This man has been reported to Tom Martino (KDVR Denver) and has also shown up on ComplaintBoards.com.
This guy is a smooth talker; he claims he's written some books, which are entitled "The Talk" series. But I've discovered that he has cheated and lied to many other people, with whom I am in contact. For example, he has people work on his website or book covers and then doesn't pay them, or convinces investors he needs money to pay one of his employees, and then keeps the money himself.
I am a freelance editor/writer. Mr. Keith Hudson (Keith Hudson & Associates, LLC) contacted me through Craigslist in late September in response to my posting which offered my editing/writing services. We met once in person to discuss the position he had. He wanted me to enter into a contract with him, whereby he would pay me for my work-- $500 a week. I had a lawyer look over the contract and then signed it on November 5.(((REDACTED)))
Since then, he has not paid me at all for about eight weeks. I stopped doing work for him long ago, of course, but I have called him and he either doesn't call me back or blows me off. I have even driven to the address on the contract (a residence, it turns out) to attempt to get the money, and have had no success. I have billed extra charges for late/missed payment, but this has been to no avail.
This man keeps promising that he will pay you, but he doesn't. Stay away from him.
