#1 General Comment


AUTHOR: Jennifer - (United States of America)

In 2002, John Common's estranged third wife was dying of breast cancer. She pinned her hopes for survival on a radical stem-cell-transplant surgery.
Weeks before the planned operation, Janice Common discovered that her husband had allowed her health-insurance policy to lapse.
The move violated a court order to pay for Janice's spousal maintenance and health care, and Seattle lawyer Jerry Kimball said he asked the court to jail Common for contempt.

"He is a one-man wrecking crew," said Kimball, who represented Janice in her divorce case.
Court records show Common blamed his inability to pay on a separate lawsuit filed against him in federal court.
He also told the court that his wife had jewelry and furnishings that could be sold.
Common's background, pieced together from computer record searches, court documents and more than a dozen interviews, shows that he is 54, has been married four times and has eight children, including an adopted daughter.
Records show that he owes about $52,000 in past-due child-support payments in the state of Washington, where officials have tried unsuccessfully to garnishee his wages since 2007. They also sought to suspend his driver's license in 2009 for failure to pay.
He owes millions of dollars in unpaid court judgments, and thousands of dollars in state and federal tax liens have been filed, with no record of payment, records show.
Birth records and interviews show that Common was born in Colorado in 1957 to Iranian parents. Common's birth name was Anush Sharifi Hosseini. In the 1960s, his parents divorced and he moved with his mother to Europe.
Common took the name of his adopted British father, John Common Sr., who moved the family to England.
Common refused to discuss his past. But relatives say that trouble in England caused Common to move in the late 1960s to to Tehran, Iran, where he prospered in the burgeoning radio and television industry.
"He was a wonderful young man," said his first wife, Shirin Nassehi, who met and married Common in Iran. "He was well-known on IRT TV (Iran Radio Television)."
Nassehi, who now works as a real-estate agent in Dallas, said her husband was a hero during the Islamic Revolution in the ate 1970s, putting himself in danger by helping Americans to escape the country.
Nassehi said she and her husband fled the country and moved to Seattle. She said Common immediately got work as a disc jockey at a small radio station there.
Common soon set his sights on advertising, Nassehi said. It wasn't long before he was putting together his own deals and talking about running his own business.
Common's breakthrough involved setting up call-center operations employing hundreds to market car warranties to customers throughout the country.
His marriage to Nassehi ended in divorce in the early 1980s.
In 1985, shortly after marrying his second wife, Common was convicted on burglary charges stemming from a domestic issue and sentenced to probation and community service.
The conviction marked the beginning of a string of offenses, including failure to appear in court, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and contempt-of-court charges.
In 2002, a Seattle family-court commissioner, Kimberly Prochnau, described how Common failed to pay for his dying third wife's health-insurance premiums, while affording himself luxurious meals, trips and personal purchases. Prochnau jailed him for contempt.
Court records show Common blamed his inability to pay his spousal support on the federal-court lawsuit. The suit, brought by American International Group, claimed that Common used money from a $30 million line of credit, which was supposed to back car warranties sold through his company, on lavish personal expenses.
Common told Prochnau that his company, Warranty USA, had been placed in receivership and that the federal judge in the case prohibited him from spending company money.
Prochnau cited purchases that contradicted both federal and state court orders. Those purchases included a new home in Nevada and $87,000 on furniture.
The judge in the federal case also held Common in contempt for continuing to spend company money on personal purchases after being ordered to stop.
Common refused to discuss the cases with The Republic.
Court records and an interview with his fourth ex-wife, Elizabeth Muelhaupt, indicate Common was attempting to set up a new life for himself in Nevada even as he drove the Seattle company into bankruptcy.
Muelhaupt said she was already living in Nevada in 2002 and remembers the day John called and told her that he had been jailed in the family-court case.
"He told me to start selling furniture to raise money. That night I called an auction company, and by that weekend they had sold everything in our house," she said.
After a brief stay, Common was released from jail after the furniture was sold, Muelhaupt said.
The money from the sale was supposed to help pay for Janice's breast-cancer treatment, court records show.
But according to Kimball, ultimately it was AIG that stepped in to help Janice get treatment. Even as the company sued her husband, it released its claim on funds to help raise the $60,000 needed to pay for Janice's stem-cell operation.
Janice died in 2002, facing multiple debts and lawsuits related to her husband's business, Kimball said. Her death came just days before the divorce was to be finalized by the court.

Pity John Common??!!

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

Pity his parents, but not the "Common" John Common..We need to know his name, so we can send him to prison for scamming and stealing millions from innocent people, Sean and Sonya should go to prison too..accomplices..aiding and abetting..Grand Theft by Fraud.  How much time would such a crime carry?  I have always hated (strong word, I know) a liar and a thief..common.  Do you remember what bank Mr Common used to pay his employees or the one he deposited all those stolen millions in..maybe have an account # for him?  I would be so grateful for that piece of information
