Samblis surfacing again… incognito perhaps ???

Well folks… it’s been a while since we last posted.  Nothing to write about because Mr. Steven M. Samblis sold everything and retired from the CEO business, right?  Well, maybe not.

There was a recent press release for Fortune Road Media, Inc., (see it here) which, as many loyal followers might recognize, has all the writing styles frequently utilized by Mr. Steven M. Samblis during his ICPA/IMTV days.  In fact, it appears even the “new” company name is a recycle of days gone by.  The below graphic is an excerpt from an article written back in 1999 entitled “Saga of a fallen Internet Stock: Millionaire.com“.  See it here.

Samblis_FortuneMedia2Now, it’s interesting to notice that there appears to be a new “front-man” for the new initiative, Mr. Sean O’Riordan.  Check the “Contacts” name at the bottom of the above linked press release.  You may remember a similar (apparently failed) attempt to mask Mr. Samblis’s new efforts at continuing to create a network broadcasting empire, with the use of another “front-man”, namely Mr. Joseph S Sirriani.  Notice that Mr. Samblis’s name appears nowhere in or around the press release.  Yet, it’s well known, and documented, that Fortune Road Media, Inc. is a Mr. Steven M. Samblis entity.  (See below)  Apparently, Mr. Samblis thinks his name is so toxic that associating such with any new initiative would be counterproductive to its success.  Wait… didn’t Mr. Samblis spend investor funds to have his name trademarked ?  Why would anyone spend money to trademark a name that apparently they are ashamed to use?

FortuneRoadWhoIsNow… no one is, or should be, attempting to deny Mr. Samblis the right to make a living.  BUT… the question here is, were ICPA/IMTV investor funds used to create a revenue stream that benefits only Mr. Samblis.  Given that there has been no significant audited financial accounting of the public company finances, how can investors (who lost significant amounts of money on their investments) be assured assets, and/or revenue from the public company were not used to start the new Fortune Road Media, Inc. company?

Also, IF, there was some level of misrepresentation or co-mingling of any assets or funds, such would at the very least likely be considered unscrupulous behavior, and at worst, possible criminal behavior.   Additionally, IF questionable actions were taken by Mr. Samblis, one would wonder why others would associate themselves, or their name, with that of Mr. Samblis.  The history of Mr. Samblis’s actions related to business partners or associates are well documented, just ask Mr. Joseph Collins for one.

So folks… you have the data, you need to decide for yourself what you believe is going on with Mr. Samblis.  There doesn’t appear to be any creditable evidence that Mr. Samblis sold the public company, or isn’t still involved at the control level somehow (given the “Private Sale”).  The public company still currently trades, albeit barely, and the PPS is currently sitting at .0001.   It is very possible that soon, given the new press release of Fortune Road Media, Inc, that there will be another attempt to revive the public company.   Look for another push, possibly soon, and possibly by the Asher related folks, to start posting on message boards about “loading the boat” because this thing is “going to the moon”.  You may even see hyped PR’s that indicate IMTV bought this hugely popular financial powerhouse called Fortune Road Media, Inc.  And… it’s likely Mr. Samblis’s name will be nowhere to be found.  If successful at the “rebranding”… new investors will likely be unaware of what’s going on.  At least that will likely be the plan.

Investors should ask themselves this… WHY, when Fortune Road Media, Inc. (from all appearances, a private company) releases a press release, (like they did here) do they feel the need to display a “Envision TV Safe Harbor Statement” at the bottom, which includes the following statement: “A more extensive listing of risks and factors that may affect the company’s business prospects and cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in the reports and other documents filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Who’s kidding who ???

[UPDATED 1/16/2016… see below]

Well, most likely you have seen the Mr. Steven M. Samblis tumbler post.  The one where he appears to attempt to desperately convince readers that he no longer has anything to do with the public company( IMTV).   WHY ???

WHY does someone who states he no longer has anything to do with the company, tries so desperately to convince you (the potential investor) that he is no longer involved ???  It’s likely many others are asking the same question.    It just defies all logic.

Why would he care ?  Well… the old adage is, if something makes no logical sense – follow the money.  Oh wait… you can’t follow the money because it was a PRIVATE sale.  In other words… the parties to the contract of sale didn’t want you to know what the deal was.  Nothing suspicious about that, right?

Mr. Samblis… if you want readers to believe you have noting to do with the company… simply file the contract of sale with the SEC.  

