If you want to see his main Los Angeles murals, here's a nice easy route. This omits The Word and The Freeway Lady which are farther away and the murals destroyed on the freeways. It starts in the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles and ends in Hollywood. This is the most driving effective route. Nice places to eat on either end. You can add in Bob Hope Patriotic Hall but call for their hours.

Who is Vishal Garg of Better.com, Better Mortgage? Father Chand, Mother, Brother Vikas, manhole covers from India, by Mary Cummins


Vishal Garg of Better Mortgage better.com was born in Rajasthan, India about 1978. I have the exact birth dates but I'm not posting them even though they're public. I'm only posting public information. Vishal Garg is a public figure. These are issues of public concern. He moved with his mother, father and brother to New York as a child. 

Vishal Garg's father is Chand Prakash Garg born about 1952 in India. Chand Garg is a mechanical engineer per his LinkedIn page. He attended the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, PGDM ( MBA ), Strategic Planning, PGDM ( MBA ) 1974 - 1976 and the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, BE ( Hons ), Mechanical Engineering, BE ( Hons ), Mechanical Engineering, 1968 - 1973. 

Chand Garg owns and operates Global Business Inc out of his home in Forest Hills, New York. GBI is in the "construction business." Chand Garg works with R B AGARWALLA & CO. making, selling manhole covers. There have been many articles an even a documentary about Indian made manhole covers which are used widely in New York and other states in the US. There is a photo from 2003 of Chand proudly holding a design for a manhole cover. The rest of the article is basically about Chand and the company bragging about basically using super cheap almost slave labor with little to no safety or environmental regulations to make lots of money.

Chand Garg was quoted in the following 2003 article ("The Ironcast System," S Mitra Kalita, Newsday, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, Monday, January 20, 2003) about why the US buys manhole covers from India. It's because of cheap labor, cheap supplies, little to no safety/environmental regulations and profits.

"We pay these people $1 per day for eight hours," said B.N. Agarwal, senior partner of R.B. Agarwalla in Calcutta, which exports manhole covers. "Their cost in the U.S. is $24 per hour. The advantage of India is only labor." New York City is R.B. Agarwalla's largest contract, worth about $2 million annually. Most foundries bid through U.S.-based contractors, and the family-run Agarwalla's middleman works from his home in Forest Hills.

Chand Garg rises each day at 6 a.m. to catch his clients in India before they leave for the day. Folders stuffed with designs for manhole covers, valve boxes and water hydrants fill Garg's second-floor office. He says he has formed close relationships with the staff of the city's Department of Environmental Protection, which is in charge of the city's manhole covers. Like Garg, many DEP staffers have a background in engineering. And like Garg, many are Indian. The same can be said for the dozen or so middlemen like Garg who operate throughout the United States bidding on contracts and then placing orders with foundries in India.

"We know each other but we don't talk to each other," he said. "We are competing. Sometimes we lose the bids for $100 on a million-dollar contract."

Manhole cover costs vary by weight, and New York City's current specifications call for them to be 27 inches in diameter, the cover to weigh 195 pounds and the frame to weight 345 pounds. Garg said Indian foundries often charge 24 cents per pound, while their American counterparts charge 50 cents per pound."

The manhole covers are built in Howrah, India in foundries. These foundries were set up during the 1800's by the British colonialists during their occupation of India. There's very little safety regulations in the foundries. They emit huge quantities of smoke and pollutants. 

A New York Times article "New York Manhole Covers Forged Barefoot in India" exposed the dangers and harsh working conditions in the foundries. There is little to no safety equipment. Instead of machinery and forklifts the barefoot men lift and carry the heavy manhole covers. The working conditions were so shocking that they've since been investigated. There's a documentary film called "Cast in India (trailer)." Many of these workers are maimed or killed making manhole covers. 

This explains a lot about Vishal Garg who thinks his employees are lazy and never work hard enough for him. This is why he's always grinding contractors and business associates. His father clearly taught him that it's good to abuse and take advantage of  employees and business associates in the name of profits and money. That's clearly all Vishal Garg cares about. 

I had to find this information through newspapers.com. All mention of Chand Garg and the manhole covers was erased from the same articles on the internet. His name, name of his business are available on the internet. 

