|Arcadia Badda Bing?|
One of the most harrowing stories being told by the victims of the Arcadia GemCoin Ponzi Scandal is that some who talked about going to the law in hopes of recovering their stolen money from the Chen/Wuo Mob were threatened with the likelihood of a violent death.
One gentleman I had the honor of speaking with yesterday afternoon told me of the unhappy experience of having a pistol held to his head while the possible consequences of talking with anyone in law enforcement were explained to him, and in the most unmistakeable terms.
Apparently making claims of possessing an absolute governmental power have pretty much been the rule for USFIA/GemCoin leadership. The picture above, originally posted on the Chinese language WeChat social media site, was used to reinforce a message that Steve "The Human Amber Machine" Chen wanted his sorely abused clientele to understand. Those who do not keep their lips zipped about being deprived of their life savings ran the risk of serious physical rearrangement.
Oh, and please correct me if I am wrong here. Is it actually legal for a civilian, even one with pretensions of special government privileges and a little yellow fake law enforcement badge on his cheesy polyester shirt, to own a military grade sniper rifle in California? One capable of killing any victim he chooses, and from as much as a thousand yards off?
While absolute governmental power over life and death might be the norm in mainland China, here in the United States things are not done in quite that way. However, recent arrivals from a country where such power is both unchecked and total might not understand these differences. And apparently Steve Chen was not above giving his distraught GemCoin victims an incorrect interpretation of legal life in America.
That, along with bogus claims of having been given a state sanctioned right to administer the most deadly forms of legal justice all by himself, made Chen appear like the Judge Dredd of GemCoins to his victims. Yellow star and all.
Some GemCoin Ponzi victims actually did go to the Arcadia Police Department to complain about these kinds of unpleasantness. Including the stories of death threats, especially the one about the poor fellow who had a gun held to his head.
However, the on-duty Police Detective informed them that such things were not within the purview of the Arcadia Police Department, and rather they should hire a lawyer and pursue a civil suit instead.
Something that makes you wonder just how deep the corruption goes behind the Peacock Veil.
A picture that exposes the ridiculous lies of Johnny GemCoins
Here is how the Arcadia Weekly's star reporter Joe Taglieri explains this one.
Arcadia Officials Respond to Document Connecting Councilman with Gemcoin CEO - Arcadia Council Member John Wuo on Wednesday denied having a connection to an active company involving the founder of a controversial cryptocurrency known as Gemcoin.
Though he declined requests for an interview, via text messaging Wuo said he told George Klau, the CEO of Arcadia-based 24 HD Surveillance, to remove his name from documents filed with the California Secretary of State.
Wuo also indicated that Klau agreed to remove the councilman’s name and address from the company’s state filings, and that Klau was unaware of who entered Wuo’s information in the document that the Secretary of State’s office approved in March 2014 and confirms the company is currently active. Klau could not be reached for comment.
The “statement of information” document surfaced at the Arcadia City Council meeting Tuesday when resident David Arvizu referenced it in his presentation during the conclave’s public comments segment.
The document lists Wuo and two Arcadia businessmen as principals in the limited liability corporation that purports to sell security camera systems. Steve Chen is the head of USFIA Inc. and Alliance Financial Group, which are the parent companies behind the Gemcoin virtual currency. Solomon Sakurada, who also goes by the name Solomon Yang, also has ties to Gemcoin, Chen and Wuo through the U.S. China Consultation Association, or UCCA.
The document shows 24 HD Surveillance’s address to be 135 E. Live Oak Ave., which is the same Arcadia address for Chen’s companies and UCCA.
Wuo was traveling out of state and did not attend the council meeting.
In a text message Wuo noted that connections he may have to Chen and Gemcoin “[do] not have anything to do with city business.”
In a late-June interview with Arcadia Weekly Wuo downplayed his connections to Chen, Gemcoin and the assortment of Chen-affiliated entities based at the Live Oak Avenue office complex. Wuo denied having ongoing financial ties or business relationships with Chen, claiming in the past he only did real estate consulting for the entrepreneur.
City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto would not comment on Wuo’s affiliation with Chen or Gemcoin but he did explain the city’s stance on the investment product, which in recent weeks has drawn vocal criticism from investors who claim to have been swindled.
To all of that we here at The Tattler added the following:
What we find in Joe Taglieri's excellent reporting is the standard John Wuo defense. Borrowing from the legendary Sgt. Schultz from Hogan's Heroes, Wuo's claims of "I know nothing!" continued unabated. Just as they have with the rest of that GemCoin related bad behavior Wuo has been implicated in.
However, in this case that is now no longer possible for Mayor Johnny GemCoins. And Sergeant Schultz could be well on his way to the "Klink."
Below is a photo of John Wuo willingly signing the very same business document we discussed above. Two seats away on his left? Steve Chen. The guy whose business affairs Wuo has repeatedly claimed to know nothing about. Over and over again.
How much more of this can the government of the City of Arcadia tolerate? Of course, that is assuming they aren't also a part of the GemCoin crime wave.
There is always that.
One more thing
If you are going to Arcadia City Hall this evening to join the protest against USFIA, Steve Chen and John Wuo, plan to arrive no later than 6 PM. I hope to see you then.
