Of course two of these three items are nothing new. We saw them on the 2008 Searching for Bigfoot Business Plan, that Rick Dyer had gotten from Biscardi during the 2008 hoax. It wasn’t until August, 2008 before the rubber suit came into their possession.

Introduction

Here comes a long one folks…

There are times that make me shake my head. As with all things in life there are folks out there that lie through their teeth, to deceive and obtain funds from folks. One such person is an self proclaimed East Texas Sasquatch researcher by the name of Robert “Bob” Garrett, who often calls himself, “The Hermit.” The man eventually became the leader of a for profit LLC, called the The Texas Big Thicket Watch Guide Service.

 

Capture

Bob “The Hermit” Garrett

Many came to know Garrett from the controversial podcast, “The Sasquatch Chronicles.” Which for a long time catered to the notion that Sasquatch is a violent creature with a disdain for his less hairy primate relatives, us.

Garrett started off appearing to be a legitimate, caring researcher, never espousing a violent nature of the creatures, but I believe, in my opinion, seeing the early success of the “Sasquatch Chronicles,” hitched his wagon to the malevolent side of Sasquatch, and began to tell tales on the podcast of the mean streak of the hairy hominid creatures.

The Sasquatch Chronicles, itself was not shy of controversy as it was born out of the show hosts’ encounter. Wes and Woody had alleged an encounter in which they claim they were surrounded by a group of Sasquatch, where some of the environmental surroundings claimed on the encounter, did not seem to mesh up with the actual weather data collected at the time.

They asked for the intervention of the Washington Sasquatch Research Team (WASRT), which responded to the scene the next day, but they failed to find any corroborative evidence to their claims.

…Wes said on the show that he’d contacted WASRT—perhaps hoping for great validity. So WASRT’s report was revealed (no moon, no evidence) and then Wes curiously insisted that he’d merely called them (even though their website had no phone number) and certainly had never emailed them. Upon hearing this, WASRT promptly disclosed that at least 26 emails existed between Wes and the team.

A full account of that can be read here in the DailyBeast.com

As far as Garrett’s tales of violence inside the Big Thicket of east Texas, Researcher Julie Rench, having relatives in the area decided to reach out on her own to corroborate Garrett’s claims with Texas Wildlife and Law Enforcement Officials.

“…Mrs.  Rench, we have not found anyone dead in the big thicket. We have no reports of such story. This does not match any deaths that we in Hardin County have had. If you get more information on this let us know…

…Not aware of this story you are asking about. We did have two people missing near Chester who were later found deceased in 2012-2013. This investigation was conducted by Tyler County Sheriff’s Office. They were residents of Polk County.

…I sent an email to Sasquatch Chronicles on February 1st and advised them that I had been in contact with some of the Law Enforcement in Texas and I could not verify the story that two people were killed and asked if they had checked into it as well.  I did not receive a response.  Shortly after the email I was removed and blocked from the Sasquatch Chronicles Facebook group.”

The phone call

In December I had received a call from a couple of concerned members of the Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center (MABRC) that a friend of theirs had been taken for $1000.00 on one of Garrett’s expeditions that had been cancelled. They set up a phone call with the young lady from Missouri.

Email wr (Web)

The victim, receiving instructions from Garrett’s daughter.

paypal receipt (web)

In February of 2016 she had paid for an expedition with the Texas Big Thicket Watch Guide Service, payable to one Robert Garrett, in the amount of $1000.00. Only to be told later that the expedition had been cancelled because they had been shut down by the federal government. When she spoke with Garrett she had asked about getting her money back, but Garrett said he was broke because he had to pay huge fines. If he gave her some time he would pay her back. He eventually stopped answering her calls.

First, I had to research Garrett’s claims and second, see if he would be willing to pay the victim back.

Garrett had made claims of Federal harassment because of the “murders” he uncovered of the Sasquatch, including a ripped up campsite he allegedly came across with his son Travis.

“I have reviewed the videos and I still do not see anything that can not be attributed to human activity. In my younger days I went to many bush parties and witnessed things far worse than this. I have seen "tore up" woods and it was due to drunken idiots hacking down trees or from people intentionally running in to trees with their trucks. People due stupid things while under the influence of alcohol.

