I have Googled Hendrik Honer and cannot believe this scammer is still around.
Hendrik Honer has committed theft at Travelodge located at 3651 Blue Heron Blvd. in Riviera Beach, Florida. He stayed at Travelodge Motel for months and ended up stiffing owner Hem Hira and Raj Madhav, the owners of the Motel. He kept on telling them he will be paying them next week. When next week came, he would tell them next week again. He kept delaying payment for his motel room until he racked up thousands of dollars. I visited the owners of the motel recently since it is so close to my shop and they admitted to me that they remember the German shyster who has stiffed them. He told
them he had paintings he sold and he was running into delays with clients paying them. He would take his laptop computer to the motels office and show them to Google him and show them all of the positive reports about him, which was nothing more than Hendrik Honer writing about himself in a third person point of view so the search engines on the internet gave him positive ratings. He told them to look at his websites and to Google him and the owners were impressed to see him on dozens of pages and the write-ups about him (write-ups were written by Hendrik himself and he is not known by anyone in the art community) like he was famous. Him opening up dozens of websites and writing about himself is part of his con man business plan.
The owners of the motel are furious and are willing to talk to any law enforcement agency that will prosecute Hendrik
They are due thousands. The number to Travelodge is 561-844-2601. Travelodge is not the only housing business Hendrik Honer has scammed.
