Dean Kosage Wants To Take Down This Page By Any Means Necessary [Updated: Job Listing Taken Down]

January 3, 2012

Update January 3, 2012: The job listing has been removed by elance because it violated elance’s terms of service.


A screenshot of the elance job listing.

I haven’t written about former WWDB Diamond Dean Kosage in nearly a year now. I got a tip the other day that either he (or someone who works with him) is actively trying to remove this blog post from the search engines.

Check out this job listing on elance, posted by user jamessiri:

Need To Remove a WordPress Article ASAP!

Need someone with blackhat/whitehat experience to remove a WordPress page! I need this done, and will pay right away!

This is the article. It is very bad and false press and I need it removed from the search engines as it is hurting reputation.

https://amthrax.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/dean-kosage-leaves-wwdb/

I will pay after 3 days of page removal to make sure that the page stays down. I don’t care if blackhat methods are used, as this is not just a simple page removal from the WordPress CMS… I know how to do that myself. I do not have the server information or access.

Desired Skills
MySQL, PHP, WordPress

So, “James Siri” wants to hire someone for less than $500 to take down this blog post about Dean Kosage and doesn’t care if blackhat methods are used. For those not familiar with the term, blackhat is computer slang for “a computer security hacker who breaks into networks or computers, or creates computer viruses.” I don’t think the authorities will look too kindly on any illegal hacking attempts to remove this blog post.

“James Siri” claims that the article is very bad and contains false press. Really? Let’s look at the original article one more time, shall we?

Claim #1: Dean Kosage left WWDB in 2010. Kosage’s departure wasn’t exactly filled with hugs and kisses, and he’s not listed on the Worldwide Dream Builders website.

Claim #2: Dean Kosage has his own system called Freestyle. Looking at Dean’s LinkedIn page, I see he’s listed as the Founder, Owner at Freestyle.

Claim #3: With his own System, he’s poised to grab more of the System profits than ever before. Since he doesn’t have to share any profits with the other leaders at WWDB, I can’t see how this claim is false. Of course, if he has no followers, he’s not going to make any money, now will he?

Sadly, AmwayBlog is no more, meaning, the article that announced his departure goes to a page not found error page (archived page here). Nor is the MP3 of WWDB leaders discussing his departure still available. Perhaps someone downloaded the MP3 for safekeeping can send it here.

So “James Siri” and Dean Kosage, where’s the false press? Is it in the comments section, where a certain The Cult, Happy Girl and Susan Miller came to Dean’s defense, only to have it be revealed that they were all commenting from the same IP address and the same people?

Perhaps Dean should take a page out of Orrin Woodward’s playbook and spam the search engines with dozens (hundreds) of fake blogs praising the leadership of the Kosage.

On second thought, maybe he should just take down the elance job listing and give up.

    If the content is really “false press” as is mentioned in the ad why try to get rid of it illegally? Dean Kosage must have desperate needs to lead to this desperate deed to have the webpage removed.

    See https://www.elance.com/q/legal user-agreement\

    (iv) may constitute or contribute to a crime or tort;
    (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, or otherwise objectionable;

    Maybe it is time to inform elance about the ad with the request to remove it. Of course you should not remove your post here. Maybe even add this information to the original post about Kosage’s effort to sabotage your weblog.

    Amthax…hahahahahahaha! Very funny how these guys in the industry just keep digging their hole deeper. It never ceases to amaze me what people will do! Perhaps they all should ‘care’ more about their ‘character’ than their ‘reputation’…he should give Orrin a call, so he can learn the tricks of the trade and then orrin would see this as an opprotunity to promote or get him in life and change his whole life in every area, including how to clean up the reputation well at least teach how to game it… hahahaha…because that is what Orrin claims they care the most about…is their character! over reputation. Yep and that shows.

    Now on a serious note: I am sure the authorities would be real interested in this ad!

    I agree webelieved! MY GOSH these guys will stoop to anything…won’t they? He thought he had a ‘reputation’ problem before, it seems he just added the ‘icing’ on the cake with this one!

    What I find the most histerical of all is I haven’t seen anyone comment about this for a very long time and as Amthrax pointed out the article is over a year old! Perhaps it is Orrin who put the job ad out and threw Dean under the bus so the rest of the site could be illegally begone? Just kidding…well kinda…this is something I could see orrin doing, knowing what we know.

    Geez, when will they ever figure out that real ‘leaders’ are RESPONSIBLE for their own ‘reputation’ and it is earned by your actions! In my opinion, By putting out this job for hire ad, they have just CREATED themselves, the worst ‘bad’ press you could get!

    Holy smokes…I thought the surprise factor was gone…hahahaha…this I vote for earning the top press article for today hahaha!

