ANYONE LOOKING TO BUY REAL ESTATE IN THE FLORIDA KEYS SHOULD BE VERY CAUTIOUS. CRIME HERE AND CRIMINALS ARE VERY BAD.

THE COUNTY SHERIFF BOB PERYAM IS VERY BAD WHEN IT COMES TO PROSECUTING LOCALS BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE BUBBA SYSTEM...

LOCAL BUSINESS PEOPLE NOW PLEADING FOR THE NEW STATE ATTORNEY DENNIS WARD TO TAKE ACTION AGAINT THESE CRIMINALS..

Dear Dennis,

It has been brought to my attention that about a year ago a boat was stolen in Key West which I believe is grand theft and should be brought to trial or at the very least an investigation should be done. In this particular case it seems that neither was done. That it was called a civil case. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that stealing a boat is not a civil matter. It has caused great hardship on the family that owned the boat. It was not just a boat for recreation but a boat that was used commercially to provide an income. The family that is the victim is from Ohio. This is the last thing that we need in the Keys is for justice not to be done. We rely on tourism down here and what we don't want is for these beautiful islands to get a bad reputation that when something happens everyone just looks the other way.

I truly am urging you to conduct an investigation into the matter. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Dear Mr. Ward,
I realize that you have not taken office yet, but I have become painfully aware that an injustice may have taken place approximately 18 month ago.

Mr. Robert Krutko of Columbus, OH, formerly of Cudjoe Key has contacted me via the internet to help him get a formal investigation of the circumstances leading to the theft of his 45' boat, the subsequent sale of same, and the reversal of that sale.

I am a long time resident of the Keys and love them dearly. Certainly this man's claims of inside dealing, and poor law enforcement can be quelled by a proper investigation, which he claims never took place. Please make this case one of your first orders of business for the new year.

Sincerely,
Paula Nardone

Dear Mr. Ward & Mr. Barrett:
I am writing to urge you to re-open the case involving the theft of a 45-foot boat belonging to Robert K.

I'm sure you are familiar with this case because many others have written to you on behalf of Mr. K and his family.

Mr. K is calling on Keys businesses and residents to write to you on his behalf and is posting negative messages about crime in the Keys in as many places as he can on the internet. He is very angry and very persistent

This is a problem from many different fronts. First and foremost, if he is fairly representing his story, he and his family have been mistreated by the law, have suffered great personal and financial loss, and have not been given the opportunity to receive justice due to them. Second, these criminals have not been punished and may be victimizing others, or planning to victimize others as I write. Third, this is certainly a negative public relations message and may affect the decisions of anyone thinking of vacationing, doing business in, or purchasing homes anywhere in the Florida Keys.

As a partner in businesses located in the Keys, I am concerned about Mr. K's negative public relations campaign against Realtors in the Keys, and against the Keys in general, and I respectfully request you to use the powers of your position to do what is necessary to bring this matter to justice.

Thank you.

AND THERE ARE MANY MORE LETTER SENT..

My name is Kevin Mc I own and operate Amelia River Cruises & Charters in Fernandina Beach, Florida. In the fall of 2006 my wife and I drove to Key West to look at a few commercial tour boats that were for sale. We looked at a 45' 49 passenger U.S. Coast Guard Inspected vessel that was chained to the dock at the Ocean Key House Resort. The asking price was $110,000 the broker informed me that there were outstanding dock fees and that is why the vessel had been chained to the dock. I expressed an interest and told the broker that I would make an offer in a week or so.

Two days latter the broker called to inform me that the vessel was to be auction off the very next morning at the Ocean Key House Resort and that the hotel had taken possession of the vessel for the delinquent dock fees and the starting bid would be $61,000.

The next morning I called the Resort and spoke with the manager Mr. Steve Boswell I asked him if in fact the vessel was to be auctioned off that morning his response was yes and then he handed the phone to his attorney Allen Eckstein. I asked Mr. Eckstein if the Resort now owned the vessel and if there were any other outstanding leans on the vessel. Mr. Eckstein told me that the Resort did now own the vessel and that there were no other outstanding leans. I them called the broker to ask if he could attend the auction on my behalf, I authorized him to bid up to $71,000 plus a 10% broker fee for him. At 10:15 that morning I received a call form the broker that the boat was mine for $71,000. I received a bill of sale from attorney Eckstein and took possession of the vessel.

