Well I have not verified all this data, but it sure does not sound good...
Take a look at Nevada Health Care Network now.
The "for lease" sign in the window tells most of the story. The empty office behind it tells the rest.
"I could not locate the company. The phones were disconnected."
"After everything was closed down, we were still getting ripped off. Our account, our credit card, was being looted for the monthly fees.
News 3's Darcy Spears first exposed a local company called Wholesale RX that sells low cost prescriptions from other countries. Problem is, the drugs are not approved in the US, so they're illegal and could be dangerous. Since the investigation, the FDA has started to crack down on these companies.
And this site aims to connect the same person to Traffic Power & home buying scams.
PLEASE follow this guy Splain! HE IS A CROOK! He burned my wife and I in 2001 in a "we buy houses" scam. We got sued by the bank and had to file BK!! He also has ties to an Intenet Placement Company on Jones formerly called Traffic Power. I think called First Place. He needs prosecuted. I'd help!
The same name, Richard Splain, is also listed in a customer complaint email on Traffic Power Sucks:
I had even talked with Rich Splain one of the owners of TP who refused to help me get the service promised. I feel I was ripped off and deserve a refund like everyone else who was cheated by TP.
Wonder how many loose ends are still left untied? I doubt Richard tries suing MSNBC anytime soon, eh...
I know, I know, there might be multiple Richard Splain's, but this SEC info page lists him next to Matthew Marlon:
Xtreme Webworks has retained the Law Firm of Gordon & Silver, Las Vegas, Nevada to represent its interest in the pending litigation against former employees and defendants, Matthew Marlon and Richard Splain.
This document on Edgar Online also connects Richard Splain to Xtreme Webworks.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Not too long ago the Wall Street Journal also profiled the same Matthew Marlon & his street name:
Mr. Marlon, 61 years old, filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy-court protection in 1996. In 1997, Mr. Marlon was indicted on charges of conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance. He later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, related to possession of a chemical used to make methamphetamine, and was sentenced to three years of probation, including six months of home confinement. The court record for his drug offense said he also had an alias, "Jimmy Ray Houts."
In case anyone is wondering why I care about this information, Traffic Power is a company that cold called me to promote a junky website that I am embarased to own. They later sent me a C&D claiming over a million dollars in damages, and then sent me a lawsuit. In spite of hiring a lawyer and personally talking to their lawyer I still have no idea of any specifics in why the lawsuit occured - other than them thinking they could push me around.
I spoke to one of their former employees last weekend, and need to talk to my lawyer about it first, but I may soon interview him. Stay tuned!
