What would you say if you came across a company that publishes on their website that if you sell their truck nuts for less that the prices they sell for they will “not ship any future orders”? That was posted on their site for almost two years until they were called on it. Then they changed it to “you can set your price as in the past”? But in the past, they fixed the price. Then they deny that dealers of theirs conspire with them to fix prices? I have a copy of a letter sent to TRAILERTOYS, one of their dealers, that states they can NOT discount the price because of the agreement with the manufacturer. That was Jan 09.
Then the owner of the company, John D Saller, “created” several identities (donwilsonflorida, bigrigtex, harry333, and posted lies regarding one of his compettitors. He accused them of identity theft and bait and switch. We have documented IP adresses proving that it came from the owner of Bulls balls. Received: from BBBHCOFFICE (unknown [220.127.116.11])

The above IP address has been used to post under the created names by John D Saller of BullsBalls and Jaydee sales llc in
AZ. Additionally, by masquerading as anonymous third party
behavior may subject them to liability to these third parties, and may
constitute a civil and criminal violation of the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act 18 U.S.C. 1030 et seq.
What would you do? Well for one I would stay away from that site. The owner has breached his contract of privacy, and the web master John R Beaman of the wwwebfactory stated he had no privacy on his site that runs the checkout for sales. HMMM, Beaman gets all the personal and credit info and provides ZERO privacy.
Well, since Saller has committed felonies in my opinion, so a criminal complaint has been filed. States attorney generals have been notified and the investigation is underway.
As you can see and intuitively feel, impersonating someone to post lies about a business is criminal, in AZ it is a felony.
Post your thoughts.
