1. MARK BERGMAN - Crim-Del-A-Crim of stock promoters. Mark was an analyst for the notorious boiler Room D.H. Blair nasdadr.com and soon graduated to V.P. of Investor relations at Xybernaut. Xybernauts human Resorses Department was not to swift since Bergman had claimed to be a PH.D which turned out to be a academic fraud which was revealed in the $15 Million "Pump and Dump" Stock Fraud Case Securities and Exchange Commission v. Environmental Solutions Worldwide. that Bergman indeed was no PH.D but did have a degree in stock fraud sec.gov . Bergman had recommended xybernaut through Fab Capital Corp findarticles.com and Hampton-Porter findarticles.com . Hampton Porter had the misfortune of having of having eight of their brokers indicted for securities fraud usdoj.gov which involved the stock Enpoint (ENPT) which just happened to be a reseller of Xybernaut computers. Bergmans greatest accomplishment was Access1Financial.com which also put out the strong buy on Xybernaut. Access1Financial was being run out of 2224 Main Street in Santa Monica California which is also the address of career conman, criminal and offshore Boiler Room con artist Regis Possinio. Xybernaut said that they did not endorse the report which seemed to be a total lie since Xybernaut put a press release out announcing the bogus 'buy' recommendation predicting its shares would double in six months and also put it on Xybernauts web site.

CHRISTINA IN "XYBERNAUT IS UNDER VALUED"
XYBERNAUT PAID CHRISTINA S. KOHLHAAS A/K/A CHRISTINA SKOUSEN, (individually and doing business as CSK Securities Research). Christina had the misfortune of being charged with securities fraud. Christina a self-styled "analyst" with a high school education and no formal securities training, wrote research reports touting eight microcap companies. Skousen's reports for seven of the companies contained false and misleading financial and stock price projections. The projections lacked a reasonable basis because, among other reasons, all of the companies had poor financial track records, and four of the companies were the subject of going concern audit opinions. Christina settled with the SEC but alas did not have to pay the judgement because of a plea of poverty.

Must we say more accept why was not Xybernaut and the other companies which paid him also charged with securities fraud.
Donner Corporation International n/k/a National Capital Securities, Inc. (CRD #37702, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), Jeffrey Lyle Baclet (CRD #2022409, Registered Principal, Santa Ana, California), Vincent Michael Uberti (CRD #2618595, Registered Principal, Santa Ana, California), and Paul Alan Runyon (CRD #3159920, Registered Representative, Lake Forest, California) were named as respondents in an NASD complaint alleging that the firm, acting through Baclet and Uberti, intentionally or recklessly prepared and disseminated research reports on reporting companies that included fraudulent, exaggerated, and unwarranted claims, and failed to disclose material information regarding the true financial condition of the companies and the "going concern" opinion of the auditor. The complaint also alleges that the firm, acting through Baclet and Uberti, failed to provide in the research reports any reasonable basis for recommendations, and to explain the recommendations in light of the going concern opinions included in auditor reports and the underlying financial conditions of the companies. In addition, the complaint alleges that the firm, Baclet, and Uberti directly or indirectly employed devices, schemes, or artifices to defraud; made untrue statements of material fact or omitted to state material facts necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; or engaged in acts, practices, or courses of business that operated or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon persons in connection with the purchase or sale of securities. NASD also alleges that the firm, Baclet, and Uberti failed to disclose in the research reports the compensation the firm received for the preparation and dissemination of the research reports. Moreover, the complaint alleges that the firm, acting through Baclet, failed to obtain the signature or initials of a principal of the firm indicating approval of the research reports it disseminated, and failed to establish or maintain written procedures to supervise the preparation and dissemination of research reports reasonably designed to achieve compliance with applicable securities laws, regulations, and NASD rules. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Uberti and Runyon issued a research report with a speculative buy recommendation for a common stock and failed to disclose material information that an auditor had issued a going concern opinion for the stock and the financial information about the stock that made communications with the public misleading. NASD also alleges that Uberti and Runyon exaggerated the market potential for companies issuing common stock and ignored specific facts, causing the research report to be misleading. The complaint also alleges that Uberti and Runyon directly or indirectly employed devices, schemes, or artifices to defraud; made untrue statements of material fact or omitted to state material facts necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; or engaged in acts, practices, or courses of business that operated or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon persons in connection with the purchase or sale of securities. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Uberti and Runyon failed to disclose the existence of "going concern" opinions in research reports, failed to disclose the underlying basis cited by the auditor for the "going concern" opinions, failed to disclose the true financial condition of the companies and other material information, and made exaggerated, false, and misleading statements about companies in research reports.

