Billy Cain, whom I thought was a friend of mine, agreed to help me launch our product, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded.  I asked him what type of compensation he would require for this and he said "just pay my COBRA benefits beccause I was fired from my last job".  He said to pay his Cobra benefits for June and July since those would be the months he worked for us.  I knew he was in arrears with his May Cobra payment, so I paid that as well, in good faith that he would "go the extra mile" for us.

Well, he did excellent work in June, and he even volunteered more hours than was required.  We asked him to show up for work at the office, but he kept coming up with excuses of why he couldn't come in to the office. In July, he said he couldn't do anything to help us since he was helping his daughter and wife protest at the Texas Capital building in support of women's issues, so he worked maybe abour 4 hours that whole month. [continued below]....

.....

In the beginning of August he called me up and asked how we would pay for his over time.  When I said his agreement didn't cover overtime he said "well I need to get paid for it". He insisted he was owed overtime and there is nothing that even covers a prevision for over time.

Now he's trying to bill our company for $23,500 and is telling us that's a DISCOUNT off his normal consulting fees when in reality, he has never earned that much in his entire life.

This guys is RIPPING US OFF!!!  Beware if you ever do business with him, get EVERYTHING in writing!!!

We intend to fight this tooth and nail.

On the contrary

I am not Billy Cain, as much as it would delight you to believe, but then again who am I to make you believe anything.

Hi Billy Cain!!

AUTHOR: John - ()

So, Billy, you're posting anonymously so you can come to your own defense without looking like it? Why not tell us who you really are? I mean, if you have nothing to hide, why make up some fake name?

And in regards to the NY Times article, everybody that knows Paul knows that story. He even posted a link to it and wrote a Facebook Note about it. So your copying and pasting links from the 80's when he was a kid gives you no credit. 

As for slander, I was at Paul's house when you, Billy were there for a whole 4 hours packing boxes when you were drinking beer and talking about your bipolar, medications, and how much you resents being a "care taker" (as you put it)  for your wife. We packed boxes for days while you did NOTHING for that project.

Polish it and it remains the same

AUTHOR: Lions Roar - ()

It was shown as a warning to be careful around Paul himself. There is no slander when facts have been proven.


Now, whom ever you are have committed slander and libel and are held responsible for it on behalf of Paul himself. I wish you would learn facts before you just jot things down.

Sue me for what? Doing the proper research before speaking anything?

Here you go..Heres where it was read. 

http://www.nytimes.com/1988/04/11/nyregion/17-year-old-li-boy-is-held-in-sexual-abuse-of-2-children.html

Secondly, your involving and slandering others who have no bearing on this what so ever. So lets double up what you've done thus far..

Lets also include the shennanigans of kickstarter projects..Theres more than meets the eye, and I commend you for coming to his aid, no harm in that..But fact check before you let your fingers do the work :)

If you expect me to believe a word you say, back it up with readable facts that have been PROVEN

Too chicken s*** to post your real name?

AUTHOR: John - ()

The truth of the matter is, Billy Cain does LOWSY work. He was fired from Heatwave Interactive for incompetence, fired from Sneaky Games, and his temp job with a temp agency called Volt didn't renew his contract (due to his lousy deliverables). And then of course there was Replay, who hired him for a 3 month contract and did lousy work....that is...when he actually DID any work. Hmmmm.....is there a pattern here?

And you're trying to bring shit up when Paul was a teenager in the 80s? Give me a break.....how desperate are you? You don't know jack shit. The case was dropped dumb ass and you dont know diddly because you weren't there....that's why you're hiding your real name because if you did reveal who you are then YOU would be the one being sued along with Billy Cain. 

For anybody reading this, beware of hiring Billy Joe Cain. He comes off as nice but is SEVERLY bi-polar, is taking Lithium, and his marijuana addicted wife can't even stop smoking pot because she's addicted to it. Oh yeah, and if that's not enough, he's currently on probation for DWI and he's still drinking!!! What kind of moron does that???

Bottom line: this guy is a rip off artist and you should stay as far away as humanly possible, along with any of his loser friends that he works with, like Randy Ryan from HamsterBall Studios,  it that's another case entirely.

Paul, I highly doubt you were ripped off. But if you want to libel and slander others, that can lead to court. If that does occur, you know the consequenses and what will emerge..New York Times ring a bell. Before you start trying to label others as sketchy or scamming, please look at yourself.

Ive worked with Billy Cain on numerous occasions, he has acted in a very professional, courteous and truthful manner. Our jobs were completed on time, and with a higher satisfaction than we had ever expected. He had never stiffed us in the slighest, actually we paid him more for his excellent work.

Opinions vary, Paul..
