Steven Meuhler is a fake, a con man and should not be trusted. His excuses seem plausible but upon further inspection they are just excuses. He claims he can find international investors to fund your project,  for a single fee, $7500. This would cover some of the processing but his portion of the finders fees covers the rest of the processing, This is a scam. He claims he is able to list your company on the Frankfort stock exchange easier than than the US or Canadian. He has follow up emails identifying his progress along the way but this is also a scam. 
His service contract claims the $7500 is refunded after 90 days if he does not produce the required proceeds from selling securities and the subsequent IPO. He stops all communication just days before your 90 dead line and promises that he is having the funds registered with a GAAP accountant. Here is his last email to me......

(START) We are on the EU Road Show presenting to investors until the 29th of
February. The Company currently has just over $750K USD in investment
commitments. The process we are beginning this week is getting the company
listed on the German Frankfurt Exchange. We are this week going to get those
commitments "liquid" (get the exchanged for cash), put in our investment
holding account, verified by a US GAAP Accountant and apply for listing on
the German Frankfurt Exchange. As soon as the accounting statement is
completed and submitted to the Frankfurt Exchange, it can be released to the
Company, and capital raising will be much faster. This $750K USD was placed
with investors at a 15% discount over the asking price (generally done for
investors in the Pre-IPO place, they are first in and at most risk, so they
get the discount), we will make up for that discount when traded on market
and more capitalized. (END) 

This is all a ruse. Do not engage this mans services. You may contact me via email at

Steve Muehler is At it again with New Alternative Securities Market

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

Alternative Securities Market is his latest scam. Do not engage this guys services or any of his other con-men that he has working for him. It all looks good from the outside but he his a criminal. He is also on FACE BOOK, shows pictures of his new wife and kids. His exwife's best friend contacted me a few years back, begging me to supply Muehlers wife with information about his criminal activity as she feared for her kids well being. He will steal your money. There is no doubt about it. I have a list of other victims that are seaking restitution from this Con Artist. He is good at being a con. Do not engage his services. He has coned even the best attorneys. Stay away!

Blue Coast Steve Muehler is all Lies.

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

Muehler goes on and on and on and on about betting on my operation and and double pay back if it gets up and running. And print my address so he can pay me back blah blah blah. 

The idot has had my address since the day I got duped into his ponse scam. 

To date, none of his victims has reported to me that he has come clean and made restitution. 

They all realize he is nothing but a fraud. 

He can say he is going to relist on world stock exchanges but there is no indication that he actually has done anything. He fabricates documents and promises. All his victims report the same scam M.O.

He promises to relist on world stock exchanges but he never promises to pay back what he owes to his vicitms. He will not honor his written guarantee. So the victim is still at a loss. 

S. Muehler/Oscar and what ever names he calls himself or his companies, Blue Coast Securities, Alta Vista, Del ray securities a fraud is a fraud and there are plenty of Oscars that can fraud along with him. 

(does'nt anyone wonder why he changes his company name more than his underpants?)


Do not engage his services, this is a scam artists. DO NOT TRUST ! ! !

 Mr. Stark,

Do you have nothing to do but blog your BS on this site and that site. When Mr. Ospina (hey dumbass, he is not me, simple check on LinkedIn will show that) reached out to you to square things with us, like he is doing with everyone, you did nothing by try to extort us for over $50,000.

READ THIS CAREFUL, "YOU WILL NOT GET BACK ONE SINGLE DIME MORE THAN YOU DESERVE". Post your address here, I will personally ensure your check goes out next week, the world has my word right here. I will even post the tracking number.

I have written with you for weeks about your "never going to get off the ground airline", and you stated "My airline will be operational this fall"..... Remember that LOSER? Well, looky lookie lookeee, at Russell Starks Twitter account....

And for you to get on here saying I ruined your reputation, you loser, you have posted some much garbage about me under so many screen names I lost count over a year ago. I am glad I engaged you in the forums last month, I have gotten more compliments than anything after people read your ramblings. Anyone on planet Earth that invests with you has a better chance in getting a solid return in lotto tickets. You are completely insane!


No offense there buddy, ComAir is a large Company. I am quite sure that if anyone there thought your Affinity Air Service Plan held any water, they would invest in you. The Simple fact that no family and no co-workers will invest in you should show you the errors in your logic (oh, I am sure it is just the economy holding them back), but what do I know.


Anyone wanting to get a glimpse of the truth into Mr. Stark, follow him on Twitter @russellstark, it is comedy gold. The only real tweet was:


@entrep_thinking Pictured on my web is a CRJ700, it was sold to a Columbian airline last month. It was my first choice. Pristine aircraft.


