Ken Banks

Scammer Alert Con Artist- He is still Out There Robbing Other Women
After a nasty break up with my boyfriend of six years I guess I was particularly vulnerable at the time. On 5-17-07 I met Kenneth R. Banks on vacation in St. Pete Florida with my mother and my son. He and I became friends. We spent the weekend together and then continued seeing other each beyond that weekend. We were inseparable and he introduced his daughter to me. My son and his daughter and all of us became close over the next couple of months he introduced his family to me including his mother who also resided in St. Petersburg. He got very intimate with me very quickly and he told me his family owned Speedo USA. That he had a trust fund his father left him when he died. He was very flashy with lots of cash and also told me he had a tree removal business and a bar business in Buffalo. He was very aggressive courting me and even proposed to me and gave me a ring. During this time he was taking me and my son many places like Disney World with my family and his daughter. But this was all SMOKE AND MIRRORS. What Ken was actually doing was using my credit cards without my knowledge. I had a small event business called The Buzz Effect. These credit cards were my business accounts. When I realized the extent of the charges I demanded the money back. He assured me we were to be married and it was this was only chump change to him and paying me back was no problem at all. He made three check payments from his account to my cards one for $2749.15 and one for $6000.00equaling $8749.15 to make good on the money he owed on my AMEX card. He also made a payment of $9000.00 onto my Bank of America card. I was living with my mom after the breakup with my boyfriend so my mail and the statements had not caught up to me yet. I went to a funeral with my family Ken Banks came with me. When I returned I found out all the electronic checks had bounced that he paid me. Large payments take 7 to 10 business to process so when these large payments were made on the cards the credit limits went up. Ken continued to charge behind my back during the two weeks that the payments were in limbo. Plain tickets, phone bills, bar tabs anything and everything was on my cards. The bounced fees were endless the overages, the interest rates sky rocketed. The payments were in the thousands. When I returned from the funeral from upstate I was to meet Ken in Florida again. He never was to be seen again. He changed his cell phone number and I was stuck with tons more charges he charged after he supposedly paid me back. My business was bankrupted. I had to get a new job and pay down the charges for several years. I also paid an attorney for three years to file a judgment against him…which is now filed! My life will never be the same I have spent all my child’s college funds and I’m still fighting to stay afloat!!! By the way the ring he gave me was worth $50.00 I practically died in the jeweler’s store. The only reason I am writing this is because I have ran into people that Ken has also embezzled. I hope this protects the new women he is about to scam. The grand total on the record is approximately $53,000.00!!!!!