Chand Garg self identifies as Southeast Asian, Hindu, language Hindi. He lists his business category as "metal services" "wholesale." He's registered to vote in New York. He lives in a 2.5 story home in Forest Hills, New York. Home is 2,549-3,200 sf, 5 bed, 4 bath, two kitchens so maybe a guest house, estimate $1.6-1.8M and tax assessed at over $1,000,000 built 1910. He bought it for $472K in 1992 then listed it for sale for $2.5-$2.6M recently then removed the listing. Sounds over priced. Based on the photos he posted when he listed his house his parents appear to be religious Hindu. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/7743-Kew-Forest-Ln_Flushing_NY_11375_M47524-40979

Vishal's mother is Manju. His brother is Vikas C Garg born about 1980. Vikas is involved in abillionveg abillion.com. His main job seems to be venture funding for his own business. "I spent most of my career working in Wall Street, finance, trading and hedge funds. I even worked for the U.S. government for a few years and helped them manage money. I had this whole career separately outside of my social values. It was this career that brought me to Singapore six years ago." 

Vishal talking about his youth. "Yes. My mom, dad, brother and I moved to New York City when I was five, so I was a minority student in the public school system. I was fortunate to have my father, a math genius, coach me in the subject: he and I spent many summers on his office floor learning math from old Indian textbooks." 

It appears abillionveg now called just abillion wants to raise funds for their app which just hosts reviews of vegan products made by other people. He hooked up with a tech guy to create the business just like Vishal and Khan. Maybe he's copying his brother's business model of raising funds for a business then keeping as much money for himself. The abillionveg Facebook page is gone. I've been vegan forever. In the last 5-10 years so many people just use veganism to raise venture funds. They don't even intend for the company to be successful or even operational. 

Vishal is married to Sonia Alexander Palmieri Li who was born in Los Angeles. Her father was an Asian mathematician, statistician maybe from Hawaii who died in 2013. Her mother is Dr Deborah Anne Palmieri born in Massachusetts who specializes in Russian business. She's of Italian descent. 

In 2009 Vishal Garg married Sarita M James in New York. She was born about 1976. Her father is Dr Thekkumkattil Devasia James a medical doctor from India. Her mother is Dr Pushpom James also a medical doctor. Lots of education, degrees and intelligence in these families. Sadly making money at the expense of other people seems to be their goal.

Who is Dealio Lockhart charged with three murders in fiery crash after racing on 5 freeway in Los Angeles, California

Dealio Lockhart, car racing, crash, accident, dead, injured, los angeles, california, whittier, dodge,charger, challenger, mary cummins, prison, jail, convicted, murder, 

UPDATE: 03/26/2022 "In an email distributed Thursday with the subject line “Nonviolent Parole Review Decision,” the California Board of Parole Hearings informed the victims’ families that Lockhart’s parole had been denied.   

“The Board of Parole Hearings has conducted its review and has denied the inmate for release,” the letter reads. “The inmate will likely be screened again for possible referral to the board in a year so long as the inmate remains eligible for the Nonviolent Offender Parole Review Process.”  

https://signalscv.com/2022/03/parole-denied-for-man-who-killed-2-scv-teens-in-crash

03/25/2022 Dealio Lockhard denied parole. Thanks to everyone who sent in letters to the parole board. The civil cases haven't even gone to trial yet. Dealio Lockhart is clearly a convicted violent criminal.

"March 23, 2022 Nonviolent Offender Parole Review Inmate was denied release"

https://inmatelocator.cdcr.ca.gov/Details.aspx?ID=BJ1472

02/28/2022 "Dealio Lockhart – who was convicted and sentenced to state prison for more than two decades after pleading guilty to the crash that killed two Valencia teenagers in February 2016 – could be released on parole imminently.  

His release is the outcome of recent changes in the law, through Proposition 57 (The Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016). "

https://signalscv.com/2022/02/changes-in-law-may-let-prisoner-out-on-parole

Let's not forget about the other people injured in the accident. "Thomas Kwon, burned badly, Javier C. Gonzalez injured and pinned in his vehicle trying to free himself from a certain death, Nicole L. Ruiz, five others were hurt, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department."

Let's also not forget Dealio's own words.