Get used to these Tweets Stark, a photo is the closest I am sure you will get to owning a Jet Aircraft.

Looks Professional but DO NOT BE FOOLED!

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

Here is the entire email from Stevie's boyfriend, OSCAR ! Keep in mind this is a Blue Coast Press Release not an independent agency publishing. This is Mrs. OSCAR Muehler's press release and standard M.O. to make his company look legit and professional. DO NOT ENGAGE! If I can save just one or two of you from losing your money with this organization or any organization that Stevie is connected to, I will have done my job. If it says free, its too good to be true and you should run the other way. 

Dear Alleged Scammed Client:

My name is Oscar Ospina, Senior Vice President of Blue Coast Securities Corporation. I recently accepted this position and as part of my tasks here is to reach out to each of you who have written negative information about this company on various websites and begin the task of making things right between you and Blue Coast Securities Corporation / Mr. Steven J. Muehler.

I have taken the time to review the securities offering prepared by Mr. Muehler for your Company and portions of the agreement you had with the Company. I also did some checks with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s website and other internet sites to see if you and your Company have obtained any of the capitalization you were seeking.

Upon my preliminary review of all this information, I wanted to take the time to reach out to you to possibly find some common ground to make things right for all parties involved.

What we are offering you:

1. A Complete Registration of a Regulation A Securities Offering with the United States Securities & Exchange Commission. A Regulation A Securities Offering is a much more sophisticated investment offering than the traditional Regulation D. The Regulation A is a qualified securities offering with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, and is for the issuance of a single class of stock up to $5M USD. The share issued are free of the restrictive legend associated with a Regulation D Securities Offering. Another upside of the Regulation A, is the freedom to market and advertise the Securities to the general public through media where it is common for the advertisement of financial products. To date, Blue Coast Securities Corporation is the only “Crowd Funding Site” exclusively working in the Regulation A and Intra-State Exempt Securities Market.

2. There are costs associated with the Federal Filing, State Filings and the marketing and advertising of the Securities. Because of your bad experience with Mr. Muehler, I am offering to you that we will pick up all costs associated with the Filing of the Regulation A with the SEC and the State filing fees (generally California, New York and Florida). We will also include the Company on the Blue Coast Securities Corporation Crowd Funding site at, and handle all aspects of investor traffic to the site.

According to the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, your Company to date remains unfunded. If you were to go to an attorney or dealer broker today seeking a Regulation A Securities Offering, the upfront costs associated are $35K to $100,000 plus depending on the complexity of your business. What I am offering here greatly exceeds what you have paid for, and lets face it, what you are doing now in regards to raising capital is obviously no efficient, and you should consider this a life line. I will honor the terms of your original agreement as far as capital and equity splits, and will work with you daily from the drafting of the Reg A, to the Filing with the SEC and through the State filings and eventual capitalization.

This is what I am offering to you, should you feel you have better options, I wish you and your Company all of the best in all of your future endeavors. My personal direct dial in the West Palm Beach Office is 1 (561) 671-9383.

Below is a press release for the site launch.....

Vice President/Valuation Specialist/Investment Banker

Blue Coast Securities Corporation
Corporate: U.S. Bank Tower,

Blue Coast Securities Corporation launches the First Funding Website exclusively for Companies Offering Regulation A and Intra-State Exempt Securities.

Mr. Steven J. Muehler, Chief Executive Officer, announced today that the Company is launching a “Crowd Funding Like Site” for Companies offering Regulation A Securities and Intra-State Exempt Securities.

Mr. Steven J. Muehler, CEO and founder of Blue Coast Securities Corporation, today unveiled the Company’s new “Crowd Funding Like” website for Companies seeking to raise capital through “Regulation A” and “Intra-State Exempt Securities Offering”.

Mr. Steven J. Muehler, Chief Executive Officer for Blue Coast Securities Corporation stated this morning, “Unlike the current oversaturated crowd funding websites focused on the offering of the heavily restricted Regulation D Securities, our Crowd Funding site is focused on the issuance of Regulation A Securities and Intra-State Exempt Securities such as the California 1001 Intra-State Exempt Securities Offering. Regulation A Securities are un-restricted securities and free of the restrictive legend associated with the Regulation D Securities.”

