We have so many other customers that this person has ripped off on top of my company, North River Dental.

Byron Staton and Julio Perez came in and promised me that they would pay off my old lease and proved me with a new copier and service. They never padi off my old lease, never provided me with new copeirs they promised and never gave me even one day of service or toner. They have been doing this scam with Orlando and Tampa based business and there are a lot of people out there that have yet to even come forward.

Byron was alaos arrested on 6/21/2010 and booked intot eh Sarasota County Jail for Fraud..

You can tyoe in his real name Barrett Staton mugshots and the Sarssote County Jail website will come up with the rtecent charge of fraud.

He is still out ehre in Orlando now with Julio Perez commiting fraud in Orlando and DCentral Florida now. be on the watch for him becuase they will not do anything they say they will. I am now stuck with two lease payments no service and old used copiers that were not the ones they proposed to me.

Staton Brothers Sentenced

AUTHOR: montcosquire - ()

Barrett and Matt Staton were convicted and sentenced on December 13, 2013.  Article below:

Brothers Sentenced to Prison for Defrauding Churches, Non-Profit Organizations, and Small Businesses

December 16, 2013

WILMINGTON, Del. – Charles M. Oberly, III, United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced today that Barrett Staton, 36, of Nokomis, Florida and his brother, Matthew Staton, 37, of Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, were sentenced on December 13, 2013, in federal court for defrauding numerous Pennsylvania and Florida-based churches, non-profit organizations, and small businesses.  Barrett Staton was sentenced to 108 months in prison, five years supervised release, and ordered to pay $2,070,529.74 in restitution.  Matthew Staton was sentenced to 60 months in prison, three years supervised release, and ordered to pay $1,967,926.10 in restitution.  Following a thirteen-day jury trial in July 2012, the defendants were convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, as well as various counts of wire and mail fraud.  Barrett Staton was also convicted of making a false statement in a loan document.  The defendants, led by Barrett Staton, operated businesses that supplied copy machines to churches, non-profit organizations, and other small businesses throughout Harrisburg, Lancaster, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania, as well as in and around Sarasota, Florida.  

The defendants engaged in a multifaceted scheme to defraud businesses and organizations by: (1) altering signed lease agreements to include additional copy machines or features that the customers did not order and never received, thus increasing the lump sum payment received from the financing companies; (2) enticing customers into agreeing to a new lease by offering to pay off any old copy machine leases and to provide free maintenance and service, and then failing to either pay off the customer’s old lease or to provide free maintenance or service; and (3) inducing existing customers to complete new leasing applications under the guise of “refinancing” the lease on existing copy machines, and then submitting the new leasing application to an entirely different leasing company, thereby collecting a second lump sum payment and obligating the customer to two separate lease payments on the same copy machine.

The court found that there were over fifty institutional victims, mostly churches, non-profit organizations, and other small businesses, with losses exceeding $2 million. Evidence introduced at sentencing showed that the defendants operated a sophisticated scheme that employed sham companies, used fictitious names to conceal the defendants’ identities, and relocated the scheme from Pennsylvania to Florida to avoid law enforcement.  In total, the defendants ran this fraudulent scheme for over seven years until law enforcement successfully ended their fraud.

U.S. Attorney Oberly congratulated both the FBI and Assistant United States Attorneys Jaime M. McCall and Mark M. Lee for the complex investigation and prosecution of this case, which took several years and the review of thousands of documents.  The Staton brothers preyed upon vulnerable churches and non-profits, as well as small businesses in a particularly devious manner in an attempt to enrich themselves.  Now both will have years in prison to contemplate their crimes.  
The investigation was handled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution of the case was handled by Assistant United States Attorneys Jamie M. McCall and Mark M. Lee.

Staton Brothers In Federal Court

AUTHOR: montcosquire - ()

 Barrett and Matt are indicted and case is slowly making its way in the US District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania

CRIMINAL ACTION NOS. 10-800-01, 10-800-02.  Despite stall tactics by their attorneys, Barrett and Matt are looking at serious jail time. Matt even argued with the judge and had his bail revoked!  Seems these both are finally being served the justice due to them.  I told you Matt that the government moves slowly and investigates before they convict. The Federal Prosecutor won't go to court unless the facts are in their favor.  Looks like you and your brother are going to learn that lesson the hard way.  Hope you both enjoy prison!

Staton Brothers Have a History of Deception

AUTHOR: tbman - (United States of America)

Barrett is the ring leader and for a few years he had several family members involved.  However, he and brother Matt or Matthew (depends on alias's) have been doing this in PA and now Florida since 2004.  They use the same mo.  Promise customers to get them out of their lease, give them new equipment (usually used), service for the life of the lease (sometimes at no cost) and full payment to satisfy their current lease and return the equipment.  However, it is impossible to do so!  These guys get funded up front from the leasing company when you sign with them. They profit thousands of dollars while you are defrauded and usually left with a combination of the following:  Old equipment missing and never returned to the original leasing company.  A lease payment that includes dollars allocated for service that they received for the full lease term, when the machine was delivered to you, that you will pay every month until lease end but have no service provider.  This will force you to find another service company and you will have to pay them in addition to your lease.  DO NOT EVER SIGN A BLANK LEASE WITH THEM AND GET A COPY OF WHATEVER YOU SIGN AND HAVE IT NOTARIZED. They are notorious for adding equipment and serial numbers to leases after customers have signed them to collect more money!
