Jeffrey Beall: Predatory Blogger

Posted on April 15, 2015

Pseudo-scholar Jeffrey Beall is a thug
Demanded ransom US$ 100,000 to re-analyze open access publisher

My name is Petre Dini and I am the President of IARIA, 
I am also victim of Jeffrey Beall 
Actually, this pseudo-scholar Jeffrey Beall is a thug. He uses black lists to create profit. Also he is involved in tax evation and money laundry. 
I asked him several times to remove IARIA from his black list and he promised me to re-analyze the site 
There is not any real reason to have our institute IARIA in his pseudo-list. 

The cost to re-analyze the portal of my organization was 100,000 USD, 
Exactly "re-analyze" was the verb that he used in our phone conversation. Why re-analyze? Who is he that analyzes or re-analyzes Academic organizations? 
What are his qualifications. I am professor in Electrical Engineering with many publications (in IARIA and outside IARIA). Who is this pseudo-professor - money hungry thug? 

Anyway, Jeffrey Beall gave us two accounts in Tax Heaven Countries: One account in a Bank of St. Vincent and another account in Belize. 
We do not pay 100,000 USD for IARIA and so IARIA is still now in his list. 

I estimate that Hindawi has paid to pseudo-professor Jeffrey Beall something like 1500000 (1 million and half) $ 

Somebody must report Jeffrey Beall' activities in American Authorities.
