Another Day, Another Day In Court For Andy Powers Communiclique CEO

For the past 2 months, for the past 3 court dates, Andy Powers, the co-founder, and former CEO of a criminal enterprise and $50 Million Ponzi Scheme known as Communiclique (AKA Clique API) promised the court he would have a new attorney in just a few weeks. He's been promising to show up with his dream legal team any day now. Well, boy did he not disappoint today.  At 10:55 AM, five minutes before his scheduled 11 AM Case Review. In walks Powers with a virtual "Dream Team" legal team. He's followed by super attorney Johnnie Cochrane, Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Santa Clause, and the Easter Bunny. Of course, I'm kidding, there is no easter bunny and there is and probably never was a mythical LA Attorney who was going to defend Andy Powers. That was just a delaying tactic. For those of you who are not up to speed. Powers started a fake company, raised millions of dollars. Then used investor cash to fund a lavish lifestyle and totally cheated investors.

Ross Blankenship Failed Entrepreneur and Pretend Angel King

There are a ton of Ross Blankenship fans out there. And these, let's call them "fans" for lack of a better word love to tell stories about this creep. None of the stories are flattering. Since I last published a post about Ross, I've received multiple tips from people who worked with him. The consistent Ross Blankenship Story from all sources goes like this. The poor guy achieved two things in his life...

Jennifer Mellon and Danny Boices’s Trustify Woes Add Up

Are you keeping score of Jennifer Mellon and Danny Boice's Trustify Woes? Well, I am. First, there is the bankruptcy case that alleges Jen Mellon and Danny Boice embezzled cash and defrauded investors. In this suit, Anchorage Capital who invested $6.5 million in Trustify alleges that Boice transferred $750 thousand per year into a personal account used to fund Boice and Mellon's household expenses. This was in addition to the $600 thousand a year the couple paid themselves to be officers of a money-losing dumpster fire. The suit alleges many transgressions against all the Trustify officers but specifically names Jen Mellon and Danny Boice multiple times. The suit stresses the importance of cutting Boice and Mellon off from the company's cash as soon as possible (see paragraphs 34 and 25 from the suit). 34. The facts likewise show the dire need for this Court to issue an Order maintaining Trustify's status quo and enjoining Boice, Jennifer Mellon, and Trustify's other current and former officers or representatives, from disbursing any funds or transferring any assets other than those needed to meet Trustify's day-today obligations, and from continuing to engage in the wrongful conduct that is causing damage to the interests of Trustify, its stockholders, and its investors. 35. Indeed, given...

Jen Mellon’s New House – Trustify Investor Asset Search

(Updated 3:25PM 8/06/2019) When we last left the scurrilous retroactive co-founder and former President of Trustify,  Jennifer Mellon, estranged wife of Danny Boice, she landed a cushy government job as the Confidential Assistant to FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee. At that time she was engaging in real estate transactions that feel a lot like money laundering and fraud to me. On March 18, 2019, Mellon's soon to be ex-husband, Danny Boice transferred the title of their Sea Isle NJ, beach vacation home to Mellon for $1 dollar. That's right, you heard me...

The Arraignment of Andy Powers Communicliqe

It's a warm muggy August morning, 10:37 AM in Alexandria VA as I enter the US 4th District Court House, sans phone, or any electronics (which is why I had to do the extremely competent, near-professional, artistic collage and rendering of the back of Powers' head as he faced the judge), show my ID, go through the scanner and up the escalator. In the courthouse second floor lobby, I am surprised to see Eugene Gorokhov of Burnham & Gorokhov, Andy Powers' former attorney assigned as a public defender. Former because Gorokhov represented Andy up until two weeks ago when Powers dismissed him. Andy who couldn't afford an attorney and was therefore assigned a public defender all of a sudden found the money to afford private counsel. Two weeks ago, this scum-sucking pig told the court he was firing Gorokhov, who was hired as a public defender in favor of a newly hired although still not yet hired, unnamed private attorney thus delaying the arraignment two weeks. That's why we're all here today (see more here). If you are not familiar, with the Powers case. In 2006, Andy Powers started Communiclique (aka Clique API). In summer 2018, a Commonwealth of Virginia Court found...
