Starts working on a project, receives payments ( had a payment schedule ) then just drags things out. once i went and saw what had actually been done the previous was all lies. Has stated to other people he owes money to that he has no money because he paid me back.... obviously i wouldn't be posting this if i got my money back.
He knows his stuff and will get someone on the hook and then just drag things out or come up with excuses. Before i started to deal with him we met in person ( he is a couple hours away ) and talked about my whole project and he more than answered all my questions and had me very comfortable. This is the exact same thing that happened to another fellow that i met from another city not far away. Exact same circumstances.
Just be careful. People can walk the walk, and talk the talk and still take ya.

The project started with him in november of 2013. Since then it has been a fight to get emails, pictures or phone calls from him. Anytime i talked to him about progress something was wrong in his life and he couldn't catch up and wanted more money for parts....He was working out of a farmers garage of which he got locked out of for not paying his rent/electricity. I went to the farmer to see if i could get my stuff out and he let me see what was in the shed. Aside from a complete mess nothing was done. The block had been blasted and was laying on the floor rusting. The crankshaft was in another corner on the floor rusting. He had told me all of this stuff was together and was ready to run shortly. The block had NOTHING done to it. no pistons no head nothing.
I could not take anything with me because another customer of his did the same thing the weekend before and then james phoned the police and claimed the guy stole this stuff from his (it was his own stuff that he gave to james to work on). He is now trying to get the farmer in trouble because he let this other customer in to get his stuff. He has also told the farmer that he cant pay him the 2500$ he owes him for electricity and rent because he paid me back 13,000$ (i have only paid him less than 1/2 that and haven't received a penny back)

Maybe it doesnt sound like he is a "con artist" or "scammer" but this guy will take your money and you will not get what you had imagined from him. He just spins webs of lies and will screw you over. Im just trying to help other people from having the same happen.

He is currently being investigated by the RCMP

Thanks for letting us know about this dirtbag.

Another one is Asher Leatherdale from Prince George BC.
Yes that's his real name. He's lived in PG for years and is on facebook.
He sells items through kijiji that he doesn't really own. He took me for $80
for a chop saw. He even continued to text me afterwards. Said he was almost living in the street. I still text him from time to time to remind him he is a piece of shit.

We'll I wish I would have found this prior to me getting scammed by this peice of shit. I sent money as deposit on parts and now this son of a bitch disappeared. I am going to find him. I talked to his employer and found out where he stays and where he keeps his stuff. Time to go for a ride and pay him a visit if I can find him. RCMP will be notified as well.

Could you tell me more about Asher Leatherdale from PG? I was just given his name in relation to a dirt bike of ours that was stolen just over a week ago in PG. Curious if he lives nearby or has friends in my area. His height and weight, etc. TIA

Happy to help!
He has been in PG for years, hippy looking guy from his FB pics. I never met him face to face.
I was continuing to text him about twice a year to remind him of things. First he laughed at me and said I needed to be more careful dealing with people. Then he went into denial and called me names.
Unfortunately it sounds like he is still in PG, and still a crock of shit bags. He should be hard to find, there are not many unemployed hippy types whp play their guitar on the street and rip off honest people. Oh yeah he told me he was born and raised in PG but that doesn't mean too much. I don't imagine him moving on, these kind of lowlifes never get it together to leave their home town.
Here is his phone number, if it still works. ***-***-****
