William L Regas II owns/operates an escort site that is an interstate, organized prostitution ring.  He solicits a large number of  women who join his site to engage in violent sexual activity with him, gratis, in order for them to secure "status" on the board.  He then solicits money from the women to "support his site".  He holds GTG's  (get togethers) at public venues that he rents out and has shut down to the general public for the purpose of promoting prostitution.  These GTG's are attended by both the prostitutes and the johns.  Some known places are Anatomy in Cleveland, Zen in Station Square,  S Bar on Carson Street, and a club formerly known as Club Platinum.  William L Regas II will formulate a story to the venue owner in order to secure the venue, as he cannot tell the owners of the club the GTG's purpose is to  promote prostitution.  The male attendees have been known to solicit the non board members who are working the party to join the board and become prostitutes. 
William L Regas II also keeps soft files on the members of the board for informative purposes.  These files include personal information should he need that info in order to "out" members that dont obey the site rules.

William L Regas II also engages in Defamation of Character via the board posts.  The site rules, specifically #4 warn against DOC being against the rules of the site and sanctions/banning may be imposed if you perpetrate DOC.  Rule number 4 on the site is not enforced.

William L Regas II and the male members of the board denigrate women and treat them as if they are subhuman reminiscent of the days when slavery was legal.  The board is meant to give power back to prostitutes but instead makes the prostitutes dependent on securing positive reviews in order to garner popularity.  If the prostitutes dont perform up to the male member's standards they are rewarded with a negative review that will cut into their monetary gain.

I advise not giving any money to William Regas II and to exit the board or not join as the federal/state/local authorities have been advised of it's existence.  The news media has also been advised of it's existence.

Many of the women are afraid  of William L Regas II, but I know he is just a pathetic coward who uses intimidation tactics to get what he cannot get of his own volition.

Patricia Fees

AUTHOR: ScottB - (United States of America)

I am not a medical doctor, but I know Patrica Fees fairly well and I can honestly say that she is mentally unstable. She is a pathological liar, a home wrecker and quite possibly violent if provoked. I would stay as far away from this person as possible

Indys.com's official rebuttal

AUTHOR: PI - (United States of America)

This article was recently given to us by a staff member. I want to thank them for bringing it to our attention.

One of the best things about the internet is it gives people the right to legally discuss anything they like. The freedom of speech is a wonderful tool. Combined with the CDA its even better.  When used properly, it can inform and protect its audience. Unfortunately what you have all read here isn't that at all, but we will do our best to navigate the minefield this person has laid out before you all.

Clearly the person writing all of these responses is all the SAME person, except the author named Patricia Fees, which interestingly enough is actually the legal name of the individual who has started this ripoff report and has these major issues with the site. She is an ex member. (Was and still is a prostitute as she refers to the women on the site in all of her posts.)

Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn was a quirky poster, but never really an issue until she started posting information on other websites about us.

August 22nd, Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn met with a banned member and her acquaintance in Cleveland where they shared information about the site and other things. (this banned member, Patricia later said was making her whole story up, and it was a ploy for the site to raise money)

August 23rd, Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn posted information about a party that was planned on other websites that Indys has a relationship with.

August 23rd the site deactivated her account, thinking it was compromised due to her postings on other websites matching her last login information on our site.

August 24th Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn realized she was deactivated, and threw out a bunch of threats about suing us for defamation of character, for money, etc. We are anxiously waiting for such a lawsuit to arise so we have our day in court. As of today, this hasnt happened. We are more than willing to go to court and squash this nonsense. At
this point, legal counsel advised the site staff to have no further contact with this person, and some members even changed phone numbers, etc to stop the incessant harassment.

September 29th Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn registered the new handle gidgigogo, lied about her age (claiming she was 31, Patricia is 44) and posted an ad, began taking appointments (as a prostitute, her words) She then solicited members phone numbers and contact information in an attempt to out them and further extort them.

October 18th Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn is harassing and stalking site members, of which one has asked for her information for their own lawsuit, we are letting the attorneys handle that.

October 19th we extended an olive branch to settle the differences, obviously Patricia will not be allowed back on the site but we have no problems making things right with her. Offer stands, feel free to text me directly at 412-573-5960

Now to address certain issues Patricia has raised with the site:

No site is perfect. We had a pretty good system going before people like this decided to use it for their malicious behavior.

Patricia has raised multiple questions for us, and we are implementing changes based on that. Thank you for pointing out our flaws in these areas.

We used to allow members contact information for the sole purpose of matching up names and numbers, if a provider got a phone call from 412-555-1212 she could cross reference it to a particular members alert or vouch profile.

