They need a followup story.

 

I did that yesterday (senior editor Erin) after some FB discussion,  and from the email exchange they don't seem too interested in looking into things. Multiple emails may help, but, I sense they are not an investigative type magazine, and would rather bury their heads in the sand and pretend it never happened.

The man has three names and yes, I will be contacting the newspaper about him and determining which part of the Federal Government to contact. Any suggestions?

So far I have heard from the Sherrif that his uncle (I think) has been contacted but I have not heard much more. I will be following up.

I told him to man up yesterday on his FB page and take care these issues. He deleted my post but not my friendship. I was against harassing his church but that was before he used church tax exempt status as part of his scam. The church needs to know as their 501C3 status could be in jeopardy. This borders on a federal fraud case. Was there any mail correspondence? Mail fraud could also be tacked on.

First off watch what you are saying on here. He can still come in and view the posts and on the Facebook dicussion. He is already looking for a new place to live, so I am sure that he has seen some of the chatter.

The reason he has not deleted your "Friendship" because he can still see everything you are posting on Facebook.

I just submitted my report to http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx which is an online complaint division for internet fraud. I would recommend anybody else who has been wronged by this man to submit their story.

 

However, please take the time to fill out the forum wholesome and completely.

I don't want our cases to be ignored because someone posts something like:

 

"dexter scammed me outta laods of cash. He's a bad bad man who should be sent to prison 4-ever!"

 

I appreciate your professionalism when filing your report.

To keep him from reading your posts on Facebook, simply create a special friends group with him as the only member. Then you can block what posts he reads on your page.

Contact your post master! Let me explain before you think im crazy. If you made payment to this person that crossed state lines its considered mail fraud and its a felony. I think you said you sent it Western Union and it did not go by mail it should still be able to be filled under federal law as long as it crosses state lines.

 

Lets dive into a few other things here as well in what I would do. If you have any emails from him I would do a ip search on that email on were it was sent from http://aruljohn.com/info/howtofindipaddress/  there are free sites that will also help in this. Once you have the location I would call local law enforcement in that area but I would not count on them doing anything. I would also look into western Union and see what fedral law he broke and who to contact regarding filing criminal charges. I would have to say if it crossed state lines you have a case. If not it will be small claims. Its Federal if it crossed state lines and I would use the word Federal when talking to his local cops and Western Union in hopes to get them to do something for you.  Im sure Western Union said you need to contact the local law enforcement were this happened. Thats a ploy to get rid of you. I would tell Western Union a Federal Crime took place using there services and it is there issue just as much as it is yours. I hope that helps!!!

I remember this old thread from earlier this year when we received the following email earlier today. I find this to be an all too eerie coincidence. My gut tells me he's still at it:

Dexter Drake  Yesterday 04:15 pm

Hello,

We are in need of some new LED light strings to replace a bunch that got 
damaged while in storage this spring. We have a large light display our 
church does every year right outside of Austin, all proceeds go to help 
purchase Christmas presents for kids in the surrounding areas that wont 
have any. Our old vendor went out of business, and we had a terms account 
/purchase order account with them. I was hoping to see if you would be able 
to extend or open such an account for us with you so we can get the lights 
we need, and pay in full shortly after our opening night, nov 19th, once we 
have donations coming in? The church fully backs all accounts. We just 
began setup, and are in a bit of a time crunch, if you would be able to 
help us out, this would be an amazing blessing! Please let me know! thanks

Wow! Wow! It seems crime does pay.

JHomes & I both contacted the sherrif where Dexter used to live and his parents still do and he uses church and kids in need for an excuse to swindle lights.

There is a special place for you Mr Dexter Williams (aka Drake) or whatever your new last name will be!

ATTENTION:

If you have been "taken" by Dexter in any way, or if you have been approached by Dexter, please email me.

I am collecting information to determine the scope of his crimes. Please email me any and all evidence that you have: invoices, email threads, proof of delivery, etc.

Do NOT include person bias but simply the facts.

I appreciate your assistance.

I am a "Newbie"...My first time here. I have purchased 2 light o rama controllers and software from this person “Dexter Willams” and he told me he would ship them to me. I have not received my items. I paid him $300.00 through paypal. I decided to do some research and found this same add in Huston, Denver & Boulder Colorado, Philadelphia and more. I live in Denver. I believe this guy Dexter Willams is stealing money from people other than me. I was trying to replace and re- do my Christmas display this year because of the flood we had here in Colorado. Allot of my Christmas items/ displays were destroyed and I was trying to rebuild it. He knew this! This is how low this guy really is. Taking advantage of a flood victim and all those spending every last dime to put a smile on the faces of children! I hope he enjoyed my money on his vacation he said he was going on! Maybe a little vacation behind bars will teach him a lesson. I will get justice!

Please let me know who to contact. I am going to file a report with the FTC.

Here are his adds. I also found him on Facebook & Youtube. I refuse to let him get away with this!

 

Christmas light O rama controllers and Cosmic color ribbon

I have 2 16 channel controllers for sale, fully assembled with enclosures and used 1 season. They have heatsink, and come with the software and all cables, I also have 3 CCR's for sale. Also used 1 season comes with contrllers for them and cables and software. Asking 150.00 for each item. or 600.00 flat for all 5. Email me ASAP if interested.

He keeps doing it because he can. My next door neighbor is a police officer and told me I have very little recourse.

Dexter got me for 2 CCR's in February for $400.00

The good news for you is that you did the transaction through Paypal.

Dispute it through Paypal and you will get your funds back no problem.

Dexter will never reply back to Paypal to dispute it.

He won't have the proof he shipped anything!
