On October 28, 2011 Reginald Ernest Wood Jr signed a promissary note for a loan I made to him amounting to $11,000. He also offered and agreed in the note that $3,000 bonus would be added to the loan and the total of $14,000 would be paid by the following year on April 28, 2012.

On November 15, 2011 Reginald Ernest Wood Jr signed another promissary note for a loan I made to him amounting to $3,000 and would include a $500 bonus with the total of $3,500 to be paid by December 20, 2011. Both loans were made based on the premise that Mr. Wood was using the money in his business, Evergreen Lawn Solutions, as collateral so that he could acquire two different jobs which would each provide from the profit, once completed, the amount Mr. Wood owed me. Both projects have since been completed and he still has not paid on either loan. I even offered to accepted monthly or weekly payments that he could afford to pay until both loans were paid off, which he has never bothered to acknowledge or even accept. [continued below]....

.....

Mr Wood was not only a business aquaintance at the time of the loans and was actually a family friend. Upon finding out that after the passing of my late husband, I had received life insurance money, I have come to the opinion that he thought he would take advantage of the situation and take the money I loaned him with the intent to never repay that money.

I have taken Mr. Wood to small claims court for the smaller of the two loans and have a default judgement against him for that amount ($3820.00 plus interest at the quaterly rate per Florida Statute 55.03). Unfortunately, the larger loan will have to be taken to civil court and cost more for me to pursue so at this time I have not done anything other than make contact with Mr. Wood to no avail. Winning any court case does not provide for you to automatically get paid. I still have to pay the sheriff's office to seize assets and even prior to that find out what assets Mr. Wood even has that can be seized and I have to pay for all of that. I am just hoping that if he ever files bankruptcy then I might recover some of my money so long as my case in on record.

It has come to my attention, very recently, that I am not the only person to have been conned by this man and his wife. Two other individuals have contacted me and are currently trying to determine what to do regarding their money they lost to Mr. Wood, which is another $6,100, not including what he scammed from me.  According to public record Mr. Wood and his wife have been evicted multiple times over that last several years. I had known of their constant moving around but assumed it was due to them finding better housing and not because they were being evicted each time. There are court documents proving that they have had at least one incident of tenant eviction.

Mr. Wood has also been arrested, and this is currently on the Hillsborough County Sheriff's site. One count was for domestic violence and another for grand theft. I believed that this man has been scamming and conning people for years and his family profits from this. While Mr. Wood states he is financially unstable, as per verbal comments made during the small claims action, Mrs. Wood posts regular trips, cruises, and purchasing of new cars on her facebook account.

I am going to report him to the IRS since I doubt that he has claimed the money he scammed from me as income. If he has not done so I am hoping that at least the IRS can take action against him and his wife for back taxes. I have encouraged the other two individuals who have come to me to do so as well.  I encourage other people who have been scammed by this man to come forward and possibly we can take him collectively to court or at the very least warn others against renting to him or loaning him any money.

I would be happy to speak with someone who might be able to help us in stopping this man from doing any further scams or hurt anyone else financially.

A Lesson in Business

AUTHOR: WTFReally - ()

Many business owners in Florida have multiple entities that have been dissolved (INC, LLC).When entering into a large project with high risk of personal exposure for everyone involved. It is advised that you form an entity for that project.  This protects everyone personally if you have multiple parties involved, in case something happens that leaves you liable. It also allows you to maintain better tax records and accounting for that project.  When the project is over and closed out there is no need to maintain the entity the state does not care as long as they get their fees. Ie.. Edumedia Solutions llc. (Yearlong school playground installs,) Evergreen lawn Solutions INC (multi investor city park projects,) Educational Media Solutions llc (school district project.) you will also notice that I use similar names   

Dawn Please stop..  You are making yourself look crazy and it’s obvious that you know nothing about business. Stick to taking temperatures… when I'm done you will wish you never tried to slander me or my family. Watch for your ripoff report coming soon.

Stating the Facts

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I am going to reiterate all the facts once again so that everyone can see them in one area and confer their own judgment regarding those facts and the lack of proof and continued lies of Mr. Reginald Wood.

