    Rob is Elias Chavando's right-hand "tech guy" who has followed him from Autotrader to Rentus.com and Reagan.com and now Progresando, getting more and more into the illegal political operations of the NRSC (data mining, data brokering, and illegal email spam) on behalf of the Republican Party and increasingly Donald Trump's marketing campaigns specifically https://hucksters.net/person/elias-chavando While they claim to be "online marketplaces" and indeed were at some point (e.g. Autotrader) it appears they are functioning as front companies now providing consulting and tech/spam services to the NRSC and other Republican political campaigns BLATANT violation of the CAN SPAM ACT on a daily basis not to mention dozens of consumer protection laws, these fuckers are the dirtiest of the "swamp creatures" that Republicans claim to despise so much, which is why they use so many different fake web domains Read More

    Christina and Darian Rafie are "technology advisors" to Progresando which appears be a front company dealing with "import/export" In reality they are professional political operatives and spam the living hell out of millions of Americans on behalf of the Republican Party and connected campaigns: https://hucksters.net/person/darian-rafie https://hucksters.net/blog/darian-rafie-exposed Despite repeated requests to stop spamming me, these fuckers keep selling and re-selling and reusing my contact information in direct violation of the CAM SPAM ACT and as always, the FTC never stops any of these fraudsters Read More

    Elias is the CEO of Progesando, and he employs Darian Rafie as his CTO. After asking Darian dozens of times to stop spamming me with MAGA Trump email spam from the Republican Party and all their grifters, I emailed Progresando and they wouldn't tell me if their company was involved with Darian's spamming services, so I must assume they are well aware of it and benefit from his spamming, too. https://hucksters.net/person/darian-rafie Update July 2022: Elias is now harassing me via email to delete this page... he had nothing to say for 2 years when I demanded his team stop spamming me, now he wants to "talk"!

    Darian is extremely clever and tricky, running various email spam campaigns for Republicans and beyond. His website emagnify.com purposefully has broken SSL certificates so that Google won't index it and most visitors will ignore it... the contact info on that website is fake and reused from other junk companies in Los Angeles. This is all done so that Darian can (barely) follow the law when it comes to CAN SPAM Act and other regulations about being honest where your emails are coming from. The truth is he is very dishonest, but he does just enough to be able to hold together a shitty legal defense if he ever gets brought to court for illegally buying and selling voter contact info. His pseudo-shell company BEP Consulting in Chicago is the legal entity he uses to actually do business. This self righteous fucker spams the hell out millions of Americans even when they unsubscribe from these "GOP" lists time and again. He is the worst of the worst of right-wing grifter-scammers pretending they are moral. Update: Darian is now selling lists to the NRSC (GOP) and helping them send millions more illegal email spam messages Read More

    *The vast majority of people listed in this database are just “normal” business people, therefore no negative connotation is insinuated nor should misdeeds be assumed based on existing in our business directory. Our underlying goal is exposing misdeeds and fraud, but to accomplish this we often must first identity “honest” business people. This is because of things like similar names, impersonation, copyright infringement, and other reasons. Thus, the vast majority of people in our database are not being accused of anything shady. For this reason, profiles are now “noindexed” by default until comments exist on any given profile, since many of them are unnotable.

    Common searches: owner, founder, ceo, boss, associate, whois, info, huckster, scammer, spammer, liar, true, reviews, experiences, reputation, before, known for, profile, deadname, real name, birth name, original name, who was, gender, beliefs, history, etc.
