Fake catering services

  • Monetary Loss: $1,432
A guy named Ricardo Alex Rodriguez and his mother Martha Rodriguez has been posting job offers on facebook and other social media in Mcallen, Texas. And other Rio Grande Valley cities. They hire cooks to "asist" (they do the whole event) in their parties and offer "paid training" and only a few can stay in the position. They NEVER pay the trainees and block their numbers so they don't bother them. They also hire promoters via social media and make them run adds and get comission from their contracts. They have to make the customer (in the customer's home address) sign a fake contract and pay half of said service (plus taxes). With that money the promoters have to manage how to pay ingredients, material, gas, griddles, and paychecks for everybody (cooks and promoters). They also make the promoters get customers from other cities to get money from each contract they sign (Austin where the main office is supposed to be, Also Houston, Dallas and San Antonio) .Your "commission" has to be taken away from your contracts made in your own city, because they will never send you money. When the money from the down payments runs out they force the promoters to get their paycheck by signing more and more contracts and show their face and signature to the customers being the face of the business and not the actual bosses. If the money runs out. Even with the second part of the party money and there is no way to make the events happen. They just change their phone number, block all the promoters and cooks involved and let them sink in debts and unhappy customers. Because there is no way to get an event done without money and they never intend to send you a penny. So they just start all over again with new people. It's been happening for years now and they keep getting complains from all over Texas of unpaid employees and customers who never got their money back and they never actually saw a single taco served in their parties.

The addresses they provide are these
8512 N Lamar Blvd, Austin, Tx this is supposed to be an office. It's shown in the Nametag of the owner.

220 Harbor Bend Lane Dickinson, Tx 77539 this is a "wharehouse" where they keep all their stuff.

3922 Woodbury Drive suite E Austin, TX
The address of the "main office" where they ask the promoters to send the receipts of the things they buy.

I will also post some evidence in the attached files.

I was scammed by Robert Rotruck "All Purpose Remodeling"

  • Monetary Loss: $600
This man said he would do a remodel project but he wanted half the money up front for the materials so I gave him $600.00 he promised he would be back and the job would be finished the next day & I have never seen him since...The worst part is that (for 2 weeks now) he says he has the materials & he is on his way over to finish the job...For the first 4 days I actually hung out & waited for him to show up, then I finally made a few phone calls and found out that this is what he does for a living he scams people...I should have known better, when I found out he lives in Fraser Colorado & he is doing work in Evergreen Colorado (2 hours away from Fraser) it's because no one will hire him in his area because he has scammed them all.
