    This is one of the most absurd complaints I've ever received, i.e. a convicted fraudster (Francis Santa, a.k.a. Frank Santa) now operating a reputation management firm threatening to sue OffshoreAlert on behalf of a client (Spartan Capital) that he claims owns the copyright to a liquidation petition filed against it.
