FROM THE "BIG HOUSE" TO THE HALFWAY HOUSE...TO A BEDROOM IN YOUR HOUSE?: The Roommate From Hell?
Just like morel mushrooms after a warm spring rain, look what's popped up on Craigslist under "Las Vegas housing"—a post by David R. Damante.
Damante, who also uses the name "Robert Damante", is looking to rent a room.
But not just any old room.
Damante requires "amenities like pool spa and yard", and the room must be in a home and not an apartment.
Pretty picky for a guy who's just about to be released from a Las Vegas halfway house after a stint in federal prison. (In his post, David Damante/Robert Damante stretches the truth until it nearly snaps back, making the deceptive claim that he's only "recently relocated to Vegas".)
Oh, and he'd prefer to "only live with a female if possible".
In January 2009, Robert Buckhannon's Arcanum Equity Fund wired $1,000,000 to a corporation owned by Damante. And even though Damante served time in a federal prison for wire fraud, and currently resides in a Las Vegas halfway house located at 2901 Industrial Avenue, he's recently started a "business" purporting to sell a product he calls Energy 2Go/Whey 2 Go Protein Powder.
In addition, a "Robert Damante" registered the company's domain name (whey2gousa.com) on February 24, 2015 using the 2901 Industrial Avenue address as its corporate headquarters location.
But that hasn't stopped David Damante/Robert Damante from making the specious claim (debunked on this blog) that Walmart is "on a waiting list" and "making an offer" to expedite shipment of his likely non-existent product, Whey 2 Go Protein Powder.
Here's a screen capture of the post, with David R. Damante's boast "My company so you can see I am real."
Yeah, real bad!
