Victims of Cusack

AUTHOR: Sharie - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, October 17, 2021

Here is a little light reading about the grifter Luke Cusack who goes by Patrick Cusack in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. This man will rip you off!! Don't be a victim of this dynamic dou "Patrick and Dianne (Bushenlonga-York) She is from Canada. As big of a con artist as Luke Cusack formally of Tucson, Arizona.

If you are a victim of this couple please contact me at victimsofpatricklukecusack@gmail.com Visit this other ripoff report: Report #1510184 This poor couple are victims of this grifter who is trying to take over San Carlos, Son. Mexico. Buyers Beware!! Please take the time to read through all of this information!! Don't skip!! Eye opening!!! INTRODUCTION This is the story of a Conman. This document takes you inside 30 years of his fraud, deception, lies, and lifestyle to understand how he operates.

Many people have been lured in by his charm and cunning demeanor, but the hope is that sharing this story will keep you from being fooled and becoming a victim. First, he befriends you and lures you into his social circle with his up-scale, party-filled, connections-based lifestyle. You become part of his "friends list” with "special exclusive invitations” to join him personally at his club, an effective marketing technique to influence you to spend your money at his establishments.

He relishes the game of "one-upmanship”. Sometimes it is just a little victory saving a few hundred dollars over a little "misunderstanding” of what was owed and in what currency. At other times, it is hard-core cutthroat antics threatening, extorting, blackmailing "friends” out of tens of thousands of dollars with no remorse. "How sad for the need to confront a friend over such a problem, but it’s just a business dealing.” He pays just enough of his bill so that you risk losing more filing the legal suit than just walking away with your dignity bruised. He under-quotes the duration and cost on projects to secure the job. Of course, the cost overruns are unavoidable because "obviously you only want the best quality for your renovation”.

He fabricates "add ons” to reduce his liability and assumes you won’t catch or question him on why those "change orders” were actually listed as part of the original quote. He submits invoices to his Partners for work, material, and maintenance costs at double the cost he negotiates, even offering to split the difference in reverence to your "partnership”, and still pockets a handsome profit on the uplifts. He requests you pay in cash or by depositing checks into his US account, notating on the check that the payment is toward a loan or purchase of a consumer good.

His accountant has assured him this is all legal and just easier to administer. It also a clever way to evade paying both Mexican and U.S. taxes. This Conman fled the U.S. eight years ago under the weight of two Bankruptcies within 15 months – one personal, the second for his business. He owed over $8M dollars to creditors for bank loans, personal loans, credit card debt, tax liens, and products & services acquired from other small business owners struggling themselves to make ends meet. While his financial portfolio reflected over $8M dollars in liabilities, he had nearly ZERO equity in any of his luxury assets. In 2012, the banks foreclosed on two of his properties -- one a 7,239 sq ft home, the other his 5,350 sq ft 'dream home’ which sat on a majestic Tucson ridge line, "allegedly” off-limits to development.

After years of construction, the house still lacked a "Certificate of Occupancy” as it was missing a septic system. He was trying to seek out investors to raise $160K of additional capital to finish the project right up until the point the bank foreclosed. The banks also foreclosed on a $750M sport yacht and Honda Ridgeline truck. These Creditors were the "lucky ones” to at least savage some recovery off a Repo sale of the asset. He also left over $4.5M in unsecured claims in his wake when he "disappeared” in early 2013. Those Creditors did not recover one silver dime. Although Bankruptcy petitions claimed his only income was $5,800/mo.

from the sale of a business, his new alias South of the Border was that of a highly successful businessman with money to reflect it. He opened several businesses, bought a beach view home, drove expensive cars, and used his vacation time to enjoy Cruises and European travel. This document is a compilation of over a 1000 pages of newspaper articles, interviews, and filed Court documents. It walks you through three decades of this Conman building his little nightclub empire, only to watch it unravel under an incredible weight of debt and deceit.

