Don’t Get Ripped Off By Rick Dugo!!!!!!!!!

Don’t Get Ripped Off By Rick Dugo!!!!!!!!!

THE DIRTY ARMY: ‼️❌THIS P.O.S STOLE $10,000 FROM ME !❌ ‼️And over $800,000 from many other people around the lake of the Ozarks, Chicago Area and so on… !! Please share this and put him on blast so I can also connect with the others he has scammed and save others from getting scammed. I have held this in for a year now and it’s time to speak up! RICKY DUGO [redacted phone number] Chicago. After I put my heart and soul into tattooing a St.Michaels half sleeve on him Rick pretended to be a new friend to Me and my 2 coworkers. Flashing his nice cars and taking them out on what we though was his nice yellow cigarette boat. ▪️ After he knew he had us drooling over the fake life he convinced us he had owning 7 car washes and a car wash in every trump tower. He proposed a “deal” that he does every year to make a good chunk of money he has. ▪️Long story short he said we were buying TVs at half price and selling them to someone he knows opening a chain of restaurants at full price. I normally wouldn’t fall for something like this but he has websites and lots of “proof” and just like any normal “friend” saying they want to help you, we believed him…. ▪️I gave him all the money I had… including all the money I had saved up to finally open my dream tattoo shop that was just a couple months away. He promised a 6 day turn around. Anything we put in was doubled. So I put in $10,000 cash expecting to get $20,000 in 6 days so then I would have most of the money I needed to open my new shop. (I know if it’s to good to be true then it prob is) but I thought this was a friend helping me complete my dream I had been telling him about. He also got $1,000 from my girlfriend Kasie, $9,000 from my co workers. One had to file bankruptcy and lost everything he had including his home and he has children. The other had to move back home to Ohio because he was out of money. ▪️This is all very embarrassing so please save all the “should of known better ” comments because believe me I know. There is way more details to this story than I can type. Everyone makes mistakes in life and trusting This CROOK was one of my biggest. ▪️I have hustled harder then I ever have the past year to keep myself and my dreams a float staying positive and couldn’t of got through it if it wasn’t for all of my family friends clients and fans. All of your constant love and support of myself and tattoos has what kept me going and helped me reach many goals I have set for myself to conquer this nightmare and build myself stronger from it. ▪️”Money is just money and I still have my hands and feet and I woke up this morning so it’s still a wonderful day. :) ” ▪️Please share this post so other won’t get scammed by this Piece of Sh*t. He is poison and has effected my life everyday every hour for the past year. Once again his number is [redacted phone number] feel free to blow his sh*t up. He doesn’t have Facebook because he deleted it after scamming so many people. Thank you for taking the time to read this. -Russell James He currently resides in Vernon Hills

    He conned me for 5grand in 2013 as well as my friend when we worked for him at the car wash in Mundelein. “LEGENDS CAR WASH” he told us he needed some extra cash because they were holding his money in taxes. I was 19 at the times so fell for it. My friend rico tried to get it back took him to court his parents weren’t from here dugo called ICE on them. While we were there he tried conning people for electronics and for parts to co own the car wash had the gtr back then conned my friend to get her to sign for the black Jeep Wrangler and for the red Dodge Ram was supposed to pay them off and give her some cash in the side. Friend had to get them repoed and she went to bankruptcy. He’s a big fat liar

    If you know anyone who knows this couple warn them now to walk away. This couple is dangerous. They don’t have any friends. If you think you are friends with them you are fooling yourself. You, your friends or family members are potential targets. They have no shame! They have taken even from their own family. Disgusting couple.. both are scammers! This couple lives a life based off lies. Do not trust them!!! Reach out to the email address listed in these comments if you know anyone scammed by Rick or Shannon Dugo. Let’s take these sick people down.

    Send all victims to [email protected]

    Victims please respond there with your stories and contact info and we will get in touch with you.

    I have many contacts in the US, and several have been victims of this guy, and his accomplice wife. I just happened to see this today, and it makes me sad, and mad. How can someone so dishonest and harmful be allowed to continue this garbage? The community where they live (other posts note where they are), should rise up and force them out of town, not to mention seek criminal charges. Dirt-bags deserve nothing less, or more..

    I encourage all victims of this guy/wife to speak up now, don’t let them harm others. They have no scruples or conscience. God help us all, I hear they have children.

    Criminals they are, and all they do is leave victims with lost money, bad credit, disappearing assets, damaged self worth, bankruptcy, and more.

    Anyone who supports their scams, are also criminals. From real estate, to fake business propositions, they will get you and steal from you. Stop them now!

    I can’t beleive I just read this and that I found someone this has actually happened to! I met this asshole when I was 24 yrs old and he took me to the cleaners emotionally and financially in 30 days! I am now 44 and grateful I lived thru it and had the support you had! I can’t believe someone hasn’t killed him yet or put him in jail!

    Please read this and take action if you or anyone you know is a victim of Ricky Dugo, Ricky Schulte or Ricky Masetti and email [redacted]

    Victims are coming forward every single day!! The list is growing!!

    Rick Dugo, aka Rick Schulte, aka Rick Masetti, aka Big Rick from Chicsgo and now Vernon Hills, IL is a convicted felon for theft and a lifelong con artist. He is 51 years old and has been a con artist since he was a teenager.
    He has been scamming, conning and ruining lives since the 1980’s in Illinois, Missouri, Ohio and possibly more. The path of devastation he has left is bigger than you can even imagine and continues to grow. He needs to be stopped! His ONLY way to survive financially is to deceive and commit fraud.

    Rick does NOT have a job and NEVER has. He does NOT own any car washes. He does NOT have connections to cheap appliances and electronics. He does NOT own a boat. He does NOT own a car. He does NOT own a home. He is BROKE
    He does NOT have friends or cop friends that will hurt you. He is NOT connected. He will NOT pay you back NOTHING goes in his name. He has filed bankruptcy twice.

    After over 30 years of ruining people’s lives financially and emotionally, it is now time all victims stand together and share their stories. There is strength in numbers and justice WILL prevail. This is about justice and stopping a true devil in disguise.

    Please email [redacted] and share this with everyone you know.

    Thank you for reading. God bless.

    I am looking into collecting as much victim information as possible. Thank you

  19. SmackdownjonesMay 29, 2018 at 1:31 PM

    I am also a Rick Dugo victim. I personally have consulted and talked to two more victims. It’s the same pattern and the same story he tells. I would like to reach out to you to discuss. How would I get ahold of you?

  20. DtownMay 25, 2018 at 7:37 PM

    Somebody needs to curb stomp this douchey mf and I’m sure he’ll think twice next time.

  21. DirkMay 25, 2018 at 9:13 AM

    Same ole Rick. ‘Big Rick’ has been at this game for decades. Same ole Rick. Some things never change…

  22. CHINCHILLAMay 25, 2018 at 1:10 AM

    You and all your friends are absolute idiots. It amazes me how dumb people really are. Amazing…amazing investments rarely generate more than 20% a year. Young morons thinking money requires no work. Don’t fall for dirtbags because they drive a leased car or drink a few bottles at a club. If he was rolling deep he wouldn’t need your investment. If money was that easy everyone would have it.
