When I was released from jail on false accusations this man took me in and acted like he was going to help me get back on my feet after losing almost everything and my life as I knew it had been destroyed. He told me he was getting a $27000 check on October 27th, 2013. He took about $25000 and promised (actually said anything he had to to manipulate me to investing with him in equipment or giving him the financial assistance till he received the $27000 check) to pay me on that date October 27th 2013. When that date came he said he had to give the money to a guy named Mike @Benefactor. He said he had settled a lawsuit for 2.3 million dollars and they were going to give him his money now so as not to wait on the court. But he had to turn over his assets. I told him that money was not his to turn over. From then on the stories ensued. He promised to buy some art from a well known sculptor and kept promising payment on that until one day I told him to call and work out the details with the artist himself. He promised payment to that man and even had him remove the bronze sculptor and bring it inside to clean up and get ready for delivery. This artist paid $475 to have this done. That Monday there was no transaction and the artist got disgusted and said Tarek Kassem was the BEST he had ever seen and was concerned for me. Tarek lies very sincerely and always promises to pay up. After a year I started tracking what he said. I kept his texts and eventually started taping his phone calls. One day his son texted me and said I need to go to the District Attorney ASAP... that his dad told him he owed me nothing and that dad was going to the casino in Blackhawk gambling thousands and lying to everyone. Tarek denied that and the son does not talk to me any more. Tarek's ex-wife came outside one day and told me she was trapped in this house that they still live in and her next door neighbor said Tarek would never let her leave. The inside of that house looks like a war zone. Every door is busted into pieces and looks to be under construction. He stills owes her money too from the divorce settlement. One day she came outside their home an she told me in front of him that he has f**ked everyone he does business with. When this first started Tarek had me meet him at Starbucks and told me his son told him and the boys mother that I was one of those rare people that actually has a good heart. After he said it he even teared up a bit. It didn't mean anything because 2+ years later he is still promising to pay me tomorrow. Last week (2nd week of November 2015) I told him in a text that he is keeping me on the edge hoping something will escalate in my life to destroy me more or he wants me to come after him physically so he can get me out of his hair.
I have a title to a Hummer that he signed over and then filed for another duplicate voiding the one I have. He has given me promissory notes saying he will pay on July 7th 2014... and never did. He used that promissiry note to get me to make an investment that would get all my money paid back plus some. After that his son assaulted me and I've been on the sidelines struggling and waiting for Tarek's promises to materialize. They still have not. Last week he told me he had gotten things worked out with the IRS and UMB bank was releasing the 2.3 million dollars but he was borrowing money from his brother (he calls Wally) just to make sure I get paid. He said Wally Transferred monies Tuesday and it would take 24-48 hours for the funds to be available. Thursday he promised Friday. Friday he called and said this is not a Monday-Wednesday-Friday game nor a Tuesday-Thursday game...the funds will be available Monday. He went into some conversation saying he wasn't scared of anybody and went on to tell me he talked with Sheriff Spurlock . It sounded like he was telling me there's nothing I can do to him. Like he is untouchable. He tells me he is picking up his son (who he does not want to know about the money) and that he would call after 9:00 Friday evening. He turned off his phone and did not turn it back on til after 1:00 AM Saturday morning. I truly believe he received money and took his boys to Blackhawk to gamble. He has not called all weekend nor responded to any text.
He told me he was going to pay my back rent to my ex wife totalling $8000 now, that he would pay at least $5000 for an attorney because I helped pay for an attorney to get his son released from jail, that he would pay the $35000 commission from the art deal (and still call the artist and buy the art because he had promised to),the $46600 from the promissory note, the $15000 credit card bill and all its fees and interest totalling $18500. His words Thursday and Friday last week was he would compensate me for all my troubles.
Nobody wants to help me financially any more because he always swears the money is guaranteed. Then the guarantee date slips away again. I am homeless and a pauper now and want to talk to anyone who will listen. I need to make sure he doesn't do this to anybody else.
I want my Cashiers check from UMB, my cash back, and my 3D printer delivered like promised to the address I will provide.