FACT: The document Mr. Wood displayed to prove his business Evergreen Lawn Solutions is still active is actually the registration for the fictitious name and only that. That registration remains in effect for 5 years from the date of filing, which was in 2009 it expires in 2013. This does not mean the actual business is active and there is a seperate registration to keep your business active as any business owner will know. You have to file annual reports and pay for that seperate registration to keep the business legally active in the state of Florida.

FACT: Reginald Wood has been arrested twice, once for grand theft and once for domestic violence, both are listed on the Hillsborough County Sherriff's website. He says both situations were dropped which may be the case but honestly anyone being arrested for those kinds of offenses most likely in not an honest man. We are not talking about petty theft of minor offenses.

FACT: Reginald Wood has had 4 businesses, Evergreen Lawn Solutions, Edumedia Solutions, Jump Jungle Amusements, and Premium Synthetics, all but the Premium Synthetics business are currently inactive and therefore should no longer be running legally in the state of Florida. His wife Angela Wood was co owner of the Evergreen Lawn Solutions and the Jump Jungle Amusements.  Premium Synthetic just became active this month.

FACT: Reginald Wood drafted both promissory notes after he offered to pay a certain amount on the loan. Honestly, I suspect if there is any areas of the one loan that are in question Mr. Wood knew it prior to even making the offer since he felt it would in some way make the loan invalid. If the amount he offered as extra on the $11,000 is considered by the State of Florida to be outside the lawful limits for the loan then I will address that matter as needed and suggest that whatever the allowed amount as per the State of Florida then that should be the amount assessed to the $11,000 dollars that he still owes me. I am by no means a lawyer and have no way of knowing what is allowed and honestly the amount he offered was agreed upon by me with the belief he was drafting me a legal document by his own lawyer. I had asked him to draft it with his lawyer and if he did not do so then honestly I was not aware of that and I was made to believe that it had been drafted by a lawyer. I have not collected any money on that loan as of yet and can certainly ammend it to state that only an excess of 18% of the 11,000 owed should be recovered if the State of Florida finds that the Promissory note Reginald Wood drafted is not legal. I have reviewed the laws and the contract is still binding for the $11,000 he owes no matter what the case so I will address the situation with a lawyer and determine the best avenue to take if I pursue this in civil court. Once again con men know how to take advantage of the situation and determine what you know about the laws so that they can take advantage of you in a way so that you can also be hurt.

FACT: Reginald Wood was found the the court to owe me the $3,000 I loaned him in the smaller loan. He has defaulted on that and now is accruing interest on that loan. You will note that the only area where interest is even mentioned in the Promissory note for the larger loan is after he is late on paying the loan. I felt that the excess amount that was offered on top of the loaned money was not interest but an amount he offered as a bonus to the loan I gave him. He indicated that since he would make profit on the job he was doing with that loan money then he was going to extend some of those profits to me by paying the extra $500 on the small loan which the court already has found totally and legally binding, and the extra $3,000 on the $11,000 loan. Reginal still wants to dispute he owes me any money yet the small claims court disagreed with him and he is still in default on that judgement. Reginald states he did not have time to put up a defense and that is why he lost the case. On 05/30/2012 he was notified by certified mail of the small claims action I had against him. On 07/26/2012 we went to court so someone tell me how two months is not enough time to put together a defense to prove you don't owe on a loan? I have copies of checks, text messages (including the ones where he was asked to draft the promissory note)and the Promissory note which all proved he owed that money to me. That is why the court found in my favor. He was also given until November of 2012 to start paying payments on the loan (which I agreed to in the mediation) and he did not pay on it and is now since that time in default and accruing interest on that amount owed. I suspect that when and if I take the larger loan to court the court will advise me of the legal amount that can be assessed to the $11,000 and that will be accepted.

FACT: Reginald Wood has at least two other people he has conned into loaning him money. He knows how to con people and has been doing it for years.

