Case No: 11-cv-1055-FJM DECLARATION OF DAVID S. GINGRAS IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFF’S REPLY TO DEFENDANT EUGENE SELIHOV’S MOTION TO STRIKE ANSWER I, David S. Gingras declare as follows: 1. My name is David Gingras. I am a United States citizen, a resident of the State of Arizona, am over the age of 18 years, and if called to testify in court or other proceeding I could and would give the following testimony which is based upon my own personal knowledge unless otherwise stated. 2. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the States of Arizona and California, I am an active member in good standing with the State Bars of Arizona and California and I am admitted to practice and in good standing with the United States District Court for the District of Arizona and the United States District Court for the Northern, Central, and Eastern Districts of California.

  2. 2. 2 10297-82/MCS/MCS/995987_V1 DECLARATION OF DAVID S. GINGRAS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 GINGRASLAWOFFICE,PLLC 3941E.CHANDLERBLVD.,#106-243 PHOENIX,AZ85048 3. I am counsel for Plaintiff XCENTRIC VENTURES, LLC (“Xcentric”) in this matter and I have represented Xcentric since the inception of this matter. 4. On August 18, 2012, I received a CD in the mail from defendant’s counsel, Chris Ingle, which purported to contain material responsive to Xcentric’s Motion to Compel and the subsequent court order dated July 23, 2012 (Doc. #47). The contents of the CD are shown below: 5. Upon reviewing the actual files on the disc, I determined that the five text files shown above (named “compl_companies”, “compl_complaints”, “comp_posts”, “panel_users” and “scaminformer_code”) appeared to be documents relating to the first part of Xcentric’s prior Motion to Compel; i.e., materials responsive to Xcentric’s RFP #1 which requested information about the source of thousands of infringing pages copied from www.ripoffreport.com and reposted on www.scaminformer.com. This is material which the Court previously ordered Mr. Selihov to produce in its order dated July 23, 2012. Case 2:11-cv-01055-FJM Document 53-1 Filed 08/23/12 Page 2 of 5
  3. 3. 3 10297-82/MCS/MCS/995987_V1 DECLARATION OF DAVID S. GINGRAS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 GINGRASLAWOFFICE,PLLC 3941E.CHANDLERBLVD.,#106-243 PHOENIX,AZ85048 6. With respect to the other two items on the disc -- both were folders, one named “SI Emails” and the other named “SI Emails 2”. 7. After reviewing the contents of these folders, I determined that the folder named “SI Emails” contained approximately 1,454 pages of correspondence, all of which represented emails from Google to Mr. Selihov which related to DMCA notices that Xcentric sent to Google regarding infringing pages on www.scaminformer.com. As a matter of policy, I am aware that Google regularly and automatically forwards copies of all such DMCA notices to the administrator of the website where the allegedly infringing pages are located. The contents of the folder named “SI Emails” appeared to be copies of such correspondence from Google to Mr. Selihov. 8. The only remaining folder on the CD was named “SI Emails 2”. Upon inspection, I determined that this folder contained 316 individual text files with nonsensical file names such as “._5d63f11208659a19b8a42ada15a4d88d” and “._9c4ec498f4c029a328d513aec3fa3602”. I subsequently opened and viewed the contents of all 316 files, and they each appeared to contain nothing more than short snippets of gibberish. 9. For example, one of the files contained in this folder was a text file named “._7bf58d88cfa36dc7a6774afeb74c33e6.txt”. The entire contents of this file are shown below (including spaces as in the original): Contents of File ._7bf58d88cfa36dc7a6774afeb74c33e6.txt Mac OS X 2 ± ã ATTR `»š ã ˜ K ˜ K com.apple.quarantine q/0000;5024f28d;Skype;ACDC9F01-899E-47FD-9F55- 4C2BAFF3DC20|com.skype.skype Case 2:11-cv-01055-FJM Document 53-1 Filed 08/23/12 Page 3 of 5
  4. 4. 4 10297-82/MCS/MCS/995987_V1 DECLARATION OF DAVID S.

I personally reviewed all 316 files in the folder named “SI Emails 2”, and every file contained the same or similar nonsensical gibberish text. None of the files contained any meaningful information. 11. Based on my review of the CD from Mr. Selihov’s counsel, I have determined that Mr. Selihov has not produced any information responsive to any of the following categories of production requests identified in Xcentric’s prior Motion to Compel, nor has Mr. Seilhov stated that no such correspondence exists: • Any emails to/from any person relating to Ripoff Report/Xcentric/Ed Magedson • Any emails to/from any person relating to obtaining, changing, or withholding administrative access to www.scaminformer.com • Any emails to/from any person relating to money earned from the operation of www.scaminformer.com Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the foregoing is true and correct.
