    I believe they monitor this site. Some of the other people who have complained about these guys have indicated that the ### pulling this scam use to operate as The Repo Center. I have been in contact with Erick and I have warned him that I would post all info I have on him and his buddies if he didn't contact me with a solution. Since he doesn't think I am serious here are a few facts.

    Samuel David Paniagua-AKA Brian, AKA Eric or whomever they claimed to be when you talked to them.
    DOB: 04-17-83
    Cuttlerbay Fl. which is just outside of Miami, little town that just changed its name.
    [protected]: He will pick up but responds to text messages more often than he answers.
    [protected]: His personal cell phone which he doesn't know I have and Ive never called him on it.

    To the real people that have been ripped off by these guys.
    I wouldn't pay too much attention to the last two posters, (fliasian and birghtstarz) which I'm pretty sure he meant to type brightstarz. The posts look amazingly close to e-mails I have received from Samuel.
    Sam I know you read these posts. Learn how to spell. Dumb ###. You gave yourself away with your little "lol" at the beginning of the post.
    Plus your grammar is terrible. Go back to school and get a real job. By the way the info above is also going on the board for "The Repo Center". Sounds like some of the people you ripped off on that site live in Florida and might like to know where you really are.

    Just got scammed as well - it was the lovely black and gold Suzuki on the website. All the phone numbers by scammedjune2009 are the same numbers that I've been tracking these guys as well. I can't believe that the website can stay up to trawl for victims.

    I'm proceeding to call Officer Garret.

    The name used on the bank account was Kevin Fauchux.
    The Wachovia branch used was 30 Central Square, Santa Rosa Beach 32459. I'll give the bank routing and account numbers to Officer Garret.
    I was told that the driver dropping off my bike was Aaron, and I actually talked to him - Phone: [protected]. The [protected] listed on the website is actually a cell phone and is now discontinued.

    The two scammers you are looking for are as follows:

    Samuel David Paniagua (DOB: 4/17/84) and Freddie Rodriguez (DOB: 11/27/83)

    The white guy is Freddie and the other is Samuel. These are the people who have been scamming everyone through Flashmotorcycles.com, Therepocenter.net, and Godfathermotors.com. Do not allow yourself to be scammed by these two!

    I recently checked and Godfathermotors.com has been abandoned. We're all going to have to be on the look out for their new site. I'm just surprised the police haven't caught up to these two yet. Their time is running out though and soon enough they'll be sharing a nice cell with Bubba and his ball busting skin head friends.

    Since our dear friend Samuel wants to post other peoples criminal information all over the internet I think it's time to post some of his criminal information all of the internet too. All of the information below was obtained by a public records search for misdemeanor and felony cases using the name Samuel David Paniagua or by searching the case numbers I've provided below.

    You can access this search database by going to: http://www2.miami-dadeclerk.com/CJIS/CaseSearch.aspx

    State Case No.: 13-2009-CF-[protected]-XX
    Name: PANIAGUA, SAMUEL DAVID
    Date of Birth: 04/17/1984
    Date Filed: 01/23/2009
    Date Closed:
    Warrant Type: Active Warrant
    Charges: 1 GRAND THEFT 3RD DEG FELONY
    2 ORGANIZED FRD/0-20K FELONY

    Closed Cases:

    F-[protected] COCAINE/POSSESSION
    F-[protected] CONT SUB/SELL/DEL
    F-[protected] FLEE/ELUDE PO
    F-[protected] CONT SUBS/POSS

    According to my friend in law enforcement he also has a conviction for possession of card scanning devices and identity theft. Sounds to me like when this guy is finally caught his ### is going into the fryer for good. Let's hope so.

    Sammy must be a real mental giant. He can't put 2 words together without making a spelling error or a grammar error. Go to school idiot.
    Forgot, he will be getting his schooling from his buddies in jail. Hopefully soon.
    He is so used to passing himself off as someone else that he actually thinks we wouldn't recognize him on some of these posts.

    We JUST got scammed by these guys as well. I wish I could say it was for as little as 5000 but it was $11000. It was for two wave runners, they said we would get them in 5 - 10 days but, of course, we never did and, of course, they dont answer any calls, texts or faxes. What goes around, comes around. They will get their pay back. It sounds like there are ALOT of angry people out there. Hope it was worth it to them. We have filed complaints, will contact the officer on the case, are going to the FBI, ebay, pay pal and everywhere else we can to get the word out.

    Well it's quite obvious that Samuel didn't write the messages left by "jgixer" as the spelling is too correct. That doesn't mean however that one of his lackey's didn't write it. I'm willing to bet you that since everyone knows here that Samuel has the spelling ability of a two year old with down syndrome that he told Freddie what to write and post multiple times to get the heat off of their backs.

    First I love the choice of name. It's obvious by the name "jgixer" you're refering to a motorcycle. It's also funny how you're posting pictures of someone claiming they were caught. Alright I'll give you the benefit of doubt and wait to see if you post something tangiable like an active log showing this man's arrest in connection with this. I don't think you will, but that's ok. I also love how you claimed this guy was arrested in Destin, FL, but somehow you already got your money back while you claim to be from KENDALL, FL!

    Nice try you piece of ### Samuel. You aren't fooling anyone by posting this crap. No one has been caught in connection to this case however the proper authorities are closing in very rapidly as well as several organizations who really want your head on a silver platter. As the previous poster put:

    TICK TOCK YOU ###!

    they just caught this dude in the us this past week with 13 websites including the infamous flymotorcycles.com in nevada and repomotorsport website as well as repocenter heres a previous scam he got ppped for in the uk before coming here

    Hartley set up 11 accounts using different names, according to an eBay spokeswoman.

    He was back in court this week after Lancashire Constabulary looked back over six years of scamming. This gave them a total figure of £141, 028.52 in ill-gotten gains. But Hartley has only £102, 206.04 to hand - he must give this to police by 31 July or face another year in jail and then pay back the same amount plus interest.

    The court set aside £927.52 for 34 victims of his scams.

    Under the rules half of the rest of the money is split between the Crown Prosecution Service, the Magistrates' Court Service and the police - Lancs plod should get around 18 per cent of the takings. ®


    here is his partner below

    A man convicted of swindling more than $259, 000 using fraudulent eBay listings and other venues was ordered to serve 52 months in federal prison and pay $252, 000 in restitution.

    Derrick Lee Swantz, 57, of Lakewood, Colorado, was convicted in January of implementing two separate fraud schemes. In one, he offered luxury automobiles for sale on eBay and Autotrader.com. He used the phone and email to communicate with would-be buyers and directed them to make payments by making wire transfers or sending cashier's checks.

    Once the payments were made, Swantz didn't deliver the vehicles. Among the autos he advertised were a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE, a 2001 Mercedes-Benz S500, a 2002 Mercedes-Benz S500, and a 1997 Infiniti Q45. The scam netted more $121, 750, according to prosecutors.

    In the other scheme, Swantz claimed he could buy used Xerox copiers for low prices and sell them at substantial profits. He'd ask would-be investors for large sums of money so he could purchase and refurbish a particular machine. Victims paid more than $17, 500, according to prosecutors.

    Swantz was indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver in October 2007. In January, a jury found him guilty of one count of mail fraud and 27 counts of wire fraud. ®

    Well bravo, you were able to post two news story's about two people who were convicted of doing the exact same crime and fraud that you're doing Samuel. You aren't fooling anyone with this nonsense. Just keep trying your hardest to make people think you aren't the one responsible for this. Your time is running out. I suggest you turn yourself in and get this all done and over with.
