After a nasty break up with my boyfriend of six years I guess I was particularly vulnerable at the time.  On 5-17-07 I met Kenneth R. Banks on vacation in St. Pete Florida with my mother and my son. He and I became friends.  We spent the weekend together and then continuedseeing other each beyond that weekend. We were inseparable and he introduced his daughter to me. My son and his daughter and all of us became close over the next couple of months he introduced his family to me including his mother who also resided in St. Petersburg. He got very intimate with me very quickly and he told me his family owned Speedo USA. That he had a trust fund his father left him when he died. He was very flashy with lots of cash and also told me he had a tree removal and a bar business in Buffalo.  He was very aggressive courting me and even proposed to me and gave me a ring. During this time he was taking me and my son many places like Disney World with my family and his daughter. [continued below]....
..... But this was all SMOKE AND MIRRORS.  What Ken was actually doing was using my credit cards without my knowledge. I had a small event business called The Buzz Effect.

These credit cards were my business accounts. When I realized the extent of the charges I demanded the money back. He assured me that  "we were to be married" and it was this was only chump change to him and paying me back was no problem at all. He made three check payments from his account to my cards
one for $2749.15 and one for $6000.00equaling $8749.15 to make good on the money he owed on my AMEX card. He also made a payment of $9000.00 onto my Bank of America card.  I was living with my mom
after the breakup with my boyfriend so my mail and the statements had not caught up to me yet. I went to a funeral with my family Ken Banks came with me. When I returned I found out all the electronic checks had bounced that he paid me. Large payments take 7 to 10 business to process so when these large payments weremade on the cards the credit limits went up. Ken continued to charge behind my back during the two weeks that the payments were in limbo. Plain tickets, phone bills, bar tabs anything and everything was on my cards. The bounced fees were endless the overages, the interest rates sky rocketed.  The payments were in the thousands. When I returned from the funeral from upstate I was to meet Ken in Florida again. He never was to be seen again. He changed his cell phone number and I was stuck with tons more charges he charged after he supposedly paid me back. My business was bankrupted. I had to get a new job and pay down the charges for several years.

I also paid an attorney for three to file a judgment against himwhich is now filed! My life will never be the same I have spent all my childs college funds and Im still fighting to stay afloat!!! By the way the ring he gave me was worth $50.00 I practically died in the jewelers store. The only reason I am writing this is because I have ran into people that Ken has also embezzled. I hope this protects the new women he is about to scam. The grand total on the record is approximately $53,000.00.

LMFAO The proof is in the pudding!

 I only new Ken for 3 months. I never knew him when I was 18 in fact I was married way before I even met this low life. He has no money to extort!!! LMFAO He tells lies and then belives his own lies. Even if I was crazy which I am not... it doesn't excuse anyone from stealing from the amount of money he stole from me. Ladies if you run into this jack a*s he has no money, no license in anything, no degree, and owns NOTHING not even a car! In fact run away from this person as fast as you possibly can and lock your credit cards away. Poor thing thinks someone can sue him without his knowledge...but everyone knows you have the serve the person multiple times before sueing anyone and provide proof in front of a judge by an attourney to get a judgement on someone... which I did!!!! This took three years of my life to get the judgement and tons of money. This person has 10 other judgements on him two of which are from the IRS and one from the state of NEW JERSEY... this is all public knowledge.


AND Now this story is also public knowledge! Moreover now that me and the lawyers are so buddy buddy and they have known me for three years... if Ken Banks  comes anywhere near me I will slap another lawsuit on him for slander!!! My story has proof his story has nothing!!

Crazy ex

AUTHOR: Good luck - ()

I did date Tami l****, who did not have enough money to buy her own meal, between her and her mother Phyllis, the drained my bank account, in which I will post, I have never made a payment on her credit card, she had access to all my personal banking information. I saw that her and her mother booked air fare for her mothers boyfriend off of my orbitz account linked to my credit card. She has had a bad taste in her mouth ever since I broke up with her after I found that she used my cards with out my permission.

Her boyfriend had broken up with her after I met her I found out that he was paying all her bills and kicked her to the curb. If she had a business in which she was operating, then why was she able to travel all over with me and my daughter. She is not right by posting foolish stuff about me. She is trying to extort money from me to pay her and her ex husband Frank laisch mortgage foreclosure off, that she lost years before me, but just so happen that after she was sued, she then filed a civil suit on me while I was living out of state.

How ironic, just get feedback from Tami's ex boyfriends. Same story, different guy. I was lucky to get out of it. I was never engaged to her, nor did I buy her a ring to get married. She wanted a crystal ring at a Disney shop and I bought the crazy girl it. So as to all your lies in trying to get me upset, it won't happen. You sued me without my knowledge and 2 yrs after we dated, get a life and move on. I should have you arrested just for turning the situation around. Oh and by the way, I helped pay for your family members funeral, I have proof.

It was on my bank statement not yours. You paid for 1 week vacation by your choice. I paid for months of penthouses and traveling for you , your son, mother, her boyfriend, his two kids, Connecticut. List goes on. And my father, mother, sister and I, had a swim wear company representing speedo for years. Don't twist the story. Tami, You Need HELP. You can have all your friends post things about me, I really don't care. You were a girl who used men to get what you wanted.i want to know what your credit card balance was when I met you, and what it was when I left you. Show me that.
