Gonzalo Arzamendi (Arzuk Productions) in Ridgcrest California is possibly and most likely a fraud a liar and a scam. Please read on. Gonzalo Arzamendi (Arzuk Productions) in conjunction with an internet radio station started a world wide competition called The Battle of the Bands and the winner was to receive 1000 dollars. The competition was supposed to run from September 3rd to September 30th. 2011, and there were 41 contestants, but because of Gonzalos possible unscrupulous behavior they stopped the competition abruptly on September 26th after Gonzalo appeared to have gotten caught cheating on the votes and appeared to be trying to fix the competition.
It also appeared as if Gonzalo canceled The Battle of the Bands so that he wouldnt get a bad reputation. The radio station who was the other sponsor, however, remained detached from the drama and it also appeared as if the radio station was in no way involved or responsible for the deception that took place.

..... Gonzalo Arzamendi alone was the only person who appeared to be responsible for counting the votes and he was also the only person who appeared to be responsible for corrupting the 23 day long grueling battle.
Add up all the hours that the 41 contestants spent promoting themselves and add up all the hours that their friends, family and fans spent voting for them on facebook and via email and that figure would probably be well over 10,000 hours of peoples time involved. Now imagine that one man, Gonzalo Arzamendi, could possibly take all that hard work away from all those people simply because he was most likely the cause and the reason that the Battle of the Bands was shut down
prematurely declaring that there is no winner and that the 1000 dollar prize will be donated to charity.
It is truly amazing that one man could cause artists to be so disappointed in an online competition that they may never join one again. And it is also astounding how one man could ruin so many relationships on facebook. Imagine how disappointed all the voters were and how difficult it will be for those artists to get those facebook friends vote for them again.
And to think that if this man did it once he will probably do the same thing again. The Battle of the Bands was a huge disappointment in the eyes of thousands of people and it appears as if one man, Gonzalo Arzamendi, is the only person responsible for causing so many people to be so disenchanted with the potential fraud involved in ongoing and future online competitions. Their lives will never be the same.
Honesty is always the best policy.
Thank you from a concerned citizen
