    Andrew, another dumbass from Florida who thought he was clever to setup an alternative domain!! to hide from his massive illegal spam campaigns on behalf of his failing business, Sales Wick. This idea is simply too clever, he must have learned it at the University of Miami, where most of the grifters from South Florida seem to attend. He harasses the shit out of thousands of companies from getsaleswick.net to hide from spam reports, this is why you should give him money to help you with marketing, because he's such a genius that he does what every other spammer does "CEO of SongWriteClub and Sales Wick | 2X Exits (Wildfire/Google & TVTY/Nielsen)" Linkedin profile lmao This absolute dumfuck claims to have sold 2 companies, because he happened to have a job at the companies that were later acquired. With a name like Finkelstein, he's not trying hard to avoid stereotypes Read More

    Steve is a Gen X dumbass in over his head, running a shitty blog network using various names but often trying to be anonymous. A few of his blogs are general content, but one of his main scams is "Dating Busters" where he pretends to investigate fake dating sites to "help" the public avoid being scammed... but in fact, he's the scammer, and then sends readers to his Adult Friend Finder affiliate links. He tried very very hard to hide his identity, even using various domain registrars and web hosts on his various sites, but of course we were still able to track this dumbfuck down Please report Steve to the FTC,FCC,FBI, and local attorney general if he submits fake DMCA demands to Google or web hosts trying to get your articles removed ... this is his latest tactic, trying to outrank other sites on Google, by paying Indian freelancers to submit dozens of fake copyright complaints using fake Canadian identities like "Michael Shaw" among others.

    Brian and his whiny bitch-ass wife Janice fraudulently took over a web hosting account on my platform, then demanded that I help them move their website free of charge to another hosting provider... you can't make this stuff up if you tried. When I refused, they started trash talking me on review websites... they were never my client, but think I owe them free work! https://hucksters.net/person/janine-do Read More

    This cunt secretly took over the account of one of my private web hosting clients, swapping out her credit card for his without talking to me first and in direct violation of our TOS. Later, she contacted me by email and I had no idea who she was, and she started demanded that I help her (for free) move her website to a different web host. The bitchy entitlement didn't end there, as after I refused her demands she started leaving negative reviews about me online despite NEVER BEING MY CLIENT... watch out for Janine Do and her enabler husband Brian Lejeune, another grifter couple who thinks that posting podcast videos makes them e-commerce gurus! and serial entrepreneurs! like all the rest of them. https://hucksters.net/person/brian-lejeune Edit: This is classic... Janine, the serial entrepreneur business flipping guru, lost $40,000 trying to flip a house in Florida during all-time low interest rates... you can't make this stuff up! https://hucksters.chat/topic/wannabe-gurus-janine-do-brian-lejeune-sold-their-house-at-a-loss/ Read More

    Hendrikus is now assisting the fraudsters at Newchip / Garibay Ventures by hosting copyright infringement of my blog posts on his web hosting company in Oklahoma, KVC Hosting. Anthony Garibay and his SEO spammers from India that he hired illegally duplicated posts on Hucksters.net to try and hurt our site ranking or something (apparently they don't understand how SEO works) on their spam blog codeart.biz https://hucksters.net/brand/garibay-ventures-10018 I submitted a copyright complaint to Hendrikus and his team, they responded (twice) acknowledging the request and promising the content would be taken down... and then, total silence. When I followed up a week later, they claimed my request wasn't "proper"... when I asked them what else they needed, they refused to respond. Illegal black hat web hosting, that is what you get with Hendrikus and KVC Hosting He also uses fake names like "David" or "Benjamin" to conduct business, trying to hide his identify from the company Update Aug 29, 2022: After publishing this page on Hucksters, I suddenly received back a note from KVC Hosting tech support: "The concerned customer has been issued notice on 15th August The customer had requested time to make changes in website and not responded back We have taken the site down now for no response from the concerned customer" So they changed their story around 3-4 times, but apparently finally decided to take the site offline... the owner of the codeart.biz site is using a fake name "Jack" harassing me via email now, most likely this guy: https://hucksters.net/person/vijay-kumar-bhagal ...working for Anthony Garibay / Newchip.

