David Wu has employed Howard Davidson for more than a year. Howard J. Davidson, of Arlington, MA, DOB 5/28/60. is a socioopath who had defrauded numerous people out of money and personal information. He has many compliants online. Here are some of Davidson's activities:


1. Posting hundreds or thousands of fraudulent labor gigs ads on Craigslist since about 2007. Davidson seeks photos of males, and personal information for his sexual gratification. In seeking these things he deliberately wastes the time and effort of job applicants and sends them on wild goose chases to non-existent job sites. he has posted as recently as august 2014.
He asks applicants to answer progressively creepier, more personal, and more sexual questions while stalling the closure of any deal. 
He appears to be sexually turned on by lying to applicants and enjoying the conversation that ensues.
He lies about properties in towns where he does not own property.
He uses numerous aliases and email addresses.
Applicants are harassed sexually as he steers conversation into homerotic wrestling scenarios and extremely creepy erotic asphyxiation, and occasionally garden variety gay sex.
Most of the ads seek movers , landscapers, etc. Davidson asks for photos to prove they are physically fit enough for the job. People need work, so they fall for the scam. Only those offering "talent gigs" should be seeking photos. It's unheard of in the labor trades.
2 . Posting on craigslist, oDesk, and Barefoot Student seeking to hire personnel on behalf of his employers. however davidson has never worked in HR and is not authorized to do HR work. He gathers personal data,photos of applicants for no legitimate purpose. Included: Piehehead, Inc., So Pick A Party, Dreamingcode, Influencers@. In each case he posted numerous ads offering to hire people but was not working in HR.
He represents himself as hiring on behalf of these companies, but the applications are redirected to his private collection of stolen personal information.
Applicants believe they are applying to the employer. Davidson collects their information and photos.
He simultaneously works another confidence scam, by "hiring" people from these sites to do editing and writing, for which they are typically never paid. His employers are not actually involved in these gigs but the applicants believe they are, because Davison uses employer email addresses and mentions the company in posts and emails.
3. Robbing sex workers in fee theft scheme, intertwined with the above schemes. Once in awhile a sex worker indulges him with his wrestling scenarios. That sex worker is robbed of fees. These rentboys won't file a police report.
4. He has hundreds of open contracts on oDesk. He habitually steals services by premeditated nonpayment. He is farming out his marketing work ( as a salaried employee and as a contractor) to people in the US and India. He then represents the work as his own.
He solicits people for free samples of work as a means of getting free work.( He has no intention of following through)
5. Theft of money paid to him for marketing services not rendered
6. Sexual harassment of young males at work. He's been fired two or three times
In an email ,Spencer Branson of Influencers@ said davidson was "fired for inappropriate behavior" referring to hitting on male employees 25 years younger than him. Branson has also said that it is "wrong the way howard latches onto young startups". Davidson has gotten involved with several startups owned by people under 25 and has shilled himself as a "mentor" and "unpaid advisor". ( a very creepy one).
7. Sexual harrasment of oDesk service providers. on RipoffReport the writing he wanted done was davidson's own wrestling fetish pornography, ghost written by a horrified oDesk user. The text was posted verbatim on the site when davidson refused to pay the editor.8 Lying on resumes, claiming to be employed by those who have fired him. He also claims references from people who when asked provide BAD references.


Davidson has posted numerous times in the last week trying to lure in more males by offering $500 to put him in a choke during a creepy etotic wrestling fetish encounter. These are posted on boston craigslist labor gigs, where people seek legitimate work. The users keep removing his ads yet he re-posts. Text of these ads will follow.

fake legal notice debunked and exposed

AUTHOR: Barry Brown - (USA)

howard davidson of arlington claims to have taken legal action. apparently no judge has agreed with his lies because he is unable to subpoena any identifying information and knows posters only as "john doe".

in contrast, one user provided details from oDesk which prove his claims.  that person  is not lying

also i contacted the law firm several times. they do not respond.

howard davidson is a resident of massachusetts claiming to be suing residents of massachusetts. the ohio court he mentions has no jurisdiction.

RE: the above report


David Wu did not return communications from a citizen whistle blower for more than a year. Finally this month his office extension forwarded to his cell and he picked up. He attempted to question the motives of the whistle blower and refused to view the mountain of evidence.
Howard Davidson clearly views each employee job or independent contract as a criminal enterprise. From stealing personal data to financial fraud to unwanted sexual advances to males 30 years younger than he is, Davidson has been on a rampage of workplace misconduct for years and has burned through many jobs.
David Wu was offered screen saves of posts, emails, SMS text via VOIP, etc going back several years.
David Wu couldn't care less about the safety ,privacy, or well being of his employees or the reputation of AI Squared and Sitecues.

AUTHOR: Jimmy McPhillips - ()

here is one of davidson's posts. he routinely posts and replies to scam victims from his workplace IP ,and even uses workplace email addresses. he usually offers labor work and uses a bait and switch,  claiming the labor job was filled, then offering a job teaching wrestling, a workout partner,etc. conversation gets progressively creepier.

he has no ties to north reading. that false location is in this ad. also his alias "David Cutter". ( he lives in the old cutter bldg. in arlington. also the alias "Fran Albertson" and others.
