Convicted Felon Wid Bastian Crawls Out From Under Rock To Beg For Mercy While Still Soliciting Victims On LinkedIn

I receive the following email and “letter” from convicted felon Wid Bastian on February 6, 2020. Both contain a number of inaccuracies and outright lies by Wid, which I will signify by replying line by line IN ALL CAPS. Later I will post the contract that convicted felon Wid Bastian blatantly and fraudulently violated, despite his assertions otherwise.

 

Please beware.

 

Contents of email received from convicted felon Wid Bastian on 2/6/2020:

 

Dan;

WELL, AN ALLEGED WRITER WOULD NORMALLY KNOW A LETTER ISN’T STARTED WITH A SEMICOLON, BUT WITH A COMMA, SO WE ARE OFF TO A GREAT START

Do not email me again.

DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO; YOU HAVE NO JURISDICTION OVER MY ACTIONS IN TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT YOUR LAWBREAKING

You are a named creditor

AMONG DOZENS OF OTHER VICTIMS

in my

LATEST

bankruptcy. Act responsibly.

YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE IRONY IN A CONVICTED FELON AND CON ARTIST TELLING OTHER PEOPLE TO “ACT RESPONSIBLY”

Attached is a statement I’ve sent to anyone who asks.

WE WILL SEE THE STATEMENT MOMENTARILY, BUT IT IS NOT SIGNED NOR WAS IT SWORN OUT UNDER OATH, SO IT’S REALLY A  PIECE OF MEDIA PROPAGANDA A.K.A. LIES.

On top of what I say in that statement, let me assure you of this: the Do No Harm and the other two Collabs were, in a legal sense, handled properly.

NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH; ALL REVENUES FROM THE SET WERE EMBEZZLED BY WID BASTIAN AND THE CHARITIES WERE DEFRAUDED

My reports

NO REPORTS WERE GIVEN TO ME AND NO COSTS WERE EVER VERIFIED

are accurate

THEY WERE NOT ACCURATE AND WERE NOT SUBSTANTIATED IN ANY WAY, WITH RECEIPTS OR OTHERWISE, NOR WERE THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS VERIFIED BY ANYONE

(I UNDERSTATED the costs).

THE COSTS APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN MADE UP AND WERE IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE CONTRACT

For you in particular, you became a USA Today Bestselling author for $750.

THAT IS NOT THE CASE; MY COSTS WERE MORE THAN THAT AND CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN ASKED FOR MORE MONEY BUT WHEN WE REVOLTED HE WITHDREW THE REQUEST, NOT TO MENTION HE VIOLATED THE TERMS OF SERVICE OR AMAZON

Read the DNH report.

TO DATE, NO REPORT WAS GIVEN TO ME BY CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN

I could only distribute “net income”, to either the charity or the authors.

THAT WAS NOT WHAT WAS AGREED; THE CHARITIES WERE TO RECEIVE 100% OF THE PREORDER PROCEEDS, AND THERE IS NO MENTION OF REVENEUE FORM PAGE READS IN KUNDLE UNLIMTED; YOU ALSO ATTEMPTED TO ALTER THE CONTRACT ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION

There was no net income

THIS ALLEGATION IS FRAUDULENT BECAUSE CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN ALLEGEDED THAT HIS COSTS WERE MORE THAN THE REVENUES BUT PROVIDED NO PROOF OF ANY EXPENSES OTHER THAN INFLATED AND ARBITRATY SALARIES FOR HIMELF AND TWO ASSISTANTS, ONE OR MORE OF WHICH MAY NOT HAVE EVER BEEN PAID OR EVEN EXISTED.

I didn’t invent GAAP rules

NO ONE ALLEGED A CONVICTED FELON INVENTED ACCOUNTING RULES

I just followed them – explicitly

GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES REQUIRE RECEIPTS BE MAINTAINED AND LEDGERS KEPT, REPORTS BE SIGNED OFF ON MY AN ACCOUNTING FIRM, CLIENTS NOT BE EMBEZZLED FROM, CONTRACTS BE FOLLOWED, ETC – BASIC THINGS WHICH WERE NEVER DONE.

How can you even begin to say that I ripped you off?

BECAUSE YOU TOOK ALL THE MONEY FROM OUR SET, INEXCESS OF $20,000, AND BECAUSE YOU DO THAT IN EVERY SET YOU MANAGE, THAT’S HOW.

Genius Media

POSSIBLY A FICTITIOUS COMPANY

collapsed due to being over leveraged

THAT’S A NICE WAY OF SAYING HE TOOK ALL THEM MONEY BUT DIDN’T DO THE WORK HE WAS PAID TO DO.

That’s bad enough, but your posts give the impression that I was ripping people off, which is a lie

MY POSTS ARE 100% TRUE AND ARE MUCH CLOSER TO THE TRUTH THAN ANYTHING YOU HAVE EVER SAID.

All this smoke you’re putting out cannot hide the facts

I AM TRYING TO GET THE FACTS OUT THERE AND NOT FURTHER THE LIES YOU ARE STILL TELLING.

The fact is that I could no longer support my debt burden, that’s why I declared bankruptcy. Go ahead and keep sending letters to State AGs or whomever

THANK YOU, I WILL: IRS, FBI, STATE ATTORNEY GENERALS, ETC.

When they see the facts, not the BS you and your friends are spouting, your nonsense complaints will go nowhere. I have the facts on my side (and all of the documentation)

THEN WHY DIDN’T YOU / DON’T YOU PROVIDE IT? BECAUSE WE BOTH KNOW IT DOESN’T EXIST.

