An American spelling defense with a "c"?

Reminds me of Jax Desmond...Google shows he apparently has a bunch of different maritime security related sites and claims to be CEO at each site. When challenged, he apparently played the lawyer card.

There is this comment (which I'm to lazy to verify)
Quote:
Neither of the companies are registered in Florida, the address is a crappy little house in Delray Beach and none of the branches of the U.S. Military have any record of anyone of that name having served.
Quote:
This guy is actually from Israel and together with his brother owned Bowline Defence. Then he appeared with Armed-Piracy-Defence Inc. When he saw that he couldn't get a transit he returned again with Marsec union.
He is saying that he has escort patrol vessels and also floating armories..
Both quotes are from http://www.closeprotectionworld.com/...sec-union.html where you can also read the good LT's response and the response to the LT's response. Both will have you belly laughing...

Caveat Emptor...

The skype address at the bottom of the page leads to a David Rachimi. LinkedIn profile here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidrachimi

Reading his LinkedIn profile, I would have guessed him to be a Nigerian prince.

I actually thought that might be the case but didn't address that with only a vague thought of "maybe he is" behind it. He wouldn't be the first guy trying to sell "anti-terror expertise" in the states under that flag.
