I hope people can find this and get use out of it before someone else gets taken advantage of..

 

This guy seems to be promising people a job, and in my knowledge of the issues, he wanted a person to use THEIR vehicle and THEIR gas -- drive him to Florence, Alabama -- then from Chelsea to Auburn, back to Chelsea -- then from Sylacauga to Tuscaloosa, and again from Sylacauga to Tuscaloosa.  The end, and where the buck stopped was when Gary asked to be taken to Mobile, Alabama, asked that gas and room be paid for by the so-called "employee" with Gary, and when refused..Gary claimed that he lost money by not being able to get to Mobile by himself and do the jobs, and supposedly now he can't pay the hourly wage nor the remaining gas that was used prior to Mobile's trip.

Funny thing, Gary sent text messages the morning of the Mobile trip, after he received word that he no longer had an employee -- that he was headed out and the person should contact him Monday for timesheet.

On top of this, Gary bragged about being able to steal someone's identity -- named the people, told how much he could steal, and told what he knew about them their finances. He also tried to negotiate with someone to sell painkillers for money, and pawned numerous items during the week of "work"

 

Gary is searching for some "assistant/secretary" that he claims he needs...and says he'll pay $26/hour, but knowing his track record...this would NOT be a wise move.
