KEVIN MCDERMOTT WARNING!

PROFESSIONAL SCAMMER/FRAUDSTER/CHEAT

DEDICATION

This site is dedicated to all the good, honest, and hard-working people cheated and scammed by Kevin McDermott of Langley (Greater Vancouver), British Columbia, Canada. Any resemblance to other people named Kevin McDermott, living or dead, is purely coincidental and is unintentional. The following summarized information regarding Kevin McDermott and his scamming activities was gathered and compiled by, and from, several of his victims.

WHO IS KEVIN MCDERMOTT?

Kevin McDermott has cheated and defrauded innocent people of tens of thousands of dollars, and probably more. His modus operandi is to gain your trust and ask you for advance payments for whatever scheme he is pulling, and then he doesnt hold up his end of the bargain and takes off with your money. The RCMP doesnt regard his actions as criminal because he hasnt actually stolen money by force from his victims. [continued below]....
..... They consider it a contract dispute so the only recourse is to try and get your money back by going through the court system. Kevin knows this, and he moves residences every few months so it is difficult to serve him with court papers, although some people have been successful. Kevin McDermott deserves to be in jail for his actions. The purpose of this site is to continue to shine light on Kevins fraud activities so other people can be warned about him.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a group of his victims who have been in contact with each other to share stories and information, and who have created this website composed of our collective knowledge to ensure that the word continues to get out about Kevin McDermott, and will not be removed until he pays back what he owes to every one of his victims.

KEVIN MCDERMOTTS SCAMS

RENTAL SCAM Plain and simple. Kevin doesnt pay his rent and then moves every few months.

CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTOR SCAM Kevin asks for up-front payments before starting work, or payments for materials/equipment that never shows up and the progress slows down. Eventually the work stops completely, leaving the client with uncompleted work and the advance payments are never returned.

CONTRACTOR HIRING SCAM Plain and simple. Kevin hires sub-trades for his construction work and does not pay them in full, or at all.

CAR IMPORTING SCAM Kevin claims to be able to import cars at a discount price and then sell them at a profit. He gathers advance payments from you, acting as a partner, and then the vehicles never show up. He then keeps any payments made to him.

PAYMENT SCAM In lieu of payment that clients/partners may owe him, Kevin has accepted large ticket items such as boats or trucks. Kevin then doesnt fulfill his end of the contract and keeps the items.

VEHICLE SELLING SCAM Plain and simple. Kevin advertises vehicles for sale, takes the payment and then doesnt deliver the vehicle.

Kevin often uses Craigslist to get his victims.

Here is a copy of a Craigslist posting warning others about Kevin:

SHE'S A LIAR ... ASK HER How she spent your money!

AUTHOR: Nosey Neighbour - ()

Robin Mcdermott is also a liar.   Robin I would love for you to explain what you actually thought KEVIN was doing to earn the money to pay your rent on the multiple houses you have rented and ran from in the last couple of years.  How about the vehicles he bought, stole and sold.  How many people have knocked on your door looking for him...hmmm... just a coincidence?

You were present for many of the scams,  you KNEW what he was up to correct?   You were involved when he the trail of thieving began,  on one of your house building / mortgage scams.

Feel free to start by reading this,  and if you want to talk to the victims let me know and I can put you in touch with them.   provincialcourt.bc.ca/judgments.php?link=http://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcpc/  This was just the start of our papertrail...  the next chapter begins!

How about the F150 you facilitated the transfering of paperwork for?  Had a nice laugh and wave as you drove away from the victims from what I heard.

Just remember Robin,  knowing about Kevins crimes and spending the proceeds is the same thing... plus we all know that KEVIN is not smart enough to pull it off alone...   So....  You may be hurting and stupid to have married Kevin in the first place,  but your obviously not completely stupid. I mean your smart enough to have become a teachers aid,  (err....but not quite a teacher ROFL).  Should have used some of your stolen funds to pay for the full program!

UNFORTUNATELY... things will only get worse, not better for the Mcdermotts as the court cases pile up on you,  I understand that you were just named in a civil suit as well..so stay tuned for some paperwork.

Kevin has warrants for his arrest.  Perhaps if you facilitate his arrest then people will leave you alone????

Food for thought.

Further details regarding last post

AUTHOR: Kevinsucks - ()

 We are the OPs, and will not take credit for this info, however it came from a reliable source.

  • He no longer works at the Hotel, fired for ripping off his Boss using the import vehicle deposit scam that we know he loves to use.  This work was done under the name EVAN MCARTHY.   He worked at the hotel for 4 months,  primarily trading a free room for some work.  This eventually led to him gaining the confidence of the victim who he then took advantage off.  He also ripped off an employee there for $9000 with the "deposit for a vehicle scam". 
  • He lives in a rental unit now, not with his wife.
  • Kevin has ripped of a man from Kelowna for a boat.  This man is proceeding with legal action.

