Complaint / review text:
This company has appointed Charles Gregoire de Rothschild and his company, GDR Privée, Inc., as a director, financier, consultant or adviser without knowing anything about him and who he really is.
A public company and its board and shareholder must be aware of any information that can affect the performance of their company and the value of their shares. The board members are liable under the law to do their due diligence correctly. If not, they will be accused of negligence by the shareholders. These companies must know the following facts:
Charles Grégoire de Rothschild is NOT from the Rothschild Banking family. He was born February 12,1944 in Tunisia. This is why he speaks French. This also helped him to claim and pretend he is from the French Rothschild Family.
Wikipedia is not an authentic source. It's an open encyclopedia where anyone can register and say what he likes.
Below you see the replies from The Rothschild Archives, London, England and confirmed by The Rothschild Family museum, Frankfurt, Germany:
Thank you for your enquiry to The Rothschild Archive concerning your family ancestry.
The Rothschild Archive is responsible for maintaining the family tree of the male lines of the Rothschild banking family descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) of Frankfurt, and we also keep records of the female lines.
Nobody by the name of Charles Grégoire de Rothschild appears in these records. Rothschild was by no means a unique name and there were other families called 'Rothschild' originating in Frankfurt, and other unrelated families are also called Rothschild, or have adopted the name (or versions of it) over the years.
We would therefore conclude that these people are not related to the Rothschild banking family, although they may share the same surname.
The most recent genealogy of the Rothschild banking family is "Le Sang des Rothschild" by Joseph Valynseele and Henri Mars (Paris: ICC Editions, 2004.549pp.) and there is also a family tree reproduced in "The World's Banker: the history of the house of Rothschild" by Niall Ferguson (London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1998.1309pp.)
The website http://www.angelfire.com/in/heinbruins/Rothschild.html gives a detailed family tree of the Rothschild banking family, but this is not a website with which we have any connection, and we can make no endorsements whatsoever about its accuracy.
There are also several good resources available on the internet to help with tracing Jewish ancestry, for example, www.jewishgen.org which may be of interest to you.

Charles Grégoire de Rothschild is not a Banker or a Financier. His name does not appear and never appeared in any Bank or Finance company or directory. He claims to control Billions!? How about writing directly to his Bank asking for a reference? These are his Bank details:

Charles Gregoire de Rothschild
His name appears in countless press releases but news organizations distribute what's sent to them without checking so please don't forget to read the disclaimer written in small letter as to the authenticity of the information contained in the press releases.
He has a small support team privy to the inner dealings and who is also benefiting from promoting him to attract companies and investors, so the bigger the scam the more money they make, simple mathematics.
