Javier Ortiz of Casabella has blatantly lied, stolen millions, and ripped me, and many people off, and bragged that there is nothing I, or anyone can do about it! He has threatened me personally if I said anything to anybody. But enough is enough and I am standing up for what is right and have a lawyer filing civil and assisting in bring criminal charges
I am writing this letter because Javier laughs at this saying “you think you’re the only one I took money from! Get in line! You will never see a penny! Go ahead and sue! No one will ever get a dime!” So I realized I needed to write a letter. So when other victims who have given Casabella and Javier money realize they also have been duped, lied to and cheated by Javier stealing their money, they too will realize they need to take legal action! What Javier is doing is not right!
My name is Michael Bixby, Vice President of Caribbean Coves Development (CCDL) a building, construction and development company in the Caribbean. I am in charge of wiring monies and dispersing funds to vendors for building and supplies. We hired a supplier who goes by the name Javier Ortiz (legal name is Francisco Ortiz Gonzales) the owner of the company Casabella located at 301 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton, Florida.
I personally wired over One Million Dollars ($1,000,000 US) to Casabella and Javier. He easily took the money and of course “promised” delivery of the supplies and materials. We were always promised that our supplies were on route in shipping containers but when the containers arrived they were always very empty lacking what we ordered. When confronted he would lie again and again, putting us off, saying there had been a shipping problem, or he would look into it, or it was on the way. This dance continued for months, when containers did arrive, they were mostly empty, and he would act outraged and innocent. The last straw, and most obvious theft, was our very important, crucial for our business, Spain container. We were promised that our container from Spain, which was fully paid for, was in the water first week of April and would arrive beginning on May 2013! This was crucial for our showcase model. Without it we only had artist renderings and no finished Estate model. Without it sales would be very bad, and cause our company a lot of problems! We had buyers booked and flying down end of May to buy based on our finished product. We sat there waiting for supplies to arrive, called Javier constantly, and he said “all is fine! It left Spain and is in route takes 28 days so middle of May at the latest!” Our Buyers arrived in their Chartered Jet, only to see a concrete shell!, and cancelled their trip, and cancelled their purchases. They all ended up cancelling their purchases costing our company millions! We called the company in Spain trying to get to the bottom of the problem, (Javier told us it was their fault it hadn’t shipped and supplied us the number) they would not lie for Javier. They informed us that it had not been paid for, and our order had been sitting in port since April. They asked us when WE were going to pay for it. We told them the money had been wired to Javier months before, and found out they had never received ANY of it. That’s when we realized the full extent of how badly we had been lied to and cheated by Javier. I went in to Casabella to confront Javier and he tried to placate me with apologies saying he had personal problems and had to use the money we had wired him. He promised he would replace it and fix everything, just to get me to go away. Nothing was ever repaid or replaced. I found out later he was bragging about how we would never see a dime out of him. He brags that he has done this to many people in Boca in the past twelve months, including a business associate of ours a really nice 93 year old man named Harold Buirkle. Even though 93, Harold is also filing charges along with me. Harold told me “We have to do what is right, and stop Javier from beating people out of their hard earned monies!” Javier blatantly boasts how “no one will ever see their money again” “get in line”, “good luck collecting!” Javier through his company Casabella rips people off by taking money for work that will not be done and supplies that will never be shipped and supplied. Because of this we are being forced to file lawsuits, both criminal and civil, because he refuses to do what is right and remedy his blatant embezzlement and fraud.
Javier’s really stopped even trying, to do good business at all ever since June 2012 when he left his wife for his new, in his words “younger and prettier model” his new“Fake Wife” (He did not marry his fake wife! He “hired some Guy” as Javier likes to say “some ACTOR to PRETEND to be a minister to fake out her parents!” He is working them for money too!) . He boasts to anyone who will listen how he has a new “Fake Wife” and still has all his girlfriends on the side. (Tie-in. You lie and cheat in your personal life you will lie and cheat in your business life!)
Yes it is true! To appease her conservative parents who flew down for the wedding, they had a fake marriage ceremony. (As he was still legally married to the First wife when he knocked up the new Fake Wife) He hired an actor to marry them and since then has been bragging about fleecing her parents for money. He also brags about how he has gotten his fake wife’s brother on his side by taking him to a strip club for his birthday and paying to get him laid in the back room!
I wish I had known more about Javier before ever losing a dollar to him. His earlier criminal involvements before I met him I am just finding out are Huge! Javier and his partner Lou Gallo ripped people off for Millions! They ran a business where Lou Gallo raised over $20Million Dollars from unknowing investors online through his unregulated phone room. Then Lou and Javier would move the money offshore and then pretend to load a boat with iron ore in their jointly run Mexican operation, which was Javier’s business. They decided the way to really make money was to raise over 20 million then NEVER SHIP the commodity that the investors paid for! (Sound familiar. Take the money, Keep all the money! Don’t ship, just rip off the investor/buyer of all their money while smiling at them!)
This is from the former commodities phone room scam commoditiesonline.com. His former partner Lou Gallo is currently incarcerated, being caught and is being investigated by the SEC and by the FBI for fraud. Javier brags that Lou still has not turned over the remaining 10 MILLION DOLLARS that they stole together from investors. They raised money online and never even bought the commodities. Javier says “the FBI is too stupid to get me or the money” and as soon as Lou Gallo is released he will be fleeing with his share of the Millions.
I thought I had lost money! I am writing this because it sounds like I am just the tip of the Ice Burg! Anyone who is in the same position as I am please don’t wait for Javier’s lies of you being repaid. Defend yourself. The only reason Javier is not behind bars is that the FBI hasn’t realized the extent that Javier and Lou Gallo both did this SEC and FBI crime! Javier brags, that “The FBI is not smart enough to realize I was involved. And if they ever did come after me, I would just give them my get out of jail free card! I would give up where the money is! in exchange for a free pass…”
I had my company almost ruined. And I like I said am just the tip of the Ice Burg! I feel for the other victims of Javier Ortiz and Lou Gallo.
