I don't feel bad for anyone who is dumb enough to get scammed, robbed, whatever. Do your research on someone/something before you shell out your money, have we not learned anything as human beings? I guess we still live in ancient times in the Upper Peninsula where people don't do background checking or research. Being a con artist these days is almost a respectable career because it's so hard now. Beware of everyone, if it's too good to be true, it likely is.

With all the people "Ives The Embezzler" has scammed in the recent past, I find it absolutely incredible that nobody has taken him out to the woods somewhere and broken his kneecaps. Not that vigilante justice is the right answer, but given the breadth and depth of his scams, people must be pretty tolerant of the little weasel.

I've got an idea. Tie a rope from his tqig n berries to the top of harbor tower and push him off. If something breaks and he hits the bottom, he gets the privelage of a quick passing. Let that be the judge.

Yep the stuff in the paper is only the tip of the iceberg. If people knew of all the scams, civil suits, small claims, and people/suppliers that were just ripped off and had no recourse, just had to write it off they would be astounded that this thief is allowed anywhere.

Too bad they didn't mention all of the shoplifting that Mr. Ives has done at local home improvement stores. If I onwed a local business, I wouldnt even let him through the door. This man has stole from EVERYBODY.
