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.
