  • A warning from Bob Jastrzebski:

    This guy is going around and ripping off Beekeepers in Michigan. He wants to buy all your honey and writes a bad check. He has written thousands of dollars in bad checks to Beekeepers.

    We had 4 bad checks from a Abraham Abdullah with US wholesale center.

    Here is another Alias or real name Abdul Aljhain

    Do not take a partial payment!!!!!! Then you can not file a complaint!!!! Even if he has written a small bad check go to your police department and file a complaint. We need to get the state police envolved and get this guy in jail.

    He wrote me a bad check for $150 which bounced. Then came over and made good on it and wanted to buy "everything you got". The next check would have bounced and I would have been stuck. That is a typical con.

    The lesson here CASH ONLY.