“Blue Coast Securities Corporation also charges absolutely no upfront cash fees, in fact, we charge our companies on NO cash fees what-so-ever. We prepare the full Regulation A Securities Offering in-house, from start to finish. When the Regulation A Registration Statement is complete, the Company is responsible for mailing it to the Securities & Exchange Commission and submitting the fee associated with the registration. Upon completion of the registration process with the SEC, we will work with the Company to get the Offering Registered in the States that the Offering will require. For select companies, we may choose to pick-up the registration fee’s, let’s see any other site out there offer such as service.”

According to the details released with the press release, Blue Coast Securities Corporation states that under the current “test-the-waters” rules associated with both the California Intra-State Exemption and the Federal Regulation A, Blue Coast Securities Corporation states it can draft and begin to allow investors to review the Companies Securities Offering within two weeks time. Though the Company will not be able to accept cash investments until the Federal Registration and State Registrations are complete, the Company will be allowed to accept Investment Commitments until a time when the Company can accept cash investments.

Muehler aka Oscar Ospina Blue Coast Securities

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

DO NOT ENGAGE Muehler Stevie or his alter EGO Oscar Ospina or anyone at Blue Coast Securities. Where does Muehler come up with these names? Jesus! 

I get an email from Blue Coast, alter Ego of Alta Vista and Delray Securities, Stevie's defunked scam operations. Saying they will relist my original agreement on the US stock exchange at no cost to me! 

OH MY GAIA! This guy has stooped to an all new low! I guess I was born on a turnip truck this morning! 

Stevei Ospina aka Oscar Muehler is one in the same. 

This guy says he is trying to repair the damage Muehler has done but falls short of repayment stipulated in the original agreement. Hell, it would have been cheaper to just pay back the $7125. Instead he thinks he can try and ruin my reputation with BS email threats and fake offers to double my money back if I take on his bet. Good Christ on a Cross Muehler, you need to be in jail for what you have done to all of your victims. 

This Blue Coast guy, Oscar, says he can relist and hopefully someone will finance my company. When asked if that fails will you honor the original agreement and refund my money. He said no. And we will figure out another plan. d**n Stevie you're trying your hardest to recover but you did it to yourself. s

I want you to pay me $12000.00 for the lawsuit and $8000 for trying to damage my reputation. 

So pay up or lube up, cuz you are going to prison. 

Do not engage Blue Coast for any services, it is a Stevie Muehler Scam all over again. Beware of 

anyone saying they are from Blue Coast Securities.

Blue Coast Securities and Wealth Management

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

Our Company was contacted by a person named Wyatt Miller, from Blue Coast Wealth management, offering to invest 5 million iin exchange for 50 percent of our company, and we would need to convert to a public corporation in order for them to invest.  We paid a FEE of 3750.00 in wire transfer to Blue Coast for them to handle the Edgars SEC filings and conversion.  Wyatt Miller sent a convincing documennt with how they would invest once the paper work was finalized and submitted to the SEC. 

When I asked for a copy of the paperwork that was sent to the SEC and the State, I got no reply and became suspicious.  I have since found wyatt millers cell phone number disconnected, as well as noone answering the commpanys main number in California.  Small Company Owners BEWARE!!!!! This seems to be a scam, and I have filed the complaints with both Texas annd California Attorney Generals offices.

1. This is a Steve Mueller scam as well. Ponzi Scheme. Alta Vista Securities, Delray Securities, Blue Coast Securities, Blue Coast Wealth Management.

2. His wife Claudia is in on the scams and schemes.

3. Mueller lives on Grand Verde Way in Boca Raton FL 33428

4. His cell is now deactivated but ended in 2629. Walmart has tons of cheap phones.

5. Blue Coast Bank in the FL Keys is not a part of this scheme but Blue Coast Securities uses it to convince unsuspecting victims that it is legitimate.

6. He and his scammers are now going after the Elderly and their 401K program funds.

7. Do not engage anyone from these organizations. They say they have offices in Boca, Delray Beach, NYC, Los Angeles.

8. If you are approached by anyone of these organizations or personnel, take as much contact info as you can and contact the FBI. If you are a victim, collect all of your documentation and contact the FBI as well. Then contact me and I will add my info and I will contact all the other victims I have on file and they will add their info.

Oh Hum Stark

AUTHOR: BlueCoast - ()

1. In January of 2013, Blue Coast Securities Corp introduced a "No Cost IPO" Product. Attached is one of the hundred press releases published on the subject:

And as we are one of the very, very few firms working with Regulation A Securities (you two may need to do some Googling on the subject), we are in direct contact with the SEC Office in Washington, D.C. on almost a daily basis. So you are right, the SEC is fully aware of our operations, as they qualify our securities offerings.

