NAAS Launches National Trademark Fraud Campaign


National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS), its attorneys, investigators, NAAS DEIA agents, are mounting an aggressive world-wide multi-media campaign to investigate and prosecute groups and persons who claim or imply affiliation, approval by, and/or accreditation by National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS). We are investigating the fraudulent misuse of the world famous 'NAAS' mark, counterfeiting of the famed 'NAAS' logo, and global piracy of 'NAAS' intellectual property.

We are investigating attorneys who aid, assist, abet, or provide material support to criminals in furtherance of violating U.S. federal laws, and who accept monies from blatant trademark infringers.

NAAS has teamed up with the global anti-piracy STOP initiative developed by the U.S. Patent & Trademark office, and other agencies that combat intellectual property theft.

We are pursuing the criminal prosecution of trademark infringers, the manufacturers of fake 'NAAS' logos, the manufacturers of counterfeit 'NAAS' t-shirts, companies and organizations that illegally use the 'NAAS' mark on their websites, and their co-conspirators.

Non-profit organizations, donors, web hosting companies, universities, data repository companies, and advertisers that sponsor, fund, or provide material support to offensive trademark infringers are also targets of scrutiny, and possible litigation.

The choice is simple: If you do not have an official NAAS License, cease and desist your use of the 'NAAS' mark or remove ALL references of the mark from your literature and website.

We intend to track down, locate, identify, and prosecute each and every person(s), group(s), and agencies who violate U.S. federal laws with regard to matters concerning NAAS. There is no person or agency that will be spared scrutiny if they are perceived as violating the intellectual property rights of National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS).

The known principal organizations and persons currently under both criminal and civil investigation with respect to matters concerning this topic are:


a.
David G. Steadman, President
Northwest Association of Accredited Schools
1510 Robert St., Suite 103
Boise, ID 83705-5194
URL: http://www.northwestaccreditation.org/; and, throughout their website.
#Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, encourages their respective State commitees, sub-groups, and alleged ‘NAAS’ accredited schools to engage in the same conduct that itself is under investigation for;


b.
Joan Messer

#Joan Messer is a professor at Jones County Junior College. The American Junior Academy of Sciences is suspected of a wide variety of offenses, including trademark infringement, and defrauding donors by improperly inducing the same with fraudulent references to 'NAAS'.


b.
Dr. Don Jordan
College of Arts & Sciences,
University of South Carolina
323 Sumwalt
Columbia, SC 29208
URL: http://www.cas.sc.edu/cse/jordan/
#Don Jordan is a professor at the University of South Carolina. He illegally and fraudulently implies that his organization is approved by and/or endorsed by NAAS. His colleagues have dropped use of the 'NAAS' mark, but he has thus far failed to respect U.S. Trademark laws.

c.
Attn: Dr. James J. McCarthy
The American Association for the Advancement of Science
1200 New York Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20005
URL: http://www.aaas.org/programs/education/naas.shtml
#This organization is staffed by persons who are employees of universities and colleges that are also members of National Association of Student Financial-Aid Administrators (NASFAA); the members of this organization has an extensive history of student-loan fraud, and crimes related to financial-aid.

d.
Attn: Gary Kipp, Executive Director
Association of Washington School Principals
1021 8th Ave. S.E.,
Olympia, WA 98501-1500
This group is associated with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. Collectively, they encourage their respective State commitees, sub-groups, employees, and illegally-named ‘NAAS’ accredited schools to engage in the same conduct that itself is under investigation for.


Many of the these persons and organizations have direct ties to National Association of Financial-Aid Administrators (NASFAA) or its counterpart National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). NAAS Media Reports detail that these organization are typically a base or breeding ground for financial-aid criminals, student-loan fraudsters, and loan-steering. Both of these organizations have been repeated subjects of past NAAS NEWS Media reports.

As of the date of this posting, the groups named above appear to be the most blatant, offensive, deceitiful, and persistent violators and infringers of the 'NAAS' mark. None of there persons have been qualified or authorized to use the world-famous 'NAAS' mark in commerce. Their use of the 'NAAS' mark is illegal.

NAAS QUOTE:
Honest and ethical persons need merely to be reminded of the need to follow the law, and they will comply; whereas, criminals need to be handcuffed, publicly embarrassed, and/or ordered by a court of law to comply with the same instructions

Honorable Boise State University


Boise State University drops phony 'NAAS' accrediting agency. With little prodding, Boise State University is to be commended for deleting all references to the misuse of the 'NAAS' mark on its website, and deleting the multiple false claims made by Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. If only the U.S. Attorney of Idaho, and the other agencies and universities that support Northwest, were as honorable, perhaps a series of NAAS media reports would not be necessary.

Since the U.S. Attorney of Idaho apparently is a person who cannot be trusted to enforce federal laws, and who is apparently incapable of protecting the citizens of that state, hundreds of Idaho citizens and thousands more have called upon National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS) to resolve marketplace confusion, investigate 'NAAS' accreditation scams, and to enforce the perception that U.S. federal laws actually mean something.

Many Idaho residents believe that the Idaho Dept. of Education is nothing more than a corrupt rubber-stamp alter-ego of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. It is unclear to many Idaho residents whether or not Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is a branch of Idaho government. Judging from the commingling of assets and use of the Idaho government page, it is believed that the Idaho Dept. of Education is run by the same suspicious gang that is employed by Northwest Assocation of Accredited Schools. It is this incestuous relationship that the U.S. Attorney of Idaho may be trying to conceal and protect. Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is NOT a branch of any government.

