Vince Brandt

This is regarding a legal case referred to by Mark Howe on his various websites. Mark Howe makes blatantly false claims about the case. Vince is a roulette system purchaser. Contrary to Mark’s false claims, Vince’s legal claim had NOTHING to do with the effectiveness of my system. Vince simply didn’t understand instructions to access my system’s software, so absurdly claimed it didn’t exist. Vince was extremely rude and vile in his emails to me, so I asked him to hire a mediator.  That way I didn’t need to put up with his abuse. So he did, and that’s what the case was. In the mediation, he couldn’t swear at me and I agreed to giving a refund. He never even used my system. Vince lost on all but one of his claims, so started another case, which was completely rejected by the judge. Full details are below.

For almost a month after being given access to my software, he didn’t contact me so I assumed he had no problems. Then he began sending me abusive emails claiming he didn’t understand the instructions. So I asked him to stop sending abusive emails and call me to resolve the issue, OR to hire a mediator. He continued to send abusive emails and refused to call me, so I insisted he hired a mediator which he eventually did.

Vince’s claims to the mediator were broad and absurd, including reimbursement for services he did not provide receipts for, and enormous fees for his “self-representation”. His only relevant claim was that he paid me for software that “does not exist”. His only proof of anything was a receipt for payment made to me.

I provided the mediation member with:

  • Login access and instructions for my software
  • Statements and contact details of players that use the software (with their permission)
  • Copies of all emails between Vince and myself

The mediation member clearly saw Vince’s claims were nonsense. Fortunately for Vince I was honest and explained to the mediator that Vince hadn’t actually used the software yet, and I could cancel his access anytime. So I agreed to give him a refund and considered the matter resolved. The result was formally released as a judgement, and this is what Mark Howe publishes on his website as if it were proof my technology is ineffective.

Vince didn’t accept almost all of his claims being rejected, so he initiated other precedings that failed. Shown below is the result of the latest case. I did not attend this hearing because his claims were so outrageous that I was sure his case would be rejected, which it was.

VCAT case dismissed
Vince’s dismissed case against me

So all that happened was:

1. Vince didn’t understand the software download instructions, and sent me abusive emails.

2. I asked Vince to call me personally so I can offer support, but to not send me abusive emails OR I will only communicate with him via a mediator (VCAT)

3. Vince ignored my request. He did not call me for help, and continued to send abusive emails.

4. I asked Vince to hire the VCAT mediator, which he did.

5. In mediation, Vince was forced to speak without abuse. I explained to the mediator that Vince had not accessed the software yet, and I agreed to provide a refund.

6. The result of the case was released via a letter, and Mark published the letter and lied about what actually happened.

7. All other claims by Vince were rejected, so he attempted another case. I did not even bother to attend the hearing because I knew he had no grounds for his claims, and that his case would fail, as it did.

Vince now appears obsessed with trying to harm me. He has made threats against myself and my extended family members, and even my two of my accountants that have nothing to do with this.

 

False Claims About This Matter

Mark Howe published his own version of these matters. Below are a few points:

 

Mark’s false claim: The FBI were involved, and it was a federal case in a court of law.

The truth: It was nothing even remotely “federal”. It was a civil mediator I asked Vince to hire because I wouldn’t tolerate his unjustified abuse, and knew he’d behave himself with a mediator. Read the correspondence between Vince and I below on this page.

Mark’s false claim: The courts found my business address to be falsified

The truth: Complete nonsense. My company address is publicly available in the ASIC database, and this is how I was notified about the hearing.

Mark’s false claim: A private investigator found that I was homeless and destitute with no money, and that in the hearing I was forced to admit this. I apparently told Vince I wouldn’t refund Vince even if I could afford it. And that the police seized some of my money from roulette scams.

The truth: There is not a shred of truth to this claim.

Mark’s false claim: My wife was included in the claim and was liable to pay half.

The truth: The document Mark published clearly states the “second respondent”, which is my corporation. The tribunal member specifically stated Vince had no valid claims against my wife or myself. My wife didn’t attend the hearing.

Mark’s false claim: He is leading a case of 50 people I apparently scammed

The truth: Mark has claimed this for many years but out of over 1,000 players I have had over the years, less than 10 have ever had a problem with my technology (through their own misunderstandings). Nevertheless, if such a “class action” occurred, many of my successful players would appreciate the opportunity to provide testimonies for both my non-electronic system and roulette computers, and I would gladly demonstrate my technology to any authority.

 

Correspondence Between Vince and Myself

The majority of emails from Vince contain vile threats of violence against my family and I, and foul language. It is not necessary to provide them all. Below are the most relevant emails between us so you can better understand why I insisted he hired a mediator:

NOTE: Red text is from Vince, and Blue is from myself, and Grey text is comments I added. Pay particular attention to the dates as Vince sent numerous emails on the same days.

