AUTHOR: Mike - (United States of America)


If you are so honest, why do you keep changing your name?  Admit it, you take advantage of people.  If you weren't a scammer I wouldn't have found all of this information about you under Musk.  Your response is what would be expected from a cheat.  Stating that I'm someone you've crossed or played, shows that you have many more.  There is something disturbing with you and what you write. Your response defending yourself is evil. You're hoping that it will clear your name so that you can scam more people.  Who else would go to such lengths?   If you only scammed me, you would know who I am but you can't because there are legions.  Think about it, Dan, Dane, Dave, David or whatever it is now.

Defamation of two individuals good name,perhaps due to ignorance and jumping to conclusions or maybe just blatant jealously and hate towards one of these individuals.

AUTHOR: Mark A Concerned Citizen - (United States of America)

Defamation of two individuals good name,perhaps due to ignorance

and jumping to conclusions or maybe just blatant jealously and hate towards one

of these individuals.

Mike in Chicago,Illinois. (probably not a real name or


I know one of the individuals (Dave) you mentioned in your post.

What always amazes me of an unregulated site like this is anyone can post

anything,true or not, anytime they desire. The site originates I am told by a

legal firm out of the Cayman Islands and the US has no extradition to shut it

down or process serve the owner,although many have tried. In many cases

competition or angry ex employees or maybe an upset ex-spouse/dating

partner,etc. will post false and erroneous things in here to try and shut down

or steer business away from competition or just try and ruin someone's good


Dave is not a crook,hustler,criminal,creep or con man. True he was

mistakenly charged with taking $170,000 in fees for background checks for

commercial project processing,but he was exonerated after it was easily proven

beyond a shadow of doubt, he did not collect $170,000 in fees for commercial

background checks.

His forensic defense proved conclusively the sloppy work done by

the various government authorities,after they had received a few upset calls wondering

who this man was and that they had no funding results of projects submitted in

that time frame. The authorities never sat down with Dave to discuss things and

just decided to arrest him first and ask questions later. I guess they wanted

some sort of element of surprise as they crashed into his home and all they did was look at deposits into his corporate bank account from 1/1/2007 to 9/30/2009 that totaled that $170,000.00

amount to do this. There was no break down as to what the fees were collected for!  What

sloppy work by our tax dollars who pay for their salaries. What a waste of time

for all.

Again,Dave proved conclusively that the deposits were mainly for a

mortgage lead selling business he ran selling Internet leads he generated to loan officers

nationwide (at $600.00 for 50 leads) and also a mortgage and commercial training

seminar tuition course he taught for his new branch managers or any loan

officers who wanted training (at $2,000.00 for three days) from a mortgage

company he managed,residential mortgage loans he processed and closed as a

mortgage processor and less than $3,000.00 in $600.00 per file in "processing

fees" not "background checks" that Dave charged early on in the commercial

processing for private equity transactions. The files are sometimes were a good 6

inches thick with proformas,project financials,feasibility studies, executive

summaries,principal resumes,extensive google searches of principals,courthouse

record searches,intelius.com paid searches for criminal records,paid credit reports on

principals,etc. that Dave did at his time and expense on a new project that took him anywhere from 4

hours to 12 hours or more to assemble,audit and review for submission to an equity group for underwriting. Dave was just charging a low reasonable consulting processing fee for his time,as he was on straight commission.  There was no big score here at only $600.00 a file! 

Dave stopped collecting small up front processing fees after a few

months,as his equity group then started to pay him for that service directly

after submission and the wires Dave received did show that they came from a real

private equity group indeed. The equity group did the background searches (not Dave,the middleman) and collected their fees directly from the project principals and eventually as the market

changed,Dave did close private equity transactions and was paid directly from

the private equity group for successful fundings as he still does to this day.

All the fees were deposited into Dave's one corporate account as

his total business income to make it easy to pay his proper IRS taxes on the income

generated,as he did. I was amazed by the sloppy work by the authorities and how

in this country states "innocent until proven guilty" is not realized by the

masses and incorrect press releases are blasted to the public media and then

never have statements retracted by authorities when they are proven wrong! 

The three counts (complaints) that were just coerced by the

authorities with their intimidation and strong arm tactics, never paid

Dave any money at all! No money paid to Dave!  The prosecutor was relying on only hearsay of weak

witness testimony,as they had no emails,recorded calls,signed documents or any

proof that Dave took money for background searches and then never submitted

files.  In fact Dave supplied a plethora of proof he did his job as an honest

business.   They had no case!

One complaintant was a developer, another a mortgage broker and the third was

also a mortgage broker and all in different areas of the country. It is all public record! None of them had ever meet Dave and were only upset because the market made it impossible to fund projects,they

had trouble communicating directly with Dave at the time when his mother was

dying of cancer and Dave was away and they all perhaps were in serious financial

dire straights and needed money quickly,so were on the edge. Dave was just a" scapegoat" that they

vented their frustrations upon because the crashing lending market again made it

impossible to fund things in that time frame. 

This stupidity caused Dave to endure two IRS audits (that he passed

with no problems) as well as expensive legal fees to prove his innocence,then even

though he was exonerated the system makes the defendant pay of all the court

costs and investigation costs also! What a system! His stellar honest reputation has been damaged and cost him unknown loss of income,but he survives and is successful to this day. This system is wrong to make the defendant pay for the mistakes and incompetence of their authorities!

Mike you have took it upon yourself to post slander of two

different named individuals with the same sir names,located in different cities

from simple quick google searches a 10 year old could do. Think of the harm you are causing.

You lost no money,probably never spoke or met Dave (maybe only got an email from Dave) and you probably missed out on an real opportunity to actually fund a project due to you jumping to conclusions,if you truly had a project to submit for group review.

It is vigilantes like you,Mike, with your stupidity that spread hate and hurt the good name of people. In the future try to think before you post wild things on the Internet.
