BURLESON and MOLINA STILL IN JAIL

THINGS I THINK I KNOW AND THINGS I DON’T YET KNOW…

John Paul Raygoza, Michael Lee Burleson and Manuel Eduardo Molina were all arrested and jailed when criminal charges were laid in late April.

Two of them are still in jail; Raygoza posted bail (reduced from $450,000 to $350,000) and was released. I wonder why his bail was reduced and he alone released.

I think I know the connection between Raygoza and Molina – Manuel is John’s nephew? Interesting that he’s still sitting in jail.

The connection between Burleson and Raygoza is a little harder to track – Burleson is “founder and CEO” of LeadFlowDirect. Is their connection something as simple as membership at the same gym, or have they both been involved in the sort of scams for which Raygoza is known?

Lead Flow Direct appears to be an above-board international company. Was Raygoza ever involved there?  Was Burleson involved in any of the Push Traffic group of companies?

In the end, I guess I don’t really care whether Burleson and Raygoza are connected in business or not – the main thrust of this blog is publicizing JP Raygoza’s business operations in the hope of sparing new marketers the disappointment and heartbreak of having credit card and bank accounts raped by Raygoza’s scams.

Searches for other domains owned (and unprotected) by Raygoza – using a number of search terms including addresses, phone numbers and similar names yielded a few more results:

Lead Source Academy at two web addresses, but same physical address in Calabasa, CA, as well as same phone and fax numbers:

http://jumpdash.com and http://www.leadsourceacademy.com/ – both of which appear to be clones of:

Live Lead Pros at http://liveleadpros.com – different numbers and a physical address in Fort Lauderdale, FLA.

And a site which had nothing on it last I checked but is registered to Raygoza is ComplianceCalls.com – again at the Calabasas, CA address.

Interesting aside – it appears Raygoza is using hosting services other than his own hosting company,  jumplaunch, these days – perhaps hoping to distance himself from the messes he’s made?

The “Beware Of”  post on this site will be updated to show these website names.

And unless I come across new information, I’ll be waiting to see what transpires when Raygoza, Molina and Burleson make their next court appearance on the “torture” charge!

    I check this well-managed website every week, as it is now the leading news room for the increasingly fraught developments surrounding the Raygoza Gang.

    My motive, like all others who once trusted Raygoza, is really to recover the moneys that Raygoza stole from me.

    The weakness and ineffectiveness of consumer protection regulations in the USA continues to appall me.

    It is irritating to discover that everything the Raygoza Gang’s members (JR, Molina, Sipes, etc.) are now doing amounts to legal chicanery, obfuscation, delaying and avoiding responsibilities. It is irritating because the Californian (maybe Federal US) legal system allows so many avenues for crooks to thwart the law. Worse, still, these crooks have been materially aided by complacent credit card institutions and banks – the very life-blood of the various scams.

    2 years ago, the Gang retained its legal squad so as to keep their ill-gotten gains, plundered from trusting clients (like me). Now, some of the same bent lawyers are engaged to keep the crooks from going to jail.

    BTW: who is Burleson and what role did he play in the Gang?