I have been on bike runs and plenty of poker runs that involved over night stays in campgrounds. I have seen what sauced up, half-in-the-pail adults will do. I have seen torn up camps and the camp in this video pales in comparison.”

                                                            – Rand Filipovic March 24th, 2015

                                                          Bigfoot Anarchy Blog

 

An analysis of that was done by researcher Steve Alcorn and Randy Filipovic and can be found here on Bigfoot Anarchy.

I had to be sure Garrett was telling the truth about being shut down by the Feds. It was…just not for the reasons he claimed. We all know about running paid expeditions on Federal lands. In case you don’t; You need permits. Something Garrett wasn’t apparently willing to do, or unable to do.

 

An investigation full of surprises

First and foremost I wanted to ascertain the validity he was shut down by the government. The answer to that was no. He just wasn’t able to go to the National Park anymore. Last I knew the NP wasn’t the only game in town in East Texas for Bigfoot research, as I have been there in the past on expeditions and never hit that NP once. So he was not “shut down,” just at that location. His acumen as a Bigfoot researcher really shows poorly, for if he as good as he claims, he could have moved onto another active area (as Texas is full of them) and at least had some modest results.

This led me to looking at the profiles of Bob Garrett, Tim Sermons and Mo Michaux who were the three involved in organizing the Big Thicket expeditions.

Nothing on Garrett or Sermons on social media. Sermons was not active at all, and Garrett was very active, but just not about Sasquatch for some time. However in looking at The Big Thicket Watch Guide Service Facebook profile, I noticed  comments by Mo Michaux.

 

Big Thicket FB

Capture II FB

 

Intrigued I contacted Michaux and got a plethora of information.  So lets go over the basics.

1. The Texas Big Thicket Watch Guide Service conducted 3 expeditions between February 2016 and April 2016.

2. In February 16th they were confronted by the NPS. The NPS warned them and told them they had to leave within 24 hours.

This was confirmed by a participant I contacted,

FEDs showed up and informed us that BG didn’t have a permit and we all need to be out of there within 24 hours.

3. The Texas Big Thicket Watch Guide Service was not shut down because of any government conspiracy covering up murders in the park as claimed by Garrett, but because he was consistently told he did not have a permit to do what he was doing. He ignored the first warning and got shut down and fined. But just in the park.

4. The first expedition Garrett proceeded to play an audio recording and spin a yarn at the “real reason” why they were being thrown out. Because a Sasquatch had torn up a camp and after the night video they had shot, he and his son had found a woman twisted, but alive, in a tree with a Sasquatch guarding it, in which Garrett had gotten an audio of it growling at them. He then proceeded to play the audio for the expeditioners.

Again confirmed with the participant,

“We were then informed by either Mo or Tim that Bob was pissed-off about the FED’s harassing him and was going to tell us the whole story about the Torn Up Camp Ground. BG presented the whole story which I conveyed to you. He then played the.…vocals for the first time.”

5. It was also confirmed to me by Sasquatch Chronicles host Wes Germer that the recording indeed was Garrett’s.

6. Germer originally blew off Michaux’s revelation that Garrett was hoaxing, by stating the two recordings sounded similar but weren’t the same in his opinion. He did try to say that to me as well but I told him, in no uncertain terms the recordings were the same and provided him the waveforms which proved such.

Here’s our analysis of the audio which is concrete evidence of Garrett hoaxing,

yt cap

 

The original sound came from a YouTube video which contained Gorilla Sound effects.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1ViN9Q8iao

CaptureII

It was very clear from the wave form analysis that this was the same audio file. The waveform on the alleged “Bigfoot” was not as loud indicating it was recorded from perhaps a speaker, and had noise in it, with a fan or electronic noise in the background creating the “fuzziness” on the waveform.

 

Waveform Analysis

The top stereo track is from the Gorilla effects video and the bottom Mono track is Garrett’s alleged audio of a Sasquatch.

When the two recordings were lined up the perfectly matched in timing and spacial distance. When played together they are clearly the same recording.

Another interesting fact, was that in speaking with Michaux, he stated they never set an LLC up. I had asked that because I had seen that in some of the NDA’s and Waiver forms sent to the victim.

I found out indeed that an LLC was set up electronically by someone without Michaux’s knowledge, despite listing him as a managing member.