Does the Conman use this as a learning experience? Mostly he learns simply how hone his art. It is a natural instinct to really truly want to trust people. But if something in your gut just doesn’t feel right, maybe there is a reason. By exposing his techniques, perhaps it will at least alert you to the warning signs. The final story "How to Screw Your Business Partner” tells the agonizing story of a Partner in several of the Conman’s businesses. This gentleman went out of his way to help a "friend” and seemingly took every precaution to protect himself via signed contracts, documented conversations, collateral arrangements, legal actions -- and he still got burnt by the Conman. Know the signs. Don’t let it happen to you.

DEC 2009: A Steak in the Neighborhood OPENS. 12/31/2009: Sapphire Lounge OPENS. 9/15/2010: Jason Turetzky. a Partner in both Congress Street Club LLC (CSC) & The Keys LLC agrees to a personal loan to Cusack of $25K @12% interest. The "NOTE” is secured by a 3% interest in Cusack’s equity in The Keys. The contract specifies the following repayment schedule: [DOC #179-1, EXH C] 10/15/2010 $6,312.50 11/15/2010 $6,375.00 12/15/2010 $6,437.50 1/15/2011 $6,500.00 3/1/2011: No portion of the $25K loan has been paid. Cusack requests an extension until RPM Nightclub is open, operational, and has cashflow. [DOC #182 – Main] 3/3/2011: Turetsky sends an email to Cusack confirming details of their phone conversation: "In the interest of getting the doors open at Redline, I am willing to forgo collecting the collateral providing that you abide by the terms we discussed on the phone. 1) 30 calendar days after the public opening of RPM you will proceed to pay me $5000/mo. until the $25K + interest is paid in full. 2) In the event that I do not receive payment, I will immediately exercise my right to the additional 3% of The Keys LLC shares as per our agreement. Turetzky requests response confirming receipt and acceptance. [DOC #179-2 – EXH D] 3/9/2011: Cusack responds: "Allow this email to confirm receipt, confirmation and agreement with our email regarding the $25K loaner. Your assistance at a time of need was and continues to be appreciated.” [DOC #179-2 – D] 3/3/2011: Lindy’s @ Redline Sports Grill OPENS. 3/25/2011: RPM Nightclub OPENS. 8/18/2011: Turetsky letter to Cusack summarizing their phone conversation. Cusack agrees the $25K loan is STILL delinquent and Turetzky is within his right to collect the 3% collateral. Cusack also acknowledges he owes Turetzky $7,924 from a CSC audit. Turetzky agrees to YET ANOTHER temporary loan of $8,000 to help Cusack until his shares of CSC are sold. Cusack signs this modified agreement. [DOC #179-2, EXH F] "By depositing the $8,000 check and signing below, you agree to pay $42K total, the day you close your sale of CSC LLC to Michael Johnson and Tony Kenon. This will settle all (3) debts, and I will not ask for interest for the original $25K loan. …. As you know, I have been very flexible with the original loan and monies owed, I have done my best to make a difficult situation easier.” [DOC #179-1, EXH C] 9/25/2010 $ 25,000 CSC Audit $ 7,924 (reimbursement monies owed Turetzky) 8/18/2011 $ 8,000 + $1,000 ($1K in lieu of JT not exercising 3% equity clause) TOTAL DUE $ 41,924 (12% interest on initial $25K loan WAIVED) 9/1/2011: Cusack pays back Turetzky $18K toward the Note, leaving a balance of $24K [DOC #179-1, EXH B] 9/4/2011: A Steak in the Neighborhood CLOSES. 9/27/2011: Cusack removed as Statutory Agent & membership in Congress Street Clubs, LLC (CSC, LLC). 