This report is about Tim Mona, real name Tanem Mona, also works with Jeffrey rapier and does business as papa marios.

I had the unfortunate luck of working with Tim Mona as a business partner.  He is a great talker and always finds a way to get things done without directly having to put things under his name or credit.  He has partnered up with Jeffrey Rapier who is a con man, can be found in the Michigan OTIS system, to get people to invest and then run away with the money.  

I have spoken to several of his old partners after one of them contacted me about his latest con.

His latest con was done with a pizzeria in sterling heights, MI.  He brought in an investor and then stole 15k from him.  

Before that he worked with the owners of a place called papa marios in shelby township, mi.  He embezzled over 125k with the help of Jeff. [continued below]....

Also in the 90's he worked for a chain called Olivers pizza as a salesman to expand the company.  Instead of expanding the company he stole money and leads to start up another chain.  The owner of Olivers called him a criminal.

From what I have gathered he is still trying to find "investors" to fund a place he calls Papa Marios, he has some type of plan to make it a sandwich and pizza shop that would compete with little caesers and subway.  He also will try to sell a whole slice idea, where the pizzeria manufactures slices and then sells them to local stores.  All of those ideas are a way to buy time, the longer he stays attached to the business the more he will be able to run up the credit and steal.  He has been really good at keeping his name clean, or at least fairly clean.  Always gets others to put their name on the paper and never brings money up front.  Avoid him and this buddies at all costs.  They will take all your money with a smile on their face.  

Also he has been trying to get into the cigar and liquor business.  Just a another demographic of people that need to beware of him.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

scam artists Tim Mona and Jeff Rapier, BABY B'S

AUTHOR: bspizza - ()

I have had the opportunity to work for tim mona and work with jeffery rapier. Tim mona had a business named papa marios out in algonac michigan which was an old bucemis off of d**e road. he screwd the owner of that company out thousands of dollars, even after the owner allowed tim to reside upstairs from the partystore. before that, tim mona screwed over the gentle men at roberts corner in marine city, he stole a ton of money, supplies and equiptment. 

After tim's papa marios in algonac idea went down the hole, he found a new victim and reopened a mexican restaurant on john r road in hazel park. the location was filthy and nothing was up to date. tim served costomers with a menu that was the previous owners and a very very dirty kitchen. the previos owner actually came into the store causing a scene and the police were called.  tim no longer owns that restaurant. i'm positive he scammed those people out of alot of money as well. 

after the mexican restaurant, he started at dollys pizza on nine mile road in warren. screwed them over, had enough money to fool a good friend of mine into running up his credit for slices pizza. which is now closed down. tim also goes by the name MR. Logan.

tim will talk you into investing into a far fetched idea, sell all your equiptment and pocket the cash. he does not pay his workers and all he does is sit on his obease rear. not to mention the harrassment on his employees. calling them names like dumb, stupid, f****t, etc. he is very unprofessional. tim will also bring members of his family into the business so they can help scam cash from the honest entreprenuers.

Tim has an extensive record in macomb county, as well as jeff rapier. sale and possesion of cocaine multiple counts, larceny, etc. tim drives a beat up white ford van with a blown out window in the back. and is also associated with Baby B's restaurant on fifteen mile and kelly. owned and operated by a guy named basil and his wife. tim also tries to get people bridge cards and give them half of what its worth in cash. which is illegal.

tim was also selling illegal fireworks out of the vacant building next door to BABY B'S a few years back. tim likes to post on craigslist to find employees and investers. he likes to type in all caps lock so beware. i have personally flagged quite a few of his posts.  please do not fall victim of these scam artists. 

Thank you to whoever it was that found this site and made the people aware of this scammer.