“HOW MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT I'VE CAUSED FOR THE FAMILIES, EVERYONE'S FAMILY. THE ONLY REASON THAT I CAN GIVE FOR MY ACTIONS THAT NIGHT IS A PURELY SELFISH ONE AND THAT'S BECAUSE I WANTED TO WIN, AND WITH THAT SELFISH MINDSET I HAVE CREATED A TRAGEDY THAT'S GOING TO FOREVER BE ON THE FOREFRONT OF MY MIND EVERY SINGLE NIGHT UNTIL THE DAY THAT I DIE.” - Dealio Lockhart  

“Adding insult to real-life injury and death, detectives say Lockhart displayed no concern for what happened, not even offering to assist the injured." "We have witnesses say he was in his car looking for his phone," said Boskovich. "That speaks volumes to me at what type of person this was." 

Dealio Lockhart was scrubbing his social media and internet tracks which showed his extensive car racing history at the crime scene instead of helping victims of the crash he caused. 

02/20/2022 I sent in an email to the Parole Board about my concerns. Dealio Lockhart is not a nonviolent prisoner based on his original charges and actions. He is a danger to society because he could easily re-offend as there are no restrictions on his driver's license or driving. His driver's license was only suspended for three years for vehicular manslaughter, if it was ever suspended. He may have to apply for a new driver's license. 

From a comment:

"There will not be a hearing that anyone can attend, not even a representative from the district attorneys office to argue against release. PLEASE email objections of early release to:

You must include your name, telephone number, address, the case number (BA444552) in the email you send. OR

This information can include any concerns about the release of Lockhart, may include safety of the general public.

Please remember Lockhart intentionally bought a car to race, recklessly raced with no regard for others, had a history of at least one other crash a couple other speeding tickets, even in other states. Three people died, one is still in a coma, several others sustained life-altering injuries and disfigurement.

Further questions for DA’s office: (323) 357-5340"

02/19/2022 Dealio Lockhart wants to get out on parole. He was referred for parole because he was classified as a "nonviolent offender." I beg to differ. He killed three people and almost killed two more by racing at high speed on the freeway. I believe one is still in a coma and could still die from the accident. People will be speaking out against his release. I'll post the contact here for the parole board so everyone can write letters opposing his release. 

04/2019 He was sentenced to 22 years in prison. It's only been three years since he was sentenced and six years since he's been in jail. He "pleaded guilty March 8 to three counts of vehicular manslaughter, four counts of engaging in a speed vehicle contest and 11 counts of assault likely to cause great bodily injury." 

I can't find the exact sentence at the moment because lacourt.org is down. It's up now. Sentencing as follows: He actually got a six year sentence and not 22 years. He was only sentenced for one murder and not three. The other sentences don't matter when it comes to parole. They all run concurrently anyway. Everyone was saying that 22 years is a long sentence. Not when you consider parole. He clearly got off light as Prop 57 passed before he was sentenced. Let's see if he gets out on parole or not. Some say vehicular manslaughter is a violent crime but legally it's not unless he intentionally set out to murder the specific people that he killed. Definition of violent crimes per California penal code 667.5 (c). He knew there was a good chance that someone would die from reckless high speed racing. He was originally charged with three counts of second degree murder which is a violent crime.

Count 1 192 (C)(1) Vehicular Manslaughter  6 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON. "192.  Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. (c) Vehicular—(1) Except as provided in subdivision (a) of Section 191.5, driving a vehicle in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to a felony, and with gross negligence; or driving a vehicle in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death, in an unlawful manner, and with gross negligence."

Count 2 (same charge) " 16 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 3 " 16 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 4 23109.1 motor vehicle contest causing injury 8 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 5 " 8 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 6 " 8 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 7 " 8 MONTH(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 8 245(A)(4) assault likely to cause great bodily injury 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 9 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 10 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 11 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 12 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 13 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 14 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 15 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 16 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 17 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

Count 18 " 1 YEAR(S) IN ANY STATE PRISON

"Is Vehicular Manslaughter a Violent Crime?

While it may be a serious charge, vehicular manslaughter is generally not considered to be a violent crime from a legal standpoint. However, laws can change and vary from state to state. For something to be considered a violent crime, the victim has to have been threatened with or harmed by violence. Even if you are responsible for a fatal accident, this is not considered to be violent if you did not intend to harm the other person."

Remember, Dealio was deleting his car racing photos, videos, history while he was at the crime scene. That's how I got involved. I heard about the crash that night then searched him asap. I saw the photos, videos and profiles disappearing so I saved them from cache and his friend's profiles. By the morning they were gone and his friends made their profiles or that content private. He knew he committed a crime and was trying to hide evidence that he was a known reckless car racer. People saw him on his phone at the crime scene.

