FACT: Fonteno / HHP prove all reports false, win $7+ mil against former emp. Davis who posted all reports.

AUTHOR: MWatson - (United States of America)

Well.

I found out it is even easier to get all the factual information on this.

 

Just do a google search for "Michael Ray Davis Slander". 

 Michael Ray Davis Slander Suit             Michael Ray Davis - Fraud Suit

It will pop right up.  It will take you to a page on Hilton Head Properties, but don't worry... in that page, it will take you right to the court documents and you can see all the sordid details of what Michael Ray Davis did to Chase Fonteno and Hilton Head and that they obtained a $8mil judgment against Michael Ray Davis...  it 'included' his numerous false postings on this website, pretending to be investors, employees and more.   But this site will never erase 'anything' - ever.  Even if it is fake.  So - the only option they had was to have a page made on their website pointing to the truth.  

 

Must suck to have do deal with a guy like Michael Ray Davis.

 

I got to know Mr Fonteno.  And while Michael Davis states Mr Fonteno 'hides' behind the name 'Chase' to hide his background - fact is Mr Fonteno has gone by 'Chase' since elementary school and 'everyone' knows him by that name.  The Banks, Investors, and all the filings he has with securities and loans and more - all show Douglas 'Chase' Fonteno.  Not exactly hiding from something.  Anyway...  my last posting.  I now work for a different company because Hilton Head sized down and my position was eliminated.  But they were a good company to work for.  While I am a professional in my industry - I still learned a lot with them, and would work for them again if they asked.

FACT: Fonteno / HHP prove all reports false, win $7+ mil against former emp. Davis who posted all reports.

AUTHOR: Mark Watson - (USA)




FACT: The prior report is fake. The Reportwas filed by Michael R.Davis a former employee that was caught embezzling from the company.






I am a former employee of the company and can testify to these facts. But I don't need to - there is a court case for the embezzlement 'and' the slander, libel, dispargment and other things Michael Davis did to the company and Mr Fonteno, including writing numberous false reports on the rip-off report.All of this was disclosed at court and Mr Fonteno and the company won almost $8million in damages because of false news releases, websites and postings (likethis website, pretending to beformer employees, clients, etc.) (you can find out 'real facts' yourself by searching for 'michael r davis maelstrom' and you will find links directly to the Dallas County Courts.






Court Case Numbers: DC-09-09666 for the slander, libel... and DC-09-09868 on the bankfraud. He wasfound guilty of accessig bank accounts online without authorization, violations of the Texas Wiretap Act related to such bank access and other criminal actions. If you note - all the reports filedon the ripoff report were written during a very short time period - the same period of which Michael Davis was on hisattacks. The company evidently did not realize they had hired a guy to work in accounting that was just weeks out of Federal Prison for loan fraud.






You can also go to the Dallas County website and search for cases with Michael R Davis between 01/01/2008 and 10/10/2010 and you will find both cases, or use the case numbers listed above- so you are getting the information directly from the horses mouth - not just someones website.






The ripoff report is a good site to help people point out issues to protect consumers - but in this case, Michael R Davis used it to try to damage a company by making false statements that cannot be removed.






You can contect me if you wish. The attorney that handleded the case for Mr Fonteno and the companies was Kristine Skocpol-Saleh. Good attorney in Dallas.






And certainly - they are expecting more postings by Mr Davis 'as other people again', now that all his postings are being responded to by me. I volunteered to post the facts. All the prior postings on hereare just words without any facts - till now. Check out the facts by doingresearch in the courts and copies of the petitions and court orders are on hilton head's website.

What a Soap Opera. The rebuttal make little sense

AUTHOR: Spoof - (U.S.A.)

So I started from the beginning here and did the research suggested by the first post. I Looked up Dallas County records. Seems like for a person, and company claiming to be so shiny there exists alot of negative filings that have many company names and several signers and titles - yet all have one thing in common. they share the same street address and suite 3800 on Elm St in Downtown Dallas.
There's judgements - $11,000 here, $5,000 there, the Texas Workforce Commission seems to think they have not been paid either and then the big Daddy, the Federal Government. Uncle Sam wants his $106,223.00 according to the County records in Dallas.

Yes, these facts are in the filings and this website seems a venue thats not prone to facts. I'm not sure why a person would randomly come here and post something untrue. Seems pretty clear from previous posts here, whoever is in charge at HiltonHead has not been really clear with the facts, and maybe not so effective managing the company either.

