youngStartup Ventures – Pretangel Alert

I just received a LinkedIn invite from Alan Levinson of youngStartup Ventures: Alan Levinson Hi Glen- wanted to know if you're seeking venture funding. If so, let me know if you'd like details about applying to present as one of the Top Innovators at The 2018 New York Venture Summit on July 10th & 11th at Convene. Email DesperateStupidFounder@youngstartup.com for more info. Regards Alan When I got this message, I went through the following thought process: Does this clown read? Can't he tell that I'm not likely to be raising money and if I tried, no one would fund me? Then I thought, I love New York, maybe I should apply to speak at the conference. Wait...

gofundme Fail – Danny Boice Bullies his ex-wife

Updated May 15, 2018: Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife yet after 24 hours, the gofundme campaign has been restored. Danny's attempt to shut her down failed. The account is back live. Original Post: Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife. Today I learned a lesson about gofundme.. they support domestic abuse, they allow themselves to be bullied. They are willing to stand and watch as Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife, Joanne Boice. Four days ago, Debbie Bailey posted a gofundme campaign for her sister, Joanne Boice. Joanne is the former wife of Danny Boice. For those of you new to the story, Danny Boice is a documented bully and crook.  See these blog posts: Running Total of Danny Boice Malfeciance Danny Boice bullies his ex-wife. He's been bullying her for years. During their 9 year marriage and more so after the divorce. Danny lives in a $2 million house, drives luxury automobiles, takes two-week exotic vacations, all over the world flying on private jets. Danny is now married to his ex-wife's good friend who he impregnated while still married to Joanne. Yet his stay-at-home wife receives a mere $700 per month in alimony. They share custody of 2 children and as Danny has driven Joanne into poverty, he is...

Open Letter to Whiny Jason Feimster

Poor little whiny Jason Feimster. He's being bullied! I know this because I just read his comment on a LinkedIn post.  It went like this: What are we at again? Speaking of conducting due diligence, have we ever spoke? I find your negative press and borderline lies almost amusing. However, your cyber bullying rhetoric is getting a little over played. It sounds like the ex-Marine, and big-time VC, who runs a $70 million Venture Fund (according to Feimster) is being bullied by a little old man who isn't a VC running a $70 million fund. Either Mr. Cranky is a bully or whiny Jason Feimster thinks you can be bullied by facts. Jason was responding to this post on LinkedIn that linked to this post. So I want to respond to this complaint in an open letter: Dear Whiny Jason Feimster, It is true we have never spoken. It is also true that I have only presented facts and from those facts, made several assertions. I'm concerned that you believe that there are borderline lies. I assure you that if there are any lies in my posts, and you can prove to me I am in error, I will remove the posts and sing your praises!!!! Let's address...

Do Your Due Diligence – More 3Si Jason Feimster BS

Please, folks, do your Due Diligence!!! If you don't know what I'm talking about.. it means you haven't read any Mr. Cranky posts this year. Let me just say that I am mildly suspicious of Jason Feimster's bona fides as a Venture Capitalist. I am slightly skeptical regarding the legitimacy of calling 3Si a Venture Capital firm and not a raging burning pile of hippo poo. Recently when it comes to scumbag scam artists I was reminded that I can write enough posts exposing the same crooks. I must repeat myself constantly to expose the frauds and cheats that inhabit the startup world. For instance, after umpteen posts about Matthew Pugesly, pretend founder of pretend company Chalant Health some dope still invested, With all the work I do the world is still able to find gullible morons willing to invest in the only company in DC that might be worse than Danny Boice's Trustify. It's disheartening that even when I do your due diligence for you, some people won't go to the old google machine and find it. So I was pleasantly surprised to find someone that at the very least, knows how to use google and found my posts on Feimster and 3Si. I recently received this email: From: someone ...

Why Won’t Danny Boice and Jen Mellon Sue Me?

They threatened, they told me if I didn't take down my blogs and apologize they'd sue me. So I posted more blogs. More posts incriminating these crooks and you know what happened? No lawsuit. Not a peep. Nothing! Nada! Why won't Danny Boice and Jen Mellon sue me? It's been over a year since they threatened me but it appears it was an empty threat. No lawsuit. They used a joke of an attorney. A cheap-ass ambulance chaser...

