The Rich Get Richer

I need to vent.

Remember Len Epstein and Phil Tagami?

No?  They’re the guys who got a primo piece of property from Walter in exchange for $10.00.  The property was valued at $13,000,000.  That’s $13 million.

This post might jog your memory:

Austin Val Verde

Turns out Tagami is behind the blight you see while driving across the Bay Bridge.  And he’s making MILLIONS doing so.

Thanks Walter.  Thanks for taking all of our money.  And thanks for making sure that the ultra-wealthy, people like Epstein and Phil Tagami, could have some of our money.

Thank you for listening.  I wish I felt better, but I don’t.

Do you?

RE LOANS FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION

RE Loans filed for bankruptcy.  While this was inevitable, no doubt, it’s still a shock to the system.  Despite the fact that it’s our money, our lives and our futures, the real bankrupt entity is the Ng Family Dynasty.  They’re morally bankrupt.  They’re ethically bankrupt.  Yet they’re still out there doing business and tricking more suckers like us out of their hard-earned savings.

Maybe Led Zepplin said it best in “When the levee breaks”

If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break,
When The Levee Breaks I’ll have no place to stay.
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home

This Is Insulting

Lunacy is defined as “Insanity, especially insanity relieved intermittently by periods of clear-mindedness.”  What’s missing at the Bar-K office is the part about intermittent clear-mindedness, as evidenced by their statement below.  They certainly have the remainder of the definition covered.

REL Statement

BREAKING NEWS!

Maribel & Walter Ng filed for bankruptcy protection yesterday, listing their estimated assets at $500,000,001 to, get this, $1 billion.  The judge assigned to the case is the Honorable Roger L. Efremsky.

Walter checked the box that says, “Debtor estimates that funds will be available for distribution to unsecured creditors.”

Please do us a favor and click the links below to learn more (and to see your name listed as a creditor). Continue reading

Did RE Loans “Park” Money?

It has come to our attention that RE Loans may have allowed some of its investors the ability and/or option to “park” money in the fund.  “Parking” is a term used to describe money that is deposited into a fund, but not necessarily invested in the fund.  Rumor has it that R.E. Loans offered a parking service for some of its preferred investors who wished to place their money somewhere on a temporary basis.  The interest earned may or may not be reported to the IRS, some have speculated.

For example, it seems possible that the $5,000,000 returned to J. Robert (“Eddie”)  Orton, III, on March 30, 2007, just a day or two before the “freeze” letter was mailed to investors, was money that had been “parked.”  Same with Len “Austin Val Verde” Epstein’s return, perhaps? Continue reading

Loan #A0110

We believe THIS DOCUMENT is very important.  We posted it on the old site.  Researcher and AnotherNgVictim batted it back-and-forth.  We’ve posted it on this site.  Now we’re posting it again.  Why?  Because we believe this is the single most important document we have discovered to date.  Do you think it’s important?  If so, why?  Please share your thoughts.

The ‘Mourning’ After

Rage faded to disappointment overnight, but returned with a vengeance this morning.  The realization (or was it a reminder?) that the valuations provided by the NG family aren’t simply inflated, but greatly exaggerated, hit like a ton of bricks.  Weissenborn and his high-priced team have been noticeably quiet.  They apparently don’t have time to update us on anything, let alone the great financial loss we sustained yesterday.  Arent Fox made money.  Stephanie & Matthew Kelly made a few bucks.  So did Innovation Capital, to the tune of $300,000 plus consulting fees of $10,000 per month.  We, however, lost everything unless, of course, you believe in divine intervention.

CA Election Results May Not Bode Well for Bar-K Investors

Jerry Brown, former CA Governor, former Oakland Mayor, current CA Attorney General, and now about to once again become CA Governor, and Oakland movers and shakers Phil Tagami and Len Epstein;

“He (Tagami) is one of Brown’s closest confidants, and though he won’t admit it, one of the most influential players in downtown Oakland. “
http://articles.sfgate.com/2005-03-18/bay-area/17364783_1_fox-theater-buildings-loma-prieta

Jerry Brown’s wedding was held in the Oakland Rotunda.  (reference the newspaper article, above.)

His latest election night party was hosted in the recently renovated Fox Theater in Oakland.  (reference again the newspaper article, above.)

Tagami and his mentor/business partner Len Epstein, both fast friends of the Ngs, are/were very large investors in RE Loans and ‘may’ have received greatly preferential treatment when they were ‘given’ the Austin Val Verde loan/property (as was previously reported here and for which there are public documents, one of which is available here:  https://barkinvestors.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/santa-barbara-documents.pdf

Reportedly, at least two requests were made of Attorney General Brown last year by RE Loans, LLC investors to investigate Bar-K, RE Loans, the Ngs, et al.  On both occasions AG Brown’s office declined to do more than give the requests even minor consideration.

Hopefully the next AG will be willing to conduct an investigation into the almost one billion dollar fiasco that is commonly referred to as Bar-K.

Assignments to Wells Fargo Foothill

A quick search of the Harris County (TX) Clerk’s Office website shows that RE Loans assigned its interests in the Bravo Marshall development to Wells Fargo Foothill (pasted below).  It’s not difficult to track down these assignments to WFF.  REL noteholders were led to believe that each and every loan was assigned to WFF.  Is this the case?  If not, why would B-4 Partners exclude certain properties from the deal with WFF?  If there were certain properties not assigned to WFF, where did they go and who got them?  Could they be viewed as preferential payouts to preferred investors?  What makes one investor more important than another?  If this happened, B-4 could be much more ethically challenged than we imagined.  As we methodically work our way down the list, loan-by-loan, we’ll see if this is true. If anyone has information on this subject they care to share, please do so here.