    Amthrax~ I have said this before your site is going to be famous or as it seems certainly TOP on someone’s list as the most important blog ever! Perhaps you should turn this into the World Wide Amthrax Press, get an LLC and I would even vote you for TOP journalist of the YEAR ‘award’, don’t worry about getting any degree we will self-promote you as one…all of us could promote and vote you as #1…but then we already think your pretty cool…lol!!!! Besides that it is the center meca for the authorties who at least get some good insight on what is happening! These things only confirm and validate everything we are saying!!!!

    Way to go who ever tipped you on this deserves a BIG pat on the back for doing the right thing! Cheers to you, whoever you are!!!! 🙂

    Thanks ‘me’….doesn’t seem like they are care about the ‘legal’ way, the ad confirms this but it does speak volumes on what is said on here just as we have asked many times if this site is nothing but lies, from quitters, haters, etc. then why doesn’t Orrin bring the facts to prove us wrong..because he knows we are telling the truth and the truth hurts! Welcome to our world!

Who is coming up with the cash…it is always follow the money trail. May this site is like reading a horror and comedy novel all in one book!

    I would bet money that “jamessiri” is working for Orrin. Orrin is pretty smart, and also quite unscrupulous. It would make sense for him to use Dean Kosage’s name to make it look like someone else, but what he is really looking for is anyone who can interfere with this site, period.

  9. January 3, 2012 9:28 am

    As usual, someone trying to defend Amway or a qustionable leader ends up doing themselves more harm than good. By now, people probably forgot about that old article but now it will be revisited with interest. 🙂

  10. January 3, 2012 9:31 am

    @FormerRoundTable – I get a few hits every day/week for people searching for Dean Kosage, so I think it’s Dean who’s initiating the blackhat reputation management via elance. It’s important to note that some of the content on the original post is now defunct. AmwayBlog.com is gone and the YouTube video with Dean and Brad driving the Porsche has been taken down. Who benefits the most from getting rid of this content? Dean.

    As for Orrin, I would look instead at the Anti-Amthrax blog. An anonymous blog seems more like something he would do, given his past exploits as Qrush.

  11. January 3, 2012 9:35 am

    Everyone – The job listing was taken down by elance today. Reason given was:

    According to Ty, Amway blog was hacked and I think he has it back up now.

  16. January 4, 2012 11:14 am

    @Joecool – Doesn’t look like the blog is up. I wonder if the hacking attempt is related to the elance job listing to take down my page?

    @webelieved – yes.

  19. January 5, 2012 6:42 am

    It’s inconceivable that a so called leader can be so incredibly foolish. These are the people I am supposed to take advice from to lead my family into the future? These are the people I am supposed to hand over my weekly cash to for all those CDs, books, yak yak. Nah never will happen. The have no credibility at all. These are truly charlatans, they know it and that is why they do dumb things like this so they can attempt to hide their real selves from their blind followers.

    BTW I looked up the word “Siri” – it’s swahili for secret. Is it an attempt for either a kosage cohort to remain so, or maybe Dean himself, or perhaps O pukester is up to some attention deflection tactics? These MLM charlatans “leaders” are idiots!

    I loved your comments. Idiot Charlatans and O pukester…LOL

    You are right not signed up yet..It becomes so blatantly obvious that they do not live by any real or true principles…they live by the con men’s gaming principles and want nothing more to gag and shut people up….it is the only thing they believe works or can hide any truth..to try and keep their dirty liltle ‘secrets’! But as all con men do…they get found out!

    Rather than walk their talk as God fearing Christians that almost all of them proclaim and fix the core problems they resort to bulling, threats, illegal hacking, bogus websites, bogus self-proclaimed status and gamed awards..etc.. that only reveal their true character and make them look like the little bully school children they are.

    None of them show real leadership…only abuse and hypocrisy…So shameful and I hope the world is reading this. Can only image with those tactics how they treat their mates or spouses.

    Great summarization Speak. I am reminded of what is done in politics. If you can’t take your opponent on on principle you try to destroy their character Funny thing is that it is backfiring on them and they are just pissing the people they screwed over off and fueling the fire for redemption………..Their vanity blogs will not help then where they are going……..

    This is getting ridiculous. Is there anyway Amthrax, that these companies posting these ads could tell someone who is behind them and paying for the ads since they are against their policies? Maybe some authorities that could investigate this, need to be contacted.

    The oDesk job listing was made around the same time as the elance listing, so it’s probably the same person. These sites have policies for protecting employers and contractors’ identities so I doubt that they will reveal who made the request to us. The best thing we can do is report them for condoning illegal hacking in the attempt to take down the content of this site.

  28. January 16, 2012 2:46 pm

    The actions of this guy Kosage just made me curious

    See the information I found. 😉 Speaks for itself, don’t you agree. I have nothing to add.