    Jeff Wilde, who changed his name from Jeffrey Charles Ranney after he got kicked out of the California Bar Association, is yet another douchebag spammer who tried really hard to hide his identity from the internet he illegally buys mass email lists and spams the fuck out of WordPress sites and others trying to sell "translation" services which I assume he farms out to third world freelancers (zero employees on their homepage) Report this asshole to the FTC, local attorney general, and all of his web hosting and email companies Update SEpt 2022: Jeff is now trying to get this page removed from Google results Read More

    As the head of Legal as Salesforce, Todd is directly responsible for preserving the MASSIVE illegal email spam that Salesforce generates in directly violation of the CAN SPAM ACT Despite my dozen requests for Salesforce to permanently remove me from their email system, Todd and his executive team have refused to acknowledge my requests sent to their official email addresses [email protected] and [email protected] at salesforce.com Todd works hand-in-hand with Sarah Franklin, the marketing VP at Salesforce to develop these illegal email spam campaigns: https://hucksters.net/person/sarah-franklin Despite now being a publicly traded company, Salesforce continues to be one of the most dishonest scams in the history of American corporations, all the way up to their conman CEO Read More

    Michael is a absolutely dumbass from Pennsylvania who illegally buys mass email lists and spams the fuck out of thousands of businesses using fake names like "Melisa Lawrence" and what is Mike selling? FAKE REVIEWS for Trustpilot, and other consumer business profiles, breaking a slew of laws... his main domain is AYO REVIEWS but he has dozens of others he uses too Report this fraudster to the FTC and local attorney general, maybe AG in Philly will put a stop to his fraud, apparently Mike didn't learn anything after getting out of prison for his various drug charges in his previous life Read More

    David is the ultimate Christian Larper of North America - Canadian who pretends to be American - has one successful website from 2009 and now pretends to be a serial software engineer/entrepreneur - Christian virtue signaler from Azusa Pacific who hangs out in Utah, Boise, and Vegas... ... while illegally spamming the fuck out of thousands of Americans trying to get them to post "guest posts" and "backlinks" to his shitty website like its still 2003, using fake aliases like "Rob Lora" David is such a douchebag in fact, he even created a profile on GitHub just to upload photos and links to his sites, but has zero activity on the entire GitHub website https://github.com/davidgosse Report this assholes email spam and consumer fraud to the FTC and local attorney general Read More

    Nope thats another lie. My name legally is Andrew Ryan feel free look it up in court records. Ryan “Andrew” Rafols was the name I was born with but I dropped my fathers last name years legally in a name change https://www.linkedin.com/posts/newchip_my-full-name-is-ryan-andrew-rafols-and-for-activity-6744646112491257856-0zkD?utm_source=linkedin_share&utm_medium=ios_app Read More

    “What types of comments (reviews) do you allow or disallow? We only allow comments to be posted under your real name… if we determine a comment was posted using a fake name or aliases it will be deleted.” Jesse Nickles own rules from: https://hucksters.net/faq Except** when Jesse post fake comments himself under “anonymous” to push up his own fake slander campaign and high five himself. Thats your style of writing and grammar Jesse! At least edit it to seem like its somebody else Jesse. Thats all that has to be said really about his credibility in these lie/slander campaigns and blog post. And we need an official government audit? We do public audits every year… as YOU know as its available on the SEC’s website you linked on this page. Jess takes anything and tries to twist it into lies. He’d likely cite my own birth certificate entry in a post about being an illegal alien… Read More

    Thank you for this. I was a minute away from being scammed but went on Hucksters. I was dealing with a guy named Adam Laughlin but Anthony Garibay reached out to me first. Terrible people. Read More

    Marc is the ultimate douchebag American exec -- grifting on social media and newspapers demanding censorship of "right wing" conspiracy theories while meanwhile he illegally spams the living fuck out of thousands of Americans every day with his shitty Salesforce platform that is abused by thousands of spammers (half of whom seem to be from India and Pakistan) This fucker is the perfect embodiment of postmodern America If you continually get fraud and spam emails from Salesforce like I do, report them to the FTC and local attorney general Read More

