This is a copy of my Police Report:
In March 2017 I was searching the internet for a company that sold spray truck bed lining machines for a new bumper business I was wanting to start. I wanted to be able to spray bed lining on bumpers. Spray-lining and coating a division of flexible lining systems was third on the search engine list, in fact the following 7 listings were also linked to this company.
I contacted several companies and received several quotes. Randy Loutz, aka Julius Lupowitz with Spray-lining and coating called me back and told me about a repossessed machine that a bank had called him on in Dallas. [continued below]....
He said that the applicator Leroy and Kurt (also aka Julius Lupowitz) that was in my area had left and went to Arizona to spray solar panels. He gave me the phone number of Leroy 480-389-0144 and said that his business name Doctor Line A Bed. He stated that it would cost $10,200 up front and that all material purchased would come out of that $10,200, it would include two years of free technical support, also he would fly down within 2 weeks and do a 2 day training class; this never happened. When I called him 2 weeks after sending him the money he said that I needed to get some extra employees together so he could train at least 4 people at the same time. (later he would change this to it needed to be on site with a real job but I needed to get certified first) The agreement is on one of the emails attached. As well It would include himself, other employees, all of the machines and equipment needed for any type of coating application also a free web site with my business name and personal business email.
I was worried about how fast I would get jobs to get my $10,200 back so he told me to call Leroy since he worked my area. I called Leroy and he said he was from my town and that he had been buying from Randy aka Julius Lupowitz for 20 plus years. He said I would make the $10,200.00 back within a month or two. He stated that he bought most of his material from him still but on color material he would purchase from BASF because their product was better on colors. I wired the $10,200 to Randy’s bank (also attached) thinking I could do some coating jobs on the side and it would be a way for me to raise money for my bumper business. After 1 week he had my website setup. He said any emails I get he would receive a copy. I received a quote request the very first week the website was set up, requesting a bid on insulating 1108 pieces of 4ft x 4ft aluminum panels, requesting product SLC208e. They stated that the previous dealer applicator 185 (Leroy) was no longer available in my area and was looking for a SLC applicator within so many miles of Valero PT. Arthur, the quote request was for a specific part number SLC 208e which only SLC makes. Randy used this to convince me it was a legitimate company, saying that Leroy was 185 and his certification number was on the email as well. He also stated that he knew the other partners on the PO; this was later on once the (PO) ALCS 11-662 was issued. The quote request came from Julius aka Justin Nolan with a company called J&J fabrication and DSE Contracting and partners in Canada; it was supposed to be a job for Valero in Port Arthur Texas.
Since I contacted spray lining and coating in the beginning I wasn't thinking that it could be a scam, especially after he helped me buy this machine at such a low price.
I read a few reviews on the company online which turns out that they apparently set up themselves to make themselves look good or legitimate. Randy aka Julius Lupowitz told me that they receive all emails that I receive so I called him and asked him if he received the quote that I received, he acted like he didn't know about it. He said wait a second let me check my email and then he said, oh yeah there it is, he made it sound like it was too big of a job for a company like us and that we wouldn't get it but that he would bid it anyways. I asked Randy aka Julius Lupowitz to verify that this is a legitimate company because my background is in printing, he assured me that they were, pointing out several things that had to make it legit.
So he bid the job to me at $149,000 my cost, then he told me how much to Mark it up. I submitted the quote to Justin aka Julius Lupowitz with J&J aka DSE Contracting $441,000 for insulating 1108 pc’s. J&J accepted the quote but stated that they needed the certified applicators Certification Number and they needed a (COA) certificate of authenticity & it would have to check out before they could ship the sub lot of 370.Randy aka Julius Lupowitz stated since I wasn't certified yet, we could use his Certification Number which was 31-A2. J&J sent me a PO ALCS 11-662 for two lots totaling 2640 pieces requesting the first lot of 1108 be expedited. Randy aka Julius Lupowitz said my cost on the material was $149,000 and would have to be paid before his boss would let him mix up all the material, he told me to try to get them to take less qty up front like 370 pieces that way when they dropped of the first lot, it would cover my total cost, he went through a big spill about having to meet with the owners about giving terms, like net 30 etc.. I sent the request to J&J fabrication, they agreed to doing the 370 pieces with 50% down at drop off & 50% at pick up. Randy came back with i needed to pay $10,000.00 and they would give credit on the balance. Randy aka Julius Lupowitz said this is standard practice in this field. I wired Randy the $10,000.00 to get the material made up. (wire attached) J&J was putting fast deadlines on the job, needing to get it done ASAP.
Randy's company aka Julius Lupowitz said it would take 2 weeks to get the material made, by this time the first lot of 370 SLC208e material was in transit to me. This time made the due date overlap. J&J came back with they had been reprimanded by DSE for the small lot of 370 and DSE wanted the full 1108 pieces done.
