Complaint / review text:
Todd Stockton alias, real name Todd J (for John) Stockton with his wife Jolynn Stockton (real name is Jolynn L Stockotn) of Littleton Colorado and formerly of Albuquerque New Mexico.
Ran two Internet Businesses (both Fake which has no products or services) at the same time. One had a Highlands Ranch Colorado mail drop (The UPS store at 9457 S University Blvd) and the other was in Chicago IL (see Randy Cohen Ripped me off - under the business name of usatradelines.com; it has a magic jack provided phone number with a Chicago mail drop)
My small claims court date is 4-3-12 and I really do not expect to see either of these Crooks there.
I got taken via their M. O. Which was, Todd would give you the 'Rush' technique of saying that the Tradeline's Statement Date was fast approaching and for you to send him a check via Next Day FedEx.
Todd would have you put his name on the check and NOT the name of the company. Also Todd would call you & give you his "Private Number" (Riiiigggggt!). He would keep calling for a brief time & when he figured that you would not be buying anymore tradelines-he would stop calling.
In the contracts, it is stated that he does not run any advertising at all (ie does not solicit). Well I found one of his internet Ads at Daype.com dated July 2011 in which it read the following:
"americastradelines.com, I'm Todd I live in Denver"
The other method he used was Referrals from credit repair businesses. The people got kickbacks for their referrals. BTW Todd Stockton has a criminal record! They do not have any phones (landlines at all), using cell phones only.
I know where they live but they do have the habit of picking up & moving real fast. Currently they are renting a 2 story white house with green trim and 2 shutter windows which are green. And 1 tree and a large hedge in front of the house.
1st of all-you are VICTIMS and you did nothing wrong. Go to Google and enter in the search box; SEASONED TRADELINES, the look for wikipedia link. Click it and read it. Wait! I save you the time and effort.
What is stated there is that the SUPREME COURT has RULED that buying a tradeline from someone who is not a relative is LEGAL! The cops (god bless them) are NOT the experts here and they are making the rules of this great country.
They are to enforce the rules. Some Cops like to act like judge, jury, prosecutor and also some love, LOVE TO PLAY PSYCHIC ie they like to tell you that they know what the DA is going to decide to do about your complaint. Then they got the Brass Balls to tell us Not to take the law into our own hands.
Well, I disagree with that! 1st go to the cops, report that you were scammed by an internet business. Ask for a copy of the Crime Victims Report. That cop will later contact the Douglas County Sheriff Department. If enough complaints arrive there they will take action.
2nd you will need this Crime Victims Report for your Small Claims Court lawsuit. File the small claims on line, pay the fees with your credit card. List the Colorado or Chicago Mail drop address (depending on which site you were scammed by)
3rd Google for the Subpoena for your local and file it out on line and print it. Google info on how to fill it out if need to. Also you can write it instead of filling it out online.
4th Proof of Service is very important, so fill it out, have a friend or relative sign & date it.
5th Send the Subpoena (s) via Certified Mail with Delivery Confirmation. To whichever mail drop you sent your FedeX money to.
6th Bank Account Information of the Stockton can be subpoenaed too, but you have to send the Stocktons a copy. Again send it to whatever mail drop you previously got scammed by.
7th Godaddy.com must be subopenaed too, for whichever website you responded to (I subpoenaed both due to I did not know Todd had 2 site going at the same time earning mucho big bucks real fast)
8th Subpoena your bank for copies of your Canceled Checks that you sent to Todd Stockton or whatever name he was using.
9th if you made photocopies or screen captures of the Stockton's websites. You will need HARD copies for court. I made such copies of AmericasTradelines.com, and Godaddy's hosted Usatradelines.com registrant information.
