Don Juravin SCAMMED by Attorney Andrew Hill

Disappeared with the trust money of Don Juravin and the government. Currently not eligible to practice law. Reprimanded by the Florida Bar. While 4 law firms hired and fired attorney Andrew Hill without reporting to the Florida Bar or the public, Don Juravin fights to protect the public.

Andrew Hill (Bar 46755) acted as the attorney for Don Juravin and his business beginning from October 2017. 

Attorney Hill is still representing Don Juravin, his wife and the businesses in some cases. However, he failed to show up to these cases, leaving Juravin no choice but to file this Bar complaint.

Andrew Hill showed up with his wife Mellisa Hill who did the negotiations for him. In the initial period, he did everything to gain Juravin’s trust. He abused that trust by lying to Juravin and other attorneys, stealing from Juravin, and disappearing on Juravin without notice.

ANDREW HILL LIED ABOUT FILING A COMPLAINT

MATCH complaint was against credit card processors who had blacklisted Juravin’s business. Andrew Hill drafted it and pretended for months to be working on it. He charged Juravin for many hours. Hill told him and another attorney, April Goodwin, that he had filed the complaint in April 2018. Then, Andrew Hill told him that none of the defendants had responded; therefore they had defaulted. He told Juravin and  Goodwin that he had filed a motion for default against all the defendants and that it had to be set for hearing. He kept dragging his feet on setting it for hearing, making up reasons for why it hadn’t been done or distracting my attention from it.

Finally, in October 2018 Hill said that he had a hearing scheduled. Around the end of October, he claimed he was going to this hearing. He gave a story about driving there and waiting for the judge to start the hearing. He told Juravin the judge wanted him to do something and come back another day.

Not long after, another attorney who was working for Juravin at the time asked him about it, because they needed the case number for Juravin bankruptcy petition filing. Hill finally admitted to her that the case had never been filed and he was lying all along, including lying about going to the hearing.

    • BILLED JURAVIN FOR HOURS HE DIDN’T WORKED

Throughout the last several months he was working for Juravin, Attorney Hill routinely disappeared during the day. He had agreed to work for Juravin exclusively and be available to me certain hours of the day. Without notice, he would go missing, even though he later billed me for those hours.

Moreover, attorney Andrew Hill billed Juravin for hours he was watching sports, news, and pornography on the web.

    • LIED ABOUT BEING IN THE HOSPITAL TO GET OUT OF WORK FOR JURAVIN

Several times, in order to play on Juravin’s sympathies for him, Mr. Hill lied about health issues he was having, including about being in the hospital. 

    • ANDREW HILL OMITTED HIS MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS

When Juravin hired Mr. Hill, he represented to Juravin that he was able to do the work Juravin asked of him and to lead the legal team. Juravin was upfront with him about the demands of the job, and he assured him he could do it. However, Juravin later found out that Hill could not do the job he was hired to do due to his ongoing mental health problems. He should have told Juravin about these problems before Juravin hired him.

    • ANDREW HILL SIGNED CONTRACTS WITH NO INTENT TO HONOUR THEM

There were three contracts Mr. Hill signed with Don Karl Juravin during his time spent with Jurain. Don had to keep updating them because of his disappearing and refusal to work within Juravin’s rules that he had agreed to from the beginning. He signed these contracts with no intent to honor them because he kept disregarding their terms  This caused tension and friction between him, Juravin, and the rest of Juravin’s legal team.

    • ANDREW HILL USES DRUGS

On several occasions, Hill seemed to be under the influence of drugs. 

ANDREW HILL STOLE MONEY

At the very beginning of January 2018, Juravin paid Andrew Hill $25,000.00 (one check for $10,000.00 and one for $15,000.00) to go into his trust account. Even though their agreement was that Juravin would only issue payment after the work was completed, Juravin wanted him to be able to work without worrying about payment. When he began showing that he was having problems giving Don Juravin consistent work, Juravin told him that he wanted his money back. Hill giving Juravin the runaround. He forced Juravin to enter into another agreement or else he would disappear with the money. Juravin had to beg him to return him the money for a month and a half. But he just disappeared. Hill always had stories about why he couldn’t meet Juravin. He eventually said he didn’t have the money but had deposited it in his personal account, not his trust account.  That money became a “forced loan” with a second agreement.

