Regarding Case #592010CF000253A

Charged with the following counts:
LARCENY - $300 OR MORE LESS THAN $5000    

Sentencing Information at:


Sentenced to only 24 months CONCURRENT on counts, LESS time already served.


Regarding Case #592010CF001767A

Charged with the following counts:

Looks like ALL he got was probation AND its all concurrent AND transferable
for Case #592010CF001767A:
Sentencing Information at:


Only PARTIAL restitution.

And, that probation MAY automatically terminate after 12 months.

He can even go back to New York and serve out the probation there.


So... does he do the 24 months less time served for 592010CF000253A,
and THEN begin the probation period for 592010CF001767A? Go figure!

Oh... and good luck with the reduced restitution and court cost
recoupment. We all know how that worked out in previous cases.

Oh well, let us see how Orange County handles the charges in their

YES ! WE Have Won The Battle ! And The War ! but its not over as of this poster..........

AUTHOR: Robert Ross , real landlord - (United States of America)

As it stands I will give the actual details when the exact are offered me ! but as of today SA, M Raurk has contacted me, and all charges have already been settled ( 32 felonys ) all thats left are . my worthless check charges to go to a restitution review hearing , which I plan to attend , in Nov.

The sheriff site has that already but has not updated that on the web page , but from the past info and its not been confirmed but the word from sources say that it ended up 4 yrs / 11 probation / restitution and self help classes from this point in seminole county......... thats that ,

Now orange county already has him down for some community service and restitution and there are some other charges which may come to light as some warrents were outstanding that the police were not aware of , or even new that jeffrey was encarcerated , Sounds funny but true , so who knows what the Orange will squirt at Jeff ....

Now as for the rest , I will be filing charges for everything I have , and hope it really adds worth , for the loss I have endured over the course of time and money I have invested in this whole matter from inception...

In terms of finance it has taken an amount in the area in excess of $40,000 , all included , and in terms of time its been almost obsessive from when I first conceived a scam 2/20/10 ( still counting days and months ) as I said I will not Let go ! and will never forget !!!! If and when he gets out I will know and his probation will be followed to the letter !!!!! COUNT ON IT !!!!!

and in terms of other loss  of family time for the many occasions lost for all the unecessary trips and to Fl. and promisses I have had to break due to this guys flagrent frauds and lies etc . that I can never recover.

to Add , the unforseen stresses onto the so many unspeakable prevocations inflicted on me and my family , and some maynot understand what I mean but there are Many many many , many other victims who do understand what I am speaking of .

Its not so hard to keep writing as there is still a world of confusion as to why Jeffrey insisted on continueing to scam myself as many of my new found friends along with His Dad , even though he was well warned of the result we guarenteed him.

 read the past posts. follow the evidence posted , read the responces and everyone will find Humor But along with that reality of the past devistation , and frustration that continues building in the minds and lives of past victims that is ongoing with the economy , employment , taxes , etc added to the already damaged situations of the many , will continue to keep this on the forefront of updateing and following through with the words of those past , who are honorable and honest to their words .( I being one of those people )

More to Come !!!

Collection time for The court !!!

AUTHOR: Equalizer !! - (United States of America)

It seems as though Jeffrey needs to decide to Plea with the deal at hand , I am suprised of the offer they are giving him , 2 / 8 w/restitution of about 24,000 and thats for all the felonys together ( unbeleivable ) but true , ( pretty decent of the state ) so actually in terms of jail time Jeffrey may end up being in jail for only 16 months (if that long) , after time served( if any ) deducted from his stay, and any good time that he may have accumulated during as well , 

This does not include any charges in orange county though , those would be seperate , Its good to know that the bounty hunter , no bull , eddie poirier , angry churchlady , bob ross , and a few more victims are still watching and offering info include me in as well as a few more I am aware of.

I did notice that there will be a hearing on oct. 20 /2010 for these matters , I also heard that the court may also be a little to busy to accomodate this as quickly as they are claiming , so maybe a delay is in the cards , But it still wont be for long , unless Jeffrey Decides he doesent want this offer .

