PC Gecko St. Paul PC Repair PC Gecko: Owner Charles Schuck III under criminal investigation for theft and fraud - avoid this company! Roseville, Minnesota
*General Comment: iv just ran into this man
Here's how the PC Gecko scam works:
Unwitting customers bring in their computer gear to PC Gecko for servicing, and are required to pay up-front. Charles Schuck III then dodges calls and emails, and hides from the customers. When Schuck has bilked a sufficient number of victims and amassed a nice little pile of stolen money, he closes his shop in the dark of night and moves to a new location, taking the cash and computer equipment in the process. Charles Schuck III then fences the stolen computer gear and other electronics, thereby stealing from the customer twice. Not surprisingly, PC Gecko also stiffs its creditors and landlords, and there are numerous lawsuits currently in process against Charles J. Schuck III and PC Gecko / St. Paul PC Repair / Minneapolis Computer Repair / Wise Guyz IT.
Calls to his phone number 651-644-4640 are never returned, and no responses to messages sent to his email firstname.lastname@example.org. Collection agencies have tried numerous times to reach him at his location at 926 Aurora Ave. St. Paul, Minnesota, but with no results. He has likely moved on to the next bogus location to avoid authorities and litigation.
Even the lowly Better Business Bureau has given PC Gecko an "F" rating, which is quite remarkable, given the BBB's habit of softballing crooked companies. So, if the BBB gives a company an F, it is really bad.
A local news station recently aired an investigative report on PC Gecko with a strong warning to consumers not to do business there:
The above-mentioned scams and ripoffs perpetrated by Charles J. Schuck III may be the least of his worries, as any criminal offense may violate the terms of his parole. Charles Schuck III has served prison time for previous felony convictions of fraud and theft by swindle. Would you trust your money, your PC, and its valuable data with PC Gecko?
