    The “libel-proof” plaintiff. A plaintiff is “libel-proof” when his reputation has been irreparably stained by prior publications. At the point the challenged statements are published, then, plaintiff’s reputation is already so damaged that a plaintiff cannot recover more than nominal damages for subsequent defamatory statements. Marcone v. Penthouse Int’l Magazine for Men, 754 F.2d 1072, 1079 (3rd Cir. 1985).
    However, a court will not dismiss a defamation action merely because the plaintiff already has a bad reputation. Schiavone Construction Co. v. Time, Inc., 646 F. Supp. 1511, 1516 (D.N.J. 1986), rev’d, 847 F.2d 1069, 1072-73 (3rd Cir. 1988). Finklea, 742 S.W.2d at 516 (”[E]ven the public outcast’s remaining good reputation is entitled to protection.”) Rather the statement upon which the defamation claim is based should relate to the same matters upon which the prior bad reputation was founded, or to substantially similar matters.
    In extreme cases, a plaintiff’s general reputation may be so bad that a court will hold a plaintiff libel-proof on all matters. For example, Charles Manson or Adolph Hitler could not be damaged by defamatory statements. Langston v. Eagle Publishing Co., 719 S.W.2d 612, 623 (Tex. App. 1986).

    Mr. Alex Difrawi or Alec Difrawi qualify as a Libel-proof “Plaintiff” based on his business practices and past associations.
    He communicates under the alias


      1. The job offers unusually high pay for apparently little work
      2. SAYS well paid work has minimal requirements in terms of qualifications or experience
      3. The work involves repackaging products before shipping them out of the country, often to Africa
      4. All communication with the employer is via poorly spelled emails that lack proper structuring
      5. The offer of employment seems to be immediate without the need for an interview
      6. The company requires an upfront payment for materials or training products
      7. The employer requires too much personal information, such as bank account numbers or your social security number
      8. The job is reported as offering a residual income in return for little or no ongoing commitment or work on your part
      9. The only way to contact your new employer is via email and they use a disposable address, such as hotmail, gmail or yahoo
      10. There is an element of time pressure added by saying respondents must do as they are told in a short time frame
      11. There are multiple complaints levied against the company with the BBB or on consumer affairs websites
      12. The job is offered via a website that is plastered with testimonials that sound just a little too good to be true

    Its MLM !!!

  3. I received a call from a Mr. Matthew phone no. 626-802-4523 stating that he is with the attorney general office and I need to get a lawyer because I’m being sued for a payday loan that I took out and never paid. This is with Fast Cash International. I have never heard from these people before and have never taken a loan out from them. I don’t know what to do and he is saying they are taking me to court and I will be going to jail and they will be contacting my job about this. I don’t owe this money

  4. The DNN job scam has a new alias–The Mouten Group. The website is identical the others shown–they very nearly got me. These people need to be put out of business.

  5. I had bought a DELL laptop online for my son and Dell emailed confirming that the delivery will be the following week. When i called Dell told me that the delivery date given was for the mouse and headphone not for the laptop! even though their conforming email did not specify anything about the delivery being only for the accessories!
    I really believe Dell does that to trick and deceive people for believing that they can manage a shorter delivery which is basically fraud. At the end Dell is messing about with their own customers and i trust they will pay dearly for swindling them so evidently.

  6. Magic Services is now scamming with the name Dream Weaver Assistants. The website,, looks nice but when you do some checking, things aren’t what they seem. They have the BBB logo but they are not listed with the BBB. I asked them questions and Jeremy’s replies never answered any question and he kept referring me back to the website. He also uses a Yahoo email account instead of the company account. All signs point to TROUBLE! Do not give them any information.

  7. tjr dans l attente de ma commande debitee par cb le 05/04/2011 pour un montant de 49,31 euros merci
    tjr in waiting for my order charged by cb on 05/04/2011 for an amount of EUR 49.31 thank you

  8. There is a new website that lifts the lid on rouge traders and fraudulent businesses, it is a consumer review website, if enough of us post reviews on bad companies then it helps to warn others.
