Hi Frederick, I am Thess, Robert's wife. First, thank you for understanding my husband. I am deeply relieved knowing that there is still someone willing to hear him out. I am copying below a letter that I want to share to his investors. This is the best kind of help I know I can give him. Assuring everyone that we are not running away and that we are sincere in facing our obligations to them. We just ask for more patience. Thank you and I really hope to meet you soon. Thank you so much!
I am Thess, Robert’s wife, as all of you know by now. Some of you have been getting in touch with me thru Facebook and I thank you for letting me know of your concerns. First of, please know that I don’t expect anything to change after you have read my letter. I am writing as his wife, and as a mother of our twins. Because apart from financial support, I think this is the best help I can give my husband. Everything I say is with all sincerity coming from my heart.
I want you know that I am fully aware of my husbands current situation. Contrary to what others might think that he is keeping this from me, no he is not. I am crushed and totally sad of everything that is happening. I’ve known Robert for more than a decade now. His family is also aware of what is happening and we are all trying our best to help him the best way that we can.
I don’t want to go on explaining also as to your questions where the money went. I believe my husband has already explained this many times over. But please know we did not use your investments maliciously. Ever since we got married I never stopped working. I don’t earn that much but it helps to keep the family afloat during these hard times. Had we used your investments intentionally, we should by now have our own house, travelled in and out of the country, owned several cars, went on partying here and there, but no we are not. Sir and Ma’am we are just an ordinary family trying to find ways on how to live a comfortable life.
I know how everyone must feel, and believe me my husband is really sad for letting you all down. He knows everyone has financial obligations and this investment is really important to you. With all humility I would like to say sorry for the inconveniences the recent events have caused you. We have been having sleepless nights, praying and hoping everything will be over soon and that no one will be harmed along the way.
I don’t know how to say this because I know most of you have lost patience with my husband. As many of you claims, he does not answer your messages or calls and gives you nothing but broken promises. But if you may allow me, I appeal to you to please understand my husband. You can just imagine the kind of pressure he is undergoing right now. If he doesn’t answer back or call at once, it doesn’t mean your message is ignored. We take it seriously, its just that sometimes, he feel there is nothing more to say to appease you and ask to be patient and wait. He hasn’t been sleeping well and going online almost until dawn to catch up on his earnings, and pressuring him all the more wouldn’t help. Forgive me for saying that. He is also forced to give payment dates because he feels if he doesn’t, that wouldn’t sit well on you. But please know he is not just inventing and thinking of dates and promise them to you. International transactions are not easy. We expect checks to clear on our estimated date but unfortunately, it not as easy as counting 5 or 7 days clearing. It takes days or even weeks.
Sir and Ma’am, please know that we have means to pay thru Robert’s current income. It may not be enough, I know, but in good faith we will pay everyone little by little. Please know that we are not in hiding, nor we are running away from this obligation. We have been raised with values intact and with deep fear in God. You can be assured of that. Robert has the whole family supporting him and helping him deal with this obligation.
Lastly, I thank you all for trusting my husband in the beginning. I have to tell you that more than being an investor; he also treated you as friends. I believe in one way or another he has all helped you, as I know he has been paying on time before all of this has happened. In good times and in bad, giving payouts on time and sticking to what was agreed upon were the good times, now we are in the bad, I just appeal to everyone, if in one way or another my husband has helped you, it is during these times that he needs your patience and understanding.
Thank you for taking time out to read my letter. I still wish everyone well, I will continue to pray that this will be over soon. Again, I deeply apologize for the inconveniences this has brought you. God bless all of us.
