Posted at MacNN:

www.go-l.com is registered to the same LISA CIESNIEWSKI as is the Liebermann corporate filing, however it is at a PO Box in Marina del Rey, very close to the Sepulveda adddress.

It is strange that for a presumed up and coming technology corporation that both the corporate filing and the website would be directed to the same individual. Usually an attorney would undertake the corporate work and a technology person would be the contact for the website.

When I did a Google search on LISA CIESNIEWSKI it came up with an interesting link: http://www.socalequine.com/atraining/los_angeles.htm

Turns out Lisa is a HORSE TRAINER! Same Lisa, same Marina del Rey phone number as listed on the www.go-l.com web registration. Busy gal, training horses, registering technology websites, doing corporate filings.


Somebody claims to have seen a 3 panel monitor from them though. I'll try to find a link.

They DID actually ship a few machines, but probably less than 10% of all the orders, before they took the money and ran.

The ironic part is that the other scam site had way less spelling mistakes than this one does, and didn't directly steal the pictures and site design from other companies.
This is the site I was thinking of:

www.jcmorris.com

If this is a scam, not a very well planned one.

Who, in their right mind, would put SO much money, into some brand they NEVER even heard about?

When you're building and selling $30,000+ desktop computers, your website can look however you want.

Or when Mr Big finds out, the plug gets pulled and they walk away with their tail between their legs! :Q

Funny. I just called the Media Relations girl, Lisa. She answered the phone with "Hello?" in an ugly tone. I don't know...I'd just think that there'd be a little more formality, or profession tone, to the way you answer the phone. She told me that she wouldn't talk to me that she wanted to get contact information from me and call me back and made this comment "Heh. Well, no. I'm not going to talk to you unless I call you. It's been an interesting week". We'll see if she actually calls back.

Well, somebody is now claiming the monitor is being sent out for reviews. If that does happen, it would make a legit company and I'd stand corrected.

However, it'd still be a fly-by-night one for the reasons already posted in thread (like Mango's post), and I still wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot pole.

Not if you want to stay in business.
