Christopher G. Manuel, plain and simple, is a con artist and felon.  He has a ton of criminal charges, but the incident that me and 15 other innocent individuals was involved in is as follows:

Manuel set up a fake company.  I say fake, but as far as the company and tax info, it was legit.  It's what he was doing and using it for that was a fraud.  

He set up shop in the Virginia Employment Commissions offices, where for a month or two he interviewed many people, but "hired" me and 15 others.  During the interviews he had everyone fill out the tax forms, an odd practice but going through the VEC everything seemed on the up and up.  A few weeks after interviews he holds a meeting in the VEC's conference room with all the employees.  His new start up company would be opening a week from then and we were to all report to the new office building on the start date.  He went over company info and introduced everyone, etc.

It was a pretty elaborate and planned out con apparently.

Two weeks went by working for his company, BAZ Construction.  As a team effort everyone was helping to build out the company's new offices.  Walls were being framed, floors were being jack hammered to run bathroom drain lines, everything was moving along and people were working hard.  Till one afternoon Chris is missing.  Around lunch the Executive Admin and VP (who he had really screwed over) asked everyone to gather for a meeting.  They explain they had caught on to Chris's scheme and found a list of criminal charges on him.  Basically, there was no money to pay anyone and he had been writing bad checks for all the supplies used to build the place, along with stealing some of the employees info to apply for credit cards and leases.

Christopher G. Manuel was also apparently in jail in Newport News for impersonating a federal agent for 2 years and has other charges all over Virginia including embezzlement and writing checks on closed accounts.  He drives a green Chevy Tahoe, with handicap OH plates

I'm not quite sure what the scheme was, but he has personal information including SSNs on anyone he interviewed and hired and has obviously committed identity theft.  I believe he also has a company called CBZ Systems.  He's currently on the run.  If you see his name anywhere, or companies, do your research. Don't get scammed by this piece of sh**.

Really

AUTHOR: Mark - (USA)

 Well it seems, your info is wrong. No federal charges were filed on him other than his past, charges, plus yes read the Henrico county court site. It says he was charged for a bad check to a hotel. No other charges. Plus the Charges Ms. Barlow tried to File about reckless driving were droped do to Ms. Barlow not telling the truth,and yes I was an employee there and if you think hard you might figure out who. I have nothing against Brooke other than I was there the day Chris fired her. So you can't believe every thing she says. Just ask some of her past employers. But then again I think this is Brooke still trying to cause Chris problems.

Completely false info.

AUTHOR: - ()

I don't know where you got that info, but your info is completely false. You are either him or someone close to him who refuses to believe facts posting on his behalf. Either way you are certainly not an ex-employee cause it was a small group of us and you would have known what really happened. You can search his name on the Henrico County court website and find all of his charges which include fugitive from justice, grand larceny, defrauding hotels/motels, and forgery. And that doesn't include other federal charges.

Brooke got screwed over just like the rest of us, and had absolutely nothing to do with his PREVIOUS charges and jail time for impersonating a federal agent before this whole fiasco. So no, he certainly did not get messed over by her. She was just the one following up on everything and keeping us updated, so you probably have something against her.

Question

AUTHOR: Mark - (USA)

I was an enployee and when i talked to the police, they said Mr.Manuel did nothing wrong that is why no charges were filed, it was becuase of a female who use to work there that was named Brooke Barlow, who lied about all this and they police told me that is why no charges were placed. So i guess Mr.Manuel was the one who got messed over by her.
