*General Comment: Fraud by Joseph Bretz
*Author of original report: not slander Truth
*Author of original report: NOW They r offering me MY MONEY if i take this report down
My name is Brandon. The following is a story of a company in Hollywood that is taking advantage of a-list celebrities, innocent hard working Americans and the American financial system. with an OTT application Called Digidev Tv that they claim "will change the face of entertainment".which was supposed to be released on Aug 15th and is nowhere near being completed. I am here to state the facts as otherwise for i have been on the inside of Digidev since fathers day.
The weekend that I came out under guidance from a business partner that is a power in the entertainment industry, I met with Joseph Q Bretz the weekend of Fathers Day 2013. In the weeks leading up to my personal meeting with Joe every time I called him he was always in "the Hills" on his way to a certain power celebrities "house" or he was always "chilling" with this certain celebrity. I would quickly learn this was a complete lie.
The original idea was for me to make an investment/loan of 2500 dollars in Digidev and become a part of what was going on in there monitoring for a certain group of business men here in Hollywood because part of my deal was live comedy shows and other content I have been working years on was to go on the network. I started to notice things left and right that were wrong.
Number one I gave the man a chance and gave him $5000 in cash and received a $2700 check that would eventually bounce from Wells Fargo. Also the check along with other personal items have since disappeared such as my license and social security card, a phone and my book of music I'd been writing. I was also told it was a 30 day loan that "would be doubled in stock" and "you'll get your money in three weeks to a month" and I would receive "7% cash and 7% stock on any other investment I brought in". I only fortunately brought one other investor. Joe stated the extra 200 on the. check was "for coming in person."
I to this day have not received my securities other investors waited 6 month's before receiving theirs. Nor have I seen any of my money promised or original loan returned. But I was shown guns the first day like we were in some kind of gangster movie. I was told that my hotel and travel and airlines and transportation for which I have paper receipts showing I paid these tabs would be "covered" by Digidev to this day I still have a thousand dollar debt with the Hollywood Hotel that I stayed in during my time as well the thousands I spent in travel and promoting.
As everything started to come across as lies I realized that I needed to pay more and more attention to what was going on inside 6630 W Sunset. I contacted Sinra I contacted Department of Corporations I could find no other proof that Digidev or the Digital Development Group of Nevada was able to sell stocks/securities on the exchange in the state of California.
About a month ago I started to ask for my money back as well did two very powerful names in the industry who are owed an excess amount of money while they are being defaced and slandered under what investors are being told by Joe Bretz, who was borrowing money taking investments for Digidev by lying about his association with these stars.
At this point in the investment for me has been nothing but a problem as it is cost me twenty thousand dollars in other areas of my business as part of what Joe had told me I would be setting up shows in my hometown of San Diego as well as in Phoenix Arizona, that would go on to the application. When I didn't produce, my Az reputation was instantly ruined. The two power celebs that were slandered were to have massive content on Digidev along with their deal, as well another celebrity actually was filming inside the studio inside Digidev week in and week out which is located at 6630 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
The entire time that I was inside in Joe's presence he would constantly tell lies defacing these stars he told lies about and continuously told stories that were complete slander of very famous men and I know this cause I am personal friends with one of them.
I choose to keep these details to myself until legally covered as they are serious allegations and could jeopardize my life. I know for a fact Joe Bretz has only met these certain stars and has no standing friendships with either. Joe Bretz spent three months while I was in his presence lying and slandering great men with celebrity power here in Hollywood and in the world and I could not stand any longer the bad and negative things being said and done.
The most important part about all this the head of the operations Martin Greenwald sat by in the next office and allowed these lies and this money to be invested and borrowed and did nothing but repeat "we are a publicly traded corporation."
I have some personal info from the inside that other investors were promised telephone calls from the undisclosed celebrity should they invest money into Digidev or if enough money was invested that they would be taken out to a dinner with said celeb. For instance I was told if I brought $150,000 I would be "whisked off" as well to dinner with this person. He said if "you get me that payment I will get you a" half million dollar note" the next day and "my life would be changed forever". Many other investors came out to LA under the assumption that they would be paid for the airlines and their hotels to wind up struggling to leave broke. Or upcoming stars were promised they would have content in the "company that would shut Netflix down". Lies, that a leak to Google and Facebook caused interest in Digidev content and both were battling to buy it as high as "75 million dollars" were told to investors to lure them in.
I watched many employees work hard even the maintenance man built a sign from scratch hung it and wound up coming back irate because the $1500 job went unpaid. Even the privately contracted programmer to this day who is owed $70,000 has halted the project.
Joe recently tried to go around and make me look like the bad guy by threatening to file a restraining order when in my presence two or three times he mentioned and showed me guns. The most recent was last week, the Friday of Labor Day weekend when he showed up to give me $600 of the $2500 he promised to pay me that day by saying "I have a gun on me" in an attempt to scare me I have witnesses.
Many innocent Americans around the country and celebrities are being taken for a ride by Joseph Q Bretz and Martin Greenwald we need to do something to stop this as I know that public exposure of his enterprise Digidev would wake him up to pay back the multitude of thousands he owes investors around the country. Some of these investors put their last remaining dollars in hopes of the entertainment dream or the dream to meet these celebs he slanders or the dreams of being rich. Joe has borrowed so much money and taken so many investments that we are not even sure are legal at this point that this needs to be stopped it needs to become a public fact so that people do not invest their hardworking money into Digidev.
Me and my team are in Los Angeles to make a difference to make a change in the entertainment industry so that folks like Joe and Martin are not allowed to take peoples money and run, then come up with some kind of a flop, while claiming they are a public corporation, so that you never see your money again.
We are asking the investigative reporters of your news station to look into this matter immediately and please contact me so that we may stop the wrongs being done by Digidev in America this is not how we do business and this young man needs to be brought to justice for his defamation and slander of great men, as well as telling lies to hard working Americans to get their money out of them so that he can do whatever it is he's doing with the money. He owes everybody including his own employees.
Please help us make a stop to this. Thank you very humbly for your time please contact me I would be glad to publicly tell what I have witnessed and reported to my people regularly if I know it won't destroy my career and what's left of my life
As an inside witness and monitor to this entire situation since the month of June I have not mentioned everything as I am concerned with my well being and my family who has also been harassed and I am nearly about to lose my business and am practically in the streets dreading the day I walked into Digidev Tv and met Joseph Q Bretz.
I left a good life that had my beloved godkids in my life every day, my family has lost two children in my lifetime which is why I took a chance at revamping my career for them, out of pure love, and strong belief I can change things in their world before they are old enough to see the corruption and greed and evils of this world. I can not fail them, and we need your help thanks sincerely.