From now on direct your comments to my lawyers.

YOU DON’T GET TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO, ASSHOLE – THE TRUTH IS ON MY SIDE AND THE OTHER 19+ AUTHORS YOU LIED TO, EMBEZZLED FROM, AND CHEATED, AS WELL AS POSSIBLY ANOTHER 30 AUTHORS THAT I HAVE HEARD ABOUT

Stop harassing me

TELLING THE TRUTH PUBLICLY IS NOT HARRASSMENT, STUPID.

Get a life

OF THE TWO OF US, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THE ONE WHO DIDN’T SPEND 10 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON, DIDN’T RUN OUT ON MY 4-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, DIDN’T USE MY FIRST WIFE’S HOUSE AS COLLATERAL TO RUN FROM THE LAW, I’M THE ONE WITH A LIFE; YOU HAVE A SERIES OF VERY STUPID MISTAKES AND SERVED TIME IN FEDERASL PRISON – FOR COUNTERFEITING, OF ALL THINGS! THAT’S SOMEONE WITH NO LIFE – AND NO CLUE.

Wid Bastian

POSSIBLY NOT EVEN HIS REAL NAME BECAUSE HE HAS UPWARDS OF 6 ALISES ACCORING TO THE FBI WANTED POSTER

 

THE STATEMENT FROM CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN REFERRED TO ABOVE, FOLLOWS. PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT SIGNED, IS NOT SWORN UNDER OATH, HAS NOT BEEN VERIFIED BY ANY OUTSIDE SOURCE, AND CONTAINS A NUMBER OF INACCURRACIES, MISSTATEMENTS, AND OURIGHT LIES:

From 2014 through the end of 2019, I owned and operated a company called Genius Media.

TO DATE WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED VERIFICATION THAT ANY SUCH COMPANY EXISTED, ONLY THAT CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN SAID IT DID

I was forced

ODD WORD; HE TOLD US IT GOT ACQUIRED. I GUESS HE LIED

to cease operations of Genius Media for several reasons

TO MY KNOWLEDHE IT DIDN’T CEASE; HE CONTINUED TO SOLICIT VICTIMS

first and foremost because my firm was overleveraged.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THAT SPECIFICALLY MEANS HERE; WHAT HE MAY MEAN IS, HE TOOK A LOT OF MONEY FROM CLIENTS AND DIDN’T DO THE WORK

The responsibility for any business failure ultimately rests with the owner.

NOTE HOW HE DID NOT SAY “ME” HERE

However, misinformation

HE CANNOT BE REFERRING TO MY POSTS BNECAUSE THERE WAS NO MISINFORMATION IN THEM, ONLY THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW HE INTENTIONALL AND WITH MALICE STOLE FROM CLIENTS WITH THE INTENT TO DEFRAUD, INCLUDING STATEMENTS RECEIVED THAT HE TOOK APPROXIMATELY $10,000 FROM ONE AUTHOR TO TURN A BOOK INTO A SCREENPLAY AND DID NO WORK

was publicly posted about me and Genius Media

AGAIN, A CORPORATION THAT MAY NOT EVEN EXIST

in December 2019 and January 2020.

PRIVATELY, A LOT MORE WAS SAID BUT DECORUM PREVENTS ME FROM POSTING IT HERE

Let me set the record straight.

GET READY FOR THE LIES

In the 1990s, more than 25 years ago, I owned an investment company that

YOU EMBEZZLED FROM AND WERE ORDERED TO PAY $3 MILLION IN RESTUTUTION TO THE VICTIMS

experienced serious problems.

AKA THEFT AND EMBEZZLEMENT

ALSO, ACCORDING TO NUMEROUS REPORTS, WID BASTIAN WAS SENT TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR COUNTERFEITING, ALSO FOR TAKING MORE THAN $800,000 FROM A CLIENT

I am an ex-felon

TO MY KNOWLEDGE, YOU ARE CURRENTLY A CONVICTED FELON; NO COURT HAS WAVIED YOUR CONVICTION NOR EXPUGNED YOUR RECORD NOR ANY GOVERNOR GRANTED YOU A PARDON

based on my involvement with that company

EMBEZZLEMENT, FROM DOCUMENTS, PUBLIC RECORDS I RECEIVED AND INTERVIEWS I CONDUCTED

As a legal matter, the case has been over for 15 plus years.

THIS IS NOT TRUE; CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN WAS REMANDED BY A FEDERAL JUDGE TO NOT HANDLE MONEY FOR ANY CLIENTS EVER AGAIN, WHICH HE VIOLATED WHEN HE INSISTED THE REVENUES FROM AMAZON FOR THE BOX SETS BE PAID TO HIM ON BEHALF OF THE AUTHORS

I never told anyone who asked me anything but the truth about my history

ACTUALLY YOU APPEAR TO HAVE LIED ABOUT IT TO MANY PEOPLE AND LIED ABOUT IT IN THIS VERY DOCUMENT

but I also did not advertise it.

BECAUSE ADVERTISING ISN’T SOMETHING YOU EVER DO, EVEN IF PEOPLE PAY YOU TO DO IT AND YOU PROMISE YOU WILL

This company had nothing to do with the arts (eBooks, films, etc.).

UNLESS YOU CONSIDER EMBEZZLEMENT AN ART FORM

From 2014 through 2019, I promoted hundreds of authors at Genius Media.