    To the owner of Hucksters.net: THANK YOU. You are 100% on target exposing Newchip and its leading con artist Ryan Rafols. It's hilarious how he changed his name to “Andrew Ryan” and even got himself a new hairdo. We think it's because most of the Austin startup and business community already know of Ryan's awful reputation. As a result, he can't raise a dime from any legit investor. The silly disguise won't fool anyone smart enough to make one phone call. Everything compiled and published here on this website is accurate as far as we former Newchip employees know. Newchip continues to mass spam for lead generation and their turnover rate among employees remains appalling. Everything about the toxic culture has stayed the same, if it hasn't gotten worse. A few extra details worth highlighting: Ryan is not an accredited investor and will never be one. Many of us former Newchip employees believe we couldn’t get the company registered as an investment broker because of Ryan’s shady past. In fact, if there is an official government audit into Newchip’s finances, the whole house of cards will collapse and Ryan will most likely go to jail. We strongly encourage the SEC, FTC, and all other government authorities to investigate and put an end Ryan's fraud to once and for all. To Ryan Rafols, "Andrew Ryan," or whatever you're name is now and you happen to read this: You are a FRAUD. Everyone who's worked and interacted with you know you a fraud. Though you'll never admit it, we think you know it too. Read More

    Hey Kristina! I just came across Etalon, and I think you'd be a great addition to an article we have coming out on USA Today where we are selecting 10 innovative companies in the Medical Device industry. We have a few questions we'd need to ask you to make sure, but this will be a full feature article that can include your name, company info, a link to your site or social media, and of course a lot of exposure. Right now, we have 4 spots left, would you like one? If you do or if you have questions, shoot me an email back here saying "Yes" with your phone number so we can talk about it:) Chase Timmerman EstablishPr.com 1100 Brickell Bay Dr Miami FL 33131 Read More

    I wrote up a thorough write-up here exposing Jesse, and instead of following "transparency" and free speech principles by posting it as he says everyone can post, it was not approved to post, and instead, Jesse decided to doxx where my little sister and parents' house is and my ex-girlfriend from high school's address. This is the kind of person he is. Read More

