I first ran into Phil Warnock about 10 years back at World Gym. He'd set up a training program of diet/coaching called "Excel." A few days after joining the gym and making his aquaintance, I heard rumblings of him taking off with member's money, him not paying his employees, etc. Then, he was gone. Vanished. Come to find out, he took all the money owed to employees and then some. No members got what they paid for, as there wasn't any money to pay them to do their jobs. I ran into a big guy at the gym who said he and Phil had shared a cell at Walla Walla. Great.
Next thing I hear is Phil is again finding new ways to rip people off with his boat building business. My greatest sympathies to you who got taken and for those of you who think he sounds too good to be true or are thinking of doing ANY business with him-run!!!
If you ever should run into this guy, he's a real smooth talker but got nothing to back it up. He has a loooong criminal record-look it up in the King County Courts database-and keeps finding someone to bankroll him, usually women. If you should go after him for monetary damages, he'll suddenly have nothing. He's as slippery as an eel and very ambitious.
There really doesn't seem to be any way to stop this guy, he's like a bad virus. Too bad there isn't an effective immunization for someone like him.....