Texas DOS

Back to the Money Trail

April 2016 –

“BG gathered everyone together and stated that if the FED’s showed-up and asked if we paid to be on the expedition that we were to say NO. Ten minutes later the FEDS pulled up and stated BG did not have a permit and began to questioned us separately & in groups for approximately 2 hours. While the FEDs where speaking to some of the participants at the other end of the camp, Bob sat down with a few of us and stated that he would be refunding everyone’s money.”

This is again another quote from the participant that went to all of Bob’s expeditions. She ended up having to reverse the charge on her credit card.

Another person I spoke with is from Canada, and she too never had gotten her money back as well from Garrett. To pacify the crowd Garrett had given Michaux the recording to play for everyone which is how the recording ended up in his hands. He in turn shared it with the one of the participants who discovered the Gorilla clip.

The Canadian witness was appalled.

 “For someone you don’t even know to ask people that he doesn’t know to lie…he didn’t even blink an eye.”

Not only was she out the $500, but she was out the money  for the car rental, flights, hotel etc., because Garrett did not obtain a permit. Something he was warned about on his very first expedition.

She wrote the Big Thicket email, but never received a response.

After the last incident with the NPS, he was barred, so the remaining expeditions were cancelled, (not rescheduled elsewhere)

 

The Confrontation

On March 20th, 2017 I had an 18 minute conversation with Bob Garrett after contacting Wes Germer. I had tried for a  week via Facebook messenger and for that day on YouTube mail to contact Garrett with no response, which seems to be a common denominator with him.

 

message1

 

To make a long story short, Garrett stated he had no money and ha to pay $6000 in fines. He blamed Michaux, stating he gave him the money to pay people back. When asked about a list of paid participants for the June expedition he said Michaux had it and that he never had one.

“Well if people were paying you, how did Mo know who to pay?”

The conversation went south from there and he raised his voice to me, first questioning why I am involved. My answer was, because one of the people you owe money to asked me.

He stated he doesn’t do the Facebook thing as the reason why he didn’t answer me. But didn’t know what to say when I gave him the exact amount of posts he put on Facebook since my message.

That aggravated him even more. Caught in his own lie.

In fairness, I reached out to Wes Germer afterwards and told him point blank what I thought of Garrett, showed him the evidence and that he is refusing to pay anyone back on the claims that he has no money. Funny thing is Wes knew the real fine, but I had informed him of EXACTLY what Garrett had said. His fine was $6000 Wes stated he had felt horrible people had lost money to this because of his show.

Michaux upon hearing what Garrett had said confronted Garrett and stated I, yes me, had lied and that Tim Sermons had been given the money to pay people back. At that point I needed no verification or authentication that Garrett was a liar and had no intention whatsoever paying people back.

In actuality the fines were slightly less $6000, but it was to be divided by the three men involved, costing each around $1400.

And the kicker…it could be paid in installments.

The Case of the Missing FLIR

A friend known to many Sasquatch researcher by the pseudonym Maximus Decimus Meridius was the property master of a FLIR project where they built FLIR devices much like trap cameras. He provided Tim Sermons with three of them and researcher Chris Noel mailed them one. Long story short they all turned up into the hands of Bob Garrett and only 3 were returned, after first reporting the mailed one never got to him and another was stolen in the woods.

FLIRS returned

The FLIRs returned in a horrible state.

 

Three of the cameras were returned with $5000 in damage according to Max. According to Michaux, Garrett made the claim they were “given” to him and that wording was used once to “Max.” Michaux also claims that Garrett still has one in proper working order. Michaux also stated that Garrett stated his intention of keeping one stating he will tell them one was stolen. Again these claims are of a he said she said type of thing, but the corroboration of the act of being “given” them versus lent them, was both in the narratives of Michaux and Max.

 

Thoughts and lessons

First let me give you my thoughts on the Sasquatch Chronicles. Do I think badly of Wes Germer. Well the show’s premise is based on an alleged event, that has been disputed, mainly the evidence of weather. Was Wes caught in a lie when he stated he did not email WASRT. It appears so.

Wes had told me that night of the confrontation that, he told Garrett that I wanted to talk to him and that’s all. He said he was going to call him right away but it took a while for Garrett to get back to me via a text message.

 

BG Text

Text from Garrett before the phone call. The name is KULLS by the way!

