Recently the schemer has entered the Hawaii market and is offering a Hawaii House for one of his “Essay Contests”.  I’m not going to link the site any longer, but you can read some of my previous posts on this here, here, here and here.  Interesting comments have been made on most of those posts.

Samwick has been operating bogus sites for over a decade now.  I’m not even sure if Samwick is his true name.  Above is a collection of various ID’s sent to me of Samwick by an anonymous source.

KGMB even fell for this crap a few days ago: http://kgmb9.com/main/content/view/13118/108/ (video clip starts a bit late)

When his essay houses don’t fall through, he has other schemes lined up to get home owners to fall for some BS.

“**Check out this scam where he uses the alias “Sam Wick” (for when the essay BS doesn’t work, he has the “foolproof” backup plan of nutty-religious-idol-worship-voodoo crap) : http://www.saintjosephsellshomes.com/

So if you come across some of these bogus sites in the near future… remember it’s a buyer beware market out there.

If you think something is too good to be true, well then….?

This Smuck is for you Mark Samwick!

  1. Damon – I just got this in a “speaker’s request” form submission on our business site http://www.barefeetstudios.com. Another flag for me was “we didn’t get enough entries so we are extending the contest.” Well, what’s to keep you from extending it again?

    Thanks for posting your point of view and research.

  2. Nice site and nice set of awards…but speaking as a person who lives in New York (but is from Hilo)…it’s not “smuck,” but “schmuck.” You need the “sh” sound to properly render the Yiddish word schmuck.

    Damon – Smuck is my version of a take off last my name.
