“Pass the chocolate this way”

For information purposes,this is about the new flea market that opened on Jefferson Davis Hwy in Richmond,VA.
Many people have been hurt by the ppl that run the place,namely Ace, Myrna and Sandra the manager.
All you have to do is Google Ace Pollard,and you will pull up the stories. He is a professional con artist who bilks thousands of dollars out of his unsuspecting vendors,and eventually skips town with the funds.
The market was supposed to open on June first,and Ace had excuse after excuse citing that the powers that be,namely the building owner or building inspectors are the one who kept delaying the opening.
During this period of time,he and both of his helpers,rented space out to people then would not let them begin building,or in some cases,let them build,then throw them out and re-rent the booths to other unsuspecting vendors.
Many of the evicted were of Latina background,but most were simply low income folks trying to have something of thier own,no matter how small.
One lady and her husband who were evicted in such a fashion,lost thousands of dollars,and Ace Pollard kept every dime.
Another vendor paid Ace Pollard 11 grand up front for rent for the year,and was made promises that were not kept,he is losing money on a daily basis due to this,and was smart enough to seek legal help through an attorney.
A couple who had a booth there,were told by Ace Pollard that if they did not pay for thier booth for the year,they would be evicted.they were smart enough to not pay,and have since moved out.Ace Pollard rented out the space they were in,even before he spoke to them about paying up front.
Another gentleman paid 17 grand,and was then asked to pay for more time and said no.He has been threatened with eviction,but was smart enough to write a check rather than pay in cash,so he is currently safe.
One woman was verbally abused by Ace Pollard in front of me and was also threatened with eviction by the end of the month.He knew alot of us witnessed the threat,and recanted,so she is also safe,and he even actually apologised to her.She is still being harassed though.
Another vendors partner was thrown out of the building for no reason other than she was in ear shot of one of Ace Pollards tyraids,and was refused entrance to the building after that.Her partner was able to go back to the building,but was also threatened that if he did not pay for the year he would face eviction.This man had paid for three months in advance,and is also currently safe.
Ace Pollard is a manipulator and evil person,as are Myrna and Sandra.
When my husband confronted Sandra with the way she was cheating her own people,the Latinas,she shrugged her shoulders and said "So what,I don't care about them".
After Sandra made this comment,my husband was so disgusted,he asked her how could she do this to her own people,her reply..."I don't care about anything but my own booth,it's thier own fault this is happening to them".
Sandra falls into the scum category with Ace Pollard and Myrna La France.
If you want to tell your story please do so here,or write to my email at originalnzkiwi@aol.com.
I am passing stories along to the Chesterfield Police Department and also Tara at channel 12 news,and it is all done in confidence.
I will not give out any names unless you ask me to.
For anyone out there who was hurt by Ace Pollard and Myrna La France and you are not from the Richmond area,you are also very welcome here and to also send mail.
David and I will listen with open hearts and never give up on this or any of you.
My husband David and I lost $350 in owed rent,as we were only open half a month,but Ace Pollard threatened us with eviction if we did not pay for another full month just a few days before the rent would have been due had we opened on time.
We have spoken to the authorities,and we can also sue for loss of potential income,and monies spent out in order to move to a new location,which we have done.

I have been posting blogs in the Houston County Form,since that was where this thread originally began,but it is time for it all to be here,as this is a local story.
Unfortunately,the flea market is still in business,and there are more and more ppl being taken advantage of.
Ace and Myrna have been at this scam for quite some time.
I have uncovered alot of information on the two of them,and there is another vendor still there,"X",who has been very helpful indeed and has given over a ton of stuff that they uncovered.
I have been trying to keep the story in the headlines,and am still in clost touch with Tara at channel 12,who thankfully got the story on,so more ppl could be made aware of what was happening.
I will be updating in here as well as trying to stay in the Houston County forum in order to keep this thing going.
I will not give up on getting Ace and Myrna behind bars,even if it takes forever.

There are currently 4 cases against them in the civil court.
Mike Harvel has his court date the 18 th of August at 10 am.
Cecilia,Oscar,myself and Ranger Dave are back in court the 26 th at 2:30pm.
I ask anyone and everyone involved in the market to be there and show support for us all.
Even if you are no longer there,stand with us as we are fighting for you as well.

This was posted by B and J photo on another blog section.

We realized something was wrong , when you couldn,t talk to them. Sandra Called me to me the "great deal" of paying a year for half price lump sum (5000.00) or they would rent my space to someone else. They called me on thursday and wanted the money friday. The marlet had not even been open 2 weeks yet. I told them they were out of their mind. Pollard tried to justify to me the need to rent my space to the "Asians" as he said for $10,000 cause they would pay it, and he did't care if the little guy move out. Well I'n not that little, but I did move out. Just a warning : It is not a matter of if he's going to con you, it's when is it going to happen.

This is a website of the OBT flea market in Utah. It was created in the year 2005, yes, IN THE YEAR 2005! And it was operated by Ace Pollard, as you can see on the bottom of the website where he has very ®professionally® typed his address as the only way of communication. This is unbelievable, 3 years ago? How long are the authorities going to wait for this person to harm people! Please brothers and sisters! Something has to be done! If you read the Rules section, you will see it does not compare to the rules he is applying today at the Flea Market where he and his so called ®wife® have been ®working® or as many of us know -®scamming® the decent hard working people. There is one more thing to add. It seems that his main target are Hispanic people, since I could only find the privacy statement in English, but the rest is all in Spanish, and terrible written. Very unprofessional, apparently, thatís his way doing business.