FACT: Reginald Wood has been evicted from one property as noted in the court records and he has a tax lien on both the Jump Jungle Amusement and Evergreen Lawn Solution businesses.

FACT: Reginald Wood has resorted to using profanity, abusive language, and basically non factual statements in all of his rebuttals. Professionally speaking I think that just in light of the type of methods he uses in trying to convince people he is legitimate should be enough to show he is not someone you want to do any kind of business with.

FACT: Reginald Wood was paid for his lawn services by me up front and in total prior to him doing any work on my lawn. He has listed my home on his site as advertisement and even (when I thought we were still friends) went on TV to help me when my HOA tried to have me remove the lawn. I find it interesting that he wants to say he was extorted in some way when he installed my lawn at the price he offered (once again he offered that price and I agreed) and yet he would do those things to help me out. This is someone who will try to twist the truth so that it fits his story and while I am not going to say he never did anything nice for me or my family prior to borrowing this money from me I am saying that he uses people and gains their trust. He was not a close family friend to either my husband or myself since the only times we ever saw eachother was at parties either held by us or by them. They did not come to David's side when he was ill. Yes he picked my son up from school twice when my husband and I were at Moffitt Hospital getting David treatment and my son was being let out of school. I did not have many local people who were not working to go and get my son at those times and he had offered once to take my son out so I did take him up on the offer. Con men do not continually do bad things, honestly they often go out of their way to do what they can if they think you have money they can con from you. Watch any good true story about con men and read information on how con men work and you will see that the things he says he does for those people he owes money to are all prior to getting the money from them. Once he gets what he wants or realizes he cannot get anymore money from you he jumps ship. We are all the crazy ones and he is the only sane one around yet I do not have any lawsuits, tax liens, criminal arrests on my background history. I served my country in the Navy for 6.5 years. I have been in the medical field for 20 years and help patients daily in my career. I have a bachelors degree, overall have far better spelling and grammar than Mr. Wood has revealed. I own my home, pay my debts, and help my family and friends while Mr. Wood does none of those things and instead tries to circumvent the laws and con innocent people.

I am done arguing just take all the facts for yourself and look at all the proof that I have entered and that other people have entered and make your own judgement.

Update on the last rebuttal I made regarding Mr. Wood's statement his business is still active

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I did some checking into that registration number G09000105402 and have found that it is simply the original filing for the fictious name of Evergreen Lawn Solutions and that those are ACTIVE for 5 years from the date of application. It does not mean the business is active and it is also not providing the information necessarily for all the officers of the business. Once this year is over that fictious name can be either made ACTIVE by Mr. Wood or it will become inactive and someone else can use that name. I have once again found out proof of his lies.

He does not know how to tell the truth and keeps hoping I cannot figure out his deceptions but take a look at the Sunbiz.org site and you will see that the number he gave is simply for the fictious name and not for the actual business which is actually listed under the number I indicated in my last rebuttal. That number is for the actual business which IS INACTIVE. You can read about the fictious name and how filing for it makes it an active fictious name for 5 years and nothing more. It does not represent what the actually company is doing. Keep coming up with your stories Reginald. I am pretty smart and know how to figure things out. You got away with duping me with those loans but never again.

