On his gofundme.com page established in January 2017, he claims he answered the IRS demand letters which he states went unanswered. He claims since he felt he had done nothing wrong that he and his wife in June of 2009 wnet ahead and moved to Ecuador. He claims not to have heard another word from the IRS and then it happened on June 23, 2016, at his isolated home in the Andean country of Ecuador. At 3:00 A.M at his isolated home, masked Ecuadorian police and U.S. State Department agents raided his residence placing both he and his wife in custody. He was told he would be deported and his U.S. Passport was revoked and Ecuadorian visa was cancelled. He also claims on the gofundme.com page that he was denied his Miranda rights.


At the present time his page has raised just over $500 in six months. Also the individual that prepared Daryl Giesking’s tax return was sentenced to ten years in Federal prison for her fraudulent scheme. READ PRESS RELEASE HERE.
