The identity of the individual named in the previously missing sequential case number is, as I suspected, John Raygoza’s brother and former GM of Push Traffic Inc., Ted Molina. He was arrested today on the same charges as the other three.

In an earlier post here I speculated about what the hole in the sequence of case numbers already matched to John Raygoza, Manuel Molina and Michael Burleson meant:

This morning there are jail records for 3  individuals named in Case number BHSA077302. Next court date for all three is June 7, 2011. I’m guessing there’s at least a fourth since the case number sequence indicates number “2″ is missing from the list. I’ll forego giving my opinion about who that might be at this point.

John Paul Raygoza – Case No: BHSA077302-01, bail now $350,000

Michael Lee Burleson – Case No: BHSA077302-03; bail $455,000

Manuel Eduardo Molina – Case No: BHSA077302-04; bail $200.000

The sequence can now be completed with:

Ted Rene Molina – Case No. BHSA077302-02; bail $370,000

Molina has another case listed with an additional bail amount of $50,000. His next court date is listed as Aug. 15th. Unfortunately, I’m at a disadvantage when it comes to getting court information – only those who have a US billing address can purchase court documents online; so unless a reader with access to that information comments or emails, I can’t fill you in.

As usual the pdf of Ted Molina’s arrest details and case numbers etc. from the LA County Sheriff’s Dept. Twin Towers site is at PushTrafficSwindle.com

Edited to add:

One can no longer find any record on the Twin Tower site of John Paul Raygoza’s incarceration, case numbers, bail amounts etc. A search returns “No records match your search criteria”. Interesting when there are still pages for each of the others involved? Has a deal been made?


In the proposed class action against John Paul Raygoza and his companies (Douglas Mattern, et al. v. PushTraffic, et al.) the court has ordered an entry of default against corporate defendants: PUSHTRAFFIC, INCFORTUNE, DOT INTEL, LLC., SUCCESSRATE, INC., YOURAFFILIATESUCCESS, JUMPLAUNCH, and FUTUREENDEAVOR.COM, LLC.

However the Court also granted “defendant John Raygoza’s request for an extension of time to file a responsive pleading by no later than July 26, 2011.
Failure to timely file a responsive pleading shall result in the entry of default against defendant Raygoza.” As usual the actual document is reproduced at Push Traffic Swindle .

What should feel like at least a partial victory for the good guys doesn’t really. Raygoza has had more than enough time to transfer and hide assets, and with his upcoming criminal proceedings, and hopefully (on one level) incarceration, odds are not looking great for victim compensation in the civil matter.

The purpose for this blog originally was to spread the word about Raygoza and Molina’s scamming operations primarily to warn and prevent. I believe that, at least, was successful. There is some satisfaction on that front. I can only write about what I know to be fact or opinions based on my own experience. If anyone has suggestions for the blog’s future direction, please comment. Anything submitted respectfully is welcome.

    You could look into products that actually work, and report on ones that do not. This is something you could use to continue reporting the bad guys too.

      Thank you for the suggestion. Happily there is already an excellent site online that does exactly what you suggest. Joe at I’ve Tried That (so you don’t have to) .com is a great source of information online. He reviewss opps that people ask him to, but also has a pdf book I’d recommend about real and honest online ways to make money (not your fortune :) ). I’ve used a couple of the methods and they do work. He also has a scam section where we filed a report on the Raygoza scams.

      You can find the site at http://www.ivetriedthat.com/ and will find Joe (one of the good guys!) at his I’ve Tried That FB page as well.

    It is, indeed, cold comfort to the victims of Pushtraffic and those other scams that the firms are now in default on the legal front, unable to defend themselves against a summons, at the same time as they are now defunct, empty shells. This matters to the credibility of any further proceedings against the firm’s owners, and may also impact on the culpability of the notorious henchmen of Raygoza, who made his swindle work. That includes Raygoza’s dopey attorneys Fitzpatrick and Weitz. Hope those slimbeballs also go unpaid.



Am I surprised that Raygoza is involved (defendant) in criminal proceedings? No.

It’s just further proof of the drastic lack of integrity in the character of John Paul Raygoza. But we who are involved in the proposed class action suit against him already know about that.

Wonder if anyone in LA who attends the proceedings will see fit to fill me in on tomorrow’s outcome?

Meanwhile, when I googled one of the search terms used to find this blog I found a reference to the review site mentioned earlier here (about results on the Raygoza hosting site, JumpLaunch –  https://onlinelowblowsandsuckerpunches.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/jumplaunch-stats-and-review-more-proof/ ).

