CAPSOUTH is a chain of companies, whereas poor souls and investors got ripped off by master thief "Steve Lalonde" as he stole their escrow cash in the millions. He pockets all the money, pays no one and got caught by the FBI on another theft of lenders for anothe million and is Federally Indicted. He will be sentenced in December 2009. He is the owner and manger of the servicing of CAPSOUTH' s chain of companies, which is all a scam (even if it worked he will pocket all the cash) but fooled the banks and others that he has control over the cash in all these funds. The servicer to work this CAPSOUTH deals was CLOSED FIRST INC. that he owned as well and, after stealing all the cash there, leads any anything else, he filed for bancruptcy this year but only for CLOSED FIRST INC. He is another "Martin Frankel" in his mind.

He is currently hiding at

7th Floor 3101 N FEDERAL HWY, FT LAUDERDALE, FL 33306

He laughs at any Government agency because he thinks he can walk on water. However, he will go down soon--no matter what he does.

Steve Lalonde - is in JAIL... It's finally over...

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

All the bogus posts berating everyone else and boasting himself will be over for at LEAST 5 years.  Why because Steve Lalonde can NO LONGER victimize ANOTHER person for at least 5 years.  The FTC has now frozen everything and those charges are coming down while they continue the investigation.  I think we're all hoping the 5 years will turn into 10-15 years because he caused a LIFETIME of damage to hundreds and hundreds of people.  He's not even the least remorseful if you can read all the "favorable" posts which were written by him.  Blaming everyone except himself and acting like we are all liars and we were the innocent victims of a very evil and ruthless man.,0,7112163.story

So long Steve.  I hope to enjoy 2010 and hope you will too in your cell with your toilet and bunk bed and bubba!

Good riddance you scumbag.

From pompous victimizers to victims in the approaching view of the gallows

AUTHOR: white collar divison - (United States of America)

How dare--

anyone come here posting favorable crap about these lowlifes Stephen Lalonde, Amy Lalonde his wife and other co-conspirators such as Mike Petroski, Michael Ammundson, etc. The initial 5 year Federal Imprisonment of Lalonde does not change the fact for all these other co-conspiratorsthey must be held accountable as well and to the full extent of criminal and civil laws and forced to pay restitution, even if it takes the rest of their soon to be miserable lives!


All these immoral people aided and repeatedly assisted with the commission of crimes. Until the hammer came down on the master mind Stephen Lalonde this December 18, 2009, were he was handcuffed and carted away for a long prison sentence, none of these criminals showed any remorse or compassion for all the hundreds of victims. They all thought they will beat the system again! Wrongthey will all be exposed as Lalonde was only convicted of a smaller crimethere is much more to come! We will see this time who runs for the hills alwright.


Amy Lalonde now, amazingly knows nothing about her husbands live. As long new lease cars were provided to her, big houses purchased, cash was freely made available, she was 100% behind her criminal husband. After all,  she did all the accounting for the loot and ill gotten gains in their commingled schemes and scams. She had her name plastered all over corporations that were part of the scams, now she plays the victimized wife and mother. If she be a good mother, she would have prevented her family and children to get into this jam!


These criminals had no problem to send other families and their children into the street with their scams (Stolen Hope). They are the ones that started to publish lies on Rip-Off Report about lowly employees, making fun of their financial challenges in life trying to making it! Lies about everyone and trying to pull some wool over everyones eyes. There are more than twenty very powerful people out there that will make sure that justice is done and these liars and thieves will not get away!


Remember as well and be assured 100% that there is no real anonymity on the webespecially when it comes to crimes. So all e-mails fake names, etc. will only remain so when the Government does not need it or care. However, (oh boy) when they want to know the doors are wide open. So to all the fools keep on playing you will see sooner or later, how that works. Lalonde is currently cleaning the prison toilets with his tongue to attract sympathy!

What about the Crossland Clients?

AUTHOR: UUUUU - (United States of America)

I would like to know what happened to all of the innocent credit repair customers Steve ripped off? Just up and said F-it! Stop doing work on them. Just pull their payments from their account and then were going to close the company. I still receive e-mails from them til this day and am now receiving calls from the FTC. I wish I never worked for this company and feel so bad for all of the innocent people that were in the credit repair process and just got taken for $695 or more. Everyone is ragging on Amy. I think Amy was taken through all of this like everyone else. Her husbands greed for money and lack of being a good businessman ruined his life as well as hers. I knew Amy from work and she seemed to me a nice woman from the times i would speak to her and she seems to be a good mother. I feel she just got scammed like everyone else. I believe her husband deserves the time.. not her! His day will come when he has to go to the big Federal Courthouse downtown, get sentenced and shipped away. Hopefully it will change him and make him think of what hes done to thousands of innocent people.

When trying to make any point try to have one Lalonde!

AUTHOR: white collar divison - (United States of America)

We are clueless of what this Steve Lalonde is babbling about. One thing is clear by the end of this year the hammer will have come down on him. Maybe he is going for insanity defenses against the crimes he committed and all the cash he stole?

Wow-gone off the deep end!

"Stephen Lalonde" ripping off a 89 year old Nam-Vet not once but twice

AUTHOR: white collar divison - (United States of America)

Hey Lalonde!

Let us ask you a question--who did you not rip off (short list)?

-You charged for credit repair in advance--no work done

-Took downpayments on loan modification and stole them (and the house from the bank)

-Stole leads from your own sub-contractors (really employees--tax fraud scam)

-You bounced hundreds of checks

-You stole $200,000 from the digital school and bounced the tax checks

-Stole the first $250,000 in a loan, given to you in 2007  for the business but you pocketed it, Then, you stole millions thereafter, from lenders, investors, CAPSOUTH funds, the public. (What elusive investors would give a broke debt beat 20 millions you idiot that cannot even spell 1101 English words.

-Stole from CAPSOUTH Trust accounts millions (unauthorized account access)

You have the balls to write here, after 2007 you defrauded a 89 year old disabled "Nam" Veteran, "Frank K. from Parkland , Florida" for his life savings (almost one [1] million not once but twice). What does that make you??? 

You have no regard for employees, the elderly, your family, the law, America and some one else's cash. You need to be deported--you are a true p....g !!!

So long!!

Ron Schmid Ronald Schmid is the true scammer

AUTHOR: Unknown - (USA)


Public Beware of this fraud conartist. Here's the way he steals your money.

First he tells you that he has brought numerous companies public


Then he creates a fake company to legitimize his scam







He will create a name similar to the industry that he is saying he is going to try to scam you out of

Then he lies cheats steals and makes up every imaginable story possible to steal up front money from you saying it's for "a business plan, legal fees" pure bull

Then he will introduce to you a cast of characters who have no money but A LOT OF LIES.

He may bring in sam, richard, alan and then says they are all under his control and he tells them what to do

Next step

Will tell you not to talk to anyone because he has to scam you first and then scam the only one who has money there Sam to get his money. Oh yea hell tell you sam has 40 million or so ready to go at Rons discretion. All A LIE AND A CON

After that is done he will tell you he works with the biggest attorneys in town

But when he sends you to his attorney it will probably be a ups store, starbucks etc

Then when he can't steal your company he will make up stories con other people who will believe his crap get suckers to believe his story

His day is coming he's just too stupid

DONT GIVE HIM A NICKLE IF YOU SEE HIS SLIMY FACE RUN FOR THE HILLS THAT WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU HAVE EVER MADEmmer ron schmid likes to misinform all but he is the true scammer who plays by this mo