Hey Stark, found this article from Cincinatti where you claim operates of your Airline was to start in July of 2013. Your website claims an Spring of 2013 start, your interview says July 2013 start and you say on here in the Fall of 2013. You seem confused.... Can we just agree it will not be happening? Oh hum, to see the excuses this fall......

Said the "Former ComAir Pilot"...... $20M, you must be getting close to that if you start in July or the Fall. 

Prove me Wrong!

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

If I can protect one individual from being ripped off by this creep, it has been worth it. Don't fall pray to Mueuller and his Internet scam, contact me at traveltable at gmail com if you are a victim or possibly seeking his corrupt services. This a*s of 9, Mehuler, Muhller, Mueller or how ever He mis represents his names and business is absolutley not trustworthy.

Other victims have told he they have spent thousands in attorney fees making sure His paper contracts are legit and yet he manages to screw them out of their money.

He prays on individuals that appear desperate to get their funding for projects. Contact me if you need a legitimate and reasonable cost resource for raising capital. I have several good resources contacts here in the Cincinnati area. Please do not engage Muellers illegal service. The SEC, FBI, State of CA,FL,NY are all aware of his ponse schemes and seeking his where abouts.

He is crafty. His Victims, like many, are fooled and become embarrassed for being taken advantage of by his scam. If you are a victim, contact your local police and file a report.

About Steve Muehler/Mueller and coning peope.

AUTHOR: unbelievable - ()

All who plan to give Steve Muehler/Steve Mueller funds to fund your small business/start up he is full of sh. Steve Muehler not only takes your money and claims he will fund your company on a road show in Germany and other European countries or have your company publicly trade in the Frankfurt exchange is baloney. I personally do not know Mr. Russell Stark and he created this post but what he says is 100% true, Steve Muehler is a con-artist and will sell you a BS story. If you have a corporate attorney he/she will have doubt and will tell you it is to good to be true but if you can risk several thousands go for it. Reason why your corporate attorney would/will say this is cause Steve Muehler is a great con man and will sell you a story of exemptions that California provides. I do not remember the exact exemption, but this exemption is true, but he is fake and will not fund you. Steve Muehler will provide you a guaranteed corporate note. However, that note is crap and will not return you $. He gives everyone a full guaranteed not but never refunds their money. I am one of many that Steve Muehler had conned in the past and had given Steve Muehler $10,000 via wire for a supposed road show and after to be publicly traded on the Frankfurt exchange. Once you give him your money you cant get a hold of him. Furthermore, if you proceed to try to get you $ back, he will try to black mail you and try to ruin your name that is why I am posting as anonymous. I spoke to several prospects that gave him $ they all were black mailed by Steve Muehler, he tries to ruin their name. I am sure if you look up Steve Muehler on you will see all who been ripped off by him, or google his name and will see how long he been scamming start-ups/small business owners. Steve made an insulting comment to Mr. Russell Stark as no 1 was able to fund him blah blah blah and that why he had not been funded, truth is I had the same problem as a start-up similar to Mr. Russell Stark but obviously different type of business. I am not going into details on here but my company had been funded $3.5 million as a start-up and will be profitable by 3rd quarter of 2013. Mr. Russell Stark has a sour taste in his mouth as well as several other business owners that had been screwed by Steve Muehler including myself and my company. I am giving a recommendation stay away, do not give this f**ker 1 cent. Steve robbed me for $10,000 today for me that is nothing however, I follow all postings here and respond to these postings because I know he is a thief and am trying to stop all start-ups and small business owners from making the mistake I had made and several other business owners made with trusting the piece of s**t name Steve Muehler.

Reminder, if you give this ahole $, and you try to get a refund he will try to not only taint your name with false comments/postings he will also taint your business name. Furthermore, if you do further research on this f Steve Muehler in Florida he had beaten a pregnant

I am sure you will thank me if you stay away from this scam. If you do not and give him your hard earned money, you will be one of many posting on here and an I told you so would leave a bad taste in your mouth.

So for all reading this post Mr. Russell Stark from my understanding is innocent and Steve Muehler is providing false accusations to taint his name. I know Steve Muehler tried to taint my name to, this is a warning stay away or you will regret it, spen your hard earned $ on more important requirments for your business, best of luck to all small businesses and start-ups.

