Mark Timms claims, on his Match.com profile, that he earns over $150,000 a year. Considering that he’s learning to be a genius, you’d think he’d know that if you get a bill, you pay it. Right?
Not in Mark Timms’ world.
Timms started posting as MTRE007 on a website called Debt Consolidation Credit Repair Service. Why? Because he has a bad credit rating and history. Mark Timms does not pay his bills. He started many threads on their forum about his bad rating. Any time a user responded in a logical manner that he didn’t agree with (like pointing out the errors of Mark’s ways) he simply ignored it and started a new thread, continuing to whine about his self created situation. He’s never ever at fault, in his mind. He’s always a victim of everyone and everything else. I’m sure this behaviour has some sort of pathological term for it.
I do love that he’s using MTRE007 yet again. The same nick he uses on Match.com and as an affiliate link in spamming other dodgy programs elsewhere. I’ll tell you all about that later. But first, the credit history whining.
I had back surgey when I was 22. I was covered under my parents Blue cross plan at the time. Coincidently during this time, the company my dad worked for switched insurance companies. The hospital never followed up with the other insurance company and I never knew it was unpaid. That is until I went to sell a house 5 years later, I found out I had a 6 month old judgement. He sent it my parents home and my mom received but failed to tell me!!!!!
The lawyer sent the judgement to my parents house 41/2 years later! Yeah, statute of limitation had ran out and the lawyer had no right to send a judgement so old. So, I got a lawyer and he made a motion. Well, despite the fact that we had post office change of address forms along with other data that showed that I WAS NOT living with my parents at the age of 26, the judge asked for me to settle the debt. Well, even if I wanted to settle, the plaintiff lawyer has been impossible to contact and my defense lawyer has flaked, wanting more money and says he doesnt do appeals. WHAT DO I DO???? - source
I know, he’s illiterate. And stupid. The judgement was accepted at the address listed. Just because he didn’t accept it but a relative did, doesn’t mean the acceptance was illegal. And I really doubt his mother failed to tell him. More likely she told him and it was something he didn’t want to deal with, so he ignored it. He does that a lot.
Do you know why he wasn’t the one to accept the judgement papers? He’d moved and was too lazy to update his address details:
I never changed my DMV stuff because I never thought it was a big deal and those lines! - source
Yeah those pesky lines are such a bore, only working stiffs would bother with that, right Mark?
Mark also likes putting everyone else at risk:
I lost my license due to DUI in college - source
Have you ever heard of the concept of NOT drink driving, you selfish prick? Look up the stats on the amount of innocent lives lost annually to drunk drivers. Disgusting.
And how does Mark Timms cope with owing money and not paying his bills, therefore having a strike on his credit history and impairing his ability to borrow even more money? Sue them all!
Been trying to settle but the hospitals lawyer is an ass and refuses to talk to me saying go get an appeals lawyer! When I win this thing I am going to turn around and sue him for filing a judgement after SOL. Can I do that? - source
I sent certified letters to the collection agency and they never responded. Every time I call them they ask how I would like to pay!!!!! Its not my account and they have nothing!
What do I do now? Sue them right? Do I sue them in my town or their’s??? - source
My credit report has one of my rentals as a primary address. My old tenants put stuff in my name!!!
I would pay but It will still remain as a collection and I heard that there is no way in hell to get it off if I pay.
Its a collection from a bug spray company. 200 bucks. I don’t pay to keep my tenants homes free of bugs! Its not my fault they were filthy. I tried contacting the local company and ended up sending a certified to the CA but nothing.
The bottom line is, they didnt reply, cant I sue for that? source
Isn’t he a lovely landlord? “It’s not my fault” is one of his favourite phrases. I imagine the bug problem was there before your poor tenants moved in, after all, Mark, you’re known for buying clapped out houses and renting them out. And going to foreclosure court a lot and being sued for not paying your mortgages, aren’t you?
When is it best to sue in small claims versus federal? Only knowledgable responses please. - source
In other words, if you answer me with a legitimate response pointing out the error of my ways, I’m going to ignore you.
Local court says I need to sue in town of collection agency for not validating claim and keeping it on my report. I guess I could sue experian and Transunion but they said the same thing applied! WHAT DO I DO. I have an account that doesnt belong on my report and the collection agency has nothiong but cant get it removed. I wanna make some cash in a settlement if possible - source
I’ll bet he needs the cash because other creditors are chasing him. When you’re not earning anything because god forbid you should actually hold down a real job like an adult, well, those bills do mount up! Eventually you DO have to pay some of them.
Theres a bill I havent paid in a year. - source
So pay it! What are you, Mark Timms, a twelve year old?
Not only are all lawyers Mark Timms deals with ‘crooked’, but so are his parents apparently:
If a lawyer files a judgment after statute of limitation has expired can he be sued for malpractice?
