Dispute Settled

I got a signed copy of the settlement agreement yesterday. Since I made it specifically clear I would not agree to anything that requires confidentiality, I can share it. This is what it ended up being...
  • I get my money back that was levied ($6,858.94).

  • Cavalry agrees to pay for my attorney fees ($3,000).

  • Winn and Sims gets ownership of the winnandsims.com domain (but not the content).

  • Any future disputes between us will be resolved in San Diego (rather than Van Nuys).
So what it basically comes down to is I get all my money back, plus my attorney fees, but then I'm out $8 for the cost of the domain.

Shawn,

You're obviously a no-talent asshole who more than likely is wasting Mommy & Daddy's money and everyone's time on things like this. You know nothing about business (obviously from your posts). Why don't you get a life? Better yet, just drop dead and leave everyone else alone. It's unfortunate that cyberspace is so big, otherwise, crap on the web like this would be banned. Fuck off and stay there....dick.

Did you actually read the whole site? :)

Awwwww, is Mr Winn & Mr Sims getting a little pissy? Gee...I wonder who left that comment above (insert sarcasm here)?! *Really* professional guys. Hilarious!

No Vicious, I am not affiliated with Winn & Sims. Are you this assholes sister or something? I mean he's gay right? So having a wife is out of the question. You are as equally pathetic as him. You for sure no absolutely nothing about business and about reality from your posts. Jump on another band wagon sweetheart, this one is going nowhere.

Shawn said...

Wow... you were actually right Vicious... it *is* Winn and Sims. Check the IP address... If you resolve the IP address the Anonymous user posted from, it resolves to www.winnsims.com (66.121.62.50). Too funny.

Yelena said...

Huh, Winn and Sims to be lowering their business etiquette even more..

..Shawn never managed to go to school - school (especially law school) was too expensive and unnessary for him (see www.digitalpoint.com) but his written language seems to be very profesional and also "swear" free.. unlike "some" lawyers'..

robinq said...

I am always the last to know:

1) I didn't know Shawn was gay. (Sorry, Yelena)

2) And I thought Shawn WENT to school. I should have known better.

3) Vicious is pathetic? Why does everyone want to be her then?

4) Shawn wasted his mom and dad's money! That bitch never gave him any! And his dad never had any. I am surprised he never tried to divorce his parents!

5) Attorneys use very fowl language.

6) Neither Shawn or Vicious know anything about business?!?!?! They should both turn over their successful businesses to me so I can quit working for a lame corporation because I am smarter.

7) I would have never have expected a lawyer to know so little about technology as to risk a slander lawsuit.

NewComputer said...

Ahhh, Shawn, nice work with the IP. Way to show them that you know nothing about nothing. I tell you, these clowns are just too freaking funny. Hey, Whiney and Simple, take your lumps like men. Stick to what you know and stay away from the technology side of things. People can track you everywhere you go online. Shawn proved it was you withing a matter of seconds. Now that you have been caught, you should apologize.

If I was Shawn, or an American, I would use those log files and your post to sue you for defamation of character, which is (and this is to help you W&S, because you OBVIOUSLY need it) is written or spoken injury to a person or their business.

I would say that Shawn has just found out more information about your business...

Lance Powers said...

WOW! I just read thru this entire page and finally busted out laughing at this thread. Who are these jackass lawyers that are so stupid they slander people on their own weblogs? Hey winn and simp - I wouldn't want you defending me! You got 0wn3d! Mommy & Daddy's money just made a fool of your 'i no business ass'.

SummerG said...

Wow, that was quite amusing. Sounds like they were unveiled in the end, my advice, SUE THEIR PANTS OFF, if not for you then for us Americans who deal with these kinds of Dick Heads all day. I'm currently being harassed by a debt collector who every time I call tells me I'm trash and I need to pay my bills. I do not need this kind of bashing and nether do you!!! You go man!!

Anonymous said...

I hope you do sue their ass off. I was just referred to this Blog by a post on the Bud Hibbs site - consumer advocate against jerks like these... I think their post and the fact they got nailed is hilarious - and I would love to hear of any new developments. Rock on Shawn!

you guys should know that EVERY transation on the internet leaves a "Fingerprint"im glad you found that one there are more if you look.

j2rev said...

I just received an automated phone call from a law firm ( not sure if I heard it Winn and sims) telling me to call back at this number:

(714) 388-3080

I don't know what this is about, and I am afraid to return the call based on what other people posted on these blogs

I left the same comment on the "background" issue:

Shawn,

I am an attorney in San Francisco representing a couple who had a debt go from 10k to >28k after a default judgment was entered.

I am interested in hearing more about your case, particularly the default judgment.

shawnslame said...

Curious to why my post from the other night was removed? Do you only allow pro-shawn comments or what? Seeing what youre like as an adult gives me an idea of what you were like as a kid, sad, you were one of THOSE kids. Southern Ca. pretentious fools. Your tricks & trinkets are old hat. There are laws against publicly posting individuals i.p addresses. Its cool to show or shall I say advertise your i.t tricks, but just imagine what the silent are doing, now as we speak. Be nice. Life is short, enjoy it while you can.

Shawn said...

There are no laws against posting someone's IP address. I don't have a privacy policy on this site that people agreed to.

Also, I didn't delete any posts. Maybe you forgot to hit submit or posted it on another entry. {shrug}

Monks said...

hmmm....I wish I were a no-talent a$$hole. They have lots of fun, drive cool cars and have better things to worry about than their parents money...their own.

Bondat said...

Shawn you should register your domains with a promo code so that you will only lost $6.96 or lower. Not $8. :D heh

Obviously what this whole debacle boils down to shawn is that you were in irresponsible low life who wasn't responsible with his finances. The fact that your debt even ended up in the offices at winn and sims means that your loser ass had to have gone through a series of collection agencies who you managed to dodge and avoid paying, which is what led to winn and sims doing their job in pursuing litigation against you for not paying your debts. You may think that you've out smarted them by getting your money back, but in reality you're not. The agony and stress that winn and sims caused you by levying your bank account, despite having to release the funds back to you because of your so called "dispute" is probably satisfaction enough for them. Besides if you actually had that much money in your bank account to begin with, you should have paid it off prior to them taking your ass to court and getting their judgement against you. Word of advice, next time you get a bill, pay it and you'll avoid having to ever here from a debt collector again, let alone be sued for being irresponsible with your finances.

If they are so eager to take my money, how come they never answer the phone to take a payment not will they send a statement saying what you owe them?
