Does the Datalink Company actually exist?Datalink has had at least the following incorporations:
- Datalink Communication Products and Technology Inc (Washington) – inactive 2003
- Datalink Technologies Group Inc (Washington) – inactive 2008
- Datalink Technologies Inc (Washington) – inactive 1993
- Datalink Communication Products and Technology Inc. (BC) – inactive 2002
- Datalink Solutions Inc. (BC) – inactive 1999
- Datalink Technologies Group Inc. (BC) – inactive 2006
- Datalink Technologies Group Canada Inc (BC) – inactive 2005
- Datalink Technologies Inc. (BC) – inactive 2001
- Datalink Systems Inc. (BC) – inactive 2009
- Datalink Technologies Gateways Inc. (BC) – active
- Datalink Technologies Gateways, LLC. (Arizona) – delisted – incorporated April 13, 2011; after the start of litigation by Equustek.
After 2012, Mr. Morgan Jack decided that actually incorporating companies was no longer necessary as no one seemed to care, so, he just began inventing corporate names. Some of these are the following:
- Gateway Technologies Inc.
- Multigate Communications Inc.
- American Gateway Corp.
- Advanced Industrial Networks Inc.
- The latest virtual company is Industrial Automation Company with an Ohio address
The telephone numbers were actually answered by a company named Re: Messaging Solutions Inc., in Abbotsford, BC, and were forwarded to Datalink, wherever it was. As of Oct. 25, 2011 the phones were being relayed to Mexico.
The address in Ferndale, Washington, is actually that of a mail drop company, International Market Access which “exists to help Canadian companies market and distribute profitably in the United States“.
The address in Phoenix is used for Multigate and Gateway as well as Datalink and is provided by Regus who claims that “a business address in the right place and a local contact number answered in your company name can make all the difference in business. A virtual office for only $99 per month.
The address in Tuscon, Arizona is actually that of Speedmail Plus, who “can handle all of your packaging, mailing and shipping needs”.
At present, Datalink pretends to be an American company, even including American flags on its websites. However, the only thing American about Datalink is its virtual presence which is the above mail drops. It is exceedingly unlikely that Datalink is registered with the IRS or any other government institution. Mr. Jack didn’t pay any business taxes in Canada, so why would he bother to pay them to the U.S.?
The only director is Morgan Jack of unknown address. He was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and has operated the various Datalink companies out of Vancouver, Canada, for at least the last ten years. Mr. Jack sold off multiple Vancouver residential condominiums that he owned through a convoluted family relationship after the litigation began.
Datalink is not listed with Worksafe BC as all companies that have employees must be in order to operate in British Columbia.
The company has not responded to the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia’s (APEGBC) request for clarification of its claims to providing engineering services.
The actual “Country of Origin” is not generally known for the Datalink GW1000. Nor, are any actual premises for Datalink generally known.
The GW1000, MGC2200, and VPN may or may not be manufactured by Datalink. Datalink claimed for years that the Equustek DL products were their own.
