Terry Cattermole / This guy is a scam artist

1 United States Review updated:

This guy is a total snake!!! Stay far far away from this guy! According to various complaints online, he works in Merchant services (credit card processing) as a "partner" for a company that has various names, he cant keep it straight. Several of his clients have complained that he has "sold" services to them but requires an up front deposit that he has basically ran away with and never offered any services or paid them for charges ran through his credit card machines that he sells them. This guy should be behind bars!

I sold a '99 BMW 528i to him back in December 2009 that was listed on ksl.com . The sale price was $4, 995. He had what looked like legitimate contract paperwork all ready to go. I proof read it and made some minor changes, but was overall happy with the contract. He is a very good talker and seemed like a nice and honest fellow. (Careful he is a schmoozer!!!) He was to put $300 down and pay $300 a month and pay me off in March 2010. Here is when I knew I had been screwed - the original $300 down payment was a check drawn on an account that was closed and purged from Chase Bank's system over a year ago. He failed to make any payments on time. I came to find out that he turned around less than 2 weeks after I delivered the car and had already "sold" the car to a 3rd party buyer for $3200 cash! (The 3rd party buyer found my phone number on one of the service receipts in the car)

I tried to call Terry but he didn't answer his phone and his voicemail was full on the phone number he gave me for about a month. I had called various law enforcement agencies and they told me it was a "civil case" due to there being a contract in place. Wow! Talk about being between a rock and a hard place!! I soon found the right authorities, however, which was the DMV Enforcement Division. I talked to a Sargeant at the DMV and came to find out that there were several other cases pending against Terry Cattermole. Anyway, long story short, the 3rd party is now out the $3200 for not doing his homework and making sure that Terry was actually the bonafide owner of the car. And, luckily I got my car back and was able to sell it to a cash buyer. This guy is commiting a felony called "Equity Skimming", which has been illegal in Utah since 1991, according to the DMV. But in my opinion, it is a white collar version of Grand Theft Auto. If the 3rd party hadn't found my phone number in the car, we never would have talked and I may have been forced to go through months of legal crap, only to get a "judgement" against this snake that he probably never would have paid! Steer clear of this guy whether you are a company dealing with him for credit card merchant services or on personal business matters. He is a "talker", and a good one at that, but every promise he makes never comes to fruition and he thinks he can talk his way out of any situation.

    I know where he is currently living. He sells furniture out of his house in Sandy.
