Sports On Canvas THIS IS A SCAM !!!! AVOID THIS PERSON AND COMPANY AT ALL COST !!!!! Internet
Our business, Frame Designs, Inc., was approached by Chris Bartholomew of Sports on Canvas and his "investor", to frame 80 of his sports canvases that he intended to sell on his website and at racing events. He told us he had been in business for over 10 years and that he sells dozens of canvases a week.
He said he was looking for a better price than what his current framer was giving him. We printed and framed 80 of his sports pictures and he had someone else pick up the canvases (which we did not know he was not picking them up) and he did not send payment with that person. He said he would drop the check in the mail. The bill was for $2002.
After a week, the check did not arrive, so I called him and his "investor" to get payment. I could only get his voice mail and he would not return my calls. I called his "investor" (Cindy Lockhart) who brought him to us initially. That is when it all started to unravel. She had already given him money to expand his business and he was supposed to use that to pay us. He didn't and he basically just disapeared. Cindy (the investor) was now out $15,000 that she put up for him and we were out $2,002 for the framing.
And since then (this began in April, 2013), we are finding one person after another who has been taken either by Chris Bartholomew (girlfriends, landlords) or by his company, Sports on Canvas (Frame Designs, Cindy Lockhart, and other investors).
Chris Bartholomew is from England and he is here on a passport. He has been here many years taking advantage of people and screwing them over.
I want him stopped! I don't want him to do this to anyone else. He is also still taking orders on his website (but of course, not delivering).