So does it look like Germer had just told Garrett I wanted to talk to him? It would appear much of my conversation with him went to Garrett thus preparing him for what was coming.

In 2005 Coast to Coast with George Nhouri had Tom Biscardi on, where Biscardi claimed he had a captured Sasquatch in Stagecoach, Nevada. Biscardi at the time had a webcam feed subscription and had promised he would get the cams on the captured Sasquatch. Of course the story turned out to be false.

What did George Nhouri do? He banned Biscardi and demanded that all the extra web cam subscriptions since the night of the announcement were refunded.

That is what a responsible journalist does. It’s not Germer’s fault directly that people had gotten taken money. It is a show host to entertain, and yes sometimes people get on shows that are full of shit, but most of the time we are not in a position to immediately investigate their claims. That is entertainment. However as a journalist, and I have does this countless times, if something doesn’t sound right, I question it. If something like this happened on my show, you are damned straight, there are announcements about the validity of the previous guest. If one story is a lie, then guess what? The rest of them true or not are worth a pile of crap.

Germer stated he felt bad about what had happened, and I would like to truly believe him. And if he is truly the man he claims to be then he will do in kind what George Nhouri had done on Coast to Coast some 12 years ago. He will not see this as an attack but as a reflection of perception and reality.

He has known this for a week now…and not a peep as far as I can tell. As to his encounter with his brother, I cannot state any opinion, only report the facts as told by others. I did not investigate it, I was not there end of story. But the first thing I always check is the weather data to help prove some corroboration. That was not there.  I will let the audience be the jury.

I hold no ill will because he provides a service for the money he gets. A form of entertainment. How real is it? Again that’s the audience’s decision. I can only report what I can prove and give you my opinion when I clearly state it is my opinion.

On Tim Sermons, I cannot speak wholly for the FLIR deal, but it seems like he was pressured to do Garrett’s bidding, again an opinion. Not being able to speak to the man, I withhold judgment.

On Mo Michaux, I can only state that when he smelled something rotten, the oblivious hoax by Garrett, at least one he could prove, did his due diligence and he tried to warn Germer, tried to give Garrett time to come clean, and when it didn’t happen he bailed, and was attacked for doing such by Garrett’s friends.

Sometimes, as we have seen in other cases, you need a slap across the face to see the truth around you. And when Michaux opened his eyes he did what he could. When he crossed paths with me, he gave me everything I asked for and more, feeling his name was tarnished with his association with Garrett.

Now on to Garrett. In my opinion of him, well here’s a guy that lies and lies about those lies. He’s easy to catch in them if you listen carefully. But he likes manipulation, and will call someone with truth on their side a liar, we’ve given ample and concrete evidence of a hoax and a man who clearly received $1000 from at least one person, and didn’t bother to even pay them back. It’s his name on that PayPal receipt, not anyone else’s. It’s his responsibility to pay them back.

15025305_1111715442258356_2023487667573966955_o

We know though he never had any intention of paying anyone back for 3 day expeditions that last a day or hours, or one that didn’t even kick off.

That is why Mr. Garrett has earned himself a spot in the Squatchdetective Hall of Shame.

Bob Garrett in his final sentence to stated he wished he never heard of me. Well I take that as a compliment coming from him.

But I dare assume there is at least a few people out of money that wish they never heard of Bob Garrett.

“The Anti-Hermit”

Fifty Large to $221.00?

What I took as a scathing article appeared on People.com regarding Tom Biscardi’s public venture, “Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. (BFII), Stock Ticker BGFT listed on NASDAQ, which referenced a CNBC article, but more on that in a minute.

A Quick Recap…

As mentioned in an earlier blog, Bigfoot Project Investments is the parent company of “Searching for Bigfoot,” where allegedly the so called “Godfather” of Bigfoot, (ahem) is making his farewell tour and is allegedly turning the reins over to his son TJ. What I suspect and will make this prediction, is that the elder Biscardi at the very least will still remain in charge of Bigfoot Project Investments as its CEO, thus still being in charge of SFBI’s parent company.

According to the latest SEC filing, this appears to be the case,

“As of July 25, 2016, Carmine T. Biscardi, owns 58.92% of the outstanding common stock. As a result, Mr. Biscardi currently possesses and will continue to retain significant influence over our affairs.”

