lifestyle, criminality and love of Botox in order to maintain his youthful glow while his classmates and underlings age with time.

Be rest assured when the Botox injections run their course Jack will be the first in line for a full face lift.

For Jackie (JAKRON) work was always a 4 letter word.

Punching a clock for an hourly pittance is for plebs and the thought of taking public transit versus the hand assembled motor coach from Stuttgart sans Corinthian leather was never an option.

What I would like to draw your attention to is Jack's newest and most brilliantly planned move at damage control to date.

Jackie boy, being a first class player knows only too well when his name is Googled a laundry list of his life of crime, convictions, Mr. Tony Van Alphen's Toronto Star articles, Mrs. Hillary Brown's CBC TV documentary on Jack Kronis during his Durham Securities tenure, references to his new "career" as an "independent marketing consultant" (who hires a professional criminal with convictions on 2 continents) pops up.

Oy vay....what a shandeh.

He therefore skillfully created a 'Jack Kronis Blog', in an attempt to 'cover up' any Google searches based on chronological order.

By posting pages and pages of "Jack Kronis Lifestyle Tips, Tennis Tips & Giving Back To The Community Tips" a Google search by unsuspecting individuals will first reveal his carefully planted nonsensical information.

Since people may tire of sifting threw pages of gibberish his criminal past can be buried and thus reinventing himself on line as an 'upstanding contributing citizen and pillar of the community'. 

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Jack a happy 54th birthday in advance for being fornicated into existence on March 1959.

The whole Kronis affair is remarkable. Here is a guy that for years made a very good living by duping innocent punters into buying extremely over infalted CDN otc issues ( many of these shoddy excuses for securities were either cleared or underwritten by the now defunct Merit Investment Corp). Fast forward 20 years and Jack has not lost his skills as a con artist. One may assume that his monthly nut has increased over time. The operation that Kronis works for claim to be a legit diamond wholesaler. What a bunch of lies!!!! The phones are manned by seasoned hustlers, many of which have been a guest of either her majesty or US DOC. Kronis has had somebody create a variety of misleading websites that hail him as an investor extrordiaire.


it will get worse, before it gets better!!!!!

And a belated happy birthday Jack.....

Am sure that you stopped into tiffany's and purchased an expensive, yet cheesy diamond bracelet to celebrate the day that G-D made his greatest contribution to mankind......That of course is YOU!!!!

A thief will always attract an abundance of bad karma. The con man strips his victims of their money, dreams and in some cases, even their lives. How does it fell to be a GRADE A grifter, rounder thief??? The tricky thing with bad karma is that often times, it is the family of the hustler that suffers for the sins and acts of the filthy thieving relation. Do your children know that there is a decent chance that someday, in what would appear to be a random coincidence they may suffer for your sins.....likely this may take place once you are planted in the ground ( of course at the most lavish plot in the Beth Tzedec part of the cemetary).  

The question is do you tell your family that the money fuelling their lifestyles is BLOOD MONEY?    Maybe it is time to come clean and save the Kronis clan from several decades of bad energy/karma. Save the children Jack.....It is too late for you. The ridiculous websites that you created, fool nobody. You can dress a rounder in Gucci and Hermes, strap a diamond rolex on his wrist.....yet he is still a scumbag. You know what I mean.....Eh JACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jackie boy has no feeling for the elders he has robbed over the years.He fears no bad carma,or American justice all he cares about is eating at house of chan and buying things.He has no recall of his time in jail and the pain he has caused others.People who have bought gems from him must understand that they have been defrauded and report it.You know nothing about gold,property ownership or nothing,but how to load accounts and  defraud.Think about the bad carma jackie,its all over you.ya stink kronis!!!!

Hello Bobby Bittman 

Your father like so many other hard working dads heard what sounded like a kind and compassionate voice on the other end of the phone never suspecting they were dealing with a world famous "loader".

These people all had one thing in common regardless of their race, religion, creed or color which is they hoped to provide a better future for their children.

After watching Mrs. Hillary Brown's CBC documentary on Jack Kronis of Toronto, Ontario Canada (a must see for you even if you have contact the CBC) I was shocking how Jackie boy referred to these people as "greedy" and "deserved what they got".

Perhaps Jack Kronis, a York University graduate who also completed the Canadian Securities Course received instructions to root out these individuals and exact divine retribution upon them similar in some way to what the Amalekites did to the ancient Israelites.

While many of his victims were forced to file for bankruptcy or divorce as a direct consequence of their "investments," Jack was keeping busy navigating "his" jet black top of the line S Series up and down Bathurst Street with Cohiba in mouth, diamond encrusted platinum Audemars Piguet Royal Oak adorning his wrist while sporting yet another professionally coiffed hairstyle for all to see and admire.

Your father's "investment" may have paid for a portion of Jackie boy's extravagant $100.000.00 plus strictly kosher wedding (when you were just a teenager in the 90's) or perhaps renovations to his mother's house, lavish gifts, exotic trips, Mediterranean cruises, gourmet meals, weekend getaways to Las Vegas and NYC, box seats to the playoff or for his luxury estate which was mentioned by a poster.

Jack Kronis of Toronto, Ontario Canada states in his blog that he "aims to give back to the local community in a number of ways"  the operative word being "aims".

Regretfully Bobby your family hails from Perth which excludes you from Jack's 'benevolent zone of influence'.

Therefore you are entitled to nothing and best you expect nothing in spite of what he pontificates on his blog.

Best of luck.

Hi Shecky,

On December 8, 2012 Jack Kronis of Toronto, Ontario Canada contributed his wisdom and expertise to posting:  Jack Kronis – Capital Coloured Diamonds Colored Color Colour Investing Investment loose emeralds tanzanite capitalcd.

If you can decipher his cryptic message do not hesitate to let me know it's meaning.

In spite of Jack Kronis magically having bags o' cash on hand to pay for one of Canada's top criminal lawyers he was still found guilty in a court of law and allegedly is still 'at it'.

Jack, could you tell me why you are attracted to things that begin with the letter C.

Color, Cut, Clarity, Carat, Chopard, Cognac, Cartier, Champagne, Cohiba, Caddilac as in the Coup De Ville you enjoyed cutting your youthful teeth on, Caviar, Vacheron Constantine, Cruises, "Curva"*, Coitus, Cragganmore, Concours D'Elegance, Corniche I-V, Casinos, Continental GT......

Perhaps witnessing Pearl puffing on Craven A's for 53 years straight triggered an unconscious response.

If this can be successfully proven in court you may end up being considered a 'victim' and upon appeal have your laundry list of criminal convictions set aside.

 High Pressure Sales Alleged Against Durham Securities 

“This is, ah, it’s unbelievable. It’s a world-class mine. It’s really, really, a big situation,” Mr. [Jack Kronis] said on the tape. “I think we’ll be seeing an explosion,” he added, referring to the stock price.

On a side note Jack, as an "independant marketing consultant" can you share with us your secret as to how you manage to find enough hours in the day to leave your always relevant point of view on people's blogs.

As well, I had no idea that you were so into utra high end audio such as WAVAC and Krell mono blocks, Goldmund Audio and even Samsung's Vacuum Tube Soundbar (model HW-F750).

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
