Ran into Steve around 1984...that's when we first met. He told me that he and his brother owned a pole building business near Hanover, PA. Some time passed after talking on the phone. He wanted to go out for a date. He never tried anything bad. In fact, when I was getting out of his vehicle, he pointed out that I almost forgot my (imitation) fur coat. Maybe that was the beginning of a con I would have confidence in him. Glad I didn't leave my coat there as things turned out !! Have a feeling that the girl, " employee", might have caused him to take the wrong road to crime. Was always polite it seemed. We didn't work out as a couple. Looks like that was for the best. My conscience could never allow me to take people for money or otherwise rip anyone off. Steve and his mother...sounds like the apple didn't fall far from the tree...

Knew this guy and dropped him when he wanted me to use my checking account and credit cards for his "business." His mother was always involved and aware of all business, she always took home a pretty penny weekly from her son's business. Too bad she is not doing the time in the cell next to his since she is just as crooked.

We have a fellow who has been scamming across Oklahoma and boarder States for the last two years building pole barns taking the consumer on the second down of money and running off. So far on just we know from some of the victims he has taken almost $100,000.00. He also has a child support case ongoing and tells the courts he has not been working for the last two years.
Most have complained to the Oklahoma States Attorney General but they have done nothing. They will go after a contractor scamming from another State, but not within the state. Maybe the IRS will catch up with him and make his life Hell.
Some people are rally scum bags in life.