Dodi started her career working for criminal and conman John Manion of Continental Capital and Equity. which changed its name to Madison and Wall Worldwide. Dodi's most famous client todate was GenisisIntermedia followed by the massive fraud known as Esafety. Best I can tell is Dodi is employed by these companies to lie about their true condition and play spin Docter opn the financial community.

Post # of 3735 JUST FOR THE RECORD In response to numerous postings on chat rooms associated with GenesisIntermedia, Inc. regarding the Company's affiliation with Madison & Wall Worldwide, Inc. (formerly Continental Capital & Equity Corporation), the following is provided: Madison &Wall is a nationally recognized, full service financial public relations firm that was established in 1992. For nearly a decade, we have prided ourselves on representing the investor relations needs of publicly traded companies. The senior management, along with several key employees of the Company, have participated in the management buyout of the Company. The founder and selling shareholder, Mr. John Manion, officially had resigned from the organization in mid-2000 after having turned over the day-to-day management of the company to its senior executives in late 1999. Although Mr. Manion has been involved with personal regulatory issues, they are in no way affiliated with Madison & Wall. Further, Madison & Wall has been audited by two different firms for every year from 1996 through 1999 (our 2000 audit has not yet commenced), and our auditors have been so convinced that Mr. Manion’s personal issues are unrelated to the company that they have not even included so much as a footnote disclosure on this matter. Our current auditor is one of the eight largest audit firms in the country. Furthermore, as a condition to the senior management buyout of Continental Capital, we required proof from Mr. Manion that the court had unconditionally released the Company from any possible claims involving Mr. Manion’s situation. We received proof of that signed release prior to proceeding with the purchase documents. Furthermore, we do not advocate "boiler room" tactics for increasing awareness of our client companies, however we do engage in telemarketing activities to pro-actively educate the professional investment community (i.e. retail brokers, institutions and analysts) on those companies whose fundamentals and technicals meet the expressed interest criteria from individuals within that community. Our financial relations executives are highly trained and effective marketing professionals who understand the sensitivities involved in working in a highly regulated environment and one in which they exhibit only the highest levels of responsibility, integrity and professionalism. Tours of our facilities are common and encouraged. It is our belief that in today's sophisticated investment arena, companies can not and should not wait for the market to come to them. If they are to attract broad market appreciation for their businesses, then they must pro-actively educate this arena on the reasons why they are worthy of that appreciation. In our professional opinion, GenesisIntermedia is such a company. Should anyone have any further questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact me directly by calling 407-682-2001.

SAN DIEGO -- Move over Tommy Hilfiger. The next wave of fashion just might come from Xybernaut's (XYBR:Nasdaq - news) wearable computers -- at least in the corporate world.
Xybernaut's Mobile Assistant IV is a two-piece wonder: A portable, two-pound computer that can be worn around the waist, with a headset that has a screen so the user can navigate the Web either by mouse or by voice. MA IV, which the company will unveil this week at the COMDEX trade show in Las Vegas, will create a revenue surge, Xybernaut's director of investor relations Mark Bergman said.
The Fairfax, Va.-based company expects 1999 revenues to come in between $30 million and $40 million.
"That's a conservative estimate, too," Bergman told a room of money managers. "Internally, management is expecting something closer to about $90 million, but those are the guidance numbers we're giving to the Street."
Not bad, considering Xybernaut made $813,000 in revenue in during '97, down 26% lower from $1.1 million in revenue in '96.

Will stock portfolios return +10%+ next year? Very possibly many will. Still, we recommend caution and avoiding much margin buying. January is especially tricky as it celebrates national bankruptcy month, a Lunar eclipse and a presidential inauguration. As we continue to see more traditional investing, value (Saturn) AND Growth (Jupiter) will both matter.

