BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Sean Kirtz, ordered by a federal judge to pay a disgruntled cryptocurrency inventor $405,000 in 2018, is now facing a lawsuit from a Boca Raton real estate firm accusing him of orchestrating a barrage of negative reviews online. The reviews were posted after the firm claimed that Kirtz was attempting to conceal his identity by leasing a condo in the name of his mother.

“Florida’s Best Realty Services, LLC (FBR) alleges that Kirtz posted reviews in retaliation for the firm’s unwillingness to lease a property after background checks failed,” writes attorneys for FBR as part of the defamation action.
From the lawsuit: “Sean contacted FBR about a rental in the name of Gina Parasimo, and then Deborah Kirtz, in early September 2020. (Kirtz and FBR exchanged) several text messages with Sean regarding various condominiums for rent in East Palm Beach County. Ultimately, Sean, allegedly on behalf of his mother Deborah Kirtz (likely because he would not pass a background check due to a 2019 domestic violence injunction and criminal actions involving Gina Parasimo, and 2012 felony drug charges resulting in probation, and a $405,000 final judgment entered by the United States District Court, represented to FBR that Mrs. Kirtz was interested in leasing 3101 South Ocean Blvd., Apt 102, in Highland Beach.”
The suit continues: “In response, FBR sent a rental application, credit application and proof of income request. Sean provided a copy of Deborah Kirtz’s expired driver’s license, email, the attached merchant processing application, and advised an agent of FBR that Deborah Kirtz did not have a phone number to be contacted at.”
“In response to the obviously suspicious statement that Deborah Kirtz did not have a phone number to be contacted at, FBR requested that Deborah Kirtz come to FBR’s office to confirm that she would actually be the one leasing and residing in the property. Onece it became readily apparent to FBR that Deborah Kirtz was not the actual tenant (she already listed Boca West as her homestead residence), Sean advised FBR of the following via text:”
“I reviewed your company 1 star and will pay my company [Mega Van Lines, Inc.] review people to do that for many days on multiple sites. I’m very upset now how professional you were, reach out (to) the listing agent and everything.”
Several negative reviews were then posted online.
Update at 6:05 p.m. Mr. Kirtz apparently posted more after this article first appeared.
FBR is suing Kirtz for more than $30,000, the statutory minimum for circuit court. Kirtz does have a criminal history in Palm Beach County. We note that lawsuits are merely accusations.
