Bob Rinehart and Clariss Rodriguez can now go on unemployment or welfare as their scams are not working any longer... just like the poor employees of Get Scouted... he ruined lives with that scam believe me. We are following you. It doesnt matter what state you are going to, what city you are in... you owe people so much money and you are going to jail. You messed up with the last scam... you chose the wrong people to screw with.

His days are numbered wrote:
Rhinehart is a con man from way back; he owned IBB in Newton MA where he took peoples money promising them their inventions were being developed and marketed. He uses the same old story, his contacts with the pentagon, military, etc. He also operated a company called Get Scouted where he fraudently sold shares to to investors and employees and owes thousands of dollars to these people; he was close to being caught so he closed the doors. He bounced payroll checks on the employees, took money from them for insurance coverage he never had for them, issued fraudulent promissory notes etc. He has a lot of people from employees, lawyers, investors an vendors looking for him. He has a partner in crime, Clarissa Rodgiguez who is a Harvard Graduate. She seems to be the brains behind his ventures. I cant believe they are preying on these poor people looking for a loved one... they have stooped very low this time and this is going to catch up with them. He is very slick though, he has nothing in his name at all; very hard to find him.
You are so on target -- I have no qualms admitting that I too hired the "Consulting Services" via contract of Clarissa Rodriguez and Robert Reinhart of (IBB) Idea Business Builders, Newton. They took $25,000 of my money via a contract with a guaranteed return despite gross breach of contract. I've attempted a few times to get my money back. I have an 8 inch binder of contracts, diary of activity, actions, emails and proof depicting misappropriation of company funds. Proof of fraudulence. I will be taking legal action in the near future.

Anyone know the MA laws are around pretending to be a PI? It looks like you need to be licensed by the State Police...any word or not about them going after this guy?

I heard Reinhart has been feeding off of some guy in Chelmsford and scamming his reverse mortgage money in a fake housing deal. He's been using him as his personal ATM machine.

It takes a real scumbag to do that to ur kids. He has wonderful children but he will never get to see that. And one day when karma bites him in the ass and when he realizes what he missed it will be to late.wish I could say I felt bad but I hope he gets everythin he deserves and so much more

Can anyone confirm whether or not one of daughters had surgery last year to remove a turmor from her spine? He used that one on me when I was trying to get my money back from him. Totally believed him at the time until I realized what he truly is.

Stopped It didn't Stop It!! I suspect "Stopped It" is actually Reinhart. He's still blowing through their credit on a daily basis.

Talked to a former relatative of yours. He told me you never worked for him and he wouldn't hire you to clean his toilet!! He said it's tragic that you're not in jail yet BUT he did tell me that day will come and he'd gladly stand next to me to celebrate that day!! How could you not celebrate sweet justice for someone who steals money from parents with missing children and takes advantage of the elderly!

How is that off topic? It's true!! You have been leaching off of them for years now. You use their credit like it was your own. Is that because you can't get your own credit? Is your SS# flagged by the government?? Is that why you used your kid's SS#'s??

Oink, oink.
