YELP is CORRUPT.  

Information was accurately posted on a YELP review board in complete synchronization with YELP policies and procedures and the YELP stated GOAL and Objectives.  YELP kept pulling my reviews about a predatory fiduciary licensed by the State of California. YELP Was informed that the information I was posting on the YELP Review was far more important than a YELP Review of a food outlet. 

YELP Also deleted other negative reviews about this fiduciary. 

Below is another negative review about the person I was posting crucial information about on YELP.
YELP also deleted this review.  

11/4/2011 First to Review (YELP Review) YELP Deleted the review directly below from the YELP site!

"Not at all happy with Mr. Statman's communication or performance in relation to his duties as the fiduciary of my recently deceased fathers estate. Lets just say that his website sounds great we just have not seen it in his work".   Joe Jr. Modesto.

The foregoing is unedited in any manner. It was cut and pasted off the YELP Review while I was trying to get YELP To post information essential to the publics health and welfare.

As noted, YELP Also deleted this review form the YELP Review page. 

Literature on YELP is replete with instances in which it has been alleged that YELP will take down negative reviews form their YELP reviews if the YELP customers  pay YELP Money.  ( BLACKMAIL ) 

I have an email from an investigative reporter that also stated  such. I have not included this
email about YELP because I do not have permission to do so.

BELOW ARE THE COMPLETE UNEDITED, IN ANY MANNER, MY EMAIL INTERACTIONS WITH YELP. I provided YELP with unedited emails indicating the truth of what I was trying to post on YELP.

As you can see I asked YELP how to make my Yelp Postings so they could be posted on The YELP review boards

YELP never responded as to why they would delete factual data from the YELP review Site. 

Business and people should boycott.

YELP already has one report on the incompetence of Alan Statman from a Joe Jr. 
In the central Valley, in addition to mine.

This most recent item noted below was from my brother in Porterville California. 
You can see what statman has done to the Lawrence Family trust AND HOW HE OPERATED WITH JOE JR, IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY.   . 

Statman is a predator of the elderly, in the central valley, or a severe incompetent dealing with the estates of elderly people.  .

My posting indicated who I was in name: "Donald L"  and where I lived in Santa Cruz,  I want
to email with your supervisors and quality assurance department.

Take a look at the url contained herein.  Perhaps you can assess this objectively with
out it being related to YELP.  Would you want this man having control of your mom or dad's estate.

YELP'S SELF DESCRIBED MANDATE AND MISSION IS TO LET PEOPLE POST THE TRUTH ABOUT BUSINESSES.  Not to delete the truth.
Sincerely and Respectfully.

My father was going to sell me the property. Then it had three rentals ..........Now it has none..
Now, I would have three storage sheds for possible use. Wow! One with a leaky roof. Two with broken windows because of the way some of the plywood was put on to cover the windows. F%@#*ing pathetic.

I operated within  parameters.
 
You tell me what is wrong with this. I CAN BACK UP ANY STATEMENT I HAVE MADE.  TO THE T.

I think that you owe me an explanation and contact with you Quality Assurance Department, and probably your legal department at this time.

Here is the review I wrote you TELL ME what is wrong with it in terms of your policies.  It is first person experience and FACTUAL.   I can back up all statements with court documents, emails and return receipt registered letter

And if this is not within your parameters, tell me how to make it that way.  Do you really think that any person looking for a trustee should not be aware of this man's incompetence.  They should be aware.  You know it and I know it.  Trusts and estates are important and bear many consequences for the actions of an incompetent than do bad food in a restaurant.  Consider that.  Please put me in touch with you Quality Assurance department and your legal department. 

THIS THE INITIAL YELP review which YELP kept deleting from the YELP site 

I had to finalize a reverse mortgage today with significant closing costs that I must pay.  This is because Mr. Statman refused to respond to me across several months and to one return receipt letter.

_______________________________________________________________

Mr. Statman has not responded to important fiscal questions about which he is a court appointed fiduciary and trustee for an estate.

He has held up a sale of a property since April, 2012. 

The original trustor died in January, 2011.  One year  8 months ago. 
He admitted in COURT DOCUMENTS that the people he hired to rent the property were incompetent and could not provide accurate records.  He continued to use them. 
He rented property below market price.  He used people for appraisals not living in the town where he ordered appraisals.   He could not find renters for a  BEAUTIFUL property.

I received numerous responses from potential renters in one month using Craig's List.  He had stated for YEARS that the property could not be rented. 

Five potential renters worked at state, city, county or health institutions in the locale of property to be rented. 

He could not figure our how to get the property rented so the trust could pay its taxes. 
He the held up a sale of the property for no good reason. 

Mr. Statman sold an estate/trust property that HAD NO MORTGAGE, PAID OFF, without consultation to me. 

This property had MINIMAL property Taxes as it was in RURAL Wyoming and was valuable to me for fiscal and emotional reasons.

Mr. Statman.

I am concerned.  There has been no response to my initial email of 6 days ago, seven days if we consider the working day of tomorrow August 10, 2012. 
I do receive prompt responses from other financial institutions with which I am interacting and Elyssa  with whom I am interacting through to Robert  to help him rent his properties by using Craigslist on his behalf.
I need to know the answers to the question noted in these documents.As noted a simple yes or no will suffice for me.
 
You are in charge of a significant portion of my finances.
I need to make financial decisions based upon the answer to the question presented here. 
Your prompt reply is essential for me.
Sincerely,

Donald L

Mr.
Statman. Yes or no will suffice for me.

Do you intend to list the property in Porterville for sale by the end of September?

Thank you________________________________________

Subject: Sale of Property

 (edited for precision of point making. Mr. Statman NEVER responded to this communication)

Mr. Statman:

The Wyoming mineral rights have no bearing on the sale of the property. 
NONE whatsoever.  It is not logical to hold up action on the Porterville property to wait for something in Wyoming.  They are
different entities and have no bearing on each other. 

I was told for years that the big house could not be rented.  Letsinger realty immediately asked me why the big house was not rented.  Same as Home Realty.I ran adds for renting the property and got over 20 responses in one month.  It is rented below market price as per  two real estate agencies and the responses I got from people willing to begin a financial
discussion about renting.  Dorothy told me three days ago that her house in east Porterville, further from Porterville than Lester's big house, will rent for $1400.00. 

Lester's' big house has more square footage, more rooms, more fireplaces and more bathrooms, etc and room for kids to run.

If Dorothy's house will rent for $1400.00, then why is Lester's big house rented for $1100.00.