Date Action Status

January 2022 Nonviolent Offender Parole Review Inmate was referred to the board for possible release as a nonviolent offender

Parole Eligible Date (Month/Year) 03/2022

"Once an inmate is determined to be eligible for the process, the department will determine when the inmate will have served the full term of his or her primary offense. This date is called the inmate's nonviolent parole eligible date (NPED)." 

"The maximum misdemeanor sentence for vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence is one (1) year in county jail—and the maximum felony sentence is six (6) years in state prison. But if you acted with only ordinary negligence, then Penal Code 192(c) is a misdemeanor."

This would cause one to be deemed unsuitable for parole i.e. "demonstrating an exceptionally callous disregard for human suffering." This is per the California Prison and Parole Handbook 2019.

Here is video of Dealio Lockhart in the same car probably on the same freeway showing what a bad ass driver he is. I looked at the video frame by frame. It starts out near the ocean maybe San Pedro. There are crumbling palisades to the left. He turns out of a parking lot then eventually on to a freeway. Next there is a sign for the Long Beach 710 freeway. He appears to be going north west. He drives into the sun setting and exposure changes. Then it's night time. In one frame he edited out the bottom left corner. I think it was a license plate of another car.

The Blackwashing of America by Mary Cummins Los Angeles, California

Black George Floyd was murdered by a white police officer May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While black men have been killed by police officers for many years that specific black murder changed everything. 

Black Lives Matter had been gaining influence and support since 2013. People had increasingly been taking and sharing videos of police brutality and use of excessive force against black men on social media. Videos of violence against black people were going viral. There was now no way to deny the intense racism in our country especially at the intersection of police and black men. That one death started a movement which has changed the face of the US.

"The country is in a time of racial reckoning, heightened by a summer of protests against systemic racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd in police custody." Floyd's death "sparked the largest racial justice protests in the United States since the Civil Rights Movement." "According to data from various sources, the Black Lives Matter movement is now the largest movement in US history.

George Floyd's death also changed the face of US politics. His death happened five months before the November 3, 2020 Presidential election. The issue of race and black people was front and center on the Democratic platform. Kamala Harris promised $60 billion for Historically Black Colleges and reparations for descendants of black slaves if she became President. Joe Biden promised racial equity for black people in housing and the appointment of people of color in his cabinet and in the White House. 

The public was demanding that government and business alike recognize and take action against racism and other "isms" like the #metoo movement. The list now includes women, people of color, LGBTQ, disabled... Reparations for past transgressions and inequalities must be made. And the government and business are responding.

Joe Biden appointed many people of color to his cabinet. Biden started the Interagency Task Force on Property Appraisal and Valuation Equity (PAVE). Companies have changed their Mission Statements and Articles of Incorporation to include diversity statements. Businesses have hired Diversity Officers to educate and advise them on how to treat employees and customers fairly without racism or bias. They are analyzing the percent makeup of people on their boards, managerial teams, staff who are male/female, black/white/brown, disabled ... and trying to make their company better reflect the communities they serve. PR and media firms have been hired to shape and transform companies' public faces to appear non-biased or racist. They have been blackwashing their websites, branding and image. 

Websites which used to have only white people now have only black people or mainly black people. There are now more women and people of color besides disabled and other people on public websites. These are all good and positive changes. Below are a few websites from before and after George Floyd's death. Only some websites that maintained the same format and allowed web.archive.org access are included for comparison. Click images to see larger. Before is on the left.

It's been 17 months since George Floyd died. So far it doesn't appear that there has been much real change in the board rooms. Some companies have released their first Inclusion Annual Report. Mastercard's report shows that a very small percentage of the board or upper management is black or female. The percentage is much smaller than the general population. They did show the smallest amount of improvement in some categories but nothing has really changed much for women, black people or Latinos. 

There also hasn't been much progress by the government giving money to black colleges. A Covid relief fund designated for only black people had to be offered to all because it was found to be unconstitutional. Joe Biden signed H.R. 40 which established a Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans but no progress has been made. 

It will probably take another couple of years before we can tell if George Floyd's death actually made a difference in the lives of black people or if George Floyd's life really mattered to society as a whole. Maybe it was just an event used by government and big business for their own agendas of getting elected and making money. Time will tell. Actions speak louder than words and so far there is no real action. Black lives matter.

