This is fucked up. Apologies if I'm mistaken, but it looks like The Jakarta Post is allowing people to post adverts using the same font as their regular text, in a box so it looks like an article. There ought to be a different (non house style) font and a little note that it's a paid advert.

This is auful. You take the good name of an honest businessman just trying to earn a living and wipe it in the dirt.
Still I'm sure that he will sue you for every penny you have and you will stop slandering this poor man.

I'm sure that he is nothing to do with this bloke. grin

ert Ho and Carol Comeau weren't pleased to learn that Barry Bellefontaine, a Honolulu investment adviser who took their money and skipped town nearly 12 years ago, is now selling luxury homes in Bali, Indonesia, and serving as president of the local tennis club.

After Bellefontaine and his wife sailed off in a 50-foot-yacht in July 1995, his investment company went belly-up, owing $4.2 million to Ho, Comeau and about 90 other investors and creditors.

Very sorry. I was:

Pissed at the time
High on illegal something
Shagging
thinking about shagging
looking at a sheep and the one above.

Listen Mr I'm a friggin DJ. I'll have you know that neither I, nor my attorneys, take kindly to your using unsubstantiated claims to defame me. I'll have you know that i was cleared, in absentia, of any wrongdoing in Hawaii and am a simple man trying to forge a living in peace in Bali. I don't feel it necessary to rake up mud about you or anyone else. Believe me, this website, its administrators and even its casual users are NOT immune to actions (legal and otherwise) that i might choose to take. Once again, lay off me all. And for those who can see through all this petty backstabbing bullshit initiated against me on this site, feel free to send me a private message should you want any information about property in Bali.

Very cute use of the word 'obtain' in the advert above: "...new legal methods for foreigners to obtain Bali properties". Treading a fairly fine line with bullshit there, seeing as how Indonesian law clearly prohibits foreigners obtaining property here.

Please feel free to post some proof of your non-involvement in the loss of people's investments.

Not sure we need to be worried about legal threats from a man who can't even spell "attorney". But go ahead and have a try, I'm sure my colleagues in the Supreme Court would enjoy hearing your case.

Ah, we're being wound up are we? I suppose his appearance online was too good to be true, no-one could be that big an idiot. Nor use that picture of themselves.

Look. I'm the first to admit that the post quoted above was written in anger and was wholly inappropraite. Unlike many others, I'm very quick to acknowledge my mistakes. But take it from me, the essence of that post is completely true.

As for this, I cannot see what problem there is with my spelling but it is this kind of petty issue which is pretty typical of people on this website. A bit of a mob mentality I'd say. Has anyone taken a step back, done a bit of research and formed a considered opinion. No, it's more like 'here's a successful guy. Let's go after him'. Pretty shallow gentlemen.
Also, i feel no need to furnish any of you with any proof of involvement, non-involvement or otherwise as regards to my life and business dealings. The burden of proof does not lie with me. You Sir, feel free to publish any proof you discover against me. I'm living and working here quite legitimately and you are welcome to investigate that. As for your threat about the supreme court justices. I feel this is fancy thinking on you part. A foreigner here, who considers them his 'colleagues'. Tell it to the next sucker.
