What is it with this criminal new age network?
David Schirmer, the “investment guru”—and only Australian—in the film, has his business activities under investigation by the Australian Securities Investment Commission (ASIC). This was reported on 1 June 2007 by A Current Affair in a segment titled “The Secret Con” with those words and The Secret logo appearing in the background behind the newscaster. The show initially confronted Schirmer in a segment titled “The Secret Exposed”, aired on 28 May 2007, with complaints from people who say Schirmer owed them money.
On February 12, 2008 Bob Proctor‘s company, LifeSuccess Productions, L.L.C. successfully sued “investment guru” David Schirmer, his wife Lorna, and their several companies (including LifeSuccess Pacific Rim PTY LTD, Schirmer Financial Management PTY LTD, LifeSuccess Productions PTY LTD, Excellence in Marketing PTY LTD, and Wealth By Choice PTY LTC) for “misleading or deceptive conduct”.
In August 2008, The Australian reported that Drew Heriot (Director) and Dan Hollings (Internet consultant for The Secret) is in a legal dispute with Rhonda Byrne over pay from the project.
