Default Lubbock Paper Notes Truong Bankruptcy Fraud Allegation

TTU isn't going to help Truong falsify his TTU start date. I bet that
when the USCF subpoenas his payroll records, they will cut him loose to
swing in the West Texas wind.

Chess group levels charges at Tech employee

A national chess organization has accused a Texas Tech Chess Institute
employee of fraud, breach of duty, defamation and conspiracy, actions
that it claims cost the organization hundreds of thousands of dollars
and damaged its reputation.

Paul Truong, marketing and public relations director for the Susan
Polgar Institute for Chess Excellence, denied the allegations on
Tuesday. Truong is the husband of the institute's founder, chess
champion Susan Polgar.

Officials with the U.S. Chess Federation claim Truong lied about his
professional background during his campaign for a seat on the
federation's executive board, giving false statements about having
advanced degrees and making a fortune in executive positions with
billion-dollar companies.

"I don't even know what to say. It's the same nonsense going back and
forth," Truong said of the federation's most recent allegations.

Truong said federation associates make false allegations against him and
his wife because they are jealous of her success and fear losing
political power to her in the chess world.

Legal tiffs between the couple and federation associates began after the
husband and wife won board seats in 2007. Chess writer Sam Sloan accused
them of posting obscene Internet messages in his name, which they've
repeatedly denied authoring. A judge dismissed his suit, but the
federation and its associates have continued to pursue charges against
the couple in various courts.

The chess federation filed the complaint against Truong on March 5,
adding it as a third-party complaint in a libel and slander lawsuit that
Polgar filed against the federation last year.

The complaint also accuses Truong of lying on his June 2007 bankruptcy
filing. It says Truong reported he was unemployed when he was employed
at Tech.

Truong admitted to filing for bankruptcy in 2007 after a divorce, but
told The Avalanche-Journal he wasn't employed by the university until
September. ***The university, which has a policy against commenting on
pending litigation, recorded his start date as June 1, according to
information the university's office of communications provided.***

University officials announced the creation of Polgar's chess institute
about a month prior.

It's nice to see investigative reporting still lives. But it's sad to
see that Truong chooses to lie about matters that are easily
researched.

I received confirmation this morning from the Queens Co. District
Attorney's Office that my bankruptcy fraud complaint was referred to the
US Attorney in the EDNY for criminal investigation and is still there
under investigation. Nothing further is known as the matter is a
criminal investigation open only to those directly involved in that
investigation.

Nobody seems to have noticed the implications of the quote above,
"Truong said federation associates make false allegations against him
and his wife because they are jealous of her success and fear losing
political power to her in the chess world."

http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories...07742251.shtml

This acknowledges that Polgar and Truong are trying to take political
power in the chess world. In fact, they are running three candidates
in the current USCF elections: Lugo, Hecht and Korenman. If their
candidates win they will have the 86,000 member USCF under their
control.
