Default Swedish ops Iamtheonlyreal1 Robert Jackson litigation

Hey , I am trying to get all the people together that have paid this guy for parts that never received anything to contact me. I have a lawyer lined up, but need to find out the scope of his fraudulent behavior, and welcome anyone that wants to try and fight to get reimbursed.

It's a bummer when someone in such a small group turns out to be such a bad guy.

I am on the hook for a lot of money, and know that many others are as well.

Thanks

Read people, please. He's working on a resolution against this guy, not just complaining about him like most. Glad to see someone taking legal action when needed around this place! Please keep us informed as you are able to, within legal limitations.

Remember to get a paper trail from anybody you can. Word of mouth is great but it's even better if you can see agreed upon transactions with money changing hands. Then it's off to small claims.

I'm stating that there's several threads he can search to find more people. I recall at least 4 threads.

Send a message to everyone in that thread.

I believe there are a few guys from a few other boards in there, so you may be able to go to the other boards and get more people.

I'm glad someone is finally doing this

Just saw this a$$ hat on FB (Volvo Amazon Group) posting about his car being filmed by Discovery for Battle of the Builders. I'm not involved - and am sorry for all those that are, could one of you email Discovery and make sure this DOESN'T happen. They can't be promoting a scam artist who build his car based on stealing from others.

Until a district attorney somewhere is willing to prosecute this clown on criminal charges or a postal inspector prosecutes him for mail fraud, I doubt anyone is going to get restitution.
Sometimes all it takes is a letter from a lawyer with a threat to get things moving.

He is located in Madil oklahoma it's a small town. You can call the local police to file a police report there or your local police department. Also you can call the better business bureau for the state of Oklahoma and report your stuff. You could contact an attorney to talk about legal action.

He does great fab work as I've literally seen it in person but he's just a two man shop so I'm not sure what happened.

My lawyer said that depending on the amount of money involved and if people band together in one suit then it may be possible to not only have a criminal case but he could also be forced to pay restitution via levies and asset seizure etc.

I have all my receipts , bank records , emails etc.

interestingly after my last post he did email me- first time after his "check in the mail" did not arrive. I called 10 times daily and as yet have never received a call back.

I am going to give him the chance to make good on his email promise to handle this but in the mean time - anyone who is in the same boat as me- please send me a PM . In the mean time I will give him another window to make good on his promises.

+1 those that have been ripped off need to *JUMP ON BOARD* with the OP

Once Internet Volvo Parts Scammers learn "lawful prosecution" is *their reward*...it'll stop.

I wouldn't...I'd see to it he's *nailed to the wall* for what he did.

Don't waste any more time. The promise is just a stalling tactic and waiting any longer is just letting him rip off more ppl.

Normally this isn't the right forum for this but I hope you nail this guy. Comments about other sellers will be deleted immediately. Keep this one on track.

Probably because all the people who got ripped off won't pickup the phone and call the local pd.

You just saw how this works. The majority let guys like this get away with it.
So he wins over and over again. No consequences = he keeps doing it. Same pattern as any of these types of guys.

You guys who got ripped off by this crook should do a better job of trolling his youtube page and videos.

This guy reeked of suspicion since he joined the forum. Everyone got all buttmad when I pointed it out long time ago. Oh well, can't make everyone happy.
