Casey Ryan Ditmore - The Whole Cell
I run a wholesale electronics business (smartphones) I've been in contact with Casey Ryan Ditmore born 7/12/1984 since August 2016. I sold 2 orders of phones to him before purchasing from him on 11/21/16.
He stated he had 150 iPhone 5s's that did not power on he wanted to sell. I agreed on $30 per phone for a total of $4500. For over a month he stated he would give me a tracking number for the phones and did not. He was consistently giving me the "run around" trying to buy more time.
After I did some research on him I found out that he is known for fraud. After calling him out on it he said he was going to give me a refund several times and it never happened. He then he decided he was going to send a package via UPS (tracking number 1Z2170A3A817375060). The package arrived on 1/3/17 and contained 9 phone cases worth approximately $20.
It stated it weighed 50 lbs and actually weighed 2 lbs 8 ounces. I have pictures and video evidence. He has been known to do the same to others via these reports: http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Casey-Ditmore-Cell-Mart-Digital-Dreams/Sulfur-Springs-Texas-75482/Casey-Ditmore-Cell-Mart-Digital-Dreams-Casey-Ditmore-aka-Cell-Mart-aka-Digital-Dreams-Ship-1001639 http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Casey-Ditmore-Cell-Mart/Sulpher-Springs-Texas-75842/Casey-Ditmore-Cell-Mart-Casey-Ditmore-Cell-Mart-Digital-Dreams-Casey-Ditmore-aka-Cell-Ma-1011835 http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Cellmart/Sulpher-Springs-Texas-75842/Cellmart-Casey-Ditmore-Same-as-other-cases-here-in-ripoffreportcom-Sulpher-Springs-Texas-1021484 He also is an alcoholic and appears to be involved in other types of fraud. Here is a link to an arrest record that happened recently: https://www.scam.com/mugshots/casey-ryan-ditmore-15356619 It appears he bounces around the Austin and Dallas Texas area and is also known to be in the Jacksonville, Florida area (that's were my bogus package was shipped from).
I will not stop pursuing him until this guy pays for what he has done. I will be hiring a private investigator, contacting his family members, filing a lawsuit, etc. I'm sure some more research will turn up a lot more info on this guy. Obviously this guy is a full on crimial.
He will give you the run around till no end. DO NOT do any businesss with him what so ever.
I have all the proof including text messages, emails, invoices, videos, etc. I encourage anyone who has more information on this guy or is pursuing legal action to contact me.