    I'm actually not pissed. Jesse Nickles is a nobody and I don't say that lightly, he just doesn't exist relevance wise, nor is he relevant to the progress of humanity even though this site is built on a mission to change the world one hate post at a time, the fact that he spends all of his time and hard-earned money he scams from people to attack me and Barack Obama and Hillary and Jimmy Fallon and everyone else on his Top 100 list online is just sad. He creates "brand profiles" with SEO on them so he can post all of his comments but not where the company can respond, I have to respond on my personal conman profile he made, it's his fiefdom of hate but let's find something positive in it shall we? We just don't think being called doushebags, con-men, bitches, or any of the other terms Jesse likes to throw around are professionally appropriate for someone who has never even interacted with us and just got an email from someone once and we won't go for low blows. Positive wise, it's a blessing for these companies and a reminder to every growing company that they need to invest in SEO. We've always just trusted in organic SEO, but his campaigns have shown us how important it is to manage your brand presence online so a troll with upworkers in India doesn't affect your company negatively (the loudest people are often heard the most even though they don't reflect the will of the masses). So I'm dedicating a whole part of our program curriculum to him under troll management to our startups (not even kidding this is important education and I would even bring him in to teach it if I had a muzzle big enough). To his message, as usual in his MO to lie and try to manipulate (trust me we're all for free speech but fake speech and fake reviews lose all credibility), Jesse says above "the guys at Ycombinator" to try to make it feel "like the actual leadership at Ycombinator" vs. just a random web developer and a game developer that posted years ago on HackerNews asking a question - that's just his MO and if it weren't I'd respect this site more, to be honest, now he'll probably go and edit it after this to change otherwise but leaving mine the same. You see, HackerNews is a forum owned by Ycbombinator, and the above developers were asking about us as we were new back then years ago and they said they didn't agree with the model of tuition and thought tuition is a scam - and yes many tuition programs are even, in my opinion, are not good returns on investment because they are incubators, NOT accelerators (incubators help you with the idea, accelerators help you grow your company and get funding once you HAVE traction - big difference), not scams but definitely not always the best ROI. And given we had just launched and nobody knew who we were (as is common for newer accelerators then like us compared to the likes of Tech Stars or Ycombinator), we don't fault those developers either, nor will we go online and slander and attack them because they disagree with us - the antithesis of free speech is trying to bully people for their speech or harm them for it - that is their free speech and their opinion years ago - I don't know if it's changed nor do I care, we've grown to 80+ countries and helped so many entrepreneurs it matters not what some random person on the internet thinks. And to be honest, posts like the above make up 90% of the handful of anonymous postings online by people who don't agree with the tuition model vs. actual companies we've worked with- it's not for everyone- that is a fact, and that is part of why we built a guarantee into our programs. Not every startup can get into our accelerator nor do they have the traction either to do so, but if you went to Wharton and can call your friends for $1M or work at Facebook or have already built a successful startup you also don't need an accelerator even if you have the traction - no need to apply if you have access to the capital you don't need us. There's always someone successful that got funding from their parents that will say accelerator isn't necessary as well (whether its Bezos or unicorn founders or Trump), but the 99.9% of people that don't have deep pockets, their alumni network, or parents to call, a tuition-based program built on a SaaS type model is a good investment. See, we take refundable tuition up-front in a SaaS-type model (we call it accelerator as a service) of upfront or optional monthly payments plus an option to invest in your company at the terms we all agree upon BEFORE you join. It's unique and our vision has always been to level the playing field for the 99.9% of startups that don't get into Ycombinator and other top accelerators (just to note about 1/10~ of our startups actually are in YC + Newchip and about 2/10~ are in another major accelerator) and yes over 1M startups launch yearly and 99% of those fail largely because they are locked out of the top tier networks of investors, mentors, and startup hub access. To be clear, we end up refunding about maybe 10% of companies that we bust our ass to help that just don't make it for whatever reason (usually it's a market shift change or the deal falls through at the end and we often help that founder in their next startup too). Our model is to invest in the best companies and our warrant options to invest cover us long-term loss-wise - yes that is right we don't profit from this, it's a money-losing model by design. No Mazaratis over here (there are a few actual conmen on his list btw, and MANY missing). You just cannot offer everything we offer including hundreds of thousands in software credits and mentorship and investors for a few hundred bucks per month. Next, Jesse points to an anonymous Reddit post that he is a major contributor to (as he is all of them now), to say "LOOK HERE, OTHER PEOPLE!!!. Second to people that don't agree, there is always going to be a founder here or there we kick out that isn't happy with our accelerators or a founder that went out of biz because of a poor decision on their part that is upset that we couldn't help them raise a round when they blew all their money on XYZ instead of revenue and our investors didn't want to invest (we kick out maybe 5%~ of every cohort so 25 of 250). However, having worked with thousands of startups, the handful of people that write negatively (vs. 100x more that do love us) fit one of the two buckets above, and comparatively, that's a very low percent of actual companies that we work with. I just kicked out an election software company that on the front end seemed to be top-notch and made it past admissions. However, we discovered after diligence they were deep state Trump company ie "overturn the election" crowd, not to mention that the founder was upset at a female staff member's female-splaining to him and said "back in the day they'd take her behind the shed and handle her"- they were as you imagine swiftly handled themselves and refunded even, but the narrative online is we're SCAM SCAM SCAM on the review side. This is not a common behavior but 5% of "bad" founders is actually a godsend compared to what we're told other accelerators deal with. You see, the world is full of crazies and nobody is crazier than someone who thinks they can change the world and make it better or solve a major problem. To risk it all, literally, everything you have and your family oftentimes is always on the border of crazy and stupid, so there are going to be some bad eggs. Everyone sees them, not just us. We just kick them out aggressively (and we're upfront about it from day one)- don't be an asshole, disrespectful, racist, sexist, etc (honestly too don't seem like they'd be hard rules to follow). It's even more apparent when you work internationally and the cultures are definitely at odds sometimes. I'm not going to call out specific countries but some founders from some countries have issues meeting with female investors for example, and you wouldn't think it given how progressive the world has become till you see it. Why do we still work internationally then? We're building the next generation of startup CEO's, not everyone had the privilege of growing up in America or Palo Alto for that matter and when we can coach, we coach, when we can't we kick out- its that simple, its not fun but we put in the effort even when it means tough conversations with people who don't agree. Lastly, on the timing side, Jesse has had it out for Anthony for at least a year as far as I know and we can't tell the difference between his anonymous fake post vs. any other anonymous post as they tend to copy the same formula - what I can say is that when we identify an actual individual we always manage to contact them through whatever system and resolve whatever issue they have if it's legitimate. Otherwise, if it's just someone we kicked out we could sue them or build a site to trash them, but why sue someone or try to hurt them just because? We put our effort into our companies and let the rest sort itself out the world handles assholes, they usually end up on Upwork running one-man consultant shops selling some service that they outsource to India for $10 an hour and charge $200 an hour for. That's capitalism too, not hating, that's just what happens to people who burn every bridge in their lives typically. In terms of diligence, we're all for people doing diligence into any program they join before signing on and we recommend anyone looking into applying for our programs to check out our startups and online but also be cognizant of your traction(how much revenue you've made) and professional funding requirements (ie how much you've raised from investors already) so that you don't waste time applying and being denied (the third bucket of upset reviews of people not being admitted and angry because they didn't get accepted). Check out our portfolio of startups here and on youtube and Facebook and linked: https://vimeo.com/showcase/8819086 and online or meet some of our mentors on Linkedin (we have hundreds on there). We don't deny that we work with Anthony and he has brought us into some amazing startups, how he finds startups is his prerogative, and I'm still annoyed that his email brought Jesse into my life but it has taught me a lesson. Anthony is an Angel Investor and has invested in several of our startups. I don't have an exact count nor will I post them as I don't want them to be harassed either as we've gotten to that point. We are all 100% transparent that we don't invest in every deal nor does Anthony or any of our investors, VCs, or Ambassadors guarantee investment in every deal. We work with over 1,000 startups per year and our 3,000+ investors and VC network make up the bulk of our investments, we're small fries and we co-invest and Anthony personally invests in a number but not every single one too - thats how investing works, not every fund is a billion-dollar fund but we makeup for that in a large investor community globally. And we do guarantee our programs that meet our requirements and that complete the accelerator receive a number of intros to investors based on their stage and a term sheet, or their tuition is free and we're proud to be the only company in the ENTIRE industry that offers that model; while it is new, it is not a scam nor would thousands of investors and major corporate enterprises would work with us if it was.