Mind Numbing Rebuttle

AUTHOR: BlueCoast - ()

1. I do not "Move Around", I happen to have my very same residence in Los Angeles as I have had since 2009. I also have my South Florida Residence, the very same since 2012. When I was stopped by South Florida Police and issued a citation for riding a motorcycle without protective eyeware whopping week ago, I was also run through the "nationwide computer for wants and warrants", oh..... guess what..... clear. Free to go. So, as you rant and rave about me being a "wanted man", you may want to check your facts, but who cares about facts.

2. Your "collections agent" has no website and called me from a Skype Phone, I still somewhat chuckle at that today. I have had two offices in LA since 2008, each person there can sign anything for me, you send your papers right over and they will be signed for. You state a "Lawsuit", do not even bother me with BS "Demand Letters", they will be straight in the trash with no response.

3. "I am the Author of this Original Report"..... We have established you are Mr. Russell Stark of Affinity Air Services...... A company that has been looking for investors to fund your 'wanna-be airline' for over two years now without any success what-so-ever. Maybe the fact no one wants to invest in your airline is not my fault, maybe it is just a bad venture. Maybe investors are not interested in your "Field of Dreams" (if you invest in it, they will come). Don't worry Mr. Stark, you said right on here that you will be "operational the Fall of 2013". Just like when I sent your venture packing over a full year ago, we will be right back here in the Fall and guess what, not one Affinity Air Services Flight will be completed. And guess what, just like always, the excuses will flow.

4. As for "my tone" and "my venom", are you kidding me? You have been on here with your name calling, spreading lies about being a WANTED MAN (anyone can easily verify I have not warrants) and outright hate. You state I have to change my "crappy pants" and yet want to talk about my tone. Anyone with any clue can easily tell your character by reading this blog. Oh, I am sure they will want to immediately invest in a Company you are the head of. I have simply stated facts on this site and did not engage in any personal attacks.

5. As for the other companies I have wronged, go back and count how many of them are like you (non-operational and without investors today, or have had their stock price drop from $5.00 a share to $0.16 a share), when that number hits 100%, than think who is smarter. Investors come to this firm for complete transparency in accounting, and top tier investment management. This is made clear by the Companies we have reviewed and took a pass on. Not one of them is operational or successful today, NOT ONE! If one it, please point it out, I will eat my words right here on this very site. Just one!

Yes Anonymous, please call the hack collections agent working in his basement from a Skype Phone without a simple website, and has not been able to serve the very man who has only had two offices since 2007, and have them call me office direct or simply deliver the papers. I would love to hear your true idenity and point out why you to are the CEO of a non-existant company still today. Well, maybe not completely non-existant, you probably have a nice website.

And, if my tone seems harsh, sometimes the truth is a bi***. Sorry your Company is not worth investing in, not sure how this is my issue. It would be one thing if it was just me saying it, but investors around the world passed on the opportunity, I tend to go with the masses. I do wish you the best, you are probably a good pilot, just your business venture is just one that is not a good idea. If you put in half the time in improving your business plan as you do resarching my every move and blogging about me, you probably would not have financial difficulties funding your Airline.

Mueller is a Scam Artist

AUTHOR: Affinity - CEO - ()

Now mueller is using Blue Coast as his business name, it use to be Delray Investments or some sort of crap like that, before that it was Alta Vista Companies. This guy changes his business name more often than his crappy shorts. 
Geeze! Listen, do not engage this man, you will regret it. His agreement clearly states he will refund your money if he does not get the funding, mine was a 90 day guarantee, other victims its 180 days, some less, some more......its all a scam. PRC Nationwide Collection agency is handling my law suit. 
When the agency tried to collect my money from Scum Bag Mueller aka Meuhler, he told the collections officer to go F*** his own mother then hung up on the collections officer. They have yet to serve Meuhler his lawsuit papers because he keeps avoiding them by moving, changing phone numbers and addresses. He is a WANTED MAN. Do not be fooled by his claim that he has not been sued! He knows how to out run the law and lawyers. 
When you read his rebuttal, listen to his nasty tone, if he was innocent of wrong doing, he wouldn't need to reply to these accusations in a hysterical manner. There are just too many witnesses that have come forward. I have all their phone contacts. You can contact me, I am the author of this Original Report.

1. With Free Speech comes Great Responsibility, it is shameful you hide behind an ANONYMOUS Posting. If I wronged you for $10K, there is a great civil court system here in the United States, simply use it. I stand by the simple fact I have been sue one single time since 2007, I lost for $3,750 and I paid it that day. I have the liquidity to cover the $10K, if you think I owe you, simply file, I will show up and we can post the results right here, but with you name clearly spelled out right here. You got the stones to write it, have the stones to own it. I have no respect for you, and though my mere existance may sicken you, I will bet my last dollar every investor holds me in the highest regard in NOT choosing to invest in your Company. Show us the Company we took a pass on, let the World see it, and let everyone here choose who is smarter. I bet you have not the stones for any of this, Mr / Ms ANONYMOUS.

