Had been considering doing business with this tax lien outfit and the person who owns it, Don Fullman. I always do my diligence when investing and there seems to be a lot going on that should be considered.

A background check has revealed the following about Don Fullman of PIP West/PIP Group:


Several instances of speeding and negligent driving appear on Mr. Fullman's background check. But what's most concerning is the CONVICTION one year SENTENCE he received for a DUI. Carelessness behind the wheel is not a positive when considering who to do business with. I've seen many people in my life injured or killed by drunk drivers and because of this was quite appalled by the instances of negligence and the DUI.

LIENS on Don Fullman

Multiple records of tax liens filed AGAINST Don Fullman are seen in his background check. Some of the amounts are very small, such as one in Chatham County, GA (REPORT #BK491PG722) for $184. What a surprise to find a person with a Tax Lien Investing Company with a tax lien against him like this. You'd think a person with a Tax Lien Company would be able to pay their own property taxes and/or liens!

Some similar reports were also found:

Chatham County, GA

BK477PG335 ($194)

Cherokee County, GA

Recording Book #226, Recording Page #341 ($1099)

These reports have raised red flags, has anyone seen anything similar on Don Fullman?

Mr Hartman - Fresh of the Press

AUTHOR: Hartman Investigators - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, July 19, 2018

Mr Hartman - here is another lawsuit fresh off the press to you for FAILURE TO PAY ATTORNEY FEES, as you know this makes the 6th active case in the U.S. you have and we will discuss below. We really can’t believe that an attorney would file a RICO lawsuit in this case. However, once you read this outline, it will give you a rough idea what the poor people at PIP and others have to deal with in regards to not only Mr. Hartman, but the type of legal counsel he relies upon. As the party above tries to outline, Mr. Hartman has many issues with the Federal, State and Local courts. This group is here to track Mr Hartman and his battles across our great nation. Mr Hartman currently has 6 active cases that we have been able to find at this time. They are as follows; Lenore Albert Sheridan v. JASON HARTMAN et,al. Federal Bankruptcy Court - Central District of California SA 8:18-bk-10548 es - Attached JASON HARTMAN vs Don Fullman et, al Georgia Federal Northern Court 1:18 CV - 03130- SCJ ** Justiss v. JASON HARTMAN Orange County Superior Ct #30-2017-00945426 CU-OR-CJC Attached ** Emerald Alliance Corporation v PLATINUM PROPERTY NETWORK, JASON HARTMAN San Diego Superior Court 37-2015-000415 CL-UD-CTZ - Attached. ** PLEASE NOTE MR HARTMAN YOU HAVE BOTH THESE "JURY TRIALS” ON OCTOBER 15, 2018. YOU ARE A BUSY GUY and GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. YOU MAY WANT TO TELL YOUR ATTORNEYS ABOUT THE CONFLICTS. WOW YOU’RE A BUSY GUY!! Please see attached and you’re welcome for the help. E. JASON HARTMAN v Results Property Management Missouri 16th Circuit Court #1516-CVO1981 F. JASON HARTMAN v John Doe Missouri 16th Circuit Court # 1716- CVO9265 II. Substitutes an Attorney who was recently Suspended from the California Bar with another who was placed on probation by the California bar - See attached. Maybe this is why you get a RICO case filed? Everything and one could be viewed as questionable in these filings. Totally frivolous. III. Helpful hint to Mr Hartman - hiring is very important and hiring the wrong people/ legal counsel can cause you grief - see attached . Platinum Properties Investor Network and JASON HARTMAN v Nationwide where the court made you pay $27, 285.00 for failing to comply with court orders ( you claim in this case that your attorney did not let you know what was going on) - attached PLATINUM PROPERTIES INVESTOR NETWORK v AMCO INSURANCE - where you failed to show up and were told to pay $3000 and $100 per day fine until this is paid - starting on or about 12-18-2016. ( Thats $36,500.00 per year except leap years - then $36,600.00) Was this your attorney letting you down? Wanted to let you know in case you were not made aware of this case (being a multi-millionaire at this point comes in handy I’m sure) - also attached for your follow up. If we’re missing any unknown "active cases” please advise as we are looking to keep everyone posted on the FACTS, not FICTION created by Mr Hartman. This has been going on for too long and time to start calling a spade a spade. IN THE INTEREST OF CONSUMER PROTECTION!!

Another Fake Post by a Fake Guru

AUTHOR: Charles Sells - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, July 09, 2018

I am Charles Sells.  The sleazeball that has posted this (anonymously, I might add) is well known in our industry to be a fraud and a complete fake in pretty much all aspects of his life.  His own actions speak for themselves. 

  • Nearly $1mm in settlements and judgements against him
  • Multiple foreclosures and evictions against both he and his companies
  • Over 100 lawsuits in the last 10 years, in just two states!
  • He even has a fake news site, where he tries to post negative "stories" against people he is in legal squabbles with.  

Although unprofessional, I engaged in a verbal exchange with this individual on another platform, where he posts fake information and twists the truth in every breath he takes.  He took it upon himself (same day) to post this negative information on this site.  It is all lies and backed by ZERO documentation.  People who live in glass houses (and his has a lot of broken glass already) should not throw stones.  

We chose to remain silent for a number of years and try to not respond to this nonsense.  Clearly, this individual is such a narcissist, he gets off on writing these fake posts to try and hurt legitimate businesses.  Thankfully, 1 of those 100 folks out there spent a lot of time to put together indistupible, document and even public record of all the truth there is about Jason Hartman.  We know he will conitnue to post anonymously and under ficticious names, like his alter-ego Jake Swank.  There is nothing we can do to stop this insanity.  He has proven time and time again, he will go to great lengths to try and create truth out of his own lies.  The Veritas News Network is a great example of this.  

Unfortunately, fake posts silence the voices of those with legitimate gripes, which is what this site (and others) are designed for.  If there is ever a LEGITIMATE, concern, claim, or complaint by a past, current, or future client, PLEASE bring it to our attention and we will address it immediately.  

You can review more of all the bizzarre legal activity Jason Hartman has been involved with HERE.  I would like to thank whomever compiled all of this detailed data and public record and organizing it in one place.  Although I am certain it will cause us all additional wastes of time in defending against this nonsense, it is important the truth be told!

My guess is, the lawsuits are really starting to catch up, which is why he started what appears to be a crowdfunding website for legal issues - his OWN legal issues!  https://www.freecourt.com/about/

Charles Sells, not Don Fullman his -old?- business partner

AUTHOR: Elsie - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, November 28, 2017

I do have a correction to make to the above. In doing my research on PIP West, etc I was looking at both Charles Sells and  Don Fullman. The above are actually attributed to Charles Sells on his background report and not Don Fullman, his business partner. 

I also noticed that Charles Sells registered 6 LLCs on the same exact date in May of this year. And a few of them have very similar names to PIP West and PIP East. It certainly brings up more questions and confusion on his business practices.

  • Chimera LLC
  • PIP Group LLC
  • Platinum Property Acquisitions LLC
  • Platinum REOs & Acquisitions LLC
  • SNS of HHI LLC
  • Vision Tax Lien Services Incorporated 

It also seems as if Charles Sells and Don Fullman are no longer in business together. Does anyone know what happened?
