They use several different names...including corporate names...but they are the same slicksters who have been defrauding and cheating people in several states. Lucille claims to be in the Navy or Naval Reserve.
THEIR SCAMS AND LIES are extensive and really outrageous.
Phillip Prince has represented to many people that his a "famous" designer or silk fashions....and similar claims. We know because he spent several years in and out of Las Vegas, NV ripping people off with his INVESTMENT SCAMS telling these fabricated stories. He also puts it in writing in his Business Plans and other documents. However, to our knowledge, he was in Las Vegas making claims to have "contracts" with major companies such as: BLOOMINGDALES, SAKS FIFTH AVE., etc.-- and also with "celebritities" such as: Toni Braxton, Cher, Snoop Dogg, and other stars --- but he had nothing of the sort during the past 3 years.
We know because he was in and out of Vegas and bounced checks on us and other people that we know. They had an apartment here and an office, while maintaining a store in Los Angeles.
He also ripped of unsuspecting, innocent people whom he tricked into his investment scams telling these same types of lies. He also tricked some younger people into thinking they would be "models" in his "fashion shows"--and he would give them contracts to earn a lot of money.
Las Vegas holds one of the biggest "design conventions" in the world...and last summer 2007 PHIL AND LUCILLE PRINCE convinced several "investors" to put up money to for him to be in that show. He was not in the show, did not have a booth there or any contract with any major store in Las Vegas. It was all a lie. But he did RIP OFF several people in NV for large sums of money...over half a million dollars.
Phil and Lucille did nothing but deceive people with these lies. He has Mercedes cars that he acquired via these same types of scams. Using the names of corporations that he files, they did rip off many innocent people. SOME OF THE BUSINESS NAMES INCLUDE:
* Silk Fashion Galleries.....* Silk Racing.....* International Designs...* Prince Resort Group...*Beverly Hills Club....etc.
He has filed these corporations in Delaware, California and in Nevada...and maybe other states.
WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN HE WAS EVER ASSOCIATED DIRECTLY with lots of movie stars, celebrities or Rap Artists. He may have met some...but he did not have any money or contracts with any of them for at least the past 7 to 10 years when he was in Las Vegas, Arizona and California doing his scams. Prior to that....apparently--according to records -- he was in Chicago, IL doing time in a FEDERAL PRISON for Bank Fraud.
A LARGE COLLECTION AGENCY in Reno, NV has information about cases where they tried to collect from Phil and Lucille. Another Collection Co. out of NY and one out of Louisiana --all tried to collect from him. He refused to pay...although he admits owing these fraud victims the money.
Lucille was as heavily involved in the fraud, credit scams, etc. as Phil, although his is the HEAD of the operation. She helps him with paperwork, accounting and taking money off CREDIT that unsuspecting investors provide them. They ripped off a woman in Vista, CA --using her credit cards without her permission. They also ripped of a man and his friend in Henderson, NV for large sums of money.
Phil and Lucille ripped off a man in Las Vegas named Solomon Walker, who was supposedly their business partner too. That was for a huge sum of money.
IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE COPIES OF ANY DOCUMENTS that show proofs of the BAD CHECKS, COURT CASES, etc. --what we are saying...just contact us via EMAIL.
They are not "celebrities" and we cannot figure out when they were ever associated with any stars or "celebrities" --as before these incidents listed here...Phil had been living from pillar to post, getting evicted many times, and there is a record from the FEDERAL COURTS that he was in prison approx. 4 or 5 years ago for BANK FRAUD.
They also have cases on the record with CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES in Las Vegas, NV. She was in jail for a while for some type of neglect of the 2 minor children...and maybe other offenses.
After several people began demanding their money back, or filing complaints with the BBB, Attorney Generals, Dept. of Corporations, etc.-- they became hostile and threatened some people.
Then he and Lucille absounded to Los Angeles when the D.A. and other law enforcement began to investigate them. They have been evading the COLLECTION AGENCIES, investment scam victims, and the law.
