James C. MontanusStole Money

R Review updated:

Mr. James Montanus Well I hired James to help me with a few computer projects and the guy just does not get it. He is a horrible communicator and a poor network systems provider. He is a very lazy incomprehensible worker and I can't see why anyone would hire this lazy s.o.b. He will bend you over backwards and nail you a new one. He sells computer equipment on the side and screws over many people. He borrows money of countless people and never pays back a red cent. He is very manipulative and wants you to feel sorry for him. He can't pay back his debts. He is a crook a swine and a swindler. He owes so many people so much money. He used to sell computer parts, now he works for a video production company. He is unethical and a poor excuse of a man. He won't pay back his debts he won't fix the problems he created, he will however take your money and run never to communicate with you again. He is a LOSER and deadbeat dad. He is why this county we live in has so many problems. All he cares about is himself not about friends and family.

    James C. Montanus is on YouTube under the title: (The Fam) and is asking people for donations so he can make videos. I don't see a problem with that but if he owes people money shouldn't he use that revenue he gets from advertising and donations to settle his debts first. By the way don't send money to this guy he has enough of other peoples money from robbing them with his South Florida Computer parts scam. Don't fall for his malicious money donation con. Don't give him a dime. Ask him in the comments section what's the deal with your computer parts business a few years ago? Why did you steal people's hard earned money and why did you sell them garbage? Why are you now taking to YouTube? Is it because you were arrested 3 times and can't find a real job?

    @TinyTimLovesGin It's clear to me that you are the one with teh problem here. You have taken this personal grudge way too far. Whatever dealings you had with Mr. Montanus nearly 10 years ago should not be aired out over the internet. If you cannot prove any of these allegations you can be sued for slander should it harm Mr.Montanus in any manner regarding his livelihood or person...clearly you haven't thought that part through well enough. Whatever dealing you may or may not have had with this man years ago should have been handled through the court system if you felt he wronged you in some manner. That is the natural and normal course of things. Instead, you choose to attack him repeatedly through many different avenues discrediting his reputation causing him personal damages along the way. If you really felt he was wrong you as a so-called reputable businessman would have taken teh proper measures to recover any damages instead of making up lies and bogus stories about the man. It's obvious that you are the only one commenting here as each comment bears your personal grievances behind them. Using a different name each time doesn't make any of this legit. You may want to rethink your angle here before you find yourself in Civil Court being sued for Defamation and Slander.

    James Montanus is not in his right mind. I think he may have taken to many opioids for him to remember why he did what he did. Yes, I agree with the above. If he is going to get rich off the advertising of these videos yes he should definitely repay those who he knowingly wronged. He should attempt to reach out to the ones he took the most money from and work his way down from there. What a horrible thing to do.

    Beware of this man. He sure puts on an innocent, fun-loving guy act. Currently, he's still making videos for YouTube, yet complains about not earning enough money. Nothing he says is adding up. If everything he says is true, then he's got to be the most unlucky person in the world. Everything is everyone else's fault. If you call him out or question his authenticity, or how real/fake his videos are, him and his friends will attack and bully you all over social media. Him and his cronies have publically shamed more than a few unfortunate fans of theirs. One can only ask what he's hiding.
    This guy has a history of gambling. He was in Las Vegas, recently, and took out a large sum. But he turned around and claimed the bank and then the casino stole his money and claimed the atm wouldn't give his money. It makes absolutely no sense. He shamed the casino publically and the bank he is with.
    Even though he's bought expensive camera equipment recently, he's whined on social media of being too broke and said he's not saved any money all year then goes and begs for money from fans via guilt and pity. Oh, but he will never admit to it. And the donations his fans have given him, he has said he isn't receiving because Youtube is keeping the donations from him. I have researched the possibility of this claim and I have yet to hear of any other complaint or instance where Youtube hold donations. Yes, Youtube takes a percentage, but does not place donations on hold, so I have to wonder what is really going on.
    He also started his own merchandise line, however he has it set up quite unusual. The products are not made or distributed by him, which is fine and normal, but he has not revealed the company name nor the website of wear his merchandise is coming from. He has just said it's a "local company" and all payments must to directly to his paypal account. It's a temporary line of products, but already there are issues in terms of "addresses gone missing". Really, now! I hope the fans do receive their products from him, otherwise this will be one more scam he can cross off his bucket list.
    It's best just to stay away from him.

    @JA Law office He knows him from a business deal 9 years ago where he bought some computer parts through someone else that purchased them through James. James sold more than $15k worth of hardware and such to another gentleman for only $3k and that gentlemen sold them to this guy. No telling if that man actually sold him the part James sold to the other man because after they parted ways he had no more dealing with that guy and never heard from him again. He may of just taken the parts he was commissioned to buy from James and replaced them with junk and instead of this guy here pursuing the other man he pursued James instead demanding a refund. Because this was a deal done out of state that had a No Return and No Refund Policy James was not obligated to return any of the $3k he earned in the sale. Clearly, this man doesn't understand how business works and when you purchase an item that is being liquidated from a business that is no longer in operation as James was no longer in that business. All parts were checked out thoroughly over a period of 4 hours and found to be in proper and good working order. This leads me to believe that this man who is hell-bent on discrediting James was ripped off by his own buyer and maybe either don't know where that man is or is too afraid to confront him. Either way, he's not going about this in the right or moral way. He had ample time to pursue a lawsuit and didn't, he may have waited too long or didn't have a case. It's not James's fault he was defrauded. If that is in fact the case at all.

    Psychopath. Get help. The psychiatric kind. Stop stalking and slandering/libeling/defaming someone who connected you, the buyer, to a seller of components you were in the market for. James was only the middle man. You’re obviously not a very wise businessman if this is how you handle with a business transaction you couldn’t make work for you. You make yourself look unstable pulling in personal attacks like this. Grow up.

    This guy is on you tube and constantly asking for donations or saying he is broke.
    He says you tube has not paid him anything which is odd being he has hundreds of members all paying 5.00 a month and tons of cash donations that he asks to direct to his paypal account and not to you tube, plus he would be paid for viewing of the hundreds of videos.
    He should also be receiving a disability check for 2, 000 a month. Sounds kinds ODD he is not being paid from you tube. If anything he is slandering you tube.
    He was recently arrested for entering a business without permission. Just because you ghost hunt does not give you the right to enter private businesses and go thru their belongings then post it on you tube to be paid at someone else expense.
    WHY is he sniffing all the time on the videos ???

He is very good a putting on the poor me pity face. He screwed over a lot of people with his computer parts scam and is just coning the system of Youtube with the donations saying whatever he wants and doing whatever he pleases. For what it's worth he is a fraud and loves to tell lies. He makes tons of money now on Youtube.

    Bottom Line James Stole money from a lot of people. Great he changed his evil ways now and is a decent guy now. But back in the day actually not too long ago from the early 2000's - probably 2017 he was not the changed man. It's good that he has finally made peace with himself. It still does not account that he was a thief and caused pain to a lot of poor people. He needs to come clean.

He has a natural gift of making people feel sorry for him and that is how he makes his living. He is nothing but a rotten no good scoundrel. Arrested a few more times that make 5-6 in total. He will be arrested again no doubt. He loves the prison life take taking it well I won't go there. Don't send this guy an money.