An argument can be made that Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is engaging in illegal conduct, and is deliberately attempting to confuse consumers about the origin of its phony 'NAAS' products and services.

Investigation of NAAS Mailbox Impersonation

To:
Mail Box Clerk of CrossRoads Station,
6210 N JONES BLVD, LAS VEGAS, NV 89130-4001


Subject: Mail-box Impersonation by unknown persons falsely assigning responsibility to box NAAS Mailbox

Possible Persons of Interest: All Nevada-based natural persons associated with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, SPM Resorts, Inc., Meridian Financial Services

Dear Mail Clerk, and to Consumer Affairs of the United States Postal Service, etc., et al.

¶It has been brought to our attention by various residents in and around Nye County, Nevada, Clark County, and other locations that persons may be impersonating the use of the official NAAS-USA Fund mail box without the express written consent of NAAS-USA Fund. Specifically, we are receiving mail correspondence from random persons that claim to have originated from the NAAS Mail Box 750356. These letters claim to be harassing to the recipients, and are harassing to the actual box holders. In fact, one hand-written suspicious letter from Gary G. Wakefield, 1850 Isaac St., Apt. C, Pahrump, NV 89060, claims he has been in contact with U.S. Postal Inspectors and that he has blamed the “occupants” of Box 750356 despite the fact that mail-box impersonation is apparently quite easy.

¶We suspect some of these persons are acting on behalf of certain persons named in NAAS Media for the precise purpose of chilling free-speech. These mail pieces coincided with the publication of unflattering NAAS Media reports about Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, and SPM Resorts, Meridian Financial Services, and all these companies have used their employees or attorneys to access the NAAS.ORG website. These persons all have ties to the same area where these letters appear to have originated from. Also, we have electronic evidence that verifies certain facts about the suspect(s).

¶PLEASE NOTE: Improperly addressed correspondence to NAAS-USA Fund will be discarded per NAAS EAS/N2 Rules. Box holder is not responsible for any correspondence other than its own. NAAS-USA Fund, does not, has not, and has no reason to engage in any act(s) that resemble the act(s) descibed by Wakefield or other person(s).

¶A complete version of this letter will be posted on the NAAS Blog, along with U.S. Postal phone numbers. We encourage any person with accurate information about the identity of the persons to contact your office.

NAAS Malibox Impersonation Scam

Dear
United States Postal Service
CrossRoads Station
Attn: Management
6210 N JONES BLVD
LAS VEGAS, NV 89130-4001

Dear sir:
Thank you for your hand-written letter. According to your letter, you want us to believe that someone is misusing our mailing address as their own. Ok. Ok. we believe you, for now. Is this really surprising?? Think about it. We have the most accurate, most biting NEWS reports on the Internet. Our latest presentation deals with scams and crimes related to Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. They have offices in Las Vegas, Nevada. It seems kind of curious you wrote your later at about the same time we have been publicly profiling this organization and its sub-groups.

Whomever sent you the letter(s) certainly did not use their own address. Duh??? I suggest, you take some DNA samples, and run the letters through the database, and match the times where that person(s) was.

Why would any person associated with NAAS be sending you anything?? Our investigation reveals that you are not qualified or eligible for any NAAS Award(s). It is obvious that we are rather too busy to be engaging in the sort of non-sense that you describe. Nonetheless, we appreciate your correspondence. It simply re-confirms that someone apparently thought enough about the effectiveness and reach of NAAS products and services as to impersonate our mailing address and sucker other people into believing that the letter came from an NAAS agent.

Since National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS) cannot be touched with respect to our superior service, products, and conformance with the federal and state laws, the only route left for desperate persons profiled in our media reports is to bribe, influence, trick, or convince the U.S. Postal Service, and one or more of its crooked employees, to engage in deceit, violation of the federal laws, and violations of U.S. Civil rights.

This is an example as to why we do not promote or solicit correspondence via the U.S. mail.

Your letter seems rather phony. Are you really a U.S. Postal Inspector?? Is so, do you have anything better to do with your time?? Can you provide to us the name of your U.S. employer, or the Postal Inspector you spoke with?

As you know, anyone can use your mailing address in Pahrump, NV and make the exact claims. Why is your claim more legitimate than ours, or anyone else??

Editors note: Has anyone been receiving similar letters claiming
to have received letters from a NAAS mailing address??

NAAS Accreditation Scams Video

NAAS-NEWS has published a video report that pertains to Trademark and Accreditation scams. For the record, the mark 'NAAS' and its logo are registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

This video officially disclaims association with Northwest AssociatIon of Accredited Schools (and their sub-groups); Association of Washington School Principals; Medford School District 549C; National Association of Academies of Science.

The American Academy, LLC, the Idaho Virtual Academy, and several purported online schools associated with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools HAVE NOT been accredited by the official and legitimate NAAS. For a listing organizations and their sub-groups that imply approval, accreditation, or affiliation with the official National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS), please refer to our NAAS Imposter reports, and the report entitled Investigation of Northwest AssociatIon of Accredited Schools.

The mark NAAS is registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as the official NAAS logo. Both have achieved incontestable status. Unauthorized use of these marks are illegal. Reference U.S. Trademark Registration Number R/N# 2,334,969.
