    Jon Paul Schell is at it again (sadly, I was scammed out of $300). The more digging I do, the more I find out about this guy. I pulled a background check and found numerous fraud convictions. I have done some research online to find his name to be rather popular in the fraud game.

    Here is a link to his FB – https://www.facebook.com/jpaul.schell

    I also attached a photo of him, one he sent of empty boxes as a way to “prove” he has the items for sale.

    I do a basic google search every month or so wondering if he has been arrested yet, nope, apparently he’s still out there scamming people. I was also scammed by Jon Paul Schell, for around $600 – in connection with his wife Shirley Remington Schell on Facebook Marketplace / mostly communicated through Jon Paul Schell. I sent him the money, he kept saying he would ship the items out everyday, he never shipped them out, I had to go through my bank to get my money back and opened several investigations – the bank confirmed and credited my account – the other I never received any confirmations about and unsure on its status (federal report). I have every single screenshot of our conversation, pictures, personal details, with timestamps, and recorded messages.

    It’s unfortunate JPS is still out there scamming people. Make sure to report Jon Paul Schell at https://www.ic3.gov/Home/FileComplaint if you’ve been scammed. The more reports, the better.

    Jon Paul Schell also operates a Hot Sauce company called “Dirty South Hot Sauce” and lives in/around Rapid City, SD as of 2021 – often posting on websites. He has been scamming people for at least 22 years – https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-xpm-2000-07-28-0007280320-story.html – I am confident that is the same person – he told me his age in our conversation history and that matches up perfectly with how old he was in this article.

      Here is a list of the things I have done so far –

      Screen shot a message of the item for sale before he was able to make it vanish (after I paid of course)

      Saving all messages because this fella has become so comfortable he continues to communicate. I was able to get him to say that he ‘shipped the item’ even though we all are aware it won’t show up.

      I reported to the federal fraud website

      I emailed Indiana’s AG (previous state of residence)

      I emailed South Dakota’s AG (current state of residence)

      I have emailed and reported to Facebook

      I reported to youtube that his account is being used to advertise for his fraud scheme (including texts with the link)

      I have pulled a full background check on both Jon Paul Schell and his wife Shirley Anne Remington (Currently Shirley Anne Schell). If anyone want’s a copy of those, feel free to email me at nacnacpro400ex@aol.com

      Current Address is one of two, the first being the most probable

      5150 Leroy Street, Rapid City, South Dakota, 57703

      3813 School Drive, Rapid City, South Dakota, 57703

      Current phone number is 605-389-4598

      605-595-5783 may be Shirley’s number but I can not verify this one.

      His last known employment was with Berendse and Sons Paint

      He claims he is the owner of Full Throttle Hot Sauce

      Attached are some photos he just sent claiming he bought some real estate property

      Also adding some of our conversation so people can get a feel for how this guy operates

      Here is a link to his youtube

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnG1etWKdAA&feature=youtu.be

      I am sure I am missing some details but hopefully this helps at least one person. If anything new comes to light with the AG, I will report here.

        I also reported to apple pay that the payment was for fraud along with my bank, who is investigating it as well. I gave the bank the guy’s name, but I doubt that really matters. This is so wild of a story that I want to share as much information as I can in hopes that someone with power could get involved. Despite being convicted for fraud in Indiana, it blows my mind how easy it is for this guy to get away with this stuff

    This has brought up a lot of bad memories for me, I will attach some screenshots of our conversation which includes some of his details – it may not be in the best order but I feel any order you might be able to understand the frustration.

    To be clear, I never received any items from Jon Paul Schell or his wife Shirley Remington Schell, it has been months now, and I never will receive anything from them because they are con artists. My bank credited me the money back that Jon scammed from me and concluded their investigation into the matter. I hope one day Jon Paul Schell is arrested, it would bring some ease knowing that he would serve time for defrauding so many people. I don’t know why the law doesn’t step in but the most we can do in this digital age is share our stories, and I’m not ashamed to say I was scammed by Jon Paul Schell. I hope others learn from my mistakes, and I’m sorry Ryan also had to go through this experience, it weighed heavy on me for quite some time and took me a long time to move on from.

    Here are some final screenshots.

    I have more than 120 screenshots total, so many pictures, and other detailed evidence. To me, it sounded like he was threatening to show up at my house in [redacted] city which I trespassed him through text, regardless, don’t want a crazy guy showing up at my house. We’ve beefed up security since then.

    He used his children in our conversation, he shared pictures of his daughter, he shared pictures of his wife, he shared pictures of himself, and he shared pictures of himself with various Full Throttle Saloon staff.

