Richey Jay Marcos is "The Facebook Bandit". If you are a single woman under 50 on FB, he's there looking for you. He is an internet predator. He found me, an old friend on FB after not seeing him for 5 years. I've known him for 20 yrs. He contacted me with this "Ruse". He claims that he has just moved out of his apartment, and about to go on Tour with the "Sleepy LaBeef" show. He claims he just needs a place to crash for a day or two. He insinuates himself into the homes of unsuspecting, lonely, single women with his boyish charms. A close family member testified that he has been doing this from FB for about 4 years now.
Then once inside my home, after eating a meal with me, watching some TV, sleeping on my couch for two nights, he went into my kitchen and stole $800+ from my purse. I saw him doing this but was in shock that I was alone in my house with a drug-addicted robber. He admitted to me that he had been in jail for illegal use of firearms and assault on a police officer, and that he was seriously addicted to pain killers and crack.
I called a friend for help in confronting him, but Richey ran out the front door before I could stop him. He admits in numerous phone calls and text messages what he did and has been promising to pay back the stolen money, but to no avail. He merely told me this to keep me from going to the police until he could leave town to go play in Little Rock Ark. Richey also stole my house key indicating that he expects to come back and clean me out when I am not home.
Richy has been preying on single women, old friends, fans, and widows on FB, where he found me. He represents himself fraudulently on his website that he has been touring with such acts as "Willy Nelson" and "Sheryle Crow" but in fact he is nothing but a two bit honky-tonk hussler . His only gig in MA was the Medway Cafe, with his "Underground Cats" band, but he's been fired from there for "not showing up for work".
If you or anyone you know has been a victim of Richey Jay Marcos, the "Facebook Bandit", please contact the Medford Police and add your story to the mountain of evidence now building against this womanizing criminal. You would be doing a public service.