11/17/2011: Cusack completes the sale of his interest in CSC and MY Brother’s Bar to Partners Tony Kenan & Michael Johnson for $770,000. Cusack receives $490K in cash & $55K is paid directly to a Creditor Cusack owed, with the $235K balance in promissory notes. Johnson replaces Cusack as Statutory Agent. [DOC #176 - Main] O Cusack fails to honor the 8/18/2011 signed contract and pay Turetzky back the $24K balance that was due upon the CSC sale date. FALL 2011: Cusack places his 28 yr old, live-in girlfriend, Brooke Rosander, in charge of the books for Redline/RPM. Brooke begins routinely taking the company computer home each night. Disclosure of financial information to the other Partners nearly ceases. [DOC #182 - Main] 11/23/2011: Cusack files CHAPTER 11 personal bankruptcy. O On his voluntary petition, Cusack makes NO mention of the rather large sum of cash he had just received from sale of his stake in CSC, LLC. O Cusack "inadvertently” neglects to list Turetzky on his "Schedule F” of known Creditors, even though many Creditors Cusack does list are owed far less than Turetzky. This list is registered with the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) and assures all interested parties are aware of the bankruptcy proceedings & notified of any Court hearings impacting the case. [DOC #179 - Main] 3/29/2012: Cusack files his first disclosure statement & Reorg Plan. Turetzky still NOT identified on the list of Creditors. 4/1/12 – 7/31/12: Creditors are notified by the BNC to submit their ballots voting for acceptance or rejection of Cusack’s Reorg Plan, asked to bring forth any objections, and are given notice of a hearing of Creditors set for 7/12/12. Since Cusack has left him off this list, Turetzky is not receiving any of these communications from the Court. 4/18/2012: Lindy Reilly walks out of Lindy’s @ Redline claiming irreconcilable differences. APR 2012: Turetzky makes several attempts to inspects Redline/RPM books & obtain an accurate financial picture. All attempts are met with delays, partial disclosures, & refusals to provide reports. When the Partners accused him of pocketing profits, Cusack justified his actions as reimbursement for the "100’s of 1000’s of dollars in loans he has made to the company”. When asked to provide proof of the loans, Cusack refuses to comply. [DOC #176- Main] MAY 2012: Cusack protests that Turetzky has begun overly involving himself in Redline operations which is creating problems with employees. Cusack claims other Keys LLC members ask for his help to remedy the problem via Court action. [DOC #179 - Main] 5/18/2012: Whether out of necessity or convenience, Cusack files an "Injunction Against Workplace Harassment” with the Pima Co Superior Court. Filed without Turetzky’s knowledge, the Court is presented with only one side of the case and the restraining order is granted. Turetzky is prohibited from entering the W. Wetmore properties or having any contact with Redline/RPM employees (11 named on filing) except thru lawyers, legal process, or court hearings. [DOC #179-1, EXH A & DOC #182 - Main] O Cusack’s incredulous account of this case accuses Turetzky of physically & sexually abusing several female employees. "Patrick & several women were trying to bring charges against a wealthy businessman. In order to scare the women into not testifying, [the man] hired someone to create Fake articles. It worked and the women were scared that if he could do that to Patrick & have lies splashed all over the Internet what would he be able to do to them. These woman were single young mothers. Patrick was trying to do the honorable thing for these women.” [Dianne Bushenlonga Facebook Post] 7/3/2012: A dispute arises over obligations within the 11/17/2011 CSC Sales agreement of Cusack’s shares. The parties sign a separate "Settlement Agreement & Mutual Release” to resolve claims. An additional transfer of $48K is distributed to Cusack to remove all remaining liabilities. This new "Settlement Agreement” is contingent upon the Court approving Cusack’s final Reorg Plan. [DOC #162 – EXH C] 8/9/2012: Chapter 11 Bankruptcy plan is CONFIRMED by the Court. Distributions to commence. [DOC #162] 8/29/2012: Cusack amends his "Schedule F” petition to include Jason Turetzky as an unsecure Creditor. [DOC #166] 8/28/12 & 9/9/12 & 9/24/12: Turetzky’s attorney (Ms. Bushell) sends several letters to Cusack’s counsel (Mr. Sparks) indicating intent to file a claim for