This referenced a review of a hosting/service company called StartLogic.com. Though it certainly has higher customer numbers than JumpLaunch, it also has 5 positive & 41 negative reviews. The numbers on clients hosted show the same kind of bleeding as JumpLaunch’s. StartLogic was listed starting in 2005, and in the blurb about it guess who is quoted as Genera Manager? None other than John Raygoza!

I have no way of telling when that quote was written, and to be fair to StartLogic, Raygoza may no longer be associated with them. If that’s the case it might serve them well to remove the reference to him. If he is, it could explain the negative reviews – last one in December 2010.

    I will never ever host with jumplaunch or startlogic again since john raygoza had a part of them both. The slime dog that he is. I hope he rots in hell for putting me in the poor house.

  • ex-startlogic employee  On July 14, 2011 at 16:50

    Raygoza was just a manager there. Startlogic is a brand of iPower (now Endurance). I used too work with him there in Phoenix. And yes, he was a dick back then too.

    His narcissism was unbearable too :D He loves playing the role of someone important, but doesn’t like having reality pointed out to him. Following your blog posts with interest!


An email sent from VINE services announced that Michael Lee Burleson, jailed in April on criminal charges with John Paul Raygoza and Manuel Eduardo Molina, was released today on bail.

Raygoza was released on bail May 10th and Molina on June 21st.  According to the LASD Inmate Information Center records all three men are scheduled to appear in court again on criminal charges July 15, 2011.

On June 6th John Paul Raygoza was given 6 weeks to get his lawyer problems sorted out in the proposed class action suit filed by lawyers representing 50+ named plaintiffs in a claim  naming him and Push Traffic Inc as defendants.

An email sent from VINE services announced that Manuel Eduardo Molina, jailed last month with John Paul Raygoza and Michael Lee Burleson on criminal charges, was released around noon today on bail.

Raygoza was released on bail May 10th.  According to the LASD Inmate Information Center records all three men are scheduled to appear in court again July 15, 2011.

PDFs of their inmate records are at PushTrafficSwindle



My information is that Raygoza appeared in civil court yesterday without a lawyer and was granted 6 more weeks to “get his act together”.  A bit like “if you don’t get this right, we’ll tell you to get it right again” in my opinion. I’m disappointed the creep  keeps slipping away with no consequences.

Maybe the authorities are giving him time to deal with the criminal charges for their own reasons – one can only guess why.

Edited to add:

The only information I have at the moment about the criminal court proceedings yesterday is just what anyone can find at the LASD Inmate Information Center – Booking Details site. Nothing has changed on Raygoza’s record (presumably because he is not presently incarcerated there), but new “next court date” entries of  July 15, 2011 show on Burleson and Molina’s records.

I will assume that date is valid for Raygoza’s next appearance on those charges as well.

PDFs of the current entries are at Push Traffic Swindle.

    Thank You for your post. He needs to give back all the money that he stole, hurting so many honest, innocent people. He is nothing but a sleazy con-artist, desperado jailbird.

  • Chris On June 17, 2011 at 15:48

    Raygoza is out on bail, and we can only hope they took away his passport. JPR ‘s bail, a third of a million, is only a fraction of the stash he and his close associates held before. The worry is that JPR could easily go underground – or abroad – if he is not under watch. My bet is he would head south, not north.


I hope Raygoza is going through a hell that compares with what he put so many others through. I don’t expect him to be terribly worried about the class action at this point – he has no concept of the pain, emotional and even physical, that he visited on his victims by leaving them not only disheartened, but often loaded with debt they had no way of managing. Many lost homes and family over it.

If he’s having family troubles over his felony charges, he might have an inkling of the trouble he caused for others by his fraudulent charges. I find it really interesting that he’s on the street (I could only hope not just figuratively) while the other two charged wait in jail for their court date. Could he be not only slime and roach-like, but crafty as a rat too?

Hopefully the facts will be clearer after the Tuesday court session. Though having watched JR and his brother Ted (where’s he?) skirt the law and authoritities, and flout the success of their scams, I’m thinkin’ Raygoza will worm his way out of this mess too. It must be Burleson and his nephew’s doings, right?

    You’ve got to hand it to JP Raygoza and Ted Molina, they are living the life of millionaires while Manny and Burleson are spending some quality time in the LA County lock up. I bet JP and Ted are smoking fine cigars, drinking cognac, and laughing about how Manny and Burleson are going to take a 10 years to Life kidnapping rap for them. Poor Manny, poor Burleson;  join the low blows and sucker punch club. Someone ought to drop them a line at the LA jail? I bet ole JP is promisng them even now that they will be free as birds any day now with big profits.