We have eliminated all contact information from the alert and vouch profiles on the site. It is a shame that in 8 years of the site running it took one person to use this information in a malicious and vile manner to compromise the safety of others.

Patricia Fees AKA CorriganBronwyn addresses the rule 4 of our site. Rule #4 is this:

You agree, through you use of this service, that you will not use Indys.com or it's affiliates, to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, threatening, invasive of
a person's privacy, or otherwise a violation of any law.

Defamation of site and staff - We reserve the right to deny membership to any person that has defamed the site or any staff member in any medium either on Indys or outside of Indys. Knowingly false and/or defamatory - If you know it's a lie, or an untrue put-down, then don't post it. Inaccurate - Same sort of thing. Although, in practice, if you post something about - for the sake of example - Providers Hours and it turns out to be wrong, no one is going to come after you with the editing pen. If you are doing your best to help someone, then that's great, it's one of things the site is here for. 
Abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing - This is where the whole "Personal Attack" thing stems from. I'm sure we can all think of a thread just recently where this has come into play. Basically, don't start on each other! If you disagree, that's fine. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and that's what makes for good debate. But make it personal and it goes.
Make it insulting, and it goes. You get the idea. Phrases such as "In my humble opinion..." (or "IMHO..."); "With all due
respect..."; and "The way I look on it.." are fine. (So long as you don't then put "you are talking out of your
ass..."). Phrases like "I hate all blondes, they are all ...";
"You are an utter idiot"; etc.etc.etc. are not. Attacks on particular sections of society are also covered by this rule...you all
know what I'm talking about here, I won't spell it out... 
Obscene, profane - The problem is, what do you classify as "obscene" or "profane"? Well...for the record, the Oxford
Dictionary definition of these two words are as follows...
 (1) Obscene - Indecent in a repulsive or very offensive way
 (2) Profane - adj. Irreverent, blasphemous. vb. To treat a thing with irreverence or lack of due respect.

Helpful, isn't it? At this point, it is largely down to the individual Admin's/Mod's discretion. It's up to us to draw our own boundaries and be as individually consistent as we can - we are only human, after all...
Basically, if it falls even vaguely under the above definition, then we are perfectly within our rights to edit it...if we don't, it's because we're feeling nice that day!
Threatening - I won't insult your intelligence by explaining that one. Invasive of a person's privacy - This basically means posting things about people on the Forums which they may not want made public...so full names;
addresses; phone no's.; pictures; details of their private lives; etc.etc.etc. If people want to put their own contacts on, that's fine, but don't go spreading anyone else's about...
Otherwise a violation of any law - If it's illegal, it goes. If it's encouraging others to do something illegal, it goes. You get the gist.

No where in these rules do we talk about the defamation of character. Simply site defamation, and staff defamation. Basically, if you hate the site, we have the right to refuse your membership. Why would we want you here, and why would you want to be here?

The part she STILL doesnt understand is Defamation of Character in the legal sense is this:

Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases the respect,
regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person.
Defamation may be a criminal or civil charge. It encompasses both written statements, known as libel, and spoken statements, called slander.

This does not encompass someone saying Corrigan Bronwyn is a prostitute It COULD encompass someone saying Patricia Fees is a .

There is no court system for fake names and handles on the internet. Once you put that persons legal name into the equation, then they have the right to sue you, press charges, file restraining order, cease and desist letters, etc

She posts a screenshot alleging proof of pimping activity, this is simply not the case, in the screenshot 
we have posted below you can clearly see it was simply a way to put two people in contact with each other, the person was not a member and she was trying to reconnect with a select group of members.

A big sticking point Patricia has is the parties. The parties that she attended every one she could until she was banned, and after being banned still actively tries to find out information about them and attend. Doesnt sound like someone that REALLY has that big of an issue with them

In Patricias report she notes that federal/state/local law enforcement has been made aware of the sites existence. They were aware of its existence long before Patricia ever became a member.  The site has legal counsel for the express
reason that we want to continue to operate within the guidelines of the law.This isnt going to change.

An excerpt from Ripoff reports own legal page, and this may help explain WHY sites like Indys are legal:

This is because of a federal law called the Communications Decency Act or "CDA", 47 U.S.C. 230.
Because this important law is not well known, we want to take a moment to explain the law, and to also explain that the filing of frivolous lawsuits can have serious consequences for those who file them, both parties and their
attorneys.
The CDA is part of our federal laws. An excellent Wikipedia article discussing the history of the law can be found here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_230_of_the_Communications_Decency_Act In short, the CDA provides that when a user writes and posts material on an interactive website such as Ripoff Report, the site itself cannot, in most cases, be held legally responsible for the posted material.
Specifically, 47 U.S.C. 230(c)(1) states, "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

This means, Indys cannot be held legally liable for information that is posted by its members. Just like Ripoff Report cant be sued for the outlandish accusations in this report Only Patricia Fees can.  We want to thank Ripoff Report for giving us the stage to give our side of this story.

