Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Richard Fleming committed a FELONY. It seems he tried to sell a website to a consumer again in NC and they wanted their money back and yet he disappeared again.

He bullied the client to give him a check in North Carolina. He had the man sign one of his contracts with an alias address and phone number that is not Mr. Flemings present place of business.

This is considered FRAUD, when you are using fictitious addresses and phone numbers to sell your product. A pink business card was also given with the phone number (386)589-3630 which no longer works.

The FELONY was when RICHARD FLEMING left the state of North Carolina and cashed the check on 8/13/08 in the state of Florida. He cashed it at the bank that the check was written from to make sure no stop payment was made. It is on record and a case is now being pursued for FELONY and not just FRAUD anymore.

From what the search proceeded to bring up was that Fleming was at traffic court in the Venice Beach area. There is documentation of that.

Detective Voncan has this case under investigation and is pursuing him. Apparently, he tried the same with another Client named Tony and it looks like Mr. Fleming met his match. The Feds will be involved in on this one if he tries another scam!

I haven't gotten all the full details yet but there is another case opened up through State Farm Insurance company in Florida that has Mr. Fleming falsifying a police report in NC (not known yet on what) but again to obtain money.

Also, Richard Fleming has a case in the Greensboro courts on Sept 23rd for a trial of ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. You may contact the Assistant DA at the courthouse if you need proof.

Mr. Fleming was arrested on 7/27/08 and spent time in jail. He also has a contempt charge holding on him in that case also.

I have been getting details from the law on this NC case. This information can be verified if needed.

UPDATE: He has been arrested again!

AUTHOR: Darnel K. - (United States of America)

Arrested for Felony Scheme to Defraud. His last arrest for Fraud resulted in a reduced charge to a misdemeanor and one year probation. If you have been a victim of his you need to contact the Pinellas County DA's office and let them know your story. The state of Florida needs to connect the dots and realize he is a habitual criminal that knows nothing else but how to scam and rip hard working people off. He needs to be locked up so he can't ruin peoples lives any more than he already has!

UPDATE: He has been arrested again!

AUTHOR: Darnel K. - (United States of America)

Those of you that have never received compensation for the money he took from you need to know he has been arrested again for felony fraud.

His address is listed on the report too. I would highly suggest that you all band together and contact the Pinellas County DA's office and tell your stories too. Someone needs to connect all the dots so the state will see this is a habitual criminal and lock him up for a long time!

I work from a company that has falling victim to Mr. Ric Fleming also. We hired him to do our web site. Paid him in advance and then like everyone else he comes in contact with. He runs off with the money.

I am trying to find any information about him that i can so that we can stop him from scamming someone else. The local police say that we need more information on this person. Like date of birth, driver license number, anything.

There are plenty of address on Mr. Ric but he need hard information in order to prusue him with felony charges. If anyone has inforamtion on this con-artist please help stop him.

if this is the same Ric Fleming, He has been doing this for 25 years

AUTHOR: pokey - (United States of America)

I made the horrible mistake of befriending this individual app. 25 years ago in High Point, NC. If he is the same Ric Fleming, (at that time, he was very muscular, black hair, glasses, well dressed, Phillipino, drove expensive cars), he was an "independent" insurance agent who scammed elderly people into giving him their insurance premium payments, keeping the money, and never updating their policies. When he started feeling the heat, he left town and went to Georgia where he got his BMW repossessed, and then left for Florida. I still have nightmares about seeing him.

It is catching up with him now...

AUTHOR: Mike B. - (U.S.A.)

if you just search for "Fleming" or "Fleming, Ric" on here you'll see that there are many posts about this man ripping people off. I personally have a compiled list of approximately 17 other people as well that contacted me through this website from a year ago.

Mr. Fleming is finding out that what little he has is being taken from him. God gives, and God allows it to be taken away by our actions. I've seen it happen too many times. We reap what we sow.

Ric if you read this. I forgive you. You'll have a much more fierce judge to face than any man on this earth. Repent before it's too late. Get right with God!