Speculators and gamblers ONLY: Choose either of the following group of four stocks for a very aggressive January play. Buy your basket of stocks with your mad money that you would ordinarily spend and lose in a weekend in Las Vegas or Atlantic City only. Sell between the January 9th Lunar Eclipse and January 24 Chinese New Year of the Snake, or 150% profits; whichever comes first.

9.PHIL E. PEARCE DIRECTOR OF XYBERNAUT PHIL E. PEARCE (Former Chairman NASD & Board of Governors NYSE)
MOVE OVER DICK GRASSO
THIS IS WHAT PHIL HAD TO SAY ABOUT FAKE PH.D FRAUDSTER AND CONMAN MARK BERGMAN ON ACCESS!FINANCIAL"S WEB SITE DURING THE XYBERNAUT BUY RECOMMENDATION
"Access 1 Financial offers undervalued companies a truly unique opportunity. Its highly respected team of Wall Street analysts work in concert with retail and institutional sales professionals to position your company within an increasingly competitive investment environment. It has been my experience that typical public relations firms do not have the kind of research or market credibility to attract serious, long-term investor following. By combining top-notch research with a highly effective distribution system, Access 1 Financial offers the first comprehensive solution for positioning small companies within the public markets."
Phil E. Pearce
Former Chairman NASD & Board of Governors
NYSE Despite the fact that the market has beat all expectations in the past 10 years, companies within the micro-cap group are finding it increasingly difficult to position themselves within the mind-boggling array of investor requirements and expectations. As mergers and acquisitions within the securities industry continue at a rapid pace, and as compensation mechanisms and regulations provide incentives to trade in the larger, more liquid securities, small and micro-cap companies will find it increasingly difficult to achieve premium or even fair market value. Competing for investor mind share - especially for companies with limited liquidity or a disparaging track record is no mean feat. Access 1 Financial was formed as a means of providing these companies with sophisticated access to an important array o financial, research, and marketing network resources traditionally available only to larger, well-positioned companies.
THE MARKET PARADOX
As the market continues to achieve new highs, investors are beginning to re-think their overall investment strategy. Even with the tremendous gains in blue chip and over-the-counter issues, smaller capitalized companies have lagged behind their larger counterparts. We at Access 1 Financial believe that over the next several years increasingly sophisticated investors seeking superior returns will become more active in smaller cap issues (under $100 million) as long as the underlying fundamentals support a higher probability of substantial return. However, these companies have significant liquidity issues and greater inherent risk and uncertainty. Unless a company is expertly positioned within the market, its fundamental value and competitive advantages will more than likely continue to be ignored by major institutional and retail buyers.
ACCESS 1 to the Markets
Hundreds of new companies are added to the markets each year. With thousands of small-cap companies from which to choose, it's no wonder that a typical fund manager never even sees many of the most compelling stories. Portfolio managers typically receive a press kit or an invitation to lunch from an investor relations firm. It usually ends up in the waste basket. Why? The answer is simple. Investor relations and promotional firms do not have the capability to represent sophisticated stories to institutional managers; and typically lack credibility with influential market makers and high net worth individuals. Although many of these firms advertise extensive databases and contacts, the simple fact is, they have no in-house research, or "first call" capabilities. In reality, their direct marketing attempts at accessing fund managers and brokers by phone or with mail-outs have minimum or short-term impact - missing the real objective of serious, long-term investor following.

