(Alabaster, Ala., July 13, 2012) ----- Mr. Steven Schurmann, CEO of PowerConcrete Building Technologies, have claimed to be a victim of a major Plaswall franchisee fraud conducted by Mark Taylor, CEO of Sterling Construction and Development Corp. According to Mr. Schurmann, Taylor has scammed him out of $750, 000 in total. The money was laundered by Taylor in commissions and franchise fee for a Plaswall franchise, which Mr. Schurmann later found out to be non-patentable in the US.

Lackluster quality of Sterling’s product and Mr. Taylor’s unethical and corrupt business practices forced Mr. Schurmann to resign as Plaswall franchisee in the US. Mr. Schurmann now strives to warn public and investors to be aware of risks involved in doing business with Sterling and other allegedly fake ventures by Mark Taylor. Briefing about his experience in his own words, Mr. Schurmann explains, “I don’t expect to get my money back. My own business is going strong right now. Yet, I just want to spread awareness to protect consumers and people who wish to invest in this fraudulent Plaswall franchise.”

Mr. Schurmann has officially reported Mark Taylor and his "Character Assassination Associate" Richard Waters, AKA "Dr. Thomas Jennings" operating under more than 7 other FAKE ID's on LinkedIn to the FBI for franchise fraud, patent and trademark fraud as well as for cyber harassment. According to him, he has been a victim of threats and harassments from Mr. Taylor and his associates for over one year. According to Mr. Schurmann, the attempts are not just limited to maligning his business reputation using 7 fake LinkedIn IDs and business profiles. In addition to these attempts, Mr. Taylor and Richard Waters have also pulled smear campaigns and personal attacks against Mr. Schurmann’s character and his family as well as more than 900 LinkedIn business associates.

When I initially refused to agree to Taylor's suspicious and seemingly corrupt business activities, he threatened to revoke my franchise and "donate" all the commission money I earned to Nigerians. After resigning as the master franchisee in July 2011, I received threatening phone calls. They started to discredit me as a scammer but that was not what they resorted to. They crossed all ethical lines and posted negative content regarding my family, including my four year old son, adds Mr. Schurmann.

Mr. Schurmann insisted that he wants to warn the public at large and also wants them to decide for themselves. He defines his experience with Mr. Taylor and Plaswall as a big blow to his finances, as well as psychologically traumatizing for his whole family and business partners.

Backing his claims and accusations, Mr. Schurmann has created a website where he shares his story as well as concrete evidences against Mr. Taylor, Plaswall and his associates. In this regard, he has created a series of videos to expose the lousy quality of Plaswall products. An authorized document from Mr. Schurmann's Patent attorney asserts that Mark Taylor does not have any Patent protection for his Plaswall design or product in the US.
