    In addition to these charges, Gary Jones has additional charges pending a thorough investigation for his assumed role in complicated escrow deposit scam with former attorney Holly Joy Johnson and Andrew Bloom, both of Seattle, WA. Records show that well over a million dollars was been deposited into Holly's attorney escrow between November of 2014 and July 2015. Without any written or oral authorization, Holly allegedly deposited each deposit into her personal checking account, withdrew substantial sums in cash for personal, then transferred the balance to Andrew Bloom who claims to work as a principal for both Montavo Inc. and Lighthouse Partners. To date, multiple victims have come forward with claims that Holly has disappeared along with their monies. Each of the seven victims attempt to get a full refund from either Holly or Andrew continue to be met with more stall tactics, excuses, delays or no response at all. Now, after many months of deception and significant losses, the victims have collectively agreed to seek justice.

    I believe Andrew "Drew" Bloom (approximately 38 years old) may be from Canada. He shares a name with two other Seattle area residents believed to be unrelated and know nothing of his whereabouts. According to two LinkedIn profiles, Andrew Bloom attended Seattle University and claims to have graduated with a business degree in 1995. The Seattle University registrar shows no record of his attendance in 1995 or any years prior. Though Bloom claims to be the president of business development for Bellevue-based Montavo Inc., its CEO, Mr. Brook W. Lang, appears to have no genuine interest in the background of his corporate officers. The corporate phone number for Montavo is still very much a mystery to verify Bloom's employment. Bloom also claims to be the managing partner of Lighthouse Partners LLC of Las Vegas, NV, which has been linked to an escrow deposit scam involving former attorney Holly J. Johnson, among others, and involves numerous victims. Lighthouse Partners shows as active in NV. It has several officers listed according to the secretary of state, but has no currently known address or verifiable phone number. Its domain was launched in 2013 and is managed by Daniel Done of Marketeering Group. It has since changed its "whois" status to private after multiple inquiries where made to Mr. Done about his affiliation to Lighthouse Partners and Andrew Bloom, if any.

    I too am looking for Holly Joy Johnson and Andrew "Drew" Bloom. Both have gone into hiding and are expected to be indicted on multiple counts by authorities. Holly is from North Dakota and has family there, while Andrew is somewhat of a mystery. He claims residency in multiple states but has nothing official in his legal name. He established now defunct Leewood Funding Inc. in Las Vegas some years ago under the assumed name "Andrew D. Bloom", but no public records show this person as a Washington state or Nevada resident. His has two profiles on LinkedIn which have numerous unverifiable companies listed as former employers. Bank records recovered by Washington State authorities show multiple transactions between Holly and Andrew involving significant funds transfers to his B of A account over a period of several months. Both have hurt a lot of people and have made no effort to make them whole again, though repeated attempts have made to right things. Unfortunately, at this point they're in too deep to stop investigators or prosecutors. I genuinely hope the authorities find each of these thieves before my investigators do.

    His original legal name was Andrew Vaughey. Bloom was his mother's maiden name.

    Andrew Vaughey and Nicholas Vaughey are brothers. They grew up in and around West Seattle. They have committed numerous frauds for Millions and I'm surprise they haven't been locked up already...

    Nicholas Vaughey is the eldest brother who now lives in Missouri with his girlfriend, Andrew Vaughey is the younger brother. Andrew is divorced. Bloom is their mother's maiden name.

    Andrew is still living in Seattle. He was arrested last night for beating up his ex wife at their home on Admiral Way. That house is in his name.

    Drew is also a drug and alcohol abuser as well as a wife beater. He has a long record of domestic violence and he was in jail as recently for beating his (now ex) wife terribly. He's a complete low life and I don't know how he isn't locked up.

    Andrew still lives in West Seattle, just Google his name: Andrew Vaughey
  • NoNameGiven | | 27 Sep 2016, 04:50 PM Agree 0
    Then the court is wrong. Andrew Vaughey lives in West Seattle and Nick lives in Missouri with his girlfriend. Bloom is their mother's maiden name.