Mr fly on the wall from inside . ( I dont know if anyone remembers him ) But the Buzz is Jeff may reconcider , due to to the restitution repayment , he may think everyone is gone , and try to fight it or something ( ? )  I also noticed that the very 1st post in this thread is from a vacationer named George cooper , LOL , Dead grandfather , lawyer , and He is the first dead guy that ever lost a judgement suit ,

just remembering the lies make me laugh !   He also signed a receipt posted in a past post here on ripoff , Hes dead a long time , (Jeffrey is heartless) and cannot be rehabilitated its a waist of time and money for the state , we all know this why doesent the state of Florida.

Along with the plea , if taken will come the probation of 8 yrs , and all sort of classes he will need to agree to take , ( most of which he has already taken from his conviction in NY in 2001 ,2003 through 2007

If any one is yet left still holding charges , or claims against Jeffrey , now would be the time to file them.

If Jeffrey does get out he will go Imeadiatly back to scaming people and businesses , thats all he knows , Fedex , ups , publix, bagel store , 5 guys , pizza ,will again be putting everyone in the loss situation , Landlords need to beware , as well as pet stores among all others ,( But WE WILL BE WATCHING CLOSELY )SO HE DOESENT BREAK HIS PROBATION  !!!! or back in the slammer .... 

His father has an injuction / permanent against him now ( he cannot go home to papa, also jeffrey has no Drivers License and his office I saw was towed away , so he cannot drive - but as we all know that never stopped him before , He used william moores lic # in the past , And good ole jacob goldstein , ( Retired Fire cheif from Queens NY ) to pay his utility , bills,  elect , brite house , ATT etc .

Keep watch , Dont fall prey again !!!

Hirschkorn is Neutered Replacement Balls Have Arrived

AUTHOR: The Bounty Hunter - (United States of America)

Jeffrey Hirschkorn has been neutered.

Below are his replacement balls.

The Bounty Hunter will hunt you down if you mess with me or any of my people.

I will take what's yours if you take what's mine.

I belive in an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, 2 balls for 2 balls.

We hear Hirschkorn is singing Soprano ever since he lost his balls.

Jeffrey is in jail because of 2 relentless victims plus one very helpful one.

Let me thank you all.

The big mouth isn't responding any more, is he?

And they said we didn't have the balls.

Guess what?

We do.

#5 UPDATE Employee

Grandpa George Cooper is Dead but buys a vacation from Peabody Vacations

AUTHOR: Broke Ex Employee - (United States of America)

How does a dead man buy a vacation package from his grandson years after his death?

How is George Cooper making posts if he is no longer alive concerning his wonderful vacation experience?

George Cooper never bought a package from Jeffrey and he never made any posts in here either.

Jeffrey Hirschkorn is responsible for making the George Cooper Posts and Jeffrey Hirschkorn is also the same person who sends e-mails out pretending to be George Cooper.

Jeffrey Hirschkorn is the person who had cards issued in George Coopers name and used George Coopers cards to make illegal purchases.

I have read in Rip Offs that George Cooper sent and received  e-mails.

It is impossible for a DEAD man to send and receive e-mails, buy vacation packages, and have active credit cards listed in his name. A Dead man can not make posts on rip off reports, it is IMPOSSIBLE.

Dead people do not have computers and dead people can not use the internet.

Dead people do not shop, travel, eat or pay bills.

Dead people only stay dead.

So Jeffrey Hirschkorn has no problem stealing the identity of his DEAD GRANDPA, how shameful is that?

I have heard Jeffrey say he was George Cooper on the phone many times, along with many other names.

Where I come from, you don't disrespect the dead, and Jeffrey Hirschkorn has crossed a line that none of us are willing to cross.

I read in one post that Jeffrey has written worthless checks on his dead mother Iris bank account, how shameful!  The check was posted on-line in a rip off report with her name on it. I was also told that George Cooper has a paypal account, how can a dead man have a paypal account? He can not.

I've been told that the Orlando Sentinel was being delivered daily to a DEAD Iris Hirschkorn at Jeffrey's home for the past 8 months even though she died long before Jeffrey moved into the house on Northwestern Avenue.

What a SCUM BAG!.

I've also been told that Jeffrey had his Bright House cable turned on under the name of a Jacob Goldstein, a supposed lawyer who defended Jeffrey Hirschkorn in Rip Off Posts. 

Jeffrey Hirschkorn has tried to impersonate many people in Rip Off Reports including lawyers, travelers, landlords and Grandpas.

Jeffrey Hirschkorn is a heartless man who should rot in hell for all of his thievery.

I have worked with employees who Jeffrey refused to pay and they have lost their homes and cars because of this reckless man and Jeffrey could care less.

One more thing, Matt McKinley told me to my face that he decides who gets paid and who doesn't, while Matt McKinley, I hope you rot in hell right alongside Jeffrey Hirschkorn and enjoy your stay in the BIG HOUSE as well.

I called the state attorney's office in Talahassee and they told me that this investigation involves 7 different enforcement agencies some at the federal level so the end must be near for Jeffrey and his crooked partners.

It is unfortunate that Jeffrey Hirschkorn was not born 100 years ago and from the middle east, as they would have surely cut off his hands for stealing, and probably would have stoned him to death. This is exactly what Jeffrey Hirschkorn deserves.

Talking about getting STONED TO DEATH< Matt and Edgar's daily routine was leaving the office and getting STONED, how ironic?

Anyone who thinks Jeffrey Hirschkorn and his partners are getting away with this is a fool, mark my words Jeffrey Hirschkorn will be a very old man by the time he gets out of prison.

We are relentless and we will follow Jeffrey everywhere he goes and works until he is finally locked up and doing the freak thing with Bubba in the Big House.

Jeffrey Hirschkorn is a pathetic excuse for a man and is a MORON.

It's almost over, Jeff can run but he can no longer hide.

Special thanks to Robert Ross, Jeffrey Hirschkorn's former landlord, thanks for the info! You are our hero!

Mr Poirier Should Sue For Defamation

AUTHOR: Broke Ex Employee - (United States of America)

Isn't all the proof in here for this guy to sue Jeffrey Hirschkorn?

All the truth has come out and it looks like this guy was right all along.

I suggest all of the former employees call the Altamonte Police and let them know all.

Jeffrey and Matt and Edgar, all 3 of you finally will get your due.

Enjoy prison, they give out FREE LUNCHES THERE TOO!

Ex Employee is sick of the lies

AUTHOR: Broke Ex Employee - (United States of America)

George Cooper is a made up name Jeffrey Hirschkorn uses when he talks to clients.

That is just one of many names.

Do not work for this company or sell to this company or buy from this company or you will lose money, lots of money.

The owners will steal your personal information.

The owner was arrested for identity theft and the proof is in the chanel 6 news report. He lies to everyone and then blames others, never admitting guilt.

Fight back, file charges, call the police, call anyone who will listen.

Matt and Edger are just as guilty as Jeffrey is, hopefully they get charged too.

Poirier Continues to Cause Harm

AUTHOR: traveler19 - (United States of America)

When will he learn that his baseless attempts to disparage all others who refuse to do business with him are going no where but the courtroom.

Perhaps, he should take up a game of cards to occupy his time. He has a better chance in winning a hand than collecting money that he is not owed. Proof is in the pudding!

George Cooper is Jeffrey Hirschkorns Grandpa According to Jeffrey

AUTHOR: Eddie Poireir - (United States of America)

I have e-mails from someone who says they are Jeffrey Hirschkorns grandfather.

The name is George Cooper, the same person who claims they bought a package from Peabody vacations and he said he checked this company out.

I have e-mailed George Cooper and he has e-mailed me and he identified Jeffrey as his Grandson. He even offered to pay me for the worthless checks that Jeffrey Hirschkorn paid to me so there is absolutely a connection to the name George Cooper and Jeffrey Hirschkorn and Peabody Reseach and Peabody Vacations.

It appears that a few people defending Jeffrey Hirschkorn and Peabody Vacations  have  ID TRAVELER 19. Isn't that interesting....

Jeffrey Hirschkorn arrested for Forgery, Grand Theft, Identitiy Theft

AUTHOR: Eddie Poireir - (United States of America)

Anyone who defends Jeffrey Hirschkorn is clueless. Jeffrey was finally arrested on January the 15th for using a customer credit card to pay to have his car fixed at a loacl Goodyear Store Flroida. He was charged with Grand Theft, Identity Theft anc fraudulent use of a credit card. This man also wrote me 2 worthless checks for over $10,000. He has lied to me dozens of times and he lies for fun. I have met this man and I have seen where he works and lives, I have sat in his office as employees called the police becasue they hadn't been paid. Jeff has paid 2 bills of mine and I was told by the person he paid that a STOLEN CREDIT CARD was used. Also, Jeffrey Hirschkorn was arrested on Decemner the 15th on an outstanding warrant for passing a worthless check in Orange County Florida. Under no circumtances should you trust this man  or anyone who works or is asscouated with Peobody Vacations or Divine Vacations. If you have paid Peobody Vacations for a vacation and have not traveled yet, call the fullfillment company immediately and calls to the better business bureau will do no good. Call your bank IMMEDIATELY as they will NEVER , EVER credit you the money back.

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is

AUTHOR: Steve - (United Kingdom)

Just received a phone call from someone claiming to be David Robbins from Peabody Vacations. Was passed onto someone I thought they called themselves Chris, they could have said Hirch I suppose, they did say it was their company. The Line was bad, I'm in the UK.

It smelled like a scam, they hung up as soon as they realised I wasn't giving out my card details.

No legitimate company anywhere in the world would expect a prospective customer to give up their credit card info on a cold call.

I thought they were just piggy back riding on a Legit website. How can this site still be running if it's not legit?

Vacation Traveler Comments on Company

AUTHOR: traveler19 - (United States of America)

January 8, 2010


Re: Jeffrey Hirschkorn


To answer the critics, Jeffrey Hirschkorn is not a convicted felon. Various attempts to attack his character is just amazing. Everyone is entitled to pursue an American Dream. I stronlgy urge you to review his company's web site and licensing, because Peabody Vacations LLC is more than a destination site. It actually brings families together for a joyous holiday.

For those who try and smear him, shame on you.  Use your time more wisely and do something constructive.

Be Careful!!!

AUTHOR: rdbman - (USA)

I bought a vacation package over the phone from Peabody. Should have known better. After contacting the hotel they said would be on the itinerary and finding they had never heard of Peabody I then immediately called back to Peabody at the number they provided. It was a non-working #. Then I called the # listed on my debit card transaction and got Jeffrey Hirschkorn (id'd himself as "Hirsch" over the phone). He assured me he would process a refund that day and it would be in my account two days later. That was 11/18/09. I have called repeatedly and received assurances the funds would be redeposited in my account. It is now 12/02/2009 and I have been absolutely assured my money would be returned no later than 9AM tomorrow. I am not holding my breath but will pleased to write a followup IF I am refunded. I will leave no stone unturned to prevent others from being scammed if I do not receive my refund as promised. $498 is a lot of money to lose.

Peabody Vacations Offers Great Packages

AUTHOR: George Cooper - (United States of America)

I have purchased a vacation package from Peabody Vacations and it is great. Jeffrey handled the verification of the sale and did a professional job. People who write negative comments about him and his company should be admonished for doing such. I welcome responses to this! Before I purchased a $498 package, I checked out the company with the State of Florida to make sure that his Seller of Travel was legitimate. And, not only was it, but it is blemish free. I cannot wait to travel!
