UPDATE: JOHN DEWEY LIM IS REPORTEDLY IN KANSAS CITY NORTH AND STILL UP TO HIS RIDICULOUS TRICKS AND TRYING TO SCAM PEOPLE. BE CAUTIOUS AND AWARE. HE CHANGES HIS HAIR FREQUENTLY FROM SHORT TO LONG TRYING TO DISGUISE HIMSELF. DO NOT TRUST THIS CONVICTED FELON AND THIEF.
John Dewey Lim, convicted felon and known scammer goes by the names Jeff Kurosawa, Miyamato Sato and also Robert Lim and is pulling the same scam on innocent victims he used four years ago. He posts ads on Craigslist trying to lure in unsuspecting women into prostitution and illegal activities.
Does this guy just not learn? What’s with these arrogant criminals that think the world owes them something every time they open their mouths?
I mean really, Lim is going around saying once again he’s some heavy hitter and owns a financial firm. This time it’s Centurion Capital – who knows what it will be next week. He is so stupid, he uses a gmail address as his professional email. The one he just used to write me a stupid reply was email@example.com. So know it’s some kind of executive escort service I suppose as he really seems to like that type of thing.
Talk about a Craigslist scammer, he posted an ad that reads “Women Wanted for Corporate Companions.” Just do a search for the title and you’ll find this posted all over the United States. In particular, the one in Kansas City is again, Lim trying to get women. Guess he can’t find a legit job or woman so he resorts to scams and deceit.
Here’s how it works for Lim: He’s going around Kansas City once again, meeting women at restaurants, posing as some corporate executive in the financial world and wants them to perform a bunch of run around errands so he can test the person. He then meets again and asks them to go to stores and put aside a bunch of purchases which he says he’ll go back and buy.
Of course, since Lim doesn’t have any money he’ll actually pay out, he pulls out a big wad of bills wrapped in a $100 bill and then pretends like he’s going to pay for the soft drink he “allowed” you to order after promising real food. That never happens either.
He calls you on the phone multiple times, asks you to send him racy pics and then wants to know if you’ll do other things like, find him a place to live, drive him to a lingerie shop where he wants you to model for him. LOL – um what? What kind of executive does this crap.
So we come to his felony arrests (there are quite a few) and you’ve just got to read this:
The judge is hilarious and spot on when pegging Lim to be a bratty child who thinks he should be rewarded for bad behavior. Sure this was in 2000 but he was sentenced to 57 months of imprisonment which is almost 5 years. As soon as he got out, he started the scam again, went to federal prison in Kansas at Leavenworth for a term of 27 more months. This time is was for wire fraud for over $36,000 in restitution.
After that little prison stint, he was supposed to report to his probation officer and tell them any name or address changes, etc. Just click the document and you can read it from here.
Since Lim keeps saying he’s got mega bucks and tries to pretend he’s some sort of millionaire, he should have no trouble paying the people he scammed the money from. However, if you read the document, he only has to pay $100 a month or 7% of his monthly take home if he ever had a job. So – if he worked at McDonald’s he would have to pay around $150 a month for full time employment. That should take him forever to pay back.
In the meantime, after serving that prison time, he just jumps right back into it and starts scamming again.
If you believe you’ve seen him or encountered this scenario with Lim, you can turn him into his parole officer. Just call your local law enforcement and if they don’t do anything, call your State Troopers, FBI and the US Marshalls. They know his parole officer and will put in the report for you. Don’t let him get away – he’s not supposed to be engaging in any activity which is related to his previous crimes but he thinks he’s above the law.
So yeah, John doesn’t learn a thing. He is the very definition of crazy. He keeps trying the same thing over and over again, going to prison, banging his head against the wall to get away with the movie set millions and thinking he’ll retire in Burmuda or something.
I’ve got an idea for you.
There’s another guy who likes this type of scam and it’s Clifford Aragon. You, Cliff and Bob Rainek (another scammer dreamer) can get together, put yourselves on one of Bob’s islands down in the Florida Keys and leave the rest of us the hell alone.
You can fish for food and act like assholes all you want. Most likely the three of you out on that island will eventually self destruct and that’s fine by me.
Good luck boys with all your criminal activity as I continue to watch you and laugh and laugh at your attempts to threaten me and the others who have caught you in your lies.