PROMOTED, STOLE FROM; POTATO/POTAHTO. INFORMATION INDICATES HE SOLICITED MANY AUTHORS AND SUBSEQUENTLY EMBEZZLED AND DEFRAUDED MANY OF THEM; TO DATE HE HAS NOT PROVIDED ANY RECORDS TO INDICATE HE DID ANY OF THE REQUIRED WORK HE WAS CONTRACTED TO DO

Did every author do well under my eBook promotion system? Of course not.

BOY IS THAT THE TRUTH; DID ANY DO WELL IS A BETTER QUESTION

Did most authors make money

NO, ACCORDING TO 100% OF THE AUTHORS I SPOKE WITH

and/or

THAT AND/OR IS A CUTE WAY TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE AUTHORS MADE MONEY WHEN THEY DIDN’T

substantially build their brand

THAT’S IS A VAGUE AND UNMEASURABLE TERM, BUT IT IS INRTDNDED TO MAKE THE RESDER THINK THE AUTHORS MADE MONEY. THEY DIDN’T. MADE MONEY AND/OR BUILT THEIR BRAND” WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN IN DEFINABLE TERMS? IT IS INTENTIONALL VAGUE HERE TO IMPLY THEY MADE MONEY WHEN THEY DIDN’T.

under my system?

NO PROOF HAS BEEN FURNISHED TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS CLAIM, BUT A LOT OF PROOF HAS BEEN OBTAINED THAT DIRECTLY DISPUTES IT

Absolutely.

ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT

I have documented results with Amazon sales charts, screenshots, emails, etc. to prove this claim.

NO SUCH VERIFIED REPORTS, SCREEN SHOTS, OR EMAILS WERE GIVEN TO ANY CLIENTS THAT I AM AWARE OF; SEVERAL ITEMS WERE CREATED BY CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN BUT WERE UNVERIFIABLE AND APPEAR FRAUDULENT

I have many emails in possession

YOU SHOULD SHARE THEM; A LOT OF PEOPLE YOU ROBBED ARE UPSET THAT YOU HAVE FAKE TESTIMONIALS FROM THEM ON YOUR WEBSITE DESPITE THEM ASKING YOU TO TAKE IT DOWN

some from the same, few authors

VERY FEW

who are now accusing me of deliberately harming them

YES BECAUSE YOU EMBEZZLED FROM THEM AND HAVE FAKE TESTIMONIALS ON YOUR WEBSITE FROM THEM

in one way or another through my 2019 Collabs (see below), telling me how well they did and how happy they were with my eBook promotional services.

ACTUALLY, SEVERAL WENT ONTO KBOARDS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT YOU AND YOU METHODS, TO WARN OTHERS, AND TO ASK QUESTION ABOUT YOUR TACTICS; TO MY KNOWLEDGE, ALL OF THOSE COMPLAINTS WERE TOLD YOU WERE NOT BEING FORTHRIGHT AND WERE SOMEONE TO STAY AWAY FROM; CONVERSELY, YOU APPEAR TO HAVE TRIED TO STEM THE TIDE OF NEGATIVE CRITICISM OF YOUR TACTIC AND WERE BURIED IN COMPLAINS, ULTIMATELY LEAVING THE SITE

I have recorded video testimonials from some of these same authors.

SAYING YOU HAVE THEM DOESN’T MEAN YOU DO, BUT YOU SHOULD SHOW US THOSE AND WE’LL SEE IF THOSE AUTHORS STILL FEEL POSITIVE ABOUT THEIR EXPERICNCE WITH YOU; TO DATE, I HAVE NOT ENCOUNTERED ANY THAT ARE HAPPY WITH YOU STEALING FROM THEM

Yet somehow, if a few recent posts are to be believed, I morphed into an “eBook Frankenstein”

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS, BUT IF YOU ARE WILLING TO REFER TO YOURSELF AS A MONSTER, I WILL CONCEDE YOUR POINT; MONSTER IT IS

and became a bad actor in late 2019

ACTUALLY, WE BELIEVE YOU WERE A BAD ACTOR / MONSTER FOR MUCH LONGER THAN THAT, AND DESPITE TEN YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON YOU SEEM TO HAVE GONE RIGHT TO EMBEZZLEMENT UPON BEING RELASED; YOU COULDN’T STAY CLEAN AT ALL, LOSER

Industry websites who posted or reposted these rants

A RANT IS WHAT THIS DELUSIONAL FANTASY LETTER/STATEMENT IS

should have done their homework

YOU WOULD HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING IF THEY DID OR DID NOT DO THEIR HOMEWORK BUT ANYONE WHO LOOKS INTO YOUR METHODS OF STEALING FROM CLIENTS AND VIOLATING AMAZON TERMS OF SERVICE – WHICH CAN GET AN AUTHOR BANNED FROM AMAZON – WILL NO DOUBT BE LABELED AS NOT DOING THEIR HOMEWORK WHEN THEY DECIDE YOU AREN’T HONEST. IT’S NOT THAT YOU’RE A THIEF, THEY JUST DIDN’T DO ENOUGH HOMEWORK. PLEASE PROVIDE US ANY PROOF TO THE CONTRARY SO WE CAN SEE WHAT A SHINING BEACON OF TRUTH AND HARD WORK YOU ARE

if their goal was to provide an accurate and complete picture of my eBook promotion business.

