That's interesting as hell. I wonder if it is associated with this or some other scam he was involved in. I remember a lot of people pissed off and blustering, but I don't recall anyone saying they had actually successfully gotten charges filed.

 

Since it looks like there was some sort of restitution involved, I'm curious as to what it was for, as I doubt anyone here got anything out of him after the fact (we'd have heard about it by now).

 

Is it possible PayPal filed the charges?

Paypal is about as helpful as an asshole on my elbow so I wouldn't bet on it ;)

So if I'm reading everything correctly at the link provided, Lonnie is on 3 years probation, not allowed to possess a firearm, and his current salary is being garnished 10% each month towards a total restitution amount of $50,000!

 

The payments are going to a Federated Mutual Insurance Company.

 

Hmm.... if you look at the types of things they insure, I wonder if ol' Lonnie got busted for selling parts from the auto dealership for which he worked, as well as defrauding his customers aka victims via Amazon, eBay, etc...

I think it might be the reissues scam. But you could be right about him ripping off that auto dealership. I found this:

A conversation about a robbery and a car dealership in Blytheville. Someone outs LONNIE HOLDAWAY:

This was a real robbery, people we need to wake up, they had someone that used a crowbar to gain entry, they used a cutting torch to cut open a large safe, if a employee had walked in they could of got bably hurt or killed. We need to find out who this is, it doesn't matter what you think about carlock, the saftey of our community is at stake and it could be you or your business next. I for a fact know the employees will be investigated, so if it was a inside job they will find out very soon.

go lonnie holdaway. he ripped them off before & got away with it so why not again. he's always been one up on that dealership.

Wasn't me. :( Sort of difficult from Germany, though.

What a fucking mess this whole thing turned out to be. Very sad and unfortunate for any of y'all who were taken.

 

I still find it hard to believe (the evil in some people). It wasn't like Lonnie and I were good buddies or anything, but we were at least casual acquaintances through this very website, and my dealings with him (regarding CD sales and purchases) were always great.

 

I guess I'm just naive even after my 47 years on earth. Hell, if I see a spider in my house I'll catch it using a plastic cup and put it outside rather than stepping on it, and 'd just as soon starve to death than steal food from anyone else... but that's just me... and I'm cool with it.

This judgement was in 2012..............his probationary period has ended. Seems he didn't learn his lesson, as it seems Rocktrade was swindled in 2014. He probably is a meth head....or an addict of some kind....wouldn't surprise me.