Steve Meuhler is a LIAR

AUTHOR: unbelievable - ()

Steve Meuhler your so full of sh*. You offer your prospects that you lie to a guaranteed note to all prospects that you steal $ from. The guaranteed note is a 6 month note that states if they do not fund you they will refund your $. Which is a phony false note. It has been 9 months since you requested $10k from me and had not seen a penny. Since than you had shut down your website of Delray Securities. All, there is no EU road show and he will give you phony bank statements of funds claimed he and his company owns but he probably dug in a local banks trash for a bank receipt with funds. Steve Muehuler will also provide you false # and company names of companies he claimed he funded. These companies that claimed to be funded by Steve Muehler is his associates and are scam artist and his family and friends and companies that he claims he funded does not exist and if they do exist, the CEO of these companies have no idea what your talking about. He is full of sh* and will rob you. If you want to learn the hard way like most other individuals that been scammed by this f*ker by all means give him your $, but individuals on here are warning you for a reason and you should do the smart thing and walk away from his lies or you will regret it like all entrepreneurs and small business owners that sent him $. Steve Muehler is a scammer, use your $ for other needs that is necessary for your company. Just Google "steve muehler" and you will see other complaints of business owners he scammed, He started scamming individuals/business owners since 2009.

Dear Russell Start

AUTHOR: BlueCoast - ()

Russell, CEO of the Non-operating Affinity Airlines, just sign your name to what you write, if you man enough to publish it, atleast be man enough to own it. You say the Companies working with Affinity work under a non-disclosure agreement.... SNORE! You say you "start operatins the fall of 2013 (might want to change your website, it clearly states Spring of 2013)", I will put a grand up saying that is PURE BS. No airport operates under a non-disclosure..... The FAA has no record of you.... oh, non-disclosure too I am sure. Facts are the Facts, each and everyone one of you who write about me are the same "NON OPERATIONAL", and never will be. So, here it is, here is your opportunity to prove us all wrong, be operational in the Fall and I will eat my words. Infact, I will personally go to your town in the Fall with a cashiers check for your alleged loss of $7K, if you are operational. Infact, I will show up with a cashiers check for twice the amount if Affinity Air operational by the last day of October 2013. Operational is doing business as detailed on your website, not brokering through other operating companies. What are you will to bet all we get are more excuses of why it is not happening in November of 2013. Tick Tok.... Tick Tok....

Steve Meuhler Alta Vista Companies Steven Meuhler Ripped me off $7125 processing fees to register my IPO on the Frankfort stock Exchange Internet

Meuhler is a very clever scam artist, he knows how to elude the authorities. He changes his company name and location often when he is under pressure. Do NOT TRUST THIS THIEF!

My Contact information is above.

He is a liar and a cheat. His M.O. is always the same, contacting any of his victims will repeat the same story over and over. He signed contracts to repay in full after 90 days if unsuccessful, he always finds an excuse to weasel out of his repayment. His wife contacts me thru one of her close personal friends and indicates that she believes he is also a scammer and fears for her daughters life as well as her own. Many victims have come forward and we have joined in a lawsuit against him, but you cant catch a thief on the run! As Jenny says from Gump .... Run Stevie, Run! The FBI is out looking for you.

Using the internet is the only way Meuhler conducts business, you may get one office visit out of him then he no shows or cancels any subsequent meetings with multiple excuses. Do NOT ENGAGE this individual. He says he has employees working for him but he has a very high turn over rate and no victim has the same employee names. Mueller or Meuhler or any number of ways he spells his name, can't read either or write. 
His contracts are always mispelled and contain many errors, but he blames it on his paralegals, yet no paralegal is ever available to chat with the client. Nor are there any names given. DO NOT ENGAGE this creep.

As for his current self righteous claims, no agency Affinity is dealing with will divulge any information due to Non Disclosure Agreements. Read the Home Page Bubba! Start up is In the fall of 2013,

What a creep!

A Response direct from the Q&A of Steve Muehler at

You mentioned remarks on the internet by ventures you chose not to make investments into, can you tell me more about this situation?