    There's a reason Matthew started a company called "Honest Labs" -- it's because he's a liar who, for example, writes incredibly positive reviews of the Newchip Accelerator program, which is a known scam... without disclosing that A) he makes money / gets connections from Newchip B) his fucking brother (Samuel) is the manager of Newchip's partnership program! This is highly illegal, but Matthew doesn't care because he's a douchebag grifter with zero ethics https://web.archive.org/web/20220529164730/https://bellinteractive.com/newchip-review/ Report Matthew's consumer fraud to the FTC and local attorney general Read More

    Antonio is a fraudster who illegaly buys email lists and illegally spams the fuck out of thousands of Americans using fake aliases like "Maxine Singleton" and fake websites and domains names...

    Christopher and his partner James C. Foster are some of the biggest fraudsters in the D.C. metro. By some miracle of the gods, they won a $14 million contract from the FBI for "social media intelligence" and were so bad at their job that FBI agents now refer to their company ZeroFOX as "Zero Fucks" because of their absolute incompetence. https://hucksters.net/person/21759 Besides absolutely failing at their government contract, these fuckers also run a side gig takedownreporting.com for their corporate clients, where they use overseas freelancers in countries like Ukraine and Indonesia to submit hundreds of fake "trademark" (copyright) notices to web hosting companies for web pages they want deleted from the internet They impersonate a lawyer named "James Christopher" who doesn't exist (maybe a combination of "James" and "Christopher" and submit tons of fake legal complaints. Not only should the FBI revoke their contract immediately, these assholes should be indicted for their massive fraud operation! https://hucksters.net/blog/zerofox-exposed Read More

    Tom is a grifter who illegally buys mass email lists and illegally spams the fuck out of thousands of Americans trying to sell his shitty "marketing services" like 90% of the other spam in your inbox This asshole also is being sued for stealing trade secrets from another agency in California He also looks to have paid off ceoweekly.com to write up a glowing review of himself complete with professional photography He also paid off Forbes to feature him (Forbes needs to be indicted for fraud btw) Report his spam to the FCC and his web host(s) ClickFunnels Read More