Who is Freddie Figgers, Freddie Lee Figgers? Criminal history, judgments, lawsuits, biography, family history - by Mary Cummins

THIS IS A BREAKING STORY. CHECK BACK FOR FREQUENT UPDATES.

(Mugshot is below) When I first read the story about Freddie Lee Figgers last night it sounded unbelievable. That's why I decided to do some research. Based on what I've seen so far Freddie seems to be a "fake it til you make it" type of person whom I don't think has ever really made it. He spins all these tales to try to get people to invest in his businesses. So far I don't see any business success. He's always raising money for a start up or idea that never makes it. When it fails he has one excuse after another. He states he's the youngest person with an FCC license when he doesn't even have one. There are plenty of great black role models out there. There is no reason to promote this con man to the black community. Figgers has been using this support by well known black people to rip off the black community which is shameful.

Let's start with what we know. Freddie Lee Figgers was born September 27, 1989 09/27/1989 in Quincy, Florida per his criminal warrant, arrest records and criminal rap sheet. He's lived in Leon, Broward, Muskogen and Gadsden counties in Florida. He was raised by Nathan Figgers 11/30/1932 to 01/10/2014 Florida and Betty Mae Reed 11/25/1937. He stated he got a Bachelor degree in software engineering from Florida Atlantic University, July 28, 2013, Tallahassee Democrat article and his resume below. Out of the other side of his mouth six years later he said he never went to college, Washington Post, 2019 article. Later he said he started at FAU but dropped out. He originally stated he started his telecommunications company in 2009. Later he said he started it in 2014 with the money from the "shoe phone" after his father died. Why didn't WaPo do some research on this person? He is a story teller. 

Below is his family tree. I realize he said he's adopted. We'll get to that. 

Freddie Lee Figgers, Freddie Figgers, family tree, biography

This is his criminal history so far. I only searched two counties so far. Two violent assaults and one involved him stabbing a guy in the artery.

Freddie Lee Figgers, Gadsden County, Florida, Sheriff Office. February 17, 2014 battery and criminal mischief. 

Broward County criminal record. Freddie Lee Figgers. Broward County Case Number: 15008691CF10AState Reporting Number: 062015CF008691A88810Court Type: FelonyCase Type: 2nd Degree Felony. Filing Date: 07/07/2015Case Status: DisposedCourt Location: Central CourthouseJudge ID / Name: Merrigan - FE, Edward H, Jr.`Magistrate Id / Name: N/ABCCN: 0858793

From his arrest for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon arrested 10/31/2015 in Broward County, Florida:

Gender: Male  Race: Black Complexion: Light Height: 5'9" Weight: 185 Eye: Brown Hair: Black DOB: 09/27/1989 Birth City: Quincy, Birth State: FL (F2)784.045(1)(a)2-Aggrav Battery w/Deadly Weapon

He stabbed a man in the artery with a knife. He is listed as the ex boyfriend of Natlie Germain. She is currently his wife. Here is the affidavit and his mugshot. Why didn't any journalist investigate this story? The affidavit says Freddie Figgers tried to stab a man but missed. He tried to stab him again and stabbed him in the artery in the arm. Then Freddie got in the car and the guy he stabbed thought he was going to be hit with the car. Then Freddie ran away. There was a warrant then they arrested Freddie. His wife Natalie German Figger stated Freddie stabbed the guy with a knife to the police. Later Freddie says he was at a Denny's and not at the apartment. He then filed a motion to quash her subpoena so she couldn't appear. Looks like he got his then ex girlfriend and now wife to retract her statement that he stabbed a guy. What a story teller. They're both liars. I have the entire file. I'll post more later.

I tried to verify the abandoned as a newborn baby story. I searched newspapers and so far haven't seen a newborn baby boy abandoned around that time, i.e. within six months of his birth in that area. Figgers stated he was "adopted at two days old." Later he says he was abandoned at three months. Another time he was adopted at two months. Adoption takes years. It can't be done in days. You would see evidence of adoption in family court records. I don't see anything. I'm starting to think the baby was the child of someone in the family or someone very close. He's 5'9". His father is 5'6". His brother is 5'7". They're all short. This is even if he was abandoned as a baby. That's his story so far. I did notice that in a 1991 obituary for Michael Tyrone Figgers Freddie was not mentioned though his sister born in 1982 was mentioned. Why wasn't Freddie mentioned? Was he not a part of the family at the time? He was born two years earlier and allegedly adopted soon after birth. 