Look dude I’m done with the clicking around, forms, wild goose chases, directions that don’t make sense, passwords that don’t work, etc. Your website is a fucking mess. Get me reasonable access to the spin software or send my money back. This process has been an absolute nightmare (which maybe you intended it to be this way so people would kind of give up?) Either way I don’t care. You said I would get software and I don’t have software, just a fucking headache dealing with your fucked up website. I would strongly recommend having an independent end to end review done of your website. (Have you ever been in someone’s house that really stinks but they don’t think it stinks because they’re so used to it). Need to hear from you asap.

NOTE: Vince did not understand the instructions and abused me for his misunderstandings.

From: Vince
To: Me

I sent my money on 3.7.13 and to date I still don’t have dick other than wasting a huge amount of time on fucked up websites, ebooks and nonsense. I had to wait over a week to get access to a fucked up ebook which is nothing more than a pointer to another website. Then you have to sign up on some fucked up forum and still don’t have access to the software. Then you click to links which tell you to submit a code but you don’t have the fucking code because you don’t have access to the fucking software.holy fucking shit.who designed this process some kind of fucked up retard? Fuck. I’ve never seen a more fucked up process in my whole life.what an absolute emotherfucling mess. OK I need my money back or immediate access to the software or I get out my toolbag and start to unload a fucking shitstorm.no more software bullshit.the software otr the money you fucking douchebag motherfucker

—————————– 5th April 2013 (all of below):

From: Me
To: Vince

Vince, after the unjustified abuse you’ve hurled at me, I would normally say I’m not dealing with you further and I’ll only communicate with you via a mediator. It is within my legal and moral rights to do this because nobody should take such abuse and threats. However, I’m asking that you call me and speak to me like a grown-up man. For my contact details, see www.genuinewinner.com/contact/ – this page also has details on the best times to call, my local time, when I’m available etc. Also see my blog for my schedule.

NOTE: When you are in contact with literally thousands of people, it is expected that sooner or later you’ll meet someone who is needlessly abusive. Nevertheless, I wanted to speak with Vince personally so he could hear my voice and understand I’m sincerely trying to help him, and there is no need for his behaviour.

From: Vince
To: Me

You think you’re gonna rip me off motherfucker with your fucking geek ass motherfucking IT fucked up website mother fucker you got another motherfucking thing coming motherfucker.I will fuck you up you fucking shit

From: Vince
To: Me

OK my Australian contacts are telling me they’ll have a line on your physical location in a few days. Go ahead and try and fuck with me and see what happens you little fucking jerkoff.

From: Me
To: Vince

Ok, officially now I’m asking you not to contact me again unless through a mediator. Any further direct contact from you will be considered harassment and may be reported to the police.

From: Vince
To: Me

You fucking little faggot. I better have my fucking money back immediately or I’m going to send you a fucking mediator you fucking faggot and he’ll mediate your fucking head you fucking jerkoff you better start looking over your shoulder motherfucker you think your gonna rip me off you have another mother fucking thing coming mother fucker..i will make it my lifes work to fuck you up..i will fuck you up

From: Vince
To: Me

Call the police you fucking faggot and give them my phone number so I can tell them how you’re ripping people off you fucking scumbag

From: Vince
To: Me

I got somebody coming out to Wellington St. to say hello motherfucker.better start watching your back motherfucker.we’ll have your house address shortly.If I were you I’d just simply send money back you stole from me or we’ll take it out of your fucking ass either way is fine with me fucking jerkoff..we’ll see you soon

NOTE: He is referring to the address of one of my accountants. He threatened this particular one on at least 2 occasions.

From: Vince
To: Me

Like my old boss used to say when someone wants to fuck us we’re going to reach out and fuck them. Good luck motherfucker.

 

Vince’s abuse continued for months and he is still attempting to take me to court with absurd claims that keep getting rejected. Although I did report his behavior to the Police, for now I requested they don’t proceed unless his behavior continues.

 

What about The “Official-looking Documents”?

Mark publishes a few other documents that look official. Copies are below with my comments:

a. Email from Mark Howe (using fake name) to Vince Brandt

Mark referred Vince to a “private investigator” on Craigslist. In fact the “private investigator” was Mark himself, and the below email is what he sent to Vince. Mark created the email himself while pretending to be a private investigator:

vince-craigslist

MY COMMENTS: These are the same rubbish claims Mark has made for years. There’s absolutely no truth at all to them. Mark initially claimed on his website that he hired a private investigator who found I was broke and living with my parents next to a homeless hostel. If you don’t believe he made these claims, I will gladly send you copies of his original websites. And if you really believe this utter nonsense, then God help you. Mark’s claims over the years have been absurd and wild.

b. Vince’s Email To VCAT

Below is Vince’s email to VCAT (the area in the red box).

vince-to-vcat

MY COMMENTS: Vince acted as if it was matter of national security. Do you really believe he spent the entire day on the phone with the US Embassy speaking with a Congressman? Do you really believe the FBI would be interested in a civil mediation case that has no relevance to criminal law? I’m the one who asked Vince to hire VCAT because he refused to stop swearing and threatening me. And why did he did this? Because he didn’t understand basic instructions. His emails are all here for you to read.