I found the rebuttal to whoever's comments interesting in that whomever the former employee was that chose to rebutt/defend, claimed first - I was laid off at first due to the economy, yet then terminated at the end of the post. In fact that seems oddly coincindental that the rebuttal claimed someone was terminated and then disgruntled. It seems plausible based on the public record at Dallas County, that an employee did not get their paycheck and then became disgruntled. The truth it would seem, does indeed lie within the filings there at Dallas County.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I am an ex-employee. And I can state factually - the prior statement is not true.

AUTHOR: Accounting101 - (U.S.A.)

I am a former employee of Hilton Head Properties and HiltonHead Pathways.

I was laid off because of the economy. And being involved in the accounting and having first hand knowledge of the companys - can state factually - the statement made above is false.

It was made by a disgruntled employee - Patricia Rios

First of all - HiltonHead Pathways was a 'beta company'. It was developed to do a program of real estate sales. There was ONLY ONE buyer - before a large real estate company from Arizona made an offer to purchase the entire project. And we know the one buyer. And they did not write this !!!

Why would someone that claims is stating the 'truth' that appears to be slander - not state their name? Probably because they would be sued and proven in court they lied and have to pay for it.

Patricia Rios a disgruntled employee did it. So now Patricia Rios can have her name on here. She was asked about it - and did not deny it. She just laughted.

Can you imagine what she will do to the next employer she gets hired by? I feel sorry for them already. Maybe they will read this and will have better knowledge.

Everyone in the company knew - when she was being fired - she was going to be vindictive. Guess she proved she is who she is. We heard daily how she did personal attacks on her neighbor over her issues with them. We just did not know the manner she would do so. Now we know.

In my job - I had contact with investors of all the Hilton Head companies (and there are not many because most are very large investors - of about $1mil or more). I would know about disgruntled investors. And when I left - there were no investors that would have written something like this.

As to Mr Fonteno being a crook - he had a securities violation for not properly providing disclosure on a project back in 1993 because he did not know how to do it correctly. Not exactly a new issue. And boy is he well versed in securities now. And in fact he tells 'Everyone" ! He does not want anyone to 'not know' and find out later by accident. He tell employees (from secretaries to executives) 'before' he hires them. Tells people he is friends with, charities he helps, investors and anyone he feels should know. And - since that date - he has taken two of his own companies public and helped many others as well, avoid the simple mistakes by not know securities laws when they start up. His mistake for lack of knowledge caused him to have considerable training and knowledge after that - and now is paid by companies for business advice to prepare them in handling securities. Plus - he now uses his in-house attorney and several outside attorneys to review everything he does - specifically securities. So - Patricia - how about giving 'full disclosure' instead of spashy headlines? Giving 'part of the truth' to make it appear the you want it - is still lying.

"Chase" is the name he has had since elementary school - not exactly a name to hide behind since he has used it for over 30 years. Mr Fonteno is allowed to live anywhere he desires. His 'residency' is in Houston and spends a little less than 1/2 his time in Dallas because of the number of properties the company owns in Dallas and Ft Worth.

As to investors - Mr Fonteno has not sought to 'raise any' investor capital in quite some time - I would know - I handled accounting and saw every dime transfer in and out. The same 5 investors have been involved with the company now for over 4 years. You would think if he was stealing or doing something wrong - they would not invest anymore wouldn't you?

I know when I was leaving - he was about to do a securities offering, but he has securities attorneys laying it out and I am curious how would you steal investors capital if the offering is filed with the proper securities agencies and all fumds are monitored for proper use? That would land anyone in jail immediately - wouldnt it? And when you already control millions in real estate now - why would you do that?

Again - ridiculous statements by Patricia Rios to attack Mr Fonteno for termination.

The company has amassed quite long list of homes, mortgages and multi-family properties over the last 5 years.

And what does Mr Fonteno get from it. Actually - pays himself less than he paid me. Seriously. He lives very inexpensively and is focused on building a profitable company. He figures he will get paid someday after it is much larger than it is today. He is 'not' the kind of guy that seeks 'cash today'. I have seen his clothes. His home. His way of life. He lives very in-expensively and works on average over 20 hour days. All the staff has found him at the office sometimes still in the same clothes he was in the day before. We even have had to tell him to go home and rest. He is 'so focused' on not only making the company successful - but all of us employees - as he gives us all stock also.

I was terminated due to the current financial environment. I have a new job. And I like it. But I will tell you now. If Mr Fonteno offered me my old job back because the economy was better for the company - I would take it in a moments notice.

Nice guy - always friendly with all employees. But he would not put up with gossip or one employee bad mouthing another. That was Patricia. And she came and went when ever she pleased. No employee I know disagreed with her firing.

Not sure this will even be posted - but - here it is. I was a bit shocked to see yet another posting by Patricia Rios and just felt someone should tell the other side.
