EDITOR’S COMMENT:  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. . [continued below]....


The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THESE TYPES OF ISSUES:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with personal commentary and/or allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking HERE NOW or learn a little more by visiting our “Donate to our Efforts” page.  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

As the result of a comprehensive investigation, it is known that (((REDACTED))) regularly posts defamatory, slanderous remarks to various "revenge" sites to seek vengeance via "cyber-bullying" people she feels have wronged her. After years of criminal behavior and malicious intent, (((REDACTED))) thinks nothing of the damage she is doing to good citizens, while cowardly hiding behind anonymous posts.

Investigators have counted at least 16 victims of (((REDACTED))) cyber-bullying efforts and the list continues to grow daily. Please contact the Alliance for Truth and Justice if you feel you are a victim. A multi-million dollar class-action lawsuit is in motion against (((REDACTED))) and all her victims are invited to participate. A full list of victims is available upon request. One of them may be you. If youve had trouble of any kind with this person, it is imperative you check it out, as she is extremely vicious. To see the full report and to keep updated on this ongoing investigation see: http://www.AllianceforTruthandJustice.org

An investigation into (((REDACTED))) harassment crimes are now in motion with the cyber-bullying divisions of local and federal authorities in two states. This includes the Maui County Police Department, Maui FBI, Maui Prosecuting Attorneys Office and similar authorities in the State of California. Many of her victims are fully cooperating in this criminal investigation launched on behalf of the innocent victims and businesses that have been cruelly targeted, slandered, libeled, harassed and defamed. The names of the victims are on file and the list of cyber-bullying victims continues to grow with each new day of the investigation. Meanwhile, Lani continues to post false allegations, single-handedly ruining the lives of decent citizens, who to the amazement of investigators, never wronged her. In many cases, it was Lani who harmed them.

(((REDACTED))) clearly understands the devastating impact of these bogus posts (she herself was the recipient of one such post over 2 years ago). She is purposely and maliciously ruining lives with zero remorse. On file are current results of the investigation, including actual documents with proof of Lani Starks vengeful participation. The evidence has been supplied to proper authorities, and will be made available to anyone who thinks they may also be a victim of Lani's vicious posts.

Using outrageous accusations,(((REDACTED))) posts are vicious attacks filled with lies that have no basis in reality. Her false allegations are so severe, they go for the jugular to ruin innocent peoples lives. In numerous cases, she posed as best selling author, Jack Canfield (A CRIMINAL OFFENSE), (who has sold over 100 million Chicken Soup for the Soul books), with unspeakable allegations such as embezzlement, fraud, and molestation, and brutal attacks of a personal nature using words like s**t, huge ugly pig, Son of Satan, in an attempt to ruin reputations and careers in one fell blow!

Some of the aliases (((REDACTED))) has used on these posts are,(((REDACTED))) and the list goes on. If you have been similarly harmed by (((REDACTED))) please contact us right away and file your report with the Maui Police Department or law enforcement in your state.

