More B.S. from Alexandre Dimov

AUTHOR: Kendy - (United States of America)

The post on June 10th was written by Alexandre Dimov, aka Al Grand, owner of Allegrand Enterprises. Do a search on his company on this site and you begin to get a good idea of who the real criminal is. Alex has ripped off people in the past through his salvia site and there have been reports of similar incidents with his K2 sites.

Dimov is a con man who has plagued the internet for over 10 years with his scam sites. He had one site called where he sold term papers and ripped people off. Then he had The site is no longer online, but here is part of the text I copied from it: "The Chronicles of a Scam Artist (or how to steal millions without getting caught) Learn how a scumbag steals thousands of dollars a day from innocent unsuspecting victims and more importantly how the (((REDACTED FOUL LANGUAGE))) never gets caught." That pretty much sums up Alex in a nutshell.

He has pretty much abandoned his salvia and kratom sites for the greener pastures of K2. Keep in mind that while he was actively involved with those sites, he was a business associate of Jon Sloan's, the very person he now calls one of the "Sloan crime family".

So why has he now turned against someone he was formerly in business with?
If you search this site for "K2", you will find that 7 reports have been filed since May 29th, most of them against and this one against At about the same time, news reports appeared announcing that poison control centers across the country have recorded 352 people becoming ill from K2 incense between February and May of this year. Many of these people suffered serious adverse effects and were hospitalized. A teenager from central Iowa just died a few days ago and the death is being attributed to the use of K2 incense.

Perhaps fearing he would rightly be held liable for his dangerous product making hundreds of people seriously ill, Alex decided to blame "counterfeiters" for making the "bad" K2 that was making everyone ill. Only the K2 sold by anyone possessing the magical "verified distributor" seal was safe to buy according to him. After all, he has held the K2 trademark since K2 incense has been in existence, right? Nope. According to TESS (Trademark Electronic Search System of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office), the date of filing for the K2 incense trademark was - JUNE 8, 2010!! Here he was telling everyone who visited his site for months that he was the only one authorized to sell under the K2 name and he was lying (once again) because he did not even have a trademark for it. The trademark serial number is 85057245 for anyone who wants to look it up. The owner is listed as KTW Enterprises, LTD CORPORATION OREGON PO BOX 19149 Portland OREGON 97280 which is associated with his site

This statement is currently posted on Alex's site, "DO NOT PURCHASE K2 FROM FLORIDA: IT'S COUNTERFEIT! WE ENCOURAGE FEDERAL & STATE AUTHORITIES TO SEIZE ANY & ALL PRODUCT SOLD IN FLORIDA, LABELED AS 'K2.'" The company associated with that site is Extraordinary Transformations, Inc. Guess what state it's registered in? If you guessed Florida, you were right. The corporation became active on 1/1/2010 and the officer listed is Cynthia R. Brown of 11558 Captiva Kay Drive, Riverview, Florida 33569. The filing date was 12/24/2009. The domain name was created on 12/12/2009  This is merely an attempt to misdirect attention away from himself and avoid accountability for the many people he has made ill with his dangerous product. As a bonus, if the "counterfeit" K2 were to be seized, he eliminates the competition. After all, he can't be a counterfeiter since he has owned the K2 incense trademark for a whole week now, right?

What you are seeing with this whole "verified" distributor nonsense serves a twofold purpose. One is to place the blame for K2 related illnesses on other merchants and the other is to try to put his competition out of business or at the very least, get them to stop using the K2 name. The problem is that buying from one of Alex's "verified" sites guarantees you nothing. Unless you watch the blend being made and are knowledgeable enough to know what is being done, you have no idea what you are getting. Alex's word about anything is worthless as he is a compulsive liar. What's worse is that he's responded to every complaint about his business by saying that they are all the work of a "single bitter competitor". Now he is spreading viscious lies about his competition anonymously.

Jon Sloan is not a criminal. I have dealt with him in the past and never had a problem. He was always pleasant and helpful if there was a question regarding an order. His K2 was the best out there and he has not sold any since the FDA seized his stock in February. Everyone realized it was not a justified arrest and this was proven to be true when all charges against him were dismissed shortly before his April trial date.

If it is discovered that the dead Iowa teen purchased his K2 from Alex, he can blame everyone he wants, yet it will be clear to everyone that he is the true criminal here.
And sorry Alex, but you can't have your own crime family. Your wife divorced you after only 7 months of marriage, your ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order against you last year and everyone else thinks you're a scumbag - which you are. You'll just have to go it alone.

#2 Consumer Comment the scammer from Amsterdam is back

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America) has been scamming people on the Internet for years. He has no regard to people's safety or well being. Most of the time he doesn't mail anything and when he does because it's shipped from Amsterdam, the DRUG capital of the world his packages get seized but he doesn't care.  I've ready numerous reports about this scammer, but unfortunately I read the reports after I myself got burnt by him. My order was also seized by customs but I did not receive a refund. I also have to appear in court and be fined at least $5000. I hope I don't end up in prison. I think he laces the K2 with illegal chemicals. I was told by another victim of his that he now works in conjunction with the Sloan crime family of Kansas. They actually move from State to State every year or so because they are always investigated anywhere they land.  
More people need to be aware of the Sloan crime family and the crook so that their days of ripping people off can be over. 
The Sloan crime family just barely escaped prosecution in the State of Indiana. 
A store the Sloan crime family supplies with the poison Que She just got raided today, the bank account of the store owner seized and her store shut down, she'll probably end up in prison. will be raided again soon since they are the supplier and importer of Que She. sells a product which has nothing to do with the original K2 even though he tries to convince everyone that the product is the original K2.  It's not.  
The Sloan Crime Family, headed by the patriarch Greg Sloan, and Jonathan Sloan - Clark Sloan's minion (also related to Doug Sloan), used to distribute for K2 but later decided to get greedy and start making their own crap they label as K2. The product is completely different, and full of so called "hot spots."  Meaning one time you'll feel nothing, another time you'll go into a coma.  The first case ever of someone going into coma from smoking K2 happened when the Sloan Crime family of Lawrence, Kansas started making their own product, which they label illegally as "K2."  

Anyone dealing with the Sloan crime family is risking serious legal, health and financial consequences.
