Red Barn Hay Co. ripoff

Update by user Jun 27, 2012

Hello Everyone,

Here is an update to the Red Barn Hay Company ripoff. Mark Broeg will be arraigned on 7/18/12 in Crook county.

His arraignment was moved due to new indictments. His case number is 11FE0045. He also has a probation violation hearing on 7/25/12 case number CR0900208. All this information is found on the Crook County Circuit Court website.

I had to dig a little but it\'s there. Thanks to all that called the DA and FBI.

If you hear of anyone else getting ripped off call the numbers that were provided below. I won\'t be happy till I see the mugshot.

RC Cheatwood,

Please contact the numbers in this continuing post. He will be stopped by US!

Getting the attention of law inforcement has been long overdue but will come to a head very soon. There is information of others that are working with him named \"Smokey\" and Ron Seminal. Please report them to the police or FBI. These are not the only ones out there and I can imagine the legal system is overwhelmed by them so that\'s why we all need to ride together and keep the information flowing to the right people.

Thanks to everyone. I\'ll keep you posted.

Well it looks like Mr. Broeg has messed up once more.

He went after the wrong person that has nothing to do with posting their frustrations as we all do. Please, if you have had a bad experience call the numbers in these postings. I know that we\'ll probably not get our money back but one of these days I\'ll be happy to post his mugshot!

Let\'s all ride together and put him away.

Thanks! I\'ll keep everyone posted.

UPDATE-Mark Broeg has decided to try to sue people in court over loss of busniness and libel. He\'ll have to sue the entire internet since there is nothing good about him to be found!

Call the numbers you see to file a report. We horse owners need to ride together on this and place Mr.

Broeg behind bars. Keep up the comments because we may be able to stop someone else from getting ripped off.

Mark Broeg of Red Barn Hay Company took our money for 100 bales of hay and did not deliver the hay. It's been 4 months dealing with Mark and he has promised to return our money but no refund yet. He does not answer his phone but calls back later to tell us he's going to send our money but has not sent a dime yet. We have filed with BBB of Oregon but have not met with success since they dropped him from their ranks. We have also filed with the FTC but that process is slow. Don't deal with Mark Broeg or Red Barn Hay company. Mark Broeg is the key factor here. He changes his address often and most of the addresses are not real if you check them on Google maps.

Has anyone who has posted received their hay? Or money. We have used red barn for a couple of years and we did receive our hay lat year.


Thats terible, i hope they get to the bottom of this, i no people who ordered hay from there


I sent him a check for 3 grand in april and have not gotten my hay!! This hurts me bad as a small business owner.

Who do I contact? How can I help?


Daniel Barringer is with the FBI. I just spoke to him.

He said he his have trouble locating the victims directly. If you have numbers or names, send them to him.

The more info you can provide, the fast he can build his case.

His email is daniel.barringer@*** or fax the information to 541-382-****.


I have a mug shot of Broeg. The Clackamas County (Portland) District Attorney had him arrested after Bend, OR police looked him up.

The office used me to report possible income over $500 so they could go after it.

They did not care that he was ripping off people for the money. They were absolutely no help in stopping this man.


Have been chasing Broeg for 2 years. Spoken with Oregon Department of Justice, Oregon FBI, Deschutes Co.

Sheriff's Department, Crook County District Attorney's Office, Oregon State Police. Have begged them to stop him. He ripped off 100 investors in 90s of about $1 million. He and another scam artist ripped off several Vancouver WA area in real estate scams.

Many families lost their homes. He is suing me! I have been posting warnings on Craigslist for over a year. Crook Co.

in Prineville, OR convened a secret grand jury last month in which 13 victims testified. All that information will be release by May 9. Contact Crook Co. District Attorney, Vickie Schwartz.

Give her all your information. Broeg has ripped off an elderly man of his life savings; a Korean businessman of $50,000; a Washington man of $21,000. There are many more I have talked to personally. Please send your information to Oregon State Police in Bend, Oregon.

They have been investigating this finally. So many victims could have been saved if I could have convinced law enforcement to investigate. They just wouldn't do it.

I live in Kansas and have made 4 trips to Oregon to try to speak with law enforcement. Couldn't get sheriff's deputy to even step out into the lobby.


Both the FBI and Oregon Police (led by Bend unit) are just beginning to ramp up their investigations of Mark Broeg and his fraudulent activity under the Red Barn Hay Company. Your reports, documents, etc. will be useful to them.


He is under investigation for fraud. Contact

Mark B is using Black Butte Hay company now instead of Redbarnhay.


Same here, ordered in February, refund request in April...nothing. Online search indicates a *** man w/several criminal records and bookings..too bad didn't do research beforehand.

Lodged complaint with BBB, Oregon Police (Milwaukie), FTC, but I'm sure he's laughing at all of us. Crook.


Folks,If you have a complaint about Red Barn Hay Company, please contact me at the number below. Thanks.-Dan B.541-330-****


Ordered a truckload, close to $8k, he took money up front and never delivered. Do not do business with him. We have turned over to Oregon police.


contact;***.com - another PO'd buyer

vicky.schwartz@*** - Deputy DA in Crook County Oregon


Mark Broeg has promised for over 3 months to refund our money since he did not deliver the hay but nothing. We also went to BBB and have not been satisfied.

Don't buy from this guy no matter what he changes his new company to. He also gives false addresses on his whereabouts.
