Regarding Greg McClain - fraud is indeed a crime
- In a message dated 2/10/2005 5:59:09 AM Eastern Standard Time,
Can someone send me this stuff with your proofs om a disk or two. I will
send it to my friends in the FBI ti review. Let them decide if there is a crime
Of course it is a crime.
I have not participated in the investigation of this character and his
claims, largely because the guys handling it had no need of my help, but we have
been talking about it as the information was developed and I am familiar with
Greg McClain systematically "pumps" his web stats throughout the day, and
Mssrs. Parker and Goulet have done a wonderful job monitoring and recording it.
McClain does this for clear purpose. He touts his "traffic" as an
inducement to pay him for the privilege of being exposed to this nonexistant traffic.
This is a crime, it is called fraud, but the FBI will not be interested as
it falls too far below their threshhold.
Greg McClain is a liar and a thief, but he is a petty thief, of no real
significance in the grand scheme of things.
In addition to the remarkable shortfall of integrity, the man is a gutless
punk. Although he has spammed the various lists with his fraudulent claims,
thereby using these lists as an instrument in furtherance of his scheme to
defraud, he now pleads to the moderators to stifle those who expose him.
Jim has made it clear that he is going to expose McClain on his website. In
addition, I would imagine that he and William are preparing Affidavits with
supporting documentation to be provided to those who have been defrauded.
Those of you who have been defrauded should complain to McClain's attorney
general - and yours. You should file reports with your local prosecutors
offices and you should file suit against this clown in your local courts for
small claims. Be sure and keep a copy of your complaints and small claims filing
so Jim can post it on his website.
Think about this for a moment gentlemen. You do indeed have the right to
file suit locally and you can do that without a lawyer in a matter of minutes
at very little cost. McClain will either defend the indefensible, or leave
you to your default judgment.
Imagine having all those judgments on your credit report.
Once you've kicked this trash to the curb, Jim and William will no doubt
make the media aware of this fascinating exercise in crime didn't pay.

Illegitimi non carborundum
I am not a lawyer, and I don't even play one on TV. You may or may not
construe this post to be legal advice; frankly, you may construe it to be the
Holy Grail for all I care. It is my considered, and fervently held "Darwinian"
opinion that anyone who looks to posts on the Internet for legal guidance and
direction is far too stupid to deserve to survive.
On the other hand, any silly bastard who thinks they have a defamation case
to make should call me to arrange for acceptance of service. If I wasn't
anxious to straighten your silly ass out, why would I talk bad about you?