Michael Tyrone Figgers a "brother" of Freddie was shot and killed by a gas station worker in 1991. The family got a settlement. The person who shot him claimed it was self defense and was never charged though he did stay in jail a few weeks. Many members of the family have criminal histories. If they are foster children who came from tough lives I can understand. 

I see no evidence that Nathan Figgers fostered children. I do see evidence that Nathan's son Cornelius fostered children in 2003 in Florida. His wife Latisha Hutley worked with the Gadsden County Foster Care Association. She is a teacher and on the school board.

On top of this Figgers used to breed purebred pitbulls for sale. 

Patents: I searched the main patent office. Freddie Figgers doesn't own or have any patents. I see some applications in another site. Anyone can apply for a patent even for a nonsense product. I see some applications that were abandoned for a motorcycle helmet, cell phone, hologram projector. Abandoned patents mean they're worthless. One patent for a modem base is pending. It looks like a ten year old device. He seems to apply for patents for products which already existed when he made the applications.

Figgers stated he invented a shoe with a two way communication and GPS tracking system for his father with Alzheimers. He allegedly sold the rights for $2.4M in 2014 to "an undisclosed company in Kansas," Washington Post. Undisclosed as in doesn't exist? Then why does he have judgments? Later he said they use his phone shoe in a hospital. 

Figgers allegedly developed a glucometer that transmits the readings to other people. Where is it? If it's so amazing, why not patent and sell it? Maybe it doesn't exist. Found what he is calling "his" glucometer. It's someone else's glucometer. He didn't invent a glucometer or patent a system. He just has a four year old app which is free. The free app records the readings and can share it. This is common and free with all recent glucometers of the same price. The app actually looks like a copy of someone else's app. I think he just bought the meters and had his logo put on them. He is selling testing strips for more than most places. He's actually making money off diabetics while he again states he's doing it for free under his "people over profits" program. 

Figgers stated he invented a phone that disables text when the person is driving. That function has existed in other phones for many years. 

Figgers himself posted this article which I saved. Previously he said his father gave him a broken computer from Goodwill but he fixed it. This article states he didn't fix. He broke it then his father returned it broken.

Figgers Telecommunications aka D & F Communications: It appears to have never gotten off the ground and is busted. The story is there were too many regulations. The phone system is heavily regulated. No one should expect to just put up a tower and start a business. Here is an article about that failure from Tallahassee Democrat, Tallahassee, Florida August 14, 2016 written by his ex business partner. The idea first went public in 2013 with Figger's business partner DeVoe Moore per the Tallahassee Democrat article. It was never going to be free as Figger later stated. They wanted to make money. Figger met DeVoe when he went to DeVoe's property to work on his internet as a technician. Figgers later changed the name. 

Figgers Telecommunications was sued in 2019 Taylor Patchen v. Figgers Communication, Inc.. Cause: 47:0227 Violation of Telephone Consumer Protection Act 8:19-cv-02097-JLS-JDE. Looks like Fidders was spamming people. "To promote its services, Defendant engages in aggressive unsolicited telemarketing, harming thousands of consumers nationwide in the process." The Plaintiff ultimately dismissed the case so I'm sure he got a settlement. Figgers replied with a Motion to Dismiss which they lost because it wasn't filed properly.

February 2021 Figgers now does a kickstarter to raise funds for his for profit telecommunications company which he said he started in 2009. He said the funds are so poor people can get free internet service. There is no free internet service. He said he'll give a hotspot and only three months of 4G service. They have to pay after that. This is February 2021. We're at 5G now. Figgers states he is the only black owned telecommunications company in the nation. He's not even really a telecommunications company. He resells other people's cell phone, wifi hotspot devices and cell phone service from t-mobile. 

Turns out he's lying about giving free internet service to people. The city is paying for it. So he begs for donations then actually sells the units to the city for profit. Not only that but the hotspot device they are selling is a rebranded cheap device made in China. He claims it's made in USA. They same model at Walmart sells for $30. And the city will lease one for over $30 a month? Figgers just increases the price of the hotspot to make money then slaps his name on it. Oddly enough their website says it's out of stock.

