Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Beware of specious folks offering unsolicited affirmation of their "ethical" ways like Mark Klein (Dad), the self-described "multi-millionaire" owner of FMI products (FMI Fireplaces- 2701 South Harbor Blvd. Santa Ana, CA 92704) who gave me a one hour tour of his "one-hundred employee" factory bragging about his "dozens" of $35,000 machines and his recent origination of a large six-figure equity line of credit.Mark Klein used tangential braggadocio to guarantee me that his son Dane Klein, an "FMI supervisor" and Dane's best friend Anthony Derenzo were "good kids," that we should indeed rent an apartment to on Mark Klein's "word" right before Mark gave us the ONLY check we ever received from his family with lease agreement copy Mark's doppelgnger was to sign as guarantor but conveniently whited out. White Out, the perfidious Mark Kleins most trusted post agreement negotiation "trick."

We had to EVICT Mark Klein's family in court for never paying one cent of rent or utilities, lying to us about being in a criminal street gang and for one of those "good kids" being charged with "street terrorism," in just one of at least four separate bloody hate crime incidents instigated by these insidious misanthropes over less than seventy five days! Incredibly enough, Mark Klein stated that we could "trust the Kleins" who clearly offer both immoral and financial support for their son and his gangbanging friends: "SC Boys" (San Clemente thugs) and "OCS" or Orange County Skinheads! Mark Klein admits that Dane Klein is "brain damaged" but by Dane's very own admission, Mark absurdly provides Dane with unregistered firearms he was "robbed" of likely by the very same hate groups with whom he gangbangs!When sheriff's deputies arrived to evict the Klein family, Mark Klein made personal appearance and kept Dane at good distance for fear of him being taken into custody. None of the Kleins or their hate mongering friends lifted one finger to clean or repair the holes in the walls and doors, nor did they pick up their trash, junk, and discarded furniture strewn about every room of the home.

In addition, the Kleins actually STOLE my refrigerator and when confronted, Mark Klein reasoned with me that the Kleins would simply lie in concert defending against my litigation! These myopic interlopers are for sale to the lowest bidder! List of Damages When Dane Klein and/or his friends including Anthony DeRenzo attacked at least four Latinos including a very cordial young man living in our neighborhood who I've known for several years, Mark Klein was asked to pay for the victim's lip to be fixed so that the boy didn't have to bare permanent facial disfigurement as evidence of Kleins' hate: Mark Klein hung up the phone on the young man. Looks like someone needs a lesson in empathy!

Ask yourself: Is there another fireplace manufacturer who doesn't underwrite violence and hate? Since the answer is obviously "yes," shop elsewhere and don't allow your money to support intolerance endorsing violence the Kleins create for recreation out of boredom with your resources.

John Caple Comvest and Mark Klein IHP Innovative Hearth Products

AUTHOR: don't hate: liberate - ()

 John Caple Comvest has spent time and money helping Mark Klein "IHP" Innovative Hearth Products ( try to suppress the following photos connecting Mark Klein Innovative Hearth Products' immediate family to those armed gang members who call themselves "Orange County Skinheads" and "San Clemente Boys." All John Caple Comvest ( and Mark Klein IHP Innovative Hearth Products (who shirked all moral responsibility) needed to do was provide a $5000 scholarship to a Latino beaten for the color of his skin and fix that victim's permanent scarring. Instead, John Caple Comvest on behalf of himself and Mark Klein Innovative Hearth Products' engineered a six figure legal battle complimented by hackneyed subterfuge from two thousand plus miles away: John Caple Comvest is bloated with ego just like the violent punks who beat our friend with brass knuckles.

If this report was written by Michael Montrief it can't be true.

AUTHOR: Montrief Victim #1000 - ()

I don't know Mark Klein, but I believe this report was written by a Huntington Beach scam artist by the name of Michael Montrief.  It contains his identification by use of his favorite words.  

People should know that since the complaint was written by Michael Montrief it is undoubtedly not true, and on the contrary Mr. Klein probably went out of his way for Mr. Montrief.  

Mr. Montrief is an individual who has made a large amount of money by scamming and ripping off unsuspecting victims over many years via gross Corvette scams as well as housing rentals.  He was finally caught and charges were filed against him somewhere between 2005 and 2007.  See news report He has filed bankruptsy, and is running other scams by  renting out foreclosing real-estate.  By collecting rent in advance the bank cannot reposess the properties until the renter's time is up.  

Mr. Montrief also hides two Toyota Prius's that are not paid for while waiting for the statute to run out and Toyota to give up looking for them.  To verify these statements please Google Michael Montrief Corvette Forum to see the rip off car complaints and  click this link to see renter complaints,  In 2008 Mr Montrief received a cease and refrain order for running real-estate scams, and later had his Real Estate license revoked.  He is presently attempting to run a new real estate business called fsrefund which he claims will net him $100,000.00 monthly.  This is how he slandered another victim in this very website, Peter Liegl,  the following link is an ebay warning not to do business with him

I am conveying this information because of my personal experience with Mr. Montrief in which he borrowed large amounts of money from me (a single mother), he never repaid one penny, then when I could not loan him anymore he began a barage of emailed threats stating, "I will teach you a lesson with a website you will never forget". and, "just Google "Peter Liegl" and then ask yourself how out of your depth you really are _____: If I'm not scared of a billionaire, who are you" etc., etc.

The emails contain threats to me and my children promising to build websites for each of us accusing us all three of illegal, illicit and immoral behavior and the threats go on.  

Because of all this I believe that Mark Klein must have done somethig nice for Mr Montrief to deserve this Ripoff Report.

If you Google Michael Montrief you will find about ten websites all making him out to be some kind of a God or something.  These are websites he created as damage control to repair his reputation in the internet.  His letter to Reputation Management oDesk contains the following sentences, "Unfortunately some evil people have decided to artificially promote links that now appear higher in search results for my name permutations than those results would otherwise return". and..., "Please tell us how quickly you can promote these positive websites listed above to outrank all negative posts".   

I hope this clears things up for anyone wishing to do business with Mark Klein.

#3 UPDATE Employee

A Florida court found these comments to be false and defamatory

AUTHOR: Counsel for FMI Products, LLC - (United States of America)

The comments on this website mirror those posted by the complainant, Michael Montrief, on other websites. On December 21, 2012, a Florida court determined that statements on these websites concerning FMI Products and Mark Klein were false and defamatory, and issued an injunction ordering that Mr. Montrief remove the defamatory statements from any website over which he has control. A copy of the injunction may be found here

While the web hosts for Mr. Montrief's websites have removed the sites from the internet, Ripoff Report has declined to do so. Accordingly, we are posting this information here so that consumers will know that the statements made concerning FMI Products and Mark Klein have no basis in fact, were
found to be false and defamatory by the Florida courts, and should be completely disregarded as such.
