I’m reporting a scam taking place in Palmyra PA. Juan Torres Guzman and Tess Torres are running a pyramid scheme borrowing money from relatives friends and total strangers to pay for their luxury lifestyle. I let Juan borrow $2000 first and then $1500 extra for an alleged business his wife was opening with the promise that he would pay me back within a month with 20% interest. He disappeared after I loaned him the money blocking me on social media and changing his phone number. I caught up with him at a strip club in Harrisburg and he gave me a sobbing story about his wife being the mastermind behind the Ponzi scheme. He also told me his wife Tess has mental problems and she had tricked him to believe that she was working on a legitimate business. He said he was going to divorce her soon. He paid me $200 in cash and I trusted him again giving him two weeks to pay me the rest but it’s been 2 months since I last heard from him. The two phone numbers he gave me are now disconnected and I found out they are online numbers not real numbers. I’ve checked with mutual friends from work since we used to work together and I discovered Juan borrowed money from 4 of them as well. Meanwhile he is posting pictures online of his lavish lifestyle traveling around and buying expensive gifts. The feds are now investigating the case. If anyone has more information about Juan Torres please contact me as soon as possible.
I want my money back
Juan Torres Guzman, Tess Torres