Getting tired of this

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I wonder why you changed your business information.....I find that interesting to say the least. I admit I was looking at all businesses under Wood, Reginald and it only listed the Evergreen Lawn Solutions with the 625 Mirabay address as your mailing address and shows it is inactive. The entity number for that business is L1000007895. Most likely as I indicated in my last rebuttal he changed information and refiled as a different company so that he could start things over but it did not work out since his credit both perosnally and business wise is worthless. I will do some further checking and I wonder why you changed your home address as well and did not put the correct address for your physical mailing address on the ACTIVE file since you did state in a last rebuttal that you lived at the Mirabay address. It is all a bit questionable since I know each time your file your annual report you should include the accurate and current mailing address for yourself. So which is it Mr. Successful which address is the correct mailing address because I find it suspicious that you do not update your information each year and since that has been active since 2009 why has it not been updated except to elude the law and those who you owe money to. There is an inactive Evergreen solutions business you opened and then due to dissolution you no longer have active so there is nothing liable or slanderous on my part. Keep trying. You are just giving me more information and it is only making my case more and more solid. I have not done anything wrong either ethically, legally, or in any other way so I don't have to worry about your little threats...which by the way anyone who you owe money to you love to make threats of legal action for various things. Your wife is on many of your businesses as a co owner so providing her name as a co owner of the defunct Evergreen Lawn Solutions is not slanderous or liable but only solidifies my case that that particular business you both owned and are listed publicly through Sunbiz.org is what I said it was INACTIVE. You can pick and choose whichever business you want to but out of five businesses you only have two that are active and one of those you only just opened this month. You are not very good at business no matter what way you look at it and all of those changes and defunct businesses only show how little credit you have as a business man. I am really getting tired of all of this but I really only hope in the long run that someone else will be saved from being conned by you. We will see if there are multiple complaints and proof about your running these cons if maybe there is a way that you can be arrested for what you have done and then people will truly know. We will be checking on all our avenues to getting if not our money back then you being punished criminally for your cons.

Get Your Facts Right

AUTHOR: WTFReally - ()

Dawn Why are you lying again I have been in business since 2009 sunbiz.org Registration NumberG09000105402 active in addition to me being in business I am the sole owner and Angela's Name is on nothing not 1 single document of my active licensed business she has never talked to you about an investment or loan. She never even liked to talk to your crazy A$$. Not only am I licensed in Florida I’m licensed in other states as well.  So you have set yourself up for a slander lawsuit so I hope that you get everything that you needed from this post.

As I said before Dawn is a nut case that has nothing to do.  But stalk my family, and wish that I fail.

Rebuttal of Reginal Wood's statements

AUTHOR: Dawn G - ()

The problem with your stories Reginald is that these so called investements were never even paid back by you so I have made nothing and lost all the money I loaned except for the first $5,000 loan which you paid back by having the Millers pay me the rest of a loan you made to them. I have lost $14,000 to your con game and it was a business loan not an investment since even in your promissory note it is not indicated anywhere as an investment and the amount you were to pay back to me on each of those loans was decided and offered by you and I agreed to those arrangements. You are still trying to weave your little stories. Anyone can look at your so called successful lawn business and see it is inactive (evergreen lawn solutions) and has been for over a year. You are trying to start a new business and I suspect it will be used as another method to con people out of their money. I did not get any free artificial grass from you and you offered a price for me to pay and I paid it in full and have the check to prove it. Any discount was because you wanted to post my house on your site and put a sign in my yard advertising your business. Which anyone dealing with a business realizes that many businesses offer significant discounts to clients in order to provide free advertising and referrals for their business. You still have my house on your old business's site and I had your sign up until about a year ago when I realized what a snake you really are and also realized I had the sign still up. I suspect all your money is money you conned from other people and they will come forward as some already have. I would love to know the person who posted all those links about you on my report and see if they were interested in coming forward with the con game you played on them.

As for my late husband and the money he left to us you don't need to know what is spent or not but I have investments in a legitimate company called Ameriprise and have that set up for my son's education and my retirement. I also gave money to my real family and friends as a one time gift to help them in their difficult time periods. I used my money to help others and to help my family for our futures and you on the other hand took money and never planned to pay it back (I suspect) and are a thief and liar. Keep spinning your stories. I have plenty of friends and family to support me while you most likely have no one except for your wife. Be advised that you keep stating slanderous things this only builds my case Reginald. You want to try and discredit me but you are only burying yourself because I have people who will come forward on my behalf to discredit each and every statement you have made and provide proof to such.

As for my gifts to my family it is all legal and meets all requirements of the amounts that can be given as gifts without penalties so keep digging Reginald you are only making more trouble for yourself. If you truly have a lawyer, which I don't believe you do, then any lawyer would advise you to shut your mouth and stop writing things that can prove your guilt and dishonesty. You don't have a successful business just check SunBiz.Org. All your businesses other than the most recent are inactive due to dissolution. Con men get money by conning people and they live their dishonest lives off that money they conned from people. All of your possessions are most likely owned because you conned someone and are now paying for your life style through their money you stole or you default on payments for those items and eventually get them repossessed most likely.