Source: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1569568/000107878216003202/s1080516_s1.htm

Much of my material on SFBI and it’s leader, De Facto or not can be read here

The Big “Whoops”

Sometimes being a publicly traded company can open up some eyes to the actual reality versus the “preached” reality of a business. In this case the parent company of SFBI.

The article contended that somehow, BFII had a market capitalization of $10 Billion.

“Market capitalization refers the total dollar market value of a company’s outstanding shares. Commonly referred to as "market cap," it is calculated by multiplying a company’s shares outstanding by the current market price of one share. The investment community uses this figure to determine a company’s size, as opposed to using sales or total asset figures…

Large-cap companies typically have a market capitalization of $10 billion or more. These large companies have usually been around for a long time, and they are major players in well-established industries.”

Source: Market Capitalization Definition | Investopedia

According to CNBC.com,

“In its filings with the SEC, Bigfoot says its stock became eligible for trading on June 28, 2016, on the OTC Bulletin Board, but as of July 29 the stock had not yet begun trading. Still, this week FactSet listed a current share price of $50.01 for BGFT. That, multiplied by the number of shares outstanding (more than 200 million) gives the $10 billion figure for market capitalization.

It’s not clear where the $50.01 stock price came from.

What is clear is the tale of BGFT highlights the strange distortion effects that can happen in the pink sheets netherworld, a mysterious place where the metrics investors use to value companies such as market capitalization can lose all meaning in a haze of accounting fiction.

Market capitalization is a fine way to measure big, widely traded companies. But for a firm like Bigfoot, it doesn’t make any sense at all. A $10 billion valuation puts Bigfoot on a par with Xerox, Discovery Communications and Gap — well-known companies with massive assets and popular products.

(BFII), by contrast, lists current assets of $221 in cash along with 73 original casts of Bigfoot footprints, a 109-inch skeleton and a rubber suit from a 2008 Bigfoot hoax.”

Source: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/08/17/the-mystery-of-how-a-company-set-up-to-search-for-bigfoot-hit-a-10-billion-value.html

It is nice to know that I have more cash on hand than BFII. But in reality and what the other two news organizations failed to realize is that the $221 was a 2015 figure not the 2016 figure which lists cash assets as 19K on hand and a 2K money market account.

SEC2

But where did that money come from? Was it from revenue? No. It likely seems it came from a $81K from an advance from Shareholders.

“In the year ending July 31, 2015, shareholders advanced additional funds in the amount of $22,633. In the nine-month period ending April 30, 2016, shareholders advanced additional funds in the amount of $ 21,626. The balances of Advances from shareholders were $81,341 and $59,715 as of April 30, 2016 and July 31, 2015.”

SEC4

SEC3

This brings us again to the problem of at the time SFBI’s own self inflated, self worth, estimated by as the 2008 business plan stated, “by none other that Tom Biscardi himself, the world’s leading authority on Bigfoot.”

5212962_orig

Not to mention the fact that in 2006, SFBI had posted they never disturbed the skeleton, taking only a few artifacts from the grave site, after receiving a backlash from the Bigfoot community, discussing the legality over disturbing a gravesite let alone removing it without government permission.

Here is that statement direct from the SFBI website at the time:

2506979_orig

 

So where is the lie? If anyone has seen the original “Bigfoot Lives,” they most certainly are not just observing it, as we see TJ Biscardi in the gravesite brushing dirt. 

Biscardi stated he did not believe the the 10 Billion dollar evaluation stating, “Someone doesn’t have their facts right.” The SEC filing would agree with that statement.

2008: 17 Million / 2015: 27K

The real value of BFII is clearly seen on the balance sheet provided by an audit firm, also can be found from the sourced SEC filed document listed above. A far cry from the self appointed 17 million dollars it tried to portray to investors.

SEC1

Caveat Emptor

A big caveat emptor for their stocks is also another quip from the CNBC article:

“…it (BFII) is what’s known on Wall Street as a "pink sheets" firm. That means it is an over-the-counter stock traded in the OTC’s least-regulated and least-scrutinized market. On its website, OTC Markets describes the pink sheets market as home to penny stocks, shell corporations and "distressed, delinquent, and dark companies" that are not able or willing to provide adequate information to investors.”