    John is one of the top execs at Salesforce who I have explicitly asked to remove me from their system and after several years, often spammers (mostly from overseas like Pakistan) keep creating new accounts on Salesforce and spamming the fuck out of me Salesforce doesn't care at all about spam, in fact it's part of their business model cuz assholes like John know the spam is why so many people join their platform, and also why Google/Gmail never seems to label their shit as "spam" because Gmail has the exact same business model (pretending to fight spam, when actually being one of the worst enables of spam) Read More

    James is absolute dumbass fraudster who thinks he's clever and high-tech by creating fake "companies" online like Takedown Reporting and then submitting hundreds of fraudulent trademark/copyright complaints to dozens of web hosting and social media platforms trying to get content removed that might paint his "clients" in a negative light, some of which are major Fortune 500 companies like ADP Report this criminal to the FTC, FBI, and local attorney generals, hopefully he gets arrested soon for impersonating a law firm and submitting tons of fraudulent DMCA complaints! May 23 update: James and his freelancers in Indonesia are now stalking me online, and have (predictably) submitted fraudulent takedown requests to Google for this page, and the accompaying expose blog post about his massive fraud campaign: https://hucksters.net/blog/zerofox-exposed Read More

    Jay is a co-founder of Otter PR, the company that so many people have contacted me about to complain about their fraud and tactics, like posting tons of fake reviews on Google and Glassdoor for their own company AND also for their clients, highly illegal. No surprise really, Jay was fired during his first year as a doctor in residency for mocking his dying patients on social media and being a huge grifter trying to make money by endorsing "health supplements" while trying to use his doctor clout Now that he failed to become a doctor, he calls himself an "alternative medicine" doctor but his actual career is spamming the shit out of Americans (literally) and paying for fraudulent PBN blog posts and endorsements for his own products and his "PR" clients... to be sure, Otter PR is not a real PR agency, they are a spam/fraud agency that partners with Indian freelancers and others Don't believe anything medical this guy says... actually, just don't believe anything he says Report Otter PR's illegal spam and consumer fraud to the FTC and local attorney general, esp. in Florida Read More

    Several weeks ago, in October 2021, I exposed Anthony Garibay and his fake "Garibay Ventures" brand for illegally spamming the shit out of thousands of companies and startups around the world with email lists he purchases. Anthony later impersonated Ryan Rafols to threaten me, and Ryan personally contacted me via email claiming that it wasn't him, that Anthony had impersonated him and that Anthony was breaking the "rules" for their affiliate marketing program... Fast forward 4 months, and Anthony is still spamming the fuck out of people on behalf of Newchip (he was never banned from their marketing program despite Ryan's comments), and he has filed several desperate takedown requests with Google to hide these pages from search results. Ryan is a liar who pays harassers like Anthony to ilegally spam massive numbers of people on behalf of Newchip Accelerator Update August 2022: After months of Ryan commenting on Hucksters and Reddit, and Anthony Garibay submitting tons of fraudulent takedown complaints to Google trying to hide their scam that we exposed, Ryan is now also submitting takedown requests to Google: https://www.lumendatabase.org/notices/28558356 Read More

