Myengagepage1/Jim Bland/BVBToday BVBtoday.com, Myengagepage1.com, Business Value Builders LLC, myengagepage2. myengagepage3,myengagepage4,myengagepage5,myengagepage6 Bilked thousand of dollars from my family and others Solomons Maryland
In August of 2013 I met Jim Bland through my nephew. Jim bland is the "Executive Director"/Owner of Business Value Builders and also My Engage Page. Myengagepage1. Jim offered my nephew and i a business opportunity into at the time was dealing with the SBDA. When the deal was offered at no time did Jim Bland state that there was any possibilty of things not working out. We bought from him what we thought at the time were territories totaling approximately 36,500.00. Months after this money was wired into his account and the retiurn was not coming and empty promises and dead end conversations with Jim Bland, I took it upon myself to contact the director of the SBA in Maryland where i was told that a business deal with Jim Bland was false. I still have 2 promissory notes dated Feb. 2015 signed from Jim Bland in which were never honored, along with checks that were mailed to me on January 30, 2015 via express mai. After cashing one chek, i received a text message from him on February 18, 2015 stating that the "Holiday did delay funds into our account and that the closing had not happened yesterday because of the snow storm and everything had been closed", he then went on in the message to state to me that he will "call me the following day to let me know when exactly to put the checks through". Months and months to follow all I received from him were excuses and stall statics as to why I couldn't cash the checks. Whether it was companies not depositing monies into his accounts, or allegedly closings that were to take place that didn't.
What i do know is that we have hundreds of text messages and email with every possible excuse along with promises that were never carried out. He even went as far as one time sending me a check with Comcast as the payee and when I called him to tell him he apologized and stated to me he had mixed up the checks and sent mine to either Verizon or Comcast, he stated he would reissue the check and never did. The checks that he took the time to pre-date and express mail to me from the Bank named as Old Line was closed on April 30, 2015 and he stated he would reissue new checks from PNC bank that will be available to be cashed immediately. This has never happened.
My family is not the only people Jim Bland took advantages of. The monies we gave to him were to be used for our daughter's college. My husband and i both served honorably in the US Marine Corps, my Husband is a disabled Vet. After he kept claiming that sending checks to me were an issue we opened an account with PNC, so all he had to do were to transfer the funds he kept promising. He would send me messages stating a deposit will be made shortly and when i check the account no deposit or he would make little deposits into the account on a sporadic basis, very inconsistent and months go by and no deposits have been made, he still owes us thousands. He sent me an email and tried to intimidate and threaten me, stating his attorney advised i not make this report due to slander and it could cost me, stating that he was simply letting me know that the "actions i take are without merit and have severe consequences as to payments to me not taking place and that I would have liability for damages by making statements that are not true or factual about someone." he also stated his attorney who is out of Baltimore is also invested in Business value Builders, however slander is when you don't state the truth about someone. All of this that i have included in this report can be validated, i have all information. I will be glad to share this with anyone. He even stated that if I write this report I will not get back the money he owes us. He tried to state that the contract was between him and my nephew however when he found out that i was the one with the money to be wired into his account he called me for 3 straight days. Every text message I have from 4/21/2014 is making promises of deposits being made and transactions being completed from businesses like Century 21, Keller Williams Reality, Aflac....If you are thinking of entering into a business transaction or deal or purchasing anything from Jim Bland..... I caution you in doing so. Do research don't be quick to react, he's lies.
On December 2, 2016 he replied to my email and stated that he would be happy to provide a schedule for me with repayments that will take place without fail. He stated that he would be meeting with his team over the weekend and that on Monday 12/4/2016 or Tuesday 12/5/2016 he would have a definitive schedule that I could count on taking place. on Thursday 12/8/2016 he stated he was still having meetings with several of his associates to make sure he will be able to have a reliable plan and payments to me should be completed in the next day or two. As of today 02/02/2017 we still have not received our money. On January 24 he asked us for a payoff of what he still owes us because he was about to make a settlement. We sent him what the payoff was and have not heard from him since. Still more stall tactics.
