Re: Fraud on the hook

The story indicated that some work had been one on the boat, right? Think this would help? I'm sure there's paperwork but in Cruces, we don't even have to prove the debt. I owned a business and almost placed one on a property then. Got worked out with the threat. Sad it had to go that far.

Sad story for sure. In more than one way.

Did you see the picture of the boat? I'm not sure it would be worth it...

It isn't even a Joshua! It may be a red steel boat, but not built as the article states.
It would take an incredible amount of paperwork to seize a foreign registered boat; easier to just have ICE deport them.

Re: Fraud on the hook

In some states, if you pay with a bad check, it's treated as larceny and they lock you up. Seems like the police should be stepping in to straighten it out.

Re: Fraud on the hook

Has this issue been cleared up yet? If it has not, I would seize all property to sell off to recover funds lost.
If he still has item he was to sell on ebay, he scammed you.
I have a friend ........ , I could send him your way,

Re: Fraud on the hook

You know, I understand that Stockwell was just trying to help someone out. Certainly an admirable thing. And I feel sorry for the guy. But co-endorsing a check for someone you do not know EXTREMELY well is a little bit like sending your bank information to a Nigerian Prince.

Re: Fraud on the hook

Yep,
Said to say but Pat should have held the cash the two-three days until the check cleared.

As to Ott - he may be innocent of knowingly committing fraud, but he's certainly guilty of bad ethics and character. It would be one thing if he was buying food and parts - but hanging out and relaxing is a stab in the eye. His business should be refused.

Once the word is out he'll be shunned in most communities without trial or a chance.
That's punishment enough perhaps.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Fraud on the hook

I must say that anyone who cashes a personal cheque without waiting for the funds to clear is asking for trouble. I mean really, what sort of a complete idiot would do that ?
