This guy scammed me out of $5000. Last I heard he died in the driveway of someone he had scammed before. Anyone know this low life and if he is infact DEAD?

The last I heard he was living with Rhonda Chalus in WDM a woman that had supposidly invested hundreds of thousands of dollars with him and gotten her family members to all do the same. To verify his status I would contact either the Dallas County Sheriff's Department in Adel, Iowa / or the West Des Moines Police Department Detective Unit.

Have not seen anything in the Des Moines paper about is passing - no Obituary. Good luck, I'm sure a lot of people would like to find him (alive somewhere). I also heard that that he had a number of expensive vehicles registered to him oin Florida, so he may be living down there on everyone's money. If he only got you for $5000 count your blessings.

Well I don't know where he lives as of yet, talking in email, I actually thought he told me FL though and I saw a mention of that by someone in post 2.

I doubt very much it's the same guy, I just came across this msg board by pure accident, not because I am even remotely suspecting this guy of anything. That's why I was asking how this guy is accused of scamming so I can see if it's at all related.

Jeff Rich has run almost every type of scam that you can imagine. I can't keep track of the number of felony convictions that he has for bad checks and related crimes of fraud and theft all across Iowa. At one point he bought his girlfriend a new M-Benz from a dealer in Omaha and wrote them a bad check for it - imagine her embarrasment when she had to return it to the dealership there and he had already disposed of her car. Another time she gave him approx.$50,000 worth of jewlery to sell for her on consignment, only to find out that he had actually pawned it when he was out of town. If you are doing an art deal with a Jeff Rich I would be sure to have the local police department run a background check on him before turning over any cash money no matter whether you think it could be the same one or not.

This guy is supposed to be dead, but there has never been anything in the newspaper about him and he doesn't appear that way the last time we checked the death records on line using his name and SSN.

He died in 2008. I know his family and he did have a heart attack in the driveway of some woman he was scamming. His obituary was never in the paper. You can find it on the Oakcrest funeral home of Algona website.
