Yesterday we posted an exclusive about Jerry Lawler’s former podcast host Glenn Moore scamming Lawler’s fans. Glenn would do a myriad of things, would use Patreon, Social Media and the podcast to entice fans to purchase artwork, memorabilia or podcast spots and not deliver. Since the article was posted, many more fans have stepped forward.
First is Jason Lurie, who was featured on a Memphis news station WMC5 last night. The news clip was posted in our previous post. I spoke with Jason after the news piece aired and he opened up about his experience and thoughts on the matter.
All the victims have similar stories. I’m no different. I waited 9 months for mine custom oil painting. He refunded me $1500 twice only to have it bounce both times. I’m in an additional $750 in court costs and legal fees, so my all in at this point is $2250. I don’t understand how JL could not have seen the court letters, the cert letters that were mailed to his house – after Glenn was fired. This shouldn’t be such a surprise to him in my opinion. I think the surprise was being caught off guard so quick by so many people. But, whatever the case may be, he needs to do right and settle up with victims immediately and not screw around. He can take all the time he needs to sue/prosecute Glenn. That’s not a concern for the victimized fans. Make good with the fans, restore hope and credibility with fan base and move forward. Dragging your feet on this will only make the situation get worse.
He got served papers – whether he knows it or not. There’s a court date coming up. Lawler claims he doesn’t know anything about this.
The lawyers had been dealing with Glenn for months. He had them convinced I would get my money back. They waited and waited. Excuse after excuse. No money. Finally they cut ties with Glenn and went after JL. But he never replied to the lawyers.
Here’s the baffling part which I don’t get… in the interview Jerry says he parted ways in Dec with Glenn. That means he was fired. Where did all my cert mails and legal letters go to that were delivered to his house in March and May. Initially JL told reporter that Glenn lived in the house and must have intercepted mail. Well that makes no logical sense. You don’t let your ex agent live in your house if you fired him. Then he said that Glenn controlled his twitter and FB account for a long time. I can’t imagine Lauren, being younger and more tech savvy, being ok with this arrangement. So, there are lots of holes in the story that need to be filed in. But we are making progress.Jason Lurie
Another fan who came forward goes by the Instagram handle @AWrestlingHistorian
So I took him up on his offer to have Jerry Lawler give me a shout out on my Instagram account for a future episode of his podcast.
I thought to myself “How cool would be it to have The King do that?” I took the opportunity for this great honor.
Glenn was being pushy, but I didn’t think much of it at the time because that’s how some guys do business with limited time deals and I made the stupid decision to send the amount of money I won’t disclose as Friends and Family at his advice for both of us to save money. It seemed like a good idea at the time and I thought I could trust him due to his connection to Mr. Lawler.
And as you can see in the following back and forth business conversation we had on Twitter DM, I tried to be patient. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt before I slowly realized I had also been robbed by Glenn Moore:@AWrestlingHistorian on Instagram
And that was the last conversation I had with him. I realized all hope was gone when no new episodes of Dinner With The King had been uploaded.
After Mr. Lawler revealed his falling out, I e-mailed Mr. Moore to return the funds politely as a final chance for him with me, but there was no response which is what made me come forward with my story to you guys.
Moral of the story: ALWAYS send PayPal payments as good and services! You won’t regret it later.@AWrestlingHistorian on Instagram
After I received those two stories, another fan decided to share their story, this fan chose to remain anonymous
2 months ago I bought in to the Patronage page for the pod cast. As of a couple of days ago it was still up. I talked to Glenn about it. It was the $155 a month level to host a pod cast.
I cancelled 8 hours before the 3rd month was charged because I realized I haven’t heard from anyone
He tried to sell me the same shirts
Well just for just what is listed as what is listed on the pateron page is going to be lots of people. Then the art work and shirts is a whole different ball game
Oh sure. Luckily I smelled something fishy about the shirts and was lucky enough to cancel before I was charged the 3rd monthAnonymous
The anonymous fan wants people to know that the Patreon is still open, so if you are subscribed you can file a complaint with Patreon. If you are thinking of subscribing, don’t.
Britt Beamz chose to share her story after hearing about so many other people that got screwed over.
Paid $130 on May 31st for 2 of his shirts that were supposed to be signed by Jerry. Never received them and every single time I would send a message to Glenn about it, he gave me excuse after excuse.Britt Beamz
It’s amazing how many people have gotten the same sales pitch, the same excuses and the same empty promises. As more people hear about this scam, more people are stepping forward.
We here at Bodyslam will do our best to let everyone’s voice be heard, if you or someone you know has been scammed by Glenn Moore, there are a couple things you can do to fight back.
File reports/complaints with PayPal or credit cards to try to get that started. Save what info you have but the most important thing is to file a police report in their area. It will then be forwarded to his local PD. You can file a complaint with the FBI Cyber Crimes, or reach out to Jerry Lawler. Only problem with reaching out to Jerry is that there isn’t a surefire way to get ahold of him.
