The above website with the threads describe exactly what happened to all those suckered into putting a down payment on this Firestorm Monster Truck,

April 3, 2011 Ryan Martens - Business also called Midwest offroad, had posted this;

well everyone it is official, with a deposit made today, firestorm is in fact heading to utah, the truck will leave canada this summer and head to the USA, going to be sad to see the truck leave but the new owner sounds very excited to get the truck and put it to work.

I will leave it upto thenew owner to let everyone know who he is and i wish him luck and hope lots of people down in utah get to enjoy riding on FIRESTORM Midwest offroad. Home of FIRESTOM MOtORSPORTS

End of June, 2011 - One of the people who had still yet to receive anything wrote:

Heads up to everyone! I am the person who put the deposit on firestorm and am supposed to bring it to utah and after months of lies and deceipt it has been found that ryan martens is trying to scam me out of my deposit money and has sold firestorm to multiple parties including myself! Beware in any dealings that you may have with ryan!!! The police in the usa and canada are involved and hopefully i will get my deposit money back! 

Around that same time (end of June 2011), this had been posted by someone he ripped off before:

I am so sorry to hear that he is doing this to ANOTHER party!!!! I was one of the unfortunate parties to get screwed out of payment, and he also recently screwed over another party, and I'll leave it to them to mention if they choose to, and I am sure there are more and more out there that have been or will be screwed over by him. [continued below]....
..... 

It is truly unfortunate when one individual can work his way into an industry and screw over more people than it even sounded possible, and seems to ENJOY doing it to people!!!

YES PEOPLE BEWARE. DO NOT.....DO NOT.....DEAL WITH RYAN MARTENS!!!!! HE HAS SCREWED MANY PEOPLE OVER AND HAS GIVEN EVERYONE THE SAME RUN AROUND UNTIL THEY FINALLY GIVE UP ON HIM. DON'T BE A STATISTIC.

I hope that your venture with the police helps get this taken care of. My thoughts are with you, and if there is anything I can do to help, in any way, just let me know.

From the same thread around the same time, end of June 2011 yet a different other person Wrote:

I had some dealings with him a while back and luckily before anything was done I was contacted by a few friends who told me that it wasnt a good idea to deal with him. Im sorry to hear that my friends warnings had merit. Hopefully things can be resolved.

From the original person who put the original complaint wrote around the same time:

THIS IDIOT NOT ONLY POSTED IT ON THIS FORUM BUT WE ALSO DID THE TRANSACTION THROUGH PAYPAL AND EBAY. IF ANYONE HAS ANY EVIDENCE OF FRAUD OR MISDOINGS OR ANYTHING THAT CAN HELP WITH THE U.S. AND CANADIAN POLICE AND U.S./CANADIAN CUSTOMS PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH WHATEVER YOU CAN THAT WILL NOT ONLY HELP ME GET ALL OF MY MONEY BACK BUT PUT THIS GUY IN JAIL. MY EMAIL IS xxxx THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP WITH THIS GUY AND HELPING GET THIS DISEASE OUT OF THE COMMUNITY!

Around that same date, yet another person, different one, says:

I was one of the unfortunate parties to get screwed out of payment, and he also recently screwed over another party, and I'll leave it to them to mention if they choose to, and I am sure there are more and more out there that have been or will be screwed over by him.

Yet another different user stated:
I have MUCH to add to this post, however, at this time I shall wait till the dust has settled a bit and the right authorities have been contacted.

At this time I can vouch 100% to not have any dealings with Ryan Martens. He is a fraud, con-artist, liar and theif and basic trouble maker. He has done more damage to this industry in less than a year then I care to think about!

RCMP in two provinces have been contacted and files have been opened.  The US FBI has a fraud investigation opened and the US / Canada Boarder authorities are also aware of the fraud in process.  More tips or leads to add, please do.

AUTHOR: ryan - (Cuba)

hello im Ryan DJ Martens, former owner of midwest offroad, the company that both bought and sold the firestorm monster truck. if you want to believe any of this your more than welcome and if anyone can send me documents with my signature pertaining to any deposits being recieved for the firestorm monster truck, im sure no one in there right mind would send a large amount of money in return for not even having a legal contract in place? , your more than welcome to forward those to my email address, im sure if we had a contract in place you would be able to provide that for me. my lawyer would be more than happy to straighten anything out. i sold firestorm to the current owners after severl failed attempts at trying to sell the truck via monster mayhem, facebook and ebay. this rip off report was filed by my now ex wife carolyn who lives in edmonton and is making my life a living hell. she also tried to have me charged with firearms offenses to be able to cleam out the house we shared together. she is a class act. and i dont understand why she has to be such a witch about things, we broke up and i moved on and why cant she? if the people claiming that i ripped them off not posting this stuff on here why is she? i feel the need to set the record straight once and for all. like i said anyone who has my email address can send me an email and i will personally clairafy things. i recently lost someone that was very special in my life due to this bull and im not going to have that happen again, i have done some stupid things in the past but i have not done what my ex wife has said i have done, i have the respect to post my actual name on here but she has to hide behind justice for all? we all know carolyn is behind this. like i have said any interested parties can forward info to my personal email and i will be glad to rectify any problems i have with them. anyone with proper and ligit paperwork with serial numbers and my signature is more than welcome to call me. if im such a bad guy why did my ex not need anything the whole time i was together, some people need to grow up and move on with life, ill defend this to anyone and if this was true why am i not in jail? i have no pending charges aside from a fail to appear in court that i have delt with via a donation to the local sadd chapter, so my negative act is being turned into a positive act in the comunity, those who know me can look forward to more to come in the future in the positive nature.

Another sucker!!

AUTHOR: up_in_arms - (United States of America)

It's maddening and sickening all at the same time to know the good people and business's Ryan DJ Martens has scammed over the years.  I was unfortunately a statistic until recently.  I am embarassed to admit I have been around this con artist for 4 years and have lost $12,000.00

The family and friends I almost lost because of him, the financial ruin he has left me in.  Unfortunately it drew the line when he recently stole property from me and refused to return it.  Thanks so great new friends I have met along the way the property was recovered, charges have been filed and the RCMP now have multiple leads to press more charges and finally get this criminal locked away.  He ruined me financially, I lost a corporation, friends, a business, ruined my personal life and to know that he has more poor individuals at this very moment wrapped around his fingers is beyond frustrating as they refuse to listen as did everyone else in the beginning but will soon realize what a crook he really is.

To personally see him being run out of town in a small community in Saskatchewan was unreal, I was like everyone else at first believing the lies and deception, thinking he just had a run of the mill bad luck and others were just out to get him.  Come to find out because of him innocent people were sent to collections as he pocketed my companies money for himself.  Justice is being served now as dozens of people are now coming forward with paper trails and statements coming in.  Do not fall for this scam artist, he has a way of manipulating anyone he meets to get what ever he wants, well game over.

I hope others will step forward if they have any proof or information to add. He has screwed way too many people and I am proud that I am not letting him get away with it.  Be aware and stay away from Ryan DJ Martens. He is a professional con artist, scammer, lies and cheats to get what he wants, uses everyone he comes into contact with and steal from everyone, do not deal with him run in the other direction!!!! The RCMP are heavily involved now with charges already filed and justice is being served.
