Business Owner defrauded out of his business by unscrupulous
and unethical business practices, and numerous deceptive trade acts.
I was fraudulently induced to purchase 2 Graceland
locations after working 8 months with 10-12 hour days. JD Laney and Kent Meyer
first provided fraudulent information so I would purchase these locations.
After purchasing the Reagor Springs and the Corsicana
locations I then learned that the previous month that Reagor Springs had done
only $30,000 in sales. Upon further examination, we started calling people back
listed in the sales logs that most of them were fraudulent entries. We were
approached by many of Kent Meyers previous customers and they explained how
they too were swindled by Kent Meyer and JD. We brought it to JD Laney(the
divisional manger)s attention, who basically said he could care less, which
was the norm of JD. The Corsicana
lot only had one sale after the purchase of it. However, in August they sold
$70,000. Please note that we kept the same sales staff as before the purchase
of the location. JD was fully aware of me purchasing these locations from Kent
Meyer, as he had to approve of me becoming a dealer at both these locations.
The Corsicana lot was doing good.
Out of total shock and disbelief, on October 1st, JD Laney, my two
salesmen, Kent Meyers brother, Brian went out to my location, threw all my
stuff in a U Haul truck and left it in a field. He then assisted Brian Meyer,
instructing my two salesmen to help him them move the buildings approximately 4
miles away to a new location. JD was well aware that I had signed a years
lease on this location, and paid Kent Meyer $20,000.
JD Laney and Kent Meyer provided me
with fraudulent sales numbers to induce me to buy these locations. He then
assisted and directed the theft of my business by Kent Meyers brother, Brian.
JD Laney was fully aware of what he was doing, as he is the one that had to of
approved the new dealer, Kents
brother, Brian Meyer. JD Laney, Graceland
Graceland Properties LLC, G.P. Portable Buildings LLC, and JDL Builders LLC
participated in fraud and deceptive trade practices. JD then tricked me into
bringing in all the contracts. He then told us that he moved all the buildings
off the lot and have stolen our salesmen. He waited until after he had all the
checks and contracts. I was also cheated out of all my marketing expenses, and
all my commissions.
Graceland Properties LLC, G.P. Portable Buildings LLC, and JDL Builders LLC owe
me thousands of dollars. This location, like all Graceland
locations have extremely unhappy customers because of the poor customer service
and their management tactics. I would be glad to provide names and numbers of
numerous unhappy customers once I get it approved through the customers.
Warning, to all dealers, potential dealers, vendors, suppliers, contractors
subcontractors, customers, be aware, all these companies are straight, corrupt
crooks. I would be glad to provide details or anything else you deem necessary.
You may contact me 24/7 at the number listed below. If you see the G on the
buildings, run away and dont look back, as you too will be swindled.
