John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Con Man Exposed, Plot Foiled Due to My AR Blog and Website

Con Man Exposed, Plot Foiled Due to My AR Blog and Website

Randall Evan Recknagel and The German Dude, LLC swindled a close friend of mine out of her $40,000 life savings back in Jan. and I have been on his case ever since.

The internet is the information highway and in this case, the right people found the right information. About 3 weeks ago, I received a call from a Realtor in Big Bear lake, CA, who read my blog and told me where Recknagel was and that he was being evicted (once again). I then received a call from the close friend of his next potential victim who she said had fallen under his spell. Together, we worked to debunk all the lies and BS and finally convinced her husband about what was going on. Apparently, Recknagel can't get out of town fast enough. I have a network of trackers but any information about his next destination from my friends at AR would be appreciated.

This man targets vulnerable married women who are going through a mid life crisis. He makes them believe that he is a successful business man who has his money tied up in Germany, charms them with lies and false promises and showers them with the attention they crave. The reality is that he wants to set them up as a risky hard money lender in his worthless company, The German Dude, LLC. Once he has their money, he strings them along for a few months, then announces that the business has failed after he has paid for his lifestyle with their money.

John ~ This guy sounds like a real creep. I hope he is caught soon!

All of us need to be careful.  There seems to be a scam for every occasion.

Enjoy the colors of the season and be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments.

John,

Preying on those most vulnerable is despicable. I hope his next home is in jail.

Hi Roy - He will eventually make a mistake and end up where he belongs....behind bars.

Rich - He knows how to work the system and what he can get away with. That's going to change!!

Sussie - I would love to see that kind of justice served up. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy!

Hey John, just let me know if there is anything I can do to get the word out about this guy.

Nick - Re-blogging might be the key here. Also, any intel from "personal" souces would be helpful.
