This notice is meant to address the defamatory postings on the web against attorney Athina K. Powers.
Attorney Athina K. Powers has never been a fugitive from justice; she is a licensed attorney in the State of California and a Fraud Examiner, with no pending cases against her in any Bar in the world. As a fraud examiner, one of the jobs of Athina K. Powers was to track and unmask the true identities of a number of criminals that defrauded consumers by disguising themselves as doctors, surgeons, homeopathic physicians, real estate agents, attorneys, and investors. In doing so, Athina K. Powers became a victim of their stalking and cyberbullying.
These individuals assumed the identities of other actual physicians, investors, and lawyers--including but not limited to Athina K. Powers herself, chiropractor Dr. Ildiko Soskuti, M.D., and investor Sonia Carpentier--and they used the social security numbers of deceased persons. Their victims are usually immigrants whose primary language is not English. One of the wanted persons was recently apprehended in New York City for two counts of grand larceny, and is also facing legal proceedings in California for assault and battery.
Athina K. Powers is testifying in the upcoming court proceedings against the aforesaid criminals for their numerous offenses in the US (New York and California). The purpose of any online postings against Athina K. Powers are only meant to affect the validity of her testimony and her reputation.