The thing is, a crooked lawyer sent a judgment to my parents address, knowing I lived on my own. My parents never notified me instead went after the hospital and insurance. The judgment was for a case that happened years earlier when I lived at my parents and was covered under their insurance. They never sent me the papers so I never knew I was served until I went to sell a house a few months later. Can I sue the lawyer for clearly putting a judgment on my record well after statute of limitations. - source
as well as
I was served at my parent’s house. I have all the information that proves I didnt live there, change of address, taxes show my house as primary,etc……. Debt collector simply used address they had from a 5 year old debt. Yeah SOL had ran out on it and the lawyer’s partner is my neighbor down the street. HOw screwed is that! Whats more screwed is the fact that my parents didnt tell me!!! Someone please email me and tell me what I need to do now. Been waiting 6 months for I dont know what. THe judge already ruloed in their favor but will be takng it to appeals. - source
and he has another go at his ‘crappy’ lawyer
I have a case in which I was improperly served a judgment for a mediacl bill at my parent’s home.
The collection account in question was well over Statute of Limitation.
My Lawyer is crappy and wont call me back.
WE had a hearing and lost because the lawyer and judge are crappy.Its awaiting appeals now.
I have proof of address and the debt collector has nothing but an old record saying my parents address from 6 years ago!
Can I request the debt collector to validate the accuracy of the debt or is that too late? - source
A poster responded to that one, but obviously posted what Timms didn’t want to hear, so he ignored it. See, never Mark Timms fault, is it?
Mark Timms not only owes money on a hospital bill he ran up, and wants to sue anyone he’s come across trying to avoid paying it, he’s also got car problems:
What Do I do??????? I honestly had my car stolen a few years ago. I had to take the insurance company to court to pay the deal. The loan was through American General and the insurance was through a company they used. It was all an inside deal. Anyway, It shows on my account as settled for less than amount. The insurance company not only made it derogatory, they settled with American General for less than what was due!!!
What do I do. Can I sue or threaten to sue American general under FCRA rules??? I just want this thing to go away. Its been on my account for 4 years and has seriously stalled my ability to use my credit. - source
In essence - he bought a car, someone ‘took’ it, Timms paid too much for it, now insurance won’t cover the difference. Still owes money on car payments, and the ‘theft’ of the car didn’t cover what’s owing. Timms’ reaction? Sue someone!
He’s had FOUR YEARS to deal with this. Normal people would have sucked it up about the difference and PAID.THE.BILL. Mark Timms ignored it, scored another strike on his credit history and now thinks the only solution is a law suit. I’m surprised he hasn’t tried to sue me yet, for exposing all his fraudulent activities, scamming and lies.
He’s also threatened to sue someone, anyone, lawyers, collection agencies, you name it, eight times!
Mark Timms told a journalist on the 7th of this month that he’d raised $160,000 for MyBowlAd or MySuperAd so far. Yet he’s scrounging around on debt fix forums on how to sue for a cash settlement because he’s in dire need of money?
He also posted on a spam blog for satellite tv software with something that looks like it’s condoning theft of satellite television:
Note that MTRE007 link! Funny thing is the link doesn’t work, I think Timms got caught spamming and paydotcom have deleted his account.
Yes, Mark Timms has ANOTHER blog up, as well as mysuperad.blogspot.com pushing his fraud, and carolinafilm.blogspot.com pushing his ‘genius’ program. He now owns freecablenetwork.org, which redirects to freecablenetwork.blogspot.com and looks like it’s one of those ‘how to steal satellite tv’ kind of things happening there. Nice. Free hosting sites are his forte nowadays, because he’s so broke he can’t afford proper web hosting.
Note how he can’t even spell his own address? It’s Castlereagh Road. Not Catslereagh. Nor does he include his correct details on the domain listing - that’s not his name or company name. I’ve reported him for falsely registering the domain. It’s against ICANNS rules to submit false information on a domain registration.
And again with the 007 - this time in the email address Marktimms007@yahoo.com James Bond he sure ain’t!
I’d LOVE to speak to Mark Timms’ ex lawyer. If anyone knows him, please feel free to send him over here and ask him to get in touch. I bet he would be enormously useful in my case against Timms the fraudster.
I’m incredulous that Timms is still getting publicity for the flaming failure that MyBowlAd was. Superbowl 2008 came and went and no MyBowlAd commercial like he promised. Yet journalists are still willing to write articles about the failure and Timms’ new scam, without even turning to Google to see what’s being said about Timms’ project? Just one Googling of Mark Timms, MySuperAd or MyBowlAd would have brought up pages of links back to this site.
Hopefully my site has turned off at least one prospective customer. Anyone who goes into business with Mark Timms is a fool; you’ll lose your money and never see anything for it.
I’ve got all the screencaps from every single thread Timms created and/or posted in, so if he goes back now and edits his posts to hide the truth again, doh! Too late.
