Veritas Energy Management, L.L.C., Complainant


Anonymous, Author of Report #928355,


 Complainant Veritas Energy Management, Inc. (the “Complainant”) has challenged the truthfulness of certain specific statements (each, a “Statement”) posted by Author Anonymous (the “Author”) on the Ripoff Report website at www.ripoffreport.com as Ripoff Report #928355 (the “Report”). The Author accused the Complainant of scandalous and fraudulent activity. The Complainant denied all such allegations. The Author did not submit a response to the Complainant or any contact information. Therefore, in accordance with the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Rules (the “Rules), the Author waived their right to participate in this Arbitration. [continued below]....

..... By submitting a Report and a Complaint on the Ripoff Report websites, both the Complainant and the Author have agreed to submit the dispute to the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Program.

 In accordance with the Rules, the Arbitrator was asked to decide whether the challenged Statements were an opinion or a fact. If, and only if, the Statement was determined to be a statement of fact, the Arbitrator was asked to further decided if, by a preponderance of the evidence, to determine if the Statement was true or false. If the statement identified by the Complainant is determined to be an opinion, no determination will be made as to that particular Statement because an opinion cannot be determined to be true nor false.

 In this case, the Arbitrator had only the evidence submitted by the Complainant to consider. The evidence submitted included Ripoff Report #92855, Complainant’s Arbitration Statement, Complainant’s Witness Statements, and supporting documentation.

Each Statement challenged by the Complainant has been considered, together with any Witness Statements and Documents provided by the Complainant for determination of the truth or falsity of the Statement. The Author did not provide a response to the Complaint.

The Arbitrator determined that the certain statements challenged in the Report were false. Therefore, according to the VIP Arbitration Rules, those statements have been redacted.

Decided April 7, 2014

Steven J. Muehler Arrested!

AUTHOR: Bruno Allaire - ()

Looks like Kharma is finally catching up with Steven Muehler.  

He was arrested on October 23, 2012, for "Aggravated Battery - Offender should have known victim was pregnant."  See link below for more information.  I'm also attaching his mughot for all of you to see what this crook looks like. 

If you've been victimized by Muehler as well and have posted a report on this site, I strongly encourage you to re-post his photo on your own Ripoffreport so the whole world can see what this scumbag looks like.

Delray Beach PD Affidavit of Truth

AUTHOR: Bruno Allaire - ()

Attached is a notarized copy of an Affidavit signed by Officer Ken Brotz, the Delray Beach Police officer mentioned in this report, which supports the various assertions and statements of fact made in my first rebuttal above.  Please note that Officer Brotz reconfirms the same report #12-010282 stated by Mr. Muehler in his original RipoffReport posting as this was the same officer that Mr. Muehler spoke with when filing his initial report with the police.  After filing his police report, he promptly proceeded to go online and post this bogus report, as if he was the Delray Beach Police Department.

As you will see by reading through the attached document, I AM NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE for any of the crimes alleged by this two bit con man in his bogus report posted on this site with the simple goal of tarnishing my reputation.

If any of you reading this rebuttal have ANY DOUBT as to the authenticity of the attached Affidavit, I strongly encourage you to contact Officer Brotz at the number first provided in the original posting above to ask him about this document.  

Officer Brotz will also tell you that the Delray Beach PD did not upload this original posting as they would NEVER post something like this in a public forum regarding an open, ongoing investigation -- and this was the case on August 16, 2012, because that's the same day Mr. Muehler called them to file his report and I didn't speak to Officer Brotz until the following week!

False and misleading

AUTHOR: Bruno Allaire - (United States of America)

First of all, you should know that this report was NOT posted by the Delray Beach Police Department and I am not wanted by the police for ANY of the crimes alleged in this report.  I invite you to call Officer Ken Brotz of the Delray Beach Police Department at (561) 243-7832 to verify this information for yourself.  Feel free to mention this rebuttal as I have informed him that I would be posting this to clear my name.

We have good reason to believe that this report was actually falsely posted by none other than Steven J. Muehler, aka Steve Mueller of LAIC Venture Capital / Alta Vista / Delray Securities / Delray Securities Oil & Gas Fund, Inc. / LA Investment Capital BioFuels Fund / LAIC Entertainment & Media Fund / LAIC Oil & Natural Gas Fund / LAIC Real Estate Fund and most recently of Delray Global Capital and Delray Bancorp.

Search his name on this site and you will read numerous other postings about this two-bit con-man who talks a good talk but fails to deliver. If you are thinking of doing business with Steve Muehler, you are hereby forewarned stay away from him as he will only waste your time and money! Nothing good will come from your association with this low life piece of white trash.

Mr. Muehler can now add impersonating the Delray Beach Police Department to his long list of crimes and he is now using this website forum in an effort to tarnish my good name and reputation, much like he has attempted to blackmail Russell Stark, another one of his victims (read his posting on this site to learn more).  Officer Brotz and I spoke about this matter in great detail and he confirmed to me that the Delray Beach PD did not post this report.  He also confirmed that my name is free and clear of any criminal charges whatsoever.

