A little about my story...
Charles Lance came to me looking to purchase my retail window covering business. Charles R. Lance then took all my bank statements, etc which he was supposed to use for his due diligence and whited out my personal name on all the pages and submitted a loan application stating that HE owned MY company for 3 years.
He also needed a voided company check from me so he could "have the deposit funds put into my account".
To top it off, this "business loan" was not only using MY banking info but it was also stealing $108 out of my account every day thereafter until I got it corrected with the "fast-cash" loan company he went to for this loan.
I filed reports with both the FBI and the local police department. His family must be so proud of him.
Some other bits of info I've been finding online...
Appears to create and hide corporate names under his name backwards: "Lance Charles"
His wife Martha J Lance has a trust that monies were transferred to??
Was trying to file bankruptcy for $31,266,404.63... That's OVER 31 Million Dollars!
Was tied to a guy named Blake Bolin AKA Jennings Blake Bolin
Transferring stocks into his daughters name: Dawn Renne
Opened a Corporation in MY company name and used MY business address to get it opened then changed it online to a postal mailbox once they approved his Corp.
Opened a business checking account using my blinds company name (St Augustine Blinds) and MY business address. Neither this or the Corp filing was EVER authorized by me!
How about this shady looking order form and his business card:
...and exactly what is a "member" Randy?... I mean Charles...or CR...
Would that be a creative way to not tie your name in as an owner when the shit hits the fan again?
And below you will see the email where "Charles" asked for my banking info to put the money in my acct. Which was supposed to be his loan to buy my business which I later found out from FlashAdvance.com that Charles was actually using MY bank statements with MY name whited out and represented himself as owning MY company for 3 years! And once the "loan" completed the very next day the cash advance company started taking money from MY account.

So, since putting this page live for the protection of everyone in our community I'm now receiving threatening voice mails, Facebook posts and bogus Google Reviews for my business from his "partner" Jamie Plavsic who lives in Charles last home town of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Here are some of the threats and posts he has done in the last two days alone:

"Hey listen up douchebag. Hey this is the guy that runs that fucking facebook page for the blind company. Thats my fucking facebook page you dickhead. So I'm gonna tell you something, let me catch you writing any more shit about me or my stuff on my fucking pages and I'll come down to fucking Florida and see you myself asshole and i promiss you, you don't want to fucking see me. Do it again!"
"So hey, hey jerkoff. This is the guy that runs the website for St Augustine Blinds LLC. I see you keep clicking my stuff up. Dude you're going to have a serious problem with me in a minute. So keep clicking it up bro and I'm just gonna take your sites down, so have at it bro."
Facebook Posts to my St Augustine Blinds Page:
1. Let me tell you something you cocksucker, I would advise you not be posting to other peoples facebook pages you low life cocksucking thief and liar
2. “Joe Mehm is a con artist and clown.…” – James Plavsic
3. I would advise you keep your comments to your own fucking facebook page. If you post to my page ever again, I will unleash a campaign against all your web properties the likes you have never seen, i am not the guy you want to be fucking with. Yours Truly Douchebag - Jamie P
Some Google Reviews he posted all within minutes of leaving me the first threatening voicemail:
1. “Overpriced and cheap quality blinds.…” – Analyeli Melgar
2. “Overpriced and the guy was rude…” – Amarilis Ortega
3. “Called Joe to come give me an estimate…” – Steve Degusipe
4. “What an awful experience. Do yourself…” – Rachel Schultz
So, the threats I'm getting are from this violent criminal?? And he has the nerve to be attacking me and my websites about other people? WOW! Now I see why you and Randy Lance are partners.
Below is a reprint from Cape Code Today's police report.
of 812 Route 28 in South Yarmouth, arrested at that address on February 20 at 12:39 a.m. during a domestic violence call for Felony Aggravated Assault and Battery, Felony Assault to Maim, Felony Intimidation of a Witness and Felony Assault and Battery with Serious Bodily Injuries."
This is the partner for AllProWindowBlinds.com? and owner of EconomyWindowBlinds.com? Scary.
Click on the image on left to see the link to Cape Cod Today police report.
Do you really want to keep harrassing and threatening me Jamie? Is it worth the criminal dollars that Randy is paying you?
I've never done anything to you and you have been threatening me and slandering me and our businesses for months now and for what?
Just because that convicted felon throws you some cash?
I don't have a problem leaving you out of this ongoing case as long as you stop the threats. The ONLY reason you are thrown into the mix of all this is because of Randy. Is he worth it?
You looking to be arrested again? He's going down for all his crimes and I wouldn't recommend you taking the fall with him. It wont be pretty.
...or maybe we move on to the next one...

More info I just received...(4-19-2015)
It's an email from someone who has also dealt with the scammers...
"Charles and Martha Lance has been able to cheat, lie and steal from
many financial institutions, individuals, companies and
unsuspecting folks for a long time. As you reported, Charles has
spend time in prison, twice, and still continues to only fine tune
his illegal and fraudulent dealings.
Until recently, they owned the home at 1311 Atlantic Avenue in
Melbourne, and the Heydon Hall residence in Charlotte, NC. Both
homes were over $1.5 and was acquired by stepping on the backs of
the public. They were foreclosed upon a few months ago and they
returned to St. Augustine, as you only know so well. The Lance's
started their fraudulent life in St. Augustine as you can tell by
the corporation filings in Florida. I expect they are in
desperation mode as their ill-gotten gains and the few businesses
he ran are finished. The last tries being the restaurant biz in
both Florida and in South Carolina. He was involved in a penny
stock slimy venture both UNQT, and SLNX (Solanbridge) where his
"related party" stock gifts remain under suspicion. Anything and
everything he touched was fraudulent. Also, the Used Parts America
that was in South Carolina, as you mentioned, was being run by the
daughter. He used and abused family members, as you have learned,
too. Their culpability is suspect.
PACER documents showing Martha Lance's current BK will outline the
dealings in a good time line. The court appointed a Trustee as the
Lance's were accused of untruthfulness, fraudulent actions, and
other "court" terms for bankruptcy fraud. Although, nothing has
been charged....yet. The case number is 3:14-bk-30262, filed
2/19/14 in North Carolina Western BK Court. PACER is Public Access
to Court Electronic Records and will help you, if you choose, to
follow both Charles and Martha. It appears they file BK about
every 10 years and runs into the tens of millions of dollars.
Also, Lance is paying a Restitution Order that was for the amount
of $1.93 million dollars. This was ordered 2/25/1992. for the Tampa
Bank scam and check kiting ordeal which caused the bank to close.
He has cut a wide swath across Florida and looks like he has
returned. Hopefully, you will be able to help the authorities
close the book on these two and be able to render their punishment
for their terrible deeds.
Lance is also a big bully so I am not surprised that you have
gotten hate mail, or other disparaging acts committed. I hope you
have good legal advisers and will be able to throw the book at this
It's time to contact the Bankruptcy trustee's (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) AND American Greed
(firstname.lastname@example.org)...Your scamming days are almost over!
...they have been contacted. Anyone else with information about this guy can email me below.
