Hello everyone,
about 4 months ago I got involved with a man Moderator cut: name removed. You see I work with an ebay store (we sell items for the publc and businesses on ebay) and one of our customers had and was still bringing in brand new laptops and desk top computers to list on ebay to sell for him. Well after selling of quite a few I got to talking to him and aparantly he had a connection with a man that had an account with HP. our customer was buying them for $300-$400 from Moderator cut: name removed and we were re selling them for him for a minimum of $800. To make a long story short, being that I wanted in on this venture I put down about an $11,000.00 deposit on what was supposed to secure and buy me roughly 200 laptops. Although it seemed to good to be true, who was I to argue considering he had delivered to the other guy for about 6 months prior and about 50 or so laptops.

Well 3 months later and after every excuse in the book he could give me I asked for my money back. There is no receipt of transaction. From doing further research and from talking to people that know him. It is apparent that this man is a con artist. He is a great talker, and he loves to threat and make up all kinds of stories, but the fact of the matter is that he is all talk. He says that he made 2 and a half million dollars last year. He says he owns 2 houses in Hawaii. The fact of the matter is that he owes quite a few people a substantial amount of money. He sets up fake business's and orders very large amounts of product and does not pay them back. (Hewlart Packard, Galls and quite a few local company's)

Well to top it all off he finally writes me a check for $5500.00 (partial the amount) and when I make the deposit it comes back as a closed account. Big surprise.
This man has been in jail before for I believe writing bad checks.

I have already taken this matter up with the state attorney and although he has 2 weeks to pay me back, I do not expect anything. This man is a con artist and a good one at that.

I was just looking for advice other than what the state attorney is giving me

Thank you