After a month in dry dock and with about $20,000 in repairs my wife and I were sailing our new tour boat from Marathon Key north to Amelia Island Florida. We stopped in Miami that first night and I received a phone call From Mr. Robert Krutko, Robert explained to me that I did not own the vessel and that it had been stolen from him. I then called Attorney Eckstein he assured me that the vessel was in fact mine and the everything had been done lawfully, My next call was to a Maritime Attorney in Miami I explained my situation to him,
his first question to me was did the Resort arrest the vessel and was there a U.S. Marshal at the auction my answer was no. The Attorney then told me that I in fact could not own the vessel and that the transaction in his opinion was not done poperly.

By this time we were on our way to Ft. Lauderdale and I had made arraignments to stop at First Performance Marina for some engine repair. Just as we were pulling in to the marina we were boarded by the U.S.Coast Guard and then the Broward County Sheriffs Department they looked at my bill of sale they both told me that the bill of sale was not worth the paper it was written on. I then made arraignments with the marina to leave the boat there and we returned to north Florida that was the last time I saw the boat and I was out $91,000. I then hired an attorney in Jacksonville and after about a month of haggling the resort did return my purchase price of $71,000 and the broker did return his 10% fee.

I am out at lest $20,000 and the hole ordeal has been a nightmare. I am convinced that the Ocean Key House Resort ,Mr.Steve Boswell, Attorney Allen Eckstein and Mr. John Evens the young man that hot-wired and then removed the vessel from Cudjoe Bay and returned it back to the resort all participated in the Grand theft of this vessel. I am also convinced that had the Monroe County Sheriff's Department the F.W.C and the States Attorney's office in Key West had done there jobs I would not have had to endure this nightmare. Mr. Krutko and I do not have the financial were with all to go after this type of injustice and I am very disappointed in the way this has been handled by those governmental organization that are sworn to up hold the laws in this state.
Sincerely
Kevin Mc

WE HAVE E MAILS FROM STATE OFFICIALS, EVEN MONROE COUNTY DETECTIVE ALONG WITH U.S. COAST GUARD OFFICIALS CONFIRMING GRAND THEFT.

STILL NOT EVEN AN INVESTIGATION ??

THEY HAVE TRIED HARD TO COVER THIS UP BUT WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THESE SERIOUS CRIMINALS ARE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE......

Fools in paradise.

AUTHOR: KeyLow - ()

Most people who come to the keys see palm trees, beaches, beautiful water, and tiki bars. What they fail to realize is the fl keys is no different from any other place in the world. Crime is a reality and if you are a fool coming to a different location on earth will not change that about you. Any time you purchase anything like a boat, car, or home the person selling it should have a title or deed with their name on it. A shady auction with nothing but a bill of sale should have been a red flag and who buys a boat without a title or coast guard documentation paperwork? I will tell you who A FOOL!

A fool and his money will soon part.

FLORIDA KEYS REAL ESTATE FLORIDA KEYS REAL ESTATE - Nd Info

AUTHOR: Phelan Patriot - (United States of America)

There have been several people in my community in California who have been trying to get information if one of our former Mayors and owner of a Realty and Engineering company was involved with the fraud of selling the 45' boat in Florida, but we haven't been able to solidify the connection yet. So far, it is just a rumor.

We've just been pulling information off of some blogging sites where former employees are making remarks in connection to such a case in Florida. This person is known to have changed his name and we are trying to go back and see how many name changes he has applied for so we can see if he is listed in any court documents.

Any help would be appreciated as he is implanting himself in political positions and we'd like to confirm the rumor.

Remember this Robert?

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Please refer to Report Report #0238480 which can be found here:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/238/RipOff0238480.htm

""During this lawsuit i will be able to prove john evans of hydro thunder performance watersports not only lied to several individuals including state police officer but was involned in trying to cover it up. when court transcripts are available i will then prove my facts.""

The case was concluded MONTHS ago; YOU LOST. The court documents have been available for months so why haven't you used these documents to prove your allegations as you stated you would above?

Why don't you explain why the attorney for RSA Inc. (Reef Snorkeling Adventures Inc., Laura Krutko, President) withdrew from the case?

Why don't you explain why the judge WARNED you about your "highly suspicious" evidentiary documents when you moved for dismissal and release of the vessel? You know, your ridiculous claim that a "newly discovered" document that proved RSA Inc was dissolved on Aug 30 2005, but wasn't FILED until Oct 2007 on the same day you filed your motion to dismiss? The reality is the document states a dissolution approval date and the form is signed (but not dated) by Laura Krutko, but the EFFECTIVE DATE was left blank. Go ahead. Take all the time you need to explain this one.

