The investigations Team in Tampa Florida has been investigating KELLY WILSON and her barrage of WORTHLESS CHECKS she has put out on a local Company in order to get her publications documents out to the public in the local area. It seems she is publishing a brochure filled with advertisement from Tampa business's and has the GALL to put out WORTHLESS CHECKS in order she obtain her required literature.

We investigated the source of the incident and found that she remitted three separate checks to a local Printer in the amounts of $802.50 on July 6, 2012 ; $1,000.00 on July 13th, 2012, and a 3rd check for an additional $ 500.00 on July 27th, 2012. That is GALL and a THIEF no matter how you look at it.

We then contacted KELLY WILSON who blatantly HUNG UP on our investigations team when questioned about the checks. 

A week went by and we contacted the Printing company she wrote the checks to and were told, that this brazen women had made no  restitution to any of the checks. We in fact found e-mails from this KELLY WILSON and DAVIS ISLAND MAGAZINE poo-pooing the entire situation of NOTICES OF DEMAND with moronic e-mails to the PRINTING COMPANY like nothing has happened. This is one BRAZEN B#@$&  to say the least.

It was also determined by our investigations team  that she had taken orders from her NEW CLIENTS to publish their ads in the magazine, but she didn't have the money to send out these ads to the local area public who paid for the ads. Is this GALL OR WHAT ? We also returned to the Printer who stated that KELLY WILSON had the GALL to want to place " another order ", but had made NO ATTEMPT to pay off the THREE PRIOR WORTHLESS CHECKS.

It is our understanding a CERTIFIED LETTER was sent to her residency and to the business address and she IGNORED both letters.

The outside concern who is now involved with this case is going to the HILLSBOROUGH DISTRICT ATTORNEY with the three Worthless Checks along with the receiver of the WORTHLESS CHECKS to bring CRIMINAL CHARGES against KELLY WILSON & HER COMPANY, as well as bringing a lawsuit with the CIVIL COURT in HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY COURT on TWIGGS STREET in TAMPA and will be suing KELLY WILSON for THREE TIMES THE VALUE OF EACH CHECK...PLUS... the actual CHECK. They are going to request an ARREST of KELLY WILSON in addition to the CIVIL LAWSUIT.

This is a THIEF plain and SIMPLE. She has NO CONCERN FOR ANYBODY but her OWN GREED. She has no concern for the PRINTER, his business or his family. Now she will find out the " HARD WAY" that you can't SCREW PEOPLE and expect to get away with being a THIEF. LAUGH THAT OFF Ms. Wilson..... I WILL BE THERE FOR THE SENTENCING.

This slandering biased report contradicts everything I believe in and personally stand for!

AUTHOR: Kelly Wilson - (USA)

It is hard to believe that after almost 5 years I am responding to these horrific words intended to slander me in the community.  I never intended to respond.  I always felt that if I did I was somehow validating this direct bashing attempt of my character.  However, the more I grow as a leader in the Tampa Bay Community, the more I am "googled" the more these awful words grow in the search engines.  The more I try to do to better my community, the more these words haunt me.  I have worked so hard for so many years to be right where I am today.  I have worked extremely hard to be in a position to share other peoples stories of trial, tribulation and success and assist others in achieving their personal and business goals. 

My mission in life is to ensure that as many people as possible fulfill theirs and by me doing so I am ultimately fulfilling my own.  This slandering, biased report contradicts everything I believe in and personally stand for.  

First of all, any legitimate complaint would not be posted anonymously.  There was no "investigative team" investigating me.  These words came from either, Express Printing President, John Towson (a Christian business man) or the dreadful debt collector he hired to terrify me.  I do not recall the horrific debt collectors name, I wish I did.  I wish I had kept the voicemails he left me.  Knowing what I know today, the way the horrifying debt collector conducted business was illegal.  

2012 was probably one of the toughest years of my life.  My Mother who had always lived with me in Florida was diagnosed with terminal lymphoma and moved back to the midwest for her treatments and to live with my sister.  I was beyond devastated.  Through that year on top of trying to recover emotionally from my Mothers terminal illness and moving away I was also recovering from the real estate market crash (I was a real estate broker for over a decade), I was also trying to recover financially from a bad divorce, my 14 year old Shih Tzu died, (actually the same weekend my Mother moved), my mini cooper I had at the time broke down and I was told it was $8500 to fix, which I didnt have.  I could go on and on but it doesnt matter, we all have a story.  That year is part of mine.  It was tough.  The only time in my life that I have truly dealt with depression, other than when my Mother passed away, November 2015.  Like they say, what doesnt kill you makes you stronger.  Because of everything I have endured and survived, I am the strong resilient being I am today.  

2012, I reached out to John Towson of Express Printing and asked him if he would let me print my publication through him and let me make payment arrangements on the amount owed.  He agreed.  I paid $1000 as a deposit.  He printed my d.i. publication which I picked up.  I went back after the fact and dropped off multiple post dated checks to cover the balance.  This was to make him feel confident that I would pay the balance and as a convenience for me so that I didnt have to send him payments, he already had them.  The first check cleared no problem however, a couple additional checks I had trouble covering on the dates established due to what I mentioned above.  I communicated with him often to discuss what I was going through, I needed more time.  I was probably too honest with him, as my words were completly twisted around, not sure if by John Towson of Express Printing or later by the frighful debt collector he hired.  

I had every intention on paying the debt owed but nonetheless the frightening calls from the debt collector would not stop.  I did hang up on the awful debt collector, probably a few times but no one deserves to be yelled at, harassed, cursed at and talked to the way he attempted to talk to me. I have never received calls from anyone that I refused to talk to.  

Long story short, the balance owed to John Towson of Express Printing was paid years ago yet I am still dealing with the consequences of the words in this biased report.  How is that fair?

Did I owe John Towson of Express Printing money?  YES  

Was the balance to John Towson of Express Printing paid?  YES, years ago.

Was I ever arrested for owing John Towson of Express Printing money?  NO 

 I actually published and printed d.i. Magazine from 2011 through 2014.  

I have no idea why someone would deliberately try to ruin anyone as an individual or as a business professional.  Today there are laws against that.  I am in fact currently consulting with an attorney to file a "defamation of character lawsuit" against John Towson of Express Printing and the horrifying debt collector he hired.  I may not recall the repulsive debt collectors name but I am confident that John Towson of Express Printing does.  

If you have any questions in regards to the biased, slandering report of any money being owed to John Towson of Express Printing or why he would attempt to slander someone in such a way, you can contact John Towson of Express Printing directly at 813-969-2001 or 813-493-8888.  

Their physical address is 2355 Raden Drive, Land O' Lakes, Fl. 34639.  

Hard to beleive I waited 5 years to defend myself.  I always figured those people that truly know me know better than to believe these words in this slandering report.  It was those that do not truly know me that worried me so critically.  Now I do not have to wonder or worry that someone "googling" me will come across this slandering attempt of my character.  At least now my words, my defense is affixed to it.  - Kelly Wilson