UNLIKE YOUR GOALS WHICH HAVE, FOR UPWARDS OF 20 YEARS, BEEN TO STEAL FROM CLIENTS

In late 2019, when Genius Media

A COMPANY THAT MAY HAVE NEVER EXISTED AND ONE THAT WAS 180 DEGREES MISLABELED; NO GENIUS THERE

was nearing its end

AKA, WID COULDN’T KEEP THE TRUTH FROM COMING OUT, CHECKS WERE DUE AND HE NEEDED TO KEEP THE  MONEY HE EMBEZZLED

I filed reports on three Boxed Set Collabs

I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS; MOST AUTHORS IN THE SETS WERE NEVER GIVEN AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FROM CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN OR ANY REPORT AT ALL FROM CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN, BUT THEY WERE REPEATEDLY TOLD ACCOUNTANTS WERE COMPILING IT; NO ACCOUNTANT SIGNED OFF ON ANY INFORMATION TO DATE RECEIVED FROM CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN – COINCIDENCE? MORE FRAID AND DECEPTION? ARE YOU HOPING WE’D FORGET YOU SAID ALL THOSE THINGS? WE HAVE IT IN SCREEN SHOTS FROM FACEBOOK PAGES

I ran in 2019. Two of those three Collabs were successful

INVESTORS BELIEVE A SUCCESSFUL INVESTMENT IS ONE THAT PAYS ITS INVESTORS; WHEREAS CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN SEEMS TO BELIEVE A SUCCESSFUL INVESTMENT IS HIM KEEPING ALL THE MONEY AND NOT DOING THE WORK AS PER THE CONTRACT

all of the authors involved became USA Today Bestselling Authors

THAT’S DEMONSTRABLY NOT TRUE, AND MANY WERE ALREADY USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHORS

(for a fee of $750 per author, not a penny more)

THAT IS ALSO NOT TRUE; ANY LEGIT READING OF THE CONTRACT WILL SHOW THE FEE WAS $750 AND THAT $750 FEE WAS FOR ALL MARKETING EXPENSES AND SALARIES; 1005 OF THE PREORDER REVENUES WERE TO BE PAID TO CHARITIES, 1005 OF THE REVENUES FROM THE SET WERE TO BE PAID TO THE AUTHORS – WHICH NEVER HAPPENED, IN VIOLATION OF THE CONTRACT, WHICH I SAID TO YOU AT THE TIME. YOU BEGGED FOR MORE TIME, DURING WHICH YOU DECLARED BANKRUPTCY – AFTER HIDING FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AND NOT TALKING TO ANYONE IN THE SET

One Collab did not reach that goal.

IT IS ARBITRARY AND CAPRICIOUS FOR CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN TO STATE WHAT THE GOALS OF THE AUTHORS WERE, SINCE MANY WANTED TO MAKE MONEY ON AN INVESTMENT AND DID NOT MAKE MONEY BUT WERE EMBEZZLED FROM

I was legally obligated to wrap up the affairs under the terms and conditions as stated in the signed Collab contracts

ACTUALLY, CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIN VIOLATED THE TERMS OF THE CONTACT AND THE TERMS OF SERVICE OF AMAZON INC, AS WELL AS MISSING DEADLINES FOR SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE IN SAID COINTRACTS

I did just that.

NO, YOU STOLE ALL THE MONEY AND DID NOT PERFORM THE WORK AS PER THE CONTRACT

A few of the authors in these Collabs got angry

I AM NOT CERTAIN ANY WERE ANGRY WHEN THE ALLEGED REPORTS WERE ISSUED, BUT CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIN CANNOT KNOW THE STATE OF MIND OF THE VICTIMS; BUT CONCEDING HIS VICTIMS WERE ANGRY, ONE MIGHT THINK HE WOULD PROVIDE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND RECIPTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE TO SHOW HE DID THE WORK, WHICH WAS ASKED FOR BUT NEVER PROVIDED

when those reports were issued. They published false statements about me

I AM UNAWARE OF ANYONE PUBLISHING FALSE STATEMENTS ABOUT CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN

that were picked up by a few industry websites

I AM UNAWARE OF ANY INDUSTRY WEBSITES PICKING UP FALSE STATEMNETS; RATHER, SEVERAL THAT I BECAME AWARE OF DISCOVERED ADDITION VICTIMS OF CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN

and bloggers.

The final Collab reports were prepared under the supervision of legal and accounting counsel.

THIS IS DEMONSTRABLY NOT TRUE AND APPEARS TO BE A COMPLETE FABRICATION; NO REPUTABLE ACCOUNTING FIRM OR LAWYER HAS SIGNED OFF ON ANY FINANCIAL REPORTS THAT CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN SENT OUT, AND MOST AUTHORS RECEIVED NO STATEMENTS FROM CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN AT ALL

I also provided revenue and expense documentation to the authors along with a report. Here are three determinative provisions of these reports. One, I was only allowed, by the terms of the contracts, to distribute “net income.” There was no “net income” to distribute.

BY ARTIFICIALLY INFLATING WAGES CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN CREATED FAKE EXPENSEDS IN EXCESS OF ALL REVENUES, WITHHELD REVENUE INFORMATION FROM THE INVESRTORS, AND PROVIDED NO VERIFICATION OF ANY EXPENSES, SO THE STATEMENTS ARE FALSE AND FRAUDULENT ON THEIR FACE; ADDITIONALLY, CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN NEVER PROVIDED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS TO THE INDIVIDUAL AUTHORS IN THE SET AS HE ALLEGES, BUT RATHER GAVE A SUMMARY OF SEVERELY INADEQUATE  REPORTING TO ONE AUTHOR AND TOLD THAT AUTHOR TO GIVE IT TO EVERYONE ELSE, DESPITE CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN HAVING THE EMAIL ADDRESS OF EVERY AUTHOR IN THE SET

Two, each contract began at a specific time and ended at a specific time.

NONE OF THE CONTRACTS I WITNESSED STATED THAT

Revenue or expenses outside of the contract period could not be included in the reconciliation.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT HE’S BABBLING ABOUT HERE

Three, Genius Media was the sole determiner of expenses – no other person or entity had the right to determine expenses.

