i think court is sept 6 or 7th. i will find out but from what i heard he is pulling the usual im scared to go to jail thing and keeps getting extensions, so he will most likely come up with some bullshit story for the sept court date. also heard that he is doing charity work which he thinks will look good for the judge. there is a line around the block of victoms who are going testify of how he destroyed there lives and con them for everyhing they have. but if you know him im sure hes telling his family and others that he didnt do any thing and it is a misunderstanding. cant wait for this to hit every tv and newspaper. the elmhurst paper will be following the trial and posting info about the testimony of hte victoms. saty tuned

His sister and brother (or brothers) made a lot of money in this scumbag's scam. I don't think they knew about it, but they had to know something was going on for them to get such a huge return on their money. (yes, they got their money back, plus) I'm pretty sure one brother did his books years ago at the start of this and stopped because he knew he was doing something illegal but never said or did anything about it. Just think if he or another family member did say something to him, how many people wouldn't of been screwed out of their hard-earned life's savings. The greed of some people sickens me. It makes you wonder what kind of upbringing he had. His family actually thinks the investors were greedy, to think they can get a big return on their money in a short period of time. How fucked up is that kind of thinking. They seem to forget about the return they got. So sorry too all he screwed. I feel for you all.

His son should of went away for him. I remember his dad telling people how enbarassed he was because his son takes it in the culo. He would of loved it. On the other hand the only way i will get my money back is if i marry his daughter, and shes no prize either. His wife is no better than him, she new everything that was going on and played the same card. Teliing people everything will be ok and come on in and meet the family, like that would calm the situation. She should be ashamed, on top of it she was a kindergarden teacher. Susan please leave us a message on here if your getting bored that matt is gone. 8 more years is a long time, call me i wont tell anyone.

I would stay away from that CL Matt Scott. It could possibly be him or a family member. Let me tell you from personal experience, I wouldn't trust anyone in his family including his inlaws (they are just as bad). Using people for their own personal gain for any reason, is what they do best. I'm surprised that no one filed a lawsuit against his wife and her being able to keep the house, considering she totally remodeled her whole house probably with everybody else's money. I remember hearing how she got everything finished just the way she wanted it and how beautiful it looks just before the evil scumbag got caught.

trying to sell something on craigslist, and got this from a Mattew Scott (3 different email addresses during the conversation)

Thank you for getting back to me. Can you assure me that it's in good condition and that i will not be disappointed with it. i will love to buy this item.i want to be the best offer by adding $100 to your money then keep other offers off,where i am i don't have access to my bank account and i have access to my paypal account.I insisted on paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online as i don't have internet banking, but i can pay from my paypal account, as i have my bank account attached to it, i will need you to give me your paypal email address so i can make the payment asap for the item and if you don't have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to http://www.paypal.com and get it set up , after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with paypal so as to put the money through. I have a pick up agent that will come and pick the item up after i have made the payment. Get back to me in time.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
