Former Wyoming Businessman Is Seeking Assistance To Bring Wyoming Mafia To Justice
Justice is coming for many prominent people who once believed themselves to be untouchable. This is now happening at the national level, but the American people won’t rest until corrupt state and local officials are also wearing orange jumpsuits.
Former Wyoming businessman, John Austin alleges that Wyoming officials are engaged in an elaborate racketeering scheme (RICO) and he is seeking a Constitutional Attorney and financial assistance to bring them to justice.
Austin, who is a Certified Nutritionist and Health Journalist is being sued by the Wyoming Attorney General for “publishing” a 500-page Health Encyclopedia and selling natural nutritional supplements, similar to those that can be purchased from any nutrition store.
The Attorney General violated Austin’s First Amendment Freedoms of Speech and of the Press and also his Constitutional Right to do Interstate Business in the state of Wyoming.
Austin says he was targeted by the Wyoming Attorney General without consumer complaints or any kind of harm or injury to Wyoming residents.
Moreover, the Wyoming Supreme Court has set a precedence by ruling that no Wyoming court can adjudicate a claim where there is no injury. Therefore, the Wyoming Attorney General acted under “Color” of Law (unlawfully) when it filed a Complaint against Austin.
It all started when Austin did an online search to find the best state in which to incorporate. Austin found advertising condoned by the Wyoming Attorney General which entices out-of-state businessmen to “incorporate” their businesses in Wyoming, with a promise of no state taxes and a stronger corporate veil than either Delaware or Nevada.
In defending his suit, Austin discovered what he believes to be damning evidence of extortion and racketeering by the Wyoming Attorney General and Judges, which of course is only made possible by “enticing” statutes created by the Wyoming Legislature and signed by the Governor.
Looking back, Austin asked the question, “How does Wyoming stand to benefit financially from enticing thousands of out-of-state companies to incorporate therein? There is only one plausible answer, “to extort money from them after gaining jurisdiction over them.”
One must first understand that is is very difficult for Wyoming to get jurisdiction over out-of-state companies, but it “automatically” has jurisdiction over out-of-state companies incorporated in Wyoming. Are you starting to get the picture?
Therefore, if the Wyoming Attorney General had a large number of out-of-state companies over which it had jurisdiction, it could target them with fraudulent and made up claims, realizing that the disadvantage of living out-of-state and having to hire a Wyoming attorney and also make costly trips to attend a Wyoming court, would cause most out-of-state business owners to cave into said extortion and accept a settlement offer as opposed to fighting it, which could easily cost $500,000 or more, with no guarantee to win.
Such a scheme would allow those perpetrating such a fraud to enrich themselves to the tune of millions of dollars, without Wyoming citizens being the wiser and settlement offers naturally include non only the extortion money, but also a non-disclosure agreement and a promise not to sue.
The Attorney General admitted in its communication with Austin that it has targeted over 200 such companies in the past six years.
That equates to a “new” company being sued every ten-days! If each of those companies settled out of court for $500,000.00 (that’s what they are demanding from Austin), that would be $1,500,000.00 per month. So, who is getting all of that money? You can be sure the taxpayers are not benefiting.
Since it is impossible to believe that more than 200 companies have openly cheated and harmed their customers such a short period of time, we must therefore believe that most of these cases were based upon extortion, like what the Attorney General did to Austin.
Austin’s case is a good example. After suing Austin for approximately $1,500,000.00, the Attorney General made a settlement offer of $500,000. Since attorney fees alone could exceed $500,000.00, taking the settlement offer would be the obvious choice for most businessmen, since losing would not only cost you attorney fees, you would still have to pay the penalties, plus the court costs. Do you see why it is so easy for the “Wyoming Mafia” to get away with this?
In response to the $500,000 settlement offer, Austin’s Attorney asked the Attorney General:
“Has your office taken any cases to trial under the consumer protection act? If so, are there any judgments where the trial court imposed civil penalties under the act? I would like to see those judgments, so as to compare against your settlement offer.”
The Attorney General purposely did not answer this question directly. He tried to avoided the question, perhaps because a truthful answer would tend to expose their extortion scheme. Here was his answer:
“Given the robust civil penalties available to the State under the Consumer Protection Act… other defendants have elected to resolve cases through… settlements rather than take cases to trial. But if your clients wish to take this case to trial, we stand ready to litigate the case to a substantial civil penalty award that dwarfs the $500,000 settlement demand… and the cost [of the state to prosecute].”
Austin’s Attorney asks a second time:
“Please, just tell me. Are there any Wyoming consumer cases prosecuted by your office that went to trial, and resulted in a trial judge awarding civil penalties?”
The Attorney General then replied:
“The answer is no.”
Elaborate Extortion Scheme:
It is obvious that Wyoming is enticing out-of-state companies to incorporate for the purpose of extorting money from them. Austin says he knew the charges against him were not only fraudulent, but were also egregious even if he had done something wrong and this is what caused him to start investigating the idea that the Wyoming Attorney General and Judiciary are indeed running an extortion scheme.
Once a company is established, Wyoming Courts automatically have jurisdiction over it, which opens the door for the Attorney General to bring fraudulent charges with such “robust penalties” that every company owner targeted in the past six years (with the exception of Austin) chose to pay the extortion fee, as opposed to fighting the fraudulent charges in a corrupt Wyoming court.
Warning: The “strong” corporate veil did not protect Mr. Austin, nor 200 other businessmen which the Attorney General has sued. If you have a Wyoming company, but do not live in Wyoming, you may want to consider incorporating elsewhere.
Note: Austin sent a letter to President Trump and to the Wyoming Governor exposing this Wyoming Mafia. So far, nothing has been done about draining the Wyoming Swamp. President Trump has bigger fish to fry, but the Governor of Wyoming is obviously complicit, or he would have done something by now. This could be a message for Wyoming voters.
Finally, Austin asks for your help to expose this corruption far and wide. Forward this link in an email and also post it to your social media. Austin says that so far, two people who have seen this have already contacted him and thanked him. One was an out of state businessman who had a Wyoming Corporation, but has since closed it. The other was strongly considering a Wyoming Corporation.
Please help if you can: Mr. Austin is the first one to stand up against this injustice. He has been fighting for over two years and has reached a point where he needs your financial assistance. If you can make a donation small or large, please visit his GoFundMe.com Page to donate.