EXCEPT THAT PEOPLE CANNOT CONTRACT TO PERFORM ILLEGAL ACTIVITOES, WICH YOU DID WHEN YOU KNWINGLY ACTED TO DEFRAUDE THE VICTIMES; THAT STATEMENT (ABOVE) IS THE KEY RIGHT THERE, CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED EXPENES AND THEN SAID HE WAS THE SOLE DETERMINANT OF THE EXPENSES, A MOVE DECIDEDLY NOT WITHIN GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES, NOT AN ARMS LENGTH TRANSACTION, ALLOWS FOR MONETARY MANIPULATION IN VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW, AND IS DECEPTIVE ON ITS FACE

All expenses were conservatively calculated

NO, THEY WERE GROSSLY EXCESSIVE

and documented

THEY WERE NOT DOCUMENTED AT ALL.

Lastly, I’ve seen reference to a provision in these contracts stating that “expenses cannot exceed fees.” Author fees were paid for “participating” in the Collab, not as a determiner of expenses (this exact language is found in each contract). What this provision prevented was a “cash call” – asking authors for more money than their $750 fee to promote the Collab. No author, in any of my 2019 Collabs, paid one dime more than their $750 fee.

THAT’S NOT TRUE

Two of the three Collabs made the USA Today Bestseller list – that means those 30 authors achieved this USA Today goal for the price of $750.

TO IMPLY THAT IT MIRACULOUSLY HAPPENED WITHOUT MANY NEWSLETTER SWAPS, CONSTANT POSTING IN Facebook groups, swaps, and the efforts of two separate charities is a willful misrepresentation of the facts

I did nothing wrong

UNLESS YOU CONSIDER LYING AND EMBEZZLENET WRONG, PREDATORY PRACTICES, AS WELL AS FRAUD, THEFT, VIOLATING THE TERMS OF THE CONTRACT, VIOLATING AMAZON’S TERMS OF SERVICE, AND PRETENDING TO HAVE YOUR COMPANY GET ACQUIRED BY ANOTHER THAT YOU THEN SAID YOU OWNED

from a legal perspective

IT WOULD BE BEST FOR ALL TO SEEK LEGAL ADVICE FROM PERSONS OTHER THAN A CONVICTED FELON AND ALLEGED SOCIOPATH, THANK YOU

on these Collabs.

I did not communicate well

BECAUSE YOU WERE LYING TO THEM ABOUT REVENUES EARNED AND MAKING STATEMNTS ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY WOULD MAKE

with the authors from October 2019 forward.

YOU DROPPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH, STOPPED RETURNING CALLS, REFUSED CERTIFIED LETTERS, BLOCKED THE AUTHORS FROM THE SET ON FACEBOOK, AND REFUSED TO RETURN THEIR EMAILS, WHILE TAKING THEIR MONEY AND DEFRAUDING THE CHARITIES THEY PLEDGED – WITH YOU – MONEY TO

I could and should have done better in that area.

IT’S HARD TO IMAGINE HOW YOU COULD HAVE DONE WORSE, EXCEPT WHEN ONE REALIZES YOU WERE INTENTIONALLY STEALING FROM THEM AND TRYING TO GET AWAY, THEN IT MAKES TOTAL SENSE

That said

THAT GROUP OF LIES SAID

my legal obligation was to wrap up the affairs of each Collab properly.

NO ONE BELIEVES ANY LEGAL COUNSEL WAS SOUGHT BY CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN EXCEPT TO DECLARE BANKRUPTCY

The allegation that I “scammed” authors in these Collabs or filed false reports is not only false; it is defamatory.

NOT ONLY IS IT TRUE, IT IS THE BEST WAY TO SUM UP YOUR ACTIVITIES, LACK OF EXPLANATIONS, EXCESSIVE FEES, LACK OF DOCUMENTATION, AND SUBSEQUENT MANIPULATION OF THE BANKRUPTCY LAWS

As I said in the first paragraph, I am ultimately responsible for the demise of Genius Media.

WE ALL SAW GOODFELLAS; THIS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF LIGHTING A  MATCH TO THE COPA

Despite my best efforts and intentions

TO NOT GET CAUGHT

I did not succeed.

YOU SURE DID NOT! PRISON AWAITS AGAIN, JAIL BIRD

This failure

OR FRAUD, DEPENDING ON YOUR POINT OF VIEW

has not only hurt me

NO ONE BELIEVES YOU WERE HURT, WID; IN FACT, PROFESSIONALS FEEL YOU ARE A SOCIOPATH INCAPABLE OF FEELING

my family

SPEAKING OF FAMILY, YOU ALLEGEDLY WALKED OUT ON YOUR FOUR YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, LEVERAGED YOU FIRST WIFE’S HOUSE TO PAY YOUR WAY OUT OF PRISON SO YOU COULD GO ON THE RUN, AND DID YOU REALLY TELL THE KID YOU HAD ANOTHER FAMILY WAITING IN UTAH? MEANWHILE,

and friends

ALL OF WHOM YOU STOLE FROM AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER, MY REPORTS SAY

it also negatively impacted my clients

OR YOU ABILITY TO PROCURE NEW ONES AKA VICTIMS, AND ONE CAN ONLY HOPE SO

some far more than others.

NO MENTION OF THE CHARITIES YOU DEFRAUDED/ HOMELESS VETERANS AND PET SHELTERS? THEY CAN GO SCREW THEMSELVES?

