I had a 5 year contract with Geary Interactive, Inc., effective as of July 15, 2009, through July 14, 2014, to do their SEO though my Philippines SEC registered company, Michael Turner HarvestSEO.com, Inc..  My contract with Geary can be seen as Annex A of the criminal complaint I have filed against them in the Philippines, NPS Case No. X-06-INV-012F-02084, as posted on my blog with permalink http://www.michaelturner.us/2012/06/11/michael-alan-turner-michael-turner-harvestseo-com-inc-stickymedia-solutions-inc-complainant-vs-geary-group-inc-geary-interactive-llc-matrix-media-technolgies-and-its-officers-directors/

In my contract with Geary, #9, Conflicts of Interest; Non-hire Provision, it states:

9.2 For a period of one year (1) following the termination of agreement, The Client shall not, directly, or indirectly hire, solicit, or encourage to leave employment, any employee, consultant, or contractor of HarvestSEO Company.  The Client is also prohibited from hiring any such employee, consultant, or contractor who has left Contractors employment within one (1) year from termination of such employment or engagement. 

In my contract with employees, consultants and contractors under #3 That upon termination of my services from the Company for any cause or reason:

3(b) I shall not thereafter either directly or indirectly, either as partner or as an officer, director, shareholder, or employee or agent or servant of any corporation or partnership, for a period of 18 months after leaving the service of the company, solicit orders from any customer of Michael Turner/Harvestseo.com for such services as provided by him and his duly recognized representatives.  Several copies of these employee contracts are represented in the Affidavit Complaint mentioned above and are attached as Annex C. 

As of June 2011, as can be seen in the bottom right corner of Annex E (the last page of the Affidavit Complaint), Geary had conspired with managers that worked for me as well as 33 additional employees who worked directly under the Geary Interactive contract, to create a new company and steal the client.  

On July 27, 2011, my offices in Cagayan de Oro City and Davao City, both on Mindanao Island, in the Philippines, were robbed of computer equipment and confidential client data by the very people who conspired with Geary Interactive personnel in order to steal the client.   The employees motive was greed, to make money, and the motive of Geary was greed, to save money.  Copies of emails between my contracted employees and Geary personnel named in this criminal lawsuit are attached to the Affidavit Complaint as Annex D.  

Article 315, of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines, Entitled Swindling and other Deceits, 2 states: Swindling (Estafa). By means of any of the following false pretences or fraudulent acts executed prior to or simultaneously with the commission of the fraud:  2(a) By using fictitious name, or falsely pretending to possess power, influence, qualifications, property, credit, agency, business, or imaginary transactions; or by means of other similar deceits.
