Attention Communiclique Judge Alston and Prosecutor Hanly

Communiclique CEO Andy Powers is out on bail while charged with 8 Federal Felony Counts (See Post). Meanwhile, while out on bail, it seems that Andy Powers continues to defraud individuals, commit crimes abusing the terms of his bail. In August 2018, a court in Virginia found Andy Powers had defrauded investors and that his company Communiclique was a complete sham (see post). In the summer of 2019, a Bankruptcy court in Declared the company bankrupt and referred Andy Powers to the US Attorney for defrauding the court (see Post). He's still out there defrauding victims! It is time for Judge Rossi Alston, US Attorney, Jack Hanly, and the arresting officer, FBI Agent, Jamie Vera, to haul him back in court, revoke his bail, and protect the public by locking him away until the disposition of his court case scheduled for December 16. Since his arrest, he hired a young man to do technical work for $8,000 and didn't pay him (see the post by this victim here). According to Mihu, the young man mentioned above, Andy, stiffed a pregnant mom. On May 20th, I received a voice mail from an executive at Crescent Solutions. A transcript of the voicemail follows: Hey...

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.

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...

Communiclique CEO Andy Powers Strategy – Evade Obfuscate and Delay

Communiclique (AKA Clique API) CEO, Andy Powers appeared in Alexandra VA US District Court today. The hearing was scheduled at 11 AM. Powers entered the courtroom and took a seat in the middle section of the 3rd row and waited for the case precededing his  to conclude. He was accompanied by an anonymous civilian, perhaps his mysterious benefactor (more on that later). This was my first opportunity to observe Powers up close. He's a goofy little dufus just like Mr. Cranky. The short, physically unimpressive little man, was carefully dressed, in tan slacks, a grey shirt buttoned up high to the top button on his neck, a blue blazer, and glasses. He nearly successfully covered up 98% of his thug-life tattoos that scream...

These words came back to bite him. "On or about October...

Andy Powers Communiclique Court Delay

It appears that Andy Powers is still negotiating his plea bargain. It appears that the courts are not pursuing charges against the company's former CFO Tim Lee and Chairman of the Board Ram Reddy.  That's a head-scratcher, how could the Chairman of the Board and CFO not know their company barely had any revenues? How could they not know that the company was hemorrhaging cash?  Communiclique(aka Clique or Clique API) clearly appears to be a $50  - $70 million Ponzi scheme. I don't know if Tim Lee or Ram Reddy are guilty of any crime. Based on paragraph 26 of the criminal complaint (see below), someone with the initials PR, likely Ram Ready whose legal name is, Parvathareddy Balarami Reddy claimed he just passed on information. He didn't verify the accuracy? 26. P.R. was interviewed by the FBI and advised that all of the information he passed along to investors came directly from POWERS. It appears PR asserted he passed on information that came directly from Powers and it infers that PR didn't know the information he passed on to investors included bold-faced lies. An attorney, John P. Rowley III of  SCHERTLER & ONORATO, LLP, who claims to represent Ram Reddy in which R. Rowley asserts in a letter to...

Andy Powers Communiclique (CliqueAPI) Criminal and Bankruptcy Court Update

According to Andy Medici of the Washington Business Journal, federal prosecutors are working with Andy Powers, CEO of Communiclique, AKA Clique API on a plea deal. The article which is behind a paywall states: “The parties in this case are exploring a pre-indictment guilty plea,” the joint motion reads. "The parties are working diligently, however, the investigation in this case covers a period of several years and the financial evidence is voluminous." The government is represented in the case by Federal Prosecutor, Jack Handy. Powers' requested a public defender, which is usually only supplied to indigent defendants. Powers is represented by Eugene Gorokhov of the white-collar criminal defense firm Burnham & Gorokhov. It is not clear if they Gorokhov was assigned the case as a public defender or if Powers is footing the bill (For more information about the case see this post). Whoever is footing the bill appears to be getting their money's worth as Powers has ceased many of his bonehead actions.  Powers has clammed up. He did not respond to Andy Medici's request for comment and he got rid of moronic blog posts in which he admitted his guilt. For instance, back in May of 2019, Andy Powers wrote a post, admitting...
