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

Please be on the look out for a scam artist named Rick Holliday. He claims to be related to Doic Holliday, the famous gunman from the old west. Rick took advantage our my partners and I , after scamming more than 50,000 by lying, cheating, and demanding money through threats.  Rick also claimed he was a part of the Russian Jewish MOB, and threatened everyone with harm if money was not paid.

 The man is a psychopath, and is dangerous. He has left a long line of victims, including his ex wife Arydne Lindsey, who says Rick abused her and abandoned his first born son.  Rick is not to be trusted, and is a glib talker, who has conned people from Woodland Hills, to Paso Robles.

 Todd Sessa, who we spoke to, says Rick ripped him and his brother off for many thousands. Rick is currently scamming a woman named Sherri Payne, who has ill health.

 A woman named Kinda just told us Rick is a psychopath, and her and her boyfriend allege that Rick tried to steal her business.

 Rick is a low level con man currently living in downtown Paso Robles. Avoid him at all costs. If approached, please call the police.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Looks like Rick Holliday was arrested and is facing felonies.

AUTHOR: Danno1 - (USA)


Thanks to Brian and others for the alert. Rick and his partner David Nelson burned me for 11,000.

Thank God for the police busting Rick and now the DA is going to send him to prison for a long time.

Case number 17F-04074 for Rick could earn him a two year stint in jail.

Why is Rick always either being arrested or being chased out of town for his scams?

Notice how he blames others and never takes responsibility for his crimes? Now he blames his latest accuser Brian of anaimal cruelty

Rick attacks anyone who calls him out. Then he goes on to prey on elderly and women.

Proof Rick Holiday is being prosecuted for felonies!

AUTHOR: Brian - (USA)

My name is Brian. I will not use my last name but I lived with and worked wity Rick Holliday for years. He is a criminal in every regard.

This is a link to show he is being prosecuted by the District Attorney of San Luis Obispo County California.

His upcoming court dates are Octobert 31st and Nov 2nd. I have a file on Rick that is evidence of many more crimes he has committed, but first take a look for yourself and see that Rick has been charged and is set to go to trial for his criminal behavior.

Rock falsely accused me of using meth and being cruel to animals because I am a witness against him in many of his criminal ventures. There will be other victims going to the SLO DA next week and if anyone has an email on Tomas or Linda, I want to convince them to also contact the DA and tell them what they witnessed with Rick. Rick is lying about Tomas and Linda and he also wrote some lies about Joseph Kerr. Rick ended up living with Lori Kerr and stealing all of her money and now she is basically homeless. Rick is a criminal and a liar.

What they say about Rick the Snake is true

AUTHOR: LB - (United States)

Rick, this is Linda. You are a scam artist who tried to get me to let you move in.

You did take full advantage of Thom Gianetto for over 50,000..I spoke to him.

You tried to get me to sign up for a save your home scam and I am glad I did not do it, since you conned Thom Gianetto and his partners to sign over their deeds.

You also convinced my dear friend Sherry to sell her house and you also burned one of her relatives in Floridia.

I just googled you and see you were recently arrested for a felony, and had a failure to appear in November of last year.

If you mention me once more, I will get a restraining order against ypu and I will also speak to Distrcit Attorney Dan Dow about you and your many victims. 

Thomas and I are just fine and he is a friend. Just because you have been arrested and face serious charges is no reason to pick on Thomas.I see you are also in a fight with your former business partner Brian.

I will be alerting Thomas to your tirade today. I doubt he will respond, since he thinks you are a waste of time.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Rick Holliday scammer and thief

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Rick Holliday was issued a 40,000 bench warrant for failure to appear on Nov 1th 2016 from SLO county court in Central California. 

Rick Holliday is a clever theif who has spent his life stealing and scamming people.

When caught red handed Rick Holliday will blame others  Rick is wanted by police with outstanding warrants and is known as a congenital liar, and a thief who will use his con artist skills to talk people out of money. This man is bad news and is to be avoided. He is a criminal and has engaged in all sorts of criminal activity. He once did an 8 month stint in LA county Jail.