    I hope no one else has to get conned, I really do, I wish they could lock this guy up already and get the money back that he stole from so many people. He was using his wife’s Facebook account and communicating through that account as well as his own account that Ryan shared earlier, if that’s not breaking some laws, I don’t know what can be done at this point besides internet shaming.

        It sounds like you have a lot more know-how than I do. If there’s anything I can do to help, please send me a private message, I’d rather not identify myself because I fear retaliation.

      This is either a coincidence or spirits speaking because someone in our group just messaged us yesterday warning us about this same scammer. But he claimed to be from California doing business out there. When did you initially start talking to this scammer?

        I sent him money on the 13th of Feb, 2022. I still talk to him almost daily, which he steadily insists that I will get the phone I paid for and a refund. It is like 7 stages of grief with this guy. He pivots from anger, to silence, to salesman, to sadness…. from message to message. I think what he wants is someone to threaten him so it gives him an out. He is VERY cautious not to say anything past ‘I will see you very soon’

        Attached are a few more screen shots of a conversation yesterday

        Do you have more information on your encounter? Do you know others with detail? It would be great to get more involved on this site in the event the state of South Dakota needs more evidence to crush this guy.

      We had to add each other on Facebook in order for me to send payment to him through Facebook pay (of which of course Facebook does not support any peer-to-peer transactions, so Facebook didn’t care that I didn’t get what I paid for). He also sent me these pictures, he also sent other pictures which seemed very private, and I also spoke to him on the phone several times. There is not one single doubt in my mind that this is him.

      I spent WEEKS of my life dealing with this guy.

      As far as it being him, I am not 100%, but using a linked relative off of a background check, compared to a photo he posted in 2009 on a different facebook page that he no longer uses, what I believe to be his daughter has not only confirmed an address that I suspected to be his but also that he is who he says he is (and that he is a ‘scam…bum…and owes back child support’

      I have tried to reach out to a few people on a radio forum (his scams from the 2009 area), which I will post links to, but the forum administrators refuse to allow my post, probably because I am new to the site.

      I have been trying to contact people who have met him face to face for 100% verification but with no luck. Hopefully I can get lucky here at some point

    Here’s a couple more screenshots, near the end of my interactions with Jon Paul Schell, he was getting nasty – I kept requesting a refund, he kept saying he would do it, he never did it as you can imagine. I never received any items or a refund from him – my bank had to step in and credit me what was stolen.

    You can see some of the pictures he sent me in my conversation with him, one of them is blacked out because I sent him pictures because I thought we were having a friendly conversation / before I really knew what was happening. I was conned by a serial con man. That hurt for a long time, but it has made me a stronger person, I hope no one ever has to go through an experience like this though. It came at a very difficult time in my life, and as you can see it was right around the corner from Christmas. That stung quite a bit. I hope Ryan is able to get in contact with the right people and hopefully put a stop to this once and for all. I am thankful there’s an active community online in the digital age looking to do some good out there.

    I spent WEEKS of my life dealing with this guy and his lies, from late October 2021 to finally resolving everything with my bank in December 2021.

      I want to first and foremost say that I feel your pain. I can not make the negative emotions of this situation go away, but I want to inform you that you are not alone with wanting this guy to go to jail. I have no desire to quit this quest until all avenues have been exhausted or Jon Paul is in jail.

      Here is a link to a fraud claim form on South Dakota’s AG website. He lives and has lived in South Dakota for some time, so this is the form that needs to be filled out by as many people as possible.


      I have posted his phone, address, etc above, but anyone needs that information again, feel free to reach out.

        Honestly guys excellent work. We need more people aware of this guy. There are many Jon Paul profiles online. Did you try reporting him through this websites extension? For us we spread the word everywhere because the more it is reported through several avenues the better. And these guys have a pretty decent database

        They sent me a letter saying they are looking into the matter. That’s the first real contact back from someone saying they are doing something, it’s better than nothing! Thanks for your help, Ryan, I hope you were able to get some kind of closure from this or received a response as well.

    I was married to Paul in 1997 we have two kids he left and has not seen since 2008 and also owes $80,,000 child support. Police never do anything. Glad I raised them alone though seems he hasn’t changed at all. Worthless liar who always steals and robs people! Ruined my life!

    I was just doing my rounds on this guy as I normally do on the internet, and I noticed a new link I hadn’t seen before – posted pretty much nearly identical to when this was posted but a completely different terrible story of someone being scammed by Jon Paul Schell. This time it involved a kid being scammed, that hurts a lot.

    https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-owen-get-the-vr-set-he-saved-so-long-for

    It’s the same guy. Jon Paul Schell from Rapid City, SD.
