Andrea Lucas has no response to the charge that she is a liar and charlatan
One of your readers, Amita, asks:
'On the club asteria web site this blog appears giving profile of Andrea Lucas. Is it all a lie? Andrea Lucas, PMD, MBA, CPA, CMC, former Director of the World Bank, published author and mentor, is founder and Managing Director of Club Asteria. Andrea has over 30 years experience in finance, management, consulting and international project development in developing nations. Andrea is a native of Austria, who immigrated to Canada as a young woman, where she learned first hand about the trials and tribulations of being a stranger in a foreign country. Now, this successful entrepreneur is ready to give back to the expatriate community to enrich the lives of the less fortunate.'
Classically, what has been posted about Andrea Lucas (by Andrea Lucas and her associates) is not entirely false, but it is certainly not entirely true. However, when the wider-picture is examined, this woman's impressive-looking profile is revealed as having been deliberately designed to give a false and misleading picture of her standing, character, background and achievements in order to shut down the critical and evaluative faculties of all casual observers. In reality, Andrea Lucas' profile (as it appears on the 'Club Asteria'Website), should be seen as being part of a pattern of ongoing major racketeering activity as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970.
As we have previously pointed out on Corporate Frauds Watch, Andrea Lucas, was never an Executive Director of the World Bank. She is, however, an Austrian-born accountant who has lately been listed as the owner of a private real-estate company with addresses in Washington DC, Virginia and Florida. Andrea Lucas worked at the World Bank HQ in Washington DC between 1979 and 1986, where she was one of countless employees who have been referred to (internally) as 'Departmental Directors.'
As for the letters after Andrea Lucas name:
- PMD means she is one of thousands of persons who betwween 1957 and 2005 attended a 2-3 month pay-to-enter Program for Management Development at the Harvard Business School.
- MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a N. American standard professional qualification held by many thousands of people.
- CPA (Certified Public Accountant) is a standard US professional qualification held by many thousands of people.
- CMC (Certified Management Consultant) is a standard international professional qualification held by many thousands of people.
Despite her professional qualifications, Andrea Lucas has become one of countless self-styled 'mentors' who have all hit upon the profitable idea of writing essentially the same puerile book in which they all claim to know the exclusive secret of transforming the life of anyone. In brief, all these copy-cat authors pretend to have once been poor little failures, but they now pose as inhabiting a Utopian existence of happiness, health and success. In this way, countless self-betterment quacks have attempted to convince vulnerable individuals that the secret to achieving this Utopia, lies in 100% positive thinking and in removing all negative thinking from their minds. Obviously, this is a dissimulated program to stop people thinking critically. It is one of the oldest closed-logic tricks used by charlatans and tyrants. In simple terms, by making total belief a prerequisite of achieving a future Utopia, victims can be blamed for failure when they don't achieve Utopia.
Andrea Lucas is founder and Managing Director of 'Club Asteria'. In reality, this is the corporate front for a dissimulated, blame-the-victim, money circulation scheme presented as a 'Utopian income opportunity.' For the past couple of years, this shameful, international, cultic racket has been preying mainly on vulnerable Asian and African immigrants to Europe and N.America with whom Andrea Lucas has pretended affinity by stating that she 'is a native of Austria, who emmigrated to Canada as a young woman, where she learned first hand about the trials and tribulations of being a stranger in a foreign country.'It is, therefore, a sick lie to say that Andrea Lucas has over 30 years experience in finance, management, consulting and international project development in developing nations or that she is a successful entrepreneur who is ready to give back to the expatriate community to enrich the lives of the less fortunate.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, Andrea Lucas is an absurd, but nonetheles abusive, charlatan whose multi-million dollar 'Club Asteria' racket is on the point of collapse and who now risks a long prison sentence.
Your free-thinking readers will observe that Andrea Lucas cannot offer even the slightest challenge to the accurate, deconstructed analysis of her hidden criminal objectives, posted on Corporate Frauds Watch.