When are you going to make these court documents available to Mr. McCarthy so he can read for himself what really transpired during the lawsuit against you? Don't' forget to include the evidentiary documents filed by the plaintiff that include the investigative reports and statements from the folks who were on the scene when the vessel was adrift.

When are you going to provide Mr. McCarthy a copy of the judge's order that denied your motion to dismiss so that he can read for himself what you attempted to do and the judge's STATEMENTS as to WHY your evidentiary documents were "HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS?" and he denied your motion?

Perhaps if Mr. McCarthy would READ these documents, he might develop a more accurate opinion of the type of people he's dealing with (you and your wife) and re-assess his relationship with you.

When are you going to update the Secretary of the Gulf Coast Mariners Association with the FACTS of your case (as filed with the court), including the WARNING to you that the Judge stated, so he can write a follow-up article to the one he printed in their newsletter in March 2007?

When are you going to retract the lie you posted about me on RipOff Report?

Where's your retraction Robert?

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

""OBVIOUSLY THE POSTER ABVE IS VERY WORRIED, HES POSTING EVERYWHERE ON ALL MY POSTS WHISH SHOWS HOW MUCH KEY WEST TRASH ARE TRYING TO COVER THIS UP...""

I'm rebutting your current wave of rants to remind you and everyone who reads your nonsense that YOU ARE A PROVEN LIAR! Anyone who reads the 2 ripoff reports I listed can see what a liar you are.

I'm not worried at all you tool. I've never been to the Keys and I don't know anyone there. I'm in Buffalo, NY and I'm self-employed with 2 small businesses. UNLIKE YOU and your repeated failures, my businesses are doing just fine.

Now Robert, tell us about this wonderful realtor you recommend in Florida. Is this the same realtor who set you up in a Florida house that the lender FORECLOSED on? Hmmmm? Do you really think anyone cares what a FAILED property buyer thinks about any realtor?

I'm still waiting for you to retract the lie you posted about me.

Memory Refresher for Krutko.

I guess Robert 'The Liar' Krutko needs his memory refreshed. Here's a reminder of when he LIED and posted on RipOff Report that I worked for United Yachts:

I'm convinced.
You have now convinced me that you're a liar.

I've been self-employed since I stopped working for a major autoparts supplier. I don't know you or Schmidt, but from the blatherings I've read here from BOTH of you, I wouldn't wish to business with either of you.

I initially responded to one of your post last year. I was curious as to how a boat could be arrested.

Here's the rebuttal I posted last July to your report:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/257/RipOff0257482.htm - 243740''

UNQUOTE

As anyone can see Robert, you're a proven liar.

Anyone who would like to learn what this knucklehead, Robert from Ohio, has been doing, just read these 2 ripoff reports and decide for yourself:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/257/RipOff0257482.htm
http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/312/RipOff0312362.htm

If you'd like to learn about his losing civil suits and foreclosures, just check with the Martin and Monroe County (Florida) Clerk of the Court websites and search for KRUTKO to learn about his failures.

More information about this businessman can be found at the Ohio Secretary of State website. Again, just search for KRUTKO and learn about Special K Investments, Mr. Hotdog, and Mr. Powerwash.

Now Robert, do let me know when you're going to RETRACT the lie you posted about me.

Still haven't been able to find anyone to extort money from eh? Hahaha

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

So why haven't you sued them

Why haven't you sued them and the alleged government officials that you continue to slander if you are right?

Why have you stopped slandering the government officials that deemed everything was done correctly? Threatened with a suit there too?

And why do you keep alleging that others agree with you when there is no one that does? Why do you talk to yourself through different screen names? When are you finally going to accept the summons and appear in court?

Please provide proof of your fraudulent allegations that I have different screennames (unlike your dumbass that does and signs 'robert' to them you loser) and that I post on sites all over the internet.

Much like your boyfriend proven fraud charles, you can't and is just one of your many, many lies on this site. You really are not as important in the scheme of life as you seem to think. That's why your bogus claims are unfounded and no one takes your lies seriously. I have no need to follow you over the internet....I debunk your claims right here.

Why does the price of the canoe in question keep changing? That's another lie you've been throwing around for awhile.

Why haven't you ever answered the summons that you were served? It was the perfect time to prove your point and provide all your 'evidence'.
