Trustify – In Search of The Danny Boice and Jen Mellon Autobiography

Back in March, Danny Boice of Trustify had this huge think tank meeting with a large group of people at the Trustify offices. In attendance, employees, and representatives from a Boston-based PR firm hired to promote Boice's and Jen Mellon's "brand," a production company hired to create a feature-length documentary about Danny and Jen and a publishing company hired to ghostwrite Boice's autobiography. The first chapter of the autobiography was written and circulated the Trustify office. I'm told it was hilarious. Danny had a big falling out with the owner of the publishing company a few months later. I later learned that the company Trustify hired to write the autobiography was The Round Table Companies (RTC), run by CEO, Corey Blake. Aleksandra Corwin was assigned as the ghostwriter. Once again, Danny Boice and Jen Mellon were spending Investor's money to pump up their public profiles. This was cash, in a company hemorrhaging cash, that could have been used to build a better company, and make payroll. I'm willing to bet that Danny stiffed RTC, and the other companies involved with this autobiographical book and documentary. I bet RTC is one of the money companies on the list of unpaid Trustify Creditors. I'd like to ask all former Trustify employees,...

Jason Feimster is not a VC

Jason Feimster is not a VC, how can you tell? Let me count the ways. Do you have eyes? Do you have ears? Do you have internet access and know how to use Goggle. Do you have a brain that functions? That should be enough. Just looking at Jason Feimster should tell you Jason Feimster is not a VC. Hearing him pretend to be a VC should be a tip. A little internet research would tell you. Providing you have a functioning brain and the ability to reason, any sensible human should know that Jason Feimster is a lot of things...

Zombie Founder Danny Boice, dead man walking

The problem with Zombie's like Danny Boice is they don't know they're dead. Danny Boice, dead man walking. Danny's soon to be ex-wife and ex-retroactive Trustify founder Jen Mellon has left the building. This week her LinkedIn status went from presently employed at Trustify to ended employment in 2018. On LinkedIn for married co-founders of a dumpster fire, this is the Facebook relationship status equivalent of "it's complicated." In addition, according to a comment below, Ms. Mellon has removed every picture of her husband, Danny Boice from her facebook page. It appears she is trying to distance herself from the legal jeopardy of being a principal in a fraudelent enterprise. Call this phone number...

Alexandra Stanton, Gullible VC and Trustify Investor

Alexandra Stanton, calls herself a VC, and Trustify Investor. In this interview below, Alexandra presents herself as a seasoned investor who invests in double-bottom-line companies that "do well while doing good." Mr. Cranky thinks, not so much. If you can't see the interview yourself can find it by linking here. If you listened to the interview, you may have heard Ms. Stanton opine on the health of a very unhealthy, about to go out of business...

And Still They Persist – Buffoon Danny Boice and Trustify

Here's a crock of shit from a dip shit. Danny Boice and Jen Mellon of Trustify have been missing payroll, hemorrhaging employees and cash. Their office is always empty. The couple is on the verge of Divorce. Their Cheif of Staff and CFO have been canned. Another Attorney in a long line of Attornies just fired and withdrew from representing them and Danny has been absent from 2 recent court hearings. Another company in which Danny has worked is in trouble with investors (see just one of many investor law suites) and law enforcement (See what the Commonwealth of Virginia Found). Danny was a founder of Communiclique and Convicted fraudster Andy Powers is Danny's Yoda. Yet unrelented these clowns are reportingt that they are hiring a new Cheif Revenue Officer from industry giant Kroll (located in New York so they are probably opening the office for their new sale exec). This is a company of liars and proof of this is they read my posts, they threatened to sue if I didn't take them down and yet they do not sue. Danny Boice is a liar and that was not so, I would not be allowed to continue to expose Danny Boice and...

Ram Reddy Master Criminal with Andy Powers

Ram Reddy, who is this guy? When I published the post, The Startup DCTech Crime Family, I was surprised by the pushback on naming Ram Reddy the Godfather. Reddy has spent a long time creating the image of a legitimate businessman. Since that post, additional information, a civil lawsuit confirms my suspicions. The suit (see link Clique - Donahue v. Communiclique - Complaint) seeks actual and punitive damages and alleges constructive fraud in the inducement in the purchase and acquisition of stock in CommuniClique (dba CliqueAPI), alleging Ram Reddy and Andy Powers defrauded the plaintiff. For some inexplicable reason, the suit fails to name the company's former CFO, Tim Lee. The suit alleges that since 2006, Communiclique (DBA CliqueAPI) raised $23 million in equity through the offer and sale of stock shares to about 90 investors. The plaintiff alleges that Andy Powers, the CEO of the criminal enterprise CliqueAPI, posited that the company would end 2016 with revenue between $120 to $125 million. Powers claimed key customer wins included Uber, FedEx, Wilmer Hale, and Airbnb. Powers and by implication, Chairman of the Board member Ram Reddy and CFO Tim Lee reported 2015 revenue in excess of $71 million. While in fact, the...

Joanne Boice’s Case Against Danny Boice, Trustify

People ask me what Danny's beef with his ex-wife has to do with the alleged fraud at Trustify. Here's the thing. Danny has started a lawsuit against his wife but dropped it when he was ordered to comply with his ex-wife's request for discovery. That discovery request asked for financial information on Danny Boice, Trustify and other information. Danny dropped the case, in my opinion in order to keep his financially cooked-books under wraps. His ex-wife, however, countersued and the court ordered that Danny produce the financials. Danny defied the court and still didn't comply. What is Danny Boice hiding? Why has he gone from suing his ex-wife for full custody of his children to putting himself in jeopardy of losing any custody of his children? For those of you interested in what's happening with Danny Boice, Trustify. Months ago, he sued his ex-wife Joanne for full custody of their children. I believe Danny is using the cash from his investors to harass his ex-wife. It wasn't bad enough that he cheated on her with her best friend. Abandoned her. Left her destitute by lying about his financial condition in order to pay a bare minimum of child support. He wanted...
