We met Jeremy Michael Derks through a mutual friend at church here in Las Vegas. Upon meeting Jeremy, he mentioned an e-commerce business he maintains and provides services through Shopify called “The Drop Shipping Company, LLC.” After further in-depth discussion with Jeremy, we decided to move forward with the investment. Jeremy requested an initial investment of $30,000 to build, maintain and provide services for 2 Shopify stores for a duration of 24 months and said they would be up and running within 3-4 days after the initial investment was paid. We paid Jeremy the initial amount of $30,000 through a wire transfer from our bank (Navy Federal) on or around May 17th, 2023, in which Jeremy confirmed the receipt of the payment. Once the payment was received Jeremy then began to build the stores with our cooperation and was communicating as needed. We reached the 3–4-day period and did not have any of our stores up and running, soon thereafter days turned into weeks, and we started receiving multiple excuses from Jeremy as to why the stores were not finished. Jeremy then started to become less communicative and less responsive to building the stores and maintaining the ads and sales as promised. We grew suspicious during this time and started to do more research on Jeremy using the internet and found multiple reports, complaints, videos, and testimonies about Jeremy being a con artist and scamming multiple people for years out of tens of thousands of dollars if not hundreds. Since then, Jeremy has continued to neglect his commitment to building our stores and does not communicate the progress, status, or his intentions. We asked for the money back and he responded by saying he would give us stores that are already built and making $2,000 -$5,000 a month but that was as far as it went, a verbal commitment and no action. It has been over a month now, so we are getting together with other victims to persecute Jeremy on a Federal Level.
