I am writing this because there are so many people out there looking for information on Offendex.com and there is so much incorrect info on the web about them . We, (a group of over 70 people who have been harassed by Offendex.com) have spent the last two months gathering information on them, speaking with attorneys and reporting Offendex.com to the proper authorities. The information here is current and true to the best of our findings.

The Owner is Brent Marshall Oesterblad and Sarah Shea. 

Offendex.com and Offendexdata.com . They also own Onlinedetective.com , ATA Arizona, Civic Sentry llc, Sarah's Kitchen llc., and a few other inactive business's.

Address:  23623 N Scottsdale Rd #D3-218 Scottsdale, AZ 85255

Phone: 480-967-6555 and 480-967-6777 . The phone is also for their travel business called "ATA Arizona". 

Offendex. [continued below]....
.....com and Onlinedetective.com both have more scam, fraud and extortion complaints than I could even link so if you're looking for other complaints just Google "Offendex Scam" or "Offendex Fraud" and read until your eyes bleed. A great website for information regarding Offendex.com and to get in touch with others that have been wronged by them is  http://www.offendexextortion.co.cc it is not a for-profit website and is there only for helping others that are having problems with Offendex.com .

Some states like California and Georgia are looking into passing laws that will restrict what websites like Offendex.com is allowed to do. Indiana has passed a law that will be in effect in July 2013 that will limit sites like Offendex.com on what they are allowed to do (I'm not saying what they are doing now is not against the law). What Offemdex.com is doing right now is nothing short of harassment, slander and extortion and I fully believe it will catch up to them very soon.

Melvin CHILD MOLESTER Wayne Domingue AKA Wayne Dominguez

AUTHOR: Offendex - ()

No-contest plea comes back to haunt La. man years later

(Below is copy from a recent news article published in the Arizona Republic pertaining to this website.)

Child Molester Melvin Wayne Domingue

Child Molester Melvin Wayne Domingue

“What I really hope happens to the website operators is that they get shut down,” he said.

Melvin Dominguez said he never imagined that a no-contest plea in 1999 could be used more than a decade later to make innocent people suffer.

 The 58-year-old Lafayette, La., man said his ex-wife accused him of child molestation during a custody dispute. He said he took a deal that did not require him to register as a sex offender or to spend any time in prison.

 A bureaucratic snafu in 2005 caused his name to appear on the Lafayette Parish sex-offender registry until a judge ordered it removed in 2009. A year later, Dominguez said he sold his house, moved and put the incident behind him.

 Until his phone rang in 2012. The caller was the woman who had bought his house. The single mother and schoolteacher was in a panic because she found her address listed on a sex-offender website called Offendex.com, he said.

 “She told me how her children were living a nightmare and were now very uncomfortable in their own home,” Dominguez said. “She said she was almost too scared to sleep there.”

 Dominguez said he agreed to help because it was the right thing to do. He said he believed all he had to do was to explain that he no longer lived in the house and the website would remove the woman’s address from the site.

 But that’s not what happened. Dominguez, whose story is supported by payment and property records, said he paid $79 for a review request, and operators rejected it. Offendex instead offered $199 for a no-questions-asked removal, which Dominguez also paid.

 Offendex refunded Dominguez’s $199 and once again published his old address. He said e-mails from website operators accused him of disparaging Offendex.

 Dominguez said the woman’s neighbors received cards postmarked from Arizona giving Dominguez’s profile, as if he still lived at her address. Dominguez said the woman moved out.

 “Innocent people shouldn’t have to suffer for (my) misdeeds,” he said.

 Dominguez said he hired an attorney and filed complaints with authorities in Louisiana and Arizona. Offendex shut down last year. But its operators continue to post Dominguez’s profile and old address on a new website, SORArchives.com.

 

Before our rebuttal to the Melvin’s portion of this article, we would like to point out that once again the last name of Dominguez is incorrect, and this is one of the aliases used by Melvin.  The last alias we know he was using is Wayne Dominguez . His Real Name Is Melvin Wayne Domonigue (with a “G”)

Additionally, here is his archived record on this website.

