Florida, Texas, California, Washington and now Richmond, Virginia, is where the FedEx and Walmart scam has been being played on lawyers. The facts are being changed but the end game remains the same: See if the lawyer will send either money or GreenDot cards so the man injured can pay his rent to avoid being evicted. If eviction is likely this paraplegic will be forced to sign a full release with Sedgwick and he will lose millions. Tugging at the lawyers’ heart strings is the landlord Mr. Larry Jackson whose wife is suffering from the late stages of breast cancer. The landlord needs his rent money to buy her cancer drugs (and a little beer he let on to the good old boy down in Texas). If the tenant (Javontae Holloway, aka Javontae Gowdy, Devonte Growdy and Randy Lee Williams) cannot pay up his rent that is in arrears the landlord (the mean Mr. Jackson) will have no choice but to evict and send him forthwith to a nursing home. Sounds like a plan that many lawyers can correct except there are holes in this story large enough to drive a semi-truck through.
- First and foremost Sedgwick would never pay any claimant money without first getting a Medicare Set-aside evaluation. Without it the settlement would be voidable.
- The next problem has to do with the Release being sent to the lawyers. The release is always blurry and never a complete copy. That should be a huge red flag to any lawyer.
- Then there is the insurance adjuster issue; Where is he and his working telephone number with a receptionist to answer? When you call Robert Johnson you will find him only working out of the Sedgwick office in Tennessee. He does not work in Louisiana or Florida.
- And then what about shoes payments Javontae is requesting. Why must they be send with GreenDot cards? Why doesn’t Mr. Jackson have a checking or savings account?
Everything points toward nothing being traceable (even the burner phone) so that law enforcement cannot catch this rascal. Trust me the Sheriff in Napoleonville, LA (Assumption Parish) looked and the home address being used is a vacant home. The mailbox did have one letter from a lawyer turning down the case though.
Phone Numbers being used: (225)200-1627, (601)260-2807 and (985)498-8832
