    Quoted from MrBally:

    Next: Mad Amusements....

    Great point, I can't believe how fast everyone banded together to take down wildcard yet somehow Mad Amusements continues on. Some people might want disagree, but I feel like Mad is a far worse offender than wildcard was, and really deserves to go down hard.

    With someone hosting copyrighted content in plain view, the proof is right there for everyone to see.

    With MAD Amusements, each individual needs to supply proof, which many have not bothered to do. So from a practical and legal standpoint, there's not a whole lot that can be done.

    True...I guess thats a good point. Make no mistake I'm not trying to defend wildcard here either, I'm just saying, its too bad everyone isn't banding together as much against Mike Ducker. I don't know if any of the MAD threads got to 8 pages, and certainly nowhere this fast.

    Too many "well I got my parts just fine". That's why.

    Looks like the website is gone!
    The Wildcard Amusements facebook page is still up. Anyone care to leave comments there?

    I was kind and gave them an entire star.

    My review has been entered into the record.

    #357 49 days ago

    I can't believe some of you guys are comparing this guy to MAD.

    #358 48 days ago

    I dont think they are i think they said that it would be nice to get MAD like they did this guy. MAD deserves to be behind bars...this guy here deserves a nice day in court and pay a hefty fine

    Exactly this. We all took care of this problem easily and quickly. It would be nice if we could do the same with MAD amusements.

    I would like to thank everyone for their support. Especially Randy who got it all to really happen!

    #361 48 days ago

    I was surprised WIX was that quick to take down the domain.

    Gotcha, and I totally agree.

    I was surprised as well. They were very responsive from the get-go.

    Uh oh, it's baaack!

    Looks like the website has been restored and I still see Clay's pictures there.

    And here's something interesting, now Randy Fromm's website has vanished! Randy's email is bouncing too.

    #366 37 days ago

    Ran a whois lookup on the domain and it still seems to be WIX hosting the site. Seriously? And looks like the contact information on the site is legit as it's the same information for the domain information. Also I'd be willing to bet Randy's is getting DDoS'd. What's the bounce message you're getting?

    #367 37 days ago

    It's not a DDoS attack. Randy's domain no longer has NS records associated with it so nothing will resolve.

    #368 37 days ago
    Quoted from Mike_M:

    It's not a DDoS attack. Randy's domain no longer has NS records associated with it so nothing will resolve.

    Today (8/15) the domain had the following NS records removed:
    phoenix.azc.com
    ns2.azc.com
    ns1.azc.com

    Coincidental mistake or malicious?

    #369 37 days ago
    Quoted from Mike_M:

    Coincidental mistake or malicious?

    Obviously Randy has secretly been ripping all this stuff off from Wildcard for years, and WC finally got it removed...

    #370 37 days ago

    Just checked the original DNS servers listed for his domain and it still had valid records for his website and mail server; it's just that the domain registration was modified not to point to any Name Servers.

    Quoted from VacFink:

    Bingo
    » YouTube video
    Scumbag's probably a craiglist/zillow scammer too. Freakin gross.
    If he does actually work for a realtor, I would bet if his employer or licensing authority would look upon this with interest.
    Edit: I misread and thought he was a lawyer, just a MA in law and ethics, but the address he's tying his WHOIS info is this house for sale by...him.. maybe if its real?

    He's a freakin Realtor?

    #372 37 days ago
    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    He's a freakin Realtor?

    Sure is, Eric Mentzer Real Estate License #RS220307L. Works for Home Sale Real Estate Services Inc. a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway at the Dallastown office - (717) 793-9678. He's even brazen enough to put a link to his wildcard site on his official realtor webpage - http://www.ericmentzer.com/meet/EricMentzer. As of 10 minutes ago the link still worked.

    Quoted from VacFink:

    If he does actually work for a realtor, I would bet if his employer or licensing authority would look upon this with interest.

    I'm sure they would. If Randy, Clay or anyone else finds this guys behavior unacceptable you can reach his acting broker, Cheryl Yerger, at 717-858-0195. I'm sure either her or Berkshire Hathaway in general would love to hear about what this guy is up to in his spare time. You could always stop off at https://www.pals.pa.gov/#/page/filecomplaint and fill out a short form. Licensing ethics committees usually get results alot faster than the courts will.

    Randy's site status with Tucows does show name servers set up but it also shows the status as "clienthold", I am not sure if he meant to do that or if there are other issues now. A clienthold usually happens when you let the payment for the domain name pass by, but he seems to be paid up through 2023. The clienthold can be put on for other various reasons, there could be other things going on.

    I wonder if Eric counter-attacked Randy's site saying Randy copied his content. That can sometimes happen in a dispute like this.

    #375 37 days ago

    His Real Estate site also had a link to his Golf Academy site:

    http://mentzergolfacademy.wixsite.com/mentzergolfacademy

    He's a Jack of all trades.

    #376 37 days ago

    I just got off the phone with Randy Fromm. He didn't know his randyfromm.com website was down, but does now. He said he'd get that taken care of. Right now the site is down and all emails to him at that address are bouncing.

    As to Wildcard Amusements, he's going to check it out. I did notice that when you check out some of the links at Wildcard, some of the pictures have been changed.

    These last few posts just go to show you how juvenile you guys really are on this web site. Whenever you don't like something or someone figures out the truth about you.....you just start spitting out half-witted profanity. Why cant we all be adults here?

    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    Seemingly he's either Wildcard's neighbor, or Wildcard himself and inexplicably decided to post under his neighbor's name. I'm kind of leaning toward option two ...

    Well.....if it is him, he will post every personal B.S. Detail about himself soon enough so everyone will know. Lmao.

    #390 37 days ago

    In all serious fairness to Clay and Randy, we shouldn't derail thread too bad. Don't want it to get to the point where thread gets shut down since it is benifiting them to let them know all the stolen info we are finding.

    Maybe @mods should just be checking into new guy asap and nip it in the bud?

    You are spot on, we know exactly who you are. Please proceed to that nearest lake I was talking about.

    Going by the registered email address, I'm not sure it's Eric. However, it's a free email address, so who actually created that is anyone's guess.