    • ANDREW HILL DISAPPEARED WITH THE GOVERNMENT FTC FROZEN MONEY IN A TRUST ACCOUNT

During his work for Juravin, Andrew Hill accepted the transfer of funds that had been frozen by the FTC from Juravin’s prior attorney. These funds were to go into his trust account and were subject to an Asset Freeze Order by the Middle District of Florida. Another attorney, who was working with Juravin on complying with turning these funds over to the FTC after the case was final, asked Hill several times for the bank information to provide to the FTC.hile he said he had the funds, Hill ignored her requests for verification and bank information.

    • STOLEN REFUND FROM ANOTHER ATTORNEY 

A check was sent to him from a New Jersey attorney, Richard Newman.  Hill was supposed to hold this check-in his trust account for Juravin. Juravin never received those funds.

    • STOLEN & PAWNED JURAVIN’S LAPTOP

  Andrew Hill was given a computer at the cost of almost $2,000 so he could be more productive. He sold Juravin’s computer and lied that he still uses it. 

    •  ANDREW HILL STOLE MONEY FROM DON JURAVIN’S CREDIT CARD

Andrew Hill admitted to using the business credit card for personal items, including at a pawn shop. Attached is the statement from the pawnshop in question. Juravin has reported this to the police and they also will turn it over to the State Attorney’s Office for investigation.

  1. Stole Juravin’s credit card identity, used his name Don Juravin, in KWIK PAWN & JEWELRY. 1027 S DILLARD ST, WINTER GARDEN, FL, 34787 407.614.5938
  1. Stole Juravin’s credit card identity several other times while Juravin was overseas. 

He threatened to kill himself if Juravin reported this incident to the police.  

Juravin is available to give you more evidence and testimony. This attorney is a disgrace for the Florida Bar.

Don Juravin Exposes Credit Card Scams Using 500 eBay and PayPal Transactions DEFRAUDING $2 MILLION

Don Juravin Exposes: $2 million defrauding PayPal and eBay with 500 fake accounts and transactions done by Vietnamese man from CA. Don Karl Juravin revealed.
From about 2013 through August of 2019, Ho was able to use bank accounts to the fraudulent PayPal accounts to receive more than 500 deposits totaling more than $2 million. The FBI and Carmel police raid on Thursday was connected to a $2 million fraud. Tuong Quoc Ho, 32, is accused of an elaborate credit card scheme using eBay and PayPal.
“Card-not-present” credit, debit and prepaid card fraud has ballooned in the United States in the last few years, reaching $4.57 billion in 2016, up 34 percent from the year before, according to the most recent Federal Reserve Payments Study . These shadowy crimes hurt both small businesses and the customer shopping experience.
He is now facing 28 federal counts including wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud and money laundering.

Don Juravin Exposes: Fake Documents

According to court documents, Ho was able to get names, addresses, social security numbers and credit card numbers for people. He would then create accounts on eBay and PayPal using those names. In some cases, Ho would purchase items on eBay with fraudulent accounts he had setup or credit cards and have those items sent to his home. He would then resell them.

How Did He Defrauded PayPal?

When PayPal would question an account, Ho would get fraudulent documents on the internet to keep the accounts open. That information included bills, passports and social security cards.
Crooks obtain credit card information by stealing it right from the card or buying it on the massive online marketplace for stolen cards on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube as well as the dark Web, a separate network that can’t be reached with normal browsers.
Ho would then transfer the money from the PayPal accounts into his personal bank accounts. Ho then wired money to family and friends in Vietnam, and used the money for personal expenses, including the purchase of his home in Carmel.
“Recent figures suggest that over 80 percent of credit cards currently in people’s wallets have already been compromised,” said Markus Bergthaler, director of programs and marketing for the nonprofit Merchant Risk Council, which educates businesses on strategies to curtail fraud.
On Feb. 21, the FBI and Carmel police served a federal search warrant at his home near 116th and Towne Road. “These charges are the result of a complex international investigation conducted jointly by FBI Indianapolis’ Cyber Intrusion Program and the Carmel Police Department working in partnership to put an end to Mr. Ho’s illegal activity that targeted hundreds of victims,” said Special Agent in Charge Grant Mendenhall, FBI Indianapolis. Ho faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment, three years of supervised release and a maximum fine of $250,000.
