As you know, various people, including myself, have taken the trouble to contact the World Bank in Washington DC and enquire about Andrea Lucas, the instigator of the 'business opportunity' scam known as 'Club Asteria.' It turns out, that a person called Andrea Lucas was at the World Bank during the late 1970s and early 1980s, but she was never on the Board of Directors. The Andrea Lucas in question was, in point of fact, briefly employed at the World Bank HQ in Washington DC in the capacity of head of the (internal) Management Systems and Accounts Dept. She was one of numerous employees who were known only within the World Bank HQ as 'directors' (i.e. middle-management staff with fancy titles). Therefore, it is an absurd lie to say that Andrea Lucas is a former Director of the World Bank. Furthermore, I have yet to receive any confirmation that today's Andrea Lucas of 'Club Asteria' and the Andrea Lucas at the World Bank more than 25 years ago, are one and the same.

Perhaps the anonymous individual who has recently contacted Corporate Frauds Watch, and who has posted a thoughtless comment in support of 'Club Asteria,' would like to explain to your free-thinking readers why the instigator of 'Club Asteria' has been deliberately misleading the world about her own background and achievements.
I am reliably informed that the Andrea Lucas of 'Club Asteria' can't be more than about 50-60 years of age. If nothing else, common-sense would strongly-suggest that it is impossible for a person of this age to have held an important, policy-making position at the World Bank 25-30 years ago.
