Who Is Michael Gibson, And Where Is He?

And how does his company fit into a mailbox at the Traverse City UPS Store?

On April 14, 2012, slippery scammer Craig S. Gibson filed paperwork with the State of Michigan to register Cali Inversiones Ltd. as a 'Domestic Profit Corporation'...all the way from Cali, Colombia.

Or did he?

Is that really his signature on the application...or is it Michael Gibson's?

If you know Michael Gibson, contact Miss Fortune: tcmissfortune@yahoo.com

Here's what we've been able to gather about the 'missing' Mr. Gibson:  he appears to be Craig Gibson's straw man in a number of off-shore business, including a couple specious "coffee exporting" companies run from (wait for it) Cali, Colombia.

On one of the sites, http://coffee-colombia.com, the Gibsters describe their business in flowing, glowing language (you'll have to ignore the twisted syntax and flaming hyperbole):

Cali Inversiones Ltd.

Cali Inversiones Ltd is a company located in Cali, Colombia, South America and Traverse City, Michigan in the United States. We specialize in the importation of Organic Colombian Coffee to the United States. All our coffee has been grown at heights of over 5000 feet in the Andes Mountains of Colombia. We offer a variety of products. All of our coffee from Colombia is organic.

We service grocery stores, restuarants (sic), and specialty stores in the United States.

The Gibsters go on to trumpet the vaporous company's track record:

At Cali Inversiones Ltd., we import Colombian Coffee to the United States. We distribute to coffee shops, various specialty grocery stores, and grocery store chains in the United States. I, Craig Gibson, the owner of Cali Inversiones Ltd., live in Cali Colombia. I have access to some of the best coffee in the world. We offer green beans, toasted beans, and ground coffee. We can supply the products in bulk or in smaller quantities packaged and ready to sell in the grocery store. We can also offer private label blends. Whatever your coffee needs might be, we at Cali Inversiones Ltd can fill your needs.

This site is for information only. It will be totally operational soon. 

We are located in Cali, Colombia, Traverse City, Michigan, USA, and New Ulm, Minnesota, USA  




We've checked the State of Minnesota's Business database, and there's no record of any "Cali Inversiones Ltd.". There was one company we sooo wanted to be Gibson's: Gibson Liquid Waste Removal, Inc.
