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.

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

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
