We wired to HDAV OUTDOOR $85,000.00 as per the instructions of the Owner CRAIG SCHREIBER and his verbally abusive wife who says her name is Tina, but is really Tiffany Schreiber.  We were promised to have the sign completed within 4-6 weeks.  However, after 8 weeks we contacted the company and asked to speak with Craig, he refused to get on the phone with our Rep.  We were passed off to a "sales man" who told us the sign was being finished.  

After 3 months we contacted the Company again, once again and the Owner of HDAV OUTDOOR was unavailable and in fact we got the answering machine this time.  Over the course of 3 weeks of calling every day, at least 4 times a day we continued to get an answering machine.  We had already wired the $85,000.00 and had no way of contacting anyone at the company, and where also given a fraudulent address.  

HDAV OUTDOOR has a policy of not taking checks or credit cards, only Wire Transfers, that way they have your money and you have no way of getting it back.  We called and called for 5 months until we finally reached a gentleman who explained to us that our sign had not be built yet and that they were backed up for another 12 months.  

After 12 months we sent a rep from the East Coast out to the supposed address to only find a mail box, after much research we found the correct address by following a truck to the HDAV OUTDOOR "warehouse"  where there were 10 trucks, trailers sitting empty in this gated area... Obviously the owners were victims of this INTERNATIONAL FRAUD SCAM too.

We still to this day hae not received our sign, however did correspond with another company that received their sign and it was a piece of crap, and did not work.  They hae no service reps and you are literally left in the dark trying to piece together there metal mess.

I called the FBI and they are currently looking into the case, however at this writing I heard Mc Donalds is also pursuing INTERNATIONAL FRAUD charges.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This is A FAKE REPORT and should be REMOVED

AUTHOR: Bob - ()

This Report is of the same FAKE Report on Scambook so this site and Scambook are doing the same thing!!

Please take the time to read this brief report before you consider registering with Scambook, posting any complaints or comments on their web site and certainly before you pay any money to Scambook.

I am a litigation and investigative Attorney located in the US and I have been contracted by a client to undertake some research into Scambook.com. My report to my client is understandably confidential, but I felt compelled to post this warning to any other potential users of the Scambook.com web site.

Scambook.com is currently under investigation by the Attorney General in the USA for fraudulent trading. The FBI have received thousands of complaints from both companies and consumers about their activities and there has also been an investigative report which has been televised by NBC Chicago News. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has issued a red alert against the company and two of the original founding members have since left the company.

I would therefore advise any companies that have been blackmailed by Scambook to report their case to the FBI as there is a growing list of complaints currently being investigated by them.

I would also advise any consumers who might be tempted to either post complaints or comments on the Scambook web site to refrain from registering and to seek independent legal advice regarding any consumer complaint that they might have. Any complaints or comments posted on Scambook will be retained on file for future reference and could be used as evidence against both Scambook and against consumers personally if it is clear that comments made are defamatory. You could be an accessory to blackmail if you receive any payments through Scambook and any false complaints could lead to charges or perjury under US law. Please remember that even if you have registered anonymously on Scambook your identity can be traced through your email address and IP address.

Once you have reviewed the independent links and information below, please refer to WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW by scrolling down.

So being that a bogus complaint was made against me on Scambook in Jun/2012 and "[Andrew Bachman] sold his shares of Scambook in July 2012" (source: Wiki), that means Andrew Bachman was either aware of, or should of been aware of what was going on in his own company. This is a guy who is about to release a book titledGame Plan: Your Ultimate Blueprint for Confidence, Wealth, and Extreme Success ← really? To be fair to Andrew Bachman, I'd like to propose the following; if you are ever visiting in Australia, please contact me on 0401 151 599, I would be more than willing to travel to where ever you are staying and call you 'a cheat' and 'conman' to your face.

Latest Update: 1/Feb/2013 - I have lodged official complaints with the following California regulatory and consumer bodies: California Department of Consumer AffairsCalifornia Department of JusticeCalifornia Secretary of State OfficeLos Angeles Department of Consumer Affairs, and the Better Business Bureau.