If everyone pulls together we can put this scammer away for good.  Kevin now has the light shining on him more than ever before, and it's not going away.  He has harmed too many people.

Recent Update KEVIN in COURT

AUTHOR: Nosey Neighbour - ()

UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 30

Kevin was in court today according to one of his victims.  They are trying to recover some money.


Kevin claimed to no longer be working at Quality inn - This is a confirmed Lie,  he was seen there within last 24 hours

Kevin claims vehicle (Orange avalanche) is not his:  Probably true and in someone elses name

Kevin Appears to be suffering badly according to reports,  perhaps he is now a drug addict (or always was?) or perhaps just the GUILT of stealing from people has caught up to him.

KEVIN FOUND - AGAIN!

AUTHOR: Nosey Neighbour - ()

 Kevin has been found AGAIN.  Now working under the ALIAS "EVAN" at the Quality Inn in Langley,  in the Home Depot Parking Lot off 200th and 64th Ave.

He is driving a relatively new CHEVROLET AVALANCHE in that burnt orange colour.

Good luck catching this contractor thief, scab!   Anyone that knows how he manages to work at a legit place under an assumed name REPORT HIM!

Glad he is no longer in my area.  He separated from his wife, but that might be fake as well.

Update to Jan. 27 Info

AUTHOR: Kevinsucks - (Canada)

Apparently Kevin hid out at his dead mother's place because his address was posted in December and people were looking for him.  What a snivelling coward he is.  What's the matter Kevin...can't take the heat?  Someone noted that his wife Robin is just as big a liar as he is and they doubt that she left him.

The phone number posted appears to be valid.  Do a reverse lookup and it comes up as "I McDermott from Langley".

Jan. 27 New Info

AUTHOR: Kevinsucks - (Canada)

Someone emailed us to say that he moved again, his wife left him, and that he's living at his mother's because she died (probably of shame because of Kevin).  His phone number is (604) 510-2196.

We can't confirm this new info so believe it at your own discretion, but we hope it's true that his wife left him.  That may mean that she's smarter than we give her credit for.  I hope his kids hate him too.

Kevin is not telling the truth!!!

AUTHOR: Nosey Neighbour - (Canada)

I am Kevin's Neighbour.  I would bet that the last post (Ex-employee) is fake and done by Kevin to try and mislead people that are looking for their money back.

I saw Kevin three times today.  He has not moved,  he still lives at the address posted.  I have seen 3-4 different people trying to contact him at his residence.  He hides out,  but if you look at his house from the back you can see him sitting there watching TV thinking up his next scam.  Amazing but apparently there are over 10? people looking for him now.

There is a neigbour across the street however that calls the police,  so do not make a scene.

Someone  handed out leaflets to our entire area which made me aware of the scumbag that lives on my street.
If it helps,  his wife works as a partial teacher (probably teaching kids to steal) at Latimer Road Elementary on the border of Langley/Cloverdale.

KEVIN MCDERMOTT - SCAM ARTIST CONTRACTOR BEWARE!!! (Hillcrest / Clayton heights area )

Reply to this post Reply to: fxdhp-3452153938@pers.craigslist.org


BEWARE - KEVIN MCDERMOTT - Contractor FRAUD (Clayton Heights / Hillcrest Area)

BEWARE OF KEVIN MCDERMOTT. - FRAUD SCAM ARTIST CHEATING CONTRACTOR.

He will take your deposit for a job, do some small amounts of work, and then disappear without any materials ever showing up on jobsite. I have 7 other victims willing to back up these statements so If you are considering this contractor or are currently working for or with this contractor beware.

ALL TRADES people beware this contractor as well, he will not pay you which leaves you trying to collect from the poor home owner who already paid Kevin. He goes by several names, ONYX Contracting for example, Dave Hughes and other names.

Not much we can do to this guy because he plays the RCMP against his victims "Claiming that they threatened him" etc etc. The RCMP cannot get involved because it is a "contract" dispute not a theft. I have totalled up $100,000 between 7 victims now.

Check out kevinmcdermott.info for even more details

Guy even rips off his own family

Feel free to reply to this ad if you have more information as well. You have been warned!

car rip off

AUTHOR: Dave - (Canada)

Kevin Mcdermott also goes by emns holdings, he ripped me of for over 40 thousand dollars and also my boss for 5 thousand dollars.  he was supposed to bring in vehicles from the states and also provided false document reports of the vehicles and played mind games.  Once he knew he was cuaght in a lie he called the police and got me charged for threating him and extorting him.  I had to pay additional for a lawyer and he never did show up to court.  He is known to move from house to house and also known to even rip off his own family.  It is unbelievable how this guy can sleep at night knowing what he is doing.  The police are in his favour and he knows that so will take advantage of it.
