I own a machine shop in New York and had two lathes for sale. Gino and shawn Parker and Rocky Mitchell came to my shop to by lathes. We agreed upon a price.

 

Several years ago, my wife died of cancer , since then, I donate the proceeds from certain sales to cancer research.    I had six 5-gallon buckets of carbide tooling for my annual donation..(about $5000 in scrap) Rocky and Shawn expressed interest in the carbide tooling but I explained to them that the scrap was spoken for.   Later, while I was distracted by a conversation with Gino (ironically about his families long history in law enforcement), they stole my scrap.

 

It's just heartless and ruthless to steal something that you know was going to be donated to Cancer research. I have notified the authorities but Shawn Rocky and Gino are still at large.

 

Gino shawn and rocky use prepaid cell phones that are nearly impossible to trace and a phony business card to make you think they run a legitimate business.

 

Don't fall for it like I did.

#1 UPDATE Employee

An Obvious Attempt to Slander an Excellent Reputation

AUTHOR: Sandra - (USA)

First of all in reading the report posted it is obvious the individual making the report (Paul Marks, a disgruntled ex-employee that is a distant family member) was grasping for something to use in an effort to condemn the family members (that’s right, this is a family matter that has no legal backing). There are no police reports, incident or case numbers. As we review the following details, it will become obvious why this matter should be ignored.

As far as the lathes are concerned, do you think the individual’s reported (Gino and Shawn Parker and Rocky Mitchell) would have been able to leave the building with such large equipment without having reached an agreement? It requires a forklift to load that equipment, lathes are extremely heavy. So they must have reached an agreement or the equipment wouldn’t have been loaded.

In addition, the second item reported, 6 - 5 gallon bucket of carbide easily weighs over a thousand pounds each. It’s not like you can hide it, sneak it, stuff it or conceal such an item easily, it would have required a forklift to load that item. And if it was worth $5,000 as mentioned in this fictitious report, a police report or incident number, or arrest record would have been provided. The so-called-victim would have also provided a company name, city, state or address in this report. Don’t you think?

As a final thought, this family has been in business for over 30 years. They have an excellent reputation. They have been located in the same place for many years. The last statement on the report states, “impossible to trace and a phony business card….etc…”, demonstrates a complete inaccurate report on all accounts. They are not only a legitimate business, they have multiple locations open to the public with websites, on-line stores, and a staff of employees that assist in keeping the business running smoothly in many different areas. They have the same telephone numbers, addresses and definitely have legitimate business cards.

You can review the individual’s mentioned negatively in this report, as well as their business, by going to www.industrialsurplusworld.com (you might also note they used the company name United Surplus, that is one of the family businesses but not the one for Gino and Shawn Parker or Rocky Mitchell but a different part of the family). I am an employee of Industrial Surplus, Inc. and have known this family for 7 months. They have an excellent reputation, are hard-working, diligent, and trustworthy individuals.

Thank you for taking the time to read this rebuttal, it is appreciated. Phillipians 4:13, "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength".

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Untrue & False Info & Allegations

AUTHOR: United Surplus Buyers - (United States of America)

I, Steve John, owner of United Surplus Buyers is rebutting the person whom wrote this report which is Paul Marks', my brother in law. He is an alcoholic, theif, liar and out right trouble maker.  He tends to try to get others in trouble based on false allegations.  Gino, Shawn and Rocky are good hard working individuals that would never steal from anyone- what is the machine shops name or location? It is not even given... I have a Christian family owned business that is established with many reference letters and recommendations from other companies.  I have been in Houston all of my life and am very established in the community.  These people whom have stated this report have no name, phone number or any contact information.  If any of this were true, they would at least put some sort of contact info.  No one is looking for us as they have stated and if so, we are very easy to find.  Whoever came up with this false story is really conniving and heartless. These people are trying to slander my company and I.  Their names are Paul Marks, his son Barry Marks and Joe Marks and his son Adam Marks. Please check into their criminal records and you will find convictions for theft, robbery, lying and cheating.  They are a group of people that are very untruthful and ruthless.  I, myself, Gino, Shawn and Rocky are honest individuals that would never think of anything as low and heartless like that. If you feel the need to contact my company please feel free:

Scrap

AUTHOR: Gino - (United States of America)

These are false allegations. If this is true, please, provide the customer name and number, But they will not be able to because it is a false report that was made up, Because, they are competitors who always lose the bids at auctions when we are involved. If we were really wanted by the police, we have been at the same location for years.
