SEO Reputation Management at its best!

This company is in the business of helping people protect their online reputation. Funny thing is, they cannot even protect their own. Every six months they're changing the name of the company because it's been destroyed online by unpaid employees and unserved customers who paid tens of thousands of dollars for empty promises.

The reason this company has so many people hating it is that it is a scam run by a scam artist named Russell Pike. It is 2012, and the things said about him today have been said about him on the Internet for at least 5 years, though it goes nearly 20 years back to Russell Pike's first prison sentence in california for forgery or something like that (code for fraud, his stock and trade).

Below is stuff from 2007 talking about Russell Pike doing the same stuff he's now doing at Internet Business Group or whatever it calls itself today...(
.....com/wordpress/?p=788">http://unlimitedfightnews.com/wordpress/?p=788). You can see many of the complaints then are the same that they are today. You can see that many names are the same today that they were then.  This band of thieves travel together looking for an opportunity to strike. They steal their employees wages, they steal their investors money, they steal from their customers and use it to pay for their legal battles, fancy meals and gambling on sports and horses.

Russell Pike is the biggest con-man in Nevada. Pike is a cry baby, because now he cannot sell his 12 million shares of Xyience stock whenever he needs money to gamble with. Pike is also pissed because Adam and Kirk out smarted him and now, someone else controls Xyience. Pike and others have been using Xyience as their personal piggybank. They were buying pissed off investors shares for pennies and resell them at a huge profit. The game is up and the authorities have stepped in.

Lets recall the facts:
Pike was CEO when Xyience lost 56 million dollars.
Pike was also in charge when the company almost went broke on several occasions.
Pike has been issued a Desist and Refrain order from California for his illegal activities.
Pike and his inner circle are being actively investigated by the F.B.I. and the I.R.S., plus soon the Nevada Attorney Generals office is going to make their move on Pike and associates.
Pike, was in charge when Xyience screwed over Phoenix Labs, Basic Media, Neiber, Owens, Rayford, Zebee, Taulelei, Hucks and a multitude of other venders, distributors, and manufacturers.

Because of Pike, Xyience is being sued by several companies and individuals. If Pike wouldnt have mismanaged the company, Xyience would have never had to do the investment deal with Adam and Kirks group and be put in the situation they are in.Pike was in charge when they sued you, Rich Bergeron for $25,000.000.00. Rich were you aware that Pike, Solomon and Rinato were the reason you got sued? Solomon has it out for you. He is the one who is behind the internet blogs, slandering and defaming you and Neiber. He stands to lose a lot if Xyience goes bankrupt.

I left Xyience over a year ago. I saw first hand the huge money all the consultant and contractors that were on the payroll, under Pikes rule were taking from Xyience. Pike even has his brother Billy, his wife Jennifer and his kids on the payroll. I saw how Pike screwed people and companies over and manipulated contracts to their advantage and even canceled contracts to screw people over.Pike is a crook and always will be. I am glad to see that Karma finally caught up with him and the rest of his gang. Now, they all know how it feels to get screwed over. Pike you deserve what is happening to you. 

MORE XYIENCE TRUE FACTS
November 28th, 2007 @ 9:37 am

more background on the truth of Xyience; Russell Pike, started the Xyience Company, WITH OTHER peoples money, after stealing John Scotts Nitros company and connections with the UFC. Pike put NONE of his own money into the company, because he had no money at the time. After the failed Supplement Stores business venture, he had Mike Clark leverage his property to get the start up capital. Andrew Kriechbaumer, came on board and after hustling friends and family, got Xyiences further capital. Then Pike gives himself 12 million shares and a fat salary of $175,000. Plus, for the last 4 years has been taking further monies from Xyience and putting it in the names of Pike Family Trust, Pike Family Trust II, and the Courtney/CINA Pike trust. Why all the trusts? Because Pike still has a multimillion dollar judgment hanging over his head, from his past fraudulent actions he got busted for.

Protect yourself from Pete Rinato, Russell Pike, David Flynn (aka Michael Flynn), Lindsey Pinapfel, Rick Klingenberg (aka Richard West or Richard Weston)

Russell Pike

AUTHOR: Yahoo! - (United States of America)

This guy is a psychopath. How is it that a three-time felon gets the chance to become a four-time felon?

When there's crap in the toilet, flush it down. Don't set it out on the bathroom floor for everyone to step in.

I've heard it said that you can't polish a turd. Not true! Russell Pike is a self-polishing turd. He shines himself up to a blinding brilliance, which will fool new investors when he gets out in 5 years, having had plenty of time to cook up his next scam.

Russell Pike sent up AGAIN!!!! Lindsey Pinapfel, David Flynn, Pete Rinato need a new meal ticket

AUTHOR: Yahoo! - (United States of America)

Read for yourself.  FOUR-time felon. Holy Crap!  
http://www.lvrj.com/news/former-sports-drink-ceo-convicted-of-tax-evasion-145840565.html

And, apparently there are ADDITIONAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS in progress right now. Sure, he's not a "dangerous" felon, but he has taken millions and millions from people, their life savings. Aren't there cheaper, more efficient, methods to handle this fella than hundreds of thousands in public funds expended to try, convict and house this scumbag. Come on already. Am sick of our pubic funds spent on unchangeable scumbags like Pike.

Next up, his cronies, David Michael Flynn (charged with robbery with a deadly weapon), Lindsey Pinapfel (the "girlfriend" and veneer for much of Pike's schemings), Pete Rinato (long-time Pike buddy and partner in scams).