As for where you live now it only is a matter of time before you get evicted due to not paying your rent or mortgage, most likely rent because you most likely don't own your home. Keep coming with the slander and the statements of admission that you owe that money but refuse to pay it due to some convoluted idea that you feel you don't owe it even though some of it is proven in court to be owed by you. He does not pay all his debts so be very cautious. He tricks people by building confidence and he does so by paying back the first one or two loans or debts and then he convinces you to give him more and then does not pay on those thereafter. He does this with enough people then most likely he gets 10-15,000 out of several people so that adds up. That is how con men work. They don't always go for millions because it is easier to scam people who are not millionaires. He wants people to believe it would be a waste of time to con us out of only 15,000 dollars but in reality it all adds up when there are multiple people losing that money to him which is most likely the case. The interesting thing is that he uses excuses such as medical situations with his family as the reason he cannot pay the loans back or some other types of reasons to make you feel sorry for him and give him extra time. I was supposed to have been paid back the smaller loan in December of the year it was made, two months after the loan was made, and the second larger loan in April of the next year. He never paid on that smaller loan and said he never got paid on the job he used the money for but said he would pay everything in April when the larger amount was due. April came and went and I called him in May asking where the money was and he gave me some sad story about having to pay a doctor $40,000 for medical treatments for his daughter and he had to use every bit of the money he made on that April job to pay that doctor. It was entirely coincidental that after several months of saying he would pay on both loans that when they came due in April he once again did not have the money. He said his medical insurance would not cover the cost of the treatments for his daughter, which I know think is highly suspicious since my late husband had to undergo experimental treatments for his melanoma he eventually died of and all of it was paid for by our insurance. Call Moffit and see that many treatments are paid for by insurance and they most likely deal with the cancer Mr. Wood says his daughter has.

I warn anyone dealing with Mr. Reginald Wood or his wife Angela who is a co owner of the Evergreen Lawn Solutions business and is therefore liable for any loans paid to the company, do not pay anything up front to this man or his wife for lawn services or loan them money. Don't believe any of his sad stories because that is how he gets you. I was dealing with my late husband's death, who this slimy little snake never even bothered to be there for when he was dying those last few months of his life, and Reginald knew I had gotten some money. I was interested in not only possibly building on the return of that loan to Mr. Wood, but to assist a family friend with his busines because he said he needed that money for collateral in his bank for when the company looking to hire him would see he had money to provide for the job he was doing for them. If you get any of these same stories from him consider this a warning and a red flag that he is planning to con you. Who is he to determine whether my remarrying is inappropriate?! I and my son deserve to have a happy life and my late husband wanted that for us from the day he and I married until his death bed. My husband died in my arms from melanoma which took a wonderful man and father from us at the age of 38! It take a slimy little man to even try to dredge up something about my husband, his passing, and our dealing with our lives without him. To stoop so low as that you only need to wonder. I did not bother to bring up his sad little story about his daughter because I felt that if it was true it was not my place to bring that up. I would never bring his children into such a negative and dispicable situation as this but obviously Mr. Wood has no problems trying to dishonor the memory of David Blake who was 100 times the man he ever was and did not deserve to die at 38! Keep saying slanderous things for which you have no proof of and obviously are oblivious of the truth or simply don't care and just want to create negative rumors. You are only showing your true colors.

He says he has all these possessions and is successful yet he does not have the money now to pay on the defaulted loan I own in court or on the other loan. He has been found legally responsible for that one loan and refuses to pay even here. He is not an honorable man. I doubt many of the stories he gave me now because only a true liar and thief would continue to dispute the truth and then lower himself to dredge up family issues of others to try and convince people of something. Just think of the kind of person you are dealing with who will stoop that low and go elsewhere for your business, he has no honesty, ethics, or integrity. Once again continue digging your holes Reginald. You are only sounding more and more desperate to convince people to not believe what they can find is proven in court documents, reviews, and government websites, including the Hillsborough County Sheriff's site. You don't want to deal with a man like that believe me.