Justin with J&J aka Julius Lupowitz then told me he couldn't do the 370 lot because it took us off the pre-approved vendor list. (Randy said that was correct) J&J sent me an updated purchase order PO ALCS 12-662 with the new lot quantity and payment agreement, they were to pay 35% at drop off of the material and 65% at picking it up. (Also attached)
After about 2 or 3 weeks I received what I was told was the chemicals to do the job. Ground up rubber and some 55 gallon barrels of no telling what(I now think is soap). I still have all the material. I contacted Randy aka Julius Lupowitz, always forwarding Justins emails. Randy told me that he could get the extra material made up but I would have to pay 33 - $35,000 more out of the invoice for $149K or his bosses wouldn't let him make the material. He also stated that he was just going to go ahead and do it based on the % they had given him before. J&J emailed me and said that DSE needed to complete 1108 pieces immediately and that they were shipping the panels from Canada and there was some slight border delay. They also needed the COA to check out and said there was no weight on the updated COA but it was ok. (Randy had told me the only way he could get a new COA done so fast was to leave the weight off). The COA supposedly contains material mfg. shipping weights and tracking numbers.
Every email that I received from J&J aka DSE aka Julius Lupowitz I would send to Randy and Randy aka Julius Lupowitz would advise me on how to reply to every email since I did not know the business yet.
So I borrowed $35,000 from a business owner in XXXX Tx. (See attached agreement) that I am renting a warehouse from to do the work in. I am paying $2,000 a month rent for a 3000 square foot Warehouse. I agree to pay the business owner $5,000 interest for a two-week loan of $35,000 because Randy told me the material would be in within 2 weeks. (I have the tracking info attached) I then had the person I borrowed the money from wire the $35,000 to Randy company on my behalf. Justin with J&J sent me pictures of the material finished, pictures of the crates to be packaged, all of the specs of how much the crates would hold and how much they would weigh. After I received the material to do the application on the four by four sheets of metal and After several delays and multiple excuses turned into months of waiting. I become very concerned because J & J stopped replying to all of my emails. I emailed an invoice to J&J and told him that it was for my cost incurred to date and that it needed to be paid. Justin Nolan aka Julius Lupowitz was my contact with J&J, he told me that he would submit the invoice but it was out of his hands. After two or three weeks and not hearing from him again I sent him an email telling him that I needed the invoice paid immediately, he told me he resubmitted it that Monday with needing to be paid as urgent and necessary. Mean while Randy aka Julius Lupowitz is calling me acting like he was getting in trouble with his bosses and was going to have to file bankrupt if this didn't go through. Always telling me to put pressure on J&J which I left several phone messages 587-883-9633. They have changed the business name 3 times on this number. J&J Fabrication, J&J Fabrication with DSE Contracting to DSE Contracting.
Randy had told me upon receiving the $10k for the 370 lot that he had gathered all the machines, 30-something templates and the extra material that would not make the COA balance out & shipped it to Lake Charles airport and stored in a storage locker. It was always rush rush then wait wait. Randy told me he had Kurt, which owed him a favor, to make up an additional 30 templets. He said he had him ship them to Lake Charles Airport and put with the other machines. He would tell me several times that he was on call 24 hours waiting on me to give him a job start date from J&J, that he and two other employees would be there to assist me in doing the job. He also stated that it would serve as my class training time.
After so much time went by, about 3 months, I contacted Joe xxx-xxx-xxx on July 5th with Lake Charles airports and he confirmed there was no storage at any of the three airports in Lake Charles for SLC/Flexible Lining Systems. I question Randy aka Julius Lupowitz about this and ask for shipping manifest flight number, contact people Etc. He has yet to reply to that request. Attached is the email stating that material was in Lake Charles Airport.
After this I emailed Randy demanding a full refund of $55,300 by the 30th of June or I would seek legal action. I stated to him that it was peculiar that he set up the website and within one week I had one quote request and no other quote request in the following three months. He replied on email all of the convenient things that he had done to help me and that this personally hurt him.
He stated he would continue to help me as long as I didn't threat legal action against SLC. Randy also replied that I pursued him and that he did not pursue me in his email reply which is false. I began to pursue every person or company listed on the purchase order from J&J trying to verify that this was a legitimate job. Harris Rebar was one company on the PO, which is a worldwide company. I called and spoke with Lyne Gilbert a supervisor in the company about what was going on, he asked if I could email him the purchase order so he could review it, I sent the email and he replied that Harris Rebar has nothing to do with the job and that the verbiage sounds like English was a second language to him. I will attach that email as well.
I contacted Valero Port Arthur purchasing department as well as their head electrician since this job was supposed to be in the electrical department. I was told they had no such job. I then called Valero headquarters in San Antonio, I was directed to purchasing which was on the phone with me for over 30 minutes trying to help me out but come up with there was no such job. Also did searches for all the addresses listed on the purchase order and they pretty much came up as Highway intersections with no businesses close by. I contacted sergeant XXXXXX, at XXXXX Police Department in XXXXXX Tx and gave him some basic information emails and a photograph of Randy aka Julius Lupowitz. Within a short time I received a reply with a link to a rip off website that laid out the exact scam he had done to someone else, it also stated his real name, Julius Lupowitz. I was then advised to file a fraud report with my local Newton County Sheriff Department. Kevin Root also aka Julius Lupowitz is suppose to be the owner. See attached Spray lining & Coating Review by MEC. ALL FAKE
