Hi:  I need to quickly speak with the Managing Director/Presiddent of B-Tan concerning the e-mails below.  My cell number is 305-310-6494. Unless I hear from the principal within 24 hours, I will send a blitz criminal/rippoff campaign against B-Tan and especially against Mr. Joe Herles. Customers like Pepsi, Guess, Hermes, Techart, Kawsaki Motors, and others will be contacted. about your illicit activities. The FBI, CIA, and Homeland Security are on my list a well.l. The White House (President Obama) was informed this morning. B-Tan needs to pay hardship compensations to all scammed individuals, plus pay punitive actions.  Regretfully, Lou Melocchi PS: Do not scam any more hard working individuals. I mean it!

Dear Mr. Herles: Your time is up. Wait to hear about your activities on ABC News and other networks. Your key customers will be contacted about your illegal activities as well.  You need to pay for causing harm to innocent working people attempting to survive during this troubled times. You have encountered a very educated individual with a mission.  My cause is obvious: " We must penalize scammers and place them in jail." I want to spearhead this issue during a Presidential Campaign. All the networks will be adviced of your illegal activities starting tomorrow. President Obama will be contacted by me personally.  You are silent and I am not! Wait what will happen! Lou Melocchi

Was working for B-Tan LLC and Joe Herles was my supervisor.  First task was to locate an artist in Russia that had an art gallery and had sold a painting to a client of B-Tan.  Painting was damaged and client wanted to purchase the same painting again  Located the artist and negotiated a price for painting.  Client was suppose to send money gram for painting and transporation costs.  Passed probationary period and was to receive first paycheck.  Filed out the direct deposit information.   Two days later a deposit was in my account from Kawaski Motors.  Joe Herles called and told me that the client sent the money to me for me to cash a check and send the money gram.  After that was completed he would send me my check plus a bonus.  Should have known better, but I had decided that I was going to get my check and quit.  This is what I told Joe.  Well, we cashed the check, got the money gram and now my bank account is locked due to the fraud.

Dear Mr. Herles: Like you ask your  "Help Hand Services" to do their task within 24 to 48 hours, you now have the same time to defend yourself on the following ripoff reports. By the way, these reports are mild compared to what I am about to file. How can you live with yourself when you cause so many people damages? Where is Zevia and Allen on all this mess. For some reason they have not called me. Lou Melocchi

I can seem old fashioned, but I used to rely on old proven methods     in matters of money. I do not trust banks, as I wrote earlier. we     sign a contract with you and if you suddenly have problems with the     transfer and not by my ene your fault and the fault of a third     party, I do not want to take over that responsibility. there are     proven ways to transfer old whom I trust and I will not change and     take risks.

                                     2) The client has agreed to pay $7,000 for the                         art work and $1,800 for air freight, insurance                         and permit for a total of $8,800. 3) My client is a                         major Corporation and they only deal with Bank                         Wire Transfers or Corporate Credit Cards.  4) My client attempted to                         honor your wish to send the money via Western                         Union online, but it was not possible due to the                         large amount of money. .  Mr. Zotchikt, please                         understand that my client is very,                         very interested in purchasing the re-creation of                         the "Tulip" painting, however the                             payment term must be by bank wire transfer and                         not by Western Union. They are a Corporation and                         not an individual and  must abide by Corporate                         rules. If you are still interested in                         concluding this transaction, kindly send me the                         requested banking information by tomorrow                         morning, and I will assure you that the wire                         transfer will be made the same day.
