It has come to my attention that "The German Dude, LLC" / Randall Evan Recknagel has moved to Big Bear Lake from Marina Del Rey, where he conned a friend of mine out of $40,000. This man is an international criminal and preys upon vulnerable women on game sites like www.pogo.com.

 He is a US citizen on the run who went to Germany and then came back owing about 450,000 euros and a trail of ripped off "investors". According to his ex brother-in-law, he has not filed taxes since 2007. His organic flat bread pizza or "socal flat" stand lasted just 2 weeks at Tiki Mon in Hermosa Beach and he even tried to borrow money from the owner who knew better. I have created a web page on my Mega Marine site to explain. On this page.. www.megamarine.com/recknagel.htm,
you will find background check info including bankruptcy, DWI, judgements, companies, former addresses and verified statements from victims who lost all of their investments in his companies. [continued below]....
..... His last known address was 13904 Fiji
Way # 141, Marina Del Rey, Ca, 90292 which he was evicted from. His phone #: 310-895-4973. His email: vladmarsecco@yahoo.com.

 I have alerted the Big Bear chamber of commerce and the Real Estate Association in case he tries to lease something. The IRS, Interpol and FBI have been alerted but they are taking way too long to respond. I have also sent an email
to businesses in the area to warn them about dealing with this con man. Please help to bring this low life to justice before he slips away again. THANK YOU!!

The Bottom Line

AUTHOR: Surfside7 - (United States of America)

Mr. Recknagel can spin this any way he wants but the the bottom line is that he can't support his lifestyle without conning more investors into giving him money for his worthless company. Ask him when he last had a real job. As to his allegations about my "burning through" my wife's inheritance, I supported her for 10 years of our 15 year relationship and we had a marriage of love not convenience. As anyone knows, times are tough in Florida right now and many people are in survival mode. I have a notarized document from the former Mayor of Cape Canaveral stating that we were the perfect couple. My wife was going through a midlife crisis when she met Recknagel on a game site and he talked her into sending him every penny she had left ($40,000) to invest in his doomed business. I am being contacted on a daily basis from people who have been burned by this man or suspect that he is a con man. Any information you have to share would be welcome.

Long Lost Sister

AUTHOR: The German Dude, LLC - (United States of America)

This is the long lost sister that I kept from prison with $5k .. for having kids set her trailer on fire in a small East texan town.. then trying to make a claim against her insurance company... she sent a $100 check after 9yrs.



This can be verified. However, the claims that have been made or "supported".. come from one Canadian who used an alcoholic to marry him so he could get US citizenship. Then proceeded to burn the inheiritance received from the death of her mother.



I am not for throwing dirt.. just keeping things real. However, this is getting out of hand, and as soon as funds become available, litigation will start. Hacking into someone's computer, calling people from the info received from this and slandering and stealing pics without permission is all illegal. Or just get a life.

His own sister says he's a con man.

AUTHOR: Surfside7 - (United States of America)

If Mr. Recknagel is not soliciting investors for his worthless company, The German Dude, LLC, then why is he asking for money at the American Legion in Big Bear Lake, CA. Eviction proceedings have started on his rental unit and an accusation has been made that he forged documents in order to re-register the title to a truck he borrowed that belongs to someone else. According to his ex brother-in-law, he ran from Germany and the matter of 450.000 euros he owes has not been resolved. When his long lost sister finally tracked him down, she said the first thing he asked for was money saying that his was all tied up in Germany. Quote: "He didn't give two shits about me or my welfare. All he wanted was money. He claimed his money is being held in Germany!  He only cares about himself!!  You can tell everyone that he doesn't  even care about his own family." I have it on good authority, that he is now targeting another married woman going through a mid-life crisis. Visit my website for the whole story: www.megamarine.com/recknagel.htm

Randall Recknagel

AUTHOR: The German Dude, LLC - (United States of America)

This is the second time I have written a rebuttal to this site. Obviously, it is only interesting to make accusations that could be harmful to a legitimate business. Probably the reason Jerry Springer and Maury shows are so popular.

Guilty without proof until proved innocent...

Yes, there was a bankruptcy in Germany. This has already been ruled in court and all alleged debts have been dismissed.

Currently, I am not seeking nor was I seeking investors for The German Dude, LLC.

The Apt. 141 in Marina Del Rey was in the Archstone Breakwater complex that sent eviction notices to every tenant due to the complex being under construction.

If you would like any documents to support what I have said, feel free to contact me. Very sad how some people have nothing better to do with there inactive lives than to try and place obstacles in front of those trying to change the current job situation in this country.. but JERRY...JERRY...JERRY...JERRY
