Fox Shocks coughs up blood blowing frauds Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise

Fox Shocks screws the pooch on corporate responsibility

Unchallenged since February 2008. Why hasn't Fox Shocks addressed these charges? Because they've been caught, dead to rights.


Fox Shocks supported Death Threats on a website they sponsor and refuse to accept responsibility of backing people who don't pay their taxes and threaten the lives of racing fans. CLICK HERE FOR THE UPDATED STORY ON THE TAX CHEATS FOX SUPPORTS

Yes, we talked to John Marking at the time of this publication, but he's the "Meanest man in Off-Road", right? (belly laugh placed here). His only response was a lame attempt to blacklist us. He said, "nobody likes Baja Racing, do they?".

He never refuted accepting the death threats or the real threats against Americans in Mexico.

Our response: Our readers do, John. Because now they get to know the REAL, you.

The smoking gun exposed!

From a fruadulent non-profit solicitation for years and without any business license for years, thousands of off road fans and racers got poled by Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise. A recent article in Baja Racing exposed Rasch and Guise to the point that they immediately, upon reading the article, rushed into the City of Huntington Beach to pay the required fees to make their business fees current, after being overdue and non-paid for years! Even before the city got its warning letter to Rasch! They were forced to pay for three years to be current.

John Marking of Fox Shocks off road division not only blew this "advertising", Rasch and Guise actively deleted travel warnings and banned people who merely had concerns about travel to Baja Mexico. Now that everyone knows about the Baja crimewave, such profit oriented content control shows Fox Shocks, Rasch and Guise for who they really are.

What did they delete? And who did they ban?

This is the actual traveler warning that was deleted by Rasch and Guise:

Original post [9-28-2006]

This is Kathy Aviles of El Mirador and I have just returned from a trip on the Baja. I had spoken with another traveler who had warned me about some Mexican gangs in the Ensenada area who were targeting tourists. The story went that if you attempted to use the toll road between Ensenada and Tijuana(going north) between 11pm and 5am - you would be attacked. Several American tourists were attacked, shot and all their stuff was stolen. The person telling me the story said that the local police was doing nothing about it.When I was going north on Sunday the 24th, passing the first toll booth from Ensenada I noticed a police car pull out just as I came up to the gate. A few miles down the road the police car was driving in the middle of the roadnot allowing any cars to pass. We were given a police escort all the waypast the main beach area just before the second toll booth. Also, the AFI Police were stopping all vehicles and looking inside of them.The Mexican police are trying to help - but it was only 7pm when I crossed that point. So, travelers beware!!!""

This post was deleted by Rasch and Guise.

Those posters who placed relative safety oriented Mexican travel information on Rasch/Guise board are known by Baja Racing News. They were banned for only one reason. They placed information that was contrary to what Rasch, Guise, et al. wanted distributed. Contrary to the false notion that there are no concerns to take when on the roads of Mexico!

They want no information that tells racers to be careful about their travel to Baja Mexico, or what precautions to take. Even as late as this winter, a massive deletion of Mexico travel posts took place.

If this original warning was allowed to be viewed, it is entirely possible that the Hall family would have known not to be exposed as they were. For your information, the criminal ring responsible for the noted attacks was caught. But, as we all know now, another took its place, with very damaging results. They kidnapped the Hall family at the very same location used for over a year by two other crime rings, kidnappings, shootings armed assaults.

The Baja crime wave now rules Baja Mexico. Tourism is reported off by 90%!

The actions of Rasch and Guise and Fox Shocks is all acceptable to sell off-road shock absorbers, sell off road dvd's and pimp a scam to sell more crap. But not acceptable to those damaged by this race seasons crime wave! Corporate responsibilty and Fox Shocks, Rasch & Guise, oxymorons.

The City, State and Federal Governments have questions for Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise

February 15, 2008


Proven by Government officials and no denial since our original story exposing Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise. Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise violated California State Law for years by soliciting the "desert racing community" as a "non-profit", when in fact, their website and associated sales of merchandise was not a bonafide non-profit.

And what is the official response from Klaus Rasch and Curtis guise legal representative, Travis Clarke? Here it is, in it's entirety, "You really have way too much time on your hands.". Their complete response, no denial.
Not only did they violate State law, they violated City of Huntington Beach law for years by not having a business license and not listing their mail address as a 'postal mail box', in violation of Federal law. All in an obvious attempt to avoid detection. The local postal service said, "they are trying to hide!".


If you contributed to the "desert racing community" by giving any money to this scam, by buying their DVD's or advertising on the website or buying a t-shirt or any other means and you want your money back, no matter when you contributed, click here: for the form to solicit the State of California Attorney Generals Office for a refund. Contact for any assistance in this process.

The City Of Hunting Beach confirmed to Baja Racing that Klaus Rasch scurried into the City to get his permit, that he should have had for years, just after notice of our story. On Oct 4. Sales from the site proven without a city permit for five years and violating State Law for seven years.OUR ORIGINAL STORY: This picture is Klaus Rasch, owner of an offroad website that for years claimed it was a non-profit solicitation. A website that for years falsely solicited for non-profit donations. They had no not-for-profit papers, required in the State of California. They collected thousands of dollars over years under this false guise. They also had no required City license for years.

The Government Post Office in Huntington Beach California, where your postal records are filed, the representative named 'Guy', wants to know why you are violating Federal law by placing on your website an address that says 'unit', which you have done for many years, which is false and you must use the term, 'PMB', Postal Mail Box. "That means they are trying to hide", we were told by the Postal Service representative. From the website today,
16787 Beach Blvd. Unit 123
Huntington Beach, CA 92647

The City of Huntington Beach, the representative named 'Patricia', wants to know why you, Klaus Rash, are violating City law by conducting business in their city and placing on your website an address that lists Huntington Beach and you have not paid your business license fees since 2002.


Klaus came into the City of Huntington Beach offices on October 4 and paid their business license fees current to 10-31-08. He is listed by the required permit as a computer consultant. Because Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise had not been current since 2002, he was forced to pay three years of back fees to become current with the City. So, from 2002 until 2007, five years, Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise and their website and related sales, operated in Huntington Beach without a required by law, business permit.

A represenative with the City stated today, "He came in even before he received the City letter mandating his permit violation".The State of California Attorney General Charitable Trust Division, wants to know why you, Klaus Rasch and Curtis Guise, are violating State law with your website stating that it is "a non-profit" site for SEVEN YEARS, from 2000 to 2007. There is no state record of a State required registration of a non-profit company in your name or your websites name.

From the archive, "Welcome to ****-******.com. This is a non-profit web-page dedicated to serving the desert racing community".Baja Racing has learned in some cases, companies that have claimed to be charities for over seven years, can be forced to disgorge all their revenues from those years.