Melvin also says the owner that bought his house had to move, As today’s date 08/08/13 the last sale was 2010.
Doc Num: 201000016379 Date: 05/04/2010 Amount: $195,000 Trans. type: Cash Sale
Doc Num: 50017903 Date: 04/26/2005 Amount: $93,860 Trans. type: Transfer of Property

This website’s Response Is Below

A “No-Contest Plea Of Child Molestation” Still Means A Child Molestation CONVICTION.

In an article published earlier this year, Melvin Wayne Dominque (his real name) said “he never imagined that a no-contest plea in 1999 could be used more than a decade later to make innocent people suffer.” As is typical of many convicted sex offenders, they rarely take responsibility for their own actions. Melvin not only wishes to pass off the unforeseen circumstances of his horrendous crimes onto others, he attempts to present himself as some sort of concerned benevolent paragon. The article attempts to sugarcoat the reality that Melvin pleads GUILTY to CHILD MOLESTATION. You do not accept a plea for such a heinous crime unless the prosecution has a solid case based on substantial evidence. Anyone innocent of such charges would fight such allegation if they were false to the bitter end. Once we get beyond his self-serving hyperbole, the fact that cannot be disputed is Melvin Wayne Domingue is a convicted child molester.

According to Melvin “he took a deal that did not require him to register as a sex offender or to spend any time in prison. A bureaucratic snafu in 2005 caused his name to appear on the Lafayette Parish sex-offender registry until a judge ordered it removed in 2009.” Had the “investigative journalist” who authored the article actually done even the most basic due diligence research on such claims, he would have found some obvious inconsistencies in Mr. Dominque’s version of events. The only potential “bureaucratic snafu” would have been Melvin NOT appearing on the Sex Offender Registry between 1999 and 2005, as it is stipulated by Louisiana Statutes (the law) as a requirement that CANNOT be circumvented by plea deals with the prosecution or ordered by Judges (See Court of Appeal of Louisiana, State of Louisiana vs. Charles Griffin, No. 99-K-2025, November 17, 1999 – http://caselaw.findlaw.com/la-court-of-appeal/1357419.html.)  It was discovered in 2005 that Melvin was required by law to be placed on the Sex Offender Registry, and the previous mistake was corrected. In 2009, Melvin had reached the 10-year minimum from his conviction date, at which time he was allowed to petition the courts to be removed from further registration requirements. All the legal wrangling in the Louisiana courts aside, it is completely irrelevant to the dissemination of the factual data of Melvin’s charges and conviction that appear in the SORAchives database. The profile represents a PUBLIC RECORD legally obtained and was, in fact, released into the public domain. Whether Melvin was required to be registered or when he was required to do so with the Louisiana Sex Offender Registry is immaterial to a private database displaying archived public records. It is indisputable that the profile found on SORArchives is factual – Melvin Wayne Dominque is a convicted child molester.

 

The article explains Melvin became aware of his  SORARCHIVES profile when he received a call in 2012. “The caller was the woman who had bought his house. The single mother and schoolteacher was in a panic because she found her address listed on a sex-offender website…. Melvin said he agreed to help because it was the right thing to do.” Although such sentiments would appear magnanimous, the STORY is nothing but an elaborate fabrication. Melvin did receive a call from the woman who had purchased his home, but she is not a single mother. She is a schoolteacher and she does have two children, but she lives with her husband Rod (Melvin tried a disgraceful rouse to evoke emotions of empathy for MELVIN as some sort of a sympathetic “good guy” helping the damsel in distress – he is NOT) as evidenced by the email sent by Melvin on October 05, 2012 where he writes: “I am with Mr. and Mrs. XXXXX, the current owners of my old residence.”  She had called Melvin, but to inform him she contacted the Teachers Union for supported legal assistance and would be retaining a Union paid attorney to litigate a claim of “non-disclosure” when selling the house. He had NOT disclosed the address as being associated with a convicted child molester.  Had the “investigative journalist” researched the current ownership of the property – locating the name and phone number of the owners is easily obtainable – the true story would have been revealed.  Perhaps a LITTLE due diligence was called for in collaborating Melvin’s STORY – a simple phone call (like we did), would have been the professional course of action to clarify the truth. The email received from Melvin dated November 1, 2012 tells the REAL story:

