Editor’s Note:  The law protects and encourages Ripoff Report to make appropriate edits to Reports posted by third parties. Ripoff Report may use that editorial power to post findings from a court of law about the subject matter of Reports. In some cases, a Court may find that specific statements made by the author of a Ripoff Report are false and defamatory.  When both sides of a dispute appear and contest the facts of a situation in court it is believed that the findings of the court are generally reliable and fair. Out of respect for the courts and the judicial process, Ripoff Report, upon request, may post that kind of finding with special prominence, and in some cases, may even redact the information specifically identified by the court as false from the original Report. In this instance, the Court Order combined with additional formal court documents received by Ripoff Report was specific enough regarding the statements made, and as such, the offending language has been (((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))) by Ripoff Report.  NOTE:  Statements that have not been redacted may not have been specifically outlined in the Court Order and/or may have been considered statements of opinion.  It is highly encouraged that consumers conduct their own additional research, from credible sources such as regulating authorities, prior to making any decisions on whether or not to do business with any individual or entity named as the information contained herein, and any negative inference derived from such information, may very well be false and misleading.

Total Falsehoods!

AUTHOR: REIT Whore - (United States of America)

Isn't it SIMPLY AMAZING that these "complaints" come in just this very moment when government and industry regulators are clamping down on a certian Long Island "Investment" <chuckle> firm? The complaints themselves are infantile in and of themselves, and rest assured they are merely the reflection of the character of the person who wrote them.

The person who writes these "complaints" is merely cowering in fear of the lifestyle that awaits: No more expensive nail wraps, no more Porsches, no more dermatology visits, no more vacations, no more expensive restaurants, no more North Shore lifestyle. All of it, up in smoke. And thousands of investors welfare with it.

Complain all you want, honey. It's all over. You're all finished.

"Milton" Doesn't Exist, and Neither Does This Story

AUTHOR: Fabulist Fictionalist - (United States of America)

Milton is an anonymous scribe who posted this story under an alias.  The actual Milton doesn't exist, and of course, neither does the story.

In reality, this fiction
 is the direct result of recently announced regulatory action against certain non-traded REITs, and a transparent personal attack on the investor advocates who precipitated it.  The facts regarding these allegations are now being reported publicly by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Kiplingers, Investment News and the Philadelphia Enquirer, among others.  

The facts regarding FINRA's investigation into the sale and promotion of non-traded REITs can be read here:

The facts regarding FINRA's specific allegations of fraudulent sales of "Apple REITs" can be read here:

Who is the Heck is Milton?

AUTHOR: Gefilte Fish - (United States of America)

Who is this Milton?? I think he is an UnMensch.

 The guy tried to call you a cheat, but he wound up calling you something that sounds more like a mollusk (shyster)!  Is he lying and blaspheming the yiddish language??

Duplicitous

AUTHOR: Standard Fiduciary - (United States of America)

Creative!  Too bad there's not a shred of truth in it.

In reality, this story is completely contrived, and it's obviously related to revelations that led to recent regulatory action against certain publicly-registered, non-traded REITs.