 "I am glad you asked. Every 'start-up' or 'early stage' company seeking an equity capital investment from one of the Funds associated with Blue Coast Securities Corporation pays a due diligence fee. Being a fund manager, we are entrusted by our investors to make sound and safe investments, and a lot of research needs to be done in analyzing an early stage or start-up company. And, unfortunately, many times the venture may look good on the surface at a first glance, but when you get into the nuts and bolts of the company and its principles, it may not be an investment we feel is safe. We charge these possible investments the fee as we do not use our investors dollars and cents to do research in a possible investment or to do the background checks on the principles of the company. If an early stage company is not comfortable with the fee, it is a free country, they can keep seeking capital elsewhere. And no, not all possible investments have to pay the due diligence fee, those companies and executives with a track history of success do not have to pay the due diligence fee, and paying the fee in no way assures a commitment to fund will ever be issued."

 "At the end of the day, our clients are those who are investors in our investment funds, and it is our investors whose opinions count the most to us. I can guarantee you that you will be hard-pressed to find ONE SINGLE INVESTOR that does not love us! Provide an investor today with above market returns with safe investments, and you will have a client for life, and that is our standard! I will take being hated by every single 'entrepreneur wanna-be' that we chose not to make an investment into as long as I have the respect of every single one of our investors! And I would also say you should contact each one of the so-called 'business professionals' that wrote what they did about me, and I will guarantee you that NOT ONE OF THEM has raised a single dollar for their venture, and if they say they have, I will bet you they cannot prove it!"

One of them wanted to start a small commuter airline in Ohio. I am quite sure the $3,750 paid to us two years ago is not the only reason the Company NEVER got off the ground. I will make you a promise right here, any one of those start-ups can contact me right here, right now, and I will personally finance each one of them in submitting a complete S1 registration Statement to the SEC with a complete set of audited financials, clearing DTC and getting listed on the OTCQB Market, then we can all see how many investors flock to those companies to invest their dollars. Maybe I am wrong, but considering NOT ONE SINGLE ONE of them today is operational, I will stand by my assumption that there is just probably...... just maybe a reason greater than the small upfront due diligence fees paid to us that they are not funded by any investors here some one to two years later.

?Example of those who wrote about me online, and where they are at today:?

Sun River Energy - Came to us in the Late Spring of 2012. At that time, the Company was trading on the OTCQB at more than $5.00 per share. On the surface, a partnership seemed in the cards. After further due diligence on our part, the investment did not seem as attractive as it did at first introduction, and we did not proceed further with the partnership. Today, about one full year later, the Company trades at $0.16 per share. Funny, that is not part of any of their online comments about me!

?Voyager Resource Holding Corporation - Came to us in the Late Spring of 2012. Same as with Sun River Energy. The partnership seemed very attractive and it felt like good chemistry amongst our two companies. During the course of getting the venture set up and doing some 'good ole fashioned' due diligence, we stalled on our side in progressing with the partnership for various reasons. The Company was founded by members of what was MacroTrend Capital, and their biography seemed impressive, on the surface as we found out. Today, one short year later, neither MacroTrend Capital or Voyager Resource Holding Corporation are operational, all websites are removed and the CEO of Voyager Resource Holding Corporation and MacroTrend Capital today sells frozen water (yes, he sells ice). Again, I do not see any updates on their posts about me on the internet that details this point! Probably another good investment NOT MADE!??

Affinity Air Services (The Very Same RUSSELL STARK FROM ABOVE) - Came to me two years ago about Going Public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. We came to an agreement and and the Company's CEO submitted his documents to us. At time of application, he stated he had the "paid in capital" amount required to be invested into a company for a listing on the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (a segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange now closed). When we got the required financial information, nothing could be further from true, the Company actually was far from meeting its requirement for listing. We did attempt to see if any of our outside sources were interested in partnering with the Company in an effort for it to obtain the proper paid in capitalization for listing. During this time, the CEO of Affinity Air chose to take to the internet to voice his frustration with the fact no one would invest money in his Company. Today, the Affinity Air Service CLAIMS to offer flights to Cincinnati, Ohio; Newark, New Jersey and Hollywood, CA. Calls to each airport reports no Affinity Air Flights, and infact each has never even heard of Affinity Air Service. A bit more investigating shows that no flight plan for "Affinity Air Services" has ever been filed with the FAA. Though, their website looks very impressive, it does not appear the Company is truly operating today, some two years later! Again, no mention of this on the websites they post their rants about me on.?"

