Matt De Leon Attempts To Save His Career by Rewriting History

Matt De Leon is either a complete imbecile or a coconspirator in the Ponzi Scheme that was Trustify.  My money is on both. Everything I've been told and observed leads me to believe he's both a moron and a crook. By way of background, who is Matt De Leon? According to Matt's LinkedIn profile (which I have to view under an alias because for some unfathomable reason Matthew De Leon blocks me on social media. Insert sad face here.) he joined a company called Trustify in May 2016. As the story of Trustify unfolded over the years it is apparent the company defrauded investors who thought they were investing in a company, only to find out they invested in a facade of a company which in reality was just a personal bank account for its founders and officers. Investors watched as $18 million dollars evaporated funding a lavish luxurious lifestyle for the companies executives. After scores of interviews with former Trustify employees, vendors, investigators, and investors and scouring a multitude of lawsuits against the company it is apparent that Trustify's revenues were greatly exaggerated and that fraud was committed (see this investor lawsuit). Matt De Leon is trying to claim he was...

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...

Jennifer Mellon Generously Donates Stolen Money

Jennifer Mellon, the co-founder, former President and Board Member of Trustify, a company that was an elaborate Ponzi Scheme that bilked investors out of $18 million dollars. Investors in Trustify accuse Danny Boice and Jen Mellon of embezzling and defrauding investors out of millions of dollars. While the company had very little revenue, Jennifer Mellon and Danny Boice paid themselves $200K per year each. It is alleged that Mellon and Boice transferred $750 thousand from Trustify into another account. The couple allegedly used investor money to buy a $1.6 million home in Alexandria, Virginia and a million dollar vacation home in NJ. They traveled the world in a private NetJet, taking elaborate vacations with company money. Had a company paid, maid, nanny, groundskeepers, and chauffeur. Millions of investor cash evaporated into thin air thanks to Jen Mellon and Danny Boice. Jennifer generously donated investor money to charities like the Campagna Center. She leveraged those investments to develop a relationship with an active member of the Compagna team, Rebbeca Chatterjee. Then Jennifer Mellon leveraged that relationship to land a job with Ms. Chatterjee's husband, Neil Chatterjee, the commissioner of FERC. Mellon was generous with the money she stole from investors and she used...

What Did Bucknell Alumni Association Do With Jen Mellon?

When Jen Mellon was the President of Trustify she reportedly spent over $800 thousand on PR efforts. Most of that money was directed to pump up her public persona and build her fame. Today all of that is tumbling down. Everything Mellon touches turns rotten. Today, Jennifer Mellon, parlayed Trustify Investor-funded PR to land a job she is totally unqualified for as the confidential assistant to Niel Chatterjee, of FERC. Will Mellon's long unending record of failures continue at FERC and bring down the US Government? Let's make sure we're all on the same page of Jennifer Mellon's accomplishments before we move on to her latest achievement in Failure. Executive Director of Failed 40-Year-Old Charity - According to Jen Mellon's LinkedIn page (since removed but here is a copy Profile Jen Mellon - linkedin feb 19) Jennifer Mellon was the executive director of the Joint Council On International Children's Services (JCICS). Shortly after Mellon left the organization and quite probably the reason she left, Pound Pup Legacy, an adoption industry watchdog reported the organization was financially failing and leaked this internal document. The damage inflicted on the JCICS by Mellon proved fatal. The organization is gone...

Love Your Haters

You have to love your haters. If you're a person of principle. If you're true to your values. Then you have to love your haters. That's the reason I was flattered the other day when a semi-literate, inarticulate, hater created a web site that pays homage to Mr. Cranky. Thank you whomever you are. You're a hater and you have to love your haters. Oh wait...