    I had high hopes for the New Chip accelerator program. During the “sales” process, I spent a great deal of time addressing my concerns about being fundable even though we were a pre-revenue company at that time. As an older, experienced female executive, it was critical to our firm to find someone who would know more than I did and find people who truly “got healthcare" and more importantly, "got mental health” concerns. These were clearly referenced throughout the sales process. New Chip has not delivered on its sales promises. Worse yet, my first meeting with a Program Advisor resulted in me being told that without MRR/ARR, my company would not get funded and that I had to find my own investors by mining my LinkedIn account. This amounts to a “bait and switch” approach which is totally unacceptable in any business. I understand that New Chip defines its business as an educational company. Frankly, the curriculum has been an insult to my intelligence and the comments shared during my mastermind sessions confirmed I am not the only one feeling that way. The redundancy, poor organization, and incoherent webinars made completing the curriculum wasteful at best and beyond annoying at worst. Please remember that, regardless of how you define the company, the New Chip sales pitch focuses heavily on a 70% success rate of getting startups funded. The limited mentorship also has not lived up to the sales hype. In our case, it took three attempts to get matched with a mentor in the behavioral health space. Unfortunately, that mentor has no experience raising investor funding which resulted in no help at all. Frankly, conducting 20 min sessions to perfect a pitch deck is totally insufficient and inconsistent with the sales pitch which convinced us to engage New Chip. Further, I was then told that New Chip investors will not fund companies that have an app because they’ve been burned in the past. The result of this was being told I should only describe our company as a SaaS based solution because that’s what your investors will fund. This causes me to question whether there are serious investors or whether those investors have any understanding or knowledge in healthcare or specifically mental health apps. When I would share the advice I was getting from New Chip resources with trusted colleagues they would just shake their heads and wonder why I was paying for this. At long last, I finally had two resources affiliated with New Chip (but not employees) review my deck and I received only minor suggestions for upgrades basically saying they loved the deck. Following this, I was told by my Program Advisor that I still needed more feedback before our deck could be submitted to the IR department. This only reinforced either a gating mechanism punishing me for being outspoken about how disappointed I was in the program or incompetence on New Chip’s part. Quite frankly this has been a complete failure on New Chip's part and a complete waste of our limited funds. Add to the fact that the earliest I could hope to engage with New Chip investors is in the last month of the program the likelihood we could raise funds through New Chip despite your claimed 70% success rate is nil. I still wonder how many people get funded because they did have in their LinkedIn network investors who funded them. (I had already ruled out my LinkedIn network because none of my investor contacts had healthcare experience.) I also wish to highlight that there were constant changes in the program while all of this was going on. The constant program changes, which typically meant taking stuff away, suggests they understand the program has challenges and issues. We respect those challenges, however they are not our responsibility. All I can indicate is that New Chip has a lot of work to do to deliver on its value proposition. I might go so far as to suggest that your one size fits all model has reached the breaking point. Read More

It looks like a very legitimate business which creates product demo videos. The email clearly states that all you needed to do was ask to be removed from any further emails. There is nothing illegal about trying to generate new business by reaching out to folks as long as you state clearly how they can opt out. Is it not hard enough for small business owners to make a living these days without hostility like this?" ... the fraud just never stops with this guy. Read More

    Russell is one of the douchiest "marketing gurus" in America, because he has serious cash and is able to promote himself constantly and yet half of the shit he sells is blatantly fraudulent (or illegal email spam). For years now he's run dozens of Facebook Ads campaigns in one of the best examples of how Facebook has no problem accepting thousands of dollars from marketing scammers and hype-bros yet if you say one thing they disagree with politically they will ban you. (I have even reported one of his fraudulent campaigns to Facebook Ads, and they immediately rejected my report.) Now that Facebook users are leaving in droves Russell is stepping up his illegal email spam game, illegally buying lists of thousands of business people and trying to sell his latest bullshit courses/books/crap like Marketing Secrets. These scammers have never built a business that actually adds value to the world, the entire business model is hyping the hype of the hype for the hype that you will hype make money like them hype with fake testimonials Read More

Lou also has a fake "blogger" on Medium called Kevin Novaka where he illegally posts positive endorsements of Host Merchant Services: https://medium.com/@marketer_52319/host-merchant-services-the-most-honest-comprehensive-review-on-hms-youll-ever-read-b58caa9ba9fb Read More

    2 years ago I reported to Leslie that BBB Southern Nevada was not only refusing to delete my (retired) company's profile from their website, but was deleting positive reviews of my company from verified customers while publishing fake "negative" reviews that directly violated their own Terms of use contract. For example, a serial stalker of mine Naveed Moein, was pretending to be my customer on the BBB website. Another random guy was convinced by (or paid?) by Naveed to do the same thing from an IP address in Texas, also never my customer. Leslie initially sanctioned Rhonda Mettler for deleting my public responses to several reviews, but to this day the "fake" reviews exist on the profile and despite my LLC expiring way back in 2013, more fake reviews continue to be published about me. As someone involved in various online projects including software and Hucksters (this fraud tracking database) a lot of people have reason to lash out. Don't take my word for it... Leslie was also caught having a sexual affair while making a business deal on behalf of BBB with the owner of "Trust Card" and then sued over the corruption of the entire process: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/USCOURTS-mnd-0_09-cv-01173/pdf/USCOURTS-mnd-0_09-cv-01173-3.pdf Let this stand as definitive proof that the BBB is not some well-meaning non-profit charity... they are a business, and their sales agents called me 2 years ago trying to get me to join their membership after this all started getting published on my profile.