The thing that’s “official-looking” about it is it’s marked “URGENT”. Unfortunately I meet some strange characters, and Vince appeared delusional about many things. It was only by my honesty in the VCAT hearing that he received a refund, because he never actually used my system’s software. But even after the hearing, he started other cases which were rejected without me even attending the hearing. See the document of his rejected hearing.

c. Vince’s email to the Australian Embassy in the USA

vince-embassy

MY COMMENTS: Vince may as well emailed the President too. Remember that Vince’s claim was NOT that my roulette system didn’t work. His claim was that it “didn’t exist”. Why? Because he didn’t properly read the instructions. I even emailed him the LOGIN details and web address. I even showed them in the VCAT hearing and insisted we log in to show Vince had no idea. Vince also refers to the Rentech case (explained here) which he has no idea about. As for his claims about TV shows, I insisted to Vince that he have the TV show producers to contact me so I can publicly demonstrate my roulette systems and computers. It would have been a fantastic opportunity to prove a point. I often do public demonstrations, but unfortunately not yet on live TV.

  1. What I find amazing is how calm you were with him. You’re a better man than I and it I were you Id be ready to break my foot off his ass.

  2. Mathew, I tried to retain some dignity about it. If I was a teenager too, I would have responded with the same nonsense. Besides I’ve dealt with worse. Mark Howe takes the cake but I havent bothered explaining the details

  3. Im not sure how it could get much worse and I wouldnt blame it on his age. I know better behaved toddlers

  4. Believe me mark is far worse. A highlight reel:

    – contacting my wife and claiming to be a prostitute I apparently have sex with regularly, and that she has an STD, so my wife should be checked.

    – Contacting the neighbours of relatives (the entire street) with false claims about me and asking for any photos of me or any “dirt” on me.

    – Contacting my father-in-law claiming I sleep with prostitutes

    – Pretending to be my wife’s friend to get access to her facebook page

    – Deluded threats about having my house watched 24/7 by people he hired, with recorded video of my wife and I.

    – Claims that my wife’s business clients were poisoning her drinks, and that it was causing birth defects.

    – Incredible, unfathomable blatant lies and distortions of facts with extreme malicious intent.

    – Contacting me pretending to be a group of female strippers wanting to buy 10 roulette computers so they could quit the stripping industry.

    – Fabricating players of mine and giving false negative reviews throughout the internet, for which he is banned on forums like gambler’s glen.

    The list goes on and on. He is obsessed. Mark is truly a very sick person, you have no idea. Vince is just a boy with a potty mouth. Mark attacks his other competitors too, but its only natural to focus on the biggest target. One of my players put it this way: he suffers from raging jealousy. Although his problems go much deeper.

    I could waste weeks explaining everything he has tried. For a while I did expose every little thing, but what a waste of time. I have better things to do. So I just created this site, published the basics, take or leave it. I dont want to waste time explaining more of what these strange people do. If you have more direct questions about my technology, rather than what some person said about me, then please call me directly to discuss.

  5. LOL @ Vince is just a boy with a potty mouth ! ! ha ha ! !
    and ok if howe really did all that then I agree he is a sick man

  6. Steve, I just wanted to say I dont know how you stay so calm with these people. Youve explained everything very well and I believe you are an honest man.

    You are right, I believe these people really are sick. These emails from vince show a person with problems and if mark howe really did all that he should be in prison.

    What gets me is are you a magnet for trouble and idiots? I keep looking for something valid and relevant they have on you, but its all just hot air.

    1. After years of dealing with it, I’ve come to accept people can say anything they want. Some people are smart enough to actually research, and some people believe the first thing they read. Everything needed is on this site in detail. If it’s not enough for someone, nothing will be. Public demos, lab test reports, even free trials. And yes mark really did all that, and more.

  7. If those emails from vince are for real, I feel sorry for you for having to deal with him. When researching you I read that there was some fbi federal case against you and you were being sued. But now after reading this I see how mark howe twisted everything and showed his true colors. To your credit considering vince’s behaviour, you acted fairly and honourably.

  8. Hey Steve if I were you I wouldnt have wanted to take his (vinces) abuse either although I would have just6 give the refund to shut him up instead of bothering with mediation services. I guess maybe you wanted to teach him a lesson about being a “pootty mouth?? I first saw Howe’s websites saying you had been sued and it looked pretty damaging. Thankyou for clearing it up. You might be pleased to hear that having seen more of the story now I know Mark is not an honest person so would never buy anything from him.
