Sela Robotix Ltd was a scam too, too peoples moneyAnonymous 09 Mai 2006, 03:38 - Verstoß melden
Dan Sela, an international con-man. Fraudster. Dan Sela is a man who would sell you his tales of robots, salsa conventions, Latin Centres and whatever else he may come up with when they finally chase him out of Spain. Dan Sela has been conning people all of his life and it pains me that he is still at large and causes damage in the beautiful country of Spain, just like in the UK and in Israel, where he originates. The story with salsa shoes is very in character and Sela Robotix was a total scam. Too many people lost much money. Dan Sela belongs in jail, in fact that is where I thought he was after he vanished. Now I can see where he went, with the money he has made from his numerous scams. Marbella, and spreading his tentacles fast, this time to Latin America. He is a real charmer and would make you believe anything, in order for you to reach for your cheque book, a valet, credit card, a pen to sign a contract or just to get into your pants, if you happen to be a woman. Dan Sela is a definition of con artist. He is confident and always in control, very tough and always full of seemingly brilliant ideas that unfortunately never work. Please keep this in mind when booking a Sela-Salsa course, or investing in Sela whatever. A Scam with a capital S. If you are one of the unfortunate individuals or associations who are owed money by Dan Sela, your chance of ever recovering it are practically zero (unless you know rather good debt collectors). Please do not trust this man's lies and I beg you not to lend him any more cash or buy anything from him. He uses your money to live large and laughs at you behind your backs, he uses your money to con others of theirs.
Dan Sela is spreading around the globe like a contagious disease. SELA SALSA - AVOID LIKE A PLAQUE!Anonymous 04 Sep 2006, 01:00 - Verstoß melden
It has been a source of concern to me to read the recent email regarding Dan Sela and to learn that he is still up to his old tricks. Dan Sela is indeed a fraudster, which fact I have long tried to inform the London Salsa scene of, but, for whatever reason, some people have chosen to disregard my words.
Fact: Sela Robotix UK Ltd (company no. 03499080) is a dissolved company, which was in poor financial standing with Companies House and therefore his statements re making his money as a result of flotation of this company on the stock market are false. The last accounts provided to Companies House were on 30/06/2000. The next were due on 23/02/2002, but this was never provided. You can access Companies House free of charge online to verify this point. One must realise that it is incredibly easy to have a company registered.
Please encourage people to check Companies House for themselves and display information about him, including his picture, in salsa venues worldwide. There are numerous pictures of him online and anyone seeing him should report him to the police. Dan Sela tried to con me out of a very large sum of money, tens of thousands of pounds, but thank God I checked him out first!
He is planning a major salsa event (“Sela Salsa Congresos 2007”), please post as many notices as you can exposing his scams. Hopefully some people will see it before they are too late.

I am glad to see that people who have been taken in by his fraudulent ideas are telling others I too gave him money for his so called Robotix company only never to see him again once he had got what he wanted. He seems to target women like myself whom he convinses to believe in him.
I hope people with whom he is currently dealing with in Spain see him for what he is.Anonymous 19 Sep 2006, 05:09 - Verstoß melden
This man conned me out of several thousand pounds a few years ago in London. I "invested" in Sela Robotix and he vanished. Did not forget to borrow a substantial amount from me before he did that. People who worked for him got issued "shares" in the "company". This man has to be stopped, before bank accounts get cleaned up. Please inform the salsa scene, that's where he is likely to operate.

There has been a number of reports that Dan Sela is changing tactics - selling Salsa DVDs at £100 per set. The problem is that these DVDs never arrive, should anyone consider ordering these things.
We can not reveal the name of this enterprise for legal reasons as the case is under investigation, however we advice anyone who fell victim
to these tatctics to contact their credit card company and ask for a refund. Please forward any details to us via this forum as it helps to co-ordinate our efforts.

Dan Sela from Sela Salsa was in Montreal and he offered to us dancing shoes that he supposedly bring from USA trough a certain company called VERY FINE SHOES. He told us he was the exclusive distributor in Montreal so we called the company to be sure and they told us that yes, Dan Sela asked them to have that right. Then, we though that if he was an authorized distributor, we could trust him. That’s how we finished giving him 1,000$ USD to command a dance shoes stock. That was 6 months ago and the stock was never delivered. so we did a police report and immigration report so he wouldn’t be able to come back in Canada. Almost 1 month ago, Dan Sela called us because he saw what was in the internet about him and he told us that he was going to give us the money back but only if we took everything of the web and the police so we took off what was on the web and then he started to say that he was going to send the money, but he never did! That’s why we’re putting this information on the page again because you all have to know that he is a liar. To confirm the information, you can call at (514)274-7991 Academia Estofa Musidanza.

