Derick Downs is a Liar (PROOF)

AUTHOR: thetruth - ()

You can read this website for proof that Derick Downs is a liar and it addresses some of the lies Derick posted above:

Derick Downs' lies are easy to disprove.

He keeps digging a bigger hole for himself. This ripoffreport backfired on Derick Downs. 

Derick Downs admits he was disappoitned that he was FIRED and he acknowledges he was paid. This appears to be the motive of this disparaging post.

Fact: Derick Downs never mentioned he had an issue with any of our businesses before he was fired. In fact, we were the ones who told Derick to comply with rules. We gave him a checklist of items to ensure we are compliant. We take compliance seriously. 

Derick James Downs appears to be a hater. If he keeps this up, he won't go far in life. 

We have many happy team members who are honest, and hard working. Derick Downs was our WORST HIRING DECISION.

P.S. I have 10+ references of people who can vouch for my trustworthiness and have team members I've worked with for YEARS. 

P.P.S. His youtube Bidslist testomial is a paid fiverr endorsement, which is exposed at

P.P.P.S. We'll keep posting more documents and proof regarding Derick Downs including Skype conversations if needed.

Watch out for liar, scam, & cheat - Leon Apel with Latter Rain LLC, Tech Solution Supply, Travel Business Professionals, and VSC Partners LLC

AUTHOR: Victim of Leon Apel Scam - ()

The following are direct responses to Leon Apel'a bold statements:

1)-Read again dude- the misspelled portion of this was provided by somebody else. Probably another person you screwed over, or a rip of report publisher.

2) I was hired as a w-2 contractor. Attached is my pay stub from, and W2 form proving I was a w2 employees: (representative for paychex is Jessica, and she can verify how shady you business practices are) Please explain how I was hired as a W-2 contractor, but then once you could afford to pay me, you act like you hired me as a 1099 contractor..

3) You made me sign a bunch of forms if I wanted to get paid. The W2 I signed doesn't matter to you, but this NDA hiding your sneaky, scams & sales techniques does.... I should have never trusted you after you explained some issues with your prior employees. I should have realized your the problem not them.

4) I outsourced more sites for you in a month then anybody you've ever met. Don't act like I didn't do more work then you expected (you even said this) You didn't pay me, Karl didn't pay me, and both of you havent paid the freelancers that I hired to do your work. I had to come out of pocket for a job which is BS as well.

5) Being chased?? IRS clearly knows where I'm at. They aren't stupid. Maybe in Canada they are since I know you don't pay taxes.. I'm not going to call and research because it doesn't matter. Not sure why you did... Typically CEOs that are busy don't have the time to deal with reasearchinh ex employees or pirate taxes...

6) You have 1 employee and outsource the rest to call centers off shore because your to scared of dealing with the pain you cause to ever person who thinks there getting a FREE trial of your products. I have no idea why any affiliate would run any offers for any company you represent. If they do they should expect to get paid only when you have funds, read all legal documents carefully, and ask others about Leon Apel before marketing any offer for them.

7) I assure you I wouldn't take the time to write a report if you would have held up to your end of the job offer. You think you can use internet bullying skills to scare people, but sorry bro... Your a little dude from Canada. Why don't you go back to your country EH? You have no friends or loyal customers. Your run pump and dump operations.

8) You changed access and I couldn't finish any work if I tried, nor could any of my freelancers. Your the reason programmers don't like working with people. You never paid anybody on my team., made us work 12+hour days and only would pay for 8 hours because you "supposedly" follow the state, FTC, SEC, and IRS rules... I'm pretty sure the way you operate in different countries allows you to some how bypass taxes... But glad your looking into mine.

The above is the truth about this matter. I've already filed complaints with the labor board, RIP off Report, and soon several others. I would appreciate everybody share this message with at least 1 person to save them from this Canadian fraudster.

Latter Rain LLC, Tech Solution Supply, Travel Business Professionals, and VSC Partners LLC, located
at 6440 Sky Pointe Dr 140-101, Las Vegas, NV 89131 are all businesses assiociated with Leon Apel.

It's ironic that it took my first rip off report to hear back from you. Be a man and own up to the funds you owe others.
