USFIA Amber Alert: Steve Chen's Long Range Sniper Rifle

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 MachineChen 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.

  3. The City of Arcadia is pretty deep into this mess. Once the FBI completes their investigation, I'm sure more heads than John Wuo and Steven Chen are going to roll. Arcadia's city employees loved the money coming in to Arcadia. They didn't care where it came from and now the chickens are coming home to roost.

  4. If I were the investors who were bilked, I would sue John Wuo, Steven Chen and the City of Arcadia for sanctioning John Wuo's activities as official business. Arcadia lent the credibility of their city and its city councilman behind the GemCoin scam which caused people to invest. They should all be sued.

    1. The city did not sanction Wuo's participation in a ponzi scheme with a thug. Chen is a criminal and Wuo is his accomplice, but the city is not their organization. The city staff may irritate you, but they are not criminals.
      And I don't work for the city. Far from it. I just know it's important to keep the focus on the real enemy.

    6. You really believe that? My take is certain people turned a blind eye to what Wuo and Chen were up to because it meant more money for themselves and the city. How much of that $160,000,000 raised by the GemCoin Ponzi scheme was plowed into Arcadia real estate and development do you think?

    7. I think the Arcadia city staff are probably a lot like ours - not exactly dull witted, but obedient to the bureaucracy they serve. I don't think they'd break the law. Could be wrong. After all, apparently we had a staff member who was so bad she took out records and destroyed them, then sued the city. And won?

  5. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to corruption in Arcadia. This city has become a mecca for the dirty money coming out of Communist China as fast as the party apparatiks can take it before the whole ponzi scheme which is the Chinese economy implodes as its now starting to do.

  6. Remember when Japan was considered invincible and was buying up all the real estate in America. The Chinese will do the way of Japan as their economy collapses. The spigot of corrupt money that has flowed into Arcadia will soon end.

  7. I'm not a handwriting expert but those signatures look identical. John Wuo is a crook as well as a liar. I hope he goes to jail for a long time for his role in cheating all those poor people of their life savings.

    1. I disagree that they are identical. There are slight differences in the formation of the h, the w and the u. However, I'm no expert either, and think those could be ordinary variations given speed, mood or whatever handwriting analysts use.

  8. With this statement "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" is what small town police say and do everyday, protect the ones to employ them. This is another reason why these small town protection service police departments need to be replace by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department they take every threat seriously and respond to the citizens that employee them. Several local cities who have these small town police departments in the SGV have had similar issues and continue to cover up stall until guilty party can be warned and lawyer-ed up to build a defense for their illegal or criminal actions.

    1. Total compensation for a Police Detective in Arcadia is around a quarter of a million dollars. For that you get lickspittles only willing to do the bidding of corrupt City Hall officials like Wuo.

  13. It will be interesting to see how our government, local, state and federal handles this. Things are strained right now between our two countries. It would be hopeful that this problem is continued to shown that these findings were found here on a local level. One question is, how far up the legal chain were they aware and how long have our defenders of the law aloud this to continue? For sure local residents that were swindled under this sanction, especially if they had come forward earlier and at a risk to them selves be reimbursed. Don't you think?

  19. We've been through this before, in Chicago and Detroit in the 1920's, with the immigration of outside cultures that weren't familiar with our rule of law. The USA has now evolved tools to deal with this kind of thing:

    The American Mafia, a separate entity from the Mafia in Sicily, came to power in the 1920s Prohibition era after the success of Italian-American neighborhood gangs in the booming bootleg liquor business. By the 1950s, the Mafia (also known as Cosa Nostra, Italian for “Our Thing”) had become the preeminent organized-crime network in the United States and was involved in a range of underworld activities, from loan-sharking to prostitution, while also infiltrating labor unions and legitimate industries such as construction and New York’s garment industry. Like the Sicilian Mafia, American Mafia families were able to maintain their secrecy and success because of their code of omerta, as well as their ability to bribe and intimidate public officials, business leaders, witnesses and juries. For these reasons, law-enforcement agencies were largely ineffective at stopping the Mafia during the first part of the 20th century. However, during the 1980s and 1990s, prosecutors in America and Italy began successfully employing tough anti-racketeering laws to convict top-ranking mobsters.

  23. The City of Arcadia is complicit by their silence. The city manager and councilmen didn't want to know where the donations for a trip to China came from (developers) after the funds were solicited by John Wuo. So they didn't look into. They have heard about Steve Chen, Solomon Yang, GemCoin and John Wuo for months. But like maternity hotels, visa scams, massage parlors they chose not to look into the allegations. Not wanting to know and not investigating is a breach of office and public trust and they should all be ashamed.