Scambook then encourages other consumers to make similar complaints and boldly encourages consumers to:

” Add a complaint and spread the word. High volume complaints have a better chance to get their money back. Submit a report and join forces with others like you!”

In turn, the message given to companies is simple:

“Your Business. Your Reputation. Your Call.”
Scambook also charges consumers for upgrading their membership status. As such this clearly constitutes a conflict of interests because no lawyer would ever charge both the plaintiff and the defendant and attempt to provide both with a legal service.

Having read all of this, it is impossible to imagine how any company could be gullible enough to subscribe to Scambook’s Business Resolve service. If you spend some time searching through the company lists on Scambook, it includes household names like Microsoft, IBM, Citibank, Bank of America, Metlife, etc. You will also notice that there are unusually high numbers of complaints made relating to these companies and claims amounting to millions of dollars. Many of the complaints appear to be false and are made anonymously and it is important to note that none of these claims have been settled or resolved by the companies in question. So, if the global and international companies will not do business with Scambook, then they are dependent upon the small and medium sized businesses (SME)s doing business with Scambook out of fear and panic in a vain attempt to protect their business name online. If they do this of course, more complaints will inevitably be forthcoming. It is rather like negotiating with terrorists!

This would be the perfect online product for the MOB or the MAFIA, because Scambook is effectively charging companies money to protect their reputation. Pay Scambook a monthly fee and they will ensure that complaints are promptly verified and removed. if you do not agree to do so, then these (SME)s run the risk of ruination.

From my own investigations, I would say that the majority of alleged complaints made on Scambook are either false, or have been made anonymously and cannot be verified. Many companies also believe that Scambook themselves post the initial complaints against companies, in order to get the ball rolling!

The business model being implemented by Scambook is clearly fraudulent and illegal and it is only a matter of tile before they are closed down by the FBI or the Attorney General.

I hope that this information proves to be of assistance to both companies and consumers considering using Scambook. However, please do not just take my word for it, there are plenty of other independent links and complaints online and these are growing in their number by the day.

Mr Guy,

The BBB that you so eloquently purport to advertise does not have one positive thing to say about HDAV. In fact, a complain has been lodged. So.... sir before you trash a reader for her/his comments, make sure yours are accurate.

In Response to Anonymous Author False Report

AUTHOR: Mr. Guy - (United States of America)

Henry Henry... if you have any proof of your claims we would like to see it!!!!  

The Internet is a powerful tool which can be used for good or bad.  Unfortunately in cases like this, it can be used to damage people or companies. Especially when the author does not need to show any proof of the claims or have any accountability for the claims they make! This is the case with this absurd recital of false claims.

This entire posting is a fabrication of an irresponsible friend of mine who was irate with me and my involvement with the company I work for and wanted to cause harm and damage to me and my livelihood as well as the company.  I am sorry for any pain or confusion it may have caused to the company or its potential customers.  

Just read carefully the fabricated timeline.  It has no consistency and the claim does not have any validity. Why would a client expecting a sign in 4-6 weeks wait 3 months to contact the vendor ??? Come on over and pay us a visit. Our 10K plus square foot manufacturing facility has 4 bay doors and many offices, a huge fabrication area and a gated yard.  This person never even has seen our facility. Henry Henry...come on what kind of name is that?

Once again I advise you to look to more reliable sources such as the BBB, Dunn and Bradstreet and the like when researching the reputation and reliability of ANY company you plan to do business with in this wild and crazy internet driven world. Maybe invest in a trip to the vendor for some personal interaction and get to know who you are dealing with.  

At this company, most of the products are custom built to the customers specifications as the bulk of our business is custom LED advertising vehicles and trailers as well as large LED displays. These items represent a substantial investment of $$, planning and time between the manufacturer and the client.  The company has many innovative products and ideas and are masters of making a custom idea into a reality. This is something that makes the company unique and special to the customer that needs special attention.