#1 REBUTTAL Individual responds



August 19, 2012  From:  Joel Edelman, Attorney at Law             Please be advised that I represent (((REDACTED)))All further communications concerning the facts and issues set forth herein shall be directed to me, not to my client, (((REDACTED))). (((REDACTED))), is being falsely accused, on-line, of being a "cyber-bully."  The truth is quite different.  Someone (against whom she has been in a dispute with from early 2010, and which later turned into a law suit which she eventually won a judgment against him in July of 2012 for nearly $20,000).  This person has a long history of felony criminal conduct and of having many money judgments against him.  Thus, there is reason to believe this person is likely the underlying source and perpetrator of the "bullying" that so many people are attributing to (((REDACTED))).             During the time prior to 2010, this fellow and his intimate friends had full access to (((REDACTED))) computers, email, and wi-fi via her wireless router.  Unfortunately, she did not have any passwords on her email, computer or wi-fi.  She was foolishly trusting (and quite nave) concerning the security and privacy of her computer system.             Just last week, she found out that anyone who was in her home (or even on any of the near by streets using a laptop) would be able to access her computer -.- as well as retrieve information and then send out emails, postings and other on-line notifications using her IP address, making it look as if it had come from (((REDACTED))).  That is, to the rest of the world, it would appear that certain on-line posting had originated with (((REDACTED))); whereas, in truth, any improper "cyber bullying" and other potentially illegal postings had originated with others.             The people about whom false and misleading on-line statements were made are certainly victims of such "cyber-bullying."  It so happens that (((REDACTED))) was also one of those victims.               In fact, none of the offending on-line postings (that APPEARED to originate from (((REDACTED))) actually originated from her or were sent by her.             She takes responsibility for naively allowing a situation through which other people could (and obviously did) knowingly, intentionally, maliciously, and improperly "hack into" her computer system and spread venom about these victims as well as (((REDACTED))). (((REDACTED))) is very concerned and deeply sorry for all such victims (including herself).  She intends to do whatever she can to correct the record.  This letter is a continuation of her attempt to correct the record; an attempt that began on August 3, 2012.             Which gets back to the person that all indicators point to:             Shortly after his initial failure to pay (((REDACTED))) $15,000 in 2010, he posted a knowingly untruthful message about her on-line.             Sometime in 2011, (((REDACTED))) became aware that this man had posted something negative about her on-line.  Once she ultimately obtained the July 2012 Judgment against this person, she contacted the sites that he had posted grossly negative (as well as other false information) about her.                From August 3, 2012 to date, in order to rectify and clarify the situation, (((REDACTED))) has emailed and/or spoken with ripoffreport.com (2X) - - repeatedly asking them to take down the postings that she did not in fact post.  She also contacted The Alliance for Truth and Justice (2X) explaining to them that she was innocent and that her computer had been hacked.  Just yesterday she also contacted reviewstalk.com, to let them know that she in fact did not post any of the reports on Barry Cutler or others.              Immediately thereafter, a large number of these false and defamatory postings began to surface- - all "attributed" to (((REDACTED))).             Finally, (((REDACTED))) has been able to "connect the dots."              It is highly likely that the person whom she has recently obtained a money judgment against, had cleverly "set a back-fire" starting in 2010.  That is, he knew that he had cheated (((REDACTED))) out of $15,000 (as well as had greatly injured her reputation in the industry); NOW he intended to "finish the job" - - by "cyber-bullying" her.             He knew that (((REDACTED))) had legitimately obtained a court judgment against him - - in fact, he had not even bothered to show up in court; nor had he bothered to continue having a lawyer represent him in that matter.  He undoubtedly knew that she would be able to get a money judgment against him.              It appears to (((REDACTED))) that this man and his "friends" likely had another plan - - to ruin (((REDACTED))) reputation, her business AND to have several other people fighting-mad at her - - because of postings about them that appeared to originate with (((REDACTED))).             What a clever and insidious plan this person had - - undoubtedly to further punish (((REDACTED))) for asserting her legitimate legal rights to recover monies owed to her.   (((REDACTED))) understands and has compassion for all those who have been subject to this "cyber-bullying."  It is truly unfortunate that people with less than honest and truthful intentions now have relatively new tools to carry out in their attempt to ruin the lives and reputations of others.             To summarize the situation - - (((REDACTED))) did NOT draft, post, email nor "cyber-bully" anyone; nor did she intend to do so.  Rather, she was "set up" to make her "appear" to be such a "cyber-bully."  Someone else's "fingerprints" are on the offending messages; not (((REDACTED))).             On the surface, it "seems like" (((REDACTED))) had posted those offensive messages.  However, someone(s) else perpetrated those heinous acts.  She played no part whatsoever in creating the content nor performing the acts that are being complained of.(((REDACTED))) intends to "get to the bottom" of who is/are behind these acts.  She intends to fully cooperate with any and all entities who are objectively searching for "who" and "how" these many offensive posts were put into the cyber-world.             In the meantime, on (((REDACTED))) behalf, I expect and demand that you immediately cease and desist from any further false statements, negative postings and actions that are based on the assumption or belief that (((REDACTED))) has caused the "cyber-bullying" being complained of.  On (((REDACTED))) behalf, a demand is made to immediately "take down" any and all web content that continues to accuse (((REDACTED))) of such wrongdoing.  Any and all emails that you have sent out which accuse (((REDACTED))) of such wrongdoing need to be immediately rectified by you.  Furthermore, this letter needs to be posted as part of any of your remaining content concerning (((REDACTED))).             One final note.  This letter has been hastily drafted and sent to all those individuals and organizations who have apparently been targeted; and/or are now targeting (((REDACTED))).  It is being sent in good faith to you with the expectation that all those recipients of this letter will be able to take at least a "neutral" position concerning whether or not (((REDACTED))) had any intention to harm the recipients and/or she took any actions to harm those affected.              To those of you who have the moral and intellectual independence/neutrality to be willing to objectively determine what has truly been going on here, let me say the following to you - - Please communicate with me as soon as possible; especially, let me know what further information you may need to receive before forming any conclusions.  Further, if you have information that will help "get to the bottom" of this matter, please feel free to share such information with me.  Thank You.             To those of you who may reject (out of hand) what is set forth in the body of this letter - - let me say the following - - your very "knee jerk" rejection of (((REDACTED))) innocence herein will be seen as a sign that you have somehow played a part in "setting up" and/or being "used" to "victimize"(((REDACTED))) as well as the other victims. Joel Edelman, Esq.Attorney for (((REDACTED)))

Practice Everyday?

AUTHOR: JC Morgan - (USA)

Makes sense right? Just sing everyday – try new songs, practice going higher. Just DIY! (do-it-yourself)

Nope. I was so lost and didn’t feel like I was improving AT ALL.

The problem was I had no idea HOW to practice. I didn’t know the types of exercises I needed to do to make a real difference.

A vocal coach didn’t really seem like a good option. I wanted to be a REAL singer – someone who did this professionally. And being from a small town (read: not New York or LA) I didn’t think any of the local song coaches could take me to that level. But make sure you choose the right coach.
