Beware - Ray Purselley (white male, 6ft, 180 lbs, mid 40's, bald) is SOCIOPATH (see Wiki definition) has bounced hundreds of checks with no intention to repay his debts. This person also sometimes travels with a "girlfriend" and small child. He has a common scam that includes manipulating property owners with distressed mortgages. Mr. Purselley will claim he owns a "successful" company of some sort, then use some funds on the way to purchase your home. Meanwhile, he'll likely try to occupy your home rent-free or at a reduced rental amount "until the deal closes". There is no deal. He is a phony con artist. Mr. Purselley roams mostly in Arizona (Phoenix and Scottsdale area) as well as Colorado (Denver area). He drinks heavily to the point of nightly sloppiness.
Ray Purselley has also scammed many people out of contracts for building materials. He typically requires "deposits" for goods/services related to construction with limited completion or complete lack of quality of completion of the work. He then proceeds to run off with all of your money. He commonly claims he's friends with celebrities and is very good at avoiding phone calls or paying bounced checks. He is nearly penniless, but spends LOTS of credit card money and bounces checks to buy impressive cars, clothes, etc.
He should be avoided at any cost. He scammed me out of nearly $100k. I also had the displeasure of obtaining proof of this string of crimes. Unfortunately, the FBI were unable to prosecute this person because check bouncing and the type of scams he does are not within their jurisdiction and local police also cannot nab check bouncers so he continues to operate unscathed. AVOID THIS CON ARTIST.
