    Wait, Evosport is harassing your father over this? Are you joking?

    "Um hello Mr. Sticky, your son is making us look bad because we failed to deliver over $250,000 in product last year and also incurred $300,000 in debt."

    WTF?

    I guess if Sticky goes missing we know who to target.

    My respect for all persons involved with Evosport is increasing by the day. This is so completely low and pathetic.

    Exactly, and they need to start taking responsibility for their own issues instead of closing, banning, deleting, and threatening.

    Roger that.

    Maybe they should be spending their time resolving orders and their debt rather than worrying about my site? It would seem misplaced priorities are what led to this mess in the first place.

    I've seen it happen in a couple of states. Here in California, you can even have the Sheriff collect money from their bank account or if they use a cash register, the Sheriff could perform a till tap or you could request that the Sheriff stay at the business for up to 8 hours in order to collect your money. There are a bunch of services, but they do cost money to utilize.

    An person doesn't ever have to have representation in any court. It's called a pro se litigant. many times people go pro se in small claims courts, but I am not aware of any that restrict representation, as that's a fundamental right.

    This keeps getting more and more strange.... so do they actually think that your father owns or operates the site? I would've thought they'd come after you personally or maybe your car if they have connections to some of the suppliers you're dealing with.

    Really trying to not comment on this as much as possible which is difficult given Evosport's and MBWorld's history with MHP but that is just pathetic. Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves, or already have.

    Sorry to hear about this Joe, doesn't really surprise me though.

    They have nothing, so they are just reaching for whatever they can in desperation. I received similar threats from ESS and called their bluff, they ran away with their tail between their legs.

    They have no connections to anyone dealing with my vehicle.

    We'll see, I'm thinking about how to proceed. Personally, I would have just been happy to see them take care of their customers, fulfill their back orders, pay off their debts including JRCART, but since they are threatening my family and I looks like I will have to have my father contact the Police as well as expose what they are doing. Just petty and vindictive people whose arrogance seems to know no bounds. If they think they can do whatever they want and cover up the truth they are sorely mistaken. There still are people with courage and integrity in this country.

    Jalopnik picks up on BenzBoost story regarding Evosport and Evosport threatens legal action

    One of the largest auto blogs on the net, Jalopnik, has been monitoring our story with Evosport. Things have gotten very heated as of late when Evosport had their attorney, Todd Serota, threaten my father as well as myself with legal action. BenzBoost was given a deadline and told to pull down the articles, looks like we missed it.

    BenzBoost finds Evosport's tactics of covering this story up and threatening us with legal action just rather sad. Instead of going about this professionally, Evosport has been closing threads on MBworld and deleting any mention of it. Since they can not do that on BenzBoost, they have sent their attack dog lawyers after us in an attempt to control things here as well.

    We will not be intimidated or budge from doing what is in our users and the consumers best interest. Consumer advocacy is something we need more of, not less. Mr. Serota, people like you are the problem in this country trying to keep the truth hidden and not having the integrity to do what is right. BenzBoost had the courage to reveal the details of what was taking place and did so accurately. Amazingly, you reached the wrong conclusion but we would not be surprised you would jump to whatever conclusion your clients would want you to jump to.

    You have done the opposite of quieting this down, only making major blogs take notice of it. Aren't you only digging the hole deeper for your own clients? BenzBoost is not afraid of you and not all that impressed with your scare tactics. Plus, aren't you a patent lawyer? Maybe you should stick to that as we can write a much harsher letter than what you provided.

    Also, threatening my 73 old year old father is flat out despicable. We are saddened that Evosport seems to endorse harassing senior and retired family members over forum posts they can not control. This does not reflect well on any company and does not reflect well on you as an attorney. If people wonder why attorneys get a bad name, it is due to actions such as this.

    At this point, it should be clear to you it is impossible to get this story removed as you have now served to propagate it. Well done Evosport and well done Mr. Serota. In our opinion, you have completely mis-managed this situation. Good luck prosecuting the entire internet, it does not seem the Evosport budget will allow for it.

    We have posted the legal documents Jalopnik obtained aimed at BenzBoost here, you can all review them for yourselves and see the lengths Evosport is willing to go to keep the truth from users on MBworld as well as consumers. BenzBoost will continue to do investigative reporting in the best interest of our users and all individuals in the German automotive performance industry.

    LOL, wtf is this?

    Serota also said Mr. Wilk has a prior relationship with Evosport and "pretty much threatened" them while trying obtain something for the company
    Uh, I was a good customer and paid them quite well. Threatened them with what for what? Obtain what? I haven't done business with them in years.

    I have no idea what is wrong with them, look at this crap:

    Update: We've been contacted by Evosport's counsel, Todd Serota, who says the company believes the claims are false and will pursue legal action against BenzBoost and its owner Joseph Wilk.

    "Mr. Wilke has published information about Evosport that is clearly false and Evosport has tried to resolve it the easy way by asking him to take it down. He has not. Evosport feels they have no choice because it is hurting them…"
    How am I hurting them and how are the claims false? By stating the fact is they haven't delivered parts to people? How many guys have come out and said they have been waiting for their parts for months on end? Didn't JRCART state everything was true? Don't their own documents show they have hundreds of thousands of debt? Aren't they trying to get investors due to this?

    What is their problem? They need to deal with their issues and not blame me for everything.