    Google Andrew Vaughey, he's in West Seattle. His wife just filed a restraining order against him for beating the crap out of her.

    Lol! In light of the 6 figure sum that he stole from me, Andrew better hope I never see him again....his retarded brother who thinks he's GI JOE either. I would go after him but it sounds like with the number of people who he has stolen money from, someone will probably beat me to it. I feel bad for his wife.....NOT! She stood by for years and watched him ruin people's lives by stealing and lying all over the country. She will say she did not know but of course she did and she benefited from this ongoing conspiracy. Sounds like she finally got a taste of what she had coming!

    Andrew ("Drew") Vaughey is now divorced from Brooke Vanessa Vaughey and is the older brother of Nicholas ("Nick") Vaughey. Nick Vaughey has maintained a residence with his lifetime girlfiriend Charmaignin Lake of the Ozarks region in Missouri after fleeing the Seattle, Washington area a year or more ago. Both are dangerous and highly sociopathic.

    I found this thread as I just now saw nick vaughey, and searched him. He came into Coastal Burgers on California ave sw in west Seattle for a to go order today, 12/18/16 at 530pm. I hate that FUCK. I recognized him and was telling my daughter about him long before they called out "nick, your order is ready!" I have had bad, and very intimidating dealings with both of the vaughey (pronounced VOY) brothers. They were never able to take from me, but they certainly tried, and bullied me, and caused me a great deal of stress.
    Anyway, just wanted to make public that Nick Vaughey is in West Seattle today- if that is of concern to anyone. Coastal burgers would have record of him if he paid with card- I don't know..

    Andrew Bloom never took a dime from anyone. This claims are baseless and these people that are talking on both sides of there mouths. In addition Mr.Bloom never has any contracts with anyone regarding these claims. In addition the law should go after you people making such claims because there is word on the street that you tried to SCAM Andrew Bloom for over 1 Million Dollars. So you people should shut up because you may get sued and end up in jail for your fraud and trying to defame Mr. Bloom. Because I would sue the people making these bogus claims that you are writing. I know because both of the people here that are writing tried to defraud me for over 500K each. I am talking to attorneys and I will sue you!

    The funniest part of that last thread is you claiming to have friends. I have known you for years and you have NO friends! People that meet you, end up not liking you! The few people that liked you, either got to know you (and then didn't like you) or you stole their money! Maybe going to jail will be good for you because you might finally make some friends? Or find that romantic relationship we all knew you were dying to meet? Talking like you some sort of Kingpin with heavy juice....Please! Besides you should stop worrying about me and focus on your FELONY court case for assault. You are looking at Y-E-A-R-S! Don't worry, I will come visit you while you are locked up. You should talk nice to me or I won't bring you any cookies. You should be watching that movie "Get Hard", that will be you soon, Cuz! #Ugoingtojail!, #Ugettingthemax!, #youdeserveit!

    You're not suing anybody on behalf of Andrew "the scam artist Bloom / Vaughey", pal. You think you get online and scare the very people you've conned?! Really?!!! You wouldn't even show up for court because you'd be too scared of people meeting you there to settle up plus your fear of being served by several process servers! I alone could kick your ass just for getting online lying about the facts when numerous victims have spoken truth! I have legal documents from the the state of Washington in my possession which show former attorney Holly Joy Johnson's bank transfers of hundreds of thousands of other people's money to his Bank of America account before she went on the run from authorities and the state disciplinary board. Secondly, his legal name and aliases are all over the internet for scamming numerous companies and individuals. I'm surprised he's still breathing and expect someone to run into him to address their concerns with him personally if I don't find him first! Andrew Vaughey (aka Bloom) is a cold-hearted con artist and wife-beater who is long overdue for some serious pain!!! I'm looking for you and your snake of a brother Nicholas too! Feel free to serve me papers while I'm pummeling your lying fucking face on the asphalt!!! Next court date for your wife's case I'll be there along with a couple "colleagues" of mine and you have no idea what any of us look like!!!

    I attended college with Andrew. He was very "charming" and quite bright. Sad to see he used his talents for nefarious purposes.
