Man Accused Of Swindling Local Businesses

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Local businesses said they are out thousands of dollars after a man with high-end taste bought luxury items with bogus checks.

"You know God help him; he needs more than the clothes he took from me than I need it, but it's wrong," said Manuel Cuevas of Manuel American Designs.

Cuevas said Steven Goldmann bought thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise, from custom-made handbags and clutches to one-of-a-kind clothes.

Steven Goldmann has been arrested on a fugitive from justice charge for outstanding warrants out of Montana.

Metro Police are investigating him now for fraud and theft charges after a number of businesses said he bought thousands of dollars' worth of items and services, including rides in a stretch Hummer Limousine from Metro Livery.

"We serviced him in good faith," said Teresa Anglin with Metro Livery. "We thought he was intending to pay us."

Goldmann also reportedly rented a house on South Curtiswood Drive, which is just doors away from the Governor's mansion, also with a worthless check. Detectives said they are working to identify more witnesses.

Goldmann is expected in court on January 9. More charges could be pending.