(Below is one of the emails from Melvin after he was refunded)

=================================================================================================================

From: Wayne Dominque waynedominque@att.net

Date: Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 5:33 AM

Subject: Profile removal request

“If it is an accounting error, let me know and I will do the $199 PayPal fee again. I only have this email address as a contact, because I had to discontinue using my phone, cause Mrs. XXXX gave the phone number to the lawyer for the Louisiana Teachers Association, which she is a member of, cause she is a teacher and to the Melvin Wayne Domingue that lives in Lafayette. Both called me while I was in Lafayette, the lawyer wanted me to meet him for information and the Domingue guy wanted to meet for who knows what. My wife and I decided to pack up and get the hell out of Louisiana and head back to Oregon, realizing it was a trick to get me back to Lafayette for confrontations with these people. My wife saw Mrs. XXXXX get the license plate numbers off of our rental car, which spooked us, but we rented it at the Dallas/Ft Worth airport so I am really not worried about wha9t game she is playing. I do not want to call Mrs. XXXXXX to see if she is finally satisfied now, because I don’t want her getting my new phone number. Now I have the lawyer and the Domingue in Lafayette emailing me, so I will get rid of this email address after I hear from you.”

With Best Regards,

Mel

=================================================================================================================

In fact, Melvin was on the run. In the article, he claimed to be some benevolent Good Samaritan working with a single mother just trying to “do the right thing.”  This was a complete distortion, if not an outright lie. Not surprisingly, after all, Melvin Wayne Domingue is a convicted child molester.

It is true that Melvin had paid for removal from the database and the monies were returned. It was determined after receipt of the removal request that Melvin did not qualify for removal per the stated terms of deletion as published on the website. First, it became apparent Melvin was conducting the transaction and using an alias, that of Wayne Dominquez. Second, it was determined that Melvin had engaged in multiple incidences of harassing and threatening behavior toward an individual associated with the research department of the site. This included, but was not limited to, intrusive calls all hours of the day and night to the personal residence of the associate and included threats of bodily harm. Third, the agreement included Melvin providing a “verified” current address per email dated October 5, 2013.  The information was not provided as agreed upon.

The article also states Melvin made the preposterous claim the “neighbors received cards postmarked from Arizona giving Domingue’s profile, as if he still lived at her address. Domingue said the woman moved out.” The family did NOT move out and still reside at the address. There was not a post card sent by SORAchives to this neighborhood. Both points should have been the most basic of research of an “investigated journalist” to confirm. Is the family still residing at the residence? A reasonable request would have been for Melvin to provide as evidence to support such an outrageous claim one of the “cards postmarked from Arizona.”  Wouldn’t such a request be standard due diligence performed by any professional? It was intentionally neglected, as no such evidence existed, and such an acknowledgement would have discredited the STORY that was being manufactured.

The article concluded by claiming, “Melvin said he hired an attorney and filed complaints with authorities in Louisiana and Arizona.” It can be stated without reservation that no complaints filed by Melvin were received from the Attorney General Offices of Arizona or Louisiana. Also, no contact was initiated by an attorney representing the convicted child molester Melvin Wayne Domingue. The article and all claims are complete fabrications.

Offendex.com Ripped Us off of the Removal Fees

AUTHOR: Wonnie - (USA)

Update on the home of the old sex offender:

The new owners/residents of the old home of the sex offender located him and he willing paid the $79 removal fee and was rejected, but was offered a $199 removal fee, which he paid and gave receipts of his removal payments from Offendex.com to the new owners of his old home so that the new owners could have as proof that he paid to have his old profile with their address removed from the Offendex.com website database.

His profile was Not Removed and is now on the Front Page of the Offendex.com website with a Reward for Information from Offendex.com and a Picture of the new owners Home. The new owners are Overwhelmed and their CHILDREN are still being Terrorized by their Address with a Picture of Their Home listed on Offendex.com as a sex offender registered address. The new owners are again attempting to locate the old sex offender who has moved out of state to have him follow up with Offendex.com with having his old and outdated Offendex.com profile removed, if he can ever be found again. 