repayment of the loan -or- the 3% assignment of Key’s, LLC equity Cusack committed in the original & amended "Notes”. [DOC #179, EXH B, C& F] 9/10/2012: Ms. Bushell files a petition to secure the outstanding collateralized loan with the UCC in an attempt to secure the claim. [DOC #179, EXH E] O Mr. Sparks, responds that there is NO EVIDENCE of any security instrument (ie: UCC filing) recording of the debt before 8/9/12, therefore it is "unsecure” and not subject to repayment. [DOC #179-Main] 9/25/2012: It seems the "Workplace Injunction” case was originally filed with Pima Co. Superior Court but transferred to Tucson Municipal Court. A hearing is finally scheduled to give Turetzky opportunity to protest the Order. Although the Order is left in place, the Judge modifies it to limit the "protected persons” to solely Cusack & Rosander and agrees to seal the original complaint filed by Cusack. The Court also expressly rules that the Injunction does not preclude Turetzky from an accurate accounting of financials for the business in which he has equity ownership. [DOC #179, EXH A & DOC #182–Main, DOC #182-5, EXH E] [ QUESTIONS: - By moving the case from Superior Court (Criminal) to Tucson Municipal Court (Civil) has the Court already determined there is no criminal basis for the claim? - By limiting scope of the Injunction to only include Luke and Brooke, does the Judge believe the abused women in Cusack’s story are no longer at risk and in need of protection from Turetzky? - Does the Judge view the original complaint filed by Cusack as suspicious & inflammatory and capable of inflicting harm upon Turetzky so if left open to public record and thus declared the filed sealed? ] 10/9/2012: Ms. Bushell files a breach of contract with the Court over terms of loan. [DOC #179-2, EXH F] 10/23/2012: Ms. Bushell files for a "Rule 2004” examination asking the Court to review materials to determine if Cusack’s original petition was submitted fraudulently. Request to subpoena Bank records to determine actual assets and any financial transfers Cusack’s made prior to the CHAPTER 11 filing. [DOC #170] 10/25/2012: Court grants the motion for examination and orders Debtor to appear with the records requested by Turetsky no later than 11/30/2012. [DOC #172/ #173/ #174] 11/8/2012: Mr. Sparks files Motion to QUASH the examination Order. [DOC #175] 11/13/2012: Ms. Bushell requests subpoenas for the financial records of Luke Cusack, Monte Carlo Investments, The Keys Limited, The Keys Limited dba Redline/RPM, Redline RPM, & Brooke Rosander for the time period: 1/1/2011 thru 11/1/2012. [DOC #181 - Main] 11/15/2012: Ms. Bushell requests the Court deny Cusack’s motion to Quash arguing that hidden cash & assets could significantly impact whether Creditors might have a chance at some recovery. Turetsky requests info pertinent to: any hidden payments made by Cusack (to whom), location of cash received by the Debtor from the sale of his stake in CSC, source & amount of money the Debtor claims he loaned to Redline/RPM, and the existence & extent of any other non-disclosed assets. [DOC #176 - Main] 11/20/2012: Mr. Sparks demands a protective order to immediately prevent release of the Debtor’s personal and/or business information from any party. [DOC #181] 11/24/2012: Cusack files counterattacks against Turetzky for Contempt of Court, Sanctions & attorney’s fees: Mr. Sparks argues Turetzky is violating the Court Order confirming Cusack’s Reorg Plan: - Chapter 11 entitles the Debtor protection from a Creditor’s challenge once a Plan is confirmed, - Chapter 11 prevents submission of new UCC filings to "secure” an unsecured claim in the Plan, - these actions are further harassment and protected by the current Injunction in place against Turetzky, - Turetzky was aware of the Bankruptcy via the "Settlement”, did not file a Proof of Claim prior to the Finalized Reorg Plan, and therefore, his clock has simply run out to preserve his claim. [DOC #179 - Main] 12/6/2012: Ms. Bushell responds