With the aid of [censored], Jeff Busby posted the following message on alt.magic. The claims that he makes in it are entirely without basis. Not a single person that I know of who has written anything here on the Genii Forum has been sued, or contacted by any attorney and threatened with suit. Please note that as the sole owner of the Genii Forum, that NO ONE has contacted me as Busby claims. Nothing unusual going on here, except in Busby's nightmares.
Here is Busby's message:
Dear Magic Friend:
It's very interesting to check and record NOW what the GENII "forum" is doing. As you must be aware, this forum run by Kaufman and Racherbaumer
made me a "special case." They openly stated ANYONE could libel me -- no matter how outrageously -- there.
If you check the forum, you will not only find that said by Racherbaumer, but encouragement of falsehoods by Kaufman, Racherbaumer, Farmer, Sisti, Biro, and many, many others. In the background, lending as much credence
to the lies as possible, you will find Jim Riser, and Dick Hatch and several others.
Only occasionally you will find something like, "Of course, I really don't know him, and I have actually never dealt with his company." This is
usually followed by this person -- whom I have never dealt with at all -- with a variety of outrageous things.
Many times, they get their "out" on ANOTHER forum that Kaufman and Racherbaumer do NOT control. Then you will find them admitting they have never done any business with me, but I MUST be a real bastard because they heard so from "reliable sources." Regrettably, those sources ARE reliable, but reliable only in the way I warned eBay: they will reliably tell untruths consistently.
What is shocking is this: These people have OPENLY wished I would die several times.
Regrettably, they are doing this, and have been up to this mischief, while I have been seriously ill. They KNOW IT, but instead prefer to cover it up.
That information has been deliberately suppressed on the GENII forum. If a participant mentioned they had dealt reliably with me and that I was
square with them, one of two things happened: (1) that participant vanished INSTANTLY from the GENII forum, and was then permanently barred, or (2) the truth was sloughed off by Kaufman as MY FABRICATION.
Only in the past few days has eBay taken to heart my advice the participants in the GENII forum were exacerbating the problem. The head attorney was on the GENII forum. We warned him to check these people out and make them make statements under penalty of perjury. He didn't do that.
He is following a course of tactics attempting to scare us by throwing a huge lawsuit at us, egged on by every one of those mentioned above.
I think that's a bad approach, since he has harmed us greatly by NOT asking for sworn facts, but instead relying on the opinions of all the
people noted above. And, not one of those opinions has been sworn ... or is true,
Additionally, I have boxes -- literally boxes -- of evidence -- including cancelled checks to Paul Fox's daughter and Danny Dew -- that I have done
what I said, and OWN the rights that I have stated under oath. I have many more statements, letters and cancelled checks from the people I named
It's funny how agreements change when money is waved again, long after you got paid. We told eBay to kook at all our files on ALL these people and
determine the truth themselves. Instead, the GENII forum bombarded eBay with falsehoods. However, if you check you will find we are NOT on eBay,
but it is NOT because of what people on the GENII forum say ...
In contrast to what I've said all along, we have a group of people known to lie, fabricate and tell stories without a shred of anything to back it
up to deliberately harm someone.
What you may have noticed is this: Immediately when eBay was put on notice of their misbehaviour about a week ago, suddenly the libel on GENII
started toning down, and the people mentioned above became quiet ON THAT FORUM. But check back and see what they WERE saying. As well, check them
out on OTHER FORUMS.
As you may also know, the GENII forum DELIBERATELY suppressed ANYONE who had anything nice to say about me of my business before NOW. As mentioned,
we warned eBay about the deliberate misperception the GENII forum was creating. However, they simply encouraged this misbehaviour and KNEW IT.
Suddenly, there's a lawsuit. And what you see is this: People who were trashing me just a few days ago on that forum are now grudgingly saying
mildly nice things about me and my products. I think you don't need to be a genius to realize they've, again, been warned by eBay about their past bad behaviour and how it is not only provable, but false, and they will be
held accountable for it.
As noted, you may want to check the GENII forum to see if what I've said is true, if those earlier statements haven't vanished. Then you may get a
laugh realizing they've been warned by eBay to change their behavior. Too late. When it happened we did record it all, and the evidence is already
Yes, magic "was" a minor variety art. Many of my friends don't take it seriously. However, it IS WHAT I DO TO MAKE A LIVING. It is NOT a hobby or
a pastime for me. It is my business. Take what I say in that light.
In any case, I did think you might be interested in seeing this misbehaviour for yourself.
Sorry, but I can't write you personally now. It has been difficult enough to deal with the serious problems this group causes. Just remember -- we
did not create them. Thanks for your support and help.
Okay (RK here again, back from the land of Oz, where the world has been turned topsy-turvy). We can all see that Busby is nuts, and would rival any Russian disinformation master at spreading lies and propaganda. I have reprinted his posting from alt.magic in its entirety just so we can simply prove the falsehood of his statements. Ready?
If you have any complaints about Jeff Busby Magic or Jeff Busby, please post them now. If you wish to compliment anything you've purchased from him, please post it now. By posting both of these items we shall show what an utter liar he is: I do NOT delete or edit posts that praise his products, and we have NOT been threatened with any lawsuits and we shall continue to condemn his thievery whenever it is true.
Jeff Busby is a crook: I paid money for subscriptions to "Epoptica" and "Arcane" and never received a SINGLE ISSUE. Not one, and I never received a refund.
Jeff Busby is a crook: I paid for a subscription to the "Braue Notebooks" which stated that I would receive about 15 installments over a specified period which I believe was 18 months. I received 8 installments over a period of the last decade! I have never received a refund on the balance of my money.
The rest, folks, is up to you. Please contribute to this thread and we shall quite simply show everyone that Busby is lying (as usual). :)
