Universal Communication Systems, Inc. and Subsidiary AirWater Corporation, Together With Company Chairman Michael J. Zwebner, Re-File an $18 Million Law Suit in United States District Court for

the Southern District of California Against Internet Poster James Coughlin of San Diego, CA, Using Internet Alias "IrishJim44"

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 22, 2005 -- Universal Communication Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: UCSY), its wholly owned subsidiary AirWater Corporation, as well as company chairman Michael Zwebner, announced today that they have re-filed the law suit against James Coughlin, Internet alias "IrishJim44," for claims totaling the amount of $18 million. The law suit has been filed in Federal Court in the Southern District of California.

In a statement issued today, Michael J. Zwebner said: "As the Florida courts denied jurisdiction over this case, we have now re-filed suit against James Coughlin in Federal Court in San Diego CA. Our suit is the first of a number of upcoming law suits all against Internet posters who have conducted an unrelenting vicious and malicious evil on-line campaign of harassment against the companies and me for several years. We believe and allege, based on the actual posts made, that this defendant, as well as a number of co-conspirators, embarked on a deliberate and planned evil program of defamation, libel and the repeated publication of an unrelenting barrage of false information, false innuendoes and lies, as well as acts of cyber-stalking and harassment, all for personal illegal and immoral gain, and to cause maximum economic and commercial damage as well as severe emotional distress to myself."

In a further statement, Michael Zwebner said: "Defamation and the unrelenting libelous posting and publication and knowingly posting and reposting of false and libelous information, contrary to the belief of many anonymous Internet posters, is not protected under ANY US laws, even the First Amendment. Cyber-stalking and harassment are Felony Crimes. This defendant, and a number of others, acted in conspiracy with extreme evil intent and malice, at all times hiding behind a supposedly anonymous Internet alias. We intend to aggressively pursue legal action, to uncover ALL the anonymous posters (aliases) who have engaged and continue to enact on-line defamation, cyber-stalking and harassment, and then take action and file applicable law suits against ALL these posters, as well as criminal complaints with the police and or the FBI, however long it takes. We are absolutely intent on actively pursuing this course of action, to bring these evil defendants to justice. We strongly advise all other Internet posters to seek legal advice BEFORE making wild, accusatory, false and defamatory statements on the Internet and elsewhere."
