*Author of original report: It's all true about these two guys Richard Cosentino & John Schmutzer
I have a signed contract by Richard Cosentino stating PAID IN FULL $21,300.00 and a promise of completion in 2 weeks. Mr. Cosentino never completed the car and told us one excuse after the other. Then Mr. Cosentino stopped returning our calls.
On July 8 and 9, 2009 I drove to Mesa and was able to catch Mr. Cosentino at his home. He told my wife and I that we were trespassing and if we didn't leave he was going to call the police. We stayed in Mesa another evening and later on that day confronted Mr. Cosentino at his shop. I saw the car I purchased under a tarp because I recognized the rims on the vehicle, but he said it wasn't mine and forced me to leave with a shotgun located at arms reach and said that we were never going to get anything from him and there was nothing we could do about it. $21,300.000 is not worth my life so we returned home to Los Angeles.
After speaking to an attorney, I realize I may never get any of my money back and certainly won't get a car from Mr. Cosentino, but I do not want this to happen to other hardworking, innocent people. Since then, I have seen my car for sale on Ebay, Craigslist, KitCars.com, and KitCarMagazine.com I have also spoken to several other victims that have experienced the exact same thing I have. Some other victims include Jim Haszinger (taken for $37,500.00) out of New Orleans and Doron Azoulay (taken for $33,900.00) out of Maryland. There are even more victims, including a guy from Norway. You can read about more victims if you go to www.RichardCosentino.com and/or (((Redacted)))
Richard Cosentino also has a "silent partner", John Schmutzer, out of Ohio, who is now selling Richard's cars for him because Richard has been banned from eBay. John Schmutzer's contact number is 330-506-3202. His address is 54 Walnut St., Mt. Gilead, OH 43338. Basically, Richard Cosentino (AZ driver's license number A13632571, d.o.b. 10/30/1965) is selling the same vehicle over and over and over. He is commiting not only internet fraud, but also wire fraud, interstate fraud, and I am sure he is not telling the IRS about his earnings. Mr. Cosentino claims to have a business license and dealer's license, but I have not been able to find these numbers and he would not supply me the information.
On July 27, 2009, I went to my local FBI field office in Los Angeles and talked to Duty Agent Glenn Canino and he suggested I contact the Phoenix branch and complete the IC3 form. He informed me that by myself the FBI probably wouldn't be interested, but with all the victims and the amount of money stolen in total, the FBI might be able to help us out.