Below is the Figgers unit and the one Walmart sells for a profit at $30. It's actually a TianJie 4G Lte Pocket Wifi Router Car Mobile Wifi Hotspot Wireless Broadband Mifi Unlocked Modem Router 4G With Sim Card Slot. It retails for $20-27. It's considered cheap low tech. Freddie Figgers has no shame ripping off the City and its poor citizens. Disgusting. Shameful. Revolting.




Figgers was trying to contract with the city. There were problems verifying that the hot spots had actually been delivered to people. The city is paying for the hotspots. In a press release Figgers said he was donating it to the residents. Another lie as he's being paid. City sent them a cease letter. This article and this article explain it better. 

This gets worse. The city wanted the address of the warehouse so they could verify the product. The warehouse is allegedly in Durall, Doral? It may not even be his warehouse. Figgers said they couldn't give the address of the warehouse because he has a restraining order on someone who threatened to kill him. The order is allegedly in Gadsden county. I searched and couldn't find one. They don't want that person to have the address. If there is a warehouse, I bet it's empty. Another story. Doral is in Miami-Dade County. 

I'm starting to think the units don't exist because they are trying so hard to hide them. One person from Figgers brought up discrimination when the city asked for verification of the units. It's a $900,000 contract. Now it's $1,700,000. Originally Figgers said it was for 45,000 units but it's for 25,000. The newspaper corrected Figgers stating Figgers gave them the wrong number. It sounds to me like the city is basically paying to give Figgers customers. They have to pay eventually. The city is just leasing the units. 

2017 Figgers offered ten $1,000 scholarships for high school graduates in certain counties in Florida. Does anyone know if anyone ever got the money? I see no followup. The scholarship page is gone from his website www.freddiefiggers.com/scholarship

Figgers started the Figgers Foundation in 2020. It has no tax returns, assets, expenditures or income. EIN 83-2013108. He started an earlier one in 2018 with almost no information at all. He is the only person involved. In 2019 it was reinstated adding his wife who is an attorney. 

March 2021 Figgers now states he's the youngest black person to own a telecommunications company. He offers another scholarship through the Figgers Foundation. He stated he is the youngest person and only Black person with an FCC license. He doesn't have one. His 2014 application was dismissed because he never followed through with it. This will open a pdf file from FCC. It's his dismissal letter. Here is his 2014 application again in pdf. The stories about not getting the tower permitted by the city now sound like a lie.

Figgers stated he "made his own smart phone." He didn't. It's someone else's phone with his name on it. Figgers claims certain specs and components which are not in the phone. I'm sure Figgers earbuds are the same, just some crap from China.

"The Figgers F3 is a better smartphone specs wise compared to the F1 and F2. However, my research reveals that many are quite unhappy with the specs that Figgers Communications™ have declared, casting doubts on it. Others are reporting that it is essentially an Oukitel C1. I must admit they look extremely similar in design."

On top of this it appears Figgers paid people, influencers to promote his phone on social media. There are some who outed Figgers poorly made phone.  Figgers Wireless then threatened to sue or did sue them for outing the phone scam. Flossy Carter stated Freddie Figgers lied to him about the phone specs. It's allegedly a 2016 phone sold in 2019 for top of the line prices. Figgers scammed a lot of people. He intentionally becomes friends with celebs then uses those contacts to push his iffy products. One of those celebs is Jeezy a rap person. 

The F3 Figgers phone is just a rebranded Oukitel phone which he sold for $600. He's making over 2x profit selling, rebranding someone else's phone. Figgers states it's made in the USA when it's made in China just like with the hotspots. 

Video about Figgers scamming people with his phone. Author says he scams his own people. I agree. Figgers got a lot of influential black people to promote him and his business saying he's helping poor black people. He's actually ripping them off. Turns out the home he says is his home on promo videos is an Air BnB he rented for the shoot.

Here's another great video about the phone scam. She says Figgers rebranded the Oukitel phone and sold it for over 2x the price. The Oukitel sells for $170 and the F3 sold for $600. Figgers then lied about the specs and where it was made.

Another great YouTube review of this scammer. This person states it clearly. Figgers is a black person taking advantage of black people to make money.

Another honest review of this scammer.

And of course "his" wireless service is just rebranded t-mobile. Here is Figgers Wireless phone service map. It's from t-mobile! He's reselling t-mobile service to people for a profit. Just use t-mobile and you can save money. 

Corporations. He's started many corporation and most aren't active. I searched here only for Florida. Below are a few.
