I’m hearing stories from all over central Illinois about people who have hired Justin Barr and feel ripped off. All the reports started when I published this story: https://blnnews.com/2019/01/12/lexington-guy-arrested-in-joliet-he-has-history-here/
If you are a victim and have NOT filed a police report, you need to now. If the police refuse to take the report because they consider it a civil matter, have them contact Don Knapp, McLean County State’s Attorney. He will fill them in on what is happening and ask them to take the report so the claims can be investigated.
If you aren’t in McLean County go to your local sheriff and file a report. If they refuse to take it, contact your State’s Attorney and have them call Don Knapp. The easiest cases of fraud to prove are ones where money was taken and no work was done. Others are more difficult, but all need to be reported so a complete story can be put together.
Please let me know you too so I can track what’s happening: firstname.lastname@example.org