Source: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/08/17/the-mystery-of-how-a-company-set-up-to-search-for-bigfoot-hit-a-10-billion-value.html

 

The People.com article was even less flattering:

“Biscardi’s company (stock ticker: BGFT) was registered in 2013 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It’s currently what’s known as a "pink sheets firm," which means it’s in the same category as penny stocks, shell corporations and other less-than-savory investments…The valuation quickly disappeared under scrutiny, as OTC Markets made a "courtesy call" to its data vendor after CNBC called them.”

Source: http://www.people.com/article/tom-biscardi-bigfoot-hunting-company-valued-10-billion

According to Investopedia, “”Pink Sheet” stocks are to be bought with caution.

“Investors should be aware of four cautions. First, most OTC stocks do not meet the minimum requirements for most exchanges and do not file with the SEC. Therefore, credible and reliable fundamental data are not available for analysis. Second, historically Pink Sheets stocks are penny stocks and are often near-insolvent companies. Third, some stocks are illegitimate shell companies set up to scam investors by issuing press releases, and having “analysts” promote the stock and issue more worthless shares. Fourth, Pink Sheets only has one requirement for a company to list – a company needs to have one market maker (broker) quoting its stock. The listing companies do not have to provide any financial information at all.

One common scam involving OTC investors is the pump and dump scheme where promoters buy penny stocks, promote and push up the prices for other investors and then dump their stocks while the late investors are stuck with worthless stock that they overpaid to own. These stocks are often promoted in spam emails or on message boards and blogs.”

Definition of Irony

I understand Mr. Biscardi had a show on his weekly program, Bigfoot Live Radio, that featured a segment on Rick Dyer yesterday by interviewing former Bigfoot Tracker Veep, BJ Brashears.

I figured since I’ve been the

Well needless to say there were audio issues with the program so I never got to hear it.

Tonight I was looking around for the archive version finding humor in this whole thought of Biscardi putting the digs into Dyer, when I discovered that The SFBI Facebook page had a link to a Bigfoot “Hall of Fame.”

Ironic

Left the day after Biscardi had a Radio show outing Dyer.

Maybe Tom was flattered that his picture was prominently displayed amongst others like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Derek Randles and Loren Coleman, all great folks in my opinion. But I also noticed Rick Dyer was there. And Todd Standing.

I also noticed it was a Wix page.

So my curiosity went up and ran the Whois on the page on the site.

Guess who owns it???

 

Guess Who

Dyer’s Personal information has been censored.

Now that’s my definition of irony!!!!

 


Squatch-D Radio Back!!!!

Chris Bennett and I are so glad to be back on the airwaves at Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network. Visit our other sister shows there as well!!!

Our guest lineup is filling fast and we are booked until June. More guest announcements this week.

We’re also excited to be doing an “Out of the Box” show every third Sunday of the month, featuring a guest on topics other than our hairy friends.


Upcoming stuff…

Tomorrow night I will be going on the Giant’s Bigfoot Radio program for an hour long discussion on Sasquatch and who knows what other topics may come up.

Next Friday I will be on Scarefest Radio, talking about last years Scarefest 8 and this years Scarefest 9, where they’ve already announced one of my favorite actors, Malcolm McDowell, will be appearing.

Of course, on May 6th, 7th and 8th,  I am excited and super stoked to be a participant in the 2016 Pennsylvania Bigfoot Camping Adventure.

They’ll be a screening of The Beast of Whitehall and special guest from Mountain Monsters, John “Trapper” Tice. (Yes we know folks, its television so chillax. Be fun to meet the guy and have a few laughs). Even Squatch-D can let his hair down once in a while… (okay I know…what hair!)

This year seems a bit strange to me. For the first time in several years nothing major was going on. No Ketchum Project, No Sierra Shooting style news, the Sykes project is pretty much finished. Kind of sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the “next big thing.”

Nonetheless the field team and I did stretch our legs a bit this year however, although nothing at all to report we had a wonderful time and getting out there with one of our Western NY folks Mike!

We have gotten a trickle of sightings reports coming in, and we are actively investigating this long term situation. We visited the property and are extremely excited at the prospect of obtaining some evidence.

 


Air time!!!

Radio2

We are now looking for guests for Squatchdetective Radio as we go to a whole new user friendly format.

