Part 2: Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand & His Attorney Daniel (Dan) Warner of Kelly Warner: A Timeline of Crime
If you’ve ever had anything of significance stolen from you, you’ll recognize there’s a sense of confusion, disbelief, and then outrage. Followed by the need to hold the person(s) responsible accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
That is, if you’re ever lucky enough to know who stole from you. In my case, I was alerted via an email from GoDaddy in January 2017 that my domain & entire content of my website, including intellectual property was being transferred to Russell (Russ) Ruffino. Within minutes of receiving the email I contacted my Arizona attorneys at Jackson White. I knew who Ruffino was, I’d previously written about his fraudulent use of national media logos in his Clients on Demand marketing collateral, but what I couldn’t immediately reconcile is how this happened.
Russell (Russ) Ruffino & his Arizona attorney Daniel R. Warner of Kelly Warner Law Firm, who is currently the subject of Arizona Bar proceedings in unrelated matters, have pathologically abused legal process to prevent the truth about their unethical & illegal behavior from being publicly exposed by taking away my First Amendment rights for over a year.
January 2014: Killing My Career was started by myself, Melayna Lokosky, while under-seal as a federal whistleblower. The goal was to expose fraud via The Sociopathic Business Model™ to help employees, consumers, patients & taxpayers easily identify & expose patterns of fraud while taking steps to hold those committing fraud accountable.
March 2014: Meeting with The United States Department of Justice (DOJ), where I was asked to take down my website, as they felt it broke “the spirit of the seal.” I was writing about my case against Johnson & Johnson’s Acclarent, where I was legally not allowed to publicly disclose that I was in fact the sole whistleblower in the case. I refused the DOJ request citing the First Amendment.
I was then asked by DOJ’s Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Bloom and my FBI handler, Paul, to broaden the scope beyond Johnson & Johnson & the medical device industry: “Melayna, there are a lot of companies out there committing fraud, write about any of those.” It was the first time in U.S. history that a federally recognized whistleblower was writing about their case in real time, using their real name. This was not done out of arrogance or petulance, it was done in hopes of initially helping victims from the medical device industry; and, organically at the request of DOJ, exposed patterns in fraud across all industries. The products changed but the patterns in fraud were consistent and predictable. If we can predict fraud, we can prevent fraud.
Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand
May 2014 I joined Twitter. Sometime after, I saw an ad from online marketing coach Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand making claims that were #RedFlag warnings under The Sociopathic Business Model™.
I asked Ruffino to back his claims about using national media logos on his marketing collateral found on his own website and on Twitter.
May 21, 2015 I wrote Twitter Ad King Russell Ruffino and The Sociopathic Business Model™
Updated to include an INC. article that was listed as an advertisement but readers confused as an article: ” I read his article in INC magazine last week and that was the first I’ve ever heard of him.”
My attorney Nate Hill of Jackson White questioning Ruffino under oath regarding INC native advertising:
Hill: So it it true that it (the INC article), in fact, appeared to be an advertisement?
Ruffino: It appears to be.
May 2105-December 22, 2015 Ruffino portrayed himself as being recognized by national media outlets The New York Times, Forbes, CNN, Fox, NBC, or The Wall Street Journal.
Nate Hill questioning Russell Ruffino under oath about the logos:
Hill: Okay. And were you not seen in all those networks, were you?
Ruffino: We had been seen in CNN, Fox, NBC & Market Watch, which is owned by The Wall Street Journal. We had not been seen in The New York Times and we had not been seen in Forbes…
Hill: Okay. And at the top left corner of that box where that image appears, what does it say?
Ruffino: It say not verified by CNN.
Hill: Okay. So nowhere …does it where you actually appeared, correct?
Ruffino: No it doesn’t distinguish between the network and NBC website.
Ruffino: What difference does it make?
Hill: I think it might make a difference to people who see this.
December 22, 2015 Russell (Russ) Ruffino of Clients on Demand via Daniel (Dan) R. Warner of Kelly / Warner filed a complaint and application for injuncitive relief claiming: Unfair competition under the Lanham Act, Defamation, False Light Invasion of Privacy, Tortious Interference with Current & Prospective Business Relationships, Aiding and Abetting, and Conspiracy.
My attorney Nate Hill of Jackson White questioning Ruffino under oath:
Hill: You Said earlier that Ms. Lokosky called you a sociopath. Where to your recollection, did she call you a sociopath?
Ruffino: In almost ever Tweet she puts out, she’s hashtagged The Sociopathic Business Model
Hill: So, it’s the hashtag Sociopathic Business Model from which you’re drawing the claim she calling you a sociopath?
Hill: So, you’re saying that’s there’s not somewhere other than the hashtag where you were called a sociopath?
There are three major problems with the complaint:
- Negative truthful information is NOT defamation
- I am NOT competition to Russell (Russ) Ruffino or Clients on Demand. I write about & expose fraud, he IS a fraud.
- I was NEVER served in this lawsuit & wasn’t made aware of it UNTIL January 12, 2017.
Maybe it’s just me, but if I were suing someone for defamation, I would want that publicly know. Why would Daniel Warner advise his client otherwise?
Part 3: There are patterns in pathologically abusive behavior that will continue to escalate into illegal activity
