Spanish Fly Clothing / Money stealing company
My husband met these people at the bank. They asked him if he knew any investors. My husband was interested so we went over their house to see their business plan. They convinced us that they were going to hit the middle-upper class Latinos with a new clothing company, Spanish Fly Clothing.
They live in a mansion in Rancho Cucamonga. They told us that they just bought the home for 1.6 million dollars. They looked very classy and had everything you would think someone very successful would have. Their idea was also original and we believed in what they were doing. After a month of researching about them we decided to go with the promissory note. We verified that the attorney that wrote the note was also legit. We gave them ALL of savings for our first home of $60, 000. They guaranteed us that they will give us our 60k plus another 60k in one year. Our note was due on January 1, 2009. They have not paid us a penny!
We still kept in touch with them and wanted to get updates about the business. It really did seem like it was going to be a huge success. In June Colleen Ramirez asked us for more money. She asked us for 6k and she guaranteed us our 6k plus 1k if we let her borrow the money for 7 days. She kept making excuses until after the 7 days and never paid us back.
After that we knew we just got scammed. We started doing more research and hired a private investigator. We found out everything about them was a lie. They scam people as a professional. They open corporations and close them down after they scam people. They have a desist and refrain order from the state and still continue to scam people without getting punished.
We contacted her dad and he even said to get the DA involved and that she scammed her own aunt and stepmom.
Do not believe anything they say. Do not give them money. The FBI is already involved and if they don't pay us back it will just get worse legally. Do not trust them!
We have lost over 70k because of them. All hard earned money from working.
