Colorado State Secretary of State Records disclose what could be considered an active and unusual pattern of incorporation of businesses for John Giduck

Foreign Threat Assessment Center, Inc is DBA Archangel Group

IRS Form 990s for the Archangel Group while they were a non-profit. They no longer appear as a non-profit on the IRS website.

Foreign Threat Assessment center has a 403B tax advantaged plan

At least one of Mr. John Giduck's companies advertise adventure training at secret russian military bases

Giduck appears to be donating money between his own non-profits without acknowledging any relationship to tax authorities


JOHN GIDUCK's SEEMINGLY INCESTUOUS BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS WITH FRIENDS

Follow the money among the friends John Giduck, Dick Caster, Walter D. Chi, and Joseph Bail

Richard "Dick" Caster

Mr Giduck was a past Board Member, National Association of School Resource Officers (Note the "Lifetime Executive Member, British Professional Bodyguard Association" as well)

Richard "Dick" Caster previously served as Executive Director, National Association of School Resource Officers

Dick Caster writes reviews for John Giduck's books but doesn't appear to have any operational or tactical counter terrorist qualifications

Shari Nicoletti

Shari Nicoletti contacting people and asking them if they are members here and telling them "there's a lawsuit"

Shari Nicoletti gives positive reviews to Mr Giduck's book

Shari gives a bunch of positive reviews to Mr. Giduck's books

Joseph "Joe" Bail

Major Joe Bail starts the Dive Search and Rescue Team and the Tactical Dive Team for the Chester, PA Police Department

Joe Bail may be overstating his credentials in CT/AT - Part 2

Joe Bail may be overstating his credentials in CT/AT - Part 3

Joseph Bail may be overstating his participation at Beslan

Joe Bail seems to omit the Concord Senior Citizen's Center from his list of those to whom he has lectured on antiterrorism and Beslan (this event apparently also included lovely desserts that were noteworthy enough to include in the article)


SGM John "Andy" Anderson (ret.)

John "Andy" Anderson states that his close friend, Mr. Giduck, does not come from a military background but his mind is superior to the "vast majority" of experienced Special Forces members regarding unconventional tactics and terrorism


SGM John "Andy" Anderson was compensated an unknown amount by Giduck's Archangel Group in 2007


SGM Anderson's and John Giduck's claims that US SOF units have adopted their techniques are doubtful

Evidence that John Giduck never was a skydiving instructor

John Giduck does not appear in any recognized list of USA National Champion Weight lifters

Mr. Giduck removed Professional SAS Bodyguard Association from previous claims

No evidence of Mr. Giduck being inducted into multiple Martial Arts halls of fame

Evidence that Mr. Giduck completely owns the World Federation of Russian Martial Arts so any hall of fame claims there would be suspect

Inductions to Martial Arts halls of fame are generally "pay for play"

Ridiculous "Certified Master Antiterrorism Specialist and Terrorologist" claims


MR GIDUCK'S THREATS AGAINST SOCNET

Summary of the original threat

same law firm that initially sent SOCNET the threat of legal action is the same one that acts as his legal rep for incorporating different businesses including Michele Berdinis Fagin
