Fraudulent Business Practice
""WARNING"" Company may not abide to any of their legal contracts.*Mid Valley Publications-Winton Times-Hilmar Times-Hughson Chronicle-Merced TimesCorporation Address: 6950 Gerard Ave., Winton, CA  95388Corporation Phone: (209)358-5311Our company was first introduced to Mid Valley Publications on January 10th of 2008 by one of their co-workers who has politely requested that we keep them anonymous. The co-worker has noticed that Mid Valley Publications where running illegal software ( Windows XP, Quark and Adobe Photoshop ) and that they were using P2P applications such as Limewire and Bittorrents to download these pirated software and music. The company was having an Open House and I was invited to evaluate their current network and computers. I was first introduced to Fran Sodini (CEO), John Derbie (Owner) and later on that day another co-worker. I have evaluated their current network conditions and provided them with the following:1. Wires where hanging from the ceiling and door areas. Fire / Safety Hazard2. Hubs connected to series of hubs instead of purchasing longer CAT5. Latency / Bottleneck3. Old and broken surge protectors. Fire / Safety Hazard4. Old and broken universal power sources plugged in. Fire / Safety Hazard5. Surge protectors plugged into series of surge protectors. Fire / Safety Hazard6. Computers had dust bunnies in and outside of their towers. Fire / Safety Hazard7. Old Desktop computer was used as a Server and was about to have a catastrophic failure. Down Time / Loss Of Revenue8. Windows Software on computers where non-legit. Illegal / Loss Of Revenue9. Network cables where old and had staples going through them. Fire Hazard / High Latency10. Network cables where running all over the ground and people where either walking on or tripping over them. Fire / Safety Hazard / High Latency11. No Firewall Security Software installed on any of the units.  Not PCI / HIPPA Compliant12. Viruses & Spyware where detected on almost every computer.  Not PCI