For all the people who are not totally aware of this, here are some links to important information to catch up on the situation:

sugiero a los vendedores del flea Market, que pasen la voz a los otros vendedores que ignoran lo que esta sucediendo que les hagan saber en el riesgo que se encuentran. Sugiero que motiven a los otros que ya no se encuentran en el flea market y que puedan localizar, que escriban sus historias y nos las hagan llegar. Haremos lo que podamos para ayudar.
I suggest to the vendors at the flea market, that they inform the other vendors that ignore all this, of what is going on. Also that they motivate the others who have left the flea market but can locate, to write their stories and passed to us. Will do the best to help.

You guys need to wake up and realize you've been scammed and the money is spilled milk now. Concentrate on building a strong case against those people one with a coviction. Don't waste your energy being angry about your loss he will get away if you do. Just pray to GOD who will find a way for you to survive financially. You are mad at and beating up on yourselves for making a wrong decision.(maybe you saw $$$$$$) but you were sold a empty dream. Now move on get your head right and figure out how to get them put away for their crimes against vendors trying feed and eat. Concentrate and present the laws they have broken. Or get a represenyative if you are too shook up to do that. At any rate stop just thinking about how much money you lost we all know now. Make them pay by taking away their freedom.(My apology for typos & misspelled words)

Posted by me last night.

It's nice to see that "Fed Up",which I am sure is the name they meant to use,has quite an opinion and is choosing to voice it.
It really isn't nice to pick on someone who is obviously upset though MS04,even you can have a typo or two when you get pissed I would bet.
I know I do.
As for the child abuse comment,this is some info that I myself have been sitiing on,as I did not know if it were ok to release it since somebody else passed it along to me.
I now have their ok for sure,so here it is.
In 2004,Myrna was arrested in Orlando for Agrivated Child Abuse,she even served time for it.
When released,she was placed on probation,and given partial visitation only,supervised no less.
Her ex has full custody of the boy,shame he wasn't snart enough to keep him away from her permanently.
I spoke to a lady a few days ago,who said that Myrna and her boy,now a teenager,came into her shop and the boy was evil to Myrna.
He talked to her like she was dirt and showed no respect to the lady who owned the shop.
She even asked them to leave,due to his treatment of her and also of Myrna.
Just goes to show you that not only what goes around comes around Myrna,but also that the boy being around Ace,had made him a little bastard just like his fill in daddy.
Get a clue you stupid cow,you are not only screwing up your life,but now his as well.
Do him a favour,walk away from the kid and quit dicking with his mind.
Then you need to walk away from Ace and turn yourself in.
We know too much about you now,we won't stop hounding you and pushing you,just like you did to all of us.
I challenge you now Myrna,I dare you to call me.
You have my number,you did steal all the receipts and books,I am sure it was in there somewhere.
If not,write to me at my e-mail,let's exchange numbers baby,I would just loooooooooove to talk to your ass.
May as well put Sondra on the phone while your at it.
Better yet,call me and meet me.
Won't that be fun.
Just you,and me.

ACE UPDATE ALERT
He is now driving a 2008,Dark Grey Pontiac G6 GT
with temporary VA paper tags.Do not have the number in front of me.
Wrote it another bit of paper and can't find it,but when I do,I will be back on.
SONDRA was also at the mkt this afternoon.
Guess my theory of her and MYRNA off some place opening a new mkt was right on the money.
SONDRAS husband,JAIME BONILLA,was not seen for over a week,yet he put in an apperance today while SONDRA was in the office smiling,laughing and joking around with ACE.
JAIME did not go in the building however,too much of a pu**y whipped puppy would be my guess.
He stayed outside in the get away vehicle while she conducted business.
JAIME is the one who did all the frame work in the building for those of you who did not know,so he probably went with the girls to the newset location to get things going.
ACE is no longer seen with the advertising exec from jamz 92.1.
I wrote to them last week and told them that if she were truly seeing ACE,then it was possible that he was using her,and may hurt her.
I would hate to think that poor woman was roped into a mess she knew nothing about,so I made sure that she was made aware of it.
I only hope she got out unscathed.

INSIDE INFO
Ace has rented out the booths of 3 other vendors to one man,an Asian,rumour has it from Lexington NC.
This man already has 18 booths to the rear,and has now picked up roughly 16 more on the front left.
Has this poor unsuspecting man been picked out as a new patsy?
Worst part of that story,the vendors don't even know it yet.
I hope they will get a clue now and file charges.
Doubtful.
By the way,ACE may not show tomorrow.
ACE was overheard saying to SONDRA that she was not to worry as all the security ppl had copies of the keys,so they could open the doors.
Do the security ppl have a clue what sort of scumbag they are dealing with,or do they just not give a damn that ppl are getting hurt and they are contributing to it?

MS04,I do not know why you are playing both sides.
I just don't get it.
I AM determined,as far as thorough,if not for being given some information,gift wrapped no less,I would probably have nothing to say.
I could have been like all the others and simply rolled over and exposed my tender under belly,and let the sword be plunged in as deep as it would go,the problem is,I am not like that.
I have had a really rough life,been let down more times than I can count by various people,but have always managed to pull up my socks and keep on going.
I think the reason I am pushing so hard,is because in the begining,nobody else was.
Dave and I were asked to go the original meeting at Legal Aid.
Once most people were there,nobody was saying anything,they all just stood there looking at one another,so I felt compelled to speak up.
Next thing I know,I am the vendor liason,even though we had begun to pull out of the mkt.
I did not ask for this,but someone had to stand up and do something.
I will keep doing whatever I can to make ACE,MYRNA and SONDRA's lives as miserable as I can,that I promise all of you.
You should have not messed with me and mine you fools.
Never give up,never surrender.
