Todd Stockton alias,real name Todd J(for John) Stockton with his wife Jolynn Stockton(real name is Jolynn L Stockotn) of Littleton Colorado and formerly of Albuquerque New Mexico.
Ran two Internet Businesses(both Fake which has no products or services) at the same time. One had a Highlands Ranch Colorado mail drop( The UPS store at 9457 S University Blvd) and the other was in Chicago IL( see Randy Cohen Ripped me off- under the business name of usatradelines.com; it has a magic jack provided phone number with a Chicago mail drop)
My small claims court date is 4-3-12 and I really do not expect to see either of these Crooks there.
I got taken via their M.O. which was, Todd would give you the 'Rush' technique of saying that the Tradeline's Statement Date was fast approaching and for you to send him a check via Next Day FedEx.
Todd would have you put his name on the check and NOT the name of the company. Also Todd would call you & give you his "Private Number"(Riiiigggggt!). He would keep calling for a brief time & when he figured that you would not be buying anymore tradelines-he would stop calling.
In the contracts, it is stated that he does not run any advertising at all ( ie does not solicit). Well I found one of his internet Ads at Daype.com dated July 2011 in which it read the following:
"americastradelines.com, I'm Todd I live in Denver"
The other method he used was Referrals from credit repair businesses. The people got kickbacks for their referrals.BTW Todd Stockton has a criminal record ! They do not have any phones(landlines at all), using cell phones only.
I know where they live but they do have the habit of picking up & moving real fast. Currently they are renting a 2 story white house with green trim and 2 shutter windows which are green. And 1 tree and a large hedge in front of the house.
1st of all-you are VICTIMS and you did nothing wrong. Go to Google and enter in the search box; SEASONED TRADELINES, the look for wikipedia link. Click it and read it. Wait ! I save you the time and effort.
What is stated there is that the SUPREME COURT has RULED that buying a tradeline from someone who is not a relative is LEGAL ! The cops(god bless them) are NOT the experts here and they are making the rules of this great country.
They are to enforce the rules. Some Cops like to act like judge, jury, prosecutor and also some love, LOVE TO PLAY PSYCHIC ie they like to tell you that they know what the DA is going to decide to do about your complaint. Then they got the Brass Balls to tell us Not to take the law into our own hands.
Well, I disagree with that! 1st go to the cops, report that you were scammed by an internet business. Ask for a copy of the Crime Victims Report. That cop will later contact the Douglas County Sheriff Department. If enough complaints arrive there they will take action.
2nd you will need this Crime Victims Report for your Small Claims Court lawsuit. File the small claims on line, pay the fees with your credit card. List the Colorado or Chicago Mail drop address ( depending on which site you were scammed by)
3rd Google for the Subpoena for your local and file it out on line and print it. Google info on how to fill it out if need to. Also you can write it instead of filling it out online.
4th Proof of Service is very important, so fill it out, have a friend or relative sign & date it.
5th Send the Subpoena(s) via Certified Mail with Delivery Confirmation. To whichever mail drop you sent your FedeX money to.
6th Bank Account Information of the Stockton can be subpoenaed too, but you have to send the Stocktons a copy. Again send it to whatever mail drop you previously got scammed by.
7th Godaddy.com must be subopenaed too, for whichever website you responded to( I subpoenaed both due to I did not know Todd had 2 site going at the same time earning mucho big bucks real fast)
8th Subpoena your bank for copies of your Canceled Checks that you sent to Todd Stockton or whatever name he was using.
9th if you made photocopies or screen captures of the Stockton's websites. You will need HARD copies for court. I made such copies of AmericasTradelines.com, and Godaddy's hosted Usatradelines.com registrant information.
Note: do not be fooled by Domains by Proxy. On 1-4-12 the day I got Todd's email pretending to be "Tricia. Claiming to have been biten by "either a brown recluse spider or tick". I went & found out who was hosting his site and at whois.domain at Godaddy, I was able to see the same info-
that was on usatradelines.com registrant page with the same mail drop & email address.
10th My investigator has provided with all of their alias, previous addresses with phone number( some now belong to the new owner of the houses that the Stockton's sold to them, other number are disconnected)
11th I have their Photo ID's, their Bank Statements. I know that Todd drives a Full Size Pickup and I have seen a video of him with Jo Stockton( 1 of her alias; Joann is another, Jo L Stockton is another one still)
12th you MUST have Patience & determination in orde to win your money back. I have already made the Littleton Colorado aware of the size of the Grand Theft. However, if you Victims do not file the paperwork with them via your local cops. Then you must have heard of the saying-
The Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease!-right?; So start squeaking already !
13 If enough victims come forward the cops will ARREST the Stocktons and Freeze all of their money. Which you will get after the trial. Albeit, it will be a very short trial at that.
14th if I did not say it, I am saying it now- when you send your subpoena to the Wells Faro Bank (the Stockton's Cashed my Checks there), do include the photocopy of the Ceritied Mail Receipt attachec to the printed up copy of the USPS.COM Tracking that shows expected/date of delivery.
and be sure to send that subpoena to whichever mail drop that ripped you off, okay?
15 Americastradelines.com's contact email address is still valid-he may not answer you but that address does not have the Failed delivery response-yet.
16th Jolynn Stockton's Colorado Driver License is 09-316-0471 issued:7-6-1- DOB:4-14-73 Ht: 5'2 Wt:160 Eyes: Brown and she is a Brunette!! Todd Stockton DOB: 3-2-71 Ht 6'1 Wt:250 (Beer Belly Type), Drives a Full Pickup bought last year-it is an Avalanche( he goes by John Stockton in Littleton, not by Todd). They live at 9911 S Aftonwood St in that 2 story house I spoke of.
17th I recall in an candid talk over the phone with Todd that he said to me. He uses some of the income from the website to buy GOLD COINS. I asked him, rare coins, he replied No! Bullion Coins!!
18th I did not include the Stockton's email addresses as it is NOT allowed here. However, Todd uses a combined names of his & her's in their email addresses and BTW the have 3 & a live messager one too.
In conclusion, Victims-you need to get off your collective butts and get moving to get back your stolen monies. Get the Stockton's Arrested So they cannot do this to anyone for a good long while.
and do seek out anymore tradelines to boost your credit scores.
As I learned the hard way, all those advertisements you see on Craigslist and Backpage are bogus-run by thieves out to rip you off. Don't be a victim- just ignore that BS, okay. Learn from you past bad experience you had with the Stocktons.