Dan Sela de Sela salsa, estuvo hace unos meses en Montreal y nos ofreció los zapatos de baile que supuestamente distribuía desde los EEUU a través de una compañía de nombre Very Fine que hace zapatos para bailarines. Nos dijo que era el distribuidor exclusivo para Montreal, entonces llamamos a la compañía y ellos nos confirmaron que efectivamente Dan Sela les había pedido la distribución en Montreal. Aquí pensamos que si el era un distribuidor autorizado podíamos tener confianza, entonces fue cuando le dimos 1000.00$ USD para pedir un stock de zapatos que según Dan Sela nos enviarían a la semana siguiente pero los zapatos nunca llegaron, eso fue hace unos seis meses, Hace unos dos meses nos escribió un e-mail para decirnos que nos iba a devolver el dinero pero que primero quitáramos este anuncio de Internet y como aun no nos ha devuelto el dinero nos vimos en la obligación de poner el denuncio de nuevo hasta que Dan Sela nos devuelva el dinero. Nos hemos visto en la necesidad de poner el denuncio a la policía y a las autoridades de inmigración para que no le permitan la entrada de nuevo a Canadá. si usted quiere verificar puede Llamarnos al Tel: (514)274-7991 Montreal(Canadá).

it gives me no pleasure to tell you that after finding this site some of us, performers and delegates at the proposed salsa congres in Lima, alerted the police. we have spent much of the day with the police and this evening watched Dan & Gina being led away in handcuffs.
Channel N who aired film of them dancing this week will tomorrow (Saturday 7am Lima time) report on their arrest.
All of us lost money on the congress but some lost more than that, the opportunity to dance at an international congress and to represent our countries. The money can eventually be replaced but the dreams cannot.
What a sad day for salsa but thank you to all those who posted this information and saved others from losing money.salseros in Lima 03 Mär 2007, 09:34 - Verstoß melden

I am one of the people that got lured into this false congress in Lima. I am presently staying in Hotel España. Friday was very sweet: we went to the police and we saw dan being arrested. But today I just saw Dan in the hotel again. Apparently he has been released by the police so that he can pay everyone back. Of cource that is not going to happen. He is probably leaving the country right now... Anyway, it is not really the money that I am that angry about. It is just that I was really looking forward to this congress and so were a lot of other people. Some of them put a lot of time and effort into the performances they were supposed to do. My salsa teacher from Cuzco was also fooled and for him 180$ is really a lot of money. I disapprove of stealing but what Dan is doing is worse because he plays with people's hopes and expectations.
But although we were all dissapointed, we were already dancing again in the police station and we have been doing a lot of dancing in the past weekend and getting lessons from some of the teachers that came here for nothing. What I mean to say is that Dan will never be able to kill the salsa spirit...Daniel 05 Mär 2007, 04:06 - Verstoß melden

POLICÍA CAPTURA A ESTAFADOR INTERNACIONAL
(Publicado: Sábado, 03 de Marzo de 2007)
Un ciudadano israelí fue intervenido ayer por los efectivos policiales de la Dirección de Turismo y Ecología, en el Cercado de Lima por la presunta Comisión del Delito Contra el Patrimonio (Estafa), quien se presentaba ante sus victimas como seudo organizador de eventos internacionales en agravio de peruanos y extranjeros
El detenido Dan Sela de 49 años de nacionalidad israelí fue intervenido por los efectivos policiales en circunstancias que se encontraba en compañía de la mexicana identificada como Gina Navarrete Vargas de 27 años, quienes sorprendían a incautos promocionando el evento internacional denominado "I Congreso Internacional de Salsa y Timba en Lima Perú",.
Las investigaciones se iniciaron luego que una de las victimas, el ciudadano austriaco Reihhold Bern (43), efectuó la denuncia policial contra Dan Sela por la presunta comisión de delito Contra el Patrimonio en agravio de él y otras personas de diversas nacionalidades.
De inmediato se planificó un operativo policial en el cual se ubicó en un Hostal de la avenida España a otras diez personas extranjeras y peruanas quienes se encontraban en espera de la supuesta inauguración del evento internacional .
Un personal policial se contactó con los sospechosos, quienes inmediatamente le ofrecieron la realización del Congreso previo pago de ciento ochenta dólares motivando de inmediato la intervención policial, luego del registro respectivo se les halló entre sus pertenencias vauchers de diversas entidades bancarias y volantes de promoción del mencionado evento internacional.
Cabe indicar que el detenido tiene un amplio prontuario en la comisión de hechos delictivos a nivel internacional. Las diligencias correspondientes continúan.

I received this from a german friend about a website http://www.latinlife.de/ which is publicising the Lima congress, she contacted them yesterday and informed them of what happened in Lima.
How very strange. Had a look at www.latinlife.de. Where they had a desctiption yesterday of that salsa congress in Peru, they now say that they've started to collect links to salsa festivals and salsa congresses of interest to them on a separate site.
If you follow that link to that site, you then get three links - to www.latin.de, www.salsa-forum.de and to a google search and the same picture of the salsa congress in Peru with a heading: "congresses we wrote about".
If you click on the links, the congress is not mentioned, but if you click on the picture, you get to more or less the same write up as yesterday and still no mention that it doesn't take place.salseros in Lima 07 Mär 2007, 07:04 - Verstoß melden