He ripped of an art gallery for over 50,000 dollars, has also stolen tools, jewlery etc, and once again, has had more legal trouble after being arrested for illegally livng in a house when the owners were away and selling their possessions.

Take a look at his other activities and be wary of Hollday Development, his company. Rick likes in Grover Beach with a woman named Lori Kerr and she is unaware of his activities.But the Morro Bay Police are well aware and Rick Holliday is a wanted man who needs to be brought to justice.

#5 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Check the facts, not the fiction!

AUTHOR: Rick - (USA)

My name is Rick Holliday and the following information is provided to all parties that have any interest in the report written here. The person who wrote the report is Thomas Schoenberger. Thomas introduced me to three men named Tom, Dan and Don, owners of Edenhurst Gallery.

I worked for them and was able to help them get their art back from a man named Yosi Dena. During the time I worked for them Thomas Schoenberger was demanding money from them as he felt he was owed money for the services I was providing. When Thomas was cut off from any further funds from Tom, Dan and Don he became irate and started posting negetive comments about me.

Let's take a look at the report and I will rebutt each allegation as it is written in Thomas Schoenberger's report as follows;

1. Thomas states that I am a scam artist. Answer: I have never been questioned, arrested etc. for any type of "scam" and the police have never contacted me or questioned me regarding any monies I have "scammed" from anyone, period!

2. He claims to be related to Doic Holliday. Answer: Well first off Thomas can't spell and yes, I am related to Doc Holliday.

3. Thomas Schoenberger claims I scammed $50,000K from him and his partners. Answer: First off Thomas Schoenberger was never a "partner" of Tom, Dan and Don from Edenhurst Gallery and it was Tom, Dan and Don who decided that they were being scammed by Thomas Schoenberger and cut him off. Please call them (their listed in Palm Springs) under Edenhurst Gallery.

4. Thomas says I'm a member of Russian mob. Answer: I am not a member of any mob, gang etc. and this only makes for more B.S. from Thomas Schoenberger.

5. Thomas states that I have left a long list of victims including my ex-wife, Ardyne Lindsey and that I abused her and abandoned my son. Answer: First off Ardyne and I were never married, another lie from Thomas Schoenberger and my son was not abandoned. In fact I spent almost 15 years in and out of court to make sure I had visitation as my ex-girlfriend keep trying to keep me from him.

6. Thomas states that Todd Sessa and his brother were ripped off by me for thousands of dollars. Answer: Todd Sessa lives in Los Osos, CA as does his brother, Mark. Todd Sessa and I were in business together and still remain good friends to this day. Thomas Schoenberger put a fake Facebook account in Todd's name. After Todd found out about it he severed all ties with Thomas Schoenberger.

7. Thomas states that I scammed a woman named Sherri Payne. Answer: First off the spelling is Sherry Payne and Sherry and I were together for aprox. 4 years. Sherry is a hair dresser in Morro Bay and workes for an organic company doing MLM with their products. Sherry is an amazing woman and she was never scammed by me, in fact I helped her with forclosure and her organics business, making healthy cool. You can find her on Facebook.

8. Thomas states that a woman named "Kinda"and her "boyfriend" were scammed by me. Answer: This is a good one. Thomas Schoenber was dating a woman named Linda and I introduced them to GOOGLE. Linda Barret (spelling?) is an amazing baker and helped with Chia seed inovations in baking etc. Thomas ripped her and her brother off for lots of money etc. They live in Paso Robles, CA. Linda and her brother had to get the police involved as Thomas refused to leave their home. Thomas is a known Drunk and his driving record will prove it, DUI after DUI!

Thomas Schoenberger has scammed so many people in Northern California and you can find this out with a Google search of him. Not one thing Thomas Schoenberger has stated in his ripoff report is true or ever happened. He is a pathalogical liar and should be avoided at all cost.