Use your Common Since

AUTHOR: WTFReally - ()

Use common since... Why would I waste 3 years to con you out of $5-10 thousand dollars when I sell a product for an average of $15-60k per job the things that you are saying don’t add up. I still reside at 625 Mirabay Blvd since 2010 on the main street of the most exclusive community in Eastbay. Yes my wife drives a Mercedes and we take regular family trips and cruises.  If you think that I got all that from conning you of $10k you’re Crazy. It’s called hard work and good customer service.  I haven’t herd either of them say anything negative about the product that I sell. Just that Susan is trying to get something for nothing. And Dawn is crying over an investment that we both lost on because the client filed bankruptcy 3 years ago. Don’t let their shenanigans stop you from hiring the best artificial grass in the area to install your residential or commercial lawn Evergreen Lawn Solutions. FYI: feel free look at any of the court files they are dismissed as paid or settled except Dawn Blake and you will have to wait until I drop dead first... So stop wasting my time.

As you see Dawn Blake and her friend Susan Miller are people that are fine as long as they are getting what they want. As they both admit my company and I have done something to make them money. They have both received over $10-$15K in free artificial grass. As Susan Miller Says “he was a nice guy he will go out of his way for you" but when I charge the fee for my services now he’s a con man.

  My advice to Susan is to leave Dawn Blake/Grabowski alone before you do something that will hurt your business. You told me she was crazy when she had your loan now your buddies?  She has nothing to lose. After all her and her new husband are living off her late husband’s money, seems suspect that she married this guy soon after David passed away.  And what’s really foul she paid for the wedding with the insurance money from his death. So she must not be very concerned about her son’s education. Her and her new hubby blew through all of David’s money now she is reaching.    

As Dawn has stated again Dawn has been investing with me for years as she admitted that I set up the loan for Susan Miller and The Village early learning center (Tudor Time).  Dawn has admitted that she has done previous investments with me and in the next breath she denies it. Make up your mind.

It’s funny that for years as long as Dawn was getting something from me thousands of dollars in investment revenue, I was her friend good enough to pick your kid from school while my friend was on his death bed. I was good enough to set her up with investment deals with customers that needed a payment plan.  You have admitted that these things are true. When we don’t make money on a deal now I’m a con man.  Who’s conning who?

Sounds like they both have been hanging out with Donald Sterling (owner of the Clippers) they have a slave mentality (do for me or ill f#&@ you over) as long as I’m making you money I’m a good boy…sorry I Don’t Think So!

Continued rebuttals to Reginald Wood's Statement

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

Feel free to have that lawyer contact me and we can go to court. Mr. Wood knows he is the one to draft that promissory note and if it was unlawful to get the amount of money extra then the court would not have found in judgement of the smaller loan. It was a court in Tampa who found in my favor and I don't need to continue this discussion. I never denied I was Dawn Blake and Mr. Wood knows that my late husband, David Blake never had any business relationship with him. The only business transactions we ever had were after his passing when Mr. Wood realized I had money that he could con from me and pretend to be a family friend of ours. He has no documents to provide with any signatures to prove any of his claims of my loaning him any more than $14,000 in total, with one loan being $11,000 and the other being $3,000. I already have my lawn and anyone who would like to see it and know that his claims I am trying to extort him to install a lawn for me feel free to do so, my address is 9609 Laurel Ledge Drive, Riverview in Florida. Mr. Wood also has an image of my home on his site and has had it on his site for the last few years since he installed the lawn. Check out his old site for the business that is now no longer active per SunBiz.org. His site is greenfloridalawns.com and my home is depicted in the top middle image. Any price I paid for him installing my lawn was agreed upon and fully legal and I do not expect any further money to be owed or paid on either side for that installation.

