Jason Feimster the Clown Prince of Venture Capital

Great News for DCTech! Jason Feimster, the clown prince of Venture Capital is back in business! His website is back up. It's still a cheap ass, low-rent, Wix-based web site. It still features a ton of plagiarized content (See the Clown Prince of Venture Capitals plagiarizing post). Feimster's page is still riddled with lies. But, let me say this in defense of the Clown Prince of Venture Capital's website if it was compared to the underlying, "Business," if the website was a novel it would be, War and Piece, while the business is 50 Shades of Feces (Jason, here's a link to help you figure out what the word "Feces" means). For some strange reason, cough, cough lack of money, Jason's website went AWOL in June. Maybe after being fully invested, he had a cash flow problem and couldn't pay his $6 monthly web hosting fee (see post). I'm told, but can't verify that his last fund was fully invested when he invested the last nickel in a pack of juicy fruit gum. So he closed 3Si Holdings Fund I. The crack investigative reporting team at Driven Forward were able to obtain the actual complete Fund I portfolio. Here it is: One...

Andy Powers – Friend of Danny Boice & Fellow Criminal

On March 16, 2018, the Commonwealth of Virginia's State Corporation Commision (SCC) filed against Andrew Brent Powers (AKA Andy Powers) and his company Comunniclique (DBA CliqueAPI) alleging multiple violations of the Virginia Securities Act. On July 13 of that year, the courts found Andy Powers guilty of 108 violations of the Act. Powers was also was found guilty of failing to respond to a subpoena.  That basically means he's on the run and did not appear to defend himself. Originally CliqueAPI and Powers mounted an aggressive defense and then in April, Power's Attornies, The Aegis Law Group, filed (see filing) that they were withdrawing from counsel on this case. Did Powers run out of money to pay for representation or were his attorney's alarmed that he was not acting in good faith? It seems like from that time, Andy was non-responsive to the case. According to court records, Tom Bayly, a senior investigator with the SCC, Division of Securities and Retail Franchising testified that the Division received a complaint in the fall of 2016 from the accountant of one of  CommuniClique's (AKA Clique and Clique API) investors regarding several irregularities. Subsequent investigations found that Powers was reporting to prospective and existing investors in CommuniClique, that...

Jen Mellon is Unfaithful

Mr. Cranky opens up his mail today. And today's entry from Mr. Cranky's mailbag is from a first time writer who submits the case that Jen Mellon is unfaithful. I'm sorry fans, but Mr. Cranky doesn't control his incoming mail so once again we talk the Trustify Danny Boice and Jen Mellon story. Many people will tell me that this is a tawdry tale that has nothing to do with business. As a business coach, I will tell you that I have dealt with failed execution based on a business principal going through marital distress. A company, even a good company can be in trouble when the leader is going through personal strife. In the case of Trustify, a case where the two most senior executives are married, that marital stress can destroy a company. This is a story that affects the business. What is Faith? Jen Mellon, alledged cofounder of Trustify proclaims to be a woman of faith. She claims to be born again. Yet all who know her intimately will share that Jen Mellon is unfaithful to her faith. Jen Mellon cheats and lies to her investors. She uses money intended to build Trustify for personal use. For a lavish life....

Hear Trustify’s Jen Mellon Lie on June 20th

Yes I know I'm talking about Jen Mellon, the horrible human masquerading as a do-gooder and founder of a great startup and wife of Danny Boice. For my regular readers, this is old hat and you don't have to read it. I know, I'm a bulldog with a bone that won't let go. This post is targeted for those who are not regular readers and who may be taken in by the classy facade of the rotting Potemkin Villiage that is Trustify and it's leaders. There is a group of people, sponsoring a talk by Mellon and these people who are putting their reputations on the line. I can only assume they haven't looked behind the curtain. These sponsors are aiding and abetting criminal activity by seeming to endorse two criminals. Want to hear a bunch of lies? Want to meet a pathological lying sociopath in person? Then come and hear Trustify's Jen Mellon lie about all kinds of things including how she retroactively founded a company (neat trick Jen Mellon). Multiple people forwarded to me the invitation pictured below. Not because they thought the meeting was worthwhile. Even  I, politically incorrect Mr. Cranky won't repeat the Samantha-Bee-Type-verbiage used in the emails making fun of this event featuring Jen...

The Danny Boice CollegeBoard Manifesto – @DannyBoice

Why was Danny Boice, CEO and Founder, of Trustify fired from College Board? For the same reason, he was fired from Speek, a company he c0-founded and helped tank due to his theiving. Because he's an embezzler, liar, fraud and cheat. Here is a copy of an email blast that was sent to a large mailing list of executives and employees of The College Board on February 8th, 2012. This document is just one document in a large dump of documents I received from a source. Four of my sources have validated the existence of this email. As I go through the other documents I received and verify their voracity I will publish them. The email, alleges multiple offenses perpetrated against The College Board by Danny Boice. Multiple sources have verified the email to be factual. It alleges many criminal acts of the disgraced former College Board Executive Director, Danny Boice. It also puts into question of the ownership of Speek Assets. Did the College Board own the assets of Speek? According to the document, Danny Boice's crimes include: He lied on his CV to get the job He pursued multiple outside business ventures using company assets, and on company time He charged outside...

gofundme Fail – Danny Boice Bullies his ex-wife

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 now using his superior economic position to take the children from Joanne. This is why Joanne's sister Debbie started a gofundme account to help fund Joanne's legal defense to keep her children. Why should you care? Because Danny is not fit to be a parent. Really, read the post Running Total of Danny Boice Malfecience. Do you want to live in a world with children raised by an embezzler, cheat, liar,...

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 ...
