Is there JUSTICE for a DISABLED Senior Citizen Veteran?
I'm trying to make everyone aware of a guy who has developed a reputation for taking money from Senior Citizens (to repair their broken TV) then disappearing. My parents are his latest "customers." My dad is a disabled senior citizen veteran, and my mom has breast cancer. The Orlando Sentinel has written about this guy, Jeff Nelson with Alltech TV Repair in Eustis, FL. The articles indicate he's been scamming people for years. Unfortunately, you can't file a police report unless the dollar amount is over $5k. Small claims court costs around $200.00 to file - which happens to be around the amount he's been taking from different Seniors. Well, I try to see the best in people, so I'm "assuming" Jeff Nelson is LOST because he seems to have "mysteriously disappeared." So I've created an ENTIRE webpage DEDICATED to his search! It will be taken down once he's been found. If you'd like to see it and HELP us in the search for Jeff Nelson, please visit my website: http://www.spiritlyric.com/poem.html Feel free to share it with EVERYONE you know!! Thanks! Oh, are there comments anyone? Thanks for the support everyone. I do intend to contact others who have been victimized by this guy, if the webpage doesn't work. Yes, it's true about not being able to file a Police report unless it's over $5k. My dad physically went down to the Lake County police department last weekend. The officer placed a call to Jeff Nelson on my dad's behalf, then suggested he file in Small Claims Court. Oh DUH!! Please forgive my stupidity in the description above. I just realized this morning that it's $2k, not $5k !!! I don't know why my brain kept thinking it was $5k. Still, this guy is taking, on the average, about $200.00 from each customer. That's a lot of money for a Senior Citizen on a fixed income.

I realize this would take some work, but if he has been doing this for years, what about doing a class action suit if you can get enough victims of this crime together? There is strength in numbers... More

I'm disabled and a vet too. If I had one I would send your dad a TV. It is good you are looking out for your dad. [Bulabate most veterans especially the older generation believe in our Constitution. We don't need your pinko commie ideas. I don't think you have the guts to defend this country.]
