Last Time About Ben Behrouzi, LeapFish or Dotnext… Promise!

The EndBen (Behnam) Behrouzi, the CEO of Dotnext Inc., and his startups (namely ePerks and LeapFish) had been often at the center of my attention in the past three years. I had good intentions to abandon the topic in the past. But there was always something in the back of my mind that prevented me from staying away from Mr. Behrouzi and his schemes. Just little over two years ago, the CEO of LeapFish and Dotnext Inc., being dissatisfied with the outcome of the lawsuit he brought against me, he purchased two domain names ( and with a clear intent to damage my reputation – a threat that Mr. Behrouzi has never carried out. As of today it appears that Mr. Behrouzi will not be renewing the above mentioned domain names. This of course leaves me with no reason to continue my coverage of Mr. Behrouzi and his “startups”. Should the above mentioned domains be renewed, I will make sure to post an update.

Happy, healthy and prosperous 2011 everyone!

    Great detective work. It is a shame that he went to such measures in an attempt to ruin your reputation.

    Unfortunately it his own reputation that he ruined in the process. Some of his “poss-LeapFish” websites/startups do not even mention his name.

      @rahulteak I have never claimed to be a writer. I would suggest for you to be more creative with the comments you leave on people’s blog, I almost marked this comment as spam. Best of luck!

    Used to work for Ben at Leapfish, and YES, it was a total scam. Still get together occasionally with ex coworkers from Leapfish and we are all a bit embarrassed about our time there. I now leave Leapfish off my resume. Thanks for your persistence Vlad, you’re a good man.

    Ben has pulled a trifecta, is down, is now parked at Godaddy and iHype is giving an aspx 404 error. A tiny bit of victory for those that have fallen for his various scams.

      @Anonymous re: Trifecta

      Both iHype and LeapFish are up. But I did notice in the past that both websites would either give a 404 or a 503 error. I don’t think it’s anyone’s fault but their web-hosting provider. Ironic nevertheless. A “search engine” that meant to “revolutionize” they way people search the Internet is down hours (or perhaps days) at a time.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Congratulations, Vlad. I’m sure it’s a huge weight off your mind to know that this scumbag can’t touch you at this point.