#6 UPDATE Employee

the indy's administrative team's ineptness-BLUEMAX

AUTHOR: delectable - (United States of America)

this is an example of an alert on indys.com which was submitted by two different prostitutes for the same john. In the first part of the alert, the prostitute stipulates she doesnt want her username associated with the alert, but the site attaches her username anyway. this oversite by the sites  "alert poster" certainly begs the questions, "Is the site even reading the alert and vetting it? Is the site really concerned about safety? If the site WAS concerned about safety, wouldnt the "alert poster" who is ultimately posting this alert after it is submitted by the prostitute, honor the request of the prostitute to NOT post her username?"  It appears the site merely cross-references the username of the alert to make sure the submitted username is registered on indys.com. so, an individual wanting to allege serious accusations against another member, appears to have "carte blanche" to do so proven by the lack of honoring the original request by the prostitute.

Also, the site claims "reviews/alerts" are just fantasy and are really "figments of the poster's imagination".  The site uses a fantasy disclaimer for reviews/alerts for legal reasons.  If the site's "fantasy" disclaimer is valid, why would a poster take the time to write something that seems quite real in her mind?  In addition, the person the alert is being written about seems to be very unstable and a danger to the "community". Certainly makes one wonder: is this isolated
behavior for a john or does this constitute the "average" behavior of the "johns" on the site.  I would then be so bold as to wonder:  are these "johns" possibly involved in more sinister activities than just trolling for prostitutes on the internet?

notice the cyber bullying/stalking throughout the thread.   a total of two times, a poster states she wants to "kill" a specific person and queries if anyone wants to direct her to the location of that individual's residence in order to perpetrate her violent ideologies/psychotic desire. scccaaaarrrry, but not surprising.

Sour Grapes

AUTHOR: Patricia Fees - (United States of America)

The person that wrote all of these is named Patricia Fees. A cocaine fueled psychopath with no clear agenda. She was originally banned from Indys, the site she loves? Now all of a sudden she has a grudge.

Compare the name on the below post I found on Indys with the name on her screenshots from the beginning of this crock of posts.

I fail to see how any of this is a rip-off. Even if half of it was true, judging by the conversation she is having with herself I'd venture to say less than 1/4 of it is true. 

What Patricia didn't tell you is that she herself has an actual criminal record of promoting prostitution. I for one think she isn't being 100% forthcoming in her report here. 

Thank you for the fun read Patricia. You have quite a teenage imagination for a 44 year old. Too bad you were born almost a week after April Fool's day or that may explain part of your behavior.

PS. Defamation of character doesn't pertain to online persona's. Only when you use a person's real identity. Guess you didn't learn as much as you want everyone else to think you did at Pitt.

If any of you want to see some nude face pictures of Patricia, stay tuned. I'm sure her own situation would relish at that particular thought.

more posts from indys from "secure" areas

AUTHOR: jerry - (USA)

i need to clarify the owner/operator of Indys.com, William L. Regas II, operates out of Pittsburgh, PA.  He also goes by the alias of PI (his username on the site of www.indys.com.)  He is also heavily referenced on several  car sites that specialize in modifying BMWs  and on these sites Mr. Regas II has been categorized as an alleged "scam artist" by members that have tried to professionally employ his services.  you can google his posted phone number, name, and company (CENO illusions) and see these references.

here are two more posts from Mr. Regas'II site that are both from areas Mr. Regas II (PI) claims as secured "indys" site areas.  The 1st general area is the "Ladies Lounge".  This area can only be accessed if you a "vouched" prostitute.  The specific area this post is from is the "vouched client review" area.  Here, prostitutes can "review" tricks so other prostitutes can ascertain general info on tricks.  Physical description and hygiene/psychological/safety information can be garnered here.  As you can see, personal info, short of a legally identifying name, is disclosed and posted about the trick.  Many tricks believe their private info (career, vehicle, family situations) are protected, but as is evident in this  post, it is not.  And some simple "connecting the dots" can certainly "out"  the trick to their employer, friends, or family.  

The 2nd general area is the "Silvermine" area.  This area is for members who opt to financially support the site.  You gain access to the area after a minimum donation of $500. this post shows the degrading way tricks continually depict/reference the prostitutes.  this response is from a silvermine member of the site and is responding to the previous post (the first update by the author; 1st pic) to the "ad" where William L. Regas II, (aka PI) is pimping a prostitute.