Officer Brotz also agreed to contact the website owner to advise him of this false and misleading report, but in the meantime I feel the need to clear my name and set the record straight for anyone who happens to read this posting before it is removed, if it is ever removed.  

OK, so here is what REALLY happened.  Fact is that we were actually scammed for $10,000 by Steve Mueller of Delray Securities, LLC.  My two business partners and I traveled to South Florida (on our own dime, mind you) to find this crook and we happened to surprise him in his shiny new offices in Delray Beach, Florida.  Contrary to his posting, we did not break and enter the premises.  Instead we simply walked into an open office building in the middle of the day and subsequently walked right into his office suite since his suite door was wide open and the lights were on.  When we happened to surprise him face to face, we did in fact demand that he refund the $10,000 we wired him in mid-June and asked him to accompany us to TD Bank on Federal Highway in Delray Beach (which is where we wired him the money) to get a cashiers check for our $10,000 refund. 

As you could imagine, Muehler refused to comply and then he began to scream and yell at the top of his voice for us to leave his office at once saying that we were trespassing and threatening to call the police.  When it became apparent that the situation would rapidly devolve, I suggested that we leave and proceed to report him and his crimes to the proper authorities, now that we knew where to find him.  Little did we know that he would subsequently call the police to file a bogus criminal complaint and then post this slanderous and libelous report against us!

Do not believe a word of whatever this guy writes and/or tells you!  He is a sociopath and a pathological liar, who will say anything he needs to say in order to con you into sending him money and once he has your money, he rarely if ever returns your phone calls and/or e-mails.  If and when he does finally get back to you, nothing but lies and more lies come out of his mouth.  Its like he just cant help it.  He makes up story after story and excuse after excuse to explain why your funds havent been sent and we believed them for a while, but now its clear that he is nothing but a fraud and a thief. 

Many of you have posted your own stories on here about being scammed by this crook, who takes up front fees to supposedly raise investment capital for you through a variety of vehicles such as either going public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange or in the case or our company, preparation of a public securities offering pursuant to the California Intra-State Exemption (CA Rule 1001). 

We fell victim to his latest scam, which involved our wiring him $10,000 into Delray Securities Fixed Income Fund, Inc. to supposedly cover third party hard costs associated with the filing of CA Form 25102(n) with the California Department of Corporations.  He was purportedly raising $4 million for one of our oil and gas joint ventures from qualified investors in California through an intra-state offering.  After wiring him the $10,000, we subsequently learned that there is a Desist and Refrain Order against him issued by the California Department of Corporations dated August 25, 2010, for violations of Section 25110 of the California Corporations Code.  This Desist & Refrain Order states that he [Steve Muehler] is .hereby ordered to desist and refrain from the further offer or sale of securities, in the State of California, including but not limited to interests in limited liability companies, investment contracts, and/or membership units. 

So as a result of this order, he is unable to submit any filings to the California Dept of Corporations for any offerings in California whatsoever, so if he tells you he is doing this for your company, he is boldly lying to your face!  If you Google Desist and Refrain Order Steven J. Muehler it is the first link that comes up, so you can read all about this for yourself.

We are also convinced that part of Mr. Muellers scam is to create different personas, purported to be different people for whom he works (his boss) or who either work for him or with him.  These personas all have corresponding e-mail addresses theirname@delraysecurities.com and phone numbers to put up a good front as if he actually has a legitimate organization with other employees.  He even goes as far as using an address on his company letterhead (2255 Glades Road, Ste 324, Boca Raton, FL), which is actually the address for another legitimate and altogether unrelated company named Delray Financial Group, LLC.  We actually visited this address and discovered this for ourselves. 

A lucky coincidence?  I think not! Maybe he actually had an office in the same building and this is how he came up with his new company name, Delray Securities?  Who knows???  And Eric Waters?  Has anyone ever met this guy?  What about Charles Ambrose?  Both Eric and Charles have phone numbers and email addresses @delraysecurities.com, but Charles voicemail recording saying Hi this is Charles Ambrose was clearly Mr. Muellers voice.  Its all a part of his scam!  

In our case, Muehler faxed us a completely falsified subscription agreement from a purported investor named "Sean DeWitt" who twice failed to dial into conference calls that we had set up to discuss the project with him and who never once called and/or visited us in person before "agreeing" to make a $3.9 million investment.  This fictitious investor completely failed to perform on his executed subscription agreement and as a result Muehler proceeded to waste 8 weeks of our valuable time since we took that project off the market when we signed the subscription agreement with the purported investor.

If you were also scammed by Steve Mueller, I encourage you to contact me directly so that I can pass your specific details and contact information on to the state and federal authorities who are currently investigating him.  We are also part of a growing group of his victims who are joining together to pursue a civil case against him in an effort to recoup the monies stolen by him.  If you would like to join this group, please send me an e-mail with your story and contact information and I will make sure you are included in this effort.  One way or another, we will not rest until this scumbag is off the streets once and for all!!
