The scammer's name "supposedly" is Charles Miller. His company is Northeast Global. His email address is:
firstname.lastname@example.org, Office Number: 1-800-355-0970, Cell#: (203) 360-7350. His "bogus" address
(listed on his website) is: 293 Tresser Boulevard, 5th Floor, Suite 6A, Stamford, CT 06901.
I am a real estate investor and my partners and I chose to utilize his lending services to acquire a 192 unit apartment complex in Kissimmee, FL for $12,000,000. He gave us a loan approval for $9,300,000 and informed us that his fee would be two-fold: 1)
$5,000.00 for a site inspection and 2) $4,500 if property was approved in site inspection. We paid him $5,000.00. He flew to the property, "approved" the deal and requested the additional $4,500 to have his attorney move forward to prepare closing docs. [continued below]....
..... To make a long story shorter, his company was so behind that his attorney didn't have time to close within our timeframe. So, he hires the seller's attorney to prepare closing docs (he did not pay him the $4,500.00, but ask him to put his fee on the HUD statement). My partners and I fly down to Miami for closing and this guy never funds the deal. At this point, we begin to do research based on the addresses he was giving us to find out that the people at these addresses don't know who Charles Miller or Northeast Global is. The wiring instructions we used to send him the $9,500 dollars is as follows:
Credit to: Northeast Inc
Receiving Bank: Bank
National Association 100 N Tryon
St Charlotte, NC
Loan Name: Outrigger Village Apartments/Ronald Jones, 1701 Mabbette St., Kissimmee, FL 34741
