Where to start.

First, I refer you to the following link.  My story, and Mark Greenleaf's lying story, have been verified by a large-scale newspaper reporter.  And, I am not the first person that Mark Greenleaf and knivesofamerica.com have ripped off.  Just look around on Google.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/orl-knives-of-america-dawson-100109,0,2850391.column

Mark Greenleaf ripped me off of $1880.  I have the canceled check and long string of emails and excuses from him to prove it.  I ordered several high dollar knives from him in May 2009. 

To date, October 2009 - No knives ordered.  The only thing that I have received from him is a scanned check signed by him for $1880 that, well, he never sent.  Very clever.

If you look at the other complaint here on ripoffreport.com - he has the same modus operandi.

For those who have also been ripped off by him - feel free to let the Orlando Sentinel know your story.  Mark Greenleaf will be prosecuted on either, or both, the state and federal level.  Apparently he does not believe me - or just thinks that he is out of the reach of the consequences for his crimes now that he apparently lives in MD - but all in due time.

Since you will undoubtedly be reading this Mark - You are screwed.  Mark my words, and no pun intended.  You will be prosecuted, and prosecuted sooner rather than later.  Also, I look forward to whatever slanted response you want to make to this as a rebuttal.  Sure, fine, okay. 

Clever, or not so clever, words will not erase the fact that you have engaged in grand theft larceny - and, no, not the video game - in this case.  Add that to the countless others from gunbroker.com (user name "allaboutknives" is Mark; do a search) and you then have both a pattern and a conspiracy to commit since you readily have included (I presume) your wife Cara Greenleaf in your shenanigans.

To Mark's victims:

1.  Contact the Florida Attorney General's Office.

2.  Contact the Seminole County Sheriff's Office if the Shale Ct. address is where you sent your payment.

3.  Contact the Orlando Sentinel to share your story with Greg Dawson.  He is well aware of the Mark Greenleaf and knivesofamerica.com policy to rip off the customer.

4.  File a Mail Fraud report with the USPS.
www.usps.com

5.  File with the FBI Cybercrime Internet Crime Complaint Center.
http://www.ic3.gov/

6.  File an IRS Form 3949, Information Referral, to let them know that Mark Greenleaf will likely not be reporting as income that he and knivesofamerica.com have stolen from you.
www.irs.gov

7.  File a complaint with the Seminole County Tax Collector.  They might as well be up to speed too about the shenanigans.

Dirt Bag Indeed

AUTHOR: Mike - (United States of America)

Mike here from Cali,

Althogh Mark did send me my knife after three months of having to go through all types of people searchs and phone calls and rip off reports ect.

The thing that really got me is the fact that he always came up with these lame excuses and after all was said and done he would try to turn the story around saying that I was in fault! He probally got away with it a couple of times and thinks he can go around doing his thing, NOT ON MY WATCH YOU DON'T.

Message to  origional report: I hope you get your money back and yes a Dirt Bag Indeed,

How are the jails in Florida? Maryland any better?

AUTHOR: Mark Greenleaf is a Fraud - (USA)

Mark -





I hope I can assist these posters in taking you down you POS.  Go ahead, I dare you - call me a liar. 





To the original poster:



Contact the State Attorney for Florida re: opening a criminal case against Mark Greenleaf like I have done.  They are aware of this POS.





ebryant@seminolesheriff.org

In reference to case #2009-11495.

The State Attorney intake officer is Jerry Jones who read Dawsons article. He decides if cases are worthy of prosecution and then he assigns the case to an Attorney for follow up. His # 407-665-6000.

I received your packet and I recently spoke with Mark on the phone regarding the situation with your knives and money. He is currently in Maryland. He forwarded me a statement trying to explain  his actions. The case will go to the State Attorney for review next week.

I need a sworn statement detailing how you first knew of Mark and his online business. The fact that you sent him a check for knives that you didn't receive and your attempts to get your money back. I include where you sent the funds and the name of his business. Also include that others have been taken the same way.

Liar liar pants on fire...

AUTHOR: Mark Greenleaf is a Fraud - (USA)

Greenleaf, dude, you are classic.  You have sent nothing, and you know this.

You will be prosecuted.  You can continue to delusionally post that you have refunded my money.  You have not, and you know this.

You are up s**t creek my friend.  I am sitting back cashing refunds that you never send, but claim you do, just waiting for the Florida Attorney General to file charges.

You can continue to play f@ck around f@ck around all you like.  Fact remains that you are going to be prosecuted.  I hope I have made myself clear on this point.
