Walter gets sentenced to 5 years of probation.

Kelly sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Sound off.


Jail Time Coming for Walter & Kelly?

Dan Noyes on Ng’s Fate:

The charging document, “the United States of America versus Walter Ng and Kelly Ng,” says they, in effect, looted the funds by making repeated cash withdrawals. The Ng’s are charged with “structuring transactions for the purpose of evading a reporting requirement;” 11 counts for Walter, 20 for Kelly. Each count carries a possible 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

Quick math:

  • Walter 11×10 = 110 years, $500,000 fine
  • Kelly 20×10 = 200 years, $500,000 fine

May they live that long to serve out their potential prison terms….

Where’s Bruce, we ask?

While many of us are beyond the age when a tax write off is helpful, it may provide solace for some.  John Robie’s message to everyone who got ripped off:  KEEP UP THE FIGHT.  Anyone who invested in RE Loans, RE Reno, or Mortgage Fund ’08 needs each and every one of you to stay strong and keep the pressure on.  Kudos to Brown and Bernard Wittenburg, amongst many others, for their efforts.

Finally, thanks to Dan Noyes for being the only reporter in the NATION who has stayed on top of this story.

“Freedom Lies In Being Bold”

The title is a quote from the author Robert Frost, which is certainly apropos as we’ve just unearthed this “COMPLAINT FOR AIDING AND ABETTING BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY”.

It was filed against Armanino McKenna in the names of three brave investors who have taken on the burden of leading the charge for the greater good of the whole.

Thank you to Theodore Jones, Jeanie Kayser-Jones and (not the author) Robert Frost.

SEC Sues Walter, Kelly and Bruce for Fraud

By now, you’ve all likely heard the great news.  Stories are everywhere.





Here (my personal favorite as it calls them “fraudsters”)


What’s it mean for Mortgage Fund ’08 investors?

What’s it mean for RE Loans investors?

Does it mean anything for RE Reno investors?

Weigh in….



If you thought Michael Cooley of Akin Gump was on your side, think again.  Cooley was a regular visitor to this site when he was pimping for a yes vote on the reorganization plan.  He got what he wanted and hasn’t been back since.  Sadly, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t continued his manipulative ways.

John Robies – (hmmm, just how many of us are there?) everywhere are doing their best to stay civil after your latest shenanigan.  Trust us, it ain’t easy.

If you care to click on this link (000981), you’ll see that Cooley is spending OUR money pursuing the true identity of Equitatus.  Why?  Well, Cooley works at the bequest of Walter and Kelly the Creditor’s Committee, who purportedly report to us.  I’m sure this is a truly pressing matter for them.  Rather than focus on recovering our hard earned life savings, they feel the need to file an emergency motion to lift Equitatus’ veil.

Who’s next?  John Robie and everyone who has ever posted a comment on a REL-related blog?  Stop screwing around and get us our pennies on the dollar before we die.

Shame on you, Michael Cooley.  Shame on the entire Creditor’s Committee.  You’re a farce and a disgrace.


How Did You Vote?

Please vote one time for every ballot you received.


This is the best we can do?

Just accept the plan.  It’s the best we can do.  Wells Fargo didn’t do anything wrong.  We’re not in cahoots with the Ngs.  We weren’t chosen by the Ngs.  Our counsel wasn’t chosen by the Ngs.  We’re independent.  We’re looking out for you.  We have your best interests at heart.  We know more than you.  You don’t understand.  You’re not smart enough.  You should trust us.

Sick and tired of hearing these insulting types of comments made by members of the creditor’s committee and Walter and Kelly’s friends?  Vote to REJECT the plan.

When Robert Brower, Dixon Collins and many, many others who have fought tirelessly on behalf of the 99% are telling us to REJECT THE PLAN, throwing up your hands and siding with insiders (the 1%) who are covering their own asses is the wrong solution.  Reject the plan.  Reject the notion that you can be duped AGAIN.

Fool me once shame on you.  Fool me twice shame on me.
