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.



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?

Where In the World is JP Raygoza???

Could JR be a guest of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in the “twin towers”?

Seems he’s been a bit scarce, but nobody’s answering questions. It’s not like the egotistical little creep to shun the limelight.

After seeing a comment on the Salty Droid’s blog, I decided to do some checking to see if there could be anything interesting in what the comment was alluding to. The link on Salty’s blog was about a call to what was allegedly Raygoza’s  last known address – http://www.localcrimenews.com/lookup.php?jid=5954399 That address is apparently a penthouse apartment, which would fit with the profile picture on Raygoza’s wife’s FB page earlier this week. The reason listed for the call (April 12, 2011) in the link information was “F PC206 Torture” whatever that means.

I was encouraged by that to dig deeper, which  led further than I expected, and ultimately to the question opening this post. No one I asked would confirm for the record that Raygoza was in jail.

Googling the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department I saw the jail there is called the “Twin Towers”. Obvious next question was “how do I find out if someone is incarcerated there?”

Then I noticed a link about sending money to an inmate… meaning I could likely find out if Raygoza was an inmate by trying to send him money there. If JR were in the “Twin Towers” he might be in need of spending money (in joke for Sandy).  I proceeded to try to “send money” to a prisoner named John Paul Raygoza – and yes  – there is a prisoner there named John Paul Raygoza!!

Carrying on, I found I could also see his arrest record, court dates and disposition etc. and (of course) opt to send money! Since I’ve already “donated” enough to his cause I didn’t.

I tried to post links here to the two arrest records which come up on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department site when you search for John Paul Raygoza, but because one must enter “kapchas” at a number of stages, direct links won’t work. If you go here and enter his names in the appropriate boxes, then follow through with kapchas, you’ll get to his (current) arrest records.

The 2nd entry shows he was arrested April 27, 2011, charged with a felony; bail set at $455,000; court date May 9, 2011. That information indicates Raygoza is presently incarcerated there.

Two screen caps showing that info are at: http://www.pushtrafficswindle.com/

Guess there’s little more I can add at this point. It seems the crook who hurt so many of us may be about to eat it, if there’s such a thing as karma. I’m sure new information will be coming to light in the next while – when I get it, I’ll publish it here. What I wouldn’t give to be in the courtroom Monday!!!

EDITED TO ADD: a PDF of the results of a query of Raygoza’s name in the online Los Angeles Superior Court Criminal Index – of Defendants in Criminal Cases (rap sheet) may also be found at http://www.pushtrafficswindle.com. If you don’t know (and want to) what the codes for the charges mean,  just google “California penal code” for a listing.

    Horrible Person, Horrible Scam!

This is so flipping exciting…boy do I wish I could send John Raygoza an email right now and oh….how I would love to see that man in handcuffs. Wouldn’t it be great to be there and be able to look that man in the eye, give him a slight smurk that says…don’t be bending over in the shower JR.