I have no need to extort him for any services and he knows this. You can see on the promissory note the larger loan, for which cannot be taken to small claims. I am not sure how to go about getting him to court for that without more expense on my part. The judgement on the small loan is noted in the default judgement that I also provide as an image to anyone who cares. Most of the claims Mr. Wood has made are all false and can be disproven with a simple call to a lawyer, view on Sunbiz.org, or the Hillsborough County court records. NO Court is going to allow for him to pay on a loan that is not legal so he is the liar. As per the default judgement he is still accruing interest on that unpaid loan. The amount I loaned him was $3,000 and he offered in the promissary note to pay an extra $500 when he paid the loan back two months later. It does not indicate the extra money is interest or a bonus but simply states that I loaned him the $3000 and he would repay $3500 when the loan came due. Honestly, it cannot even be counted as interest since interest was not charge per month it was simply stated that the date of the loan being paid a certain amount that he offered to pay me extra, mind you, would be paid at that date. He is only making things even more difficult for himself by making false claims that can be disproven and by admitting to be loaned certain money on a public forum.

I have already filed an IRS statement indicating the money that was loaned to MR. Reginald Wood and at some point the IRS will be quite interested if he never claimed that money as income to his business. His credit is worthless and his character is already evident when he continues to make statement that can be disproven. He is only digging a larger hole for himself each time he makes these statements so I hope he continues to do so. I claimed my losses to his business to the IRS and am fully legal on my end as far as any money I have received or lost on my income which Mr. Reginal Wood I doubt can say that for himself. I doubt a man who steals from friends would have any problem lying to the law and to the government like the IRS. Keep up the claims Mr. Wood as I will direct the IRS and any other legal or government entity to view these statements and you had better hope you have the proof to save yourself. Better make sure you claimed all that income you are claiming you got on this forum to the IRS. You don't have the proof for any of your claims while I have all the proof and the court system on my side as well as two other individuals who MR. Wood borrowed money from.

I can only beg anyone who reads this do is do not loan this man any money. That is my only desire in posting this information at this time. If anyone else has been ripped off by this man then please post your story as well. Maybe we can all keep him busy digging more holes for himself. He likes to tell stories and lies while also posting just enough information to hang himself.

Loan Shark

AUTHOR: WTFReally - ()

Dawn Blake is the person that I was talking about in my post. She is denying it because she know thats the many loans that she made in the past were in violation of the Florida lending laws. She has proven it with her previous post stating that she loaned $10,000 and was looking for a 30% return. This is why she only filed a $3,500 claim in court and she won because I was too busy working and did not have time to deal with it.

I was recently contacted by a lawyer that read this report. He informed me that the loans that Dawn claims that she made are illegal. In Florida, the maximum lawful rate of interest is 18 percent per annum simple interest for loans of $500,000 or less and 25 percent per annum for loans in excess of $500,000 (Florida Statutes Sections 687.03 and 687.071).

Now she is trying to extort money from my business by making this report. In addition she has used her leverage and my friendship with her late husband to force my company to install a $24,000 artificial grass lawn for $11,000.00. I will be happy to see her in court and let a judge give me some of my interest back in addition charge her with being a loan shark.  And she is really bold to post a document that shows that she is charging 30%

Addendum to previous rebuttal against Mr. Wood's statements

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I am including a copy of the Promissory note for both loans and for those who are interested small claims has already held him in default and responsible for the smaller business loan. It was actually a business loan not an investment as per the promissary note and also keep in mind that Mr. Reginald Wood drafted this Promissary note himself and signed it so that fact that there are not statement that money would only be recovered if the job the money he borrowed did get payment. His statement is false once again regarding that as you will see on the Promissary Notes I have provided images of. Go to the Hillsborough County Tampa Court site to see the claims he has had filed against him and the ones he has defaulted on and still owe on. There is a statement from someone that shows you a direct link to all of these claims and legal statements I am mentioning so feel free to puruse them. I was not the one to attach those links but it is from another individual he conned. Also evaluate Yelp as there are statement from two other individuals who I have had contact with due to them contacting me. These are not good reviews and you will not find any good reviews on MR. Wood or any of his businesses for that matter. The meer fact that he is stating he is not going to pay any loans to me because he does not owe them is proof to any court or other legal entity that he has illegally broken the default judgement against him filed at the court currently. I will provide a copy of that judgement in an addendum after this.

