Body by Jake sues AOL

It's a wacky world. Body by Jake has sued AOL for, among other things, breach of contract. You see, Jake Steinfeld has written a book that was to be promoted by AOL. According to the lawsuit, AOL employees allegedly forged purchase orders, contracts, and other documents.

But that's not funny. What is funny are the comments from the readers of the story:

I find it ironic that in the quote from Paul Schmidman the word inaccuate is spelled "innacurate"

Paul "Schmidi" Schmidman seems to have been acting as a representative of AOL in his actions with Body by Jake, and that there was no reason for Body by Jake to assume that he was not empowered to speak for AOL for contract negotiations. If a senior vice president of a company makes you a promise on behalf of the company, as far as I'm concerned, it's binding.
AOL owes Body by Jake the remainder of the funds promised, and ought to throw in some restitution for this kind of BS game that seems to be coming out.

I find it ironic that the quote was about Schmidman, not by Schmidman and what the heck is an inaccuate?

I find it moronic that the mispelled quote, attributed to "Schmidi", was actually a quote from "an industry source".

I can't believe that people actually took the time to check the spelling of an article and then comment on it. Does anyone work in this country anymore???
BTW You go Jake. Stick it to the man!

What's funny is how easily PS finds fools who beleive his lies. Funny is that Schmidman has a history for forging documents and none of these companies have put him in jail for fraud, embezzlement or sued him yet. Xaos Tools, electrogig, et al - all fired him quietly as he was caught doing the same thing now alleged at AOL. Forging purchases orders, falsifying sales agreements and taking bonuses based on the false sales. AND yet he gets another bunch of fools to hire him again. He was never a SVP at AOL either. Expect to hear more about this as the story unfolds.
With "Schmidi", its all just history repeating.

all just history repeating... paul schmidman did the same thing at AOL as he did at XAOS TOOLS, electrogig and other comapnies he was fired from in the past: forged purchase orders, faked commercial agreements and took bonus money based on the false sales.
He has had about 16 jobs in 16 years and none of them was SVP at AOL. His CV is a con and so is he. The funny thing is that he keeps finding complete idiots to hire him who never look into his long trail of destruction.
