Robert Kim, Sparkah LLC, www.sparkah.com, and all his other various aliases and fake online twitter accounts (@journik), blogs, forums, and followers/subscribers are used purely for the generation of leads for his SCAMS. Kim's scamming history has been traced back to nearly 10 years when he started scamming people with mobile telecom equipment and services.
Today, Robert Kim is heavily involved in internet-based scams with leads generated from YouTube, Twitter, Google+, Facebook, online forums, blogs, and other social media venues. Kim's scams cover a large range of services that include, but are not limited to, search engine optimization (SEO), website development (building, design, hosting, etc.), marketing, startups, events, meditation, computer services, printing, etc. [continued below]....
In March, 2012, I was introduced to Robert Kim through a friend (acquaintance to Robert Kim) whom I had asked for any references for website development. I distinctly remember that my friend had mentioned to me that he couldn't vouch for Kim because he himself had never used him or known anyone who had used him. I did not follow my gut instinct to be wary of the introduction and ended up contacting Kim shortly thereafter.
In the introduction phase of my relationship with Kim, he was very kind, personable, and seemed knowledgeable on the needs and wants of my web development project. He also was quick to drop names of big companies that he claimed to have worked with (none of which were true as I later found out). In addition, he was very responsive to emails and phone and conference calls. A work contract was signed with Robert Kim and Sparkah LLC to start work in April, 2012 with an initial deposit of $7,500.00.
Robert Kim works closely with a marijuana rights attorney based in Seattle, WA named Scott Haapala. Scott Haapala gets paid from a portion of the money that Robert Kim secures from all signed contracts and deposits. Kim included Haapala in most of all our initial email conversations regarding the contract and beginning phases of the agreed web development project work to give the impression that Sparkah is a large professional company with an in-house attorney. Scott Haapala was a former member of the Sparkah LLC company just prior to when I contracted with them. Haapala is still the registered agent for the company and his home address is the same address registered for Sparkah LLC.
From April to October of 2012, Robert Kim and his company Sparkah LLC apparently did everything to make it known to me that they had never intended to deliver on their agreed portion of the work contract. Work was consistently delayed over days and often a week or longer. Emails and other forms of communication were slow and sporadic. And finally after any "completed" work was delivered it was always late and below substandard quality work.
In October, 2012, I terminated the working relationship with Robert Kim and Sparkah LLC. Although Kim had promised via emails that he would refund an amount of the initial deposit he received, it never happened and I was relegated to filing a small claims action against him and his company in Seattle, Washington District Court. In August, 2013, a small claims judgment was made against his company Sparkah LLC. Throughout the small claims process Robert Kim would send patronizing emails my way regarding the small claims action (knowing that he would be fully protected by his corporate veil). Robert Kim and Sparkah LLC still refuses to pay and continues to hide behind its zero-asset LLC.
It never crossed my mind that I should have done any extended due-diligence on Robert Kim prior to contracting with him. For this reason, I have only myself to blame for my loss of money and time on this matter. However, I have been fortunate enough to have met some good people from this ordeal that have assisted and given their own time and efforts without compensation of any kind to expose Robert Kim and his schemes.
My sole intention and wish for this report is to help protect even one other person or company who is looking to do any kind of business with Robert Kim and Sparkah LLC, or any of its aliases. IN THE LEAST, PLEASE DO YOUR DUE-DILIGENCE ON ROBERT KIM AND SPARKAH LLC BEFORE CONTRACTING WITH THEM. Any internet search of him and his company should reveal to you that he has no physical presence anywhere, no real referrals, and no real portfolio of work that can be verified. Any person or company that doesn't have these things should be avoided altogether anyways.
