Catch me if you can man racks up more charges...this time in Knoxville, Tennessee

From WRIL -

Matthew Thomas Brock - KCSD

As we told you on Friday September 13, 2019 Matthew Thomas Brock once aligned with Pineville Community Hospital as their CFO, a would be Urology office in Middlesboro, a former managing partner for Paramount Matrix Healthcare, Dream CSX a call service center, and countless other entities, was again arrested.


As we told you the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Department charged Brock with criminal simulation and forgery in relation to an incident that occurred on September 2nd, 2019 in which Mr. Brock entered into an agreement with his victim for the lease of a building located in Tazewell TN.


Brock entered into the agreement using the name “Thomas Ryan Brock” and associated with AMT Holdings, LLC which was found to be nonexistent.


Brock has since been transferred to the Knox County Tennessee Detention Center to face even more charges of theft. WRIL has acquired the most recent affidavits of complaint against Brock. The first charge is for a computer offense $10,000-$60,000 that took place on October 8, 2018.


The complaint states that Matthew Brock sent a document called “loan information summary report” to the victim by email. It represented “John Ferguson of DML Capital Group” as providing a $2.5 million dollar loan to Brock with a funding date of October 12, 2018. Brock requested $10,000 from the victim and stated the victim could cash a $20,000 check on October 12th for a return on investment.


On October 12th the victim cashed the check from Brock and it was returned for insufficient funds. The victim attempted numerous times to contact Brock to resolve the issue and also contacted John Ferguson who stated there was no agreement with Brock for any loan, nor was it ever discussed. He went on to state that the email with the “loan information summary report” was not a document his company created or authorized.


The complaint states that Brock knowingly accessed and used a computer and computer network to obtain the $10,000 under false pretenses from the victim.


The other charge, theft of property $10,000-$60,000 from Saturday July 27, 2019, involves Fountain City Jewelers in Knoxville. Brock is charged with writing a check from First Bank to the business for $10,811.33 to purchase a gold and diamond ring that Brock stated was for his wife.


On Monday July 29, 2019 Fountain City Jewelers attempted to verify the check was valid and was told by the bank that it was written on a closed account. The jewelers made contact with Brock who stated he would have another check sent from Wells Fargo Bank, but when the check was not received, Brock was again contacted and stated he would have one mailed from Bank of America.


Fountain City Jewelers did receive a check from Wells Fargo with the name Frank Brock on it, Matthew’s father. When that check was found to have a stop payment placed on it, owner Mark Enix made contact with Brock to have him make payment or return the ring.


Brock then told Enix that he had given the ring to his attorney, Jared Graceu, and would return it on August 7, 2019. However, it was discovered that on Monday afternoon July 27, 2019 - just 4 hours after the purchase – Matthew Brock pawned the ring at Cash America on Western Avenue for $1550.00.


Matthew Brock has had several charges in at least two states and multiple jurisdictions. At least two of those counties have revoked his bond on previous charges. The next known court appearance in Knox County is October 28, 2019.
