Hi Michael – hoping to reach the person who looks after health insurance at Rexxfield? Because chances are you’re probably throwing away $500-1000 per employee per year. That’s how much we save our clients on average.

We know every US healthcare plan there is and we can match your needs to the best possible rate.

We’ll also manage changes painlessly when laws/regulations change, to keep you up to date with compliance.

If it makes sense to talk, do you have 10 minutes in the next few days?

If not, who do you recommend I speak with?

CALLOUS: Mark Jeftovic CEO easyDNS Reviews Willful Blindness and Defamation

In Internet defamation, ISP Ethics on July 26, 2015 at 8:18 am
let_it_be_knownMark Jeftovic CEO of easyDNS appears to have taken a position that is diametrically opposite to that of the Good Samaritan. His company seems to have taken a position of Willful Blindness (sometimes called ignorance of law, willful ignorance or contrived ignorance or Nelsonian knowledge). This is a legal term used which describes a scenario in which a person tries to avoid civil, criminal, or in this case moral liability, for a wrongful act, by intentionally putting him or herself in a position, where he or she can claim to be unaware of facts that would render him or her culpable.
We take issue with the following excerpt from Mark Jeftovic of’s June 19, 2015 post:
Mark Jeftovic CEO of easyDNS Reviews  provides platform for defamation while turning a blind eye to the plight of victims.

CALLOUS: Mark Jeftovic CEO of easyDNS Reviews provides platform for defamation while turning a blind eye to the plight of victims.

“If litigants want to pursue specific [easyDNS] customers they will always be better served to leave the ISPs and the vendors out of it, that way they can truly sit where they belong – as impartial observers on the sidelines awaiting a legal decision one way or the other.”

.– See more at:

Whereas, notwithstanding the legal immunity provisions for Internet service providers, easyDNS IS NOT an “…impartial observers on the sidelines”. When Mark Jeftovic and continues to knowingly provide, after notification, a publication platform for defamation and harassment, it they are most certainly morally culpable. The United Nations International Bill of Human Rights, Article 12 states:
“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”
It is this investigator’s opinion that Mark Jeftovic’s, as Internet service provider and host for allegedly defamatory material, did knowingly and actively subject Mr. Andy Lehrer to ongoing personal injury in the form of defamation, and that their inaction with respect to investigating, and terminating the services causing Mr.  Lahrer’s injuries, constitutes active conspiracy with, and furtherance of the antagonist’s word-crimes.

But, there are also kudos for Mark Jeftovic of


WikiLeaks_logoIssue is taken above because, in my opinion, the ongoing publication of the alleged defamation against Andy Lehrer does not serve the public interest. It would be remiss of me not to also point out a balancing praiseworthy decision made by Mark Jeftovic of Namely, his decision to help enable the ongoing availability of WikiLeaks after one of his competitors pulled the plug on the site. No doubt, this decision is supported by many, including myself, who see the benefits of intense scrutiny of secrets that work against humanity’s best interests, and it will also be condemned by those who have deeply held superstitions about the trustworthiness of the authorities to make decisions on our behalf.

SMEARED: Frederick J. Pollak CEO Tracfone has a “Google Problem”

In Removing Search Results on May 20, 2015 at 7:25 pm

This is one of those amazing cases where a high profile public or business personality has his or her reputation hammered by unethical websites, operating behind loopholes in laws that allow them to publish defamation without fear of liability.

Frederick J. Pollak is CEO of Tracfone, which will be approaching $2 billion in annual revenue in 2015. And yet, a cursory googling of Pollak returns disturbing search result pages. The problem is, Google seems to have a rapacious appetite for scandal, to compound this appetite, Google seems to give undue preference to unfounded negative sentiment causing it to rank very high in search results when closely associated with proper nouns, such as business names, when this case, the personal name of Frederick J. Pollak.

Our friends at have developed a system that can suppress these types of search results quickly and economically. Simply enter the search phrases that display unfavorable results in Google Search and choose your country (other countries available after submitting):

SCAM: CEO Alok Goel allows users to sign up with other people’s email accounts!

In Bad Customer Service Experiences, Poor Corporate Ethics on April 1, 2015 at 10:49 am

Alok Goel the CEO of is harassing me because he is allowing his users to register their phone numbers using my email account, without my authority. As an example, I’ve received numerous harassing and annoying email messages relating to phone numbers +91-99-77-354365  and +91-97-23-294374 give on arriving in my inbox, despite my recent and numerous demands sent to [email protected] insisting that my email address be removed from the database.

These are very unethical business practices. Alok Goel clearly has no empathy or sympathy for his fellow man if he allows this type of harassing behavior to go unchecked.

AtCost Fulfillment DBA Sued for Defaming a Competitor Anonymously Richard Andrew Gorman

In, Internet defamation, Online Defamation Rebuttal,, on March 11, 2015 at 10:14 am

Bjarte Rene, CEO of Private Label Nutraceuticals LLC,  filed a  defamation lawsuit against AtCost Fulfillment DBA, or more accurately the holding company Vanguard Economics, LLC and alleging that its owner, Richard Andrew Gorman, is responsible. If the allegations prove to be founded, it would appear that a pattern is emerging based on the similar lawsuit referenced at the bottom of this page.

Rich Gorman is allegedly a registered sex offender, with numerous charges filed, but disposition unknown (see references in foot notes) Pennsylvania State Police Sex Offender Listing for RA Gorman

The nexus of the quarrel seems to be summarized in paragraph 15 of the second amended complaint which reads as follows:

“On information and belief, in late 2013, Gorman became angry with Rene because he believed that Rene sought to hire away a key employee of AtCost Fulfillment. On further information and belief, Gorman was extremely angry over his impression of what had occurred. Gorman, who has a prior criminal record and is known for his hot temper, has special expertise in on line branding and reputational management, which would necessarily include special knowledge as to how to inflict damage to the reputation of an individual or entity via online postings.”

Caution, do not draw conclusions yet!

This case is only just been brought to our attention. Although we have no reason to suspect bad faith in this case, it is not uncommon for plaintiffs, who are au fait with search engine optimization, to launch an internet defamation campaign against a competitor,  by using a lawsuit as a weapon, without being liable for defamation due to the privilege that comes with the public filing in court. A few little red flags pop up with a cursory review of this complaint, particularly with respect to the little snippet in paragraph 15 of the complaint (in bold above) that add no legal substance to the complaint, but does set the stage for prospective customers of, who might stumble across the complaint. This interpretation of the intent of the lawsuit is further evidenced by the conspicuous press releases issued by the plaintiffs such as this one.

If we take the lawsuit at face value in good faith, then the use of press releases as a prudent and legitimate way for the Plaintiffs to mitigate some of the damage being suffered because of the alleged wrongdoing by Gorman.  In most jurisdictions, a victim of defamation has a legal obligation, inasmuch as it is possible, to mitigate damage that is being done by the defamatory acts of others. In other words, plaintiffs can not just sit back and expect a jackpot jury verdict when they had the ability to act, but did not.

These claims have also found their way onto certain “message boards” and “chat rooms.” Somehow some of these sites have high search engine rankings and you may be exposed to these posts.