    Dean Kosage Honored by Cambridge Who’s Who for Excellence in Motivational Consulting

    http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/press-release/dean-kosage-honored-by-cambridge-whos-who-for-excellence-in-motivational-consulting-58505.php

    When people use impressive college names like Cambridge or whatever, but just a little different, to promote themselves, I always get suspicious. I was right to be thinking that way. So what does it mean to be honored by Cambridge Who’s Who?

    The comments on the last site are interesting. Is it really a huge honor to be recognized by people associated with Cambridge Who’s Who, who willingly make the suggestion to be associated with the honorable college Cambridge? I think you know the answer.

    Well, similia similibus curantur or (I think) in English birds of the same feather flock together.

  29. January 16, 2012 8:27 pm

    @me – good find. Yeah, these Who’s Who “awards” are nothing more than vanity press, similar to what Arthur Carmazzi and Orrin Woodward like to engage in. These “leaders” will do whatever it takes to make themselves look legitimate in the eyes of their followers and prospects.

    Fake accolades and bogus credentials are the M.O. of MLMs. Monavie is guilty of it in spades. Their lineup included Alexander Schauss (fake PhD), Jose Allongo (fake doctor of the year award), Lou Niles (doctor impersonator/genuine child molester), Paul Clayton, etc. The board of USANA (Dallin’s former company) pulled similar stunts (claiming academic credentials that they didn’t really hold). And the evidence is convincing that Orrin and the TEAMers are guilty of similar transgressions — i.e. fake leadership guru status, fake “Who’s Who” entries, etc.)

    These thieves and charlatans will stop at nothing to make themselves look important and well qualified, when in reality they are neither.

    I thought you would find this to be hilarious!! Looks like Dean took the advice of someone on here and started a blog about himself 🙂 which I’m sure he is the editor and moderator of and any negative feedback would not be published. Pardon my French, but what a narcissistic ****! Is he serious?!? Wow

    Hilarious to the nth degree…bordering on sad. Did you read his intro:

    “Dean is just a guy who like most of us in spite of him self has become in most peoples eyes successful.

    He never claims to someone he is not and most of all he is about uplifting other people . He loves to meet ambitious and captivating people , but most of all he likes to empower people.”

    Seriously??? How is that supposed to help his reputation? All it proves is that he’s incapable of writing coherent sentences and doesn’t have even a faint grasp of the rules of elementary grammar and punctuation. And I’m not even addressing the insipid content itself.

    Ever notice on some of Dean’s sites/blogs that he himself is the one that posts the comments? Not letting anyone with their own opinion get in to possibly reveal some truth about him?

  34. May 18, 2012 12:26 pm

    THE TRUTH ABOUT WILLIAM AKA “DEAN” Kosage is here:
    UPDATE SCAMWAY DEAN KOSAGE is a MOST WANTED DEADBEAT DAD for his Child Support Obligations to his 15 year old Child. Want to see evidence about this con-man who has gone missing. Eat your heart out:
    https://fortress.wa.gov/dshs/csips/mostwanted/frame.asp?action=build_poster&db=default&yr=0&mo=0&item=21&dt=5/17/2012&bi=4333103
    Looks like he can’t even pay 1,100 a month and has gone missing. Yeah what a dreamer, too busy to take care of his child and meet his basic support obligations. Wonder if this crook has jumped the border to go to Mexico. Want to see his court history? dw.courts.wa.gov remember that link. He has two names by the way. William D Kosage is his real legal name, his alias is what everyone knows him as Dean Kosage. People sometimes use aliases to make it difficult to find the dirt that exists on them. There is some real dirt including Domestic Violence and what appears to be criminal history. These are all Government Sites, official WA state Government sites.
    dw.courts.wa.gov
    46 05-04-2012 NOTICE OF APPEARANCE Notice Of Appearance And Objection
    To Venue /pet
    47 05-07-2012 RETURN OF SERVICE Return Of Service
    It looks like he is back in court again this time trying to get out of child support obligations, but he went missing from the Most Wanted site you can see. Probably he is a Pro Se appearing by telephone. Wonder how he is going to pull this one off now. I don’t know where people say this man is so nice, I’ve heard he does far more worse to people than good, think of how much downline “Pro-Sumers” he’s frauded out of millions just to make Scamway a buck, and collect his pennies to the dollar kickback, but the books and tapes now that’s where he for sure has made a killing. Might as well bootleg that crap. Dean the sociopath puts it in proper perspective. This nut-job likely on medication, couldn’t find his way out of a wet paper bad with directions.
    His court records are here:

    I got a request from some African computer “guru” who threatened to hack my site (www.amquix.info) if I did not take down the page on Dean Kosage. He said he would be paid by someone who knew D.K. He asked my to take it down to help him out until he got the money and then I could put it back up. He even told me he would give me a third of the money he received to take it down just for 3 days. The guy was very strange.

    BTW: Dean Kosage is on the Washington State Dead Beat Dad
