AS POSTED MAY 24, 2011 ----

Barboursville, WV has been invaded by national scam artist Michael Dillon. This man sets up flimsy businesses, scams local rental property owners, entrepreneurs, and hard working clerical, sales, web design, and IT professionals out of thousands of dollars - collapses the business, and moves on to do it again in another city.

READ THE ORIGINAL STORY: http://www.friendsinbusiness.com/board1/index ...

AS OF 5/24/2011
Michael Dillon II is operating under the business name:
Capitol Networks

6433 US ROUTE 60 E
SUITE 275
BARBOURSVILLE, WV, 25504

The office is located above Curves fitness center in Barboursville and shares an entrance with a Karate studio.

It is my best guess that the employees of Capitol Networks have not been paid for their services and Mike is running the same ol' scams. Surprisingly, the Capitol Networks business IS registered with the Secretary of State(something new for Mike) but it's registered under his father's name (Mike Sr.) and a family member's address in Lesage is used.

His personal contact info is also available.

The ones getting scammed are the ones who seems they just needed a lesson that you can't get rich quick

@jdfch....."Allegedly ".... Mike is not promising people to get rich. What he is doing is promising what sounds to be a reasonable salary but never pays on time and rarely pays at all. He has jobs being paid by clients that he and his hired Techs service but that is not translating into actual on time paydays for them , or his staff, being paid. Employees are having to badger him to get paid for work performed. Money is coming in but something is very fishy about what he does with it after the fact.

It is not a get rich scheme if that is what you are thinking.$12 per hour is not making anyone rich. But, it not being paid as a faithful employee can turn someone's life upside down if it is your primary income. Mike is highly unethical and lies at every turn. No one should ever accept an offer of a job from him and expect any better ending than those whom he has messed over previously. Ask his previous landlords how much bad paper he has written them. RUN IF HE EVER TRIES TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU OR ANYONE YOU CARE ABOUT!!!

She knows.... it is all unwraveling in front of her. Sad thing is she has a child who is not in a stable environment because she wants to believe the best out of her husband. But again......she is learning quickly.

He scammed me once when I bought insurance for my rental property and then when I went to get insurance from someone else, he and his dad called me down to their office and the other insurance agent that I got a quote from was sitting there and they all laughed at me. I never did business with any of them again.

In spring 2009 . Mr Dillon ( if thats his real name) opened up a fake business on the 9th street plaza called Zoomlink which was supposed to offer internet and cel phone service. The business was 100% fake. He had a number of employees including a relative he never paid, all of the checks bounced. He took thousands from people who signed up believing he was legit. He never paid his rent either there or his apartment in the Frederick ( okay there's one good thing he did, cause the landlord's just as evil as Dillion is)

The employees waited for hours for him to show up so they could confront him, he was MIA for weeks. He finally returned with a rental truck and removed what few items remained, as the disgruntled employees took their phantom salary out in trade.( Cant say that I blame them)

He also conned local Dr. Lee Bias out of his campaign money.

His actions date back further than this, and in different states.
I heard he was picked up by the FBI in late 2009. There are a lot of people who want to seem him punished severely. He has absolutely no concern about the people he affects. Its all a game to him, and that all he cares about.

So I was a little shocked to see he is out and about, back in our region, in this 2011 posting. Guessing wildly, I can only come to a conclusion he must have struck some plea-bargaining deal with the Huntington DA or the FBI as some sort of protected informant.

He's a hard guy to miss: About 5'7" weighs about 300 lbs, short greasy spike hair, pale skin, looks to be-30's.

I can assure you that all of this is true and so very much more. He is heartles and truly the most evil human being I have ever met. I encourage victims to continue to contact the FBI and Chris Chiles. They know what he has done but would raher not deal with it. He sedtroted my life and took every cent I had. Took money from My family as well. I pray that he reign of what is nothing short of terrot is ended soon by the authorities. Time for them to do their jobs.
