Portland Police Warning Businesses of Security Scam - Seeking Information on Additional Victims

November 16, 2012 12:11

  

As recently as July of 2012, two men have solicited business by going door to door to small businesses in Portland (primarily minority owned) offering installation of video surveillance camera systems with internet access.

Portland Police have identified these suspects as 51-year-old Robert Chang-Syck Jun and 41-year-old Kevin (Kyoung) Youn.

The suspects present business cards, brochures, invoices and show up wearing shirt, tie and ID badges with their photographs on them to appear legitimate.

The Portland Police Bureau White Collar Crimes Detail currently has at least three complaints from victim businesses in which the suspects, under the business name Security One, took deposits for work to be completed 15 days later, only to have the suspects refuse to return phone calls and never attempt to complete any work or provide any product after cashing the deposits (ranging from $600 - 1,250.00).

Detectives have been unable to find a business listing for "Security One" with the Oregon Secretary of State Corporation Division.

The suspects have had business listings under several other names to include Advanced Digital Security, ADI and JUNTEC systems.

This is an ongoing investigation and the Portland Police Bureau would like to hear from anyone who has been a victim of the above described fraud.

If you are a victim of fraud by the above named individuals or businesses please contact Detective Cheryl Waddell of the White Collar Crime Detail at (503) 823-0697 or Cheryl.Waddell@PortlandOregon.gov
