Attorney Brad Pistotnik coconspirator David Dorsett Wichita Kansas cyberattacks Ripoff Report, Indictment by Feds, alleged lies to FBI,  Brad “The Bull” Pistotnik Wichita Kansas, known for riding a bull in advertisements, finally gets the horns in Indictment by Feds for Ripoff Report content removal scheme. Ripoff Report celebrates another victory against illegal Ripoff Report removal schemes, more to come.

Ripoff Report celebrates another victory against the illegal, unethical, and anti-American schemes to destroy free speech for common people by threats, extortion, hacking, and perversion of justice. The United States Attorney’s Office for Kansas has indicted two people for extortion perpetrated against RipoffReport.com. 

Brad “The Bull” Pistotnik is a Personal Injury attorney in Wichita, Kansas who is said to be known for his silly commercials; often depicting him on the back of a long horned bull.

In response to the news about Pistotnik (more on that below) one Twitter user called his commercials: “quality entertainment” and opined that Pistonik reminded her of “Saul from Breaking Bad” because he has “a catchphrase and [is] shady af.”  If you aren’t sure what “af” stands for, insert the words “as f*ck.”  Ouch!  The same Twitter user even made the claim that she knew of a couple that went to him but later decided against hiring him “because Pistotnik wanted them to falsify certain elements to sue a hospital for more money.”  Do we know if these statements made by the Twitter user are true or not? No, we do not.  But there is a reason that many personal injury attorneys can have bad reputations…and it appears that Pistotnik’s reputation may not have been that great. 




Someone even posted a review about him on Ripoff Report at Report #1177867 that, among other very critical things, suggests that you’re better off hiring Pistotnik’s brother.  Of course, as we stated before, we have no idea if any of these statements about Pistotnik are true or not because we didn’t write them in the first place BUT given the recent 10 Count Indictment filed July 17, 2018 against him (Bradley A. Pistotnik) and fellow co-defendant, David Dorsett, it may make one pause for consideration and encourage more due diligence on the part of consumers.  Another Twitter user, in response to a news article about the Indictment said “Whoa.  And yet… somehow I’m not surprised as much as I think I should be.



So what happened?  Short version: A negative posting about Pistotnik went up on Ripoff Report and, according to the Indictment, Pistotnik and Dorsett, with the intent to extort…[threatened] to cause damage to a protected computer” by sending Ripoff Report email messages stating “Remove this page and we stop” and “if you don’t remove it we will begin targeting your advertisers and explain that this will stop happening to them once they pull their ads from ripoffreport.com or ripoffreport.com kills this page.”  What are the Counts being alleged by the Federal government? The Indictment lists out Fraud in connection with Computers (relating to three different victims – two websites, including RipoffReport.com, and a law firm utilized on occasion by Ripoff Report); Conspiracy to commit Fraud in connection with Computers; and False Statements.  Not that any of this was a good idea, but come on…one should know that it’s a bad idea to lie to the FBI.  Yeah, you read that right.  It is alleged that Pistotnik LIED to the FBI!  Who fricken does that?!?  Apparently, if the indictment is correct and he really said “tell me how we get rid of it” referring to the Report on Ripoff Report, Pistotnik does.

On August 1, 2018, news station KWCH12 reported that Pistotnk and Dorsett both pled NOT GUILTY to the charges outlined in the indictment.  It’s hard not to read all this and feel like Pistotnik and Dorsett are living out a modified version of the lyrics to the 2000 reggae/pop song by Shaggy called “It Wasn’t Me.” 

Trial in this matter is currently set for early this fall.  We hope that the full truth, whatever that ultimately ends up being, will be revealed and justice will be served in accordance with the same.

Perhaps there will be more to this story later…



In case you’d like to review more, below are several links to news release and reports about the Indictment against Brad “The Bull” Pistotnik and David Dorsett for their alleged illegal actions in his effort to remove Ripoff Report postings that Pistotnik didn’t like.

 

One final note:  Illegal schemes to remove posts on Ripoff Report are unfortunately common and can result in criminal prosecutions, lawsuits, and all kinds of other trouble for the people who try them.  The indictment against Pistotnik and Dorsett is only one of many questionable activities relating to content removal being investigated by Ripoff Report and/or the authorities. We are ALWAYS watching…and it’s only a matter of time before people get caught and into trouble.  Do yourself a favor…don’t be like “The Bull.” 

Coming soon: Hackers and SEO Reputation Management companies criminal activity and nefarious Lawyers across the country that file fraudulent court orders to remove Ripoff Reports that come back, ripping off their clients:

Stories about how an alleged hacker from Cypress Joshua Polloso Epifaniou AKA “Chary Malatan” AKA Giorgos Petrou who is now fighting extradition to the USA for hacking and extorting Ripoff Report while working with a Glendale California man who was served with a SEARCH AND SEIZURE WARRANT an alleged co-conspirator Pierre Zarokian and similar stories about how certain SEO / reputation management entities and their complicit attorneys are being investigated for bogus court orders in different states.  Those stories and more coming soon.
