Richard Bakke is a complete thief Fraud.
My story is very simular though it would take me forever to list all the details.
Basically Richard sold us a Range Rover which he roled back the mileage on, he rebuilt the transmission on it and lied when we asked about this before we purchased it, it had major fuel line leaks that he temporarly sealed with putty, which I had to pull over because an officer informed me I was at very High risk of my vehicle catching on fire. The rims were so bent (we discoverd this when we had a flat on the tires he was supposed to replace before he sold it to us. National Tire would not replace the tire on the rim because it was agains state law. There is so much more..this man takes parts from other Ranger Rovers he has and replaced them on the cars he is selling just to get them out the door. I have found out he is not allowed to be selling vehicles in the state of texas because of prior offenses. He has conned two Spurs players as well they purchased two high end vehicles, Richard Bakke commite fraud when he collected the tax on these vehicles and pockets it..basicaly for example he sold a vehicle at 100,000, but when he went to get the title transferred etc he claimed he sold it for half the price in order to keep the tax money, if that makes any sense...he was convicted on this and was ordered not to sell cars in the state of texas. He did this to us as well...we paid a large amount on tax but when we received our paper work he claimed he sold it for less than what we gave him.
I want to put this man in jail....I have so much information to be able to do this, just need the credibility of others that have been hurt by this ruthless man. He is not worried about being sued because he has so many liens agains him, one will not see the money they are owed. But one thing is he can be put in jail...Please please contact me I am not sure how to leave my contact info, but I am really eager to speak to the person that posted their story before mine. vendila_tennant@yahoo
if that helps..I simply made that email up in hopes someone will contact me to discuss persuing this further. Please excuse my rambling while telling my story, it might not be as clear and descriptive as I would like it to be, but I just hope it helps someone. This man is a complete fraud and has other business helping him commit his crimes. If you want to report him to the DMV do not report him locally as he has friends that work there, you must report him to the Austin, Texas location.
