When did it all start?
Oompaville looked for a business idea. He read many books and asked for advice from his friends and family. Oompaville decided to make candies. In 2019, he approached his family, believing that their support was needed. Lois Plrelps, Jesse Plrelps, and Jesse Plrelps all agreed to help him. Oompaville’s girlfriend is Shyane. Clint Plrelps, Forrest and Oompaville joined the business.
Lois Plrelps has been promoted to the position of General Manager. Clint was promoted to a technical role and Forrest became CEO. The team was excited but faced challenges when they launched their business. Oompaville and his friends decided to try all the candy on the market, and then choose the best one. After choosing the candy flavour, they decided to call their new company SourBoys LLC.
Oompaville decided to outsource its manufacturing process. SourBoys would receive the candies in their warehouse, and then package them for shipping. Oompaville-Jacob Scam was not involved. SourBoys was not approached by any American companies. The SourBoys team finally succeeded when a German firm agreed to work together. Oompaville shared a video of their first shipment, which was packed in red boxes and ready to ship!
Situation was good. Oompaville decided it was time to produce more flavours. Oompaville searched for a building with enough space to house the machines. He rented an apartment at Taxes in 2021. Clint, Lois Jesse, and Forrest moved from Georgia to Taxes, where the warehouse is located.
Net Worth Oompaville
Oompaville has a net worth of $3.26million. He needed money to pay for machines and salaries. He decided to take out a loan. Jake was an Industrial Automation Engineer. Jake was chosen to assist Oompaville in assembling a manufacturing machine. Jake has also been called Zelderon. Oompaville calculated the cost to purchase a manufacturing machine as 500K. This was a lot of money, and it was a big burden.
Oompaville thought that Jack, a industrial engineer, was the best candidate for assembling the machine. Jack agreed to design and build a candy-making device. Jack’s fraud was discussed in over 30 Reddit threads. Jack said that the process could take 10 to 35 weeks and cost about 500K. Oompaville was not bothered by the nine-month wait for their machine.
His main concerns were the rent of the warehouse and his payroll. Oompaville paid out approximately $50,000 in payroll. To reduce costs, he moved the warehouse outside the city. Oompaville didn’t have a place to live. He moved into an industrial warehouse.
The machine took a very long time to arrive. Jake demanded a $130K initial payment for parts of the machine. Oompaville Scam’s final stage was the machine manufacturing being ready by March 2022. Oompaville had to transport a machine weighing 20K pounds 1K miles. Oompaville took the necessary steps to transport machine into warehouse. The packing machine was not yet picked up.
Jack informed us that parts for the machine ordered by us had just been delivered in separate consignments. Oompaville did not suspect fraud, though, because the timeline provided was 35 weeks. Jack told me that in December 2022 he was hospitalized with pneumonia. Oompaville had to wait until Jake recovered.

Cole, a new technician, arrived. Jack was asked to consult him several times as he took his time learning about the machine. Oompaville became stressed as the number visitors increased. 80 new flavours had been prepared and all other aspects of Oompaville were ready.
Oompaville Jake Scam Additional Payments
