TONY ROSE: THE CAR-BUG CON MAN

Tony Rose came into Almerimar for the winter of 2008 in an old 115ft MGB. He is a classic scammer, he sees all new people as victims not friends. He has no remorse for the people he has conned. He smiles with his teeth not his eyes. He will assess you and see if you are worth setting up.
As an example he set up a stall selling clothing to porportably to help victims of the 2008 tsunami – he pocketed the money and used it to buy prostitutes.
He personally took 200 euros  from me and many thousands from a friend also in Almerimar selling worthless shares in his bankrupt company – Carbug Ltd

I gave him my car, that I was going to completly upgrade after it was re-plated, and 800 euros.
I was hoping this could all be done while I had a hip oporation. He added dramaticaly to my stress.
After a very long story and many emails and phone calls my car ended up in the breakers yard as scrap after he and his cronies wrecked it. I received a couple of hundred euros refund. In all I lost my car and 600 euros.