Joanne Boice – Exploited and Terrorized ex-wife of Danny Boice of Trustify

Joanne Boice, married for nine years, was a reportedly faithful stay-at-home wife, and loving mother of two beautiful children. Her life was storybook until she found out her husband of nine years, Danny Boice, CEO of Trustify was having an affair with her best friend and married mother of two, Jennifer Mellon. Joanne's "friend," Jen Mellon became pregnant, and she then married Danny then after they were married, they both got divorced from their respective first spouses. According to Joanne Boice and several witnesses, since the divorce, Danny who lives in a $1.7 Million home, drives a Tesla, has servants, flies on private jets for luxury vacations, has a million dollar beach house, plays Joanne $700 per month in alimony and zero child support to a woman who had not had a job in 9 years. Danny who runs a company that has raised a reported $7 million in venture capital for a Private Investigative startup has sicked his Private Investigators on his wife. Taking pictures of her and their children through windows in their home. She has found GPS tracking devices attached to her car. Danny has continually bullied her and is now using his economic advantage to terrorize her in the courts...

Matthew Pugsley is a conman and he Strikes Again

Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Not everyone knows this about him as evidenced by a phone call I just had with a friend. This buddy, who shall remain nameless, was recently at a cocktail party where he met a guy who had no idea Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Over drinks and small talk their conversation went something like this: Sucker: "So what do you do?" Friend: "I'm a Venture Capitlist." Sucker: "Really? I just made my first venture investment." Friend: "In what company?" Sucker: "A little company called Chalant Health. I don't know much about it or how they're doing but my boss invested six figures." <Awkward Silence as Friend struggles not to lose his drink through his nose> Friend: "You know you might want to google them." Hey Sucker, let me google that for you! Try this link. See how easy that was? Do you know what you would have learned had you done that before you stroked a check? Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Let me make this perfectly clear, Pugsley ain't no businessman. Pugsley ain't no saint. Pugsley ain't no upstanding citizen. Matthew Pugsley is a conman, and Chalant Health is a house of cards. This isn't Matt's first con. This isn't Matt's first company from which he embezzled...

Blockchain Blockheads

It happened with Crowd Funding, it happened with Beanie Babies, it happened with Tulips and it's happening now with cryptocurrency and blockchain. Whenever there is a new "Big Thing." Whenever it's going to be the "Next Big Thing." There's a group of know-next-to-nothings, willing to monetize a know-nothing's greed in order to profit from shit they do not understand. Now I'm not saying Blockchain isn't going to be big. I think it's going to be HUGE! I'm talking HUGE with a silent H. Yet, when there is a gold rush, there is a rush for charlatans to insert themselves between the greedy and their wallets. You can tell when a market is heating up with grifters when there are more conferences on the market then there are marketeers. Take the recent deluge of Blockchain conferences booking any speaker who can spell blokchain (which leaves me out and thus why I'm ranting here) filling the stage with myopic one-eyed men (which is an expression that leaves out one-eyed women or even the more woke one-eyed-they) that rush into these nascent (which is a word that I have no idea what it means but man doesn't it make me sound smart) in an effort to fleece...

Facebook Cry Babies

Ohhhhhh no! Facebook has too much psychographic information on me! How did they do that? I mean how did they get everything I gave them? Are you trying to tell me they're monetizing my data? I thought Facebook was a tax-supported, NGO, like the public library. I had no idea they had a business to run. I never thought that when I liked a post bashing my useless Congresswoman, Barbara Comstock, on Facebook that Facebook would know I did that and track that I hate people who hide from their constituents, are owned by the NRA, and support corporate interests over human interests. I thought when I post about her, that was a secret between Babs and me! Now, I come to find out Facebook knew I am angry with Barbara? Even though I typed all that stuff in lowercase which everyone knows is the same as whispering. Are you saying that if I don't pay for it, I'm the product, not the customer? Shit! Does that mean I'm the product of air? Do I need to opt out of free oxygen? Not because it's getting more polluted each day but does air have data on my nostrils and my lungs? Stop friggin whining! Shame...
