Associates Finance Bankers and Enrique Gonzalez are operating a scam. First of all, his website list fraudulent closed transactions. IF you do your due diligence, he has not closed the Sonesta Hotel in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica because Sonesta doesn't even have a property in Jaco Beach. This was confirmed via the board of directors for Sonesta and can be confirmed on Sonesta's website. His other projects are also fraudulent as he did not close the Century Grand project in Doral Florida as it also can be confirmed via a phone call to the offices of Century Grand in Doral.
Another issue is that he lists his office as 2301 87th Ave in Doral and that is an empty space as he doesn't have an office in that building.
In getting to the matter at hand, he charged my clients over $45,000 to do a loan and would not even answer a call or an email after receiving the money. Before paying he constantly harassed my clients to hurry up and pay only to disappear after receiving the money. He gave us paperwork after paperwork identifying himself as the lender and after finally catching up with him, he states he is not the lender and that he sent the money to the lender. When asked to provide proof that he sent the money to the lender he can not come up with any proof of doing so. When we asked why did he state he was the lender and why send the money to him directly instead of the lender, he stated he was a licensed correspondent lender in Florida. This is also a lie. He has never had any licenses and any such licenses would only be required for residential mortgages and not commercial. The only thing that was to have been found close to his business was a license held by his wife Maria and it is expired.
This man is a liar and a con artist. Stay away from him and beware.