I could go on a bit further, but I refuse to give an mention to the anonymous postings about me as most come from the same parties mentioned or disgruntle former employees that worked for us in the past. I will stand by simple facts. (1) We have had ONE single civil lawsuit since 2007. We lost that for $3,750 in a Los Angeles County Court, and we paid the judgment in full within the same day the judgment was filed. We have had no other civil lawsuits and to-date are not engaged in any civil lawsuits. 

If any of these posts held any credibility, I am sure some attorney would have been more than happy to engaged us in litigation. (2) We have not had any, and are not currently, facing with any actions by any State of Federal Regulatory Body. These are the facts, and these are facts anyone can investigate and find to be true. Again, I act in what is in the best interest of our Company and our Investors. I am 100% in Companies we chose not to proceed with an investment in. Today, NOT ONE SINGLE ONE of them is operational. Where some see a 'scammer', I am sure clients of Blue Coast Securities Corporation see a trusted partner looking out for their hard earned monies and the future of their families."

Mr. Muehler then proceeded to post a completely fabricated story on alleging that we broke into his office and assaulted him and that we were wanted by the Delray Police, which was not true.

AltaVista Companies Del Ray Securities

AUTHOR: Russell Stark - (United States of America)

Steve Muehler at both companies and various others has continue to evade the authorities. A lawsuit has been filed and several collection agencies have been employed to recoup victims hard earned money.

I continue to receive at least 1 call or email every other day or so telling me how this a*****e as ripped them off too. The latest in the last 7 days, are two gas exploration companies and 3 individuals that have each lost $5000-$10000 dollars each in agreement fees. Not to mention their own attorney costs.

Ladies and gentlemen I implore you to stop engaging this mans services. Contact me asap and I will provide the name of my recovery team agency and their attorneys contact info.

Muehler has several name spellings, several scam artist names he uses, several email accounts. Muehler has also advised my recovery team to "Go ScrewThemselves", he said he will not pay.

My agreement has all the same guaranties that your legal team has put together. He will not meet the agreement that you so dutifully put in place. DO NOT ENGAGE this charlatan, scam artist. He is a Fraud! He sounds good on phone but you will never meet him in person. He always comes up with excuses to cancel the meeting. He has insiders helping him and none of them are ever available to meet.

Do not trust any of his business associates emails. They are fake. Do not spend thousands of your companies attorney fees to create agreements and documents. He is an expert at deception. I again WARN YOU against employing Steve Muellers services. He has several so called offices but they are fakes, LA, Calif, NYC, Del Ray Beach FL.

As you can see I have used several spellings of this name. Many have contacted me and indicated that his name spelling changes. This is not his real name. It is a scam, 1000%

Steve Mueller is now trying to black mail me!

AUTHOR: Russell Stark - (United States of America)

He refuses to repay the $7125. He has violated our agreement that he will refund and repay if unable to complete our transaction successfully within 90 days. That end date was March 5, 2012. After informing him that I will take this matter to other legal agencies to recover the $7125 he sent me a black mail email. Here it is.

Steve Mueller at Alta Vista Companies: I will go further by distributing the letter we got where you took $35K from a client for a charter flight, then showed up visibly intoxicated and with what looked to be a number or prescription pills in your possession. When the client refused to proceed with the flight, you declined returning their monies to them. Now, I am not here to judge or do any fact checking to verify whether or whether not this claim is creditable or not, but if you choose post slanderous and libelous remarks about myself or this company, I will simply forward the letter to parties I am sure will be interested in reviewing it and highly encourage the party to post their experience on public message boards. Being that Affinity Air Services and Mr. Russell Stark do not have much of an internet footprint, such negative press could greatly affect a new and growing business, especially when the first four or five Google Hits for a web search for "Affinity Air Services" and/or "Mr. Russell Stark" come back to an alleged incident of a drunken pilot trying to get clients to board an aircraft he is going to be piloting. Again, whether the parties review the letter and do any fact checking before posting it online, or whether the party submitting the letter is interested in being part of a public claim such as I stated, I do not know nor am I or will I be advising them either way, "to each their own" I believe is the quote.

Yep my feelings exactly, "what a sleeze dawg Mr. Steven Mueller has turned out to be". The interesting thing is I am an airline pilot for one of the worlds largest airline companies in the states and doing any flying outside my airliner pilot job is prohibitive, not to mention the frequent scheduled and random drug testing that goes on in the airline industry for pilots. He is a con man and I would not trust him to conduct any business transaction. His communication skills are almost non existent after he snags your money. His spelling is horrific and his attention to details is absurd. Now he is stupping even lower by committing black mail. Tsk tsk tsk Mr. Mueller, shame on you.