According to the 8K, there is a contract of sale.  So Mr. Samblis, why take to a tumbler post to try so desperately to convince readers of your honesty, when the most direct route to that end would be to release the contract of sale to the SEC ?

Mr. Samblis appears very bitter and angry, in addition to desperate in the post,  trying to convince readers, once again, he is the victim. Once again, WHY would he be extremely bitter over folks thinking he is still involved ?  Logic, and common sense would tell many, it’s because he still  has something at stake regarding the public company.  Perhaps Mr. Samblis is bitter and angry that the plan to hit the reset button, has failed, like so many of his other initiatives (which were also not released to the SEC).

This tumbler post by Mr. Steven M. Samblis appears to be the strongest evidence yet that he still has some interest in the public company.  If not, WHY the “Private” sale, and WHY withhold the document from the SEC???

Mr. Samblis… you want readers to believe you – it’s simple… file the contract of sale with the SEC !  IMTV was (and is) a public company at the time of the “sale” – the contract should be made public.  You owned the company, you are a party to the contract, you can file it. 

 UPDATE: Well, that post didn’t last long.  As Mr. Samblis frequently does, he creates posts, or makes statements, such as the $192,000 per airport statement he made in the Stock Traders Radio broadcast, or the arrest page at MugShots.com, and others too numerous to list here, then he deletes the posts or broadcasts for unexplained reasons.  Well readers are free to draw their own conclusions about the original statements, and the subsequent deletions, and they frequently do.  Perhaps that is why many are not buying his latest desperate statement that he is no longer involved with IMTV.

However, as they say, once on the internet – always on the internet.  For those that wish to verify the information in our post above… HERE is the captured post as it appeared after it was published.

“Private sale”…

Folks… some investors share the same sentiment as the post shown below.  (click to enlarge)  They also think that this is a brand new company, with brand new leadership, brand new ideas, and will bring brand new profits for their investments.

Folks… if they wanted you to know the details of the sale… it would not have been “Private” !  There is a reason people conduct business in private – it’s because they don’t want you to know what they are doing.  That concept is not rocket science.

We mentioned it in our post here, those who don’t know, and/or respect history – are doomed to repeat it.  And, there is plenty of very reliable history on this company, and Mr. Steven Samblis, available with just a few minutes on any search engine like Google.  History really does tend to repeat itself.  There is no dispute that many investors, that most likely considered themselves experienced and cautious investors, lost a lot of money on this company.  Just do a little research and you can confirm this fact.

Now, if you’re thinking the history of this company, and Mr. Steven Samblis doesn’t matter anymore because of the change in ownership… you would be wise to revisit the concept of “Private sale“, and the possibilities that exist when the principal parties don’t want you to know what the real story is.  Here is one sure bet… if it was of ANY benefit to YOU, the deal would most likely not been “Private”.  You, the potential investor, do not know if the contract was 1 page, or 100 pages.  You have NO idea what else could have been in the contract of sale regarding compensation and/or continued ownership of the public company.  However, it’s a safe bet that it was favorable to Mr. Samblis or he would not have consummated the “sale”.

Re-Read the 8K, and notice the word choices that were used.  When investors read the 8K they would be wise to think about the history of this company, and Mr. Steven Samblis’s previous actions running the company, and his integrity with respect to some of his previous promises.  Think to yourself, what other meaning COULD those words be used for, such as evasive, or misleading, or escape clause type of duel meaning works.  Mr. Samblis is very good in the art of using duel meaning words – just ask him is he ever “sold” any shares.

MilesBlue42 is spot on when he rhetorically asks why Mr. Samblis so infrequently files 8K notices about grandiose initiatives that he releases simply as press releases.  One could assume that he does not want to go on the record with the SEC about the plans.  Investors should be asking WHY?

Folks… you would be wise to respect the history of the company and Mr. Steven Samblis every time you start to think something new is about to happen here simply because of a “Private sale” that by it’s very nature, didn’t provide you with all the details any investor should have before making an important decision.

For those who think he’s really gone …

Just a note to those who think Mr. Steven Samblis is gone from the TV network business, might want to do a little DD on Envision-TV.  Yes folks, there is already a re-branding underway in the form of a new website, and Facebook page.  Check them out and decide for yourselves if you think there is a relationship to Mr. Steven Samblis.  Also, scroll down to the bottom of the page on the website and notice the new company name, Fortune Road Media.  Google that name and look at the site… look familiar?

Heeeeeee’s baaaaaaaack !

p.s. Wasn’t the new CEO billed as a “Marketing Genius” ?