Wonder if Arnold beats Gray Davis in the recall election in California?
APPEARANCE FOLLOWED DONATION FROM FIRM WITH TROUBLED PAST
By Dion Nissenbaum
Mercury News Sacramento Bureau Mercury News Archives Gov. Gray Davis SACRAMENTO - Three days after taking a $10,000 donation from its founder, Gov. Gray Davis traveled to Southern California earlier this year to promote a high-tech company that is little known in the industry but has drawn significant attention from federal regulators.
Documents obtained by the Mercury News show that Davis' decision to favor Kanakaris Wireless was curious for a number of reasons: Despite its claims of industry influence, the firm is an obscure, money-losing business run by an aggressive self-promoter who paid $25,000 in 1999 to settle charges of stock fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Davis aides rejected suggestions of a link between the political contribution and the Democratic governor's appearance. They said the governor often seeks to support California companies but didn't know of the specific concerns about Kanakaris Wireless.
But the administration's efforts in this case were extensive. Aides touted the governor's appearance at a January Web cast sponsored by Kanakaris Wireless, provided the company with Davis quotes to use in a corporate press release and promoted the event on the state Web site.
``Our challenge as a state is to keep California on the cutting edge of technology innovation,'' Davis said in a statement released by the company at the time. ``We've always been faster, newer, better than the other guy. Now, more than ever, we need to stay ahead of the curve.''
The business is an odd amalgam of entertainment Web sites catering to everyone from singles to bookworms. It is led by Alex Kanakaris, a former stockbroker who bills himself on his personal Web site as a ``visionary,''
``Cyberguru'' and Internet pioneer.
But Kanakaris was also accused of fraud three years ago by federal investigators as he was trying to get traction for his struggling business.
According to a complaint from the SEC, the problems arose after Kanakaris agreed to buy out concerned stockholders who then had their reimbursement checks bounce. To help get out of the hole, Kanakaris sold $1.3 million in stock and used part of that money to pay off the fleeing investors.
But in an effort to make the stock sales more attractive, Kanakaris and his company falsely claimed that the firm had deals with AOL and Microsoft and the backing of prominent business leaders, the SEC said.
In the end, Kanakaris and his business partner both agreed to pay a $25,000 fine to settle the case without admitting wrongdoing.
Kanakaris blamed the problems on the attorney who he claimed ``ripped his company off'' and said his firm has learned from its mistakes.
``My company has struggled,'' he said. ``It was a mess. We need a couple of breaks, but I think we will be around for a long time to come.''
Despite the company's troubles, Davis agreed to travel to Orange County in January to take part in the ``Orange County Next Generation Internet & Technology World Wide Webcast,'' which was billed as a way for Davis to promote high tech.
Instead, the Web cast turned out to be a poorly produced interview with Kanakaris that was never carried live as promised.
Davis took part in this event just three days after his campaign received a $10,000 check from Kanakaris. Kanakaris also gave Davis a $15,000 donation last year that Kanakaris failed to properly report to state or local elections officials, documents show.
The Davis campaign properly reported both contributions, as well as a third contribution of $3,300 from Kanakaris in February.
In an interview, Kanakaris said he personally badgered the governor for weeks, cornering Davis at a West Hollywood party to show off his pocket PC technology.
``I think it was more the personal appeal to him than a $10,000 contribution,'' Kanakaris said.
Steve Maviglio, the governor's press secretary, said that Kanakaris promoted the event as something more than it turned out to be and that -- despite normal background checks done for state events -- administration officials knew nothing of the owner's past problems until contacted by the Mercury News.
``Our office thought it was an opportune time to pitch California's business climate for high tech to a critical audience,'' he said. ``We had no reason to question his background, just as we don't question the credentials of any of the outlets the Governor interviews with.''
A quick search of public records would have revealed a series of potential concerns. Over the years, Kanakaris has launched a foundering online bookseller, started an Internet TV station that primarily shows B movies, laid the groundwork for a singles Web site and tried to create a market for delivering video to pocket PCs.
None of these efforts has been a particular success.
``They're not on the radar screen of any cable, wireless or satellite video-on-demand system,'' said Richard Doherty, research director at the Envisioneering Group in New York. ``They're the Invisible Man of the industry.''
But Kanakaris has labored hard to get his company noticed.
After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Kanakaris issued a press release.
``Now is the time for everyone to take stock in America,'' Kanakaris said. ``It doesn't matter what the company is, but we should all buy a little stock as a symbol of our support for the American and world financial markets.''
At times the achievements Kanakaris has touted in press releases have proven to be exaggerations.
Kanakaris trumpeted a plan to buy the Los Angeles Film School from two of his top investors, but the deal quietly collapsed. He once claimed to have had 18 million hits on his Web sites in a month, but there is no empirical evidence of that from Nielsen NetRatings, which tracks Internet traffic.
