Lonnie Wilcox sells items out of his apartment in Sacramento off craigslist.  I purchased a few items from him with no problem....then after he gained my trust he SCAMMED ME.  Told me his mother was dying of cancer and owned an antique shop for 30 years and he was executer of estate and all merchandise was housed in a storage unit in San Jose.  Asked me if I would sell the contents for him for a 50/50 profit.  EMailed me detailed list of items in unit worth over 3 million dollars.  I am power seller on ebay and he had me list several thousand dollars worth of merchandise and we would meet the following week so I could take posession of items sold and most the contents of storage unit to continue selling.  He even signed a legal document giving me permission to sell these items etc..  I sold several thousand dollars of collectibles.  My husband made the 2 hour drive with Lonnies half of the money.  Lonnie took the money and then came up with a "story" that he is not executor that his brother is (there is no other brother other than his twin Donnie).  My husband stayed with Lonnie and his twin all day waiting to go to San Jose to get the merchandise.  It was one story after another.  In the end...we got no merchandise, Lonnie stole about 1500 cash from us and we had to pay back all our buyers on ebay.  He has promised hundreds of times to pay us back but nothing.  Come to find out this man has a huge criminal history or scams.  If you google his name it will come up as convicted felon for scams. 

BEWARE!  He now has a new "company" signmemobile.com where he takes credit card payments over the phone to "help" musicians launch their career.  I am sure it is another scam.  We have taken legal action against him and if anyone wants to be included just email me at (((REDACTED))) @att.net  He goes by many names.  Lon Wilcox, Donnie Wilcox, Lon Wilcox, Lonnie E Wilcox.  BEWARE OF THIS MAN.  HE HAS NO DYING MOTHER.  THERE IS NO ANTIQUE STORE, HIS MOTHER WORKED AT A GROCERY STORE.  HE HAS NO HALF SIBLING.  HE HAS A STORY FOR EVERYTHING.  DO NOT BUY INTO ANY OF IT.  YOU WILL BE ONE OF US...SCAMMED!

Attorney of Representation

AUTHOR: Attorney Respresents - ()

Mr Wilcox was contacted by the woman formetioned to purchase valuble antiques that were being sold on ebay. She stated she and her family were in a tornado back east and had lost all their possessions. She stated that they were trying to replace items lost in the tornado for their little daughter. Mr Wilcox took sympathy and invited her and her husband to an apartment which was rented for the storage of the antiques so they may do business with the public without revealing a warehouse that contained many valuble antiques. After many incounters with them items given and sold, the wife accidently stated they were in a flood while on the phone with Mr Wilcox. Mr Wilcox realized that she was in fact lying about their situation and researched the couple. He found they were living quite well in a beautiful home furnished nicely and she had lied about their situattion just to take advantage. The wife also mentioned her husband used to be in asian gangs. The wife also stated in an incident that her daughter was injured at her home and CPS was involved. Mr Wilcox tried to end the relationship but the wife refused to do so. She had learned that Mr Wilcox had a wharehouse with many other antiques and persisted to aqquire the address. Mr Wilcox ended all communication and moved the antiques from the apartment to the warehouse location and severed ties with them. This posting was her recourse. Mr Wilcox could have filed harrasment charges and posted online but chose not to. As for Mr John Browkaw, also known as a realestate fraud investor scammed investors out of 300k in an investmnet scheme in Sacramento California. He was convicted in sacrmento county, public records. It is a shame what greed does to individuals and the internet gives the public the opportunity to slander people and their name.

End.

Mr Wilcox has no further response, the public can research the couple involved as well as John Browkaw. Further Harrasment will be answered with charges.

 

Thank you.

Donnie Wilcox Has Lied Once Again

AUTHOR: anon - (United States of America)