We will no longer be a live format show, unfortunately because of schedules and finding a network host that could work for us. We just couldn’t make a live show work since our hiatus, so we’ve gone to this more polished format.

We may however once a month or so do a Google Hangout Free for all… Be kind of cool to see who just may show up!

Chris Bennett and I look forward to getting on with getting on!! If anyone is interested on being a guest, just drop me a line at radio@squatchdetective.com.


Legal Beagle… On to the BS D’jour!

On Thursday, May 14th, 2015 I received a “nasty-gram” in my email from Biscardi attorney and Biscardi business partner, Dennis Kazubowski.

It started with this wonderful quip…

“On March 25, 2008, you signed a Limited Association Agreement with Searching for Bigfoot Inc. which is attached to this letter. According to the document you signed, you agreed to hold in confidence any information gathered and further agreed not to disclose or reveal to any person or entity any information discovered under the agreement without the express prior written consent of the other parties.”

                              -Letter to Steve Kulls from Biscardi attorney, Dennis Kazubowski 5/14/15

 

Well I did sign a Limited Association Agreement for a single expedition on March 25, 2008 which would serve as my last outing as a contractor with Biscardi.

I find it a bit odd that an attorney would list this as the first salvo in an attempt to have me remove my Blog and Hall of Shame pages on Biscardi and his activities.

Because this is what the confidentiality agreement ACTUALLY said…

“The parties to this agreement agree to HOLD IN CONFIDENCE any information gathered from this expedition and further not to disclose or reveal any person or entity or any information disclosed under this agreement…”

 

He kind of left out the whole, from this expedition,” part. Since I revealed nothing about my last expedition with SFBI part on my Website or Blog… that’s out.

The confidentiality clause was part of a LIMITED agreement, clearly defined and stated within the agreement.

As far as the Hall of Shame Page, my book “Fifty Large,” both California, and New York have a ONE year statute of limitation on defamation claims. Nevada, the State in which Biscardi’s enterprises have filed there incorporations has a two year statute. Since the Hall of Shame Page came out in 2010 and Fifty Large in 2011, they’re out as fair game for any consideration for defamation.

As far as libel, defamation, what have I said that was not backed up by fact?

That Biscardi was involved in the 2008 hoax? The other two hoaxers implicated him.

It was his words and actions and statements (everyone remember “touched it, felt it, smelled it, on Fox News?”) put his responsibility in question.

Why didn’t he sue Dyer and Whitton? In “Not Typical Bigfoot Movie,” Biscardi stated he would sue anyone that would hoax him?

Another element in a defamation case is a falsity with malice or malicious intent.  The latest blog I had posted simple facts and what a cited source had told me.

Biscardi claiming to see a video of your truly riding ATV’s with two hoaxers, as proof I had set him up, when no such video exists because it never happened; THAT is defamation.

Reporting facts, citing sourced information and analysis of such facts is NOT defamation or libel.

Editorial license, is also not defamation nor libel when there is evidence and actions to bring up reasonable questioning. Even parody when it pertains to public figures, (which Biscardi is rest assuredly) as long it does not blur the lines of truth.

It is a fact that Biscardi set up a foreign company with a man under indictment who subsequently plead guilty, for a Ponzi Scheme,who was the former CFO for Searching for Bigfoot.

David A. Nilsen (Source: Monterey County Weekly.com)

In fact the Monterey County Weekly called Nilsen, “Monterey’s Madoff.” In reference to convicted Ponzi schemer, Bernie Madoff.

Nilsen was indicted on September 8th, 2009 and the indictment was unsealed on September 10th, 2009 after he had surrendered to authorities in San Jose. Nilsen subsequently pled guilty in a plea bargain in Oct. 24th, 2011 and received a sentence of 97 months, in 2012. (Source: FBI.gov)

Very clear from the Nevada Department of State, this Foreign Corporation headed by Nilsen and Biscardi, was clearly after Nilsen’s indictment (June 8th, 2010). It’s status was revoked, however I am unclear of the reasoning behind the revocation, and it could have been something as simple as a missed filing.

My personal opinion of Biscardi, is irrelevant, I do not go on this blog, my sites or other Podcasts and speak untruth without the evidence to back such up about anyone.

And I am not bullied so easily, especially when I lined my ducks up carefully. That’s my profession. My suggestion; “Don’t poke this bear.”


On the road again…