to Cusack’s counter-attacks citing the relevance of additional discovery. "The Plan provides that unsecured creditors would receive a whopping $225 paid quarterly, pro rata, beginning 9/30/12 thru 6/30/17, for a GRAND TOTAL of $4,500 paid pro rata to an estimated $1.75M in unsecured creditors over five years. Given that Cusack received $48,000 under the [July] Agreement alone, this treatment appears to violate the best interests test of 1129(a)(7) as well as the Debtor’s disclosure obligations.” [DOC #182 - Main] 12/14/2012: Judge Marlar declares the case "a tangled web of accusations & counter-attacks”. The Judge basically rules on a Technicality. He admits the Court was in error for approving the 2004 examination after the Reorg plan was finalized on 8/9/12. The Court lost jurisdiction over challenges once the Plan was Confirmed & should not have approved exam without hearings. Court grants Debtor’s motion to Quash and Orders that the subpoenaed bank records be returned to sender unread & unopened. [DOC #184] O If it is any consolation, the Judge also denies Cusack’s motion against Turetsky for Contempt of Court, Sanctions, and attorney’s fees. 1/7/2013: Redline Sports Grill and RPM Nightclub CLOSE. 2/15/2013: In less than 15 months, Cusack files a 2nd CHAPTER 11 for The Keys Limited Co. (dba Redline). Turetzky has a 15% equity stake in this business as well. For a second time, Cusack "INADVERTENTLY” leaves Turetzky off the list of known Creditors; however, as an equity holder, Turetzky is well aware of the filing and sends a creditors claim. [EWH DOC #1 - Petition] APR 2013: PJC Investments sells the property at 6444 E. Tanque Verde Road (formerly The Solarium) to Tanque Verde Square, LLC. For $1.155M. - Had Turetzky not lost on his motion for the financial examination, Monte Carlo Investments was named on the 11/13/12 subpoena list, and this transaction quite likely would have raised flags by Turetzky’s counsel. However, it did not. 8/15/2013: CASE #2 - Chapter 11 Reorg Plan submitted to the Court. Judge rules that the disclosure statement & Reorg plan are insufficient. Cusack fails to meet deadline to resubmit. Mr. Sparks indicates he is unfamiliar with his client’s whereabouts. He suggests liquidating any assets left in a storage unit. 11/19/13: CASE #2 - the business bankruptcy is converted to Chapter 7. No distributions are made. Approx. 17 creditors lose over $500K in owed invoices for labor, loans, products & services. 4Q12 – 4Q13: Cusack files NONE of the required quarterly reports, nor pays the "whopping” $325/ quarter required by the Reorg Plan to go toward Creditors. 1/17/2014: CASE #1 – the personal bankruptcy is converted to Chapter 7 after Cusack fails to make any distributions & "disappears”. Approximately two dozen creditors are left holding the bag on $4.4M of Cusack’s debt which will never be repaid…. Not a single dime. 2/17/2014: Cusack has fled to Mexico and taken on an alter identity of Patrick L. Cusack. Despite having no money to his name (per Bankruptcy records), he renovates and opens a new restaurant & bar, buys a beach view home, drives a new SUV, showers his stream of new girlfriends with Cruises & trips to Europe. His "cash” businesses funnel money into hidden accounts through his revokable trust. Despite all this, Cusack somehow seems to freely moves between the US & Mexico. 5/5/2014: Bankruptcy CASE #2 - Terminated. 5/12/2014: Bankruptcy CASE #1 - Terminated. While seemingly taking every precaution to protect his interests -- signing contracts, documenting conversations, collateralizing loans -- Jason Turetsky was still conned. He loses $24K he had loaned in good faith to Cusack to help him through hard times, he is out legal fees to fight the Workplace Injunction and Chapter 11 motions, and his 15% equity in The Keys has collapsed under yet another Cusack business failure. In the meantime, "Patrick” has started over in new pastures with new prey in the quiet little beach-side community of San Carlos, MX.