Rebuttal to Mr. Wood's accusations

AUTHOR: Dawn B - ()

I am not sure what planet Mr. Reginald Wood is on but the individual he is stating he did business with the last name of Blake is not the same person as myself. My husband and I never did any business with Mr. Reginald Wood prior to my husband's passing. We did not have the finances to even support putting into one of Mr. Wood's businesses at that time since I was attending school and working part time as a veterinary technician and my husband was an LPN. We never paid him anywhere near the 80-90K he says he got from either myself or my husband. My first time giving Mr. Wood any money prior to the investment I provided him was when I had him put in artificial grass at my home. The home he has depicted is not mine and he did and may still have my home on his old business site though. I did not pay him any more than $10,000 at that time and that was only after I had received money from my husband's life insurance in 2009(he had passed about 6 months prior to my doing this job). It was after that time that Mr. Wood I think though he could work his con on me because he realized I had money and that I was wanting to helping my friends and family as well. I did loan Mr. Wood about $2,000 at first, which he paid back by setting up a payment plan through one of his artificial lawn jobs. That was more of a personal loan I made to him and since it was paid back I was even more inclined to help him (a friend at that time) with his business and possibly even make a little more money that could be invested in my son's education and my retirement fund. I already outlined the two actual business loans that were made to Mr. Wood and you can see the small claims action, which I won, for the smaller loan so the only one lying here is Mr.Wood. Please anyone considering extending credit to this man or his family which includes Mrs. Angela Wood do so at the very real risk that you will never get paid. Don't loan him or his family any money because Mr. Wood is a con man and uses tactics even on his own friends to take them for their money. Feel free to look up my information and give me a call and I can provide proof of his and my family being friends with pictures and the courthouse documents do not lie so realize any rebuttals he make are just made up nonsense when you can see proof of his and his wife's regular evictions and the small claims actions against him. He does not have any proof on his side to reflect his rebuttal claims. I have promissary notes for both of the loans he never paid back and that is why the court found in my favor on the small loan. I have yet to figure out what to do with the larger loan he still owes on since I do not want to waste my son's or my money for our future on this con man. I do believe in Karma and I have heard from several other people who have since come to me about their lost investments to Mr. Wood and that he has conned them as well. It is only after confirming that I am not the only one to be conned by him that I put this report up in hope of stopping him from conning anyone else. He will do anything he can to steal from people he is very convincing and it is only after you see all the proof against him that you can appreciate just how much of a con man he is.

Unrealistic Investor

AUTHOR: WTFReally - ()

I wasnt going to waste my time responding to this rediculous post. This women Dawn Blake/Grabowski has a unrealistic view of how investing works. However she left somethings out.

1. As she stated her late husband and I were business associates prior to  the transaction that she mentioned the Blakes made several thousands of dollars investing in my projects to the tune of 80-90K

2. As she mentioned she was receiving a 10-30% return on thier investments in 3-6 months with Evergreen Lawn Solutions Projects. Standard investments are 1-3% return annually.

3. As she mentioned the project that she invested in was compleated at a cost of $62,530.00 minus her $11K left me to invest $52,000.00 after the job was done I was unable to collect on the invoice because the owner of the property filed bankrupcy. As a result we both lost money and don't expect to recover. The so called P-note was with the understanding that we got paid.

4. As a result of the over 50k loss I was unable to cover many personal expences. That resuletd many financial issues.

5. In the past 3 years since the loss. I have continued to run my business and provide good customer service and qulity installs bringing Evergreen Lawn Solutions to the top of the Artificial Grass industry in Florida. And we have since started to pay pays debts. However Dawn will not be one of them. because I dont owe her. 

6. As a result of bringing my business back to a profitable status I am able to reward my family with trips,cruises and new cars. If Dawn would stop Facebook Stalking and move on with her life she won't be subject to a slander lawsuit.
