An April 28, 2017 article on Courtkey.com states that "the relevance of the recent articles is the very detailed with irrefutable evidence supporting the claims that Scottsdale AZ based Kelly/Warner Law firm engaged in filing fraudulent lawsuits that involved naming completely fabricated Defendants who did not exist. There were also some cases involving Plaintiffs who did not exist. These allegations are supported with the documentation obtained via the public records that are court filings. It has also been documented that in order to circumvent discovery of this scheme, it was a proven practice to submit filings wherein the signatures of the non-existent litigants would be validated by notarized seal by a Notary. However, when back tracking the Notaries used to validate theses signatures of the named litigants..."
According to USA Herald, one of the fake defendants in one case "appears to be a boy that died of leukemia in 2014"
To wit in the legal filing cited in the link below..."The Defendant Jake Kirschner is a “fake” Defendant as he does not exist. At least not any longer as the spelling of the name is unique and after a thorough investigation there was only one match found nationwide. There was a teenager in Wisconsin who had passed away in 2014 due to leukemia. An example of the practice of Ruddie to use a “fake” party who cannot be “found.”
According to a legal filing, Annuity Sold and JRR Funding exec Richart Ruddie, in the admissions and discovery in the Rhode Island fraud case which Ruddie recently ended up paying money to settle, identified Daniel Warner as a business associate engaging in similar "Reputation Repair Services". Read pages 6-10 of the Motion to Extend Time in the Maricopa County case Charles Rodrick v Barri Grossman et al. CV2016-052228.'
Ruddie & Business Associates in Active Ongoing FBI Investigation says Legal Filing (Ibid.)
"Federal Judge William E. Smith was not at all pleased that his Court had been duped in such a legal strategy scheme and he acted accordingly, including requesting an immediate criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney General’s Office into Mr. Ruddie business dealings and any business associates engaged in similar fraudulent court filings. This in fact has occurred and is an active ongoing FBI investigation today" (as of April 27, 2017)