Dealing with this matter is tough enough

FOR US, IT IS!

but when a few

MORE AND MORE EVERY DAY

people post unsubstantiated

THE TRUTH

Defamatory

THE TRUTH

Allegations

TRUTHS

about me and Genius Media and those false

NONE OF IT IS FALSE

statements are then picked up by industry sites

YOU WISH; THE INDUSTRY STILL DOESN’T KNOW YOU EXIST

and given a false aura of legitimacy

IT IS COMPLETELY LEGIT AND VERIFIABLE

substantial harm has been done

BY YOU, FELON

that cannot be undone, even with a clarification

LIE

or retraction.

FEEL FREE TO RETRACT ANY OF YOUR LIES AT ANY TIME, MAKE RESTITUTION, ADMIT WHAT YOU DID TO YOUR VICTIMS, REPORT YOUR EARINGS TO THE IRS, REPORT YOUR ACTIONS TO THE FBI, AND TAKE YOUR PRISON TIME LIKE AN ADULT.

 

Wid Bastian

UNSIGNED, AND ONE OF MANY ALIASES

February 3, 2020

THE DATE IS POSSIBLY THE ONLY CORRECT THING HE PUT IN THIS STATEMENT

 

 

Wid Bastian Declares BANKRUPTCY (Again)

Convicted felon, con man, and alleged marketer Wid Bastian has just filed for bankruptcy – again.

Guess he messed with the wrong people.

But don’t worry. Prison still awaits, Wid! It seems the Utah state Attorney General (I spoke with their office again this morning) has a real dislike for people who defraud charities, which Wid did when he embezzled over $20,000 from our box set and the two charities we pledged the money to.

And check out his old Wanted poster – I think a new one will be coming soon!

Wid Bastian wanted poster

If you see this very ugly, very stupid felon and con man, hold on to your wallet and run!

 

Is he UGLY or what???

Is Wid Bastian a SOCIOPATH? Decide for yourself with this handy checklist

Wid Bastian wanted poster

Recently I wrote about an alleged marketer con man named Wid Bstsian, who served time in prison for fraud – and then got out and went right back to ripping people off, including me and 19 of my author friends

A source who was previously close to convicted felon Wid Bastian indicated that during court proceedings professionals stated that Wid was a sociopath – a condition known previously as “morally insane.”

Is convicted felon and con man Wid Bastian a sociopath? Using this handy checklist, decide for yourself.

Here are some of the common features and descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

  • Glibness and Superficial Charm
  • Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
  • Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
  • Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
  • Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
  • Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
  • Incapacity for Love
  • Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
  • Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
  • Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
    Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
  • Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
    Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
  • Irresponsibility/Unreliability
    Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
  • Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
    Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
  • Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
    Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
  • Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Other Related Qualities:

  1. Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
  2. Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
  3. Authoritarian
  4. Secretive
  5. Paranoid
  6. Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
  7. Conventional appearance
  8. Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
  9. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life
  10. Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim’s affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
  11. Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
  12. Incapable of real human attachment to another
  13. Unable to feel remorse or guilt
  14. Extreme narcissism and grandiose
  15. May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

(The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare. and ere taken from https://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html)

I’m not a mental health professional, but if you look at that list, people who have met Wid Bastian would agree – he displays almost every one of those items.

Sleep well, Widstoe Bastian, while you can.

The Attorney General of the State of Utah will be calling upon you SOON.

 

Wid Bastian RIPPED ME OFF, TOO! More victims come forward.

By now you have seen my post about convicted felon Wid Bastian (below), a “marketer” who I believe is nothing but a thief and con man.

Why do I say that?

Well, he DID TIME IN PRISON for that very thing!

Wid Bastian wanted poster

Nic pic. Did they snap the camera on “two” and you were waiting for “three”?

This post will add additional information to the original. Scroll down for updates, highlighted in red.

I recently became a USA Today bestselling, something I’m very proud of. But in the process, Wid Bastian, an alleged marketer and convicted felon, stole more than $20,000 from me and other authors I worked with.

That’s not okay.

(I have no concerns about what follows because the truth is the best defense. Here goes.)

The idea was…

cross market between 17 authors, our fan bases, our newsletter subscribers (some of these authors have 30,000 subscribers!), buy ads, AND – this is big – get a few big charities to work with us: we’d give 100% of the preorder money to the charities if they advertised our book to their donor list (that’s tens of thousands of people, gang).

So… we did.

The charities, contacted by authors in the group, advertised our books to their donor list.

The authors cross marketed.

We networked.

We tweeted and posted and a bunch of other stuff, to build a critical mass to get our books the recognition necessary to sell enough copies to make the USA Today bestseller list.

We worked hard.

We helped others who had less experience.

The set manager/marketer, convicted felon Wid Bastian, did very little as far as we can tell.

February 2020 UPDATE: Wid Bastian aliases:

  • Wid Bastian
  • Widstoe Bastian
  • Widstoe Bastion
  • Bastian Widsoe
  • Ted Giady
  • Paul J. Hutson
  • Glenn Alan Taylor
  • Widstoe T. Bastian
  • and more

(Some of these are said to be identification thefts)

Good grief, this loser has played more characters than Harrison Ford!

His co-conspirators like Cameron Davis and others used to work for Genius Media and now work for Kairos Phoenix, but there could be dozens of shell companies, so you have to stay alert.

According to my sources, Wid went to prison for ten years for fraud and stealing over $3 million dollars.

