It was a long time coming. Congrats to the detectives, charities, and raffle participants for cooperating.

It's too bad that it had to come to something like this, but probably long overdue.

In what sense or over what time period?

See if it makes the local TV news Miles, and if so record it if you can.

Not entirely. There's still the trial which I think will have more surprises.

The time period. I get the sense of people waiting for promises delivered... someday.

Thank God, finally. I almost jumped on the AV123 Xmas special, but I waited until this month and went with Aperion. After reading up on this scumbag I am glad I did.

Should be interesting to see what comes to surface during the trial.


I'm interested in seeing if AV123 ...or anyone other than Mark at AV123, we're involved in all of this. For a long time people have been desperately trying to catagorize Mark as a seperate entity from AV123. As if his actions were not at all representitve of AV123...in any way tied in with AV123.


Should be interesting to see who knew what and who permitted it to continue to occur; at AV123. I know the water is quite murky and convoluted when trying to determine the distinctions. But in my own personal opinion, based on nothing but gut-feeling and instinct; I suspect the mud is piled real thick and real deep.

Schifter will get his hand slapped. He will have no money left after he pays his lawyer fees.


My former attorney got 3 years in the slammer, but he stole $17,000,000 plus or minus $180,000 or so with no defense of his actions. At least my former attorney did not have to pay for a lawyer!

Why would you pick an obvious scum bag like that to be your lawyer? Not sure that I would tell anybody.

I'm glad to see this finally came about. Of course indictment and conviction are two entirely different things but I wonder how long AV321 will be in business at this point. I also wonder how many of the apologists will come out now and condemn Schifty. Where's that former employee that maintained MLS was just "misunderstood?" lol.

The law is tougher on those that steal from charities than those that steal from sleaze merchants. With the clientele your lawyer was dealing with(er stealing from) I'm not sure I'd be proclaiming him publicly as my attorney.
