Javontae is moving on to the Volunteer State
No sooner did we publish “Law Office Scammer, Javontae Holloway” and how he was then focusing his efforts on the Florida Bar, that we received another inquiry this week, from Nashville, Tennessee. It didn't work in Nashville. His song fell flat in Davidson County. His story got about as much traction as a log floating down the Cumberland River. I am happy to report his efforts were again thwarted when the lawyer picked up on a few factual discrepancies, did an online search and found the Lombardi Law Firm blog posts about Javontae Holloway. Apparently, and of course I do not have the lawyer’s notes, but the name Carl Torrence once again, came up. Isn’t that interesting?
“Carl Torrence called us this morning in Nashville. He was rear-ended by a U-Haul truck on 1-40. Paraplegic. Needed rent and electric paid because his colostomy bags needed to be cleaned. But U-Haul does not do partial payments when he called and asked. And, no he did not have that number with him. But someone named John would be there at 11:30 to sign the release for $1.5 million. He thought they had an umbrella for at least $5 million, a lawyer in Mississippi had all but confirmed it. But he could not wait. As I heard the story, I asked if a wreck this bad was covered in the news. He did not know because he was in the hospital and then recovering at his sisters in MS. So, I googled his name and this blog was the first hit…”
It's the same scam, but with slightly different facts. This type of scam has been around since the 1980’s. Back then it was mostly employed in the “Rust Belt”.
Good luck and if you are contacted please let us know so we can continue to track him. As is always the case we will never use the lawyer’s name unless asked to do so.

He then put his 'landlord' on the phone who could was barely coherent. They had to get down to sign the release at 3:45 because the insurance company was flying back. He was going to get 1.5M but owed medicare 225k. He was late on his rent and was 'evicted' a month ago, but if he could pay $189 the landlord would let him stay there until September. The landlord had a very sick wife with stage IV lung cancer and he had to buy her medicine. He never really asked me for the money which is what threw me off.
When I pressed "Kevin" on details and started asking him for information I needed to pull the accident report, he kept saying the insurance company is beeping in, let me call you back. He also asked if I could meet up with him and his sister would come by and show me all the paperwork. He eventually hung up on me.
It sounded reasonable until the 'landlord' got on the phone- which made no sense. I thought at first it was an old buddy of mine playing a trick on me and then realized it was just a scam. I typed in just a few words to google and this pulled blog pulled up. Amazing the similarities.
