I was approached by a fellow Huy Dhin, at the time working for North American Security, Los Angeles, CA.

He put me on a conference call #(305) 848-8888 and the code is 7882791133; after which a male by the name of Nicholas Griffith promised that after we sent him the sum of $500 to train at an academy in the Los Angeles CA area,  via a GREEN DOT CARD, purchased at a RITE AID pharmacy, he would send me a package for the school and employment.  

After calling in the number on the Green Dot Card Money Pack and giving the money, I never received the pack; his excuse was computer problems.  

This happened on 10/3/12; never heard from him.  Huy Dhin from Orange County told me that he would investigate the matter, as he was the Sargeant for the Co.  Never happened.

Deny all you want. You, your company are all fraud. Like i said your all talk and want to act tough online and on the phone. You want to file a law suit go ahead bring it on. Shows how much of a scam and fraud your "company" is that you would allow someone you never met to act on behalf of your "company". Like i said before this is just the same person marvin aka nicholas griffith aka richard vella. File a law suit please. Your just a punk nothing more. And until i get every penny back iam going to make sure this gets out all over the web on numerous sites about your fraud company. So go ahead and make more excuses on that you had nothing to do with any of this that your not at fault blah blah blah cue the violins. What you suffer from is called split personality and you belong in a mental ward, and your little asian boyfriend deserves to be in jail.

False/Unfounded Allegations against Vella Enterprises

AUTHOR: Vella Enterprises Int''l. - (United States of America)

Mr Elkamah

I am Richard Vella of Vella Enterprises International, I have been in Saigon,Vietnam since Sept. 12th this year. How is/would it be possible for me to have received any kind of funding in any fashion from you? If you'd like, when I am stateside on Nov 1st of this year we can meet and I can show you my airline tickets, both to and from Vietnam. I will also show Carlos if he wants to see them, as you both are peers;yes?
Secondly; In late August/early Sept Mr. Griffith (no, I am not him) saw my posting on a law enforcement web site and called me by cell from out of state in the early morning (did not enjoy being woken up) and asked if I'd like to partner/merge with him,I said I'd ponder the thoughts and
options. Mr. Griffith told me his intent was to relocate from out of state to California and that he would like to merge with me to which I said I have to think about it. We (me and him) have NEVER
met. Being an open minded person and just a few days prior to leaving the U.S. for Asia (where I am now) we were supposed to meet in person and discuss a merger between companies, due to some/an issue on his end we never met as planned. Believing that he was an honest and professional person I granted him Limited Authority to use my company name on License Requests, Application submittals and so forth! I never at any time or in any way, fashion or form authorized him to accept any kind of funding from any entity, source, company or individual; clear?
Agent Dinh is one of my sub-contractors in a legal division of mine, he has no fault of any kind and was not aware of Mr. Griffiths plannings or doings, period! He was/is also a victim as you and I.
Kindly undo any and all doings you have made against Agent Dinh and his family, they are victims.
Kindly retract any and all allegations/false statements you have made against both me as an individual inclusive with my company and excellent reputation of over 20 years.
Slander is also a crime as is endangering ones livelihood, defamation of character of both Mr. Dinh and myself,yes? If you can prove to me in person that you physically gave me any funding of any sort in the timeframe you mentioned I will gladly make arrangements to refund your money,clear?
I want a receipt that I personally wrote out of a receipt book that I always have in my possession.
I am in the legal profession and have countless attorneys which at my request and under my retainer will open a Civil Suit against you for defamation of character, liable & slander! Got it?
You have an issue/issues with Mr. Nicholas Griffith(as I know the name) of United States Judicial Enforcement Division take them up with him, not me or my agents;that's not a request!The number I have on him would be (818) 279 1133. I may have invaded his Privacy by giving you his direct number but I do not like what he has done to you/others and intentionally deceiving me willingly.

Big time scam artists

AUTHOR: Elkamah - (United States of America)

Nicholas griffith, marvin griffith, richard vella are all the same person. He has been doing this for years now upon further investigation. I also been a victim of this fraud but thank god it was only $250. This so called deputy cheif griffith also threatned to sue me for posting ads online about his company being fraud, i say bring it on. And for that asian guy huy dinh which his number is 714 863 7325.

He lives in the city of anaheim and his california guard card # 1672200 which has also been reported to bsis and soon his license will be revoked. Oh and mr dinh i have your home address where you and your lovely wife reside in. And as for the address that marvin or nicholas griffith gives to his big 7,000sq office in huntington beach, its a chilis restaurant. All i can say is these guys are major punks that are only tough over the phone or posting online about sueing you but when you tell them to meet you they chicken out like little girls they are. Enjoy living under a rock.

Vella Enterprises of Garden Grove CA.

AUTHOR: Carlos - (United States of America)

The report that I wrote previously about the actions of Nicholas Griffith has nothing whatever to do with Vella Enterprises nor its owner, Richard Vella.  Neither the company nor Mr. Vella have harmed me in any way shape or form.  Therefore, any spillage of the allegations made against Nicholas Griffith which may have harmed the reputation of Vella Enterprises and its Owner, are hereby retracted, and an apology is owed Mr Vella.  As far as I am concerned, the $450 dollars that I gave Nicholas Griffith via Green Dot Money Pack for Bounty Hunter training, which I never received, he can keep; I don't need it.  Let's just call it a bad experience.  Whatever wrong may have been done to me, I let go and let God.  Sorry Mr Vella.

Scam Allegation

AUTHOR: Vella Enterprises Int''l. - (United States of America)

Carlos ",

I am the owner/operator of Vella Enterprises International based in California. Prior to leaving the United States on business in South East Asia on Sept. 12th, 2012 I had a brief over-the-phone conversation with Mr. Nicholas Griffith of United States Judicial Enforcement Division(unverified) who contacted me and asked to work with me as a business partner.I saw no harm in that at the time and agreed by phone to allow him to use my business license and name on his pending application with the state,city, municipality. He stated he was out of state relocating in state. I temporarily authorized him to use my business name on any pending apps. or bonds or licenses he applied for or submitted. I never allowed him to use my company name to accept/receive any funding from any company or individual. Since my absence I have been regularly in touch with Mr Huy Dinh who is a sub contractor for me (in another division of mine). I never knew about what transpired between yourself, Mr. Dinh or Mr. Griffith. I will be back stateside on 1 Nov. 2012, in two weeks! We can do a face-to-face meet if you'd wish. Kindly remove your allegation(s) per my company from this and all other web sites in which you may have posted against my company or I will have no choice but to file a Civil suit against you with any number of attorneys I have on retainer year round. I want you to prove to me in any way possible that funding transpired from yourself to Mr. Griffith. Receipts, so forth. Should you not be able to submit the proof I require in a timely manner I see no reason to terminate my professional relationship with Mr. Griffith who is acting on my behalf in limited capacity.
