“They haven’t paid me a penny, but they’ve taken everything I’ve owned in my whole life.” - Paul Stanford

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Paul Stanford Paul Stanford was fired June 10th. BLINDSIDED, he would say. He received a certified letter from S.M.A.A.R.T., the corporation he owns a majority of, telling him he was out.

Instantly, Stanford’s share in his own company was reduced to as low as 3%. According to Stanford’s attorney, the issuance of an additional 23 million shares is a deliberate attempt, done in bad faith, to dilute Stanford’s shares in S.M.A.A.R.T.
