The West Saint Paul Police confiscated around 150 items including electronics from the FORMER West St. Paul location of PC Gecko. Contact the police with your serial number, description and proof of item ownership.
Most of the items listed were filed as police reports for stolen property. There's a good chance that they pulled police reports from other cities going back a few years. If you have not yet filed a report, do it. It's the best way for them to track down your stolen property.
The warrant signed on October 3, 2012 by a Circuit Judge. The confiscation occurred the following day.
It couldn't have happened sooner because PC Gecko, Charles Schuck III, was asked to leave by the owner of the property Oct. 1., given until the end of the week to vacate. Charles Schuck had stolen from people at businesses leasing space from the owner of the property. [continued below]....
He still has the West St. Paul address listed as his office location online as of 12/9/12. DO NOT GO THERE. If you have a dispute with PC Gecko, Charles Schuck III, contact the local police to get your property back. All stolen property was confiscated.
PC Gecko, SEO Lenz, Wise Guyz, Charles Schuck III has been at more than 4 "business" locations within the last couple of years. People get tired of his thieving, lying, and chaos and ask him to move on.
Do not bother to talk to him or reason with him since he speaks only gibberish. Anything you utter is an opportunity for him to twist and try to "best" you. He doesn't know what he's doing. The only part he "gets" is stealing your money and then dodging your calls.
When they cleared out his space, they found two air mattresses, a lot of clothing and a filthy kitchen set up in a back room. He was living there with his "girlfriend", two kids, and a rotating group of people some of whom he met off the street or from shelters. His rent wasn't more than a few hundred dollars and he still couldn't afford to stay there without help with the rent.
PC Gecko's owner, Charles Schuck III, is the pathologically lying conman. He comes off as a "nice guy", always trying to be "helpful", has sooo much "potential" and wealth to offer, and will immediately tell you that he is the victim in everything and come up with stories of how he's done nice things for customers and they turn on him and do him wrong. He is faker than fake.
Part of the con (so he looks more presentable, has different places to stay, and have new people to feed off) is that he also only dates or tries to date multiple women at a time, ALWAYS with very young children, especially girls to, um, take care of them. BE VERY WARY. Please note this.
The difference between the fraud he presents and the truth is like night and day. He currently has two felony convictions and a misdemeanor conviction under his belt. If justice is served, this latest round should give him his third felony. 2 Felonies:
(((link redacted))) Misdemeanor from 2009. Enter name: Charles Schuck. Birthdate:
Video links to two local TV news stories on his scams (2011 and 2012) :
Here are just a few links (not being sarcastic) of complaints:
(((link redacted))) Fauna Classifieds found a wealth of scams and fraud committed by Charles Schuck when he was an expert "reptile breeder" (well over 100 pages from the board of inquiry alone), one scam going back to the late 1990s:
I met Charles Schuck at one of our MN Herp Society meetings in the winter of 2005. I had brought a few normal 2005 ball pythons I bred with me to sell after the meeting, if anyone was interested. Charles Schuck was interested and agreed to buy 3 males for $120
. I don't remember why he didn't take them that night - maybe didn't have a way to pay yet? Regardless, I brought them to his house at a later date and he paid with a check. Maybe I was too trusting, but I guess I assumed that people I knew there would warn me if they knew he were not a good guy to deal with. Well, when I cashed the check the account was closed. Afterward, people at the meetings told me about him and said I wasn't going to get my money back. When I contacted him he told me that his checkbook had been stolen and he would get the money to me. I never recieved anything. (((redacted)))
I have heard from Charles twice today. Once stating that he is getting his account fixed today, the other asking for the links for the snakes again. I have not been paid yet....not that anyone expected anything else. I will, however, update everyone IF he does come through today. We will see. (((link redacted)))
His email address at target is not longer valid. His phone number at Target is no longer valid. He told me that he was just promoted to asst manager when I first talked to him. He never told me about all of the other "positions" that he had. He told me, originally, that he couldn't get too much time off or time on the phone because he just got the position and was worried about losing it. I doubt that anything he has ever said has been the truth. I sent the following email to him several days ago, and have not had any reply from him since I called him on 2/3/06, and then I used a phone number he didn't recognize. (((redacted)))
The project was pretty big, he was going to pay about $5,800.00
for a complete forum design and a lot of custom modifications. EVERYTHING was complete on his website and he failed to pay. The design is below that we came up for him. Everything that he requested, was 100% Complete. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=598178#post598178
From 1998 - WARNING !!!!! Please be aware of a rip-off. The company name is Success Communications in St. Paul MN, the name is Charles Schuck III (Alias Sugar Bear) and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I sent a substantial amount of Money for a Nino Palmtop and a Palm Pilot III to Mr. Schuck five weeks ago and still do not have anything to show for it. I have heard all the excuses from no boxes to the Nino falling off the shelf to there being a strike at the airport. The last 2 weeks there has been no communication from Mr. Schuck, one can only guess that it is a scam. Please dont get caught as I have. Please pass this information on to everyone that you know for everyones protection. (((link redacted)))
found a phone number for one of the directors for the Minnesota Minimoto league. I called the number and was informed that Schmuck has a very bad reputation up there. He screwed over the league oil distributor as well as their welder. In addition, he has been in and out of jail several times for various reasons. (((link redacted)))
I'm not sure why Charles is having a difficult time paying I have seen him show an interest in lots of expensive reptiles and lots of reptiles such as cresties, if memory serves me correctly alligators and other things. Judging from what he says he is virtually a multimillionaire with the successful businesses he has run. Did you ever sell any of the industrial refrigerators Charles?
I will translate for you Charles: "Diffilute I pay with you have many thangs. I ran my bizness and have employes who make lots me money and they no i am atrusting and i dont no whut you guyz think i haven't done worong anything. she owes me my money for taking snake she gave me. no life you guyz have sorry my fought i will pay back." (((link redacted)))
You are so full of S#%@ it is unbelievable, you work at Target, are spending 10k on reptiles ?, can't provide names of anyone you purchased reptiles from? or any references from anyone that has sold to you?, no one has come on to defend you or say they did a deal with you ?, and you don't have a paypal account or credit card so you have to send out 25 money orders ?? 10K divided to 25 sellers you must be buying some pretty low end stuff to boot. Post receipts from 22-25 money orders totalling 10K all purchased on the same day and I will print this whole thread out and EAT it. We are not idiots. (((link redacted)))
Wow... this guy is totally clueless... and i mean TOTALLY CLUELESS.. I have never seen someone try to put up so many fronts in my life. On one site he is asking about how to build an incubator and he has a "MASTER CRAFTSMAN" working for him, and so far in this forum, he has done contracts for Microsoft, and now is working on a "Big project" for Target, and he breeds reptiles (yet knows nothing about incubators it seems) and he races pocket bikes and has sold over 200 of them... lets see... he stated in one of the previous posts that he has to hang up the phone because he was "in class"... what is it... you going to school, you the owner of a billion dollar company, you the president of a billion dollar company, you race pocket bikes, and you SELL pocket bikes, you breed reptiles, and you STILL have all kinds of time to post on here to reply to EVERY post that someone makes? LOL i have never in my life seen someone SO full of it in my life. (((link redacted)))