In response to the latest post by Donnie Wilcox of Sacramento, CA.  He has started to make good on his threat to post horrible things about me.  He threatened me via text message that he was a web developer and would put my name all over the world wide web making false allegations if I did not remove my rip off report of his scam.  I told him I would no such thing.  People have an absolute right to know what he and his twin brother Lonnie Wilcox did to my family.  If you read above he states I am crazy, harrassing him and stalking.  If you believe that contacting someone who flat out lied, cheated, scammed and stole your money is stalking then I guess I am guilty.  He and his brother Lonnie are both mentioned on this site many times, not by just me but by countless others they have scammed.  I can see someone who reads my post not believing the scam if it was just a single person making a claim but how many people must file a report like this....to be all wrong.  Are we all lying Lonnie and Donnie?  You both are life long scam artists who profit from others.  I will give you this....you are fantastic at what you do.  I have always prided myself on being able to "read" people but you both flew right over my bull**** radar with flying colors.  As you did with others too...very powerful businessmen were scammed also.  You have no shame, as you both take from a couple hundred to hundreds of thousands of dollars...you are able to size up the person and read them well and fine tune your scams to get as much as you can.  Google their names and add scam at the end...you will find so much information about scams they have pulled over and so many people.  You will also find the State of California docket where they were convicted of felony charges for hundreds of thousands of dollars they scammed in a fake business venture.  They are dangerous with their words, Donnie has no problem threatening you but is so stupid to put it in text form.  As for them filing complaints against me...bogus.  These 2 idiots wouldn't be able to get an attorney if their lives depended on it.  The people they have scammed were atleast smart enough to keep all records of the scam including emails, phone records, messages and texts.  No attorney will help them and they would probably scam one if they did find one or they would just doctor up a law degree to represent themselves.  I have made contact with many of their VICTIMS and we all have banded together and filed complaints individually and combined with the State of California and the District Attorney's office, along with the police department and sherriff's department and a civil suit has been filed.  Probably won't do any good with the civil suit since these two idiots have no assetts because they are serial scam artists and hide their property well.  But, the Attorney General will be able to put them behind bars which is where they both belong.  They have a new "company" whether it is real or not I strongly suggest anyone in the music industry that comes across signmemoble.com stay away from them.  They are taking credit card payments over the phone promising aspiring musicians that they will help make them big names...they will help alright...help take the money out of your pocket and the shirt off your back.  The Attorney General is already aware of their new "company" and is fully investigating it and it looks like they are not allowed to do this type of venture since they were convicted felons and they are not allowed to sign documents, take credit card payments or start up companies.  Please be very aware of these two brothers.  They use the internet to lure people in:  craigslist especially.  They will tell you they can help you find a mortgage for a small fee...a lady was scammed this way.  They will tell adicts they can help them for a small fee.  They will sell a car online and take the payment and never "ship" the car.  They will say they are music producers and have you invest with them.  The list goes on and on.  They work out of a tiny apartment in Sacramento that is barely furnished, reeks of marijuana and loaded with high end computer equipment...top of the line stuff.  BEWARE OF DONNIE WILCOX.  BEWARE OF LONNIE WILCOX.  GOOGLE THEIR NAMES AND ADD SCAM AND YOU WILL SEE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS INCLUDING THE FELONY CHARGES AND ALL THE ALIASES THEY HAVE USED.  For the record I am not crazy, harrassing or stalking anyone.  I am the VICTIM  of these to thieves.  I am a stay at home mom with a small daughter and I sell items on eBay to help out financially as my husband works 12 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We are a small family who was scammed out of a large sum of money.  Lonnie Wilcox asked me to sell off a warehouse full of merchandise (antiques and collectibles) and asked me to take possession of the items in my care and sell on my eBay account and a 50/50 profit.  He sent me an itemized list of items, values, amount in stock etc.. I thought, fantastic!  This will be a wonderful arragement as I will not have to hunt around California looking in goodwills and antique stores for items to resell.  He asked me to start listing/selling items and we would meet up following so I could give him his half of the money and he would take my husband to the warehouse to pick up the sold items and allow my husband to take possession of all items.  I typed up a legal document stating all terms of agreement and Lonnie Wilcox signed it in the presence of his brother Donnie Wilcox and my husband.  As soon as Lonnie got his half of the money...there was no warehouse of merchandise.  It was a complete scam.  Donnie and Lonnie told lie after lie about why they couldn't get into this fake warehouse, my husband lost a 2 days of work because they had him stay at a hotel in Sacramento to go to warehouse following day...which ofcourse they didn't.  They both bolted from there apartment and sent my husband on 400 mile goose chase.  They had the money and I had customers who bought items that did not exist.  I had to each customer back in full ofcourse, explain the situation, I had eBay fees for each item and paypal fees for each item and we had to use our daughter's vacation money to pay it all back.  We are out a minimum of $5000 and not to mention the loss of income on eBay since we depleted our savings paying everyone back, ruined vacation and no money to go out and purchase items to resell.  They didn't just take a couple thousand...they ruined us financially for months.  We are just started to get above water and this happened end of March of 2012.  BEWARE OF THESE BROTHERS!  IF YOU TRY AND GET YOUR MONEY BACK, DONNIE WILL SLANDER YOU ON THE INTERNET.  Everything I have said it the absolute truth and DONNIE AND LONNIE WILCOX KNOW THIS BUT ARE TO EVIL TO ADMIT IT.  THEY WILL ANSWER FOR THEIR CRIMES, EITHER THROUGH TIME IN JAIL, LAWSUITS OR BURING IN H**L.

These People are opportunists, stalkers, and completely crazy. Everything that is written here is false. A complaint has been filed against them. It's unfortunate that the internet and companies such as this provide a open platform to slander anyone at any time.

DONNIE WILCOX - New info about scam above

AUTHOR: anon - (United States of America)

Lonnie Wilcox's twin brother DONNIE WILCOX has threatened me via text messages that he is a web developer and is going to blast my name all over the internet worldwide with horrible things and will ruin my business forever.  His name is Donnie Wilcox aka Don Wilcox.  He was a party to the scam above.  I tried via text to have Lonnie Wilcox give me my money back or I will proceed with the civil lawsuit.  Lonnie of course does not respond so I thought I would forward the message to his twin brother Donnie Wilcox just to make sure Lonnie gets the text (in case Lonnie changed his cell number).  Donnie replied that he knows about his report I made on here where I mention his name as a name his brother Lonnie uses in scams and told me I had 72 hours to remove it.  I told him no and that everything I said was the truth.  He then threatened to ruin me due to his vast knowledge of web developing.  He also informed me he had taped recordings of my conversations with his brother Lonnie.  Which is illegal to possess if the person being recorded is not made aware of.  I told him this and that it wouldn't matter anyway because I said and did nothing wrong.  I told him I was not scared of him or his brother Lonnie.  BEWARE OF DONNIE WILCOX AND LONNIE WILCOX.  THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE WITH BAD HISTORIES.  JUST LOOK THEIR NAMES UP HERE AND YOU WILL FIND SCAMS THEY HAVE RUN TOGETHER OR LONNIE USING FALSE IDENTIES INCLUDING HIS BROTHERS NAME.  I KNOW FOR A FACT DONNIE WILCOX WAS A PARTY TO THE SCAM RUN ON MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF.  STAY AWAY FROM THEM.  ANY OFFER THEY MAKE. RUN THE OTHER WAY.  THEY ARE A HUGE DANGER TO YOUR POCKETBOOK! LONNIE WILCOX, LON WILCOX, LONNIE E. WILCOX, DONNIE WILCOX, DON WILCOX, DON E. WILCOX.  THEY LIVE IN SACRAMENTO CALIFORNIA AND THE SCAMS OCCUR IN THEIR OWN APARTMENT.  BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE
