To make a long story short, on December 24, 2008 I responded to an ad on Ebay Motors about a Lamborghini Replica for sale. After calling the seller, Richard F. Cosentino (aka Richard F. Sainz), my family and I drove from Los Angeles, California to Mesa, Arizona to see the car in person on January 19, 2009 and left a personal check for $1,000.00 as a deposit. This transaction took place at Mr. Cosentino's home at 9752 E. Irwin Ave., Mesa, AZ 85209 where the car was located. I then flew to Phoenix on January 26, 2009 and Mr. Cosentino picked me up at Sky Harbor International Airport and then drove me to a Wells Fargo Bank where I gave him an additional $10,000.00 Cash. On February 22, 2009 my wife and I drove to Mesa again per Mr. Cosentino's request to approve the car "ready for paint" and gave him the final payment of $10,300.00 Cash at 11:00 am, which Mr. Cosentino handed over to his wife, Stephanie, who was also present at this meeting located at his shop at 1734 E. Main St., Mesa, AZ 85203.

I have a signed contract by Richard Cosentino stating PAID IN FULL $21,300.00 and a promise of completion in 2 weeks. Mr. Cosentino never completed the car and told us one excuse after the other. Then Mr. Cosentino stopped returning our calls.

On July 8 and 9, 2009 I drove to Mesa and was able to catch Mr. Cosentino at his home. He told my wife and I that we were trespassing and if we didn't leave he was going to call the police. We stayed in Mesa another evening and later on that day confronted Mr. Cosentino at his shop. I saw the car I purchased under a tarp because I recognized the rims on the vehicle, but he said it wasn't mine and forced me to leave with a shotgun located at arms reach and said that we were never going to get anything from him and there was nothing we could do about it. $21,300.000 is not worth my life so we returned home to Los Angeles.

After speaking to an attorney, I realize I may never get any of my money back and certainly won't get a car from Mr. Cosentino, but I do not want this to happen to other hardworking, innocent people. Since then, I have seen my car for sale on Ebay, Craigslist, KitCars.com, and KitCarMagazine.com I have also spoken to several other victims that have experienced the exact same thing I have. Some other victims include Jim Haszinger (taken for $37,500.00) out of New Orleans and Doron Azoulay (taken for $33,900.00) out of Maryland. There are even more victims, including a guy from Norway. You can read about more victims if you go to www.RichardCosentino.com and/or (((Redacted)))

Richard Cosentino also has a "silent partner", John Schmutzer, out of Ohio, who is now selling Richard's cars for him because Richard has been banned from eBay. John Schmutzer's contact number is 330-506-3202. His address is 54 Walnut St., Mt. Gilead, OH 43338. Basically, Richard Cosentino (AZ driver's license number A13632571, d.o.b. 10/30/1965) is selling the same vehicle over and over and over. He is commiting not only internet fraud, but also wire fraud, interstate fraud, and I am sure he is not telling the IRS about his earnings. Mr. Cosentino claims to have a business license and dealer's license, but I have not been able to find these numbers and he would not supply me the information.

On July 27, 2009, I went to my local FBI field office in Los Angeles and talked to Duty Agent Glenn Canino and he suggested I contact the Phoenix branch and complete the IC3 form. He informed me that by myself the FBI probably wouldn't be interested, but with all the victims and the amount of money stolen in total, the FBI might be able to help us out.

If you have been a victim of Richard Cosentino you can contanct the below, we need you help...

Your time and effort is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, a VICTIM of Richard Cosentino and John Schmutzer.

~UPDATE~ on John Schmutzer out of Mesa AZ. & Ohio

AUTHOR: PI. Jack - (United States of America)

I believe that our parents are our first "higher powers", we depend on them for our spiritual needs as well as our physical protection. They were omnipotent and everything to us, where we learned about living day to day, about love and interaction with human beings. When the parents Adult friend, John P. Schmutzer raped their little boy and kills his soul, the boy now only knows shame, dishonesty, terror, doubt, distrust.

For John P. Schmutzer to rape this little boy it did more than just steal away his virginity, but trust, faith, hope, and innocence. These are things no amount of money, or time in jail can repay. Once a child has been violated it is up to the child to seek out the good to get past the terror to find never innocence again.  
John Schmutzer has now moved from Ohio to Mesa AZ. to be with his pedifile best friend/business partner Richard Cosentino who lives at 9752 E. Irwin Ave, Mesa AZ. 85209 with his school teacher/prostitute wife Stephanie Cosentino & daughter/prostitute Destiny Cosentino. This sounds like open season for John Schmutzer and Richard F. Cosentino. Now John and Richard just drive around in fake lamborghinis, trying to impress little boys. You can google John Schmutzer and/or Richard Cosentino. They are also stealing peoples money (internet scams) to finance their pleasures. John Schmutzer will get what he has coming to him.

All I can say is parents watch out for your kids down in Mesa Az.     Jack PI.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Blount falsely represents Sheriffs office

AUTHOR: Jack - (USA)

Hello, this is P.I. Jack. You may be familiar with my reports on here as I have been tracking Conman Judsun Blount for quite some time now (new report coming tonight). Here is the official website of Maricopa County Sheriffs Office arrest warrants under the names beginning with COS. ( http://www.mcso.org/include/modules/Techno_Cops/do_search.php?fn=&ln=C&z=&ag=NONE&page=120 ) If the link doesn't show up just go to mcso.org and look up arrest warrants.  You will not see Richard Cosentinos name here because Judd Blount is a liar and a conman. Do not be fooled by this Matchstick Man. He and his wifes little crime ring is certain to fall.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Conman Exposed

AUTHOR: Mr. Schmutzer - (USA)

This is John Schmutzer, Sales Director of former LLC Exotic Images. Judsun Blount is a well known conman in the LA area. You can find several reports of him on this very site. After wrecking his replica car he purchased from us Judd attempted a trade with our company to get a different model car. He still owed us backed repair fees, storage fees, and transportation fees of the other car. Instead of paying fees he attempted to blackmail our company by saying he had $100,000 of a potential customer of ours. We weren't born yesterday so we didn't fall into his trap. We believe that both him and his wife, Chantall are con artists by day and may have taken other small businesses in the past. I want to alert everyone of his other aliases. They are Judd Steele, Kelly Smith, Julie Marks, and RabbitDude13 incase he attempts to steal your hard earned money. The fact is that both Richard and myself welcome visitors and we use legal contracts before purchase. Please don't believe the lies of this coward.

Because Mr. Cosentino has been banned from ebay, now his partner John Schmutzer is using his 100% feedback on ebay to lure more victims. Then he hands over the buyers to Richard Cosentino, who supposedly will build you a car or chopper, but THEY WILL ONLY TAKE YOUR MONEY AND NEVER DELIVER A PRODUCT. These two con artists then split the funds they receive from their victims. They convinced all of us to go around ebay so as to avoid the ebay fees in order to give us a better deal. Notice how they write "strongly recommend that you call".  Please feel free to contact Jim  (LOST $37,500) at (jim@arena3d.com ) or Judd (LOST $21,300) at (JuddDrums@aol.com ) or Doron (LOST $33,900) at (premier.mechanical@yahoo.com ) with any questions. We don't want anyone else to suffer the way we have. Please Consider yourselves warned! This is not a joke and thus the reason why we have no problem listing our contact information for you to verify things!!!
As of now, October 9, 2009... Maricopa County has issued a WARRANT FOR RICHARD COSENTINO'S ARREST! This stems from Dan (LOST $23,000) at (dcrusher86@hotmail.com)  in North Dakota who sued Richard to get his money back after waiting over a year to receive a bike that was never built.  Dan won a civil judgement, but Richard has failed to pay up and has failed to even show his pathetic face in court.

We don't want anyone else to suffer the way we have!!!

AUTHOR: Judd blount - (U.S.A.)

Hey Richard (aka JACKA*S). You are cracking us up Richard. The poor lady you ripped off recently of her $1, 700 insurance check called us personally and told us how you called the police on her after she finally caught you at your shop. I see how desperate and small time you are getting... resorting to stealing from single moms on a limited income. This poor mom found out about how your really operate and now she is joining the group and is reporting you to the FBI. I guess all of our complaints are starting to work because you have been banned from ebay, including your new partner JOHN SCHUMUTZER. Anybody else out there, just go to www.ic3.gov and fill out a report. We need as many victims as possible... we are growing 12 and strong... and none of us are lying and have proof. This is what you don't have Richard. We are only taking our precious time to write the facts because we have better things to do than make up lies about you and your business dealings. This is something you are certainly not familiar with and will not help you in front of the judge. If all of the victims to date had gotten their cars and choppers this wouldn't be happening. Think of all the future money you are losing Richard. No one is going to do business with you anymore. In addition, any victims out there should also report to THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU (Richard does not have a business or dealer's license, at least not under the names he uses), and the CONSUMER PROTECTION AGENCY. If you have not already made a police report, you should do that too (in Mesa, AZ). Not that it will do you any good, but the more his name is brought up, the better according to my attorney. If you cannot affoard an attorney after blowing all you money on Richard, then at least use the suggestions listed above... they will help you even without an attorney. Hey Richard, go ahead and keep humoring us some more with all your BS... it is quite entertaining, but not very smart. I guess when you have nothing factual to say you just post smoke screens in desperation. Do you really think that any prospective buyer will read all these postings by victims and then actually buy a product from you? You need serious mental help. LOL Sincereley, the VICTIMS OF RICHARD COSENTINO & JOHN SCHMUTZER.

P.S  Please Consider yourselves warned! This is not a joke and thus the reason why we have no problem listing our contact information for you to verify things!!!

It's all true about these two guys Richard Cosentino & John Schmutzer

AUTHOR: Judd blount - (U.S.A.)

To whom it may concern,

       I am writing this e-mail for those who have been victimized by Richard Cosentino. Did you buy a Lamborghini replica or a custom chopper and never receive it or are you still waiting to get it? IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!! Richard Cosentino will prolong your wait with lies and excuses which you may believe for a while, but the end result will be the same.  RICHARD COSENTINO WILL RIP YOU OFF!!! We need your help to stop this guy from ripping off other hardworking innocent people.  You can help by going to www.RichardCosentino.com where you will find an FBI link.  Please let the FBI know of your dealings with this con artist.  He is commiting  internet fraud, wire fraud, interstate fraud and tax evasion as well.  You may never see your money or car or motorcycle, but this is one way to get him behind bars and feel some kind of closure.  Believe me, I know it hurts to be taken like a fool and end up with nothing to show for it.  Strength grows in numbers.  So lets stand together and ruin his SCAM.  We need your Help PLEASE.  Even if you were lucky enough to actually get something for your money, you know what he builds is not worth crap and may kill you in the long run.  Just read more about this guy at www.RichardCosentino.com   Thank you for your time and support.  P.S  Richard also has a partner, John Schmutzer, out of Ohio who sells Richard's cars on KitCar.com / E-Bay  & MuscleCars.net
