Default **fraud Alert**

**FRAUD ALERT**

I am writing this because i have been scammed by a teen names Jesse Hoge from Freeport Ohio,

over a year ago i sent this kid 2 10 channel SP50's UHF with chargers, battery's and antenna's, and a 20 Channel UHF M1225 with mounting bracket, antenna and mic,

all the equipment was used by just very little, and in mint condition,

for over a year, he told me his name was Bernard Hoge, who is his father, he was dumb enough to give me his address, phone number, but sience then i have lost it,

but,

i do have his email address, hghoged@yahoo.com and his AIM Screen name is hghoged

it has been over a year, i have not received anything from him, i recently got in contact with this scumbag, and this was his reply

"the m1225 is on its way iw ill be there by tuseday by usps flat rate shipping no tracking when using flat rate shipping no tracking number is given
also it was sent out today @ 10:30am est
if any questions email me back asap the radio does work and power up with no problems"


i saw an add on the Twowayshopper.com stating that he needed an M1225 non working with no power cable or mounting bracket,

so he was trying to send me a dud radio back, which i have never recieved,
he lives in freeport ohio and i was wondering if anyone else has had a run in with this kid?....i am going to call the detectives or whoever, so if anyone has any info please shoot it along to me!

thanks alot

Sorry this has happened to you friend. Trading stuff by mail is the most difficult and risky. It sounds like you had some good equipment. I can only suggest that next time you sell your gear for money, like on Ebay or wherever, then take the money and buy the other items that you want.

good luck

i did that, and it ended up being him and his cousin using fake emails to give me references, that is something also i forgot to mention that his cousin James from Ackron ohio also helps him rip people off, so please dont deal with these people, they are kids who rip people off,

i recieved an email from a man who stated that jesse email him looking for a M1225 that would just power up to light up and nothing more, so it would be a dud and send it to me, so i am very frustrated at this point because i really want my equipment back, i dont know the chances of getting my stuff back, but it is very very frustrating because i am a stupid forgiving a**hole, and i should have known better,

but i really appreciate all the help that everyone has givin me, thank you very much

If you used the United States Postal Service you can contact your local USPS office and request to talk someone about fraud. If you use USPS with insurance (automatic 100 USD) you can also research if there's an opprotunity to file a claim.

USPS is slow .... very slow. They do investigate claims.

I had someone try to rip me off and all I had to do was threaten him with mail fraud. I gave him 3 days to send me my money or I would file. I had the money the next day.

In a civil case, you need to contact the local circuit courthouse of the plaintiff. If your seeking criminal fraud complaint then you should contact the non emergency police to file a complaint.

If you contact your district Attorney's office you probably won't get anywhere. It depends on the policy of the attorney's office.

For future sales, use eBay and only accept PayPal. It is more secure that way, and if you get scammed, you will probably get your money back (in time).

It happened to me more than once (but in reverse - I was the buyer) and I got my money back via PayPal. Both times the dipsticks never sent the items.

Not to be nit-picking or anything, but isnt this theft and not fraud?

Fraud = Promising something in exchange for payment, and not delivering once payment is received

Theft = Taking something and not paying for it
