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

Following Hurricane Ike, There was massive devastion especially many fallen trees. Shortly thereafter I discovered an Ad on craigslist for a job as a bidder with a company headed by Chase Fonteno, I interviewed with him at a Restaurant he bragged about how he built businesses and he seemed somewhat legitmate. We agreed to the amount that I would be compensated for teaming with his company. I proceded to work and set up profitable business for his company, However he never paid me a dime. It wasn't much money that he owed me, It was around 1,500 or so based off my calcualtions. It's just the lack of his personal Integrity that bothers me. I really did need the funds also. I would proceed with extreme caution if you intend on doing business with him or any of his entities.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

FACT: Fonteno/HHP prove in court all reports false, win $7+ mil against former emp. Davis who posted all reports after getting caught embezzling from Fonteno and HHP

AUTHOR: MWatson - ()


FACT: The prior report is fake. The Report was filed by Michael R.Davis a former employee that was caught embezzling from the company.

I am a former employee of the company and can testify to these facts. But I don't need to - there is a court case for the embezzlement 'and' one for the slander, libel, dispargment and other things Michael Davis did to the company and to Mr Fonteno, including writing numberous false reports on the rip-off report, filing false new stories, giving false information to Channel 11 and the Dallas District Attorney to cause a live news broadcast - related property of which Mr Fonteno and the company have no ownership or interest in.

All of this was disclosed at court.Mr Fonteno and the company won almost $8 million in damages against Michael Davis because of false news releases, websites and postings (likethis website, pretending to beformer employees, clients, etc.) (you can find out 'real facts' yourself by searching for 'michael r davis maelstrom' and you will find links directly to the Dallas County Courts), or go to this link:


Court Case Numbers: DC-09-09666 for the slander, libel... and DC-09-09868 on the bankfraud. He was found guilty of accessig bank accounts online without authorization, violations of the Texas Wiretap Act related to such bank access and other criminal actions. If you note - all the reports filedon the ripoff report were written during a very short time period - the same period of which Michael Davis was on hisattacks. The company evidently did not realize they had hired a guy to work in accounting that was just weeks out of Federal Prison for loan fraud.

You can also go to the Dallas County website at and search for cases with Michael R Davis between 01/01/2008 and 10/10/2010 and you will find both cases, or use the case numbers listed above- so you are getting the information directly from the horses mouth - not just someones website.

The ripoff report is a good site to help people point out issues to protect consumers - but in this case, Michael R Davis used it to try to damage a company and his boss Mr Chase Fonteno by making false statements - and in the case of this website - are never 'ever' removed. (even a judge cannot remove posted information from this website due to the 'internet decency act')

You can contect me if you wish. The attorney that handleded the case for Mr Fonteno and the companies was Kristine Skocpol-Saleh. Good attorney in Dallas.

And certainly - they are expecting more postings by Mr Davis 'as other people again', now that all his postings are being responded to by me. I volunteered to post the facts. All the prior postings on hereare just words without any facts - till now. Check out the facts by doing research in the courts.  You can find copies of the court petitions and court orders on hilton head's website by the links above, but you should do your own research.  People possting things on this site and not backing them up or giving you the ability to actually contact them - usually is because the information is not true.  My name is Mark Watson and I am a former employee of Hilton Head Properties and Chase Fonteno.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Fonteno's staff walks out on him

AUTHOR: Angel - (U.S.A.)

His whole staff walked out on him in December because he couldn't pay employees or his rent. He was locked out of his offices for like 2 weeks. his staff completely gave up on his lies and scams to ripoff decent people. check with the twc he has a long history of not paying employees as well as creditors. they need to send douglas aka chase fonteno back to prison where he belongs. he even steals his electricity at his house. i dont know why he hasn't been arrested yet for driving the stolen hummer around. he wants to act like he has money and he has nothing. i noticed where one of his companies he recently had to file bankruptcy i am sure it's another con and scam by this criminal