My sources also allege:

  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN walked out on his four year old daughter because “I have a new family in Utah” and she never saw him again
  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN converted religions four times in efforts to gain favor with whatever audience he was in front of
  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN stole over $800,000 from one client
  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN likes to hang out in Las Vega and Utah with high school friends. He allegedly lives in Providence, Utah
  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN is a fan of Facebook, so public posts about him would probably eventually be seen by him or friends of his, who would share it with him
  • CONVICTED FELON WID BASTIAN was said by professionals during court proceedings to be a sociopath (like we didn’t know that already) NOTE: In the 1830’s this disorder was called “moral insanity.”

According to MyLife, Wid Bastian has a consumer safety rating of “bad.” The site shows multiple red flag warnings indicating

Widstoe Bastian “DOES have arrest or criminal records” and

“DOES have lawsuits, liens or bankruptcies.”

We now know a lot of that is true.

This isn’t sour grapes. We EACH paid $750 for ads to promote our books. 17 x $750 = $12,500, which was to buy ads and pay expenses. We made a TON of royalties in a short period, adding up to over $20,000 combined.

But apparently, Wid Bastian and Cameron Davis had other ideas for him and his co-conspirators. It seems

they decided their expenses were magically going to equal JUST a little more than the total of ALL the fees the authors paid AND ALL THE ROYALTY MONIES EARNED.

THEY KEPT ALL THE MONEY.

EVERY CENT.

They kept the fees. They kept the royalties. They kept the money the promised to charities.

All of it.

Well, gang, in my opinion, that’s just fraud.

(Seems the Florida Attorney General agrees with me, too, as does the AG in half a dozen other states.)

The contract says he can’t keep all the money.

But it gets better! Before he told us that lie, he kept telling us he needed to file a report or get with an accountant to make sure the numbers were right, DELAYING the payment deadline.

That’s a big old red flag.

Then, on the DAY OF deadline, he said his company got acquired that day and he was really busy. Like, he tripped of this acquisition in the dark – whoops! how did that acquisition get there? – and had no idea it was about to happen. Because that makes total sense. (I’ve done a few acquisition when I was at a Fortune 500 company working my way toward President’s Circle. Acquisitions just happen out of the blue! Uh huh.)

Here are some other fun facts.

Wid has engaged with dozens of other authors, writers and filmmakers, pulling the same scam.

But…

We aren’t stupid.

Criminal complaints have been filed by more than half a dozen state Attorney Generals regarding the founder of this company, Wid Bastion and his aliases, among them Cameron Davis, formerly of Genius Media. The IRS has been contacted, as well as the FTC and FBI, as well as a criminal attorney who instructed us to file certain notices to Wid via email and certified mail…

My advice is: DO NOT do business with this company. Duh.

How Wid and his scammers operate:

Method 1: The Box Set Marketing Scam

 In early 2019, Wid Bastion and his associates via Genius Media targeted authors, entering into contracts with more than 17 individual authors for book marketing services, and defrauded each of them, as well as defrauding at least two charities he encouraged them to use as network partners. Wid violated the terms of his agreements, paying none of the more than $20,000 in fees and royalties generated from these contracts.

Allegedly, Kairos Phoenix company took over “Genius Media” on the very day that the checks were due to the set participants. Wid Bastian gave numerous excuses for delaying the payments, in what appears to some to be a Ponzi scheme. His plan appears to be to create a company, bilk the customers out of their royalties and fees, and then fold the company and create a new one.

BEWARE. Widtsoe Bastian is 59 years old and was born on 04/06/1960. Widtsoe Bastian lives in Providence, UT; previous cities include Saint George UT, Las Vegas NV and Reno NV. Sometimes Widtsoe goes by various nicknames including Widtsoe T Bastiam, Widstoe T Bastian, Bastian Widtsoe, Wid Bastian and Widsoe Bastian. He currently claims to work as a Publisher, Editor and Writer at Genius Media, Inc., and now Kairos Phoenix company.

Wid Bastian’s scheme appears to involve sending UNSOLICITED letters to authors, writers, and filmmakers stating “My name is Wid Bastian and I own Genius Media, an eBook promotion company. I’m reaching out to you today because you are a well branded Indie author. Your (genre) books are fantastic! I wish that I had time to read all of them. I have peeked at a couple, read reviews of your work and scanned your author bio…” However, Wid Bastian has repeatedly been labeled on K-Boards as someone authors should stay away from.

His form letter appears to contain “positive” references from at least one author who is suing him for breach of contract and fraud.

How Wid and his scammers operate

Method 2: The Screenplay Scam

Sources tell me Wid allegedly met with authors in person or by email and told them he had connections in Hollywood, had written many screenplays, and would get their book turned into a major motion picture or TV series

All they had to do was hire a screen writer and Wid would get the wheels turning!

Of course, they didn’t know a screenwriter, but Wid did – so he collected a fee to get the screenplay written and then start showing it around to Hollywood people.

  • In one case that was reported to me, Wid is alleged to have taken over $6000 from the author but did no work
  • In another case an author told me of, Wid allegedly took over $10,000 from her to produce a screen play and did none of the work
  • In another case, it is suspected that Wid took a substantial fee and promised a TV series but so far… only a bankruptcy filing for a company that may or may not have even existed!
  • Remember: in the past, Wid stole money from family and friends totaling approximately $3,000,000 to fund his schemes and lavish lifestyle, resulting in a 10-year prison sentence

There are a LOT of people who will rip you off in this business. You have to be careful. I wasn’t.

I achieved USA Today bestseller status because I networked and cross marketed with 16 other authors and two charities. We aren’t sure Wid bought ANY ads.

We actually aren’t sure what “marketers” Wid Bastian and Cameron Davis he did – except keep all our fees and royalties.

