Trustify Missed Payroll

According to a tip, Trustify missed payroll yesterday. The few remaining employees just got stiffed. If they are surprised, well then that explains why they were employees of Trustify. They were completely blindsided. Danny Boice's personal lawyer Craig White, of the Leesburg firm of Sevila, Saunders, Huddleston & White, P.C. stopped working for Danny due to non-payment. If Danny kept paying him to intimidate and lie about his wife, Craig would still be doing it. Craig, if you're reading this you deserve to be stiffed! Today, October 2, Danny Boice will be heading to New York to try and convince the stupidest investors in the world to give him more money. Not so he can make payroll but so he can make car payments, house payments, and continue to fly on his Net Jets private jet to the Italian Riveria. It appears that Cruella Jen Mellon is washing her hair of the affair and is nowhere to be seen. Stick a fork in this Turkey...

Danny Boice is Coward and a Crook

Danny Boice is a Coward and a Crook. What do you do when you're a crook and your livelihood is dependent on your web reputation? The way I see it you have three options. You could start your 12 step program, admit you cheated investors, abused family, friends and employees, apologize for being a criminal and start on a path to redemption  You could threaten to sue anyone who speaks the truth about you You could pay a company to hide the fact that you're a crook online Danny Boice is a coward and a crook, so he skipped #1 and went directly to #2. By the way, have I mentioned that Danny Boice is a coward and a crook? Because Danny Boice is a coward and a crook. I'll come back to that later. If #2 doesn't work (and it didn't with me) go directly to #3. Pay a company to place spammy backlinks to try and destroy my SEO. File a fraudulent court orders.  Something like this: An absolute false slanderous lie! There is no court order. In fact, Danny threatened me with a lawsuit and that didn't turn out well for him. He ran away with his tail between his leg....

Tim Lee – Wolf of Startupland?

Who is Tim Lee? That is the question. Late last year, I started getting tips from multiple founders regarding a strange duck, called The Sabotage Institute. Depending on who you talk to, Sabotage Institute is a VC, a Dumpster Fire, an Incubator, a Pretangel or an aptly named company designed to sabotage the reputations of companies and people. Many of the Sabotage tipsters urged me to look at one of the founders, Tim Lee. Described as a high-pressure, huckster. More than one and less than ten entrepreneurs referred to Tim with harsh epitaphs, relating tales of Tim's used-car salesman approach to recruiting founders. Fortunately, my friends who were approached by Tim were in well-positioned companies and did not feel the need to sabotage their companies,  careers, and reputations by aligning with Tim Lee and Andy Powers. Others, like Armortext, took money from Sabotage and the CEO, Navroop Mitter wrote to me to defend Sabotage when I referred to them as a possible Pretangel in this post. I was unable to find enough verifiable facts positive or negative to confirm these reports, so I filed the information away in my Tim Lee, possible wolf of startupland file. Then Comunniclique (doing business as CliqueAPI because changing your name...

Jonathon Perrelli LifeFuels Life Fool

What do you do if you're Jonathon Perrelli, the LifeFuels Life Fool, and Mr. Cranky won't stop pointing out how much of your investor's money you wasted promoting your product and yourself. How do you counter my frequent mocking because you've focused so little time creating a product? How do you counter Mr Cranky making fun of all the money and time wasted on meaningless pay-to-play awards like a CES innovation award (see post)? A competent rational person would stop focusing on self-promotion and start focusing on building real value. An intelligent strategic person would stop producing so much mock-worthy material. But a LifeFuels Life Fool would just try to block my access to his buffoonery. He'd block every person who follows Mr. Cranky on Twitter, everyone who has ever left a supportive comment on my blog posts (more about that later). This fool would block me from his social media feeds in the hopes that he could hide from critical scrutiny. JP is a snowflake too timid to face the truth. A man who craves affirmation and runs from the truth. The problem with Mr. Perrelli, LifeFuels Life Fool is he's afraid to face facts. He is afraid to confront reality...

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, "Busines," 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 monthyly 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...

RIP 3Si VC

Today is a sad day for DCTech. It appears that one of our most active, if the tonnage that one bullshits qualifies as active, VCs is no more. Just take a look at the website. http://www.3siholdings.com and you see a blank WIX web site. Ha Wix, the preferred site of fakers, fools, and felons. Come on Jason, WIX sites cost as much as $0...

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...
