Darryle Douglas in contempt, arrest warrant issued
For his role in scamming Zeek Rewards victims, September 2014 saw Darryle Douglas his with a $2.2 million dollar default judgement.
Rather than pay back the victims he stole from though, Douglas sought to further profit by attempting to launch Auction Attics. Douglas professed he was going to pitch Auction Attics to individuals on an authorized copy of the Zeek Rewards affiliate database.
Douglas’ antics didn’t escape the notice of the Zeek Receiver, who filed a motion requesting the court compel Douglas to hand over the Zeek database he planned to market to, submit to a deposition and turn over requested financial records.
That was in October, with Judge Mullen on the 3rd of November ordering Douglas to appear at a hearing on December 3rd. At the hearing, Douglas was to explain why he shouldn’t be held in contempt for not following the court’s previous order.
The December 3rd hearing came and went… and according to an order issued on December 10th, Douglas was a no-show.
At the December 3rd hearing the Receiver presented to the court pretty much what I’ve outlined above. In addition the Receiver also showed that Douglas (right) had been made well aware of the December 3rd hearing, leaving there no excuse for his ignoring it.
The Court took evidence at the hearing from the Receiver and from counsel for Mr. Douglas and is satisfied that Mr. Douglas received notice of the hearing well in advance of the hearing date.
The Court finds that Mr. Douglas received notice of the September 15 Order and has violated that Order.
Determining that Douglas continued conduct would continue to harm the Receiver (by way of non-cooperation and payment of the $2.2 million default judgement), Judge Mullen went on to order
that Darryle Douglas is in civil contempt.
It is further ORDERED that Mr. Douglas shall be incarcerated until he agrees to comply in full with the Court’s Order dated September 15, 2015.
The United States Marshal is hereby DIRECTED to issue and execute a warrant for Mr. Douglas’ arrest and incarceration until he can be brought before this Court and until he agrees to comply with the Order in question.
As at the time of publication, whether or not Douglas has been since been arrested is unclear.

so, darryle douglas just closed his eyes and pretended that if didn’t see the court, the court couldn’t see him either?
he should be arrested just for being a complete idiot!
I can say this the Zeek Rewards is still a haunting thing. I still have to pay taxes for the whole $1,000 I made of this scam.
I one feel bad I was part of a scam, and two am paying for it and not in a good way now to uncle Sam.
I got screwed like everyone else… Thanks T Le Mont Silver.
Help me out here. How do you figure you are paying for it and got screwed from your $1,000 you made in Zeek?
If Zeek would have been legal, would you still be claiming you were screwed and still paying for it? Or would you just not have paid taxes on it?
I am just trying to understand what you meant by your comment.
It could have been worse. The Receiver was going after people who made at least $1,000, and more, in Zeek, and having them return their illegal gains; or at least agree to a settlement with him. Thus the reason for my questions.
What I’m saying is my funds get held up in the processor system and because it was considered a ‘gain’ I have to pay taxes on it.
Never seen a dollar of it, not sure how this can happen but I got tax papers from the receiver.
Not saying I have issue paying taxes on something I actually got.
Thanks for the explanation and clearing that up for me. I knew I was missing something, but wasn’t sure what.
“I got screwed like everyone else… Thanks T Le Mont Silver!”.
Well, if it’s any consolation here’s his reply to you and everyone else….
Not sure how long it takes for an arrest warrant to be entered into the system and ready for service, but so far no warrant for Darryle Douglas has been received or served in Orange County. He is not in the OC Jail.
Not only did I check online to see if the warrant has been served and he was in custody, but I also called and spoke with the jailer and he confirmed the warrant had not been received by them.
The US Marshal Service is now under the OC Sheriff’s office.
Apparently he’s on the run –
Auction Attics website has been suspended and the Facebook page abandoned since early December.
Rather odd that his arrest warrant is not showing for Orange County by the Sheriff’s office. It should at least be in the system, but it’s not.
Not doubting he is on the lam, but the arrest warrant should be on file with law enforcement here.
this is a conversation recorded on jan 3, 2016 on the auction attics FB page:
auctionaddicts.com was updated on dec 16, 2015 and is registered to domonique douglas, and a contact email of darryle douglas is also provided in the whois information.
So uh what, change the name to Auction Addicts and run the business while on the run?
uh well, we know darryle douglas is not the sharpest pencil in the box…
Well, he was sharp enough to get in Zeek’s inner circle early and steal over $2.2 Million Dollars.
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. Let it be.
What about those us us scammed by Daryl’s recent scam in Auction Attics?
Thousands were collected in August-Nov., and then he vanished. Does the zeek receiver know about this? Some say he ran out of money from zeek and had to come up with a new ponzi.