The fees were supposed to be an investment to buy ads and pay the salaries for managing us, but they kept OUR ROYALTIES, which we were supposed to get – and there were a LOT of royalties!

He kept it ALL.

So, in my opinion, Wid Bastian is a piece of shit, and so is Cameron Davis and their  cohorts. Avoid them, and tell your friends to avoid them.

He offers to give you something you want – USA Today, networking, interaction with other authors who sell tons of books, better exposure – but you can do that without him (as we did), and without losing a lot of money to a thief.

How to protect yourself:

Hey, Google any marketer you think about using. Ask friends. 99% of the time that will tell you what you need to know. K-Boards had a TON of warnings about Wid Bastian, by reputable authors who asked questions no one could answer.

Usually, the thief wins because they take advantage of people’s good natures and the embarrassment and shame that comes from being ripped off.

Ha! Not in this case! I have no shame. And I have author friends who I will protect from you.

Wid, you ripped me off. I’ll do my best to make sure you don’t rip off anyone else.

Check out this video interview I did with two law enforcement officers about Wid.

The good part (about getting ripped off by Wid) starts at around 30 minutes into the video.

I’ll get satisfaction on my terms.

This post is just one small, itsy bitsy step.

Oh, and by the way, I was able to TELL the piece of shit Wid Bastian weeks ago on Facebook that I was on to him and that I knew he was a thief. (That felt good.) He replied, which means he read the comments I made calling him out. Each reply was basically a delay tactic – a request to be nice and give him more time, like this one, which came in an email after he’d had enough of Facebook (I cut some parts out to keep it to the relevant stuff):

Dan;

I have fully explained to you what’s going on. Everything I’ve said in my posts is 100% true. You have no reason to believe otherwise. What you’re doing now is inappropriate and will help no one…

Why will you not give me a few days to get all of this done? I am not asking for weeks, just a few days… I’ve been in this business for years.

Please calm down and give me a few days. This will be handled.

Wid Bastian, Piece Of Shit

(I added that last part after his name)

A few days later, he stopped replying to all of us – and about 10 days after, that

we got an email saying his salary ate up all the fees and royalties.

Who could have seen that coming?

Oh, we did.

So, we’re going through the channels to stop this thievery, and you can help by reblogging, posting this on social media, etc., so whenever anyone does a search for Wid Bastian, this is what comes up. The courts and state Attorney Generals will do the rest, but sharing this info with your friends might keep them from wasting time and money with a thief.

BTW, I have not lost one bit of sleep over this. I gambled and lost, and I’ve sought legal representation to ensure Wid Bastian and Cameron Davis are stopped. So have at least 25 other victims of these assholes.

They get to lose sleep, not me.

How to show nervousness in a character

Dan Alatorre

Things you can see a character do when they are nervous (as in, show don’t tell).

1. Make a list and add them to your story

2. Keep the list handy when you need to replace an overused word or phrase.

It make crutch word removal slightly less mind-numbing.


Swallow hard

Sweat (a bead of sweat rolled down her neck)

Traveling fingers

Tapping toes

Fidgeting with your clothing

Knees knocking

Shift from one foot to the other

Tug at your collar

Sweat appears on your armpits

Tremble

Wet their pants

Hands are shaking

Glance around

Stammer

Use words like um, uh

Breathe hard

Inhale to calm your nerves

Panting

Gasp

Eyes go wide

Jaw/mouth hangs open

Look down

Look away

Avoid eye contact

Stare at the floor

Stare at the ceiling or wall

Purse your lips

Put a finger to your lip

Chew your lip

Possibly grit your teeth

Create a nervous habit like they rub their fingers together and have the same person do it when they are nervous

Run your hand through your hair

Wipe their hand across their face/mouth

 

Others (can’t see these but in a character’s POV they feel them)

Heart raced

Heart pounded

pulse throbbed in her ears

gut aches

stomach jolts

 

 

5 stars is NOT enough!

Format: Paperback

THE GAMMA SEQUENCE

I received this book for an honest review.

I can’t say it any better than the five star reviews.

The action reminded me of a Jason Bourne movie. In fact if this book were made into a movie I would be the first to buy a ticket.
The character development for even minor actors was excellent. The dialog pithy and believable. Some might say the plot borders on science fiction but it is closer to the truth than any would want to believe. Evil, greedy, power hungry people will take something scientists can use for good and pervert it. It touches on human trafficking and organ harvesting, both a reality already. Many exciting twists and turns. I could hardly put it down, even to sleep.

You WILL NOT be disappointed.

I was satisfied with the ending. Dan is now a new favorite author. Too bad I could only give 5 stars!!

80,400 words and 8 weeks later, TERMINAL SEQUENCE is complete!

Dan AlatorreOn November 22, 2019, at about 9am, I started work on Terminal Sequence.

Today, just over 8 weeks later, it is COMPLETE!

Terminal Sequence is complete but not finalized. I have to add a few lines here and there, proofread it, check it for crutch words, and send it to betas, but this is the completed story.
(I’ll start going through it tomorrow, making the necessary tweaks before asking you to read it.)
80k written 8 weeks, with time off for Christmas and a trip to the mountains, where I didn’t touch it (except for one day for about two hours  because I felt guilty for slacking off.)
TERMINAL SEQUENCE Ebook cover
If I subtract the week of vacation and at least a week around Christmas, it was written in about six weeks – but why would I subtract those weeks? They happened, and my mind was on the work, tweaking it mentally.
What’s next?
Should there be a 4th book in The Gamma Sequence series?
I have some short horror story collections you’ll be seeing first, while I think about it.
Stay tuned.
TRIO