These CHILDREN are still being Terrorized by the Offendex.com website and have been Ripped Off by the Offendex.com Removal Process, which is simply an Extortion tactic. This Family is Not and will Not have a very happy holiday season, because of the Offendex.com website and this Family will Never live a comfortable life in their dream home, which is now a Nightmare Home due to Offendexcom. 

Just Simply Unbelievable and at a lost for words that Terrorist and Extortionist live right here among us in the USA. 

Thank You Ripoffreport.com for helping us and we can provide receipts of these Rip Off removal fees.

#4 General Comment

OFFENDEX.COM is an EXTORTION and HARASSMENT Website

AUTHOR: Wonnie - (United States of America)

My friend bought a home that a previous sex offender had lived in prior to his being expunged and removed from all LEGAL and FREE sex offender websites in 2003. She is being continuously harassed and her Children are Living a Nightmare because of the Offendex.com and the Onlinedective.com websites. The owners of Offendex.com should be on a Sex Offender Registry Website for the Abuse they puts Families and CHILDREN through and the websites need to be Shut Down. My friend is stressed out about these websites and beyond herself and friends worry about her.

Just recently we started searching for answers and now have them thanks to the Author of this RipOff Report about Offendex.com and thanks to you Larry for your comments as well. We now have more information and we have lawyers in the family with the Louisiana State Attorney General's Office.

Terrorizing Children is a serious crime in Louisiana and it Looks like Uncle Black is going to be headed to Arizona, knocking on some doors and dragging some people back to Louisiana to send them off to Angola for the rest of their natural born days.....:):):)

Brent Marshall Oesterblad claims to not own Offendex.com

AUTHOR: Larry - (United States of America)

I have been in contact with someone from Offendex.com via email named Brent Marshall. After several attempts at having a civilized conversation with Brent Marshall he resorted to the harassing defaming abusive language that I have heard so many others speak of that he is known for and is also evident here. The types of things this Brent Marshall would say is exactly to the T what Brent Marshall Oesterblad is saying here on his rebuttal. Using the terms sick, twisted and most convincing for me using the term Sandusky clan exactly as he does here. Personally there is no question in my mind, especially now, that the Brent Marshall that emails people from Offendex.com is in fact Brent Marshall Oesterblad. Others have shown me all the things that point directly toward Brent Marshall Oesterblad as the man behind Offendex.com but for me, this rebuttal actually just wiped out any little doubt I may have had. So in essence I guess I am in a way thanking Brent.

I Am Not the Owner of Offendex.com

AUTHOR: Brent - (United States of America)

I am not now - nor have I ever been an owner of the website Offendex.com. I am not now nor have I ever been an administrator for the website Offendex.com. The only "harassment" that has occurred is these sick and twisted Convicted Sex Offenders are so busy trying to blame someone - anyone - for their own actions that they just want to throw mud against the wall. And prior to these insidious attacks against my family, it was another undeserving family named Neal (that I do not have any idea who they are) That has come in the form of posting false information just like this one - phone calls, emails, letters make legal and physical threats from these convicted sex offenders against myself and family members. One an 80 year old retiree at his home, a niece who is a 19 year old student and others. Sick individuals. So my rebuttal is this - if you think your harassment is some how justified - by all means SUE ME for your perceived injustice by this website. I will look forward to counter suing your pants off for slander, harassment, threats etc etc. The difference will be that I will deal with the FACTS and the LAW and not wild unsubstantiated false accusations. I dare you.

So these convicted sex offenders like Michael Fugate of Kansas (responding to a ridiculous complaint filed with the AZ AGs office that will be very interesting along with the legal action being pursued today) and the Sandusky Clan ringleader Larry Rayburn Anderson - a charged child molester who didn't just touch the girls - he admittedly had sexual intercourse with both a 13 year old and a 14 year old, these are the guys calling my family and the Neal's family all hours of the night with their profanity filled physical threats. Oh yeah - they are the ones claiming "harassment". Wow.