    Update: the reason it's so easy to get "approved" by Womply is cuz Tony and his "partner" lenders approve every freaking application for COVID loans, so be aware you may end up being charged for fraud if you deal with these people, since their due diligence is next to zero Apparently going to jail for insider trading wasn't enough for Tony.

This has been a real issue, as my family shares our email address and some of the stuff Mr. Nickles has sent is not appropriate for children... This has caused a real problem for my family, as we share an email address and several of the products being advertised in Mr. Nickles un-solicited emails are erotic." ... wow.

    Johnny is a typical shill for a few Wordpress related brands like Rank Math SEO, Litespeed, and Swift Performance who doesn't actually know anything about computer programming or code development, so he just exchanges affiliate links and quid-pro-quo "endorsements" with other like-minded scammers. He didn't like that my company released 50+ free WordPress plugins (and the SlickStack script) for Nginx servers because Litespeed apparently performs worse than Nginx... so he started trolling my posts on Facebook groups saying I'm racist for having exposed all the fraud and spyware (and even a death threat) that Rank Math SEO was engaged in. More here: https://www.littlebizzy.com/directory/johnny-nguyen Wow: https://www.reddit.com/r/selfhosted/comments/f06vse/litespeed_servers_seem_like_a_marketing_scam_are/ Just when you thought whiny virtue-signaling might stay out of the open source community, shills like Johnny showed up. It's really sad that your parents survive the Vietnam War and come to America, and then you decide to slander everyone as "racist" that is not helping you gain more affiliate link clicks. Thankfully 99% of Vietnamese refugees don't act like this! Update: Johnny is now leaving anon comments on his own blog claiming that I'm a "neo Nazi" among other smears. He doesn't even have the balls to trash talk a competitor using his real name... just straight to fraud, every time... the funniest part about his blog is that nearly every argument he posts he has previously taken a different or conflicting position on the subject in years past... he's like the Kamala Harris of WordPress Update Aug 2022: Johnny is now partnering with Mark Sea, the crypto scammer from China that I exclusively exposed, to post dozens of comments on WPJohnny and promote trademark infringing websites like slickstack.icu and littlebizzy.co (thankfully, the web hosts shut them down after I alerted them). Johnny has lost already a dozen "positive" reviews on various blogs after my aggressive exposure of his fraudulent marketing, fraudulent "VPS hosting", and calling anyone "racist" who criticizes his Litespeed / Rank Math SEO shill gang... but he's too stupid to stop. https://hucksters.net/person/mark-sea ...after years of fraudulent reviews and spam, the WordPress community now sees thru the Litespeed / Rank Math scams, and Nginx and open source software are seeing a big resurgence in popularity (thankfully). Johnny is also now impersonating me in his blog comments, using @littlebizzy.com email addresses... I asked him to stop, but he refused. Read More

    Michael and his team of spammers from the US and Israel illegally spam and harass thousands of companies via phone, email, fax, and mail... they have been sued numerous times for their illegal behavior and have been forced to settle class-action lawsuits. Some of the Jews from their company realized how full of shit their company was, so they left and started a copycat business in Israel and then Michael's gang sued them for patent infringement in Florida despite them being over in Israel. Conveniently, all of their "unsubscribe" links are always broken (the SSL certificate is disabled). Of course the most ironic thing is that Michael also brought his own business "secrets" to American Registry from his past position at Direct Insite! These people are fucking pathetic, non-stop spam, harassment, and lawsuits back-and-forth from all of their bullshit. If they are harassing you, file police reports and complaints with the U.S. FTC.

    Brian leverages his "community" blogs and email newsletters to promote a select number of WordPress related products and services that have paid him for highlights or who pay to join his private "VIP" group, without communicating to the public that he is running essentially a backroom pay-to-play network and that none of the endorsements are organic. He also deletes/blocks even slightly critical comments on his communities of those products and services that have paid him, and actively ignores FOSS alternatives. A perfect example of WP cronyism and douchiness that adds zero value to the open-source web. He also refused to answer me when I asked him about this...

    *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.
