Well, this IDS worldwide seems to be a scam...


Lies about the amount of autos on 995ad.com. When investors were able to do a search on the site and the total cars shown were only 26,000 even though Downs claimed 550,000 plus, Downs reverse engineered his search mechanism so that a broad search was no longer possible.

Lies about dealers "signing up" to 995ad.com. Yet when dealers were phoned, they said they had never heard of 995ad.com and had either sold the auto in question and had never had the particular VIN number in stock that the site represented was in their inventory.

Bots used to generate fake traffic for 995ad.com. This isssue has become so serious that now IDWD investors have been encouraged to help this little fraud along by running bots from their own comps for Patrick. There's nothing like being given the chance to take part in a RICO conspiracy, huh?

Lies about the fishing lure. Downs claimed to have been making and marketing the lure for the company, but when the fishing lure company was phoned, they said he simply provided packaging (the little plastic tackle box) and that the lure was made in China.

Fake pictures of the Lahore Technical building that is supposedly the world HQ of the HLS division. The pic is simply an artist's rendering of something that does not exist at that address.

A cut and pasted website for IDWD that comes from the website of a Belloruse software company doing business in Germany. Downs was so sloppy he even left the number of employees the same as well as the entire FAQ. His only original work was replacing the name of IDS-Worldwide where the other company's name had been.

A forged IEEE award. No doubts here. The chair of the Awards committee for IEEE said the Downs scam was a fraud and the evidence is overwhelming that he wasn't just a IDWD basher lmao!

A fake pic of a Bangkok meeting that never took place. (complete with a play by play live report from Datatech at the fictitious meeting) Datatech was even reporting comments overheard from this meeting that never took place. The only honest explnation is that Datatech Downs "hears voices in his head" or that the entire thing was a scam. Come on Mr. FBI Analyst. Surely you can see this one. What exactly did the FBI have you analyzing anyway?

A joke of an inconsistent PR string about a mythical dividend. This one takes the cake. It is the stuff that penny stock scam lore is made of. I guess Down's idea is that if it worked one time, why not two or three? How many stock market mullets are there anyway? Maybe he should run the whole scam one more time out of fear he may have missed one or two of them. His most recent excuse for lack of details being that he is observing a "quiet period" is totally absurd and insane. After 15 PRs during this laughable quiet period, he suddenly goes mum when an investor says "are we getting cash, stock or bubble gum coupons"?

****** Trade with T/A * F ******
